    In this day and age where there is an abundance of evil and Jahil speakers luring in the public, there is surely a greater need for Ulema e Haqq to speak more.

    Also, due to the shortage of capable scholars, teaching has also become much more important.

    I would say 40% speaking, 40% teaching, 20% speaking.

    And yeah, surely varies place to place, era to era. I would say even age matters a lot!

    was talking to a few brothers yesterday who asked if Alahazrat delivered many speeches. I said as far as I know, he would deliver the speech every Friday* and then only 2 more in the whole year: milad un nabi sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam in Bareilly sharif and at the urs in marehra sharif.

    what do brothers feel is the ideal tradeoff between the three - if any? does it differ from one era to another and from place to place?

    e.g. Alahazrat gave maybe >80% of his time to writing - perhaps ~10% to teaching - <3% to speeches - this excludes the time he spent reading [muTala'ah]. this was in c.late 19-early 20 india in the environment he lived.

    * again showing how important the Friday speech is.
