Ad-Da'wat ul-Haadiyat ul-'Alaviyah(A'lallaaho Manaaraha wa Zikraha)
The Official Website of the 44th ad-Da'i al-Mutlaq al-Haqq Saiyedna Abu Haatim Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb (tus)
The seventh mubaarak month of Rajab ul-Murajjab is remembered for the Zikraa and ‘Urs Mubaarak of 43rd Da’i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Yusuf Nooruddin saheb (aq) whose Rawzah Shareefah is located behind the Masjid-e-Nooraani in Badri Mohalla. By his Razaa Mubaarak the Jaame’ Masjid was conceptualized and it got completed in the year 1393 when Muqaddas Maulaa did iftitaah in the same year in the month of Zul Qa’adah. Today after the span of 43 years, it is the testimony for the Maulaa’s far-sightedness in fulfilling the need for the large and spacious masjid with the growing population of our Jamaa’at.
Anjuman-e-Azaa’-e-Husain, which is organizing the ‘Urs Mubaarak of Ahl ul-Bayt (as) and Du’aat-e-Kiraam (aq), is the only committee today founded by Muqaddas Maulaa. Maulaa was its founder member and it was the rasm that every year on the Pehli Raat of Moharram ul-Haraam, Maulaa used to call a meeting and do majlis and do hidaayat for the next course of action of the committee. In the first photo from the left, Muqaddas Maulaa is seated in the centre and on his right is Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) and on his left is Bhaisaheb Hebatullaahbhai.
It is from the Rusoomaat-e-Taiyebiyah that when a Da’i goes for the opening-iftitaah of any premises, by his dast-e-maymoon he do ‘alaamat on a piece of white paper and mumineen should photo-frame it and place it in a hall for Barakaat and Rizq. ‘Alamaat means Da’i writes “Bismilaah” and Du’aa with red ink. In the second photo Muqaddas Maulaa is performing this rasm of ‘Alamaat.
Water is the source of Life and it surely affects the human mentality and manner. Water should be taken in a proper way, proper time and in a proper quantity. Water given by a Da’i with the purity of his nafs holds a special and divine meaning as Water is nothing but ‘ilm. In the third photo Muqaddas Maulaa is performing the rasm on “Paani ni Ghari” and reciting Du’aa on its water. Mumineen then sprinkle it on the corners of their house and the remaining they use for drinking. Du’aa builds a positive effect on the water and one who drinks it gets benefitted by its healing power.
Sister Zainab Hamiduddin Bhaisaheb achieved a notable distinction by getting a Gold Medal in the post graduation of LLB (Faculty of Law, MSU, Baroda) on 6/2/2015. She has made us feel proud as this achievement is the first of its kind in our jamaa'at. We congratulate her and hope for the best for her career in Judiciary.
Haddsaheb Ahmadalibhai “Alavi” who is closely associated with Mishkaat ul-Haadi Akhbaar since many years has secured 2nd rank among 70 candidates in Essay Competition held by “Seva-Tirth” association. Seva-Tirth operates from Tarsali, Vadodara, and helps people fight against the Leprosy and conducts programs for awareness and rehabilitation.
Immediately Rasoolullaah (saws) thumped three times in his left side at three different places. Jibra’eel Farishta said that, “O Mohammad! May Allaah grace you with His Rahmat, if you or your mumin happen to see such fearful and inauspicious dream then you should recite this Du’aa. After these Kalemaat, recite Surat ul-Faatehah (al-Hamdo lillaah), Surat un-Naas (Qul a’ooza be-Rabbin Naas), Surat ul-Falaq (Qul a’ooza be-Rabbil Falaq) and Surat ul-Ikhlaas (Qul howallaaho Ahad) and then thump three times on your left side. If you do this ‘amal, no Shaitaan will able to harm you at all.
Mumineen and children who are terrified and afraid of the ill-effects of Bad and Evil Dreams should always do this ‘amal which Rasoolullaah (saws) practiced when the same thing happened with Maa Faatemah (as). Along with this, mumineen should always do Tahaarat-Wuzoo before going to sleep at night and recite Salawaat on Ahl ul-Bayt (as) and also develop this healthy and nooraani habit in their children.
It is grim scenario that our Gujarat State is now reeling under the dangerous attack of Swine Flu and it is going out of control day by day going to become an epidemic and lots of people have succumbed to this dreaded disease. Deeply concerned about the situation Huzoor-e-‘Aali Bawaji saheb Maulaa has directed to give Ruhaani Nuskhah and ‘Ilaaj so that Mumineen could protect themselves from the Barakaat of Qur’anic Aayaat and Salawaat. Du’aa is the Best Weapon for a Mumin and it is the time that a faithful mumin take refuge in the Aamaal of our Du’aat-e-Keraam (ra). You should recite this Du’aa everyday in Fajr or at Night for 110 times with Wuzu sitting in front of Qiblah until the situation normalizes. Mumieen are requested to take every necessary precautions and visit the Doctor immediately if symptom of Flu becomes evident.
He started taking Misaaq of the mumineen in the village of Haus and nearby towns in the name and behalf of Imaam Taiyeb (as). He illuminated the hearts of mumineen with the Noor of Knowledge in the darkness of the seclusion of Imaam Taiyeb (as) and explained them the intricacies of the seclusion of Imaam. He appointed Saiyedna al-Khattaab (aq) as Mazoon-e-Mutlaq and Saiyedna Ibraahim bin Husain (aq) as Mukaasir-e-Mutlaq.
During the hospitalization of Huzoor-e-‘Aali Bawaji saheb Maulaa (tus) in Rabi’ ul-Awwal-January, many mumineen took minnat-nazar, did sadaqaat, recited Qur’an-e-Kareem, did ziyaarat of Mawaali Taahereen (ra), did zabeehat and du’aa for the shifaa-yaabi of their Maulaa. Due to these efforts and aamaal of mumineen, Allaah Ta’aala has shown mufeed result by bestowing Shifaa Kaamelah to Bawaji saheb Maulaa, and his saaya of Hidaayat and Shafqat will remain on us till the Day of Qeyaamat when our soul will ascend to Heavens along with the majma’ of Imaam and Da’i.
The 32nd Da'i-e-Mutlaq, S. Ziyauddin Saheb took along the Alavi Bohras and migrated from Ahmedabad to Vadodara in 1700 AD. Seeing the devotion and simplicity of the Alavi Bohras towards their religion, Miya Mahmud, a Shi’a by religiongifted the Wadi area to the Da’i to establish Madrasah, Mosque and Houses. It was the place from where fruits, flowers and vegetables were supplied to the then ruler of Vadodara. When the mosque al-Masjid un-Noorani situated at the corner of Badri Mohalla, Wadi, was completed in 1973 AD after six years of construction, the skyline of Vadodara city was very low. There was much of a philosophy of single-double storied construction. The Gaekwadi Laxmi Vilas Palace and Nazarbaug Palace was clearly visible from the Mosque’s terrace.
By the Du’aa-e-Ma’soor of Saiyedna saheb Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus), Ra’s ul-Hudood Dr. Zulqarnain Hakimuddin saheb (zi) performed Hajj last year and took barakaat of the mubaarak Zameen of Baytullaah which is the birth-place of the master of our Imaan Ameer ul-Mumineen Maulaana ‘Ali (as) and the place of the Quboor of Ambiyaa where people do Tawaaf. Along with Ra’s ul-Hudood saheb there were 14 mumineen-muminaat and all of them performed the Arkaan and Manaasik of Hajj together especially during the Hajj Ayyaam. The photo-album reflects the holiness of the maqaamaat-e-muqaddasaat.
Bayt-e-Muneer: 41st ad-Da'i ul-Mutlaq al-Faatemi al-'Alavi Saiyedna Fakhruddin saheb (aq) did ta’leef-o-tasneef (composition) and madeh-khwaani in the shaan of Mohammad Rasoolullaah (saws) and Aal-e-Mohammad (sa). Among such abyaat, there is a bayt “Wa may Yarjush Shafaa’at Yauma Hashrin”, which Muqaddas Maulaa composed in 1336 AH, i.e. before 100 years. Here Maulaa brings forth the fact that the faith of a mumin mainly depends on the Walaayat of Ahl ul-Bayt, who are Imaams from the progeny of Rasoolullaah (saws) and only they will do Shafaa’at of the ones with gunaah and ma’siyat. Every time and every people has an Imaam and he is the fountainhead of all birr-good things and nobility. To commemorate and honour its 100th year of composition, we bring in the khidmat of mumineen this brilliant bayt in Arabic and also its shareh-understanding in Lisaan ud-Da’wat.
Musallaa (Prayer Mat): The musallaa (masalla-prayer-mat) on which Saiyedna Fakhruddin saheb (aq) prayed namaaz and did Du’aa for mumineen at Devdi Mubaarak as well as in the old mosque (Masjid-e-Ziyaai, Badri Mohalla) was made in the 1336 AH. By the farmaan of Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) we are publishing this rare photo on our website. It is recently framed in the office of Mazoon Maulaa. Since 1336 AH Muqaddas Maulaa used to offer namaaz of Laylat ul-Qadr, ‘Eid, Washeek, Laylat ul-Me’raaj, Laylat un-Nisf on this jaa-namaaz (musallaa) till his Intiqaal in 1347 AH. Thereafter Saiyedna Badruddin saheb (aq) used this ba-barakat musallaa during his time for 30 years. When the zamaana of Saiyedna Yusuf Nooruddin saheb (aq) and Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus) came, it was occasionally used only for Faazil nights. This is the historic musallaa on which 4 du’aat offered namaaz and prayed for the maghferat and najaat of Mumineen.
Huzoor-e-'Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) always quote this aayat-e-shareefah in his bayaan that, "Surely Allaah Ta'aala will never change the Condition of a Jamaa'at until they themselves change it (with their own efforts), but when Allaah Ta'aala wishes Punishment for the People, there can be no escape from it."
Audio Naseehat of Saheb-e-Da’wat to Alavi Parents for the Marriage of their Children
Higher Education, Alavi Societal Deprivation, Faulty Upbringing and Undue Freedom is taking its toll on our Youth. Saheb-e-Da’wat is deeply concerned with this shocking trend where our farzand-dukhtar are mindlessly opting for marriage outside our community where parents are irresponsibly supporting this either by delaying or rejecting the nisbat-engagement proporsal of their children in our Jamaa’at . Feeling its seriousness and to address it urgently Saheb-e-Da’wat is taking this burning issue among mumineen-muminaat by holding meetings and explaining its ill-effects extensively in bayaanaat to come to certain consensus to plug this bid’at. Here we are bringing excerpts of the bayaan of Mazoon Maulaa which he has delivered on the miqaat of Shab-e-‘Urs-e-Rasoolullaah (saws). Certain issues and opinions are discussed in this bayaan, so mumineen should definitely listen it carefully and follow the hidaayaat for the well-being of their family and khaandaan.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Mazoon ud-Da’wat il-‘Alaviyah Haatim Zakiyuddin Saheb (dm) at 09:30 hrs. In the inaugural speech, he remembered the obstacles faced by the members in running the organization. He praised the members about their dedication and devotion in the work. He emphasized the importance of home industries in the present demanding time.
43rd Da’i ullaahil Ameen Saiyedna Yusuf Nooruddin saheb (aq) wrote this bayt mubaarak in one of his hafti on 15 Rabi’ ul-Aakhar 1388 AH on Devdi Mubaarak. During his Da’wat period, this bayt was frequently recited in Majlis-o-Mehfil and it is the tradition of Da’wat-e-Shareefah to begin the majlis of this type of abyaat in which there is fazaa’il, manaaqib and sift-o-sanaa of Ahl ul-bayt (as). As no majlis is complete without this.
Aye Shafi'-e-Roz-e-Mehshar As-Salaato was Salaam,
Aye Habeeb-e-Rabb-e-Akbar As-Salaato was Salaam.
We strongly believe in what has been inherited as the Legacy from Rasoolullaah (saws) down to Maulaana Ali (as) followed by A’immat-e-Taahereen (as) and Du’aat ul-Akrameen (aq). This is the legacy of Knowledge (Qur’an) and Hikmat (Ahaadees) which is continued till now in its original form. We believe that Hujjatullaah (representative of Allaah) is always present on this Earth, may it be in the form of Nabi, Wasi, Imaam or Da’i – who guides the mumineen to the Shari’at of Allaah. One who follows this Divine chain is a Faatemi, Taiyebi, Isma’ili, Alavi Mumin. If anyone does not follow this principle and Aqeedah and makes changes in the Shari’at does not have a right to be called as Alavi Mumin.
Audio: Mazoon Maulaa in his impressive bayaan dealt with three Qur’anic verses pointing towards the Martyrs, Witness for the Actions, Rizq and the Holy Company-Sohbat and Rifaaqat of Awliyaaullaah
Walaa Tahsabannallazina Qotelu fi Sabilillaahe Amwaatan bal Ahyaaun ‘inda Rabbehim Yurzaqoon (Surat Aal-e-‘Imraan 169)
And reckon not those who are killed in the Way of Allaah as Dead, no, they are Alive and are provided Sustenance-Rizq from their Lord
Wa may yote’illaaha war Rasoola fa-Olaayekallazina an’amallaaho ‘alayhim minan Nabiyeena was Siddiqeena wash Shohadaae was Saaleheen, wa Hasona Olaayeka Rafeeqan, Zaalekal Fazlo minallaahe wa Kafaa billaahe ‘Aleeman (Surat un-Nisaa 69-70) And whoever obeys Allaah Ta’aala and his Rasool, those people are with the ones upon whom Allaah has bestowed Ne’mat (of Taqwaa and Ikhlaas) from among the Ambiyaa, the truthful Awsiyaa, the Martyrs A’immat and Du’aat and the Noble Mumineen. And how a goodly company are they. This is the Fazl-merit from Allaah, and Sufficient is Allaah as the All-Knower.
Wa kazaaleka ja’alnaakum Ummataw Wasatal letakunu Shohadaa ‘alan Naase wa yakunar Rasoolu ‘alaykum Shaheedan (Surat ul-Baqarah 143) Thus like that we have made you a Righteous Ummat (of A’immat ul-Haqq and Hudaa) that you may be the Witnesses to the mumineen (about their actions) and that the Rasool (Mohammad ul-Mustafaa (saws)) may be the Witness to you
Video: Near the Qabr-e-Anwar of Muqaddas Maulaa in the Rawzah Mubaarakah of his grand-father Saiyedna Shaikh Aadam saheb (aq), Mazoon Maulaa along with Hudood and Mumineen doing Ma'tam on Ahl ul-Bayt (as), reciting Qaseedah Shareefah and doing Khusoosi Du'aa for the Talab il-Hajaat of Duniyaa and Aakherat and for the Well-being of all Zaayereen
Akhbaar: Iftetaah-e-Muneer of one of the Aayat-e-Badriyah: Mumbai - 10-8-1435 AH Badri Masjid
Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus) emphasized that Badri Masjid is the pride of mumineen of Mumbai and an eternal gift of Saiyedna Badruddin Saheb (aq). He reiterated that it is a historic event that,
“I am seeing mumineen of Mumbai and Vadodara together in such a huge crowd gathered in the Iftetaah of Masjid. Alavi Bohras have never witnessed such a crowd in the history. It is the Nooraaniyat and Roohaniyat of the Masjid that has attracted the mumineen of Vadodara in such large numbers. Namaazi-Worshippers are the beauty of Masjid.”
Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) expressed his wish to construct the Rozah Shareefah of Saiyedna Badruddin Saheb (aq) long ago whose Qabr-e-Athar had a Chhatri (concrete ceiling). With the Razaa Mubaarak of Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus), construction of the Rozah started 15 months back at the time when there was no funds necessary for the complete construction. Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus) encouraged Mazoon ud-Da’wat (dm) to begin the construction with the available fund – though inadequate. He envisaged the Mo’jizah of Muqaddas Maulaa and said, “Saiyedna Badruddin Saheb (aq) will help you in the construction and Insha-allaah the funds will pour in.”

After highlighting the occurrences of manipulation done with the historic facts by the publications of other Bohra communities, the account of Saiyedi Ameenji bin Jalaal (ra) also seem to be shrouded in the mystery. In this article we will make a serious attempt to bring forth the manipulations done with the historical facts about Saiyedi Ameenji bin Jalaal (ra). Role of Saiyedi Ameenji bin Jalaal (ra) is of utmost importance as far as the Haqqaaniyat of Nass of 29th Alavi Da’i Saiyedna ‘Ali bin S Ibraahim ash-Shaheed (aq) is concerned.
Mystery surrounding the Historical events of Saiyedi saheb (ra)
Manipulation in his Date of Intiqaal
What 'Alavi Taareekh says about Saiyedi saheb (ra)
Mazoon Maulaa will insha-allaah impart the khusoosi nikaat-important points based on Fiqh, Tareekh, Falsafah, Mantiq, Taweel-o-Haqeeqat, Qur’anic interpretation based on Ta’leemaat of Faatemi A’immat & Du’aat, Seerat-e-Awliyaa, Aadaab-e-Tarbiyat and current affairs of Jamaa’at on every Saturday at 08:00 pm for an hour. This is meant only for Khuddaam of Da’wat who have preliminary knowledge of Taiyebi Doctrines and Tenets, but those who are keen in acquiring this ‘Uloom-e-Haqq should personally contact the Vezaarat officials of Da’wah Shareefah. Razaa will be granted to sincere mumineen who are aware of the Barakaat of ‘Uloom-e-Da’wat.
Da'wat-e-Haadiyah Publication: Release of the Booklet of
This beautiful booklet named "Ad’eeyat-o-Salaat-e-Yaum il-Jomo’ah" is the collection of different supplications, prayers, merits and ahkaam related to Friday which happens to be the most revered and rewarding day for Mumineen. It is the day when Allaah Ta’aala orders angels to descend on the places where mumineen recites salawaat, offers namaaz and do du’aa and in turn wipe out all sins and bestow them with unending blessings. In order to benefit themselves mumineen-muminaat should always keep this booklet with them while going to masjid for Jomo’ah prayer
Since Wuzoo is an integral part of the Shari’at of Allaah it is very important that every mumin should know how to perform Wuzoo correctly. Though Wuzoo is taught in the Madrasah, but with the passing time, many things are forgotten which should be refreshed in the minds of the mumineen. Considering these facts, Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna Saheb (tus) gave Razaa Mubaarak to compose a Video of Wuzoo which would be helpful to the students of Madrasah as well as to the mumineen in general too.The video is recorded in two languages – Lisaan ud-Da’wat (Gujarati) and English (for the mumineen who have difficulty in reading and understanding Lisaan ud-Da’wat). This would also be helpful to the mumineen who wants to correct their Wuzoo before going to Hajj and ‘Umrah.
There are two types of ghusl, the obligatory (compulsory) ones (farz) and the
recommended ones (sunnat). There are seven obligatory ritual baths. The ritual
bath should be preceded by Istinjaa and wuzu as described earlier. While doing
wuzu you should take the name of the ghusl for which you are purifying yourself. First the impurity should be removed from the private parts with water and thereafter
water should be poured freely over the whole body. The hands should be used to
cleanse that part of body, which they can reach. No part of the body should remain
dry and being not washed by water and massaged by the hand.
The succession of the true and blessed Da'wat, which exists on the facade of the earth from the beginning of creation till the Day of Resurrection (Qayaamat) , continues to disengage us from the bodily confinement and personifies our deeds, abiding to the shari'at, and ascends us to the sanctity and sacredness through the path of salvation (najaat). The competent authority of Allaah (Hujjat) is always present on this globe below the skies, either publicly (zaahir) or in the veil (satar, baatin). Allaah Ta'aala says in the Qur'an that, ‘This practice (sunnat) has been continuing from timeless periods and there is no possibility of change or alteration in it; and in every era there is a fiend, infernal and hellish Satan (Shaitaan) against the divine and saintly authority of Allaah (Hujjat).'
