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.”

Laylat un-Nisf(Night of 15th Sha'baan ul-Kareem) - 1435
Majlis of 187th 'Urs Mubaarak of 37th Da'i ul-Mutlaq Saiyedna Shamsuddin Shaikhali bin Saiyedna Shamsuddin Saheb (aq) was assembled in Masjid un-Noorani on 25th Rajab ul-Asab 1435 after the Maghrib Namaaz after doing the Ziyaarat of Muqaddas Maula in Bostaan-e-Badri. The Majlis was presided over by Ra's ul-Hudood Zulqarnain Hakeemuddin Saheb (dm) who addressed the mumineen and did the Bayaan in the praise of Muqaddas Maulaa.
Rajab ul-Asab is the month of Birth of Maulaana 'Ali (as) in the Ka'batullaah. In other words it is the Birth of Imaan in the Ka'batullaah. One of the basic Aqeedah of Isma'ili Taiyebi mumineen is giving Misaaq or Oath of Allegiance to the Spiritual Leader. The Sajadah (prostration) done by the Angels of Allaah (Malaaik) to Maulaana Aadam (as) was a Misaaq of his Obedience and of his 'Ilm bestowed by Allaah. Maulaana Aadam (as) was superior to the Angels of Allaah because of his 'Ilm.
Acquiring Deeni knowledge is as important as going to school, college or university. Deeni knowledge is for the Aakherat (HereAfter) and Dunyawi knowledge is for this World - Huzoor-e-'Aali (tus) stresses over this fact in his every Bayaan. Madrasah-e-Taiyebiyah is the Deeni Institution of the 'Alavi Jamaa'at shouldering the responsibility of the Deeni Ta'leem to the children.
Umm ul-Mumineen Durrat ul-Bayzah Maa Saahebah (dm), Mukaasir ud-Da'wat al-'Alaviyah Mohammad Nooruddin Saheb (dm), Shehzaadi Mo'azzamah Shukranabu and Shehzaadi Mo'azzamah Hasanabu and few others from the Royal Family are accompanying the Mumineen. It was a long wish of Maa Saahebah to visit the Ka'batullaah and do 'Umrah Mufradah. Huzoor-e-'Aali (tus) gave Razaa Mubaarak to the Qaaflah of the Mumineen.
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.

What 'Alavi Taareekh says about Saiyedi saheb (ra)
“Udkholuha be-Salaamin Aameneen”, this is the Qur’anic verse ordering mumineen-muttaqeen to enter Jannat with Salaam where they would be secure from evilness of the Shayaateen. 41st Da’i ul-Mutlaq Saiyedna Jivabhai Fakhruddin saheb (aq) inscribed this Aayat of Surat ul-Hijr on Wood and did hadiyah to one of the khidmat-guzaar residing in Badri Mohalla in 1314 AH. This mubaarak piece of wooden plaque found its way to Da’wah Shareefah and after 129 yrs by the farmaan of Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus) it has been placed in Devdi Mubaarak.
“Daar us-Salaam” is a supreme place in Jannat where a true mumin of Ahl ul-Bayt (as) will dwell and he would be given power to choose the select mumineen and make them enter into this place of Rahmat and Ne’mat along with him.
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.
While eating grapes of the garden of Waleed bin ‘Utbah, Rasoolullaah (saws) did du’aa and that carried hikmat which resulted khidmat ud-Da’wat in the progeny of Waleed. Every grape is the khidmat of Da’i ul-Mutlaq in Yaman that started with the 5th Da’i Saiyedna ‘Ali bin Mohammad (aq) who did Da’wat from 605 AH till 612 AH. There will be ad-Du’aat ul-Mutlaqeen from the Aal of Waleed who will become the guardian of Faatemi Da’wat and will call mumineen to Imaam uz-Zamaan (as), the children of 21st Imaam Maulaana Abul Qaasim Taiyeb (as).
Unlike the period of Saiyedna Zo’aib bin Moosa (aq), it was the blessing of Allaah that during his time there was no unrest or rebellion in any place. Mumineen were in peace and harmony and followed the orders of Da’i ul-Mutlaq openly and fearlessly. He used to call his opponents and talk to them sympathetically about their differences and always tried to bring a friendly solution to the disputes. Such was your approach with the disputants that many of them accepted his word and returned to the shadow of Imaan.
During the Rasm of Dhaaru, all the family members including the Bride and Groom are called to the Da’wat-e-Haadiyah where exclusive Nasihat (friendly advice) for the Imaani Married life based on the teachings of Faatemi Du’aat (aq) is given to them. Importance of Married life is explained to them with references from the Aayah of the Qur’an and Ahadees of Rasoolullaah (saws).
Du'aa of Maulaana Jibra'eel Ameen before the intiqaal of Rasoolullaah (saws): This is the du'aa-e-khusoosi recited for the fazeelat, ta'ziyat and sabr of Ahl ul-Bayt (as) where Rasoolullaah (saws) is about to depart from this Abode of Calamities and how one should percieve the reward of his deeds, may it be blissful or sinful. Rasoolullaah (saws) says that, My mumineen are the Chosen people who will have the didaar of both me and my 'Ali at their time of death. Our Mahabbat would lead them to Najaat and Mumineen never dies spiritually as we make then eternal.
Every member of the House should give preference to Lisaan ud-Da’wat (our classical Gujarati language) over other languages. As far as possible, at least once, food must be eaten together in the Thaal, sitting on the ground. Clothes should be worn by all the members according to our Bohra culture.
Everyone should have habit of saying Salaam while entering the House. Elders must be respected by all. Youngsters should be well behaved. Women should be Honoured.
It is against the conduct of a Mu’min to call his wife by her name in the House. This equally applies to the wife not calling her husband by his name.
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).'
