“Our daily Namaaz is the best example of exercise, concentration and balance. It’s the straight way to get connected with the world above you and this Spiritual power has a overwhelming effect both mentally and physically. You should do Shukr that you are healthy today, because sickness is bound to come. You should do Shukr that you are alive today, because death is always advancing towards you. This health and life is the best ne’mat of Khudaa Ta’aala.”

Mukaasir ud-Da’wat (dm) said in his speech that, “Today I feel that I am in UK as all of you speak English so nicely and confidently. I must say that the effort started by at-Taiyebaat today should continue and like this batch many of you should encourage others to take part in this type of educational activities and help in building positivity in our community. English is an International Language and everywhere you will have to face it. Make it the part of your routine as it has become the basic tool of communication. When I was in school studying in 6th Class Marhoom Mukaasir ud-Da’wat Saiyedi Dr. Husain Mo’eenuddin saheb (ra) inculcated in me the habit of reading Times of India newspaper and this has helped me immensely in making the base of English Language strong.

Bayaan of Rasoolullaah (saws) in which he describes the naseehat of Farishtah who is in the Khidmat of ‘Arsh, to the people aged between 20 to 100 years. For everyone the Farishtah brings forth the Haqeeqat of this World, Death, Hereafter and Actions. People are very much engrossed in their families, business and social affairs. Very few of them keep in mind the ever advancing Death which will become the first step of the result of their deeds. A pious young man, a noble aged man and a caring mother is always Qareeb to the Rahmat of Allaah Ta’aala.

Maulaa said that, “A Mumin who do ziyaarat of these Du’aat are in the nooraani company of Malaa’ikat-Angels and and he himself becomes an angle gaining the shafaa’at of our Du’aat. The Door of this Rawzah is “Baab-e-Hittah”, meaning the door to Najaat because mumin completely safeguards his walaayat and ‘aqeedat towards his lifetime. The Rawzah of our Du’aat is the centre for Haajat-rawaai for all those who take Maulaa’s Waseelah.”
Shahzaada Bhaisaheb Sa’eed ul-Khayr joined them from Qumm and he is now leading the group. Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) did Khusoosi Du’aa for the Kaamyaabi of the Safar and peaceful return to India with sehhat and ‘Aafeyat.

Huzoor-e-‘Aali al-Maulaa al-Muqaddas wished that, “At Daar us-Salaam, Madrasah and Namaaz-e-Imaamat should begin at the earliest and Mumineen should take Manfe’at-e-‘Ilmiyah and ‘Amaliyah (benefit by knowledge and deed) through this initiative.” Saiyedna saheb (tus) personally took interest and motivated Mumineen residing near Daar us-Salaam for Madrasah and Namaaz. On 13 Rabi’ ul-Aakhar 1437, Friday, Saiyedna saheb (tus) did Imaamat of Salaat ul-Fajr and did farmaan to all the namaazi present at Daar us-Salaam to be regular and they should bring along with them their family members too. After the namaaz, Saiyedna saheb (tus) said that, “O Mumineen! Our Shari’at is based on ‘Aamaal and Arkaan based on the Aayaat of Qur’an-e-Hakeem and Ahaadees of Rasoolullaah (saws). Each and every deed that we do in our daily life is truly connected and inspired by either Aayaat or Ahaadees or may be both.”
“Islaam is like a body and Misaaq is like a Soul-Rooh. The presence and action of Soul is felt in each and every atom of the body and without it not a single part of body could remain alive or could be called its part. The same is the haqeeqat of Misaaq which takes in its fold the entire Shari’at. The last recourse of those who follow Shari’at with all its Hadd and Haqq of Shafaa’at. Rasoolullaah (saws) says that, “There is no Shafaa’at without ‘Ahed-Misaaq”.
“This is not only my milaad but today is the milaad of my every mumin-muminah. Allaah Ta’alaa has blessed me with the barakaat of this month in which our last Nabi Rasoolullaah (saws) was born in Makkah. Today there is no limit of my khushi that I see you all here in this majlis along with your children and you have come by keeping aside all your works only to participate in the taqreebaat of my milaad and eat the ne’mat on the maa’edah with shukr-o-ihsaan. I want nothing from you but du’aa for the sehhat and tandurasti of your Da’i and that I fulfill my responsibility of imparting the ilm of Aal-e-Mohammad (as) and hidaayat till the last breath of my life.”
The Supremacy of the people of the family of Da’i is not based on its relationship with Da’i but on ikhlaas, khidmat, ‘ilm and taqwaa. The 6 sons of Saiyedna Fakhruddin saheb (aq) were all learned with the ‘Uloom of Da’wat-e-Shareefah like the sons of Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb (aq). They were Saiyedna Badruddin saheb, Bhaisaheb Ibraahim, Bhaisaheb Hameeduddin, Bhaisaheb Najmuddin, Bhaisaheb Abd ul-Husain and Bhaisaheb Husaamuddin.
Saiyedi saheb added that, “Rasoolullaah (saws) did naseehat to ahl-e-Islaam that Allaah Ta’aala has not decided the reward of these three things meaning it bears huge reward when done keeping in mind the importance of the service to Makhlooq-mankind. 1) Planting Trees for better environment, 2) Constructing Roads for better commuting and 3) Digging Wells for better household. If people follow this with sincerity and cooperation then there will remain no doubt that it will help in creating strong base for social and environmental benefit. Surely “PLANTS” stands for “Please Let A Nature To Survive” and “TREE” stands for “Treasure and Resource for Environmental Enrichment”.
INTIQAAL ILAA DAAR IS-SALAAM Spiritual Journey of Maulaa al-Muqaddas to the Ever-lasting Abode
44th Da'i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Abu Haatim Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb (aq)
Allaah Ta’aala says in the Qur’an-e-Kareem, “Every Soul will get the Taste of Death…” and “When Death arrives it neither delays nor comes early for a moment…”. Indeed, Death of a Learned is the Death of Universe. Saiyedna wa Maulaana Abu Haatim Taiyeb Ziyauddin Saheb (aq) – the 44th Da’i ul Mutlaq and Siraaj um-Muneer of Alavi Bohra Jamaa’at commenced his Spiritual and Eternal Journey on 5th Sha’baan ul Kareem 1436 AH/ 23rd May 2015, Saturday from Daar-e-Fanaa to Daar-e-Baqaa. Wave of Huzn and Bukaa spread throughout the Jamaa’at. Mumineen started gathering at Devdi Mubaarak Taiyebi Mahall from the morning itself to give the payghaam of Ta’ziyat to Ahl ul-Da’wat.
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).'
