'Eid ul-Fitr: 'Eid is the Culmination point of the 'Ibaadaat of Shahrullaah. The one who has offered Roza, Namaaz, Huqooq, Khairaat, Tahajjud, Nisf il Layl, Jihaad etc. could rightfully celebrate ‘Eid by reciting Takbeerah after 5 Farz Namaaz. The didaar of Da’i uz Zamaan (tus), who is the representative of Imaam uz Zamaan (as) on this land, is actually the ‘Eid for mumineen. This ‘Eid is termed as ‘Eid ush Shukr, ‘Eid un Ne’mat, ‘Eid us Sa’aadat and ‘Eid ul Bishaarat. The Waaqe’ah of the Maa’edah of ‘Isaa Roohullaah (as) and the Jannati green-red libaas of Imaam Hasan (as) and Imaam Husain (as) is vividly remembered during ‘Eid ‘Ibaadaat.
Nooraani Masjid: Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb (tus)
Zenith Hall, Mumbai: Mukaasir ud-Da'wat (dm)
Taiyebi Masjid, Vadodara: Ra's ul Hudood saheb (zi)
After a long time, Aqaa Maulaa delivered a bayaan relating to the fazeelat of 3 daska on the night of 16th Ramazaan during the Nisf il Layl Namaaz in Nooraani Masjid. Maulaa said that, "The word of "Allaah" has three letters, alif, laam and haa. Each one of it points to 3 daska of Shahrullaah. Each is of different dimension and written accordingly. The First Dasko of Rahmat is of Rasoolullaah (saws), then Maghferat is of Maulaana 'Ali (as) and the last ten days is of A’immat who is the Aal of the Wasi."
Laylat ul-Qadr: It is the heart of Shahrullaah. It falls on the night of 23rd Ramazaan, the specific signs shown to Ahl-e-Shi'a, the staunch believers of Ahl ul-Bayt (as). Surat ul-Qadr, the whole Qur’anic Chapter in its last part gives the clear picture of its Fazeelat, ‘Ibaadat, Revelation of Qur’an and Angels. It is the night of Shafaa’at and Najaat on the holy hands Maulaatona Faatemah Zahraa (as). Qadr has three letters which states that, “Qaaf” stands for Qareen ul-Qur’an, “Daal” stands for Da’wat ud-Daawar and “Raa” stands Rooh ur-Rahmaan. Qadr gifted mumineen with these three things. Aqaa Maulaa was in Nooraani Masjid, Mukaasir Maulaa was in Mumbai, Ra’s ul-Hudood was in Taiyebi Masjid during the Salaat-o-Layl il-Qadr. Razaa was granted in Ahmedabad, Surat and Nadiad for this Namaaz and mumineen did Du’aa.

Misaaq of Muminaat:
Vadodara: On 29th Ramazaan, Yaum ul-Jomo'ah, Aqaa Maulaa took Misaaq of Muminaat in Nooraani Masjid after the Namaaz. Maulaa said that, "Misaaq is the step towards Imaan and Walaayat. Except Walaayat, there are ways to adjust as per the Shari'at when anyone has some problem or acceptable excuse in following other 6 pillars of Islaam. Walaayat of Imaam uz-Zamaan (as) is necessary for all in any of the conditions and circumstances. Today you will take the new birth in respect of Imaan and Yaqeen."
Mumbai: Bay’at-e-Imaam uz-Zamaan (as) for Muminaat was held on the day of Wadaa’-e-Shahrullaah, 28th Ramazaan on Zenith Hall, Mumbai before maghrib Namaaz at 6 pm. Mukaasir Maulaa did Bayaan on the haqeeqat of ‘Aql and Misaaq and said the following points:
Before starting college education of their daughters, parents should engage them
Along with education, parents should teach their daughters day-to-day house chores, cooking and keeping healthy relations with elders and relatives
Should restrict themselves on using social media and mobile chats
Should remain regular in Namaaz and should participate in all the social gathering, majlis
When in Vadodara, should do Ziyaarat of Du’aat (aq) and do Mulaaqaat of Da’i uz Zamaan (tus)
Should respect their parents and see to it that their daily Haajaat are fulfilled
Should spent money in the name of Ahl ul Bayt (as) and also on their marhumeen
Keep themselves update of Da’wat publications and akhbaar through website, newsletter and mobile app
Saalgirah of Mukaasir Maulaa: On 28th Ramazaan Mumbai mumineen celebrated the 44th Birthday of Mukaasir Maulaa Saiyedi Mohammad Nuruddin saheb where Anjuman-e-Hizb-e-Haashemi arranged for Iftaari and Ta’aam-o-Ikraam for the entire Jamaa’at. Many mumineen offered mubaarak-baadi of Milaad to Mukaasir Maulaa with gifts. Mukaasir Maulaa said that, “We should first remember the Milaad of our Panjatan-e-Paak (as), who came in this world for our Hidaayat and Najaat. They are the only source of our being here, which is nothing but the circles of Happiness and Sorrow. Happiness teaches us how to do Shukr and Sorrow shows us the path of Sabr.”
Washshek: It is the special namaaz of Naafelat having maximum of 24 Rak'aat. It is offered during the 17th, 19th, 21st, 23rd night of Shahrullaah. The Ummahaat-mothers of al-Khamsat ul-Athaar (as) are the mamsool-saheb e waseelah of these nights. 23rd night being the night of Qadr-Laylat ul-Qadr, in the place of 24 Rak'aat, 24 Salaams having different niyyat with 20 Rak'aat is offered. Bayaan on the Fazaa'il and Shahaadat of Ameer ul-Mumineen Maulaana Ali (as) is done during the first three faazil nights. The purpose of washshek is that, Mu'min should spent the whole night in 'Ibaadat and Fi Zikrillaah, this thing is fulfilled by offering Washshek at that particular night after 'Ishaa il-Aakherat. As Allaah Ta'aala bestows sawaab of each 'amal 70 times more.
8 Doors of Jannat: With the beginning of the mubaarak month of Shahrullaah, its Noor and Rahmat is felt on the hearts and intellect of every faithful and as a result every namaazi has rescheduled his work to do ‘Ibaadaat and Du’aa in masjid. This was reflected in the Pehli Raat Bayaan of Mukaasir Maulaa and Ra’s ul Hudood in which mumineen were enlightened and enriched with the Fazeelat and merits of Shahrullaah, its munaajaat, du’aa, Namaaz, deeds, waajebaat, nawaafil, sadaqaat, nisfillayl, sawm, roza-iftaari, tahaarat etc. The month of Ramazaan is the only month which is mentioned as “Shahr-o-Ramazaan” in Qur’an and it has 8 alphabets which indicate 8 doors of Jannat.
4 Words in Aayat-e-Shahr-e-Ramazaan: In the aayat of Ramazaan in Surat ul-Baqarah, there are 4 words as Qur’an, Hudaa, Baiyenaat and Furqaan. Qur’an stands for Mohammad Rasoolullaah (saws) and Maulaana ‘Ali (as), Hudaa stands for A’immat e Taahereen (as), Baiyenaat stands for Du’aat e Kiraam (ra) and Furqaan stands for Maulaana Qaa’im ul Qeyaamah (as). The other thing which makes Ramazaan different from other months is Fasting for 30 complete days. Each and every faithful must fast every year except that he is sick or on journey. Fasting is for Allaah Ta’aala and He has assured for its reward.
Bayaan before Maghrib: 20 minutes before maghrib, Saheb e Da’wat delivers bayaan that throws light on the Arkaan of Shari’ah, its Ahkaam, Halaal-o-Haraam, Qissah, Hikmat, Mo’jezaat, Haalaat-e-Haazerah, Faraa’iz, Aa’maal of Shahrullaah etc. Mumineen attentively listens to the lecture and especially youth takes deep interest in the topics related to current affairs.
5 Letters of Ramazaan: The foundation of Ramazaan is based on the 'azmat and walaayat of Panjatan e Paak (as). 5 letters of Ramazaan is related to the 5 ashaab of Panjatan e Paak. In Ramazaan, "raa" is the Rahmat of Rasoolullaah (saws), "meem" is the Maghferat of Maulaana 'Ali (as), "zuwaad" is the Zamaanat of Jannat from Maulaatona Faatemah az-Zahraa (as), "alif" is the Imaamat of Maulaana Imaam Hasan (as) and "noon" is the Ne'mat of Maulaana Imaam Husain (as) in form of Khaak e Shifaa, Du'aa and Aal e Athar. Imaam uz Zamaan (as) is Aal e Husain and this eternal ne'mat is the reason of the Barakaat of Ramazaan.
Roza-Iftaari: Brotherhood and Compassion is the greatest treasure of Ramazaan. Roza-iftaari is the best example of it. In the Mosque mumineen come for namaaz 4 times daily and during maghrib namaaz all of them do Roza-iftaari with mohabbat and ikhlaas. Mumineen share the ne'mat of Roza-iftaari with each other. Mumineen offer the izn of Roza-iftaari to Aqaa Maulaa and take the golden opportunity for the Du'aa of Shifaa and Rizq. One who arrange Roza-iftaari gets the reward same as Rozadaar. One 'amal e khayr accounts to one faraz and its sawaab is 70 times as compared to a single sawaab in other months.
Fasting and Nisf il Layl: Shahrullaah is distinguished with two things. “Siyaam bin Nahaar”, Fasting during day and “Qiyaam bil Layl”, Offering Namaaz in Midnight. A mumin who has this characteristic along with doing Jihaad and offering Zakaat to Da’i uz Zamaan, he has attained nearness to Allaah Ta’aala. Fasting and Midnight prayer is very high level of Jihaad which everyone could not accomplish. When everyone is eating during day and sleeping during night, a true mumin kills his wishes for eating and sleeping and makes his soul pure and enduring to fight against all the evils of Shaytaan. In the presence of Saheb e Da’wat, in every masjid mumineen starts and ends their fasting and together offer the Namaaz of Nisf il Layl.
