The Official Website of the 45th ad-Da'i al-Mutlaq al-Haqq Haatim ul-Khayraat, Rabee' ul-Barakaat Saiyedna Abu Sa'eed il-Khayr Haatim Zakiyuddin saheb (tus)
 


This mubaarak writing is of 37th Da'i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Shaikhali Shamsuddin saheb AQ presenting the couplet of Qaseedah of Saiyedna Ali saheb AQ composed by 31st Da'i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Hasan Badruddin saheb AQ in 1075 AH in Ahmedabad.  It means, “O Lord! Protect Da’wat e Alaviyah and its ashaab-people wherever they are in different cities-towns, with the waseelah of Rasoolullaah SAWS, his progeny and his loyal associates who are his most chosen and blessed.”
 
Rajab ul Murajjab 1444

Rajab ul Murajjab is the seventh month of our Hijri Year coining the Merits of Ameer ul Mumineen Maulaana Ali AS.  Ka'batullaah il Haraam is the witness of our Maulaa's gracious birth in it.  This distinction of the Barakaat of the House of Allaah named as the brilliant Tents of Light, will never be achieved by anyone till Yaum e Qeyaamat except our Maulaa.  Those who haven't accepted our Maulaa, as their Maulaa, then the Reward of this month will not reach them.  We are ascended and elevated in every aspect as we are Alavi.  Alavi-the most celebrated, in the sense that we have understood the grit to face this torturous world and pave the way for beautiful Aakherat. 

"Rajab", has three letters: "Raa", "Jeem" and "Baa".  Raa stands for "Rabee' ul Barakaat" means, the Spring of Graciousness, Jeem stands for "Jaame' ul 'Ibaadaat" means, the Compendium of Prayers and Baa stands for "Baab ul Hasanaat" means, the Door of Good deeds.  All these articles of faith sums up to the 30 meritorious days of Rajab.

Saiyedna Ali Shaheed e 'Aazam AQ, the 29th Da'i e Mutlaq, on the death of his grandfather, 28th Da'i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Shaikh Aadam Safiyuddin saheb AQ, became the Da'i of Imaam Taiyeb AS in Ahmedabad, 7th Rajab 1030 AH.  Remembering both Ali who became martyrs-Shaheed for the cause of the Deen of Yaa 'Ali (Allaah Ta'aala), this Qaumi Taraana-Community Song is composed and published on the 1st day of Rajab 1444 AH,

Parcham Hamaara Aa'laa, Saara Jahaan Hamaara, 
Har Simt dikh raha hai, Alavi Nishaan Hamaara. 

Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb TUS wishes that this beautiful composition should become the Taraana of each Alavi homes.  It should be recited in Madrasah, Social gatherings and Religious assemblies.

Aqaa Maulaa TUS meets as-Saiyed Mehdi Mehdavipur saheb
22 Jumaadi ul Ukhraa 1444/14 Jan 2023

He is completely aware of the fact that Aqaa Maulaa holds the distinction of the Final Authority in the literary world of Shi'i-Isma'ili-Taiyebi studies.  His aim of having one-to-one meeting with Aqaa Maulaa is to take concrete steps in strengthening the bilateral literary relations between the Iranian scholars and the works of our Du'aat e Kiraam AQ.  Aqaa Maulaa requested him to focus on the unique works of Saiyedna Qaazi No'maan saheb (355 AH/966 AD) of Egypt and Saiyedna Haatim Mohiyuddin saheb (570 AH/1175 AD) of Yemen.  Both Da'is did great efforts in subduing anti-Shi'i propaganda and in establishing firmly the harmonious atmosphere of the Shi'i-Isma'ili principles for Tawheed and Imaamat.

A Neo-Fatimid Treasury of Books
Arabic MSS among the Alavi Bohras of South-Asia
by

Olly Akkerman

This book tells the story of a manuscript repository found all over the pre-modern Muslim world: the Khizaanat ul-Kutub, or treasury of books. The focus is on the undisclosed Arabic manuscript culture of a small but vibrant South Asian Shi’i Muslim community, the Alavi Bohras of Taiyebi branch of Isma'ilis having Yemen as the work-force and energy-house for literary activities. It looks at how books that were once part of one of the biggest imperial book repositories of the medieval Muslim world, the Khizaanah of the Fatimids of North Africa and Egypt (909CE-1171CE) ended up having a rich social life among the Bohras across the Western Indian Ocean, starting in Yemen and ending in Gujarat.

As it is perceived for other Bohra sects that their Khizaanah has remained unread or untouched for years together, it's not the case with Alavi Bohras.  Reading, Copying, Transmitting and Assimilating of manuscripts is a common tradition of a Da'i.  As per the mental capabilities of his believers-mumineen, Da'i always try to make them understand the intricacies and depth of Shari'ah espoused by the holy texts of these unique manuscripts.

Alavi Senior Citizen
Organized by: Baroda Cyclopedians Ladies' Wing - 20/11/2022

When Seniors are considered really Seniors then things get better, hopes get organized and justice becomes desirable.  Elders hold the key of our traditional values and rightful actions governed by mature thoughts.  They become bridge between the past and present generation.  Forbearance, experience, patience, forgiveness and etiquettes has now the become the norm of their lives.  They have accepted that these are the last years of their lives and they want their loved ones to be near them and get benefitted.  They want to get audience from their family members, so that their words could be reiterated to their younger ones.

Laabh Paancham - The Perspective of "5"
Our Du'aat e Kiraam RA said, "Respect and love the people of the land where Allaah Ta'aala has bestowed upon you His rizq and sustenance."  In India we live in between non-Muslims.  And hence its our social liability to stay together and willfully share our feelings and greetings in their festivities.  A peaceful nation could only stand firm against every odds through pluralistic approach and prismic vision. Festival of Deepawali and it's celebration continues for several days and every single day has it's own significance. There are characteristic names of days observed for auspiciousness before and after Diwali. A day after night of Diwali is a new year day followed by bhaidooj, third, fourth and the fifth day of Laabh Paancham -the fifth day of Goodness and Benefits.

Unveiling of distorted and unauthentic accounts of Isma’ili-‘Alavi history in Gujarat

Maulaana Aadam SA was born on the island of present day Sri Lanka – better known as Sarandeep in the ancient times. He spent his early life on this auspicious land. He continued to receive spiritual blessings of the Deen of Allaah and His Oneness-Tawheed. The birthplace of Maulaana Aadam SA – Hindustaan was attributed to the name of Hunayd AS, who appointed Maulaana Aadam SA to the rank of Nabi by the Spiritual Decree of Allaah. The birthplace of Maulaana Aadam SA was a vast land divided into three main parts at that time – large mainland as Hunaydistaan (Hind), then two small parts namely Sindh and Yaman – which were interconnected divinely, commercially, culturally, geographically and politically, linguistically in the respective times.

We say something special for our National Flag, Tiranga.  Orange colour on the top is Fire (anger, enmity).  The White colour in the middle is Air and Water (peace, love).  The Green at the bottom is Earth- land (livelihood).  The Ashoka Chakra in the middle of the Flag is the intermingling of air and water in proper proportion to balance the effect of fire on the land.  This is when the land turns green and liveable.  All four elements of life could be seen in our Flag.

Introduction
Alavi Bohra Women - Towards Liberty and Progress

Each woman has to play several roles during her lifetime. It includes the role of a daughter, sister, wife, mother, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law and so on. Allaah Ta'aala has blessed every woman with innate strengths such as patience, compassion, multitasking, humility, creativity, optimism etc.  Family is protected by the outwardly intellectual strength of business and livelihood of Father and by the inwardly emotional strength of relations and home-making of Mother.  Imbalance in this creates discord and disturbances in a family.

In one of his bayaan, Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb TUS said that, “Till now we were following a tradition and has become a social norm that in order to get engaged a proposal is sent from a boy (dikro) side to a prospective girl (dikri)."

Despite heavy rainfall, there was a noticeable increase in the number of Mumineen-Muminaat than expected.  Attending the majlis of Da'i-e-Husain is the answer to the Da'wat of Aqaa Husain AS for reward and salvation.

History: 4th Da'i ul Mutlaq
Saiyedna 'Ali bin Saiyedna Haatim al-Haamedi (QR)
25 Zul Qa’adah 605 AH (Sana'a) – 30/5/1209 AD

Most distinguished work during the period of his Da’wat was to resolve the internal conflicts among the different groups and tribes of mumineen. He urged them to forget their generational pride and arrogance and lead life in the Khidmat of Da’wat and conform to the path of Allaah. Elevating the mumineen from the worldly matter and guiding them towards their destiny was an unparalleled task which Saiyedna ‘Ali (aq) successfully executed though he faced many challenges and difficulties.

In the last days of his life Saiyedna ‘Ali (aq) called his Hudood and companions in the Fort of Zamarmar and did Nass-e-Jali and appointed Saiyedna ‘Ali bin Mohammad al-Waleed (aq) as the 5th Da’i ul-Mutlaq after him. After his death, his body was brought to Sana’a city in a palanquin (palkhee). There is also an account stating that Saiyedna ‘Ali (aq) was martyred by poisoning him.


Kitaab ul Wasaaya  

Da'wat-e-Haadiyah Publication
Kitaab ul Wasaaya: The Book of Moral Teachings
Number of Shi’as does not matter but their qualities do

The Shi'a of Ja'far are only those who have learned to restrain their tongues, who act in the way of their Creator, who hope good from their leader and fear Allaah until they become like the arc of bow from the frequency of Namaaz they offer; like a trembling and weak from the fear, like a blind man from the degree of submissiveness; like a man emaciated by excessive fasting and like a dumb man from lasting silence.

The Imaam describes the physical attributes of the Shi'as vividly with respect to their appearance, code of conduct, devotion in worship and maintaining relationships with their fellow people. Lastly, the Imaam gives a very important instruction that if anyone from the hypocrites approach you with repentance and pure heart accepting his mistakes, then forgive him and take him in our fold.

Our Population
Our Jamaa'at Population - What was, What is and What should be? The Onus lies in our Hands

We faithfully recollect our Muqaddas Maulaa’s wise words pertaining to this worrying trend, “Previously houses were smaller in size but members were large in number,  still there was support, love and Barakat in the house. But in the present situation, houses are large in size with too many rooms but members are few to occupy it. Too many walls in the house acts like barriers in the hearts of the family members. Only namesake love prevails and there is no trace of Mahabbat-o-Barakat in the house. This is a reality of revolution with decaying family values.”

If Allaah Ta'aala were to afflict you, there is no one who could stop the affliction but He, and if He were to bestow upon you some favour, He has power to do all that He wills.  We have revealed through the Qur’an for the believers what is the best for them as far as Wellness and Mercy is concerned.  There is no being but has a guardian over it.  We have adorned the lowest heaven with the beauty of the stars and have guarded it against all rebellious demons.  If the disbelievers turn away and don't heed to the advice then tell them, Sufficient for me is Allaah Ta'aala.  There is no God but He.  In Him do I put my Trust.  He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.

Life Inside Out - A Spiritual Overview
College going Saalehaat - Daar us Salaam 25-10-2019

After Maghrib Namaaz and Misaaq, Aqaa Maulaa addressed the gathering collectively that, “This is the ‘azeem karam of Allaah Ta’aala that mumineen are spending wholeheartedly in the noble cause for the Didaar and Arkaan of these Maqaamaat e Muqaddasaat.  Otherwise, people lavishly spend lots of money for outings and exploring new tourist destinations only for worldly pleasure and to get some break from their routine work.  But before getting indulged in such a huge expenditure, mumineen should first think of something that gives them spiritual boost by undertaking blissful and soulful journey.  This is called wise spending.   Spiritual gain is far more long-lasting than physical comfort as it has a direct relation with the life hereafter.”

The Window to Wisdom

Shari’at, the divine canonical law that powers a Believer to attain ascension in all fields of life, is the path of Purity and Mercy to be treaded only at the hands of Divinely endorsed Authority.  It is this authority that sets the perfect match between knowledge and actions.  Between these two things there comes the intension of a Believer based on the strong faith on Divine Authority appointed by the Holy Progeny of the Divine Prophet.  The Prophet gives full command and rule to his appointed authority-missionary over the entire life of a Believer.  This authoritative person trains and teaches his followers in acquiring the rightful knowledge and the righteous actions based on it.  If this happens then, it is said that, For a Believer his Master has opened a Window of Wisdom.

Inauguration of Saiyedi Musanji Masjid
23 Sha'baan 1440/28-4-2019

“Since the time immemorial, the mumineen of Jamaa’at ul Haqq are associated with the masjid, where “Haqq na Saheb” offered namaaz along with mumineen and this remained in the centre-stage for building Imaani environment and social progress.  This masjid stands witness to the challenging time of our community when 32nd Da'i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb (aq) left Ahmedabad and settled in the outskirts of this Vadodara city named “Miya Mehmood Wadi”.  At the entrance of Badri Mohalla, Maulaa built Ziyaai Masjid whose Mehraab and Qiblah were on the same pattern as that of Musanji Masjid.  Before 50 years during the Da’wat of 43rd Da'i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Y Nuruddin saheb (aq), that Ziyaai Masjid got replaced with the newly built Nooraani Masjid.  But, for this Masjid, each and every thing has been retained and restored while beautifying it with Sang-e-Marmar.”

Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed saheb (ra) - 20-21/7/1440

Aqaa Maulaa said that, “You all are my family, my ruhaani farzando.  I am your Waalid and I treat you equally and affectionately so I too expect from you that you all work together for the holy cause of Da’wat and the deeni progress of mumineen.  Unity, understanding and selflessness is the stepping stone to defeat the evil forces and plans.  Truth is with us, with the followers of Ahl ul Bayt (as), their Imaams and Da’is, but the need of time is that we should reveal our truthfulness at right place and time.  A simple way of precise dialogue is enough to uproot and shatter the baseless arguments of bid’ati people.

Lisaan ud Da'wat group went for outing with Mukaasir Maulaa - 6-8-1439

Lisaan ud Da'wat - The Language of the Alavi Spiritual Mission and the most versatile dialect of Alavi Bohras has its interesting history and long journey of expression and development dates back since the Imaamat and Caliphate of Faatemi Imaams in Cairo i.e. 1100 years.  It originated from its mother language Arabic with the help of its supportive languages Urdu and Persian.  Its structural and grammatical formation largely depends on Gujarati language.


  Glossary
Reasoning and Religiosity of Esotericism
Tanzeel-تنزیل or Tafsir-تفسیر (outer meaning or commentary on the Qur’an) is completely based of Ta’weel-تأویل (inner meaning) without which Tanzeel becomes void and meaningless.  The everlasting beautiful outward appearance is from inside and that which could not be seen and could not be understood by everyone.   The belief that each and every Qur’anic verse has both outer and inner meaning as the same is the case with the sayings of Prophet Mohammad which are applicable and acceptable in all times till the last Day of Doom.

In the Past : Wallaaho bekulle shayin Aleem
 

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).'
