On 22nd Safar ul-Muzaffar, Thursday, a sabaq-e-khusoosi (a special session) was held at Bustaan us-Sawaab, in the sahen-e-mubaarak of Bustaan-e-Badri after Maghrib namaaz.  It was presided by Mazoon ud-Da’wat Saiyedi Haatim Zakiyuddin saheb (dm) and was attended by Khuddaam-e-Da’wat and Razaakaar who by the amar (order) of Saheb-e-Da’wat leads the namaaz at different masaajid and recite various Du’as.  The main aim of this assembly was to establish the importance of the khidmat of Da’wat-e-Haadiyah and to recognize the big responsibility of the Razaa that the Razaakar holds when he heads the mumineen in the namaaz as a “imaam”.

It proved to be a very interesting and informative session for all the khuddaam when Mazoon ud-Da’wat explained the essence of Namaaz which is a part of Zaahiri Da’wat of Imaam uz-Zamaan (as).  Namaaz is the call of imaan that directs the faithful towards the walaayat of the Da’i of Allaah who in turn makes him identify the haqeeqi ma’refat of Allaah.  Mazoon ud-Da’wat quoted from the book “Aqeedat ul-Mowahhedeen” by 8th Yamani Da’i-e-Mutlaq Saiyedna Husain bin Saiyedna Ali (aq) that, the Itaa’at (obedience) begins with the last hadd (darajah) in the hierarchy of Da’wat and by holding the itaa’at of the last hadd you could reach to the top-most hadd who is the “nabi”.  If you have in between you the hadd of Mukaasir then you could reach to the hadd of Mazoon, with him you could reach the hadd of Da’i ul-Mutlaq, with him you could reach the hadd of the Hujjat of Imaam uz-Zamaan (as) so on and so forth.  All these darajaat are “hablullaahil mateen”, Allaah strong cord of itaa’at which is again consolidated with the walaayat Ahlul Bayt (as) and Qur’an.  It is the warmth of this itaa’at that keeps the heart of a mumin throbbing with the taqwaa of Allaah.

All of the Razaakaar were overwhelmed when Mazoon ud-Da’wat stood in front of them and guided each one while explaining them the arkaan of namaaz and the significance of the tilaawat of Qur’an which should be recited with tarteel and ilhaan.  He followed a comprehensive discussion of different aspects of Imaamat from the book Da’aaim ul-Islaam.  Mazoon ud-Da’wat said that, “This sabaq was first of its kind and insha-allaah the round of such asbaaq will continue and will prove fruitful for the khuddaam and mumineen.”
