  Alaviyat Zindabaad

Living in adverse conditions and challenging times for 60 years is a great heroic task and huge responsibility to protect community from the menacing attacks and evil eyes of the enemies.  This holy personality and noble figure is no other than our 31st Da'i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Hasan Badruddin bin Saiyedi Wali bin Ajab bin Saiyedna Jalaal saheb AQ (d. 1090 AH/1679 AD).  He spent his life in Ahmedabad and faced extreme persecution by the same people who were once with him before the Da'wat of 29th Da'i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Ali Shamsuddin saheb AQ (d. 1046 AH/1637 AD).  This victimization was coupled by the harassment of the adherents of Sulaiman bin Hasan who got on their own way and parted from our mainstream Bohra community in 997 AH/1589 AD after the intiqaal of 26th Da'i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Dawoodji Burhaanuddin bin Saiyedi Ajabshah saheb AQ.  They were then came to be known as Sulaimanis.  Apart from this, the main concern at that time was the glaring enmity by the administrators and governors of Mughal Sultanate towards Shi'i communities and their business establishments.  This was so deeply rooted at every level of governance that at times our Du'aat had to stay hiding at different places in Saraspur or in underground chambers called “Tanku”.

On the memorable occasion of 353rd Urs Mubaarak of Saiyedna Hasan Badruddin saheb AQ at Ahmedabad, 18-19 Rabi' ul Aakhar 1443 AH/23-24 Nov 2021 AD, Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna Haatim Zakiyuddin saheb TUS said in his pur-hikmat insightful public deliverance that, “O Mumineen! Our Muqaddas Maulaa stayed hiding himself underground and changed his location now and then which most trusted accomplices knew and they played key role for the holy cause of Da'wat e Haadiyah in safeguarding Maulaa and the lives of mumineen.  In this fearful environment Maulaa spent more than 17 years writing and conveying the ugliness of oppression inflicted upon our community to Mughal officers.  He expressed his truthfulness through his poetic compositions and thereby took revenge of the death-martyrdom of Saiyedna Ali Shaheed e Aazam AQ.  O Mumineen! By the karam of Allaah Ta'aala and precious efforts of our Du'aat e Kiraam in conservation and preservation of age-old hand-written books (manuscripts),  these compositions are today preserved in Da'wat's khazinah (library) as “Diwaan e Hasan".  It has been typed and edited by Yemeni scholars.”

“Remember the Shohadaa (martyrs) of Karbalaa e Mo'allaa, how many Husaini Jannati were there and how many Yazidi Jahannami?  Who was in minority and who was in majority?  With whom was the Truth and who was with falsehood?  Who demanded Bay'at and who was Saheb e Bay'at?  Ponder upon it.  The world is like the plains of Karbalaa.  In this battle of truth, Muqaddas Maulaa holds Liwaa e Husaini-Flag of Imaam Husain AS and the rest are always restless and vehemently try to deface and disrespect our Flag.  False Majority is in a false thought that they can/will easily dislodge a True Minority.  But as per the Divine Law, this is never going to happen.  Da'wat e Haadiyah is always governed by a small number of true believers.”

“O Mumineen! You all are too fortunate that you are sitting in front of your Da'i e Haqq and you are the most chosen ones by Muqaddas Maulaa to do his Ziyaarat.  You all are very few in numbers but the quality of your faith on Muqaddas Maulaa is like limitless ocean.  You all are from the zarraat-khamirah aaliyah (spiritual capacity) of Ashaab e Maulaana Ali Ameer ul Mumineen AS.  They were also very makhsoos-few in numbers after the demise of Khatm ul Mursaleen Mohammad Rasoolullaah SAWS but were true believers of Maulaa Ali AS.  You are the same and will be the same for many number of times sitting in front of Da'i uz Zamaan.  Your number will also remain the same i.e. very very few chosen ones.”

Allaah Ta'aala says in Qur'an e Haqq about this fact that, “They believe very little", “They remember Allaah very little", “Little do they mind the Shari'at", “Little do they offer thanks to Allaah", “With very little price they have purchased this worldly comforts against the permanent graceful life of Aakherat", “Very little have the knowledge of Soul", “Very few will understand the bounties of Allaah Ta'aala”, “Small group of people vanquish the group of many and this will be only by their strong faith in their Lord".  The quantum of believers is the same right from the first day when Maulaana Aadam AS conveyed the message of the Tawheed of Allaah Ta'aala.  Those who had accepted this Aadami Call of Truth without any question or doubt became the forerunners of Faith.  You all are from those Aadami Believers, very limited.

Maulaa said, “The aim of Da'wat is only fulfilled when majority have betrayed Da'i e Haqq, the representative-naa'ib of Aal e Mohammad SAWS, Imaam uz Zamaan AS.  Not the way that people are forced to follow due to social ostracism, fear or humiliation.  Through guidance and patience Da'i e Haqq constantly tries to show the right path to disloyal and mischievous people.  Take an example of the Da'wat of Muqaddas Maulaa, only handful of devoted supporters adhered to the true cause of Da'wat.  Huge number of Bohras left the graceful support of Saiyedna Ali saheb AQ and Muqaddas Maulaa due to the fearful atmosphere created by Qaasimji.  This was the same dreadful person who once was the pupil of Saiyedna Ali saheb AQ and then stood witness against his Nass and this betrayal resulted in an attack with sword on him.  On every passing day, the number of believers will decrease and then it will become gravely impossible to trace and find a true Mumin.  O Mumineen! You believe that, This will be the very time of the Zuhoor of Imaam uz Zamaan AS by whom the manifestation of the Aayaat of Qeyaamat will begin.”  Rasoolullaah SAWS said, “A time-zamaan will come when Islaam will be left only for name-sake and the traditions will be followed only for show-off.”

With the 'Urs Mubaarak of 31st Da'i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Hasan Badruddin bin Saiyedi Wali saheb (qr), his wasiyat to migrate Vadodara from Ahmedabad comes afresh in the minds of Mumineen.  This was his 350th 'Urs Mubaarak and his Rawzah Mubaarakah was newly painted and everything thing was perfectly organized so that mumineen could easily do ziyaarat of Muqaddas Maulaa.  Aqaa Maulaa offered Maghrib-'Ishaa namaaz in Masjid e Haatemi and then directed mumineen to sit outside Rawzah for Behram majlis.  During his bayaan Aqaa Maulaa said that, "We should always remember our A'immat e Taahereen when after the death of our 5th Imaam Maulaana Ja'far us Saadiq (as), several of our Imaams remained in Satr-Hiding for 150 years because of the constant threat and harassment from the enemies.  Our Imaams went to Tashkent, Farghana, Sijilmassa and Salamiya until 11th Imaam Maulaana 'Abdullaah al-Mahdi emerged victorious and revealed himself in Tunisia and built a city called al-Mahdiyah."

"In Ahmedabad, after the Shahaadat of Saiyedna Ali saheb (qr), the same thing happened with Muqaddas Maulaa.  He remained in Satr for 17 long years hiding in underground chambers.  After taking Qisaas of Saiyedna Ali saheb (qr), he ordered his Mazoon o Mansoos Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb to leave Ahmedabad along with mumineen and migrate to Vadodara after his death.  The migration took place as per the wasiyat in 1110 AH and till now Vadodara has remained the centre of Ruhaani activities of Da'wat e Shareefah."

On 19th Rabi' ul Aakhar, the day of Muqaddas Maulaa's 'Urs Mubaarak, Aqaa Maulaa went to Nadiad in the evening.  Maulaa offered Maghrib-'Ishaa namaaz in Masjid e Faatemi and then after mumineen-muminaat offered Bay'at e Imaam uz Zamaan (as) to Aqaa Maulaa.  Maulaa addressed the gathering with Naseehat and said that, "Zulfiqaar is the Ejaaz of Maulaa Ali (as) and it acts like Misaaq.  Those who will follow it will be spared by Zulfiqaar and who will go against it will have to face its fierce attack.  Getting Jannat or Jahannum is based on how one follows the Misaaq of his Maulaa.  Ali's sword and Musaa's stick is sufficient to decide who is Mumin and who is Kaafir.  Rasoolullaah (saws) has opened the gates of Paradise on 18th Zul Hijjah, 10 AH, at the place of Ghadeer Khumm by appointing Maulaa Ali (as) as his successor, but very few of them realised this and the majority laughed out and rejected this opportunity and due to their hypocrisy became the dwellers of hell."

  18-19 Rabi' ul Aakhar 1439/5-6 January 2018, Aqaa Maulaa visited Ahmedabad and Nadiad during the 'Urs Mubaarak of Muqaddas Maulaa. Maulaa offered Namaaz-e-Imaamat in Masjid e Haatemi and Masjid e Faatemi. Maulaa delivered memorable bayaan at three places in Ahmedabad. Near the Rawzah Mubaarak of 3 Alavi Du'aat, Saiyedna Jalaal Fakhruddin saheb, Saiyedna 'Ali Shamsuddin saheb and Saiyedna Hasan Badruddin saheb. In Nadiad, Maulaa did necessary nasihat to Jamaa'at mumineen-muminaat and said that, "Safeguard your children and keep an eye on them and guide them at every possible misleading point. Being parents your responsibility is bigger then the dreams and career of your children."

The 348th ‘Urs Mubaaraak of 31st Da’i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Hasan Badruddin bin Saiyedi Wali (aq) in Ahmedabad on 18-19 Rabi ul-Aakhar 1438 AH, Mon-Tuesday saw an unprecedented presence of Mumineen.  This was because Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna Haatim Zakiyuddin saheb (tus) did Iftitaah-e-Sa’eed (inauguration) of Haatemi Masjid located behind the Musaafir-khaana.  During the majlis of Takht-Nasheeni of Aqaa Maulaa on 20th Sha’baan 1436 AH in Nooraani Masjid, Muqarrib ud-Da’wat il-‘Alaviyah Ghulaam Husainbhai Alibhai Contractor took Razaa to construct a Masjid for the Isaal-e-Sawaab of his parents.  By the Du’aa of Aqaa Maulaa and constant efforts of Ghulaam Husainbhai, after the necessary permissions from Administration, Aqaa Maulaa performed the Rasm-e-Ta’sees (laying of foundation stone) on 9th Sha’baan 1437.

In the short period of 8 months, the building which houses a Masjid and a Hall got completed and Aqaa Maulaa granted Razaa for its Iftitaah on the Miqaat of ‘Urs.   Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) along with Hudood became mehmaan-e-khusoosi of Ghulaam Husainbhai where Maulaa gave very important Hidaayat to his family members which they all should take care of collectively after the Iftitaah.  On this day of Shab-e-‘Urs of Muqaddas Maulaa Saiyedna Badruddin saheb (aq), 18th Rabi’ ul-Aakhar, Monday, Aqaa Maulaa did Rasm-e-Iftitaah-e-Sa’eed of Haatemi Masjid where large number of mumineen did ‘Ayni Mushaahedah.  Hudood recited Aayat Kursi and at the door of Masjid Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) recited Surat ul-Fath.

Everyone present uttered ‘Subhaanallaah’ which echoed the entire masjid when Aqaa Maulaa proceeded towards the Qiblah.  Qiblat ul-Mumineen went to make the meaning of Qiblah evident.  In the beginning of the majlis, Ra’s ul Hudood (zi) recited the Bayt “Lahu Da’wat ul-Haqq” composed by Mukaasir ud Da’wat (dm) in the Shaan and Fazeelat of Da’i uz Zamaan (tus).  Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) did Imaamat of Maghrib and ‘Ishaa il Aakherat namaaz and in between it, namaaz of Tahiyat ul Masjid was offered.  Zaakereen-e-Da’wat Hadd saheb Qambarali bhai and Mulla Husainali bhai presented their Khusoosi Kalaam in which the Bayt, “Che Aaje Iftitaah Allaah na Ghar nu, Aa Ghar che Khaaliq-e-Jinno Bashar nu,” composed by Mukaasir ud Da’wat (dm) too was recited.

Mukaasir ud Da’wat (dm) presented the Waqf-naamah in the Majlis which contained the details of the maintenance and management of Haatemi Manzil.  Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) did nazr-e-karam on Ghulaam Husainbhai by granting his Razaa for wearing ‘Imaamah (paaghdi).  Aqaa Maulaa in his straight-worded bayaan said that,

“Every Nabi, Wasi and Imaam is in the Maqaam of Masjid of his time.  The first and foremost thing which Angels did is to do Sajadah in front of Maulaana Aadam (as) as per the Ilaahi Farmaan.  This Sajadah is Mahabbat of Imaam uz Zamaan (as).  The place where the mumineen are buried in one Daur becomes the place of Masjid in some another Daur and this happens vise versa.  The same is the case with Ka’batullaah where numerous Ambiyaa are buried.”

“O Mumineen! When you tend to come to Ahmedabad which is Nani Karbalaa for all of us, apart from doing Ziyaarat of all the Shohadaa, make an habit to offer Faraz namaaz in this Masjid.  The khidmat of the Masjid will bestow you with the greatest reward of Jannati Makaanaat.  You all should maintain cleanliness and beauty of the Masjid as you minutely observe certain dos and don’ts of your own homes.  The holiest place for you is the Masjid.”

After the majlis Aqaa Maulaa went to the Rawzah Mubaarak of Muqaddas Maulaa where near the Qabr e Anwar, Maulaa explained to mumineen the historical background of the Shahaadat of Saiyedna 'Ali saheb (aq).  The role of Muqaddas Maulaa during the 16 years Da’wat of Saiyedna ‘Ali saheb.  Why Muqaddas Maulaa was buried in this place and how there were numerous Quboor around the Rawzah which belonged to the Hudood and family members of Muqaddas Maulaa.  For years together we were the custodians and Maalik of this Qabarastaan and by the passing time and migration of mumineen to Vadodara, other people unlawfully usurped the place and registered it in their own name.  Then in the Rawzah Hudood recited the Bayt, “Yaa Saiyedna Hasan Mo’een Ameen.”

On the day of ‘Urs, 19th Rabi’ ul-Aakhar, 17-1-2017, Tuesday, Muqarrib ud-Da’wat il-‘Alaviyah Mazharali Badruddin Contractor invited Aqaa Maulaa and did Qadam-bosi in his newly built factory.  A majlis was held there and Aqaa Maulaa did Du’aa for Barakat and Taraqqi in business with Rizq-e-Halaal.  In the same Estate Nanabhai and Ghulaam Husainbhai also took this Golden opportunity and took Qadam Mubaarak of Aqaa Maulaa in their factories.  In the big gathering of the workers Aqaa Maulaa and naseehat and Du’aa for Imaan-daari and Wafaa-daari.


On the ‘Urs Mubaarak of 31st Da’i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Badruddin Hasan bin Saiyedi Wali saheb (aq) in Ahmedabad on 19 Rabi’ ul-Aakhar 1437, 28-1-2016, Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) sitting in the Rawzah Mubaarakah of 28th Da’i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Shaikh Aadam Safiyuddin saheb (aq) near the Qabr-e-Anwar of 29th Da’i ul Mutlaq Shaheed-e-‘Aazam Saiyedna ‘Ali Shamsuddin saheb (aq) along with Hudood and Mumineen did Bayaan-e-khaass and Du’aa. 

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.”  Maulaa quoted the description of a Khwaab in which a mumin saw the Supremacy and Sublime status of our Du’aat in Ruhaani ‘Aalam over all others and their position as a Gadaa and Ghulaam in the Hazrat of our Du’aat.


Accepting the izn of Nadiad Jamaa’at, Mazoon ud-Da’wat Saiyedi saheb (dm) on 18th Rabi’ ul-Aakhar 1435 AH, Tuesday along with Hudood-e-Da’wat went to Nadiad and did Iftitaah (opening) of the shop, took misaaq (ruhaani oath of allegiance) and did naseehat to Nadiad mumineen at Faatemi Masjid.  Mumineen-Muminaat were naseebdaar to hear from Mazoon Maulaa the importance of the Sunnat of Misaaq, its obedience, requirement and principles.  They heard the tareekh of 21st Faatemi Sartaaj Maulaana Imaam Taiyeb (as) with great interest and deep ‘aqeedah.

At Ahmedabad, after the namaaz of Maghrib, in the majlis of shab-e-‘Urs, Mazoon Maulaa stressed on the essence of Haqq, the hardships to follow it and the falsehood of its enemies.  Du’aat in their full capacity during their life-time never compromised in urging mumineen to embrace Haqq either openly or secretly.  Mo’jezaat of Shaheed-e-Aa’zam is manifest among mumineen and the Yaqeen-o-Imaan of mumineen for Da’i ul-Haqq is always alive but hidden in their hearts.

On the day of ‘Urs Mubaarak, after the Fajr namaaz, Mazoon Maulaa along with zaa’ereen went for the Ziyaarat of Saiyedna ‘Ali saheb (aq) and there in the Rawzah recited Surah Yaa-Seen, then went for the Ziyaarat of Saiyedna Jalaal saheb (aq) and lastly did Ziyaarat of Muqaddas Maulaa where Qiraat ul-Qur’an, Sadaqallaah, Qaseedah and Faatehah-khwaani was conducted.

  • Heart is concealed and so is the Imaan (faith)
  • Eyes can interpret the condition of faith
  • Tongue and private-parts of the body are kept boneless
  • Faith depends of actions and acceptance of faith by tongue and heart

Clip 2   Saiyedna Badruddin saheb (aq) played a centre-stage role in putting forward the truthfulness of the martyrdom of Saiyedna Ali saheb (aq) before the court of Sunni rulers in the most turbulent times and adverse atmosphere when Maulaa was forced to live beneath the earth for the long period of 17 yrs.  We can feel the pain of helplessness and oppression by reading the composition of his poetry known as Diwaan-e-Hasan.

  History :
  • Saiyedna Badruddin Hasan bin Wali saheb (aq), the 31st Da’i al-Mutlaq al-Alavi, did khidmat of Saiyedna Ali bin Ibraheem ash-Shaheed (aq) and Saiyedna Zakiyuddin Saheb (aq) whole-heartedly with full dedication and sincerity which gained him the status and rank of Mukaasir in the last days of Saiyedna Ali (aq). He was then ascended to the martabah of Mazoon during the time of Saiyedna Zakiyuddin Saheb (aq).

  • He is the only Da’i ul-Mutlaq of India who stayed in the basement beneath the ground (called in the vernacular language as taaka) for a long period of 17 years due to the khawf of mukhaalefeen and harsh political circumstances.  He used to carry out the responsibilities of Da’wat through his hudood and accordingly guide the mumineen in the most challenging times when they were under threat by the ferocious enemies.

  • Sensing the seriousness of the religious scenario in Ahmedabad where the life and livelihood of Alavi mumineen was frequently targeted and subjected to unbearable oppression, Muqaddas Maulaa ordered his Mazoon Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb to prepare mumineen for the migration towards the peaceful land where the barakat of Da’wat would ascend and the jama’at of mumineen would flourish.  Vadodara, the birth place of Saiyedna Ali Saheb (aq), the place of peace and tranquility, was selected as Daar ul-Hijrah.  Muqaddas Maulaa did wasiyat to 32nd Da’i ul-Mutlaq Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb that, after his death he should no longer stay in Ahmedabad but migrate to Vadodara along with Da’wat khazaana, ahl-o-ayaal, hudood and mumineen. He instructed him to establish the markaz and seat of Da’wat-e-Haadiyah in Vadodara.

  • During his stay in taka where he confined himself from the eyes of commoners and only some hudood were aware of his whereabouts, made unparallel composition of qaseedahs (eulogy), maraasi (elegy), naseehat (admonition), fazaa’il (merits) in Arabic language which later came to be known as “Diwaan-e-Hasan”.  It comprises of the details reflecting the contemporary events, political up-downs, relations with Mughal dominion, proof of the truthfulness of Da’wat-e-Alaviyah, merits of Ahl ul-Bayt (as), halaal-o-haraam, allegorical description of the Da’wat of Sauyedna Jalaal, Saiyedna Dawoodain, Saiyedna Safiyuddin, Saiyedna Ali and Saiyedna Zakiyuddin saheb qaddasallaho arwaahahum.

  • This Diwaan is a great legacy for us as it is a autograph copy written by the mubaarak hands and beautiful khutoot (handwritings) of Muqaddas Maulaa which makes us realize the ilmiyat and ruhaaniyat of Muqaddas Maulaa and refreshes the harshness of the life of that testing time in which our Muqaddas Maulaa stood determined for the cause of haqq and imaan.
