This week's Sijill Article by Shz Dr. Aziz bhaisaheb discusses the Quranic ayat on the left. Addressing Rasulullah SA, the Quran emphatically states that with every difficulty there is ease. History is, in a way, a succession of ‘usur and yusur.

At the end of the shahaadat Majlis of Maulatuna Fatema SA on 10th Jumadal-Ula, after narrating the shahaadat of Maulatuna Fatema, Syedna Qutbuddin TUS beseeched Allah Ta’ala with a heartfelt doa.
Syedna prayed for upcoming trial in the Bombay High Court and he also beseeched doa for all mumineen, muminaat and their children that, “for each mumin, may each of his wishes be fulfilled.” With confidence and faith in Allah Ta’ala he said that he would with the ta’yeed and inspiration of the Imam establish the Truth and Haqq. He also related this with Syedna Taher Saifuddin’s statement that, “I will return.”
In his declaration Syedna’s conviction and strength is manifest. His fervor to serve the Imam’s Da’wat and his care for the children of his Da’wat is apparent. His confidence in the veracity and truthfulness of his statement is self-evident. This year, on the day of Aashura, after doing the tasbeeh of the names of the 21 Imams and 52 Dais as per the tradition of Da’wat, Syedna took the Qur’an Majeed in his hand and declared just as Imam Husain declared on the day of Aashura. Imam Husain rode out to the assembled army with the Qur’an Majeed and placed the Quran Majeed on his forehead. He declared, “between me and you is the Book of Allah Ta’ala.”
