...The 13th Dai al-Mutlaq, Syedna Ali bin Syedna Ibrahim RA in Yemen had established his control over the fortress named Kawkabaan. Soon after, one of the enemies of Da’wat gathered a large army and men converged on Kawkabaan from far and wide.

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.
