...Because of the manner in which Rasulullah appointed Amirul Mumineen, Rasulullah established the principle that in every day and age a maula, a guide, a leader is necessary for the continuity of Dawat and the guidance, salvation and najaat of mumineen. In every age this maula, who is the representative of Allah Ta’ala, who is our link to Him, must walk this earth in flesh and blood.

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.”
Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin is deeply saddened by the tragedy that befell hundreds of Hujjaj in Mecca on Hajj this year. Syedna prays may Allah ta’ala grant forbearance to those who have lost their family and friends, and may he give strength and speedy recovery to those injured. Hajj is a fundamental pillar of our faith, where Muslims flock in their millions every year and will keep coming in greater numbers; may Allah ta’ala be the guardian and protector of all those who embark on this momentous and blessed journey for all time to come.
