On the eve of the urus, 19mi Raat (24th April-Sunday), Syedna Fakhruddin delivered his first waaz after becoming Dai al-Mutlaq. The flow of Imamuz-zaman’s SA ta’yeed was manifest in the bayaan. The heritage of the ‘ilm of the 51st, 52nd and 53rd Dai was apparent in every sentence. For mumineen the bayaan brought solace that Syedna Qutbuddin lives in his successor.
