About

Dawat-e-Hadiya (lit. guided mission; henceforth ‘Dawat’) is the administration of the Muslim Dawoodi Bohra community lead by the 53rd Da’i al-Mutlaq His Holiness Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS. Dawoodi Bohras believe in the Oneness of God, Muhammad SA as His Rasul and ‘Ali SA as his Wasiyy. In every age an Imam in the progeny of Muhammad and Ali guides mumineen, and in the period of his satr - after the seclusion of the 21st Imam al-Tayyib SA - the Imam’s Dai guides mumineen to the right path. The Imam is said to be present by the hierarchy of Dawat: The Dai and his Mazoon and Mukasir. The 52nd Dai Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA appointed Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin as the 53rd Dai. Until the Dai appoints individuals in these rutbas with the Imam’s ilhaam, the Dai ‘carries’ the rutbas, and these rutbas remain with him. This is the true silsilo (chain of authority) of Dawat-ul-haqq.
