We always remember the calamity of Aashura. There is no grief like it. There is no sorrow like it. Especially as we approach Imam Husain’s SA Chehlum, we also remember those who survived Karbala and the calamities that befell them. Click here to read further.
Our lament for the martyrs of Karbala is unlike any other grief. Although innumerable tragedies and calamities have befallen since then, whether they are atrocities or natural disasters, at some point they are relegated to the annals of history. Not Karbala. Click here to read further.
The first ten days of Muharram (Ashara Mubaraka) commemorate the unparalleled sacrifice and commitment that Imam Husain AS, the grandson of the prophet Mohammad SA, and his family and close companions (numbering 72), demonstrated on the plains of Karbala, Iraq. Click here to read further.
Like prayer, fasting, and hajj, zakaat is one of the seven da’aim, or foundational pillars, of the Shari’at of Islam. Zakaat khuda no haqq chhe. For every Mumin, it is compulsory to offer zakaat once every year. Du’aat Kiraam have encouraged Mumineen to araz zakaat during the holy month of Ramadan, in order to gain abundant sawaab. For details on how to araz zakat, please click here.
Recognising the unique challenges of the time where Mumineen cannot always travel to be with Syedna Fakhruddin TUS personally, bethak via videoconferencing will be arranged on a weekly basis for Mumineen who wish to have an audience with Syedna TUS. For further details, click here.
Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA was a beacon of light.

Mumineen participate in the khidmat of niyaaz and also contribute regularly to join in the sawaab of Mazaar-e-Qutbi Niyaaz. If you would like to participate, click here.
Mumineen should uphold the Shariat to the best of their ability. They should undertake the seven Da’a’im: walaayat, tahaarat, namaaz, zakaat, roza, hajj and jihaad (struggle against evil). All aspects of a mumin’s life—religious ritual, business transactions, social dealings, his entire way of life—should be governed by the laws of Allah Ta’ala.
Mumineen should uphold the highest standards of morality. Following the example of their Mawali Tahereen, they should strive to be good, honest, decent and kind human beings. Tolerance is a key aspect of our religion, and mumineen should maintain the dignity and respect of their mumin brothers and sisters at all times. The scale should be taqwa and piety, not wealth or connections. A mumin’s faith, imaan, is his or her badge of honor, and there should be no intolerance or persecution within our community. Amir-ul-mumineenSA has said, “mumin mumin na bhai chhe” (al-mumin akhu-l-mumin). And Syedna HatimRA has said that mumineen are children of the same spiritual father and mother, Dai and Mazoon, and as such, they should help one another, care for one another, and sincerely love one another as brothers and sisters.
The hurmat and sanctity of each mumin must be preserved. No one should be allowed to malign others. The color-coded system of green, yellow and red safai-chitthi instituted by certain elements within the administration is wrong; it creates dissension among mumineen. It is imperative that there be unity in the jama’at; that all jama’at members live in harmony and concord. In Dawat majalis and in all mumineen gatherings, an atmosphere of joy and tranquility should prevail. Spiritual elevation is obtained by learning and deeds, ilm and amal, and it is Allah Ta’ala who determines it. It is not for the Aamil to decide who is green and who is red.
Revealing another’s sin is itself a grave sin. Just as it is imperative that mumineen shun what God has prohibited, muharramaat, it is also imperative that they should conceal the slips of others. Amir-ul-mumineen praised the person who censures himself, not others (al-munsifo min nafsihi). Indeed, Khuda Ta’ala is merciful and forgiving, our Imam-uz-zamaan is the heir of Rasulullah, mercy for all the worlds, rehmatun li-l-aalameen, and of Amir-ul-mumineen, and our Dai sits on the Imam’s throne of mercy, rehmat-ni-gaadi. Amir-ul-mumineen also said, “If I saw a mumin in an act of indecency I would throw my own robe upon him to hide his shame” (law ra’aytu l-mumina ala fahishatin la-satartuhu bi-sawbi haza). The Mufaddali drive to humiliate mumineen and expose their human errors is wrong and against the command of Maula Ali.
Mumineen should also strive to be helpful to all God’s children. Rasulullah has said, “All humans are children of God, and God loves him who helps his children,” (al-khalqu iyal-ul-lah wa-ahabbu n-nasi ila-llahi anfa’uhu li-‘iyalihi). Mumineen should be able to live happily with their families in the privacy of their homes, and in peace and harmony with the community of mumineen, as well as with their fellow human beings everywhere. We should strive to be an open and inclusive society. We must restore the tradition of mutual respect and fellowship with other religious communities, and engage in enhancing the social welfare of fellow Indians and of our compatriots in whichever country we live.
