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.

His Holiness Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA, has, in furtherance of his assertion of being the 53rd Dai al-Mutlaq, which is based on truth (Haq) and principle, filed a Suit in the High Court of Mumbai against Shehzada Mufaddal Saifuddin seeking reliefs that the Honourable Court declares him to be the 53rd Dai al-Mutlaq, and to restrain Shehzada Mufaddal Saifuddin from in any manner holding himself out as or doing any acts, deeds or things as the Dai al-Mutlaq of the Dawoodi Bohra Community. Prior to this His Holiness Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin made repeated attempts to resolve this internally, including by an invitation to debate this matter and establish his rightful claim based on nass conferred on him by His Holiness Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb RA , the 52nd Dai al-Mutlaq, following the guidance of His Holiness Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA , the 51st Dai al-Mutlaq. All the attempts made by His Holiness Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin, have been ignored and rebuffed by Shehzada Mufaddal Saifuddin, who has made several false and contradictory claims as to how nass was performed on him.
The false claims made by Shehzada Mufaddal Saifuddin and those close to him has resulted in a deep gash in the smooth fabric of the Dawoodi Bohra Community, with wives and children having had to leave their husbands and fathers, women and children, particularly girls being oppressed, and use of force becoming prevalent in a peace-loving Community that enjoyed love and harmony, and prospered. For the last 100 years this continued under the grace of His Holiness Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA and His Holiness Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb RA . During  of these years, out of which for about 50 years he was the Mazoon al-Mutlaq (second most important position), His Holiness Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin contributed to the welfare of the Community
Having faithfully served the Community with complete love, faith and respect for His Holiness Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA and His Holiness Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb RA, His Holiness Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin continued on the true path (Siratul Mustakeem) of a spiritual and moral life that leads to salvation (Najaat) in the Hereafter (Aakherat) and encouraged the members of the community to scale heights of religious and temporal knowledge and education, to encourage the pursuit of excellence in various fields of business and professional services, and to lead a life of excellence in all fields.
To ensure that the path set by the previous Dai al-Mutlaqs is followed, and the Community is not torn asunder by false claimants, and having full faith in the Indian Judiciary, His Holiness approached the Honourable Court for appropriate remedies.
His Holiness Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin believed that these recent developments are of paramount importance for the Dawoodi Bohra Community for generations to come and unless resolved completely, can also have adverse implications on the sacrosanct notions of religious freedom, rights for women and communal harmony of our great Nation.
