1431H Shehrullah, Maghrib Isha namaz in Saifee Masjid, Mumbai
For 50 years, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA deputed his Mazoon and Mansoos Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA to lead namaz during Shehrullah al-Mu’azzam in Ghurratul-Masajid Saifee Masjid, Mumbai, whenever Syedna Burhanuddin himself would not be leading there. This amal was in parallel to the amal of Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA who used to depute his Mazoon and Mansoos Syedna Burhanuddin to lead namaz during Shehrullah in Ghurratul-Masajid Saifee Masjid, Mumbai, whenever Taher Saifuddin Mola himself would not be leading there.
Syedna Burhanuddin said in his waaz on 7 Moharram, 1422H (31 March, 2001), in Houston, USA: “the Dai and Mazoon are the names of Moulatuna Fatema; the Mazoon establishes Fatemi Dawat, the Dawat of Imam-uz-Zaman, in partnership with the Dai”. Truly, we saw the realization of this mubarak and deeply meaningful statement most clearly during the holy month of Shehrullah, when Burhanuddin Aqa’s Mazoon used to arrive with shaan-o-shawkat to Saifee Masjid to lead namaz and ibadat. This is the masjid which Syedna Qutbuddin’s father built and in which Syedna Burhanuddin took Qutbuddin Mola’s name hundreds of times in the sacred Misaq and in his waazes.
Could someone have imagined that in this holy place, there will come a people who will pronounce curses upon him, and thereby desecrate the sanctity of this Masjid and the hurmat of Taher Saifuddin Mola and Burhanuddin Aqa? Indeed, in these times, we remember that in Dawat this has happened many times – Banu Umayya for a 1000 months ascended the very minbars (pulpits) on which Rasulullah SA had stood hundreds of times, and while pretending to be the leaders of the Muslims, they declared that Amirul Mumineen was in fact the enemy of Rasulullah, and pronounced curses upon him and his followers.
1431H Laylatul Qadr – Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA and Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA – Rozat Tahera and Badri Mahal
Syedna Burhanuddin RA’s proclamation “the Dai and Mazoon are the names of Moulatuna Fatema; the Mazoon establishes Fatemi Dawat, the Dawat of Imam-uz-Zaman, in partnership with the Dai” stands true and manifest for all whose minds are not marred with the poison of lies and false propaganda. One highlight was during the Night of Moulatuna Fatema, Lailatul Qadr, during the last Shehrullah before our beloved Mola Syedna Burhanuddin suffered the grievous stroke. In Lailatul Qadr, 1431H, Burhanuddin Mola graced Badri Mahal masjid for Isha namaz. After namaz, Syedna Burhanuddin left the masjid while deputing his Mazoon and Mansoos Syedna Qutbuddin RA to lead namaz of Laylatul Qadr in his stead. Syedna Qutbuddin lead the namaz of Washsheq, Istiftah and Nisf-ul-Layl, and prayed ‘hazehis-salaat’, after which Syedna Burhanuddin again graced the masjid for Wasila mubaraka. Syedna Burhanuddin again sent his Mazoon and Mansoos for leading fajer namaz, thereby completing the ne’mats of Lailatul Qadr which are ever flowing until fajer upon all Mumineen.
