The Risalah Ramadaniyya Tradition: A Brief Introduction
In the midst of the hurricane of events that we are going through, Syedna Qutbuddin TUS began composing his first Risalah Ramadaniyyah. The Risalah is titled ‘Barakaatu ‘irthi-du’aat’, (بركاتُ إرثِ الدُّعاة)– the Barakaat of the Heritage of the Du’aat. The numerical value of the title is 1435H (just as Bismillah is 786 and Ali is 110). Syedna explained that the word irth means wiraasat or heritage. In the Arabic lexicon, irth is defined more particularly as the inheritance of knowledge, while wiraasat is defined as physical inheritance. Click here to read further.

Is there any hardship which is not dispelled when “Ya Ali, Ya Ali” is recited?! – Syedi Abdeali Imaduddin QA
In the year 1432H, all Mumineen in Aalam-e-Imaan celebrated the grand occasion of beloved Burhanuddin Aqa (RA)’s 100th Milad Mubarak. This mubarak year was inaugurated by Syedna Burhanuddin with the blessed zikr of Imam Husain (SA) during Ashara Mubaraka in Mumbai. No one imagined that this would be the very last Ashara during which Syedna Burhanuddin would deliver his blessed sermons. As was the practice of Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA) with his Mazoon and Mansoos Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, Syedna Burhanuddin would similarly send his Mazoon and Mansoos Qutbuddin Maula (TUS) to various cities around the world to deliver sermons. This year however, Burhanuddin Aqa gave farman to Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin to remain with him in Mumbai. He then deputed Qutbuddin Maula to lead imamat namaz on pehli raat, the 1st night of this year, and thereafter everyday throughout Ashara immediately after he would complete waaz mubarak. Burhanuddin Aqa also deputed Qutbuddin Maula to lead Maghrib Isha namaz everyday, including on the mubarak night of Ashura. On the mubarak day of Ashura, Syedna Burhanuddin charged Syedna Qutbuddin with reciting the doa and taking vasila.
The following video is of Syedna Qutbuddin giving niyyat of namaz for tulul umr of Dai-Zaman on Yaume-Ashura from the qibla of Ghurratul Masajid Saifee Masjid, Mumbai.
Qutbuddin Mola takes vasila mubaraka on Yaume-Ashura
Each Mumin remembers with loving memory the qudsi and noorani manzar when Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Maula used to rise on the takht after completing waaz mubarak to give Imami shahi salaami and barakat to all Mumineen and Muminaat. Syedna Burhanuddin used to say many a time in his waaz mubarak that my barakat and blessings reach all mumineen, and “the highest among them (receives) the highest portion (al-aʿla fal aʿla wal afdal fal afdal)” of these blessings. Syedna Qutbuddin received this highest portion of these heavenly blessings throughout the mubarak reign of Burhanuddin Aqa, and today continues to bestow those Imami barakaat to all Mumineen and Muminaat.
The following video captures the holy occasion of Burhanuddin Aqa’s Imami shahi salaami after completion of waaz during Ashara Mubaraka 1432H. The noorani manzar of Burhanuddin Aqa bestowing nazaraat and salaami to his Mazoon and Mansoos can also be seen.
