In previous Majalis, Syedna Fakhruddin TUS explained the cause of the Sunni Shi’a split (Majlis 47-49) and the split of the Zaydis in the time of Mohammed al-Baqir SA (Majlis 50). He then addressed the split of the Isna-Ashari (Twelver Shi’a) faction following Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq SA (Majlis 51-52) and the Nizari split after al-Mustansir billah SA (Majlis 56). In this Majlis Syedna discusses the split of the Majeedi faction after the 20th Imam al-Aamir bi-ahkaamillah SA.

After Imam al-Aamir’s SA assassination, the Majeedi faction followed the false claim of the Abdul-Majeed, the son of the 20th Imam’s uncle. Abdul-Majeed alleged that the 20th Imam appointed him, the son of the 20th Imam’s uncle, as his successor, just as Rasulullah SA appointed Maulana Ali SA, the son of his uncle Abu-Talib AS, as his successor. What are the arguments of our Hudaat Kiraam against this false belief? How do they establish the rightful Imamate of the 21st Imam, al-Tayyib Abul-Qasim Amirul Mumineen SA?

What were the events that transpired in Egypt that led Abdul-Majeed to claim the Imamate for himself after the assassination of the 20th Imam? Why did Aamir Imam give Abdul-Majeed the title ‘Master of the pledge of the Muslims’ (waliyyu-ahdil-muslimeen)? How were the Du’aat of the Imam oppressed in Misar? How did Maulatuna Hurratul Malika AS, the Queen of Yemen, confront Abdul-Majeed and establish the Nass of Tayyib Imam SA? How did the Du’at Mutlaqeen in Yemen guide back to Haqq those who were caught in Abdul-Majeed’s fitnat?

Syedna TUS answers these questions in this Majlis, the 60th in the Majalis al Hikma series.
