22nd Shabaan (Friday 20th June) is the Urus Mubarak of Maulatuna Hurratul Malika. Hurratul Malika means the Free Queen, her name was Sayyida Arwa binte Ahmad. This was the time when the Fatimid Imams were reigning in Egypt and North Africa. Maulatuna Hurratul Malika ruled Yemen and established the Imam’s Dawat in her kingdom. She was the Hujjat of the Imam and is known in the Dawat us-Satar as the mother of the Du’aat Mutlaqeen. Before Tayyib Imam’s seclusion, it was at the hands of Maulatuna Hurratul Malika that Aamir Imam, the 20th Imam, appointed Syedna Zoeb b. Musa as the Dai representing the Imam in seclusion. She faced many trials and tribulations and remained the beacon of loyalty to the Fatimid Imam. Her qabar Mubarak is in Zi Jibla in Yemen where mumineen go for ziarat. Maulana al-Khattab, the Mazoon of Syedna Zoeb wrote a qasida in Maulatuna Hurratul Malika’s remembrance and praise.
