Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS presided over the Milad Mubarak Majlis of Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA on 27th Zilqada at Darus Sakina. After Sharbat and wadhwanu, qasidas written by selected abyaat from qasidas by the 51st, 52nd and 53rd Dais were recited.
In the majlis, Syedna TUS enriched mumineen with bayaan of the ‘ilm of Aale Mohammed, the ma’rifat and recognition of our awliyaa’ kiraam, and with his benedictions and do’a.
Syedna Qutbuddin TUS recited the Quranic ayat: “of these Messengers some we have caused to excel others” (tilkar-rusulu faddalna ba’dahum ‘ala ba’d – Surat al-Baqara: 253), explaining that while the standing and maqaam of each Messenger is great and distinguished, Allah Ta’ala has especially honored our Nabi Mohammed Rasulullah SA. Though he was the last of the Prophets, he was their seal, khatamul anbiyaa’, and their leader, sayyidul anbiya’.
In the Du’aat Mutlaqeen, Syedna said, the standing and maqaam of Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA is distinguished: the Sun among the Du’aat, “shamsud-du’aat al-mutlaqeen”. Syedna added that Syedna Taher Saifuddin said that the 43rd Dai Syedna Abdeali Saifuddin RA received exceptional inspiration, fayz and ta’yeed from the Imam, but that he, the 51st Dai, received even more. When the 51st Dai composed one of his many Risalats, he once said to Syedna Qutbuddin that, “the pen cannot keep up with the inspiration, ta’yeed and fayz that is received.” Syedna recited a bayt from Syedna Taher Saifuddin’s Munajaat in which he offers thanks to Allah Ta’ala for this bounty.
Syedna Qutbuddin then recited a passage from a waaz by the 51st Dai in which he prays for his Mansoos and Mazoon Syedna Mohmmed Burhanuddin RA, who was doing waaz in Mumbai at the time. The 51st Dai said that his Mansoos and Mazoon was doing waaz and bayaan with the inspiration and ta’yeed. Syedna Qutbuddin asserted that this statement was exclusively used by Syedna Taher Saifuddin for his Mansoos, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin. While the 51st Dai may have praised his other sons on various occasions, the reference to ta’yeed was only used for his Mansoos.
Other than Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA, Syedna Qutbuddin asserted, the only person for whom this statement was used for by the 51st Dai was for his 11th son, Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin. Syedna Qutbuddin narrated in detail how he received the handwritten misaal (letter) penned by the 51st Dai. Syedna Qutbuddin was in Udaipur and he had performed Ashara Mubaraka waaz for the first time at the ripe age of 21. He received a message from Busaheba Aamenah Aaisaheba that an important letter was sent by registered post and that he should look out for it. The letter arrived when Syedna Qutbuddin was in a bethak surrounded by mumineen. Upon opening the letter and seeing the handwriting of the 51st Dai, his heart yearned for him (dil bharaay aayu). Among the deep and meaningful words penned by the 51st Dai in the misaal were these: “we offered thanks… that you delivered with Allah’s aid and the flow of the ta’yeed of his waliyy (Imamuz-zaman) alayhis salaam, and that too in the prime of your youth, the waaz in Ashara Mubraka.” The 51st Dai indicated clearly by this statement what he foresaw for his 11th son. Referring to Syedna Qadi al-Nu’man’s Asaas-ut-Taweel, Syedna added that Nabi Ya’qub foresaw that his 11th son, Nabi Yusuf, would succeed him when he saw the signs that he was receiving ta’yeed.
Syedna Qutbuddin ended the bayaan with guidance and maw’izat to mumineen to follow the true and righteous path, he beseeched doa for them and recited the shahadat of Imam Husain SA.
We offer praise and thanks to Allah Ta’ala for showing us the right path to follow is the true successor of the 51st and 52nd Dais, Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin. May Allah Ta’ala grant a long life to our Maula and may we soon hear the good tidings of Nasre Aziz and Fathe Mubeen.
