As per Syedna’s TUS guidance and irshaad and under the auspices of Zahra Hasanaat, meat from the 99 qurbaani on Eid day was personally distributed by the members of Hizb-e-Khalilullah to nearly 2,500 homes in less affluent areas across Mumbai suburbs.
On the next day, 11th Zilhajjatil il-Haraam 1439H (22nd August 2018), Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS arrived in Dubai on a historic first visit to the city as Dai al-Mutlaq, granting the long-standing wishes and araz of Dubai Mumineen to visit their town and grace them with his presence. It was the azeem sharaf and good fortune of Dubai Mumineen that Syedna TUS graced their town with his presence, especially during the mubarak ayyam of Eid un-Nahr
Syedna TUS was received at Dubai airport with full VIP protocol as “Sultan al-Bohra” (Syedna Burhanuddin RA was commonly and lovingly referred to as Sultan al-Bohra during his numerous safar to Dubai in the past) and was received in a personal motorcade directly from the aircraft door. Mumineen of Dubai eagerly awaited Moulana’s TUS arrival and immediately proceeded to escort Maulana TUS to the residence of Mumin Mukhlis bhai.
On the following day, the 12th of Zilhaj, a qurbani program was organized by Dubai Mumineen, where Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS performed zabihat (neher) of a camel (naaqat) and three sheep in a desert farm in the neighboring emirate (city) of Ajman. Despite the summer heat and the blazing sun, Mumineen and their families had gathered from the early hours of the morning to witness this remarkable event. Around 600kg of fresh meat, obtained from the qurbani, was then packed into 1kg packets and delivered to waiting laborers and workers in a neighboring labor camp in Ajman.
Syedna TUS then proceeded for ziafat majlis where he led Mumineen in Zohr Asr Namaaz. Syedna TUS delivered a bayaan to Dubai Mumineen and prayed the shahadat of Imam Husain SA. (Click here to view video of bayaan mubarak). In the bayaan, Syedna commended Mumineen on adhering to Siraate-Mustaqeem and following the true successor of the 52nd Dai, Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin. He asserted that he continues to establish and defend the Dawat of Haqq just as Syedna Qutbuddin did and advised Mumineen to live with himmat and courage. He encouraged Mumineen to gather in Miqaats and take barakaat. Syedna also bestowed priceless doa for Dubai Mumineen, beseeching Allah Ta’ala to ease their personal difficulties and to give them barakat in rozi. Mumineen then had the opportunity for qadambosi and araz in bethak of Hazrat Imammiyyah.
Despite the large crowd, Syedna TUS heard the arzis of all Mumineen and took time to instruct each and every Mumin in their personal matters – be it about matters of deen, health, family or business. A Misaq majlis was also held, where Mumineen bhaiyo and Muminaat behno gave Misaq to Maulana TUS. Many Mumineen who were meeting Syedna TUS for the first time, were deeply overcome with his presence (haibat) and amazed at his overall personality and acumen.
On the evening of 12th Zilhaj (13mi raat), Syedna TUS led the Mumineen in Maghrib/Isha namaaz.
On Friday, Maulana TUS led Mumineen in Jumoa Zohr Asr Namaaz followed by qadambosi for all. Following Jumoa Namaaz, Maulana TUS then graced the office of a Mumin Mukhlis with his qadam mubarak. Maulana TUS heard several arzi from the Mumin bhai regarding the tough prevailing business environment in the UAE and delivered priceless advice on how to conduct business successfully in a difficult market environment. Maulana TUS also bestowed doa for the success of business and barakat in rozi, quoting the Quran Majeed, that “Khuda Taala delivers rozi to his bandaa‘o from places that they can never even imagine”.
On Friday evening, Syedna TUS departed for Mumbai, but not before delivering even more doa for Mumineen of Dubai and their families. Maulana TUS especially did doa for those bhaiyo and behno who have been (and are being) misled in the current environment, that they see the path of Truth soon and give jawaab to Dawat ul Haqq.
Mumineen of Dubai bid farewell to Maulana TUS with a heavy heart, on the one hand being amazed at the azeem nemat and barakat bestowed on them by their beloved Aqa Maula in such a short period of time and on the other hand sad to see him leave and wishing he could have stayed longer.
