With raza of Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS, Shahzada Dr Abdeail bhaisaheb Saifuddin presided over milad majlis of Imam-uz-Zaman SA in London on 4th Rabi ul Aakhur (Sunday 1st January 2017) at 6:00pm, followed by jaman, in Edgware, North London.
When Imam Tayyib SA was born his father, the 20th Imam, Molana al-Amir AS, wrote to his loyal hujjat and queen of Yemen Molatuna Hurratul Malika, informing her of the joyous news of the birth of his blessed son Imam Tayyib AS, and conferring nass upon him.
Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA's qasida mubaraka was recited and Shehzada Dr. Abdeali bhaisaheb Saifuddin did bayan.
In the bayan Abdeali bhaisaheb read the letter in Arabic, and translated it. He talked about new beginnings, how the birth of Imam Tayyib was a harbinger for the bounties of the satr period, and the Duat Mutlaqeen who would lead Dawat in these difficult times to come.
He said that it is a happy coincidence that we start the Gregorian new year with the celebration of this happy and joyous occasion of Milad Imamuz-zaman.
Shehzada saheb recited these and other historical events from the history of Dawat, and what they and our Awliya teach us about making new beginnings, being optimistic, steadfast, and planning for the times ahead, and ultimately succeeding in our resolutions and endeavours.
