This year, Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS graciously deputed Dr. Moiz Bhaisaheb Mohyuddin for Ashara Mubaraka khidmat in London, UK. Throughout Ashara Mubaraka, Dr Moiz Bhaisaheb narrated a summary of the events from the beginning of creation to the present time, whilst expounding the virtues (faza’il) of Mawali Tahereen. He prayed the shahadat of Imam Husain SA, his Ahl-e-Bayt and Ashaab with great fervor, renewing and revitalizing Mumineen’s grief.
Dr Moiz Bhaisaheb began by summarizing the reason for the creation of this world and the presence of an Imam ever since human kind was created.
Although in seclusion, the Imamat has been ever present throughout the history of man-kind and will continue until the day of Qiyamat. He also related the unique events which occurred in Musa Nabi’s time and the trials and tribulations he faced in doing dawat, whilst facing opposition from the household of Fir’aun. Dr Moiz bhaisaheb drew parallels with between Musa Nabi and Haroon Nabi, and Rasulullah SA and Maulana Ali AS narrating the hadeeth of Rasulullah SA; “Ali is to me as Haroon was to Musa.” He then narrated the life of Isa Nabi’s, detailing the events in lead up to his crucifixion as well as his numerous miracles.
Dr. Moiz bhaisaheb narrated the history of Rasulullah AS’s forefathers; rightful Imams and leaders of the Hashimi Qurayshi tribes of Mecca. He related unique stories of Imam Hashim and how he earned the name ‘Al-Hashim’, as well as Imam Qusay and other Imams in his descent. Dr Moiz Bhaisaheb explained how Rasulullah became Nabi and the trials he faced in propagating Islam. Along with Rasulullah SA, Moiz bhaisaheb related many zikars of Maulana Ali AS and Maulatuna Fatema AS. He narrated that the marriage of Ali AS and Fatema AS was done by Khuda Ta’aala in heaven before it was on Earth by Rasulullah AS. Moiz bhaisaheb then narrated many of the sayings of Rasulullah SA for Imam Hasan AS and Imam Husain AS, and recounted many of their faza’il.
Moiz Bhaisaheb explained that the Imamat would continue in the lineage of Imam Husain AS until the day of Qiyamat and related the events which occurred during the Fatimid era. He explained how the different factions broke off from following the true Imamat and narrated the historical events surrounding them. Moiz Bhaisaheb then went on to recount the transfer of Dawat on the hands of Maulatuna Hurratul Maleka to the Duat Mutlaqeen during the seclusion of the Imamat. He explained how the ‘ilm (knowledge) of Syedna Mo’ayyad Al-Sheerazi was transferred at the hands of Hudood Fozala such as Syedna Lamak, Syedna Yahya, and Maulatuna Hurratul Maleka to the first Dai Syedna Zoeb in Yemen, praying the well known bayt by Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA:
من دعاة قد ايدتهم سواري
بركات المؤيد الشيرازي
The flow of the blessings (barakaat) of Al-Mo’ayyad Al-Sheerazi has aided the Duat Mutlaqeen.
He continued to explain the tribulations faced by Duat Mutlaqeen in Yemen and India and the great sacrifices and efforts they have made for the salvation of the souls of Mumineen.
Dr. Moiz bhaisaheb also recounted good counsel from the teachings of Mawali Tahereen on how one should lead one’s daily life with the purpose of Aakherat always in sight. In particular, he narrated verses from the Qasida of Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA,
"العقل في الانسان اعلى الجوهر، متلالئ في نفسه كالازهر".
Dr Moiz Bhaisaheb prayed the shahadat of Imam Husain AS with great fervor and grief, especially on the day of Aashura. Tears flowed from Mumineen’s eyes as he recounted the great musibat which befell Imam Husain AS, his family, and his companions. Remembering the plight of the grandson of Rasulullah SA, every Mumin called out Ya Husain, Ya Husain.
May Allah Ta’aala grant Dr Moiz Bhaisaheb afzal-ul-jaza and preserve him under the saya of Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS.
