On the occasion of his urus mubarak, our father, the heavenly Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA was alive amongst us as throngs of Mumineen gathered from all over the world in Darus Sakina, Thane.

He was alive in his son and successor Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS.  In the luminous light on his blessed face and the angelic aura surrounding him. Especially when Syedna Fakhruddin Aqa placed his forehead on the qabr Mubarak of his father and tears flowed from his eyes in supplication and remembrance. It was as if both Du’at were one.

Syedna Qutbuddin was alive in the bayaan of Syedna Fakhruddin. The bayaan was about “Iman”, faith. And Syedna Qutbuddin was the exemplar of faith. Aqa Maula outlined 4 pillars of faith explained by Amirul Mumineen SA:

 1. Sabr (Forbearance)

 2. Yaqeen (Conviction)

3. Adl (Justice)

4. Jihad (the Struggle for justice)

Syedna TUS recited verses from the Quran, qasidas of Syedna Taher Saifuddin and other Du’at, and Hadith and Kalam of Rasulullah and Imams to underscore each aspect. He further related events and anecdotes from the history of Panjatan, Imams and Dais to illustrate how they embodied these traits in their lives. He especially emphasized how Syedna Qutbuddin RA had striven all his life in this path, and set a living example for us all today.

He rekindled and refreshed the memories of Syedna Qutbuddin in the hearts of Mumineen and bestowed countless doas, as always, for our Deen and Duniya.

On his urus, Syedna Qutbuddin was alive - and in our hearts, in the hearts of all Mumineen, and in the spirit of Dawat itself - he will be alive always.

Today, Dawat is alive and we as Mumineen are alive because of him.
