On 26th Rabi ul-Akhir 1438H, Syedna Fakhruddin TUS delivered waaz on the auspicious occasion of his Milad and Takht Nashini jashan. After recitation of qasida “Ya ayyuhat Tayyibu wat-Taheru”, Maulana began the bayaan, addressing Mumineen as those who hold mohabbat (love) and marefat (understanding) of Panjetan, Aimmat and their Duat, and hold fast to them. Maulana related that Imam AS said, “On Qiyamat, we will hold fast to Rasulullah, and you, O Shia, will hold fast to us. Where will we be headed?” One did araz, “towards Jannat, inshallah (God willing).” Imam responded with fervor, “Wallahe (by God), towards Jannat, inshallah.”
Maulana recited and explained the Quranic ayat “and Allah is Ghalib (master) of His amr, but most people do not know” (Surat Yusuf: 21). This Quranic ayat is the alamat of Syedna Taher Fakhruddin. Maulana explained that “amr” refers to the chain of Nass, it can never be adversely affected. Maulana related the incident of Yusuf and Yaqub (this at is from Surat Yusuf) and when the sons of a Nabi conspired to murder Yusuf, Allah remained ghalib over his amr; although they attempted to kill Yusuf out of jealousy for Yaqub’s nazar on him, they could not. The Qur’an Majeed itself states, at the end of Surat Yusuf, that these are not just stories, but lessons and hidayat (guidance) for Mumineen.
Maulana then related the amr of nass in Daur-us-Satr, starting with Anbiya, followed by Panjetan, Aimmat and finally Duat.
Maulana narrated when Syedna Yusuf Najmuddin RA, first Dai of India, returned to Yemen he conferred nass on his Mazoon Syedna Jalal Shamsuddin RA (who was in India). At the time of nass, a person from India did araz to Syedna Yusuf that Syedna Jalal was severely ill and might have already passed away. Syedna Yusuf, cognizant of Khuda’s amr, knew that nass would first reach Syedna Jalal and then only would he pass away. Maulana Fakhruddin explained “one can imagine today, to hand over such a large responsibility in those times with limited communication, it would take days, yet look at the conviction.”
Maulana also narrated when Syedna Abdullah Badruddin conferred nass on Syedna Taher Saifuddin and said “I am aware you, my brother, are alone. But do not despair, Imam-uz-Zaman’s hand is on your back.”
Awliyullah have weathered numerous difficulties, but always delivered Haq, as it is Khuda’s amr. Maulana Fakhruddin stated that “today, I am their waris, and I pray this ayat. The amr has reached me - I am thankful to Syedna Qutbuddin who honored me with this khidmat of Dawat of Imam-uz-Zaman. I will follow the exemplar of my predecessor Duat and remain within the bounds of servitude and perform khidmat of Dawat. This lineage of Duat will continue until the Imam does zuhoor and takes back what is his. Syedna Qutbuddin granted me this ayat as alamat.”
Maulana Fakhruddin did shukr and zikr of Allah Ta’ala’s nemat (blessing) of the training he received from Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin and of Syedna Qutbuddin’s nass on him. He said, “Syedna Qutbuddin conferred nass on me on 27th Moharram ul-Haram, on the Urus of Syedi Fakhruddin Shaheed….When Syedna Qutbuddin passed away, I hold the conviction that now Imam-uz-Zaman’s hand is on my back. His tayeed is ever flowing, Syedna Qutbuddin’s nazaraat is ever flowing. Because of the circumstances in this world, people went astray, but you, Mumineen, held fast to Syedna Qutbuddin. Today, you hold mohabbat of his waris, may Allah Ta’ala grant you the best reward. For the salvation of your souls, with conviction, you have given misaaq, not for worldly reasons. People fear social boycott and other issues in their homes. It is regretful, however, one should maintain fear and conviction for Allah, this is Khuda’s amr, do not be like other people ‘who do not know’. “
Maulana prayed hamd, salawat and did immense doa for Mumineen. He did araz “my life is sacrifice on Imam-uz-Zaman whom I remember day and night.” Maulana prayed salawat on Duat, especially 51st, 52nd and 53rd Dai. Maulana stated “I am Dai, and I establish Dawat and doing doa is wajib on me. I do it now, I always do it, during sajdo. Waaz is relay today, worldwide. In some town, there might only be one Mumin, he might feel very alone. I am telling you not to worry, I remember you always, each and every Mumin. You live in my heart. Remember that we may be separated in this world but in Hereafter, we are all together at Imam-uz-Zaman’s zumra.” Maulana performed doa for himself, and for nasr-e-aziz and fateh mubeen. He prayed that by the wasilo of Imam-uz-Zaman, may the union of Mumineen remain together. Maulana also prayed for the various committees performing khidmat of Dawat. Maulana ended the waaz on the shahadat of Imam Husain.
