The ten day period between the Milads of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA and Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA saw countless barakaat showered upon Mumineen Mukhliseen, click here to read further details about the multiple day program. Amongst these ne’mato were three consecutive days of sabaq on 27th raat, 28th raat, and 29th raat of Rabi ul-Aakhar, with Mumineen doing talaqqi of ‘ilm directly from Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS. In addition to Mumineen present at Darus Sakina, Mumineen across the world participating in sabaq halqas were able to join via secure video link.
During the course of the three days of sabaq, Maulana Taher quoted Syedna Qutbuddin, that a Mumin should embrace three characteristics in order to lead a holy and blissful life: ta’at (obedience to Allah and his wali), shukr (giving thanks), and sabr (patience and fortitude). In each sabaq, Maulana bestowed precious pearls of wisdom to the gathered audience, which will be a beacon of light that guides us through this life into the blissful hereafter, insha’allah. In each sabaq, Syedna quoted Qur’an Majeed ayats, and hadith and kalam of Rasulullah, Maulana Ali, Imams and Dais. He narrated historical precedents for each theme, the culmination being in the paak sirat, the pure life, of the 53rd Dai Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin. And with each narrative and quotation he plumbed the deeps of the Fatemi philosophy of life.
The flow of Imam-uz-Zamaan AS’ tayeed was manifest as Huzurala imparted knowledge from dawat kutub such as Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA’s Rasail, Syedna Hatim RA’s Tanbih ul-Ghafileen, and Syedna Mu’ayyad us-Shirazi’s Majalis Mu’ayyadiyah, amongst others. Aqa Maula also often recalled the hidayat that he received whilst receiving sabaq from Syedna Burhanuddin RA.
Apart from insight into the esoteric doctrines of Dawat, Syedna imbibed upon Mumineen very practical guidance on how to conduct their day to day lives under challenging circumstances, and how to assign priorities in a rapidly evolving world that moves much faster and is very different to that in which generations before us lived.
On 29th raat, Milad raat of Syedna Qutbuddin, the sabaq took on a more personal note, with Huzurala devoting more time to the zikr, remembrance, of Syedna Qutbuddin, and in particular describing the special relationship that he held with Syedna Taher Saifuddin and the nazaraat of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin. Syedna also shared priceless hidayat of Syedna Taher Saifuddin, which Syedna Qutbuddin – Bawajisaheb – had imparted onto him.
After the final sabaq was completed, Mumineen offered sajadatus shukr for the azeem ne’mato and continuous flow of ‘ilm and hidayat received during sabaq and especially for the opportunity to learn directly from the na’ib of Imam-uz-Zaman himself.
