Know all concerned that the 52nd Dai-al-Mutlaq and religious head of the Dawoodi Bohra Community, His Holiness Syedna Mohammad Burhanuddin Saheb RA, left us for his heavenly abode (Jannat).

Following in His Holiness’s traditions, in the manner His Holiness followed his predecessors, I was personally anointed and served as the Mazoon-ud-Dawat (the second most exalted position after Dai-al-Mutlaq) for 50 years during which I had His Holiness’s full trust.

I was also personally anointed by him on 10 December 1965 as his successor, and have succeeded His Holiness as the 53rd Dai al-Mutlaq, and consequently I am the sole Trustee of all the Wakfs/Trusts of the Dawoodi Bohra Community including the Dawat-e-Hadiyah Trust, PTR No. B-729 in Mumbai.

Let it be known to all not to deal with any of the Wakfs/Trusts of the Dawoodi Bohra Community in any manner whatsoever without my permission. Anyone dealing with the same shall do so at his/her own risk.

Issued by the undersigned as the 53rd Dai-al-Mutlaq of the Dawoodi Bohra Community
