"Dawat Abaad Chhe" (Dawat is Strong) - Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS First Waaz, Ashara Mubaraka 1441H: Syedna appoints Mazoon-e-Dawat and Mukasir-e-Dawat
Mumineen had cause to celebrate at the beginning of the new year 1441H, with Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS delivering the bisharat – glad tidings – of the appointment of his Mazoon and Mukasir during the first waaz of Ashara Mubaraka.
Syedna TUS recalled that after the wafaat of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA, Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA established that nass was conferred on him and spread his message of truth, defending the Dawat against its enemies. Syedna TUS recalled that Syedna Qutbuddin RA had the irado of appointing maratib during his ‘ahd but it was not possible within that time.
Syedna TUS passionately stated that he is mu’ayyad with the faiz and tayeed of Imam uz-Zamaan AS and during waaz majlis today, the majlis of Husain AS, he appointed his brother, Syedi Mazoon Saheb Abdeali Bhaisaheb Saifuddin Saheb Ataal Allahu Baqaa’ahu (AAB) to the rutba aaliya of ‘izn, and he appointed his brother, Syedi Mukasir Saheb Husain Bhaisaheb Burhanuddin Saheb Ataal Allahu Baqaa’ahu (AAB) to the rutba saamiya of kasr. Syedna TUS advised both sahebs to do khidmat of Dawatul Haq with ikhlaas and with the tasawwur of haq that they were taught by Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA.
Reactions of joy could be heard throughout Ivan-e-Fatemi at Darus Sakina when the appointments were made and thousands of Mumineen worldwide were fortunate to participate in the event via live broadcast. In this moment it was clearer than ever that Syedna TUS’ statement – that “haq ni Dawat toh abaad che” is manifestly true.
Syedna TUS also reminded Mumineen of the Hereafter, stating that it is precisely matters of the hereafter about which the Du’at Mutlaqeen so often speak. Parents and children endeavour to succeed in school and college, in fact many take out large loans to gain this knowledge – and these are commendable goals. However, just as we learn the language of sciences and humanities, Syedna TUS also advised Mumineen to learn the ‘language of Jannat’ and take the opportunity to enrich our souls. He advised that Mumineen should not take for granted this knowledge that Du’at Mutlaqeen generously impart to Mumineen, especially during the days of Ashara Mubaraka.
Syedna TUS gave sage counsel regarding the dangers of jealousy, explaining that jealousy is, in fact, anger directed towards Allah Ta’ala – stating that this is the biggest sickness that that can befall anyone. Syedna TUS recalled the actions of those who, in their jealous hatred for Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA, actually put their hands on top of Syedna Burhanuddin's hand, which is impermissable.
Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS began first waaz of Ashara Mubaraka 1441H addressing those in his hazrat – both those seated at Darus Sakina in Mumbai and the thousands viewing the waaz online – as Mohammed Rasulullah SAW’s ummat, Maulana Ali AS’ shi’a, Maulatena Fatema AS na mohabbat karnar, and those who do the ma’refat of Imam Hasan AS and Imam Husain AS.
Syedna TUS explained the lofty shaan of the Panjetan Paak AS, recalling the riwayat of Adam Nabi SAW, where Adam Nabi himself took the wasila of the Panjetan. He continued to narrate that in every zamaan there must a leader – a guide for the community. It would be unjust if after the Panjetan there was nobody designated to lead the Mumineen of every age. Therefore, after Imam Husain there is an Imam in every age, and during his satr the silsila of Duat continues unbroken – culminating today in the 54th Dai, Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS.
Syedna TUS explained that during the mubarak ayyam of Ashara Mubaraka, the malaekat count those who attend the majalis of Imam Husain AS – not only counting but also collecting the priceless tears shed by Mumineen. It is these tears shed for Imam Husain AS – the martyr of Karbala – that will raise our station on the day of qiyamat.
The entire waaz mubarak was themed on ‘kalimat-Allah’ – and Syedna TUS explained expounded upon seven facets. One of these seven facets is the Dai and Syedna TUS explained that those destined for maratib are mudakkhara – pre-ordained in Kitabul Ilm.
Syedna TUS ended the waaz with pur-riqqat shahadat bayaan of Imam Husain AS, and Mumineen, Muminaat and farzando present did pur-joshmatam.
