The Qur’an says that Sulayman Nabi was presented with swift horses. In some tafsirs by Muslimeen they say that Sulayman got so engrossed in the beauty of his horses that he forgot the evening prayer, as he was admiring their necks and legs. Aqa Maula Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS said that these interpretations of the Qur’an are unreasonable and unthinkable - Allah Ta’ala would not say such things about his Nabi. The true interpretation of the Qur'an is explained by our Imams. Syedna al-Qadi al-Numan expounded the meaning of these verses and said that Sulayman’s kingdom was, in fact, Dawat which was spread far and wide by his missionaries (Du’aat). The most senior of these missionaries, Hujaj, were the beautiful, swift horses which were presented to Sulayman. He loved them sincerely. He gave them the knowledge of how to be more effective in their missions (“admiring the necks”) and he taught them the hidden meanings (tawil) of knowledge (“admiring their legs”). Syedna explained the meaning of the verse that describes the horses standing on three legs, resting the fourth leg slightly above the ground. The Hujaj missionaries have three higher sources from which they draw their inspiration to carry out their mission. The fourth leg represents the Mazoon to whom the Du’at delegate work of the mission, so that the Du’at may take some rest.
Syedna Fakhruddin TUS expounded 3 facets of this verse. The first was Mohammed Rasulullah SA, the Sulayman of our time. When his wafaat was near, he called his Hujaj and gave them three things: first, counsel of staying loyal in khidmat to Maulana Ali SA; second, advice to manage the challenging times ahead in Dawat; and third, Rasullulah shed light on many inner meanings of knowledge. The second facet Syedna explained is Husain AS, who was given the kingdom of Shahadat which ensured that kingdom of Imamat will be in his progeny till Qiyamat (Day of Judgment). The night of Ashura he showed his Hujaj how they would fight the next day, and how they would sacrifice themselves, and also the inner meanings of knowledge. The third facet Syedna explained is Tayyib Imam AS whose Du'at are his "Swift Horses." The Imam loves his Duat dearly. When night falls, i.e. the Imam goes into seclusion, Tayyib Imam gives his Du'at divine inspiration, ta’eed. He spiritually guides them continuously how to establish his Dawat and also gives them the full rein of the inner meaning of knowledge and haqiqat.
In this waaz, Syedna Fakhruddin TUS gave pearls of wise counsel in six keys for happiness. When a wise learned man was imprisoned his students came to him to seek his counsel. He advised them to do six things to maintain a sound mind:. 1. Trust in God -Syedna TUS expounded on this principle and said that we mustn't have “tension,” we must have faith in God (khuda ma bharoso). Syedna advised that stress leads to many undesirable consequences. 2. Whatever is going to be, will be. 3. The best thing you can employ is patience- Syedna TUS explained that it is the tendency of human beings to want instant gratification, to make money quickly for example, and this short sightedness often leads to things falling apart. 4. There are circumstances in which all you can do is have forbearance (sabr). 5. When a calamity befalls you, remember there are others on whom much bigger calamities have befallen. 6. It is only a matter of time that you will get reprieve.
Syedna granted Mumineen invaluable jewels of doa. Syedna Fakhruddin TUS prayed the shahadat of Abbas Alamdar with such intensity of pain, that the picture of Abbas --on a horse, his arms severed from his body, cut off just moments ago, and the water satchel in his mouth - flashed in front of our eyes. We were left shedding tears like rain.
May Allah Ta’ala keep Syedna Fakhruddin Aqa TUS in his safekeeping till the day of Qiyamat, and Mumineen in his benevolence always.
