Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS: "Fajere namaaz parhay, fajar si kaam shuru thaai, Qur'an e Majeed parhi ne, duao parhi ne, tamara din ne shuru karo, dekho ehni barakat tamari zindagi ma tamnay nazar aavsay."

View an excerpt and quote from Syedna's TUS waaz on Facebook.

In the third waaz, Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS explained that the stories of prophets in the Qur’an cannot be truly understood without understanding the taweel, the deeper meanings, behind them. 

In the zikr of Ibrahim Nabi the Quran states, “When Ibrahim  saw the sun rising he said: ‘This is my Lord; this is the greatest of all. But when the sun set he said: ‘O my people! I am free from your guilt of giving partners to Allah.” Syedna explained that when Allah showed Ibrahim the stars, the moon and the sun and Ibrahim said “This is my God,” this statement is shirk (polytheism). But  Ibrahim Nabi, the friend of God, would never breach such trust. Syedna delved deep into the hidden meanings behind these Ayats and made clear the true meanings of this allegory, blessing us with precious gems of ‘ilm. 

In this waaz, Syedna also  explained the critical role of Duaat Mutlaqeen in protecting the Dawat in the dark and difficult time of the seclusion of the Imam.

Syedna also gave precious life lessons to Mumineen and explained that the true identity of a believer encompasses all aspects of his life.  Syedna prayed for Mumineen to uphold the true identity of a Mumin and blessed them with light in their hearts. 

Then Syedna took us to Karbala:  to the moment when Abbas e Alamdaar came to Maula Husain asking his permission to get water from the stream with Sakina’s flask, remembering the fortitude of Abbas who did not take a sip of water when he reached the river because his beloved Maula was thirsty. Syedna described the grief of Husain Imam who found Abbas, his pillar of strength, on the desert sand. Syedna’s bayaan shattered our hearts and spontaneous tears flowed from our eyes.
