Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS began this year’s (1445H) Ashara Mubaraka waaz by putting forth logical arguments that necessitate the presence of a divine guide - God’s proof upon creation (hujjat) - in every age. He narrated 3 arguments Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA stated against those who falsely claimed the position of Dai after the demise of Syedna Burhanuddin RA.

Syedna TUS then narrated the story of Taloot Nabi (Saul), and how he was granted victory over Jaloot (Goliath) at the hands of Dawood Nabi (David). He explained the taweel meaning behind the famous account of how Dawood Nabi killed Jaloot and two other enemies together with one stone. Syedna TUS narrated the ayat quoted above, stating that with God’s permission, fath-e-mubeen will happen.

Syedna TUS explained the function of burooj (zodiac) and their ta’seer (effect) upon this world. He narrated the taweel meaning and symbolic significance in religion of the sky, the burooj (zodiac), the sun, and the moon, extolling the virtues of our Mawali Tahireen.

Aqa Maula TUS concluded the waaz by narrating the tragedy that befell Husain SA, his Ahl-e-Bayt, and his companions in Karbala with great fervor and sorrow. He urged Mumineen to garner reward by weeping for Husain during these solemn days.


Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS will deliver the first Ashara Mubaraka waaz on 2nd Muharram in Mazaar-e-Qutbi Complex at 10:30am India time (Wed 19 July). Syedna TUS graciously granted raza for the waaz to be relayed live worldwide on YouTube.
