- Majalis al Hikma
A thousand years ago, every Thursday, Syedna al-Mu’ayyad al-Shirazi RA answered the questions of his time in the Majalis al Hikma (Wisdom Seminars). Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS will answer the questions of today, in today’s language in a weekly video series entitled 'Majalis al-Hikma', to be published on the Fatemi Dawat YouTube channel in English, Dawat ni Zaban, and Arabic, and will be available as an audio podcast.
Syedna RA declared: The successor of the 51st Dai and 52nd Dai is amongst you, and on this day of Aashura, keeping Allah Ta’ala as my witness, keeping Imam Husain AS as my witness, and keeping Imam-uz-zaman AS as my witness, with the Qur’an Majeed in my hand – the Qur’an from which my bawajisaheb has prayed, that is with me, keeping that Qur’an in hand I declare to you that the 53rd Dai – the servant of Imam-uz-zaman – is Khuzaima Qutbuddin.

The Truth is expounded upon in Syedna’s Qutbuddin's RA Qasida in two parts: the knowledge of Divine Truths (Haqiqat nu ‘ilm) and Syedna’s assertion of his position, the Dai of Imam-uz-Zaman. Click here to read further.
In the midst of the hurricane of events that we are going through, Syedna Qutbuddin TUS began composing his first Risalah Ramadaniyyah. The Risalah is titled ‘Barakaatu ‘irthi-du’aat’, (بركاتُ إرثِ الدُّعاة)– the Barakaat of the Heritage of the Du’aat. The numerical value of the title is 1435H (just as Bismillah is 786 and Ali is 110). Syedna explained that the word irth means wiraasat or heritage. In the Arabic lexicon, irth is defined more particularly as the inheritance of knowledge, while wiraasat is defined as physical inheritance. Click here to read further.
Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA was a beacon of light. It is befitting that Syedna Qutbuddin’s roza, as Syedna Fakhruddin TUS said, “shines for the people of the sky as the stars shine for those on earth.” To contribute, please click here.

Imam Ali Zainul-Abedeen SA is the third Imam—after Hasan Imam SA and Husain Imam SA—in the progeny of Rasulullah SA and Amirul Mumineen Maulana Ali SA. He is widely known as ‘Sajjaad’ (one who performs many sajdas) in light of the 1000 rakaats of namaaz he prayed every night. He composed innumerable priceless doas invoking Allah Taala’s rehmat for all aspects of life here and Hereafter. These doas have been compiled in a book called Sahifa Sajjadiyya. This Sahifa is a priceless treasure for every Mumin who wants to pray to Allah. Not only do its doas teach us how to supplicate Allah Ta’ala in prayer, but they also guide us toward what we must pray for in order to lead a life of peace and prosperity in this world and the next.
This particular doa is one in which Imam Ali Zainul-Abedeen SA prays to Allah Ta’ala for good health and wellbeing. Amirul Mumineen SA in one of his kalaams says that the biggest blessing after ‘imaan’ (belief in Allah and his wali) is good health. In this doa, Imam Ali Zainul Abedeen supplicates Allah Ta’ala to grant him good health in body and spirit, and protect him from all that is evil. He begins the doa with salawaat on Mohammed and Aal-e-Mohammed and repeats this salawaat several times during the doa. Our Hudaat Kiraam have taught us that praying salawaat before, in between, and after a doa ensures that the doa reaches Allah Ta’ala.
