Like prayer, fasting, and hajj, zakaat is one of the seven da’aim, or foundational pillars, of the Shari’at of Islam. Zakaat khuda no haqq chhe. For every Mumin, it is compulsory to offer zakaat once every year. Du’aat Kiraam have encouraged Mumineen to araz zakaat during the holy month of Ramadan, in order to gain abundant sawaab. For details on how to araz zakat, please click here.
Recognising the unique challenges of the time where Mumineen cannot always travel to be with Syedna Fakhruddin TUS personally, bethak via videoconferencing will be arranged on a weekly basis for Mumineen who wish to have an audience with Syedna TUS. For further details, click here.

It is our tradition that we recite surats – especially yaseen, doas and qasidas – during ziarat of our Du’aat Kiraam. Syedna Burhanuddin RA gave raza mubarak for the publication of “Tasbeehul Barakatit-tahera” (1385H is the year of Syedna Taher Saifuddin’s wafaat and the numeric value of the name of the hafti is also 1385). This hafti was published for Mumineen to pray from when they came for the ziarat of Syedna Taher Saifuddin in Rozat Tahera. This hafti has been used in Rozat Tahera since that time, and continues to be used also after Syedna Burahnuddin’s wafaat.
After Syedna Qutbuddin’s wafaat, a hafti has similarly been published for Syedna Qutbuddin’s ziarat in Darus Sakina with the raza mubarak of Syedna Taher Fakhruddin. The historic name of the publication is “Sakinatu Tasabeehil Barakatil-qutbiyya” (1437H is the year of Syedna Qutbuddin’s wafaat – and the numeric value of the hafti name is also 1437). Syedna Fakhruddin has advised that those who are out of Mumbai or cannot come for ziarat should recite the included surats, doas and qasidas with the niyyat of Syedna Taher Saifuddin, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin and Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin’s ziarat. The hafti also includes salaams on the 51st, 52nd and the 53rd Dais.
