5 April 2015

 

We are pleased to present the first 53 issues of Sijill as an e-book (hard copies are also available on request - see below for details) on Fatemidawat.com.

This volume contains the first 53 issues of Sijill, recording the first year of the 53rd Dai-l-Mutlaq’s tenure as Dai. Covering one solar year in 52 weeks, with an additional 53rd week, it chronicles the major events, directives and teachings of Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin’s TUS Fatemi Dawat.

The first Sijill was published with the purpose to announce to mumineen Syedna Qutbuddin’s First Misaaq Majlis after thewafat of Syedna Burhanuddin. The 52nd Dai-l-Mutlaq Maulana-l-Muqaddas Syedna Mohammad Burhanuddin RA passed to his heavenly abode on 16th Rabi-ul-Awwal 1435H (17th January 2014). His true successor Syedna Qutbuddin conducted Khatmul-Qur’an majlis for Burhanuddin Aqa in Darus Sakina for forty solemn days of mourning. Then on 4th Rabi-ul-akhar 1435H, on the mubarak occasion of Imam-uz-zamaan al-Tayyib’s SA Milaad, Imam-uz-zamaan’s Dai conducted his First Misaaq. The name “Sijill” is based on the letter that announced the 21st Imam al-Tayyib’s birth on 4th Rabi-ul-akhar 524H. Syedna Idris Imaduddin RA transcribes in the ‘Uyun al-akhbaar that the 20th Imam Aamir SA wrote of this auspicious newborn to Maulatuna Hurratul Malika SA in Yemen, and of his Nass upon him. Aamir Imam’s “Letter of Glad Tidings” is called in Arabic “Sijill-ul-bishaarat.” Soliciting Sijill-ul-bishaarat’s bishaaraat and barakaat, the weekly newsletter published by Syedna Qutbuddin’s Fatemi Dawat was named “Sijill”.

In a most auspicious correspondence, the 52nd and 53rd issues of Sijill coincided with the Milaad Mubarak of the 52nd and 53rdDais. May Allah Ta’ala grant our beloved Aqamola Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin longest life till Yawm-e-Qiyamat, and may He keep mumeneen mukhleseen in security and happiness under his benign shade.

This volume of the first year’s issues are published with Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin’s TUS raza and doa mubarak.
