19th Zil Qa’da was the Urus Mubarak of the 19th Dai al-Mutlaq Syedna Idris Imaduddin RA. Syedna Idris was an unmatched scholar who wrote numerous kitaabs which are a mine of knowledge in Da’wat’s library. These include Zahrul Ma’ani, Nuzhatul-Afkaar and the 6 volume history of Dawat from the time of Rasulullah SA until Syedna Idris’s age titled ‘Uyun-ul-Akhbar.
Syedna Idris resided in the fort of Shibam, a few miles from the Hutaib, where Syedna Hatim RA resided. Syedna Idris is said to have composed most of his writings near a spring-well in Shibam.
In 1431H Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA constructed and performed the Iftitah of the Qubbah Mubaraka of Syedna Idris in Shibam. Photos by Shz Dr Aziz Bhaisaheb of the beautiful Qubba mubaraka and the adjoining landscape have been uploaded on Fatemidawat.com.
Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS did araz of tehniyat and congratulations to Syedna Burhanuddin RA on this momentous occasion by composing a qasida. These are several verses from the qasida with translation:
