57) “You are in [front of] our eyes”

14 March 2015

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

* وَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ فَإِنَّكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا ۖ وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ 

(Surat al-Tur: 48)

And await patiently the judgement of your Lord, for surely you are before Our eyes. And glorify with praise of your Lord when you rise. 

Many times in bayaan during these last months Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS has quoted a part of the above mentioned Qur’anic ayat: you are in [front of] our eyes (innaka bi a’yunina). In the context of this ayat, Syedna beseeches Imam-uz-zaman SA, and asserts that the Imam is the successor to Rasulullah SA and Maulana Ali SA.The Imam is present today, in this moment, on the face of this earth. The Imam is in seclusion, but his Da’i, and his Da’wat, are right in front of his eyes. His heavenly gaze protects his Da’i and from him to his Dai flows divine inspiration. 

The gaze from Imam to Dai is not a physical gaze. It is a gaze of ruhaniyat, a non-physical but spiritual one. In a qasida, Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA writes: 

لي مِن وَليِ اللهِ دَاباً قُربَةٌ

مَعَ مَا يُبَاعِدُ بَيننَا البَيدَاءُ

I am always close to the Imam – waliyullah – no matter how many deserts divide us”. The closeness between the Imam and his Dai is a spiritual one. 

We have seen Syedna Qutbuddin’s faith in Allah Ta’ala and the nazaraat of Imam-uz-zaman SA. It is Syedna’s faith and reliance upon his ta’yeed that is manifest in his steadfastness and conviction.

It is with this faith that Syedna beseeched doa to Allah Ta’ala after praying the shahaadat of Maulatuna Fatema SA on the 10th of Jumadal Ula (the video excerpt of that doa is available on Fatemidawat.com).

It is with this resolve that Syedna will appear in the Bombay High Court to establish that Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin is the Dai of Imam-uz-zaman, the successor of Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA who also appeared in court to establish this and the true successor of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA. 

May Allah Ta’ala grant us the resolve to stand firm in our belief with the Dai of the Imam so that we too are in [front of] the Imam’s eyes.

By the wasila of Imam-uz-zaman SA, may Allah Ta’ala grant nasre-aziz and fathe-mubeen to his Da’I Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS. 

Nasrun minallahi wa fathun qareeb wa bashshiril mumineen.
