بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

أَلَآ إِنَّ أَوۡلِيَآءَ ٱللَّهِ لَا خَوۡفٌ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يَحۡزَنُونَ

For the Awliya’ of Allah, there is no fear and they shall not grieve

(Surat Yunus: 62)

They are the Du’at mutlaqeen Awliyaa’ of Allah Ta’ala. Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA and Syedna Burhanuddin RA often stated that, “aside from Allah and his waliyy we fear no one.” Syedna Qutbuddin TUS is the successor to the 51st and 52nd Dais and is like them in his himmat, courage and conviction. We Mumineen, are the followers of Syedna Qutbuddin, we are the Shi’a of Ali, we will not fear anyone. As Maulana Ali said, a Mumin “should not fear [anything] except his sins.” In these times , we must be courageous. In difficulty we must seek the wasila of our Mawaali Tahereen. And we must seek the hazrat and doa of our Dai – Syedna Qutbuddin. As Syedna Taher Saifuddin says in his qasida addressing Syedna Noor Mohammed Nooruddin RA:

You are our refuge, you are our sanctuary

In all that grieves us, in all afflictions and all calamities

Whenever Da’wat and the children of Da’wat have been persecuted, Imam-uz-zaman’s Dai has always faced the odds and protected Mumineen. Syedna Taher Saifuddin confronted the enemies of Da’wat in the court of law – and so has Syedna Burhanuddin. Those who are oppressing Mumineen in the name of religion and in the name of Da’wat, they are surely not the people of religion, nor the people of truth. Syedna Qutbuddin will safeguard the interests of Da’wat and mumineen. Mumineen are urged to stand firm with their Dai, for the sake of truth, for the sake of future generations, and for the sake of najaat and salvation.
