فَإِذَا عَزَمۡتَ فَتَوَكَّلۡ عَلَى ٱللَّهِۚ

When you take a decision with conviction put your trust in Allah 

(Surat Aali Imraan: 159)

The Qur’an Majeed is the book of guidance. In such times we hold true the guidance given in the verse above. This applies to all situations in life. Syedna Qutbuddin has always advised us that when we are firm in our belief then we should move ahead with full conviction. Truth is the source of our conviction. Once our conviction is strong, then we must forge ahead with tawakkul and trust in Allah. Syedna Qutbuddin has taught us that with conviction it is up to us to do all we can, expend all efforts and leave no stone unturned. Then, it is up to Allah. The idea that we must do everything we can with a strong conviction and with full faith in Allah, is one of the most valuable lessons in life. In these days, for the sake of Da’wat, Syedna Qutbuddin is himself a manifestation of complete tawakkul and faith in Allah Ta’ala and his Imam. He is also leading by example that we must to do all we can for what is right with full faith in Allah. Fulfilling his responsibility towards Imamuz Zaman, Syedna Qutbuddin’s primary and sole concern is for the spiritual and temporal well-being of mumineen. His mission (Dawat) is to guide the community, as his predecessor Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin did, on the true path (Sirate Mustaqeem) of a spiritual and moral life that leads to salvation (Najaat) in the hereafter (Aakherat). Drawing strength from the verse quoted above, from our belief and from our faith in Allah, we must follow the example of our Dai and Maula and muster the courage to stand firm for what is right. The time for that is fast approaching. The time for that is now.
