“Abu Mohammed, Your Father – Taher Saifuddin”

29 December 2015

On the auspicious occasion of Tabarrukaatu Ayyamil Urs, the second Urus of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’s RA, we are pleased to present the following Nazaraat Entry prepared by Shz Dr Husain Bhaisaheb:

In the unmatched letter which he wrote with his own hand to Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin (TUS), Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA) inscribed several indications of Syedna Qutbuddin’s high destiny of becoming Dai. One of these was his signing the letter in this manner: “(From) Mohammed’s father, your father, who thinks of you in every moment, with utmost love and longing, Taher Saifuddin.” Upon reading this letter, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (RA) recited the Qur’anic ayat “khitamuhu misk” (Surat al-Mutaffifeen, Ayat 26), which means “It is sealed with musk.” 

Syedna Taher Saifuddin normally referred to himself in his correspondence as “Mohammed’s father”. In this letter, he used the unique expression “Mohammed’s father, your father”, thereby indicating the special status of these two sons near him. This special status was frequently highlighted by Syedna Burhanuddin during his lifetime, most notably at the time of performing nass on Syedna Qutbuddin, and also at the very beginning of his ehed mubarak upon the wafaat of Syedna Taher Saifuddin (details in future nazaraat article inshaallah). 

May Allah give Afdal-ul-Jaza to both his Dais, our Waliyyun-Nemat, Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA and Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA. May their nazaraat from a’la illiyeen continue to flow towards their successor and waris Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS, and from him towards all mumineen, muminaat and their children. Ameen.
