- Majalis al Hikma
A thousand years ago, every Thursday, Syedna al-Mu’ayyad al-Shirazi RA answered the questions of his time in the Majalis al Hikma (Wisdom Seminars). Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS will answer the questions of today, in today’s language in a weekly video series entitled 'Majalis al-Hikma', to be published on the Fatemi Dawat YouTube channel in English, Dawat ni Zaban, and Arabic, and will be available as an audio podcast.
Syedna RA declared: The successor of the 51st Dai and 52nd Dai is amongst you, and on this day of Aashura, keeping Allah Ta’ala as my witness, keeping Imam Husain AS as my witness, and keeping Imam-uz-zaman AS as my witness, with the Qur’an Majeed in my hand – the Qur’an from which my bawajisaheb has prayed, that is with me, keeping that Qur’an in hand I declare to you that the 53rd Dai – the servant of Imam-uz-zaman – is Khuzaima Qutbuddin.

The Truth is expounded upon in Syedna’s Qutbuddin's RA Qasida in two parts: the knowledge of Divine Truths (Haqiqat nu ‘ilm) and Syedna’s assertion of his position, the Dai of Imam-uz-Zaman. Click here to read further.
In the midst of the hurricane of events that we are going through, Syedna Qutbuddin TUS began composing his first Risalah Ramadaniyyah. The Risalah is titled ‘Barakaatu ‘irthi-du’aat’, (بركاتُ إرثِ الدُّعاة)– the Barakaat of the Heritage of the Du’aat. The numerical value of the title is 1435H (just as Bismillah is 786 and Ali is 110). Syedna explained that the word irth means wiraasat or heritage. In the Arabic lexicon, irth is defined more particularly as the inheritance of knowledge, while wiraasat is defined as physical inheritance. Click here to read further.
Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA was a beacon of light. It is befitting that Syedna Qutbuddin’s roza, as Syedna Fakhruddin TUS said, “shines for the people of the sky as the stars shine for those on earth.” To contribute, please click here.

In this special 100th issue, we present an eBook of this hadith which during Ashara Mubaraka, Syedna Qutbuddin TUS narrated and explained. In the previous ten Sijill Articles we highlighted and explained each of the ten virtues of a Mumin in this world, and in this 100th Sijill we highlighted the ten virtues of the Hereafter. Syedna introduced the Hadith saying that this is a bishaarat for the Shi’a of Amirul Mumineen SA. He added that in one sense, those with true valaayat would necessarily have these virtues. If for some reason one with valaayat does not possess these virtues, then upon hearing this bayaan he/she should make a firm commitment to acquire them.
Rasulullah SA said, “he who is given the gift (rizq, rozi) of the valaayat of Ali has attained the goodness of this world and the Hereafter, and I do not doubt that he will enter Jannat.” Ali’s love and valaayatentail twenty virtues: 10 in this World (dunya) and 10 in the Hereafter (aakherat). The ten in this world are: 1) renouncing materialism (Sijill Article 90); 2) desire to seek knowledge (Sijill Article 91); 3) piety and scrupulosity (Sijill Article 92); 4) eagerness and desire for worship (Sijill Article 93); 5) sincere repentance (Sijill Article 94); 6) waking up in the night for tahajjud prayers (Sijill Article 95); 7) to put trust in God and not people (Sijill Article 96); 8) memorizing the Quran Majeed (Sijill Article 97); 9) aversion to this world (Sijill Article 98); and 10) generosity (Sijill Article 99). The ten virtues of the hereafter are described in the 100th Sijill Article above
