وَكَانَتِ الحِكْمَةُ تَنْطِقُ عَلَى لِسَانِهِ

“Wisdom speaks upon his tongue”

This was the phrase used to describe Amirul Mumineen Maulana Ali AS by his companion Diraar b. Damrah. Our Mawali Tahireen possess divine wisdom and knowledge that is safeguarded and propagated through the uninterrupted succession of Imam after Imam, and in his seclusion, Dai after Dai.

Today, our beloved Aqa Maula Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS is heir to the knowledge and wisdom of our Mawali Tahireen. He expounds true philosophy and knowledge in his waaz sermons, as well as his weekly ‘Wisdom seminars’ (Majalis al Hikma) in Dawat ni Zaban, English, and Arabic. In these Majalis he declared: “Today your Dai is Taher Fakhruddin, I am the keeper of the Imam’s knowledge. I have taken barakaat of this knowledge from Syedna Burhanuddin, the 52nd Dai, and my mufeed, my father, the 53rd Dai Syedna Qutbuddin. Ingrained in my heart are the true doctrines of the Imam’s knowledge.” 

Wisdom speaks upon his tongue; he guides Mumineen towards living a purposeful, pure, and virtuous life whilst gathering provision for the eternal Hereafter. He addresses Mumineen with sincere care, advising them with wisdom and good counsel. He says affectionately: “I give you sincere counsel, always, and pray that my words find a place in your hearts.”

This is a humble effort to present 56 English quotes and sayings from the vast treasure trove of Syedna Taher Fakhruddin’s TUS sermons and discourses on the auspicious occasion of his 56th Milad Mubarak. 

May Allah Ta’ala preserve Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS until the Day of Judgement.  May we listen to his wisdom-filled words with our hearts so that they shape our words and deeds.
