- 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.

The 15th of Zilqada is the Urus of great 45th Dai al-Mutlaq, Syedna Tayyeb Zainuddin – Surat.
After Syedi AbdulQadir Hakimuddin, the brother and Mansoos of the 43rd Dai Syedna Abdeali Saifuddin, passed away in his lifetime, detractors and enemies of Dawat scoffed “who will he (the 43rd Dai) appoint now?”. Syedna Abdeali Saifuddin, replied in one of his poems “I will do what my maula Imamuz-zaman inspires me to do”. Soon after, he called the two sons of Syedi Jivanjee from Burhanpur and personally began their tarbiyat and education. The two sons, Syedna Mohammed Izzuddin (the younger brother) and Syedna Tayyeb Zainuddin (the elder brother), became the 44th and 45th Dai. A testament to the fact that the chain of Du’at will continue and that the light of Allah will never be extinguished.
On the occasion of Urus we are pleased to present this biographical article on Syedna Tayyeb Zainuddin RA. The article is written by Shz. Dr. Bazat Saifiyah baisaheba who researched and wrote her PhD thesis at Oxford University on the history of the Du’aat Mutlaqeen in Yemen and has extensively studied the history of Du’aat Mutlaqeen in India.
