We always remember the calamity of Aashura. There is no grief like it. There is no sorrow like it. Especially as we approach Imam Husain’s SA Chehlum, we also remember those who survived Karbala and the calamities that befell them. Click here to read further.
Our lament for the martyrs of Karbala is unlike any other grief. Although innumerable tragedies and calamities have befallen since then, whether they are atrocities or natural disasters, at some point they are relegated to the annals of history. Not Karbala. Click here to read further.
The first ten days of Muharram (Ashara Mubaraka) commemorate the unparalleled sacrifice and commitment that Imam Husain AS, the grandson of the prophet Mohammad SA, and his family and close companions (numbering 72), demonstrated on the plains of Karbala, Iraq. Click here to read further.
Like prayer, fasting, and hajj, zakaat is one of the seven da’aim, or foundational pillars, of the Shari’at of Islam. Zakaat khuda no haqq chhe. For every Mumin, it is compulsory to offer zakaat once every year. Du’aat Kiraam have encouraged Mumineen to araz zakaat during the holy month of Ramadan, in order to gain abundant sawaab. For details on how to araz zakat, please click here.
Recognising the unique challenges of the time where Mumineen cannot always travel to be with Syedna Fakhruddin TUS personally, bethak via videoconferencing will be arranged on a weekly basis for Mumineen who wish to have an audience with Syedna TUS. For further details, click here.
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.

His word is the Truth
(Surat al-An’am: 73)
This article was written by Shehzada Dr Aziz bhaisaheb Qutbuddin in 2017.
When Yaqutatu Da’watil-Haqq Shehzadi Dr. Tahera Baisaheba was pursuing her PhD at Harvard University, one of her professors hosted Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA, and over the course of the lunch, he asked Syedna questions on many subjects, particularly Islamic history and Fatimid philosophy. Syedna Qutbuddin answered with confidence and with firm belief in the wealth of knowledge of Aal-e-Mohammed. The professor commented “You speak as if you have a patent on truth!” Syedna Qutbuddin did not apologize or qualify his previous answers. Instead he said, “Yes! If I do not believe my statements and answers to be the Truth then on what basis am I leading my life, on what basis am I guiding my followers? I have full conviction that what I believe is the Truth.” Moved by Syedna’s wisdom, the professor invited him to speak at the University, saying, “Just as I benefitted from your insights today, I want my students to benefit from your insights too.”
Syedna Qutbuddin’s confidence and conviction were exemplary. He was also a beacon of humility. Through his directions as well as his own actions, he taught us that we must respect other people and other beliefs. But he also taught us that doing so does not mean that we are in any way tenuous or insecure about our own beliefs.
The teachings and example of our Awliyaa’ Kiraam, especially Syedna Qutbuddin, inspire us to embrace our beliefs with confidence and conviction and to embrace others with respect and regard. In remembrance of these invaluable teachings, we are pleased to launch Taqreeb.org.
