- 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.

On the occasion of the Urus Mubaraka of Syedna Hatim Mohyuddin RA, we are pleased to present a brief history of this great Dai as part of our Biography and History Series.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“Each and every mumin knows the name of Syedna Hatim; he/she may not know the names of other Dais, but he/she knows Syedna Hatim. Every mumin must have attended a Darees of Syedna Hatim, often called ‘Hatim ul-Khayraat’, and sought his vaseela especially for barakat in rozi. Syedna Hatim’s tomb in al-Hutayb (in the mountainous Haraz region of Yemen) is a passionately sought place of pilgrimage and is frequently visited by mumeneen today, from all over Yemen, from India, and from other places all over the world. Syedna Hatim had a long 39-year eventful and celebrated reign as Dai. For the people of Yemen and especially Haraz, their faith in the Tayyibi Dawat and the mohabbat of the Dai entrenched in their hearts is a legacy primarily of Syedna Hatim, whose presence is very much alive among them to this day.”
