The Qubba Mubaraka of Syedna Idris Imaduddin RA – Shibam - Photo Gallery

06 October 2014

19th Zil Qa’da was the Urus Mubarak of the 19th Dai al-Mutlaq Syedna Idris Imaduddin RA. Syedna Idris was an unmatched scholar who wrote numerous kitaabs which are a mine of knowledge in Da’wat’s library. These include Zahrul Ma’ani, Nuzhatul-Afkaar and the 6 volume history of Dawat from the time of Rasulullah SA until Syedna Idris’s age titled ‘Uyun-ul-Akhbar.

Syedna Idris resided in the fort of Shibam, a few miles from the Hutaib, where Syedna Hatim RA resided. Syedna Idris is said to have composed most of his writings near a spring-well in Shibam.

In 1431H Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA constructed and performed the Iftitah of the Qubbah Mubaraka of Syedna Idris in Shibam. Photos by Shz Dr Aziz Bhaisaheb of the beautiful Qubba mubaraka and the adjoining landscape have been uploaded on Fatemidawat.com.

Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS did araz of tehniyat and congratulations to Syedna Burhanuddin RA on this momentous occasion by composing a qasida. These are several verses from the qasida with translation:

يا دعِي العصر و إدريس الزمن

داعي هندٍ ثم سندٍ و يمن

برهانَ دين الله منصورَ اليمن

لطيب العصر الأمين المؤتمن

لقد بني اللداعيين قبتي

نور و علياء ومجدٍ وسكن

شان لنجل طاهرِ مدخرٌ

هناه هذا الافتتاح ذو المئن

Dai of our time, Idris of our age

The Dai of India, Sindh and Yemen

Syedna Burhanuddin, the victorious of Yemen (Mansooral Yemen)

The one entrusted by Imam Taiyyeb of our time

He made the Qubba Mubaraka of the two Dais (Syedna Hatim and Syedna Idris)

Qubas of noor, elevation, nobility, and solace

This feat was reserved for Syedna Burhanuddin, the son of Syedna Taher Saifuddin

May Allah Ta”ala- the God of all bounties- congratulate him on this achievement

Photos from the trip in which the Iftitah was performed have been uploaded here. They include photos of Syedna Burhanuddin RA performing the Iftitah waaz, photos of the Qubba mubaraka of Syedna Idris and aerial photos of Hutaib and other parts of Yemen.
