Aid from Allah, and victory are near
(Surat al-Saff: 13)
This article was written by Shehzada Dr Abdeali Bhaisaheb Saifuddin in 2017.
When Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA passed away, waves of fitnat crashed upon the ship of Dawat as the usurpers grabbed control of the Dawat infrastructure. Syedna Qutbuddin RA, the lion of Imam-uz-Zaman, defended the ship of Dawat, and not only ensured its survival, but set a path for ever-lasting victory. Then in the middle of the battle, this Champion of our Imam, Syedna Qutbuddin, passed away.
Syedna Fakhruddin TUS, with steely resolve and steadfastness, carried on higher and further. The enemies of Dawat could only but watch, amazed and astonished. Syedna Taher Fakhruddin - a lion, and the son of a lion – took the fight to them. Syedna Fakhruddin challenged Shehzada Mufaddal Saifuddin to an open debate. No answer. They do not dare face him.
Syedna Fakhruddin filed to continue Syedna Qutbuddin’s succession case. In the High Court of Bombay, Syedna Fakhruddin won. Syedna Fakhruddin was given an overwhelmingly positive judgment on the Chamber Summons application he had filed, which allowed Syedna Fakhruddin to continue the suit filed by Syedna Qutbuddin.
Syedna Fakhruddin’s bayaans and waaz are relayed worldwide and watched by thousands online. Syedna Fakhruddin’s interviews, guidance, forward vision for the community are published nationally and talked about in every local town. On the other hand, the approach of the opposition is to limit the spread of information and crackdown on people that do (especially through WhatsApp and social media).
They will not realize, until the ground is pulled out from under their feet that they have already lost. They have lost the battle of knowledge, they have lost the battle of vision, they have lost the battle of love.
Our Aqa, our Maula, the 54th Dai al-Mutlaq in the chain of Duat Mutlaqeen, the leader of the Dawoodi Bohra community, has won. He is the true inheritor of the knowledge of the Imams and Du’aat; he is the true visionary who provides solutions for the community’s problems; he is the Dai who presides on the throne of rehmat and love.
Khuda Ta’ala says in the Quran, “Aid from Allah, and victory are near” (Nasrun minallahi wa fathun qareeb). Full and final victory, fath-e-mubin, will come soon insha'allah. Syedna Taher Fakhruddin Zindabad.
