Misaaq – A Covenant with Allah Ta’ala

29 April 2017

Misaaq (or ‘ahd) means covenant or promise; a promise that establishes a commitment between God and each Mumin. Bay’at or safaqat (literally hand-in-hand) is the final pledge and commitment by a Mumin to the Misaaq. It is not a “new” custom but as old as the father of humanity, Adam Nabi AS, as the Quran Majeed affirms (Surat Taha: 115). This practice has continued since with each successive Nabi, Imam and Da’i. The kitaabs of Syedna al-Qadi al-Nu’man and Syedna al-Mu’ayyad confirm that the tradition of Misaaq continued in the time of Fatemi Imams. The same Misaaq was continued by the Du’aat Mutlaqeen in Yemen and thereafter in India.
