May Allah Ta’ala give Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’s RA Mansoos and 53rd Da’i al-Mutlaq, Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS longest life – Aameen. The following is the translation of the transcript of the bayaan.
“It is also the tradition – how many rutbahs are there in Dawat in the time of the seclusion [of the Imam] – the [acceptance] of that condition is always taken in the Oath.
3 rutbahs, the Dai al-Mutlaq and under his hands (i.e. under his authority) the Mazoon and the Mukasir – [acceptance of] this condition is taken in every oath. The Dai al-Mutlaq, he has itlaaq (absolute authority), under his hands (i.e. under his authority) are the Mazoon and Mukasir. So the Servant of the Progeny of Muhammad (i.e. the 52nd Dai), I am mu’ayyad, the Imam’s ta’yeed (inspiration and aid) is [flowing] towards me, [the Imam’s] blessings are flowing.
So, in the rutbah of Mazoon – with the divine inspiration of Allah and the divine inspiration of his waliyy (i.e. the Imam) – [I appoint my] radiant and noble brother, and [my] al-waladul ahabb (most beloved son), the one with manifest virtue (or excellence), the one with sound advice (or opinion or judgment), and one who is sincere in his obedience for the Dai of his age. The radiant and noble brother, who is [my] al-waladul ahabb (most beloved son), the one with manifest virtue (or excellence), the one with sound advice (or judgment or opinion), the one who practices sincerity in the obedience of the Dai of his age, the one whom ‘he’ loved very much, [‘he’] who? Maulana Taher Saifuddin loved this son very much, so the name of this son, the name that was the most beloved to him that name he [Maulana Taher Saifuddin] gave him, he name him Khuzaima, and gave him the laqab (title) Qutbuddin. [DISTURBANCE and break in Audio)
So the Servant of the Progeny of Muhammad, advise [my] al-waladul ahabb (most beloved son) Khuzaima Qutbuddin: you must continue to serve the Dawat with sincerity, just as Maulana Taher Saifuddin has taught you, in that manner until the end of your life continue to serve.
Similarly, I also advise all the hudood and all the mumineen, that they should continue to serve the Dawat with sincerity.
Now in the rutbah of Mukasir, in the rutbah of Mukasir Maulana Taher Saifuddin appointed [my] august uncle, the one who has attained virtues (or excellence), the one sincere in his walayat (belief in) the of his pure masters, the pride of all Mukasirs, Saleh bhaisaheb Safiuddin. In that same manner [I] the Servant of the Progeny of Muhammad maintain his appointment.
Similarly, all the hudood of Dawat Maulana Taher Saifuddin had appointed [I] the Servant of the Progeny of Muhammad by the divine inspiration of Allah and the divine inspiration of his waliyy (i.e. the Imam) maintain.”
