  • Glimpses – 10th Moharrum 1437 H

    Fasabeh Bi-Ism Rabbaika al-´Azeem

    -Then do the tasbeeh of your Lord the Almighty-

    Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA ensured that each Mumin would traverse the seas of this corporal realm to reach the shores of Jannat. In order to facilitate our passage he enjoined upon us to do the tasbeeh of Awliyaullah AS, especially that of Imam Husain AS. Along with its obvious meaning, tasbeeh also refers to treading water and staying afloat. Foretelling the position that Syedna Burhanuddin RA would hold in ensuring Mumineen were able to tread the waters of this life to the shores of the hereafter, al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA related the meanings of the aayat shareefah ‘then do the tasbeeh of your Lord, the Almighty’ in 1368 H in Mumbai. (Syedna al-Muqaddas RA himself was conducting the Ashara mawaa´iz in Ahmedabad that year.) Continue Reading

    ‘Fi Raqqin Manshoor’

    -In The Parchments Spread Open-

    Awliyaullah AS, and today the Dai Mutlaq, al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS are manifestations of the word of Allah. Their words and deeds reveal for the believers the meanings of the Quran. Over the course of time there have been a total of 104 divine revelations. 50 were revealed to Nabi Adam AS, 30 to Idris Nabi AS, and 20 to Ibrahim Nabi AS. Dawoodi Nabi AS was bestowed the Zabur, Moosa Nabi AS the Torah, Eesaa Nabi AS the Injeel (Bible) and to Nabi Mohammed AS the Furqan, or Quran, was revealed. In order to convey the meanings embodied in these divine revelations, the Aimmat Tahereen AS themselves composed a number of kutub and directed their Duat to do so as well. As they prepared for their satr, and in the face of constant threats to their physical texts, the Aimmat Tahereen AS ensured that all this knowledge was preserved in the hearts of their Duat Mutlaqeen AS.

    Inna Aatainaaka al-Kauthar…’

    Indeed we have bestowed you with al-Kauthar…-

    Over the last six days, al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS expounded upon the various aayaat shareefah that al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA has related to Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA. Today, benefiting from the zikr done by Syedna al-Dai al-Ajal TUS of his naas, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA, with a guided perspective and with renewed energy we saw these meanings personified. The conviction offered by ´ilm was further reinforced with the conviction gained from observing. We saw Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA for the brilliant star he was, and sipped from the rivers of honey through his deedar mubarak and listening to his sweet words and counsels. The waaz mubarak of which we saw the recording today was delivered on the 8th of Moharrum al-Haraam, 1429 H in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Continue Reading

    ‘Al-Misbah Fi Zujaajah. Al-Zujaajat Kannahaa Kaukab Durri’

    The Lantern is in A Glass, The Glass is Like a Brilliant Star

     Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA was the transparent, clear glass through which we saw the lantern of eternal knowledge. Awliyaullah AS, divine light personified, have guided Mumineen towards the hereafter. Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS, stated that they encourage us to contemplate the various aspects of this world and the next. A person’s outlook, understanding and predisposition is determined by the clarity in them – clarity of thought, love and purpose and this was illustrated by examples from Awliyaullah’s conduct as well as the ideals a Mumin should follow in his day to day life.

  • Glimpses – 5th Moharrum 1437 H

    ‘Wa-l-Naashetaate Nashta’

    Today’s waaz mubarak was filled with divine nashaat, an energy that vitalized us all. The energy with which al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS empowers a Mumin has its source in the bukaa’ and maatam upon Imam Husain AS. This remarkable form of everlasting energy, despite being in the form of grief and lament, leads to temporal, spiritual and eternal happiness and contentment. Hence, over 50 years al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA would repeatedly pray that ‘May Allah keep Mumineen happy and prosperous, and show them no grief but that of Imam Husain AS.

    The majesty of this aayat shareefah from Surat Al-Rahman was apparent for all in today’s waaz mubarak. Its greatness and glory personified in the persona of al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA, to whom al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Taher Saifuddin referenced this aayat shareefah twice, once in 1366 H in Mumbai and then in 1372 H when Syedna Burhanuddin RA was delivering waaz mubarak in Mumbai.

    ‘Wa Anhaar min ´Asal Musaffa’

    -And Rivers of Pure Honey-

    In the previous waaz mubarak, al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS reminded us of our identity and our return to the pure and serene world we left. Return to such a pure state requires us to purify ourselves with the rivers of jannat. Four types of rivers flow in jannat, one of water that is ever fresh, another of milk that never spoils, one of wine that does not intoxicate and another of honey that is pure and clear.
