Aqaa Maulaa said in his soul stirring address to his mumineen on the Independence Day that, “Who says that we are Outsiders and have come here few centuries ago? No, such people have mistaken our credentials, credibility and roots. We have roots in this pure land of Hunaydistaan (Hindustaan) since 7000 years as this is the Birth-place of the first Prophet of Humanity Maulaana Aadam (as). Our Da’wat originated from this land itself and here it will culminate. Every Nation has its Identity which can be judged by its Flag (Liwaa, Parcham). The Bearer of the Flag of our Deen was Maulaa ‘Ali (as)and it was white in colour symbolized by Qur’anic Verses. The Dignity and Divinity of our Imaams and Da’is either in Misr or Yaman was epitomized by the Flag of Peace and Integrity. It is a part of our Faith that, We should always love our Nation and its people. We should respect its Flag and Constitution. In order to live happily we should give peace to get peace. How beautiful our Nation would look when it is dressed with the fine Fabric of Unity! So, O my Countrymen, lets come together and live life unitedly.
On the mubaarak day of 307th ‘Urs-e-Maymoon of 32nd Da’i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Ziyauddin Jivabhai saheb (AQ) and 76th Milaad-e-Azhar of ad-Durrat ul-Bayzaa Umm ul-Mumineen Maa saahebah (dm), Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus) performed the Rusoomaat-e-Muneerah of Nisbat in Aywaan-e-Nooraani, behind Nooraani Masjid. 10th Zul Qa’adah 1437 will be remembered for years to come as Aqaa Maulaa did Rishteh-daari of his eldest son Shahzadah-e-Anbal, Saiyed ul-Ajall Saiyedi Sa’eed ul-Khayr Bhaisaheb with the Daughter of his Brother in-law, Saiyedah Nabeelah Sakinahbu.
The Bayt composed by Saiyedna Badruddin saheb (AQ), “Kaunayn mai Qaa’im rakhe Allaah ye Da’wat, Aye Noor-e-Ilaahi” was recited by Ra’s ul-Hudood saheb. Mukaasir Maulaa had composed a beautiful Nazm for this haseen occasion, “Hai Hum par Yaa Ilaahi teri Rahmat, 'Ali-o-Faatemah ki hai ‘Inaayat.” Aqaa Maulaa said in his Bayaan that, “We are doing Nisbat of our Farzand and Dukhtar by the waseelah of the Paak Nisbat of 'Ali-o-Faatemah (as). Heavens were decorated with their Anwaar. But with complete simplicity Rasoolullaah (saws) performed the same thing as per the Wahy in Madinah in 2nd Hijri by ‘Ali becoming the Taaj of Faatemah. May Allaah grant every easiness in getting muminah Dukhtar for every mumin Farzand. Alavi should always remain Alavi.”
It is the blessings and bounties on us that we have been granted and gifted with the Pure Knowledge and Unchanged Shari’at of Rasoolullaah (saws) and his Aal-e-Athar. Like Maa’edah-Jannati Thaal (Dastarkhwaan) in which we eat and take taste and benefit of different Ne’maat and offer Shukr to Allaah Ta’aala, we have been blessed with the innermost Hikmat and Ta’weel of Shari’at that our Du’aat taught us by the Razaa of A’immat Faatemiyeen (as). Our Du’aat had a direct access and dialogue with the Imaam, thus each and every line written in the books was in the knowledge of Imaam and his Hujjat. So there remained no question to prove it authenticity. We see the flow of water from the Mountain Peak till its last destination into the Sea, the same is the case with ‘Ilm, starting from the Imaam till the Mu’min. With us this course of ‘Ilm is evident but with others it is ambiguous. Due to the lack of the ta’eed of Imaam and his authority, people and their leaders have mistook the Shari’at for granted and a toy to toggle the mind-set. Spirituality and Originality have been veiled with the drapes of Materialism. To build a Sultanate and to favour their subject, Islamic rulers made their own halaal and haraam never bothering about the Farmaan of Shari’at. Our A’immat knew this, so during the time of Faatemi Hukumat in Cairo, they never brought sultanate or politics between the people and Shari’at. But Du’aat were highly trained to spread the true sense of Deen by making Ahl ul Bayt, the base of every walks of Mu’min’s life.
"Vadodara is a very safe city for women so many don't think it is necessary for them to learn self-defence techniques. But in the era of globalization, one has to move around a lot and people from outside too settle in our city. So it is important to know how to protect oneself. We are trying to reach out to as many Muslim women as possible." "Most of the women are now on social networking sites and use internet daily. It is important for them to know how to protect themselves in the cyber world. So we will organize another workshop focusing on cyber security for women." Zulkarnain told TOI.
The M D Self Defence Academy taught basic moves to the women at Taiyebi Hall on Ajwa Road on Sunday.
Maulaana Ali (AS) has said: ‘Among the deeds of man, prayer (Salaat) is the one that Allaah sees first. If this is sound, then Allaah will take into consideration his other deeds, but if this is not, none of the other deeds will be considered. He who abandons prayers (Salaat) has no share in the bounties of Islaam.'
Imaam Ja'far us-Saadiq (AS) has said: ‘Each and everything has a face (reason or purpose), and the face of your religion is prayer (Salaat).Except cognition (ma'refat) of Allaah, nothing that I know of is more excellent than prayer. The best of all your deeds is prayer.'

On the Mubaarak Occasion of the ‘Urs e Maymoon of 36th Da’i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Hameeduddin saheb (RA) on 26th Sha’baan 1437, around 100 Qare’een-e-Da’wat did Istiqbaal of Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (TUS) at Bustaan-e-Badri and offered Ziyaafat-e-Faakherah to commemorate the completion of Maulaa’s First Year on Masnad-e-Imaami. It was on 20th Sha’baan 1436 when Aqaa Maulaa ascended the Nooraani Throne of Da’wat e Haadiyah as the 45th Da’i ul Mutlaq appointed through Nass-e-Jali by his predecessor and Waalid-e-Giraami Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb (RA).
The words and Mafhoom of Sajadah, Sadaqah and ‘Uqbaa is related to the Ziyaarat of Saheb-e-Maqaam i.e. Da’i-e-Aal-e-Mohammad (sa). Farishta-Malaa’ikah bowed down in front of Nabiyullaah Aadam (as) as he was Saheb-e-Maqaam for whom Allaah Ta’aala made obligatory doing Sajadah for all beings and for the Saheb who is appointed by Nass in his place till the Day of Judgement. ‘Uqbaa is the ultimate place of return for the people who believe in the obedience of Saheb-e-Maqaam. The place of permanent dwelling and graced with unending bounties and raised to the sublime status in front of Awliyaaullaah.
Mumineen do remember that we are Alavis, therefore after every name we add the word “Bhai”, and because of Maulaa Ali’s wilaayat and imaan we are brothers and comrades. Where there is the concept of brotherhood, there exists the blessings of Jamaa’at-congregation (community). The congregation of Mumineen is the greatest blessing from Allaah Ta’aala. The most sanctimonious five (Panjatan-e- Paak) also have two brothers, our First and the Second Imaam Maulaana Hasan il Mujtabaa (as) and the chief of Martyrs Maulaana Husain (as).

Saiyedna saheb Aqaa Maulaa said in his Bayaan that, “The recitation of the text of this misaaq takes merely few minutes and you all say Na’am in between and we take Waseelah of our Maulaa Imaam Taiyeb ul-‘Asr wal Heen. But it takes lifetime dedication, sincerity, nobility, truthfulness, faith and obedience to keep promise given to the Da’i to follow the rules and regulations, halaal-o-haraam, ‘ibaadat-o-‘aamaal laid down by the Divine Law of Islaam revealed upon the Ambiyaa (as).

“Our daily Namaaz is the best example of exercise, concentration and balance. It’s the straight way to get connected with the world above you and this Spiritual power has a overwhelming effect both mentally and physically. You should do Shukr that you are healthy today, because sickness is bound to come. You should do Shukr that you are alive today, because death is always advancing towards you. This health and life is the best ne’mat of Khudaa Ta’aala.”
Mukaasir ud-Da’wat (dm) said in his speech that, “Today I feel that I am in UK as all of you speak English so nicely and confidently. I must say that the effort started by at-Taiyebaat today should continue and like this batch many of you should encourage others to take part in this type of educational activities and help in building positivity in our community. English is an International Language and everywhere you will have to face it. Make it the part of your routine as it has become the basic tool of communication. When I was in school studying in 6th Class Marhoom Mukaasir ud-Da’wat Saiyedi Dr. Husain Mo’eenuddin saheb (ra) inculcated in me the habit of reading Times of India newspaper and this has helped me immensely in making the base of English Language strong.

Maulaa said that, “A Mumin who do ziyaarat of these Du’aat are in the nooraani company of Malaa’ikat-Angels and and he himself becomes an angle gaining the shafaa’at of our Du’aat. The Door of this Rawzah is “Baab-e-Hittah”, meaning the door to Najaat because mumin completely safeguards his walaayat and ‘aqeedat towards his lifetime. The Rawzah of our Du’aat is the centre for Haajat-rawaai for all those who take Maulaa’s Waseelah.”
Shahzaada Bhaisaheb Sa’eed ul-Khayr joined them from Qumm and he is now leading the group. Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus) did Khusoosi Du’aa for the Kaamyaabi of the Safar and peaceful return to India with sehhat and ‘Aafeyat.

The Supremacy of the people of the family of Da’i is not based on its relationship with Da’i but on ikhlaas, khidmat, ‘ilm and taqwaa. The 6 sons of Saiyedna Fakhruddin saheb (aq) were all learned with the ‘Uloom of Da’wat-e-Shareefah like the sons of Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb (aq). They were Saiyedna Badruddin saheb, Bhaisaheb Ibraahim, Bhaisaheb Hameeduddin, Bhaisaheb Najmuddin, Bhaisaheb Abd ul-Husain and Bhaisaheb Husaamuddin.
Saiyedi saheb added that, “Rasoolullaah (saws) did naseehat to ahl-e-Islaam that Allaah Ta’aala has not decided the reward of these three things meaning it bears huge reward when done keeping in mind the importance of the service to Makhlooq-mankind. 1) Planting Trees for better environment, 2) Constructing Roads for better commuting and 3) Digging Wells for better household. If people follow this with sincerity and cooperation then there will remain no doubt that it will help in creating strong base for social and environmental benefit. Surely “PLANTS” stands for “Please Let A Nature To Survive” and “TREE” stands for “Treasure and Resource for Environmental Enrichment”.
The succession of the true and blessed Da'wat, which exists on the facade of the earth from the beginning of creation till the Day of Resurrection (Qayaamat) , continues to disengage us from the bodily confinement and personifies our deeds, abiding to the shari'at, and ascends us to the sanctity and sacredness through the path of salvation (najaat). The competent authority of Allaah (Hujjat) is always present on this globe below the skies, either publicly (zaahir) or in the veil (satar, baatin). Allaah Ta'aala says in the Qur'an that, ‘This practice (sunnat) has been continuing from timeless periods and there is no possibility of change or alteration in it; and in every era there is a fiend, infernal and hellish Satan (Shaitaan) against the divine and saintly authority of Allaah (Hujjat).'
