URS-E-MAYMOON - Saiyedna Ziyauddin Jivabhai bin Saiyedi Nuhji Saheb (QR) - Baroda

Allaah Ta’aala has created human-beings above all other creatures making him “ashraf ul-makhluqaat” – the best of all creations, by bestowing him with intellect and power of reasoning.  He tames and controls everyone but to tame him Allaah has sent Nabi or Rasool who is like him with the exclusive characteristic of granting Shafaa’at-advocacy for the forgiveness.

Qabr is the way towards Aakherat and it is the abode for Accounts of deeds.  Every mumin who dies is Shaheed and his death is physical not spiritual.  Da’iyullaah who is the head and master of mumineen is the witness of all their deeds and he is the majma’-union and meeting place of their souls where Da'i makes them ascend towards the holiest place of Imaam uz-Zamaan (as).  The qabr-e-aqdas i.e. holy grave of a Da'i is the place of Noor, Rahmat and Shafaa’at.

It is the big mistake for a mumin if he assigns a tag of ‘wali’ to any person who is famous among people for his piousness or devotion.  ‘Wali’ is the one with whom ‘walaayat’ is attached and he is granted the complete authority of Shari’at.  Walaayat is the spiritual guardianship held by a single person from Aal-e-Mohammad (sa) physically present in all times as an Imaam or his representative.  He is called “Maulaa”.

  1431: Qaseedah Mubaarakah
  Bayaan of 300th Urs Mubaarak
Mazoon ud-Da'wat Saiyedi Haatim Zakiyuddin Saheb (DM) doing chadar and ghilaaf-poshi on the Qabr-e-Anwar of Muqaddas Maula in Bustaan us-Sawaab
  Madeh-Khwaani & Kalaam in shaan of Muqaddas Maulaa

Following are the Nikaat-e-Mufeedah (important points) which Mazoon ud-Da'wat mentioned in the Bayaan of Shab-e-‘Urs of Muqaddas Maulaa:

•  28th Da'i ul-Mutlaq Saiyedna Shaikh Aadam Safiyuddin saheb and Shaheed-e-Aazam 29th Da'i ul-Mutlaq Saiyedna Ali Shamsuddin bin Ibrahim (qr), who were born in Vadodara used to visit the city frequently to meet the aqaarib (relatives). They resided in a locality in the walled city area near Mandvi which is now called as “Fakhri Mohalla”.

•  Our mumineen used to live near the Fakhri Masjid of Saiyedi Musanji Taaj saheb (ra) which was constructed by the Razaa Mubaarak of Saiyedna Dawoodji bin Ajabshah (qr). During the time of Saiyedna Badruddin Hasan bin Wali (qr), the aamil of Vadodara carried out the ruhaani umoor of mumineen and headed the imaamat in namaaz in this historic masjid.

•  In order to safeguard the mumineen and protect the jamaa'at from the deadly and fearful attacks from Sunnis and disloyal Bohras of Taiyebji's faction, Saiyedna Badruddin Hasan bin Wali (qr) spent the last 19 years of his life in an underground shelter. During this time he instructed and did wasiyat to Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb (qr) to migrate and make Vadodara as “Daar ul-Hijrat” i.e. the centre of Da'wat Haadiyah.

•  Saiyedi Nuhji, the father of Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb played a pivotal role in supporting the cause of truthfulness and became the backbone in elevating the confidence among mumineen in Ahmedabad and Vadodara who were facing constant threat from the enemies of Ahlul Bayt (as). He was among the hudood of Saiyedna Badruddin Hasan bin Wali (qr). To avenge the martyrdom of Saiyedna Ali (qr), Saiyedna Badruddin Hasan bin Wali (qr) initiated an elusive and strong movement against the culprits.

•  Following the wasiyat of Saiyedna Badruddin Hasan bin Wali (qr), Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb migrated to his hometown Vadodara in 1110 AH with 250 mumineen along with all belongings especially protecting the khazaanah of Da'wat which consisted of valuable manuscripts of Du'aat ul-Akrameen. Our Saiyedna took unimagnable pains to protect our community and migrated on bullock carts that took days and nights to reach Vadodara from Ahmedabad.

•  Mumineen of Vadodara gathered in the outskirts of the city to welcome and greet the cavalcade of Saiyedna Saheb. A person named Miya Mehmood was so impressed by the nobility and generosity of Saiyedna that he gifted a portion of his Wadi (land) to Saiyedna which we call as Badri Mohalla at present. The city of Vadodara was limited in a walled fort. The Wadi (land) of Miya Mehmood was situated in the ourskirts of the city surrounded by fruit orchards and charming gardens.

•  Allaah Ta'aala bestowed Saiyedi Nuhji saheb with an eternal ne'mat of his khidmat of Da'wat Haadiyah with 12 Du'aat Mutlaqeen in his nasl-e-paak of which Huzoor-e-‘Aali Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb (tus) also holds this distinction of the esteemed member of Aal-e-Nuhji. It is the barkat of our Du'aat that today we have prospered and flourished in Vadodara which is the burial place of our 11 Du'aat.
