By the barakaat and bashaaraat of the Urs Mubaarak of Saiyedat-o-Nisaa il-'Aalameen Maulaatona Faatemah az-Zahraa (as), Aqaa Maulaa bestowed sharaf of Majlis-e-Faatemi, Didaar and Qadam-bosi to Mumbai Mumineen. During his 3 days visit 10-11-12 Jumaadi ul-Ulaa, AqaaMaulaa the residences of different mumineen in Mazgaon, Kharghar and Thane. Majaalis were held and Aqaa Maulaa did khusoosi du'aa for ahl e khaana, the people of the house. Maulaa said that,
"The best of the place for you is that when you enter your home, your body and mind should be at peace. This is the world of annihilation and people think it as their place of permanent stay. To compete with others and to showcase their wealth people build and purchase houses more than their need. No, don't do that. It's the sign of greed. A simple and peaceful house reflects your piousness and it should be graced by the Du'aa of your Da'i. A house could only be called a true home when people in it pray and do efforts for a better abode in the Hereafter than in this world."
The 1428th Urs of Maa Faatemah was marked with memorable moments. At Zenith Hall, the majlis started at 11 before Zohr. The event of the Shahaadat of Saiyedna Ali saheb was presented with deep fervour and heartfelt words. Zaakireen recited qaseedah, kalaam and marsiyah of Maa Faatemah. In his speech Aqaa Maulaa said that, "In the five lettered word of "Faatemah", you will see the Jalwah and Noor of Panjatan e Paak and she is indeed the Mother of his Father and all Ambiyaa. In her progeny is the succession of Imaams and will continue till the last day when Maulaana Qaa'im will establish justice from the 'Arsh. The dignity and respect of women is only because the Chaadar and Pardah of Maa Faatemah. When Rasoolullaah (saws) asked Maulaana Ali (as) that, when does a woman comes closer to the Rahmat of her Rabb? Maulaana Ali (as) was unable to answer it. Then with the instruction of Maa Faatemah (as), Maulaana Ali (as) replied to Rasoolullaah (saws) that, when a woman corner herself for Ibaadat in a room of her house where no one sees her is the time when she is too close to her Rabb's Rahmat."
During the bayaan, Aqaa Maulaa called all those children who are taking Deeni Ta'leem and made them sit in the Mehfil. They listened the bayaan carefully. Aqaa Maulaanamed the madrasah that is run by the zawjah of Miyasaheb Ilyaasbhai as "Madrasah Haatemiyah". All children were gifted Qur'an e Kareem. Mumineen offered Zohr-Asr namaaz with the Imaamat of Aqaa Maulaa. After taking lunch, Aqaa Maulaa called upon all young girls with their mothers who are either studying or doing job. Aqaa Maulaa interacted with them in a very cordial manner. Aqaa Maulaa stressed on the point of girls doing job at the cost of their marriage and family relations. Family planning and delayed child-bearing is related to job-oriented studies and its ill effect is less children. Girls are opting for higher education and this is the reason of not getting engaged with the prospective educated boys on right time. This delay to some extent results in girls getting indulged in out-caste marriage. Alavi mumin should only opt for Alavi muminah. To increase the Alavi population is the responsibility and prime concern of our educated younger generation. Saheb e Da'wat answered some of the queries posed by the gathering.
Qissah of Maulaatona Faatemah Zahraa (as): Finger Ring, Night Prayer and the Leg of Jannati Bed
Maulaatona Faatemah az-Zahraa (as) is in the centre of al-Khamsat ul-Athar Panjatan-e-Paak (as), where her father Rasoolullaah (saws) and her husband Maulaana ‘Ali (as) is above her darajah and her sons Imaam Hasan (as) and Imaam Husain (as) is below her maqaam. She is the soul of the Household of Rasoolullaah (saws) by whom the Noor of Ahl ul-Bayt (as) will remain always in the form of Imaam till the Day of Judgement. Allaah Ta’aala created the Noor of Faatemah before the creation of Jannat, Jahannum, Zameen, Aasmaan, Loh and Qalam. There are 5 letters of the name of Faatemah which is from the name “Faatir” of Allaah. The middle letter is “TOI” which is the “TOI” of Taiyeb and Taahir. We are the mumineen who do the Tasbeeh of Maa Faatemah five times a day, our hearts are filled with her ma’refat and fazeelat and we believe her waseelah to be the holiest and mubaarak. That is the reason we are called Taiyebeen and Taahireen, the purest people on this earth. We are Faatemi Mumineen and we are in the Jannat of Faatemi Da’wat whose keeper and guardian is our 44th Faatemi Da’i Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb (tus). Maa Faatemah was the result of Jannati Tuffaah (apple) and her Du’aat in every time emanates the fragrance and freshness of that Tuffaah by Fayz and Rahmat.
In Aakherat Allaah Ta’aala has made four streams for the khidmat of Maa Faatemah, Salsabeel, Tasneem, Zanjabeel and ‘Asl-e-Musaffaa (honey). Her mother Maulaatona Khadeejah al-Kubraa (as) used to address her as “Taaherah” (pure) and “Maymoonah” (fortunate) when she was still in the Shikam-e-Athar (womb). She used to talk with her mother and give her solace during the days of hardships and torment vented by the women of Quraysh. Allaah Ta’aala ordered His Angels to call her “Mansoorah” (victorious) in the Heavens in Nooraaniyat.
We call Maulaatona Faatemah as our Mother “Maa”, while her father Rasoolullaah (saws) said that, “O Faatemah! You are the Mother of your Father.” Also she is the Maa and Head of Women of all time and ages. She is the Mother of all mothers. There is no other woman than M. Faatemah to whom we associate the special attribute of “Maa”. She will be present in Mahshar to grant Shafaa’at to her ruhaani and nooraani children who are her devout mumineen in this world and Aakherat.
Salaam: Marqad-o-Mehshar ka Ghamm ho kisliye aye Mumino,
Bakhashwayegi Gunaaho ko Hamaare Faatemah.
Fazeelat: Every room has 4 walls and is lightened to make it the place of peaceful stay. Likewise in Panjatan-e-Paak (as) there are 4 ashaab and this ruhaani and jannati Ghurfah-room is lightened by the Noor of M. Faatemah Zahraa (as), this noor is the Ruh of Panjatan-e-Paak (as). M. Faatemah Zahraa (as) is the affectionate mother of her Shi’ah Kholasaa and she protects them from all Duniyaawi Aafaat-o-Balaa. Muminaat should follow the aadaab of Faatemi Majlis by wearing Ridaa as per the azmat of Chaadar-e-Faatemah. Muminaat should attend only those majlis which has been given permission by Da’wat-e-Haadiyah. The place is an idol-house where people gather without the Zikr of Imaam uz-Zamaan (as) and Da’i uz-Zamaan (tus).
Waaqe'ah: Ayesha enters into the room of Maulaatona Faatemah (as) when she was busy making “Hareero” for Imaam Husain (as). Bayaan of Rasoolullaah (saws) from the mimbar revealing the fazeelat of Maulaatona Faatemah (as) and warning those who make dirty plans in hiding her merits.
Clip 1:Maulaatona Faatemah Zahraa (as) gave mumineen of Ummat-e-Mohammadiyah an Ideal life and Spiritual purity. In her darajah, the oneness of Allaah Ta’aala is enshrined and she bestowed upon the believers of Ahl ul-Bayt (as) five unparallel things namely 1) ‘Ibaadat (devotion) 2) Tatheer (purity) 3) Tazweej (marriage) 4) Tasbeeh (supplication) and 5) Ridaa (cloak).
Clip 2:Rasoolullaah (saws) gifted to his beloved daughter M. Faatemah a Tasbeeh instead of a maid servant and we Shi’a always recite this Tasbeeh-e- Faatemah. It surely denotes the chain of Faatemi Imaams till Maulaana Qaa’im ul-Qeyaamah in the progeny of Maulaatona Faatemah Zahraa (as). She was “Munesah” – living with utmost care and compassion, in the household of Maulaana ‘Ali (as).
Clip 3:The Marriage (Tazweej) of Maulaatona Faatemah Zahraa (as) with Ameer ul-Mumineen Maulaana ‘Ali (as) is unparallel in the Islaamic History which took place in Madinah in the presence of the last Prophet of Allaah Rasoolullaah (saws). We should be grateful to our Du’aat-e-Keraam (aq) who have made the Rusoomaat of Nikaah simple and spiritual.
