Mazoon ud-Da'wat Saiyedi Haatim Zakiyuddin Saheb (DM) delivering bayaan mubaarak in the shaan of Muqaddas Maula in Bustaan us-Sawaab.

Zindagi teri naseehat hai ya Ziyauddin,

Tera darbaar bhi jannat hai ya Ziyauddin,
Ahmedaabaad se is shehr me teri Hijrat,
Qaum-e-‘Alavi pe inaayat hai ya Ziyauddin.

Maazoon Saheb (DM) addressed the mumineen in the majlis of Shab-e-‘Urs (Behram) of Saiyedna Ziyauddin Saheb (QR) and asserted that Da'wat is eternal and endless ( abadi-azali ). When Allah first created the intellects ( ‘aql ), the first among them pondered about the creation of self and other intellects and accepted the Supreme authority of Allah, His Da'wat (invitation) and submitted to His divine mission. This Da'wat began when Adam-e-Kulli (the complete or first Adam) was created on the island which was a part of India , now known as Sri Lanka . Then from here he settled in Hijaaz where he met Maulatana Hawwa (AS) and that place came to be known popularly as ‘Arafah. This spiritual Da'wat will continue till the day of Qiyaamat in India.

After returning from the farewell Hajj, Rasulullah (SAWS) addressed the Hajjaaj and proclaimed the importance of Hajr ul-Aswad and turned his face to the land of India and he offered a special supplication for the community. He said, “O ye people, you have seen me so you are obedient to me, but look at the community of India , they will neither see me, nor my wasi (successor), nor my Imaam, but they will be blessed with my faith and will accept my mission.”

Rasulullah (SAWS) said to the Hajjaaj that before the creation of material world like earth, Allah Ta'aala took the covenant or misaaq of all the angels, Prophets and the descendants of Hazrat Adam (AS) and Hajr ul-Aswad was kept as a witness to that. Hajr ul-Aswad possessed the tongue and hands at that time. Allah Ta'aala then secured the saheefah of covenant of all of them in Hajr ul-Aswad. When Adam (AS) was created and sent on this earth, he first built the Ka'bah. Then Jibra'eel (AS) descended and placed the Hajr ul-Aswad in the corner of Ka'bah and it was made obligatory to osculate it after the completion of every circumambulation, failure of which shall make the whole circumambulation void. Osculating Hajr ul-Aswad is just like giving covenant to it. It will bear the witness to all who have given covenant to it till the Day of Judgement. On the day of Qiyaamat, Allah Ta'aala will again enliven the Hajr-ul-Aswad and grant speech to it. It will then say who has given covenant and who has not. All the rituals and prayers offered by the people at the time of Hajj will be rendered useless if they have failed to osculate the Hajr ul-Aswad. In the same way before performing Hajj, if someone fails to give covenant to his Imaam uz-Zamaan or Da'i uz-Zamaan his Hajj becomes completely void, as this covenant is offered to Hajr ul-Aswad while circumambulating the Ka'bah. Ka'bah symbolizes Imaam uz-Zamaan and Hajr ul-Aswad is deemed as the hand of Imaam.

Seven circumambulations of Ka'bah complete one tawaaf. The figure seven signifies the seven ranks or orders which are Nabi (prophet), Wasi (deputy after prophet), Imaam, Baab, Hujjat, Da'i-e-Balaagh and Da'i-e-Mutlaq. The figure seven also symbolizes the act of osculating from the forehead to the lips while reciting Bismillah in which the seven openings or apertures are covered; two eyes, two ears, two nostrils and one mouth. If one fails to recognize the importance and value of these seven ranks then he does not even deserve to recite Bismillah; his deeds and prayers are too far to be valid. The figure seven also designates the walking between the Safaa and Marwaa which is again done seven times. Also throwing the stones in the consecutive order of seven at the shaitaan comes in the domain of the importance of figure seven.



Fi Madh-e-Saiyedna Ziyauddin Saheb (QR)

Sath-e-hasti pa numaaya hai haqeeqat teri,

  Hai abhi yaad zamaane ko woh hijrat teri.
Tu ne kis shaan se chora hai watan ko tere,

Waqt ne waqt ko batlaaii hai ‘azmat teri.

  Gardish-e-waqt bhi darti thi iraado se tere,
  Dushman-e-deen ko larzaati thi jur'at teri.
Tu ne Masjid ko banaaya tha teri daulat se,
Kaun bhulega ye lillaah sakhaawat teri.
  Tere dar ka hai gadaa Taalib-e-du'a Haatim,

Fakhr karta hai bayaan karke ye midhat teri.
