On Wednesday, 19 Jumaadi ul Ulaa 1438, 15-2-2017, Patel Industrial Estate was abuzz with the preparations in the morning and all mumineen there, were enthusiastic and eager to Welcome Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb (tus). In between the machine-power and man-power Aqaa Maulaa visited nearly 20 factories where mumineen are having Manufacturing unit in different items and goods. Aqaa Maulaa appreciated everyone’s work and skillfulness. He minutely observed the technicality and mechanical process through which an Item goes and lastly made into a Finished Product. It included Cupboards, Optical Frames, Kulfi Boards and Case, Hardware Items, Chemicals, Drum Boxes, Metal Ducts for Cooling, Paper Boxes, Electro-plating etc.
In each factory, Aqaa Maulaa bestowed mumineen with Ta’weez Frame of Rozi and Barakaat, Tabarrukaat and Kalemaat of Du’aa. Maulaa made a point to do specific Hidaayat to all factory owners where he visited. He said that, “O Mumineen! Your Skill is a great Treasure within you. Money is the Slave of Skill. Where Skill goes, Wealth follows. Allaah Ta’aala had created mumineen with Acumen, Skill and Nobility. One should be always cautious of Mumin’s cleverness. He never leaves an opportunity wherein he finds even a bit of return.”
|“There was a time when this Patel Estate had more than 80 Optical Factories of our mumineen and we were virtually ruling this sector. But because of internal feud, competition, diminishing demand and lack of vision in switching over to some other more sustainable manufacturing line or opting for advanced technology in the same field, the whole of optical line came to standstill and eventually majority of units faced a complete shutdown. Today, there are only 7-8 Optical units in a good shape of production. Now demand is high but Skill is missing.”
“O Mumineen! If you are handling your Ancestral Business or Factories, it is very much important for you to encourage your children to manage, develop and diversify your own business and take it to achieve new goals and scale new heights. Their learning and studies should be related to your business in order to make it more marketable and cost-effective. Youth is going towards easy money and cool jobs. As business always involves risk and uncertainty in getting quick returns, educated lot is finding it difficult to handle. But we have to give our skill to our children as a Great Treasure. Cultivate it and you will find the Field of High Returns.”
In Shehaabi Masjid, Maulaa did Imaamat of Zohr-‘Asr and thereafter everybody took lunch in Maa’edah Aal-e-Mohammad (as). Before leaving, Maulaa did Du’aa and said that,
|“Create job for mumineen in your factories. Keep trust in mumineen and make yourself waseelah so that Allaah Ta’aala gives Rozi to mumineen through your factories.”
