In 1985, 44th Da’i e Mutlaq Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin Saheb (ra) laid the foundation of Gulistaan Apartments in after which Mumineen started purchasing plots and flats at Ajwa Road. Mumineen gradually started settling at Ajwa Road because of Masjid, Madrasah and Jamaa’at-khaana and now there are almost 2300 mumineen residing there on both sides of the road. Along with the residential requirements, need of Manufacturing Units also rose which gave boost to businesses in nearby areas and mumineen preferred starting their manufacturing ventures in Sardar Industrial Estate. At that time, mumineen were mainly indulged in the Optical and Tin industries which saw several ups and downs in the recent times forcing them to opt for ventures in new fields.
al-Maulaa al-Muqaddas Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin Saheb (ra) used to do Padhraamni-visit in the factories of mumineen during the time of Diwali which, then, marked beginning of the new financial year. Following his footsteps last week between 16-20 March 2017, 18-22 Jumaadi ul-Ukhraa 1438, on Thursday, Saturday and Monday, Aqaa Maulaa visited 59 factories and manufacturing units of Sardar Industrial Estate doing production in varied and monopoly items. Mumineen were very enthusiastic and energetic in explaining each and every aspect of manufacturing process in their factories. Aqaa Maulaa personally roamed around the machines while workers were showing the stages through which raw material passes to get finished product. Aqaa Maulaa did the Khusoosi Du’aa for Barakat and blessed the mumineen with Ta’weez of Kifaayat.
All these 3 days right from 9:30 am till 1:30 pm mumineen waited eagerly for their turn as they for the first time experienced spiritual touch in their work place. Aqaa Maulaa said that,
|“Your business is mine and your prosperity is the prosperity of the community. Working with harmony and brotherhood is the key for Success in the business. Going on the right path and taking right decision on the right time is the way of getting right gains.”
