Six Doctors for a Healthy and Fulfilling Life

In today's fast-paced world, the pursuit of health and fitness has become a cornerstone of modern living. Influencers on social media platforms ardently advocate for various forms of exercise, nutrition, and holistic wellness. It's a remarkable shift in awareness, often drawing comparisons to religious practices. Many express the sentiment that if only their religious teachings had been emphasized by their leaders then the world would have become a better place to live with manageable age-related ailments and reduced medical consultation.

Huzoor e ’Aali TUS graced the occasion and emphasized on the importance of Seeking Knowledge. Future of our Community is dependent upon the Education of our Youth.  It is the responsibility of the parents to look after the Deeni progress of their children.  Ustaaz sahebs of Madrasah will surely exercise their duty in imparting necessary ta’leem, but it is upon the parents to support Madrasah activities.  Parents should set the target to make their children aware of all the primary information of our Taiyebi Faith before their Bay’at e Imaam uz Zamaan AS.

al-Karbalaai and al-Hamdaani meets Huzoor-e-'Aali Saiyedna saheb (tus)
4 Safar 1445/20 Aug 2023

Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb TUS always reiterates in his bayaan that, "O Mumineen! Stick to your Roots.  Today, what we are is because of our holy roots of Da'wat e Haadiyah that nourishes us for spiritual progress and prepares us against all odds and difficulties.  Originally our tongue is Arabic.  Our books, our thoughts and our lifestyle is not something far from ancient Arab Culture.  Many have forgotten it but we have retained it and surely will make it more practicable and acceptable to our children of Digital Era.  Due to our preparedness and cohesive approach, world scholars are coming forward to study our community where Modernity meets Traditionality."

'Urs Mubaarak - Surat
35th Da'i ul-Mutlaq Saiyedna Nooruddin Noorbhai bin Saiyedi Shaikhali (QR)


Da'wat ul Haqq is the source of Nooraaniyat.  We got this Ne'mat because of Panjatan e Paak AS.  Imaam uz Zamaan AS and Da'i uz Zamaan TUS are part of this Noor.  Being Mu'min our every action is beautified with this Noor.  As name suggests, Saiyedna saheb AQ is the Maalik of 2 Noor.  One is for Duniyaa and the other is for Aakherat.  The magnetic Noor of Maulaa's Rawzah Mubaarakah attracts those knows the Nooraaniyat of Da'wat ul Haqq.

Moharram ul-Haraam 1445 AH

Happiness and Celebration often makes us forget the reality that it is because of pain, sorrow or grief we wait for the moments of merriment.  The cheerful and healthy life of a child is related to his first cry on his birth.  Likewise, the pain of this world will get rewarded with the success in Aakherat.  The celebration of our Hijri New Year 1445 is graced with the days of mourning-ma’tam of the Shahaadat of our 2nd Imaam Maulaana Husain AS.  The wailing of the Husaini Mu’min in these initial 10 days of Moharram will bear for him the eternal fruits of peace and progress in the rest of the year.  It is the best spiritual medicine for all the ailments and sickness for the entire year.

Let's Begin...

With the Ma'tam and Aah o Zaari on the Masaa'ib of our Maulaa Husain AS, these things should be kept in our mind.....

  1. Let's offer Namaaz regularly
  2. Let's give priority to Namaaz over Ma'tami Majlis
  3. Let's not make mourning or Ma'tam e Husaini a tool of show off and demonstration
  4. Let's not make the aupiciousness and dignity of Ma'tam e Husaini to be paraded on streets with unethical clothes
  5. Let's not make these Mubaarak days only to have niyaaz food, snacks or sharbet, but to remember the 'amal of Sabr o Shukr of Shohadaa e Karbalaa SA


Maulaana Imaam Husain AS: The Saviour of True Faith and the "Mohammad" of Karbalaa

The only hope of the pagan and uncultured world getting on the right track of civilized society was in Islam, but with Yazid on the usurped throne declaring disbelief in the bonafide apostleship of Mohammad Mustafaa SAWS and the Holy Qur'an being the revealed Word of Allaah Ta’aala, all hopes of the redemption of humanity from the abyss of material degradation and the lack of the truth about the real Creator of the Universe and the position and the commitment of man in it, were at stake.  On the hands of deceitful Yazid, the sanctity and Merits of Islam were going to be compromised and tainted with the fact that Maulaana Imaam Husain AS was holding the sublime responsibility of Imaamat in Madinah and Imaam was fully aware Yazid's venomous and malicious schemes against the spiritual authority of Ahl ul Bayt AS.

Imaam Husain was fully conscious of the heavenly objective of his very advent in the world being nothing but to meet this situation and to rescue Islam, Allaah's revealed faith and to elevate humankind to the glorious heights of the heavenly bliss. Husain knew the divine task of safeguarding the glory of Ahl ul Bayt AS assigned to him. He lived all these days in waiting for the hour to act as per his commitment to his grandfather. He also knew when to respond to the call from the people.

Cyber Crime - Awareness and Prevention Talk
18-6-2023/30 Zul Qa'adah 1444 AH

Mukaasir Maulaa said that, "With Social Media encroaching every personal spaces of our lives, there is an urgent need for all of us to be highly cautious and careful. Fame, greed, lust and opportunistic approach has captured our minds. This leads to fraud, scam, extortion and disloyalty. Every age-group is affected by this. Easy internet connectivity, habit of online shopping and banking, keeping trust on strangers and giving them important personal details add to this woe."

Allaah Ta'aala opened all doors of His rahmat, fazal and barakat in fulfilling every haajaat of His Mumineen who had left their Watan to become the Zaa'ir of His Wali and Hujjat.


Q&A - 32nd Da'i ul Mutlaq
Saiyedna Ziyauddin Jivabhai bin Saiyedi Nuhji saheb (QR)

Q11- Which thing makes mumineen remember the glory of Ziyaai Masjid?
A- It's wooden mehraab on which the year of migration 1110 AH is engraved and it contains the beginning verses of Surah Bani Israa'eel.  It is placed in Nooraani Masjid near the wall, where the area is marked for Majlis e Ma'tam.  Aqaa Maulaa TUS revealed its importance among mumineen on 19th Shahrullaah 1439 AH after its renovation.

Saiyedna Jivabhai Fakhruddin saheb (QR)

Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb TUS further said that, "In 1345 AH, several Mumineen from our Jamaa'at went to Karbalaa-Najaf from Khambhat via Karachi and Basra.  Fakhruddin Maulaa AQ wrote to the chief-khuddaam of Karbalaa to arrange lounging-boarding and other requirements for Alavi Jamaa'at Zaa'ereen.  When Mumineen returned safely they brought a reply which stated that, O Da'i saheb! We wholeheartedly invite you to Karbalaa.  May Allaah Ta'aala fulfill all your wishes and you witness the Noor of Rawzah Husainiyah at the earliest.  We would be pleased to have you here and take the barakaat for your Mumineen."

“This has not happened in the history of Da’wat before that so many members of my family are going together in one Qaafla” - Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS emphasized this fact in his Bayaan in the Wadaa Majlis of the Zaaereen which was held at Daar us Salaam on 29th Jumaad ul Ukhraa 1444, Saturday when all Zaaereen bid a farewell to Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS before embarking on the Ziyaarat Safar. He also encouraged Mumineen to select the tour operator from our community only because in such tours Saheb e Da’wat leads the Mumineen in all aspects of Ziyaarat, History, Namaaz and Bayaan. Ziyaarat without proper leader and guidance is incomplete.


Urs Mubaarak - 42nd Da'i ul Mutlaq
Saiyedna Badruddin Fidaali bin Saiyedna Fakhruddin saheb (QR)

Maulaa said that, "It is essential to treat all Mumineen with respect and kindness, as they are not helpless or downtrodden individuals. When you mistreat one Mu'min, you upset and insult all others associated with him. Similarly, if you do some misconduct against a Da'i, then you have waged a war against the entire Alavi Jamaa'at. Remember Da'i is the core of Mumineen of his time and he holds the Surat of his believers."


8th Urs Mubaarak
44th Da'i ul-Mutlaq Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin saheb AQ


Aqaa Maulaa TUS recollected those historic moments when al-Hayy al-Muqaddas Saiyedna Taiyeb Ziyauddin AQ did naseehat when Aqaa Maulaa TUS went for further studies in 1399 AH/1979 AD, while leaving for Mumbai from Devdi Mubaarak that, "O my Son! Remember Khuz Ma Safaa, Da' Ma Kadar, meaning Take what is Pure and Beneficial and Leave which is Wrong and Harmful.  You will have to meet people of different faiths, so be vigilant and choose the path of wisdom and goodness.  Maintain relations with everyone but do what your conscience says and what your intellect orders."

Kitaab ul Wasaaya  

Da'wat-e-Haadiyah Publication
Kitaab ul Wasaaya: The Book of Moral Teachings
Keeping secrecy is one of the main prerequisite of Imaamat

Imaam Ja'far us Saadiq SA addressed to some of his Shi'a and said, 'Keep our secret hidden and do not publicize it because, indeed, Allaah will honor him in this World and the Hereafter who keeps our secret hidden and doesn't divulge it.' Allaah will humiliate him in this World and the Hereafter who discloses our secret and He will take away the Light (Noor) from his eyes.

My father Imaam Mohammad ul Baaqir SA used to say, "Dissimulation (keeping one's beliefs and faith secret from undeserving people during the time of threat or fear) is my Religion and the Religion of my forefathers, and the one who doesn't practice Dissimulation has no Religion." Undoubtedly, Allaah wishes to be served in secret in the same way that he wants it to be in public. Secrecy is more desirable than publicity.  One who discloses our affairs is like him who disowns us.

Rajab ul Murajjab 1444

Rajab ul Murajjab is the seventh month of our Hijri Year coining the Merits of Ameer ul Mumineen Maulaana Ali AS.  Ka'batullaah il Haraam is the witness of our Maulaa's gracious birth in it.  This distinction of the Barakaat of the House of Allaah named as the brilliant Tents of Light, will never be achieved by anyone till Yaum e Qeyaamat except our Maulaa.  Those who haven't accepted our Maulaa, as their Maulaa, then the Reward of this month will not reach them.  We are ascended and elevated in every aspect as we are Alavi.  Alavi-the most celebrated, in the sense that we have understood the grit to face this torturous world and pave the way for beautiful Aakherat.

Hunaidi, Hindustani or Hindu? Part-3
Unveiling of distorted and unauthentic accounts of Isma’ili-‘Alavi history in Gujarat

During the era of Maulaana Aadam Safiyullaah and Maulaana Nooh Najiyullaah the vast Indian land did not have the evil custom of Makhlooq-parasti or the act of worshipping things created by Allaah Ta'aala. Intelligent and wise people were residing on this land who were knowing the demarcating line between the Creator and the Creation. Many folks of different ethical and cultural background came to this holy land of prosperous Hindustaan for the purpose of trading and business through famous and safe sea routes.

Gradually their localities and societies were established where temples were constructed and eventually by gaining local support and maintaining good social relations they brought about changes in the traditional Indian culture and likewise they adopted Indian social practices. In this way an innovative mutual social system was mooted for future generations.


Akhbaar - Flag Hoisting Ceremony
74th Republic Day 2023

We must respect it and sacrifice everything possible for its Dignity and Progress.  Our Nation, India is multi-cultural, multi-lingual, multi-religious, multi-ethnic pluralistic society.  Being children of a Great Unique Nation, we all are brothers and sisters related with the strong bond of multi-dimensional Indian Constitution.  We, the people of India enjoy all the rights and adhere to all the responsibilities meant for the National interest and integrity.  Our place of birth will remain our place of livelihood."

He is completely aware of the fact that Aqaa Maulaa holds the distinction of the Final Authority in the literary world of Shi'i-Isma'ili-Taiyebi studies.  His aim of having one-to-one meeting with Aqaa Maulaa is to take concrete steps in strengthening the bilateral literary relations between the Iranian scholars and the works of our Du'aat e Kiraam AQ.  Aqaa Maulaa requested him to focus on the unique works of Saiyedna Qaazi No'maan saheb (355 AH/966 AD) of Egypt and Saiyedna Haatim Mohiyuddin saheb (570 AH/1175 AD) of Yemen.  Both Da'is did great efforts in subduing anti-Shi'i propaganda and in establishing firmly the harmonious atmosphere of the Shi'i-Isma'ili principles for Tawheed and Imaamat.


Edinburgh University Press
A Neo-Fatimid Treasury of Books
Arabic MSS among the Alavi Bohras of South-Asia

Olly Akkerman

This book tells the story of a manuscript repository found all over the pre-modern Muslim world: the Khizaanat ul-Kutub, or treasury of books. The focus is on the undisclosed Arabic manuscript culture of a small but vibrant South Asian Shi’i Muslim community, the Alavi Bohras of Taiyebi branch of Isma'ilis having Yemen as the work-force and energy-house for literary activities. It looks at how books that were once part of one of the biggest imperial book repositories of the medieval Muslim world, the Khizaanah of the Fatimids of North Africa and Egypt (909CE-1171CE) ended up having a rich social life among the Bohras across the Western Indian Ocean, starting in Yemen and ending in Gujarat.

As it is perceived for other Bohra sects that their Khizaanah has remained unread or untouched for years together, it's not the case with Alavi Bohras.  Reading, Copying, Transmitting and Assimilating of manuscripts is a common tradition of a Da'i.  As per the mental capabilities of his believers-mumineen, Da'i always try to make them understand the intricacies and depth of Shari'ah espoused by the holy texts of these unique manuscripts. 

Alavi Senior Citizen
Organized by: Baroda Cyclopedians Ladies' Wing - 20/11/2022

When Seniors are considered really Seniors then things get better, hopes get organized and justice becomes desirable.  Elders hold the key of our traditional values and rightful actions governed by mature thoughts.  They become bridge between the past and present generation.  Forbearance, experience, patience, forgiveness and etiquettes has now the become the norm of their lives.  They have accepted that these are the last years of their lives and they want their loved ones to be near them and get benefitted.  They want to get audience from their family members, so that their words could be reiterated to their younger ones.

Laabh Paancham - The Perspective of "5"
Our Du'aat e Kiraam RA said, "Respect and love the people of the land where Allaah Ta'aala has bestowed upon you His rizq and sustenance."  In India we live in between non-Muslims.  And hence its our social liability to stay together and willfully share our feelings and greetings in their festivities.  A peaceful nation could only stand firm against every odds through pluralistic approach and prismic vision. Festival of Deepawali and it's celebration continues for several days and every single day has it's own significance. There are characteristic names of days observed for auspiciousness before and after Diwali. A day after night of Diwali is a new year day followed by bhaidooj, third, fourth and the fifth day of Laabh Paancham -the fifth day of Goodness and Benefits.

"O Mumineen! This is not the only Saalgirah-Milaad of your Da'i uz Zamaan Aqaa Maulaa TUS, but this is the Milaad Mubaarak of Nabi, Wasi, Imaam, Baab, Hujjat, Du'aat e Balaagh and Du'aat e Mutlaqeen SA.  These 7 Darajaat of our Isma'ili-Taiyebi mazhab are the 7 days between the Milaad of our beloved Nabi Mohammad Rasoolullaah SAWS, 2nd Rabi' ul Awwal, and the Milaad of your Da'i uz Zamaan TUS, 8th Rabi'ul Awwal.  All these days of this month are mubaarak and maymoon to you.  I dedicate all my Milaad masarraat to you and for the Khushi of your family.  A small piece of Khajoor that you offered me was a great treasure of Mawaddat and Mahabbat."  These are the golden words Maulaa delivered during the memorable speech of Milaad in Nooraani masjid.


Mukaasir Maulaa at Dars-e-Haatemi  

500th Dars-e-Haatemi at Daar us Salaam
1 Safar 1444 AH/28 August 2022 AD, Sunday

Dars e Haatemi is a small part of this endeavour.  Aqaa Maulaa TUS always thought to make every Mumineen to become a part of this vast treasure of Ilm e Haqq.  Before the commencement of this Dars, being Ma'zoon e Mutlaq, Aqaa Maulaa TUS conducted many such ilmi Duroos in Nooraani masjid.  Maulaa granted Razaa to Mukaasir Maulaa DM to hold such dars-assemblies of Mumineen to make the understanding of our Deen more easy and accessible.  Dars e Haatemi started on 4th Safar 1429/10th Feb 2008 at Nooraani Masjid.  This is till date a weekly Dars and this year it has reached its 500th ilmi gathering.  In 1438/2016 it got transferred for a year to Musanji masjid, Fakhri Mohalla.


Flag Hoisting Ceremony: 76th Independence Day 2022

Ma'zoon ud Da'wat Saiyedi Sa'eed ul Khayr'Imaaduddin saheb DM headed the program and said that, "Its our prime duty to remain loyal to our Nation.  To work together with other communities for its progress.  The land which has given us safety and sustenance, is to be deemed in high respect.  Tricolour is a sign of National Integrity and Communal Harmony.  This is a peaceful zameen of our Da'wat and Rightful Deeds."

We say something special for our National Flag, Tiranga.  Orange colour on the top is Fire (anger, enmity).  The White colour in the middle is Air and Water (peace, love).  The Green at the bottom is Earth- land (livelihood).  The Ashoka Chakra in the middle of the Flag is the intermingling of air and water in proper proportion to balance the effect of fire on the land.  This is when the land turns green and liveable.  All four elements of life could be seen in our Flag.

Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb TUS fondly remembered his days in the Madrasah when he took special classes of grown-up students nearing to the age of Bay'at.  Maulaa vividly explained the method of teaching at that time.  Those students are now parents and they cherish those years when Aqaa Maulaa being on the darajah of Ma'zoon, still gave such dars o ta'leem that is hard to forget.  He further elaborated to the defects and flaws of the present mu'allims in teaching pattern, weakness in adopting innovative techniques, reluctance in building rapport with the students and their parents, negligence in imparting the basic ma'lumaat for faazil days and nights etc.

Kharaas is always coupled with Mithaas.  It is made from vegetables, mutton, chicken or fish.  Served in a single plate or pieces that suffice all of the invitees sitting in the thaal.  As it is salty/oily in nature, care is taken that its quantity does not exceed the need.  Chicken dishes are favourite and evergreen.  It could be prepared with variety of combinations and taste.  As it is easily available and the ease in its making puts it on the top charts. Mithaas-Kharaas are the two inseparable sides of a single coin of Maa’edat e Aal e Mohammad (sa).  Likewise the beautiful coin of the Zindagi e Mu’min has two sides of Ghami-Khushi.  The moment of celebration is coupled with the moment of sadness.  Both are important and good to face and bear with gratitude and solidarity.

Each woman has to play several roles during her lifetime. It includes the role of a daughter, sister, wife, mother, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law and so on. Allaah Ta'aala has blessed every woman with innate strengths such as patience, compassion, multitasking, humility, creativity, optimism etc.  Family is protected by the outwardly intellectual strength of business and livelihood of Father and by the inwardly emotional strength of relations and home-making of Mother.  Imbalance in this creates discord and disturbances in a family.

In one of his bayaan, Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb TUS said that, “Till now we were following a tradition and has become a social norm that in order to get engaged a proposal is sent from a boy (dikro) side to a prospective girl (dikri)."


Chehlum (Arba'een) of Imaam Husain (AS)

As the majlis commenced, the Zakereen-e-Da'wat recited kalaam giving a devotional tribute to Aqaa Husain AS and his Ashaab for their truthfulness and sacrifice while remaining without water and food for 3 days. Following this, Khayr ul Anaam was recited by Hudood e Da'wat and the excitement  was felt in the air as physical majlis was taking place in Masjid after a long period of time. Despite heavy rainfall, there was a noticeable increase in the number of Mumineen-Muminaat than expected.  Attending the majlis of Da'i-e-Husain is the answer to the Da'wat of Aqaa Husain AS for reward and salvation.

History: 4th Da'i ul Mutlaq
Saiyedna 'Ali bin Saiyedna Haatim al-Haamedi (QR)
25 Zul Qa’adah 605 AH (Sana'a) – 30/5/1209 AD

Most distinguished work during the period of his Da’wat was to resolve the internal conflicts among the different groups and tribes of mumineen. He urged them to forget their generational pride and arrogance and lead life in the Khidmat of Da’wat and conform to the path of Allaah. Elevating the mumineen from the worldly matter and guiding them towards their destiny was an unparalleled task which Saiyedna ‘Ali (aq) successfully executed though he faced many challenges and difficulties.

In the last days of his life Saiyedna ‘Ali (aq) called his Hudood and companions in the Fort of Zamarmar and did Nass-e-Jali and appointed Saiyedna ‘Ali bin Mohammad al-Waleed (aq) as the 5th Da’i ul-Mutlaq after him. After his death, his body was brought to Sana’a city in a palanquin (palkhee). There is also an account stating that Saiyedna ‘Ali (aq) was martyred by poisoning him.

Our Population
Our Jamaa'at Population - What was, What is and What should be? The Onus lies in our Hands

We faithfully recollect our Muqaddas Maulaa’s wise words pertaining to this worrying trend, “Previously houses were smaller in size but members were large in number,  still there was support, love and Barakat in the house. But in the present situation, houses are large in size with too many rooms but members are few to occupy it. Too many walls in the house acts like barriers in the hearts of the family members. Only namesake love prevails and there is no trace of Mahabbat-o-Barakat in the house. This is a reality of revolution with decaying family values.”

DU'AA-o-Kashf il-Karb

If Allaah Ta'aala were to afflict you, there is no one who could stop the affliction but He, and if He were to bestow upon you some favour, He has power to do all that He wills.  We have revealed through the Qur’an for the believers what is the best for them as far as Wellness and Mercy is concerned.  There is no being but has a guardian over it.  We have adorned the lowest heaven with the beauty of the stars and have guarded it against all rebellious demons.  If the disbelievers turn away and don't heed to the advice then tell them, Sufficient for me is Allaah Ta'aala.  There is no God but He.  In Him do I put my Trust.  He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.

Life Inside Out - A Spiritual Overview
College going Saalehaat - Daar us Salaam 25-10-2019

After Maghrib Namaaz and Misaaq, Aqaa Maulaa addressed the gathering collectively that, “This is the ‘azeem karam of Allaah Ta’aala that mumineen are spending wholeheartedly in the noble cause for the Didaar and Arkaan of these Maqaamaat e Muqaddasaat.  Otherwise, people lavishly spend lots of money for outings and exploring new tourist destinations only for worldly pleasure and to get some break from their routine work.  But before getting indulged in such a huge expenditure, mumineen should first think of something that gives them spiritual boost by undertaking blissful and soulful journey.  This is called wise spending.   Spiritual gain is far more long-lasting than physical comfort as it has a direct relation with the life hereafter.”

The Window to Wisdom

Shari’at, the divine canonical law that powers a Believer to attain ascension in all fields of life, is the path of Purity and Mercy to be treaded only at the hands of Divinely endorsed Authority.  It is this authority that sets the perfect match between knowledge and actions.  Between these two things there comes the intension of a Believer based on the strong faith on Divine Authority appointed by the Holy Progeny of the Divine Prophet.  The Prophet gives full command and rule to his appointed authority-missionary over the entire life of a Believer.  This authoritative person trains and teaches his followers in acquiring the rightful knowledge and the righteous actions based on it.  If this happens then, it is said that, For a Believer his Master has opened a Window of Wisdom. 


Inauguration of Saiyedi Musanji Masjid
23 Sha'baan 1440/28-4-2019

“Since the time immemorial, the mumineen of Jamaa’at ul Haqq are associated with the masjid, where “Haqq na Saheb” offered namaaz along with mumineen and this remained in the centre-stage for building Imaani environment and social progress.  This masjid stands witness to the challenging time of our community when 32nd Da'i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Ziyauddin saheb (aq) left Ahmedabad and settled in the outskirts of this Vadodara city named “Miya Mehmood Wadi”.  At the entrance of Badri Mohalla, Maulaa built Ziyaai Masjid whose Mehraab and Qiblah were on the same pattern as that of Musanji Masjid.  Before 50 years during the Da’wat of 43rd Da'i ul Mutlaq Saiyedna Y Nuruddin saheb (aq), that Ziyaai Masjid got replaced with the newly built Nooraani Masjid.  But, for this Masjid, each and every thing has been retained and restored while beautifying it with Sang-e-Marmar.”

Akhbaar: Memorable Visit of Aqaa Maulaa at the mazaar of
Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed saheb (ra) - 20-21/7/1440

Aqaa Maulaa said that, “You all are my family, my ruhaani farzando.  I am your Waalid and I treat you equally and affectionately so I too expect from you that you all work together for the holy cause of Da’wat and the deeni progress of mumineen.  Unity, understanding and selflessness is the stepping stone to defeat the evil forces and plans.  Truth is with us, with the followers of Ahl ul Bayt (as), their Imaams and Da’is, but the need of time is that we should reveal our truthfulness at right place and time.  A simple way of precise dialogue is enough to uproot and shatter the baseless arguments of bid’ati people.

Lisaan ud Da'wat group went for outing with Mukaasir Maulaa - 6-8-1439

Lisaan ud Da'wat - The Language of the Alavi Spiritual Mission and the most versatile dialect of Alavi Bohras has its interesting history and long journey of expression and development dates back since the Imaamat and Caliphate of Faatemi Imaams in Cairo i.e. 1100 years.  It originated from its mother language Arabic with the help of its supportive languages Urdu and Persian.  Its structural and grammatical formation largely depends on Gujarati language.

Reasoning and Religiosity of Esotericism
Tanzeel-تنزیل or Tafsir-تفسیر (outer meaning or commentary on the Qur’an) is completely based of Ta’weel-تأویل (inner meaning) without which Tanzeel becomes void and meaningless.  The everlasting beautiful outward appearance is from inside and that which could not be seen and could not be understood by everyone.   The belief that each and every Qur’anic verse has both outer and inner meaning as the same is the case with the sayings of Prophet Mohammad which are applicable and acceptable in all times till the last Day of Doom.

In the Past : Wallaaho bekulle shayin Aleem

The succession of the true and blessed Da'wat, which exists on the facade of the earth from the beginning of creation till the Day of Resurrection (Qayaamat) , continues to disengage us from the bodily confinement and personifies our deeds, abiding to the shari'at, and ascends us to the sanctity and sacredness through the path of salvation (najaat). The competent authority of Allaah (Hujjat) is always present on this globe below the skies, either publicly (zaahir) or in the veil (satar, baatin). Allaah Ta'aala says in the Qur'an that, ‘This practice (sunnat) has been continuing from timeless periods and there is no possibility of change or alteration in it; and in every era there is a fiend, infernal and hellish Satan (Shaitaan) against the divine and saintly authority of Allaah (Hujjat).'
