This is for the first time that such a huge number of mumineen-muminaat nearly 200 along with their families or relatives are going for either ‘Umrah Mufradah or Karbalaa-Najaf.  It all started from this month Safar ul-Muzaffar and will continue till the end of Rabi’ul Awwal.  The largest group is for ‘Umrah Mufradah named al-Azhar and headed by Ra’s ul Hudood saheb along with 62 other mumineen.  Aqaa Maulaa invited all of them at Daar us Salaam on 23rd Safar 1441/22-10-2019, Tuesday for Wadaa’ and Du’aa.  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.”

“Karbalaa i.e. the holy mausoleum-Rawzah Husainiyah is the spiritual Ka’bah of Imaamat and the physical Ka’bah in Makkah is the Qiblah of Imaamat.  Ka’bah is the birth-place of Maulaana ‘Ali Ameer ul Mumineen (as).  So Maulaa is the Qiblah of Imaamat, that is the reason he is Wasi of a Nabi and not am Imaam.  Imaamat originated from him and reached its zenith during the Shahaadat-martyrdom of his son Imaam Husain (as) in Karbalaa.  Thus, the grave-qabr of Imaam Husain (as) is the cradle of Imaamat and the spiritual Ka’bah of the physical Ka’bah.  The existence of Imaam is necessary for the importance of Ka’bah and Qiblah.  It is only due to the progeny-aal of Imaam Husain (as) that Ka’bah and Qiblah maintains its existence and the Aal is nothing but Imaam uz-Zamaan (as).”

The function of 'Umrah Mufradah was held at Daar us Salaam on 14th Rabi' ul Awwal/22nd Nov, Thursday evening.  Huzoor e 'Aali Saiyedna saheb TUS gave Razaa Mubaarak to Mukaasir Maulaa Saiyedi Mohammad Bhaisaheb Nuruddin DM to head the group al-MARJAAN which comprises of 60 mumineen.  The safar of the 14 days of 'Umrah Mufradah will insha-allaah begin from 28th Nov till 12 Dec and the group will first visit Madinah al-Munawwarah.  Mukaasir Maulaa conducted 2 sabaq of Makkah and Madinah separately and explained in depth its arkaan and Du'aas.

At Daar us Salaam, mumineen offered namaaz of Maghrib and 'Ishaa il Aakherat along with 2 rak'ats naafelat namaaz of Wa'saa is Safar.  Before the Bay'at of mumineen, Aqaa Maulaa took Bay'at of Mukaasir Maulaa and Maa sahebah took the same of Busahebah.  Aqaa Maulaa addressed the gathering and said that,

"If you are financially capable and Allaah Ta'aala has granted you all wasaa'il with health then only you should think of such journey.  Doing 'Umrah by taking loan is not recommended.  Shari'at is not harsh but it orders what a common man can perform.  al-Hamdo lillaah now mumineen are well aware of the groups headed by Saheb e Da'wat as they feel relaxed about the minuteness of arkaan as Saheb e Da'wat is always with them to explain its significance and recite the Du'aas."

"Now, it has become the rule that such large group are going for 'Umrah or Karbalaa every year under the guidance of Da'wah Shareefah.  Such Maqaamaat Muqaddasah has the power like the magnetic force, to nullify the sins of a mumin, but for this Du'aa plays a vital role.  O Mumineen, you will be visiting many such places, so do Tawbah and Istighfaar.  Always remember your Da'i and Jamaa'at.  Each and every corner and place of Ka’bah is the place of Du'aa of Ambiyaa and Awliyaa.  You are pleased to get this opportunity to get down on these Maqaamaat and pray as much as you can."

Hudood e Da'wat did Istiqbaal of Mukaasir Maulaa and at the end all of them took dinner on Maa'edah Aal e Mohammad SA.

Allaah Ta’aala says in the Qur’an, “Wa-atimmul Hajja wal ‘Umrata” – “Complete Hajj and ‘Umrah”. Sawaab of completing ‘Umrah is described in the Qur’an although Allaah Ta’aala’s first command is the Obligation of Hajj. Mumineen should first perform Hajj and then take Niyat of doing ‘Umrah.

Maulaana 'Ali (as) says – He heard Rasoolullaah (saws) that, whoever does ‘Umrah one after other then Allaah Ta’aala forgives all his Sins between his two ‘Umrah. He further adds that, whoever has a wish for this World and the Hereafter he should visit the Ka’batullaah (he should do Hajj or ‘Umrah). Allaah Ta’aala will grant all his wishes whoever visits Ka’batullaah and does Du’aa.

Performing the Tawaaf, offering Namaaz and doing the Sa’ye between the Safaa and Marwah are the Sunnah of all Ambiyaa SA commanded by Allaah Ta’aala for seeking Forgiveness and Blessings of Allaah Ta’aala. Every Nabi has visited the auspicious place of Makkah and Madinah in their respective times and has instructed their followers to do so.

With the Blessings of Allaah Ta’aala and Khamsat ul Athaar SA, Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS performed ‘Umrah Mufradah in Safar ul Muzaffar 1439 AH. 122 Mumineen who accompanied in the ‘Umrah got the Sharaf of performing the Arkaan of ‘Umrah along with Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS and the Hudood.

Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS named this ‘Umrah Mufradah as ‘Safeenat un Najaat’ – The Ark of Salvation akin to the Safeenah of Nooh Nabi SA. Among the Hudood e Da’wat were Ra’s o Hudood id Da’wat il ‘Alaviyah Dr Zulqarnain Hakeemuddin Saheb DM, Shahzaada Sa’eed ul Khayr Bhaisaheb, Haddsaheb Qambar’ali, Haddsaheb Naseeruddin, Haddsaheb Badruddin and Bhaisaheb Qais’ali.


Wadaa of Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS from Vadodara and Mumbai:


Mumineen did the Wadaa of Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS and the Hudood e Da’wat on the night of 30th Moharram 1439 at Badri Mohalla. Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS addressed a short speech in the presence of Mumineen that “May Allaah Ta’aala complete the Arkaan of ‘Umrah and return us safely in our Watan”.

Majlis of Wadaa was held for the Mumineen of Mumbai on 1st Safar ul Muzaffar 1439, Saturday at Zenith Hall where Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS did the Bayaan about the Historic Safar of ‘Umrah Mufradah with the Mumineen. He said that after Saiyedna Ziyauddin Jivabhai bin Noohji Saheb RA, he is the first Da’i to undertake a separate Safar of ‘Umrah Mufradah with such a large group of Mumineen. In his Du’aa he added, "May Allaah Ta’aala bestow the Sharaf for every Mumin to visit the Ka’batullaah and al Masjid un Nabawi and Jannat ul Baqee’."

  Al Masjid un Nabawi and Mashaahid of al Madeenah al Munawwarah:

Before entering al Masjid un Nabawi, it is compulsory for the Mumineen to visit the Masjid e Shajarah and offer Namaaz and perform Du’aa in the place of Ma’arras. Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS did a Khusoosi Du’aa at Ma’arras. Mumineen got the Sharaf of reciting Shahaadat, Salaam and Balaagh along with Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS in the Rauzah al Jannah – Jannat ni Kyaari. Mumineen gathered at 9 pm in the Sahn of al Masjid un Nabawi where Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS did short bayaan explaining the Arkaan of Madeenah.

Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS went to Jannat al Baqee’ after the Fajr Namaaz and on few instances did the Bayaan near the Quboor of Ahl ul Bayt SA. Mashaahid of Madeenah includes Masjid e Qubaa which is also Masjid e Qiblatayn for us where by the Command of Allaah Ta’aala the Qiblah was changed from Bayt ul Maqaddas to Ka’batullaah in the 2nd Hijri. Place of Khandaq where Masjid e Fath, Masjid e Maulaana ‘Ali SA, Masjid e Faatema Zahra SA, and Masjid e Salmaan ul Faarsi are situated. All these Masaajid at Khandaq reminds us of the Fazeelat of Ahl ul Bayt SA. Shohadaa e Ohad – Qabr of Maulaana Hamzaa SA is situated on the outskirts of Madeenah where Mumineen recites Salaam on Maulaana Hamza and Shohadaa of Ohad. Other Mashaahid includes Masjid e Zainab bint Jahash, Masjid e Ra’yah, Masjid e Suqyah, Masjid e Mashrabat e Umm e Ibrahim SA, Masjid e Fazeekh, Masjid e Sabaq, Masjid e Ghamaamah, Masjid e ‘Ali SA etc. Majority of the Masaajid are closed for the visitors.


Arkaan of ‘Umrah:


Mumineen were divided into 2 groups – first group of 50 Mumineen was with Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS one day earlier on Monday 3rd Safar ul Muzaffar. 2nd group of 72 Mumineen came to Makkah on Tuesday 4th Safar ul Muzaffar. Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS came to Haram on the second day too to overlook the Arkaan of 2nd group of 72 Mumineen. Mumineen did the Tawaaf of ‘Umrah Mufradah along with Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS and did the Du’aa near Mustajaar in the seventh round of Tawaaf.


Nisfullayl in the Haram:

Sawaab of one Namaaz in the al Masjid ul Haraam nearest to the Ka’batullaah is equal to 1 lakh Namaaz. Apart from the Fareezat Namaaz, Mumineen assemble in the Haram to offer the Naafelat Namaaz of Tasbeeh il A’zam, Qazaa il Hawaa'ij, Nisfullayl and Tahajjud. Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS did the Bayaan on several occasions in the Haram near different places but instructed Mumineen to remain present for the Nisfullayl and Tahajjud Namaaz in the Haram. Everyone got the Sharaf of offering Nisfullayl and Tahajjud Namaaz facing the Mizaab of Ka’batullaah. Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS and Ra'sul Hudood recited the Munaajaat among the Mumineen aloud. Huzoor e ‘Aali TUS did a short Haqeeqat Bayaan on Friday Night after Tahajjud namaaz.


Mashaahid of Makkah al Mokarramah:


Ra's ul Hudood Zulqarnain Hakeemuddin Saheb accompanied Mumineen for the Ziyaarat of Mashaahid of Makkah al Mokarramah. He did Bayaan at several places explaining the historic significance of that particular place. Mumineen went to Jabal e Saur – where Rasoolullaah SAWS took refuge enroute to Madeenah for the Hijrat. From there the qaafelah went to Jabal e Rahmat – Mount ‘Arafah where Mumineen offer Du’aa on 9th Zul Hijjah till sunset. Masjid e Namerah comes on this route. Near Masjid e Namerah zaa'eraan went to ‘Alamayn – the Door to ‘Arafah, from where Mumineen enters the ground of ‘Arafah. ‘Alamayn were originally 2 pillars but only one exists now. Batn ul Waadi is an open place near ‘Alamayn where Mumineen offers Qasar Namaaz of Zohr and ‘Asr together on 9th Zul Hijjah.

Masjid e Mash’ar il Haraam comes on the way from ‘Arafah to Mina from where Mumineen collects 70 stones on 10th Zul Hijjah morning. Masjid e Kheef is in the Mina Tent City where Jibra’eel SA descended with the Command of Allaah to appoint Maulaana ‘Ali SA as the Wasi. Ghaar e Hira is the place on the mountain where first revelation of Qur’an took place. Jannat ul Mo’aala is the Old Cemetery of Makkah al Mokarramah where Maulaatona Khadeeja al Kubraa SA, Maulaana Abu Taalib SA and others are buried. Mumineen recite Salaam on them in the Cemetery. Outside the Qabrastaan is the Masjid e Jinn.


‘Umrah from Taa'if:


40 Mumineen did the second ‘Umrah from Taa'if. Ra's ul Hudood Saheb accompanied them. Mumineen got a chance to visit several historic places of Rasoolullaah SAWS and Maulaana ‘Ali SA in Taa'if. Before Rasoolullaah SAWS did the Hijrat to Madeenah, he frequented Taa'if. But the Kuffaar of Taa'if harassed Rasoolullaah SAWS in the same way as Kuffaar of Makkah did. Rasoolullaah SAWS took refuge in the Orchard of Grapes where a Ghulaam gave Rasoolullaah SAWS 18 grapes. All these places still exist in Taa'if. Mumineen took the niyyat of ‘Umrah Mufradah in Masjid e Qarn near Taa'if.

On 2nd Safar 1439/22 Oct 2017, Aqaa Maulaa along with 120 mumineen-muminaat will begin 15 days safar-e-maymoon for 'Umrah Mufradah.  In 1412 AH/1992 AD Aqaa Maulaa did Hajj Baytullaah and that Qaafilah was headed by Muqaddas Maulaa.  In Moharram when Aqaa Maulaa did izhaar of ‘Umrah and he gave khusoosi name to this Qaafilah as “Safinat un-Najaat”.  This is the first instance when so many mumineen have together joined a single group and it is only because Aqaa Maulaa himself is the Saalaar and Qaa’id of this group. Aqaa Maulaa is accompanied by Ra’s ul Hudood saheb, Shahzada Sa’eed ul-Khayr Bhaisaheb along with 3 Hudood.  Aqaa Maulaa has instructed them to take care of the group and make them understand each and every aspect of ‘Umrah.  As and when necessary, Daras will be held to disseminate the actual understanding of the arkaan.

Aqaa Maulaa said in his bayaan that,

“Mumineen should avoid going to ‘Umrah or Ziyaaraat individually as the arkaan could not be carried out properly and timely.  Under the guidance of Saheb e Da’wat, the group members are very much clear about the arkaan and aamaal.  They receive regular instructions and any queries are solved and answered immediately.  The whole group acts in an organized and well-mannered way and each event is planned as per the need of time.  Mumineen spend thousands of rupees and their hard earned money should not get wasted by going with ignorant and unauthorized person.”

"Makkah is the place of the Da’wat of Ibrahim Khaleelullaah (as) and Madinah is the place of the Da’wat of Mohammad Rasoolullaah (saws).  To take the barakaat of both these places Allaah Ta’aala has chosen us to perform ‘Umrah and make ourselves free from Gunaah and Zunoob."

Rajab ul-Asab is 7th Month of the Hijri Calendar. Rajab means that which creates Awe and Surprise in the hearts of Mumineen. Asab means that which is Revealed by Allaah. Hence for the Mumineen, Rajab is the month of Revelation of all 'Ajaaib from Allaah. It is the month of Me'raaj (Ascension) of Rasoolullaah (saws) to the Heavens (Jannat); Birth of Maulaana 'Ali Sahab-e-Zulfeqaar (as) in the Ka'batullah; and Nass done on 29th Da'i al-'Alavi al-Fatemi Saiyedna 'Ali bin Saiyedi Ibrahim as-Shaheed (aq) by 28th Da'i al-Fatemi Saiyedna Shaikh Adam Safiyuddin Saheb (aq) on 3rd, 4th and 7th Rajab 1030 AH in Ahmedabad.

In this auspicious and Mubaarak month of Rajab ul-Asab, for the first time, a group of 73 Mumineen will Insha Allaah go for 'Umrah Mufradah. And the most fortunate thing for all mumineen is that the members of Royal Family - Sadaat-e-Keraam are accompanying them to the 'Umrah.

Umm ul-Mumineen Durrat ul-Bayzah Maa Saahebah (dm), Mukaasir ud-Da'wat al-'Alaviyah Mohammad Nooruddin Saheb (dm), Shehzaadi Mo'azzamah Shukranabu and Shehzaadi Mo'azzamah Hasanabu and few others from the Royal Family are accompanying the Mumineen. It was a long wish of Maa Saahebah to visit the Ka'batullaah and do 'Umrah Mufradah. Huzoor-e-'Aali (tus) gave Razaa Mubaarak to the Qaaflah of the Mumineen.

During the Majlis of Wadaa and Bay'at (Misaaq) of mumineen, Huzoor-e-'Aali (tus) did Khusoosi Du'a for the Maa Sahebah, Mukaasir Saheb and all mumineen for the acceptance of all Arkaan of 'Umrah Mufradah. He concluded his speech with the Du'a of Se'hat and 'Aafiyat for all mumineen.

Ad-Da’wat ul-Haadiyah gave Razaa to one of the khidmat-guzaar Sultaanalibhai Surti to form a single group of our mumineen having Niyyat and ummeed of ‘Umrah Mufradah and deedaar-e-Ka’batullaah.  29 Alaviyeen came to the Hazrat of Saiyedna saheb, took different daras to understand Arkaan of Umrah in detail, got an opportunity to get an overview of various places through audio-video presentation.  At Daar us-Salaam in the presence of Saiyedna saheb (tus) all of them gave Bay’at which forms the most important tradition and part of our doctrine before presenting oneself to Baytullaah.  Due to the old age and serious ailments some of them prefer for ‘Umrah, but this thing never replaces or equates with Hajj Arkaan.  Hajj is obligatory for the one who can manage all the things and it is one of the tenets of Islaam.

With fazl-o-karam of Allaah Ta’aala and wasaa’il of Awliyaaullaah (as), in the month when the master of our faith Ameer ul-mumineen Maulaa ‘Ali (as) was born in the most holiest and sacred place on this earth, Ka’batullaah, over 70 mumineen are going for Rajabi ‘Umrah Mufradah in different groups.  Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus) gave Razaa to all of them when they came for Qadambosi and Bay’at at Devdi mubaarak.  It is for the first time that so many mumineen are going for didaar-e-Baytullaah in a single month.  All of them were given extensive daras for different Arkaan and aamaal during ‘Umrah at Bustaan-e-Badri.
