London Dawoodi Bohra
عشرة مباركة 1439هـ
Ashara Mubaraka 1439H
In London UK, Ashara Mubaraka 1439H was presided over by Shezada Dr. Husain Bhaisaheb Burhanuddin at the London Ashara Waaz Hall, by the raza mubarak of Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS. Shehzada Husain Bhaisaheb expounded that 1400 years after Rasulullah, and 900 years after Tayyib Imam went into seclusion, we still have knowledge of the Imam of the age, of all the Imams and of the Panjetan Paak. This is because he who is appointed by the Nass of Imam, the Dai-l-Satr, is present among us, our guide, our Maula, the receiver of the knowledge of the Imams through Nass. It is he who through the authority of Nass leads us and calls us towards the Imam of the age and his Dawat, he who calls us to know the Panjetan Paak. A binding force through each waaz was the rationale, delivered by Shehzada Husain Bhaisaheb which resonated with crystal clear precision, that in each age, the mansoos alayhi, - the designated appointed successor, - is the one authorized to lead us; and to expound knowledge of the Imams to us; and to interpret this knowledge to us in every age.
An overall theme running through Shehzada Husain Bhaisaheb’s waaz was the hadith of Rasulullah, that being a Mumin constitutes and more than just giving misaq - it demands 6 traits that a Mumin must display to be justifiably called a true Mumin. He explained that we will listen to 3 waaz of Mawlana al-Mannan Syedna Taher Fakhruddin, and that in the remaining 6 waaz he will explain each of these 6 traits based on examples through philosophy and grounding them in history and what this teaches us and that in Ashura afternoon he will read the maqtal of Imam Husain. Shezada Husain Bhaisaheb corroborated its meaning and application through examples of the history of the Dawat, and its philosophy so that Mumineen could make these 6 traits a life template and treasure of guidance.
Through the days of Ashara at the London Ashara Waaz Hall, each heart was filled with the blessings of knowledge and each heart was abounding in gratitude. Each of Shehzada Husain Bhaisaheb’s waaz, through unobstructed, grounded explanation, had enabled Mumineen to further understand the basis of the rationale of religion, and for the choices each makes for life and for God, to do what is right, and to fulfill duties to both this world and for the hereafter. Through this deepened understanding, in Ashura Mumineen were blessed with pouring showers of barakaat through Husain Bhaisaheb’s recital of maqtal, and Mumineen wept continual tears of utmost grief and did matam all day in remembrance of the tragedy of Karbala.
