Reason #28: Qasm by Quran
From the FatemiDawat website:
“Syedna Burhanuddin’s Mazoon of 50 years is swearing an oath on the Quran that Syedna Burhanuddin did nass on him”
A video has been posted which shows the claimant holding up a Quran, one which apparently belonged to Syedna Taher Saifuddin and disrespectfully waving it about, saying that he swears by ‘this Quran’, that he is the 53rd Dai. This is reminiscent of what happened during the battle of Siffeen. Syedna Al-Qadi Al Noman RA explains in detail that when Moawiya saw that the battle was going to be lost and that victory was soon to be in favour of Amirul Mumineen, he craftily placed the Quran on the heads of spears and called both sides to resort to the command of the Quran. He had no intention to establish the truth or to clarify who the rightful Imam was. Rather his sole design in this was to safeguard his corrupt interests. He knew that every ayat and every sura would testify in favour of Moulana Ali AS and there could be no possible refutation. Syedna Al-Qadi Al-NomanRA clearly argues that Moulana Ali ASdid not need to resort to referring to the Quran. He was Quran e Naatiq – what he said and did was the right and only valid interpretation of the teachings of the Quran.
There is no record of a Dai having to swear by the Quran to prove that he was the rightful Dai, for every Dai is the sura of the Quran. There has never been a need to for it as the Nass e Jali of the previous Dai establishes his successor as Dai; the swearing on the Quran is meaningless and deceptive. Anyone can hold the Quran and falsely swear by it. Khuzaima has repeatedly shown that he has never respected the authority and maqaam of Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA, who, as Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA repeatedly said was a sura of the Quran. It would not be beneath him to falsely swear by it. All he is doing is preying on the uninitiated and naive by attaching sentimental value to the Quran in his hand, by saying it belonged to Syedna Taher Saifuddin.
