Reason #33: Aqa Moula al-Hayy al-Muqaddas RA Na Ishaara About Khuzeima Qutbuddin
Khuzeima Qutbuddin and his children claim that:
“Aqamola RA performed Nass on him 50 years ago, in private, when he appointed him Mazoon on 17 Shaban 1385H, saying: “Maara pachhi bhai Dai chho,” and he instructed him not to reveal the nass until the appropriate time. “
Furthermore, they suggest,
“Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin was Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’s Mazoon until his wafat. No one can dispute this. Mazoon’s aala shaan is attested in Dawat kitaabo. Therefore, you must accept that what Syedi Mazoon Saheb is saying about Nass is the truth (and that what shehzadas are claiming counter to that is fabricated).” (please also note that this text says Syedi Mazoon Saheb in it as of Feburary 1st 2014. This site was published on January 17th hours after Aqa Moula al-Hayy al-Muqaddas’s demise yet the authors are still calling Khuzeima ‘Syedi Mazoon Saheb.’ This is just more proof that this website preparation preceded Aqa Moula al-Hayy al-Muqaddas’s RA passing and seems to have been compiled in anticipation of his demise. What Mumin would prepare such a site and make such claims unless they were preparing for the demise of Moula RA. This is not only heart-wrenching it is outright detestable).
However, more than the words of a Mazoon claiming that they are the next Da’i, on the contrary, it is more prudent and sound to rely on the words of Dai al-Satr himself. In fact, it is the utmost important duty of any Da’i to do Nass on his successor. For this fact everyone is in agreement. So if Khuzeima Qutbuddin and his children claim that we should believe him because he was the undisputed Mazoon for 50 years – shouldn’t we put more trust in the words of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin al-Hayy al-Muqaddas RA? Wouldn’t Aqa Moula TUS had given us an ishaara of some kind? Wouldn’t he have wanted to somehow ensure that mumineen follow his true successor? In fact, traditionally throughout Da’wat’s history Duaat Mutlaqeen RA have employed Nass Jali (open and public proclamation of Nass) along with Nass Khafi (hidden or nass done in private) in order to ensure that the Mansus was known to the majority. This is simple common sense. However, the meaning of Nass Khafi (hidden nass) does not just mean that it is done in private; rather, it also extends to ishaaras (gestures) that are given by the Da’i towards the shaan of his successor. These types of ishaaras, Nass Khafi, were conducted on Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS countless times and Mumineen are witness to them, not just in the last three years, but throughout the history of Aqa Moula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin al-Hayy al-Muqaddas’s zaman. We have discussed some on this site, such as Reason # 9, and we will discuss more in other entries. However, if the claimants, Khuzeima Qutbuddin and his children, suggest that he (KQ) is the true successor of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA – than surely it is only logical that Aqa Moula RA gave some sort of ishaara towards this and their claims.
However, it is clearly evident that the ishaaras from bayaan mubaraks of Aqa Moula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin al-Hayy al-Muqaddas RA do not resonate with Khuzeima Qutbuddin and his children’s claims and that is why they have refrained using even one example from the Iqtebasaat Nuraniyya (excerpts from Ashara Mubaraka – the main event and congregation of Mumineen in the zamaan of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA) in their entire website as a source for anything, much less for Nass Khafi or ishaara towards Khuzeima Qutbuddin’s stature. It would make complete logical sense that in these gatherings, in which the largest flock of Mumineen Mukhliseen who gathered each year in growing numbers, Aqa Moula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin al-Hayy al-Muqaddas RA would have done some sort of ishaara about Khuzeima Qutbuddin if he was his true successor. Well, Aqa Moula RA did one ishaara in the bayan below. In Dubai Ashara 1425 H., referring to the tartīb in the zaman of the 41st Dai, Syedna Abdul Tayyeb Zakiuddin RA (see Reason # 23 below) Aqa Moula al-Hayy al-Muqaddas RA said,
al-Maula al-Ajal Shaikh Adam Safiyuddin was the eldest of them all. He was the Shehzada of Syedna AbdulTayyib Zakiuddin RA. He, this Shaikh Adam, was in the rutba of Mazoon – a very eminent (baland) Rutba. However, that every single Mazoon becomes a Da’i, that is not the case. He (Syedna Abde Ali Saifuddin RA) is the Dai al-Satr.
Satr’s Dai has immense responsibility and must carry a heavy burden, one that no one is able to carry except with the power and might of Khuda (خدا ني حول انے قوة سي).
Therefore, Aqa Moula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin al-Hayy al-Muqaddas RA first taught us not to compare the maqam of Da’i Satr with that of the Mazoon and secondly, Mazoon is not always the next Da’i. Although, their rutba is very ‘aala, it does not outrank that of the successor who is going to become Da’i. This was his clear ishaara towards us – العاقل تكفيه الاشارة – ‘a meaningful gesture is enough for an intellectual.’
The website of Khuzeima Qutbuddin, fatemidavat.com, does just the opposite. It is solely a claim of his less than humdrum fifty years of service as the Mazoon as proof of his successorship. Rather than believing his cherry-picked arguments – I would rather put my faith in the words of Aqa Moula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA – who is still speaking to us today. Therefore, the appendage – al-Hayy al-Muqaddas – echoes even more clearly in our ears.
