Reason # 55: A Call To Reason – The Undeniability of Nass
(In reply to Husain Qutbuddin’s Youtube video)
Substantiated by Dawat texts.
The above mentioned words are phrases by which Husain Qutbuddin describes his father’s arguments and claims to the position of al-Dai al-Mutlaq. He explains in his YouTube videos that the wise thing, the intelligent thing to do in this situation, is to accept his father as the Dai because he is willing to talk and answer questions. He alleges that what he says and the historical evidence he provides are reasonable and substantiated by Dawat texts.
The irony is, however, that for someone who is so insistent and encouraging of others to use their intellect and reasoning in determining what is Haqq, he, his father and his siblings haven’t employed the same tool. In all the instances where Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA has very clearly established his nass upon Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS, Khuzaima, his kids and those who they have preached to are unwilling to listen to reason and continuously disregard and ignore the very Dawat texts they try to use to bolster their own false claims.
Let us evaluate.
Is it reasonable to dismiss the entire nass of 1388 H by declaring the document as a forgery without having even seen it, held it, or examined it?
Is it reasonable to ignore the entire nass incident of 1415 H, wherein Syedna Burhanuddin RA recounts the entire nass of 1388 H to Shaikh Abdulhusain Yamani in Karachi nearly twenty-seven years later, thus establishing, beyond a doubt, that the 1388 H nass occurred and further strengthed the nass upon Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS?
Is it reasonable to ignore Shaikh Abdulhusain Yamani and pretend his testimony regarding the 1415 H nass that took place in Karachi does not matter, one that he has again and again recounted and retold? How is his veracity in question as well?
Is it reasonable to conclude that a man’s entire family, all seven of his children that he knowingly and deliberately surrounded himself with, his grandchildren and great grandchildren, his entire kin consisting of more than 200 individuals, all somehow betrayed his trust? The trust of a figure who was not only their physical father, but more importantly their spiritual father. He was the one whose happiness and obedience they believed was their path to heaven and whose benevolence and generosity they experienced every waking minute of their lives. How can it be that this entire family, every last one—apart from a seemingly disgruntled half-brother, who was rarely seen to be near him, all betrayed his trust? How could they all have taken advantage of the ailing health of their father, one who they were willing to give their lives for in a heartbeat?
Is it reasonable to consider that the people Moulana Burhanuddin RA entrusted and charged with the task of operating several functions of the entire Dawat, including his brothers, sons and their children, are all untrustworthy? These were the individuals who he had personally groomed for Dawat’s khidmat, the ones he has repeatedly in countless bayaans referred to as the apples of his eye, the solace of his soul, and his most beloved and cherished. He often referred to them as his own limbs and organs, and the very support by which he stands. Is it reasonable to disqualify their testimonies without a shred of valid evidence against them other than conspiracy theories? Is it justifiable to say that they should all, every last one, be perceived as liars and concocters?
Is it reasonable to deny the eyewitness testimonies of eight different individuals living today (listed below), at three different instances of nass spanning twenty years on baseless accusations mere assumptions of fact? All of whom meet the criteria set by Dawat texts for testimony?
· 1415H Nass – 1) Shaikh Abdulhusain Yamani
· 1426H Nass – 2) Shahzadah Dr Qaid Joher Bhaisaheb and 3) Shahzadah Malekulashtar Bhaisaheb
· 1432H Nass – 3) Shahzadah Idris Bhaisaheb, 4) Shahzadah Qusai Bhaisaheb, 5) Shahzadah Ammar Bhaisaheb, 6) Shahzahdi Husaina Baisaheba, 7) Dr Moiz Bhaisaheb 8) Abdulqadir Bhaisaheb
Is it reasonable to denounce the testimonies of thousands of people who worldwide saw and heard Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA re-confer nass upon Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS on the 19th of Rajab, 1432H and is it reasonable to then blatantly claim, regardless of these testimonies, that this nass in fact did NOT happen?
Is it reasonable to claim that almost every Dawoodi Bohra except a few hundred —every single person: man, woman and child—is making this event up or misunderstanding the truth? Is it reasonable to believe that everyone is just conspiring against him or that the only truthful person in Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’s Dawat, one he diligently and painstakingly nurtured for fifty years, is Khuzaima Qutbuddin?
Is it reasonable to assert that something has been given to you, or an appointment has been made upon you without any witnesses, without any concrete evidence other than your own testimony and personal belief?
The answers to these questions are obvious. Khuzaima’s actions and words, along with Husain’s recent Q & A’s defy reason. The only word that can describe their claims to anyone who uses reason is ‘delusional.’ By definition –
delusion (dɪˈluːʒən): psychiatry illusion, See also hallucination, a belief held in the face of evidence to the contrary, that is resistant to all reason (Collins English Dictionary)
