Reason #78: Clarifying The Truth
(Received via email from a Mumin Bhai requesting to post his testimony on this site)
This is in reference to the article posted on http://www.mostbelovedson.com/uncategorized/jamaat-khana-colombo/ which cites Sh Hamza Hebtullahbhoy’s reference (Colombo, Sri Lanka). I am writing this on behalf of Sh Hamza Bhai, as his relation and a director of the mentioned company (M.S. Hebtulabhoy & Co, Ltd).
The article claims the the following:
- Sh Hamza Bhai built Qutbi Hall Jamat Khaza in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
- At this time, Sh Hamza Bhai did araz that he was struggling financially. Inspite of this, Mr K instructed him to build a Jamat Hall for Niyaaz e Husain AS. By obeying his “farman” Sh Hamza Bhai was blessed with immense wealth, to the extent that on the very next day, someone handed him a huge cheque which summed up to the amount he needed.
- This was the solely due to the “barakat” and “Mojiza” of Mr K.
- I do not deny that Mr K initiated the building of the Qutbi Hall.
- The Qutbi Hall was not built by Sh Hamza Bhai alone, rather it was funded by the entire company, M.S. Hebtulabhoy & Co, Ltd, and Sh Hamza Bhai played an important role in this khidmat.
- At the time, M.S. Hebtulabhoy & Co, Ltd was definitely not struggling financially, they were extremely successful, more so, I can vouch, that with the enormous wealth they had at the time, if they wanted to, they could have built 10 ‘Qutbi Halls’ at the blink of an eye.
- The alleged “mojiza of the cheque” is nothing but fabricated lies. Neither he, nor the company received any such large amounted cheque.
- For arguments sake, IF this Mojiza was true, as mentioned in the article, the hall was built to feed mumineen in the name of Imam Husain AS. How can Mr K claim that this was his Mojiza? When in fact his belief and ikhlaas (if he had any) deems he should have immediately attributed it to the shaan of Imam Husain’s Dai, or at least Imam Husain AS himself, instead of basking in the glory of his own ego.
- It is the belief and tradition of any khidmat guzaar, to always attribute (mansoob) any of his successful endeavours in khidmat or life to his Moula, and be grateful to have been given a chance, if not worthy of his khidmat. This is the tasawwur of an adna mumin. It is sad to see that Mr K having been in the lofty position of the Mazoon failed to understand this.
- On another note, if Mr K is very eager to be a part of our success story, then he must take part in its tragedy as well, because a few years later, the company suffered a massive loss and went bankrupt.
