Reason #87: Why KQ Never Recites “Fulkul Hussain”
In the first waaz during Ashara 1431 H, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA stated that in following in the footsteps of his esteemed father, “Mamlook e Ale Mohammed has composed this marthiyah (Fulkul Husain), [which I presented] in the khidmat of Imam Hussain during the historic trip to Karbala (1430 H)”.
The following year, during 1432 H Ashara Mubaraka, he referred to the marthiyah he had composed and stated that “….in perpetuating this unbroken line of bukaa’, Mamlook-e-Aale Mohammed did araz in this marthiyah that…..”
The zikr of Imam Hussain AS and especially this marthiyah shareefah, encapsulates the one of the greatest legacies of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA – his deep-rooted love for Imam Hussain AS and the nurturing of that love in the hearts of Mumineen.
Khuzaima’s Complete Disregard for this Marthiyah
Yet, this marthiyah, which represents what Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin stood for and all that Imam Hussain meant to him, has been disregarded and dismissed by Khuzaima and his followers.
Not once, in a single bayaan or waaz, not even during the Asharas he conducted after 1430 H did he recite a single verse from this marthiyah – not one. In fact, he and his sons stopped Mumineen from reciting it. If they wanted nothing to do with it, then at least they could have let those who loved their Moula recite Moula’s marthiyah. But they did not.
Past and Present
Khuzaima clings on to the past, not realising that the past only holds meaning when it is understood through the present. He will recite (just as he has done in his most recent video) Ya Syeda al- Shohadaa’, but never Fulkul Hussain. He recites the marthiyah of his father but never the one of Burhanuddin Moula, who called him ‘Al-Walad al-Ahabb’ (most beloved son) three times. Is this how he shows his reverence to his spiritual father?
Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’s every action, gesture and sentence was revered by every mumin. Khuzaima enjoys drawing parallels between himself and the great Mazoon, Syedi Abdulqadir Hakimuddin QR. However, does he know what Syedi Hakimuddin would do when receiving any correspondence from the Dai of his time? He would be waiting in earnest, anticipating the arrival of a letter or mithaal. When the letter would arrive, he would stand up in reverence, would kiss the seal of the Dai and lay the handwritten words of the Dai upon his forehead. Did he not take heed from the seerat of the eminent mazoons of the past? Taher Qutbuddin reminds us that Khuzaima would do sajda when Syedna Burhanuddin’s RA mithaal would reach him. Why is he respecting Maula’s mithaal mubarak but disrespecting his marthiyah mubarakah?
It seems unfathomable why Khuzaima adamantly refuses to recite this marthiyah. Why is it so difficult for him?
· Is it because he thinks it is below his stature to recite the marthiyah of the 52nd Dai Mutlaq?
That would mean he sees himself above and beyond the position of Dai Mutlaq.
· Is it because he believes that the marthiyah is a misrepresentation of Imam Hussain, the events of Karbala and the meaning of bukaa’ and matam?
· Is he saying that he knows better how to do the zikr of Imam Hussain AS, that somehow he is better versed and better equipped for the rithaa’ of Imam Hussain?
If so, then it is a direct assault on the lofty and exalted status of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA. He thinks himself superior to the Dai of his time. He is denying that the Dai is the recipient of the faiz of Panjatan, Aimmat and Duat and says and does things which have no basis in fact.
It is worth keeping in mind that Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA composed this marthiyah two years before his stroke, which Khuzaima claims incapacitated Moula. The reality is that even if Moula did not have a stroke and he conferred nass in such a state, it would have made no difference to Khuzaima. He would have still come up with baseless claims that he was mansoos. His rejection of this marthiyah is evidence enough that he rejected everything that Moula said and did.
In the end one can only conclude that given all the facts, Khuzaima’s omission of this marthiyah from all his discourses and gatherings since 1430 H, is further evidence of his deep contempt for Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin. Ultimately in doing so, he has denied that Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin was the rightful recipient of the nass of Duat Mutlaqeen.
‘Fulkul Hussain’ Personified
For forty days after Syedna Burhanuddin’s RA passing, this marthiyah mubarakah was recited in Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin’s TUS presence: at the side of Maula’s qabr mubarak, in sadaqallah and then during the majlis. Every single day. He knows that the single greatest eulogy to his father is the recitation of this marthiyah. It is proof of his deep-seated reverence, unflinching loyalty and uncompromising love for Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin – something only a mansoos can have.
