AL HAYYUL MUQADDAS SAYEDNA MOHAMMAD BURHANUDDIN MOULA (AQ)
the word 'al - hayy' signifies 'ever living' so to me personally as I write my final EID IZ ZAHABI post spiritually I still feel Moulana saath saath - the journey continues
for the community at a cross road, these are the most troubled and difficult times.
I find succor and peace in his loving memories
dawat na umoor sehal thai jaye Moula ! - shitabi sehal thai jaye !
is my constant pleading in each dua, after each tilawat and any pious act performed.
16th Rabi ul Awaal Jumoa 12.14 pm as I was preparing to go for my regular Jumoa Namaz
will for ever be etched in my memory
the night of 17th Rabi ul Awaal spent in the precincts of Saify Mahal
witnessing the outpouring of love and grief
17th Rabi ul Awaal the day of the final journey
waiting on the road for hours, for the final Deedar
and joining the multitude of mumineen, for a short distance,
as it slowly made it's way to Raudat Tahera
the night of 28th Rabi ul Awaal will for ever remain in my fond memories
from 12 midnight to past 1.30 pm doing ziyarat, doing tilawat, praying nisful layl
feeling reluctant to leave
28th Rabi ul Awaal - attending Khatmul Quran Majlis in Saifee Masjid
getting the sharaf of Deedar and taziyat arz to
SAYEDNA MUFFADAL MOULA (TUS)
between 5th Rabi ul Aakhar and 15th Rabi ul Aakhar
embarked on a ziyarat journey, which took my wife Rabab and me to
in each Kubba Mubaraka did ziyarat - offering hadiyah to our
beloved A'li Qdr Muffadal Saifuddin Mouls (TUS)
fervently pleading with each vali that Dawat na umoor shitabi sehal thai jaye
remembered fondly the azeem kurbani of Moylai Raj bin Hasan
in my vatan Lunavada gave Misaq to the 53rd Dai ul Mutlaq (TUS)
MOULA na saath saath
the journey continues.....
“During his long and illustrious life, he championed the cause of education and healthcare, besides giving an unstinting support for environmental conservation and protection. In his departure we have lost a living symbol of communal harmony and peaceful coexistence,”
