My tasavura't on the Ashara vaaz relay from Colombo 1429H
Once again the world wide community of mumineen received the baraka’ts of Ashara vaaz and sharaf of deedar mubarak, and were spiritually transported to the desert plains of Karbala, as their beloved Moula relived the tragic events that unfolded, culminating in the sahadat Imam Husain (S.A.)
With each nida of Ya Husain rose thousands around the world, charged with emotions, flowing tears, buka and matam. We all became one with our Moula. Time, space and distance merged, for a single purpose.
In the very first relayed vaaz on Jumoa mumineen around the world were made aware of the exalted position of Doat-us-satr. Ibrahim Nabi (S.A.) received farman and ta’eed to construct Baitullah and there after to climb upon mount ‘safa’ and placing fingers in his ears to give ‘azan’ to call aloud to people to come towards Kaba.
In fact when Ibrahim Nabi (S.A.) was commanded to give ‘azan’ there were hardly anyone around the Kaba at that time, who would have heeded to his call. Aqa Moula (TUS) revealed the true significance of the event by stating that with Allah’s ta’eed it was possible for Ibrahim Nabi (S.A.) to carry his clarion call through out East and West, around the world. Those in the groins of their fathers, those to be born centuries later, said labayk, and as many times they said labayk, they received the boon of haj pilgrimage, that many times in their life.
So when ever the call of aza,n is given, we should say labaik ya dai Allah ! Like Baitullah the very person of Dai symbolizes inherent goodness, in his actions, in his dawat and in his own person.
The most touching moments were when Aqa Moula (TUS) narrated the different arkans to be performed during Haj. He started by saying that when one ties ehra’m of Haj, he should say aloud ALLAHUMMA LABAYK – he should say at least four times, the more the better. Every one may have noticed that very moment Aqa Moula (TUS) like a loving and benevolent father, bent a little forward and addressed mumineen worldwide to repeat ALLAHUMMA LABAYK four times. As tears flowed like torrents, I for one was sure that this Jumoa I had performed Haj with Aqa Moula (TUS)
On 6th Muharram we were once again blessed to be in the majlis with Dai e Husain. From Imami takht flowed the four streams of Jannat. During the bayan on Ilm adad he emphasized on the importance of numerical ONE which is a numerical and also an active agent, with the help of which all subsequent numerical are recognized. Every thing is derived from ONE and everything will merge into ONE. Mumineen na vaste sharaf azeem che, Mohammad (S.A.) thi apni ginti shuru thai che. ONE is all encompassing.
The tasavvur I took from this noorani kalema’t was that at macro level of the Dawat our Nabi (S.A.) is ONE and at micro level our beloved Aqa Moula (TUS) is ONE. We have to be ONE with him first at the micro level, so that we can be ONE with RasulAlla (S.A.) and then onward ……………….
In this vaaz mubarak I gathered many reference points, which quenched my thirst. I will not like to elaborate, as I am not competent enough to express myself fully.
The most poignant moment of 8th Muharram vaaz was the emotionally charged appeal of Aqa Moula (TUS) - ai gulamane Ali, haji dil bharayoo nathi !!!
Amidst the rising crescendo of matam and nida of YA ALI – YA ALI - around the world, Moula fervently beseeched – Ai Ali ! hamari mushkil ne aasa’n karjo.
There is no doubt, that very moment, throughout alam – e – imaan, mumineen je sagla Moula na sathe ALI ni tasbih kidhi, sagla ni mushkil aasa’n thai gayee, Shamal jame karvanoo kam Aqa Moula nu che ane te ALI MOULA ye aasa’n kari a’pu on 8th of Muharram.
By repeatedly urging mumineen the world over, till the very end of vaaz to call upon the Blessed and Glorious name of YA ALI YA ALI – Moula accomplished to establish the fact that -
‘ Tasbih Ali ke naam ki
Hei jabaja, har su ba.............
I am fully aware of my limitations to express my tassavura'ts. I feel like a salt doll trying to measure the depht of the ocean. I feel completley inadeqate, but I have tried, and that is satisfaction enought for me.
May Allah grant our beloved Aqa Moula (TUS) sehato-a'fiyat-ta-kiymat. Ameen.
