Aqa Moula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb (TUS) has built in a short span of ten years a befitting mausoleum for Syedna Taher Seifuddin Saheb (RA). What I want to write here is what one can deduce about the personalities of the late Syedna Taher Seifuddin (RA) and our present Dai ul Mutlaq Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS).
The opening ceremony of Rosat Tahera was announced by Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) on the Salgirah of Late Syedna Taher Saifuddin and later postponed by him. Later occurred events that proved that Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin had seen ahead of time and knew, the events that happened were to happen and so the opening of Rosat Tahera was not possible to be performed on that particular date. What were these events that could hinder Syedna himself from performing opening of Rosa? The consolidated fitnat of the archenemies of dawat with the aid of members of the Indian parliament. These elements went so far in their fitnat that Syedna protested and demanded that his rights as an accepted Bohra Religious leader not only by the Indian Nation but by the World Muslim Nations was being infringed upon. Syedna even moved to Surat from Mumbai and only returned back to Mumbai after proper apologies had been received from the Indian Parliament, that in future the prerogatives of Aqa Moula as a true religious head will not be questioned. This came about after the date of opening of Roza had come and gone.
Aqa Moula announced that wakaf ceremony of Rosat Tahera and Noor Masjid adjoining it to be performed in chehlum. During this ceremony overseas guests were not expected to attend, as it was fiscally difficult to attend to them as already thousands had come from within India to add to the big numbers within Mumbai. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) performed this ceremony in the most befitting function and those who were present have earned uncounted blessings of both duat ul mutlakin.
Then the next episode in my analysis of the Roza opening needs relating. The date of opening announced on Milladunnabii Day. Again it was postponed. Now once again Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin proved that he could see ahead of time. The events that occurred had every body bowing their heads to Aqa Moula. In these function world dignitaries had been invited and they were supposed to be present in Mumbai during Miladdunnabii.
The sorrowful death of King Faisal of Saudi Arabia had taken place just at this same time when the opening was to have taken place and all those who would have come from the Islamic Nations to attend the opening had to attend the mourning in Saudi Arabia. Aqa Moula too flew to Saudi Arabia. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) proves himself the true Dai El mutlaq by these events to the dismay of his enemies. We the followers of Aqa Moula, pray to God Almighty to keep Syedna best of health until the day of Qiyamat and guide us his followers and all Muslims throughout the world. AMEEN.
