Al salamo Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatohu
Memories of Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA are evoked every day and especially on the eve of 16th every month. After this program, darees will be observed followed by the documentary. It is of sheer coincidence that the documentary tonight features the extraordinary efforts of Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA and Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS in the field of education and that we too have gathered to discuss education.
I welcome Ummaal Kiraam, 12 Umoor committee members of mawaze, office bearers of Daeratut Tarbiyate wa Attalim, Almadrasatus Saifiyatul Burhaniyah, Mahad al-Zahra, Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah, Mahad al-Hasanat al-Burhaniyah and Amalat who have joined this meeting.
After hamd, salawat and dua for Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin that may Allah Ta’ala grant him a long life, I would like to talk upon some important points in a very concise manner.
I would also like to say to all Idarah Khidmatguzaars, Ummaal Kiraam, 12 Umoor committee members, Umoor Taleemiyah members that we have immense expectations from all of you, Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal SaifuddinTUS has immense expectations from all of you in terms of khidmat.
man zanna bika khairan fa saddiq zannahu.
Tonight, I would like to talk specifically about al-Quran al-Kareem and then generally about education.
Starting with education, the Khidmatguzars of all departments have been assigned a particular age group of mumineen to cater to. These Idarahs will work accordingly.
I also appreciate the efforts put in by Ummaal Kiraam, Muraqebeen, Moalimeen, Muhafizeen and Umoor Taleemiyah for the betterment of Mumineen and Jamat.
Summing up the appreciation by quoting RasulullahSAW and Moulana AliAS’s qawl mubarak: Khairokum mann Ta’allam al-Quran wa Allamahu.
Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal SaifuddinTUS defined the following goals of Umoor Taleemiyah during Ashara Mubaraka 1441H in Colombo:
1- May there be one hafiz in every household
2- May everyone reach the highest pedestal in every educational field
3- May everyone achieve deeni and dunyavi taalim
This should be and is the vision of everyone.
I would take this opportunity to emphasize that everyone should come together and work collectively for the betterment of the Jamaat. After all, the main goal of 12 Umoor is the betterment of the Jamaat.
Moving towards another important point, I would like to reiterate Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA and Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS’s vision and aspiration that every house have atleast one member amongst them who has committees the entire Quran to memory. Hence every Idarah and every Khidmatguzaar is working towards it as portrayed by the statistics given.
We are here to discuss how to implement Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’sRA bayan that every mumin should lead a life illuminated by the teachings of wahy and Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin’sTUS bayan that every household have at least ONE hafiz, both of which are also the vision of Mahad al-Zahra.
A “Roles and Responsibilities” document has also been sent to Ummaal Kiraam, hence Ummaal Kiraam should plan in accordance to it.
Few months back, a meeting was organized with Mahad al-Zahra in which Ummaal Kiraam and Khidmatguzaars of cities where Qism al-Tahfeez exists were called and were given a mandate of proposing a plan of how they would work in their city to achieve the goal. They proposed their current status and a five-year plan according to it. For instance, Karachi has 8000 houses and huffaz count is 539, so according to its ratio, there is 1 hafiz in every 15 houses. Houston’s ratio is 9:1, Los Angeles has a ratio of 26:1 and Nairobi has a 4:1 ratio.
Hence, I request every Amil to discuss with Ummaal Kiraam and Khidmatguzaars of these cities and chart out a plan for their city within a defined timeframe. We can first start with a 3:1 ratio and then move ahead step by step towards 1:1. Keeping this an introductory webinar, I would like everyone to chart out plans, work upon it and keep continuous follow-up so that we achieve this goal.
Extraordinary programs are being held in cities with regards to Hifz al-Quran, Taleem, Qira’at and Understanding its meaning. For instance, a few days back, Hifz al-Quran musabaqat was held amongst Abnaul Jamea which seemed to be an International level competition.
Planning, Road mapping, Action and Continuous follow-up are the most important aspects for accomplishing the vision of ONE Hafiz in every household.
I request office bearers of Mahad al-Zahra to share contacts with Ummal Kiraam and request them to create a plan within a timeframe and start working upon it.
Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA institutionalised many farman of al-Quran al-Kareem, one of them in Qardan Hasana and the second in ita’amut ta’aam. Al-Quran al-Kareem has many ayahs which call towards giving qardan hasana, likewise al-Quran al-Kareem calls towards serving meals. Hence institutionalising this farman helped mumineen in participating in Faiz al-Mawaid al-Burhaniyya.
Likewise, Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed BurhauddinRA and Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal SaifuddinTUS institutionalised education systems in madaris imaniyah so that they become everlasting.
Appointing the right person in the right place eases the work.
Summing up the address, Ummaal Kiraam should plan and achieve their targets like other cities have planned, so that we achieve the vision of MoulaTUS.
May Allah Ta’ala grant a long life to Al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin.
Wa aakhero dawana anilhamdolillahe rabbil aalameen.
