Reason #62: His Own Dawat

53 Reasons NOT To Believe Khuzaima Qutbuddin

Khuzaima Qutbuddin began his Dawat with the launch of his ‘official’ site while Burhanuddin Moula’s RA jism mubarak was still being laid to rest by Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS. While Mumineen were mourning their father, some literally while watching the mubarak dafan, they received emails to answer Khuzaima’s call. Repulsive and awful as this is, the fact of the matter, one which is far worse, is that Khuzaima had begun his Dawat while Burhanuddin Moula RAwas still alive.  Alongside Burhanuddin Moula’s RA  Dawat, Dawat-e-Hadiyah, Khuzaima many years ago had established his own. The inappropriate uses of traditions and protocol reserved for the Dai, the constant distance maintained away from hadrat imamiyyah especially during the last several years, the apparent discouragement of others from going to hadrat imamiyah, the regular emphasis on one’s own achievements and little to no mention of the Dai, and the establishment of…

# 61: The Essence of al-Jamea-tus-Saifiyah

53 Reasons NOT To Believe Khuzaima Qutbuddin

Though grudgingly acknowledging al-Jamea tus-Saifiyah’s value, Husain downplays the importance of him and his siblings not having attended Jamea. He states that because they were tutored by al-Dai al-Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA and Khuzaima directly, it was unnecessary for them toaffiliate with Jamea since they accessed Ilm Aale Mohammed SA at its source.

This is why he is wrong.

Al-Jamea-tus-Saifiyah: Ideal and Concept

Nothing encapsulates the concept and ideal of Jamea better than Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’s profound statement: Jamea mari zaat che (Jamea is my entity, my being, myself). This eloquent sentence merges two separate but interrelated standpoints. Firstly, this sentence shows us that Syedna Burhanuddin’s zaat mubarakah, his entity and being is Jamea, which means “all encompassing”. Every aspect of Dawat Hadiyah, be it belief, knowledge, practice or character is represented in his thoughts, words and actions. Furthermore, his entity is such that it assimilates all Mumineen…

#60: In Khuzaima We (dis)Trust

53 Reasons NOT To Believe Khuzaima Qutbuddin

In Response to Husain Qutbuddin

Husaain Qutbuddin states:

       To be Mazoon Mutlaq means to enjoy complete authority. Such complete authority must mean investment of complete trust by the Imam and his Dai. If such complete trust has been invested, then his word is absolute, he cannot stray.

Judging by the variety of fallacies presented in his videos, this definitely appears to be one area where he can claim irrefutable mastery in. Here, a crafty slippery slope is provided in which the rhetorical torrent of cause and effect might obscure a weak mind.

The Mazoon is limited by the authority and delegation of the Dai. If he had such complete authority as Husain claims, what would be the difference between the two entities? Khuzaima did not enjoy unlimited, unaccountable freedom in Dawat matters. But for argument’s sake, even if he did, it means that he was expected to serve effectively and…

#59: No Comparison

53 Reasons NOT To Believe Khuzaima Qutbuddin

In Response to Husain Qutbuddin

All throughout his banter, Husain Qutbuddin would not have us reflect on fundamentals and have us focus instead on incorrect historical analogies and skewed character analysis. Lets look at a couple of examples.

He states:

What’s happening right now is similar to Rasoolullah’s initial establishment of Islam. Only three individuals were with him at its inception, so only a few Mumineen today is acceptable. Majority is not a proof of haqq. The Quran has chastised the majority in many instances. Isn’t this analogy logical etc etc?

Why this is false? First of all, even if any parallels were allowed between Rasoolullah SA and Khuzaima, all the premises and analogies drawn by Husain are proven inappropriate upon reflection.

Early Islam

Rasoolullah SA was establishing a whole new religion amongst a community of polytheists (mushrekeen). He was asking them to leave idols they had worshipped…

Reason # 58: Husain Qutbuddin’s Intellect: To See or not to See

53 Reasons NOT To Believe Khuzaima Qutbuddin

Husain constantly appeals to intellect and reason assuming that the several hundred thousand followers of Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS are not doing the same. Now that their lifeline of whimsical evidence is proving deficient,  they have resorted to smoke and mirrors. Husain tries to purport the use of intellect and reason as a red-herring and diversion from the truth. He has brought out the age-old dusty suit of the ‘the place of intellect in religion.’ However, his mistake is he assumes that members of the Dawoodi Bohra community do not adhere to logic, reason, and intellect in their own individual understanding of religion.

The bulk of his argument suggests that his listeners should use their intellect and draw conclusions solely based on the information he has provided for them as the premise.

Thus, finding the flaw in his proposition is not difficult.  The primary flaw, or deception if you like…

Reason # 50: The Principles of A Fatemi Heritage

53 Reasons NOT To Believe Khuzaima Qutbuddin

Khuzaima Qutbuddin and his children suggest a vision for the future of their firqa and purport that it is in line of Fatemi principles and values. They say that one should gain the Ilm of Aale Mohammed  SA and also have knowledge of a Fatemi heritage. For a true Mumin, however, the Ilm of Aale Mohammed SA and the knowledge of our Fatemi heritage is more than a token of the past – it is an ideal and principle which is sacrosanct and through which we choose to live our lives.  Therefore, I believe that the truth about what Fatemi values and principles are should be clearly defined through actual examples from that period of time.

There are countless examples from Fatemi heritage and history which serve as examples for us to form principles on how to conduct our lives.  I would like to point to one specific example which…
