Sad Demise of Hazrath Mufthi Mashayak Syed Yakhub Saheb Ishaqhi

We, at the Mahdavia Foundation, feel the pain of missing an honored scholar of our community (Hazrath Mufti Syed Yaqoob Sahab Ishaqhi). As our beloved prophet (pbuh) said that the death of a scholar is the death of a universe, our community lost a great scholar and it is a loss of the whole community. We pray to Almighty Allah to bless him with His vision (Deedar),  provide comfort to his family, and provide his replacement to the community in the form of his successor.

The whole town of Channapatna mourned these two days observing bandh of all commercial activites a mark of respect to the dearest departed soul. The flood of general public irrespective of communities which attended the Namaz - e - Janaza and burial ceremony, was estimated as more than 25000 by media whcih covered the prayer and procession.

Milad-un-Nabi (pbuh)                           

May 19, 2002

The Milad celebration of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was held at Masjid-e-Syed Hashim, MICC building, Chicago. The gathering was addressed by Hazrath Moulana Abul Fatah Syed Nusrath Tashrifullahi, Mr. Rahmat Ali Khan (President), and Mr. Niamathullah Khan Sufi. Mr. Parvez Yadullah Mehdi, and Mr. Lateef Syed Saif presented the Naat. Earlier, Mr. Hafiz Asadullah Khan recited the verses of Holy Qur'an to mark the opening of Milad celebration. Hazrath Nusrath Tashrullahi  focussed his speach on the level of trust Prophet Muhammad had on Allah (Tawakkul). He gave detailed account of the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Mahdavia Islamic Center of Chicago (MICC) extends its thanks to the community members  for their attendance.

2nd & 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal

May 11, 2002

There is a general consensus among the Muslims on the birth day (Milad) of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Most of us believe that the Milad occurs on 12th of  Rabi-ul-Awwal. 

However, there is a difference of opinion on the date when the Prophet (pbuh) departed this world. Some believe that this date is the same as 12th of Rabi-ul-awwal, and some believe that this is the 1st of the same month.

However, we, Mahdavis, are fortunate to have the knowledge of the correct date through our beloved Imam, Caliph of Allah, Hazrath Syed Muhammad, Mahdi-al-Ma'ud (pbuh). The correct date is 2nd of Rabi-ul-Awwal. Our Imam (pbuh) did observe the Urs of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) on the 2nd of this month. Therefore, all the Mahdavis observe the Urs of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) on the 2nd of Rabi-ul-Awwal.

This event has also become a part of Mahdavia history because on the same date, one of the sons of our Imam (pbuh), Hazrath Bandagi Mian Syed Ajmal (RZ), also died when he was just an infant.
