From amongst the Duʿat Mutlaqeen, He (Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA) rose in the sky of Imamat as a radiant sun. The pre-eminence of his being a testament (burhān) [to the legacy of his predecessors] ensures that the lives of the faithful are serene and blessed with comfort. As the Proof (burhān) upon whom the blessings of the spiritual realm are ever-flowing, he transformed into a divine Intellect which then ascended to its lofty station in the presence of the Imam. He is the collector of souls and the cup-bearer who — with the authority granted to him by his Maula, Imam al-Zaman, the son of Maulana Ali — will offer Mumineen wholesome cups of divine blessings from heaven’s eternal river, Kauthar. He is the Proof that radiates [truth] and the downpour [of blessings] that flows incessantly. Clouds [of the sky] seek the blessings of his noble countenance in order to bring forth rain while from his munificent eyes flow the springs of mercy and intercession assured by Rasul Allah’s SAW progeny, the descendants of Taha, Ya Seen and Ha Meem. He is our beloved Maula, Syedna Abu al-Qaidjohar Mohammed Burhanuddin. May Allah lengthen the life of the bounties, favours and beneficence he showered upon Dawat and its children until the Day of Qiyamat. In accordance with his wisdom, he chose to veil himself [from this world]. Aah! Aah! Aah! [How great is my sorrow] upon this overwhelming calamity; one in which each Mumin’s inconsolable grief is evident in the deluge of tears he sheds.
