Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb (TUS), in 1421H,in waaz at Surat, while addressing blessed all mumineen and addressed as "mara pyaara pyaara farzando (my beloved children." It was the City of Surat, the land on which stands the great mosque of Syedna Abdeali Saifuddin(RA)- The majestic Masjid e Moazzam and the land that Mowla(TUS) refers to as "Hamaru watan che(Our Native Land)", where Moula expressed the UMEED. It was a very special umeed; that of building a ZARIH at Jannatul Baqi. A shrine to cover the grave of Fatima (AS) - The daughter of the last Messenger SAW and the mother of Imams...

...In 1422 at Houston, for the first time during Ashara Mubaraka in the west, the umeed of Zarih was expressed. Blessed are Mumineen from all corners of the world who gather to listen to Kalemat Nooraniya. At Indore, India, this year Huzurala expressed the umeed with great fervour and emotion. Moula TUS has expressed the desire to construct the Zarih at all occassions. Whenever the name of Fatima (AS) is mentioned, the Holy land of Baqi comes to sight...whether it be at Ashara Mubaraka, Dawat Majlises, Getherings, Masajid Iftetah, we remember Moula TUS's ummed. Mumineen all around the world are praying for Moula's TUS umeed to be fulfilled. Huzurala(TUS) expresses the umeed of Zarih at all times and at every place. It is a dream that every mumineen would want to be true. Inshaallah will be!. With the blessings of Panjatan Paak(AS),Imam Uz Zaman (A.S) and Du'at Ul Mutlaqeen it will be true. May Allah bless us and give us the courage to pray for the Zarih Mubarak of Rasulullah (SAW) and Moulatena Fatema(A.S.) at  Jannatul Baqi in Madina.

Jannatul Baqi- Open and Bare Land

This is a plot of land not far from where the mosque of the prophet stood and the houses of his companions around it were built as living quarters. This land was used as a cemetery for the Muslims. Baqi lies to the west of the town of Madina and here are graves of Ibrahim(AS), Prophet’s only son and also the grave of his daughter Fatima(AS). There are graves of Prophet's grand son Imam Hasan(AS), Imam Ali Ibnul Hussain(AS), Zainul Abedeen(AS), Imam Muhammad Baqir(AS) and Imam Ja’afar Sadiq (AS).
The cemetery of Baqii, as in the history of the shrines, was destroyed by the Wahabis in 1932.  "It looked like a town was razed to the ground. All over the cemetery nothing was to be seen but little indefinite mounds of earth and stonesblocks of stone , pieces of timber, iron bars, and a broken rubble of cement and bricks strewn aboutbeen. It was like the broken remains of a town which had demolished by an earth quake, . All was a wilderness of ruined building material and tombstones, not ruined by a casual but raked away from their places and ground small." (Islam World).

The authorities have erected a wall around the whole area of Baqi incorporating also the jewish part of the cemetery in it to make it into one huge cemetery. A platform has been built just outside the wall where people can stand and see the graves of the Holy Masoomeen(AS) and shed a tear or two. People are not allowed to enter the inner circle of the wall or to go near the graves. They have to stand about 30 feet away from the place and can see the outlines of the graves.

Qabr-e-Fatima deserves a roof
Qabr-e-Fatima(AS)-Deserves a 'roof'

This is Jannatul Baqi where the grave of the most beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (SAW) together with her children and grand children lies in wilderness without even a roof over them!.

O'mumineen, how can we forget Jannatul Baqi. How can we forget Qabr e Fatima(AS). Mowlanal Mina'am(TUS) has  repeatedly spoken about Mowlatena Fatima(AS) and the anguish and torment that befell on the on the house of the Holy Prophet(SAW) after the Prophet(SAW)'s demise. Fatima tus Zahra(AS) went through a lot or pain and agony after the death of the Holy Prophet(SAW). 

O`Mumineen, these sufferings even continue today after fourteen centuries; the Qabr Mubarak of Fatima(AS) and her children and grandchildren lie open and bare in Baqi. The sufferings are not only on the Ahle bait(AS), but also on the shia of Fatima(AS);(Dua'at ul Mutlaqeen) and the shias of Duat ul Mutlaqeen. We are barred from performing ziarat in Baqi.  

Today,look around! Zarihs and Turbats have been built for Imams and Duat ul Mutlaqeen in great pride and splendour BUT Qabr e Fatima(AS) still lies open, bare and without a roof. We sincerely pray that the Zarih of Nabi Ibrahim (AS) and Zarih for Fatima(AS) be built. We are sure that Zarih e Fatema is also the umeed of all the mumineen today all around the world. We pray to Allah Subhanahu to make our dreams come true. 

We pray...


O`Allah, bless the land of Jannatul Baqi

  O'Allah, bless the Qabr Mubarak of Fatima(AS)

  O'Allah, with Wasilla e Panjatan Paak(AS), Aimat Tahireen(AS) and Duat ul Mutlaqeen bless our beloved Mowla(TUS), Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin(TUS)

  O'Allah, show us the day soon when Mowla(TUS) fulfills His UMEED of building a ZARIH at Baqi

  O'Allah show us the day soon, that we the Shia of Fatima(AS) reach Jannataul Baqi with Mowla(TUS)

  O'Allah grant us our wish of performing Ziarat of Fatima(AS) with Mowla(TUS) at Jannatul baqi

  O'Allah bless all mumineen and always guide us on the right path to abide by the teaching of Aqa Mowla(TUS)

  O'Allah grant our beloved Mowla a very long, healthy and prosperous life till the day of judgement


Mowla(TUS) performing dua during ziyarat at Baqi  

Yeh Sharaf haq Taala se pakar,
Phir Baqiye me sajda bajakar,
Choomli aapne kabre Zahra(A.S.)...
Tum Salamat raho mere Mowla(TUS)
Aaj har dil ki hai ye tamanna...

Moa'ijiza jag ko Mowla battaado,
Khalq pe hoga ehsan tumhara...
Tum Salamat raho mere Mowla(TUS)
Aaj har dil ki hai ye tamanna...

Mu'mineen du'a sabh kar rahe hai,
Khaliq e Khalq se keh rahe hai,
Tul ho aap ki umr Aqa(TUS)...
Tum Salamat raho mere Mowla(TUS)
Aaj har dil ki hai ye tamanna...
