@James I read the links. Honestly, the explanations fall way short of convincing me.
1) If it was norm to call Syedi Mazoon saheb 'Moula' (as per explanation) then why did Mufaddal bhaisaab himself stop people from calling him (Mazoon) Moula later?
2) If it was norm to write TUS after the Mazoon's name, then later, why did Mufaddal bhaisaab himself object to people doing doa of tulul umr for the Mazoon?
3) The explanation faults fatemi dawat for not mentioning the date, but it looks like Mufddal bhaisaab himself has forgotten to write the date on the letter, and as we all know now, he is not very good at remembering dates
4) The website is trying to draw a parallel between the letter written my Imam Mansur to ustad Juzer, where there is none. quoting from the site.."However, even though Imam Mansur was in the most ‘Aala and Afḍal rutba after Imam Qa’im, these are the words and etiquette that he used when writing to Juzer. He had to hide his rutba, he could not manifest it openly, even with Juzer who was privy to its knowledge."
In this case, Mufaddal bhaisaab was not aware of his own 'rutba' at the time of writing this letter, as per his own admittance, so there is no question of hiding his 'rutba'!
5) The Website asks, "Is this not the same traditional and age old etiquette and character that we see in the letter from Moulana TUS to Khuzeima!"
OF COURSE NOT! Mufaddal bhaisaab's letter is way more
than just polite etiquette! The Imam's letter is a polite letter giving advice to ustad Juzer, but by no means is the letter anything close to what Mufaddal bhaisaab has written. Mufaddal bhaisaab's letter is full of praise for his Moula!
He calls him Maula, and himself his ghulaam, over and over in this letter.
He says he is fida for him.
He describes Syedna Qutbuddin’s face as “full of noor.”
He prays for long life for him, using the “tul-ul-umr” formula for a total of 8 times in this letter.
He refers to Syedna Burhanuddin and Syedna Qutbuddin as “beve Maula.” He prays for “tul-ul-umr till qiyamat” for “beve Maula”.
He begs for the honor of celebrating Syedna Qutbuddin’s salgirah in his presence.
He refers to Syedna Qutbuddin’s shafaqat and tenderness for him.
He states that Syedna Mohammad Burhanuddin is very pleased with Syedna Qutbuddin.
For the benefit of all, here is the translation of the Imam's letter:
May Allah be forgive you. May he be benevolent towards you and complete his grace to you. Allah knows that I avoid things and I loathe speaking about any matter. However, when I remembered your righteousness, your affection, and my closeness to you, I considered that endearment erases bashfulness and requires that I be not stingy with you in giving sincere advice…. (Trans. Hamid Haji)
Pray, where is the resemblance???
Now coming back to my original question, do you think that the experiences shared by mumineen on the http://www.mostbelovedson.com
website are true?
