Syedi Husain bhaisaheb Husamuddin d. 11 Jamad al Awwal 1438AH,
7th February 2017

Mazoon-o-D'awat il Haq, Syedi Husain bhaisaheb Husamuddin, passed away peacefully late last night at his residence in Saifee Mahal, Mumbai, at the age of 100 (Islamic calendar years).

Born on 26th Jumada al Ukhra 1338AH (16th March 1920) Syedi Husain bhaisaheb was the son of the 51 st da'i al-mutlaq Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA and brother to the 52 nd da'i Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA by the same mother.

He was the uncle of the current da'i Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS.

Syedi Husain bhaisaheb - who had committed the entire Qur'an to memory - served in the offices of d'awat at length and with great distinction particularly in its educational and jurisprudence departments. On 18 Zilhaj 1414AH he was elevated to the office of Mukasir ul D'awat in which he remained for 21 years to both Syedna Burhanuddin and Syedna Saifuddin. On 18 Zilhaj 1435AH he was elevated to Mazoon.

Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS returned Tuesday morning (7th) from Nagpur to preside over the funeral rites; the funeral prayer and burial. The prayer was held in the main Bohra masjid in Bhendi Bazaar before Syedi saheb was taken to Raudat Tahera and then on to Nariyal Wadi in Mazgaon where he was laid to rest late Tuesday afternoon.

Syedi Husain bhaisaheb married twice having 12 children and over 120 grand-children and great grand-children.
