Personal life

Early life

Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin was born on 20 August 1946 (23 Ramadan 1365 A.H.) in Surat, India,[6] and was given the name Aali Qadr Mufaddal (Arabic:? ?, Abjad value 1365, which corresponds to his Islamic year of birth) by his grandfather Syedna Taher Saifuddin. His kunya is Abu Jafar us Sadiq and his laqab is Saifuddin.[7]

During the era of his grandfather Syedna Taher Saifuddin, he began the recitation of the Quran in Saifee Villa, Colombo.[8] He received much of his spiritual tutelage from his father, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin and his father-in-law Syedi Yusuf Najmuddin (QR)[9] the erstwhile rector of Al Jamea tus Saifiyah. In 1969 he graduated from Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah with the al-Faqih al-Jayyid degree (the Distinguished Jurist).[7] In 1971 he was conferred with the degree of al-Aleem al-Baari' ( the Outstanding Scholar).[7]

He married Jawharatusharaf Najmuddin, daughter of Syedi Yusuf Najmuddin (QR), on 1 January 1970[10][11].

At 22 years of age, his father Burhanuddin designated him as his successor by performing nass (appointment by designation) on him in 1969, following that, in 2005 and 2011.[12][13]

Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin often accompanied his father Mohammed Burhanuddin, meeting heads of state and notable personalities. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin was appointed Amirul Hajj by his father Burhanuddin in 1390 AH (1970 CE). After Hajj, he travelled to Karbala, Najaf, Syria, Misr and Yemen. In Yemen, he laid the foundation for the 3rd Da'i al-Mutlaq's Hatim's mausoleum. After that journey Burhanuddin bestowed upon him the honorific title Aqeeq-ul-Yemen in 1391 AH/1971 AD.[14]

Leadership

He has led numerous projects for the restoration of medieval Fatimid masjids in Egypt and other Islamic edifices. Projects include the restoration and revival of Al-Hakim Mosque (al-Jamea al-Anwar), the restoration of the masjid of Syedna Zoeb bin Moosa in 1406H,[15] the restoration of Aqmar Mosque in 1408H,[16] construction of the mosque in Salamiyah in 1414H,[16] restoration of the Lulua Mosque & Juyushi Mosque in 1416H, the construction of the Zarih of Zaynab bint Ali in Cairo in 1416H, construction of the mosque in Ashkelon in 1421H, the construction of the Mazar and Mosque of Syedna Hatim in 1425H, and the discovery of the burial places of eight Da'i al-Mutlaq in Yemen.[17]

During his centenary birthday celebrations (in 2011), Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (RA) announced that a new Al Jamea tus Saifiyah campus would be built in Nairobi, Kenya. The construction of this 14 acre campus commenced in 2013, and was inaugurated by Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) and the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta on 20 April 2017.

Philanthropy

Syedna Saifuddin's father, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin conceived the Bhendi Bazaar Redevelopment Project and a public charitable trust named the Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust[18] was created on 23 January 2009 with an initial corpus provided by settlors Syedi Qaedjoher Ezzuddin and Shahzada Abbas Fakhruddin.[19] The first phase was inaugurated by Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) on 18 May 2016. "About 250 dilapidated buildings in Bhendi Bazaar will be replaced with 17 new towers with wide roads, modern infrastructure, more open spaces and highly visible commercial areas." This ambitious philanthropic enterprise "aims to rehabilitate 3200 families and 1250 business which are currently living in poor conditions." It is expected to reach completion by 2020.

On Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin's posthumous 103rd Birthday, Mufaddal Saifuddin donated INR 103.53 crore (US$15.53 million) to the Qardan Hasana Scheme[20] (interest free loan fund for the Dawoodi Bohra community) in the name of his father.[21]

On 19 July 2016, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin(TUS) met Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and expressed interest in investing in Egypt. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin also donated 10 Million Egyptian Pounds (US$621,553) to the Long Live Egypt Fund (Tahya Misr).[22]

Through the Burhani Foundation[23] Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin has launched environmental awareness campaigns[24] such as the tree-planting[25] and bird feeding campaigns such the "Save our Sparrows" initiative.[26]

To reduce food wastage, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin introduced a regulation to strictly limit the number of dishes served in any community, social or personal gathering where Dawoodi Bohras are present. This was launched under the motto of "ek kharaas, ek mithaas, no israaf" (one savoury, one desert and no wastage).[27]

To ensure that not a single community member goes hungry, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin has actively expanded worldwide the community kitchen scheme[28][29] named Faiz al-Mawaid al-Burhaniyah[30] (Arabic ). Everyday, a Tiffin or Thali consisting of a fully prepared and cooked meal is delivered to each Dawoodi Bohra community household free-of-cost.[31]

In December 2016, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin initiated an 'Upliftment Program' (later named "Rafo Mustawa Maishate Mumineen") to improve the living standards of his community members.[32] Over 4,100 volunteers from India, East Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East were spread out over 200 towns and cities.[33] The 5-day upliftment drive consisted of free renovation of houses, planting of trees and shrubs, upgrading sanitation of community properties and grounds, building playground and sports facilities, dental hygiene and vaccination camps, a sports day and a community breakfast on New Year's Day.[34]

In September 2019, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin met with President Maithripala Sirisena of Sri Lanka and donated LKR 10 million (US$53,553) to National Kidney Fund of Sri Lanka to enhance facilities and improve welfare and preventive care for patients impacted by chronic kidney disease.[35]

On 20 Rabi' al-Thani 1439H (7 January 2018 AD), he appointed Syedi Qasim Hakimuddin as Mazoon and Syedi Ali Asgar Kalimuddin as Mukasir in Surat. [101]

On 27 Jumada al-Thani 1440H (4 March 2019 AD), he appointed Syedi Ali Asgar Kalimuddin as Mazoon and Syedi Qaidjoher Ezzuddin as Mukasir in Ahmedabad.

Succession

The 52nd Da'i al-Mutlaq of the Dawoodi Bohras, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, died on 17 January 2014.[102] As per the tenets of the faith[103] each predecessor is required to nominate his successor during his lifetime.[104][105] His death sparked a succession crisis[106] where a rival emerged for the title of 53rd D?'? al-Mutlaq: against Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, Khuzaima Qutbuddin[107] of the Dawoodi Bohra.

Dai Burhanuddin and his son Muffadal Saifuddin

The challenge created a divide in the community[108] with the majority aligning with Mufaddal Saifuddin[109][110] and a smaller number aligned with Khuzaima Qutbuddin.[111] Mufaddal Saifuddin assumed control of the Dawoodi Bohra administration and community infrastructure. In March 2014, Khuzaima Qutbuddin filed civil suit 337/2014 in the Bombay High Court against Mufaddal Saifuddin in which he sought a declaration that he was validly appointed as the 53rd Dai al-Mutlaq[112][113]. The UK Charity Commission has taken the view "that His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin is the current incumbent of the office of Dai al-Mutlaq."[114]
