25th Dai Al-Mutlaq Syedna Jalal Shamshuddin Bin Maula Hasan(R.A)
Wafat(Death) : 16th Rabi-Ul-Akhar 975 AH.
Dai Al-Mutlaq Syedna Jalal Shamsuddin (R.A) succeeded the 24th Dai Syedna Yusuf Najmuddin (R.A) on Arsh-Ud-Dawat.
Syedna Jalal (R.A)
wanted to have a spacious house built for himself at Sarangpur but the
insufficient funds at his disposal did not warrant its completion and was
left incomplete. When Miya Mamaji Shaikh Mujal came
to know of this, he undertook the responsibility of its completion under
his supervision and attention.
The enemies of Dawat started spreading
ill-faith in Yemen; consequently Syedna Yusuf (R.A) was forced to spend
thousands of rupees for the cause of Dawat. Debts mounted on Syedna Yusuf
Najmuddin (R.A) for twenty years continuously. Syedna Jalal (R.A) managed
to remit to Yemen, funds collected from India to facilitate Syedna Jalal's
(R.A) mission there.
When Syedna Yusuf (R.A)
declared Nass in favor of Syedna Jalal (R.A) in Yemen, Syedna Jalal (R.A)
was in Ahmedabad. When the Hudud in Yemen were called upon to stand
witness to the Nass, some of the Mumineen from India present in Yemen in
Hazrat Imamiyah suggested to Syedna Yusuf Najmuddin (R.A) that Syedna
Jalal (R.A) was seriously ill at the time they left India for Yemen and it
was doubtful he could have survived this illness. Syedna Yusuf Najmuddin
(R.A) declared emphatically, "I have faith that by 'Tayeed'(spiritual
contact) of Imam-Uz-Zaman, my 'Nass'(handing over of the seat of Dawat to
the rightful successor- next Dai) will reach Syedna Jalal (R.A) and Syedna
Jalal (R.A) will be Dai-Al-Mutlaq on Arsh-Ud-Dawat". Syedna Jalal (R.A)
recieved the nass and handed it over to Syedna Dawood bin Ajab Shah (R.A).
A pristine, marble mausoleum was dedicated to his memory and inaugurated by Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin(T.U.S) in the year 1401.
