authorities created any difficulty, Syedna Safiyuddin (R.A) was called
upon to counter it. He displayed patience and perseverance while facing
trials and difficulties. Syedna Dawood Bin QutubShah (R.A) appointed Him
as 'Vazeer' during the 'fitnat'(subterfuge) of laeen Suleman. Syedna
Safiyuddin (R.A) shielded Syedna Dawood Bin Qutubshah (R.A) with his
patience, tolerance and way with words against the enemy.
the prince of Akbar was appointed the governor of Ahmedabad. The enemies
made false allegations, bribed the governor and invited Syedna Safiyuddin
(R.A) and his learned Hudud to the governer's residence and imprisoned
them at the time of Magrib Namaz. Hudud started reciting Quran with
'lahen'(loudly and in a rhthym). Syedna explained the meaning of
'Surah-Un-Nooh' and the other Aayaat. The Mughal Chuga Beg and the guards
were enslaved by this glory and started crying, but Shah Murad ordered to
keep all the Hudud in prison. Meanwhile, Syedna Dawood bin Qutubshah (R.A)
wrote in his own handwriting a Dua Mubarak which Rasullullah (S.A) had
recited during a critical time. Syedi Khoj Bin Malak (Q.S) reports that
all the prisoners, including himself, continued to recite these 'Dua'
after every Fajar and Isha Namaz. 15 prisoners were released by the
tyrant, but Syedna Safiyuddin (R.A), Maulai Ali Mohammed and Syedi Khoj
bin Malak remained imprisoned. Mumineen of Jalalpur (todays Jamalpur) used
to provide jaman and water to the imprisoned Hudud and wash their clothes
to enable them to pray Namaz. They did khidmat day and night. Syedna
preached to all these who came to the prison, to vanquish them in such a
way that they started weeping. He used to proclaim "We do not have the
treasures of the world which is transitory in any case. We possess the
treasures of knowledge and wisdom that are everlasting". Many miracles
like this were reported in the prison. Amir-ul-Mumineen Maulana Ali (S.A)
threatened the minister in a dream as a result of which the prisoners had
to be released.
Laeen Suleman sent one called Mukrami laeen to
Sidhpur. The Mumineen of Sidhpur came to Ahmedabad in Hazrat of Syedna
Shaikh Adam Safiyuddin (R.A) with folded hands, and did araz in hazrat
Aaliya that "this Mukrami has made all senseless and false talks. We
humbly request Syedna to kindly give us 'hidaayat'(right teachings)".
Syedna(RA) came to Sarangpur Masjid and called Mamji bin Ali as he was
from Sidhpur , challenged Mukrami that if you are right you may come to
Masjid. He never dared to appear. Syedna Shaikh Adam (R.A) waited from
Fajar Namaz till they forcefully brought Mukrami before Syedna. Syedna
ShaikhAdam (R.A) started Bayaan and from the Risaalaa of Syedna Dawood
(R.A) Nass was established. Mukrami could not defend his false allegations
and when Syedna went to perform Zohar and Asar Namaz, Mukrami fled. Syedna
called for Mukrami repeatedly till Magrib, but he did not appear. By this
time, Mumineen of Sidhpur were convinced that what Mukrami had said was
all false, they asked for pardon in Hazrat Aaliya for the sin committed by
even listening to Mukrami false allegations.
Inspite of physical
exertion and suffering, during the fitnat of laeen Suleman, Syedna Shaikh
Adam Safiyuddin (R.A) had shown tremendous courage and Jaan Fishani.
Syedna Shaikh Adam Safiyuddin (R.A) had appointed Syedna Zakiyuddin (R.A)-
the son of Syedna Dawood bin QutubShah (R.A)- as Mazoon and did 'Nass' on
him and informed Hudud in India and Yemen and also Syedna Ali bin Idris
(R.A), 30th Dai-Al-Mutlaq.
At the time of wafat, Syedna Shaikh Adam
Safiyuddin (R.A) renewed Nass on Syedna AbdulTaiyeb Zakiyuddin (R.A) on
7th Rajab-Ul-Asab 1030 AH.
