Rasulallah (SA) had prophesied the martyrdaom of Syedna Qutbuddin al-Shaheed. His father (Syedna Dawood bin Qutubshah (RA)) had also foretold of his shahaadat when Molana Qutbuddin was still infant.
Molana ascended the takht of D`awat, upheld its tenets, raising aloft its banner – no less than twenty two Mumineen mohallas were vibrant at this time. The enemies of D`awat were unable to stomach seeing these shaanaat.
These enemies, namely the likes of Qasim Aandhlo, Abdul Ghavii and Aurangzeb( (l.a.) conspired to murder Syedna Qutbuddin. Syedna Qutbuddin was executed under the charge of being a ‘raafzi’ (one who has deviated from the path of Islam), a charge which Molana refuted by saying that; far from being a ‘raafzi’ – he was upon the essence of the ‘Sunnah’. Molana chose martyrdom over admittance to such a charge.
