Summary of Quaid e Millat's prayer on 28th Muharram
"O, the pilgrims of Urse Makhdoomi! Raise not only your hands for prayer but also bend your hearts in love and submission to Allah in this Mawlana Ahmad Ashraf Hall today. O Allah! We seek your help and guidance for good actions, Show us right path and forgive our known and unknown sins. O Moula! We are repentant on our great and small sins and sincerely seek your forgiveness, and vow not to commit sin any more. O Allah! Today bestow on us that Faizan which you bestow in Arafat on 9th Dhul hijjah on Hujjaje Keram (reverd pilgrims); you are the most merciful, mercy on us; you are the greatest kind, show your kindness on us. O Allah! These are slaves of your beloved, Hadrat Makhdoom Simnani (Radi Allahu anhu) Whom they have made their intercessor to you to seek your blessings and kindness.
Addressing Hadrat Makhdoom Simnani, he says. "O Ashraf! Look at these afflicted, tortured and embarrassed men who have come from different corners of the world with firm belief that they will not return empty handed; they had been waiting for this day that on the occasion of your Urs, their all difficulties will be removed and will get their hearty aims, O Ashraf! O my helper! If you will not give them, where will they go?, who is their helper except you; your generosity and bounties are unlimited, give them more than their demand. O Ashraf! I salute your bounty, I salute your kindness, I salute your bounty. Munificence and I salute your caress.
O Ashraf! Look at these helpless and dejected persons raising their hands with tearful eyes. Today your sea of kindness is gushing, mercy on their deplorable condition; endow for the sake of your beloved Hadrat Noorul Ain (Radi Allahu anhu), Hadrat Sayyad Hasan Ashraf (Radi Allahu anhu) Hadrat Qulandar Baksh, Hadrat Mansab Ali and Ala'Hadrat Ashrafi Mian (Radi Allahu anhu); these insane and beggars demand the Sadqua (boon) of Hadrat Makhdoom al Mashaikh (Radi Allahu anhu) 'O Makhdoom! Look at your Janashin, who has put on the khirquah (Patched garment), raising his hand. O Ashraf! Your Janashin is a precious asset for us, grant him long life and May Allah perpetuate his shadow on us for a long time. O the followers of Silsila Ashrafia ! make sure that Hadrat Makhdoom Semnani will not deprive you today ; you will return with your desires fulfilled . Now Say Ya Ashraf, Ya Ashraf, Ya Ashraf.
In fact, it is the climax of Urse Makhdoomi. He who attended this prayer got their aims and he who missed it lost the golden opportunity. Impression of the prayers of Huzoor Quad-E-Millat Wali Ahad Janashin is so appealing to heart and mind that whole Hall weeps bitterly repainting on their sins and making vow not to commit sin any more."
