When the restoration of Al Jame Al Anwar began, a magnificent discovery was made. A piece of one of the masjid's slates (lawhat) was found. Piece by piece, in the rubble or in museums around the world, mumineen found the entire slate. Finding and procuring each piece was an arduous task, but with the blessings, doa, and nazr of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA - the Ilaahi Magnet - the task was achieved. The inscription on first piece found was 'م بامر'. Burhanuddin Maula RA's signature of 'م ب' is well known; so the inscription of 'م ب' and 'امر' (order) was clear indication that it was Burhanuddin Maula RA's duty to gather the pieces of Imam Hakim'slawhat, just as it was his duty to gather and unite mumineen, take their hands, and guide them to Jannat.
The final, assembled slate was mounted above the main gate of Al Jame Al Anwar. In 1401 H, over 10,000 mumineen from all over the world flocked to Maula RA's hazrat for the iftitah of Al Jame Al Anwar and Ashara Mubaraka. Maula RA initiated the tradition of uniting mumineen for the majalis of Imam Husain AS. Every year since, thousands of mumineen flock to Maula's hazrat to eat fruits of knowledge, to hear Imam Husain's dai tell the heart-wrenching story of Karbala and lament Imam Husain AS!
Syedna Moaiyyid Al Shirazi stated: اظهرو النوحه والعويل
It is no coincidence that the word 'نوحه' means 'to gather and wail;' 'to unite your soul and body - your body's every organ' to grieve for Imam Husain AS's hardships.
The root of unity is becoming one with our Maula TUS. Each year, Maula TUS gathers each and every mumin, just as Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA gathered and identified each piece of Imam Hakim's lawhat. Irrespective of our citizenship, profession, age, and background, Imam Husain AS's gham and mohabbatunites us all. Only our Maula TUS has the strength to do so.
