Amatullah Aaisaheba, who was born in Surat on 15th Zilhaj 1338 Hijri (18-08-1921) and brought up in a family devoted to the Islamic way of life; and who was the third in the line of six children born to Ateka Baisaheba and Abdulhusain Bhaisaheb Saifuddin , a family that traces its lineage to Syedna Abdulqadir Najmuddin(AQ) and Syedna Qutbuddin Shaheed(AQ), and whose misaq was taken at the age of fourteen; was chosen at a very tender age by the 51st Dai-al-Mutlaq Syedna Taher Saifuddin(AQ) for His son and successor Syedna (TUS).

On 27th Zilqada 1354 Hijri corresponding to 19th February,1936, when Syedna(TUS) was of 21 years age and Amatullah Aaisaheba was at 16, the wedding of Syedna was solemnised in Surat with customary grandeur. The celebrations that were held to mark the occasion were grand and unprecedented and were named "Al-Milak al-Agar". A wedding so grand had never before been witnessed in Surat. Syedna Taher Saifuddin(AQ) has described the event in his personal diary stating, thus :

"The marriage function surpassed in magnificence and joy the marriages of all previous Doat. Followers from all parts of India and abroad came as guests to Surat for the occasion and elaborate arrangements were made by Dai al-Mutlaq, for their stay."

"The premises of Jamea Saifiyah, where the ceremonies were held, wore the image of a bride, glittering in the light shed by myriad points of illumination. Those who loved us and those who were high in office shared with us the great joy of the occasion."

It is not a matter of coincidence but a well destined by Allah Subhanahu and thoughtfully followed by Syedna Taher Saifuddin(AQ) that Syedna(TUS) had a wife with the name of Amataullah Aaisaheba who had been 5th one by such name to become aaqila (wife) of Al-Dai-al-Mutlaq holding office sofar. The others had been :-

Being 1st Amatullah Aaisaheba had been aaqila of 43rd Dai Syedna Abde Ali Saifuddin(RA) son of Syedi Jiwanjee Saheb(AQ) resting in peace at Jamnagar (16 Jumadil Awwal 1215).

Being 2nd Amatullah Aaisaheba had been aaqila of 45th Dai Syedna Taiyab Zainuddin(RA) resting in peace at Surat(07 Ramadan 1247).

Being 3rd Amatullah Aaisaheba had been aaqila of 46th Dai Syedna Mohd. Badruddin(RA) resting in peace at Surat. She was Shahzadi of  Syedna Taiyab Zainuddin(RA) (23 Jumadil Awwal 1255).

Being 4th Amatullah Aaisaheba had been aaqila of 49th Dai Syedna  Mohammed Burhanuddin(RA) and respected mother of Syedna Taher Saifuddin(RA) and grand mother of our Aqa Maula(TUS) resting in peace at Bombay (04 Zilqad 1312).

Aaisaheba remained by His Holiness side at all times and devoted every hour, every minute of her 60 years of union in serving His Holiness with dedication of mind and heart; word and deed. In 1397 H, on the occasion of His Milad Mubarak, when Shahzada Huzefa Bhaisaheb, Idris Bhaisaheb, Malikul Ashtar Bhaisaheb Nikah were performed, His Holiness conferred the title of Hadiyaat upon Ammatullah Aaisaheba. She was a constant companion of His Holiness, accompanying Him tirelessly on His long and distant travels. She was never to complain, but to serve faithfully and selflessly, to provide to arrange and to organize for His Holiness care and comfort. The breath of spring in Qasr-e-Burhani that beautified the entire house-hold and the Dawat and whose words were so which worked wonders, sometimes soothing; sometime solving but always resulting in spiritual gratification and whose last act of devotion was to dedicate a golden SHAHIDANA for the qabr mubarak of the 32nd Dai-al-Mutlaq Syedna Qutubuddin Shaheed(AQ); had a heart attack on Lailat-ul-Khamees taking her away from us to her heavenly abode on 12th Rabiul Awwal 1415 H (18-08-1994).

Needless to mention, 12th Rabiul Awwal is the celebration occasion of Milad-un-Nabi,SA when the janaza namaz was held followed by ziyarat, whereafter Syedna(TUS) presided over the Milad-un-Nabi majlis in true Fatimi tradition duly donned with a golden rimmed dupattah (symbol of celebration) and a discourse on Rasulullah(SA) culminating with matam on Imam Husain(AS).

Truly, to conduct a majlis, so, with the janaza of aaqila kept alongside was beyond mortal strength, of which the assembled mumineen were witness, mourning and marvelling at their Maula(TUS)s strength in grief and drawing their own solace from Imam Husains (AS) matam, absorbing the lesson through live example given by Aqa Maula that every mumin should express shukr and stick to sabr ; be it the occasion of joy or of sorrow. Let us, we mumineen, beseech Allah Taala to endown Busaheba with Shafaat of Aal-e-Mohammed & Doat Mutlaqeen and to shower on her His choicest blessing and to favour her with Aali Darajat in Jannat-ul-firdaus. Aameen ! Let us also pray before Allah Subhanahu to accord our beloved Aqa Maula(TUS) a long and healthy life for bestowing the gift of Aala Hidayat to enable us to finish the safar of this physical plane successfully. Aameen !

With the blessings of the Almighty, Ammatullah Aaisaheba has made our Aqa Maula(TUS) a proud father of 7 sons and 3 daughters and naturally, with numerous grand children. Seven

Shahzadas are named, thus;

Shahzada Syedi Qaidjohar Bhaisaheb Ezzuddin.

Shahzada Syedi Mufaddal Bhaisaheb Saifuddin.

Shahzada Syedi Malekul Ashtar Bhaisaheb Shujauddin.

Shahzada Syedi Huzefa Bhaisaheb Mohiyuddin.

Shahzada Syedi Idris Bhaisaheb Badruddin.

Shahzada Syedi Qusay Bhaisaheb Vajihuddin.

Shahzada Syedi Ammar Bhaisaheb Jamaluddin.

Being most satisfied with the khidmat of Dawat with utmost dedication by Syedna(TUS), Syedna Taher Saifuddin(RA) conferred upon His son, the titles of TAJ UL DAWAH UT TAIYEBA AND QURRATUL AEN IMAM UL MUTLAQEEN in 1359 H and the title of UMDATUL ULEMAAL MOHIDEEN in 1361 Hijri.
