Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

Biradar However, the Ismailis are not unique in this and Sufis (both Sunni and Shi'a) also interpret the Qu'ran and shariaa in similar symbolic manner Br Biradar If we accept Ismailis and Sufi's version of Interpretation of Quran and still consider them Muslims then why the Muslim world calls Ahmed...

Re: “Daaim ul Islam”, Vol I & II, Ebooks as a Gift to Generations.

It is morally wrong to prevent poor women from getting jobs to support their family. It is morally wrong to tell women they should sit in corner of the house, and only cook, sew, make topis, cook rotis and not pursue ambitious career goals. It is morally wrong to tell husbands to throw out their wi...

Re: Origin of Tayyibi Da'wah after Seclusion of Fatimid Imam(as)

In his biography of his father, Ja'far bin Mansur al-Yaman says that in the absence of the Imam the dawa is established by three ranks: da'i mutlaq, ma'dhun al-mutlaq and ma'dhun al-mashur (i.e. the mukasir). In such times the Imam, Bab, hujjas and da'i al-balagh accompany the Imam into seclusion. ...

Re: Origin of Tayyibi Da'wah after Seclusion of Fatimid Imam(as)

The origin of the dawaah in Yemen, which eventually led to the formation of the Tayyebi dawah is long and complex. It did not originate with the letter of Imam Aamir to M. Hurratul Maleka, but much, much before that. In fact, the original goal of the Imams, before they established the empire in Egy...
