Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

During the 23 years of Muhammad's time as a prophet, the verses of the Quran were memorized as they were revealed, and about 42 scribes wrote the verses on different materials such as paper, cloth, bone fragments and leather. In ancient times, literacy was a skill that few people had and Muhammad h...

Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

Again missing the point . The Quran in its current recording was done by Khalifa. It did not come down in a book form or order of ayats as we memorize or read. This is fact. Jesus SAW was not preaching prophet hood in the cradle. The Imam Bohra believe is a concept created recently. The 2 year old ...

Question is not evil, the answers are good or bad. I asked do Bohra and Shia agree the book they read in paper form was under direction of Khalifa Umar.

Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

Now, I have a strong reason to believe that SBM is either a non-bohra or he/she has literally no knowledge about this community’s past. Raja Bharmal and Raja Tarmal probably existed before the birth of 21st Imam. They were in no capacity dais. First dai to be a descendant of Indian people or maybe ...

Taaweel-ud-Daim & Asaas-ul-Taweel in English

Does anyone know if these books:
Taaweel-ud-Daim
Asaas-ul-Taweel

by Syedna Qazi Noman were ever translated in English and if so, anyone has them?

If not, would anyone know where to get these books from in any language so that I could commission a translation in english..

thanks!

Very good writeup, kseeker. It is possible that nass did not happen on S. Abdul Qadir Najmuddin. However, it is highly unlikely. It is far more likely that the nass happened but that the senior mashaaikh did not accept it, at least in their hearts. They wielded great power and influence at that poi...
