Re: The 4 Ustaads of Jamia

During his lifetime the Prophet was the sole interpreter of the Qur'an. People asked him questions and he answered. In fact, one may say that every word and action of the Prophet was a living interpretation of the Qur'an, the greatest and most authentic tafseer one can imagine. Immediately upon his ...

Re: The 4 Ustaads of Jamia

I have criticized SBM, SKQ and STF and their families for living very luxurious lifestyles on the backs of ordinary bohris. There is no doubt about this even amongst the most fanatical follower of Muffy, for example. I mean, no one can say they live a "simple" lifestyle and at the same time see them...

Re: The 4 Ustaads of Jamia

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 poin...

Re: Sticky: Dawoodi Bohra's Succession of Dai Case in Mumbai High Court

Only a person blinded by his ideology can think that Muffy is in any way spiritual. In fact, he is the opposite of spiritual, or, to describe it succinctly, he is Satanic or Iblisi. Hence, my name for Muffy and his cohorts is "Iblisi Toli". One can see this very easily: he is tremendously greedy and...

Unlike what say MohammedG and others claim, the reality is that amongst the main-stream Bohras, the support for FGM is probably very high.
