Re: Syedna "The Gau Mata of Dawoodi Bohras"

Yes, your above writeup shows that you are awaal chela and member of Ustadi Bohras. Instead of the da'i you have your own "Gau Mata of Ustadi Bohras", i.e. Shaikh Ahmak One, Shaikh Ahmak Two, Shaikh Ahmak Three and Shaikh Ahmak Four. Not sure who your current Gau Mata is as you seem hell-b...

Re: Ismah- Is Dai al Mutlaq in Daur As Satr Infallible?

Reading some of the responses from AbdeYamani and Rashida so-called Behnsaheba one concludes that the choices between Kothari Mafia and Ustadi Borhas (a new term I am coining to describe chelas of Four Ustads thrown out of the Jamia) are that either accept tyranny from (a) Da'i and his family and Ko...

My friend AbdeYamani. Thanks for clarifying your position. I understand you better now. The point you raised of an imam in the progeny of the Prophet is an interesting one. In theory. However, I hope you agree there is no manifest imam at present. Also, there is no need that just because you were bo...
