Re: Claims of Imam-hood?

And if you call it a matter of "faith" then why isn't the Bohras' faith as pure as yours? Belief in the face of reasonable doubt?

Re: Claims of Imam-hood?

So if Mufaddal Saifuddin (or the Aga Khan) can convince a whole group of pretty intelligent, hardworking people into believing that he is the Imam, then why is it so hard to believe that Muhammad could convince conflicted Arabs in an unfairly stratified society that he was the true Prophet of God, h...

Re: Forcing Bohras to keep beard (dari)

KQ's website, fatemidawat.com, has a new update that includes a scholarly work about Ali written by KQ's daughter. If you want unbiased information on the key Islamic figures, this is probably a good place to start; it has been edited by other experts, so despite the fact that Qutbuddin is a (corrup...

Re: Degradation of AMIL-Muallim characters

Interesting post... not a surprise that these people can stoop so low. Seeing as law enforcement is useless (due to bribes and connections) against some of these people, perhaps a cleansing is in order. Someone here with money and connections (in a position of power) could get it done.
