References to Masjids in Quran sharif

We muslims and Bohras are used to masjids and mosques, as khuda Nu ghar, Baytullah, and so are most places of worships (Church, synagogues temples) referred to as House of God or something similar. Any references in the Quran that explain this description. Simple question but puzzling too. How did t...

Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

Well DCP, you have a point there. More questions come up, like how many people were surveyed. What defined literacy. Is it being able to read and write in at least one language? Or is it 10th standard or 5 th standard? I don't believe that in 1947 there was 100% literacy even in Bombay. I too wonder...

Mr saif53 - how about publishing Mufaddal Saifuddin bayans online, openly for anyone to hear, not having to login through ITS. At least that would be a fair comparison, right, comrade? At least the other side wouldn't be getting cut and paste, bootlegged versions of MS bayaans.
