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

Things to be done by fatemi dawat : 1) accept Burhanuddin was faulty person he let go many un islamic practices in his tenure. (including different coloured safai chitthi). 2) accept you guys have no contact with Imam uz zamaan and you have been fooling people in the name of Imam. 3) you are not da...

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

To help us with knowledge and understanding what are others view on this i.e. not just fatimids, what about mainstream Sunnis and non fatimids shias? I also learnt that muffadal went to alazhar university in Cairo where he was educated by mainstream Sunnis ulama. Does be acknowledge their views? Re...

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

. Note that as Walker mentions, the very fact of performing nass is a validation of an Imam. Hence, an Imam can not pass away without designating a successor. (BTW: This does not mean, as Ahmed Ali Raj in a lecture implied, that an imam can't die if he has not appointed a successor. It simply means...

Re: Ghadeer a khum

.Allah has not sent any prophet but that he celebrated this day as Eid and was aware of its sanctity. There is no evidence of the prophet (saw) having celebrated this day as eid. There are only two Eids and one is not allowed to fast on those days. Qur'an: اليوم اكملت لكم دينكم واتممت عليكم نعمتي و...

Re: Ghadeer a khum

The day of Gadeer -e- khum is a day of great significance. Coming from a Bohra perspective (which is not a bunch of rubbish), the reasons as to why we fast on this Eid and why not on the other two Eid's is expounded in books of taweel . If (and this is likely) you reply saying that's just a load of ...

Re: Phaal kholawu

I think lots of people here have severely misinterpreted phaal. Let us clarify/define the practise first: 1) It is most often the process of opening the Qur'an and interpreting the ayah that first draws your eye. This is Bohra tradition and is done by people who are trained and have raza (authority ...

Re: Shouting Mola Mola is allowed?

Dear Ateka, The quran actually provides the difference between a mumin and a muslim. A mumin is one who believes. A mumin is also a muslim. A muslim who is not a mumin is one who obeys every command of Allah and his prophet but he has doubts in his heart. So, a believer is a mumin. Hello, anjami. I...

Re: who is representative of Imam zainul abedin?

you are asking bohras to think, that is above and beyond their religious ability,. They are strictly commanded by M.S. to do as I say, not to do as I do The brainwashing of MS followers is deep rooted. It seems that all religion and faith for them today is shouting their chant of 'Mawla mawla etc' ...

Re: Esoteric sermons of Maulana Ali

While an educated secular person will agree with most of what you wrote, you are really digressing from Muslim Orthodoxy. The word taawil is an Arabic word which simply translates to "interpretation". It is commonly used in court proceedings and many a judge comes up with his "taawil". The word as ...
