Re: 2 Rakat Namaz

The ayat I quoted does not define the Creator. It simply states that Allah is the creator of the sun and the moon. Weill, the ayat also states that do sujdah to "allah" who created them (the sun and the moon). Now if this "allah" is fathomless, unperceivable, unknown and unseen, then "sajdah" to su...

Re: 2 Rakat Namaz

In a cultish twist to baatin, Bohras are being told that every ruku and every sujood is really for Imam or Dai. This horrendous lie can be quite easily dismissed by clear reading of ayat 41:37, which states: 'Wa min ayati-hi al-layl wa an-nahaar, wa ash-shams wa al-qamar. La tasjudoo li ash-shams w...

I understand that hunting in Kenya was banned in 1977 but I believe it was recently modified and regularized by the Kenyan Wildlife Society, if I am not mistaken (that's why I requested you to google).

Re: bohra syedna extends invitation to all other spiritual heads

I think the title of this thread where it states "spiritual heads" (bohra syedna extends invitation to all other spiritual heads) must be stressed/modified as "religious heads"; make sense? I believe there's a remarkable difference between spirituality and religiosity, wouldn't you agree?
