Re: Lift Opening Ceremony

Re: Big scam in Kuwait by Aamil & Sheikh Asgar Obri & Party

atlanta is no different. fund for mosque were collected on three occasions and vanished as soon as the local amil was transferred. big wajebaats and wasteful spending is the cry and life story of nearly every bohri.

Re: Request for the translation of the Misaaq

since the authority of the imam precedes the authority of the dai and since the agakhani imam is a direct descendant of moula Ali; then should the bohras pay homage to the imam aga Khan?
