Re: Inviting young Bohris 35 years and below

How does being a Bohri give you a special sense of identity (or does it)? Yes, I do. . Bohras means a peaceful and loving community. you always get treated warmly by outside world. They finds you friendly and flexible. Simple and honest. How do you participate in the community? Not always but I do,...

Re: Bank,post & mutualfund interest

I don't think Quran classifies interest. It says interest is haraam. People asked the prophet (saw) that it is the same as business where you produce something for x and sell it for x+y. Interest is the same they said. You give x and then ask for x+y. Allah says in the Quran that making money throu...
