Re: Muffy celeberate the birthday!!!

Fulan Bhai, prior to the declaration by Syedna Qutbuddin, we were not posting nor reading this forum. Many thinking families were discussing and questioning the nass. One other person I know also did not give misaaq ever since they inserted the mansoos bit in it. So perhaps you lapped up the whole n...

Re: Bohri SMS Duniya

Also I doubt that a Rolex for the Shehzada's son falls into any of these categories..." a fifth of it is for Allah and for the Messenger and for the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer. 8/41”

Re: Bohri SMS Duniya

Dude Fulan, take a break. We were faulting your definition of zakat not Khumus. And like I said, SKQ is difficult to understand not impossible. You said you understood "nothing." I was challenging that. The subtitles make it easier to understand. And I am sorry you got pushed down. No one should be ...

Re: Bohri SMS Duniya

Also, it appears from your post that you are ignorant not only about SKQ and his family but also about basic shariat. Read a little bit about what zakat is. It is a wealth tax not an income tax. Also there is no double taxation. So once you pay zakat on your savings for the year, you do not have to ...

Re: Bohri SMS Duniya

Bhai Fulan, our family has done Moula's ziyafat not once but twice, Alhamdolillah. I have never once been forced to do sajda to Mazoon saheb and I did understand his waaz. It was a matter of paying attention and getting used to his impediment. It was definitely hard but definitely not impossible. Bu...

Re: Bohri SMS Duniya

Okay lets assume they stopped, wrongly. Why did Maula never say anything to the contrary, that mumineen should do sajdo for him? He could have said it in waaz, taken out the so called 'corrupted' middle man. but maula didn't. Why did Moula RA not appoint MS in public when he had faculty of speech? ...

Re: Khuzema Qutbuddin (and related topics)

A mumin is one who has an "aqeedat" which he holds firm. That firm aqeeda is that "For not a split second is the zameen void of hujjat of Khuda ta who is Haq" -> which implies no Imam will pass on without appointing his janasheen who is his hamshaan. In zaman of Satr the same holds for the Dai mutl...

Re: Khuzema Qutbuddin (and related topics)

Continuing previous post, MS, in stark contrast, strikes me as seriously lacking in intelligence and somewhat devoid of integrity. His administration is openly and without restraint, taking every opportunity to raise cash. Every large organization needs funds, but the acceleration of the fund collec...

Re: Khuzema Qutbuddin (and related topics)

The thing is even KQ doesn't have solid proof of nass. On what basis can one believe him. On the other hand, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin's nass has been declared by Burhanuddin Maula's sons as they were witness. Now Allah knows better. I am presently going by that. Even I don't feel much spiritual co...

Re: Why No one Walks the Talk

Why is there so much apathy among the clearly disgruntled Bohras? Why are they not taking action to change their community life? If it because it is just easier to show up for the latest Muffy movie, sit in a dark room and read your email/surf the web on your phone rather than actually do something ...

Re: Why No one Walks the Talk

I hope that most came to Mumbai during the last 40 days because of their love for Burhanuddin Moula, but I am sure that many came because it was a 'farmaan' and their aamil did not want his report to look bad. These people who can't afford frequent trips, might have preferred to come at a later dat...

Re: Khuzema Qutbuddin (and related topics)

think_for_yourself: A very well written post! The majority of Bohras are destined to wallow in their beliefs whatever comes. They are basically a low-abiding majority, subservient, pious in their own way, not worldly, not very well read and resigned to their lot. 51, 52, 53a and 53b all have a trac...

Re: Khuzema Qutbuddin (and related topics)

Where is KQS no news of him or has given up or is he going to join muffy gang again. Yes no one from KQ gang is active now. May be they have gone underground or going back to other camp. Please Tasneempati (incidentally - my sympathies for Tasneem) no one has gone underground. We are forging ahead....

Re: Khuzema Qutbuddin (and related topics)

I have recently started reading posts on this forum. To give some background, we considered ourselves mukhlis mumineen and devout followers of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA and his teachings. We are US citizens and responsible members of our community. However in the couple years preceding SMB RA w...

Re: The legacy of Sayedna Mohammed Burhanuddin

The lasting legacy of the 52nd Dai will be that he provided a solid proof that Dai's are not Infallible. SKQ side: When the Nass on Muffy was made public, SKQ should have gone to the hospital where SMB was and confront him in private or in the presence of witnesses as to what happened to the Nass S...
