Re: Why you call yourself Progressive Dawoodi Bohras

Bhai Humsafar, Seeker 110, and others in the reform movement .. I understand that implicitly SKQ has to be responsible for what has gone on for the past 50 years as he was the mazoom for the past 50 years. And I understand as you and others (Bohra85 ??, on another thread) have mentioned that you all...

Re: How come "Islam zinda hota hai karabala ke baad"?

Since childhood I was always listening to these cliche "Islam zinda hota hai karabala ke baad" , but I did not find a single rational reason as to how the martydom of Imam Hussain lead to the savings of teachings of Islam? How is that possible when the tragedy killed the very person who was the emb...

Re: How come "Islam zinda hota hai karabala ke baad"?

guys,freebohra may be just asking a question. No need to call him names just for that. freebohra, I had written-up a small piece (a while back) explaining how the martyardom of Imam Husain helped Islam. I will dig it up, re-edit it and post it here. Inshallah it will be useful. It is my understandin...

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

A few thoughts on the 19th Rajab Nass video. All the reference in that video is at time 26 minutes and about 50 seconds, when the claim is that Moula said “Mufaddal bhai ne Nass nu taaj”. However, at time 20:40 to 20:45, we heard Moiz BS said “Moula farmawe che ke shezada Muffadal ne, nass nu taj eh...

Re: London hostpital nass video and audio

It is possible that Syedna Qutubuddin camp may not be saying anything as they may be advised by the legal team – as the court case is going on. Just a guess of mine. And if the news that Muffadal Maula lawyers have “resigned” themselves are accurate, it may be that they were not happy about showing ...

Re: London hostpital nass video and audio

I saw the video today at the Masjid. The 1st question is: If they had this video and others, why not show it 3 years back and minimize the split in the community? Did they not have an obligation to do that? The timing of it? Why now? And there was nothing in terms of time stamp that this was on 3rd ...

by Fakhruddinsuratwala on Tue May 06, 2014 7:37 am There are a few among your father’s followers who have natured grudges against some hudood of Burhanuddin Moula RA and some who were looking for a religion of convenience, for those, you do offer them the options to practice that religion of conveni...

Re: Quran translation

Also consider Abdullah Yusuf Ali's translation. The commentary and footnotes (i found them very helpful) in understanding the meaning of the verses of the Holy Quran.


The other suggestion mentioned that you should look at multiple translations to get a "consensus view" is also a very good one.

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

The Judge asked in this case about the opinion of the community. Short of a secret ballot, I am wondering if there is any credible way to get an estimate of the supporters of (or, people who have a preference for) SKQ? I believe this is becoming an issue of “who will bell the cat”? • Today in a conv...

Re: Mufaddal Saifuddin (and related topics)

My question to Mazoom saheb's side would be: us ordinary folks would not even dream of access to Burhanuddin Moula. But you must be having it, at least sometime. During let us say 2000 to 2010 timeframe, Did Mazzon-e-dawat go to Burhannuddin Moula and say: I have been sidelined, you know people don’...
