Re: Have a Thought in This

Br. Guest 786 : In answer to your question about laga, it is not laga but lagat which in english means fare, like buying a ticket to go somewhere. In Many jamaats they have lagats for everything you do, for example child's chetti, aqiqa, misaq, wedding, death or any niyaz jamans. The lagat goes into...

Re: Toronto Bohri Jamaat Paying RIBA

Br. Agnostic: Your secxond strategy doesn't work, I tried it here in Texas and it back fired. your home-ownership and financing of it is a matter of public record in the city hall and any one can check it, all they need is your name and address and check it out. In my case, the Aamil had it in for m...

Re: Have a Thought in This

Please all of us let us not get emotional and think through the systematic draining of money from people to Dawat-e-Hadiyah (USA) which legally transfers it to Dawat-e-Hadiyah(India) and there it is withdrawan for all kinds of abuse familial use. Recently ...

Re: Blind Followers

Hello All: I am one of those blind followers of the Dai , but I hate all the money -mongering people surrounding him. Each one trying to outdo the other in raising funds so they can get even closer to the inner circle. Brother Kalim had mentioned the incident in his hometown of Pune about the Nasim-...

Re: I am sick of 40 days of Ayyamut taabudaat

I am sick of 40 days of Ayyamut taabudaat

This totally drains all the mumineen of their energies, finances, and valuable time from other meaningful activities. by the time his birthday comes everyone is ...

Re: I want to join Bohra Community

Dear Brother Phushparaj: Don't listen to all the cynics here. Why don't you start with the friends that you associate with and are impressed with. Like all religions and their administration, Dawoodi Bohra is an excellent religion but a lot of greed has crept in among the clergy and priests due to l...

Re: heavy-handedness of khidmatguzars

No, I didn't do $1052 salaam, I did what I wanted to do. In Nikah majlis he accepted the salaam thinking it was $1052, but the following day he returned it via the jamaat secretary. Which I accepted back. But I know now I will be socially boycotted. They never announce publicly about the social boyc...
