Re: Why They Hate Syedi Mazoon Saheb - www.zahirbatin.com

Taizoon lives in a cuckoo land. He says we went public with this twadry tiff in the hope of getting support from Bohras. He expects brain-dead, priest-ridden fools to support him and his dubious cause? He and his feuding family is responsible for turning Bohras into a herd bleeting sheep. Now he wan...

Re: Why They Hate Syedi Mazoon Saheb - www.zahirbatin.com

Porus is right - this is soap opera. The "royal" power struggle is playing out in public now. The decadent kothar is getting ridiculous by the day - who says the royals are not changing with times. Washing their dirty linen in public. No matter comes out as winner, nothing will change for the Bohra ...

Re: What is purpose of life ?

In the cosmic scheme of things, planet Earth is a mere blip - a tiny planet in one of the thousands of solar systems. That the Creator, the Absolute One (or whatever you call it) who has created this infinite universe should actually care about life on a pimple of a planet is a delusion. Life on ear...

Re: "The lion shall lay down with the lamb."

The example of white/black man you give indicates that as humans we are making progress, generally speaking. With time we are fine-tuning our values and attitudes towards one another and towards the world we live in. The Quran lays down the law on many things, big and small. But pls understand that ...

Re: Syedana’s vision

Khairan,
This is typical of mullahs. they will take round and round in circles without going anywhere. they will confuse and befuddle you until you get fed up and give up.

Re: SAYEDNA coming again to Tanzania for an Historical hunt

Is it any surprise that mullah who have no qualms about making slaves out of decent human beings should have any second-thoughts about killing animals for sport? Serendipity, you are right, this is the strongest possible indictment. But do our mullahs care? They have become so shameless, not to ment...

Re: Syedana’s vision

Qiyam, you say... Your comment is very similar to those given to the Prophet by the unbelieving pagans of Arabia. I say: The Sayedna is no Prophet and neither is this the seventh century - the age of jahilia. And comparing me to pagans is no argument. Tinking people always have and will question ort...

Re: Syedana’s vision

Now from the sublime to the ridiculous: Sayedna's vision (the subject of this thread). What do devotees find in it other than cheap thrills of magic and miracle. These are nothing but characteristics of a peasant society. And the talk of vision and 'gaib na jannaar' twaddle is nothing but cheap and ...

Re: Syedana’s vision

Allah is a meta-relaity. Muslim is right, understanding him trhough anthropomorphic perspective is problematic, not to mention the widespread acceptance of his maleness. Mullahs try in vain (if we ignore their ulterior motive for a moment) to explain God and his ways. To 'understand' and 'know' the ...

Re: Syedana’s vision

Here's a sufi verse (I quote from memory): jo aql mein gir gaya woh la-intiha kyun kar hua jo samajh mein aa gaya woh khuda kyun kar hua The human mind is finite. It cannot know everything. Thank God for that ;-) But this is not the problem. The problem begins when scriptures and its diehard interpr...

Re: Syedana’s vision

There is a reason why mullahs want to include ishq (emotion) in the concept of Aql (reason). Their defence of this argument is ideological and has little to do with philosophy. Mullahs use the hybrid concept of Aql (which includes emotion) to justify people's beleif in all kinds of irrationalities a...

Re: Syedana’s vision

porus, Do you expect this priest-ridden community to understand your plea for transcendental, unconditional love? Mired in money and material pleasures, what do these mullahs and their followers know about love or even religion. Religion for them is an instrument and no more. They quote the text of ...
