Re: Bohra Muharram 2016 and related topics

Percy Shelley's "Ozymandias" I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions r...

Re: Zahir Batin Fitnat : A New Summary

Syedna Abdeali Saifuddin, the 43rd da'i had appointed his brother as his mansoos. Unfortunately, his brother (and mansoos) passed away a short while after the appointment. This was a major setback to S. Abdeali Saifuddin, if the mansoos is declared based on ilhaam from the hidden imam, then the abo...

Re: Invitation to Ismaili Tayyebi scholars

Where are the books to do an independent study of bohra sect? Who can do scholarly work on it apart from the "scholars" in Jamea? Very cleverly they took away all books, manuscripts & probably burnt it if it went against their schemes. the only book that is required to judge the bohra dais is the q...
