Looking for some books (scans)

The one and only free public forum for Bohras. The focus of this forum is the reform movement, the Dawoodi Bohra faith and, of course, the corrupt priesthood. But the discussion is in no way restricted to the Bohras alone.

Dear brother Open-minded,
I had requested Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer to look for these books in Santacruz library, his reply is as follows:-
Dear Insaf,
All these books are in Arabic and no translation is available. Does this gentleman know Arabic? I had first two books Kitab al-Zeenah and Taj al-Aqaid but I will have to search for them. Even if I have I cannot lend these books If they can be zeroxed I will see. Is this gentleman in India or abroad?

If people like you can comprehend the gems of the Tajul-aqaaid, then there wouldn't have been any proggies...
Alas you guys are too dim witted.

I assumed a good proportion of Bohras are intelligent and logical , these books shows the source and reason of the creation of Bohra faith and would explain why we are asked to beleive in such mysterical ideology, its success and failures to win majority acceptance. I was praising it more as an artifact

If only more historical literature could be made avaialable widely without some Amil trying to mis-interprete .

For those mentioning Quran be mindful translations can be twisted to serve agendas too !

Yes, the gentleman knows Arabic, and is an Arab national. I would be really glad if you can get me the scans instead of the xerox.

Thanks for the link, but what I am looking for is a complete book (in Arabic) with referenced Quranic verses included, not just a summary.

I am an Anthropologist and I am in researching in this subject. Jonah Blank has done some extensive research with the current doctrine, what I am particularly interested in is the pre-Indian precept of the "Taiyabi" dawah.

I do not know if Jonah Blank's research was totally unbiased.Whatever he wrote about current Dai and administration, was orchestrated by Kothari handler like Qaidjohar Bhaisaheb Ezzuddin and Shabbir Bhaisaheb Nuruddin
Here is the quote "Without the cooperation of the dawat, no meaningful research could be conducted in the community"

Are there anyone in PDB thinking of getting Daim ul Islam translated in English and the other mentioned books.

I do not know for sure but I would guess there would be academics in India who are able to do these projects ? if there is need for support quantify and we can start throwng some cash in the ring for such a worthy cause ?

You can buy the english translations of Da'a'im al-Islam Vol I and II (by Ismaili Poonawala) from Amazon. There are no complete english translations of Ta'wil al-Da'a'im. The above website has an Hindi translation of the Da'a'im. Go to:

http://www.dawoodi-bohras.org.uk/education

and look there.
