Contrast between Prophet and his so-called slaves

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.

Contrast between Prophet and his so-called slaves

What a Contrast !!
The Prophet Simple & Modest but his Mamlooks roll in Outrageous Luxuries & Revelries.

Since Syedna Taher Saifuddin Saheb's time every Syedna in office started addressing himself as "Mumlook-e-Aal-e-Mohammad" (Humble servant/slave of peoples of the house of the Mohammad]. [Malik means Owner or Master and Mumlook means servant or slave in Arabic language.)
The holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (pbuh) despite being master had never been greedy of wealth and power and never override on anyone. He practiced what he preached. His life, both private and public, is an excellent example of simplicity, modesty and honesty.
1. The holy Prophet's house was modest, built of clay bricks, palm leaves and trunks.
2. The holy Prophet's food was simple like that of the poor. He ate very little and only ate a simple meal. The holy Prophet would never fill his stomach. He used to bind stones on his stomach to appease his hunger.
3. The holy Prophet slept on a simple mattress on the floor.
4. The holy Prophet would sweep the house, stitch his own clothes, fix his own sandals,
5. The holy Prophet used to water camels, milk goats.
6. The holy Prophet rarely had more than one set of clothes, which he washed himself.
7. The holy Prophet accepted the invitation of slaves and the widows even if it was presented with a cup of milk.
8. The holy Prophet participated in the ceremony of marriage as well as funerals.
9. The holy Prophet' mostly walked barefoot, and sometimes without a cap or turban on his head.
10. All recorded words and actions show the holy Prophet Mohammad as a man of great gentleness, kindness, humility, good humor and excellent common sense. He was the most modest, without pride,
11. The holy Prophet language was the most eloquent without prolongation of his speech.
12. The holy Prophet was the finest embodiment of modesty, and deeply abhorred arrogance and haughtiness.
13. Almost all of holy Prophet's companions in the early days were poor and oppressed people, as he was the champion of the downtrodden and the defender of the deprived masses.
14. If he holy Prophet was riding and somebody wished to accompany him on foot, he would ask him either to mount behind, and if the man declined out of respect, he would ask him to go ahead and await him at the fixed place, because he did not like the sight of people following him on foot, while he himself was mounted.

15. So modest was the Prophet that he hated to see people rising to their feet when he entered an assembly. And on entering he used to sit at the nearest vacant spot, so that his companions might not think that he was sporting an air of superiority over them. If some man shook hands with him, he would not unclasp his hand till the other did it first. This is how Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) taught us best of morals and excellent manners. By living a simple and ordinary life and treating everybody alike with courtesy and respect, he was able to spread the light of Islam. His immaculate personality and lofty character, coupled with his honesty and wisdom, attracted multitudes of people towards truth and justice.

Hazrat Ali ibne Abi Talib and other Ahle Bayet followed the holy Prophet vigorously, and lived a life of utmost simplicity and modesty.
But the last two Syednas and the present self-claimed Syedna, who call themselves Mumlook-e-Ale-Mohamad, Dai of Ali, Dai of Husain and now Dai of Allah, spend their lives in splendid palaces spread over acres of land with massive halls, sprawling gardens, car parks, water fountains. vast common kitchen, numbers of the non Bohra the Bohra kidmatguzars round the clock, numbers of drivers, gardeners and watchmen.. Syedna calls himself Sultan of Bohra and his children as princes (shehzadas) and princesses (shehzadis) and his family as "royal family". They all live in outrageous luxury and take pleasure in outrageous revelries every now and then. They enjoy delicious Jamans and that too at the expense of others. They wear laundry-washed dazzling white dresses and change them number of time in a day. they walk on carpets with their shoes on and want someone to catch their hands while they walk. They always sit on high throne and want that others should stand with folded hands. Allah says in the Quran, "Do not walk on the surface of the earth proudly, God dislikes vain and proud person." (XXI-II) (D). But these Syednas were proud and looking round in self administration.
These Syednas have innovated may customs like Qadambosi, Deedar, Hadiyat, Mafsuhiyat, Ziyafat etc. which are all with a price-tag but are sold as Sharaf, ahsan and karam of Syedna.
Hence it will not be wrong to say that the Syednas since Syedna Taher Saifuddin Saheb have diverted from the Islamic practices and they are not followers of the Prophet of Islam and his Ahle-Bayet. They are not Muslim. They are Munafiqs (hypocrites).
Their only mission is to fool the Bohras and extort as much money from them as possible. They are out rightly corrupt and promoting corruption. They neither contribute nor allow Bohras to contribute in the welfare of the community and humanity at large.
They are Dais only for name sake. It is useless to hope for any spiritual profit from them. Such Dais are Sin and burden over the community. "Iblis" was an angel; but when he committed sin, he became Satan.
