Mufaddal Saifuddin - Terrible Outcome of 51st Dai's policies

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.

Mufaddal Saifuddin - Terrible Outcome of 51st Dai's policies
We find a spit in the community today. Dawoodi Bohras are divided in to Mufaddal and Qutbi groups. The amount of hatred that Mufaddal has generated into his followers makes it impossible to unite them again. Right now the majority seems to be with Mufaddal who is bent upon destroying the character of the Dawat and the community due to his incompetent leadership. The community is passing through a crises which is compelling many conscious Bohras to leave the fold. The root of this crises were planted by late Sayedna Taher Saifuddin a century ago. Let us understand this.
From the first Dai-ul-Mutlaq Syedna Zoeb bin Musa (1032) till 50th Dai Syedna Abdullah Badruddin (1915) for 900 years of Dawat-e-Hadiyah, the community remained morally and spiritually strong and united as its Dais were not greedy, power-hungry and exploitative. The Dais were simple-living and devoted to community welfare. They were inspired by the noble life-style of Ahle-Bayt (a.s.). They stayed in small houses, like their ordinary followers. They earned their livelihood by hard manual work. They ate simple food. They were not dependent of offerings and slams. They never thought of making Dawat the monopoly of their family.
They chose the best and the most learned and pious member from the community irrespective of his financial standing, trained him and his nomination was publicly declared in an assembly of the faithful.
Thus even the descendants of the first Hindu coverts from Raja Sidhraj Jaisingh (Bharmal)'s family were patronized and called to Yemen and trained. One Mulla Raj was raised to the degree in Dawat and his son Syedna Ismailji Badruddin was rose to the post of Dai. After him 34th, 35th, 36th, 37th, 38th, 41st, 42nd, 43rd and 46th Dais that is nine other members of Bharmal's family were raised to the status of a Dai.
This clearly shows that earlier Dais never hesitated to recognize the superior qualifications of the outside ordinary Bohras against their own children.
However after the death of 46th Dai Syedna Badruddin Saheb, the last of the Rajput family of Gujarat, the present dynastic rule commenced. 46th Dai had suddenly died at a young age apparently from the effect of food poisoning two days before appointment and public declaration of his successor. 47th Dai Syedna Abdul Qadir Najmuddin, who was not Mazoon but Mukasir, claimed the Dai-ship.
Obviously a controversy arose and for the first time the belief in Divine character of Dawate-Hadiya had slackened as they suspected the chain of succession to Dais hereafter had broken and Dais were there merely for Nizamat or management-ship of the affairs of the Dawat. The community was split into what was named as "Najmi Bohras and Mahdibag-walla Bohras.
The Syedna Najmuddin had to deal this controversial situation very tactfully. In order to create opinion in his favour he increased the numbers of Mashaikhs without any test of their qualifications, quality and character. He did so profusely that the degree, honour and the title of Shaikh lost its original value amongst the learned. Earlier this degree of Shaikh was given to chosen few who had acquired required education, who knew Arabic and who had gone through the long training and had proved their merits. He conferred the title of Shaikh on undeserving person who happened to be rich or influential. Thus the real Mushaikhs lost their value and hence influence in the crowd of the ignorant Mashaikhs. After him his grandson Sayedna Taher Saifuddin and great grandson, Sayedna Mohammad Burhanuddin continued this practice. Syedna Najmuddin appointed his brother Syedna Hushamuddin as his successor and thus dictated a policy of succession in his family.
Incidentally Syedna Najmuddin was the grandfather of 51st Dai Syedna Taher Saifuddin, who in order to establish his own financial empire further damaged the character of Dawat and the community both.
It was Syedna Taher Saifuddin who wanted the world to believe that great wealth is the sign of Allah's favour.
He started boasting that Allah has favoured him with enormous wealth, several wives, dozens of children, royal luxury life and public glory. ultimately he started calling himself Elahul-Ard (God on earth). Thus excessive attachment to material wealth urged him to commit sins, atrocities to gain more and more wealth. He most mercilessly usurped the property of the community by humiliating and torturing physically and mentally the original trustees and owners of the properties. He rationalized his greed by closing his mind and heart to the needs and rights of his followers. The became a monster who got the body of Sir Adamji Peerbhoy's daughter-in-law dug up from the grave and thrown it naked out of the Sir Adamji's private plot.
The damage done to Dawat and Community by Sayedna Taher Saifuddin:-
1, He taught and demonstrated to his family members how to loot innocent and devote Bohras and live luxuriously and lavishly on their wealth.
2. How to usurp wealth and property from Bohras and live like Sultan and princes at their expenses, without doing any hard work.
3. To achieve this it is essential to keep the Bohra as your slaves or bonded labourers. Bohras should feel proud and consider their privilege to perform Sajda before you, they consider their privilege to do your Qadambosi, they should concider their privilege to stand in front of you with folded hands, they should feel proud and consider their previllege to bow down in your salutation before you, they should feel proud and consider their privilege to offer you Ziyafats with lavish foods, They should spend their money in doing so but they should remain obliged and thankful to you your favour. Do not allow them even these things free of charge, imposed huge Salams for your favour.
4. You don't have to waste your time in acquiring religious and secular education and training, material wealth can buy anything. Pay money and get best speech (bayans) written down for you, pay and get good books written down for you and publish them in your name as your writings and earn literary genius status.
5. The Bohras and Muslims revere in high steem Hazrat Mohammad (s.a.), Hazrat Ali (a.s.), Hazrat Fatima Zehra (a.s.), Imam Hasan (a.s.) and Imam Husain (a.s.) and call them as Panjatan-e-Pak, who inspite having huge Public Treasury (Baitul-Mall) at thei command lived in simplicity and poverty. You don't be foolish, just use their name to hide your luxury. Do not allow any one to ask you to account for money you have collected from them.
6. Do ot allow Bohras, Jamats or Amil to interfere in your action. Do whatever you want to do and get whatever you want to get done from Bohras, Jamats and Amils. Don't allow them to think for themselves. smash their thinking power.
7. Do't allow Bohras to have their choice. You decide what dresses they should wear and what they should not wear, you should decide what food they eat and what they should not eat, You should decide what books and newspaper they should read and what they should not read, with whom they should keep relation with and with whome they should not keep relation. You should decide whom to allow to enter masjid and mazar and whome not to allow. Impose your decisions and do not allow Bohras to think for them.
8. I have already imposed "Wajebat" and "Sabil" and have convinced the gullible Bohras that they are must for their welfare though it is all for your benefit. You should decide the rate according to your need and insist Amils and Jamats to collect it from Bohras forcefully.
9. I did four marriages and produced 28 children, so marry as many wives that you can and produce as many children as you like. Bohras will bear the cost of their luxrious lifestyle, you do not have to bother.
In the process Syedna's brats became useless extravagant, parasites and bloodsucker. They started considering themselves as Princes and Princesses and started behaving arrogantly.
The community gradually became Sayedna-centric and insensitive religious fanatic ready to attack their own relatives, cut nose and throat at slightest provocation. Today the world looks at the Dawoodi Bohra Community as an uncivilized society.
His own product his son, Yusuf Najmuddin was a born arrogant and ruthless, who dominated Syedna Mohammad Burhanuddin and made him commit atrocities which he may have regretted later on. Yusuf Najmuddin had so much terrorized the community and his brother Syedna Burhanuddin that the later could not openly appoint his successor in his long life time,
No one knew Mufaddal except that he was one of the sons of Syedna Burhanuddin Saheb. But Qaid Joher who wanted his control over the huge wealth left behind by his father and grandfather plus the control on the constant source of collection, ie, the regular collections from the Bohras. The evil disciple of the wicket and ruthless Yusuf Najmuddin made his brother, Mufaddal Saifuddin 53rd Dai. That created a faction in the community. Being an idiot, Mufaddal accepted the high post, though he was a school dropout, drunkard and rowdy.
Drunk with power and his command over huge unaccounted wealth made Mufaddal more absurd. Suddenly he assumed several titles like honorary degree of doctorate from Karachi University and from Alighar Muslim University and Chancellorship by paying several crores of rupees to the universities, its officials and politicians. He even tried to get Global Peace Award, which proved bogus and fake. But he had np shame. He even floated fake miracles.
Mufaddal came on scene as Dai or Religious and Spiritual head of a community, but he took up the temporary issues like saving sparrows, sweeping and cleaning campaign, drug campaign, Tiffin service just for publicity and now Solidarity campaign. These are all the efforts done by the common Bohras for which he wants to take credits.
What has he done to improve the religious and spiritual lives of Bohras? In fact he has brought down the moral and ethics of the community. The abusive language used against his own uncle, teacher and Mazoon-e-Dawat of his father, celebrating his death with fire-crackers and burning his effigy.
For the publicity of his fake magnanimity he personally went to offer his condolence on Alvia Bohra Syedna Ziyauddin's death and send chaddar to Sunni Muslim saint, Khuwaja Moinuddin Chisti. Being idiot he forgot the negative publicity he has received by cursing, abusing and celebrating his own uncle's death.
He most foolishly refused Sayedi Khuzema Qutbuddin offer to Debate and Decide mutually who is rightful successor of Syedna Burhanuddin. Not only that he cursed Sayedi Khuzaima and called him "Shaitan. when he saw that he is becoming unpopular, he licked his own spittle. He said in a open assembly of Bohras that " My father has taught me not have any ill-feeling for anybody. Not to hate any one. Please go tell my uncle, Khuzaima Qutbuddin that I have nothing against him, I am ready to embarrass him." But then he has not expressed his condolence till today on the death of same uncle of his.
This is the idiotic shameless character of Syedna Taher Saifuddin's third generation and degeneration of the community.

Research shows us that approximately, only 30 percent of all family-owned businesses survive into the second generation and only 12 percent will survive into the third generation. Surprisingly, only 3 percent of all family businesses operate at the fourth generation and beyond.

This applies to most empires and dynasties. We are witnessing the collapse lead by MS.

I disagree with this point

2. How to usurp wealth and property from Bohras and live like Sultan and princes at their expenses, without doing any hard work.

well, making money with crook ways is actually more hard than making it in a legal way.
