Ashara 1441 - Colombo

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.

just a word of caution. This is a buddhist country and they hate muslims. No international conference or seminar ever can happen in this country, for the simple reason that there is always fighting going on between the two factions. that is Tamil and Sengalese.
A religious person will do what he is told no matter what is right, whereas a spiritual person will do what is right no matter what he is told.
Not sure what you are talking about...Ashara was held in Sri Lanka a few times during Burhanuddin Moula's zamaan. I was present and it was a great experience. Sinhalese businesses benefited a lot from all the money spent by Bohras - from the lowliest tuk-tuk driver to the big hotel owners and people were feeling very friendly towards us as a result.

Post bombing, sentiment towards Muslims may have soured but my guess is that people will still welcome the economic activity.

Omg I cant believe this. So now we dont even have Imam Hussain as the main theme of Muharram.

According to above document this Muharram is all about PR for srilanka and making it great again.

Theme name they have chose is #webelieve in srilanka.

Wtf?

Wowowowowow

Believe it or not I saw this coming few years back. Dont be surprise when bohra muharram will be a music concert just like agha khanis does in Muharram every year.

I am repeatedly stating bohra dai follows exact step of agha khan since ages.

hi

Since I am following all the bohra events from last many years, I have acknowledged that bohra dai tends to follow agha khan policies.

Agha khan started taking over all the properties in his name so did the bohra dai
Agha khan started abolishing Quran studies, so did the bohra dai and then banned Quran reading with understanding
Agha khan started claiming himself a god on earth, bohra dai doing same.

some years back aghakhanis had proposed music concert in London, I hope bohras dont follow it.

it seems there is a quite resemblance in their way of operating and controlling masses.

Please stop false stories
As a matter of fact, under Current Aga Khan, he has asked his followers to start reading Namaz, Do Fasts and read Quran. Every event arranged by Aga Khanis start with recitation of Quran.

What you know about Bohras, I can flick away in a milli second with my two fingers. You come here looking for scraps of information and increasingly people hesitate to share with you. What you THINK you know is a whole bunch of baseless, out of context titbits made inaccurately whole by your imagination and imaginary corroborating stories from non existent aunties and a possibly imaginary/unfortunate wife!!

Dear Admin..what post is this..? just mentions " by Hanuman". please refrain from posting such silly posts.we talk and praise Ahlebait here no ram, ravan and hanuman. i guess there is another splinter group from bohras following hindu gods..
I don’t know about splinter groups among Bohras but there is definitely one retarded member on this forum with no sense of humor, who loves to talk to himself and has 41 names..... and who is probably still looking for more information on that free flight....
Let me correct you, its 61, not 41

Huge change in the menu, no 52 different dishes on pehli raat night now, simple food as usual. this is a great step towards uniformity.

Good step

Today's vaaz on different types of stones and their healing powers. No where in the quraan have I read about it. It may have been in some hadees , but I hope bohras do not take it seriously and stop taking their prescription medicines' for what ever ailment they are suffering from.
Would not be at all surprised, if fanatic bohras go about wearing necklaces of different stones around their neck like Sai baba thinking they would be healed since their moula said wearing stones will heal them.

It looks like you are upset with the music and you are upset with how "you think" we (nizaris) commemorate Muharram.

Muharram is a month of sadness for us aga khanis. Usually, any marriages, music concerts, parties do not take place in the month of Muharram. Muharram is a month of contemplation for us. We may not do any chest-beating mattam parade as some other Shias do, but we are in spirit with all those Shias or Sunnis who follow different customs and traditions of remembering the tragic event. There is no music concert in Muharram.

Like many Muslim societies, Music is a part of the Ismaili culture too. I do understand that in some part of the world Music and Muslim don't go together. But if you look at the cultural heritage of Islam, music plays an important role. One of the most prominent and influential theologians and jurists of Sunni Islam (Al-Ghazali) once said - "whoever says that all music is forbidden, let him also claim that the songs of birds are prohibited as well"

Leader of Lofty Stature is so unwell that he could not risk doing any live relay broadcast this year?

Due to his difficulty breathing, he cannot last for a full length waaz and he cannot lead namaaz either.

I bet he feels like an iron fist rammed into his chest and deflated his lungs quite a bit. I imagine the velvet glove did not do much to cushion the blow.
