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.

Texas is known as The Lone Star State. These days though, Texas has become a boroj where a very shining star has made its home, and its bright light is spreading all over the world and illuminating the heavens and the earth. Quran-e-Majeed, Furqane-Hamid says that we have given you the stars to shine your paths in the dead of the night, and we have created milestones for you so you would know that the fifty- second Dai-ul-Mutlaq Moulana Mohammed Burhanuddin is the shining star that has transformed Houston into the focus of the mumineen these days. Guests from the U.S. and other foreign countries have started to arrive in Houston from the fifteenth of Zilhajj. Mumineen heard the bushra that Aqa Moula T.U.S. had bestowed barakaat to the mumineen of the U.S. and that Eid-e-Ghadeer-e-Khum will be celebrated in Houston. <p>When Shazada Malek-ul-Ashtar Bhaisaheb did araz to Moula for Ashara Mubaraka, he said very emphatically, " Moula, now we will not let you go," even Moula was moved by his araz. So, during the bayan, Moula said," I will do matam with you and you will do matam with me, Inshallah." As soon as mumineen heard this, they congratulated each other for the bushra and the Houston Jamaat got busy preparing for Ashara Mubaraka. <p>In around 1997 Shahzada Malek-ul-Ashtar Bhaisaheb made Houston his second home. As everyone knows Aqa Maula's each Shahzada has a unique mission and a unique way of dealing with masses. Shahzada Malek-ul-Ashtar Bhaisaheb is a "people's person". One feels extremely comfortable talking to him. His constant smile and humor gets you when your guards are down and you suddenly forget your problems and start smiling with him. His habit of shaking a mumineen's shoulder is famous, and when he does not shake someone from his shoulder, the person wonders why, what happened, am I not close to him anymore? The entire U.S.A. was looking at him to fulfill their dreams of Barakat-e-Ashura. <p>Shahzada Malek-ul-Ashtar Bhaisaheb has gathered mumineen of the U.S.A. and brought them to Aqa Maula's Qadam Mubarak. We the mumineen of the U.S.A. applaud his and Houston jamaat's tremendous efforts in making this impossible event into a grand success. If anyone of the momeneen want to know how to sacrifice " Jaan and Maal" for Maula T.U.S., they have to take a lesson from his efforts. May Allah Taala Subhanahu give him more and more occasions to do Maula's Khidmat and we mumineen must always join him in his effort and support our community completely and whole-heartedly. <p>
