What is iftaar sharaf

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.

They just add fancy words to simple terminology to make anything done by syedna or Mansoos appear impressive. In my opinion, it helps to build up the reverence that people have for them; in other words, it's just a very clever way of deepening enslavement.

These people might be very unscrupulous, but the operation is pretty magnificent... Probably one of the most profitable businesses in the world.

In the topsy tirvey world of Dawoodi Bohras when we give them the sharaf by giving ziafat or iftar party, it is termed as them giving us the sharaf.
we not only give them hefty salaam but kiss their hand and feet but also feed their smug faces and they have the gall to call it as them giving us the sharaf,
What if all collectively decided not to receive this sharaf and save all our money by not incurring these un-necessary expenses, where does their sharaf goes??

bhai smb,

this is reverse psychology. they screw you and call it 'sharaf'. for instance they can slap you and call it 'laafa sharaf'. or as explained by me on another thread, they can use your toilet and label it as having given you 'toilet sharaf' and charge YOU a FAKHIR RAKAM for it.

so they can barge into your house, raid your kitchen, empty your fridge and larder, gorge themselves silly on all the just cooked delicious food and then term it 'ziyafat sharaf', after taking a tagda salaam of 27 lakhs from you and leaving your family hungry!!!

conclusion: the abde community has been turned into donkeys and they have all been given "himaar (gadheda) sharaf".
