Since our Imam Hussein days and Waaz are virtual, of course it gives me the opportunity to watch them. I feel sad that our dais have brought us to these state of so many divisions.
I realize it is power and money that has tempted all of them to vie for power. Also the Kothars who have also used these opportunity to make money for themselves.
It is sad, because our dawat has so many spiritual qualities and have steadfastly helped us to remain steadfast with our iman, our faith in Islam. After all Islam and it's history has been our life blood.
I must say that some progressive like the Mamujees in Kenya were money hungry themselves and believed that their wealth and money could enable them to fight our Dais. The children of the Seyedna Taher Saifuddin no doubt stirred up a lot of trouble because they would not let their egos be challenged.
But when I hear Seyedna Muhammad Burhanuddin lament the past trial and tribulations, and his eloquence, I no doubt get swayed to the dawat again and again.
There were too many challenges that he faced, but he was after all the best spiritual leader we had during his life. No question that his enemies were no match for his intellect. Only if they had learned to reconcile and not fight Seyedna Burhannuddin whom I still believe was a reasonable and just spiritual leader and the rich and wealthy because they challenged him, he had to use the iron fist. But the Kothar did not help either.
What I want to say is, my two cents of what ever you may claim it to be, is that Seyedna Burhanuddin as the dai had the right to change the nass if he chose during his life time. The Seyedna Khozema should not claim that once Nass had been made, it can not be revoked. I am beginning to believe that is Baloney. The spiritual dai can change the nass if in his wisdom, he believes another person could lead the dawat better.
This fight in the courts in now just an intellectual exercise, as the British would say, a fight for the "Lords". If Seyedna Burhanudding wanted to change the Nass, why should he not be able to do it.
If the religion was governed by Seyedna Mufaddal and left the adminsitration to another branch, I would continue to follow the dawat of Seyedna Mufaddal.
I am just to frustrated with the economic power in the hands of the dai. Let him have the spiritual power and let the administration be run by educated branch of his choosing who would be accountable to the Bohra community.
