Dawoodi Bohras in the media

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.

I was pleasantly amazed. Is this really going on. If this is so then atlanta mumineen are completely in the dark. Local amil is proud that on three occassions he took misaak for Muffy. The goonda committee that was formed in the time of the rogue suleman bhaisaheb are hiding their black faces. They carried out all the tactics of a mafia to collect huge amounts of money for masjid and karze hassanat scheme. The result being; there is no masjid or no karze hasanat scheme. With the karze hasanat money the goonda committee purchased houses with cash for their own goonda members. Bhaisaheb makes trips to India and u.k. with his family like it was his plane. The so called markaz is nothing more than an office space which has been rented from a hindu patel and moula, moula brainwashed abdes have to come up with huge amounts for rent. Most of the intelligent bohris do not come and are least afraid.
hope changes take place soon.

What is at Stake

At stake now is not just the issue of succession and title of 53rd Dai Ul Mutlaq – given to the one who heads the community but also of the various trusts and Wakfs. These trusts and Waks together hold onto the properties of the business community that run into several thousands of crores not just in India but across the world. These properties include the palace – Saifee Mahal, in which the spiritual leader of the community resides.

State honours, Tricolour for Syedna : What for ?

A right to information activist (RTI) Manoranjan Roy has complained against Maharashtra state government for giving state funeral with police honour, covering dead body with national flag of one-million strong Dawoodi Bohra community’s 52nd spiritual head, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin. Roy has threatened that if government failed to take appropriate action on responsible person, he will be left with no option, but to knock the door of High Court.

Proposed Redmond mosque faces opposition over growth

If the Anjuman-e-Burhani mosque is ever built near Microsoft and Nintendo offices in Redmond, the small Dawoodi Bohra sect of Islam would have its first spiritual and community center in the Seattle metro area.

Its members — many of whom are information-technology professionals living and working in Redmond or Sammamish — say the location is perfect. Since they bought the 1.2-acre property in 2010, they have overcome several hurdles to transform the once-dilapidated site, says member Hozaifa Cassubhai, 36.

They’ve paid thousands of dollars to remove more than 500 tons of garbage, including abandoned cars from the site. Mosque planners have gone through more than two years of a back-and-forth design-review process with the city. They’ve arranged to have overflow parking and shuttle service on special occasions with a nearby Veterans of Foreign Wars chapter’s lot.

This month the membership of about 150 people will face what they hope is the last hurdle: easing the concerns of nearby residents already weary from the crush of traffic associated with a growing Eastside population.

More than 300 people — many opposed to the mosque that would be built east of Highway 520 on Northeast 51st Street — last week packed a community meeting organized by the city and are expected to attend another meeting next Wednesday. The next day, the city’s Design Review Board may approve permits for the more-than-20,000-square-foot building.

Among them will be Sam Weirbach, 63, who, like many others opposed to the mosque’s construction, says he doesn’t have a problem with Islam — he just wants the city to take growing traffic more seriously.

“I don’t care whether it’s a Muslim, Catholic, Baptist or Mormon church — it doesn’t matter,” said Weirbach, who would like to see houses built on the lot instead. “I’m saying a building like that where you can’t predict the traffic concerns five, 10 years down the road shouldn’t go there, and neither should something like an apartment building.”

Cassubhai said mosque planners have been working with the city to mitigate traffic and parking impacts in the area and will continue to do so. But he expects that on most days the mosque would not draw much traffic in the first place because the Anjuman-e-Burhani membership in the entire Seattle metro area is so small.

He expects that parking for 30 to 40 vehicles — 100 if they double-park — should be more than enough for most services throughout the year. For rare occasions when cultural events draw the entire community, he said they’ve planned ahead for overflow parking at the VFW lot.

“Some of their concerns are bigger issues that are not specific to our property, and a lot of the same issues would potentially exist without us,” Cassubhai said of those opposed to the mosque’s construction. “These are logistical concerns that are valid, though, and need to be part of the conversation.”

According to the city’s presentation at last week’s meeting, the mosque’s traffic is expected to happen mostly during off-peak hours. The city anticipated a maximum of 21 additional trips during peak hours.

The city declined to make planners or other staff members available for interviews about the mosque — which would be the city’s third — but did release a statement describing the city’s intentions to celebrate its growing diversity.

Cassubhai said that Dawoodi Bohra is a sub-sect of Shia Islam and that a large part of its membership is of Indian or Pakistani descent. The sub-sect makes up a small portion of Muslims throughout the world and less than 2 percent of the Seattle metro area’s entire Muslim population.

As a husband and father of an 18-month-old daughter, Cassubhai said he’s hoping members don’t have to wait much longer to have a place of their own to share traditions.

“It’s nice to be able to pass some of that onto the next generation and have a space that is not only a spiritual center, but a community center — the value of that is immeasurable.”

That's your interpretation. When one performs "Sajdah" for ibadah is totally different than "Sajdah" of Taa't. Intention is the key here.
In Surah Yusuf, Sajdah was performed to Nabi Yusuf by his brothers. Sajdah to Adam Nabi by Angles, In fatemid history as well, ppl used to do Sajdah to Imam of the time. This is most misinterpreted concept. However its unfortunately used as a tool by kothar for the power and control and for others its criticism and unislamic.

@habeel

The sajdas which bohras do are called sajda e ubodeeyat , i.e sajda of obedience (Ita'at), which is nothing but a sajda of worship as obedience is to Allah and hes messenger alone.

Moreover the sajda of ta'zeem is also declared haram in shariat e Islam and the sajda which abdes do is not even sajda - tazeem but sajda of abdee'at . Which certainly without any doubt whatsoever makes them Kafir.

truth is babaji dont even know name of Mufaddal bhai sahab, he tweeted "I met muzzaffar bhai sahab", and he also says there are crores of people around the world followind syedna sahab, while truth is their are only 12 lacs bohra in whole world.he was just there to beg few more votes for BJP which he is endorsing these days.
LOL...why would babaji convert...MS ancestors were all like babaji centuries ago and later converted to our sect and now impose their authority on weak and underpriviliged bohras and if people raise their voice against the tax system and other devious activities by kothar, rulers outcast them. Do you feel many of practices that we follow or forced to follow by these kothar are islamic?
