Haven't found it online. Doesn't look like it has been made available online.

I think there are 2 versions of the same, one which the Ismailis follow and the other which Bohras follow. However the TRUE version as per the Dai's doctrine is not available for public..... Aa taawil che.

I already said that I THINK there 2 versions which means I categorically said that Iam not sure and if Iam wrong then you are free to correct me.

Isn't it true that Bohras are kept away from reading the book ? It means that there is a so called version with the Dai and his henchmen which they believe to be true and which is not public.

The complete book is available on this website in Hindi:

http://dawoodi-bohras.com/pdfs/daim-hindi.pdf

Also, contrary to what GM says, the daim al-Islam is an open book, and available at many places. Obviously, the traditional reading of the book with a teacher would require permission, but one can just buy it, or loan a copy from the library (or read the Hindi translation above). There is no difference between the version publicly available, and the one used in Bohra seminaries. In fact, Ismaili Poonawala has done a careful survey of the available manuscripts, and according to his bibliography, there are only minor differences (this is not uncommon as often errors creep when texts like these are copied).
