Re: Ismah- Is Dai al Mutlaq in Daur As Satr Infallible?

Mohd Asad does translate 4:83 with an AND. The harf used is waw harf ataf. So I think AND is more accurate.

And yes you may claim that the translation can say AND, but then that would not be accurate. It has already been established that it is possible to disagree with those in authority.

Re: Ismah- Is Dai al Mutlaq in Daur As Satr Infallible?

Now, the second half of the verse may indicate that ultimately there are only two real sources of infallible knowledge: Allah and the Prophet, i.e. in practice the Qu'ran and the Prophetic hadith. However, in the same surah there is another verse (Q 4:83) in which it says that "... if they had...

Thanks bro Biradar, There is actually clear unambiguous evidence from the Quran itself that no one other that the Prophet (ﷺ) of Allah is infallible and this evidence is in the ayah often quoted by the Bohra clergy to demonstrate their own authority and infallibility. Ayah 4:59. But read the full ay...

Why even care about what the scriptures say? Let's suppose the books say that the Dai is infallible, does it make him so?

Re: Sticky: Dawoodi Bohra's Succession of Dai Case in Mumbai High Court

The same applies for Dai al-Mutlaq; if the Imam has gone into satr then his representatives, the Dais (once again by Fatimid theology) must also carry on through nass until when the Imam returns from satr. If you are saying that the Imams and Dais have failed to establish a clear nass, then by logi...

They also strategically isolated Syedna especially towards the end of his reign, preventing true reports from every reaching him.

. Note that as Walker mentions, the very fact of performing nass is a validation of an Imam. Hence, an Imam can not pass away without designating a successor.
