Re: Matrimonial options for non believers

Dear Shabab, I am not sure who is munafiq and on what ground as there is no confession by anyone here of not believing in Imam. Name calling like munafiq, illiterate shows a tendency to insult. That reminds me of a quote by Red Haircrow: “You don’t have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold...

Matrimonial options for non believers

I have just noticed that the matrimonial page on this site has been removed. It was quite useful tool for finding like-minded partners. It must be a bit of a disappointment for many such lookers. Are there any alternate option or platform other than TNC (Taiseer un Nikah Committee) as I am sure ther...

scholarship trusts for bohra students

Salaams,

Just wondering if anyone knows if there is any scholarship trusts around to assist the bohra students in India. If so can you kindly share the details. I have a couple of needy children who are seeking the help.

Thanks.

..u can resist the above trap(mola ni Khushi), by claiming that u are willing to show them your full annual income and expense and calculate 2.5% and pay not a rupee more... Unfortunately this(2.5% calculation) doesn't work for salaried person as they argue you have to pay khumus which is 20%. In r...

There might be BATINI a lot more than we could imagine. Although my question is in the context of ZAHIRI.

Re: Hindutva Brigade Now Targets Dawoodi Bohras.

I will let the historians to answer that, if you have knowledge please share. In fact it would be interesting to know your views on the subject as Bohras are always taught that their ancestors converted to Bohraism out of their own free will although I have a different take on that. That's what Boh...

Re: Hindutva Brigade Now Targets Dawoodi Bohras.

Probably you are right, this is the hard time, similar to the one when our Brahmin ancestors faced when they were forced to embrace Islam. Do you mean to say that the Bohra Dais FORCED our Brahmin ancestors to embrace Islam ? I will let the historians to answer that, if you have knowledge please sh...

Orthodox moving into progressive

Dear fellows,

I wonder what if an orthodox bohra wants to quit jamaat and willing to join progressive group? Or progressive is a closed group where there is no room for such 'conversion'?

Thanks
