Coronavirus

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.

just thought i should revisit this post..

its been over a year now.

just when we thought thing were coming under control on India, it has gone from bad to worse.

When we clocked 97k+ cases last year in August or September, people were all like... its the end of the world

yesterday, when we clocked 170k cases, people are like... Meh, big deal

And to think last year, when the 21 day lockdown was announced, we all thought life will be back to normal on day 22

here we are, a year later, still in the same restrictions

Another Ramzan and Lailatul Qadr and Idd Khutba spent at home, another year of not going to meet friends and families.

Let us all pray to Allah that we never ever see conditions like this again, till the day of Qayamat
Ameen

If the Prophet SAW kept his sermons private how many people would have converted to Islam.

Reflect on your Bohra faith, how far have you drifted from Islam and Shia fundamentals. Do you even ever realise.

Less than 1 million who feel they are superior to 2 Billion. Wah wah

After calling us YouTube dawat, they are resorting to it themselves! Did someone not say imitation is the highest form of flattery?
There's no comparison.
The Majlises are being streamed *privately*, using login credentials. This is how relays of waaz have been done since Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin s time. This is nothing new.
Keyword: Private, not Public.

Whereas TB and the Qutbi Bohras continue to operate a YouTube Dawat, on a platform which is publicly accessible.
Keyword: Public, not private.

Proggies and others sects on this platform are free to debate whether it should be private or public.

However, anyone with an iota of understanding of *true* "Fatemi" philosophy will know that esteemed Duat of the past, including Syedna Moiyed Al Shirazi and Syedna Qadi Noman have stressed that "Majalis Al Hikmah" should remain private, to a select audience and not public. This is why they were held within the Imams Palace.
Again, keywords: Private, not Public.

If anyone is imitating, then it Taher Fakhruddin that's imitating dissenters in the history of Fatemi history (eg: Ja'far) that chose to make public what was deemed to be private. They went against these Fatemi principles.

Taher Fakhruddin and his Qutbi Bohras are following their footsteps. حذو النعل بالنعل

With all due respect Talib bhai, this is a false charge against Dawoodi-Bohras.

I admit that there is lot of things that Bohras do in the name of mohabbat for Syedna which can be misunderstood as shirk and gulu. But most do it, because of lack of knowledge, awareness and systematic mental conditioning by bohra priest.

But to say that they love him more than Allah Ta Aala or Nabi e Akram (SWA) is not true.

As per Bohra set of believes, path to Allah Ta'ala is through his Awliya and current Syedna is their representative.

Ground reality is different for bohras.
