Ismaili Brother converted
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
It is indeed the greatest Mercy of Allah Subhanah that He has had Mercy on you and us, and guided us out of the darkness of ignorance to the light and Truth of Islam. May Allah keep you and us on faith, and give us all the tawfeeq to do deeds that are pleasing to Him.
After Allah has guided you to the Truth of Islam, it indeed becomes your duty to help and invite your Ismaili brethren to the Truth of the Quran and Sunnah. If Allah Wills, this service and zest of yours to invite your brothers to Islam, will be a huge source of earning the Pleasure and Good Will of our Merciful Lord.
Brother, we are willing to help you in any which way we can to help in the Cause of Allah; and we will consider ourselves fortunate if we are able to do anything to help invite our Ismaili brethren to the fold of True Islam. Most of the brothers and sisters who volunteer their time and efforts on this forum were formerly Dawoodi Bohras, until Allah enveloped us in His Mercy, and guided us to Islam. The Dawoodi Bohras are a sub-sect of the Shiate-Fatimid-Ismaili-Mustaali school of thought. Although we are not personally aware of the exact aqeedah and baatin or hidden ways of the Ismaili school of thought, our whole team is at your disposal to help you in any which way you can use us and our experience. What we need to do is present our mis-guided brethren with the Truth from the Quran and Sunnah; and with the help of Allah, the falsehood will, Insha Allah, disappear by itself!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verse 81:And declare, The Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. And falsehood is a thing that must by its nature, vanish!
There are many brothers who have come out of the Ismaili faith and accepted Islam; and are actively involved in the propagation of the Truth from the Quran and Sunnah to their Ismaili brethren. If you like, we could get you in touch with these good brothers. If you could give us your country of location, we could try and connect you to the brothers who are working in the field of inviting their Ismaili brethren to Islam.
My beloved brother in Islam, we are very keen to help you in this noble cause and are open to any and all forms of co-operation that you may require from us. Our only objective is the Pleasure and Good Will of our Lord; and Allah Himself has promised to help those who help in His Cause. We pray that Allah accept your and our humble and weak efforts in the propagation of His Deen of Truth; have mercy on us; forgive us our sins; and save us all from the torment of the Hell Fire.
We are anxiously waiting to hear from you.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
