Are Bohras true Muslims

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

READ IT! & GET IT!

This is to inform you all the Muslims that if u try put fingers on DAWOODI BOHRA COMMUNITY first please i request u to look in your own community. And try to find out the following things.

 

1) Do u do 30 Rozas in Ramadan or just from the first Roza wating for IDD and just finishing off on 29th day of Ramadan.

 

2) U people (excluding DAWOODI-BOHRAS & SHIAS) only wants to celebrate IDD what about MOHRRAMM (ASHURA) just sitting at home not even bother to go to Masjid and offer prays. Do u know because of Imam Husains SHADAT Islam is still alive.

 

3) Now all your BAYANS in MOHRRAM specially in INDIA are conducted in night most probably after 9.00 PM dont u even have time to conduct your BAYANS in day as I have observed that DAWOODI-BOHRAS closed all their work at the time of BAYAN which is conducted in DAY. If there is any true islamic caste then surely it is non other than DAWOODI-BOHRAS who had their only DAI. What about you people who is there for you. Unfortunately NO ONE ,NO ONE, NO ONE.

 

4) Again u all people take Interest which is Haram in Islam, But 90% of DAWOODI BOHRAS are not due to their Dais teaching.

 

5) Again u all people do smoking, sometimes even your MAULVIS, But 90% of DAWOODI BOHRAS are not smoking due to their Dais teaching. So think about it! DAWOODI-BOHRAS are true MUSLIMS.

BUT UNFORUNATELY Mr.ENGINEER GOT A CHANCE TO BECOME A DAWOODI-BOHRA BUT HE LOST THAT CHANCE BY DOING THINGS AGAINST DAWOODI-BOHRA COMMUNITY. SO SAD.

 

A Keen observer of Muslim Communities.

Answer:

 

Are Bohras true Muslims

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.

 

Your comment: Do u do 30 Rozas in Ramadan or just from the first Roza wating for IDD and just finishing off on 29th day of Ramadan.

The purpose of fasting in Islam is not how strong one is, or how long one can fast, or if he can fast the whole month of Rajab with Ramadan, or even if he can fast all twelve months of the year! The purpose of fasting is never to see how strong one is but rather, how obedient is the believer to the commands of Allah and His Messenger (saw)!

 

The believers follow the commands and guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws) and fast the month of Ramadan. And it is a scientific fact, that a lunar month is at times 29 days and at times 30 days! There is absolutely no proof in the recorded Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) that he always fasted 30 days during his time he fasted some years 29 days and some years 30 days in the month of Ramadan, depending on the sighting of the moon. He obviously did not follow the Bohra haqiqi moon, nor the misri calendar! Thus, the believers obey and follow Allah and the practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws); whereas some people have created their own times and fast accordingly!

 

Allah's Apostle (saws) said, "The month (can be) 29 nights (i.e. days), and do not fast till you see the moon, and if the sky is overcast, then complete Sha'ban as thirty days."

 

Guidance is following Allah and His Messenger (saws); not following ones own whims, conjecture and guess-works or the haqiqi moon or the misri calendar!!!!!


Your comment: U people (excluding DAWOODI-BOHRAS & SHIAS) only wants to celebrate IDD what about MOHRRAMM (ASHURA) just sitting at home not even bother to go to Masjid and offer prays. Do u know because of Imam Husains SHADAT Islam is still alive.

If the Messenger of Allah (saws) had gathered the believers in the month of Moharram, gave fiery speeches, wailed, sang marseeyas in Indian movie tunes, beat himself in frenzy, etc., brother, we would have no problems obeying and following the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).

 

And since even you will bear witness that the Messenger of Allah (saws) did no such thing in the ten days of Muharram that some mis-guided people do in the name of the noble ahle-bayt and Islam, then let it be known that these people follow nothing but an innovation and bida for which they have absolutely no basis and authority from Allah and His Messenger (saws)!

 

Hadrat Imam Hussein (r.a.) was indeed brutally murdered and every believer feels pain when he remembers that episode. He and his noble family were martyred in the Cause of Allah on the Path of Truth, and Allah will give them a due reward for their sacrifice. Neither will Allah Subhanah ask us what happened to Hadrat Hussain (r.a.) and his noble family in the fields of Kerbala, nor what ceremonies did we invent and celebrate in his noble name! Allah will reward Hadrat Imam Hussain and the noble martyrs of Kerbala for their deeds; and will give us our reward according to our deeds done in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 134: They were a people who passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned, and you shall have the reward of what you will earn. And you will not be questioned as to what they did.

 

To say that Islam is alive only because of the martydom of Imam Hussain (r.a.) is not to understand Allah and His Power and Might! Many Prophets of Allah were brutally murdered, many companions of the Messenger of Allah (saws) were martyred, and many believers were butchered for no fault of theirs except that they had declared their belief in the Oneness of Allah Subhanah. But at no time was Islam in any danger of being wiped out! Islam is the True deen of Allah Subhanah, and its protection and continuity is guaranteed by Allah from the creation of the first man till the end of time!


 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 33:He is Allah, Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Right Way so that He may make it prevail over all the other deens, even though the pagans be much opposed to it.

 

The continuity and emergence of Islam as a deen is in the sole Power and Domain of the Allmighty Lord, and does not depend on the life of one person! Yes, those who laid down their lives for the Pleasure of Allah will surely be honored in the presence of their Lord. Our duty was never made to honor them, invoke them, sing marseeyahs in their praise, beat ourselves in frenzy invoking their name, and celebrate their birthdays and days of martyrdom! Our duty was made to worship Allah Subhanah and invoke no other names with Him, and to obey and follow Allah and His Messenger (saws). That is the Islam that Allah intended for the believers. Not the Islam some people have invented in the names of the pious slaves and martyrs of Allah!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 51 Surah Dhariyat verse 56:I have not created the jinn and men except for this that they should worship Me alone.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 31-32:O Prophet, tell the people, If you sincerely love Allah, follow me. Then Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for He is All Forgiving, All Merciful. Also say to them, Obey Allah and His Messenger. And if, in spite of this, they do not accept your invitation, warn them that Allah does not love those, who refuse to obey Him and His Messenger.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 85:And whoever adopts any other than this way of Islam, that way shall not be accepted from him and in the Hereafter, he shall be among the losers.

 

Your comment: If there is any true islamic caste then surely it is non other than DAWOODI-BOHRAS who had their only DAI. What about you people who is there for you. Unfortunately NO ONE ,NO ONE, NO ONE.

Allah Subhanah is more than enough for the believers! The Book of Allah, and the guidance of the Last Messenger (saws) are more than enough as guides to the believers! Those who have taken the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws), are the true believers. And they are the ones whom Allah has promised His Mercy and Forgiveness!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 12 Surah Yusuf verse 108:(O Mohamed) tell them plainly, This is my Way! I invite you to Allah. I myself see my Way in full light, and my followers see it too. And Allah is absolutely free from defect, and I have nothing to do with those who invoke others with Allah.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 78:Exert your utmost for the cause of Allah, as one should. He has chosen you for His service and has not laid on you any hardship in your deen. Therefore, be steadfast in the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah had called you Muslims before this, and has called you (by the same name) in this Quran also, so that the Messenger may be a witness in regard to you, and you may be witnesses in regard to the rest of mankind. Therefore, establish the salaat and pay the zakaat, and hold fast to Allah. He (Allah) is your MAULA: what an excellent MAULA and what an excellent Helper!

 

Allah Alone is the Moula of the believers always was and always will be, until the end of time! He is the One who is always living and will never die, and to Him shall all be gathered on an inevitable Day! He is the One, The Unique, The Living, The Creator, The Provider, The Master of the Day of Judgment and the Lord of everything that is in existence! What an excellent Moula He is!

 

And the human dai you have nominated as your moula is no more than a created slave of The Real Moula, Allah Subhanah! Your moula is not one, but number 52, and like all the other human moulas he too will die and become dust! And then you will chose another moula at number 53 and carry on your counting till you meet with your Lord to give a full accounting of your inventions!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 12 Surah Yusuf verses 29-30:(Yusuf said), O my fellow prisoners, say, which is better: various lords or the One Omnipotent Allah? The lords whom you worship other than Allah are nothing more than mere names that you and your forefathers have invented; for Allah has sent down absolutely no authority for them. Sovereignty belongs to none but Allah. He has commanded that you shall not worship anyone but Him. This is the Right and Straight Way, but most people do not know this.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verses 13:Then, instead of Allah, he invokes those who can do him neither harm nor good. This is the last extremity of deviation. He invokes those who are more likely to do him harm, than good! What an EVIL MAULA he chooses, and what an evil companion.

 

Your comment: Again u all people take Interest which is Haram in Islam, But 90% of DAWOODI BOHRAS are not due to their Dais teaching.

The receiving and giving of riba is declared Haraam by Allah and His Messenger (saws) and all those who fear standing in the Court of Allah abstain from all deeds which Allah and His Messenger (saws) have declared haraam. If, according to your statistics 90% of the Dawoodi Bohras do not deal in interest, then that is good and in accordance with the teachings and guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws).

 

Your comment: Again u all people do smoking, sometimes even your MAULVIS, But 90% of DAWOODI BOHRAS are not smoking due to their Dais teaching.

Smoking / riba / drinking / zina / murder / etc. are indeed sins and declared haraam by Allah and His Messenger (saws). Whoever abstains from the sins declared by Allah and His Messenger (saws) will be rewarded their due reward by Allah Subhanah on the Day they ultimately meet with Him.

 

90% of the Dawoodi Bohras may not smoke or deal in interest (according to your statistics); but brother, 100% of them are guilty of the unforgiveable crime of SHIRK! Allah Subhanah, if He so pleases, may forgive one who sins ..but the one who dies while in the state of shirk Allah has promised never ever to forgive him Allah has promised in the Glorious Quran that He has declared Paradise haraam for such people who die in the state of shirk!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 72:Whoever commits shirk (invoking anything with Allah), Allah shall forbid for him Paradise, and Hell shall be his abode. And for such wrong doers there will be no one to help.

 

Allah says in the Quran: Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa Verse 48:Shirk (associating other deities with Allah) is the only sin that Allah does not forgive, and He forgives, whomsoever He pleases, sins other than this. For whosoever associates any other partner with Allah, does indeed forge a big lie and commits the most heinous sin

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumar verse 65-66:If you commit shirk all your works will be rendered vain and you will be among the losers. Therefore, you should worship Allah Alone, and be among His grateful servants.

 

Your Statement! So think about it! DAWOODI-BOHRAS are true MUSLIMS.

For the Dawoodi Bohras to arrogantly claim that they are on the Straight Path of Islam, is like the arrogant and ardent mushrik Abu Jahl claiming that he was the one on the true millah of Prophet Ibrahim (a.s.)!!!!!!!!!!

Inna Lillahe wa Inna Ilayhe Rajeoon! (From Allah we have come, and to Him is our ultimate return!)

 

Here is the a-z list of shirk crimes the Dawoodi Bohras do in the name of Islam: So brother, YOU THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Bowing down to anybody or anything other than Allah is shirk.

Bowing down to the Syedna is shirk.

Bowing down to the graves of his ancestors is shirk.

Bowing down to the graves of even the Prophet (saws), Hadrat Ali (saws), Hadrat Fatema (saws), etc. is shirk.

Believing that the dead people in their graves can hear and answer your duas is shirk.

Believing that anybody other than Allah can do any harm is shirk.

Believing that anybody other than Allah can bring some good is shirk.

Believing that anybody other than Allah knows everything is shirk.

Believing that anybody other than Allah sees everything is shirk.

Believing that anybody other than Allah listens to your prayers is shirk.

Believing that anybody other than Allah can help you is shirk.

Believing that anybody other than Allah can guide you is shirk.

Believing that anybody can influence Allah to give you health is shirk.

Believing that anybody can influence Allah to give you wealth is shirk.

Believing that anybody can influence Allah to give you children is shirk.

Believing that anybody can influence Allah to help you is shirk.

Believing that anybody has any power with Allah is shirk.

Believing that anybody has any power with Allah to take you out of the fire of Hell is shirk.

Believing that anybody has any power with Allah on the Day of Judgement is shirk.

Believing that anybody has any power to change the decision of Allah is shirk.

To worship anybody with Allah is shirk.

To invoke anybody with Allah is shirk.

To raise anybody to the rank of Allah is shirk.

To give any of Allahs attributes to anybody else is shirk.

To believe that anybody has the power to bring about any miracles on his own is shirk.

To go to somebody to take your message or supplication to Allah is shirk.

 

The whole deen of Dawoodi Bohra is a practice of shirk. And they have the audacity to claim to be True Muslims!!!!!!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verses 103-106:Tell them (O Mohamed), Should We tell you who are the most unsuccessful people and miserable failures in regard to their deeds? They are those, all whose edeavours in the worldly life, had gone astray from the Right Way, but all along they were under the delusion that everything they were doing, was rightly directed! Those are the people who rejected the Revelations of their Lord and did not believe that they would ever go before Him. Therefore all their deeds were lost, for We shall assign no weight to them on the Day of Reserruction. Their recompense is Hell for the disbelief they showed, and for the mockery they adopted in regard to My Aayahs and My Messengers!

 

Your Statement: SO SAD.

IndeedSO SAD!!! And sadder will be the state of the ones who commit shirk, on the Day of Judgement!

 

 

Your Observation: A Keen observer of Muslim Communities.

Our observation in guidance of the Quran and Sunnah: A former Dawoodi Bohra who has left the deen of shirk propagated by its unscrupulous self-made leaders and blindly followed by its followers in the name of Islam!

 

From a keen ex-oberserver of the Dawoodi Bohra Community!

 

And the Observation and Retribution of The All-Seeing, All Knowing, Allah Subhanah is a thing one should dread!

 

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,

 

 

Burhan
