1. Hello Burhan, I just read your answer on Shabe-Baraat. I thought this night was the night of Hazrat Ali and Bibi Fatima`s wedding. Is that not true. 2. Things to do during new born baby 3. Special days and nights which the Prophet celebrated 4. Planting a tree on grave. 5. Gifts and circumcision during hajj. 6. I highly appreciate the work that you are putting in to educating all Bohra brethren, May Allah bless you for this excellent work. A question has been bothering me for a while and I will appreciate some relevant answers. With the first of Moharram is the Bohra tradition of the `Thaal` and the keeping of `Pan`, `Supari`, and `Coconut` as auspicious things. Further, there has been a tradition of `Thaal Wadhawanu`, which has been going on for ages. Is there any significance to this other than the fact that it is a tradition carried forward from the Nagar Brahmin roots of Bohras that were converted a few centuries ago that are still being manifested as everyday traditions. I am of the opinion that these are pagan rituals, please correct me if I am wrong. I will appreciate a reply as first Moharram is fast approaching. Thanks 7.
