Syedna is the bolta Quran
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:
As faith of Dawoodibohra our Aqa Moula Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin saheb (T.U.S.) is our bolta Quran and he is in place of Rasullah (SA) in current zaman so dont say a word againts him as Dawoodi Bohra and dont try to send mail to us henceforth.

Syedna is the bolta Quran
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and who-ever 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.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 93-94: Those, who believe in the Hereafter, believe in This Book (Al Quran), and observe their prescribed prayers punctually. And who could be more wicked than the one who invents a falsehood about Allah, or says, “A Revelation has come to me”, whereas no Revelation has come to him. Or says, “I will also send down the like of what Allah has sent down.” Would that you could see these wicked people, when they are in the agonies of death and the angels are stretching out their hands and saying, “Come, yield up your soul! Today you shall be awarded a disgraceful torment for the false things you attributed to Allah, and for the rebellion you showed against His Revelations.”
(Then Allah will say to these wicked people), “So! You have come before Us all alone, as We Created you at first. Now, you have left behind all that We gave to you in the world. And now, We do not see with you those ‘Shofaa’ who, you believed, had a share in the molding your destinies. All the relations between you have been cut off, and all those, in whom you trusted, have left you in the lurch!”
Allah appointed the Last Messenger as Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws), and revealed the Quran to him (saws) by inspiration. Thus it is only the Messenger of Allah (saws) who holds the honor of being the ‘speaking’ Quran. The noble companions of the Prophet (saws) documented the Quran in a Book form and the Quran stays documented exactly as was revealed to the Messenger of Allah (saws) today, and Insha Allah, until the end of time. Neither Allah, nor the Messenger (saws), appointed anyone to take over the position of the ‘speaking’ Quran… and whoever claims that he is a ‘speaking’ Quran is nothing but a manifest liar!
When Allah passes a Decree and appoints a Messenger, and the people reject him… it is a grave sin in the eyes of Allah. Similarly, if Allah does not pass a Decree or Authorize someone, and he claims to take the place of the Messenger of Allah (saws) on his own … it is also a grave sin in the eyes of Allah.
We urge you to clarify and confirm if Allah has indeed authorized your Syedna to take the position of the Last Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws) in this age, and claim to be the ‘speaking’ Quran. If you can show us the evidence from the Holy Quran or the Sunnah of the Messenger (saws), we will believe you.
If not, then bear witness with us that the person claiming the place and position of our beloved Prophet (saws), is a confirmed liar, and those who follow him are following nothing but their whims, conjecture and absolute falsehood! And whether you bear witness or not, Allah is a witness to all the falsehood that these people propagate in the name of Islam, and they should prepare for a very severe accounting in the Court of Allah on an Inevitable Day!
No one in the whole history of mankind loved, followed and obeyed a man more than the noble companions loved, followed and obeyed the Messenger of Allah (saws). On one command of the Prophet (saws), they were ready to sacrifice their wealth, their children, their parents and their selves for the Cause of Allah. But they never ever bowed down in ‘sajdah’ to this supreme leader mankind has ever seen! They bowed down in ‘sajdah’ to the Lord of the Worlds, Allah Alone! These noble companions never called themselves ‘Abde-Mohamed’ (Slaves of Mohamed), but were always knows as ‘Abd-Allah’ (slaves of Allah). Allah Alone is our Lord and Master, and He Alone deserves our ‘sajdahs’, and no one else!
If anyone calls himself a ‘slave’ of anyone other than Allah, and bows down to him in worship; bear witness that they have created their own Master without any authority from the Lord of the Worlds, and should prepare themselves for a severe accounting on the Day of Judgement for their this heinous crime 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 Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzab verse 66-68: On the Day their faces are rolled about on the Fire, they will say, “Would that we had obeyed Allah and His Messenger!” And they will say, “O our Lord, we obeyed our CHIEFS and our GREAT MEN, and they led us astray from the Right Path. O our Lord, give them a double chastisement and curse them severely”.
Thus brother, fear Allah!, before you raise anyone to the position of the Messenger of Allah (saws), or at times give the right which is due to Allah to this self-created ‘taghoot’! Fear Allah and fear the Last Day! Fear Allah, before the advent of an Inevitable Day, when nothing and no one will be able to save the people who commit ‘shirk’ from the Wrath and Anger of Allah. Fear Allah, and stay away from these leaders who have taken away the clear guidance and teachings of the Glorious Quran from their followers, and sold the words of Allah for a paltry gain in this transitory world! Fear Allah, before its too late!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 159: Those who conceal the clear (Revelations) and Guidance We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, on them shall be Allah’s ‘laanah’ and the ‘laanah’ of those who are entitled to curse!
May Allah have Mercy on the believers! May Allah give us the wisdom and the courage to read and understand the Holy Quran, so that we may recognize the Attributes of Allah and stay away from these self-made ‘taghoots’. May Allah guide us to the Siraat Mustaqeem.
May Allah guide you and us to read and understand the simple and plain words of the Glorious Quran. May Allah increase our knowledge from the Holy Quran. May Allah guide us to the Siraat al Mustaqeem.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
