Change the name of the website
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 salam alikum
i would like to convey my best wishes to your forum, no doubt it is one of the excellent forum , i m trying forward your question and answers to all my friends and family members, but maximum people rejecting/unsbscribing , the forum without reading any of the question/answer, the reason mainly is the name of your website, no doubt all your replies are based on hadith and quran, but the name of forum misleading all other musallmah , and they are thinking that, this forum is something to do with bohras,change in name may benefit all the muslim brothers and sisters. with lots of wishes and duva

Change the name of the website
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.
Jazak Allah Kheir and may Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this life and the hereafter, for recognizing the Truth of the Quran and Sunnah. And may Allah reward you with the best for distributing the articles of this forum to your friends and family, and helping us spread the Truth of the Message of Allah and His Messenger (saws).
We are aware of the problem with the believers, who when they see the name of the website, think this is a Bohra propagation site, and ignore or delete them! The only reason we started this forum is that we wanted to help our Bohra brethren understand the clear guidance and teachings of the Glorious Quran, and give them an avenue to ask any type of questions on Islam, which they are not allowed to ask their scholars in their sect. With the help, Grace, and Mercy of Allah, our articles are sent to almost 150,000 readers although the majority of the readers are brothers and sisters from the Dawoodi Bohra sect, there are many believers who have subscribed to our web-site. All Praise is due to Allah Alone, Who has honored us to do this humble work in His Blessed Name, and for His Pleasure Alone.
Brother, there are many good Islamic sites where our brethren from mainstream Islam can ask questions and receive their answers but for the Bohra brethren, who unconditionally believe and follow their sect leaders without ever being allowed to ask any questions, this is probably the only site. Our only fear in changing the name of the site is that we may alienate our Dawoodi Bohra brethren, who are in desperate need of guidance from the Holy Quran, so that they may recognize the false beliefs of shirk which they follow and obey unconditionally, and without any basis or authority from the Quran and Sunnah; so that they may save themselves and their families from the everlasting torment of Hell Fire. Allah is our witness, there is no other reason for this name.
We are in the process of contemplating opening a mirror or parallel site where any believer (or even non-believers) may post their questions, and if Allah Wills and Helps us, we shall be starting it soon.
Once again, Jazak
Allah Kheir for your suggestion in helping us deliver the Message of Truth from the Quran
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of
this life, and honor you with
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,
