You have stopped following our beloved AQA MOULA (TUS) and you have started following Quran Sharif on your own and through some translations
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:
I just happen go through ur site and understood that you have stopped following our beloved AQA MOULA (TUS) and you have started following Quran Sharif on your own and through some translations, correct me if I m going wrong.
I don`t have any questions but just one that, can u explain me that as per you the DAI`s are not on right path but still they are managing the DAWA`H for more then 900 yrs and the fact is that they have always worked for the betterment of mumineen (read the history of mumineen to justify to urself), what we were past 40 yrs and what we are now. How can some one maintain the same culture with the passing time and with so many changes in the world without being honest or not guided by Allah Subhanahu.
There are thousands of mozizah of DAI-ul-Mutlaq and indeed not only bohras or muslims but other people also justifies them, how is it possible if he is not true.
One mozizah which I can remember here is, our Beloved Muqaddas MOULA (RA) visited Ajmer (very holy place for muslims) the people there seeing the face of Moula (TUS) became qurious to know who is this fellow, they insisted him to open the Holy Quran and upon multiple request Moula (RA) did and the Aaya`h opened was "indeed the true followers of Allah Subhanahu" (i didn`t remember the exact Ayya`h but I wrote the meaning or conclusion I remembered).
There are many more infact countless .... and in every field medical, engineering, management, event handling etc list is countless.
If you are diong such a research for the right path then go ahead and read one book on the Fatimiyan Imam`s and DAI`s done by some Christian, I beleive u can find the book on Amazon.
One more thing to add that Muqaddas Moula (RA) won the case in the highest court of world where all the ref from the Holy Quran were discussed and the judges were not bohra`s. Infact this proves that Holy Quran helped to won the case as they translated many Ayya`h from the Holy Quran to english and discuss them, this was in the highest court of this world and all the Aulmas were there.

Bohra follower of syedna miracles
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 Question: I just happen go through ur site and understood that you have stopped following our beloved AQA MOULA (TUS) and you have started following Quran Sharif on your own and through some translations, correct me if I m going wrong.
Respected brother, it is indeed true that after Allah Subhanah guided us to the Truth of the Glorious Quran, we have left every falsehood and the deen of our forefathers which we were born into, and are striving to live our lives in accordance with the guidance of the Glorious Book of Guidance of our Lord, and the authentic and established Sunnah of His Last and Final Messenger (saws).
Your Question: I don`t have any questions but just one that, can u explain me that as per you the DAI`s are not on right path but still they are managing the DAWA`H for more then 900 yrs
If only the successful passage of time of a mere 900 years were the criterion of a sect, or belief, or way being the truth, then one should know that the belief in Jainism, Buddhism, and Hinduism has survived in excess of 5000 years; Judaism in excess of 4000 years and Christianity in excess of 2000 years.would or could the survival of these beliefs be truer than one which has survived a mere 900 years??
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185:
Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a Perfect Guidance for mankind and consists of clear Teachings which show the Right Way, and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood.
Dear and beloved brother, the determination of the Truth and the falsehood cannot be determined by how long one sect or belief or way has survived the passage of time; but rather the Lord Most High guides that it is His Glorious Book of Guidance, the Al-Quran, which alone is the Criterion between what is the Truth and what is falsehood; and in our Lord Creator have we professed our belief.
Your Statements: and the fact is that they have always worked for the betterment of mumineen (read the history of mumineen to justify to urself), what we were past 40 yrs and what we are now. How can some one maintain the same culture with the passing time and with so many changes in the world without being honest or not guided by Allah Subhanahu.
If the wordly or material success of a people in a meager span of 40 years is the determination of being the truth or being guided by Lord.then many a nation and many a people and many a belief have far far exceeded the wordly or material success claimed by your sect!!!!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 23 Surah Muminoon verse 52-55:
And you all belong to one and the same ummah, and I(Allah) am your Lord; so fear Me Alone! Yet afterwards the people divided themselves into different sects, and each sect rejoicing in what it has. Well, leave them deeply involved in their heedlessness up to an appointed time. What? Do they think that, by continuing to provide them with wealth and children, We are solicitous for their welfare? Nay, they do not understand the reality of the matter!
Beloved brother, the success in this paltry and transitory world cannot be a factor of the determination of the Truth.neither should a people exult in the wealth, or riches, or luxury, or worldly honor, or children, or number, etc. which their Lord has bestowed upon them as a trial and a test!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verses 33-35:
33 And were it not that (all) men might become of one (evil) way of life, We (Allah) would provide for everyone that blasphemes against (Allah) The Most Gracious silver roofs for their houses, and (silver) stair-ways on which to go up!
34 And (silver) doors to their houses, and thrones (of silver) on which they could recline!
35 And also adornments of gold. But all this are nothing but conveniences of the present life: the Hereafter in the Sight of thy Lord is only for the Righteous.
Beloved brother, what has not changed in the past 40 years is the spiritual bankruptcy that existed amongst the sect then and which exists till today.
- Instead of bowing down in prostration to their Lord Creator Alone, they bowed down in prostration to men and graves then, and they still do so today!
- Instead of invoking and worshipping none save their Lord Creator in the unseen, they invoked the living and their dead in the unseen then, and they still do so today!
- Instead of unconditionally obeying Allah and His Last Messenger (saws) alone, they unconditionally obey and follow their self-appointed priests and holy men then, and still do so today!
- They were kept ignorant of the clear guidance of the Glorious Book of Allah then, and they are still kept away from understanding the One and Only Truly Divine Book today!
- They were told that after a thousand lives they were born into their sect then, and they are told to believe the same today!
- They were assured of going to Paradise simply because they were born into their sect then, and they are told and they believe the same lie and falsehood today!
- They cursed and reviled and rebuked the chaste wives and the noble companions of the Messenger (saws) then, and they continue to do so today!
- They were guilty of committing shirk then, and are guilty of the that same heinous and unforgivable abomination of shirk today!
Thus my beloved brother, as much as one may have excelled in their wealth and their children in the last 40 years..the ignorance of the Truth and the spiritual bankruptcy that existed in the sect then, exists in their belief and way of life till today!
Your Statement: There are thousands of mozizah of DAI-ul-Mutlaq and indeed not only bohras or muslims but other people also justifies them, how is it possible if he is not true.
A Moujizah or a Miracle can be described as an act of a super-natural power, which is done out of the routine of nature.
Allah has made a way or sabab for everything to happen in this world, and anything that happens beyond this way or sabab is termed a miracle. For example, if one intends to go from New York to Los Angeles, one would have to take the sabab of some kind of transport. If one got up in New York and the next second he is in Los Angeles without any form of transport, it would be deemed a miracle!
Miracles are only in the Sole Domain of Allah Alone and nobody has a right to do any miracles, unless Allah Himself commands and sends the miracle to any amongst His Prophets. No one, absolutely no one, can perform a miracle by his own self; not even the mightiest Prophets of Allah. Allah Subhanah appointed Prophets, and He gave the sign of Miracles to them. Allah gives many examples of His Miracles in the Holy Quran which he gave to Prophet Abraham, Prophet Moses, Prophet Isa, Prophet Mohamed (saws) and many other Prophets. These miracles were not performed at the whims and fancies of the Prophets themselves, but were always in Allahs Hands and Commands.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 38:
And no Messenger had the power to show any Miracles without the sanction of Allah.
You will also realize that these fancy stories of miracles are just about related to every idol, every grave which is used as a place of worship, and almost every high priest of every misguided sect! There are literally hundreds of these miracles attached to each over a period of time! Remember the miracle of the hindu god ganpati and the drinking of the milk? Remember the miraculous story of the statue of baby Jesus crying in New York? Remember the water coming out of Raudat Tahera and the other mazaars simultaneously in quick succession, and then suddenly stopped? These stories may have any number of reasons, but once they start, they spread like wild fire and people keep adding their own versions into them. The fact is that only Allah has the right to show miracles and no one else!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anam verse 37:
These people ask: Why has no Sign (Miracle) been sent down to this Prophet from his Lord? Say (O Mohamed), Allah Alone is able to send down a Sign (Miracle), but most of these people do not understand the wisdom underlying it.
Whenever one is dis-associated from the Truth and the guidance of the Quran, all sorts of fantastic stories and miracles are reported at the hands of their high priests and at the graves of their ancestors by their followers to beguile their followers in believing the falsehood! This system of declaring miracles at the hands of the high priests and at graves or idols is not isolated amongst our Bohra brethren, but such fantastic stories are related time and again by almost all those involved in the belief and worship of falsehoods! Every such misguided sect have their own high priests and graves or idols, and similar stories of the supposed miracles are related by their followerswhere the rain, the mountains, the sun, the moon, the seas, the animals, even life and death is at the disposal of these self-proclaimed high priests!
Allah Subhanah performs the miracles at the hands of His Prophets as a Sign towards the unbelievers, and the Prophets are made aware and they declare the miracles before the miracles take place!
Allah is our witness brother, the self-appointed high priests or graves or idols have absolutely no power to perform miracles, nor do they ever claim to perform miracles! It is only long after an event has taken place to their liking, their cronies and ignorant followers start claiming that it was a miracle of their self-appointed officials!
It is indeed a pitiful state that even after the revelation of the Book of Guidance (Al-Quran), some people who call themselves believers insist on giving super-natural powers and assign miracles to their self-appointed holy men without an iota of authority from the All Mighty Lord!
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, if only you would believe the Truth of the clear Verses of the Quran with the same zest and belief as you have on the self-made stories of falsehood, you would be able to differentiate the Truth from the falsehoods!
Your Statement: One mozizah which I can remember here is, our Beloved Muqaddas MOULA (RA) visited Ajmer (very holy place for muslims) the people there seeing the face of Moula (TUS) became qurious to know who is this fellow, they insisted him to open the Holy Quran and upon multiple request Moula (RA) did and the Aaya`h opened was "indeed the true followers of Allah Subhanahu" (i didn`t remember the exact Ayya`h but I wrote the meaning or conclusion I remembered).
First and foremost, the only places which Allah and His Messenger (saws) have declared holy are:
- The Sacred House of Allah in Makkah
- The Prophets Mosque in Madinah
- and the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
Other than these three, neither is a place holy, nor is a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day permitted to make a special travel to worship there!
Sa'id bin Al-Musayyib reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (saws) said, "You should not undertake a special journey to visit any place (for worship) other than the three Holy Mosques: the Sacred Mosque of Makkah, this mosque of mine (in Madinah), and Al-Aqsa Mosque (of Jerusalem)."

Beloved brother, wisdom dictates that when one opens a page of the Glorious Quran, it does not consist one phrasebut tens of verses.and even if the story related by you is to be believed, the truth remains that this phrase indeed the true followers of Allah..is found and repeated by the Lord umpteen times in His Glorious Quran.and more often than not, if anyone, even if a disbeliever were to open the Glorious Quran at random, one could surely find a phrase which he would like to apply to himself in pride and arrogance!!!!
If only the opening of a page of the Glorious Quran at random and assigning one particular phrase to oneself is deemed as a miracle of the high priest, and a determination of his being on the true path by himself and his followers.then indeed it has to be the height of ignorance of the True and Straight Path of Guidance of the Lord Most High!
Your Statement: If you are diong such a research for the right path then go ahead and read one book on the Fatimiyan Imam`s and DAI`s done by some Christian, I beleive u can find the book on Amazon.
Beloved brother, if you could kindly give me the name of the book or even the author, I would surely like to read the account of the Christian brother who wrote this book..
Your Statement: One more thing to add that Muqaddas Moula (RA) won the case in the highest court of world where all the ref from the Holy Quran were discussed and the judges were not bohra`s. Infact this proves that Holy Quran helped to won the case as they translated many Ayya`h from the Holy Quran to english and discuss them, this was in the highest court of this world and all the Aulmas were there.
Beloved brother in Islam, from the above statement would it be safe to assume that the leadership endorse or acknowledge that the Glorious Quran can indeed be translated and understood??? If that is the case brother, then as your brothers and sincere well-wishers in faith, we invite you to read with understanding the Glorious Book of Guidance revealed by your and our Lord Creator for the guidance of all mankindeven if only once.then alone would you be equipped to determine the Truth from the falsehood. In the absence of the clear guidance of the Holy Quran, every claim, every story, every supposed miracle, every belief, every way of life, etc. will be presented and justified in ignorance by the ignorant as the truth.
But if you are sincere in your search for the Truth, then read the Glorious Quran with understanding even only once.and then instead of relying on stories and here-say, use this Glorious Book of Guidance Alone as the Criterion between the Truth and the falsehood.
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, the Lord Creator Himself, time and time again, Declares in His Glorious Quran that His Message is absolutely clear, plain, and easy to understand!
Allah says in Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah aayat 185
Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a Perfect Guidance for mankind and consists of clear Teachings which show the Right Way, and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 89:
We have sent down to you this Book, which makes everything plain, and is a guidance, blessing and good news to those who have surrendered themselves entirely.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 19 Surah Maryam verse 97:
We have made this Quran easy, and sent it down in your tongue so that you should give good news to the pious and warn the stubborn people.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1-3:
All praise is for Allah Alone, Who has sent down this Book to His Servant (Mohamed (saws), and assigned nothing crooked to it. This Book says everything directly, so that he may warn the people of the severe chastisement of Allah and give good news to the believers, who do righteous deeds, that they will have an excellent reward.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 99:
We have sent down to you Revelations that clearly expound the Truth, and none but the disobedient reject them.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiya verse 10:
We have sent down to you a Book, which deals with matters concerning yourselves. What? Do you not understand this?
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verses 89:
In this Quran, we employed different ways to make the people understand the Message, but the majority of them persisted in un-belief.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 157-158:
Now that a clear proof, a Guidance and Blessing, has come to you from your Lord, who can be more unjust than the one who treats Our Revelations as false and turns away from them? We will inflict the severest torment on those who turn away from Our Revelations because of their aversion. Do the people now await that the angels should come down before them? Or that your Lord may Himself come down? Or that the manifest Signs of your Lord should appear?
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, we can keep on quoting Aayah upon Aayah from the Glorious Quran to prove the falsehood and utter blasphemy propagated by those who strive to conceal and discredit the clean and open Revelations of the Lord Most High. The Lord All-Knowing is well aware of their blasphemy, and without an iota of a doubt, not only will the leaders who propagate this blasphemy bring ruin upon themselves, but also upon those who unconditionally followed them!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verse 5:
As for those who strive hard to discredit Our Revelations, for them is a painful torment, most humiliating.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rum verses 58-60:
We have set forth in this Quran every sort of argument to make the people understand; but whatever aayah you may bring, the disbelievers will certainly say, You are following falsehood. Thus does Allah seal up the hearts of those who (wish to) understand not. So, patiently perservere; for surely the promise of Allah is True. And let not those who have no certainty of faith, shake your firmness.
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 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.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
