Bohra mom worships Syedna
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.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verse 2-3:
So worship Allah Alone, making your religion His exclusively. Beware! Religion is the exclusive Right of Allah. As for those who have taken other auliyas (guardians) with Allah (and justify their this conduct by saying): We serve them only that they may bring us closer to Allah. Allah will surely judge between them concerning all that in which they differ. Allah does not show guidance to any liar and denier of the Truth.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verse 66:
Note it well that all the dwellers of the heavens and the earth belong to Allah. And those who invoke partners besides Allah, follow nothing but surmises and merely indulge in guess-works!
Worship is the absolute and exclusive right of Allah Subhanah, and if anyone in creation worships or prays to any one other than the One and Only Lord, Allah Subhanah wa Taala, they would indeed be guilty of the gravest of abominations and most heinous of sins, shirk!
Beloved brother, this sin and crime of shirk or worshipping others with Allah Subhanah is so heinous and so grave in the Sight of Allah Subhanah, that the Lord All-Mighty has declared that if one were to die in the state of shirk, He would never ever forgive them and Hell Fire would be their guaranteed destination!
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.
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.
My beloved brother, had your beloved mother known that worshipping and praying to her syedna is shirk in the Sight of Allah, and had she known the Wrath and Anger of Allah Subhanah on those who practice shirk, she would never ever have associated anyone with Allah Subhanah in her worship; but her acts of shirk are only due to her lack of the Knowledge of the Quran and her ignorance of the Truth.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 66 Surah Tahreem verse 6:
O you who have believed, save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel shall be men and stones; over which shall be appointed fierce and stern Angels, who never disobey Allahs Command, and they only do as they are commanded!
My dear and beloved brother, as long as there is one breath of life left in your body, it is your duty after you have accepted belief to strive your utmost with absolute patience and wisdom to guide your beloved mother to understand the commands and Revelations of The Lord All-Mighty and try to save her from the Eternal and Everlasting torment of the Hell Fire which the Lord has promised to those who die in the state of shirk!
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,
