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 would like to find a Copy of the Dawoodi Borah Sahifa in English . I believe it is available in England.

I would also like a copy of Kuthubae Zaineb or Zainabnama in English. Please help

Sahifa in English

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.


Dear Brother/Sister in Islam,

Most Bohra books are not allowed to be translated into English, for reasons best known to the leaders of the sect.   But we would be more than pleased to offer you the copy of the translation of the very words of our Lord and Creator, Allah Subhanah:  The Glorious Quran.   All the other Islamic books are nothing but apparent off-shoots of this ocean of knowledge,  and Allah has made it an obligatory duty on every muslim that he/she should read and follow the clear guidance and teachings of the Holy Quran.    On the inevitable Day of Judgement, Allah will not judge the people on whether they followed this saheefa or that khuthba, but rather He will judge whether we followed the clear and direct commandments of the Glorious Quran.   


May Allah guide you and us all to read and understand the clear and simple Message of the Glorious Quran so that we can live our lives according to the will and in submission of our Lord and Creator, Allah Subhanah.


May Allah guide you and us all 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,
