La'nat and Bara'at

The meaning of La’nat:

La’ana َلعَن  = to be distanced from khayr (good),  rehmat (mercy). To punish, curse etc. The subject of the word “La´nat”, Mal’oon ملعون is person who has been distanced from rehmat, khayr and one who is damned and cursed.

(Source: Dictionary of Lisan al Arab)

La’nat & Bara’at - An Integral part of Islamic Dawoodi Bohra belief

La’nat in the Quran:

Fatemi texts confirm that along with doing Walayat of the Saheb al Zaman, it is incumbent on all to do Bara’at from evil prior to that. This is why we recite of اعوذ بالله السميع العليم من الشيطان الرجيم (to seek refuge from Saitan, the cursed), and then recite بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم (In the Name of Allah…)..

The Quran is The Book of guidance for all humanity. It is The Book of Pure Love and Peace.

It is interesting to note that the word La’nat is mentioned in the Quran about 40 times (similar ideas are mentioned in the Holy Bible and other religious texts). This is evidence that La’nat is an integral part of Islamic belief. It doesn’t make you into a 'hate-filled fundamentalist'. It is what defines you as a Muslim. 

HQ despite his PhD in Quranic studies, seems to have forgotten, or has deliberately hidden these basic tenets of the Quran.

Curse,laanat
In the Quran, Allah, his angels and the people recite La’nat on a number of different categories, some are mentioned here:
  • Iblees (The Devil)
  • Those who hide & deny the Truth
  • Liars
  • Zalemeen (Tyrants)
  • One who murders a Mumin
  • Fir'awn (Pharaoh) and his followers
  • A person who falsely accuses someone else
  • Those who make life difficult for the Prophet and His Aehle -Bait
  • The people enter hell will pray La’nat on each other for leading them astray.
More so, the Quran does instruct the people to recite La’nat on those who fall into these categories.

161|إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ وَمَاتُوا۟ وَهُمْ كُفَّارٌ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ لَعْنَةُ ٱللَّهِ وَٱلْمَلَٰٓئِكَةِ وَٱلنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ
(Indeed, those who did Kufr and died as Kuffaar, on them is the La'nat of Allah, the angels and the people)

2|159|إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَكْتُمُونَ مَآ أَنزَلْنَا مِنَ ٱلْبَيِّنَٰتِ وَٱلْهُدَىٰ مِنۢ بَعْدِ مَا بَيَّنَّٰهُ لِلنَّاسِ فِى ٱلْكِتَٰبِ ۙ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ يَلْعَنُهُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَلْعَنُهُمُ ٱللَّٰعِنُونَ
Those who hid the Truth, have the La'nat of Allah and the La’nat of the people (those who recite La’nat).

It is clear that La’nat is indeed a part of our aqeedah, so what more apt place to do izhaar (reveal) our aqeedah than in a Masjid or Majlis of Dawat?

The True followers of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA, the Haq na Dai, are the ones who accept the nass on Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS. Dawedaar, according to the Quran is an imposter. He distanced himself from the Dai, and in return has been distanced from rehmat and khayr. He falls under the above mentioned categories. Let us evaluate:

  • Iblees (The Devil) - Just as Iblees refused to give Sajda to to Adam AS. His pride and ego had the worst of him.
  • Those who hide & deny the Truth - Dawedaar continues to hide and deny the proof of Nass, even though it is clear as day.
  • Liars - As seen multiple times on his site, in his, and his children’s bayaans, they continue to fabricate and spread their lies.
  • Zalemeen (Tyrants). One who claims something that is not rightfully his is a zaalim. Dawedaar claims the lofty role of the Dai Mutlaq, he is nothing but a zaalim.
  • One who murders a Mumin. The Quran says that “fitnat is worse than murder”. To claim to be Dai, and spread fitnat is nothing but true murder, nay, it is much worse.
  • Mushrikeen (Idol worshipers). Syedi Sadiq Ali Saheb states that “those who follow the ones without Nass are nothing but idol worshipers” (they are void of the “life” of Nass, they are truly dead). Dawedaar is an idol without Nass to his followers.
  • Fir'awn (Pharaoh) and his followers. The Fir’awn was delusional to claim that he was God. Dawedaar claims he is the Dai.
  • A person who falsely accuses someone else. On number of times Dawedaar and his children have falsely accused Aali Qadr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS.
  • Those who make life difficult for Mohammed Rasoolullah SAW and His Aehle -Bait (SA) Dawedaar continued to make Syedna “Mohammed” Burhnanuddin’s life difficult, and currently, the life of his true Mansoos.
  • The people going into hell will pray La’nat on each other for leading them astray: Although many mumineen were saved from Dawedaar’s clutches, all those who left him continue to pray La’nat on him for leading them astray from so many years.
