Ismaili Center on Kanis Rd. Little Rock AR USA

A new Ismaili Center recently opened, (about 2 weeks ago),in Little Rock on Kanis Rd. very close to my home. I'm very interested in learning about their traditions, beliefs etc and am happy they have chosen this area of Little Rock to open their place of worship. I wonder if outsiders are allowed to visit during prayers or the worship service? I am a Unitarian Universalist and have very liberal beliefs when it comes to religion. I would enjoy learning more about the Ismaili faith/following.

Urgent need for accomodation in Copenhagen

Dear all,
Ya Ali madad,
I'm Ehsan, a newcomer to Denmark and in desparate need to find a place to stay for at least three weeks in order to validate my CPR number. The authorities gave me a deadline till August 1st to find a residency address or they will cancel my CPR number.
I am 31, male and from Iranian Ismaiili community. I've been a volunteer teacher in Jamatkhana of Tehran for months, teaching Math and Physics to college students. I graduated in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and have a green card permission to stay in Denmark. I am eager to serve Jamatkhana in any way I am asked for.
I can afford up to 2500 DKK monthly for a place to live. I have tried many sites and groups online but it was of no avail. So I came to Norway to my sister's place in order to avoid high expenses of staying placeless in Copenhagen. However I am ready to be in Copehagen at the shortest notice because I should settle down in Copenhagen before 1st Aug. I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have got something on your mind.
Thanks for your time and concern.

Ginans - Original scripts

My gratitude for English Transliteration of ginans.
Please provide original scripts-Gujarati, etc also.
I have great difficulty with pronunciation in English only version.
Gujarati versions will help with correct pronunciation and impart meanings clearly.

Druze

My understanding the Druze Sect is a branch of the Ismaili,The Ismaili sect has translated the Greek phillosophy,and later it was adopted by the druze sect.We have similar culture,and social behaviour.I would like to know is your holy book is secret and discrete like the Druze and the language you practice in your holy book?

Druze

Hello Mahmoud, Druze sect was part of Ismaili faith long ago that had parted ways - same as other Shia sects. Our spiritual leaders' (imam) farman (sayings) are usually in English language but are also translated in other languages. Quran is also our holy book. Are you a Druze? If you are let keep in touch. Write to me at naegcanada at gmal do com.

Help Out your Ismaili Brothers & Sisters Around the Globe

Dear Brothers & Sisters, YAM..it has been observed that many of our brothers and sisters are enjoying their life very well living in European Countries i.e. US or Canada and others.. Its the natural habitat that everyone in the World lives for himself or herself..If we talk about Islam and specially Ismaili Islam..it teach us to help each and everyone in every walk of life..Many of our brothers and sisters are living in some societies in the World in very harsh conditions because of economical disabilities or social but they are in very worst lifestyles which has not just been created by themselves but the Countries laws and mismanagement is also the part of that worst living conditions..I would like to invite those Ismaili brothers & sisters who can help their troubled brothers & sisters in such countries Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and all other failed states as they can help them to immigrate to US & Canada the better opportunities established countries..I know many of them have ideal social and economical status but they fed up living in such a society where a single person can not express truth and even far away to struggle for his/her right..I hope all of you reading this script can understand it very well..

Thank You

Thank you so very much for such detailed explanation.

Your site was the first one with so much detail on the subject I wanted to study about. Keep up the good work and keep the site open for all communities so that we can all benefit from each other and learn. I've had experiences with some sites that after a while close entry or make it exclusively for the community or site members only. So please keep it open always for everyone just like today. Surfing your site getting information and posting a comment was like a breeze. To all our Ismaili brothers Ya Ali madad - from Pakistan.

I found this site very help especially to find any jk any where

YAM
I would like congratulate to the team for such great effort to bring all the ismaili community together, and i very glad to say this effort even bringing other community people closer to our tariqah. You deserve this such appreciation. This site was even help full before from all aspect, but it got better now. It's very help full to find JK all around the world.
May maula give you more streangth to keep this tradition.

JK in Goa India

Hi, I am wondering if there is a JK in Goa, please advise.

JK's in GOA

To my knowledge there are 3 JK's in GOA. 1 in Panjim, 1 in Margao & the other ?
ALSO CK it out:
http://ismaili.net/heritage/node/21307

Why so few people are posting?

Is there another Ismaili website I find the Ismaili Web (FIELD) has very few people posting.

Go to ismaili.net and click Forum

Go to ismaili.net and click on Forum in the left menu. There are discussion on thousands of topics related to Ismailism. If you are looking for social discussions between Ismailis, this is not the place. Else click here: http://www.ismaili.net/html/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpBB2&file=inde...

Don't forget, this is like a Library and there are rooms reserved for people's interaction and debate and there are rooms were you read only.

Is Bandagi a khidmat?

In majalis we do ibadat,so does it mean that we have served to maula in these majalis? what I want to ask is ,"if we do just ibadat in these majalis, would it make us worthy for these majalis?"or we should do something else?...

moiz.ashiqali [at] yahoo.com

Bandgi / Khidmat

Nope Bandagi is mandatory if you have gotten 'BOLL' from MHI, while Khidmat is not!
Khidmat, sure help you to progress in Bandagi, it is a booster for Bandagi
To see the Noor of Allah you must have to practice on Bandgi while you can not see the Noor just doing Khidmat
Bandagi is day khidmat is night.
However, Khidmat of Jamat and Mowla is very important in our religion so, nobody can denied its importance.

Atman vs jiva

How atman is different from jiva?

moiz.ashiqali [at] yahoo.com

Atma v/s Jeev

Aatma ( soul ) is pure, it is eternal, it does not have death and it does not have any feeling
While Jeev also called "Man" has to face feeling (joy, sadness, happiness e.t.c.) it is not pure and its playing big roll in human being to do good or bad deeds. Jeev makes you good or bad person.

Is concept of "Four Gatis" accepted by our deen?

In Religious book of hinduism "gita" it is written that there are four gatis..transmigration of soul exists according to the karma to one of the four gatis. Is this knowledge accepted by our ismailism ?

moiz.ashiqali [at] yahoo.com

why we are always given 3 chantas?

according to my teachers ,some say that 1st chanta is for soul ,2nd is for mind,3rd is for body .some say that 1st and 2nd is for two eyes and 3rd is for mouth.can anyone please tell me the correct information.

moiz.ashiqali [at] yahoo.com

can higher stage of consciousness can be reached through ibadat?

what is the correct way of ibadat,according to ginans and farman through which one can reach to highest level of consciousness?

moiz.ashiqali [at] yahoo.com

ibadat

Yes,
please visit forum section of this website where you can find all the answers you just put here with detail.

Melodious Recitation of Ginans by Shamshu Jamal

In listening to some of the ginans in this album, I noticed that all the individual ginans (although sung by various artists, male and female), are attributed to Shamshu Jamal. The names of individual artists are shown in the album and should be so recorded per each respective ginan. If the one who posted the album on your site does not have the information, I would be glad to share that with him or her.
