About the Dawoodi Bohras

The Dawoodi Bohras are a Muslim community living in over 40 countries across the world. Followers of their leader, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, Bohras are generally well educated, business people and qualified professionals in various fields. With a distinctive culture, they strive to embrace modernity while staying true to their traditions and continue to be active, peaceful and law abiding citizens dedicated to the betterment of all humanity.

The present leader is the 53rd al-Dai al-Mutlaq, His Holiness Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin. Syedna Saifuddin assumed office in January 2014, succeeding his father and predecessor, the 52nd al-Dai al-Mutlaq, His Holiness Dr Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin.

‘It befits our brethren, may Allah give them strength, to not despise any field of knowledge, or shun a particular book, or bear prejudice towards a certain faith. Indeed our philosophy and our faith encompass all faiths and all knowledge.’
