Salaat followed by Quran recitation and the main talk by Sibtain Panjwani on The Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Community Diaspora: An Exploratory Overview.

This exploratory talk will provide some reflection about the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Community diaspora which is part of the global Indian community. It will begin by providing a rationale and conceptual framework used for the study and delve briefly into the circumstances under which the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheries had to migrate from India and then emigrate to East-Africa, Europe, Canada, United States of America and elsewhere. It will explore the extent of acculturation and transformation that affected the community, its current challenges and whether it is able to overcome them.


Dr. Sibtain Panjwani, former Secretary General of the World Federation of KSIMC (1996 to 2003) is the founder of The Awakening Project For KSI Muslim Community. It is a worldwide grassroots-orientated initiative that seeks participation and reform from community members themselves. Having qualified as a dentist from the University of Manchester and obtained his MA in Medical Law and Ethics from Kings College London and a PhD in Law from the University of Essex, he went on to work closely with the late President - Marhum Mulla Asgherali M M Jaffer at the World Federation. After his death, Dr. Sibtain Panjwani continued to be active in Shii and wider Muslim community affairs. He also has a special interest in bioethics in Islam having taught undergraduate student at The Islamic College, London.

CHAPTER 25

THE BELIEF CONCERSING PURGATORY (al-A'raf)

 Says the Shaykh Abu Ja'far: Our belief concerning al-A'raf (Purgatory) is that it is a wall between Paradise and Hell, and upon it there will be "men who will recognize all (persons) by their peculiar marks" [7, 44]. These men will be the Prophet and his awsiya'. No one will be able to enter the Garden except he who recognizes them and him whom they recognize. And no one will enter the Fire except he who denies them (their rights), and him whom they (the Prophet & Imams) deny (as not belonging to their party).

And in the Purgatory there will be others who will await the command of Allah, whether He punish or forgive them.
