I'm sorry Ustaz Hussein...but I've just been wondering...are you the original writer of the previous post? (all the > arrows make it look like it's been copy pasted from an email that's been forwarded :?)
If Allah assists you, there is none that can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, then who is there that can assist you after Him? And on Allah should the believers rely (Qur'an 3:160)

Though criticims in the Khoja culture is a way of life but it can never be labbeled as a solution of problems.
Alakulihaal, I am in Syria for Shiite religious studies. Its 6 months now, i am in Syria. I have come here though through the instigation of the Iranian counsultate but though through friends help also that i can never forget.
I praise Allah who guided me to the vilayah of Imam Ali (as) and i ask Allah (swt) to do the same to others who are still in spiritual darkness.

May Allah be with you!
