The Dawoodi Bohras of the United Kingdom

The Dawoodi Bohras are a Muslim community who have lived in the United Kingdom since the 1960s. There are around one million members worldwide, including over 2,000 families in the UK. Members of the community are spread across 9 cities from Manchester to London. Despite relatively small numbers, Dawoodi Bohras all over the country play important roles in their local societies while adhering to Islamic religious practices, including reciting the Holy Quran, the five daily prayers, fasting during the month of Ramadan and supporting local and national charities.


Love of our country is a part of our faith

Throughout the world, Dawoodi Bohras are guided by their leader, the 53rd al-Dai al-Mutlaq, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin. He encourages his followers, including those in the UK, to always remain loyal and law-abiding citizens and wholeheartedly contribute to the society in which they live.

The Prophet Mohammed has taught Muslims that love for one’s country is an integral part of faith. With a focus on hard work and education, many Dawoodi Bohras run successful businesses: creating jobs, generating wealth, and contributing to the development of our nation.  With an emphasis on higher education for both men and women, the community includes many doctors, IT professionals, teachers, academics, public servants and business owners spread over most of the United Kingdom. Dawoodi Bohras are proud of the contributions they make to British society and to the diverse fabric that underpins the nation’s rich democratic values.
