We are the Portland, Oregon community of Dawoodi Bohras.
We reside in the cities of Portland, Hillsboro, Beaverton and Tigard as part of greater Portland area. Many of our community members work and contribute in the Silicon Forest cluster of high-tech companies located in Portland metropolitan area in northwest Oregon.
We worship at our community center located at 19500 SW Alexander Street, Beaverton, OR 97003.
In the past few years, our leader His Holiness Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) has sent his family members every year to our city for preparation of Ashara Mubaraka commemorating Imam Hussain’s ultimate sacrifice. [Ashara Mubaraka, meaning the “blessed ten days”, begins on the first of the Islamic New Year (September 1 2019) and culminates ten days later on Yaum-e-Ashura.]
Love of our country is part of our faith.
As the 52nd Dai-al-Mutlaq, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, stated:
“With great energy and vigor, dedicate yourselves to activities that contribute to the development of your cities and benefit their inhabitants. Become exemplary citizens through your wholehearted participation in projects and enterprises that contribute to the progress of the country you reside in. This is my counsel to Bohras the world over.”
We are proud residents of the state of Oregon and United States, and we continuously seek to contribute to our communities in positive and productive ways.
