We are the American Dawoodi Bohra community of South Florida.
We are originally from India, where we are known as a community of traders. Through trade, we settled in different parts of the world, and established our connections with Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia. Today, with the blessings and guidance from our Spiritual Leader, Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, we live in peace and harmony wherever we settle and decide to call “home sweet home.”
Over the years, the Miami/Fort Lauderdale/Palm Beach Community and South west Florida of Dawoodi Bohra has slowly grown to a community of approximately 32 families. As with all hard working and responsible Americans, we too enjoy working in a variety of professions including business, education, health care, law, tourism, engineering, hospitality, technology, and home-making.
As our community grows, we are proud of our positive and impactful contribution as citizens to the American society. Our diverse backgrounds, combined with the local culture, has created a rich and beautiful tradition for all our members, especially our kids. The beautiful weather in Florida has also attracted a couple of “snowbird” families from the North. With the blessings and guidance of Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, we are committed and determined to working with all communities locally in order to make a positive and impactful contribution to South Florida – “Alone, we can do little. Together, we do a lot.” – Helen Keller.
Our Community Centre (Markaz) is very conveniently located near the Fort Lauderdale Airport with very easy access to all major highways like I95 , I595 and the Turnpike.
