The Dawoodi Bohras of Australia & New Zealand

Six hundred families of the Dawoodi Bohra community have found a home Down Under and have been leading peaceful and productive lives along Australasian harbours since the early 1980s.

Arriving first in Sydney and then gradually spreading to different parts of the region, the community today has a pan-Australasian footprint, making it a valuable part of it’s vibrant and inclusive society.


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 Australia and New Zealand, to always remain loyal and law-abiding citizens and wholeheartedly contribute to the society in which they live.
