Anti-Politically Correct Occultists
who ever you are, whatever you do, if you like the movie 'velvet gold mine' then you automatically have no power.|
p.s. liking the movie velvet gold man automatically damnes you to hades. also, the line sperating a child from an adult may by useful in some circumstances, but i feel the notion is very suspect. there are only individual egos crazy for love. if you want to be loved it's easy. first you have to know yourself, then you have fix that part of you that wants to challange people. humor others utterly, compliment them and concede to their wants. accept the images they want to portray of themselves as fact. lie and agree with them. if you do these things, while being well spoken, you will win over everyone. however, it is no real prize to sway others, for most are worthless. the right hand offers true fulfillment. only a child feels power in tricking other children into serving him. you stroke people's egos so their love for you can stroke yours. you may be more cunning, but your power is fragile and dependant on the weak need.
serve god in honesty and people will respect you. lie and serve the devil-beast and you will win some, and then creat enemies of your former victems. your social victems. it is rightious to express your true opinion even if you lose face for it. however, do not punish. god does not will you to mock the weak needs. god wants you to punish predetors who pray on the socially malleable. i will seek out clever and cunning machiavellians and assault them head on. they are not used to dealing with a strong right hand.
i vow to grow past my disgust and pretect the fearful weak needs. they may be abhorrid and uninteresting. but their lies are lies of desperation. sometimes a child is naughty, thats why you have rock and roll.
hey hey hey. let me tell you something. do you know what taqiyya is? do you know? I bet you don't you western townie scum. the only religious expression you are capable of is buying a little miniature buddha at elysiam fields or the mall. maybe you go to www.church of satan.com? you fucking loser. you would be lost if a demon visited you in the middle of the night and told you he was the compt saint germain and outlined some wondrous learning which you could potentially master.
fool, you think esoteria is for you? then answer me this, why do you seek amusements?
"Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters Unbelief, except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith, but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty." Sura 16:106 -
In Shi'a Islamic tradition, Taqiyya (التقية) is the dissimulation of one's religious beliefs when one fears for one's life, the lives of one's family members, or for the preservation of the faith. It is most often used in times of persecution or danger. Some Sunnis assert that Taqiyya is an act of hypocrisy that serves to conceal the truth. According to them, Taqiyya constitutes a lack of faith and trust in God because the person who conceals his beliefs to spare himself from danger is fearful of humans, when he should be fearful of God only.
Obviously this Sunni arguement is a conspiracy against the house of Ali, for they tamper and prosteletise propoganda in order to occult Ture Islam, for they are in the service of powerful demons and will ill on the Maudi.
basically, Muhammad had united the Bedu and north Arab peoples under Islam. and become leader of all Islam. so it came to pass that muhammad grew sick, he was to die early after being poisoned by a Jew. the jew had convinced himself that muhammad was a hebrew prohphet of sorts, and that this new radical arab leader would harkon a new era of Israel. however when this jew met with muhammad they debated and disagreed sharply on interpretation of religion. muhammad felt that judaism was close, but no cigar, and that all monotheistic relligions were altered and sub-correct. jews and christians worshipped allah, but not ultimately. the jew saw this as a betrayal of his traditional hebrew sentiments and had Muhammad's food poisoned after inviting him to dinner. how typical of a jew don't you agree?
anyhow, so muhammad died, king of the arabs. yet he had not chosen his successor. the arab aristocracy, now with an arab state to run, saw muhammad's close friend Abu Bakre as a wise choice for the new leader of islam, called the calif. simply meaning Prince of the Faithful in arabic. my dog just fucking farted. i can't beleive his insides are so rotten.
however, muhammad had a step son named ali. ali and his followers stipulated that as muhammad's only heredital son, ali was the most natural choice for kalif.ali was very pious, he was very much in support of giving more rights to non arab converts to islam. this piety however made him unpopuler with the vile greedy arab aristocracy. ali was ppassed over and abu bakre became kalif. he spent much of his short reign suppressing rebellious tribes in the Ridda Wars
uthman succeded abu bakre, becomming second Caliph. he ruled from 644 until 656. often accused of corruption, he apointed many of his family to positions of statehood. he reigned for twelve years, and during his rule, all of iran, most of north africa, the caucasus and cyprus were added to the islamic empire. uthman was filled with avarice and nepotism. he was a king, not first amung equals, as muhammad had intended.
many of his governors were accused of corruption and misrule. ssome of his kinsmen were also involved in the murder of a son of Abu Bakr, the first caliph, which further alienated many influential Muslims. abu Bakr's daughter Aisha, muhammads widow, was particularly vehement in her denunciations of Uthman.
one of uthman's actions, controversial at the time, is now the act for which he is remembered. He headed a committee that established the basic text of the qur'an. Various muslim centers, like Kufa and Damascus, had begun to develop their own traditions for reciting and writing down the Qur'an. uthman feared that the nascent Islamic empire would fall apart in religious controversy if it did not have a sacred text recognized by everyone. Sometime during the end of his reign, the committee produced a text. Uthman had it copied and sent copies to each of the Muslim cities and garrison towns, commanding that variant versions of the Qur'an be destroyed, and only his version used. Many devout believers believed that his actions were high-handed and accused Uthman of tampering with the sacred book.
anger at uthman grew so general that soldiers from egypt and iraq traveled to medina to address their grievances to uthman directly. according to some accounts, uthman is said to have promised to mend his ways, then, when the delegations had left, reneged on his promises. the soldiers returned and laid siege to his house for more than twenty days in 656. despite the crowds outside his home, Uthman refused to shed Muslim blood, strictly observing Muhammad's commandments in this regard. the siege ended when some of the rebels broke into Uthman's house and killed the caliph as he sat reading the qur'an. uthman was eventually buried in medina.
thats right. they busted up into his kribb and fucking stabbed his face. they stabbed his fucking face with a spear. then they tossed his body over the cliff and into the streets. children witnissed this carnage and grew happy at the sight of the evil false caliph torn usunder by divine providense.
ALI BECAME CALIPH. ALI ALI ALI. THIS IS THE STORY OF THE DIVINE MAUDI, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CALIPH IN THE WORLD TODAY. HE TALKS A GREAT DEAL AND BRAGS INDEEDY, OF A MUSCULER PUNCH THATS INCREDIBLY SPEEDY. HE SWINGS WITH A LEFT, HE SWINGS WITH A RIGHT. LOOK AT THE TRUE IMAM CARRY THE FIGHT.
ali became the first imam, the rightly guided caliph. his true piety be known. no one can stop him. this is when the truth of muhaamad's teaching was finally realised. the demons no longer had sway, the avarice of the ummayid was broken. ali was leader.
"Ali ibn Abi Talib (Arabic: علي بن أبي طالب) (ca. 599 – January 661 CE) was an early Islamic leader. He is seen by the Sunnis as the fourth and last of the Khulafā' ar-Rāshidūn (rightly guided caliphs). Muslims of Shi'a persuasion consider him as the first imam and the first rightful caliph. Caliph Ali was the cousin of Prophet Muhammad, and after marriage to Fatima, he also became the Prophet's son-in-law. Some Shi'i think that Ali and Fatima, as well as the wives of Prophet Muhammad had an additional cause for disaffection with Abu Bakr.. Abu Bakr argued that the property had been held by the Prophet in trust for the community, and was rightfully the property of the state -- despite Ali's rejoinder that Muhammad's revelations included accounts of prophetic inheritance (Qur'an 27:16, 21:89). Abu Bakr gave state pensions to Muhammad's widows, but Muhammad's blood relatives, Ali, Fatimah and Ibn Abbas, did not receive even that much.
After Fatima's death, Ali again claimed her inheritance, but was denied with the same argument. The caliphs who followed Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman, also refused to return the various properties, whether to Ali or to Muhammad's widows. Shi'a Muslims regard this as yet another instance of the persecution of Muhammad's lineage, the Ahl al-Bayt, at the hands of the caliphs they regard as usurpers."
In 656 CE, the third caliph Uthman, was murdered in his own house, in Madinah, by rebellious Muslim soldiers. Madinah, now a large city and the capital of an empire stretching from Africa to Central Asia, fell into chaos. In the crisis, some Muslims turned to Ali, who had been for years a faithful and steady lieutenant of Muhammad and his successors, and urged him to seek the caliphate. Ali at first refused. He is said to have been horrified by the assassination of Uthman, and did not wish to appear to be profiting from the situation. But his supporters persevered, and Ali finally allowed himself to be proclaimed caliph.
Some opponents at the time claimed that he had connived at the murder of Uthman, or at the very least been negligent in seeking the murderers. However, most current and historical opinion absolves him of any blame. Besides his extremely high status in Shi'a Islam, he is also revered by Sunnis as the last of the truly exemplary successors of Muhammad.
Almost the first act of his caliphate was to put down a rebellion led by Talha and az-Zubayr (two eminent companions of Muhammad), who were urged on by Aisha, Muhammad's widow. In the view of Shi'as, she was a bitter enemy of Ali, and one of the chief hindrances to his advancement to the caliphate. The rebel army was defeated at the Battle of Basra (also known as the Battle of the Camel); Talha was killed, Zubayr fled and killed later, and Aisha was captured and escorted with all respect to Medina, where she was given a pension.
Soon thereafter, Ali dismissed several provincial governors, some of whom were relatives of Uthman, and replaced them with companions of the Prophet and trusted aides such as Malik ibn Ashter and Salman the Persian)). Ali then transfered his capital from Medina to Kufa, the Muslim garrison city in what is now Iraq. The capital of the province of Syria, Damascus, was held by Mu'awiyah, the governor of Syria and a kinsman of Uthman, Ali's slain predecessor.
Mu'awiyah raised an army and marched against Ali, demanding vengeance for the death of Uthman. A prolonged battle took place in July 657 CE in the Battle of Siffin, near the Euphrates; the battle seemed to be turning in favor of Ali, Malik ibn Ashter being very close to Muawiyas camp, when a number of the opposing army, fixing copies of the Qur'an to the points of their spears, exclaimed that "the matter ought to be settled by reference to this book, which forbids Muslims to shed each other's blood."
At this point, the soldiers of Ali refused to fight any longer, and demanded that the issue be referred to arbitration. Ali and his followers are said to have disagreed over the choice of advocate for Ali. Ali wanted Malik ibn Ashter or Ibn Abbas; his followers are said to have objected. Finally, Abu Musa al Asha'ri was chosen as Ali's advocate. Amr ibn al-As, a veteran diplomat, was chosen to act for Mu'awiyah. It is claimed that `Amr persuaded Abu Musa that it would be to the advantage of Islam that neither candidate should reign, and asked him to give his decision first. Abu Musa having proclaimed that he deposed both Ali and Mu'awiyah, `Amr declared that he also deposed Ali, but invested Mu'awiyah with the caliphate. This decision greatly injured the cause of Ali, which was still further weakened by the loss of Egypt to Mu'awiya's forces.
According to tradition, three Muslim zealots (purists later termed Kharijites) had agreed to assassinate Ali, Mu'awiyah and `Amr, as the authors of disastrous feuds among the faithful. The assassins sent against Mu'awiyan and `Amr failed; the only assassin who succeeded was the one who attacked Ali.
Ali suffered a mortal head wound the 19th of Ramadan while he was performing morning prayers. The sword that wounded him is said to have been poisoned.
Before Ali died, when offered milk, he is said to have asked if his assasin, Abdur Rahman bin Muljam al Sarimi, had been offered milk as well. Ali further decreed that if he was not to survive, then Bin Muljam should be killed with no more than one stroke, as he had only struck Ali once.
Ali died on the 21st of Ramadan (three days after he was stabbbed) in Kufa in 661 CE.
A splendid mosque called Mashad Ali was afterwards erected near the city at Najaf, the place of his burial (although some believe he is buried at Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan).
Descendants of Ali ibn Abi Talib
Ali had eight wives after Fatima's death, and in all, it is said, thirty-three children. He had two sons by Fatima, Hassan and Hussein. Hasan is said to have refrained from publicly claiming the caliphate, so as to prevent further bloodshed among Muslims. Mu'awiyah I thus became caliph and established the Umayyad dynasty of caliphs. Hassan is, however, revered by most Shi'a as the second imam; his brother Hussein is reckoned as the third, except by the Shi'a Ismaili, who consider him the second imam.
Ali's descendants by Fatima are known as sharifs, sayyeds, or sayyids. These are honorific titles in Arabic, sharif meaning 'noble' and sayyed/sayyid meaning 'lord' or 'sir'. As Muhammad's only descendents, they are respected by both Sunni and Shi'a, though the Shi'a place much more emphasis and value on the distinction.
Many Muslim notables are descendents of Muhammad. The Hashemite royal families of Jordan and Iraq, the Alaouite royal family of Morocco, and the Aga Khans of the Ismaili community claim direct descent from the Prophet through Ali and Fatima. There are also many humbler sayyeds whose only distinction may be the title in front of their name, or the right to wear a black turban (a sign of Alid descent in some communities).
Ali is greatly respected by most Muslims (the Ibadi might be the only dissenters). The Shi'a in particular venerate him as second only to the Prophet. They celebrate the anniversaries of his martyrdom and birth. The Shi'a version of the confession of faith (shahada) also includes an explicit reference to Ali. (This can be spoken during the call to prayer, but it is not obligatory).
Many Westerners have also found Ali an attractive figure. One contemporary academic, Wilferd Madelung, says:
"In face of the fake Umayyad claim to legitimate sovereignty in Islam as God's Vicegerents on earth, and in view of Umayyad treachery, arbitrary and divisive government, and vindictive retribution, they came to appreciate his honesty, his unbending devotion to the reign of Islam, his deep personal loyalties, his equal treatment of all his supporters, and his generosity in forgiving his defeated enemies."
In the eyes of the later Muslims he was remarkable for learning and wisdom, and there are extant collections of proverbs and verses which bear his name: the Sentences of Ali. The most famous collection of Ali's speeches and letters is the Nahj al-Balāgha meaning "The Peak of Eloquence". A few famous quotes from his works:
* Inability is a disaster; patience is bravery; abstinence is a treasure, self-restraint is a shield; and the best companion is submission to Divine Will.
* Socialize with people in such a manner that when you die, they should weep for you and as long as you live, they should long for your company.
* Greed is a permanent slavery.
* Submission to God's will is the cure of the misery of the heart.
The line of Mohammed (pbuh) through Ali and Hussein became extinct in 873CE when the last Shia Imam, Al-Askari, who had no brothers disappeared within days of inheriting the title at the age of four. The Shias refused, however, to accept that he had died, preferring to believe that he was merely "hidden" and would return. When after several centuries this failed to happen, spiritual power passed to the ulema, a council of twelve scholars who elected a supreme Imam. The best known modern example of the Shia supreme Imam is the late Ayyatollah Khomeni, whose portrait hangs in many Shia homes. The Shia Imam has come to be imbued with Pope-like infallibility and the Shia religious hierarchy is not dissimilar in structure and religious power to that of the Catholic Church within Christianity. Sunni Islam, in contrast, more closely resembles the myriad independent churches of American Protestantism. Sunnis do not have a formal clergy, just scholars and jurists, who may offer non-binding opinions. Shias believe that their supreme Imam is a fully spiritual guide, inheriting some of Muhammad's inspiration (nasut or light) . Their imams are believed to be inerrant interpreters of law and tradition. Shia theology is distinguished by its glorification of Ali. In Shia Islam there is a strong theme of martyrdom and suffering, focusing on deaths of Ali and, particularly, Hussein plus other important figures in the Shia succession. Shi`ism attracted other dissenting groups, especially representatives of older non-Arab (Mawali) civilizations (Persian, Indian, etc.) that felt they had not been treated fairly by the Arab Muslims.
The Imam is god's messenger on earth. Infallible. Shia reguard him as God's Vicegarent on Earth. the Light of the World, the True Intepretor of all divine will. Muhammad's divine essance passes to his son's in succession. The Imam posses the Nasut, the divine consiousness that God first gave Muhammad. There can only be one Imama at a time, as only one can posses the Nasut essense.
"O my God! I was one with you, until you manifested yourself by fragmenting your Unity ... I am great like you, in your supreme power..."
-These pronouncements might suggest that the Imam is suffering from megalomania, but it is interesting that he insists that he himself is nothing at all; he is simply an appearance of God, as are all the Imams. For the Isma'ilis, everything is really God anyway, so the divinity of the Imam is not surprising. The whole of the material world, including the Imam, is merely an appearance, a virtual reality. We are such stuff as dreams are made on.-
The subtle body may persist unchanged under different physical appearances or may appear under more than one physical form simultaneously. If the physical body of the Imam ceases to exist, either by natural death or as the result of accident or assassination, the subtle body is not harmed. The Isma'ilis believed that this explains the resurrection of Jesus, and they claimed that Muhammad, likewise, came to life three days after he was buried and appeared to 'Ali and Abu Bakr. A similar explanation is advanced for the reported appearance of Isma'il in Basra three days after his death.
Although the Imamate is transmitted directly from the Divine level, every Imam has to be designated formally as such by his predecessor. It isn't a question of making him an Imam, for he is that already, but rather of recognizing what is in fact the case. An Imam knows who his successor will be even before the child is born. In general, the Imamate passes from father to eldest son, though there are exceptions. The Imamate passes to the new incumbent only when his father is at the point of death, so there can never be two Imams at the same time.
Although Ali had been murdered, his Nasut had been passed on to Hussein, the second Imam,and from him down to me in succession.
-The Imam is an ordinary human being in appearance, subject to the ordinary accidents and changes of human existence, but in his essential nature he is divine. When the physical body of the Imam dies, a subtle substance emanates from the corpse under celestial influence and gradually separates from it over three days. Attracted first by the moon, it passes upwards through the various heavenly spheres until it reaches the sun, which helps to free it from any impurities it may have acquired during its connection with the body. The other planets, especially Jupiter and Venus, also participate in this process, which Corbin calls "cosmic alchemy". Later, the purified essences descend in the light of the moon like dew and settle on the surface of pure water or on fruit that does not require to be cooked before eating. Divine Providence so arranges matters that these will be consumed by the Imam of the time and his wife, and will form the embryo of the future Imam.-
-When the Imam-to-be reaches the age of four years he becomes the focus for certain discarnate entities who occupy a high level in the Isma'ili hierarchy. These merge with one another in the boy and become his soul; in so doing they gain fulfilment for themselves, while for the future Imam the event constitutes a second birth. Each of the entities takes on the function of a bodily organ, and the development is completed by the addition of the Divine Intelligence. This transformation involves the acquisition by the young Imam of a subtle body (nasut), distinct from and additional to his physical body. The subtle body cannot be seen by anyone except certain sages. The Imam thus has three sheaths or levels of existence: his physical body, his subtle body, and a Form of Light which is his Imamate.-
During his father's lifetime the future Imam makes rapid progress through the various degrees of knowledge. If it should happen that the father dies before his son's esoteric initiation is complete, the son receives an infusion from the subtle body of his father to make good the deficiency. During infancy, however, an Imam cannot carry out his spiritual functions, and these may be taken over by a proxy Imam, as seems to have happened after the death of the seventh Imam, Muhammad ibn Isma'il. During his minority the Imam remains hidden and is accompanied by three high-ranking members of the Isma'ili hierarchy, who also remain hidden but who govern the Isma'ili community via three lesser dignitaries who represent them in the outer world. This "occultation" (satr) is a difficult time for the Isma'ili community, which can no longer see the Imam or receive divine grace through him. Occultation is thus a testing time for the faithful, and it is also a severe trial for the Imam himself. He must remain in silence and take no part in outward Isma'ili activities. He may also have to take on himself the spiritual work of the whole hierarchy, which is a difficult and exhausting task. But this testing time, which constitutes part of the spiritual training of the Imam, does not in any way diminish his glory. Such periods of occultation may be major or minor and occur as part of the great cosmic cycles. I, Philip Hudson am the True Imam, and I have chosen now to come out of hiding.
The task of every Isma'ili was to comprehend as far as possible the real nature of the Imam by cultivating his interior vision. It was not a question of seeing the external appearance of the Imam, for that meant nothing as I am at MCC three days a week, but of grasping my true spiritual significance. The way to do this was by inceasing self-knowledge, since every creature, including oneself, is in essence an aspect of divinity. In the words of the Prophet, "He who knows his own soul knows his Lord." The knowledge referred to here is not of course an acquaintance with facts or theories but an inner transformation. By progressing step by step through the Isma'ili hierarchy the pupil gradually refined his awareness, polishing his soul like a mirror until it could reflect Truth without distortion. We may picture the Isma'ili faithful as sitting round the Imam in concentric spiritual circles, one inside another with the Imam at the centre. Wherever you happen to be, there is one circle inside yours, which is your "limit", and another outside, for which you are like an Intelligence. Your task is to move inwards, circle by circle, until you reach the Imam.
The purpose of the Isma'ili Summons or Invitation was not merely to convince people of the truth of the Isma'ili doctrines; the scope of the Isma'ili vision was far wider than that. The Isma'ili missionary activity was a reflection and a continuation of the activity of the Celestial Adam, who took on the task of bringing his confused and benighted companions back to the Light. For the Isma'ilis, human beings, and indeed all material creation, were not merely made in the image of celestial beings, they actually were those beings who had fallen into the ocean of matter and now were struggling to free themselves, like flies stuck to flypaper. The Isma'ili Summons was thus a truly momentous undertaking of cosmic dimensions and significance.
If the Imam is threatened, as when the Mongol's took Alamut, he will enter into a period of deception. He will flee from reality, where no demon and no man can sense his presense. This occultation is an extreme state of Taqiyya. In Sarasota Florida I am divinely hidden from all enemies. I am the least any would suspect. I use Taqiyya to cover my tracts. I pose as a Slav or Russian. I pretend to be christian for months at a time and even confuse my closest allies as to my true intent. I look you right in the eye and tell you I am russian, even though I am not at all. I go to Church every sunday and take communion at an Orthodox Christian Church even though I am only there because I like to hear Byzentine chants and Greek recitation.
After you have heard all of this, how could I not be the Imam?
