Understanding Islam Part 1
by Peter Farley

In AD 610, the year Heraclius took the throne of the Byzantine
Empire, the prophet Mohammed began to preach to the Arabs a religion
that became known as Islam. By 634, rising Islamic forces threatened
the whole of the Byzantine empire. War now often became holy war
between rival religions. Byzantine armies began to march behind icons—
painted figures of Christian holy figures—and looked to these icons
for protection in battle.

Islam is based on the teachings given in The Qu\'ran—also called the
Koran, given to the Prophet Mohammed, a former camel-driver, by the
Angel Gabriel, Minister of Allah (the Arabic word for `God\'). During
the various visitations, Gabriel dictated the Word of Allah to
Mohammed, who memorized all he heard for later transcription. This
holy book is credited with a magnificent revival of learning, art,
science and civilization along with new discoveries which were a
vital contribution to human knowledge. Moreover, the language and
poetry of The Qu\'ran in the original Arabic seem so sublime that this
book became the foundation stone for even the rules of Arabic poetry,
displaying what we have already said about the hypnotic effects of
the sound-encoded holy books of the world.

The religious center of Islam is Mecca, originally an ancient Aryan
shrine. This was most aptly demonstrated in history when it was a
place of prominent worship to the Hindus. According to conventional
history, the Hindu religion we know today was a product of the
ancient Aryans. The use of the swastika came from the Hindu religion
and appears prominently in Hindu temples such as those in Calcutta
and Bombay.

The central figure of worship in Islam is the Kaaba. As in the
Biblical version, Allah is said to have ordered Abraham to leave his
home in Babylon, and was then led by the angel Gabriel to the source
of Zemzem (water from the first popularized site of the Kaaba)—
another ancient sacred site built over a sacred spring.

Mohammed cleaned out all the old pagan gods of the Kaaba,
particularly those of the Aryan Hindus, but he did recognize the
primary ancient god of the Kaaba: Allah. As with the choice of Yahweh
over the other gods by the Jews, Abraham is said to have chosen Allah
as the only one he realized.

Here again is the same story we have heard before from one religion
to another, the movement from the worship of many gods to the worship
of one god—much like the Hebrews did—from what seems like a choice to
no choice at all. Like the corporations of the New World Order
producing the same product only under different names, so too has
Lucifer seemingly offered a choice of which `face\' of his we accept.
Zemzem, the water from the first popularized site of the Kaaba is
said to signify `the Great Luminary,\' which kaballistically speaking
corresponds with Venus (or Lucifer as we have heard this symbolism
used before). And, once again, we have Lucifer setting himself up as
the one god of a people while playing brother against brother in true
Machiavellian style.

Abraham\'s job was to rebuild the Kaaba, and once in Mecca, Gabriel
gave him the Holy Stone to place there. Abraham taught the people to
revere the stone and to sacrifice animals to it. The blood of the
animals was put on the stone and it accordingly became dark. The
stone is often described as being `black-like\', but it is also
sometimes described as a very dark blood red. The darkness of the
stone is also said to be the result of the sins of man.

The Black Stone was, however, originally part of something much
greater. What is left today is only a fragment of a very sacred
object, much as the Jews now worship their face of God through what
are left of the stones of the Temple (`the wailing wall\'), and the
Celtic Druids used their stones for the purpose of worship and

Like Judaism, Islam also understands the importance of the repetition
of sacred texts for the purpose of transmitting higher knowledge
and/or indoctrination. Most Muslims attempt to read through the
entire Qur\'an, and many men go to the mosque each night for prayers
known as tarawih during which the whole text is read through. These
voluntary prayers consist of either eight extra rakahs after the
compulsory isha prayer (if Muslims are following the sunnah of the
prophet(or twenty extra rakahs --the practice started by Caliph
Umar). Many mosques invite trained huffaz (people who know the Qur\'an
by heart) to lead these special prayers.

While modern day people of the West might think that holy war or
Jihad is a basic element of the Islamic religion, Ruqaiyyah Maqsood
in his book Islam, explains that it is not:

\"True Islamic jihad in fact insists that killing for the sake of
religion is wrong. Religion should never become an oppressor. People
should never be forced to accept things that they don\'t believe. The
principle of jihad is to fight against tyranny and oppression, to
bring freedom and justice and a just peace. The word `jihad\' actually
means `striving\', and in the spiritual sense, it is the constant
battle against sin in all its aspects.\"

Islam has produced many noted authors, poets and artists who remain
fairly unknown to us here in the West. One of these great thinkers
and writers was a Muslim Indian by the name of Syed Ahmad Khan (1817-
1898)—one of the incarnations of Enjliou (the Creator Son of this SuperUniverse)
upon the planet, one which paradoxically overlapped that of another of his
incarnations that we
shall deal with later.

Sir Syed published a magazine in Urdu called The Improvement of
Manners and Morals, devoted mainly to social and religious problems.
In his wisdom, Syed could see that the Muslims in India would make no
progress if they did not accept the fact that British rule had come
to stay indefinitely. Thus he wrote voluminously to allay British
misgivings about the Muslims and Islam itself. As Enjliou, there is
still great concern for His creation and for helping ease the strife
that has been caused by the initial flaw that created Lucifer.
As one of the first modernists in the world of Islam, he believed
correctly that at the time, the people of India were not sufficiently
integrated to be able to run a democratic government without its
becoming a disguised role of the Hindu over the Muslims. His
inclusion of Western knowledge and thinking is part of what has
helped make the Pakistanis one of the most advanced Muslim nations in
the world, Syed Ahmad Khan believed passionately in keeping the
Mysteries out of Islam. From his work Religion and the Supernatural:
\"There are so many natural mysteries in the Universe which are beyond
the understanding of men that they cannot be counted . . . these
mysteries which we watch everyday no longer strike us as miraculous
and we become indifferent to them, but when man begins to believe in
some religion or considers a person holy, he always attributes
miracles to them. He accepts any miracles which are attributed to
them; indeed he does not accept the truth of a religion or the
holiness of a person without those miracles . . .

\"The prophet of God (Muhammed), on whom be peace and blessings,
reiterated again and again: \"I am a man like you; it has been
revealed to me that your Lord is the one God;\" but people were not
content with this, and ascribed miracles to him. They base their
faith in the prophet upon these miracles.

\"The same attitude is adopted toward the saints; until it is accepted
that they performed miracles people do not find it possible to
believe that they were saints.

\"In short it has become a habit with men that they ascribe miracles
and supernatural attributes to an object or a person whom they
consider to be holy or sacred. This is why men have interpolated
supernatural factors into Islam, which are not worthy of belief, but
such credulous persons believe in them.

\"However, this is a grievous mistake. Any religion which is true or
claims to be true can not contain such elements in it as are contrary
to nature and offend human reason, so that a sensible person would
find it impossible to believe in them. A true faith in its pristine
purity is absolutely free from such supernatural and irrational
elements. It is always at a later time that those who hanker for the
super natural interpolate into a supernatural and miraculous
elements. I am sincerely convinced about Islam that it is absolutely
free from such strange stories and unnatural and irrational
mysteries. My God save us from such mystery worshippers.\"

In the case of the Kaaba (the `Spirit\' and the `Heart\' in ancient
Egyptian), what the Islamic religion is indeed worshipping is a relic
of the Aryan race and religion which came before them. The stone in
the Kaaba is a piece of rock from the destroyed planet of Maldek,
brought with them as a reminder of what can happen if they allow
their emotions to run amuck. Unfortunately, from the events currently
taking place in the Middle East, the lesson has been all too quickly
forgotten. As we have seen as one of the themes in this book, people
worship their ancestral roots on this planet as a way of also
worshipping and remembering their celestial roots—though as in the
case of the Kaaba, the significance and remembrance has been lost to
all but a few.

Once again we also see the use of religion here to bind together a
fragmented society of peoples, much as Constantine had done in the
Byzantine Empire. Coincidentally, as the story goes, since the
quarreling tribes could not decide who should have the honor of
placing the stone in the central location when the enclosure for the
Kaaba was rebuilt, it was a young Mohammed to whom the choice was
given. In his Solomon-like wisdom, Mohammed had one member from each
tribe grab a hold of a corner of the cloth carrying the stone, and
together they all put it in place.

The Islamic word for God, Allah, like Yahweh, is composed of both the
male and female principles: \"AL or EL\" the male principle – LA or
lah\" the female principle. The female principle as part of the
Creation is still adhered to and taught in the Arabian mystery

In the Koran, Jesus is mentioned thirty-five times under a number of
impressive titles including \"Messenger of God\" and \"Messiah.\" At no
point, however, is he regarded as anything other than a mortal
prophet, a forerunner of Mohammed, and a spokesman for a single
supreme God. The original Koran also maintains that Jesus did not die
on the cross: \"they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but
they thought they did,\" are its words.

Understanding Islam Part 2

The difficulties inherent in Islam are the number of its followers
who are of Arab descent. The Nine address this issue in the book The Only Planet
of Choice, saying that the Arabs are a people who \"do not permit others to
fulfill their physical life upon Planet Earth for its full evolutionary cycle,\"
and laying the blame for this on the conformity of the Muslims.

\"What is necessary also is the allowance of complete education for
their women, for keeping their women in ignorance then breeds
ignorance again (for women are the teachers of the young). . . for in
controlling women nations stop their own growth.\"

As to the origins of these difficulties, one has only to refer back
to the Old Testament to find `God\'s\' words about Ishmael. Although
he was Abraham\'s son, Ishmael, the progenitor of the Arab people,
would be what Jehovah described as \"A wild ass of a man, with his
hand against everyone, and everyone\'s hand against him; and he shall
live at odds with all his kin.\"

Was this part of the \"opposition\" (Lucifer)? the Nine were once asked-- \"Yes. .
. the opposition has a major vested interest in keeping the
Arabs and Israelis in conflict with each other – and also in their
own societies. . . Israel has become a focus of both the opposition
and its servants.\"

And who is it that most likes to pit brother against brother? Here
from the Koran the identity of Allah:

\"Allah created the sexes, the male and the female, from a drop of
ejected semen....He who is the Lord of Sirius.\" (Sura 53,The Koran)
And who do we know to be Lord of the Dark forces of Sirius? Lucifer.
Does this mean that Mohammed was an incarnation of Lucifer as we have learned so
many other religious figures have been? No. Mohammed was simply another dupe,
like Abraham, like so many others before them and as so many are today–we have
all been duped by an extremely clever Wizard-like figure hiding behind the Veil
of Time and dimensionality—the Hidden One, Lucifer.

According to Dr Munawar Ahmad Anees, despite the fact that some
Muslims mislaid zeal appears to portray the Qur\'an as a book of human
embryology as exhibited in the quote above, there are many verses
that point to a straight-forward guidance on human creation, but one
that ties in very well with the history we have been following:
\"We have created [every one of] you out of dust, then out of a drop
of sperm, then out of a germ-cell, then out of an embryonic lump
complete [in itself] and yet incomplete, so that We might make [your
origin] clear unto you. And whatever We will [to be born] We cause to
rest in the [mother\'s] wombs for a term set [by Us],\" (Qur\'an 22:5).

Another verse reads:
\"Was he not once a [mere] drop of a sperm that had been split, and
thereafter became a germ-cell - whereupon He created and formed [it]
in accordance with what [it] was meant to be, and fashioned out of it
the two sexes, the male and the female?\" (Qur\'an 75:37- 8).

The Quranic paradigm of human creation, from the moment of birth to
the point of death, appears to be a Divine act, or certainly one that
was extra-terrestrial. Humankind is simply an agent, a trustee
of `God\', and the body a trust from `God\'.

Some of the mysteries of Creation itself and of our history here on
earth may become clearer after very recent archeological finds in the
Islamic world, specifically Morocco. From UFO Roundup:

\"Several Moroccan and Italian archaeologists have shed a new light on
the region around Nador\" in northeastern Morocco. \"The team
discovered three intact skeletons of children dating from the third
millennium B.C.\" According to OVNI Maroc, the skeletons were
unusually large, about 190 centimeters (6 feet, 3 inches) in
length. \"In a communiqué to the Moroccan Institute of Science, the
team reported that the skeletons were found in a substrata in a
grotto called Iffri Namar. The remains appear to be from an unknown
culture dating from about 3,400 B.C. Eight samples of desiccated bone
were taken from the remains and sent to Rime for DNA analysis.\" (See
the newspaper El Ansa for April 13, 2001. Merci beaucoup au OVNI
Maroc et Alfredo Lissoni de Centro Ufologico Nazionale d\'Italia pour
cette nouvelles--Editor\'s Comment: Maybe Morocco was the original
homeland of the Biblical giant, Goliath of Gath.)

In a discussion relating to the origins of the name Cameron, Peter
Moon suggests that the name \"Ahmroun\" was the actual derivation of
that name. He also states his belief that Mohammed, through the
Koran, explains that this family was the lineage that propagated
Moses, as well as Mary, the mother of Jesus, and his conclusion is
that the secret of the Cameron clan is that they are of the secret
lineage of Christ (the Desposyni).

The Qur\'an is not, however, a science textbook, according to Syed
Ahmad Khan writing on Qur\'an and Science (Akhari Madamia). His vision
of the Qur\'an and of religion and Islam itself is stated as follows:

\"The Qur\'an does not prove that the earth is stationary, nor does it
prove that the earth is in motion. Similarly it can not be proved
from the Qur\'an that the sun is in motion, nor can it be proved from
it that the sun is stationary. The Holy Qur\'an was not concerned with
these problems of astronomy; because the progress in human knowledge
was to decide such matters itself. The Qur\'an had a much higher and a
far nobler purpose in view. It would have been tantamount to
confusing the simple Bedouin by speaking to them about such matters
and to throwing into perplexity even the learned, whose knowledge and
experience had not yet made the necessary progress by discussing such
problems. The real purpose of a religion is to improve morality; by
raising such questions that purpose would have been jeopardized. In
spite of all this I am fully convinced that the Work of God and the
Word of God can never be antagonistic to each other; we may, through
the fault of our knowledge, sometimes make mistakes in understanding
the meaning of the Word.\"

In studying the early Egyptian magic, however, one can see the
similarities with the Kabbalah and all the other ancient forms of
Mystery School, especially the two distinct groups of those who
were \"worthy\" and \"had the ears to hear\". The student is indeed given
a thoroughly scientific satisfaction. In a tome on early Egyptian
Magic is written:

\"One is troubled with no vague theories, but receives precise
practical details; we observe that every square inch of the Upper and
Under Worlds is mapped out. The strength that such a system
inherently contains was proved by the long duration of the archaic
Egyptian civilization.

\"The first principles of Egyptian Magic were based on an elaborate
system of correspondences depending on the formula that, the
evolution of what is material follows the type and symbol of the
emanation of the spiritual; that spirit and matter are opposite faces
of the self-same mystery. The Egyptian Adepts regarded the
conceptions of the mind, the aspirations of the soul, the words of
the mouth and the functions of the body, as possessing analogies from
which a complete system of rules of life and death could be
constructed (the Tree of Life). Moreover they looked upon each body,
or manifested being, as the material basis of a long vista of
immaterial entities functioning as Spirit, Soul and Mind in the
Formative, Creative and Archetypal Worlds.

\"There is every reason to suppose that only those who had received
some grade of initiation were mummified; for it is certain that, in
the eyes of the Egyptians, mummification effectually prevented
reincarnation. Reincarnation was necessary to imperfect souls, to
those who had failed to pass the tests of initiation; but for those
who had the Will and the capacity to enter the Secret Adytum, there
was seldom necessity for that liberation of the soul which is said to
be effected by the destruction of the body.

\"The body of the Initiate was therefore preserved after death as a
species of talisman or material basis for the manifestation of the
Soul upon earth.\"
