THE ‘MYSTICAL’ PATH OF THE SATANISTS

Mujlisul Ulama

Tasawwuf  or  Sufi’ism  is  an  integral  constituent  of  Islam. Tasawwuf  which  has  been  erroneously  described  as ‘mysticism’,  is  the  product  of  the  Qur’aan  and  Sunnah. Tasawwuf  is  completely  subservient  to  the  Shariah.  Any  brand of  sufi’ism/tasawwuf  which  is  in  conflict  with  the  Shariah  is  Satanism. 

Elaborating  this  subject,  Hadhrat  Sayyid  Abdul  Qaadir  Jilaani  (rahmatullah  alayh)  classified  these  Satanists  into several classes.

1)  Hulooliyyah   or  the  Incarnationists:  They  believe  that it  is lawful  to  stare  at  a  woman  or  a  man  whether  they  happen  to  be wives  or  husbands,  daughters  or  sisters,  etc. They  intermingle and dance  together.

2)  Haaliyyah:  They  claim  to  be  in  ecstasy.  They  are  entranced  by  singing,  jumping,  shouting  and  clapping  hands. They  believe  that  their  sheikhs  are  above  the  laws  of  the Shariah

3)  Auliya-iyyah:  They  claim  to  have  achieved  divine proximity  of  the  loftiest  stage,  hence  all  the  injunctions  of  the Shariah  are  not  applicable  to  them.  They  also  claim  that  a  wali has  a  higher  status  than  a  Nabi.  They  believe  that  while knowledge  came  to    Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam) via  Jibraeel  (alayhis  salaam),  it  comes  to  the  wali  directly  from Allah Ta’ala.

4)  Shamuraaniyyah:  These  heretics  believe  that  the  world  is eternal.  It  never  had  a  beginning  nor  will  it  ever  end.  They  consider  themselves  above  the  ahkaam  of  the  Shariah  which  they  believe  do  not  apply  to  them.  There  is  nothing  such  as  haraam  and  halaal  in  their  belief  concept.  Musical  instruments  are  used  in  their  so-called  religious  rituals.  They  do  not differentiate  between  man  and  woman  regarding  them  to  be  the  same.

5)  Hubbiyah:  They  believe  that  when  a  person  attains  the stage  of  ‘love’,  they  are  freed  from  the  obligations  of  the Shariah.  They  also  believe  in  nudism.  They  expose  their private  parts.

6)  Huriyyah:  They  seek  to  gain  ecstatic  experiences  by  means of  shouting,  singing  and  clapping  hands.  They  claim  to  having  sexual  relations  with  the  houris  of  Jannat.

7)  Mutakaasiliyyah:  Laziness  is  a  cardinal  article  of  their  faith.  They  beg  from  door  to  door  for  their  sustenance.  While  they  rot  in  their  laziness  they  claim  that  this  is  renunciation  of  the world.

8)  Mutajaahiliyyah:  They  deliberately  feign  ignorance,  dress immodestly  and  emulate  non-believers  (They  resemble  the  modernists  of  our  age.  –  The  Majlis)

9)  Waafiqiyyah:  They  claim  that  no  one  can  understand  and know  Allah  Ta’ala,  hence  they  deliberately  abandon  the  Shariah  on  the  basis  of  this corrupt  assumption.

10)  Ilhaamiyyah:  They  believe  in  ilhaam  (inspiration). Thus  they  abandon  knowledge  and  forbid  its  acquisition.  They believe  that  the  Qur’aan  is  a  barrier  for  them.  Poetry  and  music are  their  Qur’aan.  (On  the  occasion  when  Allah  Ta’ala expelled  Iblees  from  the  heavens,  he  supplicated  for  a ‘qur’aan’.  Granting  his  supplication,  Allah  Ta’ala  informed  him that  his ‘qur’aan  will  be  poetry   and singing.  This  group  of  Satanists  follow  him  in  this  aspect.  They  receive  their  ‘ilhaam’ (inspiration) from shaitaan. – The Majlis)

Besides  these  sects  of  Satanists,  there  were  many  others  as  well  such  as  the  Qalandaris  (wandering  beggars),  Haydaris (those  who  pretend  to  be  heroes)  and  Adhamis  (those  who  fraudulently  pretend  to  follow  Hadhrat  Ibraahim  Adham’s  path  of  renunciation. He  had  abandoned  the  throne of  Balkh).

A  very  prominent  sect  of  Satanists  in  our  era  is  the  Qabar  Pujaari  sect.  They  worship  the  graves  of  dead  saints  and  claim  to  ascend  to  lofty  spiritual  stages  via  the  avenue  of  ecstasy  while  in  reality  their  ‘ecstasy’  is   nothing  but  pure  hallucination,  the  product  of  smoking  dagga  (hashish)  and  opium.  Their  headquarters  are  always  located  at  the  graves  of  Auliya  which  they  have  converted  into  haunts  of  shirk  and kufr.

Hadhrat  Abdul  Qaadir  Jilaani  (rahmatullah  alayh)  states  in his  kitaab,  Sirrul  Asraar  that  there  are  two  signs  of  the  people of  Truth  who  follow  the  Sunnah  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu alayhi  wasallam).  One  sign  is  zaahir  (external).  They  follow  the  ahkaam  of  the  Shariah  meticulously.  They  are  firmly fettered  to  the  Shariah.  The  other  sign  is  baatin  (internal  spiritual).  They  follow  the  Akhlaaq-e-Hasanah  (Beautiful Moral  Character)  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam). Thus,  they  are  firmly  anchored  to  the  Shariah  and  the  Sunnah. And,  this  is  the  Naaji  group  –  the  only   group  of  the  73  sects, which  will  attain  salvation in  the  Aakhirah.

Warning  Muslims  of  the  Satanist  trap  of  deception,  Hadhrat  Sayyid  Abdul  Qaadir  Jilaani  (rahmatullah  alayh)  says  in  his  kitaab:  “Beware, O  Traveller  in  search  of  the  Truth!  Beware of the  blind  leading  the  blind. Your  sight  should  become  so  fine  to enable  you  to  distinguish  between  the  slightest  particle  of  good  and  evil.”

Nazimites (Hisham Kabbani & Co) and Freemasonry-Occultism

Here we enter a spiritual jungle: the esoteric and occult modern world. It is very much like a market where customers shop for their favourite brand of spirituality while gurus compete with one another in order to recruit and sometimes make alliances so as to survive or grow. All loose in this bazaar because it is a universe of delusions and deceptions.

The products displayed on the stalls range from Western political esoteric organisations and spiritual occult orders, to all kinds of brands with the name “Sufi”: some have abandoned any effort to conform to Islamic orthodoxy or have officially separated themselves from Islam, inventing a so-called non-Islamic Sufism; others still try keep up appearances to different degrees, but keep links with their colleagues.

Let us now try and explain what happened and where ad-Daghestani, Nazim Qubrusi and Hisham Kabbani stand.

THE BÂTINI (OR ESOTERIC) SYSTEM

Allâh said what means: “As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, you have no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allâh: He will in the end tell them the truth of what they were doing” (Surah al An’aam 6:159).

Historical Background:

Batini’ in the context of the above verse, is a word used to describe sects or movements whose official doctrine is different from what they really teach within their ranks. Ismailis of the Musta’li branch are typical of this kind of system. They work on a progressive initiation pattern: common followers receive a teaching which is not so different from the mainstream they left that it would be repugnant. As for those who want to progress in knowledge or hierarchy, the real content will progressively be disclosed to them. In spite of the sophistication of the organisation, secrets always leak out, and the modern era has seen the disclosure and publication of many books which had been meant for an elite only.

When Islam expanded over the world, it did not find a planet empty of beliefs and religious practices. When it replaced them, it left an important number of highly intelligent people frustrated to see a religion their desires could not accept, which had replaced what they had worked for and lived by. Islam could not be destroyed from the outside, so they tried and corrupt it from the inside. They had already done so with previous communities, they only had to apply the same methods over again. Those beliefs could roughly be described as Indo-European and Semitic [1] paganism, revamped by Hellenistic[2] philosophers.

Many cases of tampering in sacred books and in forging hadîths find their origin in philosophical ideas, but some ideas were too shocking for people to accept. They had to go underground in order to survive in Europe. This is the origin of esoteric Rosicrucian, Masonic or Templar orders. These ideas penetrated the Islamic environment through the translation of Greek and Hellenistic literature. Ismaili Shiites really elaborated their doctrine when they seized power in Egypt and came under the influence of one of the greatest centre of philosophy for centuries: Alexandria. Internal fights and the destruction of their dynasty forced Ismailis to scatter, mainly towards the north and eastwards, where they founded Shiite pseudo-Sufi orders and hid until the British invasion.

The ability of those people to infiltrate a religious community and pretend to agree with its ideals is a disturbing reality. It is put to their followers in an idealistic manner which aims at silencing their conscience. The former Supreme Legate of the A.M.O.R.C. Rosicrucian order, Raymond Bernard wrote: “Far from taking the faithful person away from his religion, Rosicrucian teaching often has the subsidiary consequence of making him closer to it[3]. After entering a community unobtrusively, new converts are attracted by letting them believe they will find the underlying meaning of their religion and plunge in its real mystical depth.

When Imâm al-Qushayri [4] (rahimahullâh) wrote his Risâlah, the infiltration of Hellenistic philsosophies had started in the Sunni environment and his book was meant to denounce those who had started to use the Sufism as a disguise to justify their erring ways. He set the record straight and he was followed shortly by ‘Abd al Qâdir a lJîlâni [5], ‘Ahmad ar Rifâ’i[6] and then the rest of the great masters (rahimahumullah) who founded the True Islamic Sufi orders. These organisations played a major role in protecting the Path from corruption for a long time but the battle between truth and evil carried on. Esoteric heresies are viruses which adapt all the time, looking for new carriers to spread the disease, to they did manage to infect some branches of the venerable orders. The decline of the Ottomans, the ever increasing interference of Western powers and eventually the colonisation of Islamic lands, greatly favoured all types of pseudo-Sufism.

Modern times have been very interesting for all direct inheritors of this tradition, as for those who have been influenced by them. Contact was re-established with their European brothers and co-operation could start again on a large scale. This is the context which makes pseudo Sufi organisations so eager to go westward. They have many affinities with esoteric orders here, which themselves have spread in our Islamic world. Modern western minds are in general a very fertile ground for those orders. It is a revealing topic which deserves much longer explanations, but we need to concentrate now on one of them: the Nazimites.

The Nazimite sect:

Ismaili and Imami clergies are very experienced professionals whose methods of dissimulation have been refined by centuries of practice. When one talks with common followers of these sects, one realises that they have little idea of the horrific beliefs held in stock.

Nazimites are far from having such a long experience. Their control over the system is fairly weak, so there are many leaks from people who got access to their real doctrine before their conditioning was completed, or were shocked to realise that few of their many predictions ever came true. Hisham Kabbani and his collaborators would certainly like to have a stronger hand over everything and they seem to be managing that more and more. I have noticed since 1995 a more organised approach to propaganda, less blunders and embarrassing disclosures by ill-disciplined followers.

Back in 1995 and the following years, we strongly suspected that things were hidden from us because of the strange reactions and contradictions encountered among Nazimites. Each time we thought we had discovered evidence of heresies in their books we were told that such publication was not authorised any more, that another was about to be revised, that the author was somebody who had left Nazim since, etc. They had a very evasive strategy which delayed our gathering of information. They also constantly dodged our attempts to have an encounter in a neutral place.

Our suspicions were confirmed eventually by an important murid of the inner circles who decided to leave them and explicitly described a system in which very different things are said to various audiences. The stories told to non- Muslims are very different indeed from those given to Muslims, and inside the organisation, the teaching imparted to established members is shockingly at odds with what is granted to common followers. Even old murids are at different levels.

The first surprising piece of information we obtained was that the book called ‘Haqiqat ul-Haqqani’ which is filled with nonsense and outrageous statements about the alleged spiritual states of Nazim, a publication which is officially disapproved of (they even claimed to be suing people about it) was actually totally accepted by them. They believe in all its contents but were terribly embarrassed that an opponent who got hold of it spread it around in order to show outsiders the reality of the movement. What we found in the rest of their literature confirmed that.

Nazim himself confirms their system of different levels of beliefs. An interviewer called ‘Z’ in the text, asked him: “… You said once that even Shaitan will go back to Allah after a big, big period of cleaning. In the end everybody is with Allah”, then they report that al-Qubrusi answered: “Everything. Now we are speaking on the first level of beliefs and you are speaking to me about the top point of sufi-orders.”[7]

His successor, Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, known among them as Shaykh Hisham, confirms this too when he writes[8]: “God has cursed tyrants and unbelievers. Now we are going to say something big–be careful[9] Mawlana asked: In what circumstances did this curse that God has pronounced on tyrants and unbelievers come! It came through the holy book, but on what tongue? Who brought the Holy Qur’an? Who recited it? From whom did the sahaba listen to it? From God? No, but from the Prophet (s). Therefore it is according to that level, the level of the Prophet (s), that God is cursing tyrants and unbelievers. Above that level, at the level of His Majesty and His presence, do you think, Mawlana asks, that there is such a curse? It is impossible, because he has honoured humankind–how could He be cursing them? … What came on the tongue of a human being, therefore, came for human beings…”

When they think that a murid has been sufficiently entangled in their emotional ties, that he has reached the level where the sheikh is not seen any more through Islam, but Islam through the sheikh – remember here that most of them had very little previous knowledge, if any in the case of converts – they start disclosing beliefs which this person would have been unable to accept before. At that moment, it makes him feel special, as if he was progressing spiritually. The final stage of conditioning is when the murid judges his or her progress by the distance with official belief and law. The further they are, the higher they think to have ascended. This delusion is reinforced among some by hallucinations, self-hypnosis and unusual phenomena which they are unable to interpret correctly, such as contacts with jinns who let them believe what is useful for them. The person who has reached that stage has fallen in complete zandaqah, outside the fold of Islam. Reports we have from former Nazimites show that there is quite a number of them.

Followers are encouraged to take part in the cover up.

Hisham Kabbani wrote[10]: “He must not mention from the speeches of his shaikh what listeners cannot understand. This might harm the shaikh in a way of which the disciple is unaware. Ali (alayhi ssalaâm) said in a tradition narrated in Bukhari, “Speak to people at a level they can understand, because you do not want them to deny God and His Prophet (sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam)”.” The last quote is correct, but it was not meant to hide secrets which contradict Islam.

One of the official Nazimite web sites, http://www.naqshbandi.org/, which proudly proclaims it was founded by Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, has a link with one of the Gurdjieff sites: http://www.angelfire.com/ca3/gurdjieffsufi/. On the page “Naming names[11]they wrote: “Gurdjieff spoke of an inner circle of humanity, a group of conscious men who more or less ran things at the local level in each age. The idea was not new, but the terms he used to describe it were. He explained to Ouspensky at one point that humanity was divided into three concentric circles: the inner circle of conscious men, the middle circle of men mediating between the two other circles and the outer circle containing most of humanity.” This is what is the esoteric (bâtini) system, put in a way that will be acceptable to many.

Mr Hisham Kabbani also gave away their liking of esotericism, magic and the occult when he wrote[12] about the angels Hârût and Mârût: “They taught human beings all the esoteric arts and branches of the “occult” knowledge: astrology, alchemy, numerology, the healing arts, and magic. They never give away their knowledge, however, without a warning to the would-be-practitioner: if his or her heart is pure, he or she is safe. If not, they are in danger of losing themselves among the lower beings of the eart, the jinn… Magic may be equally constructive and destructive when it comes to the mind…” Actually the two angels were sent to teach deported Hebrews the difference between miracles and magic, to prevent them from being led astray. There is no good magic or witchcraft: it is a great sin in any case and whoever gets initiated by devils into the worst kind is taken out of Islam by them.

Fake Sufi orders base their heresies on the claim that the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) gave a secret, esoteric (bâtin) teaching to our masters ‘Abû Bakr and ‘Ali (radiyallâhu ‘anhumâ) . They claim it to transcend the exoteric (zâhir) teaching found in the holy Sharî’ah – actually its alleged contents contradicts it. Of course, every sect claims to be the best or sole inheritor of this knowledge and they still have to agree on what it is exactly. Heretics use that tale in order to justify their disregard for the revealed Law which the Prophet (sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam) and all the saints (‘awliya) strictly applied to themselves.

Pythagoras, Neo-platonists, occultists and Sufi claimants

Pythagoras is the first famous Greek philosopher to have clearly organised his teaching into esoteric (internal/secret) and exoteric (external/public) branches. Much later on, the Neo-platonists made a synthesis of Plato, Pythagoras and other Greek philosophers’ teaching with Egyptian, Persian and Hindu traditions. This Neo-platonic ideology is still the most influential among pseudo-Sufis and the presence of its tenets is often what gives them away. The rest of the time, their common vocabulary and persistent links are enough to point to their real nature.

When they feel exposed Nazimis will throw labels such as “masons” at others but the rest of the time, they do not make much of an effort to hide their links with western esoteric groups, the latter being more than happy to add so-called “Sufis” to the list of their friends: it reinforces their delusion to be within what they call: “the Tradition”.

An example of this cosy relation is illustrated in a dialogue between James Moore and Jim Gomez[13] The dialogue is filled with famous names of the western esoteric/pseudo Sufi society. They said:
And so I really put this question to you out of respect for your scholarship, fastidiousness and so forth. Is it your position – and you have made these contacts and have inquired – that the enneagram probably has its antecedents, peculiarly, in the Sufi tradition? I ask again with some background. I knew very well Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Annemarie Schimmel, these people. And I have also heard refrain from Idris Shah, who I very much associate with the Naqshibandi Sufis. At the same time, at this conference we have had people who say they see the sources of Gurdjieff’s teaching in the Christian Fathers, in the work of Mouravieff, for example.”

James Moore: Now, is it your position or is it not that the enneagram is peculiarly owed to an Islamic-Sufi tradition?
Jim Gomez: Yes. But. I’ll give that a ‘but’ because the way I am understanding it at the moment is that it is Pythagorean in origin, and goes back to at least the Pythagoreans.

Before Pythagoras, who was a very interesting figure, we have no real history because Pythagoras was at the ‘cusp’ of our Western World and its history. Before that, we have only mythology … (Note – as Guenon points out, even when we do have more ancient records or annals, such as ancient astrological readings in China, for example, which should be accepted as ‘scientific’, even then scientists and historians still tend to refer to these periods as ‘legendary’ – for a more lucid account of this idea, see R. Guenon, The Crisis of the Modern World, ch. 1) …

the interesting idea that Laleh Bakhtiar has talked to me about, is how the Islamic world ‘incorporated’ ideas from, say, the Platonic tradition.

This image is a picture of another Sufi Shaykh – Shaykh Nazim ( Maulana Sheik Nazim Al Haqqani Naqshibandiya). He is the 40th Master of the Kwajagan (Masters of Wisdom) Golden Chain. And this is a picture of him when he was 40. Now he is very old, he is 91 or 90 I believe.”

Then these gentlemen put a photograph of Nazim, finely-worked as usual, all centred around the eyes, the whole face doing its best to look both benevolent and profound. A young man asked me recently how could such a kind and gentle looking old man be so evil; I would say that in general, forgeries look better than the real thing. Some of the people mentioned in this dialogue, such as Seyyed Hossein Nasr[14], Gurdjieff and René Guenon, have nurtured through their books a new generation of enthusiasts who were bound to fall for pseudo Sufis such as al-Qubrusi.

The site where the dialogue above is to be found: http://users.moose.co.uk/ userfiles/gomez/first.html has a page of links which is very revealing in itself. Two of these links will take you straight to official Nazimite sites: http://naqshbandi.org/ and http://naqshbandi.net/haqqani/haqqani_english.html. The links page of the latter did not work when I tried but the former: the self-proclaimed “Naqshbandi Sufi Homepage” founded by Mr Hisham Kabbani, does have links sending straight to the so-called “Sufi Enneagram Website”, the Beliefnet[15], the “Gurdjieff and Sufi Paths” site and the “Gurdjieff International Review”.

The Case of Gurdjieff

In ‘The Naqshbandi Sufi Way[16], Hisham Kabbani related the visit of George Gurdjieff[17] to ad-Daghestani, writing: “At the time of the dawn prayer, Shaykh Abd Allah called Gurdjieff to come and pray with him…” then he quoted the Russian teacher describing a vision he claimed to have had: “…I found myself entering into your heart and becoming part of you...”. Eventually he wrote that ad-Daghestani concluded the meeting with these words: “This meeting of ours has been blessed. Keep it as a secret in your heart and do not speak of it in this life. Abd an-Nur, for that is your name with us, you are free to stay or go as your responsibilities allow. You are always welcome with us. You have attained safety in the Divine Presence. May God bless you and strengthen you in your work”.

Who is that Gurdjieff who was treated as a saintly Muslim by ad-Daghestani, making him pray with him and asking Allâh to help him in his work??

Gurdjieff is well known in some western esoteric circles. In a book called “The dawn of Magic[18] they report these words of his: “My way is to develop the hidden potentialities of man, a way that is against nature and against God”. Where are the reliable Muslim sources proving that this man ever became a Muslim?? . The Gurdjieff International Review quotes him saying: “We can only strive to be able to be Christians.[19].

Once again we see the collusion between western esoteric orders and pseudo Sufi orders. On the World Wide Web Nazimites and their western counterparts are officially connected. http://www.naqshbandi.org/, of Hisham Kabbani, is linked to two sites of Gurdjieff’s disciples: http://www.gurdjieff.org/ and http://www.angelfire.com/ ca3/gurdjieffsufi/ and another esoteric site: the Portland Practice Circle[20] has a link to naqshbandi.org.

Links with Perennialists in particular:

Perennialism started as a major western philosophical movement with René Guénon in the 1920s and developed with other philosophers after him, such as Frithjof Schuon, Titus Burckhardt, Martin Lings and Seyyid Hossein Nasr. Their belief is that all religions have the same core of ideas, that official dogmas and rituals are essential for common people but that an elite can go beyond appearances and find the real meaning of existence. They assert the validity of all religions which they see as different ways of reaching the essence.

You will find in the speeches or writings of ‘Abdullâh ad-Daghestani, Nazim al-Qubrusi and Hisham Kabbani the very same ideas and we quoted them abundantly in this work. The whole ideology is a distortion of facts. Most traditional religions can be traced back to the teaching of prophets and our master Muhammad (sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam) said what means: “Prophets are brothers … and their religion is one”. This asserts that revelation always revealed the same truth and that differences among present day religions are due to progressive alterations of the original message, it does not say that these systems still contain a door to salvation and real knowledge. The last Messenger (sallallâhu ^alayhi wasallam) was sent to a world which had lost Islam altogether and blocked all paths to leading to it.

There is not difference of opinion among Muslims, whether they are scholars or common people, inside or outside Sufi orders, on the belief that since the Best of All Creatures (sallallâhu alayhi wasallam) brought us back Islam, there is no salvation out of it that its very core contradicts the essence of other religions.

Sufism is by its very nature the champion of Islamic orthodoxy and we shall not trust modern time philosophers who officially embraced Islam, only to carry on with their previous frame of mind. Perennialist writers like René Guénon, Frithjof Schuon and Martin Lings only made a new attempt at revitalising inside the Muslim community the tenets of Hellenistic philosophy, Neo-platonism in particular, which Imâm al-Ghazâli (rahimahullah) dashed in his time. They were joined in their effort by the surviving inheritors of this accursed tradition, such as Seyyid Hossein Nasr, ad-Daghestani, Nazim and Hisham Kabbani. Pseudo Sufis see in the spread of western civilisation a real opportunity to recover from the crushing defeat they suffered centuries ago: their old books and forgeries are published on a grand scale in many languages and spread among a new generation of Muslims who are easily deceived by their rhetoric.

It is no accident if Perennialism, other brands of Hellenistic philosophies and pseudo Sufism spread among westerners as well as Muslims brought up in the West or educated in the largely westernised universities of the Islamic world. They plot but Allâh plans and He is the best of planners.

The links of Nazimites with Perennalists is sometimes advertised. One of their Spanish speaking sites: http://www.haqqani.arrakis.es/ advertised in its book section one of René Guénon’s works in their language: “El reino de la cantidad y los signos de los tiempos”.

Inayat Khan:

In his interview with ‘phenomeNEWS’ Hisham Kabbani said: “Enlightened masters in all countries are preparing their followers with limited power because there is not permission to reveal and use miraculous power. Sufism from its beginning was supported by the miraculous power of its saints but that miraculous power is not allowed to be used now. Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan is not using it, but is using the ordinary way to teach. They are not going into a higher level of consciousness because if they go to a higher level… ohhh, that would bring confusion to this world, and there is no permission to use such power until the proper time.[21]

Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan was the son of Inayat Khan [22] who was one of the many gurus from the Indian subcontinent who came to the West to find keen listeners, thirsty for an oriental flavoured philosophy. His doctrine is a typical case of pseudo Sufism, the kind which is much valued in Western esoteric and occult circles. He is one of the first to have understood that modern times made it possible to preach openly what had before been spread secretly, giving up any pretence to respect orthodoxy.

These are some of his statements:
There is One God, the Eternal, the Only Being; none exists save He. The god of the Sufi is the God of every creed, and the God of all… He sees his God in the sun, in the fire, in the idol which diverse sects worship…
“There is One Holy Book, the sacred manuscript of nature, the only scripture which can enlighten the reader…The Sufi has all ages respected all such books, and has traced in the Vedanta, Zendavesta, Kabala, Bible, Qur’an, and all other sacred scriptures, the same truth which he reads in the incorruptible manuscript of nature, the only Holy Book…
“…the Sufi concerns himself little with the name of the religion or the place of worship.All places are sacred enough for his worship, and all religious convey to him the religion of his soul. ‘I saw Thee in the sacred Ka’ba and in the temple of the idol also Thee I saw.’…
“There is One Brotherhood, the human brotherhood which unites the children of earth indiscriminately in the Fatherhood of God…[23]

Dr H.J. Witteveen[24] reported that Inayat Khan said: “In this stage the Sufi hears through the ears of God, sees through the eyes of God, works with the hands of God; then his thought is the thought of God and his feeling is the feeling of God. For him there is no longer that difference which a worshipper makes between himself and God

We shall see later in this work how this doctrine, which is so similar to Nazim and Hisham Kabbani’s beliefs, is incompatible with Islam and at odds with the teaching of the great masters of Sufism. The only serious difference between the Nazimite leadership and Inayat Khan is that the former are still concerned with appearing orthodox to the Sunni public.
Inayat Khan founded his personal pseudo Sufi order called the “Sufi Order International”. His son Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan succeeded him (this is the person Hisham Kabbani refers to) and the organisation is now in the hands of the founder’s grandson: Pir Zia Inayat Khan.

The link between them is so strong that on his first visit to the United States, Nazim visited Pir Vilayat Khan at his New York spiritual centre. An event they publicise on Naqshbandi.org, with a photograph to prove it[25].

The Case of Stephen Turoff

There is a book read by some disciples of al-Qubrusi, called ‘Wings of the messenger’ (published in 1993), written by a dedicated follower, Zero Thyra Quensel[26], who has been quoted earlier. This work is about an open kâfir called Stephen Turoff, who claims to be possessed by the spirit of a dead man known as Dr. Abraham Joseph Kahn. The reason why she wrote the book is given in page 7 where it is explained that Nazim allowed people to go to that man. He does not simply give permission to go there, as she said: “Within days the news of the extraordinary healing of Sheik Nazim’s wife and many others had become the topic of the community … Sheik Nazim actually started telling us to go.”

What kind of man is that person whom Nazim entrusts his murids with?? Well, Ms. Quensel reports in page 5 that he told her: “You are the Creator! You are truly one with God!” The author carries on saying: “This is hard to swallow, even for believers, because it puts the whole responsibility on us. We are creating this.” This is actually the only thing that shocks her in his statement! I suppose she thinks she is a Muslim and looks down to us as people of very poor spiritual understanding, ‘hidden polytheists’.

The man has the same religion as Nazim’s, which is why al-Qubrusi is so eager to help him preach to his grateful patients while he is operating on them. This is confirmed by Thyra Quensel, in page 6, when she says: “He opens the body with various strange instruments, sometimes even with his bare fingers, operates within a minute and closes the wound without a trace of blood. While doing this he gives profound talks and Messages from the Most High”.

The Jordan Royal Family’s Role in the fall of True Caliphate and the Deception of Pseudo-Sufi’s Regarding Them

Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (اَلمَمْلَكَة اَلأُرْدُنِيَّة اَلهَاشِمِيَّة) is in existence since 1921, and in its present form, only since 1948. The first Amir of this Kingdom, Abdullah I,  was a Saudi appointed and British approved Emir of Jordan who declared himself as King of Jordan in 1947.  We have provided a brief history of this dynasty in the following.

Hussein bin Ali (حسین بن علی) (1931 –1854) 

Hussein bin Ali was the Sharif and Emir of Makkah, during 1908 – 17, when he proclaimed himself King of Hejaz. He initiated the Arab Revolt in 1916 against the  Ottoman Empire (who were recognized as the upholders of Shariah throughout the Islamic World), during World War I thus causing the downfall of the Islamic Caliphate. 

The rise of Turkish nationalism under the Ottoman Empire, that culminated in the 1908 Young Turk Revolution, resulted in a rift between Hussein and the Ottoman revolutionaries. On 27 June 1916 Hussein issued a proclamation in which he announced himself the true leader of the Islamic faith and King of Hejaz.  This was a revolt against the Central authority of Ottoman Sultan Mehmed V, whom Hussein accused a puppet of the Young Turk administration (which was headed by a Donmeh Jew named Mustafa Kemal Ataturk). Numerous reasons were cited by Hussein to justify his action; which include alleged mistreatment of Arabs in Syria, and the controversial argument put forward by the Young Turks in 1909 that all religions were to be regarded as equal. 

The irony of the situation is, currently King Abdullah II of Jordan is doing the same thing, what Young Turks did in 1909.  He is also creating an atmosphere in the world where all religions are treated as authentic and equal.  He has issued Amman Messages (declarations) in 2005 in which he calls all Muslim Sects as true Muslims. He also calls Christians, Jews and Buddhists as believers on par with Muslims.  He misinterpreted Qur’anic verses and Ahadith to justify his actions.   

During World War I, Hussein, on the advice of his son Abdullah I,  began secret negotiations with the British Government and demanded that British recognize  and help in the formation of an Arab nation that include Hejaz and other adjacent territories. British agreed in principle, and then commenced the Arab revolt against Ottoman empire in 1916.

At the end of World War I, Arabs found themselves freed from Ottoman Sultanate rule causing division in the Ummah, but were held under the mandate colonial rule of France and the United Kingdom. When these mandates ended, the sons of Hussein; Abdullah I was made Emir of Transjordan (later Jordon),  and Faisal was made Emir of Syria & Iraq (later Iraq) by the British kuffar.

In 1924, when the Ottoman Caliphate was abolished, Hussein was defeated by Abdul aziz al-Saud forces in 1924.    

 Abdullah I bin al-Hussein ( عبد الله الأول بن الحسين ) ( 1951-1882 )

Abdullah I, born in Makkah, was the son of Sherif Hussein bin Ali, Sharif and Emir of Makkah in Ottomon Caliphate.  From 1909 to 1914, Abdullah I sat in the Ottoman legislature, as deputy for Hejaz. 

Around 1915, Abdullah-I hatched a conspiracy against Ottoman empire in collusion with British Government. During World War I,  he led guerrilla raids on Ottoman garrisons, in close cooperation with British Spy T. E. Lawrence and French Captain M.O.A. Raho and played a key role, as the main architect and planner of the end of Khilafah system in the Middle East.  

He attacked Ottoman garrison of Ta’if on 10 June 1916 and captured it on September 22, 1916. He then joined the siege of Madinah commanding a force of 4,000 men based to the East and North-East of the town. In early 1917, Abdullah ambushed an Ottoman convoy in the desert, and captured £ 20,000 worth of gold coins.

In August 1917, Abdullah worked closely with the French Captain Muhammand Ould Ali Raho in sabotaging and destroying Hijaz Railway. 

The most agonizing aspect in the History of Middle East is the establishment of the Jewish State Israel in Palestine.  Abdullah I  played a key role along with British and Jews in its formation. He supported the Peel Commission in 1937, which proposed that Palestine be split for a Jewish state Israel. 

In 1946–48, Abdullah-I openly participated in the partition of Palestine. Before Arab Israeli conflict, the British had essentially withdrawn their troops. The situation pushed the leaders of the neighboring Arab states to intervene, but their preparation was not finalized, and they could not assemble sufficient forces to turn the tide of the war. The majority of Palestinian Arab hopes lay with the Arab Legion of Trans-Jordan’s King Abdullah I, but he had no intention of creating a Palestinian Arab-run state, since he wanted to annex as much of the territory of the British Mandate for Palestine as he could. He was playing a double-game, being just as much in contact with the Jewish authorities as with the Arab League. He held secret meetings with the Jewish Agency (future Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir was among the delegates to these meetings) that came to a mutually agreed partition plan independently of the United Nations in November 1947. A part of Palestine was occupied by Israel and the remaining part was occupied by Jordan.  Rest is history.

Abdullah I became the Emir of Jordon during 1921-46.  He then declared himself King of Jordon and remained in power till 1951.  On July 20, 1951, Abdullah I,  while visiting Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, which was under Jordanian rule, was shot dead by “a Palestinian from the Husseini clan”.  

Talal bin Abdullah ( طلال بن عبد الله‎) (1909-1972)

Talal bin Abdullah came to power after the assassination of his Father King Abdullah I,  on July 20, 1951.  However, he was forced to surrender power to his son Hussein bin Talal  on 11 August 1952 on alleged health reasons.

Hussein bin Talal (حسين بن طلال‎) ( 1935 – 1999)

Hussein bin Talal rose to power after the abdication (removal) of his father, King Talal, in 1952.  His rein lasted till his death on February 7, 1999. Readers may be aware that King Hussein was very  infamous in the Arab world for his secret friendship and covert agreements with  Israel.

In the 1980s, King Hussein declared his brother as Crown Prince. Later he nominated his son Prince Ali bin Al Hussein, born to Queen Alia (third wife of King Hussein), but reportedly changed his mind around 1992 and seriously considered appointing one of his nephews as heir.

However, on his death bed, in an Intensive Care Unit, in a US hospital, critically ill from acute cancer, it was reported on January 25, 1999 that he named Abdullah II as his heir.  The King died on February 7, 1999.

Randa Habib, a woman journalist who was very close to King Hussein of Jordan, wrote a book about the inside story of King Hussein.  She disclosed that King Hussein was a womanizer.  He was a secret friend of Israel who used to give information to Israel about its Arab neighbors.  She also disclosed that before the 1973 war, King Hussain secretly informed Israel that Egypt and Syria were planning to attack Israel which help Israel to win that war.  She described the King as a very shrewd politicians

Abdullah II bin Hussein ( عبد الله الثاني بن الحسين‎)

Born on January 30,  1962, Abdullah II ascended the throne on February 7, 1999 upon the death of his father King Hussein.

He attended St Edmund’s School, Hindhead, Surrey, before moving to Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Massachusetts. He joined the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 1980, was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant, and served as a troop commander in the 13th/18th Royal Hussars.  In 1982, King Abdullah II attended Pembroke College at Oxford University where he completed a one-year Special Training course in Middle Eastern Affairs. In 1987, he attended the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

KING ABDULLAH’s ZIONIST FREEMASONRY CONNECTION

It is alleged that King Abdullah II of Jordan is member of the Committee of 300 influential people in the world who govern the world via a three city state empire, in which the cities pay no taxes and obey their own laws.

(1) City of London Corporation – Financial power center, established in 1067

(2) District of Columbia – Military power center, established in 1871

(3) Vatican City – Religious power center, sovereign in 1929

The Committee uses a network of round-table groups, think tanks and secret Zionist societies which control the world’s largest financial institutions and governments. The most prominent of these groups include Chatham House, Bilderburg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Ditchley Foundation, Club of Rome, RAND Corporation, PNAC and  Freemasonry. 

The Committee of 300 controls the world economy via the City of London Corporation. The City of London Corporation is made up of 108 Livery Companies, the Worshipful Company of Fuellers and the Worshipful Company of Mercers are two of the most prominent.

 The Bank of International Settlements controls the worldwide banking system including the Federal Reserve System and the European Central Bank. The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank work to in-debt developing nations making them subservient to the developed nations of the world.

The Groups of 7, 20 and 30 act as financial regulators and middlemen serving Central Banks and Investment Banks. These regulators are unelected and empower the Financial Terrorists at the expense of the masses. The Investment Banks and financial services corporations gamble with their clients money with the reassurance that any losses will be paid by taxpayers.

The power behind the Committee of 300 is the Anglo-Jewish cousin-hood that dominate the financial and political systems of the world.

This cousin-hood includes the RothschildRockefeller, OppenheimerGoldsmidMocatta,MontefioreSassoonWarburg, Samuel, KadoorieFranklinWorms, Stern and Cohen families.

These families hold monopolies over the worldwide banking system, the oil and gas industry and the metals and mining industry. Through this domination of the financial markets they pull the strings of every government in the world. They also control the illegal drugs trade, human trafficking and illegal arms trafficking causing continuous pain and suffering worldwide.

The cousin-hood believes in a form of Babylonian Talmudic Judaism. The Babylonian Talmud and Shulchan Aruch contain the legal code which is the basis of today’s Judaism and Jewish law. In fact, Talmudic Judaism is primarily a legal system in a literal sense. It has little to do with religion and is more of an ancient political cult group with many followers who are not openly Jewish. This is why so many Jews openly claim to be Jewish and atheist at the same time.

The esoteric teachings for the higher Luciferian initiates are to be found in the Kabbalah. Inside the Kabbalah is contained the mysterious rites for evocations, the indications and keys to practices for conjuration of supernatural forces, the science of numbers and of astrology. The practical application of Kabbalist knowledge has been used through the ages by Talmudic Jews to gain influence both in the higher spheres of Gentile life and over the masses. 

King Abdullah II married to Queen Rania of Jordan.

Rania Al-Yassin was born in Kuwait to Palestinian parents from Tulkarm. She attended the New English School in Jabriya, Kuwait, then received a degree in Business Administration from the American University in Cairo. Upon her graduation from American University, she worked briefly in marketing for Citibank, followed by a job with Apple Inc. in Amman.  Known as a sharp dresser with expensive tastes for designer goods, she is a fixture in London society pages. She was ranked as the third most beautiful woman in the world by Harpers and Queen magazine in 2005.  

King Abdullah II net worth (personal wealth) is not disclosed in public domain, as is generally done in the cases of other rich monarchs around the Globe. (Like King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia’s  net worth is estimated to be over 18 billion Dollars.

However, judging from his recent projects, and his lavish life style, King Abdullah II of Jordan’s  net worth could be among one of  the highest in the world. 

King Abdullah II is a big fan of Cinema.  In 2006, he partnered with the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts to create the Red Sea Institute of Cinematic Arts, in the coastal City of Aqaba.

King Abdullah’s mother,  Antoinette Avril Gardiner (Toni Gardiner), (born 1941), is the daughter of British Army Officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Walter Percy Gardner.

Toni Gardiner met King Hussein when she was working as Secretarial Assistant on the sets of the famous film  “Lawrence of Arabia” during its shooting in Jordon. Hussein took personal interest in the shooting and provided Jordanian Army personnel to work in the film because he had high regard for British Agent T.E. Lawrence, who helped his grandfather King Abdullah I to grab power.   

 On 25 May 1961, King Hussein married Toni Gardiner as his second wife and gave her the title of HRH Princess Muna al-Hussein. However, after 10 years of marriage, she divorced King Hussein on December 21, 1971.

After  divorce, she kept the title of ‘Princess of Jordan’ and remained in Jordan and continues to work till today. She works for whom and what is the nature of her work is not known to people and is not available in public domain.

Queen Noor, step-mother of King Abdullah II of Jordan;  the mother of Prince Hamza bin Hussain, the crown prince of Jordan between 1999-2004, is dating Carlos Slim Helu, a Maxican, the richest man in the world, worth US $ 69 billion.  

 
Some people people say that Jordanian rulers belong to Hashemite ( هاشمي ) or Banu Hashim clan of Quraish and direct descendants of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) therefore deserve respect.  We do respect all who are Ahle Bait and consider it mandatory on all Muslims of the world. 

But the history is witness that, till the early reign of Hussein bin Ali, who was Sharif and Emir of Makka, this family remained stead fast in Islam.  But, beginning the reign of Abdullah I, they deviated and started supporting the interests of British and Israel in the Arab World to an extent that Abdullah I helped in the formation of Israel by partitioning Palestine. Abdullah I also helped British and Wahhabi rise to power in Arabian Peninsula.  Jordanian Royal are also infamous in the Arab world for their secret friendship and covert agreements with Israel. 

The King has 4 children, the other two are Princess Salma (b 26 Sept 2000) and Prince Hashem (b 30 Jan, 2005).

Currently King Abdullah II is working for a Grand Zionist plan, against the commandments of Allah and His Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) by his Amman Declarations; in which he considers Jews, Christians, Budhhists as Equal in religion with Islam. 

If a very popular Shaikh is doing something against the Sharia openly, then it is our duty to tell him (with due respect) and his followers about it and help him correct it.  If we keep quite, thinking that he is a big Shaikh, or a big King, then we will not be doing justice to him or his followers.

THE CONSPIRACY TO MAKE KING ABDULLAH II OF JORDAN KHALIFA-E-ISLAM

There is a well orchestrated conspiracy to declare King Abdullah II as Khalifa-e-Islam.  Nazim al-Haqqani has  already declared him the Khalifa-e-Islam. Some stories are being concocted to prove the legitimacy of this fake Khilafat (Caliphate) among Muslims. 

Click this link to read what Nazim Haqqani says about Abdullah II: saltanat-transcriptions.s3.amazonaws.com/english/2012-04-08_en_ArshuSham.pdf

Also read the statements provided in the below link in which Nazim al-Haqqani declares that he has already given allegiance to King Abdullah II of Jordon. Nazim al-Haqqani also said that he has kissed the feet and hands of King Abdullah II.  (Astaghfirullah).  Nazim Al-Haqqani says that immediately 10 countries have been given to the King, that include where recent Zionist conspired revolutions have taken place.  He is encouraging the King to enter Syria and capture it immediately. Click here: saltanat-transcriptions.s3.amazonaws.com/english/2012-04-27_en_ToKingAbdullah.pdf

Its interesting to see such pseudo-Sufis like Nazim Haqqani who used to rant day and night on how Wahhabis and Al Saud destroyed the True Ottoman Caliphate but turn a blind eye to Jordanian authority who are equally responsible as Saud themselves, instead they make such corrupted leaders their “Khalifa al-Islam”!! such are their double-games, Indeed, Jordan Dinars seems to work better for these Pseudo-sufis!. May Allah give them Hidayah, Aameen
