Khazrat Tebu. Monster and άλφα-2 (fantasy)
Real events, real characters. A story from life. The reality of which no one will ever believe. That’s why it’s a fantasy. All right, let’s make it fantasy… The book may seem uninteresting and non-dynamic at first. This was the case with my friends until they learned the real names of some of the characters. Then they reread the book again under a completely different impression. Can you guess — who is who — in this book? You’ll be amazed. And you won’t believe it. That’s why this book is in the fantasy genre, smiley. Enjoy your reading.
Respectfully, the author

Monster and άλφα-2. Book 5. Ate
Chapter 119. There was something
I didn’t finish that fourth book either, so I started writing this one. Allah knows better.
- The genre of this work is «everyday life»?
Exactly. As strange as it sounds. Every day a beast wants to be killed. Every day he kills someone. It’s either a thriller or a horror or a detective. It’s really just everyday life. That’s why this book has such a strange style. The fantasy of the beast is weak. It is capable of recording what it has become aware of. If the information, of course, can be published. There are many, too many files that will be made public very soon. Those files that will go with me to my grave are enough, too.
- Minuses of the beast
The beast has only one flaw in his tasks. He has too kind a heart. Because that’s how his Master was…
Chapter 120. A History of the World (Plain and Simple). Part II
- A two-week-old baby turns into a full-grown young man
In the cave the boy sucked his finger, from which Allah gave him milk and honey. The child grew very fast: a day in a month or a year. After half a month, the angel Jabrail helped him find a home and return to his parents. Azar, his father, did not know that the boy was still alive.
But Ibrahim recognized only Allah, and he did not recognize Nimrud as «god». And then the problems began for Ibrahim’s father, who stayed with the old belief and remained loyal to Nimrud…
- Thinking out loud
Man sleeps and claims to be a «god.» Man eats and drinks and claims to be a «god.» Man goes to the bathroom, goes to the bathroom, goes to the bathroom, and claims to be a «god.
In other words, he is immensely stupid or proud. But why do people go along with this nonsense? Because of a love of worldly things to come in abundance? Hardly because of dementia. Probably because of an unwillingness to understand the issue. Allah, preserve us from all this.
- «If Allah be on my side, He can protect me from you. But if you are on my side, you cannot protect me from Allah.»
Something similar happened this time as well. The clash between Ibrahim and Nimrud was inevitable. God was on the side of the former. The second had the world on his side.
And this phrase was said by one of the saints of the community of the Prophet Muhammad. When he was asked to support the ruler and take his side in an issue that displeased God.
- The problems of modern man?
Is the modern world nihilistic? Does it have trouble believing in the miracles of the Prophets and the omnipotence of God? But in Hollywood fairy tales about superheroes people believe with pleasure. So is it about the people themselves? Or is it about the ministers of religious cults, who are disgusted by their immense love of cheese, branded on their faces?
It must be about the people. They choose. After all, choice is the only thing a person has at all.
- Ibrahim found God pretty quickly
These are images of the spiritual path. As the beast understands them. Nevertheless, they are realities. That’s exactly what happened to Ibrahim.
He sought God and found the moon, bright and full. But there was no moon during the day. Then he found the sun, big and dazzling. But the sun, too, had gone over the horizon line.
Then Ibrahim found the Creator who created everything that surrounds us, whether visible or invisible.
And who are you looking for? The illusion in which your desires will be embodied? Or the Truth, so that after your inevitable death you will regret nothing?
- Ibrahim smashes all idols
He smashed all the idols of the tribe, and he hung the hoe around the neck of the chief idol, implying that it was the chief idol that smashed the others. Why would you pray, asking for help from someone who can’t even defend himself? The message is simple and clear. Who needs clear. But there were none of those in his tribe.
- Seventeen years of arguing with his idol-making father
It is said that Azar made idols and sent his son to the marketplace to sell them. The son went, doing his father’s will, and told everyone that the idols were useless. It was no secret among the people of Ibrahim that Azar’s son did not like idols.
- The people of Urfa (a city in Turkey) finally decided to burn Ibrahim to punish him for humiliating their idols
The wood was gathered for three months. It is said that the mules became barren from that day, for they carried firewood from all around. And the heat from the flames went all the way to Damascus in Sham. The devil helped them to make a catapult, which he had seen in Hell for throwing sinners into the fire. Everything was ready for execution.
- Allah did not allow the fire to harm Ibrahim
The angels asked Allah to spare Ibrahim from torment. But Allah chose to teach the infidels a lesson and humiliate them by showing the world the utter impotence of Nimrud before the faith of Ibrahim.
The fire did him no harm. Ibrahim was sitting in a chair from Paradise, and Allah had placed a tree and a spring of water nearby. When the angel Jabrail, sent by God, asked about his need, Ibrahim replied that he needed nothing from Jabrail. And Allah is more aware than Ibrahim of the situation.
This is the path chosen by Ibrahim.
But our Prophet did dua prayer and asked Allah. And we will do so as well.
- Ibrahim and his nephew Lut leave his homeland
Nimrud banished Ibrahim, effectively admitting defeat.
Is this an exile or a departure? People don’t want the Truth. You are a stranger to them, too. You are not welcome. But that’s not the point. You have accomplished your task. We must move on.
Our Prophet also left Mecca after 13 years of persecution and suffering. But not because it was unbearable and they wanted to kill him all the time. Although that’s exactly what happened. It was because the resource of Mecca was completely exhausted for 13 years. Medina was inhabited by people who needed God. So God sent the Prophet to them and left him with them after his death, burying his favorite in Radiant Medina…
- The uselessness of idols even as mediators between man and God
When the Arabs of Mecca realized this, that idols themselves were useless, they said they were taking them to get closer to God. But Allah in the Koran clearly said — man thallathi yashfag’u g’indahu illya bithnihi. That is, «who can intercede before God except with the permission of God Himself?»
The Tabari tafsir to the Ayat ul-Kursi, from which this phrase is taken, states that Allah has made it clear to the pagans that only those to whom He Himself has permitted have the right of shafag’at or intercession before Him: The Rusuli, the Auliyyai, and the Ahlu Tog’ati. That is, «My Messengers, My Awliya-saints, and all who obey Me.»
- Who does the beast consider an idol?
There are many visible idols on earth. They are not of much interest to the beast. The only ones that matter to him are the invisible ones with which the heart is filled. And which are called the desires or passions of the ego-nafs. When they are defeated, the external idols will be easily shattered.
Otherwise, why did Allah tolerate 20 years of idols inside the Kaaba? Why didn’t he order the Prophet on the first day of prophecy to clean the Kaaba of the pagan statues? Because that is the technology of Allah Himself. That is the instruction manual of the manufacturing plant.
When the Arabs cleaned their hearts in 20 years, the statues inside the Kaaba were smashed in one day. Draw conclusions.
- Ibrahim moves to live in Hebron
On his way to Hebron, he met a beautiful woman, Sarah, who believed in God. Allah told Ibrahim to marry her. Hebron is in Palestine, not far from Quds (Jerusalem).
He was in Misr (Egypt) on trading business, where he was given a maid, Hajar. Then he settled in Sham, in the valley of Wadi as-Sabugh. Ibrahim lived in prosperity, had a large number of cattle, and was rich.
- What is Sham and which countries it includes
To the left of Mecca, the ancient center of the entire Arab world, was Sham. And to the right was Yemen. These countries got their names from the meaning of «left» (Shimal) and «right» (Yamin).
It is believed that Sham includes the territory of four modern states: Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine. Some believe that Sham includes only Damascus and its environs.
- A visit to Nimrud for wheat
The drought had begun. Nimrud had plenty of grain, which he sold to his neighbors. Demanding, in addition, that they worship him and recognize him as «god». Ibrahim, of course, did not bow and did not recognize him as «god». After all, God is the animator and the deadener. Then this malg’un-damned man called his two slaves, killing one and letting the other go. What a «philosopher.» Ibrahim replied that Allah raises the sun from the East. Then, what prevents Nimrud from raising the sun from the West?
Returning with nothing, Ibrahim filled all his bags with earth. Which Allah turned into grain for him.
As Hafez, the Shah of Persian poetry, said: «God is with you, Hafez! Rely on God, Hafez!
«Forget the world by loving it. Be faithful.
- Nimrud’s death and the end of 400 years of despotism
Apparently, such people lived then that Allah gave the like of themselves from their midst. For there are external causes and rules of Allah. To come to the understanding through them that only Allah rules as He wills.
- Nimrud wants to fight God in the sky
A tower five thousand cubits high was built for this purpose. The king fed meat and bread to two eagles, apparently instead of a chariot for the battle in heaven. He flew into the atmosphere of the earth, where, clearly, Allah was not present. An angel’s voice asked him — what is he doing here? Nimrud began to shoot an arrow at God. And Allah returned his arrow bloodied. But why?
- What is istidraj and what is it for?
Istidraj is Allah luring a slave to a doomful end in such a way that the slave will not feel it. Allah, keep us safe.
There is no chance there. None at all. No one. At all.
Why it’s necessary, I don’t know exactly. But falling from the first floor doesn’t hurt as much and there’s a chance of surviving. And to fall from the hundredth floor is much more painful and there is no chance. Because revenge is served cold. And they’ll find a deeper place in Hell, insha Allah.
- Nimrud wants to fight God on earth
Allah sent a hurricane and destroyed the tower. And the king, who had lost all sense of direction, after this flight became gray with fear and sick. But he did not draw any conclusions and wanted to fight God with the sword he wielded well.
Allah, through Ibrahim, told him to tell Nimrud to gather all his might and strength. But Allah would send the weakest to war from His side.
Allah sent mosquitoes that drank all the blood of Nimrud’s army soldiers and ate all the meat, leaving the bones behind. One mosquito flew into his nose and got inside his head. Then the king was sick for 40 years. And all that time, as medicine, he was constantly beaten on the head with a stick. That’s how he died in the end.
- The Prophet Lut (ع) and the people of Sadum
This story is found in the Koran. It is also found in the Bible. It has been known to the world since ancient times. Let us remind you of it.
It happened to the people of Lut (g’alayhi s-salam, peace be upon them).
The men of this tribe went to men instead of women. It is said that for the first time men began to shave their beards to look like women, in this nation.
Lut persuaded them for a long time, right up to his old age. His wife was on the enemy side and shared their fate.
In the end, Lut promised them the torments of Hell. And the Sadumites began to mock him, demanding that Allah send the promised torment.
In the end, they asked for it themselves.
- Allah’s rules
Allah sent the angels Jabrail, Mikail, and Israfil. But commanded not to punish the Sadumites unless there was a 4-fold testimony of the need for punishment.
Lut did not know all this, and the angels did not tell him.
When they asked him about the inhabitants of the city, he replied that there is no more abominable tribe on all the earth than the inhabitants of the city of Sadum. There is no one worse in the entire universe. And Loot swore to it four times.
The timer went off, just as Allah had said.
Lut asked for the punishment of the Sadumites as quickly as possible. The angels replied that the punishment would be in the morning, and it was near.
There were 7 villages with 12,000 people in each. The angel Jabrail lifted all these villages and all Sadum along with its inhabitants into the sky and from there struck the ground. It rained stones from the sky with the names of those people written on them. And all that was left of Sadum and its inhabitants is now at the bottom of the Dead Sea. Which became dead for this reason.
- Prophet Ismail (ع), eldest son of Ibrahim and ancestor of the Arabs
Hajar, the maidservant, gave birth to Ibrahim’s firstborn son, who was named Ismail. His wife Sarah, some time later, also gave birth to a son and named him Ishaq (Isaac).
The light of Prophet Muhammad was passed from Ibrahim to Ismail, who became the ancestor of the Qurayshites, the noblest race on Earth. For all of their ancestors were Prophets and out of them came the Last Prophet, the best creation of Allah.
The Qurayshites were the main population of Mecca at the time of the Prophet Muhammad. They get their name from one of the descendants of Ibrahim and Ismail and the ancestors of the Prophet Muhammad: Ibrahim — Ismail — … — Mudor — … — Fihr (aka Quraysh) — Ghalib — Luway — Kag’b — Murrah — Kilyab — Qusay — G’abdu Manaf — Hashim — Abdul-Muttalib — Abdullah — Prophet Muhammad.
But at that time there was no city, no people, not even the building of the Kaaba. The first building of the Kaaba was raised to Heaven before the Great Tribulation. And the new building was only to be rebuilt by Ibrahim and Ismail.
Ibrahim, by Allah’s command, left Hajar and Ismail in the place where Mecca and the Kaaba would eventually appear. Allah brought out of the earth the Zam-Zam spring, which is still there today.
The local people of the tribe of Banu Khuzag’a appreciated the miracle of water in the desert and recognized Ismail as their leader. They asked permission to live nearby, offering some of their possessions and help. Thus Allah Himself arranged all the affairs of the mother and child.
When Ismail grew up, he married a girl from the tribe of Banu Khuzag’a. And from that time, the Khuzag’its began to call Ismail Abu’l-G’arab, the Father of the Arabs.
The tribe of Banu Khuzag’a remained loyal to Ismail until the appearance of the Prophet Muhammad many centuries later.
Ibrahim visited his wife and son from time to time, doing God’s will.
Ibrahim must sacrifice his eldest son Ismail to God. Tested by
Ibrahim had no children for a long time. So he got Ismail in his old age. The name Ismail means «Allah, hear my pleas.» In return, Ibrahim promised to sacrifice the most precious thing he had. And the most valuable was his son Ismail. Ibrahim, Hajar, and little Ismail obeyed God’s will. The devil never succeeded in causing them to displease their destiny.
Ibrahim ran a sharp knife down the boy’s throat seven times. But the knife did not cut. For Allah forbade cutting. After all, it is Allah who cuts. Not the knife.
Ismail had already received the light of the Prophet Muhammad from his father and carried it within him. Thus, he received a special status before God. That is why the knife could not cut, no matter how hard Ibrahim tried.
The same knife easily cut the stone in half, but refused to cut the boy’s throat.
Ibrahim fulfilled his vow.
Allah and His contentment were more important to Ibrahim than a long-awaited and beloved son in his old age.
That’s how you become great. In case anyone is wondering.
Allah replaced the boy’s sacrifice with a ram. Since then, Muslims on the 10th day of the 12th lunar month of Zul-Hijjah have been offering a sacrifice like Ibrahim. The pilgrims, on these days, throw stones in 3 places near Mecca 7 times to Shaytan, as Ibrahim did.
- Ibrahim and Ismail rebuild the Kaaba
Before the Flood, the Kaaba sparkled with the red of paradise. The time had come, according to Allah’s will, to rebuild it. Even if not of precious stones. Allah knows best what and how people should do.
Ibrahim received orders to rebuild the Kaaba so that pilgrims from all over the world could come to it, as all the Prophets before them came here, starting with Adam.
The first building of the Kaaba is called Bayt Mag’mur. It was originally in the Fourth Heaven where the angels took it before the Flood. Later it was moved to the Seventh Heaven, where Ibrahim sits with his back leaning against it.
Hajar had already left the mortal world when the construction began. Ismail lived there with his family.
The place where the Kaaba used to be was forgotten. Allah had sent a cloud and shaded the boundaries of the Holy House. The stone for construction was ordered to be taken from five sacred mountains: Mount Sinai, Mount Zeit, Mount Lubnan, Mount Judi, and Mount Hira. These 5 mountains were associated with the 5 Great Prophets of the 3rd rank of Prophecy, the Ulul-G’azm — the Possessors of Special Toughness. Mount Judi was to Nuh (Noah), Mount Lubnan to Ibrahim (Abraham), Mount Sinai to Musa (Moses), Mount Zeit to G’isa (Jesus), and Mount Hira to the Prophet Muhammad.
This was done so that the good deeds of the pilgrims would be even heavier on the Mizan-weights on the Day of Judgment.
Father and son laid the foundation, then the construction began: the son served his father with stone and mortar, Ibrahim put stones in their places in the wall.
After the Flood was over, Nuh hid the Black Stone of the Kaaba in a hiding place on Mount Abu Qubays, near Mecca. This stone was inserted into the Yemeni corner of the Kaaba.
The Black Stone is commonly called — Yadu Llahi fi d-dunya — the Hand of Allah’s might in the mortal world.
Ideally, the pilgrim should bow down before the Black Stone, touch it with his hand and kiss it.
There is another stone in the Kaaba, but a white one called Maqam of Ibrahim. This stone acted as a support for Ibrahim’s feet, hovering in the air while it was being built.
Allah commanded Ibrahim to utter a call to the pilgrims of the world to visit Allah’s Holy House on Earth. And Allah Himself delivered this call of Ibrahim to all corners of the world so that all people in the West and the East would know about it and go on the Hajj.
Since then, a wave of pilgrims has reached Mecca every year and returned to every corner of the world.
The name of Mecca itself has long been a proverbial name, meaning the main shrine and center of the world in all the languages of the world.
- Sarah’s children, son Iskhaq and his offspring
Sarah gave birth to Iskhaq (Isaac) when she was 85 years old. Iskhaq’s lineage received nearly a thousand prophets, though the light of the Prophet Muhammad went to Ismail and the Arabs.
Iskhaq became the ancestor of the Jews.
- G’ays and Yaqub, sons of Iskhaq
Iskhaq married Rabikat, and they lived in Sham. They had twins, G’ays and Yaqub. In his mother’s womb, Yaqub ceded the right of primogeniture to his brother, and for this his mother loved him more. The mother substituted her sons during the supplication of Yaqub, and all the blessing of the father, and all the Prophets, went to Yaqub’s offspring. G’ays received what was left of his brother: kings and numerous offspring in the world. Alexander the Great is said to have been of G’ays’ lineage.
- Isra is a journey by night. Yaqub leaves Kang’an in Sham for the city of Najran in Yemen for fear of retaliation
The journey by day is called safar. The journey by night is isra. The first person who went on a journey by night was Yaqub. That is why his clan was named after it — Banu Israil, or Israilites. His 12 sons became the heads of 12 Jewish clans, beginning the Jewish people.
- Yaqub’s life in Najran, Yemen
Yaqub married two of his own sisters. In those years the sharia allowed one to marry his own sisters at the same time. They were daughters of his mother’s sister.
One of them bore Yaqub ten sons. The second, Rachel, gave birth to Yusuf and Buniamin.
- Yaqub’s return to Sham
Yaqub returned to Kang’an. G’ays, in his joy, forgave his brother. He gave his brother a house. Their father died at the age of 160 and was buried next to Ibrahim. G’ays also died at the age of 120.
Further amazing history followed through the Prophet Yusuf. The account of which in the Koran Allah called the most beautiful story.
The chapter of the Koran is called Yusuf. It is in order 12, read it or at least listen to the ancient voice of the East. Full of mysteries and great accomplishments.
- The Prophet Yusuf (ع), the most beautiful man
Yusuf was born when Yaqub was not in Kang’an, and the angel Jabrail brought him the glad tidings of the birth of his son. It is said that Yusuf had 90 percent of all the beauty of the world.
Let me remind you that the versions of the same story in different books may be different. Therefore, we approach this question from the perspective of an outside observer and a search for superposition.
The father couldn’t get enough of his son and gave out a thousand to the poor for joy.
- Yakub’s dreams
In Yaqub’s dreams there was a tree. Every time his son was born, a branch appeared on the tree. Which he would later hand over to his son when he came of age.
But Yusuf did not have a branch. The emerald branch was brought to him by the angel Jabrail. In another dream, only this branch of Yusuf’s emerald branch turned into a tree. And the brothers’ branches withered away.
So Yaqub was very fond of Yusuf. Which made his ten older brothers jealous and caused their hatred and enmity toward him.
- Yusuf’s dream as described in the Qur’an
When the eleven stars, the sun and the moon worshipped the boy in his dream. These are his eleven brothers (the eleventh was his younger brother from the same mother as himself, Buniamin) and his father and mother.
Undoubtedly, greatness awaited the boy. The father forbade telling the dream to his brothers, understanding the point.
The prophets have their own relationship with God, of which the rest of us do not know. Nor do the others know what the Prophets know. And Yaqub was a prophet.
But the brothers found out about the dream again. Allah does things as He wills…
- The brothers decided to kill little Yusuf
The jealous brothers began to ask their father to let Yusuf go and play with them. But Yaqoob was afraid that the boy would be eaten by a wolf. The brothers later blamed everything on him, bringing Yusuf’s shirt with the blood of a ram. Although the wolf was not to blame.
So the Arabs had a saying about an innocent man being like the wolf that ate Yusuf.
- The elder brother’s decision
The brothers beat Yusuf and were about to kill him. But then Yahuz (Judah), the eldest of the brothers, took pity on him and ordered him to be thrown into a well.
- The well dug by Sam (Nuh’s son)
Sam, the son of Noah, dug it a long time ago. 400 cubits deep, it was full of salt water. Yusuf was standing on a rock that was sticking out of the water. Suddenly the salty water became sweet.
Allah saved his great-grandfather Ibrahim from the fire and saved Yusuf from the water.
The water quenched both thirst and hunger. Three days later, Yusuf was still alive. The brothers wanted to stone him and kill him, but Yahuz again prevented them from doing so.
The angel Jabrail was with the boy at the well, guarding him. He brought him a shirt from Paradise so that Yusuf could get dressed.
A caravan was passing by, and the boy was pulled out of the well as they drew water. But his brothers found him there again and sold him into slavery for a few coins.
- Yusuf in Misr (Egypt)
G’aziz, the vizier of the king of Misr, bought a handsome boy, paying for him by the weight of silver and adding silks and incense. He and his wife Zulaykha raised Yusuf in their home until he grew up.
In the house of G’aziz, the vizier of the king of Misr
Do not discuss Zulaykha for her apparent wickedness. It is said that G’aziz was powerless in terms of women. And Zulaykha, after marrying him, was never intimate with her husband. And then the handsomest of men appeared in their house.
She went crazy over such beauty and began to harass him. But Yusuf refused her and began to run away. She chased after him and tore his shirt. But his shirt was torn from behind, so G’aziz believed the young man and not his wife.
- City gossip: 31 — 9
The women of Misr began to condemn Zulaykha. Then she gathered the 40 wives of the king’s viziers and gave them fruit knives to clean them themselves. Then she brought Yusuf. All the women, when they saw him, cut their hands. Nine of them died of blood loss without feeling a thing.
- Digression. Why the Prophet Muhammad was more handsome than Yusuf, though Yusuf was the handsomest of men
The Prophet Muhammad’s father carried the Light of his unborn son within him and was very handsome. When the women of Mecca learned that he had married Amina — 200 girls died at once. the rest lay sick, unable to get out of bed.
The Prophet Muhammad is superior to all other Prophets in everything and even in their special qualities, as was the case with Yusuf’s beauty. Know this. Smile.
The righteous one in detention
On false accusation, Yusuf was imprisoned. And Zulaykha withered from the dot over him. She did not eat, drink, or sleep.
For many years Yusuf spent in confinement until Allah, having tested him with the bitterness of this world, raised him to the utmost.
Allah knows how to test. But He also knows how to reward better than anyone else, if one is able to stay with Him, by the grace of Allah…
- The righteous one who can unravel dreams
Yusuf received his talent for interpreting dreams from Allah. He who was imprisoned with him remembered it when no one was able to unravel Pharaoh’s dream.
Yusuf made it easy, his good name was restored, and he himself became Pharaoh’s chief vizier.
- Pharaoh’s dream
From the dream of the ruler of Misr, it appeared that years of abundant harvest would be followed by years of famine. Pharaoh entrusted Yusuf with all the procedures for harvesting and preserving the crops. Thanks to this, Egypt was able to survive the terrible famine, and Yusuf soon became king of Misr.
He forgave Zulaykha, whose husband had long since died and she herself had grown old. Allah gave her back her youth and beauty. Allah ordered Yusuf to marry Zulaykha, who became his wife both in this world and in Paradise. At the age of 90, she gave birth to twin boys; they were named Mansha and Afraim. Then they also had a sister.
- Yaqub and all his kin move from Sham to Misr (Egypt)
During these famine years, the older brothers came to ask for help. They naturally did not recognize Yusuf. Who made sure that the younger brother Buniamin got to him and stayed with him. And later his father, who felt all these years that Yusuf was alive, also came to him.
Before that, on the day of G’ashura (10th day of the 1st lunar month of Muharram), on Friday night, Yakub asked God for forgiveness of sins for everyone. And Allah forgave. Yusuf also forgave his brothers.
Yaqub lived in Misr for 24 years until his death. He was buried next to his ancestors in Sham.
- The first Prophet of Banu Israil
Yusuf was actually the first Jewish Prophet. His father Yaqub was nicknamed Israil because of his first night journey.
Yusuf laid the foundation for engineering. He calculated the annual flow of the Nile. He had the al-Fayum canal dug, installing a mill there in only 70 days, although mills had previously taken a thousand days to build. A city was also erected by Allah’s order.
Yusuf reached the climax of life in the mortal world and wished to die. He made Yahuz the head of the Jews, and he died shortly thereafter.
Prior to this, Yusuf had predicted the appearance of Pharaoh, who would declare himself «god». That he would come from the Copts, oppress the Israelites, and kill their boys. And he would be followed by the Prophet Musa, son of Imran.
The indicator of these events, according to Yusuf’s prophecy, was to be his rooster, which would live 500 years. As long as the rooster roosts, the Israelites will be strong in their faith. When he stops, the Israelites will weaken in their faith, and Pharaoh will appear and turn them into slaves. When the rooster crowed again, Musa ibn Imran would appear and put an end to Pharaoh’s oppression.
The Prophet Ayyub (ع) and his angelic patience
It is said that Ayyub was a descendant of G’ays, although there were hardly any Prophets in G’ays’ lineage. He married Yusuf’s granddaughter, whose name was Rahmat. She was the daughter of Yusuf’s son.
Ayyub himself, on his mother’s side, was a descendant of Lut.
He loved to welcome guests and became famous among the people as a God-follower. Ayoub loved God and became known to the world of angels as a servant pleased by Allah Himself.
This is what made the devil especially hate Ayyub.
- The toughest trial
Allah gave the devil almost complete power over Ayyub. So that the devil would understand his complete powerlessness over the true slaves of Allah…
Ayyub lost all his possessions and his children. He was very ill for many years. Only his wife Rahmat remained with him.
For the last seven years they have been banished from the village. And during all this time no one visited them. The wife worked and fed them both, for Ayyub was sick and could not work.
- The end of suffering
The ordeal was over. The angel Jabrail brought him the quince of paradise, and the sickness passed. Then he bathed in hot and cold springs, so his health returned. Ayyub became young again. Allah gave him 26 children, among whom the eldest were Haumil, Mukil, Rashad, Rashid and Bashir.
Ayyub lived about a hundred years.
- Lam, son of Dag’am
Lam was a king. He wanted to marry Ayyub’s daughter, but he was rejected. After all, a Muslim woman cannot marry an infidel. A war broke out. Lam won, and Bashir, son of Ayyub and brother of the desired bride, was taken prisoner. A ransom was set for Bashir’s return.
- Bashir becomes a Prophet named Zu-l-Kifl (ع)
Haumil, who was the eldest in Ayyub’s clan and in charge of all matters, had a dream. In the dream a voice told him that it was not necessary to pay the ransom because Lam would accept faith in Allah.
When Lam heard that the ransom would not be paid, he decided to burn Bashir in the fire. But the fire would not touch the descendant of Ibrahim, just as it had not harmed his ancestor in his time.
And then King Lam believed and accepted Islam. For the religion of God since Adam’s time had only this name, Islam. It is not the religion of the Arabs or of the Prophet Muhammad alone. It is the religion of all who believe in God from the creation of the world until the Day of Judgment.
Then the brothers gladly gave their sister in marriage to Lam. And Bashir was nicknamed Zu-l-Kifl because he was the guarantor of the cause. And Allah sent Zu-l-Kifl as a Prophet to Sham.
- The G’amalikites: descendants of G’amlik, son of Sam and grandson of Noah
Bashir (Zu-l-Kifl) began to call the peoples of Sham to Allah. Wars began, in which he was assisted by his son-in-law Lam and his brother Haumil.
Soon Haumil died, then Bashir and Lam died.
Then the G’amalikites, the descendants of G’amlik, came to Sham. That is, the territory of modern Syria, Jordan, Palestine, and Lebanon. It is these lands that are commonly referred to as Sham.
And the presence of the G’amalikites continued in Sham until the time of Prophet Shug’ayyb, who later gave his daughter to Prophet Musa, becoming his father-in-law.
- Prophet Shug’ayyb (ع), Moses’ father-in-law
Shug’ayyb’s real name was Yatrun in his native Syrian language. On his father’s side he was a descendant of Ibrahim: Ibrahim — Mad’yan — Yajashar — Mikail — Sang’un — Yatrun (or Shug’ayyb). And his mother was the daughter of Lut. The nickname Shug’ayyb was reserved for him, as Allah calls him in the Qur’an.
Mad’yan, son of Ibrahim, builds a fortress city, then named after him
Mad’yan lived a long time in the world. He had four sons, and his wife was of the family of G’amlik. His offspring greatly increased.
Mad’yan, fearing the strengthening of the G’amalikites, decided to build a new city near the village of Ayka, where they had lived before.
The city was called Mad’yan, after its founder. Mad’yan was heavily fortified and turned into a fortress.
It was all done so that people could live and not be afraid of the G’amalikites.
- Allahumma barik li fi shug’aybi
Sang’un, Shug’ayyb’s father, was a god-pleaser. He lived in the town of Mad’yan. Sang’un kept asking God to bless his offspring and said: Allahumma barik li fi shug’aybi. Allah heard these prayers and blessed his son. The people named the boy Shug’ayyb, forgetting the real name of the future Prophet.
- Allah sent Shug’ayyb as Prophet to the people of Mad’yan and Ayka
Shug’ayyb became the Prophet. His people wallowed in false trade, engaging in monopolistic speculation and ripping off customers. The merchants bought up grain and waited for prices to rise, and then monopolistically drove people into hopelessness. The merchants also introduced double measures: they bought with large measures and sold with small measures. As a result, 100 measures of grain bought could reach 80 measures of grain.
No one on Earth had ever done this before.
- The people of Shug’ayyb did not heed the exhortation
The people were not even willing to listen to him. They continued to pray to idols and cheat while trading.
Shug’ayyb reminded them of the five nations that Allah had already destroyed: the nations of Nuh, Hud, Salih, Ibrahim, and Lut.
One of the 4 rulers of the city demanded, as a miracle, that the idol acknowledge God and say it out loud. When this happened, none of them agreed to believe in Allah.
- The people of Shug’ayyb were destroyed
Allah and the winds were sent to tame them. And flies with deadly vinegar. But the people tried to run away or hide, they did not want to repent and acknowledge God. Because of greed alone? I don’t know.
Allah ordered Shug’ayyb to leave these people.
A black cloud appeared that completely engulfed the whole tribe. With heat burning the skin of those people down to the liver. The angel Jabrail’s voice frightened them, increasing the torment of the wicked. They offended the poor and weak, they would not listen to anything. And here was the end of everything.
The whole tribe went to Hell.
Except for Shug’ayyb, his family, and those who believed in God.
- The Prophet Musa (ع) and his magic staff
Musa, or Moses, is one of the greatest Prophets of mankind. His story is often repeated in the Qur’an. Very often. And for a reason. Why did Allah give him so much attention?
The true reasons are known only to Allah.
The beast, however, is surprised at one quality in Musa that he has heard about. Like a little child who needs his mother all the time and always runs to her no matter what happens, so was Musa with Allah. Beneficent are those who are like him.
Although the only master of the beast is the Prophet.
- The Israilites in Misr (Egypt)
Along with Yaqub from Sham came 72 men. After Yusuf’s death, there were 80. Over the centuries, the number of Israilites increased many times over.
As time passed, they departed from the faith, as had been foretold, and Allah sent Pharaoh. Who made them taste all the bitterness of suffering.
- The birth of Waleed, the future Pharaoh
A 180-year-old shepherd named Musg’ab had no children. A passing cow with a calf told him that he would have a very bad son who would lead people to Hell.
And so it happened.
The old man did not see his son; he died before he did. His mother taught Waleed to be a carpenter, but he took a bad road. Doing the wrong things, he soon took charge of the king’s guard. Then he killed the king and bought off the viziers, usurping all power in Misr.
The devil and the vizier Haman were the first to come to Pharaoh to bow. The whole nation recognized him as «god». The Israilites, too, bowed down before him. But the believers in their hearts bowed to God, not to the king of Misr.
- Pharaoh forcibly married Asiyat
She was a righteous woman who was a cousin of Musa, who had not yet been born. Asiyat knew beforehand that she would marry an unfaithful man and be killed by him. She obeyed God and married Pharaoh so that he would not kill many innocent people because of her refusal.
As punishment for her wickedness, Pharaoh was never able to approach her once in his life: every time he wanted to approach Asiyat, his whole body went numb. He built a palace for her where she lived.
- Musa was born on the fifth day of the 12th lunar month of Zu-l-Hijjah
Pharaoh had a dream that an Israelite boy would be born who would kill him and take away his power. So all the boys began to be killed every year. Then they started killing them every other year because the number of Israelite slaves decreased. That is why Harun, Musa’s older brother, survived. And Musa was saved by Allah Himself, who compelled his mother to throw her son into the Nile. The waters of the river brought the trunk with the baby to Asiyat’s palace. Pharaoh’s sick daughter was relieved by the boy’s presence. It was predicted that only the saliva of a man who appeared alive from the water could cure her. The girl recovered.
So Musa was left in the palace and raised as Pharaoh’s son.
Allah outwitted the tyrant.
- Despite his frequent conflicts with Pharaoh, Musa survived and grew up
Musa did not recognize Pharaoh as a «god», but Allah made it so that he could never kill him for it.
Musa grew up, to everyone in Misr he was Pharaoh’s son. Until he accidentally killed a Coptic while defending a Israylite. He had to flee and hide for ten long years with Shug’ayyb, his future father-in-law, in Mad’yan.
- Musa at Shug’ayyib’s
On reaching Mad’yan, he happened to run into the two daughters of Shug’ayyb and helped them. Afterwards he married one of them, Safura, and stayed there as a shepherd for 10 years. He received Adam’s staff, which was kept by his father-in-law.
Allah was preparing Musa for his mission; it was time to return to Egypt.
- The sacred valley of Tua
On the way to Misr, in the sacred valley of Tua, Allah spoke to Musa, ordering him to go to Pharaoh. That Pharaoh should turn away from polytheism and return to God. Musa was assisted by his older brother Harun, whom Allah also made a Prophet.
- Battle with Pharaoh
Pharaoh, in the end, never acknowledged God. Neither did his people. Allah sent much suffering to the people of Egypt for their disobedience and pride. But they never bowed down.
Then Allah ordered Musa to lead all the Israelites out of Egypt and bring them back to Sham.
Pharaoh chased them and was drowned in the Red Sea along with his army. His body is now on display in the British Museum: Allah has bowed him down in a bow before Himself. And in the eternal world there awaits Pharaoh an eternity of Hell.
- The misery of the Israelites
Because of their persistent quarrels with Musa and their dissatisfaction with God’s decisions, Allah was angry with the Israelites until the Day of Judgment. This anger of God increased after they wanted to kill Jesus, whom Allah had taken alive into Heaven.
Musa never made it to Sham, leaving this world. Later his brother Harun died. And the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years.
- The Torah, or the Pentateuch of Moses
Musa received from Allah the first of the four great Books. It is said that only four people knew it by heart: Musa, Harun, Yushag’ (Joshua), and G’uzayr. There are other opinions on this subject as well.
Also, Musa received the Tablets, which were made of the tree of paradise.
- The Prophet Yushag’ (ع), or Joshua
It was he who accompanied Musa for his encounter with Khizir in the story told in the Qur’an.
Yushag’ ruled over the Israelites for 27 years following Musa. He conquered 30 cities in Sham and defeated the militant Jabbarin tribe. Under him the Israelites were finally able to settle in Sham.
Yushag’ lived 120 years and was buried on Mount Afranim.
- The Prophet Hizkil (ع), the third Prophet of the Israelites after Musa
God put to death 70,000 Israilites for another act of disobedience. Then He sent Hizkil to revive them, and they came back to life. But their descendants exude an unpleasant odor to this day.
- The Prophet Ilyas (ع), still alive today
He had a thunderous voice that frightened people. They wanted to kill him out of jealousy. So he lived for many years in the mountains with the beasts, away from people.
When Ilyas was 40 years old, Allah sent him as a Prophet to guide those who had gone astray to the path of Truth. He had the power of 30 Rasul, or Messengers, each with the power of 40 men.
The Israylites had gone deep into paganism and did not want to listen to either the Torah or Ilyas. They wanted to burn him. But the fire was extinguished by the voice of Ilyas. Only a few people believed, but they soon died as well.
Aljasag’ (Elisha) became Ilyas’ companion and his viceroy over the Israelites after him.
God sent Ilyas a horse so that he could fly through Heaven alive until the Day of Judgment.
Ilyas and Khizir fast every year during the month of Ramadan in Quds (Jerusalem) and meet for hadj in Mecca.
The Prophet Shamuil (ع), or Shamg’un
Ten years after the death of Aljasag’, Kahin ibn G’ayla became the viceroy of the Israylites. He was of Harun’s lineage. Kahin ruled for 40 years. It is said that he died about 500 years after Musa’s death. It was during his reign that the Prophets Dawud and Shamuil were born.
- Shamuil decided to retrieve Adam’s chest from the hands of the G’amalekites
The Israelites needed a king to start this war. The water bearer Talut became it. This was the prophecy.
Talut and his 80,000-strong army marched against Jalut (Goliath). In the end, only 313 warriors remained before the battle. Young Dawud killed Jalut and was to receive his reward: half the kingdom and the king’s daughter. But Talut broke the deal and wanted to kill Dawud. In the end, he gave his daughter in marriage, as he had promised.
The repentant Talut, at the tomb of the Prophet Shamuil, asked him for advice on how to atone for his sins before Dawud. He and his 10 sons were commanded to fight in the way of Allah against the infidels until the end of days. They were all killed in battle.
To be continued
Chapter 121. Events
- People’s thirst
People want action. When it starts, they groan. And fate gets the better of them again. Like the story of Sinbad the Sailor from the fairy tales of Scheherazade, who was bored at home after his last adventure and got into an even scarier story.
- Don’t confuse people’s abilities with their essence
A person is capable and can do. But he won’t do it. The reason is his essence. It will take over…
Why has the story of the beast receded into the background? It’s replaced by a reflection that’s not very understandable and unpleasant for some. Then to the history of the world. Without the history of the world one cannot understand the history of the beast. And the main character of this book is God. Not the beast. In case anyone doesn’t get it.
But there’s a spooky story I’ll let myself tell. It explains everything. All the inconsistencies and supposed miracles of this world. All the lies of this world in the name of something. For God does not need to be deceived. Though He allows His servants to do so when necessary.
So Allah called Moses to talk to him on Mount Sinai. We will call him Musa, which is his name in the Qur’an.
Allah’s conversations with Musa were not by means of sound vibrations and human ears. But in a different way.
- The story of the golden calf
The Israilites constantly asked Musa to give them an idol, just like all the other nations. Humans are analogous creatures, such is their construction. But humans are endowed with the ability to learn and to correct mistakes. The Jews didn’t want to go that way. But this is not about them. This story is about all people in general and everyone in particular.
When Musa reached Mount Sinai, Allah informed him that the Israilites had begun to worship a golden calf instead of God. Musa was surprised. In fact, it turned out that the calf had come to life and started mooing. Musa was even more surprised. But his astonishment reached its peak when he found out that Allah had brought the calf to life.
The Jews had been told many times that they didn’t need an idol. But they insisted. And Allah granted their wish. They wanted a delusion, and Allah gave them a delusion. Just as they wanted it.
The same thing is happening all over the world with all people. They want to be deluded. And Allah allows them to become deluded.
That is why Allah subjected the Nile to Pharaoh so that he could change the course of the river with a swipe of his finger. So that all who wanted to go astray would find it and follow Pharaoh into Hell. Who among today’s miracle «makers» is capable of such a thing? None. But they also call themselves «gods» or «prophets» or «saints» — without following the way of Truth.
It has also been said that the Jews worshipped the golden calf because of their love of worldly wealth.
- Are people looking for excuses or incapable of understanding?
No. They are busy worshipping themselves. Fulfilling the every whim of an ego who only considers himself a «god». This is the worst form of paganism. It is the main specialization of the beast. Who has been given complete power over the ego-nafs of every human being on earth. Not to change people’s essence, for that is impossible. But to drive the ego into a wild terror of fear of the beast who has absolute power over it by the will of Allah.
Here even the beating and slaying in the world of demons and sorcerers will seem like a bedtime story for children. Congratulations…
- The Rational Proof of the Existence of God
Taken from Shaykhul-Islam Abu Hamid al-G’azali’s book Ihya g’ulumi din. We have given it briefly, in essence, and as far as we could understand it ourselves. Either I was out of shape, or I was tired, or I was dumb, or I was stupid to begin with — but it took me three times to reread it the first time. Until I got the logical reasoning behind the question. There’s astronomy and logic and all sorts of different terms.
Bismi Llahi r-rahmani r-rahim.
In terms of reason, it is obvious and indisputable that there is an emergent one. That is, one who needs the Creator. This world — has arisen. So it has a Creator.
So why should there undoubtedly be a Creator for the emerged one?
[So far, it seems clear and not very scary.]
Every emergent is defined by the time of emergence. Therefore it can be represented as — before emergence and after. In that case, time, as a determinant, also requires its own definition — who will determine time?
[Already more complicated, but understandable for now.]
Therefore, the Postulate that the world — apart from God — will arise is accepted.
Three Assertions will be given to prove this Postulate.
[Water went into the hut, it began.]
As the First Assertion, it will be given that all material bodies can be either in motion or at rest. This is clearly and intuitively obvious. Only those who have fallen into ignorance and gone astray from the path of reason need proof of it.
[Tough. But to the point. And the fools and the proud are not the least bit sorry, not one bit.]
As a Second Assertion, it is given that both rest and motion belong to the arisen. Why are they arisen? They follow each other, that is the essence of their being. There is the possibility of motion, even if the body is at rest. The opposite is also true when a moving body is capable of being at rest. Reason recognizes this.
[Heavy artillery awakens…?]
In a given moment there is one of two states, which is the disappearance of the previous phase of the motion-rest duo. If they were antecedent, they would go on endlessly — neither disappearing nor appearing, thus succeeding each other.
[First technical knockdown. That’s not bad…].
But there is no infinite stroke here, there is no infinite stroke. So motion and rest are emergent. In the case of the flow of pre-eternity, disappearance is impossible.
The Third Assertion cites the necessity of recognizing the eternity of God.
[Beautiful and elegant.]
Everything that has the qualities of the arisen or that depends on the arisen will necessarily be the arisen.
[How clear and concise, bravo.]
The following is given to prove this. If this were not so, we would have an infinite chain of originators and antecedents, where there is no first element of this infinite chain.
Who would be the first in the chain there? And who would be the last? Without these conditions, this chain would lose its existence as such. Which follows, according to the arguments of reason.
If it has arisen in a given moment, it will not come to pass. How could there be an end to that which has no end? It is impossible to find an end?
[The end of the first round.]
Another argument is made, using the celestial spheres as an example. If celestial bodies revolving around their own axis were without end and with a limit, they would have to have an even, or odd, or simultaneously an even-odd number of revolutions around their axis.
Let it be said in advance that there is no possibility of an even or odd number of revolutions at the same time. Which is accepted by every sound mind.
If it, the number of revolutions around the axis, is only even, then by adding one more revolution it becomes odd. Which is impossible in the case of the infinite, which has no limit.
That which has no limit and no end cannot reach infinity simply by adding one. It is the same if the initial value of the number of turns was odd. When one is added, it will become even. In that case, the infinite number has been augmented by only one. Which is impossible, by definition.
If an even and an odd came together, then the quantity cannot be considered infinite.
In other words, the world has the qualities of an emerged one. And, in this case, the world is considered emergent. If this is proven, then the existence of the Creator is accepted as already axiomatic. For which the Second Ground will be cited…
There’s a lot more in the original, Foundations about the specifics of God.
His pre-eternity (Ground Two).
That He is First and Last, manifest and hidden (Ground Three).
That God cannot be a substance (Ground Four).
That God is not a body of substances or atoms (Ground Five).
That God does not have accidents or accidents (Ground Six).
And other Foundations.
Chapter 122. Such moments
- Conversation about the hidden and justice
It seems to people that there is no justice in the world. For they do not know the beginning of history. So they can’t understand the end of it. And everything seems unfair to them. But it is not. Foolish and proud people conclude on this empty basis that there is no God.
Stupid? Proud? No. The essence of man’s choice.
Musa was a great Prophet, but he did not possess the knowledge of g’ilm-ladunni — the knowledge of hidden causes. But this knowledge was possessed by Khizir. Allah arranged for them to meet at Musa’s request, as narrated in the Qur’an in chapter 18, «The Cave.»
Musa wanted to be with Khizir in order to master this type of knowledge. But Khizir said that Musa would not be able to be patient and would ask questions. Then it was agreed that after the third question they would part.
Both boarded the ship, which Khızır secretly broke from the owner by making a hole in the ship. Later it turned out that the king’s ship was coming from behind, which was taking the ships. But he did not need the broken ship, and he left it to its owner.
Next, in one village, Khizir killed a boy. Who, it turned out, was to grow up an infidel and force the believing parents into disbelief and eternal torment in Hell. The boy’s shoulder blade bore the seal, kafirun la yu’minu biLlahi abadan. That is, «the infidel who will never believe in Allah». It was this boy’s scapular that was later shown to Musa. Allah replaced this boy to his parents with a girl, from whose offspring he brought forth 70 Prophets.
Then they came to a certain village in Antakya, where the inhabitants did not offer them even a glass of water to drink. But Khizir and Musa mended the fence of the two orphans for free. As it turned out later, their father was a righteous man and had buried the gold under that fence. When the children grow up, Allah will point them to the treasure, and they will find it and be able to keep it.
So that is the story of the hidden and the just. To the clever one, that is enough. That is why the Prophet said: «Rahima Llahu ahy Musa, lau sobar laroaynal g’ajaib.» That is, «May Allah have mercy on my brother Musa: had he been able to endure more, we would have seen unbelievable things».
P.S. So the beast asks no questions and silently follows God’s orders.
- Futile pleading and a rigid life plan?
If your Heavenly Service application included participation in the Olympics, so be it.
A rigid life plan.
You won’t have time for anything. And you will be led to your goal. If the application was accepted. I don’t know if they’ll let that kind of thing go halfway. Things happen. But he’s going to be in for a treat. Whether he makes it or not.
But all this hardship is more like the trill of a nightingale on a clear and warm moonlit night against the backdrop of those who will have to win the Olympics. Especially if more than once.
- Time, what to do with it?
Work in advance. For perspective. So that when people just start taking on work, you already have a finished project.
How do you do that?
Work when you least want to work. When you want to rest or take a break.
And work on things that, at the very least, aren’t very interesting or, ideally, disgusting.
The great fighter pilot Pokryshkin constantly practiced turning to the right, hateful and inconvenient for right-handed people. The pilot himself was right-handed. So were most of his opponents.
- We want one thing, they give us another?
No. They only give us what we want. But not in words, but in the heart. That is, our true desires.
The ego opposes it.
No, it is not against fame and money. After all, the ego’s main goal is the mortal world and its pleasures. But it will do nothing for it if the goal is righteous. If you are destined to be a rich man spending money on the poor. But not to reduce the tax burden, but because it is the right thing to do. After all, Allah made the rich rich as much as he made the poor poor. And if the rich do not take care of the poor, He will punish them with great punishment. Apparently, that’s why most of Paradise is poor.
There are plenty of poor people in the world right now. So are the rich.
- How to tell the difference?
Man-eating lions must be killed. Not because they are lions. But because they are cannibals.
It’s the same with bad people.
Although they too have a purpose in this world. So that they bring suffering to others. So that those others will be forgiven by Allah and go to Paradise. And these, the bad tormentors, will go deeper into Hell.
But for such also in this world comes the hour of reckoning.
Pharaoh, Abu Jahl, and Nimrud were humiliated and killed. No regret.
- And how does one know?
The sign of a bad man, who is a demon in his nature, is that he cannot physically die — until he repays evil for good. Until he does evil to his benefactor. And only then can the angel of death come for him.
- When you don’t know what to do and need advice
It happens to people. Even with the very smart ones. It even happens to wise men. Who can give advice to the whole world. But when they themselves need advice, they’ll find it in another person.
That’s why you have to seek advice.
- I don’t like the cunning ones
Cunning ones want advice, too. So that if it works out, they can say they’re so smart. And if it doesn’t work, say it’s all your fault.
I do not give such advice.
And I don’t give advice to the stubborn ones either.
The ones who want to know whether they should go to Delhi or New York. When they should be going to Paris.
The luminary of the world of knowledge, Imam Shafig’i, did not know what to do when he was asked a question. And he usually thought long and hard about whether the answer would benefit the person who asked.
If the person turned away from the truth after knowing it — Imam Shafig’i lost interest in him. If the person accepted the truth, then the Imam showed respect to him.
Imam Shamil’s saying
«When Allah exalts you, be humble. And when Allah endows you with power, be merciful.»
It is necessary to remember, insha Allah.
Chapter 123. Notes
- How the ego governs man
In simplified form, it looks like this.
The ego-nafs, or self, is located at the top of man’s physical heart near the aorta. It pumps its poison through the aorta and blood into every cell of the body in the form of «ana Llah». That is, «the ego-me is the only deity in the universe, and there is no other deity besides me».
At the bottom of the heart is the spirit, that substance that comes into the womb on the 121st day and animates the fetus. When the angel of death takes this spirit away, death comes. That is, death is time. Not a set of causes incompatible with life. But, in order not to frighten people, Allah usually accompanies death with visible causes. Although in the past the angel G’azrail came in a visible form and took away the souls of people without external reasons.
The ego presses from above. The spirit, which is at the bottom of the heart, is repulsed from below, which is much more difficult. Fulfilling God’s injunctions weakens the ego. Fulfilling God’s injunctions strengthens the ego. Naturally, the opposite is true with the spirit. By following God’s commands, it gains strength; by giving in to the prohibitions, it becomes weaker. The battlefield of ego and spirit is the heart. Which, as a result of the battle, becomes angelic, like the leaders of Muhammad the Prophet. Or, on the contrary, demonic (Koranic «sealed hearts»), like those of Pharaoh, Nimrud, Abu Jahl and the like.
P.S. That is why the nafs ego hates zikr, or the remembrance of God — La ilaha illa Llah — «there is no deity but Allah». This zikr peels off his skin like sandpaper and makes his spirit as strong as possible.
- Only one goal and only one obstacle
The goal is God. The obstacle is the ego.
There is also the ego’s main accomplice and helper in the face of the mortal world.
The system is fine-tuned and works well.
Those who wanted worldly life do not take part in competitions.
Those who wanted Heaven and God are not allowed to compete.
Whoever wanted only God has a chance. Though a ghostly one.
Every girl understands that it’s not her that this guy wants. It’s her money. Or her beauty. Or her nobility.
Wouldn’t Allah understand something like that?
In a crowd of maniacs seeking absolute power over time and space. Or shallow kings dreaming of immortality and the preservation of power.
Everyone is interested in consequences that emerge from nothingness and mean nothing. Almost everyone…
Chapter 124. Moments
- From Moses’ first scroll
Along with the Torah, Musa received ten other scrolls.
Here is a brief and approximate text of the first of them.
«I, God, testify that there is no other deity but Me, and that Muhammad is My servant and Messenger.
If any one of you is dissatisfied with the fate he has received from Me and is unwilling to endure the suffering sent by Me, it will mean that such a person has not shown gratitude to Me, although I have bestowed many benefits upon him. It means that he has not appreciated My lot given to him. Let him look for another god.
If someone wakes up in the morning in sorrow, he is under the wrath of Allah.
All complaints of misfortune will be complaints against Me.
If someone befriends a man because of his wealth — he loses two thirds of his faith.
Whoever is not pleased with a dead man and starts punching himself in the face — he is like the man who destroyed the Kaaba and fought with Me by taking a spear in his hand.
If someone doesn’t care if he eats what is forbidden or what is allowed — I won’t care what door he enters Hell through.
If someone has not added to his religion in a day — his deeds are bad, and it is better for him to die than to live.
Whoever does his deeds according to his knowledge, Allah will bestow His knowledge on him and reward him.
He who desires long life for himself will be a hypocrite in deeds».
- The essence of the mind and its 4 parts. The benefits of the mind
The mind has been called the means of attaining Happiness….
The debate about the mind, or intellect, boils down, according to the author of Ihya, to the fact that people, during the debate, imply different parts of the mind as such.
The first part of the mind (which is innate) is the actual ability to perceive information and convert it from quantity to quality. It is the capacity to perceive theory and the speculative nature of knowledge. This applies to all kinds of knowledge: from the most basic kind of knowledge (Knowledge of God) to everyday derivatives of knowledge (knowledge of mathematics or carpentry).
In other words, this part of the mind is analogous to a processor that is set once and does not change after that. If it is weak, a person will be stupid, even with vast arrays of knowledge (or files on a hard drive).
This type of mind is also associated with the light in the heart. It is a certain level of light in the heart that allows one to see and understand. Let me remind you that one can see the Truth only with the heart, as the Qur’an says and has already cited in our book before.
The main difference between people in the mind (or the innate part of it) is this. He who has received more light in his heart (a higher processor number, say, the Pentium-3) will be more intelligent than he who has received much less light (for example, the 286th processor of the pre-Pentium era, unable to operate Windows and designed for two Norton speakers).
The hadith says that after the creation of the mind, Allah commanded it to approach, and the mind approached. Then Allah commanded it to withdraw, and the mind immediately withdrew. Then Allah swore that the most precious thing from now on would be the mind. God will bestow and enforce through the mind, and will reward and punish through the mind.
When a man was praised in the presence of the Prophet, he asked about his mind. The reasoning was that the ignorance of a fool does more harm than the deeds of a wicked man. On the Day of Judgment, those who have a decent mind will be rewarded. It is the intellect that brings one nearer to God and exalts one in degrees.
In another hadith, by meaning, it is said that one reaches the degrees by his virtue of virtue. For this purpose he fasts during the day and prays at night so that his morals become perfect. When his disposition reaches perfection, he will, by the perfection of his mind, acquire perfect faith and submit completely to God, rebelling against the devil.
Another hadith, by implication, says that everything in this world has a support, and the support of the believer is the mind. Depending on the strength of one’s mind, one succeeds in worship. The wicked of the flames of Hell will cry out that if they had reason, they would not burn in Hell.
In another hadith, the Prophet, by implication, said that every thing has a vehicle. Man, on the other hand, is moved by his mind. The best of men, those who are strong with evidence and who are right in matters of argument, are those who are smarter.
So, the first part of the mind is innate and determines the ability to perceive knowledge as such.
The second part of the mind (also innate) is the ability to understand that two is greater than one. There is no distinction among people here. This quality is the same in all people.
The third part of the mind (which is acquired) is called knowledge, which the experience of life gives us and which will be the full understanding of the matter.
The fourth part of the mind (also acquired) is the higher purpose, being the ability of man to suppress the passions of ego and to know in advance all the consequences of the cause. The greatness of man and his distinction from animals lies in the acquisition of this part of the mind. Where the foundation of the whole affair will be the first part of the mind.
Chapter 125. Success
- Another story of justice and retribution
One day Allah wanted to show Moses the secrets of His predestination. God placed Moses near a spring and made him invisible.
Soon a man came to the spring, washed his face and drank water. He forgot his large belt of pure gold and left.
Some time later the boy drove the sheep to the spring. He saw the abandoned gold belt and, not finding the owner, took it for himself.
After some time the old man came to the source, took ablutions and began to pray. And then the owner of the belt returned. He waited until the old man had finished praying and asked where the belt was. The old man, of course, did not know and began to deny it. In a rage, the owner of the belt killed the old man, but when he searched him, he found nothing.
Musa did not understand anything of what he saw.
Allah explained what had happened.
The master of the belt had a poor worker who had worked for him for four years but had never been paid for his work. The owner of the belt sold all his possessions and bought this golden belt to move to a new place and live there.
That boy with the sheep was that worker’s son. The owner of the belt didn’t want to pay for four years of work — now he gave him all his possessions.
And the old man in his youth was an outlaw, and while robbing a caravan he accidentally killed the father of the belt-owner. Who, as a boy, asked Allah for the right of blood vengeance. Which he did.
But none of these people understood anything in this mortal world about the reasons for what happened.
My advice. Do not ask Allah for justice, ask for His mercy. It is by the justice of Allah that sinners go to hell. And by Allah’s mercy the righteous get Paradise.
- How does the beast punish and forgive?
This creature is prone to forgiveness, the default setting of the system. Such was the master of the beast, the Prophet.
But even the Prophet did not always forgive everyone. Ordering the execution of the poet Abul-G’azzata sh-Shag’ir with the words that no one is allowed to deceive the Prophet Allah twice.
- List 15
The question of forgiveness or punishment goes back exclusively to Allah and no one else. When He is inclined to forgive, one achieves forgiveness in this world. When Allah is inclined to punish man, man will be punished.
It is imperative to consider the following.
First, Allah forbade injustice to Himself and made it forbidden to all His servants.
Secondly, Allah said that His mercy is greater than His wrath. In other words, Allah restrains Himself from displaying wrath and retaliation.
Now imagine what a man had to do for the Most Merciful of all mercies to leave such a man in Hell for all eternity?
Troubles and intrigues, innocent people dying.
Murder and robbery, where innocents died.
No pity for orphans, the weak and the sick.
These people had no pity for anyone.
Why should anyone feel pity for them?
And why should that someone be Allah?
That is why Allah ordered the killing of 15 people for their deeds in due time. Anyone could and was obligated to do this.
And an indication of the above would be that only 4 ended up being killed. The rest begged forgiveness.
Chapter 126. Giving back
- Of justice and its necessity
One of the kings died. Then they saw him in a dream and asked what Allah had done to him. To which the king replied that Allah had forgiven him. This phrase means that the man is in Paradise. For one can only enter Allah’s Paradise after Allah has forgiven him. Therefore, the expression that the man was forgiven means that the man went to Paradise.
The person who saw the dream asked about the reason for his forgiveness by God. This, too, is a common practice among the righteous. Everyone wants to know how to obtain Allah’s contentment.
To this the dead king replied that he had never in his life punished the innocent or forgiven the guilty.
- Justice as a frame of reference
Allah’s laws govern everything. And He Himself directly decides all matters. Although there are visible institutions of Heavenly or Earthly services in the form of angels and men.
But Allah Himself makes exceptions to the rules. And Allah has opened the door of repentance to us before the sun rises from the West before the End of the World. He whose repentance has been accepted by God is considered to be like a man who did not commit sin.
Moreover. A repentant sinner benefits from the absence of pride, insha Allah. For he is more aware of his sinfulness and imperfection than anyone else. Therefore it is said that every four out of five Knower of God were at the bottom of the world because of their sins. Before Allah raised them above the worlds.
Chapter 127. Top
- The Harder the Way
Abu Yazid al-Bastami, who was called the Sultan of the Knower of God, was asked about the benefits of advancing on the spiritual path. He replied that the benefits of the path were commensurate with the difficulties and sufferings of the individual in the advancement. The harder and longer the journey, the greater the benefit, insha Allah.
Chapter 128. A History of the World (Plain and Simple). Part III
- The Prophet Dawud (ع) and his Zabur Psalter
Allah subjected Dawud to iron; he became the first blacksmith to make articles of steel. Before him, no one in the world made steel objects.
Allah gave Dawud the second of the four great Books, the Zabur. It had 150 chapters with only praise to God; the book did not contain Shariah rules. When Dawud recited the Zabur, the whole world was enraptured, but the devil didn’t know what to do with envy. He invented musical instruments to distract slaves from God in this way.
The Prophet Muhammad was also mentioned in the present text of Zabur. Later, the texts of the Taurat-Torah and the Zabur-Psalter were changed by men, as was then the Injil-Gospel. Allah no longer entrusted men with the preservation of His Books. The last, Fourth, of the great Books, the Qur’an, Allah promised to preserve Himself. Therefore, only the Qur’an remained unchanged from all the Books of God.
- Allah makes Dawud Prophet and King over the Israilites after the death of Talut
He united spiritual and secular authority as he did under Yusuf in Egypt. Dawud, who had previously killed Goliath, conquered many lands and defeated the Jabbarins, recapturing Quds (Jerusalem). Together with his son Sulayman he began the construction of the great mosque at Quds, which Sulayman completed.
Sulayman, while still a child, made wise judgments that amazed everyone. Allah told Dawud to hand over the reins to his son and for him to concentrate on worship.
- Sulayman ibn Dawud (ع), possessor of the greatest power and wealth in the world
Even as the richest and most powerful man in the world, Sulayman was a hermit. He ate only food purchased from the sale of baskets he wove himself. So did his father Dawud, who lived off the income from blacksmithing.
Do you know any such rulers now?
- Sulayman answered 13 questions before he got power
That is why the number 13 is not an unhappy number, as common people think. Allah subjected men and jinns to him, and even the wind that carried Sulayman’s army on a flying carpet. Sulayman also understood the language of birds and beasts.
The guarantor of Suleiman’s power in this world was his ring, on which was engraved the Greatest Name of Allah.
- The queen of Sabaea named Balkis (Queen of Sheba)
Sulayman called her to faith in Allah, and she accepted that call by marrying him. It was then that the man delivered her throne from Yemen to Quds faster than the jinn ifrit, proving the superiority of knowledge over the power of jinns and demons.
In all Sulayman had a thousand wives, and his father Dawud had a hundred wives.
- Sulayman completed a magnificent mosque in Quds
It was all of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls. Jinns all over the world collected and brought them for the construction. During the construction Sulayman died. And the jinn went on working for another year, unaware of their lord’s death. Until a little worm chewed through Sulayman’s staff and it fell to the ground.
Some consider him a Prophet, some do not. He was a black slave who lived for a thousand years. Luqman gave up his viceroyalty on earth when he found out he had a choice. Then the angels took the viceroyalty to Dawud and he accepted it.
In return for power over the world, Allah granted Luqman wisdom, even small crumbs of which continue to delight the world.
During his lifetime he met a thousand Prophets and learned only 8 things from them.
- Eight things
Take care of your heart in namaz-prayer.
Take care of your throat in food.
Take care of your tongue among people.
Take care of your eyes in a foreign place.
Forget the bad things people have done to you.
Forget the good things you have done to people.
- Truthfulness, justifying trust, and refusing to be superfluous
Among the wise sayings of Luqman, let us mention just a few.
When asked why he was so exalted and respected in the world, he replied, truthfulness, justification of trust, and refraining from unnecessary things.
He also said not to look to those who turn away from you. Instead, you should look to those who have turned on you, thanking fate for it…
- The Prophet Shag’ya (ع)
Although his name is not mentioned in the Qur’an, it appears in the History of the Prophets in various authors.
In the wake of Sulayman and his greatness, the Jews began a rift, which eventually ended in their mass extermination and exile all over the world because of their sins and disputes with God.
- The ruler of Babylon surrounds Quds
King Sadiq’at ruled at that time in Q’uds, and Shag’ya also lived at that time. Sadiq’at was old and sick and wanted to die. But Allah gave a reprieve for 15 years and defeated the army of Babylon, leaving only six men alive. Among them was Bukhtanasar, who in the future would destroy Jerusalem and exterminate the Jews for all their wickedness and for killing Allah’s Prophets.
Although Shag’ya’s prayers saved them from imminent death, his sermons and his call to a righteous life irritated the Israilites, who wallowed in debauchery and sin. As a result, they killed Shag’ya.
- The Prophet Armiyya (ع)
This Prophet’s name is not mentioned in the Qur’an either. He continued the work begun by Shag’ya.
- The prediction of Bukhtanasar: The angel Jabrail prevented the Jews from killing little Bukhtanasar
Allah wanted to punish the Israelites for all their dishonor in the world. So he sent the angel Jabrail to prevent them from killing Bukhtanasar. The Jews have disliked Jabrail ever since, as if he were to blame for their sins and the promised punishment for it.
Bukhtanasar (apparently Babylonian Nebuchadnezzar) was descended from Yaphet son of Nuh. He became the mighty king of Babylon, and the time of reckoning for the Israilites had come.
No matter how much Armiyya pleaded with his countrymen to calm down and return to God, nothing worked on them. So they condemned themselves to torment.
- Bukhtanasar takes Quds (Jerusalem)
The Jews began to sin even more.
Eventually, Bukhtanasar besieged Jerusalem.
An angel, in the form of a man, began to come to Armiyya every day for a fatwa (decision): what should one do if one does only good things to his relatives and finds no obedience? In the end, Armiyya said that an ungrateful kinsman was worthy of punishment. Thus, once again, permission was obtained to destroy the Israilites. Armiyya realized this later when Jerusalem fell.
Lightning struck the mosque of the city, the enemies entered and killed many people. The rest, fleeing, scattered into the world or were enslaved.
- The Holy Mosque of Jerusalem
Masjidul-Aqsa, as Allah calls it in the Qur’an, was rebuilt during the Arab Caliphate, when Caliph Umar conquered the city in the 15th AH.
The Prophet Daniyal (ع)
Among those captured by Bukhtanasar was Daniyal, son of Yuhanna and Hezerkil, going back to Dawud and being his descendant. He was sitting in prison when the ruler of Babylon had a dream that no one could unravel. Daniyal unraveled it and did not worship the king. Explaining simply: Allah allowed earthly worship only to Him. Otherwise He would take away the knowledge He had given to Daniyal.
This explanation was enough for Bukhtanasar, who revered the knowledge. Apparently, for a reason the man achieved such power and greatness, though in the mortal world.
Daniyal interpreted the dream, even without knowing the content of the dream beforehand. The dream was good. And Bukhtanasar drew Daniyal closer to him.
At the capture of the city of Sus, the oldest city on Earth, according to Ibn Kathir, the Arabs found a sarcophagus with the body of Daniyal.
Later, Tamerlane moved Daniyal’s body to himself in Samarkand.
The Prophet G’uzayr (ع)
He too was captured by Bukhtanasar.
G’uzayr slept for 100 years, which passed like an instant.
The Torah was lost to the Jews. Allah put its text into G’uzayr’s heart. And that was «enough» for the Israilites to honor him as a «son» of God. Later, an accidentally preserved text of the Torah was found that matched the text of G’uzayr.
- The Prophet Balukiya (ع) and his special love for the Prophet Muhammad (ص)
Balukiya’s father was a figure of religion. He found in the Torah that the Prophet Muhammad was a particularly beloved servant of Allah and endowed with all the graces of God. Out of jealousy he concealed this from the people, but soon the truth became known.
And Balukiya began to search for the Prophet Muhammad.
There were so many adventures there that a large book could be written about it.
He saw Muslim jinns, dragons, serpents of Hell. He saw angels who ruled over light and darkness, the winds and the seas. Baluk`ya saw the angel Mudir the overseer of Mount Qaf, which surrounds the earth.
This mountain is made of green jahonts. The roots of this mountain, if the angel pulls on them, cause earthquakes; they are like the blood vessels in the human body. And if you cut them, the earth will collapse altogether.
He found out about 40 thousand cities of angels behind the mountain Qaf. And of the 70,000 veils behind these cities.
And wherever he went, all the creatures repeated:
La ilaha illa Llah,
Muhammad rasulu Llah.
On one island he met huge serpents who had not heard of Israil, but knew Adam.
The angel Jabrail, whom he also met, said that Balukiya was saved on this perilous journey because of his love for the Prophet Muhammad.
On one island he met an angel in the form of a bird. There was a fried fish from Paradise that Allah had once sent to Adam. And so it did not spoil or diminish. This bird then brought that fish, which Allah Himself used to treat hungry wanderers with.
Sometimes Khizir also came to eat this fish. Soon Khızır appeared on this island and explained to Balukiya that the Prophet Muhammad would not be born in this world for a long time. Khızır helped the wanderer to cover the distance of 50 years of travel in one fell swoop, and Balukiya embraced his mother.
- People of the Saturday turned into monkeys and pigs by Allah
This happened in the village of Ailat, on the shores of the Red Sea.
Dawud made Friday a feast day, but the Jews were not happy about it. They chose to rest on Saturday without accepting God’s will. Allah granted their request, and no work was allowed on that day. But it was on this day that all the fish came, and they were fishermen. From Saturday to Saturday all the fish went back into the sea.
So their punishment for cunning befell them.
They made a pool connected to the sea, and shut it up at night. And they fished on Sunday.
And there were 70,000 people living in Ailat. Only 12,000 did not agree to that. They lived by the faith of God, and they condemned the craftiness of the rest of the Israilites.
The cunning got rich. The years went by. And one day Allah turned them all into pigs and monkeys.
