“…The three ideas – illuminationism [the literal transformation of ones state from a Bashari existence to a Nurani illuminated existence], pre-Adamism, and the central idea in Kabbalistic writings on the importance of letters and numbers in the journey to Ihsan – were appropriated from Arab Muslims and distorted. Today they are the most powerful ideas and teachings behind the confidence and arrogance of Islam’s and the Arab world’s greatest enemies. This is the definition of dajl. The master of dajl is personified in the Masih ad-Dajjal. The utilization and misappropriation of heavenly knowledge for hellish purposes. Iblis received his power to whisper and mislead as a result of his excellent worship when he was Azazil. There is only one source of power – Truth. What and how people utilize it is a part of their free will and what they are questioned about and sent to Heaven and Hell for.
…the original Illuminati, before the name was misappropriated by the West, were actually a group of Arab Sufis from Abbasid Iraq, known as the Ishraqiyyun. They were followers of the venerable Shaykh al-Ishraq or the “Master of Illumination” Shahab ad-Din Yahya as-Suhrawardi. Suhrawardi was a Qadiri, initiated by the venerable Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani and later founder of the first Sufi Order. Suhrawardi’s writings were known as حكمت اشراق Hikmat-i Ishrāq, or the Philosophy of Illumination.
Likewise, the father of Zionism Isaac La Peyrère literally copied the central idea of his most important work, Prae-Adamitae, from the Umayyad era Arab scholar Ibn Wahshiyya. Instead of becoming an idea to motivate Arabs to spread Islam among the non-Arabs, today it is misappropriated and the justification behind Zionist Israel’s barbarism against the Arab Palestinians and the West’s silence towards it.
…Furthermore, the entire tradition of Kabbalistic writings, pamphlets and treatises, ideas and myths were alien to pre-9th century Judaism. According to the earliest Latin writers like Tholuck, from the writing of the Sefer Yetzirah in the 9th century to other Kabbalistic works such as the Sefer Bahir, Sefer ha-Iyyun, the Zohar – all originated from Arabic Sufi philosophical writings from the caliph’s court in Abbasid era Baghdad.
…Prof. Michael McGaha pointed out: “It was no coincidence that the earliest Kabbalistic writings and the work of Ibn Arabi appeared around the same time (late 12th-early 13th-centuries). Jewish refugees from Muslim Spain were breathing new life into the doctrines and imagery developed by the Sufis in Baghdad and later in Andalusia, creating the new system of mysticism known as the Kabbalah.”
Like his predecessor the venerable Shahab ad-Din Yahya as-Suhrawardi, Ibn Arabi was also a Qadiri Sufi and initiated through only one Shaykh back to the venerable Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani.
Today, the essence of these teachings are also misappropriated and instead of bringing people to Ihsan, are leading people to Satanism.
…Although it might be difficult to understand what I am saying here, another major example of misappropriation is the Israeli claim to Masjid Al-Aqsa. It is identified for over 1400 years by Arabs and through archeological evidence as the holy site Arabs believe for the Prophetic Isra Wal Mairaj journey. Hence for over fourteen centuries it has been sanctified by Arabs and Muslims as holy and a site of power. Convinced of its holiness as a result of Arab beliefs, the extremists in Israel wish to mask its reason for relevance and convert it to the site of the holy Temple of Solomon. They want to make it an exclusively Israeli site and hide its Arab connection. Ishmael was born on the land which we refer to today as Palestine. Hashem ibn ‘Abd al-Manaf is buried in Old Gaza. The extremists seek to do the same misappropriation with the Ark of the Covenant which they claim is buried beneath Al-Aqsa. It was passed to the Israelite Prophet Moses by his Ishmaelite father in-law Shuayb (Jethro), the king of Petra…”
