Druze believe he had supernatural abilities, high wisdom and great depth into gnostic secrets and astronomy. And trace his mysterious actions and monkshood into successful attempts of refuting the Islamic tenets. Such as banning a prayer said to lead to God's wrath but nothing happening. And flipping the day and the night for worker hours to make the comparison with what happens in Ramadan and how most Muslims are just flipping day and night in an ultimately meaningless practice. Or pointing out how God is everywhere but Islam dictates directing prayer to the Kaaba which is unnecessary. And that if it is just a method of organization, then the ritual itself is unimportant and not fundamental to prayer or dabiha etc. Which is the crux of the Druze reading... To take conclusions and not abide by literals as mainstream religion was sent down to naive worshipers who needed pointless instructions, rules and concepts such as heaven and hell or demons and angels. While God is far beyond that simplified model.What gives you confidence in al-Hakem that he was "ma'soom"?
