so you have confirmed wat we’ve been saying since ever, islam’s allah is sham made up and adapted from the philosophies of many different cultural currents of its time where everyone can see it and describe it as it fits their agenda to further watever goal they want to accomplish wether it is financial or sexual or political or moral or just inhumane actsAccording to a Hadith Qudsi (Sahih Bukhari), the Prophet narrates that Allah says “I am as my servant thinks of me.” This short statement can allow us to better understand the unique nature of Allah vis-à-vis human perception and worship, and how the very concept of Allah differs vastly from other monotheist and deistic traditions.
We should remind our readers that one of Allah’s Names is The Reality. As far as we’re concerned, this Divine Attriubute alone dispels the ignorant notions of Allah being a personal deity of sorts, like the gods of Olympia; or like the other ego-based conceptions of the supernatural like the Christian Jesus, or Jewish Yahweh.
Henceforth, Allah remains The Reality regardless of whether someone is a Christian or atheist, because everyone is always reflecting their own idiosyncratic perceptions of existence onto their outside physical world (and having those same perceptions reflect back). In other words, individuals and groups will believe whatever they believe in, and that essentially reflects (on multiple dimensional levels) on their own exterior reality. For instance, an atheist believes in no God, so they project a world where God is non-existent, and so that’s what they experience on multiple fronts in the form of life content.
The difference in the Muslim’s situation is that he’s obligated to go straight to the Source, and ergo there is no projection of ego-based affirmations, but a reflection of only Allah and His Divine Attributes (the extent to which depends on certain factors). Ergo, a Muslim exists on the very premise of Reality! This is what Al- Ghazali relates to when he says that a Muslim’s mission is to reflect the Light of Allah on creation, for it’s only by disintegration of the ego that man can realize his true and real self, and that is the purity and light of his absolute spirit.
Of course, this isn’t to say that individual Muslims and Muslim sects don’t project their own personal ideas of what the desired path ought to be, which is basically why Islam has branched out into various sects, the main ones being the Sunni and Shiite. Even then, the Sunni and Shiite, regardless of their own interpretations of what the true “Islamic path” should represent, still ultimately refer to the Absolute of all things (Allah).... albeit ego and a personal identity built on thought-patterns over a period of centuries can hinder the process.
Of course, from a metaphysical perceptive at least, the conflict between Sunnis and Shiites (and perhaps between all other divergent groups that have ever clashed with each other in the history of mankind) can be characterized as being rooted in ego; in that both categories are projecting their own conclusions about “what is,” and this “what is” is essentially their own mental interpretations of historical material events! It has nothing to do with Reality itself, but that doesn’t stop people from clinging to their own mental conceptions of what true reality represents....
the “reality” as we know it
