    I was wondering this the other day. Its like certain religions require you to believe most of the premises of another religion, and since Islam shares alot with Christianity in this regard, I was wondering if there are those that have taken to "the other side" via the vein of Islam?

    Discuss.

    Yes.

    The "Devil" of Islam is called Iblis, and some folks find "him" worthy of worship.

    Evil tends to be represented in every religion. It exists in the world and it would seem silly to represent all that is holy and good without recognising the bad. Some people go to religion for moral guidance, and that means acknowledging evil is necessary.

    As such, where these religions deify evil there will no doubt be people who see these beings as worthy of worship also. These people may believe in a God, but question their motives and so look to alternatives within that religion.

    Also, Iblis is a badass name.

    Damn beat me to it. I was gonna say Americans. :lol:

    Honestly I have no clue, but from talking with known Satanists on this site, I don't think so. Reason being is that Satanists (like LaVayan satanists) are pretty much atheists, but recognize the human need for rituals and the like, so they partake in them. But I've yet to meet a Satanist that ACTUALLY believes in satan, or any other deity for that matter.

    No, you cant be a Muslim satanist. Why? Because....

    The word 'Islam' in Arabic means peace and submission. The peace refers to that within each person and between human beings (and actually also between man and all other creation), whereas submission refers to the destruction of the ego in submission to the being that originated the Universe. In Islam, this being characterises himself in many ways, but one of the key ways is as 'Nur' or light.

    With regards Satan, known as 'shaytan' in Arabic - he is mentioned in the Qur'an as a being from among the Jinn (Arabic word which can include a wide array of things from certain bacteria to certain types of human beings, and also potentially other species of creation which are not known to us), and not from among the Angels as Christian mythology surmises, since Angels are believed to be incapable of rebelling against God. However, whilst this being is referred to as a single entity his only real trait is the absence of light or divinity and according to Islam he exists within the nature of all men, dissuading them from the 'straight path', in other words the path of peace and submission to God. When a person reaches the very height of rebellion under the influence of this intrinsic Satan, he is labelled in the Qur'an as Iblis. Thus Iblis and Satan are actually two different entities, one being the intrinsic rebelliousness that all human beings have turning them away from peace and submission, the other (Iblis) being an actual individual who has reached the pinnacle of evil.

    Thus according to Islam, evil (ie. darkness, misguidance, satanic things etc) are simply the absence of light and so it would be difficult for a person who understood these teachings to try and worship something that was simply the absence of something else. In a sense, any person not submitting themselves to God and creating peace is actually worshipping their own internal Satan or ego, but it is not possible from an Islamic point of view to worship Satan since he is not an external permeating entity like light.

    Huh. That's really interesting. It actually sounds startlingly similar to some of the concepts behind LaVeyan Satanism.

    Semirelated, but if you want to read up on something interesting that often gets unfairly branded as "satanism" in the middle east, read up about the beliefs of the Yazidi of northern Iraq.

    The nutshell is they believe that after God created the world, he left it in the care of seven holy beings, chief amongst which was Malek Taus, who is also known as Shaytan, which as was pointed out is the Muslim word for Satan. His story is also similar to the biblical Satan, though instead of rebelling against God, the Yazidis revere him for rebelling against Adam and don't see him as an evil figure at all.

    I didn't know there was a difference between a christian satanist, a jewish satanist, and a muslim satanist.
    If I'm right, it would all be based around the same concept of what is considered satan. The Torah, the Bible, and the Qur'an are both nearly the same in their explanation of evil's creation (correct me if I'm wrong.). So really, there is no such thing as a "Muslim Satanist".
    If you're a satanist, you're a satanist.

    I think most of us here are pretty open minded so we can share our religious knowledge and feelings in an environment where we know none of us are going to get penalised for it. Which is awesome IMHO.








    I also like to think of this forum like a religious entity. Chris created it and buggered off, we have a group of disciples (mods) constantly preaching the rules.....









    .....and Stealth is Satan :lol:

    ^ we have a few "demons" that try to continue on in Stealth's work, but I think he has it well in hand on his own. :lol:

    While there may be a couple of subjects that will cause us to go apeshit at each other, on the whole I pretty much see the forum on the whole as cool and laid back. :yesway:

    re grand moff tim:
    as i understand it, i believe the only surviving sect (maybe i'm wrong) of gnosticism is in that area

    as gnosticism has tended to be demonized throughout history,i was wondering if this sect would be the Yazidi(sp)?

    You can't be a Christian Satanist..or a Jewish Satanist..a Wiccan Satanist or anything of the sort. Satanism makes you your own god, and as an Atheist religion, rules out all supernatural higher powers. "Theistic Satanists", or devil worshippers, are seen as "inverted Christians", thus aren't Satanists

    ???

    Who cares? You can be whatever you want and call it whatever you want. Other folks just might not agree. But with religion that seems to come w the territory no matter what you choose.

    I agree to an extent. If you have a religion with pretty certain guidelines..you can alter it and label it the same thing, but it just isn't. That's the issue I have with so many Crosstitutes who call themselves Christian, yet seemed to have created their own version of the rules to suit their needs.

    If I were to reform my original question in light of this, it would be to ask if there are "inverted Muslims".

    One must ask one's self, how is a religion truly atheist if you are the god?

    Bc man is not god. You are god in the sense that there is no power above your will. Not literal.
