There is an entire chapter in the Koran on “Jinn” spirits and a Muslim collection of writing called the Hadith indicates that Mohammad was in communication with these spirits. Does this occult aspect answer questions about the mysterious force that seems to surround Muslims and also account for what is often a fierce, violent anger?
There is a book called As Easy as Drinking Water, by Afshin Javid, a devout Muslim from Iran. Javid describes how he used “jinn” (spirits) to attack his enemies, in effect, how his religion of Islam taught him to hurl occult curses on those he hated.
Javid states, “Westerners are at least casually familiar with the notion of contacting the supernatural realm by means of séances, meditative techniques, Ouija boards, and magical spells,” he writes.
“The concept of interaction with the spirit realm is present and, in fact, well-known in Islam. Muslims believe in the existence of a parallel race of spirit beings referred to as the Jinn, from which the English word ‘Genie’ is derived.
The Jinn are not considered equivalent to angels and demons but are lesser spirit beings. The Koran frequently discusses the Jinn, indicating they are made from fire, as opposed to human, who are formed from clay.
The Koran also has many verses in which Mohammad addresses the Jinn directly with exhortations beginning, ‘O you assembly of Jinns and men.’ Muslims believe that the Jinn, like us, have the choice to be religious or not and can decide, therefore, to be Muslim or not.”
Javid states, “My contact with the Jinn occurred as a direct result of meditation in the scriptures of the Koran. To be more specific, in the Koran there are certain Surahs which begin with sets of Arabic letters having no apparent meaning. These are referred to as the ‘Secrets’ or the ‘Mysterious Letters’ of the Koran. I had begun meditative chanting of the Secrets of the Koran some time earlier, and by this means I had developed frequent communication with the Jinn. I had learned the practice of calling on them in order to make things happen either for a favor for me or a friend, or payback to an enemy for wrong done to me.”
Heeding Islamic teachings, Javid called on the Jinn to hurt others. Speaking of a guard he hated, Javid writes, “I prayed a curse on him as I summoned all of my contempt, all of my hatred, all of my violent thoughts, and all of my disgust for this pagan. I gathered all the darkness, all the blackness, and all the poison I could summon into a curse, drew my gaze toward him, fixed my eyes on his, took a deep breath, and blew all that spiritual venom across the room like a spitting cobra.
“Suddenly, a look of terror crossed his face. He grabbed his throat and began gasping for air. I maintained eye contact with him and let him suffer for a while. He looked up and flipped his head back and forth as if he were trying to shake himself free. I finally withdrew the prayer and he was able to breathe again. He knew I had been given powers from another realm, and he ran down the hall and never mocked me again. I am not exaggerating when I say that those whom I cursed would, within days, have an accident or get sick. “These powers were obtained by the chanting, recitation, and meditation on the scripture of the Koran alone and from no other book, teaching, or coaching.”
Javid states he would communicate with the Jinn “conversationally” and heard their audible voices when the spirits entered his room (requesting recitation of the Koran). They rewarded him with psychic powers (the ability to tell what others were doing in other rooms). It is not fair to say that all or even most Muslims go to this extent. And indeed, there are good people in all religions (and we need to focus on that goodness). Javid was such a devout Muslim that he fasted for weeks at a time.
“Robert James Woolsey, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, told a conference in Washington recently that America needs to realize that it’s “at war” with those who would spread Islamic, or Shariah, law, imposing such beliefs on Christians, an especially daunting possibility when one reckons the occultism that might also be imposed (along with persecution, which already is rampant).
We can’t ignore occult aspects from which they need deliverance. The admissions are not insignificant when we consider the rapid growth of Islam and the widespread hatred among many Muslims of the West. Some have even feared that Islam may one day spawn an “anti-christ.”
