Nephilium, demons, jinn-human hybrid


I have 2 questions:

1# What are nephilium, aliens, vampires. or Illuminati created this myth or these are Jewish & Christian beliefs??? E.g., christian beliefs that angels too fall..

2# Are jinn-human hybrid exist??

I want to know that are these things part of dajjalic fitna?



To begin with, it must be acknowledged that the Judaic and Christian understandings of cosmology and ancient history – the subjects of your inquiry – are in remarkable accord with that of Islam. As far as your question concerning the union of human and jinn is concerned, this is, of course, a possibility recognized by the tradition of Islam; but as Shaykh `Abdul-Wahid Yahya points out in connection with the union of human and nagini in India, examples of families descended from such a union are likewise to be found in Christian Europe, and he mentions particularly the Jagellons of Poland and the French Lusignans.

Concerning the matter of “fallen angels,” however, Islam alone is clear, since only Islam illuminates the three worlds of angels, humanity, and the jinn. Given the need for illumination especially when delving into matters of the occult, your use of the term “Illuminati” should be questioned. I presume you are making reference to the nefarious Bavarian Illuminati of the 18th century who co-opted the organizational structure of Freemasonry in a subversion of the latter’s purpose. It is better to recognize such groups as examples of an “anti-Illuminati.” Indeed, Allah Almighty very specifically describes his awliya as illuminated:

{Allah is the protecting Friend of those who believe. He bringeth them out of darkness into light. As for those who disbelieve, their patrons are the false. They bring them out of light into darkness} (Surat al-Baqara, 2:257).

Who, then, are truly to be called illuminati?

To return to your inquiry, the leader of the false and fallen is of course Iblis, concerning whom the Holy Qur’an is clear:

{And remember when We said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam, and they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He was of the Jinn, so he rebelled against his Lord’s command. Will ye choose him and his seed for your protecting friends instead of Me, when they are an enemy unto you?...} (Surat al-Kahf, 18:50)

The accounts of Iblis among the angels are well known; however, it is the revelation that he is a jinn that concerns us here, and frees us from confusion. Angels are by their nature incapable of falling by rebellion. Contrary to what is implied by your mentioning of the Nephilim in this context, Orthodox Judaism and Christianity understand the latter term to identify simply rebellious giants among humankind, and this seems to accord with the term jabbarin that appears in the Holy Qur’an in reference to them.

Those who follow the falsehood of Iblis and oppress humanity may rightly be called devils, and devils are the “Awliya of Shaytan.” Do not imagine that only jinn may become devils; in the words of Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani, may Allah sanctify his secret: “The Devil, no matter how many people exist on earth, hopes to turn each and every one of them into devils.” Devils are not the wardens of hellfire; angels are. Since you mention vampires – surely to be counted amongst the Awliya of Shaytan – it is remarkable to consider the historical figure of Dracula: whereas popular culture identifies him as the vampire par excellence based on little historical evidence, his ruthless and bloodthirsty opposition to the Ottomans nevertheless betrays his identity as a devil in any case, especially since the patrons of the Ottoman state were the Awliya of the Merciful, as was mentioned in my last post. On the other hand, do not imagine that the true awliya are only from humankind, since Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani has also mentioned that the saintly ranks of the Nuqaba at least include many kings of the jinn.

If it is offered that the story of the angels Harut and Marut provides an Islamic example of the heresy to which your inquiry refers, it must be understood that the fall of these angels was rather the consequence of the human nature with which they were burdened. This nature could not be theirs, except that it was specially given as a Divine lesson, and so their fall does not relate to angelic nature, but is rather in spite of it (please see Angels Unveiled by Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani for the relevant account). It is of interest, however, to recall the presence of Harut and Marut in certain Islamic accounts of the ascension of Idris or Enoch, peace be upon him. After all, the sometimes-biblical Book of Enoch relates to this ascension even while insisting upon the fall of angels; but it is very possible that the present form of this book simply presents a flawed recollection – subsequently corrected in the light of Islam – of Harut and Marut, even while retaining certain significant elements, such as the angels’ sexual temptation. Wa Allahu `Alam.

The importance of Islam’s distinguishing the natures of the angels and jinn must be emphasized, since it helps dispel the pervasive error of confusing the spiritual and psychic domains to which the angels and jinn correspond. Of course, since both the spiritual and psychic are superior to the physical, “supernatural powers” or “Enochian communications” are not necessarily evidence of spirituality. The jinn are created of fire, and the powers of technology arise from the “fire” of electricity; in fact, as I have already quoted in an earlier post, “The Anti Christ depends fully on technology with the aim of taking away all spirituality.” Beyond this darkness is the spiritual realm of the angels who are created of light; yet this degree likewise belongs to the illuminated awliya who rise rather than fall, as is indicated in the last verses of the Chapter of the Dawn:

{But ah! Thou soul at peace! Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure! Enter thou among My bond-creatures! Enter thou My Garden!}

These psychic and spiritual degrees may also be understood in terms of sacred geography. The cosmic mountain of Qaf encircles the world of humanity, and is traditionally understood to be the abode of jinn, whereas spiritual beings are understood to come from “behind” Qaf mountain. The habits of the jinn are described in the Qur’anic Chapter named for them, and the starry weapons wielded by spiritual beings to limit their location are mentioned there and elsewhere in the Holy Qur’an. Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani specifically associates the saintly ranks of the Budala, Nujaba, Nuqaba, Awtad, and Akhyar with the “region” behind the mountain.

Finally, the greater cosmic implications of “encircles the world” and “starry weapons” relate to your mention of “aliens,” yet, again, the danger of confusing the psychic and spiritual demands caution. Obviously there is a comparison to be made between the folklore of Faerie and the “little green men” of more materialistic imaginations. The physical behavior of Unidentified Flying Objects is similarly interpreted in technological terms, recalling the relationship of jinn with technology. However, it is the appearance of spheres of light that should not so easily be dismissed. Even though in many times and places such phenomena have been mistrusted as “will-o’-the-wisps,” in a different context luminous spheres have been recognized as signaling the presence of the awliya. Cereologists suggest a link between balls of light and the formation of authentic crop circles, and Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani – may Allah sanctify his secret – once explained that such circles are communications from behind Mount Qaf.

In the time of Moses, peace be upon him, his people were prevented from entering the Promised Land for 40 years because of the fear that all but a very few had of the Nephilim. Sultan ul-awliya Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani – may Allah sanctify his secret – has compared our current historical situation with that previous one, with the Promised Land being now the Royal Kingdom of Jesus Christ on earth, peace be upon him. Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani has had occasions in recent months to reassure his people of the appearance of the saintly ranks that must presage this promised kingdom. When that happens, insha’Allah, all “dajjalic fitna” will vanish like shadows in the light of the sun.
