4. New religion for a new era

by Omar K Grefez

Humans who wish to understand fast for 28 days. A fast of no meat, no tobacco, animal products <4% of food energy, no excessive sugar, sleep fully and wake before 6 hours before solar noon or before sunrise, no excessive spending, no excessive traveling especially by air and by automobile. Then continue the fast for 14 more days and reflect on ALHURUF.

***Day 29 & Day 36***

2:1 Alif Lam Mim

Alif is Aluza who is power especially health, intelligence, life, reproduction, technology & wisdom. Alif is power acting rightly, power directed towards lam. The position of alif is 1 and the value of alif is 1. Lam is Alat who is purpose which is consciousness. Lam is like Satchitananda, but it is a goal not a reality. So perhaps more like chitananda or asatchitananda. The position of lam is 12 and the value of lam is 30. Mim is Manat who is death and decay which are the end of all things. The position of mim is 13 considered unlucky by many. The value of mim is 40 approximately the years between maturity (18) and old age (60) for a human.

Alif lam mim is the classical trinity.

3:1 Alif Lam Mim

Alif lam mim is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as 2:1.

***Day 30 & Day 37***

7:1 Alif Lam Mim Sad

Sad is imperfection primarily and unpredictability secondly. So it is reality more generally. "Sād" is like "sæd" and sadness is part of reality. Sad is not evil, it is good mixed with some bad. The position of sad is 18 which is חי or life, and life in reality is imperfect. The value of sad is 90 which is near to but not 100.

Alif lam mim sad is the realistic trinity. Here mim and sad are one, death and decay being a part of imperfect reality.

10:1 Alif Lam Ra

Ra is the sun like in the ancient Egyptian religion. The sun is the source of energy for earth. More generally ra is the awe inspiring aspects of reality. A bird with the sun is a symbol of ra. The position of ra is 20. The value of ra is 200. 200 is the distance to the sun relative to the radius of the sun. 1/200 days is the time for light to travel this distance.


Alif lam ra is the optimistic trinity.

11:1 Alif Lam Ra
12:1 Alif Lam Ra

Alif lam ra is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as 10:1.

13:1 Alif Lam Mim Ra

Alif, lam, mim and ra are repeated for emphasis but with same meanings as in 2:1 and 10:1.

14:1 Alif Lam Ra
15:1 Alif Lam Ra

Alif lam ra is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as 10:1.

***Day 31 & Day 38***

19:1 Kaf Ha Ya Ain Sad

Kaf is one hand, Ha is the head, Ya is the other hand, Ain is one leg, Sad is the other leg and imperfection. Kaf ha ya ain sad together mean human. Kaf ha ya ain sad is said at the birth of a child. Placed near a story about Jesus, they mean that Jesus was human and not more than human and imperfect like all humans. Imperfection is part of a human more so than his leg. Those who ascribe infallibility to a human are in serious error!

20:1 Ta Ha

Ta is the beast 666 which is the Roman Empire specifically and any hegemon or empire more generally. The US federal government is the new Roman Empire. The US federal government coercively promotes an unsustainable system. The correct system is local sovereignty of compact geographically sensible regions, regions that minimize spillover, regions with defensible borders, regions between 490000 and 1960000 square kilometers. Ta is a government expanded beyond these limits such as the Russian Federation, People's Republic of China and US federal government. As in 19:1 ha is head.

Ta ha means head of the beast which is the Roman Emperor specifically or any autocrat more generally. Autocracy is the most dangerous form of government, and an autocratic empire is especially dangerous. The US government is not yet an autocracy, and the Americans value Bill of Rights freedoms. These are the two great mitigating factors.

According to Abdul Qadir Jilani ta is the sultanate. According to Hamiduddin Farahi ta is snake or serpent.

***Day 32 & Day 39***

26:1 Ta Sin Mim

Ta is the beast 666 as in 20:1. Sin is Gog and Magog which is a stereotype of the nomads of central Eurasia. These peoples were especially capable in horse riding which gave them a military advantage over other peoples. So they acquired a reputation for violent warfare for imperialism, raiding and enslaving. More generally sin is any excessive violence. "Sīn" sounds like "sin", and excessive violence is among the worst sins. As in 2:1 mim is death and decay.

Ta sin mim is the negative trinity. Ta and sin hasten mim.

27:1 Ta Sin

Ta and sin are repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as in 26:1.

28:1 Ta Sin Mim

Ta sin mim is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as in 26:1.

29:1 Alif Lam Mim
30:1 Alif Lam Mim
31:1 Alif Lam Mim
32:1 Alif Lam Mim

Alif lam mim is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as 2:1.

36:1 Ya Sin

Ya is a hand as in 19:1. Sin is excessive violence as in 26:1.

Ya sin means a technology, such as nuclear technology, capable of extreme violence or conquest. It is a warning to remain vigilant of these dangers but also vigilant of misguided vigilance.

38:1 Sad

Sad is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as in 7:1. It is listed alone to emphasize its importance.

***Day 33 & Day 40***

40:1 Ḥa Mim

Ḥa is beginning, specifically the beginning of everything or the first cause. Regarding Ḥa there are two stories. According to the first story Ḥa created a very large number of things say 10^12345678912345 things. One of these things is our universe. In this universe consciousness occurred. According to the second story Ḥa created a very large number of things say 10^123456789123456 things. One of these things was a great intelligence. The great intelligence designed our universe so that consciousness could occur. There is disagreement about which of these stories is more likely. Mim is death and decay which are the end of all things. So Ḥa mim is the beginning and the end.

41:1 Ḥa Mim

Ḥa mim is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as 40:1.

42:1-2 Ḥa Mim Ain Sin Qaf

Ḥa mim is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as 40:1. Ain, sin and qaf are things unknown to us that will exist after our deaths. Perhaps they are very different from anything we know.

43:1 Ḥa Mim
44:1 Ḥa Mim
45:1 Ḥa Mim
46:1 Ḥa Mim

Ḥa mim is repeated for emphasis but with the same meaning as 40:1.

***Day 34 & Day 41***

50:1 Qaf

Qaf is heaven on earth. Qaf is not perfection. It is a vastly better possible reality of higher consciousnesses and superhuman bliss. The position of qaf is 19, and the value of qaf is 100. Qaf is listed alone to emphasize its importance.

***Day 35 & Day 42***

68:1 Nun

Nun is the way of religion or the 14 fold path. Grounded in sociological considerations the way of religion is 14 principles that a religion should emphasize in order to be successful and beneficial.

1) Nonviolence. While there are some exceptions, violence against persons is generally wrong. 2) No waste. The greatest waste of our time is excess material consumption leading to pollution and unsustainability. 3) Right social and ethical beliefs. 4) Right communication of beliefs including appropriate proselytization. 5) Right raising of children. 6) Charity, particularly to the church. 7) Diligent study. 8-10) Right healthy habits, right focus and right environment. These are the keys to success. 11) Right rituals such as church attendance. 12) Right identity meaning name, self-identification and maybe clothing that connect to the religion. 13-14) Other right actions and other right thoughts. These last two principles are a guard against extremism.

The position of nun is 14. The value of nun is 50. 50 is half of 100, and implementing the way of religion is halfway to heaven on earth. Nun is listed alone to emphasize its importance.
