Hello,

I was hoping I could get answers about religion. I was raised Muslim but I have to admit that I have been asking myself a lot of questions about relgion. Ever since I started looking into spirituality, I have felt that it makes more sense and gives me answers to questions I have always had that Religion never answered for me. My problem is that I am too afraid (yes fear) to give up my religious beliefs (these being 5 daily prayers and 30 days of fasting) even though I feel no connection to God when I do my daily prayers. I do meditate every day and I find meditation to be a great practice. Can you please help me. You talk about Christianity a lot but almost never about Islam. Thank you!God Bless

Islam is a sacred tradition: in Arabic the word means "submission to the will of God" and relates with salaam (the gospel of "peace"). You do not need to give up your tradition in light of Gnosis. In fact, you will find that Gnosis can transform religion and make it truly living, palpable and divine.

The biggest difficulty in your case might be family who are very orthodox, and who reject everything that does not adhere to a literal interpretation of Islam and Muslim culture (although I do not know you personal circumstances and will not make any assumptions). But this has often been a problem with students I've known who are Muslim and who wish to study the Gnostic Doctrine of the Prophet Samael.

One of our instructors wrote a series of articles on the Muslim faith on our old Gnostic Community forum. I highly recommend you study and practice what it entails. That might help inspire you about your very own, rich and beautiful tradition that you inherited, a religion and teaching founded by a great Master of Tantra: the Prophet Muhammad.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
