1. All of the major religions are talked about, excerpted, explained by the instructors and thank you so much for that. But I feel sad that Quran or Islamic scriptures or Mohammed are very rarely quoted. I have no bias for islam although being from such family, but I would like to understand Quran/Teacher Mohammed from the perspective of Gnosis.

There are so many pseudo teachers of hadiths and islam out there, a genuine true explanation is missing in the world.

Request the instructors to please give some audio lectures on Quran.

Thank you so much for what you all are doing.

2. Why do muslims say peace be upon him after Allah or Mohammed's name? I noticed that instructor Almustafa also does this although s/he most of the times does not use such suffix for other teachers' names like SAW, Jesus, Moses etc etc.

Although being part of muslim family, I never understood why we use that phrase after the name of the Supreme God or Supreme Teacher Mohammed and I never adhered to that dogma.

They have already attained peace or in perpetual peace! I have asked around and have either gotten dogmatic answers or scolding or slaps :-) PBUH should be used for ignorants like us, is it not?

The same question I have for "Hallowed be thy name" in Lord's prayer. This is my favorite prayer and it unfolds deeper meanings whenever I use it. It has been the most helpful tool for me when I am bickering in my head due to some egos. But I never understood why do we say "Hallowed be thy name" for Father whose name is already hallowed.

1. Everything we do for the sake of humanity is by the will of divinity. If the White Lodge wants us to unveil Islam, we will do so. God-willing!

2. The reason why the disciples of the Muslim Ray state, "peace and blessings be upon him" or "upon him be peace" due to the following teaching from Al-Risalah: Principles of Sufism by Al-Qushayri:
The master Abu 'Ali ad-Daqqaq (may God grant him mercy) said, "One of the signs of gnosis is the attainment of awe. For one whose gnosis increases, awe of God increases." He also stated, "Gnosis brings about utter tranquility to the heart, just as knowledge brings about peacefulness. So for one whose gnosis increases, tranquility increases."
Peace is the immortal substance of the Absolute. The Lord is exalted in us through how much cognizance, knowledge and understanding we have of the eternal nature of the Being, Who is peace and abundance.

Therefore, the more knowledge of divinity we have, the more peace we experience. Therefore, we invite all of humanity towards the straight path of peace, to know one's Lord intimately.

Masters who enter into the Absolute acquire higher degrees of self-knowledge, and therefore higher attainments of peace. This is why we state "peace and blessings be upon him" even towards Masters who self-realized, since now they are working towards greater exaltation in the Being.

The Being is glorified through the human soul, and the human soul is glorified by the Being. Hallowed by thy name, O Lord!
God Most High says, "They have not estimated God as He deserves to be estimated" (6:91). It is written in commentaries on this verse that it means "They have not known God as He deserves to be known." -Al-Risalah: Principles of Sufism by Al-Qushayri
By knowing the Being, we glorify the Being, and the Being glorifies and hallows His own name.

I personally use the axiom "peace and blessings be upon him" towards any Prophet, including Samael Aun Weor. However, sometimes I reserve that saying for the sake of Muslims who do not know that Samael Aun Weor is the prophet for the Aryan Root Race, since many orthodox fanatics think that there are no other prophets after Muhammad.

It is true that there were no other Semitic prophets after Muhammad. However, our present Aryan Root Race, which stemmed from the Shemites of Atlantis, is now governed and directed by the Angel Samael and His Prophet / Bodhisattva Samael Aun Weor!

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
