The Man Who Saw Allah

Last week, two friends who’d come over to smoke hash narrated a hilarious and unbelievable incident to me. We were discussing the effect hallucinogens might have on the deeply religious. We were talking about visions people have at the time of their death, and the topic shifted to how narcotic substances might alter one’s perception of god, religion, spirituality and the universe.

Deftly rolling joints, these guys told me about a young Muslim man who had dedicated his life to Islam. A non-drinker of course, the god-fearing young man liked smoking hashish every day.

It so happened that the group of people he used to get high with decided to play a prank on him. One afternoon, when he was very stoned, they offered him fruit juice spiked with LSD. Now this dude was really baked and obviously had no idea what he was in for – he readily accepted the fresh, chilled juice and sipped on it to soothe his parched throat, dehydrated by the charas.

In some time, his eyes widened as if he were deranged, and he leapt up and announced, “Bhai, Allah dikh rela hai, bhai!

Someone else present at the scene ordered him to stop talking nonsense and asked him if he had lost his mind… no one had seen Allah, so how could he?

But this enlightened fellow was in no mood to listen to anyone else – the chap called his wife up and repeated the same thing – that he had seen Allah, was probably dead and on his way to jannat. Naturally, the poor woman started freaking, but he told her he loved her and their kid and then he just hung up. Maybe, he wanted to get right back to enjoying the hallucinations, still not realizing it was the acid doing that to his brain.

Anyway, this is a very funny and strange story, and I thought I’d share it with you.

I have a lot of Muslim friends who offer me homemade non-vegetarian delicacies on Islamic festivals and other special occasions – I love them and respect their faith, so no need to get offended.

Not like I offered anyone a Breezer or something. Geez.

    I think all Muslims should start drinking. Imagine if Islam made alcohol halal. Life on Earth would be so fucking good. I think the government should provide the entire Muslim population (male) with 180 ml of hard liquor and Muslims all over the world should be forced to drink pitchers of chilled beer. May all Muslim men stroke the beard and guzzle gallons of the cold draught. I too am Muslim but I stroke the beard and can have only 1 pint at a time. Alcohol is halal, sharing it with others is haram. Islam can prosper because of booze. Allah wants a cold one.

      Haraam… not halal.. halal is the Islamic version of kosher, where the method of slaughtering an animal for meat is by exsanguination. Thats what halal is …

    Let the theme of religion, caste, creed, colour disappear without a trace. It’s time to vanquish and vanish them from this earth. It will indeed prove to be a boon. In case, you are wondering, I am not referring to stout beer bellied, Aussie cricketer of yesteryear, David Boon. And for that matter, I am not referring to Mills and Boons either! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The only religion that should ideally and logically exist is humanity. Being Humane is the only feasible thing that will elevate us above the hedonistic existence and above chaos which religion and regional boundaries seem to create, inadvertently. They are unnecessary tools in the hands of select, powerful yet corrupt individuals who blatantly use it against one another.

    It’s a free world and every one inhabiting this planet is free to live the way he wants. But it should be humane way of coexistence. There’s more to explore but this boundaries are a deterrence. Once they are eliminated, everything will change for better.

    Live life on your own terms, the way you want. It’s a free world after all. ๐Ÿ™‚
