She longed to have rulers and politicians, scientists and occultists of all stripes, but she chose a masters. People This book is mainly known from American movies such as Sorcerer, or Return of the Living Dead.
Let us estimate the information that is collected about the Necronomicon.
Initially, this book was called Al Asif (which can be loosely translated as howling night demons).
It was written by Abdul Alhazred, a mad poet of Sanaa, the Yemeni province.
In the search for truth and enlightenment, he went around the Middle East: two years he lived in the ruins of Babylon, the five years studied and secret underground caves of Memphis, ten years wandered the southern desert of Arabia, which at that time was called the Rub al-Khalil (Empty Quarter), and now It called Dakhna (Dark red desert). According to popular belief, this place is inhabited by evil spirits and evil spirits, which serves to Satan and the angel of death. And there is no other area in the world where there were would be so strange and incredible miracles that people tell just fearful whisper. In this desert Alhazred spent ten years. His last years he spent in Damascus, where around 700 AD wrote his famous book - Al Asif.
In the preface he claimed to have seen fabulous Irem - city of Colonia. And he wrote that he had found in the desert of an unnamed city, which is located under the ruins of the sanctuary from the manuscripts of the knowledge race that preceded humanity. This race of many nations of the East called the Ancients.
Arab mystics believed Irem very important and sacred place. His full name - Irem tightened Imad al. According to an old legend, the city was built at the behest of the genie Shaddad Shah - the ruler of the tribe, which the Jews called the Nephilim (giants). Magrriby (Arab magicians) believe that Irem was located at a different level of reality, and not in the physical space, such as, for example, Damascus, New York or Riga. They were convinced that the tower - a symbol of the old race of creatures and called Irem city of Colonia, that is the city of the Ancients.
Arab tradition has Irem in the Rub al-Khalil. This place is a secret door to the Great Void (that is, the exact equivalent of Kabbalistic DAATH). Magrribskie wizards were there in altered states of consciousness. To do this, they used three methods: drink special drugs, mastered lucid dreaming and practiced the complete absence of thought. There, in this mystical space, they communicated with the inhabitants of the Void, and learned the art of annihilation.
Fana (annihilation) - is the highest achievement in Sufi mysticism and magrribskom. During the annihilation of the magician throws off the shackles of matter and absorb the Void. Further, by means of certain secret techniques he went beyond the Void, and took on an incredible grip on both the realities of beings - over people and over the jinn.
According to Arab myths, Jin once preceded humans on Earth. For some reason, they have moved into a different reality, and it is now frozen, that is located in a latent (sleeping) state. Mage that touched the Void can enter one or more of the jinn in earthly reality. There are many legends that indicate addiction jinn to the female half of humanity. For men - basically, magicians and wizards - Gina became faithful allies.
In the 8th century, the people who had contact with Gene, called Majnun - obsessed with power. All Sufi heroes were Majnun. However, in our time, the word translates as a mad man. That is why the poet Alhazred was considered mad. In the old days all the Arab books were written in verse, including even some orthodox writings, the Koran. But Arab culture claimed that poets inspire creativity jinn. That is why the Prophet Muhammad
