Abdul Alhazred is the wrong translation , as his name was Ahmed Abdallah Al Yamani. Some called him Ahmed al sorry. Al The more proper Arabic form might be Abd al-Hazred , The word Abdul means the servant . Hadharat or hazrat means his excellency , now this can be God, a human figure such as a prophet of God or an Imam, or a demon like the Jinn.
In his case he was truly devoted Sufi, and devoted to the knowledge of demons and Jinn, he knows that his action was against all religion , and he could be killed for seeking this forbidding knowledge. So his name means exactly the servent of the JINN. or simply Abdul Hazred.
By serving the Jinn he will gain some knowledge and secrets but it came at a cost as Hazred is not one of the 99 Names of God. In Arabic texts, his name has appeared as Abdullah al-Hazard (عبدالله الحظرد).
The term “Mad Arab” is also wrong , the west always like to make any Arabic who seek these kind of knowledge mad or crazy, it is very wrong and hateful to ward other people. The translation of mad also is wrong, and that make those people in the west who used such name an idiots and un -professional. He was known as Majthoob means attracted to and pulled to higher power, while the word Majnun in Arabic means Crazy.
So he was not crazy ( majnun) but majthoob attracted to higher power and knowledge . This is the truth about him , and of course the westerns writers stole so many from his book and history and mutated ,altered it and fake it then discredited him so they can gain credits and that it self is wrong and unprofessional.
He was a poet , philosopher, mathematician, theologian, and astronomer of Sanaá, in Yemen, who is said to have flourished during the period of the Ommiad caliphs, circa 700 A.D. He visited the ruins of Babylon and the subterranean secrets of Memphis and spent ten years alone in the great southern desert of Arabia — the Roba el Khaliyeh or “Empty quarter” of the ancients — and “Dahna” or “Crimson” desert of the modern Arabs, which is held to be inhabited by protective evil spirits and monsters of death.
Of this desert many strange and unbelievable marvels are told by those who pretend to have penetrated it. In his last years Alhazred dwelt in Damascus.
In 730, while still living in Damascus, Alhazred wrote so many tails and gathered all his information about the jinn and what they told him and taught him , and he authored in Arabic a book of ultimate evil, al Azif, which would later become known as the Necronomicon, or the book of the dead .The word ALAZIF in Arabic mean the sound of the Jinn in the desert at night. So you can see the westerns scholars stole and miss treated him and wrongly translated everything.
He was berried same city of the prophet Saleh bin hood in Oman.
Those who have any dealings with the Necronomicon usually come to an unpleasant end, and Alhazred was no exception. According to the account: I my self have this book and other books that I keep locked with protective seals and prayers and even though I had many bad experience with it.
“Of his final death or disappearance (738 A.D.) many terrible and conflicting things are told. He is said by Ibn Khallikan the great Arabic historian (13th century biographer) to have been seized by an invisible monster in broad daylight and burned him ,devoured horribly before a large number of fright-frozen witnesses. Of his madness many things are told. He was showing some followers and Sufi people how to bring about one of the powerful demon and summoned him , but it was his end as something went wrong with the method.
He claimed to have seen fabulous irema that al Emad city the one that the Quran mentioned , or City of Pillars, and to have found beneath the ruins of a certain nameless desert town the shocking annals and secrets of a race older than mankind. He was only a Sufi and a man seeking the knowledge of the Jinn , worshipping unknown entities whom he called The Jinn Yog-Sothoth , and other in the name of Cthulhu . He knows so many names of demons and Jinn, red the kabbalah and the torah, and study the numerology and astrology and the using of magic symbols and squares.
According to another historian, he was taken a life by the Jinn front of so many witness in 731 A.D. He was captured and taken by the Jinn , by the demon he was trying to summon , the demon flow away with him. Alhazred’s burial site, in city called Salalah, Oman, and crossed the border into Yemen.
The witness mentioned that Alhazred was kidnapped by the demon in Damascus and brought to the Nameless City, where he had earlier studied and learned some of the Necronomicon’s secrets. As punishment for his betrayal of their secrets, Alhazred was tortured. Then they blinded him and severed his tongue, and finally executed him. The entrance to the chamber warned against disturbing him.
Though only rugs, bones and dust remained of Alhazred, the sarcophagus also contained an incomplete personal copy of the Necronomicon, written in the Arabic alphabet.
Some said his real name is Khalid ibn Yazhid , also known simply as Hali, using a made up name from his youth. Hali, is the author of the Kitab Al-Hikmah Al-Najmiyya later translated as Liber Stella Sapiente or Hali’s Booke of the Wisdom of the Stars. Hali was killed by invisible djinns while he was trying to summon the Jinn. But I think this is wrong and the first story is more known in the Arabic world, as in that time so many Sufi were trying to communicate with the Jinn.
Now how about the Nordic magic.
Runes are derived from ancient languages and mean something hidden or secret.
It also has a long history as being used in an ancient form of divination, often being associated with witchcraft and magic! Like the tarot cards, people have used them for fortune-telling and gaining insight into the future. The bible and the Quran consider these as act of evil and sin, any fortune telling is lie and fabrication of the devil
This history begins in the Germanic and Nordic tribes of northern Europe, Scandinavia and Britain. But, there is no official source showing how they came into existence.
There are three types of runic alphabets, the most common of which is the Elder Futhark. This alphabet has 24 letters. Secondly, is the younger Futhark which has only 16 characters? Old Latin inscriptions are believed to have inspired the letters, and runic inscriptions can be found on stones, jewelry, and other artefacts dating back to the third century AD!
A runes set consists of letters of the runic alphabet. Stones, wood, and other materials are carved with these designs. Each letter represents different things that have to be interpreted by the reader.
The first runic alphabet translates to “cattle “in psychic terms, which means wealth. This means they prompt you to use your natural intuition to get advice from the spiritual world.
However, some argue that the early Germanic tribes did not believe it was help from the Gods. Instead, people believed that subconscious minds would work on deciphering the right answer to your queries.
As well as using the runes set to do psychic reading, one can also use the runes alphabet for manifestation by writing out the first letter or carrying it around with you as a good luck charm.
As in kabbalah the Hebrew mystic reading and the Islamic Sufism who believe that each letter have a secret meaning and an equal number, and each number have an equal letter and if you assembled these letters and numbers you will have the key to communicate with entities as it was used with Shams Almaref book by Ahmed bin Ali Alboni the Egyptian scholar 800 years ago, and before that by Ahmed al sorry the Author of ALAZIF BOOK OF THE DEAD- The Necronomicon.
In the rich and colorful Norse Mythology, Odin was the principal God in ancient Scandinavian and was believed to have established the runic alphabet. In reality he was one of the demons who helped those cultures just like many demons who helped the Indians, the Babylonians and the Sumerians. The story of king nimrod of Babylonia and the deal with the devil is the famous one.
It is believed that Odin learned to decipher the symbols after hanging himself from the tree of life for 9 days and 9 nights it represented the 24 ways to get into the afterlife, known as Valhalla.
He did this to prove he was worthy of knowing the secrets of the magic runes. An additional belief about Odin is that he only had one eye, as he sacrificed the other for wisdom. In reality he lost his eye to a stronger wiser demon to gain knowledge.
