The history of the messengers: Moses

The killing of the sons of Mosesnation

The children of Israel carefully considered what had been said among themselves, generation after another, about Prophet Abraham (pbuh): that from his descendants there would emerge a boy who would cause the fall of the king of Egypt. This news was so well-known among the children of Israel that it reached the Pharaoh, after being mentioned to him by some of his princes. As a result and a precautionary measure, Pharaoh ordered that the sons of the children of Israel be killed to prevent such a boy from ever existing. Under the rule of Pharaoh, the children of Israel lived in oppression and injustice. {Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidûn (i.e. those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants, etc.).{ (Al-Qasas:4)

Allah wanted to bless the besieged children of Israel. 5. And We wished to do a favour to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors, 6. And to establish them in the land, and We let Fir’aun (Pharaoh) and Hâmân and their hosts receive from them that which they feared.(Al-Qasas:5-6)

The story of his birth and upbringing

Pharaoh was extremely careful in ensuring that Moses would not be born, to the extent that he ordered his minions and midwives to circulate and ask pregnant women about their due dates; so the moment a male was born, he was immediately slaughtered by his butchers. However Allah wanted to show Pharaoh, Haman and their soldiers that which they feared, and when the mother of Moses gave birth to him, she knew she had to dispose of him or he would be slaughtered. {And We inspired the mother of Mûsa (Moses), (saying): “Suckle him [Mûsa (Moses)], but when you fear for him, then cast him into the river and fear not, nor grieve. Verily! We shall bring him back to you, and shall make him one of (Our) Messengers.”}(Al-Qasas:7)

      Selamün Aleyküm my Muslim brothers and sisters.
      I'm a 37 years old Swiss Muslim and have encountered something very interesting, I would like to discuss further with knowledgeable Muslims.
      It’s concerning the use of psychedelics in Islamic cultures or regions. Please acknowledge that this thread is only about the use of psychedelics and hallucinogens, like DMT, LSD and mushrooms. This thread it not about the use of cannabis, cocaine or any other drug.
      After understanding quantum physics and that everything is energy and connected, I encountered DMT (Ayahuasca) and psychedelics and have decided to dip deeper in this rabbit hole and try it myself. I haven’t done it yet I must say. :)
      However, in course of my preparations, I've came across following points I want to highlight: 
      Sufi founder, Rumi Mevlana is well known to have used psychedelics, namely arundo dorax (DMT) together with Syrian rue (as MAOI):

      https://books.google.ch/books?id=D5woDwAAQBAJ&pg=PT60&lpg=PT60&dq=mevlana+psychedelic&source=bl&ots=hElMfo3r2l&sig=ACfU3U1X_sXvvU3ooj_gZccPshRbXlhuIQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiSqoKJqMrpAhXyxaYKHWpaCCsQ6AEwDXoECAkQAQ#v=onepage&q=mevlana%20psychedelic&f=false

      1. In 2014 Grand Ayatollah Rohani issued a fatwa, which labels psychedelics used in the right setting, with the right intention and under expert supervision as Halal:

      https://psychedelictimes.com/irans-top-religious-leader-approves-therapeutic-use-psychedelics/

      After researching this further, I came across this article, which shows hints that psychedelics have deep roots in Islamic culture, at least in Iran and Turkey, I know of. 
      Please have a look at the similarities between DMT visions and Islamic Art. As you all know, there are no coincidences:

      https://www.samwoolfe.com/2018/10/the-psychedelic-nature-of-islamic-art-and-architecture.html

       
      To conclude, Psychedelics have been used since centuries in all regions of the world, including the Muslim part of the world. DMT is an endogen neurotransmitter, which our brain and that of all living beings produce by itself. In fact, total darkness is enough for our brain to release DMT, which again is linked to experiencing the oneness of Allah (swt).  
      Could that be a hint why all the prophets, including our beloved Hz. Muhammad (sav), had their mystical experiences in a cave (in total darkness)? 

      DMT and psychedelics and its effect on personal enlightenment and the understanding of beautiful nature and creation of Allah (swt) is, in my opinion, one of humankind's best kept secrets :)

      May Allah bless all true seekers.

      Todo el mundo busca la felicidad, pero ¿Dónde está el camino?
      Todo ser humano sobre la faz del planeta anhela la felicidad. A pesar de sus diferentes tendencias, etnias, sus trasfondos y sus principios, sus fines y sus metas… todos coinciden en un único objetivo: se trata de la búsqueda de la felicidad y la tranquilidad.
      Si preguntásemos a alguien: ¿Por qué haces esto o lo otro? Diría: Quiero ser feliz. Y poco importa si dice alguna expresión equivalente o lo dice literalmente, si lo dice implícita o explícitamente
      Así que ¿qué es la felicidad? ¿Y cómo alcanzarla?
      La felicidad es la sensación continua de gozo, tranquilidad, liberalidad y alegría. Dicho sentimiento alegre resulta de experimentar tres cosas: la bondad en uno mismo, la bondad de la vida, y la bondad en el destino.
