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):
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:
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 :)
