Abraham Maimonides – The Jewish Sufi

Jun 29, 2010 Daniel Gigi


How Islamic mysticism, known as Sufism, entered Jewish practice and helped formulate the practices of the later Kabbalists.

Abraham Maimuni, as he is called, was the only son, and heir, of the illustrious leader of the generation Moses Maimonides. He was born in 1186 when his father was 47 years old, and succeeded him as Rayyis Al-Yahud, head of Egyptian Jewry, after his death in 1204. This fact, namely his appointment to practically the most prestigious position of his day at the young age of just 18, is testament to his scholarly and religious standing.

In 1213 the honorific title of Nagid was conferred upon him. He served as Nagid for the majority of his adult life, and whilst his memory has been overshadowed by the contribution of his father, Abraham certainly played a significant role in the formation of modern Judaism and mysticism.

Abraham and Jewish Sufism

In medieval Egypt, within a peaceful and accepting society, Islamic mysticism, which has often been fated to the same intolerance as other faiths even under Islamic rule and to this day, was able to flourish and expand its influence. This influence even extended beyond Islam to other religions, in this instance to Judaism.

I believe that this is a shameful aspect of religion.

When monkeys are digging that doesn't make sense..


That's what makes the story a lie..

Comment by Mo Trauen on February 6, 2011 at 9:32am
The monkey stoning story is obviously a lie.  People have spent their lives studying monkeys and have never reported anything like that.  I seem to remember reading of monkeys being forced to leave their troop on occasion and even murdered, but digging a pit, burying them in it, and then stoning them?  That's just made up to try to justify behavior that is barbaric.

The one who made that video said, this story is not for fun,,,,,

I say, it is a humorous story...

Just for gags :d

 

The monkey stoning in Islam-Sahih Al bukhari -No.3849

I was in Yemen tending the sheep of my people up upon an elevation. A male monkey came with a female and laid his head on her hand. Then a smaller monkey came and beckoned towards her, so she gently slipped her hand out from under the cheek of the first monkey and followed him. He mated with her while I looked on. Then she returned and gently tried to slip her hand back under the cheek of the first monkey, but he woke up suddenly, smelled her, and cried out.

Then the monkeys gathered round and he began screaming hile pointing towards her with his hand. The monkeys went all about and came back with that monkey that I recognized. They dug a pit for the two of them and stoned them both. So I had witnessed stoning being carried out by other than Adam’s descendants.
