there are two arguements, however. The Hashshashin recieved their name from the drug they used, hashish, or hash, in the modern language. A few people
believed they recieved their name from the founder of the order, Hassan i Sabah.
and for the part of them drugging the potential assassins and having them in a garden, the bit about the vision of Allah is not entirely true. Some
people say that the order would tell its nominee assassins that in order to be in paradise, they have to follow the orders of Hassan, instead of
telling them it was all a vision. and as well, they dont return them home. they throw them in a cell, so dirty and hot, they would think it is hell.
and they tell them, if they want to experience the heaven they were in before, they will follow the orders of the leader, Hassan.
