In your post you ask that your message finds the right eyes. How will you judge this? Is there another who will also be compelled by your message to
join you? Is this person an ATS member, and how will you know him/her?
I will know because they will find me safe passage to a nation in the East where I will stand before the Imam's and be tried.
If they do not find my words true and from Allah, I will be put to death and this world that exists within my mind will cease.
What follows that, I do not know.
@Iamiam , what would happen is this .
You would meet an Imam , a leader of a Mosque , in a situation where both you and he are equals . You would discuss the quran together , both of you
on someone else's terms and timescale , such as an academic lesson.
Your knowledge of the quran would be set against the Imam's intimate knowledge of the book .Which would be and likely is , far more intimate than
If your knowledge of the quran were to equal or to further that of the Imam , an or to further the Imam's own
knowledge of the quran , the Imam would begin to show interest , but not openly at this point .
By your knowledge , the Imam would not asess the assertions you made during the lesson , neither any statement or observation you made . However he
would assess your knowledge on the questions which you asked there of the the leader of the lesson .
You would have asked quality questions which suddenly advanced everyone's knowledge , and not just that of the Imam.
After the lesson you would be addressed personally, but not in private , by the one Imam assessing you . He would there shake your hand , call you
brother , and ask many personal questions of you , such as your name , where you come from , how you ended up here , who you know , and what your
intentions are .
In subsequent weeks , you will be invited to further lessons , and your questions of the teachers will be heard in detail . The value of your intent ,
and the 'speciality' of your persona would be examined in more than thorough detail . You will be invited to the house of the Imam and encouraged
to meet his family , say prayers , eat , and to discuss the books again in detail.
After these things , the Imam will make up his mind regarding you . Are you someone to invite into the fold , an addition to the brotherhood , or
someone to hold up as being 'other' , than the (his) brothers who simply hold the book as true and worship in the ways of their forebears . ?
For him to ask this question of himself at all , he would have to have seen something which really did count as 'other' about you , and he would
have to really and honestly think that whatever this other was , was certainly something out of the ordinary , enough to herald as coming from God. He
would have to have seen objective proofs , and come to have regarded them as 'signs' from his Lord and Master . @'Signs , which regarded you . <
Now after all this , which is a trial , but one you would have enjoyed , this Imam has to take the fearsome step of announcing his findings , his
belief about you , to his brothers , and the other Immams
And this is where his trial begins , not yours . He is likely to be assuaged by doubters , who typically will not herald his empirical objective
evidence aka , you , and or the 'signs' which he has beleived in .
If the Imam , is very sure regardless of this huge test or trial the doubters put him in , he will travel to Mecca , both to question himself , and to
find those who will document his quest and therefore begin to beleive him ..
He is not accepted by now in his home Mosque and his trip to Mecca means he is demoted and his position as Imman is removed .
However if he still holds his view , not only has he stayed true to himself, his God , and not least , yourself , eventually those who eventually do
and did hear him , come to say , ok , we have seen this objective and empirical evidence, ..perhaps.. because it reached us too from another source
At this point , the trial is over . Widespread acceptance of the beleif (in your overarching holiness) is likely to follow . You will go on to change
the world in the ways of massive upheavals in consciousness , excepting the fact that there are those , just as the previous doubters , who will not
blindly accept your words or acts , even with the objectively held facts before them .
There are also those who hold oppostion to you . Now you have not been through this trial for nothing and with ardent supporters you have little to
fear . One of those at least, is God himself . There maystill be a huge struggle against you , but had you failed in the foregoing ?
