Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : where can I find a list of the best online tarot reading?

Answer by Masticina Akicta
I see a problem how is an online tarot supposed to work? I mean sure tarot is generic enough to spout out enough basic wisdoms to usually fit but here is the trick. Tarot is a tool to divine insights, it is to get insights into your own situations and if you do a reading on others what the other situation is to be. What the future might hold if they go a certain path. Or things like what spiritual issues they might be having!

This requires the ENERGY of the questor so to say to come to the reader/deck. How is that possible online? It doesn ‘t works by just running a script you require a person who can use the cards to divine said message, to guide you through understanding the meanings and how to improve the situations ahead if needed.

Best is to just test things out go with a small question, harmless enough and see if the energy you recieve feels well. If it feels trustable.. watch out though the snake has a bright smile!

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : american sufis who say “we are not muslims”?

I went looking for some local sufis online. I am not a sufi. I don’t belong to an order or have a teacher. I just want to see how they are here.

I already know to expect silly hippies and tarot card readers who tack on the word “sufi” because it sounds cool and esoteric.

But one group says on its website “we are not Muslims” with no explanation. It made me wonder if Muslims are unwelcome at their…events.

No sufi I’ve met would say “I am not a Muslim”. Even the Christian sufis say “my religion is Christianity but I am a Muslim because I am one who surrenders to God” .

I know some Muslims don’t like sufism, but isn’t it still true that sufism has its roots in Islam and is essentially a form of Islam?

I am sure academia recognized sufism as Islam. Its one thing to include non Muslims but another to have them stealing culture. Will they begin to say “rumi was not a Muslim”???

When I calm down and find a community of Muslims locally I will ask them why they say that.

What do you think? Can people who claim to be sufis say they are not muslims?

Answer by SoldierGirl
People can claim or deny any label that they wish. In the end, Allah knows best.

Answer by Sahhid
Sufism can actually gel with any religion. There are Sufi who are not Muslim they just practice Sufism with Christianity or Judaism because all three of those religions are similar.

Sufism say it is “a science whose objective is the reparation of the heart and turning it away from all else but God” so any religion that has god in it can be Sufi only reason why it associates with Islam is because it originated and also vast majority Sufi’s are Muslim. The typical early Sufi lived in a cell of a mosque and taught a small band of disciples.

The extent to which Sufism was influenced by Buddhist and Hindu mysticism, and by the example of Christian hermits and monks, is disputed, but self-discipline and concentration on God quickly led to the belief that by quelling the self and through loving ardour for God it is possible to maintain a union with the divine in which the human self melts away.

Fact is Sufism is similar to Monks meditating and the Jewish Kabbalah.

Another source says ” The difference between Sufis and Islam is sometimes as extreme as the difference between Mormons and Catholics, depending on the particular order. Some Western Sufi orders have even completely divorced themselves from Islam altogether. Yet, Sufism is integrated in Islam. The mystical aspects of Sufism may have ancient influences, but these traditions center on what goes on within a individual. Islam stresses service, virtue, honesty and charity, the essence of Sufism and a foundation that is necessary for the inner spirituallity of Sufism. It may seem that either Sufism influenced Islam or the other way around, but there is little surviving recorded history that sheds light on this. Even when an order does not incorperate Islam for the laws and practice of daily life, there are disciplines and doctrine to the place of Islam.

Islam recognizes Abraham, Moses and Jesus, but they credit Mohammad for reintroducing the true religion without contamination. Sufis extend this, believing that all prophets and saints of all religions are inspired by the same source and the rejection of any one is a rejection of the essential Truth behind them all – the one God. That one God is absolute, extending beyond time or space, and all that is within the universe is of God, including good and evil.”

Answer by M Javed Iqbal
As you said, Soofism is an offshoot of Islam. But Islam is not derived from
Soofism. So it is quite possible that they are non Muslims impersonating
like soofis to fool Muslims and non Muslims alike.

Islam is a complete code of conduct. And true soofis say if you can do
five pillars of Islam without any outside help, then you do not need anything
else in order to gain salvation. Read Quran and ahadis and famous scholars
of Islam, like Imam Ghazali, Dr Iqbal and Syed Qutub.

In fact soofi school is like a nursery to make learning interesting for children,
Grown ups do not need it as they know that learning itself is rewarding. Soofi
beginners are given some toys to play with, small miracles or visions. But the
Reality is enough to keep you busy, I guess.

Answer by muslimah
In order to judge something as Islamic, it must be judged and weighed by the well-established criteria and standards of Shari`ah as enshrined in the Book and the Sunnah.

Thus if a certain Sufi practice or custom is opposed to the prescribed criteria of the Shari`ah as enshrined in the Quran and the Sunnah, it shall be judged as un-Islamic; if, however, it agrees with these criteria it shall be judged as perfectly Islamic.

Outstanding Muslim scholars have divided Sufism into two broad categories in order to determine its compatibility or non-compatibility with the Shari`ah.

Firstly, genuine and authentic Sufism, which is undoubtedly in perfect agreement with the Book, the Sunnah, and the practices of Salaf As-Salih (early righteous Muslims). Tasawwuf of Sufi masters such as Junyad Al-Baghdadi, Abu Sulayman Al-Darani, etc. belong to this category of authentic and genuine Tasawwuf.

Secondly, pseudo-Sufism which includes those who uphold and advocate cultic practices or customs that are contrary to the Sunnah, as well as those who have mixed Sufism with speculative Mysticism/Neo-Platonism, and thus dabble in metaphysical theories about cosmos, emanations, etc. Both these groups are charlatans and impostors. While the former invent new forms of `Ibadah (acts of worship) that are not sanctioned by the Law-giver, the latter mix philosophy with religion and blur the essential distinction between the Creator and creation, which is the basis of Prophetic religion. There is no doubt that indulgence in such forms of Sufism takes humans away from their true purpose and mission in life which is to do Gods will on earth. These pseudo-Sufis turn the goal of human life into contemplation of mysteries of the universe; it is contrary to the Quranic definition of the purpose of human existence.

It is because of the real dangers inherent in such aberrations, and deviations that the early Sufi masters tirelessly preached the importance of weighing everything by the firm yardstick of the Shari`ah: Abu Al-Qasim Al-Junayd, one of the genuine masters of authentic Tasawwuf, said, The essence of Tawhid (monotheism) is to distinguish the eternal from the temporal; he also said, Whoever does not retain the Quran, nor studies the Hadith cannot be trusted in this matter (Tasawwuf) since our knowledge is bound solely by the teachings of the Book and the Sunnah.

Abu Sulayman Ad-Darani said, Often one of the insights of the Sufi folk occurs to me and yet I do not accept it until I examine it by the testimony of the two of the most reliable witnesses: the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him.

According to an eminent scholar, Authentic Tasawwuf is at once a cognitive and practical discipline of souls, curing of diseases of hearts, implanting of virtues, and purging souls off their vices and carnal desires, and training in patience, contentment and obedience to Allah; it is struggle against the carnal soul, and combating its base inclinations and meticulous scrutiny of actions and non-actions, and guarding souls against the invasions and influx of heedlessness and vain thoughts, and severing off all hindrances and obstacles that hinder and hamper ones journey to Allah; it is asceticism in everything that distracts a person from celebrating remembrance of Allah and make ones hearts focused on it. It is knowledge of Allah and conviction in Him, affirming His Oneness and glorifying Him, and turning wholly unto Him, and turning away from everything else; it is to be solely focused entirely on worshipping and obeying Allah, and compliance with His limits, and acting according to His Shari`ah, and exposing oneself to the graces and gifts that Allah vouchsafes to His chosen servants as a sheer sign of His grace and mercy.

Another scholar said, Tasawwuf is to adorn oneself with every noble traits of character and to shun every base one. Or, stated differently, It is to examine ones states and cling to noble manners.

Sufism is the spiritual side of Islam, the side many muslims fear. Sufism is part of islam like shairah is, it is every muslims duty to seek god and to love him, the core principle of sufism.

Knight of Swords

Answer by bunchkin
I like your question – I starred it interesting ­čÖé

But anyways…I think everyone is all the cards. Each situation of each card happens to everyone at some point of life.

At any point of time, you could be more one card, or more another, and that could change at anytime (haha wheel of fortune)

I took an online short silly quiz “which tarot card are you?” and it said I’m the moon. I don’t fully agree, like I said….I prefer saying ALL the cards

Answer by akatte
Personally I relate to the Knight of Cups, even though I’m female. I find this person to be outgoing, friendly and sensitive. I feel as though I am genuine and and I’m an emotional person. I feel like the Knight of Cups embodies all of those qualities.

I rarely compare court cards on physical similarities, I know some people do, but I feel that to be very limiting. I also don’t confine myself to reading court cards only as people. Sometimes it’s the essence of the card or the card’s personality that is in the forefront. Here is an example of a court card read for a wide range of people:
http://spiritcaat.com/spiritcaatblog/?p=13

Clearly that is not meant to represent the ‘personality’ of every person reading the interpretation, but it does use the essence of the card’s personality to present a message to a large mass of people.

There’s a good book on court card interpretation: http://www.spiritcaat.com/tarot-books.php — It’s the 5th one down on the page.

It’s called “Understanding the Court.” It is a bit more advanced, so if you’re a beginner, I don’t think I’d recommend it, but I liked it. I don’t use all of it, for instance, I don’t use significators (which is very close to what you’re asking) but it did open up some interesting insights on the personalities of the cards.

One last thing, I read the court cards for years without assigning ‘people’ to them. When I read this book and opened that option for myself, I realized that the qualities & meanings I had been assigning the cards with were not any different than what I was being presented with as new material. It wasn’t new, it was just from a different perspective.

Keep all of your options open when reading the court. They are difficult cards to wrap your mind around, but like any other card in the deck, you just need to develop a ‘relationship’ with them. The more you do that, the more you will recognize which ones are most like you and which ones are not.

Hope this helps.

For me, the Queen of Pentacles.
My astrological chart is loaded with Earth signs and Pentacles associates with Earth.
This queen has a good business sense and strong work ethics. I have a job, and my own small business. Regardless of personal funds, I still do what I can for those who have less than I and are in need of help. I open the door to my home for others when needed.
I’m quite practical and thrifty with cash, making a little go a long way. I love the Earth & Nature and I am down to earth.

Spirit has entrusted me with these gifts to help you in all areas of your life. It has been an exciting journey. This gift is generational and my grandmother and father both had the gift as well as my children.
