    The Master of Jinn
    Chapter: The Angel of Death

    At risk of being politically incorrect, I must point out some issuess with this book that are reveled in the excerpt on the chapter, “Angel of Death” –

    Azreal (AS), the angel of death, would not fool with nor play ticks on Allah’s (SWTA) prophets. There is no intrigue nor capacity for intrigue in the maliaka/prophet relationship.

    There is no capacity for independence in the essence of the malaika. They are systemically submitted and implement the instructions of Allah (SWTA).

    Suliman (AS) would not become angry / would not express anger towards any malikut, who are by definition of their existence, in the service of Allah (SWTA). It would be arrogant and rebellious to express such a position before or after the death of his friends.

    The death of Suliman’s friends is muktub and the prophet, who is, – (essential to the character of the nafs – nofus – of prophets) – submitted to his Creator; he could not be a Prophet and be in a station that is exemplified by personal loss in this context.

    Suliman (AS) would be happy for his friends’ fate. For they served a righteous man/funtion and would be destined for reward in the better place.

    Malak al-Maut would not refer to Suliman (AS) as “Lord of the Worlds” – that title is reserved for Allah – Rubb-bil Al Ameen. To make such a reference is not in the capacity of makiaka and if it were, it would be major shirk.

    I would say that if the reminder of this book is consistent with the excerpt I read on this site, it is a fantasy and not the product of wise person. Allah inspires His friends and servants with Haqq. An author without that station has no business writing anything more than strictly historical fact. This book could not have been approved by a Sheikh of the Order. These stories are improper, insulting to Prophet Suliman and Azreal, and disrespectful to the Nurr-i-Muhammad from which all prophets descend.

  12. Irving says:

    Salaam Dear Brother Tahir:

    Please forgive me if I have offended you with this retelling of the tale of King Solomon and the Angel of Death. This story is an old tale found in the Hebrew Talmud and many other sources, repeated many times over the centuries. Here are links to a couple of further examples:

    As you can see, many Sufi Sheikhs use these tales as teaching stories. Inshallah, these links may be of some benefit.

    Ya Haqq!

  13. Tahir al Rufai says:

    You have not offended me. I was pointing out technical clarifications regarding the revision of the nature of the stories and the qualities the subjects have acquired in the process of getting from the source material into the book advertised (i.e. the excerpts I read).

    Actually, the references you provide make my point. They reflect the accurate character, adab and the station of the maliaka and the prophets, with each other and most importantly, with Allah SWTA.

    Do I understand you to be saying that the book has the approval of Sh Nazim or Sh Haqqani?

  14. Irving says:

    Salaam Dear Brother Tahir:

    I have never met Sheikh Nazim or Sheikh Haqqani, since I am a darvish of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order. But the book has the approval of Dr. AliReza Nurbakhsh, Master of the Order, who also had two excerpts printed in Sufi Journal, which the Order publishes bi-annually. One of the excerpts included the story you refer to.

    Ya Haqq!

  15. Tahir says:

    I misunderstood, as your reference was a Naqshbandi Order website. Nimatullah Order would presumably then be a kol tarika, which traces its lineage to the first akhtab, Sheikh Abdl Qadir al Jalanni and originating with Imam Abu Bakir as Saddiq.

    Is a teaching of the Niamatullah Order (the hulka you attend) that Malaika have free will?

    I ran across this quote at IslamOnline this morning:

    “Angels are a high order of God’s creation, no doubt. They were created for the performance of specific tasks Allah the Almighty wants them to undertake. We may say that they were ‘programmed’ (to use a modern term) to obey God, and never to disobey. They are no free beings who can make choices: they have no freedom of will.”

    Also, there is this hadith (selected analysis taken form IslamOnline as well):

    “There is a hadith which narrates how the Angel Jibreel (Gabriel) appeared before the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in the form of a man who needed to know about Islam. He demanded the Prophet: “Inform me about faith. He (the Prophet) replied: That you affirm your faith in Allah, in His angels, in His Books, in His Apostles, in the Day of Judgment, and you affirm your faith in the Divine Decree about good and evil.” (Muslim)

    As can be seen from the above hadith, belief in angels is part of our faith. Generally, faith is described to consist of six major elements. They are:

    1. Belief in Allah: That is the belief that God Almighty is One, Unique, Very much Unlike His Creation, Perfect in every way.

    2. Belief in angels: That is the belief that they are beings who obey Allah’s orders perfectly. They are made of light, they never make mistakes and are never disobedient.”

  16. nakasaan says:

    Only God knows the truth. Human have limited capacity to understand.

    Whatever truth, I had a pleasure reading it.

  36. a project says:

    Dear Mr Karchmar,

    I really enjoyed your first novel and I am waiting for your second book impatiently. I tried to contact you by email about a literary project that I am planning to focus on Master of the Jinn. Yet, I havent received a reply. Could you please inform me when your second novel will be published?

    Yours sincerely,

  37. Hello,

    I happened to read your novel and indeed it was a wonderful read! You have written it very well, that invokes tears from the eyes of the reader. One reference though, i noticed and cant help asking is this – “About Rebecca and Captain touching the pillar at the same time and the light that shone on them, and they seeing each other as if for the first time” — were they special souls or in other words, each half of the same soul?

  38. Irving says:

    Hello Raspberries :) Thank you for the kind words about Master of the Jinn. To answer your question, when Rebecca and Captain Simach each touched the same pillar at the same time, they recognized the inner qualities of each other, and began to fall in love. Since the Jinn built the dwelling and the pillars, it has to have some their innate power within it, including the power to communicate telepathically. It was that power that both illuminated the pillars and caused Rebecca and Aaron to “see” each other clearly, mind to mind, so to speak :) That is what I had in mind, anyway. I hope that answers your question :)

  39. yes, Thank you Irving. I was just wondering because, I heard King Solomon shared the half of his soul with Queen Sheeba, as Nature or God probably chose to have it. So wondered if your novel had the reference to twin souls..

    I loved the way you began your novel, especially the Master, the descriptions you used and with the birds singing. And of course, what touched me most was the first description of the Fakir. all that you have written about the Master is so genuine and touching.. It so much reminds me of my own Master, not in flesh though…
