Daheshism on its 72nd Anniversary

March 23rd is the 72nd anniversary of
the birth of Daheshism.

It is a message of Spiritual enlightenment, hope, and love.

A message that is so amazing, that it can change the fate of
the human race and every living creature on earth.

Daheshism is an elixir that can remedy what ails humanity.

It can enhance our Spiritual knowledge by shedding light on
our link to this vast universe and our origin.

It shatters all beliefs that negate the existence of a
Creator and reinforces all others with new Spiritual knowledge.

It sets for us a solid foundation to build our lives on governed
by decency, compassion, love, respect, and lofty aspirations.


Daheshism is the best-kept secret in life.

Its tenets are locked safely within the chests of a few, who
were privileged to receive them from the Great Conveyor and are grateful to
receive such a wonderful gift.

However, possessing such Spiritual knowledge without sharing
it with others is contrary to the will of our Beloved and Guiding Prophet, who
lived his entire life for this sole purpose.

What good does it do for those individuals if what quenched
their thirst is not passed on to quench the thirst of others?

Sadly, Daheshism has not been given yet a proper platform to
reveal itself to humanity!

Sooner or later, this best-kept secret will be revealed to
the masses!

It is my hope that this anniversary marks the beginning!

  1. Dear Mr. Murad, My name is Brian. I’ve been interested in learning about the enigmatic man known as Dr.Dahesh and what he has taught as well as his miracles since a year ago. I have been trying to find information about him as well as your faith but I haven’t found any reliable data due to certain articles on the internet that were more or less misleading. It is my hope that someone cansomehow can provide me with truthful material on this blog and possibly some answers to a few more questions that I might have about your impressive and unique religion. Thank you very much and God bless. P.S. please forgive me if I haven’t been articulate enough. Thank you.

  2. Dear Mr. Murad my name is Brian. I have been interested in learning about the man known as Dr.Dahesh and what he taught since I read about him a few months ago. It’s my hope that someone somehow can provide me with accurate information about this enigmatic man as well as the faith that he has founded since I heard there has been some misleading articles about him and his teachings on the web. If anyone can provide me with truthful information and possibly some answers to a few questions that I might have it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless. P.S. please forgive me if I haven’t been articulate enough.

  3. Dear Brian,

    Thank you for contacting me regarding Dr. Dahesh and Daheshism. Yes, you are absolutely correct about the inaccurate information present on the internet. I know that everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion and is free to voice that opinion. That’s why http://www.daheshism.com is devoid of any personal opinions. It is a repository of information, from reliable sources, about a Spiritual Message delivered to humanity through our Beloved and Guiding Prophet, known as Dr. Dahesh.

    Please feel free to go over the information I referenced and ask whatever questions that you may have.

    May God bless you as well and enlighten your path.

  4. Dear Mr. Murad,

    Thank you for responding to my comment and request. I have gone over some of the information on this cite such as some of the Doctors sayings and also personal testimonies of people who have known him personally. There is no doubt that Dr.Dahesh was a deep individual. As a catholic myself I am also interested in learning about other faiths because I personally believe we are all essentially connected in a mysterious ways. That being said I just have a couple of questions regarding certain religious founders. One of them is what does your faith believe concerning a man named bahaullah who founded the Bahai Faith? Because I have been doing some reading on them. Another is what are your views on Mani a Persian who founded Manicheanism in the 4th century, whether the Doctor said anything about him or not? These are just some of the questions that I have, though I’ll admit they are somewhat unorthadox. Again thank you for your response and God bless you. I trust that he’ll always enlighten me where I’m ignorant.


  5. Dear Brian,

    Humanity have had many guides over the centuries. Some are well known to us and some are not. The ultimate test of a true guide is whether or not the message being delivered bears the fruit of good or evil. To the best of my knowledge, Dr. Dahesh did not say anything negative about Bahaullah, Mani, or Smith. However, Dr. Dahesh had plenty to say about the prophets of the three Abrahamic faiths as well as Buddha.

    Please bear in mind that the purpose of Daheshism is to provide a faith that encompasses all faiths. It is not concerned with the individual branches of a tree, rather with its trunk. Without the trunk, you have no tree or branches. There is a Spiritual wisdom in delivering certain religions to certain regions, people, and period. Ultimately, all religions call for doing good and for the belief in God Almighty.

  6. Dear Mr.Murad,

    Thanks for answering my questions concerning those certain spiritual founders. It’s ironic that you said that all faiths essentially come from the same “trunk” because when I was younger I used to love reading about geography, history, different cultures, and religions. I grew up being raised catholic, so I was taught spirituality from an early age. As I grew though I came to question my faith and for a time fell away from it. I felt like I lost myself and didn’t want anything to do with what I considered religious nonsense at the time. Long story short, I couldn’t take the pain any longer, I was so miserable because of the shallowness of the life I was living. Then one day I took advice from my father who told me when things go wrong check your prayer life. So I gave it a try, even if I could only utter a few words but it did make a difference. Eventually one thing lead to another and I found myself feeling healed on the inside from those very things I threw away. I came to God on a personal level, I regained some self control through the morals I grew up with, but most of all I gained a better understanding of what religion really means. As a consequence, and as a result of a gradual prayer life I also started reading into the works of other faiths such as the quran, the bagavad gita, and some sayings of the buddha, and I came to view things from another perspective. I started to believe that the holy spirit spoke in some way through the individuals who founded some of these faiths. I must say it felt like a breakthrough in my perspective, and though I was taught to treat everyone with equal respect and that all people are Gods children, I understood that people of other faiths are just like me with the same human nature, with the same God, with the same destiny. I believe we are all one and that one day God will bring us together. Agian thank you for answering my question and I hope I didn’t say to much but I feel like I needed to express this from my heart.

    I just have another question. I heard somewhere that Dr.Dahesh is supposed to reincarnate in the 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th centuries. I want to know if that’s true or not.

    Thank you for your time.



  7. Dear Brian,

    Thank you for sharing your story. Yes, life without religion is meaningless and empty. There has to be a purpose in life, otherwise, it is not worth living. This is my personal opinion on the subject matter.

    As to Dr. Dahesh reincarnating into the future, whatever you’ve been reading is absolute nonsense. There is nothing in Daheshism or any of the writings of Dr. Dahesh that reflects this. As Daheshists, we believe that this life-cycle on earth is nearing its end, so if there is a future reincarnation of Christ, it is unlikely to take place in this life-cycle, and most likely in the next. If Earth is destroyed, it may not be for thousands–if not millions–of years before life returns. That being said, we cannot second guess Divine wisdom. If the Heavenly Father decides that a return of Christ is necessary, then it will take place and regardless of what we think.

    Remember, the only entity that is responsible for Spiritual enlightenment throughout the universe is that of Christ. It is true that there is no salvation without Christ and all religions were delivered to humanity through Christ.



  8. Dear Mr.Murad,

    Thank you for answering that question. I just wanted to make sure considering that at the time I read that info from an unreliable source called anglefire.com.

    Also I just have one more question for now. According to Daheshism, what is the difference between a guide and a prophet?
    Another one that I have is that I heard Dr. Brax, your faith’s representative, if I have that correctly, is supposed to be coming out with a book about your faith. If that’s so is there a way I could obtain it?

    Thanks again



  9. Dear Brian,

    The source of information that you referenced is highly inaccurate and most of it contradicts with what Daheshism teaches. Most of it is fabricated and does not represent the truth in any way.

    As to the difference between a guide and a prophet, a guide can be a reformer of religious practices or social injustices. A guide could be an individual inspired to bring about a change by appealing to the human conscience and or logic.

    A prophet is linked to the Christ entity and is endowed with prophecy–as in some of the prophets of the Old Testament, or prophecy and miracles–as in the case of Moses, Jesus, and Dahesh. But only a select few prophets are responsible for the creation of a new religion–Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and Dahesh. The term prophet is used interchangeably at times with the term messenger, as in the case of some of the messengers of the Old Testament in the likes of Jonah. Also messengers can be sent to bring about new concepts in philosophy, in the likes of Socrates, Plato, Confucius, or in other disciplines aimed to enlighten and or expand knowledge.

    As to Dr. Brax, yes, it is true that he wrote extensively about Daheshism and he is considered to be one of the pillars of Daheshism. His book, “The Book of Daheshism” will be published in the near future. It is currently in editing and translation.



  10. Dear Mr. Murad,

    Thanks for answering my questions and for referencing me to a reliable web cite that contains true information on Dr. Dahesh and his teachings. Now at least I know if I have anymore questions, I can come to the right place.

    Thank you for clarifying things for me and may God bless you.



  11. To Mr. Murad:

    According to Daheshism what exactl6 8s a life-cycle?

    Also about the Ramz rite. Did Dr.Dahesh invent this ritual, did he find it somewhere else, or was he influenced by mystical concepts from other disciplines that aided in it’s creation?

    What is the connecrion between Daheshism and the Druze religion? Does it have anything to do with the Druze founder Al Hakim?

    Thank you.

    From: Brian

  12. Dear Brian,

    A life-cycle for any living entity is the period of time between the beginning of life to the end of life. Our existing life-cycle begins at birth and ends with our death. In other words, it is a duration of one reincarnation. The life-cycle for Earth, or a creation cycle, is the period from the emergence of life to the end of life. For example, we are currently in the life-cycle that began with Noah and will end with the destruction of Earth. Earth has been through hundreds of life-cycles, where civilization emerges, reaches a certain level, and then destroyed either by natural disasters or self-inflicted–as would be the case of a nuclear war. Thousands, if not millions, of years can pass between life-cycles, where earth is given time to heal and to be able to support life again. This is where Daheshism and science are in agreement that life on earth did not begin less than 10 thousand years ago.

    As to the Holy Ramz, Dr. Dahesh did not invent anything. The Holy Ramz is directly conveyed to him by the Spirit and is not a new concept. If you recall from reading the New Testament of the Bible, when a woman caught in the act of marital infidelity, was brought to Jesus, so he could pass judgment on her, the Bible says that Jesus was writing on the ground with his finger. what do you think he was writing? Daheshists believe it was the Holy Ramz. After he was done, he was inspired to say his famous saying about casting the first stone. The Holy Ramz is a serious prayer and appeal to the Maker.

    There is no connection between Daheshism and the Druze religion. Daheshism has full respect for all religions.



  13. Dear Mr.Murad,

    Thank you for educating me on that. I always wondered what Jesus was writing in the ground. I used to think it was the sins of the Pharisees that were accusing the adulteress that he wrote in the dirt.

    Also I take it that you had the privilege of meeting Dr.Dahesh. If so what was his personality like and could you relate any personal miraculous stories that you witnessed?



  14. Dear Mr.Murad,

    I’ve read in the Memoirs of Jesus of Nazareth that Christ said as he was leaving Nazareth that he was going to return after 20 centuries have passed. If I’m correct doesn’t that calculate to the 21st century because he was speaking in the 1st? Let me know if I’m wrong though.

    Also so many people I talk to about the resurrection of Jesus don’t believe it ever happened. Rather they say it was symbolic. I know what your faith believes about it and I’ll admit it’s quite unique. What kind of evidence do you think I could give to support that it was a real physical event?



  15. Dear Brian,

    The following link talks about the execution and resurrection of one of Dr. Dahesh’s Personalities on pages 28-29 and the parallels to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ:


    As to the other question, I will reference the original text when I get a chance and let you know.



  16. Dear Brian,

    The following is the only reference I found in Memoirs of Jesus of Nazareth about his return and it doesn’t mention specifically which century:

    Please let me know if you have a different reference.



  17. Dear Mr. Murad,

    This is what I found:

    The Departure of Christ

    From “Memoirs of Jesus of Nazareth”

    By Dr. Dahesh


    O city of Nazareth! I will return to you after so many years.

    I will return to you, however, you will reject me again.

    I will return to you when it is time to reveal the truth.

    I will return to you, however, you will be drowning in sins.

    Then you will not listen to me, as you are not listening to me now!

    O city of Nazareth! Woe to you if you continue with your oppression and recklessness!

    When my final hour comes, I will leave your land only to return to it after 20 centuries.

    At that time your name would have spread throughout the earth, from east to west.

    Every inhabitant living under the stars will recognize you and you will become their envy.

    After these 20 centuries, your soil will hold the remains of one of my disciples

    That until now I have not yet chosen.

    As to you, you will remain the same.

    And you will carry the name of the Nazarene,

    Without having true faith take hold in your heart.

    Woe and woe to you if you do not change your ways.

    Farewell O village of my upbringing,

    Whose water I drank,

    Whose fruits I ate,

    Where I took shelter under your shades,

    And enjoyed your sunshine.

    O children of my father and mother, Farewell.

    I don’t know if the mention above about “return after twenty centuries” would refer to the 21st century or not because since he was writing from the first century,twenty centuries added would equal 21.



  18. Dear Brian,

    Thank you for pointing out the reference to me. It is actually my translation that you referenced, for it deviates slightly from the published version of the book. Although it deviates in style, but it does not deviate in meaning.

    As to the reference for the 20 centuries, it is a little bit confusing. Here is the definition of a century:
    “In contemporary use, a century is popularly calculated as beginning in a year that ends with ‘00,’ whereas the traditional system designates the ‘00’ year as the final year of a century. This discrepancy was particularly apparent on January 1, 2000, which was commercially celebrated worldwide as the first day of the 21st century, even though January 1, 2001, was regarded as the more proper date for this milestone.”

    Going by this definition, here is the breakdown:

    Years                 Century

    0-100 1
    101-200 2
    201-300 3
    301-400 4
    401-500 5
    501-600 6
    601-700 7
    701-800 8
    801-900 9
    901-1000 10
    1001-1100 11
    1101-1200 12
    1201-1300 13
    1301-1400 14
    1401-1500 15
    1501-1600 16
    1601-1700 17
    1701-1800 18
    1801-1900 19
    1901-2000 20

    As you can see, it is actually 20 centuries. Neither the Arabic text, nor its translation stipulates that 20 centuries would have to conclude before his return. If that’s the case, then you would be correct in saying his return would be in the 21st century and not the 20th.

    I hope this clarifies the matter.



  19. Dear Mr. Murad,

    I’m sorry. I Just tried posting comment after your response and I don’t know if it went through. Please let me know if you received it. Thank you.



  20. Dear Mr. Murad,

    I have three more questions regarding the metaphysics of Daheshism.

    Is the Christ spirit higher than the Mother spirits or is the Christ spirit one of them?

    How does Daheshism interpret some of the symbols in the Book of Revelation? Is Dr. Dahesh considered to be the seventh angel?

    Did the Doctor ever talk about the resurrection of Jesus? If so did he give any details as to how and what happened?

    Thank you and God bless you.

  21. Dear Brian,

    To answer your first question, one needs to develop an understanding of the Spiritual Realm, the creation of the Spirits, and their fall–that led to the creation of the physical worlds. These are very complex and are explained in full in “The Book of Daheshism.” Here is a small excerpt on the subject:

    The entirely pure Spirit of Lord Christ was created along with the other Divine Spirits that God Almighty had created in eternity. The 600 Sayyals of this Spirit were subjected to the same tests that the Creating Force willed on the Sayyals of all Divine Spirits, however, the Sayyals of this Spirit were the quickest to pass the tests and return to the Worlds of Spirit and then to elevate themselves continuously throughout the Spiritual Realm. As a result of this continuous elevation aimed at accomplishing its Spiritual goal of uniting with the Creator, the Sayyals of Christ that passed the lower levels of the Worlds of Divinity formed newly elevated Heavens, where the Sayyals act as Spiritual components forming the Heavenly Father—father of all living beings, to include human beings. The Beloved Prophet speaking on behalf of Jesus Christ says: “Then the Father in the high Heavens knows what to give to each living son of His.

    As to the Book of Revelation, there were hundreds of Gospels written, however, the ones that made it to the New Testament were selected through inspiration. Does that mean they are 100% accurate? Not at all, but overall closer to the Truth than all the others. The book of Revelation is very complex and clearly, some of the signs do have their interpretations in Daheshism. It is a highly mystical book. As to Dr. Dahesh being the 7th angel, the answer is “No.” Angels assist the Heavenly Father in governing the physical worlds, however, they are not part of the “Christ Entity,” where all Prophets are. The Guardian angel responsible for earth and a countless other worlds assisted Dr. Dahesh in delivering his Divine Message. The Guardian angel made his presence known to us when our Beloved Prophet was in our midst.

    As to the resurrection of Jesus, did you read the link I sent you a few messages ago? That link explains this topic in details.


    Mounir Murad

  22. Dear Mr. Murad,

    Again thank you very much for your insight. As to what you said about the guardian angel of earth appearing before you and others while you were with the Doctor, if I’m not bothering by asking, can you explain to me the event and what you saw? Only be because this is so amazing for me to contemplate on how much we as human beings still don’t understand our own physical universe and its laws and that miracles do happen every day for those who witness them.

    Thank you



  23. Dear Brian,

    When our Beloved and Guiding Prophet was in our midst, the Guardian Angel would reveal himself through our Beloved Prophet. By that I mean the Guardian Angel would briefly inhabit the body of our Beloved Prophet and speak through him. Once the Guardian Angel leaves, our Beloved Prophet usually has no recollection of what had transpired. Many were the times where the Guardian Angel appears and tells us exactly what we were thinking, or provide us with an important Spiritual Letter–I have couple of my own. If you recall, the New Testament mentions on more than one occasion that “Jesus was taken by the Spirit.” It is exactly the same phenomenon.

    Once the “Book of Daheshism” is published, you’ll be able to read about hundreds–if not thousands of incidents where the Guardian Angel made an appearance or delivered a message. Also, in the future there will be many autobiographies of many Daheshists, describing their encounters with the Guardian Angel.

    Yes, there is so much that we don’t understand about our physical world.


    Mounir Murad

  24. Dear Mr. Murad,

    Please forgive, though it’s teachings are very unique and in some sense answers a lot of questions that divides many faiths apart, but if Daheshism is the message for humanity now, then how come most of the world hasn’t heard of it and why isn’t it taught vigorously so that the world may know?



  25. Dear Brian,

    You asked a great question! There is no single answer as to why Daheshism has not spread throughout the world. Here are some reasons:
    1-The Book of Daheshism is still being edited prior to publication. It is in 6 volumes. After it is published, it needs to be translated to English. It will take time. This is the book that explains Daheshism in the clearest form.
    2-Daheshism must be organized as an official religion, governed by an elected board of directors–as were the wishes of our Beloved Prophet. Daheshism should never be considered as a cult. I personally would never accept a cult form of Daheshism and I will never be a cult follower.
    3-The Gospel of Mark was written roughly 40 years after the crucifixion. Granted, the early Christians endured persecution. This may not be the case with Daheshism, however, there is so much information on the internet that it crowds out our message. We truly believe that Daheshism will spread though out the world, however, what is not known is how soon and by what method. Everything has its time and place.


    Mounir Murad

  26. Dear Mr. Murad,

    With regard to life after death I understand that Daheshism teaches that our Spiritual Fluids are reincarnated after death depending on the decisions we make and our spiritual station as a result, but does Daheshism believe that the consciousness of the person survives? Is there a transcendent self of the person or an individuality of the person that lives on after death unchanged?
    Thank you.



  27. Dear Brian,

    The subject of the Sayyals (Spiritual Fluids) is very complex and is explained in details in a series of essays on http://www.daheshism.com under daheshism/ideology/Sayyals1-4.


    Mounir Murad

  28. Dear Mr.Murad,

    What does Daheshism believe about spiritual channeling, mediumship, or the possibility of deceased souls staying trapped here on earth such as the case with certain houses or areas that have been considered haunted?

    Also what does Daheshism believe about certain “mystical” individuals like Padre Pio, St. Francis, Edgar Cayce and others who have had visions or supernatural abilities?

    Thank you as always.



  29. Dear Brian,

    No individual possesses spiritual powers other than the Prophets. Even the Prophets themselves and guardian angels are unable to violate the physical laws that govern the universe without the permission of the Heavenly Father. All this talk about channeling, mediumship, seance, telepathy, telekinesis, magic, sorcery, witchcraft, hypnosis, and many others, are nothing but human fabrications. There are no ghosts or hunted houses either.

    As to the “mystical” individuals that you mention, Daheshism does not negate the possibility that certain visions can take place, but they do take place for a specific reason that would require a significant elaboration–such would be the case with Kahlil Gibran–but not the ones you referenced.


    Mounir Murad

  30. Dear Mr. Murad,

    As to the significant elaborations, why wouldn’t other individuals be able to have certain abilities? I do know that there are frauds out there and hypnosis is only a psychological process that depends solely on the patient’s free choice to follow the therapists psychological suggestions. Almost like meditation, but I don’t believe it can be used for anything “supernatural” though. Also your absolutely right about seances since there are a lot of frauds out there but I do know personally friends who are somewhat spiritually sensitive to things we can’t see. Altogether though channeling opens up doors to evil forces.
    But with two of the individuals that I mentioned before I’m only wondering because their abilities were attested by other people from different backgrounds, they weren’t looking for fame, and like you said they couldn’t do these things by their own will. They would just try to pray and sometimes miraculous th8ngs would happen. With that said they were also humble, loving, and devout individuals so I don’t think that they had a motive to cheat people. I don’t know too much about Edgar Cayce because I only heard about him.



  31. Dear Brian,

    God’s mercy is infinite and I am not surprised to see miracles taking place everyday somewhere in this world that would save someone from death, sickness, or a catastrophe. However, such occurrences are not random or caused by human beings, rather, they take place through the powers of the guardian angel–as instructed by the Holy Father. As a general rule, any supernatural occurrence is not the work of human beings. If you recall the story of the wedding at Cana, when Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.” As you can see, not even Jesus was able to perform a miracle whenever he wanted.

    Has there been visions seen by people? I am sure of that! The question is to what purpose? We have no way to find out.


    Mounir Murad

  32. Dear Mr. Murad,

    I’ve read about how Jesus and Doctor Dahesh possessed the 20th spiritual fluid of Christ. What does the other 19 pertain to?

    Thank you.


  33. Dear Brian,

    It is difficult to answer your question in simple terms because there is so much to know about the Spiritual Realm and the Spiritual Ideals.  Here is an excerpt from the Book of Daheshism on the subject: “The loftiest Sayyal of Christ that was sent to Earth to descend on the various Prophets and Guides is the 20th Sayyal—further explanations to follow. It was named as such because its Spiritual Ideal is located in the Twentieth level of the Spiritual Worlds. The various Sayyals of the Christ god that descended to Earth are distributed over several of the lower Spiritual levels, including the Sayyal of the Prophet Moses located in the 7th Spiritual level. As to our sun, its Spiritual Ideal is present in the 5th Spiritual level, while the moon is in the 3rd level. Each of the 150th Spiritual level contains 2 million Spiritual Worlds, each independent of the others. From the truths that were revealed through Daheshism, no human being was able to go beyond the lower levels of the Spiritual Worlds to merge with the Christ god except for 17 Sayyals and that took place just after the coming of Jesus Christ. For this reason, the Lord of Glory said: “And no one has ever gone up to heaven except the Son of Man, who came down from heaven.” (John 3:13) As to the 17 Sayyals, 8 belonged to Peter the Apostle, 5 to Matthew of the Gospels, and 4 to the Prophet Elijah. However, each of the three mentioned had many reincarnations on Earth under different names. As an example, one of the reincarnations of the Prophet Elijah is John the Baptist.”


    Mounir Murad

  34. Dear Mr. Murad,

    I’d like to ask about Dahrshism or Dr. Dahesh’s views about sex and sexuality. I know that Dr. Dahesh gave certain prohibitions for certain sexual acts. But as long as it is within it’s “lawful” context, does Daheshism view sexuality overall as a blessing or a curs? Is there any beauty or “sacredness” about sex from a Daheshist point of view?

    Thank you and sincerely,

    P.S. I like the new format.

    • Dear Brian,

      According to Daheshism, sexuality came to be after the fall of Adam and Eve from their earthly Paradise. Prior to that, sexuality did not even enter their thoughts. Adam and Eve were supposed to live for a certain period of time and then elevate spiritually to a loftier existence. With their disobedience of God’s command of not eating from the tree of life, sexual desire took over them and they had intercourse. The Old Testament mentions that they discovered that they were naked and used fig leaves to cover themselves. When they were expelled from the earthly paradise, they came into contact with the inhabitants of the earth at the time, who were already sexually active. Actually, Genesis tells us that when Cain killed his brother Abel, he moved away where he found his wife.

      Sexuality is not “sanctioned” by religion, rather it is a degraded Spiritual Fluid that prevents the soul from elevating to a loftier existence. It is a very complex issue that I addressed in my book “Daheshism and the Journey of Life” and here is an excerpt on the issue:

      “When a man and a woman have sexual intercourse, they basically agree to merge some of their Group2 spiritual fluids. It is for this specific reason that promiscuous sexual behavior is forbidden in most religions, although traditional religion does not explain why. Such a merger of Group2 spiritual fluids, especially with those of many individuals, can be catastrophic. Individuals can be linked with each other for many lives to come, thus hindering their spiritual progression toward the upper worlds. At some point in time they may take on a life as husband and wife; in other lives, as father and daughter, father and son, mother and son, mother and daughter, brother and brother, brother and sister, or any other relationship.

      Unless artificially prevented, the outcome of such a merger of Group2 spiritual fluids is typically the birth of a child who is an extension of both individuals. The Group1–Earthly spiritual fluids provide the cell and organ engineering that is needed, depending on the makeup of the man and woman (commonly known as genetic traits). The child may exhibit any physical ailments that exist in the parents; for example, if either of the parents has diabetes, there is a good chance that the child will contract diabetes at some time. In addition to this, the Group1 spiritual fluids of the parents may not be very compatible, and the resulting child may be retarded or deformed. Such would be the case when both parents and child deserved to be in this situation for reasons pertaining to divine justice. The Group2 spiritual fluids determine the character of the child. Because some of the parents’ Group2 spiritual fluids merged to produce the child, the child will exhibit some of the traits (spiritual fluids) that the parents exhibit. For example, the child may pick up greed and loyalty from the father and envy and jealousy from the mother, or vice versa, or any other possible combination. Haven’t you heard the common saying “It runs in the family”? Of course, things are more complicated than this simplistic overview.

      Because the child exhibits the Group2 spiritual fluids of two souls, as it promotes the higher qualities, the child elevates the Group2 spiritual fluids of both souls. Similarly, as the child promotes the lower qualities, the child degrades the Group2 spiritual fluids of both souls. From this viewpoint, married couples should think through the matter thoroughly before deciding to bring a child into this world. The more extensions (children) of our spiritual fluids, the greater the risk of degrading the Group2 spiritual fluids. In the case of marriage between family members, as with a brother and sister, the Group2 spiritual fluids of both are extensions of the same two souls. Group1–Earthly spiritual fluids detect such a relationship, and the resulting child can be genetically deformed. In other words, for a reason unknown to us, a second-generation merger of Group2 spiritual fluids of any two souls is forbidden; this is reflected explicitly in all major religions.”

      “No one knows how marriage is going to influence your life or the many lives to come. The system of cause and effect applies no matter what. For example, if your spouse committed horrible deeds in a previous life and, as a result, he or she becomes completely paralyzed during your marriage, you may have to spend a large portion of your income on medical bills. In addition to the financial burden, can you imagine how much pain your spouse’s suffering would cause you, even though you had nothing to do with his or her past deeds? Of course, you could play it safe and never get married, but that would be a personal choice. “Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.” (1 Corinthians 7:1)”

  35. Dear Mr . Murad,

    Thank you for that perfect explanation. Everything you said made perfect sense with me. I can recall a certain Bible verse which says: “Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” It is almost coincidental that growing up my whole life I knew that premarital sex was wrong. As I returned to my spirituality I started seeing a lot of reasons why it was. I thank God that he always provided opportunities for me to say “no”. But at the same time doesn’t St. Paul glorify marriage by equating it with the union of Christ with his Church? The Bride and Bridegroom parable too that Jesus also gave also talks about this and the fact that Jesus condemned divorce, doesn’t this strengthen what real life giving love means thus showing the spiritual beauty of Sex within this context at the same time realizing that this life is not all there is?

    Also I’d like to ask, from a Daheshist opinion, is a moralistic point of view of things dangerous because it causes a lot of cases for hypocrisy and most of the time we weak mortals cannot follow the strict Law of God. That’s why St. Paul says: “But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.” So being sons in the Son we have the Christ – consciousness to naturally keep the Law. Seeing it like this, is this why the Prophets came, not just to show us how to live, but to remind us Who We Really Are so that we can become what they taught?

    Thank you and Peace.

  36. Hello Brian,
    Daheshism is not against marriage. There is a section in the Daheshist Rituals pertaining to marriage. We’ve been discussing the ideal situation, which is to refrain from any sexual activity in order to achieve faster spiritual elevation. We all know that this is not easy for most people. We know that Lord Christ refrained, and so did Dr. Dahesh. Gandhi, as well, refrained in his later life from sexual activity. Even in the case of marriage, true love and sexuality are not one and the same. You can truly love someone, yet not desire that person sexually–again, this is not easy for most people, but for those that can, the spiritual payoff could be enormous.

  37. Dear Mr. Murad,

    I believe I understand now what your saying. I just read something from Khalil Gibran’s book The Prophet about pleasure. In it he talks about how this monk asks the man about pleasure and the prophet responds by telling him that pleasure is inherently good but then he says something about the seven sisters.

    In tantra it’s believed that a human is made up of seven energy centers. The pleasure is considered lower than the first lower center. It’s the goal of the practitioner to evolve through the centers until their consciousness merges with the universe, moving away from the lower tendencies into higher ones. It’s a matter of taking something good and eventually moving beyond it into something better with deeper realities and truths that transforms their lower desires into higher ones. This is how I’m trying to understand it though.

    I do have three questions. since physical sex is a lower good why did some of the prophets partake in it? Muhammad had twelve wives and King Solomon had five hundred wives. Even David committed fornication with Bathsheba. This is something that puzzles me.

    Also why did some of the Prophets like Muhammad and David engage in violence and warfare when Jesus and Dr. Dahesh fought through nonviolence?

    And if I’m not being offensive to ask, can you or another burn a Ramz rite for me for my spiritual journey since I can’t read or write Arabic? I would appreciate it a lot.

    Thank you very much Mounir.


  38. Dear Brian,

    It is important to forsake the mundane in order to elevate spiritually. Daheshism has tremendous respect for Kahlil Gibran and he is considered as a forerunner to Dr. Dahesh, in the same manner John the Baptist was the forerunner to Jesus Christ.

    As to the issue of Prophets of old marrying multiple wives, there were many reasons. Here are some:
    -Preserving certain Sayyals (Spiritual Fluids) to help the delivery of their message–even after they are gone through lineage.
    -Some of the women taken as “wives” possess common Sayyals with the Prophet and being claimed as his wives help preserve the Sayyal from degradation and fall.
    -Yes, David committed adultery with Bathsheba, but his gravest sin was purposely sending her husband to war so that he would die. David paid heavily for his sin. As to Bathsheba, she was his in a previous reincarnation and his attraction to her was not just sexual. Had he waited until her husband passed away in a natural way or fairly in war, he could have claimed her as a wife without a problem. The first punishment was the loss of the child she bore for him, followed by the loss of his kingdom, then the loss of his eldest son.
    -There are certain things that Prophets were permitted to do that we do not know the reasons behind them. The shedding of blood by David was a necessary thing. Some Prophets come in a disciplinarian role.
