Throughout this writing, various references will be made to the Necronomicon Tradition. The meaning of this term and the responsibilities that it places upon the Initiate is an extremely important part of the work. According to H.P. Lovecraft, the term Necronomicon, is derived from the Greek term nekros (corpse), nomos (law), eikon (image): “An image of the law of the dead.” This definition could simply be applied to the work of necromancy, but we will soon see that this term encompasses so much more.
Lovecraft also mentions that the Necronomicon was originally called, Al Azif, an Arabic word that he defined as “that nocturnal sound (made by insects) which supposed to be the howling of demons.” In pre-Islamic Arabia, the term azif signified the ominous whistling of the Jinn. Parker Ryan supports this conclusion in his essay The Necronomicon Mythos According to HPL:
“Next let’s look at Alhazred’s title. HPL wrote that Alhazred’s title was “Mad Poet.” “Mad” is usually written “majnun” in Arabic. Majnun means “mad” today. However, in the eighth century (Alhazred’s time) it meant “Possessed by Jinn.” To be called Mad or Possessed by Demons would be highly insulting to orthodox Muslims. The Sufis and Muqarribun regard Majnun as complimentary title. They even go so far as to call certain Sufi heroes Majnun”
This is a clear indication that the Necronomicon is a book inspired by the Jinn. The Simon Necronomicon also supports Ryan’s observation. In the MAGAN Text we read the following concerning TIAMAT:
“Those from Without
Have builded up charnel houses
To nourish the fiends of TIAMAT
And the Blood of the weakest here
Is libation unto TIAMAT
Queen of the Ghouls”
The term ghoul, is a derivative of the Arabic ghul, meaning jinn. In the works of both Lovecraft and Simon, the Necronomicon is a book that is inspired by the Jinn.
In Arabian and Muslim folklore the Jinn are ugly and evil demons having supernatural powers which they can bestow on persons having powers to call them up. In the Western world they are called “genies.” The term Jinn means concealed, or hidden. This is the same definition that we find for the term “occult.” In Islamic theology, the Jinn are said to be made from a “smokeless fire,” while humans were created out of the Earth. Some accounts report that the Jinn were created before Adam from the “hot wind.” It is said that the Jinn live in a parallel world next to mankind, though they are undetected by humans. The Jinn are able to marry and have children, and have domesticated pets similar to mankind. Parker Ryan states the following concerning the Jinn:
“Jinn were powerful creatures of Arab myth. The Jinn, according to legend, came down from heaven (the sky) in the time before Adam. Therefore, they pre-exist mankind and thus called “Preadamites.” “Infidel pagans” worship these incredibly powerful beings. The Jinn can “beget young on mankind.” The Jinn are usually invisible to normal men. They apparently want great influence on Earth. Much of the magick used in Arab countries concerns the Jinn (protection spells against, or spells to call them up). The Jinn are thus virtually identical with Lovecraft’s Old Ones.”
Ryan points out that the Jinn can “beget young on mankind.” There are many tales throughout the Arab world of humans having intimate relations with the Jinn. A Dictionary of Islam by Thomas Patrick Hughes, B.D., M.R.A.S., states the following concerning the Jinn:
“The Jinn, it has been already shown, are peaceable. They also eat and drink, and propagate their species, sometimes in conjunction with human beings; in which latter case, the offspring partakes of the nature of both parents.”
The subject of Jinn-human progeny is highly debated amongst Muslim scholars. However, there is a great deal of evidence supporting the fact that Jinn and humans are able to produce offspring together. The religion of Islam dictates that Allah created both the Jinn and mankind, but the ancient texts of the pre-Islamic era say something different. Hughes continues on page 134:
“It is said that God created the Jann (or Jinn) two thousand years before Adam (according to some writers, much earlier) and that they are believers and infidels and every sect among them, as among men….It is commonly believed that the preadamite Jinn were governed by forty (according to some seventy-two) kings, to each of whom the Arab writers give the name Sulaiman (Solomon); and that they derive their appellation from the last of these, who was called Jann Ibn-Jann, and who, some say, built the Pyramids of Egypt.”
The Simon Necronomicon describes TIAMAT as the Queen of the Ghouls, which in light of our discussion, would also make her the Mother of the Jinn. Parker Ryan, in his essay about the Cthulhu Mythos, also asserts that ‘Lovecraft’s Old Ones are identical to the Jinn of Arab legend. This would indicate that the Elder Gods and the Ancient Ones, which appear in the Simon Necronomicon, are various classes of Jinn who were responsible for creating human beings, as presented in the Enuma Elish and other ancient mythologies. According to Arabic legend, the Jinn were Earth’s first inhabitants and will survive the race of mankind. The MAGAN Text states:
“For what is new
Came from that which is old
And what is old
Shall replace that which is new
And once again the Ancient Ones
Shall rule upon the face of the Earth!
And this is too the Covenant!”
The Christian Bible also mentions a race similar to the Jinn:
“Now the serpent was more subtile than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
The “serpent” described in the Third Chapter of Genesis must have been one of the Jinn that descended to Earth at an earlier time, as recorded for us in Genesis Chapter One:
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth…. 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
This is quite different than what is described concerning the creation of mankind, as found in Genesis Chapter Two:
“ And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. …6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. … 7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
We see some differences between the creation account in Genesis Chapter One in comparison with Genesis Chapter 2. In the first Chapter of Genesis, “man” is not created from the ground and the creation of vegetation preceded his creation. In the second Chapter of Genesis, the “human” is created from the Earth. This took place before ‘every herb of the field grew in the earth.’ Evidently, these two accounts, describe two different events, one pertaining to the Jinn and the other to human beings.
Interestingly, some Judaic Traditions hold the belief that “Cain” was not the son of Adam and Eve, but the son of Eve and the Serpent. Tree of Souls: The Mythology of Judaism by Howard Schwartz, states the following of page 447:
“When Cain was born, Adam knew at once that he was not of his seed, for he was not after his likeness, nor after his image. Instead, Cain’s appearance was that of a heavenly being. And when Eve saw that his appearance was not of this world, she said, I have gained a male child with the help of Yahweh. (Gen. 4:1)”
The perspective given by Schwartz seems to explain why Cain’s life was spared after killing his brother Abel.
“And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear…Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me…And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.”
There is another aspect of this account that has been overlooked by both occultists and scholars alike, and that is the location of where Cain was taken to after the murder of his half-brother:
“And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden….And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.”
Cain settled in the “east of Eden.” This indicates that Cain was indeed a progeny of a supernatural being because in Genesis Chapter 2:8, we read the following:
“And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.”
Cain was removed from the presence of the Adamites and was placed in the vicinity of the Garden of Eden. He also had a son named Enoch and built a city and named it after his son. If we analyze what is recorded in the creation account of Genesis, we can come to the conclusion that the Enochian language and the famous Book of Enoch describe events and occurrences that took place in the city that Cain built. The city that Cain built is what the Arabs call “Irem Zhat al Imad.” Parker Ryan makes the following observation:
“Irem Zhat al Imad” (Irem of the Pillars) is the cities name in Arabic. It is popularly believed by the Arabs that Irem was built by the Jinn under the direction of Shaddad, Lord of the tribe of Ad. The tribe of Ad, according to legend, was a race roughly equivalent to the Hebrew “Nephlim” (giants). In some version of this myth Shaddad and the Jinn built Irem before the time of Adam. The Muqarribun (Arab magicians) have important beliefs about Irem and it’s significance….The Muqarribun, whose traditions predate Islam, believe that Irem is a locale on another level of reality, rather than a physical city like NY or Tokyo. (Why Irem is important to the Muqarribun and how they use it will be more fully explained shortly.) The “Pillars” in “Irem of the Pillars” has a hidden meaning. Among Arab mystics pillar is a code name for “elder” or “old one.” Thus “Irem of the Pillars” is really “Irem of the Old Ones.”
Kenneth Grant asserts in his work, The Nightside of Eden that the City of Irem is the Garden of Eden. Regardless of where these “mysterious cities” are said to exist, such as Enoch, Irem, and etc, we can definitely say that there is a world that exists alongside the world of mankind. There is something else we need to take into consideration first. Genesis 3:15 states:
“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
The Biblical text suggests that the Jinn are cursed and will eventually be annihilated. However, this assertion seems to be a calculated response by the ancient monotheistic religions to plunder the Jinn and their progeny. L.A. Waddell mentions this in the British Edda:
“Indeed, the selfsame confusion occurs also in the Egyptian myth, wherein the Semitic priests of the Nile Valley degraded the original pure Sun-worship of Asar or “Osiris” (the Sumerian Asari title of King Dur or Tur) by deliberately introducing into it the Serpent and animal sacrificial cult of their own debased aboriginal Egyptian Mother-Son creed, which was essentially similar to the pre-Adamite Chaldean.”
Although Waddell’s observations are somewhat bigoted, he does verify the existence of the “pre-Adamite Chaldean.” The customs and rites of the “aboriginal Chaldeans” were demonized by the monotheistic religions. Waddell also asserts that the Mother-Son creed existed before the creation of Adam. Therefore, the enmity between the woman’s seed and the serpent, mentioned in Genesis, concerns itself with the battle between the Jinn and mankind. Waddell continues on page 73:
“Before the advent of Adam Thor and his Sun-cult, the chief religion in the old world appears to have been devil worship of the Serpent and Wolf cult, with its headship in the matriarch priestess Eldi…”
Waddell later confirms that his matriarch priestess Eldi was also known as the goddess El. It is no coincidence that many angelic names end with “el,” as they are of the race of Jinn and keepers of the Moon-Serpent Cult. Waddell also defines “El” as a powerful witch, a dark magician that is “naturally gifted with occult powers.” Those who are naturally gifted with occult powers are those who partake in the natures of both parents. Jinn and human, as cited earlier in the Dictionary of Islam.
We can also see resistance to the Moon-Serpent cult’s teachings in the Biblical history of Jesus. Jesus was conceived of Jinn-human relations and taught a rite that was Sumerian in origin. Evidence of this is found in his parable of the Good Samaritan. According to 2 Kings Chapter 17, Samaritans were worshippers of the god Nergal.
When one carefully observes Biblical lore, it seems that there were other religious rites that existed in Israel, which were not recorded in the Bible. For example, shortly after leaving Egypt the Israelites were said to have made a golden calf while Moses was receiving the Law. Centuries later, it is recorded in Ezekiel that the Prophet witnessed women weeping for the Babylonian god Tammuz, who was the consort of the goddess depicted as the golden calf during the days of Moses. Evidently, the Israelites weren’t constantly turning to the worship of false gods, as claimed throughout the Biblical text, since there has never been a record of any indigenous people who abandoned the worship that their ancestors laid down, so often. It seems more probable that the Bible writers excluded the full history of the religious rites that existed in ancient Israel in an effort to make a certain “priesthood” and its god appear to be superior.
The customs and traditions of the Jinn and their progeny have been demonized by the monotheistic religions of the world today. Waddell continues in the British Edda on page 175:
“The Matriarch El and her son Abel of The Garden of Eden…feverishly mustered all their swarms and allied hordes…for an overwhelming attack upon King Adam and his Goths…This epoch-making battle was the greatest of all battles in the world, as judged by its far-reaching effects; for it led to the political supremacy of Adam’s Higher Civilization, and its free propagation over the world –to its immediate extension to Carchemish or Eden, and thence down Mesopotamia to the Persian Gulf within a very short period..”
Waddell describes a battle that occurred between the “aboriginal Chaldeans, who are described as “serpent worshippers,” and the invading Sun cult. It seems that these “aboriginal Chaldeans,” led by the matriarch EL, were keepers of the traditions that the Jinn had worked so hard to establish, and some of these may have been Jinn themselves. Waddell mentions, in other writings, that the invading Sun cults captured a “stone-bowl,” in their war with the “aboriginal Chaldeans.” This stone-bowl was the central fetish of the magical rites in relationship to the pre-Adamic race. This bowl was the formulae that opened up a gate, whereby, the sorcerer could communicate with the elders of the parallel world, and benefit from the wisdom contained therein. However, there is another element that prevented the “aboriginal Chaldeans” from opening up this window and communicating with their ancestors, Christianity.
Christians are involved in a spiritual war, whether they realize it or not. Christianity, as we know it today, was developed by the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. and continued the tradition mentioned by Waddell in their persecution of the aboriginal Chaldeans. Egyptian Belief and Modern Thought by James Bonwick page 182:
“Constatine, a sun-worshipper,, who had, as other heathens, kept the Sun-day, publicly ordered this to supplant the Jewish Sabbath. To make matters worse, the Church, at an early date, selected the heathen festivals of sun-worship for its own,..”
The Christian Church was founded upon the principle structure of ancient Sun worship. Regardless of what domination that exists today, all Christian religions are guilty of honoring the Sun as a symbol of the Christ. The Christian doctrine and the epistles of the Apostle Paul are not inspired scripture, but essays concerning the worship of the Sun. The ignorant are unaware of this fact, and regardless of how many holidays, or perspectives these varying dominations of Christianity insist upon, its makes no difference at all. The only way that Christianity can separate itself from its heathen origins is by rewriting the New Testament.
There is a much deeper aspect involved in the customs and rituals of Christianity that are an apparent attack against the world of the Jinn and their progeny. The Christian Bible contains over four-hundred references to the word “wicked.” Throughout its seeming righteous damnation of the “wicked,” through prayers, scriptural texts, and etc, the naïve Christian is unaware, along with most monotheistic disciples, that the term “wicked” originates with the word wizard, or sorcerer. This means that on any given day, there are hundreds of millions of Christians pronouncing judgments against sorcerers and witches by their use of certain prayers and recitation of various scriptural texts. This is how the ancient Adamites were able to keep the doors of reality shut in regards to the Jinn. These practices were later adapted by the early leaders of the Christian Church. It is for this very same reason that we find many areas of the world, where the ancient shamanistic rites, so dear to the “pre-Adamite” tradition flourish, are also the same areas where extreme poverty and natural disasters occur. However, the doctrine of Christianity with all its hypocritical dogma, followers, and leaders, is soon to end. The Overlan Monthly printed an article in 1910 A.D. entitled God’s Chosen People; states the following on page 543:
“These beasts are to rule the world until the end of Gentile times of world domination, October, 1914, which will also be the end of the Jewish times of Divine disfavor…The Prophet pictures the end of Gentile times and the manifestation of the Ancient of Days, whose throne was like a fiery flame..,”
Regardless of the use of ancient divination to keep the door to the world of the Jinn closed, it will serve them no good. The Jinn, in the Arab world and the Necronomicon Tradition, are called “those of fire.” We find in Christian doctrine that the “Ancient of Days’ is described as seated on a “fiery throne.”
The year 1914 was a significant year not only to Christian cultists, but human society in general with the inception of World War 1. The events that followed align perfectly with Lovecraft’s description of Cthulhu rising:
“That cult would never die till the stars came right again, and the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from His tomb to revive His subjects and resume His rule of earth. The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom. Meanwhile the cult, by appropriate rites, must keep alive the memory of those ancient ways and shadow forth the prophecy of their return.”
The Simon Necronomicon properly aligns the powers of the Ancient Ones, also known as the Jinn, with TIAMAT. It is here that we see the reality and meaning of the events that occurred in 1914. TIAMAT is the primordial aspect of the goddess INANNA/ISHTAR, whose sacred number has been “15” from times memorable. The Mystery of Numbers by Annemarie Schimmel, makes the following observation on pages 213, 215:
“Fifteen represents the zenith of lunar power,..Fifteen was a sacred number to Ishtar, perhaps derived from the more important Ishtar-number, 5, perhaps also because it forms 1/4 of the 60, the number of the highest god in Babylonia. Ancient Niniveh, the city devoted to Ishtar, had 15 gates,…The Old Testament counts the generations of Israel between Abraham and Solomon as 15, and from Solomon to Zedekiah again as 15. .Fifteen plays an important role in one of the most common magical squares, which built around, the sacred 5, always offers 15 as a sum. Although legend attributes a Chinese origin to this square, it was known in Babylonia where it was connected with Ishtar. Combined with the star of Ishtar, with its 8 beams, the diagonals always add up to 15.”
When we look at the year 1914, we also see that it is the year of TIAMAT’s rising, and so it is marked appropriately as the year of Ishtar’s return. 1 + 9 + 1 + 4 = 15. The Gate of Communion has been opened once again, and the matriarch EL, is seeking to find her children, as we have seen a decline in Christianity since the year 1914 and an increase amongst those practicing the occult arts.
In a very short time, those who are of Jinn-human progeny, as well as others initiated into the “pre-Adamic” ways of the Jinn, will enjoy a return to full goodness and power and sit on thrones amongst the kingdoms of men.
The Necronomicon Tradition, as found in the works of Lovecraft and the Simon Necronomicon, are stellar systems that were established before the race of Adam, or the “sons of Marduk” and are thereby known as the Atlantean Mysteries. These workings are called Qliphotic by many occultists, but we find this system to be a cosmological treaty pertaining to the world of the Jinn. Simon states the following in the Necronomicon:
“The method of the NECRONOMICON concerns deep, primeval forces that seem to pre-exist the normal archetypal images of the tarot trumps and the Golden Dawn telesmatic figures. These are forces that developed outside the Judeo-Christian mainstream, and were worshipped and summoned long before the creation of the Qabala as we know it today. Hence, the ineffectiveness of the Golden Dawn banishing procedures against them. They are not necessarily demonic or qliphotic in the sense that these terms are commonly understood in the West, they just simply represent power sources largely untapped and thus far ignored by twentieth-century, mainstream consciousness.”
The Necronomicon Tradition has been veiled in secrecy before the race of Adam was created, and still many of us who are of Jinn-human progeny cannot reveal our dual heritage publicly. It is not so strange to our ears to know that one of our parents were possessed during the time of conception, or we may have enter the shell of the embryo from the world that lies beyond time and space, as we attempt to recollect the meaning of our heritage. It is not an easy path to follow. If you want to be effective in this work, then maximize the system to its fullest capabilities. I have seen people jump from one thing to the next, but the mastery comes in the perfection of a craft, not in the paranormal effects that a working can create. The system is one that reveals our heritage, but it is also one that initiates us into the workings of the chthonic mind. Know thyself!
