Assalamu aleikum warahmatullah wa barakhatuh

I was casually browsing the internet when I found a link to someone asking questions about Sabians, so I thought I would stop by for a while.

The best description I have found online is at Islam Q&A, but sebomenoi.com is also good.

I hope that I can make some good Muslim friends and eventually find a nice Sabi girl to marry because although Sabi women are allowed to marry Muslim Men Sabi men are not allowed to marry Muslim Women.

P.S. When I made my profile I was sad to see that in the drop-down menu for religion, Sabi were not listed. If it is possible to add in I would be very happy.

Thankyou Islamgyal,

Your reply was faster than I could put up my P.S.

In answer to your question, this
http://63.175.194.25/index.php?ln=en...QR=49048&dgn=4
is the description on Islam Q & A which so far I have found to be the best/most objective description online.

Thank you Devoted.

BTW may I ask if you are a muslim sister or whether simply you generally follow a muslim way of life like Sabi`een. In which case are you also a Sabi? I ask this because I noticed that you did not select muslim sister on your profile.

welcome to LI forum!

Allah talks about the Sabians in the Quraan (Surah Baqarah, ayah 62)

Although this was accepted before the advent of Muhammad(SAW) and Islam...Our religions are very similar....I hope we can bridge these simliarities and hopefully you will find your way to the truth.

Ameen!

Indeed your words are very wise. The difficulty this time will be in bridging the similarities and not the differences, as I have often realised in the past. It is easy for a muslim to accept a Jew or a Christian as vastly different, but much more difficult to accept a Sabi as quite similar (much more peer-pressure/compulsion upon us). I personally believe that this is why sects have developed in Islam because Sabis who were not ready to become Muslims (I should mention BTW that we also call ourselves peacemakers which is spelled the same way as Muslim in arabic) were preassured into becoming Muslims before they had proper understanding and so they were inclined towards Bidah resulting in new religions like Bahai and Sikhism at one end for example and numerous sectarians like "progressive islam" polluting orthodoxy at the other end. If I personally had the power to reverse the damage I would not hesitate, since it would have been better for such Sabis to die on a journey in the right direction than to die upon arriving at the wrong destination.

it is very good indeed for you to hope for my guidance Iqram. Jizakallah Khair Wa Salaamu aleikum warahmatullah wabarakhatuh.

Your warm greetings are most welcomming, and i am sorry for the delay.

By the way if anyone says that sabis follow "sabianism" please correct them that the correct word is Sibghatullah even though we call our <b><u>Law</b></u> Alislam. Of course Sabis respect the fact that Muslim brothers and sisters call their religion Islam, and so as not to cause any misunderstandings, I will try not to use the arabic word for Sabi`ah Hunafa` <b><u>Law</b></u> on these pages again.

Also I don't want to cause any offence by butting-in on just any discussion so I wonder if anyone could suggest which topics perhaps a Sabi perspective might be particularly appreciated -if any at all. Likewise, which topics that it might be felt a Sabi perspective might not be appreciated much.

Jizakallah Khair.

Salaam Tagrid,

There have always been both men and women who are Sabi in the world.

Sabi comes from the word Sibghat which is related to the word Saba`a. Apparently it came to Arabic through Aramaic from the Greek root "Seb-" originally meaning "to fall back in awe" and describes the way someone must perform the first Ghusl if they leave paganism behind to become a Sabi. The symbolism is to do with the way the renaisance of the world through the waters of the deluge in the time of Noah (SAW).
