Salaam.
I saw that name yesterday on a post and not only was the post great, but the name

Fabulous!

I like the imagery of Scimitars defeating the enemy!

You have to enlighten all of us who are curious:
what is the X for?
Seems like it's a negative ?

Alchemist is clever, so any friend of his must be same.

Look forward to your contributions here, ScimitarEdge

Yes the word Scimitar refers to a type of Sword found primarily in the Middle East and South Central Asia.

It indirectly embodies the imagery of Muslim Nobility and the virtue of revolutionary action in the historical context of Eastern peoples resisting corruption of colonial powers, their intrusion and imperialism.

The X and the Edge alludes to maintaining a lifestyle of abstaining as much as one can from worldly poisons which a self destructive intoxication based culture strives to promote and pacify the masses with. It is comparable with the "Straight Edge" lifestyle, but is also a sign of personal, spiritual and political resistance.

Hence Scimitar X Edge.

Terrific!
You sound like my kind of person - glad you have joined.

That's my image of Scimitars too.

I have two swords, from Caucasus and ...somewhere else, I can't remember right now, crossed in an X, come to think of it, in my window as a symbolic gesture of the same type.

What's the Straight Edge lifestyle? I'm not up on current stuff.

I think part of me is simultaneously back in the days of those grand Islamic Empires...

So the X is to keep out bad things, right? That was the reasoning behind my swords being in an X.

In Contemporary North America; Straight Edge was a movement amongst Youth to stand up and repel the mainstream intoxication culture. Eventually it became a somewhat null and empty statement. But it's political and social implications are meritable and cross cultural. I believe that it's relevant for everyone.

yes the X joined together is a symbol of resistance and repelling destructive forces in your life.

Scimitar Edge,
you express yourself really well.
That's exactly it: repelling destructive forces which are like almost like tidal waves now, from the larger society and also individuals who aim to cause trouble for people trying to do the right thing. The latter are often so subtle that they are not easily recognized by the target in his or her CONSCIOUS mind.

For me, the Scimitars do the work for me on other planes of existence so I have more energy to combat the daily threats or problems.

I also like them because this is a little clue which I feel like writing, though I am sure few here in this particular group will perceive this.

There is ONLY ONE WAY to push back the Devil and his footsoldiers on earth if you live in the Western world. It's to be on an Islamic wavelength!

Why? Because the entire CULTURE is opposed to Islam. Flowing underneath all the putdowns and negative rhetoric from brainwashed individuals, from clergy, from political leaders against Islam is a huge FEAR.

It's the ONLY thing that makes them tremble. But being immature and NOT introspective, they project this fear outward onto Muslims, Islamic history, with tons of lies, distortions, invective.

As a tiny example, I recommended to a colleague attending a Christian service where there were frankly demons present, to please say Islamic prayers to combat the darkness in that Church, and the ones hovering around the people there.
She said it did work and she felt safe thereby.

Maybe these topics can be discussed at length in future threads, especially about the heavily controlled society that we all live in, and how to vanquish all this influence in one's life.

[Scimitars...!]

Welcome aboard.


Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620
