Sharia El-Sama is the Road of Heaven for modern Islamic Kindred.

OverviewEdit

Back in the days when vampires still walked on the spiritual Roads, the Sharia El-Sama was known as the Tariq El-Sama. In these days, the Ashirra sect ruled over the islamic lands under the leadership of Mullah Suleiman ibn Abdullah, one of the disciples of Muhammad himself. As Islam began to split into different denominations, like Sunni, Shi'ite, Suhfi and similar movements, and the Golden Age of Islam ended, the Ashirra lost much of their power. By now, the main goal of the remaining few Elders who practice the Sharia El-Sama is to protect their religion against intruding supernaturals and keep their lands safe.

The Sharia El-Sama teaches the Five Pillars of Islam, and believe that through honest repetance, a vampire can gain absolution before Allah. As Islam teaches moderation, not denial, the urges of the Beast is given a certain latitude, in order to avoid that it builds itself up. Although adherents of this path generally avoid murder, slaying beings who spread corruption (called taghut by the Ashirra) or killing in "times of war" is allowed.

EthicsEdit

  • Do not feed from an unbeliever.
  • When feeding from a believer, he must not be slain or left too weak to perform his daily duties to God.
  • It is preferable to feed from animals, but Ashirra must never feed from pigs.
  • Do not Embrace an unbeliever.
  • Do not Embrace a believer unless he has given his consent.
  • The blood bond is a form of slavery. Ensnare only non-believers in this trap. If one under the bond shows piety toward God, free him.
  • The enemy has many servants who would prey on believers. Defend those who follow God’s law.
