Fenjan-i-Pak: A Moorish Banishing Ritual

(The Clean Cup)
A Moorish Science Approach to the Hermetic Banishing Ritual (rev. 12/17/2000)

(The following has been devised for the usage of those brothers and sisters of the New Current who have dedicated themselves to the Short Path. You will find very much like its GD equivalent that the elemental God Names invoked differ from those mentioned below in the analysis of the Hexad of Moorish Qualities which should be used instead when working worth the Lesser and Greater Rituals of the Hexagram. I’ve had great succcess with this ritual in both Moorish Ritual work as well as in Thelemic rites as well. – Mustafa al-Laylah Bey)

“A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct.”
– From “Manual of Muad’Dib” by the Princess Irulan

Let the Self-Owning One enter the Temple cleansed and dressed as instructed by their particular Way.

Breathe deeply and fully, bringing the Essence of that breath to the depths of the Aspirant. This Essence should be allowed to rise up and fill the Aspirant.

Facing East, the Aspirant should then proclaim loudly, ” Bismillah, Duraz Shaitaneh Jinnihah!” (In the Name of Allah, Away, Evil Jinn!)

With the right hand touch the forehead and proclaim, “Bismillah” (In the Name of Allah)

Then with the same hand, touch the sex and proclaim, “al-Malik” (The king)

The right shoulder, “ar-Rahman” (The Merciful)

The left shoulder, “ar-Rahim” (The Kind)

Then, clasping the hands together tightly, raise them, and say, “Alhamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin!” (All praise is for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!)

Facing the East, the Aspirant should trace a large Pentangle with their dagger. The Star may be any color, but green and luminous black are my chosen and preferred. While tracing this Star, let the Aspirant sing the Name, “al-Mutakabbir!” (The Greatest)

Turning to the North, the Aspirant performs the same this time singing the Name, “al-Batin!” (The Hidden)

Then, to the West, singing, “al-Latif!” (The Subtle)

And then to the South singing, “al-Zahir!” (The Manifest)

Facing East, let the Aspirant open their arms as if to take in the entire Temple. Let the Aspirant then recite the following:

“Joloyehman Israfel
Poshtehman Jibra’il
Dastehrosteman Mika’il
Datehchapeman Azra’il
Nocte satoreh misuzad dorehman panj.
Tueh Qa’abaman midrashad shish nur-i-bharandegi!”

(Before me, Israfel/ Behind me, Gabriel
On my right hand side, Michael / On my left hand side, Azrael
Around me burns the star of five / and within my Qa’aba shines the six rayed glory)

Finally let the Aspirant recite the following Surah


Bismillah ar-Rahman, ar-Rahim
Qul auzu birabil falaq
Min sharri ma khalaq
Wa min sharri ghasiqin iza waqab
Wa min sharrin naffasati fil uqad
Wa min sharri hasidin iza hasad

Let the Aspirant continue with whatever practices that they may be inspired to perform.

And for your added enjoyment:
