Warning: Philosophical Content-Explicit Ideas-May offend those easily offended. The legend of the Hassan El Sabbah is not as famous
as his garden. Sabbah was an entrepreneur of sorts
using the assassin as a tool to gain political influence throughout the Middle
East. He would use young men by making them smoke hash then allowing them to
enter his garden of earthly delights. The young men were told they had entered
paradise and would be expelled if they did not carry out Sabbah’s
wishes, which were usually to kill someone of relative importance. This tale is
not only a fictional look at Sabbah, but also a
mind-altering look into America’s drug culture and the idea of paradise. Told by a stoner, set over a thousand years ago with an Arabian
Nights feel to it, the story centers around Emir Abdullah-Harazins
(Sabbah) and his infamous garden. It is the
story of only one of his Hashishiyyins (Assassins).
