10 Planning Tips for a Successful Trip with Children with Autism

1 Shares

We recently started traveling more.  Haven’t tackled flight yet, we are still hitting the open road by car, but we are working our way up to the plane.  I am not a travel blogger, but I felt that I knew a little bit to share some tips and tricks that I have learned along the way with this whole “Hamms see the World” thing we are doing.  I’ll be documenting our journey with traveling across the states in our little (not so little) Ford.  Maybe some of the spots we visit will inspire you to get out there more too.  I know we have hidden in the house for too long, afraid to venture out there and see the world, but we are taking the chance because I know it’ll pay off in the end.  Memories made, my kids get to interact with the world, and their parents get to experience places we used to just dream about visiting. 

I hope that through our travels and sharing with others, that it will inspire other families like ours to get out there.  We need you guys out there.  I know it’s hard, but it’s going to be okay, because I’m going to help you get through it.  I wish I could physically be there to help every family individually, but I hope through our successes (and failures) that others will be like, “we can do that too.”

Let’s get into these planning tips, shall we?  

  1. Plan, plan, plan.  And then plan some more.  I’m serious, this is an important one.  As special needs parents we are always planning and preparing for the unexpected, the expected, and everything in between.  What I learned when traveling this past year is that I do the same planning I do every other day of the year, but even more.  I plan for the bad days, the good days, those half-good/half-bad days.  I plan for the unexpected, when things go wrong, and when things go the way they were planned to.  Do you know how many times we have been so thrown off our game because the day went smoothly?  I usually add extra time to whatever it is we are doing by scheduling one or two events per day, allowing an extra day or so for travel, etc.  But there are those times where everything goes so well that I am left with all these extra hours and nothing to do, and guess what happens?  That good day turns into a bad one quickly when I have nothing planned.  If your kids are anything like mine (and chances are, they are), they thrive off routine and schedules.  They need to know what is going to happen and when.  So, I now make plans for when the days go sideways, and when they go better than expected. 
  2. Take notes.   Write down all the places your family wants to visit and then grab you a snack, comfortable seat, large drink, and reliable internet.  Be prepared to spend a considerable amount of time on this one.  For every site you want to visit, find out if they have any sensory events during your visit.  Sometimes we have lucked up and visit museums during their “sensory days” or zoos during their “special needs friends” events.  This can be easily be found out by a simple Google search.  Also, don’t limit this search to just where you want to visit, search to see if there are any other special needs events in the area during your visit.  Who knows?  You may luck up and find one (or two!). 
  3. Cyberstalk that site. Next, go site by site on your list and extensively search their website up and down.  You’re looking for maps of the area, pictures, and any mention of areas that may be used a “calm down” areas for your kiddo.  Sometimes, we can make our way back to the car, but sometimes where we visit is so large that we are often a long way from our car.  You can also call the site and see if they have any areas you can dip into whenever your kiddo isn’t doing too well.  Also, while on the site, look for any disability accommodations.  If your child has mobility issues in unfamiliar and/or crowded areas, find out if the site offers wheelchairs.  Are there any sensory bags available?  These are things that should be listed on the site but if not, you should call and find out. 
  4. Check for discounts.  Sometimes, certain sites will offer discounts to those who are disabled (such as National Parks), find out what all you need to show to qualify for these discounts, and make sure to bring those items along with you. 
  5. Try to avoid the busy periods.  Google has this little nifty feature on their site where it will tell you what the busy times are during the week for whatever site you searched for.  You can get a general idea of how crowded the site will be.  Note, sometimes this feature isn’t 100% accurate, so I would call the site to find out for sure when they are the least crowded.  Also, take note of how well your child does throughout the day and in general.  If your child is okay with large crowds, then you may be okay with going during a busy period if it fits better with your overall schedule.  If your child is calmer in the mornings and amps up in the afternoons, I would aim to visit your most excited about attractions in the morning periods. 
  6. Find out the sites food and drink policy.  I know that for my kids, they need their snacks.  Sometimes we visit a place where they cannot have their snacks and we often plan to have them eat before we visit or we visit during a time when the kids are least likely to whine for snacks (in the morning). 
  7. How long will you be there? In addition to informing visitors of busy times, Google also lets you know how long people typically spend there.  I would take this time and probably double it.  This allows for those times when you have to take a break, or your child is overwhelmed and needs a break etc.  I would double the typical amount of time spent there and I would probably aim to visit no more than two sites per day.  This way your family isn’t rushed to get through each site, your child is allowed time to process everything they are seeing, feeling, and experiencing at their pace, and you aren’t tiring yourself out trying to get it all down.  We also add about 3 hours to our drive time to get to our final destination.  This allows for us to not feel rushed to get there, time for breaks, meltdowns, switch drivers, etc.
  8. Packing the “Autism Basics”. I have read many other articles on special needs travel and they generally tell you the basics (make sure you have their favorite toys, ipad, chargers, etc.), I’m not going to spend much time on this one because this is one y’all do on a regular.  So outside of telling y’all pack your kid’s snacks, toys, medication, ipad and chargers, etc. I won’t add anything else.
  9. Make social stories/schedules.  Once you have your detailed plan of attractions mapped out, make some social stories and schedules for your children to have and follow along.  Tape the schedule to the back of front seats or on the doors of the cars (on the inside).  If your kiddo has a tendency to mess those little schedules over (like my oldest, he will sometimes eat them), I highly recommend making copies and keep them in the glove compartment.  Put everything on that schedule, from stops along the way, bathroom breaks, stretch breaks, etc.  Even if you think your child doesn’t understand, still do a schedule, I have learned that our children understand a lot more than we give them credit for.  If you have an iPad, you can search for picture scheduling apps on there.  I haven’t found one that I like yet.  I simply Google whatever images I need.  Or I will screenshot images from my son’s communication app and input them into Powerpoint or Word and I create my schedules in there.  I then print them on cardstock and laminate them.  I might make a more detailed post on how I actually make them.
  10. Okay, medication. I know I said I wouldn’t mention medication, but I just have to say this, DO NOT use your vacation as the time to try your child on a new medication or new routine for current medication.  I learned this the hard way, multiple times (I don’t always listen to my own advice).  If you have several months until it’s time for you to hit the road (or air), then use this as the time to try a new medicine or adjust dosages, etc.  Just be sure to make note of everything from their behavior before and after administration, the time given, dose, when it appears to kick in, when it appears to wear off, etc.  This medication log is good to have even when you aren’t traveling.  If you aren’t planning on change medications, you would use this log to help you plan your activities throughout the day.  If you know one of your child’s medicines make him sleepy for about an hour after he takes it first thing in the morning, then plan to start your first activity after this drowsy period.  Both of my boys take medicines for their mood and hyperactivity, but it takes about 30-45 minutes to kick in, so we don’t ever plan to be somewhere until about an hour after they take it.

I think I touched on everything involved with our planning of trips away from home.  Like I said before, I’m not a travel blogger, so I cannot offer you the best deals or discounts, but if I do come across some really good deals I will be sure to pass them along.

Planning is key to a successful trip, especially for those with special needs loved ones.  I hope that you could use any of these tips.  I am still working on tackling every state (with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska) with my little family and our Ford.  I talk more about that in this post.  I was/am still scared shitless about doing it, but I’m going to do it anyways.  My boys are of this world, they belong in this world, and they have every right to an active participant of this world and be among its people, regardless of how some feel about it.  So, take your child to that zoo or park or beach.  Ignore the stares, dismiss the comments, you’re allowed to be there.  And so are your kiddos.

Happy travels.

XOXO,

Tiffy

One thing I’ve got noticed is the fact that banks and financial institutions have in mind the spending patterns of consumers and understand that many people max away their cards around the getaways. They smartly take advantage of this specific fact and then start flooding ones inbox along with snail-mail box along with hundreds of no interest APR card offers shortly after the holiday season comes to an end.

  45. Hi,

    I want to share some very important news that has been spreading around the internet concerning our future well being.

    We are approaching a future of a one-world cashless society in which they will mandate us to have an RFID microchip implanted in our body. This chip will contain all our personal information and we will lose much more of our privacy because of the tracking capabilities.

    More importantly, did you know that this was all prophesied almost 2000 years ago by a man named Jesus? Don’t believe me? Keep reading…This may be the most important thing you will ever read.

    “He(the false prophet) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18).

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Why? Because we could still buy or sell without receiving the mark among one another if physical money was still currency. It logically deduces itself to this reason.

    This mark could not be spiritual, because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual, it would just say in the forehead.

    This is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning this RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this RFID microchip in the 90’s.

    Mr. Carl Sanders attended seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the CIA to discuss plans on how to bring forth this one-world system. The US government commissioned Carl Sanders to engineer a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world-a microchip that could be placed under the skin with a hypodermic needle(a quick, convenient method that would be slowly accepted by society).

    Mr. Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by US tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible(Carl was not a follower of Christ at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    These researchers discovered that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two locations Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable spots for rapid, consistent temperature fluctuations in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The RFID chip is around seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this microchip.

    Mr. Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped engineer, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is a word in the original Greek language. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick. Carl believes this is referring to the use of a hypodermic needle being poked into the human flesh to insert the microchip.”

    Carl Sanders spoke with a doctor asking what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor answered by saying a terrible sore would appear in that location. This is what the book of Revelation has to say:

    “And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    The Bible tells us we cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast, or the number of its name. This number is identified as 666. The Bible tells us to calculate the number 666. How do we calculate 666?

    This is where it gets really interesting. Calculating the number 666 has been long debated throughout the centuries, but has now been revealed in these last days by God. What I will show you confirms itself with the Bible the true meaning to calculate 666.

    Throughout the Bible, God uses the number 3 as confirmation of things. Here are a few examples:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    Now what is interesting is the the mark of the beast is decribed in detail in three seperate verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists three different examples of the given topic. The last three being the number 6 being used three times in a row. This is a key point to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only logical option is 6+6+6=18. What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark of the beast. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between the 6’s are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Add both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all three numbers by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around in all three possible combinations, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is interesting about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was orignally written in Greek. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the same exact formula to get the number 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.

    With using the same formula of counting by adding the “+” symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?

    Another interesting point to note is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters.

    Could this be the name of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that is identified by 18 characters? This would fit scripture that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right hand or forehead, and that it also contains the number of the beast, during a future cashless money society.

    Go to: http://biblefreedom.com to see all the proof!

    The Bible warns us in the end times that a false prophet will rise up doing miracles to deceive many to receive this mark:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    No matter the cost, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We are living in very prophetic times with major Biblical prophecies being fulfilled. When Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as captial of Israel in December of 2017, this was a big step to bring about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Bible tells us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    In the Islamic religion, they have man called the Mahdi, known as their messiah who they are waiting to appear. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had strange dreams about him. He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    His real name is said to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name changed to Barack Obama. But why?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the word Barack means “lighting”, and the use of Bama (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights”” of heaven.

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whoever seats himself in that Third Temple in Jerusalem declaring himself to be God IS THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

    Why do we need Jesus?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has brought down His moral law’s through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we may be justified, but so that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirrior of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our concious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.

    We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fullfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill.

    The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your fine, even though you are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let you go free. This is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His last words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    Now why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched and satisfied.

    For God takes no death in the pleasure of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it was poured out upon us who deserve it, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not be left in hades, but was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer see’s the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifing us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we must do is repent and trust in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we may become transformed into the image of God through faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    What are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only wants the best for us, restoring everything this world has stolen from us. This is what it means to by “holy”. To be made whole.

    He is waiting to hear from you. That God given tongue to speak language, through faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you accept the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you want His Holy Spirit living inside you transforming you into a child of God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than anyone else, even more than he spoke about heaven?! For this very reason He came to die for us, to rescue us from this place that we deserve.

    He describes hell as a real place where,

    “Their worm does not die And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44)

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    Out of all the world religions, how can we be sure the Bible got it right? The scientific data has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning in which space, time and matter were created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it right that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it also states in 11 different places that the universe is expanding thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.

    Did you know that the real Noah’s Ark was discovered where the Bible told us it would be with the correct dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of Sodom Gomorrah and the Exodus account of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is the most translated and read book in the history of the world, full of predictive prophecies, matching what we find in the book of nature. Wouldn’t you expect God’s word to be so?

  73. How has your day been going?

    I want to share some very important news that has been spreading throughout the internet concerning our future security.

    We are advancing towards a future of a one-world cashless money society in which we will be mandated to have an RFID microchip placed in our body. This microchip will contain all our personal data and we will lose our privacy because of the tracking potential.

    Bigger news than this, did you know that this was predicted almost two-thousand years ago by a major historical figure named Jesus Christ? Don’t believe me? Continue reading… This may be the most important article you will read.

    ..”And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six” (Revelation 13:16-18 BRG)….

    Referring to the final days, this could only be referring to a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but we are on the horizon of. How come? Otherwise we would be able to buy or sell without accepting the mark of the beast between one another if physical money was still valid. It logically deduces itself to this reason.

    This mark can’t be anything spiritual, because the word references two separate physical locations. If it was to be spiritual, it would not reference two different physical locations.

    Here is where it really ties together. It is startling how precise the word of God is concerning this RFID microchip. Here are the details from a guy named Carl Sanders who worked with a group of engineers to help invent this RFID microchip in the 1900’s.

    Mr. Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order conferences with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the CIA to discuss plans on how to bring forth this one-world system. The US government commissioned Mr. Sanders to invent a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the nations-a microchip that could be placed beneath the skin with a hypodermic needle(a fast, convenient process that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Mr. Sanders, along with a crew of engineers behind him, with US grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this mission and produced a RFID microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable by way of the temperature fluctuations in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Sanders was not a believer at the time), these men spent one and a half million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient spot to have the RFID microchip placed within the body.

    Guess what? These researchers discovered that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two places Revelation says the mark will be placed) are not just the most convenient spots, but are additionally the only viable spots for constant, consistent temperature changes within the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is about 7 millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the dimensions of a grain of rice. It is capable of holding many pages of data you. All your common history, work information, crime history, health data, and financial data can be stored on this microchip.

    Mr. Sanders believes that this microchip, which he remorsefully helped bring forth, is the “beast’s mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which is defined as a “scratch or etching.” It’s also fascinating to notice that the number 666 is a word in the original Greek. That word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” additionally meaning “to stick or prick. Carl believes that is alluding to using a hypodermic needle being poked in a person to insert the microchip.”

    Carl Sanders reached out to a doctor asking what would occur if the lithium contained in the chip leaked into the body. The physician answered by saying a terrible sore would arise in that location. This is what the book of Revelation has to say:

    “And the first went and poured out his bowl into the land— and a bad and evil sore came upon the people having the mark of the beast and the ones giving worship to his image” (Revelation 16:2 DLNT).

    The holy scriptures tell us we cannot buy or sell without having the mark, or the number of its name. This number is identified as 666. Scripture tells us to calculate the number 666. How do we count 666?

    This is where it all tops off. Calculating the number of the beast 666 has been long debated throughout the centuries, but has finally been made known in these final days by God. What I will show you establishes itself with the holy scriptures the real meaning to count 666.

    Throughout the Bible, God uses the number three as confirmation of things. Allow me to share some examples:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    What is interesting is the the mark of the beast is described in detail in 3 distinct verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists 3 different characteristics of the given topic. The final 3 being the number 6 used 3 times in a row. This is a key point to solving how to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count the number 666? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Recall back to my past key point about God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the most rational way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. It is not sensible to count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also take us back to the beginning. We are not able to count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only rational option is 6+6+6=18. What is interesting is that the verse that tells us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the 3rd verse out of three verses that describe the mark. Now what is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a combined total of 3 possible combinations) for moving the “+” symbol in between the sixes are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Add both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being mentioned in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    If we add up all three values by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around in all three possible combinations, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is fascinating concerning the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb of God being the Son of God, Jesus.

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Don’t forget that this was the same formulation to get the number 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It’s perpetual.

    With using the same formulation of counting by adding the plus symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a manner?

    Yet another interesting point to note is that if you add up all of the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? May this be a sign that we need to add up three sixes rather than perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what might this suggest? Well we all know in this world we’re identified by numbers in various forms. Starting from our birth certificate to social security, also with our drivers license, being recognized founded on a system of ruler ship. So it is plausible that this RFID microchip will comprise a brand new identification that has a total of 18 characters.

    Might this be the title of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system which is recognized by 18 characters? This could match the scriptures that speaks of a mark that we ought to have to buy or sell in our right-hand or forehead, and that it also carries the number of the beast, during a future cashless money society.

    Go to: https://biblefreedom.com to see all the proof!

    God’s word warns us in the end times that a false prophet will rise up doing miracles deceiving many to acquire this mark:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    At ALL COSTS, resist the mark!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We’re dwelling in very prophetic times with major Biblical prophecies being fulfilled. When Donald Trump acknowledged Jerusalem as capital of Israel on December 6th of ’17, this was a huge step to bring forth the Third Temple foretold in the words of God.

    God’s holy Word’s tells us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    In the Islamic faith, there is a man referred to as the Mahdi, referred to as their messiah who they’re eagerly waiting to be revealed. There are a number of testimonies from individuals on-line who imagine this man shall be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had unusual dreams about Barack Obama. He got on stage proclaiming himself to be a follower of Christ with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, however it was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    His actual name is said to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name changed to Barack Obama. Why would he do this?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the name “Barack” means “lighting”, and the usage of “Bama” (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights” of heaven.

    The following day after the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the prevailing select 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s domestic state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whomsoever seats himself in the Third Temple in Jerusalem, declaring themselves to be God IS THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

    Why do we need Jesus Christ?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our own works cannot save our souls from the wrong we’ve committed. If we step in front of a judge, being guilty for committing a crime, the judge won’t judge us by the good that we have carried out, but rather the crimes we’ve committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of moral justice, how much greater a perfect, righteous, and Holy creator?

    God has brought down to us His moral regulation’s by way of the ten commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These legal guidelines were not given so we may be justified, but in order that we could see the need for our saviour. They’re the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we all know that it’s wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and son on.

    We can strive to follow all the moral laws of the ten commandments, however we will by no means catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. The same word of the law given to Moses manifested as flesh over 2000 years ago inside the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by perfectly fulfilling the commandments of God, living a sinless life that solely God may fulfill.

    The space between us and the law of God can in no way be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we’re to grab on, through faith in Him, He’ll pull us up being the one to justify us. As inside the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your debt, despite the fact that you’re guilty, the judge can do what’s legal and just and set you free. This is what Jesus did almost 2000 years in the past on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled within the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His final words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    Now why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Due to the fact that God is Holy and just, the wrath that belongs to us could not be overlooked. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it ought to be dealt with, it must be quenched and satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). That is why in Isaiah chapter 53, the place it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it satisfied God to crush His only begotten Son.

    That is due to the fact the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it was poured out upon us who’ve earned it, we’d all perish and go to hell. God created a means of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not stay in Hades, however was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now once we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer looks at the person who deserves His wrath, but the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling inside our hearts, justifying us as if we acquired the wrath we deserve, making a means of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we ought to do is repent and trust in the savior, confessing and turning from our sins. That is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, howeverrather receiving His words, taking them to heart. Where we no longer live to practice sin, however turn from our sins and practice righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we may come to be transformed into the image of God by faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who is willing to present the Holy Spirit to whoever ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    So what are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only wants the best for us all, restoring every part this world has stolen from us. That is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.

    He’s waiting to listen to you. That God given tongue to speak language, by means of faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you receive the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you need His Holy Spirit dwelling inside you transforming you into a child of the living God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than any one else in the Bible, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very reason He came to die for us, to deliver us from this place that we earned by our sins.

    He describes hell as a real place where,

    “Their worm does not die
    And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    Out of all of the world religions, how can we be sure the Bible got it all right? The scientific information has established and continues to support that the universe once had a starting point in which space, time and matter had been created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it all correct that space, time and matter all came into existence at the start of the universe, it additionally states in 7 different places that the universe is expanding 1000’s of years earlier than scientists discovered this information.

    Did you hear that the actual Noah’s Ark was found where God’s word told us it’d be with the right dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of the cities of Sodom & Gomorrah and the Exodus account of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is by far the most translated and read historical document in the history of the world, packed with predictive prophecies, matching what we find in the book of nature. Wouldn’t you count on God’s word to be so?

  74. Today, with the fast way of living that everyone is having, credit cards have a huge demand throughout the economy. Persons from every discipline are using the credit card and people who are not using the credit card have lined up to apply for just one. Thanks for spreading your ideas in credit cards.

  75. L’UFCM a constaté depuis quelques mois l’accroissement des tromperies à la « roqya ». Les témoignages de personnes victimes de ces pratiques se multiplient et présentent les mêmes caractéristiques : « Une personne vous appelle et vous propose une séance de « roqya » gratuite. Cette personne vous propose de rappeler un numéro prétendu gratuit, souvent un numéro commençant par 0 800… » Mais, dans les faits, cette prestation est loin d’être gratuite, puisque la conversation est facturée à vos frais et à votre insu. Au-delà de l’aspect juridique qui est traité à ce jour par le pôle juridique de l’UFCM[1], ce procédé soulève la problématique de sa conformité au Coran et à la Sunna. En effet, la « roqya » peut se définir comme une thérapie qui permet de soigner les actes de sorcellerie, de mauvais œil et également de se protéger contre ces derniers. Par conséquent, est-il possible de la pratiquer par téléphone et quelles sont les exigences édictées par le Coran et la Sunna ? Nous présenterons ainsi successivement les conditions liées au soignant (I), les exigences relatives à l’environnement où est réalisée la « roqya » (II). Nous aborderons ensuite la question de la gratuité de la prestation ou de sa contrepartie financière et enfin les conditions dans laquelle elle est réalisée (III). I- Les conditions liées au soignant Souvent la « roqya » est perçue comme une pratique dispensée par un tiers. Or, il est essentiel de rappeler et de souligner un fait important : la meilleure des « roqya » est celle que nous dispensons nous-mêmes à travers le « dhikr » et la récitation du Coran. Ainsi, pour se prémunir des maux liés au mauvais œil ou à la sorcellerie, il convient régulièrement de lire le Coran et faire des invocations notamment celles du matin et du coucher, de réciter régulièrement la sourate « La vache », de renouveler son intention, de placer la certitude dans son cœur, d’effectuer ses prières etc., et surtout de demander à Allah la meilleure des protections. Toutefois, dans certaines conditions, il est nécessaire de recourir à un soignant. C’est à ce stade qu’il convient d’être vigilant. Il ne suffit pas de se rendre auprès d’une personne qui se présente avec la qualité de cheikh ou d’imam pour accepter de lui confier cette pratique. Comme pour tout procédé et encore plus lorsque cela relève de considérations religieuses, il est important de bien choisir son soignant car ce dernier est tenu de posséder des qualités bien affirmées. La maîtrise du Coran et des traditions prophétiques en la matière est une condition sine qua none, mais insuffisante. La personne doit également avoir des notions de psychologie afin de déterminer la part de sorcellerie et celle de troubles psychologiques fréquents chez les patients. La personne doit posséder une bonne hygiène de vie, notamment spirituelle puisqu’il n’est pas inutile de rappeler que le succès de la « roqya » dépend de Dieu. Ces critères sont difficilement évaluables, surtout par une personne qui est affectée par un mal-être, quelle que soit sa source. C’est pourquoi les proches doivent accompagner la personne dans la recherche d’un soignant qualifié et reconnu comme tel par des référents religieux de la localité (imam, responsables associatifs, etc.). De manière générale, le soignant doit posséder des qualités déterminées que nous pouvons synthétiser de la manière suivante. Il doit : être en capacité de lire le Coran, croire avec certitude au Coran, être empreint de piété, connaître les pièges et les caractéristiques du diable et des djinns, connaître la méthode prophétique de la « roqya », disposer de connaissances de base en psychologie, avoir la conviction que le succès de sa thérapie dépend de Dieu. A l’exception de la première exigence, il semble difficile de vérifier les autres conditions dans le cadre d’un entretien téléphonique avec une personne que nous n’avons jamais rencontrée, même si elle se présente sous le titre de « cheikh » ou d’un imam. Par conséquent, ces conditions soulignent une première limite quant au recours à la « roqya » par téléphone. Par ailleurs, à l’instar de tout médecin, le soignant doit, avant de prodiguer des conseils ou une médication, procéder à une consultation. Ainsi, un environnement adéquat est indispensable pour la réalisation d’une « roqya ». Il est enfin inconcevable qu’un médecin puisse vous affirmer par téléphone connaître votre maladie et attester pouvoir vous guérir. Vous auriez plus que des doutes sur ce prétendu médecin. II- Un environnement propice et la réalisation d’une consultation préalable à la réalisation d’une « roqya » Il est intéressant de noter que, dans son ouvrage « Comment se protéger des djinns & satan », Wahîd ‘Abdussalâm Bâli évoque l’importance du climat pour réaliser une roqya[2]. Ainsi, il expose les points suivants : « 1. Préparer le climat adéquat en faisant par exemple sortir les images et les statues de la pièce où on va soigner le malade, pour permettre aux anges d’y entrer. 2. Débarrasser le sujet de tout ce qu’il peut porter sur lui comme talismans ou amulettes et les brûler. 3. Éteindre tout ce qui peut émettre le son de la musique et des chants. 4. Vider le lieu de tout ce qui comporte une infraction à la shari‘a à savoir, par exemple, la présence d’un homme qui porte de l’or ou une femme qui ne porte pas le voile légal – al-hijab. 5. Donner au malade et à sa famille une leçon de dogme de façon à ce que leurs cœurs ne soient pas attachés à un autre qu’Allah. 6. Leur faire savoir que la façon de soigner est différente de celle des sorciers et des charlatans et que le Coran recèle guérison et miséricorde, comme l’a informé Allah le Puissant et le Majestueux. 7. Diagnostiquer son cas : pour cela poser des questions au malade pour s’assurer de la présence de tous les symptômes (…) ». Or, dans les témoignages communiqués, l’interlocuteur qui se présente comme soignant ne pose aucune question aux personnes. Il débute ainsi la « roqya » directement par une récitation du Coran. En outre, il est intéressant de souligner que dans l’un des témoignages communiqués à l’UFCM, l’interlocuteur demandait à la personne de remplir successivement des verres de lait, d’huile, d’eau etc. et de les poser par la suite sur la table de la salle à manger. Au point que la personne s’est retrouvée avec une multitude de verres posés sur la table. Le comble est que la personne ignorait ce qu’elle devait en faire lorsqu’elle a pris conscience de la tromperie. Nous constatons par conséquent qu’une « roqya » ne peut être réalisée dans un environnement quelconque. En effet, une procédure de diagnostic est essentielle. Nous pouvons à titre d’exemple faire le parallèle avec un rendez-vous chez le médecin ; ce dernier ne peut vous prescrire une ordonnance sans au préalable vous avoir ausculté et interrogé sur les différents symptômes que vous ressentez physiquement. A défaut, au lieu de guérir vous allez aggraver vos maux. Cette attitude vigilante du médecin traitant doit se retrouver lorsque nous envisageons le recours à une « roqya ». Pour illustrer ce propos, nous citerons l’exemple de l’anthropologue, spécialiste de l’islam européen, Farid El Asri, chercheur associé au Centre Jacques Berque, qui nous rapporte une situation alarmante suite à une « roqya » : « Une jeune femme en Belgique (…) est morte suite à une tentative d’exorcisme. Pendant les séances, les fkihs (imams) utilisent normalement de l’eau « coranisée ». Pour cette jeune femme, prétendument stérile, les exorcistes ont carrément plongé son visage dans l’eau et quand elle tentait d’en sortir pour respirer, les guérisseurs estimaient qu’il s’agissait du jinn qui l’habitait et ils replongeaient son visage dans l’eau. Pendant le procès, la famille de la défunte s’est présentée comme musulmane et a accusé ces pratiques d’être extérieures à l’islam quand les guérisseurs estimaient qu’ils avaient simplement fait ce qu’ils pouvaient. Le fait de recourir trop systématiquement au fkih risque également de faire passer une crise d’épilepsie, par exemple, pour une crise de possession. »[3] Nous allons aborder enfin la dernière problématique, celle relative aux honoraires du soignant. III- Les honoraires du soignant Le Prophète, bénédictions et salut sur lui, « a agréé les Compagnons qui ont été payés pour la roqya ». Il est dès lors autorisé de rémunérer un soignant en contrepartie d’une prestation. Toutefois, cette rémunération doit être raisonnable et surtout clairement définie avant le traitement. En outre, nous ne pouvons que souligner et rappeler que, si la roqya est réalisée dans un cadre sérieux, il convient de procéder à toutes les déclarations administratives. Comme pour tout contrat, vous devez exiger un document écrit et le praticien doit préciser quels sont ses engagements exacts afin d’éviter tout litige postérieur. Malheureusement, tous les témoignages transmis à l’UFCM soulignent que l’interlocuteur insiste à plusieurs reprises sur la gratuité de la prestation. Or, dans les faits, cette dernière est payante puisque le coût de la communication est surtaxé. Ainsi, l’une des victimes qui nous a contacté, s’est retrouvée avec une facture téléphonique (hors forfait) de 1800 euros. Par conséquent, nous constatons que ces « roqyas » gratuites sont fondées sur la technique dite du « call-back » qui consiste à amener une personne à rappeler un numéro surtaxé, information qui lui est bien évidemment dissimulée. Une « roqya » peut être payante à condition de respecter un cadre prédéterminé, fondé sur l’information et la transparence des honoraires. En conclusion A la lumière des développements susvisés, l’UFCM appelle d’une part à une régulation du métier de la pratique de la « roqya », d’autre part, à la vigilance de chacun à ne pas céder à la tentation d’une « roqya » qui ne serait pas réalisée dans les conditions requises et qui pourrait produire des effets inverses. Au-delà du cadre spirituel ou juridique, les divers témoignages reçus et étudiés par l’UFCM ne peuvent pas nous laisser indifférents à la question suivante : pourquoi des personnes sont-elles amenées à accepter aussi facilement une « roqya » par téléphone ? Est-ce la gratuité qui a déterminé leur choix ? Certes le mal-être produit par cette société est de plus en plus grand. Nous vivons une époque où les êtres sont de plus en plus coupés des signes de Dieu et vivent un rythme de vie effréné. Ces affaires sont révélatrices des maux les plus profonds qui touchent la communauté musulmane. Par ailleurs, comme l’ensemble des rites islamiques (hajj, halal, pompes funèbres) censés nous rappeler les limites qui déterminent la voie vers Dieu, nous constatons que leur marchandisation trahit de plus en plus leur vocation première. Suffit-il qu’un interlocuteur se présente à nous comme un « cheikh » ou un imam et qu’il nous propose une « roqya » gratuite pour l’accepter aussitôt Ne devrions-nous pas tous nous interroger sur le fait qu’il y ait des musulmanes et des musulmans aussi isolés et aussi ignorants de leur propre religion pour être trompés aussi facilement ? Sommes-nous devenus si dépendants des Hommes que nous en oublions de nous adresser directement à Dieu pour solutionner nos malaises ? Autant de questions que chacun d’entre nous a la responsabilité de se poser. En effet, aucun de nous ou de nos proches ne sont à l’abri d’une telle tromperie. Il convient enfin de rappeler que la « roqya » est un remède précis et qu’elle ne peut se faire que sous certaines conditions et surtout qu’elle demeure l’exception à la règle, qui est de toujours s’adresser directement à Dieu. Avant de recourir à une « roqya », il convient de faire une introspection sur ses propres pratiques cultuelles et de revenir.
