I am so excited about my discovery of Lilith
Adam’s first wife!
Yes, he had a first wife
According ofcourse to a Jew Legend
And ofcourse, denied by Jews, Christians and Muslims
back to the reason of my excitement
I guess it is mostly because I love gossips!
(I love dirty little secrets ;))
and what’s best to gossip about, than the father of human kind?
(ok just in the eyes of Jews, Christians, and Muslims)
So I went over her wikipedia’s page, and read the whole story
and I ll summarize it here
El gesa o ma feeha ya khook (the story yo brother)
First God created both Adam and Lilith from soil
Adam and Lilith immediately began to fight
Because they disagreed who would lie bottom when they have sex!!!
Do you guys have this problem when you have sex?
I mean who would bottom and who would top?
I thought it would be a problem only in same-sex encounters
Adam claimed that Lilith body only fit for the bottom position
and thus, he proclaimed superiority
(obviously he didn’t watch any porn!)
(I personally know a couple of other fit positions, right guys?)
But Lilith refused to abide with his cocky behaviour
“You are a closed-minded, sexist, Arabic, backward mentality pig!
At this age of equality, I refuse to live my life with a man like you”
She claimed to be equal to him
Both were created from sand
(later on, Adam’s children claimed that Lilith was crearted from fire so that to demonize her)
She LEFT him!
He felt so lonely
He wept for God to bring her back
So God send 3 investigative angels to find her
Senoy, Sansenoy and Semangelof
They found her and asked her to return to Adam
She said: “OVER MY DEAD BODY”
Obviously she refused
So they gave her a choice
Either to come back with them to Adam, or to allow them to kill 100 of her children each day!
(I wonder how many children did they have? or those were from another man beside Adam? and what is this savage revenge for the ego of Adam?)
BTW, those 100 children later on were percieved as demons
That is why some people believe that 100 demon die each day!
Lilith seemed to hate Adam so much!
Because she agreed on the second condition rather than going back to him!
(I BET she was a lesbian)!
Because she got tormented later on for the death of her children
She started killing babies Adam’s descendents
and thus she appears in our Arabic culture as the Karina
Al Karina is a child stealing and child killing witch
“When the woman becomes pregnant is when Karina will cause her chaos.
She will try to drive the woman out and take her place,
cause a miscarriage by striking the woman
and if the woman succeeds in having children
then her Karina will have the same amount of children she does”
I remember my mother having a Karina!
She swears that whenever she used to get pregnant
There is a woman who used to hunt her in nightmares all through her pregnancy
trying to kill the child she was carrying
For once the Karina succeeded in killing the baby my mother was carrying
when my mother woke up in the morning, she had a miscarriage!
Does anyone know other women going through this in their pregnancy?
I am not sure how much this karina related to Lilith
and how much she is a psychological illusion rather than a true soul of Lilith hunting pregnant woman
It just makes me wonder how much truth lies in this story!
ops, I forget to mention Eve
Later on Adam begged God to give him another woman
and so God created Eve from Adam’s rib
Obviously Eve resided with her natural fit
and obeyed Adam
He never loved her the same way he loved Lilith
But both women set the original templates for women for ages
The virgin vs The prostitute
Dominated women versus liberated ones
Equality of gender and its implications…
