Bahamut


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.




For the fictional dragon, see Bahamut (fiction).
Bahamut (Arabic: بهموت Bahamūt) is originally an aquatic figure of Islamic mythology, though this figure has been significantly altered in the process of modernization.
Bahamut is an enormous fish that resides in a vast sea. He supports a huge bull named Kujuta who has four thousand eyes, and the same number of ears, noses, mouths, tongues and feet. Between every one of each is a distance of five hundred year's journey. Kujuta supports on him a rock of ruby, which atop stands an angel who supports the seven earths.
Below the vast sea there is said to be a realm of air, below which there is a realm of fire. Beneath the fire lies a serpent called Falak who is so omnipotent that if it wasn't for fear of Allah, he would swallow all creation. Many variations exist on this, with some people speculating that the fire is a realm of darkness or a fathomless mist.
Modern fantasy fiction derived from the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game reimagines Bahamut as a heroic dragon; see Bahamut (fiction) for more information.
