Born in Ujungpandang in 1947, and of a Muslim backgroundIn 1974, she was lounging at her in-laws’ when she saw a ball of yellow light hovering above her head. In1995, the ball of light returned, enveloping her while she was deep in daily prayer. It was the archangel Gabriel, she said, calling her to the divine. In the nineties, she began to publicly state that the angel Gabriel had communicated with her, and she developed a small following.
Lia threw herself into a life of “mentorship with Gabriel”. In 1997, she claimed she had received a revelation: that she was Gabriel’s earthly wife and the manifestation of God in the world. Fusing Islam with selected wisdom cobbled from various world religions, she proclaimed her new belief system Salamullah.
Perhaps motivated by the religious violence and terrorism that rocked Indonesia in the early 2000s, Lia abruptly declared that world religions had become the source of all evil and that mankind needed to “transcend” religion.[cited thejakartapost.com ]
