What demons? The Rambam paskened that they do not exist!


Last night at the Rambam's shrine, in honor of his hilula, we had a little snack as is customary, and in our little get together we talked of a certain Nanach who had done some major segufim (self flagellation) until he began to see some of the demons that accompany people, and he began to refuse to have any dealings therefore with many people. In the middle of this one of the Nanach pointed out that the Rambam wrote that there are no such thing as demons! So I told them what is said in the name of the Vilna Gaon that obviously the Rambam did not deny the existence of demons, what he wrote was a halachic edict, a halacha of the revealed Torah to establish that no demon could have any appearance or status in the revealed world. So in the merit of the Rambam may our friend be spared the visions of the demons....
