Actually almost all such Eastern martial arts, or Yoga and Meditation and etc. have background philosophies based on atheistic and non Heavenly religions, but there would be no problem for you to learn and practice the arts as long as you don't accept their philosophies and ideas, and look at it as merely a body treatment and sport.

I always admire your questions ... :) Allah is not negotiating with Iblis, he did not even accept his request. Most of the scholars see that Allah did not accept Iblis’s request, but Allah postponed him to the "appointed time" (Al-Waqt Al-Malom), which is not the time requested by the devil, Allah did that to increase his affliction and misery, and for ...
