Surprise? Shouldn't be. All information have its sources, and all information are interconnected, somehow. If you want to know everything, you have to go through everything. At least, I have to. For now. I have yet to achieve the ability to know all without going through all.
Surat 'Āli `Imrān (Family of Imran) - سورة آل عمران
Say, "O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah ." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are Muslims."
The Arabic text above clearly use the word "ahl-al-kitab" which literally means, "people of the book".
And quoting from wikipedia;
Kitab (Arabic: کتاب) is the Arabic word for book. The word is also used in the Persian, Hindi, Nepali, Azerbaijani, Kazakh, Punjabi, Urdu, Assamese (as "kitap"), Swahili (as "kitabu"), and Turkish (as "kitap") languages and in some contexts in Greek ("κιτάπι"). It is part of titles of many Arabic language books.
To the best of my understanding, the above quote from Quran 3:64, mention to those who gain understanding from books, shall came to understanding from one another. What kind of understanding? That we shall not worship other than The GOD, and not compare anything/anyone to him(uncomparable). And they shall also not put others above HIM. If any of them does not comply, simply tell them to note that, "I'm a muslim(one who submits to GOD)". So, in my very humble opinion, the satanist got a book, so I'll treat them as such of "the people of the book".
About satanism, I'll just quote;
Magus Anton Szandor LaVey (1930-1997), Founder
“....with the official title of “Magister Satanas,” ceremonial title of “Magus,” whose form of address should be “Doctor”...
Why do Satanists worship The Devil?
We don’t. Satanists are atheists. We see the universe as being indifferent to us, and so all morals and values are subjective human constructions.
Our position is to be self-centered, with ourselves being the most important person (the “God”) of our subjective universe, so we are sometimes said to worship ourselves. Our current High Priest Gilmore calls this the step moving from being an atheist to being an “I-Theist.”
Satan to us is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. We do not believe in Satan as a being or person.
From what the satanist claimed, they do not worship the devil. They don't even believe in the devil existence. They have sets of rules, statements(creeds), and sins. You can refer here;
To put it simply, the satanist encourage people to satisfy their pleasure in any way without bothering/harming others. It's actually is simple. Most of the things most religion says you can't do, the satanist says you can. They even allow killing people if that is asked of you;
"4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy."
"6. Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved."
That quote obviously masked, "You can kill(with cruelty) people if they asked for it". And i personally think they are masking a lot of other "stuff" that can blind the eyes of the commoners. They're obviously good at "ilm-ghaib"(hidden knowledge). Their words and statement is like those you can read from corporate contracts documents. And of course you can relate to the lyrics of songs, the church and the illuminati. Seriously, the church? Refer this;
"9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!"
Don't get me started with the corporate, the government, the politics. As you can all clearly see, they're all by the "Church of Satan(CoS)"'s definiton are satanist. Go have a look around yourselves and confirm it. Believe it!
It was recently made known to me about this ayat;
Surat An-Nisā' (The Women) - سورة النساء
And when there comes to them information about security or fear, they spread it around. But if they had referred it back to the Messenger or to those of authority among them, then the ones who draw correct conclusions from it would have known about it. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, you would have followed Satan, except for a few.
I did mention to you about that movie "Innocence of Muslim" in the previous post. The verse above clearly tells us about it. "they" spread the information about security or fear around. It also clearly stated that if the people(masses) referred back to the "messenger" or "uli-al-Amr", then the ones who draw correct conclusions from it(references from the "messenger" or "uli-al-Amr") would have known. And by the mercy of God, you would not follow satan, except for the few. Estimated about 10,000 satanist from billions of humans.
A lot of you may say that I'm rambling a lot. Maybe I am. So many connections to everything and everything is interconnected with each other. Or maybe that I'm just plain mad. You be the judge yourself.
Till next time. Salam.
