Satan: The Master Hypnotist

the client and himself, to produce the desired effects. Our concern here is with the Master Hypnotist who misleads humanity en masse. The Master Hypnotist also gains the trust of his subjects. But, unlike human hypnotists, he is invisible!
Satan and his tribe can see you while YOU DO NOT SEE THEM. We have assigned the devils as companions to those who refuse to believe. (7:27)
Satan meets the qualifications of a hypnotist because he knows when and how to make his suggestions, according to a person’s mind, character, desires, and habits. He has considerable knowledge of human nature, and he has thoroughly succeeded in rendering millions of humans unable to use their minds.
(Satan said,) “I will come to them from their front, and from behind them, and from their right, and from their left. Consequently, You will find most of them unappreciative.” (7:17)
People who are unappreciative of God are hypnotized by Satan without their knowledge. Countless millions of people say, “I believe in God,” when in fact their hearts do not mean it. Their utterance is no more than lip service to go along with parents, friends, or the society at large. Whenever they have opportunities to break away from deception and doubt, they cling to fabricated falsehoods. This leaves them susceptible to Satan’s hypnosis. For the Master Hypnotist is given access to the person’s true intentions and innermost beliefs, not outward appearances and lip-service utterances.
By going against their God-given instinct to worship God ALONE and uphold His word ALONE (please see Qur’an 7:172), people enable the Master Hypnotist to set them up for self-destruction behind an INVISIBLE BARRIER.
Some followers of previous scriptures may wish to mislead you, but they only mislead themselves WITHOUT PERCEIVING. (3:69)
(The idol-worshipers) divert others from Qur’an, as they themselves stay away from it. Thus, they only destroy themselves WITHOUT PERCEIVING. (6:26).
As for those who reject our revelations, We will lead them on WITHOUT THEM EVER PERCEIVING. I will even encourage them; indeed, My scheming is formidable. (7:182-183)
Satan gradually instills his suggestions into the minds of his subjects; ideas counter to the worship of God ALONE. Satan hypnotizes his subjects into doing anything that reflects disbelief, idol–worship, or hypocrisy.
The devil says to the humans, “Disbelieve,” then, will they do disbelieve, he says, “I disown you. I fear God, Lord of the universe.” (59:16)
A trained hypnotist slowly infuses his directives into the subject’s mind because this ‘drop by drop’ approach helps the subject understand instructions. But, in Satan’s case, it is a matter of making a person feel at home with negative prompting. God protects His sincere servants from the Master Hypnotist’s obvious and subtle attempts to hypnotize them.
You shall say, “I seek refuge in You, my Lord, from the devils’ suggestions. I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they approach me.” (23:97-98)
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE
MASTER HYPNOTIST’S SUBJECTS
Hypnotized people, those who fail to devote their worship to God ALONE and uphold His word ALONE, exhibit unusual behavior because they are completely out of touch with their own minds. They have submitted their mind and their will to Satan by setting up the words of men to rank with the word of God; they have set up their scholars and religious leaders as gods beside God (please see 9:109). They lose all contact with reality except through Satan’s suggestions. It is a common phenomenon that we show someone clear Qur’anic assertions that Qur’an is “complete, perfect, fully detailed, and shall be the sole source of religious guidance”, only to discover that the person is totally helpless; unable to see or accept such Qur’anic truths.
When told, “You shall follow these revelations of God,” they say, “No, we shall follow what we found our parents doing.” (2:170 & 31:21)
It is now obvious that such persons have submitted themselves to Satan, the Master Hypnotist, and that he fully controls their minds, their eyes, and their hearing. Thus, they cannot think, see, or hear anything on their own. The Qur’an explains this strange phenomenon very clearly in 17:45 and 18:57. The invisible barrier mentioned in 17:45 is the hypnosis inflicted upon those who refuse to believe Qur’an and submit to its truths.
Shown below are eleven descriptions of persons under hypnosis (Hollander, B. “History and results of hypnotism.” In search of the soul. New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., 281 – 296).
