Conclusion: Satan’s Wiles are Feeble
The information examined in this book has shown the dangerous and horrifying worldview of satanism and the ideas it is based on. One obvious conclusion to be made in the light of this information is that satanism grows and develops in any environment where spiritual values are disregarded, where religious morality is ignored, and where there is no fear of Allah or proper respect for Him.
Another important conclusion is that satanism cannot be stopped by judicial means alone. This could serve to strengthen it as a rebellious illegal movement.
Therefore, the opposition to be launched against satanism may be summarized under the following basics:
1. This opposition must be carried on most importantly in the realm of ideas. An ideology defeated in this realm is bound to disappear, no matter how many adherents it has, or how widespread it may be. For this reason, it is very important to uncover the illogicality, perversity and errors in the ideas satanism espouses. Demonstrating that satanism is made up of glittery slogans, false propaganda and empty words will prevent its gaining new adherents and permit its present members to understand the great deception they are caught up in.
2. In this struggle of ideas, the most important step must be to destroy the ideological foundations that support satanism. Obviously, no ideology can survive if its foundations are destroyed and it has nothing to hold on to. Throughout this book, we have seen that one of the most important elements that keep satanism alive is materialism; and another is Darwinism.
But Darwinism is an ideology that has collapsed scientifically; its errors have been proven many times. However, the theory is still defended in some quarters as being scientific. And to the extent that it is not shown to be a huge deception, it allows satanism and other deviant movements to continue unchecked. In this situation, a person who lacks the opportunity to investigate the matter or acts on the basis of piecemeal information may assume that Darwinism is still valid and be caught in the error that satanism has a legitimate point of departure. The only way to prevent this error is to demonstrate to people that Darwinism is a bankrupt ideology.
3. There is something else that must be done in conjunction with the above: People must be helped out of the spiritual void into which they have fallen. A spiritually aware individual who knows the purpose of life will never fall under the influence of any perverse movement. Therefore, it is necessary to tell young people, especially, about the proofs for the existence and unity of Allah; to teach them that they are responsible to Allah for everything they do; and to warn them about what they may encounter in the Hereafter.
4. In doing all this, it is very important to enlist the support of the mass media—newspapers, magazines and television—and to organize the educational system accordingly. When the press reports this absurd movement to the public, it must be careful not to spread its propaganda; it must sensitize the public by revealing all the perversions of satanism. Also, the educational system must warn students about this problem and train succeeding generations that are aware and that will not fall under the influence of such perversions. A young person who is brought up to know that life is not the product of blind chance, to recognize the power and might of Allah and to learn the moral teachings of the Qur’an, will not be seduced into such a morass.
Remember that some fall into the net of this perverse movement out of curiosity. They see it as an adventure or because they are looking for some novelty. Whatever their motives, these people obviously do not know what they are doing. They are in a spiritual void. In this situation, everyone—anyone of faith, especially—has an important responsibility to carry out in the struggle of ideas with satanism.
In one verse of the Qur’an, Allah reveals that:
Satan is your enemy so treat him as an enemy. He summons his party so they will be among the people of the Searing Blaze. (Surah Fatir, 6)
First of all, people of faith must announce this truth to everyone and warn them against this situation. They must make every effort so that people can learn religious morality and spread the moral teachings of the Qur’an, for, with Allah’s permission, the light of the Qur’an will destroy all perverse movements, satanism included, and lead people into the good and beautiful life they always long for.
Göklerin, yerin ve içlerinde olanların tümünün mülkü Allah'ındır. O, her şeye güç yetirendir.
(Maide Suresi, 120)
