Satan: The Master Hypnotist
Dr. Douglass Brown
Why does man deny God’s profound signs within himself and throughout creation? Why did early peoples deny the miracles God sent to them? Why do most people prefer innovations, conjecture, opinion, and tradition over the sure guidance of the Quran? Why have Muslim religious leaders attempted to ignore and belittle the irrefutable miraculous code discovered in the Quran? Why have Muslim religious leaders made such absurd claims as “the Quran does not contain 114 chapters” and “the Basmalah does not consist of 19 letters?”
The answer is: The majority of humanity has given itself over to Satan, the Master Hypnotist. In keeping with His plan to crush all doubt in the hearts of sincere believers, God has made this answer even more overwhelmingly clear. God granted Satan power to hypnotize the descendants of Adam who choose Satan’s point of view, namely, that “God Alone is not enough.” This power is given to Satan under one crucial condition: Anyone shall snap out of the hypnotic trance upon deciding to worship God alone. Such freedom of decision shall be preserved under all circumstances.
The Master Hypnotist’s effectiveness lies in the fact that the majority of humans have chosen to remain under his domination and control.
He (Satan) said, “My Lord, since You have willed that I go astray, I will surely entice them on earth; I will send them all astray. Except those among Your worshipers who are devoted absolutely to You alone.” He (God) said, “This is a law that is inviolable: you have no power over my servants; you only have power over the strayers who follow you.” [15:39-42]
Satan advises his “Muslim” allies not to accept the Quran alone. He tells the “Christians” to accept Jesus as God or son of God. He tells them to limit the extent that they will believe everything in the scripture. And Satan instructs the humans to resist the signs of God.
As soon as the human chooses NOT to uphold the Word of God ALONE and worship God ALONE, the Master Hypnotist robs and strips the human of his mind. Satan even makes his followers believe that they are guided.
He (God) guides some people while others are committed to straying. They have chosen the devils as their masters, instead of God, YET THEY BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE GUIDED. [7:30]
How Satan hypnotizes humanity
Hypnosis is a trance-like condition characterized by an altered state of consciousness, diminished will power, and an increased responsiveness to suggestion. People differ in their suggestibility to hypnosis. A person cannot be hypnotized against his will; he must obey the suggestions of a hypnotist. Hypnosis has been employed to help people with physical and psychological diseases, as well as for harmful purposes. An effective hypnotist is skilled in gaining the confidence of his clients. He knows that ‘it takes two’, 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.
…He (Satan) and his tribe can see you, while YOU DO NOT SEE THEM. We appoint the devils as companions of those who do not believe. [7:27]
Satan meets and even exceeds 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 before them, and from behind them, and from their right, and from their left, and You will find most of them un-appreciative.” [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, people enable the Master Hypnotist to set them up for self-destruction behind an invisible barrier.
Recall that your Lord summoned all the descendants of Adam, and had them bear witness for themselves: “Am I not your Lord?” They all said, “Yes. We bear witness.” Thus, you cannot say on the Day of Resurrection, “We were not aware of this.” [7:172]
Some followers of the scripture wish to lead you astray, but they only lead themselves astray, without perceiving. [3:69]
They repel others from this (Quran), as they themselves stay away from it, and thus, they only destroy themselves with-out perceiving. [6:26]
As for those who reject our revelations, we lead them on without them ever realizing it. I will even encourage them; My scheming is formidable. [7:182-183]
Satan gradually instills his suggestions into the minds of his subjects; ideas counter to the worship God alone. Satan hypnotizes his subjects into doing anything that reflects disbelief, idol-worship, or hypocrisy.
They are like the devil: he says to the human being, “Disbelieve,” then as soon as he disbelieves, 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 the instructions. But, in Satan’s case, it is a matter of making a person feel at home with negative prompts. God protects His sincere servants from the Master Hypnotist’s obvious and subtle attempts to hypnotize them.
I seek refuge in You from the whispers of the devils. And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they come near me.” [23:97-98]
And the devil will say, after the judgment had been issued, “God has promised you the truthful promise, and I promised you, but I broke my promise. I had no power over you; I simply invited you, and you accepted my invitation. Therefore, do not blame me, and blame only yourselves. My complaining cannot help you, nor can your complaining help me. I have disbelieved in your idolizing me. The transgressors have incurred a painful retribution.” [14:22]
When you read the Quran, you shall seek refuge in God from Satan the rejected. He has no power over those who believe and trust in their Lord. His power is limited to those who choose him as their master, those who choose him as their god. [16:98-100]
(O Satan,) “You have no power over My servants. You only have power over the strayers who follow you.” [15:42]
“You may entice them with your voice, and mobilize all your forces and all your men against them, and share in their money and children, and promise them. Anything the devil promises is no more than an illusion. As for My servants, you have no power over them.” Your Lord suffices as an advocate. [17:64-65]
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 as stated in verse 9:109. They lose all contact with reality except through Satan’s suggestions. It is a common phenomenon that we show someone clear Quranic assertions that the Quran 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 Quranic truths.
When they are told, “Follow these revelations of God,” they say, “No, we follow only what we found our parents doing.” What if the devil is leading them to the agony of Hell? (31:21)
It is 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 Quran explains this strange phenomenon very clearly in verses 17:45 and 18:57:
When you read the Quran, we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier. (17:45)
Who are more evil than those who reminded of their Lord’s proofs, then disregard them, without realizing what they are doing. Consequently, we place shields on their hearts to prevent them from understanding it (the Quran), and deafness in their ears. Thus, no matter what you do to guide them, they can never ever be guided. (18:57)
The “invisible barrier” and “shield” mentioned in these verses are the hypnosis inflicted upon those who refuse to believe in the Quran and submit to its truths.
Stated 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., pp. 281-296). After each general description of a person’s behavior under hypnosis, specific examples of disbelievers’ identical behavior will be given from the Quran.
1) The subject readily accepts the hypnotist’s suggestions as fact or reality. He neither questions them nor the hypnotist.
If you obey the majority of people on earth, they will divert you from the path of God. They follow only conjecture; they only guess. (6:116)
2) The subject has his own system of beliefs and ideas that fit the desires of the hypnotist.
We have permitted the enemies of every prophet—human and jinn devils—to inspire in each other fancy words, in order to deceive. Had your Lord willed, they would not have done it. You shall disregard them and their fabrications. This is to let the minds of those who do not believe in the Hereafter listen to such fabrications, and accept them, and thus expose their real convictions. (6:112-113)
3) The subject can be made to forget his own identity, specific experiences, and whole periods of life.
Do not be like those who forgot God, so He made them forget themselves. These are the wicked. (59:19)
4) The subject can be made to believe he experienced something that he never really experienced or that never actually occurred.
Do not be like those who say, “We hear,” when they do not hear. The worst creatures in the sight of God are the deaf and dumb, who do not understand. (8:21-22)
5) The subject may make false interpretations based on false premises conjured up in the hypnotic state. Outside efforts to correct his perceptions are useless as long as he is under hypnotic suggestions.
We control their minds and their hearts. Thus, since their decision is to disbelieve, we leave them in their transgressions, blundering. (6:110)
Some of them listen to you, but can you make the deaf hear, even though they cannot understand? Some of them look at you, but can you guide the blind, even though they do not see? (10:42-43)
6) A hypnotized person can be made to think a real experience is a delusion.
We thus control the minds of the guilty. Consequently, they cannot believe in him (the messenger). This has been the system since the past generations. Even if we opened for them a gate into the sky, through which they climb; they will say, “Our eyes have been deceived. We have been bewitched.” (15:12-15)
7) Through suggestion, the hypnotist can influence and make the subject’s senses cease to function normally. For example, a person with excellent vision can be told he is blind, and he will be unable to see.
This is like the “invisible barrier” placed between disbelievers’ minds and the most obvious truths.
We have committed to Hell multitudes of jinns and humans. They have minds with which they do not understand, eyes with which they do not see, and ears with which they do not hear. They are like animals; no, they are far worse—they are totally unaware. (7:179)
8) A hypnotized person can be active, responsive, and fully involved with an idea. However, the hypnotist can command the person to be non receptive to the real meaning of specific things.
The Master Hypnotist commands some of his subjects to pretend that they sincerely accept God’s guidance in the Quran, while they really do the exact opposite.
Some of them listen to you, then as soon as they leave they ask those who were enlightened, “What did he just say?” God thus seals their hearts and, consequently, they follow only their opinions. (47:16)
9) A subject can be led to inflict pain on himself without feeling it; he can also become insensitive to any pre-existing pain.
The Master Hypnotist dupes his victims into dismissing misfortune as “signs of piety” instead of tests and/or reminders to worship God alone. In keeping with their free choice, he also makes them blind to the severe spiritual injury they inflict upon themselves by rejecting God’s assertions that the Quran is complete, perfect, and fully detailed. (6:19, 38 & 114)
If only they implored when our test afflicted them! Instead, their hearts were hardened, and the devil adorned their works in their eyes. (6:43)
10) When questioned about their incentives for acting out post-hypnotic suggestions, subjects believe they act on their own and make up plausible excuses for their behavior. Some say they feel compelled to act a certain way.
They commit a gross sin, then say, “We found our parents doing this, and God has commanded us to do it.” Say, “God never advocates sin. Are you saying about God what you do not know?” (7:28)
The idol worshipers say, “Had God willed, we would not worship any idols besides Him, nor would our parents. Nor would we prohibit anything besides His prohibitions.” Those before them have done the same. Can the messengers do anything but deliver the complete message? (16:35)
11) A hypnotist can make a subject deny his own past actions.
On the day when we summon them all, we will ask the idol worshipers, “Where are the idols you set up?” Their disastrous response will be, “By God our Lord, we never were idol worshipers.” Note how they lied to themselves, and how the idols they had invented have abandoned them. (6:22-24)
The Day will come when God resurrects them all. They will swear to Him then, just as they swear to you now, thinking that they really are right! Indeed, they are the real liars. The devil has possessed them, and has caused them to disregard God’s message. These are the party of the devil. Absolutely, the party of the devil are the losers. (58:18-19)
Hypnotized Subjects Dread Exposure by the Quran’s
When the staff of Moses swallowed the magicians’ tricks, they had sense enough to recognize that it was a great sign from God; they immediately snapped out of hypnosis.
“Throw what you hold in your right hand, and it will swallow what they fabricated. What they fabricated is no more than the scheming of a magician. The magician’s work will not succeed.” The magicians fell prostrate, saying, “We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.” (20:69-70)
The Quran’s miraculous mathematical code sweeps away all deceit and doubt about the Quran as God’s complete final message to humanity. According to God Almighty Himself, it is “one of the great miracles” meant to put all speculation, philosophizing, and doubt to rest, and to restore Islam to its original purity.
This is one of the great miracles. A warning to the human race. For those among you who wish to advance, or regress. (74:35-37)
Unfortunately, the Master Hypnotist has commanded his loyal subjects to regress; to run from the Quran’s miraculous code and from its message. Ironically, the Quran has predicted that they will run from the Quran’s miraculous mathematical code “just like the zebras flee from the lion.” (74:49-51)
…and to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, “What did God mean by this allegory?” God thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people. (74:31)
A.L.R. These (letters) are proofs of this scripture; a profound Quran. Certainly, those who disbelieved will wish they were submitters. (15:1-2)
But they are afraid and unwilling to snap out of hypnosis. So, their master has instructed them to wage their feeble and hopeless campaign to suppress God’s miracle that proves and supports His message to the world.
They want to put out God’s light with their mouths, but God insists upon perfecting His light, in spite of the disbelievers. (9:32)
Among the people, there are those who argue about God without knowledge, and follow every rebellious devil. (22:3)
The mathematical code is alerting them to the fact that they have been duped by the Master Hypnotist; that they are hypnotized. And, it is pointing out that they have perpetuated false teachings. The only way to snap out of hypnotism is to disassociate oneself from the idol worship. The idols include whatever has been designed to “supplement” the Quran, the pristine teachings of Islam revealed to Prophet Mohammed.
The messenger said, “My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran.” (25:30)
The true followers of Islam have certain, unshakable belief in God and the Quran alone. They are not hypnotized, for they have been freed by their only Lord—God—from the spell of the Master Hypnotist.
The Quran provides the “great criterion” that tells us if we are under the spell of Satan:
When God ALONE is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink with aversion. But when others are mentioned beside Him, they become satisfied. (39:45)
Satan advises his “Muslim” allies not to accept the Quran alone. He tells them to limit the extent that they will believe everything in the Quran. He instructs the humans to resist signs of God.
As soon as the human chooses not to uphold the word of God alone and worship God alone, the Master Hypnotist robs and strips the human of his mind. He even makes his followers believe that they are guided.
Some He guided, while others are committed to straying. They have taken the devils as their masters, instead of God, yet they believe that they are guided. (7:30)
[al-Anfal 8:53.17] GOD does not change what is in a people unless they themselves decide to change. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.
