The reason I am using this title is just to emphasise, them blind followers who’s attitude is simply to blind follow their gurus & Imam. And they do that so strictly as thaw, them gurus / imam are their new prophets / messengers. And no mater what fact anyone present in front of them, they simply reject it, which sometime make me wonder, has their gurus / imam puts them on some kind of magic spell or they have been hypnotised by their guru’s / imam ?
The Quran 9:34
O ye who believe! there are indeed many among the AHBARAN [scholar /teacher ] and RUH’BAN [monk/leader] who in Falsehood devour the substance of men and hinder (them) from the way of Allah. And there are those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah. announce unto them a most grievous penalty-
The Quran 14:22
And satan will say when the matter is decided: "It was Allah Who gave you a promise of Truth: I too promised, but I failed in my promise to you. I had no authority over you except to call you but ye listened to me: then reproach not me, but reproach your own souls. I cannot listen to your cries, nor can ye listen to mine. I reject your former act in associating me with Allah. For wrong-doers there must be a grievous penalty."
Anyway controlling general people faith and belief, is easy & quick way to gain power and wealth. And such trick has been played on all time by every leaders and guru’s more or less. Here are short example which we find in the story of prophet Musa [s] & Pharoah. And on that story we clearly see pharaoh is trying to hold his position by using all of his best sorcerers, yet the truth prevailed.
The Quran 7:104 -126
Moses said: "O Pharoah! I am a Messenger from the Lord of the worlds. It is not befitting for me to say anything about Allah except the Truth. I have come to you from your Lord with clear signs of appointment, therefore, send the children of Israel with me." Pharoah asked: "If you have come with a sign then produce it, if what you say is true." So Moses threw down his staff and all of a sudden it became a real serpent. Then he drew out his hand from his pocket and it became shining white to all the beholders. The chiefs of Pharoah’s nation said: "He indeed is a skilled sorcerer who intends to drive you out from your land." Pharoah asked: "So what do you propose?" They said: "Put him and his brother off for a while; and send the collectors to all the cities and summon every skillful sorcerer to you." The sorcerers came to Pharoah and said: "We must certainly have some suitable reward if we prevail!" "Yes," he answered. "Not only reward but more: you shall certainly become my favored friends." Then they asked Moses: "Will you cast, or should we be the first ones to cast?" Moses said: "You cast." So when they cast, they bewitched the eyes of the people and terrified them by a display of a mighty sorcery. We inspired Moses to cast his staff. No sooner did he cast his staff than it became a serpent and began to swallow up the creation of their sorcery! Thus the truth prevailed and all that they did collapsed. Pharoah and his people were defeated and put to humiliation, and the sorcerers, since they were professionals and knew that it was not sorcery, fell down in prostration, saying: "we believe in the Lord of the worlds, the Lord of Moses and Haroon." Pharoah said: "How dare you believe in Him without my permission? In fact this was a plot which you all had planned to drive the people out of their city, but soon you will know its consequences. I will have your hands and your feet cut off on opposite sides and then crucify you all." They answered:"We will surely return to our Lord. Look at your verdict, you want to takerevenge simply because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came before us! O Lord! Give us patience and cause us die as Muslims."
Usually when someone trying to hypnotise someone, they need to make them believed of what they uttering toward them, they also need to use either soft background music or some kind of circle pattern picture so that they can make candidate more relaxed, in order to have control over them.
Most guru’s / imam also use similar method to make their people blind following them, they use their manmade books which noting but conjecture, they repeatedly propagate their fairytale over & over, so that ordinary people start believing it blindly, and get relaxed by thinking it is the ultimate truth. But if anyone try to cross over their [hypnotise
circle pattern ]sectarian border then, they don’t hesitate to label such person anything or use abusive behaviour.
They do it because, according to their manmade law / fatwa, it is ok to kill such person who left their homemade religion, they called them “Murthad =Apostate” while we find no such death punishment mention in the book of Allah, so where did they got this punishment from ? Well guess what, they got it from the Bible, Yet Allah [swt] indicate to the opposite, see the verse below and ponder on it.
The Quran 4:137
Verily, those who believe, then disbelieve, then believe (again), and (again) disbelieve, and go on increasing in disbelief; Allah will not forgive them, nor guide them on the (Right) Way.
Now since this verse indicate, one will believe then disbelieve then believe again , Now is it possible if they ware already killed after first time they disbelieved then how does that person get second chance to disbelieve when s/he is already dead ?
Anyway them gurus /imam want to control exactly like the Pharaoh that mention on above story, where we see the pharaoh did said, he will cut right hands, feet off opposite sides and crucify them, because they left his religion, so is there any difference between pharaoh and them guru’s / imam ?
And some of their extremist blind follower react so valiantly when the book of Allah get presented to them, they get upset and either turn their back, or behaved aggressively, here are only few example which mention in the Quran about them extremist.
The Quran 2:171
And the example of those who disbelieve is as that of him who shouts to those (flock of sheep) that hears nothing but calls and cries. deaf, dumb and blind. So they do not understand.
The Quran 3:23
Have you not seen those who have been given a portion of the Scripture? They are being invited to the Book of Allah to settle their dispute, then a party of them turn away, and they are averse.
The Quran 4:61
And when it is said to them: "Come to what Allah has sent down and to the Messenger " you see the hypocrites turn away from you with aversion.
The Quran 6:4
And never an Ayah (sign) comes to them from the Ayat of their Lord, but that they have been turning away from it.
The Quran 6:110
And We shall turn their hearts and their eyes away , as they refused to believe therein for the first time, and We shall leave them in their trespass to wander blindly.
The Quran 10:78
They said: "Have you come to us to turn us away from that (Faith) we found our fathers following, and that you two may have greatness in the land? We are not going to believe you two!"
The Quran 20:100
Whoever turns away from it (this Qur'an), verily, they will bear a heavy burden (of sins) on the Day of Resurrection,
The Quran 21:1
Draws near for mankind their reckoning, while they turn away in heedlessness.
The Quran 30:52
So verily, you cannot make the dead to hear (i.e. the disbelievers), nor can you make the deaf to hear the call, when they show their backs and turn away.
To my understanding it is wrong to force or trick other into whatever I believe and it is important to respect each other belief, because end of the day each one of us will be accountable for our own action no one is responsible for others but of their selves.
At same time we must not hide any truth which base on solid proof / fact and we must not forget, we are not here to correct others only by thinking we are already in correct path, otherwise what is the points when Allah teach us the prayer on verse 1:6 “guide us to the Straight Way” therefore we must seek help and guidance from Allah all time, since satan will try to mislead us with his trick all time.
