Satan and Quran:

the Language Game

The example of those who were given the Torah, then failed to uphold it, is

like the donkey carrying great works of literature…


Satan is a great deceiver. Satan's best game to keep the people from understanding the message of God is to keep them away from it. The Quran was revealed in Arabic but God promised to be its teacher (55:1-2), and the One to explain it (75:19).

God told us in verse 41:44 that language is irrelevant and that only the sincere ones will understand the Quran irrespective of their language. On the other hand those who are not sincere or do not worship Him ALONE will fail to understand it, even if they speak, read and write Arabic. (See 56:79) Satan designed his game to suit all kinds of Muslims to keep them away from understanding the Quran. Satan knows that reading the Quran by itself does not guarantee understanding it. Satan knows that God is in control and that no one will understand the Quran unless God lets him or her. The best trick that Satan can come up with is to get the people to believe him instead of God. Once they do, they are prevented from understanding the Quran. God does not accept any partners.

Here is the game Satan has been playing and seems effective on those who failed to worship God ALONE or accept His book ALONE:

(1) If your mother tongue is Arabic, Satan (or his troops) teaches you that the Quran is written in a very sophisticated Arabic so that you cannot understand it on your own. That you need someone who is very knowledgeable in Arabic to explain it to you. The Arabic speaking person would then give up reading his/her Quran in Arabic waiting for the chance to find this knowledgeable person.

If you ask your Arabic speaking friends how they find the language of the Quran, they will tell you, DIFFICULT. Go ahead and ask them. But what is God telling us about the Quran and the language of the Quran? (See 54:17, 22, 32, and 40). Why do they have difficulty? (See 56:79 and 41:44)
