Terrorists: A Metamorphosis of

Satan or God?

by Alamgir Hussain
03 Nov, 2005
The terrorist carnages worldwide by the Islamic militants have not only been causing brutal
destruction, pain and sufferings to the victims but have also caused much distress and pain to
compassionate human beings all over the world. Despite the fact that a great number of
Muslims take pride and joy in their hearts at such incidences, which even sometimes manifest
in wild exuberance on the streets of the Muslim world, yet there are a great many
compassionate Muslims who find it equally barbaric and distressing. They even take the
liberty of giving all kinds of demonizing labels to these suicidal murderers. One Muslims
friend recently, in outrage at the terror carnage in Delhi on 29 October which killed 60 mostly
shopping women and children for the Dewali Festivity, termed the perpetrators a
Metamorphosis of Satan.

Although that was a good commentary from a Muslim for the sufferings of the Hindu
infidels, yet it begs explanation as to why these murderous human beings are to be called
"Satan"? Why the poor guy Satan has to be made scapegoat for the abominable acts of these
terrorists? Logically, there is no scope for human beings to metamorphose into Satan or vice-
versa as per the deliberations of the Bible and Koran. It is clearly mentioned in the Bible and
Koran that Man is created in the image (spirit) of God/Allah, not in that of the Satan:
Genesis 1:27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created
he him; male and female created he them.
Koran 38.71: When your Lord said to the angels; Surely, I am going to create a
mortal from dust.
Koran 38.72: So when I have made him complete and breathed into him of My
spirit, then fall down making obeisance to him.
Thus in the simplest of logic, it is impossible, according to Bible or the Quran, to
metamorphose Satan to man or man to Satan. Instead, it is clearly possible to metamorphose
man to God/Allah or God/Allah to man since both are of the same or similar image, spirit or
material.
Now let us analyze if these barbaric murderers of innocent kids and mothers in the festival
bazaar of Delhi are more similar to the spirit and attitude of Satan or to that of the God/Allah.
As per the story of the Koran, Satan is the symbol of sanity, dignity, justice and protest
against tyranny. God/Allah created angels and the Satan was their leader for his excellent
performance of the Job for eons in the heaven. The pre-human period of angels' world in
heaven is characterized by a period of great peace, order, harmony and tranquility. Now
God/Allah created this new creature, called man in Adam, in his own image/spirit and
ordered all angels to bow to this new entity in respect, submission and obedience. Although
the idiot batch of the angels quickly bowed to Adam at the order of God/Allah, Satan
(Shaitan, Iblis) did not. He wanted to know why he has to show submission and obedience!
He wanted to be sure what he was doing! He wanted God/Allah to explain but God/Allah,
instead of explaining why his new creation was worthy of a bow, became infuriated with
Satan. God/Allah, like any earthly human tyrants, such as Saddam Hussein, Hitler, Stalin or
Pol Pot, must punish Satan with the most cruel and barbaric punishment in his capacity -
which is, burning him in hellfire for eternity.
Satan was a voice of reasons.
3
He wanted to be conscious of what he does and of the
worthiness of his doings. When a father wants his son to do something new or strange, it is
expected that the father will explain the rationale to his son in advance before asking him to
do the strange job. If he forgets to explain beforehand and the son requests an explanation, he
will quickly apologize for his failure to explain earlier and would quickly do the explaining.
If the son does not become convinced by father's explanation and refuse to do the job, the
father will let go of or at best be a bit disappointed and in a couple of days, everything will be
alright. This is what is like a good, educated and civilized father in modern society. Of
course, we have uncivilized fathers in backward societies who do not to explain but only
orders to their children. If children do not follow his orders, with no questions asked, he
would punish them severely. Thus, God/Allah was not a civilized and decent kind of father
(creator) to Satan but was the latter type - an uneducated, uncivilized and tyrannical one.
Allah was not like a civilized, democratic and just administrator but a tyrannical brute who
punished Satan so severely for asking the most reasonable question. Satan deserved
appreciation for being judicious and intelligent instead of being timid and blind subservient
like the other angels. Here Satan again had shown the glimpse of as to why he was the leader
of the angels. But instead of getting a reward or applaud from God/Allah, the supposedly
supreme intelligent entity of the Universe, he got the severest of punishment imaginable.
So, condemnation of Satan by Allah on that fateful day of Adam' s creation - marked the end
of reason, sanity and justice.
3

That day marked the triumph of tyranny, injustice and unreason of God/Allah. That day also
marked emergence of a new creature, named man - who represent all the qualities of
God/Allah - including tyranny, injustice, unreason, brutality and what not. It only turns true
that God/Allah created Adam in his own image or spirit in that the qualities of man as history
has witnessed and that of God/Allah, as displayed on that fateful day, perfectly attest to that
truth. Man is truly the image or spirit of God/Allah and exactly the opposite of what the Satan
stood for.
Thus, the bombers of the 9/11 (NY), 7/7 (London), 29/10 (Delhi) and so on cannot be called
metamorphoses of the Satan. This is because of the fact, ascertained by God/Allah Himself,
that "man" was created with materials opposite to that of the Satan. Man was, in stead,
created in the image (materials?) of Allah/God himself, so the murderous bombers of these
brutal destructions must represent the image of Allah/God - not that of the Satan.
Now let us examine if these suicide bombers followed the command of Allah or the Satan.
The story of Adam's creation tells us that Allah favors those who follow his orders with
absolute obedience, like the Lemmings, to self-destruction. For example, all the angels who
followed Allah' s order to bow to Adam like the Lemmings to surrender their own prestige,
despite their impeccable service and integrity, to a creature that can be worse than any other
creature on Earth. In this present case, these murderous suicide bombers are also taking
orders of Allah like the Lemmings to their own destruction along with as many other
innocents as possible. This order of Allah has been outlined in many of his own words in the
Koran. A couple of those are presented here:
1. Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike
a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But
Allah knoweth, and ye know not. [Koran 2.216]
2. Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs
(in return) is the garden (of Paradise ): they fight in His cause, and slay and are
slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the
Qur'an: [Koran 09:111]
3. Fight those who believe neither in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that
forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor
acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book
(Christians and Jews), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel
themselves subdued. [Koran-9:29]
Thus, Allah has made fighting compulsory to all Muslims and has urged Muslims to kill and
get killed in Allah's cause (to establish Islam) until unbelievers are completely defeated,
subdued to submission and Allah's commands are being established at every corner of the
world. It is unfortunate that even ~1400 years after Allah commanded this, his command is
vastly absent in many parts of the world, including India, Europe, America and many parts of
Asia. Instead, Allah's much hated idolatry and other false Gods or complete unbelief
dominate those parts of the world. Allah must be extremely frustrated and these so-called
terrorists are only following Allah's commands to expand His supremacy to those parts of the
world. These terrorists are jumping into suicidal missions exactly like under-strength
comrades of Prophet Muhammad used to do against the dominant enemy forces of Allah and
most of the time causing much greater destruction on the enemy-side. These suicidal
murderers are doing the same with equal or greater efficiency, sometimes one of them killing
hundreds of the target enemies.
On the other hand, Satan is never known to have commanded such brutality. The pre- human
world of the angels under the leadership of Satan was a world of justice, order and tranquility.
However, Allah/God claims that Satan committed a "great crime" by leading Adam and Eve
to astray. But was that at all any kind of serious crime? God created Adam and Eve with the
desire for eating the forbidden fruit and most irrationally He commanded them not to eat that
fruit like a cruel and playful tormentor - not like a loving and caring father. All Satan did was
to convince Adam and Eve to eat the fruits for which they were created with a strong desire
and should have been entitled to. Satan only helped Adam and Eve out of the continuous
torments. He was a compassionate friend of Adam and Eve unlike an irrational, tormenting
and cruel father in Allah/God. Once again, Allah showed his tyrannical injustice for a crime
which was committed by Satan but also punishing Eve heavily for it - because she stepped
into the trap of the Satan, set by Allah/God himself. In a nutshell, the irrational, barbaric and
cruel acts of the terrorists in no way represent the principles and morality of the Satan but
clearly that of the God/Allah. These terrorists are the reincarnate of God/Allah - not that of
the Satan.
Many a religious Muslims, indoctrinated by the secular education and humanistic ethics of
the modern world often, most outrageously, terms these terrorists as reincarnate of the Satan
although they represent the commands, attitudes and characteristics of God/Allah. The same
is true for the other religious moderates, educated in the modern world. For example, when
one raises the issue of burning millions of innocent women in Europe labeling them as
witches
4
or great many men and women as apostates, the modern Christians would quickly
terms those persecutors as reincarnate of the Satan. Yet, it is Biblical God who commanded
his followers to execute those acts of cruel barbarity:
"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" [Exodus 22:18]
"Whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost (apostates?), it shall not be forgiven him
neither in this world nor in the world to come." Mat 12:32
Similarly, all good Christians believe gay nightclubs (homosexuality), abortion clinic etc. are
considered sinful and not approved by their God. Yet, when Eric Rudolf bombed such
nightclubs and clinics in order to destroy the vestiges of sins which killed, inured and maimed
many people
2
, all Christians would quickly lay the blame on innocent Satan by calling Mr.
Rudolf a reincarnate of his, instead of the spirit and hatred of God for such sinful places
which inspired Mr. Rudolf into doing these barbaric acts of terror. No where in the world,
Satan has said that he dislikes those places such that reincarnation of him in Eric Rudolf
would lead the latter to bomb those nightclubs and abortion clinics.
In fine, let us not make this innocent Satan guy a scapegoat for the barbaric acts of the
terrorists but in stead, place the blame where it truly lies. Else, finding the solutions for
ending this unnecessary barbaric cruelty would remain as elusive as ever.
