Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
There can be ‘Sihr ’ (sorcery /witchcraft) and ‘magic’ in the words and writings of those who have deviated from the Siratul Mustaqeem . Their words have darkness because they have the darkness of deviation in the form of Kufr (Disbelief), Shirk (Polytheism), Nifaaq (Hypocrisy) and Fisq (Sin) prevalent in their hearts. Those who have spiritually pure hearts can sense this darkness in their hearts, when reading such writings.
In fact, shaytaan glorifies the person’s deviated speech or writings and causes it to enter the heart of the reader or listener, as a result of which a person goes astray, sometimes even losing his Imaan (faith). May Allah Ta'ala protect us all.
There are so many people who read the books of communists, atheists, Qadianis and Shias, with a so-called ‘open mind’, trusting their intelligence to save them from deviation. However, people of great intelligence and learning went astray. There is no shortage of evidence to prove this point.
The writings and speeches of the Ulama-e-Haq and people who have purified their hearts and souls in the company of the pious have Noor (Light). This, in turn, lights up the hearts of both readers and listeners.
Those who have to do comparative studies should only do so after acquiring sound knowledge of the teachings of Islam, and should do so under the guidance of the Ulama-e-Haq.
