"God condemned him and he (Satan) said: 'I will surely recruit a definite share of Your worshipers. I will mislead them; I will entice them; I will command them to marking the ears of livestock; I will command them to distort the creation of God.' Any one who accepts the devil as lord, instead of God, has incurred a profound loss."                                 Qur'an 4:119 "You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them."             Qur'an 17:36
