To cover up all these characteristics of the Book, multitudes of people have unfortunately been led astray by those who entertained evil intentions, who have misused it for ages, employing it as a talisman and panacea.
Those that have gone astray, although they claim to be devotees of Islam, present a sore picture on the background of the above sura.
God demands we abide by the prescriptions of the Quran, banning all other sources. And yet, innumerable so-called saints have been revered throughout ages. The ignorant and illiterate people have been exploited by religion-mongers. Their victims have become playthings in the hands of these miracle-mongers. The ingenuous persons spend their fortune in the hope to find a remedy for their ills and aspirations in total disregard of the Quran which is kept more often than not wrapped in solid jackets and hung on the wall as a talisman, without ever being opened.
