Satan’s First Trick

أول تلبيس إبليس على الناس: صدهم عن العلم، لأن العلم نور، فإذا أطفأ مصابيحهم خبطهم في الظلم كيف شاء

The first confounding of Iblis [Satan] on people: He prevented them from knowledge, because knowledge is a light, if their lights go out he [Iblis] would strike them in the darkness however he wishes.

Ibn al-Jawzi
