I understand that the walls of the Alhambra Palace in Granada (Spain) are
inscribed with verses from the Holy Qu'ran, most prominently including
the words:

Wa la ghalib illa Allah
(There is no conqueror but Allah).


Now, if there is no one who leads to victory and conquest but
God..

Then it follows that which leads to defeat and subjugation is
satan. (Indeed, this is the whole point of the Doctrine of
Balaam
.)


And it further follows, therefore, that anyone who seeks for other men
(other sons of Adam) to be conquered
...

is seeking for those men (sons of Adam) to be satan-worshippers.


Indeed, do you say that it is Allah's master-plan for Mankind that he be
ground down beneath the heel of his foes??

As we learn from the Old Testament, Israel was only conquered when it
succumbed to the "satanic attack" of the Doctrine of Balaam...

and those who so tricked Israel under her Judges clearly did so with intent
to subjugate Israel to sin.


So we see that much can be learned from the verses of the Holy Qu'ran
carved in the walls of the Alhambra Palace in Granada.

If you wish well for your fellow man (fellow sons of Adam), then you will
wish for him to worship Allah, that he may conquer any sinful foes
he may have, and live amidst the Freedom that God's Law embodies
(James 2:12)...

but, conversely, those who seek to subjugate and enthrall their fellow
man
(fellow sons of Adam) must, by definition, seek to tempt him
to worship satan, who embodies the opposite of Allah,
and therefore embodies defeat and subjugation to sin.


Any man who wants to conquer others wants them to (first)
turn away from Allah — Granter of Victory and Freedom — and
towards satan — who mires men in defeat and subjugation.

What is the story of Bulam ibn Baora?
And what is the lesson of the story?
