Imam al-Sadiq (AS) was asked about storytellers and whether it is permitted to listen to them?' He said, 'No', and he (AS) said, 'Whoever listens to a speaker worships him. But if he speaks about Allah [and anything associated], then it is as if he is worshipping Allah, and if he speaks from or about Satan [and anything associated with him], then it is as if he is worshipping Satan.?
