The video from inside Pazuzu Algarad’s home has provided some long-awaited answers. However, it has also raised some questions.

The walls inside the majority of the rooms inside are plastered with posters, drawings, symbols and words; both in English and Arabic, according to a report from WGHP.

In an effort to decipher what the Arabic words say, the TV station spoke with Ahmad SharafEldin, a professor at Wake Forest University and expert in the Arabic language.

SharafEldin told the station he wanted to stress that the Islamic religion and Satanism do not mix. Algarad's neighbors have told the media that Algarad had claimed to have converted to Islam.

“One of the strongest beliefs in Islam is Satan is that entity that you are struggling with in order to be a good person,” he said. “To put Satan in Islam, as something that you follow, it’s absolutely ridiculous.”

The evidence of Satanism had been present in symbols and the English language throughout the home and the same proved for the Islamic words.

“Not very clear Arabic words,” Dr. SharafEldin said of words written on the front door of the home. “But, what I can understand is it’s ‘This is the home of Satan.'”
