Combating The Whisperings Of Shaytaan

Combating the Whisperings of Shaytaan

By Shaykh Yunus Patel (Raheemahullah)

 

Troublesome thoughts

 

A lady called, saying that whilst reading Salaah, the images of idols come in front of her and there is a whispering in her heart : “You are not a Muslim. You are a Mushrik (one who associates partners with Allah Ta’ala), so prostrate (or make sajda) to this idol.”

 

Surely if an image like that comes before a person in Salaah, the person will become terribly worried. And she repeatedly hears this: “You have become a Mushrik. You have become a Mushrik.” As a result she was very, very anxious and worried, saying that due to this worry, she hadn’t slept. Due to the frequency of these whisperings, she was becoming a nervous wreck.

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

The way to repel stray thoughts and the whispers of Shaitaan is to deal with them with courage and determination. Dealing with them with courage and determination is to totally ignore them and not pay any attention to them. This is similar to a stray barking dog. If you interfere with it and try to silence it, it will continue barking at you. However, if you ignore it, it will automatically stop barking. Hence the best way to deal with stray thoughts and the whispers of Shaitaan is for you to totally ignore them and not pay any attention to them. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 7/210)
