The Deception of Shaytaan

Recommended Posts

The Deception of Shaytaan ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB


 


 


“he beguiles man … he deceives man … he misleads man …"


 


Shaytaan is insidious by nature! Wicked and cruel! This slinking prompter casts insinuations into mans heart and retreats … He is an open enemy that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala repeatedly cautions us about in the Qur’aan! 


 


In his sinister plots to mislead he promised Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala :


  ”Because You have put me [shaytaan] in error, I will surely sit in wait for them on Your straight path.  Surah Al-A’raf ~ 7:16


~ ~ ~


 


Then I [shaytaan] will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful [to You].”  Surah Al-A’raf ~ 7:17


 


In the battle between Shaytaan and Mankind,


there are 4 directions in which Shaytaan assaults man >


 


“from before them”


He brings doubts in man’s mind and makes him believe that


Aakhirat and Resurrection is something very far fetched!


 


“from behind them”


Dunya is behind man … He tries to seduce and lure man


with the beauty and the glamour of this world!


 


“from the right”


ie : from the side of Hasanaat (good deeds) … He prompts man


into procrastinating or discarding performing good deeds


 


“from the left” 


ie : the side of sins & vice …He prompts man to continue persisting


in evils and to enjoy the ‘so called’ pleasure derived from sins


~ ~ ~


 


Although he has been given respite till Qiyamah … It is mentioned in a Hadith that Allah says : “Oh Shaytaan! As long as man has life in his body, I will never shut the doors of Taubah for him “


… SubhaanAllah! … If for some reason we slip, we should remind ourselves of the Kindness and Mercy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala …


 


Allah says: ‘Fasta’iz billaahi minash shaytaanir rajeem‘  (Seek refuge in Allah! )


When a person is going through these whisperings of Shaytaan then one should read  ~ Aoozu billaahi minash shaytaanir rajeem‘ …


 


One is urged in the Hadith when one becomes overwhelmed by the whisperings of Shaytaan, to read ~ ‘Aamantu billaahi warusulih’
