Recommended Posts

Pearls of Wisdom: No.48

“Food for the Soul”

SUBJECT: SHAITAAN(SATAN): “Our open enemy!”

 

Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

“O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Quran: 2:208)

 

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said:

“Shaitaan places his throne upon water; then sends detachments (for creating dissension); one of them comes and says: I did not spare so and so until I sowed the seed of discord between him and his father or between him and his mother or his brothers. Then he (Shaitan) says: you did nothing. They will be made up with one another. Another one comes and says: I did not spare so and so until I sowed the seed of discord between him and his wife. The Shaitan goes near him and says: ‘You have done well. And He then embraces him and says: You are so and so.”  (Hadith Muslim)

 

Note: Shaitaan’s master plan is to distract us from obedience to Allah Ta’ala. Shaitaan’s attacks comes in various forms from leading one disbelief, committing shirk (associating partners to Allah), introducing innovations in Islam and committing sins. Allah the Most Exalted has however granted us various means of protection f rom the evil of Shaitaan in the form of du’as (prayers) of protection and seeking His refuge from Shaitaan. Don’t ever feel despondent on being led astray by Shaitaan as he would hope you would give up and fail. If you have been deceived then repent and return to Allah Ta’ala.The next time he reminds you of your past, remind him of your future!
