Servants of Allah, let us fear Allah, the Exalted, and know that you have a great enemy who never ceases to oppose us, this enemy is the devil, Allah says:

Servants of God, who is the devil? Why was it created? What does it mean for human beings?

Honorable Servants of Allah, Allah has indeed created Satan with the “flame of fire,” as Allah says:

“And We created the jinn (devils) from the tongue of the fire.” From the narration of Aisha may Allah be pleased with her, Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) said:

“The angels were created with light, then the jinn and the flames were created and then (Prophet) Adam was created from what is described to you.”

God’s servants among the devil’s desires for man are, to destroy him, God says;

“God cursed him (Satan), and he said,” By God, I took a piece of your servants, and I misled them, and I made them gnaw, and I commanded them to cut off the ears of the animals, and I commanded them. to change God’s creation … “.

O servants of Allah, Allah and His Messenger have told us about the opposition of Satan to us in many verses and traditions. God says:

“(The devil said, O Allah) because of the destruction of the ruler, I will live for them your straight path …”. He certainly promotes that the devil divides his army for the destruction of mankind every day when he sits in his palace.

Servants of Allah, may Allah help the devil and other things, among them:

1. Hidden (Invisible) Allah says: “He sees you, six tribes by which you do not see them”.

2. Putting doubts in the mind of man, God says “This is what puts doubts in people’s hearts …”



3. Entering the human body, Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) said:

“Surely the devil runs in the human body like a bloodbath.”

4. Associating with man in all matters: his food, drink, lodging, residence and even his relationship with Allah

Being aware of foes that harm our prospects of admittance to paradise is a stepping stone to guidance and the path to eternal wealth. SATAN’S PLOT

The most dangerous of these foes is Satan. He is always on the lookout for methods to deviate us off the straight and narrow. As a result, the Qur’an and the Sunnah continually cautioned about Satan, outlining his schemes and demonstrating how he manipulates the ego (nafs). “Satan is present by any one of you in all of his affairs, even at the moment he eats,” the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) remarked. (Muslim)

Satan, according to Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim, is a greater menace than our own egos (nafs): “Those who study the Qur’an and Sunnah will see that Satan, his planning, and hatred are mentioned more than the ego” (nafs). Because his whispers are the source of the ego’s depravity and degeneration.

As a result, Allah directed us to seek refuge in Him from Satan during recitation and other activities, despite the fact that he never told us to seek refuge from the ego (nafs). [1]

“Be keen, my brother, to strive against Satan and subjugate him for two reasons,” Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali counseled.

To begin with, he is a clear adversary intent on diverting your attention away from you, and therein lies the problem.  This is why Allah commands us to take refuge in Him from the accursed Satan.


May Allah Protect us from the evil of the devil, Aameen
