Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim. While he was happy he adrain

00:00:25--> 00:00:34

probably strongly Sabri were silly. Omri wildewood, aka Dr. melissani yokocho. Only. My brothers and sisters

00:00:35--> 00:01:13

Welcome to our new session of summit Alhamdulillah we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we seek His help his assistance in all our matters. And we really are grateful to him for helping us to be able to be a part of this trend summit season 120 21 organized by almoner International UK. My brothers and sisters, the topic of my talk is three gateways of shaitan.

00:01:15--> 00:01:37

Every one of us are familiar about shaitan and Allah subhanho wa Taala he says about shavon, which we need to be clearly be aware of, and to consider him how Allah subhanho wa Taala asked us to consider

00:01:38--> 00:02:37

Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, in a shaitan Allah Kumar, the Wu Zhu Sha, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed, shavon is your enemy. So treat him, take him, consider him as your enemy. So when Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly states that he is your enemy, he is my enemy, he is the enemy of the entire humanity. And Allah subhanaw taala when he says, Take him, treat him, consider him as your enemy, we must, we must consider him to be our enemy. Now, obviously an enemy attacks enemy He wants us to defeat. And we need to be really clear about his strategies about his

00:02:38--> 00:02:46

ways or tricks in order for us to combat in order for us to fight back and to deal with those the tricks.

00:02:48--> 00:02:53

So that insha Allah, we will be able to deal with them strongly.

00:02:54--> 00:03:30

As I said, shaitan has this nature of troubling us. So much so that that he wants us to lead us into the hellfire. And that is what Allah subhanaw taala. He says that shaitan is your enemy, so treat him as your enemy. He only invites Allah subhanaw taala reminds us and called us for an action to be able to deal with this enemy. He only invites

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

his people

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

to be the inhabitants

00:03:39--> 00:04:36

to be the inmates of the hellfire. So he wants to mobilize his army in this world, and this will be a destruction for those people for dunya will occur in this world, and the year after and that is what shaitan is going to do on the Day of Judgment. shaitan is going to be very clear in stating that indeed what Allah subhanho wa Taala guided you for is the truth, there is no doubt about it. So shaitan is very clear. He is aware he is knowledgeable, that what Allah subhanaw taala prescribes in the Quran, what and what prophets will assume described in the sooner is, is the truth. So he will say what Allah subhanaw taala invited you was the truth. The guidance from Islam is the truth. And I

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

have invited you to and I had no authority to force you. So Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran makes it clear that shaitan cannot force you and me. He can just invite and he will fantasize things. He will try to make the offer. He will try to make the evil so beautiful that a person gets

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

attracted to it and get deviated. So he says, I have no authority over you, but you have accepted my invitation, my call, so I just call society Our job is to invite is to call, and the people who follow straight on, they will accept the call, they will accept the invitation and get destroyed. So the the nature of shavon is that he wants us to be destroyed in dunya and akhira. And we need to be really aware about this

00:05:37--> 00:06:05

shavonne So, that insha Allah, we will be able to deal with shaitan and the tricks of shavonda shut the strategies of Satan in a better way. As I said, there are three main gateways of Satan, through which shaitan enters into our life with an intention for the destruction. Now, what are these three main gateways

00:06:07--> 00:06:22

of Satan? Number one, is should it so shut down, he makes this as the main gateway. And that is the reason you will see the bulk of the mankind they are into

00:06:23--> 00:06:31

some of the other form of ship, the bulk of the mankind, they are either in the ship

00:06:32--> 00:07:06

of associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala, quite openly, some people, they actually associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala, in believing that there is someone else as well, who does what Allah subhanaw taala does. So, this association with Allah subhanho wa Taala is the actual intention and the objective of Satan. So shaitan he wants to misguide people,

00:07:07--> 00:07:55

and Panama he is so patient, that he has been doing any gift time to the person to be able to get destroyed. So he waits patiently and finds out certain weaknesses of individual and deal with those weaknesses and make it a point of destruction. So the main gateway of Satan is should now for us to understand this strategy of Satan that he uses this gateway of Satan that how we penetrate in our lives, should we need to really ponder and be very, very cautious and sensitive about it. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala he says,

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

that, in a circle of

00:08:00--> 00:08:08

associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala is the greatest form of injustice. And Allah subhanaw taala he says

00:08:10--> 00:08:59

that a lot of binaries die, he will never, ever, I repeat, a loss to pelota Allah will never, ever forgive someone who die upon ship. You can imagine that without the forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala a person will be doomed, he'll be destroyed. Because it is with the forgiveness of Allah Subhana Allah with the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that the person we get into Jenna, so obviously he loses the opportunity to get into Jenna because he's not forgiven. So that's how severe and serious this sin is. this crime is and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran,

00:09:00--> 00:09:26

that for the hologram Allahu alayhi Jannah Allah subhanho wa Taala will make Jannah haram for that person for for who for those who get into ship. So first gateway of shaitan is Shrek. He wants you and me to associate partners with Allah. And how does he do that? Number one, he does it

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

by clearly inviting us to associate partners with Allah subhanaw taala in his existence, fees that he in his existence have lost a parallel dial as we know he is unique in his existence, meaning when there was nothing he was there, when there is everything, he is there, when there be nothing he will still be there insha Allah but shed on he wants to put this concept of bringing a diety afford di D and

00:10:00--> 00:11:08

Give people this perception that this di t also has an existence, which is forever, this is how he does ship in the existence, the partnership in the existence. Number two, ship fi Bada, Philip bother in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So shaitaan wants to invite us to do certain acts, certain actions, which are only to be devoted to Allah subhanho wa Taala and non ends. So, shaitan He wants us to be performing certain actions, which are actually meant only exclusively for Allah to someone else as well. So, he wants us to do shirk, in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala he also does invite, you know, ourselves, all of us to the ship, in the actions in armelle, Allah subhanaw

00:11:08--> 00:12:09

taala enjoys the privilege of exclusively exclusively in actions. So Allah the actions are unique, no one can and will be able to be associated with the actions, that what Allah subhanaw taala does, so he wants to bring in this concept that someone else can do these acts, what Allah subhanaw taala does, and that's how a person gets into deviation. And he will be ended up in worshipping someone else as well. Other than Allah subhanho wa Taala so he does this acts of Alibaba have certain things which are exclusive only for Allah subhanaw taala and that's how he actually misguides and mislead us. So we need to be really aware that am I doing [???] in the existence of Allah? Am I doing shift

00:12:09--> 00:13:03

in the, in the ibadah in the in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala Am I doing a search in the actions of Allah subhanaw taala Am I doing [???] in the names and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala or not, because he doesn't want us to believe in some of the other people who will have certain names and attributes, what are only designated to Allah subhanho wa Taala for example, and alim all knowing. So shaitan wants to put us this point of view that someone else is also all knowing. So this is directly shipped in the Islam of Allah subhanaw taala. So we need to be aware that shaitan wants to invite our attention to make the partnership in his existence, in his actions,

00:13:03--> 00:13:49

in his worship, in his names, and in His attributes. These are the five areas of [???] that he wants us to do. Beyond this, my beloved brothers and sisters, he also wants us to, you know, get into certain mood and momentum that will destroy us forever. For example, He wants us to feel proud about ourselves. So he penetrates in our lives the element of pride, Taka boo, this is something which is only an only suitable to Allah subhanaw taala a lot of malaria is exclusively, he is a moussaka bill,

00:13:50--> 00:14:28

there is no more ends, who deserves all kinds of pride other than Allah subhanaw taala so he wants to pump people he wants to push people he wants to instigate people to become proud of what they are doing, what they have achieved, what they you know, make in this world in this dunya. So, the achievement the progress is not bad at all, as long as it takes you away from Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as it makes you feel that it is only you

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

who made this difference in your life. A person who really progressed a person who really achieves a lot when he dedicate those achievements, that this is from the father of Allah subhanho wa Taala that this is from the blessings from Allah subhanaw taala from the favors of Allah subhanaw taala those achievements will be a real real favorable, you know achievements for him Subhana Allah, but when a person feels that these achievements is

00:15:00--> 00:16:03

Is my hard work? It's me, it's my soul. It's on you right now who did everything and this is no one else, even, you know. Now rubella Allah is not the one who gave me just so when a person gets into this feeling and this mindset, that when he gets the element of pride, Allahu Akbar, he becomes boastful. He becomes arrogant, he becomes a person like the nature of the shaitaan we all know how shaitan he became. He denied the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala by not prostrating to Adam alayhis, salaam Subhana Allah. So the idea of arrogance, it basically came in from China, he denied Allah subhanho wa Taala. To obey Allah subhanho wa Taala, in prostrating to Adam and a Salaam, and

00:16:04--> 00:17:02

he showed the element of pride, the element of arrogance, stating that I am better than him. And that's it. His call for destruction came right there. So a person who has pride, a person who is arrogant, will not even smell the fragments of Jana, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so that's the attack of shaitaan He wants you to be proud, she wants you to gain the pride, so much so that that that that self praise, that self proclamation becomes so high that you actually not be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So shaitan he does in one main gateway, through should that's the first gateway, the second gateway, my beloved brothers and sisters of shaitan is shabiha

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

What is shabiha shughart are the doubts

00:17:07--> 00:18:04

shed shaitan when he understands that the person he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala he does not get involved in [???]. So what does he do? He then tries to manipulate and pollute your belief, the pure belief that you gain that you have in your heart, he wants to pollute that belief. How he puts doubt, he puts certain questionable things in your mind about your belief about your faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala so that's how you get weaken in your belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahu Akbar and this will lead a person to the path of destruction because Allah subhanaw taala clearly states in the Quran, in the beginning of the Quran after Surah Fatiha Allah Subhana Allah begins

00:18:04--> 00:19:11

this Surah Al Baqarah and he says Alif Lam Meem Valley Kalki tabula re Buffy Elisa Lam Meem This is the book in which there is no doubt Reb is actually in B be known as something which is exactly the intense, you know yaqeen. So, dread is an intense form of doubt. So, a person will not be a believer if he has any, any sort of doubt in his heart, Allahu Akbar. So read is, is there's no doubt about There is no doubt whatsoever in what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. So shaitan he wants to put this shuba heart these doubts in the existence of Allah in the names and the attributes of Allah in the actions of Allah in the worship of Allah in the in the names and the attributes of Allah

00:19:11--> 00:19:59

subhanho wa Taala. So, he wants to put doubts he wants to put questions in your mind. so that it becomes polluted and eventually it will lead you away from Allah subhanaw taala it will make you a person of doubt a person who is a disbeliever in what of loss of hanos Allah revealed. So this is a very powerful way or the gateway of shaitan wherein he penetrates in the lives of the people. So what we need to make sure is to understand his plot, understand his gateway, understand his tricks and and the English and the strategy that he uses and combat it accordingly and we'll deal with that. inshallah. In

00:20:00--> 00:20:54

Short while so Shabbat is the intense form of doubts that he wants us to, you know, get into. And then obviously, his main objective is to lose the path of guidance. He wants us to lose the whole the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. And that's what his major, major way of destroying our fate our Eman in a vaster panel data. So he wants to make us doubtful about Allah subhanaw taala primarily, and that's why many people they are atheist, they don't believe in anything Allahu Akbar. What is the what is the outcome that they have actually arrived at? It's because of just the shutdown has deviated them to believe nothing, Allahu Akbar. So they have doubts about the existence of, of Allah

00:20:54--> 00:21:38

subhanaw taala they have doubts about an afterlife. They have doubts about Jenna, they have doubts about a nun, the Hellfire and the paradise they have doubt that there are books that have been revealed they have doubts, that there are angels who exist, they have doubts that messengers were sent they have doubt that you know Allah subhanaw taala decreed everything, so they are doubtful about all these pillars of faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala they have doubt that Quran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and as a result, they become this believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala what what led them to disbelieve their doubts. So as Muslim Nene as believers in Allah Subhana huhtala we need

00:21:38--> 00:22:39

to have certainty in our Eman inshallah, we'll talk about how we can combat all these tricks and the, you know, tribulation caused by Shai tanto. shughart, is something which is really, really powerful zeplin of Satan through which he actually penetrates into our life that we need to be really be aware of. The third gateway of Satan, my beloved brothers and sisters is the SHA one, what is Sha what not desire, extreme or intense love for anyone or anything, this is Sha one. So shaitan when he understands that he cannot convince a person, he cannot convert a person in the matter of ship. So, a person he does not do ship, he is there will hamdulillah intact with his belief, then he

00:22:39--> 00:22:44

tries to attack through the gateway of shaba heart.

00:22:45--> 00:23:28

That is the doubts, so, he wants to put doubt, and he failed. Well hamdulillah why because he's a believer. Remember, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran and shaitan confess that the people who are sincere, they will never be able to get convinced with the staying with the call of Satan, they will never accept the invitation from shaitan. So, they will never have doubts about it. So what does he do? Shut down when he fails, at level one should level two shabiha now, he comes up with another level. And that is chawan

00:23:29--> 00:23:37

love, desire, extreme and intense love for this dunya so he makes a person

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

so much close to dunya that he forget.

00:23:43--> 00:24:35

Why is he here? He thinks and he treats this dunya to be his end. Allahu Akbar. This is again a very, very dangerous movie that a person you know he takes the because of the shaitan and and remember Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, in the whole Akuma Duomo, been shut down is your open enemy. So a lot of ERISA He wants us to make sure that we do not follow the footsteps of operator. What are the 32 what is shaitan in hola como como bien. Do not follow the footsteps of shaitan for he is to you is an open enemy. So a person who followed the footsteps of shavon is though is the one who does shell is the one who has doubts He is the one who gets into the love of

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

this dunya the people and the things of this dunya so much that he forgets a loss of Hannah Woods Allah Allah work but so shattered as I said, when he fails in the level one ship when he fails in level two shabiha he gets an attack people all of us through the gateway of Chihuahua and that is the extreme love for this dunya anything and no

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

anyone about this dunya becomes more beloved to a person, then Allah subhanho wa Taala it becomes more powerful for them to be able to be happy.

00:25:14--> 00:26:08

And that's how Siobhan wants to treat this dunya There is nothing more Beloved, there is nothing that that is more beautiful, there is nothing more, you know, closer to that person who gets in intense love for this dunya right, than anything else. Right so as muslimeen we are told that we need to love this dunya as long as it keeps us intact with the belief in Allah subhanaw taala but the moment the moment we forget a lot of handle to Allah because of the love for this dunya and what exists in this dunya there is the path of destruction, there comes the gateway of Satan and that is Jehovah. So what does he do? He makes sure that you love people you love things of this dunya so

00:26:08--> 00:26:26

much that you forget Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the gateway that people actually get into of shutdowns company overwhelmingly lowered but and that's the reason Allah subhanaw taala he says aloha como Taka

00:26:27--> 00:26:43

tamale macabre, the people, all of us are in range of achieving dystonia, they are in competition, they are in extreme race and running after achievements of this Junior so much.

00:26:44--> 00:26:48

So much that until they reach the green

00:26:49--> 00:27:43

moon macabre until they reached the break. So he does not want you to be a free person. He wants you to be a person who is the slave of the Dharma or the dinar wants to be a slave of the people or the things Allahu Akbar. So a person who gets into this gateway, he will again be leading himself to the path of destruction lead by shaitan luck, but so we need to be aware that this dunya is absolutely fine. There. The blessings of this dunya is absolutely fine. As long as it does not, you know, take us away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the moment it takes away from Allah subhanho wa Taala it makes the priority, you know, disturbed, then that's an issue. So our priority is Allah His

00:27:43--> 00:28:29

Messenger is being and the rest of the things the rest of the people. If this is the way al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. But the moment the priorities get changed, and that's what shaitaan wants us to change. He wants us to work, work and work and forget Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's the reason people they work for this dunya so much so much, that they even don't have time to pray, for example, they don't have time to fast for example, they don't have time to read the Quran, for example, they don't have time to get into the seeker of Allah subhanaw taala. Why? Because they are busy, they are busy to make their dunya so much. They're busy to make people happy so much. They're

00:28:29--> 00:28:58

busy to make their dunya more progressive, Allahu Akbar, they forget Allah to handle that and a lot of binaries. He says in the Quran, a very, very strong warning for all of us. Allah says, If you forget Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala will make you forget yourself. How do you forget yourself? You forget yourself by not taking you

00:28:59--> 00:29:50

closer to Allah subhanaw taala you forget yourself by not walking on the path of success the path of salvation the path of a dire why because you're busy somewhere else. You forget that you have to gain Acura from this dunya in this dunya you actually make your asset or you break your Acura, people who make their are here or they have right priorities and people who break their ophira they have wrong priorities. And those people were wrong priorities. They are actually indulged and involved in Chava so much that they don't have time for Allah. They don't have time for anything else. Love what but so my beloved brothers and sisters, what we need to realize and understand is

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

these three gateways of shaitan. The first gateway is of the ship. The second gateway is of shabiha the third gateway is off

00:30:00--> 00:30:54

Hold on. So the ship that is associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala shuba heart which are the doubts about Allah and His Deen, third Chava, which is the extremely intense love for this dunya these are the three main gateways that shaitan actually penetrate in our lives with an intention of destruction. So we need to be really aware of this. Now, what do we do? How do we come back? How do we protect ourselves? How do we prevent ourselves from these thoughts of Shariati? Well, we have Alhamdulillah the recipe the beautiful solution prescribed by Allah Subhana Allah and His messenger. So the first thing what we need to realize and do is to have sincere and certain belief in Allah

00:30:54--> 00:31:50

subhanho wa Taala this sincere and certain belief in Allah subhanaw taala is the direct attack on shaitan. So be sincere in believing in Allah and be very, very certain about the existence of Allah about the names and the attributes of a lot about the actions of a lot about the a bother the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. And I've no doubt whatsoever, this will be able to rescue you from the plots and the gateway gateways and the tricks of Satan. So the first is have sincere and certain belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala a lot of he loves the sincere Allah subhanaw taala he will save those who are sincere in worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that's number one. Number two, be

00:31:50--> 00:32:41

sure that you get engaged with the Quran as much as you can on a daily basis. Because understand that shaitan wants to attack us on a daily basis, he is on task, he is on job, we all without an exception are at war against Vietnam, this war is 24 by seven from birth till death, this is the duration and shaitan is desperate to deviate. We need to make sure that we set up ourselves to combat the enemy and that is straight on and this is how we combat by having sincere and certain belief in Allah subhanaw taala number two we need to engage with the Quran. Those people who are with the Quran, they will never be with the shaitan remember this, those people who are with the

00:32:41--> 00:33:01

Quran, they will never ever be with the shaitan. So you can be either with one Allahu Akbar, and obviously we need to choose Well, we need to be with the Quran why we because we need to be with that which will help us to be successful in this world and the hereafter. Number three we need to make do

00:33:02--> 00:33:49

to combat Satan with our own strength, we cannot do that. We cannot do that. Right. So we need to seek the help from our last panel, Donna, we need to stay out to Billahi min ash shaytani regime, we need to keep ourselves in the company of Allah subhanaw taala we need and that's the real protection from shaitan that's the real way of making sure that you prevent and protect yourself from shaitaan. By asking Allah Subhana Allah to protect you make dua a lot. MiG bois a lot to make sure that you are protected from the plots and the plans of shaitan number three, make sure that you get engaged with the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala

00:33:50--> 00:34:42

make sure that there is nothing that can deviate you from the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala. So dedicated time frame to make sure that at least you know few minutes in the morning and few minutes in the evening when you do the other car of Sabah and massage that will help you to protect you know you from the plots of shaitan So number one, since they're uncertain, believe in Allah subhanaw taala engaging yourself with the Quran, making sure that you ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you make dua number four, to have the engagement with the vicar of Allah the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is definitely the great way to protect you from the plot of shaitan. Number five,

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

make sure that you have patience and perseverance because those people who get deviated they are inpatient people, those people who, you know, get into the level one ship, those people who get into shabiha those people who get

00:35:00--> 00:35:46

into Sahaba, they actually do not have one key quality in them. And that is patience, sub, they don't have patience, they don't have patience to uphold their belief, they don't have patience, to remove the doubts and be certain in what they believe they don't have patience to, you know, protect themselves from that which is lust from that which is, you know, extreme level of desires from Han Allah. So you need to make sure that you have patience. And that's how you basically keep a lot of final dialogue with you, as a lot of binaries there. He says, In Nevada, ma sabreen. Indeed, Allah is with those who have patience. So make sure that you have patience. And finally, my beloved

00:35:46--> 00:36:31

brothers and sisters, you need to be among those, or with those, you know, people who have these qualities, those people who are righteous, those people who are good doers, those people who are sincere, those people have yochanan, Allah subhanaw taala, those people who do not get involved in any of the gateways, upside down, and that is, Shabbat, or shahabad, they make sure that you they, they keep striving and they keep struggling and moving on the path of Allah subhanaw taala. And that is the path of success. So make sure that you are with the good people, and make sure that you're not with those who are the people who do not have a man who do not have faith, who make your faith

00:36:31--> 00:37:18

also deeply affected, or I would say polluted, you know, and these people have the the either they are openly deviant, or they try to put things or they become the agents of shaitan, who will destroy your and my beliefs away beloved brothers and sisters, three gateways of shaitan is we talked about number one should shuba heart and Chihuahua and we said the recipe of rescue the make is to make sure that we have the solution. the right solution to combat against Satan is having certain belief in Allah subhanaw taala and sincerely worshiping him to make sure that we are engaged with the Quran to make sure that we keep on making dua for the protection to make sure that we engage in the liquor

00:37:18--> 00:37:57

of Allah to make sure that you are patient to make sure that we are with the good people and to avoid the bad people. This is the combat strategy in short, that we need to keep in mind we ask Allah Subhana huhtala to protect us from the plots of shaitaan We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among those who are solid, who are the righteous slaves and the sincere slaves of Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah subhanaw taala to shower his choices blessings and mercy on all of us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala eventually to make us among those who will be with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the highest levels of jhana witnessing the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala will occupy

00:37:57--> 00:38:00

Ghana and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
