Series: Hasan Ali - Quranic Themes
First of all our brothers and sisters Solomonic warahmatullahi wabarakatu.
In one of the last sessions of the Quranic themes we covered about
desires and how desires lead people away from a lot of them. Today, we want to dis discuss another enemy. See, the inside of the human being has got two big enemies. One is the shaytan. One is the devil, and the other one is his own ego, and how the ego leads a person astray. So sometimes people wonder, like, for example, we know that the shaytans are locked up in Ramadan. So how does the person still sin? Well, this is because of the ego because once the ego gets used to it once you get used to something that is a habit, once that once shaytan can get a person to have a habit of something, then he's got them to do it, even though he's not around. So today's puranic theme is
actually going to be about the shaytan because one of the key things that allow us to be aware of is that the devil has made a promise he wants to take every one of us to jahannam every one of us he wants to take us to Jannah that's his. That's his ultimate goal. He doesn't even sleep at night.
Do you know that he's more awake at night than the day In fact, most of the shakedowns get released at Medina code radical Muslim, and father time, the early morning shift starts a father imagined this early morning shift is that for the neuro link already, were asleep. They already they've already got three knots tied. They sit at the top of our heads.
And as soon as we wake up, the first thing they say to us is sleep Sleep is a long night ahead sleeves the there's a long night ahead.
So he wants us to sleep He wants us to miss father. That's one of the first first and foremost things he wants us to do in the daytime. And the Hadees tells us that if you actually remember Allah, if you do, we'll do if you pray, then you break each of the knots that shaytan tied
with first thing is he wants to make you know, Mr. Father. Next thing is if you miss the father, he's made you lethargic. According to Hadith, he says that he's made you very lethargic. And throughout the whole of the day, what he'll do is he'll try and give you one or another dose of things now he's got a lot of different plans and tactics that he uses. But ultimately Allah azza wa jal has told us in the in the Holy Quran, in Surah, Nisa surah, number four and number 76. Allah said indicator Shivani, Canada, he's told us that the plans of the shaytan are weak. Okay, so we've got to remember that he's weak, we're stronger. Every single human being has got one shaytan
appointed for them, and one Malak one Angel appointed for them. So Allah has made it fair and square, some of us might think, well, it's unfair that we are shaytan always on our back always got a devil on our back telling us to do bad things as well as Medicare, he's put an angel to the right side of our hearts. And the devil will come to the left side of our hearts. So whenever you know, sometimes you're in a situation and you kind of think, should I do it? Should I do it? And half of you says, No, don't do is wrong. And the other half says, can't just do it, just do it. Just do it. Just do it. Another house is not an adult. That's not right. That's not a good thing to do. Yeah,
you know, those two voices that we're hearing, one is actually from the shaytaan. And one is from the angel. And those are the those are the things that we're hearing inside. So even if you come to their judgment, and you say to yourself, Well, you know what I I was tempted by the shaitaan. Right? Well, you were also, you know, told by the angel to do something good. So you can't say Well, I didn't get a fair chance. So this is a hadith that explains us that explains to us that there is an angel as well as the devil that that tells us to do certain things. Now apart from Allah azza wa jal saying that he's his weak. I was also told us in Surah, number four and number 83, while Oh la, la,
la Mata Mata who letaba to shaytani la kalila. If it wasn't for the bounty of Allah upon you, if it wasn't for his mercy, then a lot of you would have followed him only a few would have been saved from him. So what we understand from this is that Allah azza wa jal has got a massive amount of mercy and bounty that helps us to stay away from the Shaitaan. So that's another added bonus that we've got.
Lao Tzu said that you have to understand that in Surah, Yusuf surah number 12. And number five, Allah said in a shavon and insomnia movie, the devil, for the human being is a clear arch enemy. So there is no greater enemy that we have than the devil because an enemy in this world wants to probably kill us what's worse than any we can do to you in this fall, he'll kill you. An enemy in this world will probably want to torture you will probably want to, you know, under harass you would want to put you in danger would want to hurt you would want to do these old bad things. What's worse than that is a police not only wants to hurt us, but he wants to take us to Jannah forever and
forever. He wants to take us to Hellfire forever and forever. And that's what allows we just said that he's the worst of all enemies you can get in Surah Surah Surah, number 17. And number 27. Allah says what can i shape on the rugby capoeira. shaytaan for his Lord is someone that is excessively
excessively someone who is denying God, excessively, someone who's going to be ungrateful to God, one of the key features of shaytan is to be ungrateful. So you know, one of the things I want to say is that I'm going to we're going to get into the touches of shaytan in a little while from the Quran. But one of the things is people who do sugar people who are always thankful
are closer to Allah xojo. And pleaser who people who are unthankful You know, I'm moving away from a lot of them because if you look at Tao Dalai Lama, Allah said about the Illuminati Shaku, he said one of the key features about Tao Li Salaam was that he was very, very thankful to Allah Israel for whatever he gave. So you know, in normal people's voices, you can hear this, you know, when people moan a lot, they're unthankful you know, people moan or this or that, or this or that, you know, I'm like, so behind like, every other I'll just, I'll just drop on things to you. every other person, every other family member, every other married life, every other teenager has got problem. There is
no escape from this in this world. You got to start life like this. Okay? So you've got a choice. Now either you embrace whatever problems you've got and you deal with it, or you start moaning and you start being thankful and being thankful is one of the ways of shaytaan
another one in Surah Furqan surah. Number 25 is number 29. Allah says what kind of shape Arnold in insanity holla.
The shape Don wants to make the human being disgraceful. He wants to disgraces he wants to ashame us in whichever way he can. And in in surah sharara surah number 26 ayah number 221. Allah says hello Naboo kumala Montana's de Lucia in Tennessee Sandra, Allah Cooney afac, in a theme, should I tell you where the devil's start to descend? they descend upon every individual who fabricates a lot, who lies a lot and who sins a lot. So what do you understand from this ayah is that when Shane did this, the how the cycle works. Shaytan wants to get us how he gets us is he wants us to sin. Once he makes us sin, then he then what happens is we've got you know, what the Hadith explains to us is that when
a human sends a hadith and Muslim explains this, when a when a Muslim will sin, then a lot of them will put a black.on to the heart. When you sin again, Allah will put another black.on to the heart. What What that means is it's metaphorical. What that means is that there's an influence of the shape and a darkness that has descended upon the human being. Okay, the opposite is true. When you do a good deed, a lot of gela will put a white dot onto the heart. When you do another good deed alone put another does an angel that will just drop you know we do
what's good now, just just plot another another white.on to the heart. So you're getting a lot of new or light, it's metaphorical again, which means that you're more inclined towards doing good deeds. So what happens is that the shaitaan wants us to sin and sin and sin and not repent and sin and sin each time we do this. He's got now a very good way of getting at us because that's that's now become like his home is like all those sins and dark spots in the heart make it easier for the shaytan to come again and again. So whenever a person is sinful, whenever person, look, we all can become sinful, right? So what allows magenta has told us to do is that you become sinful vetova
straightaway, just say Allah, I seek forgiveness. Now what shaytan wants to do is that he wants to make you sinful again, and again. Now he's waiting for us to slip and not do Toba.
Don't get back to a loss aversion. Once you do once you don't get back to Allah then it makes it easier for him to come back to our our hearts okay allows has told us in the Holy Quran in the lawsuit of the Quran Michelle did was was a Hannah's a lady was specific to Luton as he wants to position himself inside our chests, and he wants to whisper in our chest. The only time he gets to whisper in our chests is the time when we are we are not in the remembrance of a lot but and also we've got some sin there, the more sin you pile up, the easier it is for Satan to come. The lessons there are, the more difficult it is for him to come. The more Vicar or the remembrance of Allah
there is that it is really really difficult for the finishing time to come. And that's that's the crux of it. So we're going to go through some is but just just on that point
soura are off surah number seven, and number 201. Allah says in the larina taco is seven for Illumina shaytani trekaroo. For
those people who have had, taqwa they've been thinking of Allah, mindful of Allah, they've been trying to remember last season, when a group of devils come not only one but a group of devils come and try to attack them. Tobacco they suddenly become aware of it. fader who moves around, they get an insight, and therefore they don't get fooled by the shaytan. Right. So those people who've had a lot of taqwa a lot of like, you know, awareness of Allah Vicar of Allah, mindful of Allah, our whole gang or share team can come to you, but still won't be able to take you out because Allah will guide you because of the good deeds that you've done. So what's crucial for us is to understand that good
deeds make it difficult for the shaytan to come to us bad deeds make it easy for the Shakedown to come to us. And in the shadows are what we what we've been told the Quran and Sunnah is that in every single other action of our day, we're supposed to do something that will remember Allah right? If you think about it, you wake up in the morning say Alhamdulillah Allah The ohana bada mama tambien Why is a network it says the parabola you're trying to get away from shaytan and that actually takes away one of the knots of the shaytaan you you doing? What do you say Bismillah you remember like us finishing a shadow line.
You remembering a lot again your Salah you remembering Allah Okay, you might do a bit of tilava you remembering a lot of Vicar after Salah you remembering a lot you're going to the toilet before that you spend a lot of money I was going to hope with you will have is why you remembering a lot I will say saved me from the devil the devil shot in the devil the male ones and then the female ones. If you look at a whole Shetty, I every other step of the way, everything that happens remember the light you leave your house, you say you know you're actually saying to Allah azza wa jal this mean lightworker to Allah you know In the name of Allah depending on Allah azza wa jal La la la la la la
nobody can make you do good deeds and nobody can save me from sin except for Allah. Allah my Allah because Allah must have asking you to project me and I'll be low dollar that I may be misguided or my I might I might misguided others or I might be misguided and so on so forth. All these all these different laws even when you come to the house you say another door like this will I allow my
title nobody will hire me maharajji Bismillah Bismillah R Rahman r ly Allah every other incidence when you when you sit down to eat, what did the Prophet Allah say? You say Bismillah R Rahman I work Attila. When you say that professionalism says shaytan will not be able to eat with you. She does around he wants to get us where is he? No, he was gonna he's gonna get us in the toilet so not not that he's going to make you free cat in the toilet. Okay, what is he doing the toilet? Well, he just wants to mess mess with the bowels. It's a Hardee's. Hi, this is Timothy, he's gonna make it difficult for you to let it roll out. Right? If you say the drop, then he doesn't see you. He
doesn't enter he's not able to influence you. If you eat you never said Bismillah shaytan is there with you? So he's eating so half of your meal is going with him? Now some people who don't believe in Islam are gonna find this all freaky and say, Oh my god, they believe in this stuff. Yes, of course. We believe in this stuff. We believe in greatest stuff. We believe in the Day of Judgment. We believe in the punishment of the grave we believe in a lot of other stuff. So this is nothing for us to believe. So anyway, the point is the Shadi has told us throughout the whole of the day and night to stay in the remembrance of Allah and to seek protection from the devil whenever we can even
recover the Muslim who has an extra drawers the proxy allows us to do this at McRib and not further the process allows us to increase things and do as extra Why? Because he wants to, you know not obviously he was all he would never have the devil ever come near him. Okay because of who he was sallallahu Sallam but he's teaching us so he's to read recycle three times colonial Philip three times. colorblindness three times extra this extra after Madrid after visit. Why?
Because it gives you that extra boost of immunity that that protects you from from the devil. Now,
one of the other things I have to say is that look to understand the tactics with some of the things that we're going to discuss today is the tactics, the means that the shaytan uses to try and get us to go astray. So one of the early ones he tried with our forefather, uddevalla salatu salam to get him to eat from the forbidden tree is that he had to lie to him.
He had to lie to him, and he had to make the lie look like the truth.
If you don't want to talk about what I'm talking about, then you just think about fake news today. Right? So he lies and makes you believe that lies absolutely true. So what he did is that he came to our forefather administer Assam Surah Surah, seven Ayah number 20. And he said to them, he said to both of them are Salaam and Hawa because they were roaming around Jelena they were free individual, they were enjoying every moment in Ghana.
But there was that one tree and you know, the human being, if you take if I was to get you in a in a room like this, okay, I said to you, oh, I will give you everything in this room. But there is a box in the corner, never opened the box. If I said that to you, and you're free and enjoying everything in is all for day in day out, although is crossed your mind?
What's in the box? What's in it, even look at what's in it. So, of course there was curiosity from other monasterevin How about the shaytan came in live? And he said, Man, how Kumara bukhoma and Javi shahdara. Your Lord has not prevented you He is not prohibited you from this tree in the anti acuna mala cane. Except that once you eat from the tree, both of you are going to become angels. At the moment, you human beings. You see the angels, you're not like them. Soon as even the tree, you're gonna become like the angels. That's line number one. line number two is an outer Kunal holiday and he said that the moment you mortals, you're gonna die one day, your death is going to come and take
your souls one day. To avoid death you need to eat from that tree. That tree is the tree of life is going to make you live forever. Now that's a second life now, to make the lies seem like the truth. He said the next thing which is in is number 21 of surah seven. What are sama Houma in Nila Kumar lamina Nasir, and he said one lie he I am telling both of you the truth.
Like how Lola for a living. Now, the thing is Adam and I said I've never heard anybody lie ever. He never heard anybody lie. But to hear somebody take the name of a law
and be lying. Nah, that can't be true. He must be telling the truth. He must be telling the truth. So they took from the tree and they ate and we know the rest is history. Now illa heilala Luca shaden does. He says a lie? And then it makes you believe that the lie is the truth. This is one of these Ultimate Weapons against us. He will make me and you believe that something that we see
is not what we're seeing. And in the Quran in several places. A lot of Adela has explained for ASEAN Allahu shavon. armella whom, okay, several verses of the Quran, Allah, Allah has explained to us that one of his deep tactics is that he is going to make it seem very, very sort of
attractive, he's going to make it seem to you that what your actions are going to be very attractive to you. What are you doing, he's gonna make you believe that nothing's gonna come of it. Nothing's gonna happen if I carry on with what I'm doing. Okay. So for example, in the in the in the Holy Quran in surah, number four and number 120. Allah says, one of the taxes of shaytan and a big tactical shaytan is Yeah, I do home what human need him shaytan is gonna make you promise he's gonna make me a promise.
And he's gonna make me and you The second part is human need, he's going to give you hope. So there's going to be an absolute false hope is gonna give and he does this in most of the sins he tries to take us towards. Okay, so let me give you let me give you an example. Okay, let's say
person has seen. Let's say a man has seen another woman. Okay? And he wants to be with her. So shaytans tactic is to make him believe that being with her,
nothing's gonna happen. How is he going to do that? How's shaytan gonna make this man who's let's say a man like us, right? He's come to the masjid. He's probably praying. He's probably doing good things, right? And he wants to take him towards the wrong path. How's he going to do it? The first thing shaytan does is that he says that, oh, you might say, well, that woman needs some help.
us and he covers it. That woman need some help.
She needs your help.
Yeah, she's vulnerable. You should go and ask her how she
so think is a man my god. I'm asking how are you your case is that you're you're and the first time it's always a sister, sister, sister, sister, sister.
So first thing is to give out. Next thing is he wants to then make the person have feelings. Then he'll move forward to make the person want to talk he'll move forward to make them want to see each other more often. He'll make the move a bit further. And then what we'll do is he might say, Well, you know what, I'm going to be helping the system. There's nothing wrong I'm just gonna be helping the system. There's gonna be no feelings there's gonna be nothing I'm not gonna do anything wrong. He's gonna help us sister. So what is that? Is that his camouflage the whole thing with help? I'm gonna give that person dollar I'm gonna give that brother or sister dollar so he's come value with
our so the person is engaged in give dollar then one day
is what they're there now. Forget Dawa. Forget helping they're now lustfully talking.
They're talking First they talk then they talk lustfully once they talk lustfully that was going out the window. Now that given down to one another, if you know what to say. Right. Now, the next thing is he's gonna make the move closer and closer.
There goes out the window. What did he do? He camouflage the whole thing. He made it attractive by helping someone or by encouraging someone to do something good. But really, his real aim was to get both of them to come together and to and to do something wrong to do an evil act.
Do something really bad?
He wants to take somebody towards drugs. How's he gonna do?
He's got mentality. So he'll say, look, if I take this small drug, I'm never gonna go to the next bit. Never, never not me, not me never go to the next level of drugs. Or once I take it once. I'm just gonna leave it aside. I'm not gonna take it a second time this one just once just once. This just want is a promise. Yeah, to whom? Well, you might need him the Quran says first is the premise or just just just just just one, just one just once. I promised myself just once. So they do once. Once I've done it once. Then the next time is like, just twice, just twice. Right? So you breaks the promise just twice. And then the next part is human need him. He gives the person hope. The hope is
I'm going to be able to stop before I get addicted. And therefore I'm going to save myself from what every other druggie has gone into, that's the hope. And then say, Look, when am I gonna live
below all these other druggies? So it takes a second one. Then he says to himself, you know what? Sorry, I'll just take you once in a while.
Once in a while, right? once a day, then twice today.
Whoo, this guy look like them right now. He's on like, four or five, six times a day, then he's going on the next level of drugs. Right? He says again, oh, just this this big one drug just just once. Just once. I just want to taste it, see what it is? Yeah, no more than that. So what we'll do is each time he's giving you a new promise. And then he gives you a new hope that I'm never going to become like what it is. And he's camouflaged the whole thing with just trying it just testing out. Oh, I've got some problems. Once I take some weed, it makes me it makes me think about my problem better. So he's given another nother false, you know, false kind of image to the person that once I
take this is gonna make me feel better with all the sins that shaytan is able to take someone down this these two tactics here. Yeah, I don't even need him. There's a promise. And there's a hope. Right. And some people he keeps on hope for a very long time. Like you think about it. All the Muslims who are not praying right now.
Medina yoga family members, you know, that are not praying. They're all on this.
He's promising them though. They're promising themselves. Oh, I promise. I'll pray one day. It's a promise. yes or no to me. They all have got it in their hearts one
They, they're going to be praying Come on guys, yes or no? Yes, when they get older, when they get a beat, you know, one day when they have have had enough of the good life in this world and done enough scenes to make them feel cells feel better, one day, they're going to go to the right path, and they're going to pray. Second part is human need him. When he does that, he gives him hope, their hope is that look, I'm gonna go to Jenna, because I'm a Muslim.
I'm gonna go to Germany, because before I die, I'm gonna stop praying, I'm gonna do everything I can do, I'm gonna go to Hajj, I'm gonna go around as many times as I can, I'm gonna eat as much stuff as I can, I'm gonna do all the good things I can. And you know what, I'm gonna get a lot of grace just before I die. And that's my hope I'm gonna go to Dan genma, or some some listeners out there. Oh, I love the professionalism so much, that I think he's going to intercede for me on the Day of Judgment. And that's going to be my way to gender, it's a hope. So he gives them loads of hopes inside, a lot of tactics that shaytan has got is that he'll give them a promise that will give a
hope. And both of them are ways to trick them to fool them to do what he wants them to do.
Okay, let's go to a nother thing, an accurate tactic that Satan has.
Another one is that
So so what I said to you was the URL. So what what shaden will do is, it makes something look attractive. This is in Surah, Number eight, and number 48. So for example, he wants to take somebody, he wants to take somebody astray in wealth, what he'll do is that he'll make the person want to earn wealth, and earn more and earn more through the wealth. He'll try and give them greed.
He'll make them want to go for wealth, well, money, money, money, money, money, money, more money, more money, bit more money, more money, and a bit more money, I think is you know, if you think about it, yeah. Whatever money you've got today, or whatever money I've got today is more than enough.
If you really think about is more than enough.
But if your hope goes beyond what money is you have now than you need
you guys, you guys understand what I'm trying to say to you guys? If you got no hope of like, I want to say hello, I'm the wishes. Let's talk about wishes. If you've got no extra wishes in life,
if you've got no extra wishes, extra things you want to do in life, you say to yourself today that you know whatever, I've got Alhamdulillah tomorrow What I mean is Allah will give me anyway, so that will be that tomorrow, but today I'm happy if you get to that stage Alhamdulillah you say? But if you've got loads of wishes, like oh, I've got to get extra money for this. I'll need another car next year. I'm gonna need an extra sort of house for my son I'm gonna need another few extra 1000 pounds for my daughter's wedding I'm gonna need this that that so these are all wishes. When your wishes go become more than what you've got right now. Then you need to always get more money more
money, more money, more money, more money. In the midst of all of that he gives agreed.
He makes you feel that you know it's not enough. Once even put you on a dose that is not enough. It's not enough. He's now got you going after money. Now, nothing's bad in you earning your money. But what he does in between that is he makes a person feel that in trying to get their money, it's okay to sacrifice the akhirah
a lot of Muslims are falling into this trap. A lot of Muslims are very Unfortunately, they will make sure that they wake up in the morning to go to work on time.
Doesn't matter what time the shift is. Sometimes the shift is at nine o'clock for most people, they'll get up at seven o'clock. Right, though brush shower, whatever, get their suit booth whatever ready by eight o'clock that the house by nanoprobe that the office some shifts start at 6am in the morning. I haven't heard you know 90% of people 95% of people whatever will most days get at work six o'clock if the shift starts at six o'clock they'll be at work. Tell me guys yes or no. Yes. Why? Because salary, right. They don't want the monies to stop at the end of the month. They don't want. They don't want them to get themselves to get fired. Now what it is, is that they'll they'll go
they'll be early in the morning they'll be there early in the morning to make those shifts. But when it comes to fudger when it comes to asherah when it comes to the akhirah it's sacrifice.
factor can be a six figure can be at 830 it can be a seven, but further is not the priority. This is the priority. A lot of people fall into this. I've seen parents fall into a trap that GCSEs a levels or levels private tuition is more important than Salah a lot of Lord of the mind is right now. Tell me guys is not true. Five o'clock. The kid has to go to tuition. Seven o'clock his tuition ends. Six o'clock is mother's
night the child is a teenager his adult
tuition, five to seven, or maybe might be six to eight, whatever it is, Muslim comes in the middle and monitoring needs to be done.
A lot of parents will not tell the child to pay the mageba tuition.
Yes or no.
They won't tell him the non UK tuition, not tuition, why important tuition mine border.
You sacrifice the era for the dunya.
And that's why shaden will try and make you do. He'll try and get you in something where the accurate becomes secondary DNA becomes first I just got you.
That's shaytans tactic. He's got you. If the ACA ever becomes the galore of you might think, Well, isn't that important that we put the ACA first? Why are we here?
Why are we here? Why did Allah give us the gift of time in the first place? Why did Allah give us the gift of intelligence? Why did Allah give us the gift of money? Why? Because we can use these gifts to worship Him, to recognize him to worship him to to be sevens, for him. That's it. That's why he gave the gift. These gifts were a means to an end time, intelligence, money, families, relationships, health, wealth, whatever it was all means to for us to become more thankful and to actually you know, several laws that Allah never said give me 24 hours, he just said give me part of your 24 hours. But when these become the end of itself, like wealth is my number one priority now.
Health is my number one priority. Family is number one priority. Second comes a law second come the profit second comes after well now you've messed everything up and the shaytans Got you. That's one of shaytan tactics. Another one that he will do, a tactic that he's got
that he will use is that he will try
and get a person to spend their money that they have in the wrong way he will either try and make you waste your money. So in the Quran surah number Surah Surah surah 17 ayah number 27 it says in the Nova Divina can only one share of those people who waste their money who squander their money who just waste you know you've got loads of money you can spend it here spend it as when you don't care what you spend where you spend all you are from the brothers Allah said you're a brother of the shaitaan
because it's a tactic he'll try and make us waste your money. If not waste your money will try and make you spend it in something which is haram. So for example, in the Quran being clearly told that one of the ways is that he will try and get a person to deal with usury
Riba usually it's in Surah Baqarah towards the end of surah, Baqarah.
And the shaytan will try and get a person to try and spend it in something that's Haram. If you can't get you to spend it, usually he's got other means. So I'll just say one of the other things is give you this,
this this reference from the Quran in surah baqarah.
sutra number two, and it's ayah. Number.
Number 275. If you can't get to do to do that, a lot of a lot of people what he's got them to do is he's got them to indulge themselves in alcohol and gambling.
Whether it's selling alcohol, whether it's involved in gambling, whether it's drinking alcohol, whether it's trading in alcohol, whichever way it is, it's a tactic. And once he got he's got to do that this is in Surah
Surah number five, I number 190. Allah has mentioned that through alcohol and through gambling, what he does is the next tactic is he's gonna make you have enmity between your own family members. Now, let me just give you this because a lot of again, a lot of Muslims don't understand how Satan does this. If if you if you remember what I said to you at the beginning of the session, I said shaytan wants us to sin. Once he gets you to sin, then he will get you furthermore and I listen to how he gets people Furthermore, by making them do this so that I number 90 surah number five I number 90 yeah you are Latina Amano. O you who believe in number Hamada? Well Mason as for alcohol and
gambling allows you just says this is rich Amina Emily shaytaan visa from the dirty actions of the shaytan. So stay away from it in the next verse, Allah says, Now look how he gets us in nama you need to shape up what the shaytaan What the devil wants to do, and you have a an akuna Dawa. He's gonna make you hate one another once you're going to gambling and once you're going to alcohol, while
bar you're going to have hatred and enmity between yourself feel hungry will mess it because you dealt with alcohol and you dealt with gambling with the command if you like then he's going to stop you from the remembrance of Allah. That's the next thing. So because you sin, He is now going to you know hand over you that is going to make you do stop stop doing the vicar of Allah Why are you so dogmatic like whiny Salah he's gonna make a person stop doing Salah you know a lot of people who are in the alcoholic industry Do you know a lot of them don't do this a lot.
I don't I don't know of not only few gamblers but I don't know of them any gamblers to pray
to offer Salah because once you go down this this line, then he's got you in a state where you're not going to even be doing your basics of your of your deen and why? Because he made you seen you had a dark heart more dark dark dots were being put up to your heart and it becomes hard, it becomes hard to extend that shaytan it becomes this next home and you find it very difficult to listen to Allah azza wa jal. So, that is that is another one the way that he can get a person to to move away. Now another tactic is which allows Virgil has warned us of is a big one of shaytan is fascia
of something obscene, something obscene, so he will order human beings to do things that are obscene. And when Allah azza wa jal talked about optimizing the whole Quran in Surah Al aarav and he told us how otherwise animals fooled and he was taken out of Jannah He then said to us, this is Surah number seven and number 27. Yeah, Benny Adam old children of Adam, la yesenin Nakuru negotiate on net not the shaytan put you to a test. Come on. Raja go a communal agenda, let him not put you to tribulation, just as he took both of your parents Adam and Hauer out of Jana yen zero on Humala sama. Once they ate from the tree, both all their clothes was seized from them. nutria Houma so
attina because he wanted to make other malayalam see how naked and he wanted Howard to see otherwise a naked and he wanted to basically bring shamelessness to them. Now of course, they are husband and wife says nothing wrong in them seeing each other in that said, but the point here is that he wants to create amongst the sons of Adam amongst the daughters of Eve, he wants to create shamelessness, when he gets to the level of creating shamelessness, people will do things they're not supposed to do. Now Lyla, and I have to say that today's world so much has happened, that people are questioning every part of the core of humanity today.
Therefore they're questioning what humans are the question the gender, the questioning, whether there's even more than two genders, the questioning how many different rights they've got to do what they want with their bodies with each other. And all of it is like well, if I want to do it
or not can do it.
If I want do I can do
a what it says Suhana liner hola Khurana one of the things that shaytan does. It says the Holy Quran in surah baqarah. When Taku Allahu Allah tala mon first he starts making you do something shameful This is his aim. So this is incident number two is number 169. In Nanaia Murakami su shaytan will tell you to use to commit some evil will fascia commit something which is obscene. What antetokounmpo Allah him Allah tala mon, then shaytan will want you to say things about Allah which you have no, no knowledge of, he's gonna make you make make those statements. So imagine this. There are Muslims amongst us now who are trying to justify these actions in the name of religion
and the appointing doctrine, and they say, Well, God would allow me to do this because God is so merciful. God is so understanding if God is so understanding is so merciful. And he created me like this. And I have these feelings that God gave me these feelings. And if God gave me these feelings, he wants me to express my feelings. You guys because I'm Santa are losing you, you guys and science and art can be very can get to the details. Because otherwise, I might get handcuffed and you know, taken away, right. Did you do you guys understand? Yeah. Have you understand because the world has totally changed and this is what this is what shaytan said. In fact, if you look in the Quran,
you'll see shaytan actually said this, he said
in one of the
His tactics and one of his promises that he made.
This is in Surah Nisa. So number four
is number 117.
When you're the owner Illa shape and Marina Marina there are certain people who will invoke the shader and they will call him what Carla in the next verse he says, what are the hidden and evadne cannot see them my fluevog Allah will Lana Humala, Romania know what I don't know. Shaytan says that I'll be at them. And what I'm trying to do is I'll try and change the the people who are actually worshipping God, he's going to try and make a change within them. He even said, Well, I am running for Allah, you know, Allah, I will order them so that they they change the creation of God.
However, Allah created them, they will want to change that he'll try and get to the extent. In fact, one of his ultimate things he wants to do with us is he wants to put us in Kufa. He's not going to stop until he makes us go towards disbelief. And you know what the one thing that happens when you go to displease
the shaytan will carry on until he said what color live in Sonic full, He will say to the human being a become a disbeliever. Like he'll actually make him do something that will be of the nature of disbelief. But when the person does something of the nature of disbelief, do you know what the shader will do next?
The shader will say, Well, you know what?
I've never done anything like that.
Right? So let me give you the verse of that soon, but 59 I am number 16.
cameras and in shape and color in in Sonic for like the shaytan when he tells the human being a
disbelief, felon maka Farah when the human disbelieves Allah anybody Minka in a half Lara bellami. The shaytan says, Hey,
I'm not a disbeliever
I acquit myself of you. You're a disbeliever I told you to disbelieve. you disbelieve.
I'm not going to disbelieve. I'm acquitting myself of you because I shaytan I fear Allah.
Do you guys understand? You know, shaytan shaytan might do anything but he's he's really, really bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad. Gene. Okay, right. But the one thing he's not going to do is he's not going to deny the existence of God. He knows his limits.
He's not going to exist there. He's not going to deny the existence of God. The people who deny the existence of God they go beyond shaytan
he says he says India I look at the Quran. The Quran says India half of a horrible admin. He says I fear Allah The Lord of the worlds shaytan says this. He says you become Catholic. You become capitalists you me. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, I disappeared and I didn't bother to Adam. That was my that was my disability, but I'm not gonna go that far. I'm not gonna go that far. Now look how craft is and the owner might have said that you know, there's the Hellfire has got seven different doors. And it's got seven different levels. They've said in nanoknife Akina fedorko castellina. Now the hypocrites will be at the bottom of hellfire. And that will be the hottest part
of hellfire. They say that above that is going to be the mashiki those who are associated partners with Allah. So it's a little degree less hot than that, but it's still hot. And the one above that is other people who denied God.
The people who denied God. That's like the fifth level. So seventh level is an African six level is those people who
associate partner machine, the fifth level are those who denied God. And the fourth level is he believes
he gets a relatively better place than those below him in janome, though, he's still in a lot of pain, but he gets a little rare, relatively better place. Why? Because he didn't go that far.
And his ultimate thing is to make us go and utter things that we're not supposed to say about Allah azza wa jal, you know, he will make you believe that I'm a super hammer. Look at it. We've got 1400 years of tradition, 1400 years of tradition. Today, there are certain Muslims who are saying that certain things in our culture and the way we believe them for 1400 years, the saying will It's not like that those scholars they were they were in Dark Ages, those scholars never understood the world was different at that time. Now we've got freedom of choice. So let's all come and embrace and Let's all try and undo the things that they never understood. We're going to understand today.
So the whole thing is to change the meaning that we've had for 1400 years is like well let's let's
do with all of this.
And that's exactly that's a big I'm sure we'll be sitting on a rocking chair and is rocking and
I couldn't have had a better day date night on a roller coaster right now I'm gonna write the acronym had a better chance than this to get p because now now these people have gone beyond what he would have, what he would have made them do now they're questioning this the Quran that they want to change the laws of Allah azza wa jal from the Quran because of the modern day because of scientific revelations, whatever it is. And and I need to say this, you know, sometimes I don't know, man, sometimes
I sound like you're baffled.
are humans above animals or animals above humans? Can you answer that question for me? Tell me this. You guys will scared right now? You don't know the answer to that? Yeah.
are humans above animals? are animals above human selling?
I took a long time to say that man, come on. He was above animals. Why? Because Allah has made us more intelligent. Allah has given us speech. Allah has given us communication, you know, he's given us a lot more than any other, you know, animal in the whole animal kingdom. So we're above them. So when it comes from one learning from the other, should animals learn from humans, if there's anything to learn all humans learn from animals, I know certain things we can learn from animals, that let's not deny that, somebody know that. Sometimes they've studied ants, and they've seen how ants move across trains, and how they don't clash with one another. And they've tried to make
certain things in the real world. Based on that sometime they've seen birds and how they fly and tried to take something from the techniques of flying, and bring it back to the you know, the aerospace, whatever it is to try and make some engineering happen. That's all fine. But to look at animal behavior, and say, Well, you know what animals are doing it. So therefore, we're going to do it. Like for example, animals are always naked. So therefore, we as humans, our ultimate thing should be that we should start off naked.
And then a minute.
I don't think we should go that far. If you know, if you
say that animals are naked, that's a natural state to be in, we're born naked. We got no clothes on our bodies. Therefore, humans number one position number one, you know, thing should be that you should be naked. And having clothes is like a secondary thing. Why? And then they went on to say that what if animals do this amongst themselves? Then humans should do this amongst themselves? Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie. Look, there's cannibalism amongst certain animals, certain animals kill one another. Like for example, a lion will come into another lions den. He'll kill the other lion. Once he kills the other line, all the columns of the other line, he's gonna kill all of them. Because he
wants his own kids without lionesses. He's gonna kill every single cup. We know this from nature.
You watch the nature documentaries, he will come in kilala cubs, then he'll reproduce. He wants his own cubs in that in that den. In that territory of his so what should you do that if I get married to another woman, I should kill all the kids? Because I want my kids I don't want to see her kids. Is that what we're gonna do?
There's cannibalism sometimes animals eat each other. They eat each other one I mean there's there's a horrible things that have happened in animal world but we don't take we don't take an example from that and use it for ourselves now the animal world is the animal world but what my point is this that imagine this that humans have got to the level where they don't even you know you know that you know the one of the one of the biggest things that the devil does want the biggest tricks is like the Houdini.
Houdini Do you guys know who the Houdini was, right? This magician? Houdini have this act that he will disappear.
So I'm calling it the Houdini act of the shader. The Houdini actually shaytan is that he makes people do what he told them to do. And in the end, they don't even believe that he was there.
Don't even believe in the devil. A lot of these people who have gone astray they don't even believe the devil exists. Can you imagine how much of a laugh the devil is having? We know the devil is true. We know we believe in this because of the Quran. The Quran has told us that the devil is around the devil does is the devil does that. We know that. And his mission is to take us to a Jana these people out there who are believing in some of this stuff. They believe that the devil doesn't even exist.
So made up humans made this a human
Humans made up Hellfire humans made of Jenna. That's what they say. A lot of them are they start with this a philosophy is that philosophy. Humans wanted other humans to be scared. So they said, oh, there's going to be the ultimate Jannah with ultimate punishment, and there's going to be ultimate agenda sees you strive for agenda. So they said everything that Jesus said, Everything Moses said, Everything Mohamed Salah Rossum said, or as I said, Amazon, I said, Everything His Prophet said, they said to try and control the people.
That's what the thing. So these are made of things, angels are made up the thing, this doesn't exist, you know, because we've checked from our scientific methods, we've never seen an angel, we've never seen a devil.
So now scientific thing becomes like the ultimate way of testing all of this. But we know that there are many things that are there beyond what science can even reach. In fact, right now what Allah is doing to them is a lie still teaching them that they still haven't discovered the heavens of the earth. Every day, there's new information coming about the cosmos, every day, they're discovering new planets every other day is discovering something in space, which they never knew yesterday. Now they're discovering things under the earth, deep down in the blue sea. Now they're going deeper and deeper, they've got new technology, they're going deeper into the seas, and they find new stuff, new
creatures of god they never saw before.
There's deep caves. There's this recently I read. In Russia, there's a cave that goes I think, a few kilometres beneath ground sea level. And they just they need to know what they do to go and discover this cave. It takes them one week to go down, and one week to come up one week to climb down and one week to come back up. And they're discovering things that they never knew before.
And how are we supposed to say that, you know, we're we're sort of ahead of all of this. And we're going to use all of this to deny what the existence of Allah azza wa jal, you know what he's told us that is happening around us anyway.
What shaytan will do, I've just got about another 10 minutes left, and then I'll then I'll finish Sharla. What she will do is I will use these texts and his tactics are that he'll give you something which you see, he'll make you very likeable to you, but he won't tell you what's inside it, he won't make you feel what's inside it. For example, a person might see that there's a lot of benefit for me to do this particular action.
He might make you go into a crowd of people, and they're very likable to you because of some reason, but they won't tell you that those people are going to corrupt you.
He will make you feel that they're going to corrupt you he can take a person so one of the other ones is he's going to try and make some kind of argumentation start this in Surah Surah Anam
why initiating Allah you lay your head out in the shelter in the devil's will tell you one of the trends make you a new jersey lucam he wants to make you argue
argumentation is one way that he's gonna get what some of us to fight with one another. He might take us and he might make us believe something that is not even there.
Something that we think some good thing that we think is gonna happen but you know what? He's gonna take us to Mars. So either way. Now what's the what's the, what's the solution to all of this? What Allah has told us? Many drawers in the Quran to save and protect ourselves from the shaytan one thing is that, you know, we're in our daily lives. Like I said, there's a lot of new ASIC an ASIC is when I've said this before the mind has to connect with the law, the more the mind connects with a law the tongue might be busy with a degree of a law that's one thing that's good, but the mind is the main thing with the heart and the mind think of Allah azza wa jal then you making it difficult
for the shaytan to come near you. Now Allah has given us some is in the Holy Quran. One of the if you can, or one of the draws you can say is that was in the Quran Surah Surah number 23 and number 97 Allah says say this Robbie owl would be coming hamazon to share pain but our big problem in
our law I seek your protection from the craps of the shade on and I seek your protection from the fact that share our theme of the devils will come in my presence will either be Falak Filipinas a huge huge things against the shaytan okay if you want to get that protection was was awesome like I said to you used to recite hello hello hello I had three times louder will fill up three times could have written as three times after macgibbon After further
I too could see is another one. In fact I too could see is one that shaytan will I mean it's a big one for protection of wealth.
If you want to ever protect any wealth, anything anything valuable, just read Atul cusi because Allah will give you that protection if you want to protect yourself with advocacy. If you want to save yourself from nightmares, if you ever get nightmares or you know that some nephew niece or son, daughter of us gets night nightmares, read adequacies blow on them. If you read advocacy before you go to sleep and you blowing yourself shaytan can come to you that night, he can't show you any dreams at night, trust me, if you see any dreams is either from your own thinking, or he's from Alaska, he can't come he can't come to you. The recitation of the Quran keeps the shaytan away, the
degree of Allah keeps the shaytan away salah and having again having the mind connected, keeps the shaytan away. And if a person if a person wants to
make sure that you have a life where you know you're going to stay away from the from the shaytan and the shaytan, you know, not coming near you, then it's the amount of good actions you do over time, the more good actions you do over time, the more collective good action you do on a daily basis, that tougher it is for shaytaan to continue. You've got a massive overhand over the shoulder. You've got you've got a massive strength over the shape and if you do what you're doing so you know the basic things, you do your Salah, you do your liquid, you look after your you know, your drawers, you try and you try and do what you have to do what Allah has told us in the Quran, and the sooner
we try our best to do that the more of these actions we do, the more difficult it is for the shaytan to come near me and to near you. And he finds it difficult otherwise, he's an enemy that will try one way or another way. And in the Quran. He said this in the Quran. He said he will come from the front he will come from behind you will come from the right side, you come from the left side, he'll come from all directions This is in Surah
Surah number seven, I am number
17 he says I'll come in front of them I'll come from behind them aka from the writers outcome from the left side well I tagged you do accela who shaqiri and our law you will not find most of them to be thankful when i when i when i get them. So you know not being thankful, not mean thankful is actually a way of shaytan getting getting towards towards the human beings not being thankful. So with this, what I will say to you is that may Allah azza wa jal protect us from the Shaitaan keep us away from the shaden when we go now, when you're going now from this session, now, just try and think I need to be in some form of Vicar of Allah, just remembering a legendary marketer. Remember,
you might be roaming my web, if you find that, well, I'm in a sinful nature and I want to get out of you know, the sinful nature. Spend some time in the dark. I'm gonna give you some advice. Spend some time in the dark people are scared of the dark.
I don't know why you're gonna have to live in the dark when you go in the grave anyway.
As I'm telling you spend time with that. What I mean by that is, look, you sit down, sit on the floor, sit in the dark, sit at nighttime, sit in a place where you've probably got other things around you. And just for a few moments, lie down
in the dark on the ground, and then say to yourself, I've in my grave,
to sink in the grave. And just lie down the still without any sound, anything, anything around, you just lie down on the ground, on a bed on the ground. And think Bill, this is my grave
and spend a good few moments thinking that I'm in my grave.
And all the dunion everything is behind me. It's above me. It's up there somewhere. So there's no relationship I've got with anybody. There's no one that I'm connected to. There's not you know, all the stress you had all the things that you can't you came across all those a Monday. You're now in your grave. Just say I'm in my grave right now. So none of that applies to me now. arguments with somebody all of their problems are all above there is way way above me is not touching me right now. Right now is me my Acura and in my grave that wakes you up that wakes you up and makes you think you know what? It's serious. It's not a job to go to the afra somebody's job to take these actions. What
are we doing to the actual MLS? Don't forgive us? And if anybody has sinned, then towba is the way and if you think that I can't get away with you know, I've done a big civics in listen you can do what are the big sin you you want. As long as you're alive and you breathing? You can repent to Allah azza wa jal if you've hurt another human being, of course, you have to go to the other human being and you have to get forgiveness from
them to, to the best of what you can. But whatever you cincin you've done, you just think to yourself, I know what I'm still alive and breathing. I haven't seen the angel of death. Once you see the angel of death, you can't make repentance. But if you haven't seen the angel of death, use the dose of repentance are open for you. You can repent from anything you've done, be very clear to us. It was a mistake, I will try my best, absolute best never to do it again. Do your best again and again to come back to and say, I'm never going to do again, never going to do again. Make your intention very, very strong. And try and prove to yourself that you're going to stop that sin. Once
you've done that you'll see over time, you'll feel that going away from you. You'll feel that strain and the stress of that sim going away from you. And that's that's, you know, once you've left us in, it's a sign that Allah has forgiven you.
Okay, can I have any questions anybody has got before we end this session?
