Episode Notes

Nouman Ali Khan delves into the strategy of Shaytan and also the final dialogue of Iblees. Shaytan is the ultimate enemy we have and is a relentless and pertinent one we have till the end of time. How is the devil going to come at us and pull us under his wing?

Some of the origins of the word Shukr are illustrated and how some of us have Shukr cultivated within us and is displayed. 

Shaytan is angry at being admonished for being arrogant to Allah and swears that he will make mankind even more arrogant than him and even ungrateful. So, arrogance is a lack of manifestation of gratitude. Shaytan comes from 4 directions at us and he wants to prove our ingratitude from our hearts and diminish our optimistic relation with Allah. We should fight the temptations and let not greed get the better of us because we should firmly believe that Allah will never abandon us in moments of crises.

Shaytan attacks from the right by:

  • Convincing you that you own your guidance. So you start to pity others, deviating away from your own guidance and focusing on theirs. Ultimately believing you are the source of guidance and take part in others’ personal journey to Allah. 
  • Using the word of Allah for evil purposes (Having a personal agenda above the word of Allah)
  • Resetting the priorities of Islam 
  • Defining your own idea of a ‘good character’
  • Misjudging people based on their presentation. Focusing on the difference in insignificant worshipping styles

Shaytan attacks from the left by:

  • Removing your motivation to engage in beneficial acts by slowing your ability to do good things. This way he has room to fill up your heart with bad things. 
  • Eliminating the remembrance of Allah from your life so that you are not alarmed in Haram situations and to then fill your heart with despair. 
  • By beautifying sins for you and pulling you towards his direction (the left). Ultimately deviating you from the path of Allah. 
  • To convince us that you have no respect, that you are filthy and invaluable in the eyes of Allah.
  • Greed and  Wanting more than just the blessings of Allah. 
  • Once he gets you evolved in sin, he’ll keep you thereby convincing you that you need it.
