RIS Canada... (4)

Assalamualaikum wrt wbt..

Some words to share for today..

(notes from 'Reflections from the Quran' by Imam Zaid Shakir)

What does it mean by 'syayateen attacking us from the front'? How do they attack the son of Adam as such? There are 4 ways:

1) "I will cause them to doubt in the hereafter"

2) "I will make them overly craving for the world"

3) "I will confuse then in religious issues"

4) "I will make sins appealing to them"

Imam Zaid Shakir also said that:

The syaitan is not commanding us to do bad deeds..they CAN'T command us to do anything..only Allah has the power to command. The only thing the syaitan can do is that to whisper and suggest us to do the bad deeds..and if we follow their whispering and actually commit the acts, THEN they had commanded us...

take was was (doubts) for example...syaitan loves to put doubts in our hearts and minds.."have I make wudu'?", "Have I lock the door?", "Did I just forget to do tahiyyat?" etc etc... if this happened:

1) Do zikir - remembrance of Allah, seek refuge in Allah from the syaitan...

2) Recite quran

3) Always be around the believers..
