Knowing the footsteps of Shaytaan

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
This old enemy of Bani Aadam the children of Aadam (alayhi as-salam) in his pursuit of trickery and schemes, is determined to embark boldly in the battle against the course of time. He plots and plans in organized stages and continues in his way, one fight after another. He executes his politics with man step by step.
Allaah aza wa'jal says;
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ ادْخُلُواْ فِي السِّلْمِ كَآفَّةً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ
"O ye who believe! Enter into Islam whole-heartedly; and follow not the footsteps of the evil one; for he is to you an avowed enemy"
Other examples of his planning include:
  • Shaytaan causing one to be absentminded and forgetful
  • Shaytaan luring you into destruction by persuasion
  • Whispering of Shaytaan and his weakening of the connection with Allaah
  • Shaytaan beautifying disobedience and sin
  • Shaytaan causing fear and terror
  • Shaytaan ordering with disobedience and embarking upon sinful actions
  • Shaytaan instigating anger, fury and incitement
  • Shaytaan leading man to confusion and restlessness
  • Shaytaan instigates malicious joy and then leaves and disassociates from man


May Allaah protect us from the evil of our enemy shaytaan and grant us of that which is good in the dunya and akhirra ameen.
