By Sh Sha’rawii

Almighty Allah (SWT) wants us to know that Iblis (shaytan) seduces us and that he is our enemy. He (Al-Shytan) deceives us with wishes that never come true and whispers to us with lies that has nothing to do with the reality and he tries to distract us from the path of love and obedience of Allah. So there was the experience of Adam and Hawa’a (AS); Allah made them live in Heaven and allowed them to eat from all its fruits except for one tree, exactly in the same way Al-Haqq (SWT) allowed us so many things in this life and prevented us from the least.

Al-Shaytan - promises man to let him fall into sins and disobedience. And for man not to fear Iblis, get overwhelmed by this fear and forget about serving Allah, He (SWT) informed him that Al-Shaytan is weak and that he cannot have power over man unless man listens to him and obeys him. And He has told us that Al-Shytan has no power to make us do what we do not want to do, for Allah did not give him the power of oppression to force us to disobey nor did He (SWT) give him the power of persuasion to convince us to do sins. Allah (SWT) says: “Al-Shytan has no strength to oppress or convince us with wrongdoing.” (Ayah 22 from Surat Ibrahim).

Then Allah (Ta’alal) wanted to ease us from all of this, so He told us that if we are sincere in serving Him and honest in our love to him then He (SWT) will save us from the evil of Al-Shaytan. And this is proven in His words (SWT) where Iblis (Satan)] said: “O my Lord! Because you misled me, I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on the earth, and I shall mislead them all. Except Your servants among them, sincere and purified (by Your grace).” Allah said: “This (Way of My sincere servants) is indeed a Way that leads straight to Me. Certainly, you shall have no authority over My servants, except those who put themselves in the wrong and follow you)” Ayat 39-42 from surat Al-Hijr

So by that, Al-Haqq (SWT) showed us the way to overcome Al-Shytan, and all what we have to do is to seek the protection of the deivil form Allah and be sincere in serving Him so that our minds do not get paralyzed with fear from Iblis and his seduction.

Recently, I bought a cartridge for my printer. It came in a box mounted on a card and wrapped in plastic. When I took it apart, I found that the printer cartridge itself was actually quite small, but they made the packaging unnecessarily large to make it harder to steal and to make the customer feel better about the high price.

I pointed this out to my wife and mentioned how my weight gain over the years of our marriage should have the same effect: It made me seem more valuable and also made me harder for other women to steal.

She's still laughing.
