We Should Never Forget That…(2)

The Existence Of Shaytaan:

إِنَّ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنَ لَكُمۡ عَدُوٌّ۬ فَٱتَّخِذُوهُ عَدُوًّاۚ إِنَّمَا يَدۡعُواْ حِزۡبَهُ ۥ لِيَكُونُواْ مِنۡ أَصۡحَـٰبِ ٱلسَّعِيرِ

“Shaytaan is your enemy, so treat him as an enemy. He summons his party so they will be among the people of the Searing Blaze” (Surah Fatir 36: 6)

We Should Never Forget That:

  • Shaytaan is our greatest enemy.
  • Shaytaan patiently waits to deceive people at every moment.
  • Shaytaan will try to hinder you from being grateful to your Lord by making you forget the blessings.
  • Shaytaan wants you to forget that there is good in every situation and thereby hinder us from putting our trust in Allah.
  • Shaytaan will try to instill carelessness, laziness, anger, heedlessness, selfishness and forgetfulness in us.
  • Shaytaan wants to hinder us from our acts of worship and conducting ourselves responsibly towards Allah.
  • Shaytaan has no influence whatsoever on true believers.
  • Seeking refuge in Allah when a deceptive suggestion from Shaytaan provokes us will bring us relief.
  • Forgetfulness is Shaytaan’s greatest weapon.
  • Shaytaan wants to hinder us from keeping our mind occupied with Allah’s remembrance.
  • Arrogance and resisting truth are attributes of the accursed Shaytaan.
  • Shaytaan will try to fill us with false hopes.
  • Shaytaan never wants us to engage in deeds that will please Allah.
  • Shaytaan’s primary aim is to make us earn eternal torment, as he himself will.
  • Shaytaan has no authority over people, but merely calls on them.

To Remember Allah:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱذۡكُرُواْ ٱللَّهَ ذِكۡرً۬ا كَثِيرً۬ا

“O ye who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance.” (Surah Ahzaab 33: 41)

We Should Never Forget That:

  • To keep our mind occupied with the remembrance of Allah.
  • To remember Allah when we are standing, sitting and lying on our side.
  • That nothing except the remembrance of Allah removes our distress, the complications in our affairs, and provides us relief of heart.
  • That nothing (trade or commerce) should distract us from the remembrance of Allah.
  • That remembering Allah is the greatest.

That Death Will Come Upon Us At Any Time:

كُلُّ نَفۡسٍ۬ ذَآٮِٕقَةُ ٱلۡمَوۡتِ‌ۗ وَنَبۡلُوكُم بِٱلشَّرِّ وَٱلۡخَيۡرِ فِتۡنَةً۬‌ۖ وَإِلَيۡنَا تُرۡجَعُونَ

“Every self will taste death. We test you with both good and evil as a trial. And you will be returned to Us.” (Surah al-Anbiya’21: 35)

We Should Never Forget That:

  • Everyone, including ourselves and our family members will certainly die.
  • The time of death is determined by our Lord.
  • Everyone’s death is predetermined and that no one can put off that predetermined time when it comes.
  • At death, we will return to our Lord.
  • Our body will be of no value whatsoever once we die.
  • When placed in the earth the body will undergo a rapid process of decay.
  • The repentance made at the moment of death may not be accepted.
  • All the forms of weakness we have in this world are given us to remind death.
  • Thinking about death will purify us of all false ambitions.
  • We must pray to Allah to take us as a Muslim at the time of our death.
