How could you and how can you when they’re your enemies?!

…قَالَ فَبِعِزَّتِكَ لَأُغۡوِيَنَّهُمۡ أَجۡمَعِينَ … إِلَّا عِبَادَكَ مِنۡهُمُ ٱلۡمُخۡلَصِينَ…

[Iblîs (Satan)] said: “By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all, (82) “Except Your chosen slaves amongst them (faithful, obedient, true believers of Islâmic Monotheism).” (83)

[Surat Sad]

~

قَالَ أَرَءَيۡتَكَ هَـٰذَا ٱلَّذِى ڪَرَّمۡتَ عَ

لَىَّ لَٮِٕنۡ أَخَّرۡتَنِ إِلَىٰ يَوۡمِ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ لَأَحۡتَنِكَنَّ ذُرِّيَّتَهُ ۥۤ إِلَّا قَلِيلاً۬

 قَالَ ٱذۡهَبۡ فَمَن تَبِعَكَ مِنۡهُمۡ فَإِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ جَزَآؤُكُمۡ جَزَآءً۬ مَّوۡفُورً۬ا

وَٱسۡتَفۡزِزۡ مَنِ ٱسۡتَطَعۡتَ مِنۡہُم  بِصَوۡتِكَ وَأَجۡلِبۡ عَلَيۡہِم بِخَيۡلِكَ وَرَجِلِكَ وَشَارِكۡهُمۡ فِى ٱلۡأَمۡوَٲلِ

وَٱلۡأَوۡلَـٰدِ وَعِدۡهُمۡ‌ۚ وَمَا يَعِدُهُمُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنُ إِلَّا غُرُورًا

 إِنَّ عِبَادِى لَيۡسَ لَكَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ سُلۡطَـٰنٌ۬‌ۚ وَكَفَىٰ بِرَبِّكَ وَڪِيلاً۬

[Iblîs (Satan)] said: “See this one whom You have honoured above me, if You give me respite (keep me alive) to the Day of Resurrection, I will surely seize and mislead his offspring (by sending them astray) all but a few!” (62) (Allâh) said: “Go, and whosoever of them follows you, surely! Hell will be the recompense of you (

all) – an ample recompense. (63) “And befool them gradually those whom you can among them with your voice (i.e. songs, music, and any other call for Allâh’s disobedience), make assaults on them with your cavalry and your infantry, share with them wealth and children (by tempting them to earn money by illegal ways – usury or by committing illegal sexual intercourse), and make promises to them.” But Satan promises them nothing but deceit (64) “Verily! My slaves (i.e the true believers of Islâmic Monotheism), – you have no authority over them. And All-Sufficient is your Lord as a Guardian.” (65)

[Surat’l Israa]

~

وَإِذۡ قُلۡنَا لِلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةِ ٱسۡجُدُواْ لِأَدَمَ فَسَجَدُوٓاْ إِلَّآ إِبۡلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنۡ أَمۡرِ رَبِّهِ ۦۤ‌ۗ

أَفَتَتَّخِذُونَهُ ۥ وَذُرِّيَّتَهُ ۥۤ أَوۡلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِى وَهُمۡ لَكُمۡ عَدُوُّۢ‌ۚ بِئۡسَ لِلظَّـٰلِمِينَ بَدَلاً۬

And (remember) when We said to the angels;”Prostrate yourselves unto Adam.” So they prostrated themselves except Iblîs (Satan). He was one of the jinn; he disobeyed the Command of his Lord. Will you then take him (Iblîs) and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you? What an evil is the exchange for the Zâlimûn (polytheists, and wrong-doers). (50)

[Surat’l Kahf]

Ya ‘Aziz, do not let our desires and fears humiliate us! Please make us of those few (MukhlaSeen) whom Shaytan would have no authority over. Let our weaknesses as women not overcome what this deen demands of us and make us of those who are interested in nothing except Your Pleasure. And with that Pleasure as an incentive only, inspire us to seek others’ pleasure. Guide us to everything khayr for we have no knowledge and we have a tendency to follow our negative emotions. And please distance us from matters that displease You for how can we bear to displease the One who gave us everything and everyone in our lives? Please pull us out of this calamity in our  day-to-day lives, verily it is You Alone who is Al-Mujeeb and You Alone are As-Samad, i.e. it is You Alone we turn for our needs…You are Absolute and Flawless, and we are full of utterly debasing flaws. Please save us, those whom we care for, and our next generation from the accursed Shaytan.

Ameen.
