|A dialogue with shaytan|
|10/09/02 at 00:07:20|
By Sheikh: Aa’ed Al Karny
Deep at night, I had this dialogue with Shaytan. Shortly, I heard the Fajr prayer call. I wanted to go to the mosque.
He said: “The night is still long, so take a nap.”
I said: “I’m afraid I’ll miss my obligatory prayer!”
He said: “There is much time to go”
I said: “I’m afraid I’ll miss praying in congregation.”
He said: “Don’t be too harsh on yourself in worship.”
Then, I didn’t wake up until the sun had already risen.
He whispered to me again saying: “Don’t feel sorry for what you have missed. The day is still full of many other chances.”
As soon as I started mentioning Allah, he brought to my mind all kinds of thoughts.
I said: “You are diverting me from making Duaa’.”
He said: “Just delay it until the night.” Shortly, I intended to repent.
He said: “Enjoy your young age before it comes to an end!"
I said: “I’m too afraid of death.”
He said: “But your life will not end now.”
I started to memorize Qur’an
He said: “Entertain yourself with songs.”
I said: “But it’s an unlawful thing to do.”
He said: “Scholars differed on that matter"
I said: “The evidences from the Prophet’s [saw] sayings are with me”
He said: “But you know their sources are weak!”
A beautiful lady passed by, so I lowered my gaze.
He said: “What’s wrong? It’s just a gaze”!
I said: “A gaze puts me in a dangerous place.”
He said: “It’s lawful to contemplate in grace.”
I went to the Kaaba (The Ancient House of Allah). There he was with me on the way.
He said: “What’s the reason behind this trip?”
I said: “To make ‘Umrah’.”
He said: “You have risked dangers (on your travel) to do this Umrah. Don’t you know that good deeds have plenty of other doors?!!”
I said: “But my life needs a change for the better”
He said: “Don’t you know that you can’t enter Paradise through your deeds?"
I went to give advice to people.
He said: ”Don’t put yourself in an embarassing situation."
I said: “But, my only aim is to benefit others.”
He said: “That’s a trap of self-admiration, and it is indeed the head of corruption.”
I said: “Tell me your opinion about some people.”
He said: “ I can answer you of the private, as well as the general.”
I said: “Ahmad ibn Hanbal?”
He said: “His calling to follow Qur'an and Sunnah was killing me.”
I said: “Ibn Taymiyyah?”
He said: “His words hit my head like a daily beating.”
I said: “Al-Bukhari?”
He said: “I can even burn my house with his book.”
I said: “Al-Hajjaj?”
He said: “I wish 1000 of men are like him. His way is cure and happiness to my colleagues of Shayateen.”
I said: “Pharaoh?”
He said: “Oh, to him victory and support we owe.”
I said: “Salahuddin, the Hero of the battle of Hatteen?”
He said: “Let us not talk of him…he brought humiliation to my sons, and buried our heads in mud.”
I said: “Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab?”
He said: “His messages were like the heavenly fiery stars that were burning my heart”
I said: “Abu Jahl?”
He said: “The best kinship and brothers we are.”
I said: “Abu Lahab?”
He said: “We are together in every step forever.”
I said: “Lenin?”
He said: “Bounded by me, with Stalin on fire.”
I said: “nude magazines?”
He said: “Are my holy books.”
I said: “Satellites?”
He said: “Make people diabolical.”
I said: “Coffee Shops?”
He said: “Welcome everyone who is diverted from Allah and the right way.”
I said: “What is your duaa (athkaar)?”
He said: “Songs.”
I said: “What is your job?”
He said: “False Hopes.”
I said: “What do you think about the Markets?”
He said: “Clubs where my friends meet.”
I said: “What do you think of the Socialist party?”
He said: “It is with which I have shared all my belongings, to whom I taught all my thoughts, intentions and prayers.”
I said: “How do you misguide people?”
He said: “By desires, doubts, distracting amusements, hopes and songs.”
I said: “How do you misguide women?”
He said: “I tempt them towards showing off their beauty, and favoring the prohibited over the lawful."
I said: “How do you misguide the Scholars?”
He said: “By paving the way for them to admiration and showing off, and by planting envy and pride in their hearts.”
I said: “How do you misguide people as general?”
He said: “Through back-biting, tale-fabrication, wasting their time in things of no value and in useless cheap conversations.”
I said: “How do you misguide merchants?”
He said: “By tempting them to deal with bribery, making them hate paying charity and by making spendthriftness beloved.”
I said: “How do you misguide young people?”
He said: “By making them fall in the trap of love, reckless in following Allah’s orders and committing the prohibited.”
I said: “What do you think of “israel”, the jewish state?”
He said: “Oh, don’t try to backbite and speak ill of my beloved home country, the most dear to my heart.”
I said: “What do you think of Abu Nawwas?”
He said: “Such a respectful character. His poems really inspired me.”
I said: “And “modernity?”
He said: “The inheritors of our satanic knowledge.”
I said: “Secularity?”
He said: “That’s my belief, and its believers are the cheating magicians and creators of false hopes. We all bear same names.”
I said: “What do you think of Washington?”
He said: “The state of my beloved ones and the base for my army. Indeed it is my nation.”
I said: “What do you think of those people who call to the word of Allah?”
He said: “They are torturing me! They inflict a lot of pain and misery on me. They made me an old man with gray hair! They destroy all what I build! They make noise when I speak, read when I sing, and seek refuge from me when I show up.”
I said: “What do you say about newspapers?”
He said: “Means for wasting people’s time, especially that of the elite, and means for stealing money.”
I said: “What do you think of the BBC?”
He said: “It’s my weapon. Through it I put the poison in the honey, ignite wars between Arabs & the other nations and flatter both the oppressor and oppressed.”
I said: “What did you do with the Crow?”
He said: “I made him kill his brother and bury him under earth till he disappeared.”
I said: “What did you do with Karoon?”
He said: “I whispered to him: You son of the old man. Save the treasuries to win. You are one of the greatest men.”
I said: “What did you say to Pharaoh?”
He said: “I told him: You are the greatest one in the palace. To win say: “Isn’t it me who possess the power over Egypt?”.”
I said: “What did you say to the one who drinks wine?”
He said: “I told him you should drink this grape’s juice. It is the answer to all your problems. It wipes out your troubles. And don’t worry, you know the way to repentance and its doors are always opened for you.”
I said: “What kills you?”
He said: “Reading the verses of “Al Kursy” (the Chair). It prevents me from breathing and makes me feel I’m in an eternal prison, in a night full of misery.”
I said: “Who are the most beloved people to you?”
He said: “Singers, poets that aim at misguiding people, sin doers, and every cunning person who goes astray.”
I said: “Who is the most hateful person to you?”
He said: “Mosque-goers, everyone who kneels and prostrates to Allah, every pious and sincere worshipper, and every fighter in the cause of Allah.”
I said: “I hereby seek refuge in Allah from you.”
The moment I said so, he disappeared as though melting into the sand - and this is the liar’s end.

|[slm] Bro ,|
SubhanAllah ... this is so true :(
May Allah increase our imaan ... Insya'Allah.
i have one similar article to share with too.
A LETTER TO YOU FROM SATAN
I saw you yesterday as you began your daily chores.
You awoke without kneeling to pray Fajr.
As a matter of fact, you didn't even say Bismillah before your meals,
or pray Isha before going to bed last night.
You are so unthankful, I like that about you.
I cannot tell you how glad I am that you have not changed your way of living,
Fool, you are mine.
Remember, you and I have been going steady for years,
and I still don't love you yet.
As a matter of fact, I hate you, because I hate Allah.
I am only using you to get even with Allah.
He kicked me out of heaven, and I'm going to use you as long as possible
to pay him back.
You see, Fool, ALLAH LOVES YOU and HE has great plans in store for you.
But you have yielded your life to me,
and I'm going to make your life a living hell.
That way, we'll be together twice.
This will really hurt Allah.
Thanks to you, I'm really showing Him who's boss in your life
with all of the good times we've had.
We have been watching dirty movies, cursing people out, stealing,lying,
being hypocritical, fornicating, overeating, telling dirty jokes,gossiping,
being judgmental, back stabbing people, disrespecting adults, and those in leadership positions,
no respect for the Mosque, bad attitudes.
SURELY you don't want to give all this up.
Come on, Fool, let's burn together forever.
I've got some hot plans for us.
This is just a letter of appreciation from me to you.
I'd like to say "THANKS" for letting me use you for most of your foolish life.
You are so gullible, I laugh at you.
When you are tempted to sin, you give in HA HA HA, you make me sick.
Sin is beginning to take its toll on your life.
You look 20 years older, and now, I need new blood.
So go ahead and teach some children how to sin.
All you have to do is smoke, get drunk or drink while under-aged,cheat,
gamble, gossip, fornicate, and live being as selfish as possible.
Do all of this in the presence of children and they will do it too.
Kids are like that.
Well, Fool, I have to let you go for now.
I'll be back in a couple of seconds to tempt you again.
If you were smart, you would run somewhere, repent for your sins,
and live for Allah with what little bit of life that you have left.
It's not my nature to warn anyone, but to be your age and stillsinning,
it's becoming a bit ridiculous.
Don't get me wrong, I still hate you.
IT'S JUST THAT YOU'D MAKE A BETTER FOOL FOR ALLAH.
