BEWARE OF Shaytan's work ( Beautifying Falsehood-Satan' s
mission )


And whosoever turns away from the remembrance of the Most
Beneficent (i.e. this Qur'aan and worship of Allah), We appoint for him
Shaytan to be a Qareen (an intimate companion) to him. And verily, they
(Shayateen) hinder them from the Path (of Allah), but they think that
they are guided aright!'
[(43): 36-37]


This verse determines the task of Qareen;

a) Hindering from the path of Allah,
b) and confusing the
person into believing that he is upon the truth.



Hindrance from the path of Allah cannot be done
except by beautifying falsehood and making it look good in one's eyes.
Not letting one realize that the Sharee'ah of Allah is being opposed.
Man spends his whole life with this waswasa until he recognizes the
truth but it is too late!! On that day, he will complain and,


'he says (to his Qareen), 'Would that between me and you were
the distance of the two easts (or the east and west)' a worst (type of)
companion (indeed)!'
[Soorah az-Zukhruf (43): 36-37]


Imam Ibnul-Qayyim said in this context, 'One of his (Shaytan)
plots is that he always bewitches people's mind until they are deceived.
No one is saved from his sorcery except those whom Allah Wills. He
makes attractive to the mind that which will harm it, until a person
thinks of something as most beneficial, and he (Shaytan) discourages him
from that which is the most beneficial, until he thinks that it will
harm him. La ilaaha illAllah, how may people have been tempted by this
sorcery!' [Quoted from, ´┐ŻAalam al-Jinn was-Shayateen by Umar S.
Al-Ashqar]


Shaytan made the idea of eating from the forbidden tree appear
attractive to Adam by giving it a beautiful and attractive name. He kept
claiming to Adam that the forbidden tree was 'the tree of eternal
life,' and that eating from it would make him live forever in Paradise,
or would make him one of the angels


Your Lord did not forbid you this tree save you should become
angels or become of the immortals.
[(7):20] until Adam obeyed
Shaytan, and was subsequently expelled from Paradise.



Shaytan may beautify a sinful action between a man
and woman


The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu
alaihi wa-sallam) said, 'Men are not tempted by anything more than
women.' [Agreed upon] For this reason, women are commanded to cover
their bodies and men are commanded to lower their gaze. He (sallallahu
alaihi wa-sallam) forbade being alone with a non-mahram woman and said
that no man is ever alone with a non-mahram woman but Shaytan is the
third one. This is because Shaytan may beautify a sinful action for them
and thus, we must try to subdue Shaytan and drive away his deception
and act in accordance with the guidelines of Allah's Messenger
(sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam), who said, 'The woman comes in the form of
a Shaytan and goes in the form of the Shaytan. So if one of you sees a
woman that pleases him, he should go to his family and that will get rid
of what is in him.' [Saheeh Muslim]



The Qur'aan relates a number of examples of how
Shaytan beautifies falsehood and Kufr for his enemies and they go along
what he intends for them, like Saba and her kingdom. The hoopee bird
informed Suleiman (alaihis-salaam) about their condition,


'I found her and her people worshiping the sun instead of
Allah, and Shaytan has made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and has
barred them from (Allah's) Way, so they have no guidance,'
[Soorah
an-Naml (27): 24]


This trick of Shaytan is very dangerous, because if falsehood
is made to appear attractive to a person, how would he strive towards
achieving the good and repelling the evil?


Allah says in the Qur'aan about Thamud, the people of Salih
(alaihis-salaam) ,


'And We have assigned them (Shayateen) intimate companions (in
this world), who have made fair-seeming to them, what was before them
(from the Hereafter that there is no resurrection, Paradise or Hell) and
what was behind them (he beautified for them that the world was very
old, and there was no Creator except nature).'
[(41): 25] [See,
Tafseer al-Kabeer of Rajhi 27/103]


And this beautification of the world leads to turning away from
the Deen and mocking at the believers,


'Beautified is the life of this world for those who disbelieve,
and they mock at those who believe.'
[(2): 212] SubhanAllah, is this
not what we witness today from the Darwinists.


The people of Thamud were, in fact, the most famous people for
their intelligence, and Shaytan approached them through this door and
enticed them, so they became stubborn and argued and were destroyed,


'And Ad and Thamud (people)! And indeed (their destruction) is
clearly apparent to you from their (ruined) dwellings. Shaytan made
their deeds fair-seeming to them, and turned them away from the (Right)
Path, though they were intelligent. '
[(29): 38]


How many intelligent people have been fooled by Shaytan today,
and from their false thoughts are communism, secularism and feminism!!
This is because Shaytan has beautified the falsehood for them.


This has been the way of Shaytan with every nation as Allah
says,


'By Allah, We indeed sent (Messengers) to the
nations before you (O Muhammad), but Shaytan made their deeds
fair-seeming to them. So he (Shaytan) is their Wali (helper) today (i.e.
in this world), and theirs will be a painful torment.'



Imam Ibn Katheer writes in the Tafseer of this
verse, 'He sent Messengers to the nations of the past, and they were
rejected. You, O Muhammad, have an example in your brothers among the
Messengers, so do not be distressed by your people's rejection. As for
the idolater's rejection of the Messengers, the reason for this is that
the Shaytan made their deeds attractive to them.'


So he (Shaytan) is their Wali (helper) today,

' meaning they will be suffering punishment while Shaytan is
their only helper, and he cannot save them, so they have no one to
answer their calls for help, and theirs is a painful punishment.'
[
(16): 63]


With this trick, Shaytan befools mankind into deceiving their
own selves and making the prohibitions of Allah lawful for themselves.
An interesting story is mentioned in the Qur'aan about the people of
Sabbath among the Jews, whom Allah forbade to fish on
Saturday (Sabbath) as a trial for them.


And ask them (O Muhammad) about the town that was by the sea,
when they transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: when their fish
came to them openly on the Sabbath day,
and did not come to them on the day they had no Sabbath. Thus We made a
trial of them for they used to rebel.'
[Soorah al-A'raf (7): 163]


So, 'They began using deceitful means to avoid honoring the
Sabbath by placing nets, ropes and artificial pools of water for the
purpose of fishing before the Sabbath (i.e., on Friday).
When the fish came in abundance on Saturday as usual, they were caught
in the ropes and nets for the rest of Saturday. During the night, the
Jews collected the fish after the Sabbath ended. When they did that,
Allah changed them from humans into monkeys, the animals having the form
closest to humans. Their evil deeds and deceit appeared lawful on the
surface, but they were in reality wicked. This is why their punishment
was compatible with their crime. Imam Abu Abdullah bin Battah reported
that Abu Hurayrah (radhi allahu anhu) said that the Messenger of Allah
said, 'Do not commit what the Jews committed, breaching what Allah has
forbidden, by resorting to the lowest types of deceit.' [See, Tafseer
Ibn Katheer]


Imam Ibnul-Qayyim writes, 'From him (Shaytan), his followers
learned the method of calling haraam things by names which people find
attractive. So they called wine - the mother of joy, and they called
intoxicants - morsels of delight, and they called Riba (usury) business
dealing' (end quote from Wabil as-Sayyib). Similarly, today singing,
dancing, acting, making statues are all called, 'art!' But with such
devious behavior man can only fool himself and none can deceive Allah,
the All-Wise.



Shaytan corrupts people's heart and souls through
singing and music


Imam Ibnul-Qayyim (rahimahullah) writes in Igaathat al-Lahfaan
(1/242), 'Among the plots and traps of the enemy of Allah, with which he
seeks to trap those who posses little knowledge, reasoning and
religious commitment and trap the ignorant is the listening to whistling
and clapping of hands and singing accompanied by forbidden musical
instruments, which closes people's hearts to the Qur'aan and makes them
devoted to immorality and sin. This is the 'Qur'an'
of the Shaytan, an impenetrable barrier which blocks them from the Most
Merciful. This is the means that leads to sodomy and fornication, by
means of which the Shaytan ensnares the hearts of those who follow
falsehood and makes it appear attractive to them by way of deceit and
trickery. He inspires them by means of specious arguments to regard it
as something good, so they accept this idea and for the sake of argument
to regard it as something good, so they accept this idea and for the
sake of singing they forsake the Qur'aan.
