Shaytaan-The avowed enemy
Allaah (The Most High) informed us in Soorah An-Nisaa Ayah 119 that shaytaan said:
”Verily, I will mislead them;” meaning: From the truth.
”And surely, I will arouse in them false desires”
Ibn Abbaas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa) said: He (shaytaan) desires to hinder (them) from repentance and to delay it.
