[8] Self-Awareness: [The Friend Who Will Definitely Misguide and Abandon His Companion]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said:

كَمَثَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِذْ قَالَ لِلْإِنسَانِ اكْفُرْ فَلَمَّا كَفَرَ قَالَ إِنِّي بَرِيءٌ مِّنكَ إِنِّي أَخَافُ اللَّهَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ

[Their allies deceived them] like Shaitan (Satan), when he says to man: “Disbelieve in Allah.” But when (man) disbelieves in Allah, Shaitan (Satan) says: “I am free of you, I fear Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!] [59:16]

Few Reminders from the above Aayah:

Shaytaan beautifies disbelief for the human being and calls him to it. So after he is deceived by shaytaan, disbelieves and ends up in a wretched state, he will not be benefited by shaytaan, who took him as an ally and called him to disbelief; rather shaytaan frees himself from him, saying: “I am free of you, I fear Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin [mankind, jinns and all that exists]!” Meaning: Neither do I have the power to repel the punishment of Allaah from you nor can I even benefit you with something of an atom’s weight.

To be continued…InShaaAllaah
