Ramadan 2014, The 20th Day

Satan is your enemy so treat him as an enemy. He summons his party so they will be among the people of the Searing Blaze. (Surah Fatir, 6)

"There are two impulses in the soul, one from an angel which calls towards good and confirms truth; whoever finds this let him know it is from Allah and praise Him. Another impulse comes from the enemy which leads to doubt and denies truth and forbids good; whoever finds this, let him seek refuge in Allah from the accursed devil." Then he recited the verse: "The devil shows you fear of poverty and enjoins evil upon you." (Tirmidhi)

But people avoid praying because they depict it as very difficult and because satan puts pressure on them. But prayer is in fact comfortable and simple. We must pray in a relaxed manner, as our Prophet (saas) prayed. Allah says He wants things to be easy for us, not difficult. It is satan and his trickery that makes prayer impossible to perform with complicated nonsense and superstition added on afterward. Ritual cleansing is easy. You must wash your hands, arms and feet, and wet your head, and when you wet your ears and neck you will feel very relaxed. They have invented lots of complicated details so people do not pray at all. So satan foolishly thinks he has won.

Satan is the Most Dangerous Enemy to Man. However it is Very Easy For A Muslim to Neutralize the Satan

If we tell someone; "Somewhere, there is a person who is harboring a grave enmity towards you. There is nothing that he wouldn't do to give you the biggest harm one can ever give. He is a master in every form of trickery, lie, games and deceitfulness.   And he would not leave you alone until he can harm you the way he wants," how would one react?  Would it be possible for him to only say "Okay" and go on with his life without taking any precautions against that enemy and not be interested at all?

Of course the answer to that question is a "No". Every person, the minute he becomes aware of such an enemy, would pay a great attention to this matter.

However, man has a much more dangerous and ravenous enemy than any other man harboring a grave enmity against him. This enemy is the "satan".  And the satan is man's biggest and most determined enemy ever existed on Earth.

That is because there is an "end" that satan aims for a man. This end is his entering to the "endless Hell". It is not possible for the satan to leave man alone until he gets this result. This is a definitive law of Allah, He revealed in the Qur'an:

 ...And do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He truly is an outright enemy to you. (Surat al-Baqara, 168)

 I will lead them astray and fill them with false hopes. I will command them and they will cut off cattle’s ears. I will command them and they will change Allah’s creation.’ Anyone who takes satan as his protector in place of Allah has clearly lost everything. (Surat an-Nisa, 119)

 In the Qur'an Allah tells man to "treat satan as an enemy" , in the face the satan being an enemy to mankind.  In that case man should obey this command of Allah –for the approval of Allah- and make neutralizing the satan, a  prioritized aim for him.

Satan is a big enemy for man.  However Allah made it very easy for man to be saved from the evils of the satan.  In the Qur'an Allah revealed many secrets to show man the way for that. Some of those secrets are as follows:

Satan has no authority over those who believe and put their trust in their Lord. Satan only has authority over those who take him as a friend and associate others with Allah. (Surat an-Nahl, 99-100)

 Only the fact that man –by the leave of Allah- knows these secrets Allah revealed in the Qur'an is enough for him to neutralize his biggest enemy, the satan, promptly and conclusively. If man lives without forgetting that there is no power other than Allah; that neither the satan, nor man has any power and do not ascribe any partners to Allah, no matter from which aspect satan approaches him, he will take no result and will not be able to give any harm to man.

If man –under any circumstances whatsoever- is determined to put his trust in Allah; and do not forget that Allah creates everything on a destiny with goodness and wisdom and that man can only act as Allah preordained in destiny, satan will never be effective on him. Upon the evil impulse of the satan, if a man seeks refuge in Allah and thinks with the verses of the Qur'an –by the leave of Allah- that evil impulse will be removed and satan will never be effective on that person.

If man does not forget that satan has no power –that he only performs according to the command of Allah- and that he is a very helpless creature and does not see the satan as an independent power and take up a position in the side of Allah , satan will lose all power against that person.

If man evaluates the tricky schemes of the satan, the truths he turns about, the lies he tells, the tricks he plays, the evil impulses he gives with the verses of the Qur'an, he will instantly see that all those are very corrupt and weak traps and the satan again will not be able to influence him in any way.

When man acts with a faithful consciousness against the satan, by the leave of Allah, the efforts of satan will remain inconclusive until the end of his life.

The point of view of man against the satan should never involve any logic other than these facts. A Muslim should never see satan as powerful and should never assume that it is difficult to neutralize it. A Muslim should never forget that "Allah created satan only as a deviator for the unbelievers;  that he has no authority over the devout Muslims who love Allah and who live by the morality Allah likes".

A Single Example is Enough to See How Darwinism is an Utter Nonsense

Each Protein Molecule in our bodies acts with discipline to carry out Allah's commands. Allah, the Lord of the worlds, is the One Who creates each molecule to do "absolute must" type operations.

Albumin, which is one of the "carrier" proteins in the blood, binds itself to fats like cholesterol, hormones, toxic gallbladder materials and drugs such as penicillin. Albumin travels with the blood in the body and leaves the poisons which it collects in the liver for neutralization, and carries the nutrients and hormones wherever they are needed throughout the body.

* How does a molecule like albumin, which is made up from atoms and do not have consciousness or knowledge, distinguish between fats, poisons, drugs and nutrients?

* How does the albumin recognize between the liver, gall bladder and stomach and take the substances which it carries to the right place, in the right amount and invariably without error?

* How does it recognize the differences between toxic substances, drugs and nutrients carried in the blood and understand exactly how much should be left in which organ?

The albumin molecule, which is a combination of a few unconscious atoms, knows information that the vast majority of people do not know without proper education, and has performed its duty in every person who has ever lived thus far for millions of years. The capability of showing a consciousness like this doubtlessly takes place through Allah's infinite power and knowledge.

Enemies of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be scholars of religious law

Page 27 of the Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar:

“Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will preserve Islam at the end in the same way that the Prophet (pbuh) preserved it at the beginning. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will leave no subsequent additions,” says our Prophet (pbuh). Our Prophet (pbuh) says that, as in his own day, the Mahdi (pbuh) will perform all the requirements of the faith but do away with all nonsense added on afterward.

“The enemies of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be those who imitate scholars of religious law,” some people from among the fanatics. “Because when they see that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) governs in the opposite manner to the imams of the sects, this will displease them, they will accuse him of not being one of the People of the Sunnah, and will refer to people of perversion and subsequent additions to the faith. But they will be unable to overcome him. The declared foes of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be scholars of religious law. Because they will have no more prestige among the public. Their knowledge will even decline. Ibn Arabi says this in Al-FutuḼat al-Makkiyya. In other words, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be branded as perverse and outside the people of the Sunnah. We can see this in the hadiths of our Prophet (pbuh), as well as in statements by Ibn Arabi. The Prophet (pbuh) says they will say. “He has ruined our religion.” The Mahdi (pbuh) will wish people to live by the Qur’an, but since they are used to living by nonsense, they will say, “He has ruined our religion.”
