Islamic Belief : Shaitaan is our sworn enemy, and had promised to mislead us

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

Shaitaan is our sworn enemy, and had promised to mislead us, but the true and sincere believers are those who seek refuge in Allah from shaitaan the cursed. Even shaitaan recognises them as being different from the rest of the people and even he knows that he cannot harm them in any way, even when he tries. We should also be wary of the shaitaans amongst mankind, who also try to mislead those who go towards the Beloved and Chosen Servants of Allah.

Hazrat Sayyiduna Husain bin Muhammad Sar'raaj Alaihir Rahma states, I once heard Hazrat Sayyiduna Junaid e Baghdadi Radi Allahu anhu saying,

Once, I dreamt shaitaan the cursed, and he was completely naked, so I said to that shameless one, Do you have no shame before the people. He said, these people who are near you, are not really humans. If they were truly humans (insaan), then I would not have played with them, like children play with a ball. This is not how humans are meant to be. So I (Junaid e Baghdadi) asked, So who then do you regard as humans (Insaan)? Shaitaan said, Those who are in the Masjid e Shuneezi. They have plunged my heart into grief, and have severely weakened my body. Whenever I intend to mislead them, they seek Allah's Divine Help, and I start to burn (combust).

Hazrat Junaid e Baghdadi Radi Allahu anhu says, When I woke from this dream, a greater portion of night still remained. I immediately changed my clothing and went to the Masjid e Shuneezi. There, I found three people wearing sheets over their heads, sitting in the courtyard of the Masjid. When they sensed that I had entered the Masjid, one of them removed the sheet from over his head and said, O Abul Qaasim! Are you the same person who always accepts the (righteous) word which is said to him?

Hazrat Ibn Jahdam states, Hazrat Abu Abdullah alaihir Rahma mentioned to me that the three people in Masjid e Shuneezi were, Hazrat Abu Hamzah, Hazrat Abul Husain Thawri and Hazrat Abu Bakr Daq'qaaq alaihimur rahma.

Always seek refuge in Allah from shaitaan the cursed. We beg to Almighty Allah through the wasila of Nabi Kareem Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam, and through the blessings of those beloveds who are in the Protection of Allah, that Almighty Allah should save us from the deceit and the evil of shaitaan the cursed. Aameen
