This article is inspired from a verse in Holy Quran where Satan makes four promises to Allah.
PROMISE 1: I will lead them astray. (Al Quran: 4:119)
Look at majority of humanity today instead of becoming the servant of Rahmaan they are servants of shaytaan. We are sick today. The minds of youth are confused. Our hearts are sick. What shall we hold on to? Society has many impulses it will tell you and pull you in many directions the more you go the more confused you will be. And we have only guidance for us. Allah SWT states in the Quran in the beginning of surah e Kahf. He says
“ALL PRAISES TO BE ALLAH SWT WHO HAS REVEALED ON THE PROPHET SAWW, HIS SERVANT A BOOK AND HE HAS LEFT NO CROOKNESS IN IT”
PROMISE 2: I will give them false passions and desires. (Al Quran: 4:119)
False passions and desires can broadly define into two, your carnal desires, your desires for the flesh and look at today’s society, a sex driven society, it is a sex mad society. That a society promotes sex as long as you have safe sex, because according to them it is a physical thing you carry on while according to Islam it is a spiritual thing. When a husband comes to his wife, he recites dua’as and Allah SWT safeguards that child and the ulamaah write that is the first right of the child, because it is a spiritual thing. And this is why out of seven people who will be under the shade of Allah SWT on the Day of Judgment will be that young man who grew up in the worship of Allah SWT, he will be under the shade of Allah SWT. The second that shaytaan will delude you in believing into false aspirations of this duniya. And he will make this duniya the purpose of your life. He will not give you time to even think about the purpose of your life. And see how the promise of shaytaan is coming to pass. You know they give you your Television sets, videos, DVD’s, satellite channel, so you have all the channels than you can even count, your voice activated mobile phones, camera phones and video phones, internet, and then they give you the internet on your mobile phones so it is like the posters say “you can shop until you drop dead” and when you drop dead the same shaytaan will say “DON’T BLAME ME, BLAME YOURSELF. I CALLED YOU AND YOU OBLIGED” and you will be suckered like the billions were suckered before you.
PROMISE 3: I will command them and they will slit the ear of cattle. (Al Quran: 4:119)
What the mushrikeen would do is that they would slit the ear and they would slit the animal and they will let them in the name of false gods and it is halal for males and haram for woman. The author of Tafseer –Al-Mazhari mentions that this means, that a time will come where shaytaan will command man to disfigure the creation of Allah SWT. And look in to our society, a consumer society. They tried to create a chicken without feathers. Where recently in Switzerland they found a fruit fly and from that fruit fly they found a gene which they dubbed eyeless and when they noted where ever they injected this gene, an eye would grow and they injected on fourteen places of this dragon on this fruit fly, and on fourteen places on the anatomy of that fruit fly eyes grew, see this is man playing with the creation of Allah SWT, but it doesn’t stop there,
PROMISE 4: I will command them and they will change the creation of Allah SWT. (Al Quran: 4:119)
Look at those who reach to the pinnacle of success, those like Michael Jackson. You know the guy with the good looking person a few years ago, but he reaches the pinnacle of success and then is deluded by the duniya, then what does he do, he starts playing around with his features, he start disfiguring his features, even the guy doesn’t look like a human being because this is what shaytaan said “I WILL COMMAND THEM AND THEY WILL CHANGE THE CREATION OF ALLAH SWT”
The traditional interpretations for this verse are to shave the beard, which would change the creation of Allah SWT because this was a sign of a man. To pluck the eyebrows, was a sign of changing the creation of Allah SWT. But because the book of Allah SWT transcends time and space, it is relevant for all the times for it is guidance until the final day. And what could be a greater change in the creation of Allah SWT that a man transforms into a woman and a woman transforms into a man and this was the fourth promise of shaytaan.
PIE OF DISCUSSION:
Prophet Mohammad SAWW said “HOLD ON TO THE BOOK OF ALLAH” and the book of Allah SWT is a verdict between you. For the Muslim nothing besides islam will work. Because this is umaah regarding Allah SWT articulates in the Quran that, “YOU ARE BEST OF CREATION, YOU ARE TAKEN OUT OF MANKIND!” Now if you think that your honor lies in some other philosophies or ideologies, you are deluded. The only time Muslims had respect were when they held onto the Deen of Allah SWT. Look at the history, and when they turned away from Allah SWT. Allah turned away from them. And this is why we find ourselves in the decadence. Look at the state of the Muslims and then till we realize that the problem that we have today is because we have turned away from Allah SWT, we should go back to Quran and Sunnaah. May Allah SWT make us from amongst those who follow the Sunnaahs of Prophet SAWW. May Allah unite us in this duniya and may Allah SWT re-unite us in Jannat-ul-Firdouse. (Ameen)
