The Devil’s Final Ultimatum
Nouman Ali Khan delves into the final dialogue of Iblees. Shaytan is the ultimate enemy we have and is a relentless and pertinent one we have till the end of time. How is the devil going to come at us and pull us under his wing? Some of the origins of the word Shukr are illustrated and how some of us have Shukr cultivated within us and is displayed. Shaytan is angry at being admonished for being arrogant to Allah and swears that he will make mankind even more arrogant than him and even ungrateful. so, arrogance is a lack of manifestation of gratitude. Shaytan comes from four directions at us and he wants to prove our ingratitude from our hearts and diminish our optimistic relation with Allah. We should fight the temptations and let not greed get the better of us because we should firmly believe that Allah will never abandon us in moments of crises.
How The Devil Attacks From The Left
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan elaborates on how Satan attacks us from the left side. The basic idea that is postulated by the scholars is that right is associated with the good and left is for that which is bad which means it makes us lazy, delaying doing good things, etc. What keeps us connected to Allah is the acts of worship, remembrance of Allah, our desire to seek forgiveness from Allah for our sins. Shaytan attacks from the left by: * Removing your motivation to engage in beneficial acts by slowing your ability to do good things. This way he has room to fill up your heart with bad things. * Eliminating the remembrance of Allah from your life so that you are not alarmed in Haram situations and to then fill your heart with despair. * By beautifying sins for you and pulling you towards his direction (the left). Ultimately deviating you from the path of Allah. * To convince us that you have no respect, that you are filthy and invaluable in the eyes of Allah. * Greed and Wanting more than...
How The Devil Attacks From The Right
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan elaborates explicitly on how the Devil attacks us from the right direction. The Shaytan attacks from the right by: * Convincing you that you own your guidance. So you start to pity others, deviating away from your own guidance and focusing on theirs. Ultimately believing you are the source of guidance and take part in others’ personal journey to Allah. * Using the word of Allah for evil purposes (Having a personal agenda above the word of Allah) * Resetting the priorities of Islam * Defining your own idea of a ‘good character’ * Misjudging people based on their presentation. Focusing on the difference in insignificant worshipping styles
How The Devil Pulls Us back
How the devil pulls us back In his previous talk the venerated Sheikh talked about how the syaitan attacks us from the front. In this talk he tells us how the syaitan attacks us from the back. One of the easiest ways syaitan achieves this is by his whispers. We may think that it's our thoughts emanating from us but the reality is it's coming from the accursed one, the one that promised Al Khaliq he would lead the children of Adam astray from every angle. One of the things that syaitan wants us to be is in the same of constant doubt, always asking ourselves 'why did this happen to me?’. He plays a psychological game with humans. If we are obsessed with the our past acts, we cannot go forward to better ourselves. Syaitan wants you to remain in that state of hopelessness that syaitan himself is in. These difficult times you went through are not proof that Allah hates you, doesn't care about you, does not love you. This is not the case because some of the best persons that ever lived w...
When The Devil Attacks Head On
Khutbah by Nouman Ali Khan Our beloved Sheikh in this khutbah talks about one of the attacks of Iblis stated in Surah 7. Iblis here swore he will absolutely come at us from in front of us and behind us. Which basically means he's attacking head on- literally in front of us, the literal meaning being iblis will use things directly in front of us against us. Eg: whatever you want to look at is physically in front of the screens of iPhone, laptop screen etc. Iblis doesn't want us to think of the consequences of our action. He whispers to us that consequences don't matter. The second prong of this frontal attack is when iblis directs our focus by whispering about the physical elements of life - obsessing us with things that we can see - that branded outfit or the house in that particular neighborhood. In Surah An-Nas - the Quran says “iblis whispers into the chest” which carries the meaning that Iblis uses the emotions in our chest and manipulates them to work against our aqidah, our ...
The Devil's Motive
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan makes us get goosebumps just by listening to his lecture on the Devil's Motive. In this talk, we comprehend how Shaytaan is sitting to attack us! How ungrateful he is and wants us to be the same. We need to realize that we must always be grateful for the organs, food, shelter, parents, and Alhamdulillah for making us Muslims, and His guidance that Allah has provided us with. Alhamdulillah, there are so many things to be grateful for. Insha Allah, with the constant remembrance of Allah we will be able to defeat the devil. May Allah protect us from his whispers and make us among those for whom Allah has chosen this path to be easy. Aameen.
The Devils Obsession with Comparison
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delivers an amazing lecture that deals with the Devil’s obsession with comparison. Lessons from this lecture: * Iblees said that he is better than Adam (AS) since he is made from fire and Adam (AS) from clay, which led to Shirk. As it is Allah who decides who is better than anyone among us and we don't have any basis of comparison. * Don't compare yourself with anyone in this dunya as this is not your job to do, your sustenance is in Allah's hands and you won't get anything more or less as what is decided. * Comparing in materialistic items as those of clothes, income, cars, home, etc will lead to arrogance which will lead to jealousy and thus this is what Iblees wants from all of us to fight and holds grudges among ourselves. * You are not superior when compared with anyone else. * If Allah gave you knowledge, fame, money, power, etc, don't consider it as a sign that Allah loves you more than anyone else. * If you have thoughts like "Why someone else is happ...
