the creative shaitan

In the name of Allah, the most merciful.

Praise to Allah for His rahmat for we are still able to breath and live with Islam as our faith. 

Let this be a reminder for me to become wiser in the future and others too, insyAllah.

Situation 1
We get this distant feeling that the people around us is somewhat plotting against us, when the real fact is nothing happened. We became prejudice when people stop talking the minute we walked into the room.

Situation 2
The animosity we have upon others. The hatred that comes out of nowhere towards the people around us, without them doing anything hurtful to us.

Situation 3
The feeling of superiority. That we are better than the rest of the class. That only our ideas matter and others’ are rubbish. That we are the prettiest and will always be the prettiest. Being soo self-absorbed with ourselves and inconsiderate.

These three situations are only some of the thoughts,imagination, and misapprehensions that one might have upon others. Maybe not you. Maybe it’s just me. Ones I’ve had in my 21 years of living.

Believe it or not, we, very oftenly let ourselves dwell into our own thoughts without neither giving much thought about it nor thinking rationally. We let the ‘creativity’ of our minds run free without boundaries, causing bitter effects to our Iman, our hearts.

The other day, I was with a few friends talking about stuff that is more or less related to this topic. In relation to the cause of the mind having such distasteful subject as a focus, I remember a friend saying how creative shaitan is in his motive to bring man down with him into the jahannam.

Let’s take sometime, making sense of that last sentence.

Another example. People say that women likes being adored and looking pretty. Typical women. Not saying that I’m not one of them, I am. But, let’s now have a muhasabah session.

Why do we like to be pretty?
Is is because we want other people to look at us, to compliment us for looking pretty today?
Is it because we want man to stop and stare? (macam lagu je :P)

No doubt that we can never kill the fitrah of women, wanting to be pretty and all. But one should always bear in mind, that while we are looking pretty, we should always let Allah be our prior focus. That our niat is Lillahi ta’ala.

Because as soon as we put Him as our No. 1, inshAllah, we would always be reminded about the real teachings of Islam. The concept of moderation that is higly valued in the teachings of Islam.

Those who, when they spend, are not extravagant and not niggardly, but hold a just (balance) between those (extremes); (25:67)

And be moderate in your pace, and lower your voice; for the harshest of sounds without doubt is the braying of the ass.  (31:19)

InshAllah, we will dress over the top.
InshAllah, we will spare some thoughts for our innocent friends.
InsyAllah, Allah will keep us far from ria’ and ta’bur.
InshAllah, we will not be deceived by shaitan who always want us to be confused and lost.

We clearly know that shaitan is our enemy. Would we still give in to his temptation?
