Bismillah AlRahman AlRaheem
(In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful)

Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuh
(Peace and blessings of Allah be upon you)

All credit is due to Allah, we praise Him and we seek his help and ask His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of ourselves and from the evil results of our actions. I testify that Allah alone is worthy of worship and that Muhammad is His slave and final Messenger. May Allah's peace and blessings be upon the last and final messenger Muhammad, his family and his followers. Ameen!

The battle between good and evil is an eternal one. When Allah (swt) created Adam (as) from clay then He blew the soul into Adam. Allah (swt) says what can be translated as, “When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him.” (Ch. 15; verse 29). Allah (swt) asked his angels to prostate to Adam (as) and they did except for Iblis (Satan) out of pride and arrogance.

“But not Iblis: he was proud and he was one of the unbelievers.
He said: O Iblis! what prevented you that you should do obeisance to him whom I created with My two hands? Are you proud or are you of the exalted ones?
He said: I am better than he; Thou hast created me of fire, and him Thou didst create of dust. He said: Then get out of it, for surely you are driven away: And surely My curse is on you to the day of judgment.” (Ch. 38; verses 74-78)

Iblis’ attitude is that fire is stronger and higher in status than clay, so how is it possible that the stronger and higher prostrates to the weaker and the lower? Arrogance and pride were the first sins since the creation of Adam (as). They are the worst attributes and owing to these sins, Iblis was expelled from Paradise.

The verse following these verses, “He said: My Lord! then respite me to the day that they are raised. He said: Surely you are of the respited ones, Till the period of the time made known. He said: Then by Thy Might I will surely make them live an evil life, all, Except Thy servants from among them, the purified ones. He said: The truth then is and the truth do I speak: That I will most certainly fill hell with you and with those among them who follow you, all.” (Ch. 38; verses 79-85)

This shows that Iblis (Satan) will stay alive until the Day of Judgment. This means that his enmity and hatred is directed to every human being, not only Adam (as). Iblis certain that he is one of the doomed; he is determined to mislead whomever he could from the believers, so they will accompany him in Hell. Out of envy, hatred, pride and arrogance Iblis is keen to corrupt and mislead, so as to increase the number of his followers. From now Satan has vowed to be the sworn enemy of human beings.

Hence, the more you go along the right path, the more Satan lurks there waiting for you. Such is the battle between you and Satan, and when it gets fiercer with the depth and power of your belief, he will gather his soldiers against you.

Has Satan succeeded in fulfilling his threats?

Allah has warned His servants against him and has said: “Verily Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents, that they may become Companions of the Blazing Fire.” (Ch. 35; verse 6)

“And the Shaitan shall say after the affair is decided: Surely Allah promised you the promise of truth, and I gave you promises, then failed to keep them to you, and I had no authority over you, except that I called you and you obeyed me, therefore do not blame me but blame yourselves: I cannot be your aider (now) nor can you be my aiders; surely I disbelieved in your associating me with Allah before; surely it is the unjust that shall have the painful punishment.” (Ch. 14; verse 22)
