“I am better than him.”
[Sūrat’l-A‘rāf: 12]

And so it began. Shayṭān’s (Iblīs, the Devil) animosity for mankind erupted from merely a few words…and it didn’t end there. In fact, it sparked a perpetual conflict between truth and falsehood that will last until the Day of Judgment.

“[Iblīs] said, ‘Do You see this one whom You have honored above me? If You reprieve me until the Day of Resurrection, I will surely destroy his descendants, except for a few.’”
[Sūrat’l-Isrā’: 62]

Except for a few? It’s time to get serious.

He is skilled, determined, and relentless. He will never be satisfied until mankind is embroiled in a state of misguidance and vileness. His number one target: the believers!

“Then I will come at them, from in front of them and behind them,
from their right and from their left.”
[Sūrat’l-A‘rāf: 17]

But it’s not as bad you think. The way of Allāh is to not leave His servants in their heated conflict with Shayṭān without any aid or support from Him. From His Mercy is to provide for the believers those who would remind and educate them how to remain steadfast upon the truth in this lifelong struggle.
