Devil Fear

A man woke up early in order to have
his morning devotion (NAMAAZ). He
got dressed, set on his way to the
Allah house.
On his way to the MASJID, the man fell
and his clothes got dirty.. He got up,
brushed himself up, and headed home.
At home, he changed his clothes, and
was again, on his way to the MASJID.
On his way to the MASJID, he fell again
and at the same spot! He, again, got up,
brushed himself off and headed home.
At home he, once again, changed his
clothes and was on his way to the
Allah house.
On his way to the MASJID, he met a
man holding a lamp. He asked the man
of his identity and the man replied ‘I
saw you fall twice on your way to the
MASJID, so I brought a lamp so I can
light your way. The first man thanked
him profusely and the two went on
their way to the MASJID.
Once at the MASJID, the first man
asked the man with the lamp to come
in and offer SALAAH with him. The
second man refused. The first man
asked him a couple more times and,
again, the answer was the same.
The first man asked him why he did
not wish to come in and pray. The man
replied, ‘I am Satan’. The man was
shocked at this reply. Satan went on to
explain, ‘I saw you on your way to the
MASJID and it was I who made you fall.
When you went home, cleaned
yourself and went back on your way to
the MASJID, Allah ( s.w.t) forgave all of
your sins. I made you fall a second
time, and even that did not encourage
you to stay home, but rather, you went
back on your way to MASJID. Because
of that, Allah (s.w.t) forgave all the
sins of the people of your household. I
was afraid if I made you fall one more
time, then Allah (s.w.t )will forgive the
sins of the whole nation (world)so I
made sure that you reached the
MASJID safely.
Do not put off the good you intended
to do as you never know how much
reward you might receive from the
hardships you encounter while trying
to achieve that good. For your
righteousness can save your family
and nation at large. Do this and see
the victory of the Allah
