Sword of Eeman

It’s in the moment of silences that a storm enrages.

Ferocious. Gnawing away on the product of years’ hardwork of hope. Hungrily feeding on it. Like a lion after its’ prey.

The soul feels robbed, ripped-off, betrayed.

The heart stops beating its’ peaceful rhythm.

Mind’s rollercoaster spirals down without any control from the World of Bright Blue Skies to Pits of Darkness.

It’s in those moment of silences that the Shaytan slowly yet very tactfully lulls you to ‘Songs of Despair’.

It’s over. There’s no point in moving on. Allah doesn’t want you to. Who will support you anyway?

“…Whoever renounces Tâghût (forces of Shaytan) and believes in Allâh, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (256) Allâh is the Walî (Protector or Guardian) of those who believe. He brings them out from the depth of darkness  and leads them into light.” [Surah Al Baqarah, v. 256-257]

You pick up your Sword of Eeman and slash the shadows of despair with the Noor of the Quraa’n. Those are Allah’s Words. They are the truth you can hold onto even if the whole world lies. Only His Words will protect you, by His Permission.

“O you who believe! Endure and excel in patience during confrontation, and guard your territory by stationing army units permanently at the places from where the enemy can attack you and hold yourselves ready for battle, and fear Allâh, so that you may be successful.” [Surah Ale-Imran, v.200]

Always be on guard! Don’t let the enemy find a loop hole and get you! Shaytan’s eternal abode’s going to be Fire. Don’t let him take away your Paradise because he hates you and he’s been scheming since the day the first man was born. He’s after you, your family, even your babies! PROTECT THEM!

[Iblîs (Satan)] said: “By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all, (82) “Except Your chosen slaves amongst them (Mukhliseen:faithful, obedient, true believers of Islâmic Monotheism).” (83) [Surah Sa’d]

…but only those who are sincere, them-he won’t be able to falter. There’s one major weapon against Shaytan: sincerity towards all aspects of Deen.

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allâh, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tâghût (forces of Satan,). So fight you against the friends of Shaitân ; Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitân (Satan). [Surah An-Nisaa’,v.76]

Get up and get back to your road to Jannah! You have a mission to complete. And along the long difficult road, always remember:

“Nothing is difficult if you seek it through your Lord, Nothing is easy if you seek it through yourself.” [Ibn Ata’allah]

And Allah SWT knows best.

I seek refuge in Allah SWT from the Shayateen and ask Him through His Most Perfect Names to aid me through this battle against my Nafs and Shaytan. O Allah! It’s going to be a tough road but I am ready to be wounded in it if and only if I get Your Pleasure at the finishing line. Please facilitate this journey for me because I own a feeble heart and a low Eeman. Let me not be of those who are astray.  Please sow the seeds of sincerity in the currently infertile (soon to be fertile by Your Mercy) soil of my heart. Bless me with the merciful rain of Guidance and let the trees of Eeman bear fruit  long before I die so that I can benefit those in need.ameen.
