The Lure of Shaytan & the Promise of Allah
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 3rd February 2017 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
Shaytan has made a promise to Allah that he will do whatever he can to misguide mankind. He has promised to try and lure mankind away from Allah with material possessions and fame, while threatening them with poverty. Verses of the Quran show Shaytan’s promise not just to Allah but to mankind as well.
Allah promises forgiveness and bliss in the akhirah. This has been related with various verses of the Quran to give hope to mankind that ease will come after the difficulties faced in this dunya. Allah mentions a conversation between the people of Jannah and the people of Jahannam and how Shaytan will renege on his promise on the Day of Judgement.
Verses relating to charity precede those in which Shaytan threatens a person with poverty. Spending in the way of Allah and the quality of what to give are discussed towards the end of the talk.
