CHAPTER 21 HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ISLAM
Becoming a #Muslim means that you have achieved a lot of good for yourself.
It is like owning a valuable treasure.
The owner of a treasure will have many enemies who strive to take his treasure away from him.
And you have gained the treasure of #Islam.
Some people will try to drive you away from your #Deen (Religion).
Those people are the foes of #Allah.
The foes of Allah are devils whether from among Jinn (whom we do not see) or from among human beings.
Human devils may try to mock at you.
They may accuse Islam of many things, or cloud your mind with some misconceptions.
You have to know that Allah has said in the #Qur’an “And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation” (The Qur’an 25:33).
So, consult #Muslim scholars about what Allah has revealed in the Qur’an to answer such misconceptions.
As for Jinn devils they whisper into your heart. “Would you desert your fathers’ and forefathers’ religion, and follow a different one?”
Would you follow a religion that tasks you with #prayers, fasting and giving others your property? And that deprives you from wine… etc.”
In fact, many people grow up, and find themselves traditionally following and honoring their parents’ religions and beliefs.
All followers of true, or false religions are like that, but the problem is: which of these religions is the true one and which is the false?
Surely, Islam is the only Deen (Religion) which is pure and free from all types of superstitions, polytheism and paganism.
It is the Deen of pure #Monotheism.
When you feel these whispers of Jinn devils, recite:
Rabbi ’a‘uthu bika min hamazatish-Shayateen, Wa ‘a’udhu bika rabbi ‘an yahduroon (The Qur’an 23:97-98) “O my Lord ! I seek refuge with you from the suggestions of the Evil Ones. And I seek refuge with You, O my Lord!, lest they should come near me”.
And recite also the chapters Al-Falaq and An-Nas of the Quran. These are included in Appendix (I) with transliteration.
