The Devil is so good at decieving, you’ve decieved yourself.

Standard

Have you ever met someone who is so righteous and pious in their talk, but when put to the test, their character miserably fails to uphold all the talk.  And then when you challenge them they got answers for EVERYTHING!

I’m motivated to write this blog after meeting time and time again the type of people who are clearly decieved as to who they truly are.  I mean a hyprocrite has been defined as one who lies a lot or can’t keep promises in Islam.  Something as simple as not being able to keep an appointment means you have to check yourself. 

If all of a sudden everyone around you keeps telling you the same thing, like the following:

‘You’ve let me down again’

‘When are you going to give me that money’

‘You are so selfish’

‘All you do is use people’

You got do one of two things, look at the people who are saying this, or check yourself.  People’s reactions around us usually reflect our own making of a situation.  Meaning if you’re surrounded by people who got love for you, you’re doing something right. However if you are surrounded by a bunch of people who fume at you’re mistakes or every move, then you gotta acknowledge who is the problem, THEM OR YOU?

Now as we know the devil is the deciever we must also realise that we ain’t going to be able to identify his whispers, but the big clue is this.  When we act, it is usually good or bad. 

For example I was in Asda at the self check out.  As I approached my terminal I noticed £30 had not been collected.  I put it in my pocket with an intention of handing it to the cashier or being patient enough to see if the owner came to claim it.  Sure enough they did, and the moment of handing the money to the lady was very rewarding. At the time I bearly had money to shop and although I knew what I was going to do the devil came along with the justifcations as to why I could take the money.

May Allah aid us to distinguish right from wrong and protect us from the fire. Ameen
