Surah Bani Isra’il (17) 24/09/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 17 (Bani-Isra’il)

Satan’s methods to take us away from Allah

“Lead to destruction those whom you can among them, with your (seductive) voice; make assaults on them with your cavalry and your infantry; mutually share with them wealth and children; and make promises to them.” But Satan promises them nothing but deceit”

This verse tell us the various methods that evil ones uses to mislead mankind from the truth.  The voice signifies convincing us through information or speech, calling upon people and encouraging them to act against the code of conduct given to us by Allah (SWT).   The cavalry and infantry signify the brute force used by evil forces to create a God-less society.  As Muslims we must be wary of the appeal of Satan in every facet of our lives as ultimately Satan will distance himself from his adherents on the day of judgement.  We know that Satan tries to influence our thoughts (sudoor) and the best way to combat this is by studying, reflecting and implementing Allah’s Book.   See sura 10 verse 57
