This lecture describes the steps Shaitan (Satan – Devil) takes to lead people astray starting with Shirk then bida’h then major / minor sins, also unveils the plots of Satan as they are described to us through the Quran and the Sunnah. The struggle against Iblees (Shaitan – Satan – Devil) and his party- may Allaahs curse upon him- is a great battle which this enemy of Allaah persisted in undertaking since the pursuit against Aadam s-saliam and his offspring. He is at work all the time, at every moment, at every available opportunity, manipulating any circumstances and continuing his chase from every conceivable angle. The Lord of the Worlds, Blessed and exalted has informed us about this.
“O you who believe! Enter perfectly in Islam (by obeying all the rules and regulations of the Islamic religion) and follow not the footsteps of Shaitan (Satan – Devil). Verily! He is to you a plain enemy”. (The Noble Quran 2:208)
