I do not need any introduction. I have been introduced to you many times by your Lord. But, you do not take heed because you are selfish and worthless, as I always knew. You and your father were made of clay, but I, I was made of fire! Yet, I was asked to prostrate before you. [1]

Why would I? I refused quite blatantly. Clearly, I am far too superior to Adam. My refusal earned me a promise from your Lord – promise of Hell fire, for eternity…..

All this, because of you. I hate and envy you, just as I envied your father. I will never rest till I destroy you. I want you to share the pain with me. I want you to be part of the curse that has befallen me. I want to see you burn and scream in pain, just as I would!

The manner of my deceptions is no secret. Your lord has revealed it and His Messenger has elaborated it for you. In spite of their warnings, I never fail! Because you are weak and ungrateful!

I will strike at your heart and your weaknesses. I will cause corruption in this world with my strategies, misconceptions and tricks, which you will never realize until you die.

But let me clarify one aspect about myself. I have no power to force you to sin. I enjoy no power over your free will. I only entice you to evil, but it is you who choose to follow me and destroy yourself.

I start with calling you to associating partners with your Lord. I beautify to you the thought that you are sinners and hence are in no position to seek help and favors directly from your Lord. I make you believe that pious intermediates are necessary so that I can break the direct connection between you and your Master and leave you in the lurch forever. satan

If this fails, I drag you to ‘my all time favorite’ deception: major sins. Its possibilities are infinite. I will entice you to leave your Salaah, pre occupying you with petty matters. I will make you love music and hate the Qur’an. I will call you towards zina, towards the intoxication of alcohol and desires. I will perpetrate the pleasure of this evil in your mind. I will fill you with lustful desires so much so that you forget that your Lord has forbidden it for you. You will forget the promise of Jannah and succumb to my lowly invitations even though it is in your hands to back out.

Don’t you know how I destroyed Barsisa?[2] He was the most pious of Bani Israel, but he was weak, he gave in. How it pleased me to see him die on my path! How it pleased me to destroy him!

If you do not entangle into my web of major sins, I call you to minor sins. Now, if you are pious and are able to stay away from this too, I begin to pre occupy your time with permissible activities. I will make you busy in earning your livelihood to such an extent that you are too tired and exhausted for ‘ibadah. I will slowly cause you to introduce petty matters in your life which are not sins, but will consume your entire time.

I will make this world and its desires magical to you. I will tempt you with wealth, power, fame and women. I will blur your reasoning and work on your weaknesses. I will rope you into one passion after the other.

I will make this world and its desires magical to you. I will tempt you with wealth, power, fame and women. I will blur your reasoning and work on your weaknesses. I will rope you into one passion after the other.

If you still do not get swayed by my deceptions, I will apply my next trick on you. I will fill you with grief and sadness. I will make poverty demeaning in your eyes so that you cheat and lie to improve your situation. I will make you envy the bounties that others have been blessed with, filling you with remorse and anger. I will destroy you from within

I flow in your blood.[3] I will enter your soul though desires, passions and weaknesses and make you hollow from within. I will feed your mind with evil and daunting thoughts. I will break your determination and power to resist. I will bring you down, I promise you that!

Do not think you can overpower me in your path of righteousness to Allah Allah Subhanahu-wa-Taala. I will show you that which no one has even seen from me. I will make you forget every promise that your Lord has made to you. I will drown you in the depths of sins, will enslave you to me, and when you realize this, it would be too late- you will be DEAD!

I hate you and wish only harm for you. I am obsessed with destroying you. I will remain with you like your shadow when you are alive, but when you die having followed my orders, I will leave you alone to deal with the torture and punishment that your Lord will subject you to. You were weak! You forgot the love, mercy and care that your Lord has for you. You forgot His promise of Jannah!

Remember, I will not rest till I drag you with me to Hell, till I see you rage with thirst and see your skin peeling out due to the fire. I will not rest till I see you scream and burn in the scorching flame.


“O you who have believed, do not follow the footsteps of Satan. And whoever follows the footsteps of Satan – indeed, he enjoins immorality and wrongdoing…..” [4]

[3] Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was in the company of one of his wives when a man passed by them. The Prophet called to him and when he came, the Prophet said, “She is my wife.” The man said, “O Messenger of Allah, I do not doubt you in the least.” The Prophet said, “Verily, Satan flows through the human being like blood.”
