Shaytaan his tactic: “Wasawis, I get Bad thoughts all the time”



By: Tabrez Ahmed

In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The most Merciful

You are not the only one who is victimized by the whispers of shaitan. Even in the time of Prophet (Peace be upon him)such incidents have been witnessed.

Sunan Abi Dawood (Kitab Al-Adab) :: Hadith 5112

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:
A man came to the Prophet (Peace be upon him) and said: Messenger of Allah! one of us has thoughts of such nature that he would rather be reduced to charcoal than speak about them. He said: Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great. Praise be to Allah Who has reduced the guile of the devil to evil prompting. Ibn Qudamah said “reduced his matter” instead of “reduced his guile”.
Ibn Qudamah said “reduced his matter” instead of “reduced his guile”.

But our beloved Prophet (Peace be upon him) has assured us that unless such kind of evil whispers are ignored and the evil thoughts are not acted upon, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala forgives us.

Sahih al-Bukhari :: Hadith 6664

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “Allah forgives my followers those (evil deeds) their souls may whisper or suggest to them as long as they do not act (on it) or speak.”

Sahih al-Bukhari :: Hadith 5269

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “Allah has forgiven my followers the evil thoughts that occur to their minds, as long as such thoughts are not put into action or uttered.” And Qatada said, “If someone divorces his wife just in his mind, such an unuttered divorce has no effect.

So, you should constantly seek refuge in Allah from these Wasawis (whispers) just like our Prophet (Peace be upon him)did.

Sunan Abi Dawood (Kitab as-Salaah) :: Hadith 1539

Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab:
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) used to seek refuge in Allah from five things; cowardliness, niggardliness, the evils of old age, evil thoughts, and punishment in the grave.

It is clear from your question that Shaitaan has victimized you to an extent where you curse yourself and now you are asking hell (na’uzubillah) for yourself. By doing this you are are being unfaithful to yourself and you are just making the shaitaan’s work of sending you to hell more easy.

In conclusion,

  • Never Again ask for death due to such failures

    Sahih al-Bukhari :: Hadith 6351

    Narrated Anas:
    Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) said,” None of you should long for death because of a calamity that had befallen him, and if he cannot, but long for death, then he should say, ‘O Allah! Let me live as long as life is better for me, and take my life if death is better for me.’ “

  • Be faithful to yourself: Never again ask hell for yourself. Instead seek refuge in Allah from Shaitaan and the Hell.
  • Be faithful to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala: Believe that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is aware that human mind is seldom under self control and is subject to these thoughts. Hence believe that Allah will forgive you.
  • Ignore the whispers: Ignore them and seek refuge from them.
  • Carry on with your Ibadah: Rather, offer more prayers than before and Inshaa Allah your head will be cleared from these thoughts.
