  • The two pharaohs

    In our journey from mother's laps to grave, there are two companions that would always be with us and are part of our TEST till our last breath.

    One is inside of us called "Nafs". He would always portray to us the acts of disobedience of Allah (swt) to be full of immense pleasures. He creates excitement for lustful acts and tries to hide the satisfaction of Quran recitation, zikr, praying...etc. through an illusion of boredom & repulsion. He would make the satanic songs sweet but qirah of Quran bitter to our ears. He would make us attentive in talks with na-mehram but yawn in our talk with Allah (swt) through Salaah. This pharaoh is defeated by the company of pious people & by keeping a bit of hunger alive because with a full stomach one easily becomes victim to this giant.

    The outer companion in our journey is the devil (shaitaan), he would try to convince us that there is no such thing as life hereafter. If we still believe in it, he would show us the luxuries of this world to be more beautiful than Jannah and the difficulties in obeying Allah (swt) to be more painful than hell. If we still ignore him, he would try to move our eyes towards lust, our tongue towards lies, backbiting…etc. our mind towards forbidden thoughts & our hands + feet towards forbidden acts. If by the grace of Allah (swt) we are still able to resist those sins, then he would make us proud of our piousness, showing us our good deeds only but highlighting bad deeds of people & showing them inferior to us (most dangerous attack) so that all our good deeds are wasted through this sense of superiority. In order to resist this giant, one needs to strengthen ones soul through zikr and other ibaadahs (good deeds).

    The more we feed these two GIANTS by obeying them the higher becomes their strength and control over us & vice versa. For protection against them, there is an angel with us that puts good ideas & thoughts in our heart, because heart is the alarm that differenciates between good & bad.
