Everyday she wakes up, prays fajr and makes dua for her children
Everyday, she strives to teach them the right way to bring them a little more closer to Allah(swt)
Everyday, she ends the day with thoughts of her children on her mind. Did she do right by them? Did she say the right thing? Do the right thing?
Everyday, she fears saying or doing anything that will distance them from her or Allah(swt)
Everyday, her children’s greatest enemy lays out a plot for them
Every day, he is is plotting to use their desires and their fears against them.
Every day, he accompanies them even when she is not there with them, whispering evil thoughts in their minds and hearts
Children…often unaware….that this is a plot..this is a deception…are trapped!
He plays games with their minds…
Sometimes using despair…sometimes using hope
Sometimes using truth …. and sometimes using lies
Sometimes making good look bad and sometimes bad look good
Slowly and steadily..he keeps on working his long plans
Even though she loves her children so much, the devil’s attacks on her mind sometimes can lead her to give up, and she gives in…even though she knows it will hurt her children
But the enemy, he never gives up.
Even if he sees the children doing salah, reading Quran, being righteous. He doesn’t give up!
He promised Allah that he will attack them on the straight path and thats what he does
He attacks them even more…
His plans are even more devious and deceptive now
He is relentless, and he has years of experience and knowledge
How can we leave your children ignorant of the ways of their worst enemy?
The enemy who attacks them day and night
Children need to be taught the tricks and traps shaitan lays down for them
The psychological games he plays with them to sink them into hellfire and filth in this life
Allah warned us about him and ordered us to take him as an enemy
إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ فَاتَّخِذُوهُ عَدُوًّا إِنَّمَا يَدْعُو حِزْبَهُ لِيَكُونُوا مِنْ أَصْحَابِ السَّعِيرِ
“Indeed, Satan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the fire.” (35:6)
We must teach our children to take him as an enemy and help empower them with knowledge of his tricks and traps so they can bring him down before he brings them down.
May Allah(swt) help us in giving our children the knowledge and tools to themselves from the attacks of shaitan. Ameen
If you missed any of the videos I sent you for your children over the past few days, to help you arm them against the tricks of shaitan, you can catch up here.
Share with others and help their children benefit too, remember. Allah helps those who are helping others.
InshaAllah this week I will tell you how we can take this education further.
Let’s be each other’s allies against the fight against our worst enemy!
