Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
One of the many differences between the average Muslim and me is that I take responsibility for my actions and avoid giving shaytaan undue credit.
Shaytaan has never been in charge of my life. Yes, I am a sinner. I made the wrong decisions. And with Allah’s Help and Forgiveness I strive to make the right decisions.
When I became a Muslim, I wrote Allah into my life. Note this does not include the devil. The devil is my enemy and I give him a welcome befitting an enemy.
At the commencement of Ramadhan, I wrote that the shayateen (devils) among humans are on the loose. That is a reality. Some individuals hide behind Ramadhan to annoy others and expect a different reception than usual.
Here is some bad news: whoever plays the role of the devil will be treated as the devil.
