50. Keep the Shaitan out

Posted on March 29th, 2013

Another entry by the writers at PureMatrimony.com. Look out for more entries provided by them in the future inshallah.

Before marriage, Shaitan, the devil, does his best to cause two people to commit sin and have a forbidden relationship.  And after marriage, the same two people that Shaitan tried so hard to tempt into sinning are now under attack from him again. He wants them split apart! Why? Because once a marriage takes place, the husband and wife are now halal for each other.

And because they are halal for each other, it means that Shaitan has failed in his objective to make people sin. In fact people are rewarded by Allah for getting married. 

This infuriates the Shaitan even further who will now focus his energy in destroying the home that they build so that eventually the husband and wife will split apart and any children will be negatively affected.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: "Iblis places his throne upon water; he then sends detachments (for creating dissension between people); the nearer to him in rank are those who are most notorious in creating dissension. One of them comes and says: “I did so and so.” And he says: “You have done nothing.” Then one amongst them comes and says: “I did not spare so and so until I sowed the seed of discord between a husband and a wife.” Shaytaan goes near him and says: “You have done well.” He then embraces him”  (Sahih Muslim and narrated by Jabir Ibn ‘Abdullah).

So what can you do to protect your home and prevent Shaitan from entering it? Here are some tips:

1. Shaytaan is made from fire, so one of the best ways to protect yourself from being affected by him is to make wudu, since the water will put the fire out! In real terms, if you and your spouse are arguing, go and make wudu and inshallah your anger will disappear. The Prophet (pbuh) said: "When one of you gets angry, let him make ablution with water as anger arises out of fire.” In another narration, he said: "Anger comes from the devil and the devil is made of fire."

2. Recite Surah Baqarah over three nights in your home, since Shaytaan will run from a home in which this Surah is recited. If you are busy, you can play a recitation of Surah Baqarah instead, just be sure to complete the surah by day three.

3. Get into the habit of keeping your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah by making dhikr often.  Shaitan will not whisper to you if you do this.

4. When you feel an argument coming on, recite Aoutho billahi min al-shaytani-r-ragim and Shaitan will go away.  If you fear anger from your spouse, recite Aytul Kursi as much as you can around them under your breath.

Thank you for this. I will try it. My spouse wants to leave and feels no point in our marriage though we have children. No matter what I say it's turned into an argument. Worse if I give in and fight
