Among the ways the jinn enter the body is through whispering, in particular the devil’s ability to overpower humans by producing them in the subconscious.
For example, often fantasize, want or see something that does not bring any benefit at all.
Ibnul Qoyyimrahimahullah in his book Fawaa’idul Fawaa’id explains, “Ideas, heart whispers, desires and compatibility are points that you must focus on for you to improve, because they are your own meaning and significance. This essence is a means to bring yourself better to Allah or to you from Him.”
“O you who think, if you fear Allah, we will give you Furqon (knowledge that can compare favor and error), and we will erase you, and cover your (sins). And Allah has a great bounty” (Surat al-Anfaal: 29)
Then what are the whispers that come from this demon? Coverage from the Lentera Jiwa Network Youtube network, IbnulQoyyimrahimahullah discusses that there are 6 points which are whispers that come from the evil one.
1. Prefer to hypothesize
Satan keeps people busy imagining what has happened and makes them hypothesize. “If it happens like this, after that it definitely won’t happen like this” and so on.
The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam has advised us at length with his saying which means:
“If something you don’t want deceives you, then don’t say ‘if I do this it will surely be like this and that’ but say “Qodarullahwa ma syaa’afa’ala” because if you do it will open (doors) the activities of the evil one” (HR. Muslim)
2. about points and haram
The effective whisper of the evil one is when the evil one has the ability to charge and control our hearts and minds to the promotion phase.
We are welcomed to follow our passion when we are faced with vile points, so we must get rid of this immediately.
For example imagining if he is a prophet, or difficult things that will surely make him inhabited and only being chased.
It is different if what he dreams of is something that he can achieve, for example he dreams of becoming a translator and after that he thinks about how to achieve his goal, after that this is a good dream.
4. The idea of the point is wrong
For example, he thought about what it would be like to drink alcohol and so on.
5. The idea of a point that doesn’t make sense
For example throwing up useless ideas, points that have never been debated such as the existence of various other animals in outer space.
6. Those who doubt the existence of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala
Satan in our minds to doubt and doubt the presence of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, to doubt His attributes to test whether Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala really exists or not.
Or also the problem of Allah’s attributes where he questions literally or his form and treatment so that these thoughts keep him busy from things that are truly beneficial to his heart and mind.
The scholars say whether the whispering of the devil is through backbiting, disbelief or other things.
“Whoever comes to the heart of disbelief and only a trajectory that accidentally appears and after that it immediately disappears, after that he is not a disbeliever and is not guilty at all” (Al-Azkar An-Nawawi, p. 345
