Sometimes this thought hits me:
"It's pretty easy to be a normal human being isn't it? You can do a grave mistake and you can blame them all on the shaytan for whispering to you!"
But man, no. Allah said you can't. Because He only gives the shaytan the access to your sadr(chest/breasts), but not to your qalb(heart). You hold the key to your heart. So all blame on you. You can be a friend to yourself, or you can be an enemy within yourself.
When syaitan try to whisper in your ears, say the isti'azah!
Sometimes this thought hits me: There's a lot of times
"Ahh...just rest the case. YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE, FATIMA. OUT OF THE WAY. YOU'RE BUGGING THOSE DU'AT. YOU'RE NOTHING BUT A PEBBLE IN THIER SHOES. JUST FACE IT."
But Alhamdulillah I have ustazs (and nasheeds:D) to remind me almost every day that each and every one of us is important in dakwah. No one is unwanted. No one should get out of the way. No one is bugging no body.
It's just the whisper of shaytan!
So, shoo you bad thoughts~
