Human beings are created to serve Allah and will be held responsible for all of the deeds they have done. Allah created human beings with an intrinsic nature that brings contentment and tranquility if they live their life according to Qur’anic moral values. Otherwise, it is impossible for a person to find peace. In the following verse Allah informed us of this:
So set your face firmly towards the religion, as a pure natural believer, Allah’s natural pattern on which He made mankind. There is no changing Allah’s creation. That is the true religion – but most people do not know it (Surat ar-Rum, 30)
Satan works with all his power to deflect people from the way of Allah. The satan’s oath to Allah is revealed to us in the following verses:
He [satan] said, ‘By Your misguidance of me, I will lie in ambush for them on your straight path. (Surat al-A'raf, 16)
Every human being will be tested as to which of these two ways they will adopt. People who seek the pleasure of Allah by obeying their conscience will attain paradise, with the permission of Allah; and people who obey the provocations of satan and their lower selves will experience a painful punishment.
Only believers turn towards Allah sincerely
Muslims should dedicate all of their existence, property, lives and death, indeed everything they possess, to make Allah pleased and content with them.
“Say: "Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death, are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds:” (Surat al-An'am, 162)
Muslims Serve Only Allah
A Muslim is set free from all creation, as he only seeks the satisfaction of Allah, he only begs from Him and he only wants or requests from Him. He never needs to make anyone satisfied except Allah and he never hopes for help from anyone except Allah. True freedom for man is only realized by heading towards Allah, by comprehending this fact.
“Remember when he said to his father, ‘Father, why do you worship what can neither hear nor see and is not of any use to you at all? (Surah Maryam, 42)
Conscience Always Helps Man to Find the Truth
Allah inspires all the people to obey their conscience. When people listen to what is inspired to them, they perform deeds which they hope Allah will approve of. Allah’s provision for this is as below:
“Nay,-whoever submits His whole self to Allah and is a doer of good,- He will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (Surat al-Baqara, 112)
Infinite Paradise Life is the Promise of Allah for the Believers
A Muslim makes “serious efforts” to gain the consent of Allah and the hereafter. He dedicates his goods and his life to attain the consent of Allah.: Allah describes this feature of the Muslims in the Holy Qur’an as below:
Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their wealth in return for the Garden. (Surat at-Tawba, 111)
Satan Will Leave the Believers Alone in the Hereafter
Our glorious Lord Allah informs us in the following verse: “The Evil One is but a traitor to man” (Surat al-Furqan, 29) People who live their lives according to Satan’s teachings will also be frustrated in the hereafter, because – as satan will himself admit on the judgement day - he deceived his deluded supporters with empty promises.
When the affair is decided satan will say, ‘Allah made you a promise, a promise of truth, and I made you a promise but broke my promise. I had no authority over you, except that I called you and you responded to me. Do not, therefore, blame me but blame yourselves. I cannot come to your aid nor you to mine. I reject the way you associated me with Allah before.’ The wrongdoers will have a painful punishment. (Surah Ibrahim, 22)
Satan Seeks to Make Arrogance Attractive to People
Arrogance is the most important features of Satan. He is accursed and banished from the presence of Allah because of his arrogance and disobedience.
Except for Iblis who was arrogant and was one of the kafirun.
75 He said, ‘Iblis, what prevented you prostrating to what I created with My own Hands? Were you overcome by arrogance or are you one of the exalted?’ " (Surah Sâd, 74-75)
This important disease of Satan is extremely dangerous for the people, because Satan attempts to infect his potential recruits with this destructive sickness. When a person falls ill with this disease, his thinking is clouded, and his consciousness is turned off.
Satan will try many ways to deflect people
Satan strives with all his power to drag all the people to hell. We are informed of this in the Holy Qur’an:
Then I will come at them, from in front of them and behind them, from their right and from their left. You will not find most of them thankful.’ (Surat al-A'raf, 17)
