In the above plot, the percentage denotes
how strong is the Jinn companion's hold of the individual. As mentioned
elsewhere on this site, the test is about a power struggle. Satan wants
to bind us in slavery using a thing or a person, when we accept his
polytheistic view that the thing or person has inherent power to
gratify us, we fall in our companion's control.
This phenomena is best noticed in the people, after drinking alcohol or
abusing drugs, they show a change in personality! why? because it's a
separate entity that took the chance and jumped infront of the steering
One of the main desires Satan uses to bind us in slavery (and distract
us from God) is women (or men). There is nothing wrong about a natural
healthy attraction to the opposite sex, as it is God's deliberate
[3:14] Adorned for the people are the worldly
pleasures, such as the women,
having children, piles upon piles of gold and silver, trained horses,
livestock, and crops. These
are the materials of this world. A far
better abode is reserved at GOD.
Why did God create such a desire?
Initiator of the heavens and the
earth. He created for you from among
yourselves spouses - and also for the animals. He thus provides you
with the means to multiply. There is nothing that equals Him. He
Hearer, the Seer.
[2:223] Your women are the bearers of your
seed. Thus, you may enjoy this
privilege however you like, so long as you maintain righteousness. You
shall observe GOD, and know that you will meet Him. Give good news to
[30:21] Among His proofs is that He created for
you spouses from among
yourselves, in order to have
tranquility and contentment with each
other, and He placed in your hearts love and care towards your
In this, there are sufficient proofs for people who think.
God could have created us without
any needs, no need for food, no need for spouse, no need for work..etc.
He could have provided us with everything directly. However the test is
all about appreciation, 1- we seek God's provisions, 2- God sends the
provisions, 3- We thank Him alone and be appreciative.
We go to work, not because God wants us to work, but to test our
appreciation of the job He made avaialable and the money He grants us
through it. As wise, we get married to seek the tranquility,
contentment and as a means to multiply. Imagine someone who is living
by himself, the next day he becomes two personsthrough marriage!,
the year after he becomes four!! God be glorified, isn't it a miracle
that his number was multiplied out of nothing, wouldn't such a person
be appreciative and feel indebted to the Creator of it all.
It is not your money or your children that bring you
closer to us. Only
those who believe and lead a righteous life will receive the reward for
their works, multiplied manifold. In the abode of Paradise they will
live in perfect peace.
As you can see, the sexual gratification is but a byproduct, an
incentive God designed to encourage us get married, and to strengthen
this bond between the man and woman. However it is not the main goal of
marriage, since it doesn't last long.
What lasts is the contentment, the tranquility, the love and care, the
children, the crop God grants the married couple, and above all the
feeling of appreciation towards God. These are the meanings behind
What Satan does to distract us from the meaning is to stress on the
byproducts. For example, he stresses on the taste of food, the looks of
a woman, the title of a job..etc. Thus he strips us of the real
meaning, and pushes us into the deep pits of the illusion.
Naturally these things cannot satisfy anybody, since the meaning is
lost. When we skip the meaning to something else, God provides but
holds the real pleasure.
Only the believers can see the meaning, and thus enjoy life:
[7:32] Say, "Who prohibited the nice things GOD
has created for His creatures,
and the good provisions?" Say, "Such provisions are to be enjoyed
this life by those who believe. Moreover, the good provisions
exclusively theirs on the Day of Resurrection." We thus explain the
revelations for people who know.
As for the disbelievers, they live
and die like animals, they can't see or feel the "unseen meaning":
GOD admits those who believe and lead a righteous life into gardens
with flowing streams. As for
those who disbelieve, they live and eat
like the animals eat, then end up in the hellfire.
All they can see is "the visible":
They care only
about things of this world that are visible to them, while being
totally oblivious to the Hereafter.
Their works are like a mirage, can
not grant them any satisfaction, and that's why they self indulge in a
desperate attempt to satisfy their soul's need for God's meaning:
As for those who
disbelieve, their works are like a mirage in the
desert. A thirsty person thinks that it is water. But when he reaches
it, he finds that it is
nothing, and he finds GOD there instead, to
requite him fully for his works. GOD is the most efficient reckoner.
Like a drug addict, a pornography
addict, or a sex addict, they keep revolving in a never ending spiral
of despair, misery, guilt with no real satisfaction.
is the only legitimate supplication, while the idols they
implore beside Him, cannot ever respond. Thus, they are like those who
stretch their hands to the water, but nothing reaches their mouths. The
supplications of the disbelievers are in vain.
what makes someone enter such a vicious cycle in the first place?
1-Exactly like Satan tempted Adam and his wife to eat from the
forbidden tree, he is doing this trick day and night through his Jinn
The devil's lie:
But the devil
whispered to him, saying, "O Adam, let me show you the tree of eternity and unending
What's wrong with this
promise is relating the power to the tree instead of its Creator. An
addict believe Satan's whisper that the drug, woman, picture, movie
will grant him satisfaction and gratification, next he finds himself
self indulging in his addiction, why? because the creature itself
cannot give us any real satisfaction without God's authorization, and
because of this lack of lasting satisfaction from the object of
addiction or obsession, the addict keeps coming for more, yet with no
gain except misery and guilt.
As for the believers they are certain that only God can grant them the
real thing, and therefore they follow His system (e.g: marriage) and
ask Him alone for provisions.
2- Satan has a bag of tricks to dupe us, one of the main tricks is
"Fear", many addicts say that they have to self indulge because they
are afraid they cannot afford marriage. This excuse only reveal their
doubts about God, He created us, He knows our needs, and once we trust
Him enough and make a decision to seek His provision through the
righteous channels, everything will fall in place and He will provide
for us as per His promise:
You shall encourage
those of you who are single to get married. They
may marry the righteous among your male and female servants, if they
are poor. GOD will enrich them from His grace. GOD is Bounteous,
leads us to a surprising conclusion, the
people who claim they are poor and that's why they have to commit
adultery (or pornography) are deliberately deprived from God's
provisions (money, spouse) because of their doubts!
[42:26] Responding to Him are those who
lead a righteous life. He will shower them with His blessings. As for
the disbelievers, they have incurred a severe retribution.
If GOD increased the
provision for His
servants, they would transgress on earth. This is why He sends it
precisely measured to whomever He wills. He is fully Cognizant and Seer
of His servants.
He is the One who sends down the rain after
they had despaired, and spreads His mercy. He is the only Master, Most
that the money, food, spouse, job or any of God's provisions does not
come in abundance except if we have reached a level of certainty and
devotion to God, and denounced any claims of Satan that the creatures
themselves can satisfy us.
Ofcourse that doesn't mean all rich people are righteous! many of them
are given the vast wealth only to lead them on and confirm their
transgression so that they may incur their just requital.
Satan may also create illusions and lies to instill fear and
prevent us from following God's system, for example he may convince us
that we cannot get married, because of some defect in the body, looks,
family, class or whatever a flimsy excuse he uses to divert us from
God's system into his own system of despair and misery.
is the devil's system to instill fear into his subjects. Do not fear
them and fear Me instead, if you are believers.
He may also push us to the extreme of idolizing women, as if they are
untouchable perfect statues, he magnifies this idea through the movie
stars and models..etc who behave so arrogantly that many think they
can't be human!.
Many people fall ino this deception and idolize women (or men) creating
an invisible barrier between them and these "perfect" creatures.
In truth nobody is perfect and we are all 100 % dependent on God, thus
we should recognize the people's weaknesses and need for God, otherwise
we will surely idolize them, like all the saints and prophets who were
worshipped because of this "perfect infallible creature" myth.
No healthy relationship can be built on reverence of a human being, nor
fear or idolatery. Only equals can sincerely love each other.
wife of the governer of Egypt, idolized Joseph and was totally obsessed
with him! why? because of relating his looks to him and not to God.
Some women in the city gossiped: "The governor's wife is trying
seduce her servant. She is deeply in love with him. We see that she has
When she heard of their gossip, she invited them, prepared for them a
comfortable place, and gave each of them a knife. She then said to him,
"Enter their room." When they saw him, they so admired him, that they
cut their hands. They said,
be to GOD, this
is not a human
being; this is an honorable angel."
[12:32] She said, "This is the one you blamed
for falling in love with. I
did indeed try to seduce him, and he refused. Unless he does what I
command him to do, he will surely go to prison, and will be debased."
Note how the women idolized his
beauty (and failed to relate it to God), and how they got their
punishment immediately and cut their hands!
What intensifies this idolization of both sexes to the other sex is the
corrupt practices in our modern socities. Some societies prohibit any
healthy mixing between the men and women, naturally the fantasies build
up in the minds and draw an image of a perfect creature out of mere
On the other hand pornography (which has reached every house) as well
as the celebrity cult, promote this perfect image of women (or men) in
the minds of the innocent.
Thus Satan is pushing us with all his might into this pit of idolizing
women and thus failing to establish any healthy relationship with the
5- Satan may pull us in the other
direction of degrading women (or men), through a continous
promotion of women as only bodies and looks, no mention of the soul,
principles or values.
Beauty competitions, movie stars, and also pornography contribute to
this degradation of women into lifeless objects.
The societies that allow over mixing between men and women fall to this
trick of Satan, and like a dog eating a bone, the adulterer keeps
indulging with no limits and no satisfaction at all.
No satisfaction of the soul = More indulgence
When there is an extreme surrender to Satan, the individual gives in to
his Jinn companion. The Jinn companion jumps to the chance and start
manipulating his victim to self indulge, because the more the human
indulges, the more control the Jinn get, and the ultimate gratification
for the Jinn is to totally control his victim against God's design
which entails that the Jinn (Satan) serves the Human being (Adam). Then
the Jinn begins implementing the agenda of distorting God's design.
[4:119] "I will mislead them, I will entice
them, I will command them to
(forbid the eating of certain meats by) marking the ears of livestock,
and I will command them to
distort the creation of GOD." Anyone who
accepts the devil as a lord, instead of GOD, has incurred a profound
The ultimate goal of satan
and his Jinn agents is to introduce their own laws and systems instead
of God's, that's why the homosexuals commit this gross sin, they are
controlled by their Jinn companions to the extent of losing touch with
their Human part, and thus they become attracted to the same sex
against God's design.
6- Finally the final excuse to let us commit adultery is : " we have to
try the relationship first before marriage, maybe it won't work out! "
Nothing but doubts in God's absolute authority that brought us here on
earth. The above statment demonstartes the doubts of that individual.
If God created him, He must know his needs. If one chooses a spouse
that has the same belief "that none can harm or benefit except God
alone", he should "put his trust in God" and marry her, the doubts are
[2:221] Do not marry idolatresses unless they
believe; a believing woman is
better than an idolatress, even if you like her. Nor shall you give
your daughters in marriage to idolatrous men, unless they believe. A
believing man is better than an idolater, even if you like him. These
invite to Hell, while GOD invites to Paradise and forgiveness, as He
wills. He clarifies His revelations for the people, that they may take
[33:3] And put your trust in GOD. GOD suffices
as an advocate.
If we don't control our desires, we will be controlled. And if we
become controlled we will lose happiness now and forever in the
spiritual and physical sense. By following God's legal channel of
marriage, we are denouncing the devil and proclaiming that we believe
in God alone.There is no god except He.
After them, He substituted generations who lost the
(Salat), and pursued their lusts. They will suffer the consequences.
As for the one who
reverenced the majesty of his Lord, and enjoined the self from sinful
will be the abode.
Subdue your eyes:
[24:30] Tell the believing men
that they shall subdue their eyes (and not stare
at the women), and to maintain their chastity. This is purer for them.
GOD is fully Cognizant of everything they do.
[24:31] And tell the believing
women to subdue their eyes, and maintain their chastity. They
reveal any parts of their bodies, except that which is necessary. They
shall cover their chests, and shall not relax this code in the presence
of other than their husbands, their fathers, the fathers of their
husbands, their sons, the sons of their husbands, their brothers, the
sons of their brothers, the sons of their sisters, other women, the
male servants or employees whose sexual drive has been nullified, or
the children who have not reached puberty. They shall not strike their
feet when they walk in order to shake and reveal certain details of
their bodies. All of you shall repent to GOD, O you believers, that you
Adultery is forbidden:
[70:27] They reverence their
[70:28] Their Lord's
requital is not taken for granted.
[70:29] They keep their
[70:30] (They have
relations) only with their spouses, or what is legally theirs -
[70:31] anyone who
transgresses these limits is a sinner.
You shall not commit adultery; it is a gross sin, and an
Submit to God's design and legal systems:
O you who
believe, you shall embrace total submission; do not follow the steps of Satan
for he is your most ardent enemy.
