What is the means by which man can be protected from Satan‘s deeds and whispers and which can keep faith intact and behavior sound and straight?
There are two demands for this means. Firstly, one has to continually pray to Allah for protection from Satan‘s evil deeds and whispers, while firmly believing that none but Allah gives refuge from such things. Secondly, one must resolve to rid oneself of the doubts and whispers raised against the source and validity of faith and acts of worship. One must firmly believe that his faith is the right one and that whatever whispers he gets are all from Satan, who always plans to lead people into confusion and to put on them an unbearable burden in order to feel tired of worship and to think that it is not valid.
