A Reminder of Who is the Real Enemy
It's me again, Zakee, and I know it's been a while since my last posting. I've been busy preparing for my return back into society after the passage of Prop. 57 by the Californian voters. In doing so, I was downsizing and eliminating unnecessary documents and shredding papers. I came upon an old letter that a friend gave me when I first embraced al-Islam many years ago. As I re-read it, I can see how it really applies to me, as I am so close to getting out. I will share it with you now, and if you get anything good out of it, that came from Allah (God); if you don't, it doesn't apply to you. Keep on doing what you do.
A Letter from Shaitan (i.e. The Devil)
I, Shaitan, saw you yesterday as you began your daily chores. You started your day without offering your fajr (i.e. morning) prayer. As a matter of fact, you didn't even bless your meals or pray the isha (i.e. night) prayer before going to bed last night!
You are so unthankful; I like that about you. I cannot tell you how glad I am that you have not changed your way of living. You are mine!
Remember, you and I have been going steady for years, and I still don't love you. As a matter of fact, I hate you because I hate Allah (God). I am using you to get even with him. He kicked me out of paradise (i.e. Heaven), and I am going to use you as long as possible to pay him back.
You see, Allah (God) loves you, and he has great plans in store for you, if you stay close to him and follow his rules and instructions. But you have yielded your life to me, and I am going to make your life so very miserable.
That way, we will be together always, and I want you to know that this will only hurt you and not Allah (God). Thanks to you, I am really showing him who's the boss in your life.
Think about it: we have had plenty of good times. We have been watching dirty movies, cursing people out, partying, putting your desires first, working for the pleasure of power, greed, and self-glorification, neglecting the poor, stealing, lying, fornicating, overeating, gossiping, getting intoxicated, and your wonderful addiction to drugs is great because it just keeps pulling you down, down, down and keeps up the backbiting and disrespecting adult you are.
Oh yeah, my favorite. Men (and women) sleeping with your own sex... That is really exciting for me because you people never learn! Even though it is in your holy books that cities like Sodam and Gomorrah were destroyed because of their sins and men having sex with other men. You never understand.
My very favorite is the way you people do not stay married anymore. It doesn't get any better than that! you have no respect for the mosque, the church, or the synagogue and I love your bad attitudes. Surely, you do not want to give all these things up!
Come on, let's burn together forever! I've got some hot plans for us. This is just a letter to show my appreciation to you. I wanted to say thanks for letting me use you for most of your foolish life.
I mean, you are soooo gullible. I laugh at you all the time. When you are so tempted by sin, you easily give in. Ha, ha, ha, ha. Oh you make me so happy. Your sinning is beginning to take its toll on your life. What!? You don't believe me? Just take a look in the mirror. You look twenty years older. But I do need some new blood, so go ahead and teach some children how to sin.
All you have to do is neglect them, smoke, drink alcoholic beverages around them, party, cheat, steal, gamble, hit your significant others, and do anything else you can think of that will earn Allah's (God's) anger. Do all this in the presence of kids, and they will do it too. Trust me, kids are like that!
Well, I have to let you go for now, but I'll be back in a couple of minutes to tempt you again. And if you are smart, you would run fast to the remembrance of Allah (God) every time I come to you.
Lastly, I advise you to live for Allah (God) with what little bit of life you have left. Although it is not in my nature to warn anyone, especially not you, but to be your age and still sinning, it's becoming a bit ridiculous. So please don't take what I'm saying in the wrong way. Because I still hate you and I always will.
The avowed enemy of humans
Shaitan (The Devil)
You see, dear reader, sometimes in life we all need a reality check, that something that grabs our attention.
When I first read this letter, as I re-read it again just now, it caused me to reflect on my relationship with Allah (God) and areas that I could improve upon. So the purpose of all of this is to share it with you and to let it serve as a reminder of who the real enemy of humankind is and how the Shaitan (Devil) thinks.
