Na'eem Ibn Hammad is reported to have said: "A group of Muslims can constitute one community when they sincerely show obedience to Allah (SWT). But if such a group go astray, one should hold fast to what they used to do when they were sincere; and if one is left on his own striving hard to maintain his faith, he constitutes a whole community by himself because Allah (SWT) is with him

Another weapon used by Satan isthat of fear. He tries to frighten the believers of being harmed by his followers and advocates. Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Qur'an: "It is only Shaitan (Satan) that suggests to you the fear of his Auliya' [supporters and friends (polytheists, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah (SWT) and in His Messenger Muhammad]; so fear them not, but fear Me, if you are (true) believers:"(3: 175)

Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Qur'an: "Shaitan (Satan) threatens you with poverty and orders you to commit Fahsha' (evil deeds, illegal sexual intercourse, sins)." (2:268). Therefore, one might say to himself: 'what chance is there of finding a lawful job if I quit that (unlawful) one? But'

Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Qur'an: "And whoever fears Allah (SWT) and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (of every difficulty). And he will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine."(65: 2-3)

The same applies to those dealing in usury money; they claim that people around them are getting wealthier every day, and so they should keep up with them no matter what the means is. In this way, evil is dressed up in borrowed robes that hide its true nature

4- Factors that Make Satan's Job Easier A-Ignorance: it is very difficult for Satan to approach those dedicated to learning B-Lack of Faithfulness and Obedience: Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Qur'an: "[Iblis (Satan)] said: 'By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all, Except Your chosen slaves amongst them (i.e. faithful, obedient, true believers of Islamic Monotheism).' " (38: 82-83) C-Not Taking Heed of Satan's Ways 5-Remedy When causes become known, remedy is possible

1-Faith in Allah (SWT): Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Qur'an: "Verily! He (Shaitan [Satan] has no power over those who believe and put their trust only in their Lord (Allah (SWT))." (16: 99)

2-Obtaining Islamic knowledge from the Right Sources 3-Taking refuge and shelter in Allah (SWT): Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Qur'an: "And if an evil whisper comes to you from Shaitan (Satan), then seek

refuge with Allah (SWT). Verily, He is All-Hearer, All-Knower."(7: 200). This can be done by reciting the last two chapters of the Holy Qur'an, namely Surat Al-Falaq (The Daybreak) and Surat An-Nas (mankind)
