A Letter from Shaytaan


I saw you yesterday as you began your daily chores. You awoke without stopping to make salaah.

As a matter of fact, you didn’t even bless your meals, or pray before going to bed last night. You are so ungrateful. I like that about you. I cannot tell you how glad I am that you have not changed your way of living. Fool you are mine!

Remember, you and I have been going steady for years, and I still don’t love you as yet. As a matter of fact, I hate you because I hate Allah. I am only using you to get even with him. He kicked me out of Jannah and I am going to use you as long as possible to pay him back .You see, you fool, Allah loves you and he has great plans in store for you. But you have yielded your life to me and I am going to make your life a living hell. That way we will be together twice.

I’m really showing him who’s boss! With all of the good times we’ve had ………. Watching dirty movies, cursing people, partying, stealing, lying, being hypocritical, indulging in fornication, overeating, telling dirty jokes, gossiping, backstabbing people, disrespecting your parents and adults and those in leadership positions. No respect for the Masaajid, bad attitudes. You and I. We did this thing together and I don’t think you gonna give them up. You seem to enjoy every bit of it.

I don’t think you’ve realized that we gonna be together for a very long time and that’s if you don’t give up being my friend and ally. Have you realized that should you die in this state then, you and I are gonna burn together. Anyway I’d just like to say thanks my mate. Thank you for letting me use you for most of your foolish life. You are just so gullible and so easily swayed that sometimes I cannot help but roll in laughter at your unmindfulness and how easily you can get caught in sin. Sin is beginning to take its toll on your life. You look 20 years older. Oh! And before I forget, you’re getting old now and I need some new blood. I’m sure you can help ………….. so please go ahead and recruit new blood for me.

It’s easy! All you have to do is smoke, drink alcoholic beverages, do some drugging, cheat, gamble, gossip, fornicate, and listen to and dance to the top 10 jams. Do all this in the presence of children and they will simply adore you and not long after that, they will want to be just like you.

Anyway I got to go now but will be back in a while to tempt you again. Well that’s my mission you know. If you were smart, you would run somewhere, confess your sins and implore for your creators forgiveness and mend your ways. What little you have of your life, spend it in the worship of your creator. He is most loving and forgiving. He only wants the best for you and will forgive any and every transgression of yours.

I have become despondent of his mercy but not you. You still have respite so grab hold of it before its too late.

Hey! Remember it’s not my nature to warn anyone, but to be your age and to be still sinning is a bit ridiculous.
