The Fifth Talk Satan has nothing to do
with the sincere people
Another important aspect of Ista-aaza is sincerity.
This saying of Satan is recorded in the Holy Quran:
Qala beizzateka laghwainahum ajmaeena ala ibadeka
minhum al mukhliseen"
By Your Honor O Sustainer! Excepting your sincere
creatures, I shall tempt (lead astray) everyone else."
The purport of sincerity (Iqlas) has been explained
at various places in the Holy Quran. As the need arose,
we have referred to this aspect in our talk and there
is further need to stress on this aspect.
Thus it is established that the Ista-aaza of
only the persons sincere to Allah is appropriate. Since
Satan has no influence on such persons they are those
who escape from his machinations.
