The Ninth Talk A sick heart is the eating
place of Satan
Your heart is under the observation of Satan. If he
feels that there is food for him in your heart that
it has craving for worldly riches and pomp, then certainly
it is the ideal place for him to entrench himself in.
If he notices that your heart is having so much avarice
that even after acquiring a lot it has craving for more
and is envious of others, then he is very pleased to
dwell therein. You may say aa oozu billahi min al
Shaitan ir rajeem a hundred thousand times, Satan
will tenaciously stay on!
Innal Shaitan lakum adu- annahu adu um mubeen-Satan
is your open enemy! The only remedy is that you
should dispel from your heart all the thoughts of things
that attract him. Then with one utterance of the words
aa oozu billah Satan will run away.
