To test the human race Almighty Creator has given not only Shaitan, but also his assistants to instill in people a delusion, fear, excite their imaginations.
Waswaas induces human gut to the sinful, describing it in the most vivid colors, gradually takes possession of human will,and turns it into a desirable goal.
And, as Allah Almighty said in the Quran:
ألم تر أنا أرسلنا الشياطين على الكافرين تؤزهم أزا
"Do you not see that We have sent the devils upon the disbelievers, inciting them to [evil] with [constant] incitement?"(The Quran, 19:83)
Shaitan instilled waswaas in Adam (A.S.) and Hawa (A.S.), and that was the reason for their expulsion from paradise. As described in the Holy Quran:
فوسوس لهما الشيطان ليبدي لهما ما ووري عنهما من سوآتهما وقال ما نهاكما ربكما عن هذه الشجرة إلا أن تكونا ملكين أو تكونا من الخالدين
"But Satan whispered to them to make apparent to them that which was concealed from them of their private parts. He said, "Your Lord did not forbid you this tree except that you become angels or become of the immortal". (The Quran, 7:20)
When Shaitan deceived them, sayng:
فوسوس إليه الشيطان قال يا آدم هل أدلك على شجرة الخلد وملك لا يبلى
"Then Satan whispered to him; he said, "O Adam, shall I direct you to the tree of eternity and possession that will not deteriorate?" (The Quran, 20:120)
Therefore, in Surah An-Nas Allah Almighty tells us:
"From the evil of the retreating whisperer - Who whispers [evil] into the breasts of mankind". (The Quran, 114:4-5)
• Kufr and Shirk. This is what Satan seeks from a person in the first place.
• Bid'at. Shaitan loves it more than anything else.
• Large sins. Shaitan in this regard is very diligent. Especially if it's a scientist, followed by people.
• Small sins. Little sins gathered, may cause greater misery.
• Frequent mubaha performance. When a person busy business without bringing any harm nor good, deprived of the opportunity to do more good deeds.
May Allah Almighty preserve us from Shaitan tricks! Amin.
