Fard 15: To regard Satan (Shaytan) as the number one personal and public enemy.
It is obligatory to see Shaytan as an ardent enemy because he (Shaytan) sees us as an enemy. A believer must know his tricks and deceit and ways to protect himself from Shaytan.
Ustadh Mahmud explains the methods that Shaytan uses to deceive human beings into thinking that evil is good. He then explains the various ways we can seek refuge from Shaytan, the accursed. Ustadh Mahmud also covers the interesting conversation between Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Shaytan, during which Shaytan was commanded by Allah s.w.t to speak the truth and answer every question.
The series of lectures entitled 54 Fara’id, delivered by Ustadh Mahmud A. Kürkçü, covers the basics of Islam as enumerated by the great Imam of the tabi’een, Hasan Al-Basri(rh). It is incumbent upon every Muslim to be aware of and put these basic principles into practice in their daily lives.
