Striving Against the Devil
Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Ibn al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, ‘Striving [JIhaad] against the Devil consists of two steps: that a person strives against him to repel uncertainties and doubts, and that he strives against him to repel corrupt intentions and desires.’”
Mukhtaaraat min Zaadil-Ma’aad, p. 116.
O Allaah, I am indeed harsh, so make me gentle; I am weak, so make me strong; and I am miserly, so make me generous.
Umar bin Al-Khattaab (RadhiAllaahu ‘Anhu)

Allāh descends every night to the sky closest to the earth and says, ‘He is a liar who claims to love Me, yet when night time comes, he sleeps away from Me. Doesn’t one who love the other long to spend the private moments alone with him?’
