‘…he will diminish’Posted: July 13, 2012
Abul Malih said:
I was riding on a mount behind the Prophet (peace be upon him) and then it stumbled. Thereupon I said: May the devil perish!
He said: Do not say: May the devil perish! For if you say that, he will swell so much so that he will be like a house, and say: By my power. But say ‘Bismillah’ for when you say that, he will diminish so much so that he will be like a fly.
[An-Nasai 6/142, Ahmad 5/59 and Abu Dawud 4946, Authenticated by Al-Albani]
Keep your tongue always moist with the remembrance of Allah. Not only will you feel an incredible sense of ease and tranquility but you’ll also keep the Shaytan away from you. Say ‘bismillah’ before you do everything…before you eat, walk out the house, get in your car, etc.
Please don’t forget this!
