Know Who Your Enemies Are | Citocs-Ep19 | Mufti Menk

Yes, we do have enemies. We may know some of them and perhaps we don’t know some of them but the biggest enemy is the devil/shaitan.

He makes us think at times beyond the level that we’re supposed to be thinking upon and we start doubting people. He creates fear in our hearts.

He makes us doubt good people sometimes and we begin to think that perhaps they are our enemies. Yet they’re good people and sometimes he makes us draw closer to the real enemies so that we become those who have lost either in our relationship with Allah or in any other way.

وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِأَعْدَائِكُمْ ۚ وَكَفَىٰ بِاللَّهِ وَلِيًّا وَكَفَىٰ بِاللَّهِ نَصِيرًا – 4:45

Wallaahu a’lamu bi a’daaa’i-kum; wa kafaa billaahi waliyyanw wa kafaa billaahi naseera

And Allah is most knowing of your enemies; and sufficient is Allah as an ally, and sufficient is Allah as a helper.

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala tells us in Surat annisa. That He knows better than you who your enemies are. SubhanAllah. How many of us have actually accused the innocent of being an enemy? How many of us have befriended an enemy? So we’re sometimes confused because we judge people. May Allah (SWT) forgive us.

If you develop a correct relationship with Allah, he gives you the ability to distinguish. Do you have a good relationship with Allah? Yes, well then forget about it. He will protect you. He will definitely be there for you.
