Divine Love -
Satan is the enemy, and Allah’s greatest favour
Our Grandsheikh says that satan is the biggest favour to mankind from the Lord. Many people may be surprised to hear this; especially learned people, asking, “How can he say such a thing?”
Whoever is asking this is informing himself that he has not reached to wisdom.
Allah Almighty orders everyone to fight Iblis and says that he is our biggest enemy.
How is he also the biggest favour?
As a result of fighting against Iblis, believers reach to high stations; Awliya reach to top levels of sainthood and Prophets reach the rank of prophethood. Without Iblis there would be no believers, saints or Prophets.
High stations are reached by fighting Satan. Without stairs there is no climbing to the top. And Satan is the stairway to every level. If you like to reach to a high station in the Divine Presence – fight [him]
