2:208 If you are not OBEYING Allah COMPLETELY, you are also obeying shaitan
The Ayah 2:208
“O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.”
“হে ঈমানদার গন! তোমরা পরিপূর্ণভাবে ইসলামের অন্তর্ভুক্ত হয়ে যাও এবং শয়তানের পদাংক অনুসরণ কর না। নিশ্চিত রূপে সে তোমাদের প্রকাশ্য শত্রু।”
Does this sound like Allah talking 2 different things here?
Enter into Islam COMPLETELY
Do not follow shaitan’s footstep.
Of course, it is two different things. One is an instruction to do and one is prohibition not to do.
That’s the first thing to understand from this.
But then, why Allah Subhanahu put this together? Does it sound more like they have a close link to each other?
Of course, they do. If you use your brain to just give it a little thought you will see just one strong relation between the two, which is,
If you do not obey Allah completely, you will definitely also follow shaitan. This is the certain info, certain knowledge for you O Muslim, from the one who made you.
What is complete Islam?
It is what encompasses all guidelines, laws, instructions, prohibitions, limits for all aspects of life.
If you leave something from there would it be a complete Islam?
No, if there is not complete Islam, the missing part is taken and filled by the way of shaitan.
Now apply it to all those instructions and limits and prohibitions of Allah that you are not following and then you can see who you follow, none other but shaitan.
What is a big chunk of Islam that the entire Ummah has abandoned?
Khilafah, Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun
And then what is the next best chunk of that complete Islam that Ummah abandoned and made almost Haram to pronounce and define it intentionally wrongly?
Jihad. Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun
Therefore, what is the path the Muslims heading towards?
The path of shaitan.
And where the path of shaitan leads to?
So, how does that manifested in the open eyes even to a school kid?
They are obeying and following the representative of shaitan, the Taghut, the United Nations, the head of the Taghut and the Taghut of their respective countries. Taghut gives them law of everything and they are following it.
May Allah guide Muslim fully in the path of Allah subhanahu, Ameen.
