Three ways to defeat Satan:
- If you are able to understand Satan’s frauds and tricks he cannot overpower you, just as a thief runs away when he comes to know that the people in the house are awake.
- Never respond to Satan’s call, nor show any interest in him nor follow in his footsteps. Satan is like a barking dog. If you turn attention to it, it will bark and jump at you to bite you; but if you ignore it, it will remain calm and quiet.
- Always keep yourself busy with rehearsing Allah’s names with your tongue as well as with your heart.
