The Soul’s Snares

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Beware of the soul’s snares. Every time you find one [setting up] in your heart, seek protection in Allaah عز وجل, and don’t try to rationalise it [in an attempt to dismiss it]—instead first and foremost seek shelter with Allaah عز وجل. Because Allaah taught us this, saying, ‘And if an evil whisper from Satan tries to turn you away, then seek refuge in Allaah.’ [Fussilat 41:36] So there is neither refuge nor shelter except with Allaah عز وجل.”
