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.”

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “It is an obligation for a person to turn to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, because He is the One in whose Hands is the dominion of the heavens and the earth, so do not, for example, rely on the firmness of eemaan in your heart, relying on [the idea that] the Devil will not overcome you and that the desires of the soul that orders evil will not infiltrate you, rather always recourse back to Allaah, the Most High, and ask Him for steadfastness.”
Tafseer Surah Yaa Seen, p. 26.
