Seven Levels for the Total Annihilation of Humans by Iblees arRajeem

Ustadh Muhammad alShareef gave a lecture about 5 years ago in Dallas, TX (Banu Ra’d) at an AlMaghrib Institute promotional event. The lecture was entitled “When Wolves become Shepherds: Devil’s Dawah Techniques”. It was recorded and later available for sale from EmanRush Audio (link). Part of the lecture focused on how Shaytaan or Iblees puts people in different levels in order of how to call them to evil. The following article is based on that part of the lecture.Shaytaan’s steps to misguide us are many. Each and everyone of us would fall into certain level with Shaytaan and Shaytaan would take the appropriate steps according to what level a person would fall in to take that person to their destruction. If Iblees were to write a business book he would entitle it something along the lines of, ‘Seven Levels for the Total Annihilation of Humans’, and thus the title of this article – Seven Levels for the Total Annihilation of Humans by Iblees arRajeem.

The Seven Levels for the Total Annihilation of Humans

Level One: Shirk and Kufr (Associating partners with Allah and disbelief)
This is the highest level. When a person reaches the highest level, they actually become part of the army of Iblees. This is for people who have reached this level after turning their backs on the truth in arrogance or heedlessness after knowing it or hearing about it. This can be made analogous to how vampires or werewolves work. When a vampire or werewolf bites someone, the person who is bitten turns over to the other side.

Musings #3: Want to Hold onto Burning Coal?

6.
It has been reported to have said by the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu’alayhi wa sallam):

“Holding onto one’s religion in the time of corruption will be like holding on to hot coal”

[Couldnt find reference, reference is needed]

7.
Abuz Zubair:

This is nothing but the strength of the Salafiyya itself that it doesn’t fall with the death of its leaders. It carries on. At the time of Imam Ahmad, virtually the entire Muslim world was forced to believe in the nonsense that you (Ahl alKalam) believe in, the creation of the Quran. It is only a few who save the day. And we are glad to be amongst the few, glad to hold on to the burning coal.

Abuz Zubair:

As far as I see it, this is nothing but the strength of the Salafiyya itself that it doesn’t fall with the death of its leaders.

If someone drops the hot coal. Someone else will grab it.

9. A good piece of advice for new Muslims: Every new Muslim should be told this and every Muslim should be reminded of this over and over again. Becoming Muslim is the easy part, maintaining your Islam is like holding onto hot coals. When one decides to be Muslim or more specifically be a Muslim practicing his religion and holding onto the Sunnah, he has to understand that Allah might put him in a position where he might have to hold onto the ‘burning coals’. Sympathize with the Muslim youth that arent adequately prepared to handle High School/College life and Islam. Usually end up dropping the ‘hot coal’.
