ARROGANCE OF SATAN
Driven by pride and arrogance, man forgets that he is solely a servant

against Allah. Throughout history, people who out of their pride worshipped
themselves, have been mimicking the arrogance of Satan.
PASSIVISM IN RELIGION
The dictionary meaning of passive is someone does not
resist, who is inactive, placid, and lacks initiative. When we speak
of a passive person, we are talking of someone who is disinterested

around him, in short, someone who lives in his own little world.
This book specifically exposes those who deliberately adopt this
mood and work to spread this ugly model among Muslims. Every Muslim
must work to further the ideological struggle, as prescribed by
the Quran, against those evil-minded people who wish to create passive
and unenthusiastic Muslims and to prevent them from steering people

to earn the good pleasure of Allah, arranging their lives according
to His Will. A believer who decides to live for the cause of Allah
must abandon all the idols of the society of ignorance Devoted
to Allah is a summons to overthrow these idols for good.

SILENT LANGUAGE OF EVIL
People who have never seen one another, who live miles apart and belong
to different cultures, speak a diverse range of languages. However,
there is one common language that they all know very well: the silent
language of evil. This is a devious language that enables people to

you have been given is only the enjoyment of the life of this world
and its finery. What is with Allah is better and longer lasting.
So will you not use your intellect?" (Qur'an, 28:60), and are
invited to that which is "better and longer lasting" and

FOR THE CAUSE OF ALLAH
One who emigrates for the cause of Allah, that is, who leaves
his home because of the opposition he faces as he treads upon in
Allah's path, is a person who has devoted his life to that cause.
This is why it is one of the most important ways of worship that
causes one's faith to be firmly established. It would be wrong to
think that emigrating for the cause of Allah was a way of worship
peculiar to the times of the prophets. Every Muslim that follows
the way of the Prophets may confront a situation where he has to
move away from his home. The important thing is experiencing the
feeling of emigration and one's abandoning his established order

risks and possible distresses, only for the good pleasure of Allah,

nature. Allah made His religion very easy so that people can live

make the religion "easy". Righteous Muslims should obey
