“If you find within yourself one who is always commanding you with disobedience, miserliness, immoral and lewd sexual conduct – then that is the Shaitān. It is therefore upon you to seek refuge with Allāh (عز وجل) because Allāh commands with that. Allāh (عز وجل) stated:
وَإِمَّا يَنزَغَنَّكَ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ نَزْغٌ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ[/arabic-font]
“And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.” (7:200)
So He hears your seeking of refuge with Him, and He knows your situation and knows how to drive away the Shaitān from you.”
