SHAITAANI ‘RAMADHAN AFFIRMATIONS’
A Sister who has researched shaitaan’s ‘lifecoaching’ styles dubbed by deceits: “Ramadhan Affirmations”, presents the following exposition regarding this new Satanist fitnah:
“Moulana this year Ramadan I'm seeing many Muslim lifecoaches sharing "Ramadan Affirmations" (see attachments) Affirmations in their original form are based on the principles of law of attraction you attract what you believe, yet these Ramadan Affirmations are promoted as part of a spiritual Ramadan regime and are said to bring one closer to Allah!! Naoozubillah!
There is a trend that has been bothering me for a while. Those who were around in 2019/2020 are well aware of the research I've shared exposing certain lifecoaching styles that were rooted in Kufr and shirk. These styles promoted beliefs that stem from Buddhist and Taoist philosophy.
This year however, these modalities have taken a new approach. Using the very same principles and rituals, simply camouflaging them by adding more Islamic terminology and making great claims that their methods bring a person closer to Allah, Naoothubillah!!!
These ways of life/Deen that are being promoted are NOT from Qur’an and Sunnah so how can these life coaches make such claims? These modalities are based on Freudian, Eastern and Aristotolian views of the human psyche (soul). This is NOT THE WAY IT IS DESCRIBED IT IN QUR’AN AND HADITH!!
Imam Ghazali (RA) says regarding such people ;
"If a man knows not his own soul, which is the nearest thing to him, what is the use of his claiming to know others? It is as if a beggar who has not the wherewithal for a meal should claim to be able to feed a town." (The Alchemy of Happiness)
If these individuals DO NOT HAVE KNOWLEDGE of the reality of their own souls, what are they teaching?? How can this bring one closer to Allah or help one achieve success in Akhirah when the reality is that this way of life is an imitation of the Kuffaar?
The Qur’an is very clear on what is acceptable to Allah. Allah Ta ala Himself instructed Nabi sallallahu alaihi wasallam thus:
“Say, [O Muhammad], "If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." (3:3)
Are these "lifecoaches" directing you to follow the Sunnah or to follow the teachings of the likes of Dr Bruce Lipton, Robin Sharma, Jay Shetty, Tony Robbins and their ilk??
Remember : Indeed, the Deen (way of life) in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah , then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account. (3:19)
Allah ta ala further says in a hadith e Qudsi ;
“My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him.” It was related by al-Bukhari.
Allah, in His own Blessed words shows us the path in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS.
Know that anyone promoting a lifestyle that is not in alignment with the Sunnah and principles of Islam is giving you the WRONG DIRECTIONS. The soul is NOT FROM THIS EARTH, how can it find happiness in worldly pursuits. Truly a wise person understands that the delight of the soul lies in Connection with Allah. In learning about Him, in Remembering Him, in worshipping Him as He ought to be worshipped.
Anyone who promotes Affirmations does not understand the human psyche from the Islamic perspective. If they did they would not promote a practice that allows the mind to select an affirmation that will reprogram the qalb... We were born with a natural Fitra, being authentic means reverting to ITS ORIGINAL NATURE. Not allowing the ego to choose a purpose for the Fitra that is tied to this world!
Our purpose is to worship Allah. To navigate Dunya through the lense of Tawhid. This is how our Fitra was programmed when Allah ta ala asked us, Am I not your Lord?
We gave testimony against ourselves and Allah ta ala reminds us of this in the Qur’an.
The following saying is straight out of the Law of Attraction handbook, "I am are the two most powerful words, for whatever you put after them becomes your reality.....
According to Islam," I am" is the Mantra of an untamed nafs al Ammarah... Using such affirmations only serve to strengthen the nafs until it is no longer submissive to the Qalb!
People need motivation to do what Allah Created them for, not to feel good about this dunya as We are going to leave it soon. If we are successful in achieving our purpose we are rewarded with Jannah.
How can any Muslim promote the idea that our purpose is tied to this Dunya?? This Dunya is a prison for the Believer, a place of punishment for Adam Alayhis salaam.
Being independent of this world is seen as a sign of honor and acceptance with Allah.
May Allah remove the veils from our eyes and open the locks on our hearts. May He awaken us to this deception and grant us understanding. JazakAllahkhair
Was Salam u alaikum wa rahmatullah"
(End of Sister’s Naseehat)
This latest shaitaani deception is similar to the Ibleesi therapies which the Sister had also exposed. These ‘affirmations’ are based on shaitaani principles evolved by atheists and mushriks such as Freud, Aristotle, Bruce Lipton, Robin Sharma, Jay Shetty, Tony Robbins, and Buddhist and Taoist philosophy. There is no resemblance between Islam and any of the ideologies of these atheist kuffaar.
It is lamentable that Muslims allow themselves to be duped and misled by any Tom, Dick, Harry and Susie posing as philosophers. The utilization of Islamic terminology for their practices is a massive deception to hoodwink the ignorant and unwary. Muslims are expected to understand that the one and only method to gain proximity to Allah Ta’ala is via the Sunnah. There is absolutely no other pathway for the acquisition of peace and salvation other than Siraatul Mustaqeem which is the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
A slogan of these Satanists is: “I am in control of my free will.” Islamically this is a huge canard. It is a denial of Taqdeer and a denial of the fact that Allah Ta’ala is in control of our Will. Every aspect, move, step and motion is by the command of Allah Azza Wa Jal. The Qur’aan Majeed states:
“Not a leaf drops (from a tree) but He is aware. There is no seed in the darkness of the earth, nor anything moist or dry, but it is recorded in a Clear Book (in Looh-e-Mahfooz).”
Hadhrat Nabi Yusuf (Alayhis salaam) said: “I do not proclaim my nafs to be pure, for verily the nafs is a great commander (Ammaarah) of evil, except the one on whom Allah has mercy.” So when this is the belief of a Nabi of Allah Ta’ala, what can be said of the stupid kufr slogans of these ‘Affirmation’ morons who masquerade as expert psychologists and experts of the Brain. In reality they are agents of Iblees.
All such lifestyles and therapies are traps of kufr. With Islamic nomenclature ignorant Muslims are roped into the scheme of kufr. No one is in control of his/her nafs. Allah Ta’ala made the Ambiya (Alayhimus salaam) Ma’soom (Sinless) by His protection. If it was not Allah’s control and mercy, not even a Nabi would have remained pure of sins. The Auliya too are generally Mahfooz (Protected) by Allah Ta’ala. Their Riyaadhaat (spiritual exercises and penances) and Ibaadat are all by the fadhl of Allah Ta’ala, not by their will power. The one whose focus is on his will power will soon fall into shaitaan’s trap and become enslaved to his nafs. The Muslim’s focus must at all times be on Allah Ta’ala, not on his own hallucinated moral and spiritual prowess.
The only way of acquiring spiritual progress, divine proximity, moral purification and salvation is the Tareeqah of the Ambiya (Alayhimus salaam) which is encapsulated in the Sunnah. There is no need to look beyond the confines of the Sunnah for any aid in the spiritual realm. Any lifecoaching style beyond the confines of the Sunnah and Shariah is pure satanism.
