Temptation- Temptation is the desire to perform an action that one may enjoy immediately or in the short term but will probably later regret for various reasons: legal, social, psychological (including feeling guilt ), health-related, economic, etc.
How wonderful is it to stick to your principles, despite temptations!
Go eat pork! You are wondering why i said that you should eat pork?
Fine!!!! Why do you listen to music? Pork is haraam and so is music!
If you listen to music, why not eat pork too??
NO!! I am NOT encouraging that you go eat pork…but i’m wording my thoughts!
Don’t eat pork and don’t listen to music!
We all know our sins … we know something is wrong but we follow it… i did not say i’m not guilty, we all are!
The problem is that we live in a society where it is really difficult to find people who stick to their principles and not follow the temptation.
When you learn to say, “NO” that is the day you avoid the temptation! No to something that is against Islam.
Remember, Uncle Abu? Yeah, so he is a supermarket owner. Now anyways, his friend Yunus comes to him and advises him to sell cigarettes to increase his profit. Uncle Abu can get carried away … but fortunately Uncle Abu says, “Never, this is my grandfathers shop and i don’t want the barakah to decrease or even get removed..”
In the past, some disbelievers tried to make Nabi صلي الله عليه و سلم give up some of His صلي الله عليه و سلم principles. Allah said, “They wish that you compromise, so they too can compromise..”
The temptations are there … avoid it!!
You have your deen …. follow it…
It can be tough …but if you learn to care-less of what people say and you know that you pleasing your Allah … then all is good!
“Do not obey those who reject the truth. They wish that you compromise, so they too can compromise.”
AVOID THE TEMPTATION
