More Pearls of Wisdom:. It happens that someone may wake up from the state of heedlessness, perversity and going astray from the Creator and His ordinances and chains of lust find in himself a desire to forsake all these and return to his Lord. At this very moment, Satan appears and starts to whisper to him that he is too weak to resist these lusts and desires. He tries to convince him that he will always be subject to such immoral acts and responsive to their demands.
In so doing, Satan may also remind him of some of his past bad deeds and the taste of failure he found so many times following unsuccessful attempts to fight against these lusts and personal whims. Satan affirms him that all his present or even future efforts will be of no avail no matter how serious he is. Consequently, one gives in, obeys Satan and, finally, gives himself up to lustful desires and fails to subject himself to reason.
The question that begs answering here is: Is there anything that chains of lust protect one from getting misled by this deception? Ash-Shams If Satan is the one who tempts man to be super responsive to his lustful desires, it is Allah Alone Who helps man to curb them and stop them at their legal boundaries.
Man, here as a disobedient slave, should approach his Creator through humility and poverty, begging Him to ease what is hard, and to elevate him to the levels of the virtuous. Indeed if Allah approaches the sinners and wrongdoers, He will change their sins into good deeds. He brings them out from the veils of darkness into the light.
And those who disbelieve, their patrons are false deities. They bring them out from the light into the veils of darkness. These are the Companions of the Fire of Hell. Al-Baqarah 2: It is by the Grace and Kindness of Allah that He always reminds His slave of his own weakness and inability in a way to lead him to direct his face towards Him to ask for sustenance, help and relief from all difficulties.
Therefore, it is the duty of the believers upon seeing such danger; namely, their human weakness as well as their inability to resist it; it is their duty to instantly flee to Allah, take refuge in Him, and ask Him for help. All people are equal in terms of this weakness; there is no doubt about this. Yet, they differ according to their differences and variation in fleeing to Allah and seeking protection in Him.
This is Prophet Yusuf Peace be upon him as complaining to Allah about his weakness before the seduction of the wife of the then High Minister of Egypt as saying. Prison would be dearer to me than that to which they call me. Yusuf Thus He turned their cunning away from him. To conclude, whoever depends on himself to get released from his lusts and sensual desires will surely suffer from despair when chains of lust attempts are gone with the wind. And, whoever finds it strange or impossible that Allah will save him from his lusts and take him out of his heedlessness has declared divine power impotent and this is even worse than despair.

Al-Baqarah 2: It is by the Grace and Kindness of Allah that He always reminds His slave of his own weakness and inability in a way to lead him to direct his face towards Him to ask for sustenance, help and relief from all difficulties. Yusuf 34 To conclude, whoever depends on himself to get released from his lusts and sensual desires will surely suffer from despair when his attempts are gone with the wind. However, whoever depends on Allah with the certain belief that he is incapable of resisting by himself and that there is no power or might save with Allah, despair will never find a way to his heart.
This is because the former depends on himself, while the latter depends on Allah the Almighty Who Alone holds invincible power over all things. References Hammad, Ahmad Zaki.
