    “And if he returns again?”
    The student again says, “ I would struggle against
    The scholar told him, “This can take forever. What if
    you are passing some sheep and their watchdog starts
    barking at you, preventing you from passing, what

    you go instead to the owner of the sheep, he will be
    able to make the dog desist.”(1)

    jall) is the strongest way to refute Satan and to get
    far away from him.

    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"

    "...Indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allaah, the Lord of the worlds" (6:162)
