[Here’s Day 22.]
f) “I’m too sinful to ask Allah.”
I discussed this issue on Day 21 with regards to grave worshippers i.e. that they use this as an excuse to call out to dead people.
However, there are others who don’t call out to other than Allah – but they don’t call out to Allah either, under the false premise that they are too “sinful” to do so. This is yet another example of Shaytan (the devil) fooling people due to their lack of knowledge of Allah.
Another variation of the above statement is “Oh my dua (supplication) won’t be accepted.”
I was talking to an acquaintance of mine and she got something that she had wanted. The conversation proceeded as follows:
“It was thanks to your duas,” she says to me.
I was confused. MY duas??
“Erm, how do you know it was my duas? Perhaps it was YOUR duas?” I asked, puzzled.
“Oh please, it’s not my duas!” she scoffed.
She didn’t even believe that her duas would get answered and she thought this way because she considered herself very sinful.
This issue is very, very, very common. Shaytan defeats many people before they even begin.
