About this publication:

On the authority of Sabrah ibn Abee Faakih said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) saying:

“Indeed Shaytaan sits upon the pathways to Islaam and [with a question loaded with rejection he asks] "Will you embrace Islaam and leave the religion of your father and grandfathers?" The man disobeys [and opposes] him and embraces Islaam. Then he sits in the path of hijrah (migration) and [again a question of rejection], "Will you migrate and leave your land [in which you were born and lived in] and your sky [which you used as a means of protection for all of your life]? [Shaytaan continues his question taunting of discouragement] “A muhaajir [one who leaves the land of disbelief for the land of Islaam] is like a horse in a tether”. [But] the man [again] disobeys him and migrates. Then Shaytaan sits in the path to jihaad and says, "The struggle is with your life and wealth. If you fight you will be killed, your wives will re-marry and your wealth will be distributed." He disobeys him and goes out in jihaad. Whoever does that has a right upon Allaah that He admits him into Paradise. And whoever is killed has a right upon Allaah that He enters him into Paradise."
