Does Iblees sleep[?]'Devils R Always Around the Fortress=HEART![Hasan al-Basri~Ibn al-Jawzi]

'Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah' 

Rose Vine

'As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu '



Ibn al-Jawzi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said :-



Iblees tricks people in whatever way he can!


and his power over them

increases and decreases


~according to their

Alertness or Negligence,

their Ignorance or Knowledge!



Note that the heart is like a fortress,

and the devils are always going around the fortress watching for the guards to become heedless.



The guard should know all the gates of the

fortress which he has been appointed to guard,

 and he should not let his attention slip

 for a moment,

for the enemy never lets his attention slip.




A man asked al-Hasan al-Basri:

Does Iblees sleep? 

He said:-


 If he slept, we would have a Break!



Source:-Ibn al-Jawzi (may Allaah have mercy on him) in Talbees Iblees (p. 52):




Subhanak Allaahuma wa Bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha

 illa anta Astaghfiruka wa Atubu ilayk. 

 ...'SALAAMS' TO ALL...  



                                 Y a s m i n.                                      

  "All that is on earth will Perish. But will abide {Forever} 
 the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour"
 {'Quran'- Surah Al-Rahman-55.26-27 }

'Wasting time is Worse than Death!

Because Death Separates you from this World

 Whereas wasting Time Separates you from Allah'.

Ibn Qayimm Al-Jawziyyah.


I Want to Die With my Forehead on the Ground!
The Sunnah in my Heart, Allah on my Mind,
Qur'an on my Tongue, and Tears in my Eyes!

'Insha Allah'! 

' Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days, whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone.

 {Al-Hasan Al-Basree}
