The Was Wasa Of A Hundred Dollar Bill – Mufti Menk What is the was wasa? Was wasa as it sounds, you know, was was was was… You know, the shaitan comes and try and whisper things in your system. Allah says, “Fa was wasa lahumas shaitaanu.
” Shaitan definitely whispered in his own way, encouraging them to do what was prohibited by promising them false things. When something is prohibited, what happens to us? We look at it, and somehow it becomes beautify in the system if our iman is weak and somehow we think we are going to be achieving.
For example a person who sees money, that’s dangling out of somebody’s pocket and he is standing in a queue. If his iman is weak he’s going to start thinking, “Hey, is anyone watching?” Look around, right? If his iman is strong and insha Allah it would be the case with of all of us, and I pray that it is, even with those who might not have material wealth They would say, “Brother or Sister.
This thing is dangling from your pocket, make sure that you put it away safely. Someone might take it.” You have succeeded. But if your iman is weak, the a person says, “Is anyone watching?” “No.” Then we quickly just pick it.
You know, I remembered watching a little clip of a man who saw a ten-pound-note stuck under the motor vehicle’s tire in a parking. And he looked around and he saw, he tried it again, he tried it again, he couldn’t get it out without ripping it, so he decided, “Let me sit at the cafe that’s across the road.
” He went to sit at quite a busy cafe. And every time someone passed that little note, he looked at it. And he looked at them, and he had his, literally, his heart in his throat. Ha ha. Every time he thought someone was going to take it.
And a little while later, the owner of the vehicle comes, turn on the car and drive off. Guess what? Everybody in that cafe got up to go and get the note, subhanallah. They were all watching from the glass, there’s actually a clip, you might have seen it.
But this is the nature of a person whose iman is weak. If it wasn’t, come on, one of those things. Subhanallah. Be honest! So shaitan comes and says, “You are going to succeed, you’re gonna have a few dollars, you’re gonna an extra coke, you’re gonna go to Nando’s, perhaps you might want to go here or there? Subhanallah.
And you’ll enjoy a little bit. Wallahi, that joy is short lived. But shaitan promises you it’s going to be long.
