4 Plots of Shaytaan

  1. Kufr, Shirk or Enmity towards Allah
    The places of worship belong to Allah (alone), so do not make duaa to anyone alongside Allah. (Surah Jinn 72:18)
  2. Bid‛ah (Innovation)
    Beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for verily every bidah (innovation) is misguidance.” (Abu Dawud)
  3. Al-Kaba’ir (Major Sins)
    Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Surah Zumar: 39:53)
  4. Al-Sagha’ir (Minor Sins)
    “People’s deeds are presented before Allah on Mondays and Thursdays, and then every slave is granted forgiveness (of minor sins) if he does not associate anything with Allah in worship. (Muslim)
