If we are to distinguish our friends from our enemies we need proper and authentic knowledge originating from Quran and the Sunnah. Our weapons are our knowledge, our skill is our faith and our strength is our courage and determination to succeed in this battle.
Allaah tabaarak ta wa ta’aala says:
In order to overpower us, Satan strives against us while opposing all that we put into the battle. For instance, to deprive us of knowledge he beautifies ignorance; to deprive us of faith, he beautifies disbelief; and to deprive us of our courage and determination, he beautifies cowardice, laziness and hopelessness.
