dalam kisah imam ahmad pula, ketika beliau nazak, beliau 'meracau' "no not yet no not yet". bila beliau kembali sedar, anaknya bertanya, kenapa beliau mengulang-ulang "no not yet". jawab imam ahmad, "syaitan was standing right next to me, biting on his fingers and saying “o ahmad you have slipped out of my hands,”. so i was telling him “no not yet until i die. the battle between me n u is still happening. not until i die, will i be saved from u."
look at the believer, how he keeps on fighting until the last moment, will never give up.we are proud and we would say, “yes i won against you” but imam ahmad said “not until i die.”
imam ibn taimiyyah, he says the reason why this happens, is because syaitaan realizes, that this is his last chance with you.if he misses it, you’re gone. that is why syaitaan emphasizes and gives special attention to the last moments of your life.
so put a criteria to yourself, and think about it, if you are losing to syaitaan now, when the battle is easy, what would happen to you in the last moment when it gets tough?if you are already losing the battle now, when syaitaan is giving you half of his attention, what will happen when he gives u his complete attention, when he devotes his efforts for u?-the herefafter
