Hadith Explanation

Overcome Your Devil

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The believer can seize the forelock of his devil as one of you seizes the forelock of his camel whilst traveling.” [Ahmad]

After quoting this hadith, Ibn Katheer said: “What is meant by seizing his forelock is defeating him and overwhelming him, as one does with a camel when it runs away, then you seize it and overpower it.”

Whoever is strong in his faith (Eeman) can defeat his Shaytaan and humiliate him. Strength of Eeman comes from humbling oneself before Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

Whoever sacrifices his will and desires before the Will of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) and enforces on himself the commands of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), is empowered and enriched by Him (subhana wa ta’ala) more than he could ever be empowered or enriched by the efforts of mankind.
