Supporting the Distressed Against the Tricks of Satan is an abridged English translation of the monumental work Ighathatu al-Lahfan Fee Masayid al-Shaytaan (إغاثة اللهفان في مصائد الشيطان), which is one of the best and most important books of Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim (r).
The author reveals the tricks and intrigues of Shaytaan and sets out the causes and ways to protect ourselves from the sneaky enemy. He discusses types of hearts, their diseases and their cures.
Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim states:
The enemy of Allah, the devil, knew that the heart held the central position on which everything depended; so, he endeavoured to fill it with all sorts of whispers and vain desires with the intention of diverting it from the right path. He surrounded it with sources of misguidance and set devices and nets to trap it. To get out of his tricks is not possible except by seeking the help of Allah, sticking to the causes of His pleasure and acquiring the humility of servitude, which is the best weapon a man can have to enjoy the protection of Allah.
