2) I am constantly disturbed by the whisperings of Shaitan. How can I control this?
2) The cure of whisperings of Shaitan is simply to ignore them. Whenever you get whisperings (waswasa) of Shaitan, think about the power and might of Allah i.e. think about how Allah Ta’ala made the hearts and mind of people such that they contain endless and limitless streams of thought. When Shaitan sees that the whisperings are having the opposite effect on you – i.e. instead of the whisperings driving you away from Allah, they are helping you to come closer to Allah by making you to ponder over His power and might – he will himself stop the whisperings.
Also, whenever you get whisperings, make yourself appear tremendously happy in every way. When Shaitan sees that instead of the whisperings making you sad (that’s what he wants), they are making you happy, he will himself stop the whispering — as he doesn’t want people to be happy. And since Shaitan does not have knowledge of the unseen, he will not know that you are faking happiness.
