"Verily You are Cursing One

 who is Already Cursed"




As salaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh.........


The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: "None of you should say: "May Shaytaan perish," for if you say that, he will swell so much so that he will be like a house and he will say, "By my power I have vanquished him." But say, "In the Name of Allaah (Bismillaah)," for when you say that, he will diminish so that he will be like a fly."


{Abu Daawood & Ahmad}


In another hadeeth: Verily, when the slave curses Shaytaan, he says: "Verily you are cursing one who is already cursed."


Similar to this is the saying: "May Allaah humiliate Shaytaan," and "May Allaah disgrace Shaytaan," for all of these things make him happy and he says, "The son of Aadam knows that I have defeated him by my power." This lends support to him in his misguidance, this is why the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) advised a person who is touched by something from Shaytaan to mention Allaah and to recite His Name and seek refuge with Him from Shaytaan, for that is more beneficial for him and more exasperating for Shaytaan.


He (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) also prohibited that a person should say: "Khubuthat nafsee" (I have become wicked), and that he should say instead: "Lasiqat nafsee" (I am annoyed). Their meaning is one, that is: My soul has become sickened and it has become straightened. The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) disliked for them to use the verb "Khubutha" due to the meanings of wickedness and disgracefulness which it connotes.
