Even that emptiness itself was created for a purpose: To drive us to fill it. The problem is we try to fill it with the wrong things. Everything inside us was created to enable our journey to find the true fill, to find Him. Ironically even shaytan and the nafs – if reacted to correctly – can become a means to reach Him. Shaytan and nafs are our enemies. True. But how can we protect ourselves from them? Can the people help? Can money help? Can worldly power or weapons help protect us from our greatest enemies? Where is the *only* shelter from both Shaytan and our nafs? The only shelter is in Allah. It is like sending a storm to push us to the only refuge. To push us to Him (azza wa jal).
