But their brothers – the devils increase them in error

Question: O Allah send your Blessings on Muhammad and his progeny, the Imams and the Mahdis.
Peace be upon you O my father Ahmed. May the Prayers of The Lord be upon you and your forefathers the Imams and your sons the Mahdis.
My master, how do you explain these Ayateen (two verses):

{Indeed, those who fear Allah – when an impulse touches them from Satan, they remember [Him] and at once they have insight.}
{But their brothers – the devils increase them in error; then they do not stop short.}

{The Holy Quran Surah Al-‘A ‘raf:201 & 202}

Answer: In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful,
May the Blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis.

The Almighty said:

{Take what is given freely, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.}
{And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah . Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.}
{Indeed, those who fear Allah – when an impulse touches them from Satan, they remember [Him] and at once they have insight.}
{But their brothers – the devils increase them in error; then they do not stop short.}

{The Holy Quran Surah Al-‘A ‘raf:199- 202}

Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty , ordered the Prophet, Peace be upon him and his progeny, to turn away (ignore) from those who are ignorant and foolish and not argue with them. For they do not focus on the truth, rather they stubbornly persist their ignorance when discussing. Then the Devils (their brothers) provoke them and push them to advance more and more into the depths of this confrontation, resulting in loss. Verily, ignorance and the Devils brothers are gathered together in the darkness.

And the Almighty said:

{And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah . Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.}
{Indeed, those who fear Allah – when an impulse touches them from Satan, they remember [Him] and at once they have insight.}

{The Holy Quran Surah Al-‘A ‘raf:200 & 201}

The believer is Light created from Light, and the Devils are darkness created from darkness. Therefore, if the believer is touched by the darkness he enters into a state of bewilderment, thus troubling his insight.

{And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan……………………… when an impulse touches them from Satan}

Escape to the Light of the Most Merciful, and seek refuge in His Light from the darkness which, if touched, enters within the light and affects it. Thus, it [remembrance] dispels the darkness which affected his insight and returns it to him.

{then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing………………………. They remember [Him] and at once they have insight.}

As we enter into this worldly life, the process of the phases touch us with the darkness and the Devils. But the Believers remember and return to their principle of Light with which they were created from.

{Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah . Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.} {The Holy Quran Surah Ae-Ra ‘d:28}
