And also..How does Satan affect people?
Verse from The Noble Qur'an
وَاسْتَفْزِزْ مَنِ اسْتَطَعْتَ مِنْهُمْ بِصَوْتِكَ وَأَجْلِبْ عَلَيْهِم بِخَيْلِكَ وَرَجِلِكَ وَشَارِكْهُمْ فِي الأَمْوَالِ وَالأَوْلادِ وَعِدْهُمْ وَمَا يَعِدُهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ إِلاَّ غُرُورًا
64. And befool and agitate humans with your voice and make assaults on them with your imagination and influence. And share with them the growth of their money and children (i.e. share with them the parenting of their children) and make promises to them. And Satan promises nothing but lies and deceit.
The Noble Qur'an (17: 64)
It is known from the study of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings of Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him that every human has the following:
1. The voice of oneself: The voice you speak with which is referred to as the voice of oneself. This voice has a characteristic frequency that distinguishes it from the voices of other people. And when a person thinks quietly he or she hears this voice in his or her head (i.e. the same voice the person speaks with). This is called the voice of oneself which is the voice you speak and think with.
2. A companion Devil: It is also known from Islamic teachings that a companion devil is assigned to each and every human at birth. This devil strives to mislead and to cause pain to the person he is assigned to. The purpose of assigning such a companion devil is a test from the creator to people, to see whether under all these temptations a person will turn back to his creator and follow his commandments or not. However, the manner by which this companion devil affects the person he is assigned to is largely unknown and this topic will Allah (God) willing explain that in details.
The manner by which the companion devil (Satan) affects humans can be known fully from the Noble Qur’an by thinking and reflecting upon the Qur’anic verse shown on the left. Where Allah (God) Almighty states that the companion devil (Satan) whispers to humans with His voice but at the same time He hides from them.
The manner by which the companion devil camouflages himself and the only way he can whisper to you thoughts and hide from you is if he matches his voice to your own voice (i.e. the voice you think to yourself with).
Thus the camouflaging of Satan is done by Satan matching the tone, pitch, and style of His voice with the tone, pitch, and style of your voice (The one you think with) to make you think that the ideas you are hearing in your head are your own and that you are thinking to yourself with them. So when a distributing thought comes to you and you hear it in your head, you think that yourself is telling you this but in fact it is your companion devil telling you these thoughts in order to cause you agitation and pain.
