A Letter From Shaytan

November 4, 2005

kr’s note: A special thanks to Ishiwud
for her constructive editing on the meter of the poem and some of the
word choices. Eid Mubarak to everyone. May Allah accept whatever
prayers, fasts, good deeds, and supplications we’ve
made this past month.  I hope this post keeps things in
perspective, post-Ramadan, Inshallah.


So I got this email from, well, apparently Iblis himself… I had to edit some of what he wrote… but, well… read on.





Subject: Eid Mubarak kr!


Yo kr, what up son? How’s my favorite target—I mean, friend—doing?  I
see you’ve been pretty busy for a month being good and all. Whuptee
doo, so you managed to do a few fasts and do a few night prayers, eh?
You think you the man now, don’t you? All you believers, with your days
of mercy and days of forgiveness and days of freedom from the Fire.
Whuptee doo. You punks think you’ve undone what I’ve been doing to you
for years now? You bast–ds think you’re safe from me? Hahaha, you
actually did, didn’t you?


Listen punk, I will
bring you and all your little believing brothers and sisters down.
Laugh it up and enjoy. I didn’t waste my time last month. I plotted and
planned. I got some new tricks up my sleeve that I think you fools will
enjoy. I drafted some new personnel to help me out. Trust me sucka, I
will come at you and I will own you. You know you’re my favorite target
kr; it’s so easy to warm up on people like you and then move on to some
other stubborn people who can resist me more.


But listen, for old
times sake, and cause we’re pals, I wrote you a little poem. You’ll
find it below. Feel free to put it up on your little joke of a blog.


Alright, you ungrateful fu—s, I’m out, I better get to work.


Hatefully yours,



P.S. The funny thing is you idiots know how to stop me… but you don’t.



I hate you fools so much it hurts inside

Did you think for a second you worthy of His Paradise?

Lemme tell you—you know jack ‘bout servin’ the Divine

Remember – I was the one drunk on heavenly wine

But it was all taken from me in the blink of an eye–

And when He chose you over me, I freakin’ wanted to die

You straight duped, see, cause all I do’s deceive and invite

And so stupidly, all you do is wait just to bite

You did real good last month son, but now baby I’m back

With a mission clear-cut to make your good deeds worth jack

For a month I just waited, biding for time

Free at last, I’m elated to make your a$$ mine

I’m hungry as hell, wanting to just whisper unseen

Just to revel in the sight of you fools slippin from the deen

I hate you all, and don’t tell me that you can’t even see

The mere fact that you exist disgusts the hell outta me

From day one, when I scoffed, and couldn’t even bow

So now I’m in this wretched state that I’m leadin’ right now.

I want nothin’ but you suckas straight sharin’ my pain

And nothing but seein your good go straight down the drain

And now the month’s over, son, you’s but a sittin’ ol’ duck

You think I care bout you fallin’?—You think I give a f—k?

Man I’m lovin that you worshippin’ a month—Ramadan

Cause now the time’s jus right for me to get my game on.



I hope you cap all yo’ prayer and forsake yo’ Qur’an

Cause you strapped wit dem weapons, those are your bombs

And I pray you don’t smile when you meet one another

Or go out of your way to honor your brother

And I yearn that you argue bout your damn fiqh issues

So I can mislead you real easy like I did to dem Jews

I wish you won’t drop down some cash to the miskeen

Yo homes, sit on yo’ wallet and forget dem yateem

I hope you don’t fill yo’ selves with pure samâhah

Instead, fill yo’ selves with ghil, bughd, and khiyânah.

Get tipsy on bukhl, ghadab, and of course batar

Get wasted on ghish, ghaflah and sakht al-qadr

I fear you’ll heed the words of your umm and abi–

I fear above all that you’ll love your Nabi:

I cringe when I think that if your hearts were filled

All my efforts and dreams would be quickly killed.

Damn, if you knew just what that love would spawn

 I’d have no hope, O ye who claim imân


Aight foo’, I’m out, there’s sh– to be done

You just sit there, laugh, and keep havin fun’

So eat, drink and bask in all your goddamn riches

But realize fast that I’m back, bit—es.





**A note about the
profanity: consider the viewpoint of Iblîs, just coming out of prison,
fuming mad (no pun intended), full of hatred towards mankind,
especially the Muslims who have re-connected to their Lord during
Ramadan… ole boy’s super pissed. There’s more to this, but this is a
sufficient explanation.


Yateem – orphans

Miskeen—needy, destitute folk

Samaahah — tolerance, magnanimity, overlooking the deficiences of others.

Ghil – rancor, extreme anger, malice towards another person

Bughd – hatred or extreme dislike for a person, especially with no particular reason

Khiyânah – stealthy, treacherous, deceptive looks of the eyes towards others

Bukhl – miserliness

Ghadab – intense anger/wrath

Batar – wantonness,
unbridled desire to want and desire more, inability to bear blessings,
reckless extravagance, excessive mirth and exuberance.

Ghish – fraud, deception


Sakht al-Qadr – displeasure in the Divine Decree


Nabi – The Prophet Muhammad (salallahu `alayhi wa sallam)

    Iblis talks like a kallu??
    As for the inappropriate language, it seems very similar to how many of the Muslim brothers speak nowadays. (It’s obviously wrong, nonetheless.)

  18. So eat, drink and bask in all your goddamn riches
    But realize fast that I’m back, bit—es.
    yesss! yesss! the last two lines really gave it that punch and made your whole point clear as a bell. best two lines of the whole poem! very clever idea, you did good bhai

    i never pictured Shaytaan as speaking gangsta’…
    he’s a bigger loser than i thought he was.

  31. asalamu alaikum kr…. Iblis sounds like a rap artist.  I wonder if that suggests something. I was just making an observation though.  Thanks for the warning..they should put that on cereal boxes, minus the profanities. Clever clever.
