So I finally watched The Dark Knight and i thought it was very good. One thing that I noticed at the end of the movie was that the Joker, played by Heath Ledger who was recently visited by the Angel of Death (Malik-ul-Mawt), reminded me of how hard the Devil (Shaytan) tries to corrupt people. The Joker throughout the movie was trying to corrupt Batman and turning him evil. He didn’t want Batman to die, he just wanted him to become evil like him. He was the only criminal that wasn’t in it for the money. He wasn’t it for the power either. He was a “religious” criminal. His entire aim and goal was to corrupt people into following the path of evil.
This is exactly what the Devil is trying to do with us. The Devil is so devoted to the cause of evil that he prays to God (Allah) for the misguidance of humanity. He is not concerned with how much money you have or how much power you have. He just wants you to stray from true way of life (Islam) and become misguided.
So as true believers (Muslims) we need to become like Batman and stay strong fighting off the evil whispers of the Devil and struggle in the path of God to bring justice and peace (Jihad).
