Barsisa – The Worshiper
Barsisa, a monk worshipped Allah Alone for 60 years. Satan tried hard to seduce him, but could not. He went to a woman and touched her with evil (maddened her). The woman had brothers who were visited by Satan who told them to take her to that monk to receive treatment and cure.
They took her to the monk and he treated her. Afterwards, she stayed for a while at his cell (house). One day, he was attracted to her and he committed adultery with her.
She got pregnant and he killed her (to conceal his first crime). Her brothers came (after knowing the matter) and Satan appeared again for the monk and said: “I am your friend, I did not find a solution or way to mislead you, but (finally) I set you up. So, obey me and I will save you from this. Prostrate yourself before me and you will be saved.” The monk did so. Then, Satan said:
“…I am free of you, I fear Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!” (Qur’an, 59:16)
Ibn Katheer mentions the above in the explanation of the verses:
“(Their allies deceived them) like Shaitan (Satan), when he says to man: “Disbelieve in Allah.” But when (man) disbelieves in Allah, Shaitan (Satan) says: “I am free of you, I fear Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!”
So the end of both will be that they will be in the Fire, abiding therein. Such is the recompense of the Zalimun (i.e. polytheists, wrong-doers, disbelievers in Allah and in His Oneness, etc.).” (Qur’an, 59:16,17)
