فَوَسْوَسَ لَهُمَا الشَّيْطٰنُ لِيُبْدِيَ لَهُمَا مَا وٗرِيَ عَنْهُمَا مِنْ سَوْاٰتِهِمَا وَقَالَ مَا نَهٰىكُمَا رَبُّكُمَا عَنْ هٰذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ اِلَّآ اَنْ تَكُوْنَا مَلَكَيْنِ اَوْ تَكُوْنَا مِنَ الْخٰلِدِيْنَ


The first placement of the word فَوَسْوَسَ is in Chapter # 07 , Verse # 20 in which Allah Subhan O Talah first explain the outcome of the فَوَسْوَسَ .Once فَوَسْوَسَ conquer you what it will do with you. It will lead you to nakedness and nudity. Allah Subhan O Talah acute Aayat formation unveils the intension of Satan.Later He explained the argument built by Satan that why you both should eat this forbidden tree. “Then Satan tempted them in order to expose what was hidden of their nakedness. He said, “Your Lord has forbidden this tree to you only to prevent you from becoming angels or immortals.”

The first outcome of فَوَسْوَسَ is Nudity and the latter results are the transformation into angles or immortals.

فَوَسْوَسَ اِلَيْهِ الشَّيْطٰنُ قَالَ يٰٓاٰدَمُ هَلْ اَدُلُّكَ عَلٰي شَجَرَةِ الْخُلْدِ وَمُلْكٍ لَّا يَبْلٰى

The second placement of فَوَسْوَسَ is in Chapter # 20 , Verse # 120 in which Allah Subhan O Talah mentioned only Adam(A.S).A question pop up in my mind why only Adam no Eve in this Aayat . As we are well aware that both were allowed to stay in Jannah(Heaven). So same question was asked to my great teacher Professor Ahmed Rafique Akhtar and his response was ,”Eve is basically part of Adam” so that could be a reason that Allah only mention Adam in this Aayat. What Satan said to Adam , “But Satan whispered to him, saying, “O Adam! Shall I show you the Tree of Immortality and a kingdom that does not fade away?””

Once again Satan presents you فَوَسْوَسَ in a way to encourage you with a reward of dominance and Immortality.

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْاِنْسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهٖ نَفْسُهٗ ښ وَنَحْنُ اَقْرَبُ اِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيْدِ

The third placement of تُوَسْوِسُ is in Chapter 50 , Verse # 16 .Now Allah Subhan O Talah declares His authority that we know about all your temptation. How Satan attack you , what all he has to offer . How we know because ” Indeed, [it is] We [Who] created humankind and [fully] know what their souls whisper to them, and We are closer to them than [their] jugular vein.

Allah Subhan O Talah magnifying his authority .(اَلَا يَعْلَمُ مَنْ خَلَقَ ۭ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيْفُ الْخَبِيْرُ)How could He not know His Own creation? For He [alone] is the Most Subtle, All-Aware.(Verse 14, Chapter 67)

مِنْ شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ ڏ الْخَنَّاسِ

الَّذِيْ يُوَسْوِسُ فِيْ صُدُوْرِ النَّاسِ

The fourth and fifth placement is in Chapter # 114 , Verse # 04 & 05 .So we know that الْوَسْوَاسِ is basically whisper . To understand better I search the meaning of الْخَنَّاسِ . I found a word اخينوس meaning echinops . When I googled the word echinops . Famous National Geographic Filmmaker Greg Krehel captures 15 varieties of stunning Echinopsis cactus flowers blooming. The blooming process happens overnight, and the flowers last for only a day, with a peak period occurring for a mere hour or two. Peak period of our فَوَسْوَسَ is also hour or two. The summit of فَوَسْوَسَ is heart صُدُوْرِ not mind .


We should know that the primary outcome of فَوَسْوَسَ is Nakedness, Nudity, Vulgarity and disruption. Meditate, you will know well your personality’s loopholes. To overcome such loopholes train your mind to disrupt the native thoughts. Conditioned yourself in advance that how you will respond in a certain situation. The latest research in the mind sciences reveals that if you constantly interrupt your negative thoughts for at least 66 days, you will be able to instigate positivity and new neurological behavior.
