Seeking Allah's protection from Satan while reading the Qur'an
The Qur'an is the divine book revealed by Allah to guide mankind. However, while it helps increase the faith of the believers, it discloses the denial of the unbelievers.
"he it is who has sent down to thee the book: in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "we believe in the book; the whole of it is from our lord:" and none will grasp the message except men of understanding."(Al-e-Imran 7)
That means that some verses of the Qur'an has the feature to reveal the transgress of "those in whose hearts is perversity ", whilst the faith and submission of the believers increase with the same verses.
It also should be noted that no one can guarantee that it will continue to increase their faith. Believers may also lose the Qur'anic point of view with the effect of Satan's temptations. And naturally he would not perceive the wisdom in the Qur'an when he reads the Qur'an with that point of view. That's why, Allah commands to seek refuge in him from the effects of Satan before reading the Qur'an "when thou dost read the Qur'an, seek Allah's protection from Satan the rejected one."(An-nahl 98)
this is important by means of reminding the presence of Satan and his activities. Satan is indeed always on work, trying to assault people from before and behind, from their right and their left. he lies in wait for people on Allah's straight way. The activities and strategy of the Satan has been explained in many verses of the Qur'an. Thus, the salvation from the deceits of Satan can only be possible through the Qur'an, which teaches us the tricks and the ways to avoid them. As expressed in the 22nd verse of Ibrahim, "the Satan had no authority over the believers". The key is to accept the Qur'an as the only guide and to read it after seeking refuge in Allah from the rejected Satan.
