The Noble Scholar Shaykh Sulaymān Ar-Ruhaylī حفظه الله said:

The Shaytān has two ways he leads the people astray:

  1. (Evil) Desires and the origin goes back to the tongue and the private parts.
  2. Doubts (in the religion) which are connected to the heart.

The protection (from the evil desires and doubts in the religion) is Taqwā (fear of Allāh) and Knowledge (of the religion).
