Some people say, 'we seek refuge in Allah and we still feel Satan coming to us and urging us to evil or preoccupying us while we are in the prayers.' The reply to this is that seeking refuge in Allah is like a sword that is in the hands of a warrior. If his arm is strong, he is able to penetrate and kill his enemy. If his arm is weak, he may leave no mark at all on his opponent, even if it is a very sharp sword. The same is the case with seeking refuge from satan. If one is pious and God-fearing, this invocation becomes like a fire that burns satan. If the person is of weak faith, one whose faith is mixed with evil, then this weapon hardly harms satan whatsoever."
from the world of the jinn and the devils by dr umar sulaiman al-ashqar, from the chapter "the weapons of the believer in his war against satan", p181
