Secret talks are only inspired by Satan to grieve the believers. Yet he cannot harm them whatsoever except by Allah’s Will. So in Allah let the believers put their trust.
— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Private conversation is only from Satan that he may grieve those who have believed,1 but he will not harm them at all except by permission of Allah. And upon Allah let the believers rely.
