Know Your Enemy V (Ahadith 2907 – 2915)

Bismillah.

Chapter: The characteristics of Iblis (Satan) and his soldiers

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 508 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “While the angels talk amidst the clouds about things that are going to happen on earth, the devils hear a word of what they say and pour it in the ears of a soothsayer as one pours something in a bottle, and they add one hundred lies to that (one word).”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 509 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Yawning is from Satan and if anyone of you yawns, he should check his yawning as much as possible, for if anyone of you (during the act of yawning) should say: ‘Ha’, Satan will laugh at him.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 510 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)
On the day (of the battle) of Uhud when the pagans were defeated, Satan shouted, “O slaves of Allah! Beware of the forces at your back,” and on that the Muslims of the front files fought with the Muslims of the back files (thinking they were pagans). Hudhaifa (radiallaahu `anhu) looked back to see his father, Al-Yaman (being attacked by the Muslims). He shouted, “O Allah’s Slaves! My father! My father!” By Allah, they did not stop till they killed him. Hudhaifa said, “May Allah forgive you.” ‘Urwa said that Hudhaifa continued to do good (invoking Allah to forgive the killer of his father till he met Allah (i.e. died).

That is the pinnacle of good character. We claim to be good Muslims and followers of the Sunnah but do we really imitate the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and his Companions, also known as the best of generations, when it comes to dealing with others? Being kind to people who are kind to you is very easy. Being kind to someone who wrongs you.. not so easy. When it comes to being kind to a person (very much Muslim – probably better than you) who does something awful to your family (murdering your parent, let’s say).. wait, is that even an option?! Hudhaifa (radiallaahu `anhu) was above and beyond kind for the killer of his father. He understood that it was a mistake that happened amidst all the confusion so he prays for his forgiveness. It is said that he didn’t accept the blood money either. And the best part: he never says anything but good about that person till the day he dies. That, my friends, is true forgiveness. May Allah help us reach such merits in our characters.

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 511 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)
I asked the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) about one’s looking here and there during the prayer. He replied, “It is what Satan steals from the prayer of any one of you.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 512 :
Narrated by Abu Qatada (radiallaahu `anhu)
As below (i.e. Hadith No. 513)

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 513 :
Narrated by Abu Qatada (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “A good dream is from Allah, and a bad or evil dream is from Satan; so if anyone of you has a bad dream of which he gets afraid, he should spit on his left side and should seek Refuge with Allah from its evil, for then it will not harm him.”

Also, don’t discuss bad dreams with others.

It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri that he heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say:

“If any one of you sees a dream that he likes, it is from Allaah, so let him praise Allaah for it and tell people about it. But if he sees something other than that, that he dislikes, it is from the Shaytaan, so let him seek refuge with Allaah from its evil and not mention it to anyone, for it will not harm him.”  (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 7045)

It was reported that Abu Hurayrah said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

‘If any one of you sees something that he dislikes (in a dream), let him get up and pray, and not tell people about it.’” (Narrated by Muslim, 2263)

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 514 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “If one says one-hundred times in one day: “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Alone Who has no partners, to Him belongs Dominion and to Him belong all the Praises, and He has power over all things (i.e. Omnipotent)”, one will get the reward of manumitting ten slaves, and one-hundred good deeds will be written in his account, and one-hundred bad deeds will be wiped off or erased from his account, and on that day he will be protected from the morning till evening from Satan, and nobody will be superior to him except one who has done more than that which he has done.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 515 :
Narrated by Sad bin Abi Waqqas (radiallaahu `anhu)
Once Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) asked the leave to see Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) in whose company there were some Quraishi women who were talking to him and asking him for more financial support raising their voices. When ‘Umar asked permission to enter the women got up (quickly) hurrying to screen themselves. When Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) admitted ‘Umar, Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was smiling, ‘Umar asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! May Allah keep you gay always.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “I am astonished at these women who were with me. As soon as they heard your voice, they hastened to screen themselves.” ‘Umar said, “O Allah’s Apostle! You have more right to be feared by them.” Then he addressed (those women) saying, “O enemies of your own souls! Do you fear me and not Allah’s Apostle ?” They replied. “Yes, for you are a fearful and fierce man as compared with Allah’s Apostle.” On that Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said (to ‘Umar), “By Him in Whose Hands my life is, whenever Satan sees you taking a path, he follows a path other than yours.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 516 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “If anyone of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night.”

Doing wudu takes care of that, but a menstruating woman will have to wash the nose outside of wudu to get rid of Shaytan.

The chapter of Iblees’ characteristics and soldiers ends here, and hence the series “Know Your Enemy”.
