This Hadith is recorded in Sahih Muslim.



Every human is born with the natural features of Islam. His parents when turn him/her into a Jew, Christian or Fire worshipper. If they [the parents] are Muslim, then the child will be considered a Muslim.

When every child is born, Shaytan strikes him on his sides, besides Sayyidah Maryam and her son (Nabi ‘Isa)
