I am looking for the reference for the following Hadith:
“Shaytan flows in the veins like how blood flows in the body.”
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said this to a Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) when he was walking with one of his wives, to remove any doubt.
This Hadith is recorded in Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2035, and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 5642.
This means that Shaytan is always with a man like his blood always flows within him. Therefore man should be wary of Shaytan’s influences at all times.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
