Question

 عن أبي هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إن كيد النساء أعظم من كيد الشيطان لأن الله تعالى يقول: إن كيد الشيطان كان ضعيفا وقال: إن كيدكن عظيم

 

Answer

‘Allamah Qurtubi (rahimahullah) has cited this narration with a partial chain. I have not come across this narration in any other Primary source.

(Tafsir Qurtubi, Surah, Yusuf, Verse: 28, vol. 11 pg. 324)

 

The part of the chain which is mentioned contains an omission and a very weak narrator.

(Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 4 pg. 375, number: 8246)

 

Translation

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The deception/conspiracies of women is greater than the deception of Shaytan, for Allah Ta’ala says, ‘The scheme of Shaytan is weak’ (Surah Nisa, Verse: 76) and [regarding the woman who tried to seduce Yusuf ‘alayhis salam, Quran says:] ‘Your scheming is indeed serious/dangerous’ (Surah Yusuf, Verse: 28).’”

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
