They attempt to lead us astray throughout life. It is a challenge for us to be conscious of their presence and not do what they say. By doing good deeds and suppressing bad thoughts we can weaken the ill effects of our individual shaythaan. Satan provides a constant presence so that we humans may choose to ignore his bad advice and follow Allah’s command.
The Shaythaan of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) converted to Islam. The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) once told his companions:
“Every one of you has been assigned a companion from the Jinn.” They asked:
“Even you, O Messenger of Allah (pbuh)!” He replied: “Even me, except that Allah has helped me against him and he has submitted. Now he only tells me to do good.” [Saheeh Muslim]
Hamzaad (Qareen ) is the demon permanently assigned to each person during his/her life whose job is to seduce human beings.
Allah Almighty says: “His Companion will say: “Our Lord! I did not make him transgress, but he was (himself) far astray.” (The Holy Qur’an 50:27) i.e. the devil assigned to seduce him will say: “My lord! It was not me who seduced him at the beginning, but it was he himself who preferred blindness to guidance. So, I helped him achieve his goal through seduction.” If anyone withdraws himself from remembrance of (Allah) Most Gracious We appoint for him an evil one to be an intimate companion to him. Such (evil ones) really hinder them from the Path but they think that they are being guided aright!
At length when (such a one) comes to Us he says (to his evil companion): “Would that between me and thee were the distance of East and West!” Ah! Evil is the companion (indeed)! (The Holy Quran 43:36-38)
In a hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) tells us that a demon is assigned to every human being: “There is no one among you but a comrade from among the jinn is assigned to him.” Sahaba e Karam (RA) present in that occasion asked: “Even you, O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “Even me, but Allah granted me victory over him and he became Muslim (or: and I am safe from him), so he only enjoins me to do that which is good.”
