What is meant by Shaitan running in a man’s blood?



There are three possible interpretations given by scholars on the aforementioned hadith;

  1. Shaitan has full control to deceive and allure humans to do evil things.

  2. Shaitan through many different ways and avenues stops a person to do good deals.

  3. Shaitan runs in a man’s blood in such a way that it fills its brain and heart with evil thoughts. (Mazaahirul Haqq P.126 V.1)
