Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
What is meant by Shaitan running in a man
There are three possible interpretations given by scholars on the aforementioned hadith;
- Shaitan has full control to deceive and allure humans to do evil things.
- Shaitan through many different ways and avenues stops a person to do good deals.
- 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)
