Hadith Explanation


Urine of Shaytaan is Laziness


“Mention was made in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) of a man who slept a whole night until morning. He said, ‘That is a man in whose ear the Shaytaan has urinated.’” [Bukhaari]

Imaam Ibn al-Jawzi, quoting one of the Salaf, said: “I warn you against ‘Sawfa’ (i.e. saying ‘I will do…’) because it is one of the greatest troops of Iblees. The likeness of the one who strives resolutely and the one who is content with the idea that he has plenty of time is that of a group of people who are on a journey and enter a town. The one who is resolute goes and buys the supplies he needs to complete his journey and sits ready to resume his journey. The negligent one says, ‘I will get ready, but probably we will stay here for a month (so I have plenty of time).’ So when the call to resume the journey comes, the one who was prepared is happy to move on, whilst the one who was negligent becomes very confused and distressed.

“This is the likeness of people in this world. Some of them are prepared and alert, and when the angel of death comes they feel no regret, but the others who are deluded and procrastinate, will feel bitter regret at the time of departure. If it is in a person’s nature to like to procrastinate and feel that he has plenty of time, then Iblees comes and encourages that person to act in accordance with his nature, so it becomes difficult for him to strive. But the person who is concerned about himself knows that he is in a battlefield and that his enemy will not give up. Although he may appear to be leaving him alone for a while, in secret he is plotting against him and setting a trap for him.” [Talbees Iblees]
