Explained: "satan Lost All Hopes That The Worshippers Would Ever Worship Him ..."

2 posts in this topic

Contextual Information:

Allah (subhana wa talah) states, Jews took their Rabbanical priests as Lords against Allah (subhana wa ta'ala):

Surah At'Tawbah {9} Verse 31: "They take their {Christian} priests and their {Jewish} Rabbaniyah to be their Lords against Allah, and Christ the son of Mary; yet they were commanded to worship none but One Allah. there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him: (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)."

The classical commentators of Quran have explained the Jews taking their Rabbis as Lords is in meaning of Jewish obedience of Rabbis with regards to the Halal which their Rabbis declared Haram, and Haram which the Rabbis declared Halal:

Tafsir al-Jalalayn: "They have taken their rabbis, the scholars among the Jews, and their monks, the devout among the Christians, as lords beside God — following them in making lawful what God has made unlawful and making unlawful what He has made lawful — and the Messiah, son of Mary, when they were not commanded, in the Torah and the Gospel, except to worship One God: there is no god except Him; glory be to Him, as an affirmation of His transcendence [high], above what they associate [with Him]."

Tafsir Ibn Abbas: "(They have taken as lords beside Allah) i.e. they obeyed them in acts of disobedience (their rabbis) the men of knowledge among the Jews (and their monks) who reside in monasteries (and the Messiah son of Mary) and they have taken the Messiah son of Mary as lord, (when they were bidden) in all Scriptures (to worship) to confess the divine Oneness of (only One God. There is no god save Him. Be He glorified from all that they ascribe as partner!) Allah exalts Himself above all that which they ascribe to Him."

- It is also recorded in Musnad Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal, Tirmadhi Shareef, Prophet Muhammed explained the meaning of: "They take their (Christian) priests and their (Jewish) Rabbaniyah to be their Lords against Allah, ..." because the Rabbis declared the haram {forbiden} as halal {permissable}, and halal as haram, and the Yahood and Nasara obeyed them, where as the right to declare something as halal, haram is of Allah the Lord of Alameen. By obeying the Priests and Rabbis, they in reality were elivating them to status of Lords against Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and anyone who is elivated to the status of Lord and then is respected, honoured, adored, and loved is being worshipped, and yet Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) had told them:"... yet they were commanded to worship none but One Allah."

From this we gather what Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) had declared Haram and Halal, if anyone other then Him and His Messenger was to change it, and we obeyed them, we then would be guilty of taking that individual as Lord in partneship with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala).

In Shari'ah, thumb rule is any respect, honouring, love, shown to a X after a attribute, or right of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has been confered to the X it will amount to Ibadah {worship} even if there is no phisical sign of worship as in ruku, sajood, qayam etc. And obedience to that lord, and in disobedience to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on haram, halal matters which are determined by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in every case is result of respect of a religious authority, and such respect of person elivated to status of Lord in Sharia is defined as worship.

Please bare the above in mind to properly understand the article.

Shaytan Has Given Up Hopes:

Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states in Quran:

Surah Ya Seen {36} Verse 60: “Did I not command you O children of A'dam, that you should not worship the Devil. Verily, he is a plain enemy to you.”

Children of Adam (alayhis salam) should not worship shaytaan, note the words: "O children of Adam, ..." indicate that Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is reffering to every single human being, including Prophet's (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) Ummati's and verse 61 states, shaytan lead many people astray i.e. made them worship him. As a precaution Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam), and to ensure that his Ummati's do not accuse each other of Shirk he revealed the fact:

Sahih Muslim, Book 39, Hadith 6752: "Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship him in the peninsula of Arabia, but he (is hopeful) that he would sow the seed of dissension amongst them."

It is apparent that Ummah of RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) will be free from worship of Shaytaan.

Tafsir 36:60 - Obeying Shaytaan:

Tafsir Ibn Kaseer:"(Did I not command you, O Children of Adam, that you should not worship Shaytan Verily, he is a plain enemy to you.) This is a rebuke from Allah to the disbelievers among the sons of Adam, those who obey the Shaytan even though he was a plain enemy to them, and they disobeyed Ar-Rahman Who created them and granted them provision."

Tafsir Jalalayn: "Did I not charge you, command you, O children of Adam, by the tongues of My messengers, that you should not worship Satan, [that you should] not obey him; truly he is a manifest enemy to you, one whose enmity is evident, ..."

Tafsir Ibn Abbas: "He will also say to them: (Did I not charge you) did I not present to you, in the Scripture brought by the Messenger, (O ye sons of Adam, that ye worship not the devil) that you should not obey the devil. (Lo! he is your open foe) whose enmity is quite manifest!"

The Mufassireen of Quran have explained that, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has prohibited obedience to Shaytaan, in other words the worship of Shaytan is in obedience to him, and disobedience to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala).

Right to declare something as haram or halal is of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) alone and whom he confers it (i.e. RasoolAllah sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). Therefore if shaytan was to excercise this right, i.e. declare something haram which Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) delcared as halal, and we obeyed him in obedience to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), we will be elivating Shaytan to status of Lord {Rabb}, and obeying someone in disobedience to another is form of honouring, respect, love, hence that disobedience becomes worship when Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is disobeyed in and shaytaan inspired individual is obeyed.

Worship Of Shaytaan - Hadith Explained:

Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) foretold in Sahih Hadith:

Sahih Muslim, Book 39, Hadith 6752: "Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship him in the peninsula of Arabia, but he (is hopeful) that he would sow the seed of dissension amongst them."

Yahood, Nasara raised their Rabbis, and Monks to the status of Lords besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), because these Monks, Rabbis declared haram as halal, and halal as haram and the Yahood and Nasara obeyed them leaving Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) judgement. And the respect, love, honouring of these people in authority (i.e. monks, rabbis) was declared to be their worship.

In the same manner Shaytan and people under his influence if they were to declare haram as halal or halal as haram it would mean those people under the influence of shaytaan as well as shaytan have taken the right of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and attributed to them selves, and if people were to beleive in what they declare as haram but Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) had declared it halal, then those people would be taking Shaytaan and the people under his influenc as Lords besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala).

Therefore in the meaning of: "Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship him in the peninsula of Arabia ..." is Shaytaan has failed in his attempts to declare the halal as haram, and haram as halal, his hopes of being taken as Lord against Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and obeyed instead of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) have been dashed.

Conclusion:

Part One:

- Ummah as whole has refused to obey the individuals who under the influence of Shaytan have declared haram as halal and halal as haram, and Ummah has whole have refused to honour, respect, love, such individuals.[1] Therefore the natural conclusion is that Ummah as whole has not worshipped ghairullah including Shaytaan, but only worship Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) has certified that Arabian peninsula as whole, as well as for vast majority of the time from dawn of Islam till blowing of the musky wind will be free from acts of Shirk (i.e. worshiping of scholars, saints) and free from shaytan and his clans-men being taken Lords besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), free from shaytaan being obeyed in matters of haram and halal, meaning his Ummah in Arabian peninsula will not give shaytaan or anyone else the attributes, and rights of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala).

Therefore those accuse Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat of worshipping graves, tombs, are liars and falsifiers of Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alayhi was'salam). They have disbelieved in RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) and instead have surrendered to wispers of Shaytaan who has incited them to raise their voice over the voice of Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). They in obedience to Shaytaan the cursed have thrown the clear teachings, the teachings which Jibraeel (alayhis salam) bought from Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) the guidance of beloved Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) behind their backs, and have preffered for them selves their own understandings.[2]

 

Part Two:- The readers should take note of the fact that Wahabi'ism originated in 17th century, in the begning its fallowers plundered cities, and robbed the pilgrims who travled for Hajj to Hijaaz Maqdis. It was in 1930 Saudi Arabia was finally conquered by Wahabi's with the support of long time allies, the British. Prior to this the vast majority, more then 80 % percent of the peole of Arabia adhered to the creed of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat, and this creed was dominant for nearly 1200 years and with grace of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is still the dominant creed in Arabia. How can a creed which reigned supreme in Arabian Peninsula for 1300 years as majority, and from there spread to rest of the world and which is still the dominant creed upto this day, can be promoting Shirk! Prophet said hold to Sawad Al Azam (i.e. great majority) of Muslims they are the Firqa Naj'jiah (i.e. saved sect).Wallahi, those who accuse Ahle Sunnat of Shirk, are not aware of what the definition of Shirk in the light of Quran and Sunnah is, and they do not know what the definition of Ibadah (i.e. worship) is. It is not Shirk in the Ummah, rathers its their erroneous rules and principles, which are basis of their erroneous understandings, and its these faulty rules principles when utilised produce results which are in contradiction to clear explicit authentic ahadith.Part Three:- Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab Najdi was born in a prominent scholarly family, whose scholarly clout went back to generations. In early childhood he was taught by his father but later on due to hot headedness he would often argue with his father and his teachers on issues which he had not yet learnt fully.[3] As a result of this he was often beaten by his father for arguing when he crossed the limits in arguments. When he got bit older, and excercised independence he stoped learning from his father and journeyed to places far and wide looking for like minded people so he could gain knowledge from them. Upon his return from his studies he started to propogate his brand of Islam, and part of it involved branding Muslims as grave-worshippers, tree -worshippers, saint-worshippers. When this happened his father Seikh Abdul Wahhab (may Allah bless him) and his brother Seikh Sulaiman Ibn Abdul Wahhab took upon themselves the task of refuting him and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) granted them success. During the life time of his father Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) humiliated and kept Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab success limited but after he passed away the obstacles which Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) had in path of Wahhabi'ism were pretty much removed. With millitary might at disposal of Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab Seikh Sulaiman bin Abdul Wahhab's opposition amounted to nothing. And people of Najd quickly fell in line with Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab's teachings.[4]Part Four:- It is my gut instinc is, and a educated judgement[5] that Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) had foretold about Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab Najdi in this hadith and people who will be like him before or after him:Sahih Ibn Hibban,Volume 1, Hadith 81: “... Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) said: 'The most I fear on you is a man[6] who will recite the Quran until its brightness appears on him and he becomes a supporter to Islam, then he changes it (i.e. Islamic teachings) to what Allah permits and wills. Upon that, the man become detached from it (i.e. Islam), and he throws it behind his back, and start to fight his neighbor with sword, and he accuse him (his neighbor) of shirk". I (i.e. Hudhaifah) said: O prophet of Allah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam): Who amongst them both deserve to be called a Mushrik? The accused or the accuser? He replied: "The accuser"The trait of these Wahhabi's was and still is that they accuse Muslims of commiting Shirk, and Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said Ummah as whole will be free from Shirk, and told that one accusing his Ummatis of Shirk will in reality will be Mushrik.Part Six:- I urge Muslims to not go to extremes in religion[7], obey Allah and the Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam)[8]. Give up your understandings and return to the simple deen taught by RasooolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). Refrain from taweels of clears ahadith, and submit to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and Allah's Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). Even if what they state goes against everything you know, learnt, understand, for Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) can not be decieved and was never lead astray, he was guided by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and you are guided by your intellect, and judgement, bias's, which Shaytaan can cloud, and wisper misguidance into your ears. Safe, and sure guidance is of Allah's beloved Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'salam). Destruction of aakhirah is path of your own making. Whom Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) guides none can misguide him, so seek guidance from Him earnestly, and let not the guidance pass you or Shaytaan will come and misguide you. For who so ever Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) decrees misguidance none can guide him. So seek protection from misguidance from Him. Guidance is for those who seek from Him, and protection of misguidance is for those who seek from Him. And those who do not seek from Him and respond positively when he provides guidance; For such men, and women hell will be their dewelling place. Alhamdu'lillahi rabbil alameen.Wama Alayna Ilal Balaghul Mubeen.Muhammed Ali Razavi------------------------------

FootNotes:

- [1] Respecting, honouring, loving the Ulamah who have not become Lords against Allah (subhana wa ta'ala); who have not declared a halal as haram or haram as halal can not be worship of them. Respecting, loving, caring scholars who uphold the deen of RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) with their righteous teachings and righteous actions is legitimate in light of Shariah.

- [2] The end of those who prefer their own opinions over the beloved Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) has been explained in a Hadith: “... The Prophet recited Surat An-Najam and prostrated, and there was nobody who did not prostrate then except a man whom I saw taking a handful of pebbles, lifting it, and prostrating on it. He then said, "This is sufficient for me. ... The narrator then goes on to say: " No doubt I saw him killed as a disbeliever afterwards.” [ref: Bukhari, B58, H192] The reason for his apostacy are two; one, he preffered his own opinion even when the Jammat of Sahabah (alayhi ridwan) and RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) were present. And his this action was in opposition to the Jammah, he deviated from the Jammah, hence he fell prey to Shaytaan and incited him upon disbelief. Two he was too proud to bow to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) so instead of bowing as Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) taught (i.e. bow on the ground) he picked up the pebbles from ground and placed them on his forehead declaring it to be sufficent replacement for Sajdah.

- [3] My assumption is that his arguments with his father and his teachers were on aspect of aqeedah of Tawheed, and Shirk. And no where else his lack of proper understanding of basics of deen shows best then in aqeedah of Shirk, and in its definition. Which unfortunately inheritors of his teachings are also plagued with.

- [4] The people of Najd were described by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam): “... and those bedouins who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to Religion; ...” [ref: Muslim,B54, 520] so their acceptance of his teaching was based on ignorance of deen, and secondly at the point of sword.

- [5] Educated judgement based on his takfir of Muslims, calling them Mushrikeen, fighting them and making fighting halal with Muslims. Note fighting and killing Muslims is infidelity: "Do not become disbelievers after me by cutting the necks of one another." [ref: Bukhari, B73, H187]

 

- [6]The words: “The most I fear on you is a man who will recite the Quran until its brightness appears ...” indicate that this hadith is not about just a single person, but it could be about more then one person. Let me explain how this is: 'I fear on you a man who shows no remorse to animals and kills them for pleasure.' This shows that '… you a man ...' isnt refering to just a single person but anyone from that group, it could be one or more then one, but who ever meets the criteria of killing animals for pleasure is what I fear. Similarly what beloved RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) has stated is not just about a man but anyone from his Ummah who loves to recite Quran, and recites it so much that sign of recitation show on his face (i.e. noor of Quran).

- [7] For Prophet instructed to fallow the straight path. It's not parth of Takfir, its path of what you disagree with or are suspicious of abstain from it and hold to clear, doubtless. Abstain from Takfir on issues which Ummah has whole has not agreed upon.

- [8] As both of them supposed to be believed. Even if what they state disagrees with your understanding and your opinions if they are opposed by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), as well as beloved Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) then you hold to unclear, doubtful, let go of it.

Explanation Of Prophetic Saying: "Satan Lost All Hopes That The Worshippers Would Ever Worship Him ..."

Introduction:

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) is reported to have said that Satan has given up hope that Muslims of Arabian Peninsula would ever worship him. There are numbers of interpretations of this statement and this article would focus on one understanding and point out the implications it has for belief and practice of Muslims. And then point out how it effects those who believe contrary to the teaching of Hadith.

Hadith Of Satan Has Lost All Hope Of Being Worshipped:

"Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship him in the Peninsula of Arabia, but he (is hopeful) that he would sow the seed of dissension amongst them." [Ref: Muslim, B39, H6752]

A Way Of Taking Lord Beside Allah:

Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states Jews took their Rabbinical priests as Lords besides Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala): "They take their (Christian) priests and their (Jewish) Rabbaniyah to be their Lords against Allah, and Christ the son of Mary; yet they were commanded to worship none but One Allah. there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him: (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)." [Ref: 9:31] The classical commentators of Quran have explained the Jews taking their Rabbis as Lords is in meaning of Jewish obedience of Rabbis with regards to the Halal which their Rabbis declared Haram, and Haram which the Rabbis declared Halal: "They have taken their rabbis, the scholars among the Jews, and their monks, the devout among the Christians, as lords beside God — following them in making lawful what God has made unlawful and making unlawful what He has made lawful — and the Messiah, son of Mary, when they were not commanded, in the Torah and the Gospel, except to worship One God: there is no god except Him; glory be to Him, as an affirmation of His transcendence (high), above what they associate (with Him)." [Ref: 9:31, Tafsir al-Jalalayn] "(They have taken as lords beside Allah) i.e. they obeyed them in acts of disobedience (their rabbis) the men of knowledge among the Jews (and their monks) who reside in monasteries (and the Messiah son of Mary) and they have taken the Messiah son of Mary as lord, (when they were bidden) in all Scriptures (to worship) to confess the divine Oneness of (only One God. There is no god save Him. Be He glorified from all that they ascribe as partner!) Allah exalts Himself above all that which they ascribe to Him." [Ref: 9:31, Tafsir Ibn Abbas] It is also recorded in Musnad Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal, Hadith of Tirmadhi Shareef, Prophet Muhammed (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) explained the meaning of following because the Rabbis declared the Haram as Halal, and Halal as Haram, and the Yahood and Nasara obeyed them:
“Narrated 'Adi bin Hatim: "I came to the Prophet while I had a cross of gold around my neck. He said: 'O Adi! Remove this idol from yourself!' And I heard him reciting from Surah Bara'ah: ‘They took their rabbis and monks as lords besides Allah.’ (9:31). He said: 'As for them, they did not worship them, but when they made something lawful for them, they considered it lawful, and when they made something unlawful for them, they considered it unlawful.'" [Ref: Tirmadhi, B44, H3095]

Taking Of Satan As Lord Beside Allah:

The right to declare something as Halal/Haram is of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), the Lord of universe, and one who has been conferred this right i.e. Prophet/Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). From this we gather what Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) had declared Haram and Halal, if anyone other then Him and His Messenger was to change it, and we obeyed them, we then would be guilty of taking that individual as lord in partnership with Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Or as Prophet after gate of Prophet-hood has been closed. In context of Hadith of Ummah of Arabia worshiping Satan, Satan legalizes taking of others as Ilah beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and legalizes worship these gods. Those who accept his suggestions and engage what he commands in reality take him as a lord beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) also. Note notion that Satan is taken as lord is implied and not explicitly affirmed therefore no major Shirk has taken place. Instead it amounts to minor Shirk if at all. It would be major Shirk if person emphatically attributes Ilahiyyah/Rububiyyah to Satan and performs actions with intention of worship. Also it is not major Shirk because there is implied ihtimal (i.e. possibility) of Satan being taken as a Prophet.

Children Of Adam You Should Not Obey Satan:

Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) states in Quran: “Did I not command you O children of Adam, that you should not worship the Devil. Verily, he is a plain enemy to you.” [Ref: 36:60] Note the words, "O children of Adam, ...", indicates that Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is referring to every single human, including Prophets and their followers. Verse 61 states Satan lead many people astray (i.e. made them worship him). In this context the commentators of Quran have explained; worship of Satan is obedience of Satan and disobedience to Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala): "(Did I not command you, O Children of Adam, that you should not worship Shaytan Verily, he is a plain enemy to you.) This is a rebuke from Allah to the disbelievers among the sons of Adam, those who obey the Shaytan even though he was a plain enemy to them, and they disobeyed Ar-Rahman Who created them and granted them provision." [Ref: 36:60, Tafsir Ibn Kaseer] "Did I not charge you, command you, O children of Adam, by the tongues of My messengers, that you should not worship Satan, (that you should) not obey him; truly he is a manifest enemy to you, one whose enmity is evident, ..." [Ref: 36:60, Tafsir Jalalayn] "He will also say to them: (Did I not charge you) did I not present to you, in the Scripture brought by the Messenger, (O ye sons of Adam, that ye worship not the devil) that you should not obey the devil. (Lo! he is your open foe) whose enmity is quite manifest!" [Ref: 36:60, Tafsir Ibn Abbas] In the verse Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has prohibited obedience to Satan because he is avowed enemy of mankind and as an enemy his suggestions would only be destruction.

Worship Of Satan Is Same As Taking Satan As Lord:

In context of discussion so far it is worth pointing out; taking of creation as a lord beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is obeying creation who has declared a Haram as Halal against the teaching of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). And in language of Quranic verse, 36:60, Satan worship is obedience to Satan and doing against teaching and instruction of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). In other words Satan Harams what Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) Halaled and those who accept his suggestions take him as a lord beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and due to their obedience is of Satan worship.

Understanding Hadith Of Satan Lost Hope:


Prophet Muhammed (sallallahu alayhi was'sallam) foretold in a Sahih Hadith: "Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship him in the Peninsula of Arabia, but he (is hopeful) that he would sow the seed of dissension amongst them." [Ref: Muslim, B39, H6752] Yahood/Nasara took their priests and Rabbis as lords beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) by accepting the Halal as Haram and Haram as Halal. And Satan would be lord if we obey his Haram as Halal and Halal as Haram. In other words we would be guilty of Satan worship (i.e. obedience of Satan) if we accept his direction of Shirk, Kufr, Haram/Halal. Therefore one meaning of following is Satan has given up hope on being taken as lord beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and has despaired of ever being worshipped (i.e. obeyed) by Muslims of Arabian Peninsula: "Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship him in the peninsula of Arabia ..."

The Despair Of Satan Would Only Lift After Death Of Muslims:

Ummah as whole has refused to obey the individuals who under the influence of Satan have declared Haram as Halal, and Halal as Haram. And Ummah has whole has refused to honor, respect, love, such individuals. Therefore the natural conclusion is; Ummah as whole has not worshipped Ghayrullah including Satan but only worship and obey Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) on serious matters of Haram/Halal. With this Hadith Prophet Muhammed (sallallahu alayhi was'sallam) has certified that Arabian Peninsula as whole from dawn of Islam till blowing of the musky wind will be free from major Shirk in belief and action. And free from Satan and his clans-men being taken Lords besides Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), free from Satan being obeyed (i.e. worshipped) in matters of Haram and Halal. Meaning his believing Ummah in Arabian Peninsula will not ascribe Ilahiyyah to Satan, or to anyone else, nor confer the right of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), such as worship, upon any creation. This meaning is derived because attributing Ilahiyyah to a creation is Haram and worshipping others beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is Haram. And Muslim Ummah Arabiyyah, as whole, will not obey Satan in this regard. Hadith records only time Satan would approach the people of Arabia to encourage them to commit Shirk is when all the Muslims would have passed through cool musky wind: “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the characteristics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil. Then Satan would come to them in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols but, in spite of this, they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives. Then the trumpet would be blown and no one ....” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7023] Please read the detailed Hadith in the link provided,
here. I am SO confident that I can say with a CHALLENGE; there is no Hadith in vast collections of Ahadith where it is stated that Satan would attempt to encourage the Muslim Ummah, or Muslim of Arabia to committing Shirk. Nor there is proof of Satan coming to Muslim Ummah, or Muslims of Arabia to encourage them to commit Shirk before the blowing of said wind. The confidence stems from the fact that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) as despaired, given up hope, of succeeding in this endeavor. He is so demoralized because of Tawheed and how it has been instilled in Muslims that he would only attempt it after the Muslims of Arabia in specific and world have died. He would come to Kafirs/Atheists of Arabia and say don’t you respond and they will agree to idol worship. And eventually they will revert to religion of their forefathers and worship idols which their fore-fathers used to worship such as Lat and Uzza: “Aisha reported:I heard Allah's Messenger as saying: The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.[] Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them. And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers. [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945]


End Of Those Who Prefer Personal Understanding Over Prophetic Guidance:

Those accused the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah of worshipping graves, tombs, are liars and falsifiers of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). They have disbelieved in RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) and instead have surrendered to whispers of Satan of Najd and his minions (i.e. Qarn al-Shaytan). He has incited them to raise their voice over the voice of Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam). They in obedience to Satan, the cursed, have thrown the guidance of beloved Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi was'sallam) behind their backs and have preferred for themselves their own understandings. The end of those who prefer their own opinions over the beloved Messenger (sallallahu alayhi was'sallam) has been explained in a Hadith:
“... The Prophet recited Surat An-Najam and prostrated, and there was nobody who did not prostrate then except a man whom I saw taking a handful of pebbles, lifting it, and prostrating on it. He then said, "This is sufficient for me. ... The narrator then goes on to say: “No doubt I saw him killed as a disbeliever afterwards.” [Ref: Bukhari, B58, H192] The reason for his apostasy are two; one, he preferred his own opinion even when the companions and RasoolAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) were present. And this action was in opposition to the Jammah, he deviated from the Jammah, hence he fell prey to Satan and incited him upon disbelief. Two he was too proud to bow to Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) so instead of bowing as Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) taught, i.e. bow on the ground, he picked up the pebbles from ground and placed them on his forehead declaring it to be sufficient replacement for Sajdah.

Shaykh Of Najd And Irreligious Idiots Followed Him:

Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab Najdi was born in a prominent scholarly family, whose scholarly clout went back to generations. In early childhood he was taught by his father but later on due to hot headedness he would often argue with his father and his teachers on issues which he had not yet learnt fully.
[1] As a result of this he was often beaten by his father for arguing when he crossed the limits in arguments. When he got bit older, and exercised independence he stopped learning from his father and journeyed to places far and wide [Iraq, Yemen, Oman, Syria][2] looking for like minded people so he could gain knowledge from them. Upon his return from his studies he started to propagate his brand of Islam, and part of it involved branding Muslims as grave-worshippers, tree -worshippers, saint-worshippers. When this happened his father Shaykh Abdul Wahhab (may Allah bless him) and his brother Shaykh Sulaiman Ibn Abdul Wahhab took upon themselves the task of refuting him and Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) granted them success. During the life time of his father Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) humiliated and kept Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab success limited but after he passed away the obstacles which Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) had in path of Wahhabism were pretty much removed. With military might at disposal of Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab Shaykh Sulaiman Ibn Abdul Wahhab's opposition amounted to nothing. And people of Najd quickly fell in line with Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab's teachings. The people of Najd were described by Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam): “... and those Bedouins who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to Religion; ...” [Ref: Muslim,B54, 520] So their acceptance of his teaching was based on ignorance of true religion of Islam, and secondly at the point of sword. And these, young, but well meaning idiots of Najd then went onto ravage Najd and Arabian Peninsula under the pretext that Muslims have become Mushrik. They made Takfir of Muslims, calling them Mushrikeen, they made killing of Muslims Halal upon themselves. Fighting and killing Muslims is infidelity: "Do not become disbelievers after me by cutting the necks of one another." [Ref: Bukhari, B73, H187]

Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab In Corsair Of Prophetic Teaching:

It is my instinctive and educated judgment that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was'sallam) had foretold about Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab Najdi in the following Hadith and people who will be like him: “... Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam) said: 'The most I fear for you is a man who will recite the Quran until its brightness appears on him and he becomes a supporter to Islam, then he changes it (i.e. Islamic teachings) to what Allah permits and wills. Upon that, the man become detached from it (i.e. Islam), and he throws it behind his back, and start to fight his neighbor with sword, and he accuse him (his neighbor) of shirk". I (i.e. Hudhaifah) said: O prophet of Allah (sallallahu alayhi was’sallam): Who amongst them both deserve to be called a Mushrik? The accused or the accuser? He replied: "The accuser" [Ref: Sahih Ibn Hibban,Vo1, H81] The trait of Wahhabi's was and still is that they accuse Muslims of committing Shirk and Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was'sallam) said Ummah as whole will be free from Shirk, and told that one accusing his Ummatis of Shirk will in reality will be Mushrik.

Conclusion:

Meaning of Satan worship in language of Quran is obedience to Satan and it is in same meaning as the Jews and Christians took their religious scholars as lords beside Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi was’sallam) said Satan will not be worshipped by worshippers of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) in Arabian Peninsula. And one meaning of this is that Muslim of Arabian Peninsula would not accept a Haram as Halal, and a Halal as Haram on the instruction of Iblees. Obedience to him in this regard would be worship of Satan.

FootNotes:

- [1] My judgment is that Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab’s arguments with his father and his teachers were regarding creed of Tawheed and Shirk. And no where else his lack of proper understanding of basics of Islam demonstrates best then in creed of Shirk and its definition. Unfortunately, which even the inheritors of his brand of Kharijism are also plagued with. As result any discussion with his minions on subject of Tawheed/Shirk, and on methodology of determining Tawheed/Shirk quickly denegerates to an imbecilic level.

- [2] Iraq, Yemen, and Oman had noteworthy population of Ibadi Kharijism. And his choice to visit these three countries for studies is more then enough proof of Kharijism. And why he returned Takfir maniac and made Halal the blood, women, and property of Muslims.
