Hadith on Monotheism: Human beings were made to worship Allah, but Satan leads people astray

October 31, 2012

Iyad ibn Himar reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was delivering a sermon and he said, “Verily, my Lord has commanded me that I should teach you that which you do not know and which He has taught me today. He says: All wealth which I have bestowed upon them is lawful. I have created all of My servants naturally inclined to worship one God but it is the devils who turn them away from their religion; they make unlawful for them what has been made lawful for them, and they command them to associate partners with Me, although no authority has been revealed for them. Verily, Allah looked at the people of the earth and He detested them, their Arabs and their foreigners, except for what remained of the people of the Book.”

عَنْ عِيَاضِ بْنِ حِمَارٍ الْمُجَاشِعِيِّ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ فِي خُطْبَتِهِ أَلَا إِنَّ رَبِّي أَمَرَنِي أَنْ أُعَلِّمَكُمْ مَا جَهِلْتُمْ مِمَّا عَلَّمَنِي يَوْمِي هَذَا كُلُّ مَالٍ نَحَلْتُهُ عَبْدًا حَلَالٌ وَإِنِّي خَلَقْتُ عِبَادِي حُنَفَاءَ كُلَّهُمْ وَإِنَّهُمْ أَتَتْهُمْ الشَّيَاطِينُ فَاجْتَالَتْهُمْ عَنْ دِينِهِمْ وَحَرَّمَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ مَا أَحْلَلْتُ لَهُمْ وَأَمَرَتْهُمْ أَنْ لَا يُشْرِكُوا بِي مَا لَمْ أُنْزِلْ بِهِ سُلْطَانًا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ نَظَرَ إِلَى أَهْلِ الْأَرْضِ فَمَقَتَهُمْ عَرَبَهُمْ وَعَجَمَهُمْ إِلَّا بَقَايَا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ

2865 صحيح مسلم كِتَاب الْجَنَّةِ وَصِفَةِ نَعِيمِهَا وَأَهْلِهَا بَاب الصِّفَاتِ الَّتِي يُعْرَفُ بِهَا فِي الدُّنْيَا أَهْلُ الْجَنَّةِ وَأَهْلُ النَّارِ
