108. Satan’s Saying that the Children of Adam Cannot Defeat Me in at Least Three Situations

Back to book

3-141 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد ابن عيسى، عن محمد بن خالد البرقي، عن عبدالرحمن بن محمد العرزمي، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال:يقول إبليس لعنه الله -: ما أعياني في ابن آدم فن يعييني منه واحدة من ثلاث: أخذ مال من غير حله، أو منعه من حقه، أو وضعه في غير وجهه


3-141 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Aba Abdullah Muhammad ibn Khalid al-Barqy, on the authority of Abdul Rahman ibn Muhammad al-Arzami, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), “Satan - may God damn him - said, ‘The Children of Adam (i.e. the people) will not defeat me in three situations even if they do so in other respects: taking what is not rightfully theirs; blocking someone else’s due rights and spending things not in their due way.’”
