Satan awaits in all your paths!

You must have heard Satan taking oaths to Allah and say,

{قَالَ فَبِمَا أَغْوَيْتَنِي لَأَقْعُدَنَّ لَهُمْ صِرَاطَكَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ ﴿١٦﴾
ثُمَّ لَآتِيَنَّهُم مِّن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ وَعَنْ أَيْمَانِهِمْ وَعَن شَمَائِلِهِمْ ۖ وَلَا تَجِدُ أَكْثَرَهُمْ شَاكِرِينَ}الأعراف: 16- 17
“(Iblis) said: “Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path. (16) Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them as thankful ones (i.e. they will not be dutiful to You).”” [Al-A’raaf 7:16-17]

The prophet who was sent to them warned them of Satan methods.

He said to them

إن الشيطان قعد لابن آدم بأطرقه ،
فقعد له بطريق الإسلام فقال له: أتسلم وتذر دينك ودين آبائك وأباء أبيك؟ قال: فعصاه فأسلم،
ثم قعد له بطريق الهجرة فقال: أتهاجر وتذر أرضك وسماءك وإنما مثل المهاجر كمثل الفرس في الطول، قال: فعصاه فهاجر،
ثم قعد له بطريق الجهاد فقال: هو جهد النفس والمال فتقاتل فتنكح المرأة ويقسم المال…
رواه ابن حبان، صحيح
“Satan awaits the son of Adam in all his paths insinuating evil, and in the path of Islam.
Then he said to him: ‘Would you turn to Islam and leave your religion and that of your forefathers?’
The Son of Adam failed Satan and turned to Islam.
Then he awaits in his road to hijrah saying, ‘Would you migrate and forsake your earth and sky?’
The son of Adam failed him and migrated.
Then he awaits him on his path to jihad saying, ‘Would you strive in Allah’s way and die so that your wealth is apportioned between inheritors and your wife be married?”

[Reported by Ibn Habban, Authentic]
