كُلُّ بَنِي آدَمَ يَمَسُّهُ الشَّيْطَانُ يَوْمَ وَلَدَتْهُ أُمُّهُ إِلَّا مَرْيَمَ وَابْنَهَا

Satan touches every son of Adam on the day his mother gives birth to him, except for Mary and her son.

Source: Sahih Muslim 2366, Grade: Sahih

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith, Hadith 4.506, narrated by Abu Huraira:

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ كُلُّ بَنِي آدَمَ يَطْعُنُ الشَّيْطَانُ فِي جَنْبَيْهِ بِإِصْبَعِهِ حِينَ يُولَدُ، غَيْرَ عِيسَى بْنِ مَرْيَمَ، ذَهَبَ يَطْعُنُ فَطَعَنَ فِي الْحِجَابِ ‏"‏‏.‏

The Prophet said, "When any human being is born, Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead."

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith, Hadith 4.641 Narrated by Said bin Al Musaiyab:

قَالَ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏"‏ مَا مِنْ بَنِي آدَمَ مَوْلُودٌ إِلاَّ يَمَسُّهُ الشَّيْطَانُ حِينَ يُولَدُ، فَيَسْتَهِلُّ صَارِخًا مِنْ مَسِّ الشَّيْطَانِ، غَيْرَ مَرْيَمَ وَابْنِهَا ‏"‏‏

Abu Huraira said, "I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'There is none born among the off-spring of Adam, but Satan touches it. A child therefore, cries loudly at the time of birth because of the touch of Satan, except Mary and her child."

Salaam Aleikum,

What is the reason for this hadith? What does it mean by Shaitan to touch every human being? Impurity?

Dear God. Abu Hurairah again, I take a grain of salt from Abu Hurairah narrations. They are all Ahad and unsupported by other narrators and unsupported by the Qur'an. To demonstrate the gullibility some western scholar stood up in front of a Muslims crowd and said - "Under the authority of Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.s) said - Those who touch the tip of the nose with the tongue will not enter hell" He then watched perplexed Muslims trying to touch the nose with the tongue.

I don't reject all narrations. I am just skeptical. This hadith about shaytan touching babies goes against the quranic teaching that people are born without sins.

There is actually a lot of narrations from Omar that he used to beat badly Abu Hurairah and lady Aisha also accused Abu Hurairah of talking lies and claiming the Prophet (s.a.w.s) as his authority and Ali also accused Abu Hurairah. Even some honest sunni scholars of hadiths raised questions about certain Abu Hurairah narrations.

Now I can turn blind to all those facts and accept Bukhari silly standards in grading Abu Hurairah trustworthy.

    • I  understand what you are trying to say but kindly understand what i am trying to ask. You are saying that how leaving Islam should be punishable by death. I am asking its not about what should be and how it should be, its about what is ruling in this matter. And whether any Ayyah  directly hints towards this ruling ?  I completely agree but similar to above discussion in link there is no reference to Quran. 
      I understand that even treason against country is punishable by death then why not for religion. But what i want you to understand that rulings are not as per yours and mine understanding. If that so then i say it should not be done like this.  Its matter of life and death of a human being. It cant be interpreted that easily as per one's thinking. Same Islam asks to respect every human being regardless of their religion and color. 
    • @hasanhh and anyone else who would enjoy a light comedy war film. This one has its moments. Its also thought provoking and asks a big question about the purpose (or the absence of it) behind the US occupation of Afghanistan.
    • KSA wants to try and make a dent before their abominable presence leaves the stage of history forever. However it is ridiculous to think Saudis will be fighting a war with anyone alone while they can't even bomb Yemeni babies on their own. Same goes for Israheil. So naturally they will bring their uncle Frankenstein Sam to help them out with the heavy lifting as usual. However due to important strategic reasons they will be go for Lebanon and Syrian territory first. This is why Netanyuhu and King Salamander have been grovelling at Putin's feet through 2017. If I was Putin I would pull a Danzig with them and take their monies then back stab them after having filled my defending allies with weapons. China will not be joining in. They are worse than Jews in seeking wealth. Of course the US senate will soon give the go ahead for their troops and fleet to deploy (since someone in the thread was innocently asking why one of their fleets stays in the region, this is it). This is also why they had Iran under sanctions since so many years, to weaken their preparations. This is also why they have created hell in Balochistan and other borders surrounding Iran. They think that will prove to be enough deterrence for paramilitary forces attempting to reinforce IRGC. Manpower. That stupid video someone linked before was right about one thing and that is the very significant advantage in manpower Iran has. Available manpower is directly proportional to motivation of the people. That is why Israhellis and Saudis and Yanks are bound to lose if the Shia manpower is mobilized who a lot of them will proceed to fight till the death while the axis of bankers has little motivation which will die out when the body bags start coming in. Israhellis used to literally die of fear when Saddam fired a few scuds into their cesspool. Saudis are too decadent and incompetent. Yanks are waking up to the truth and are also oppressed now and its not a false flag attacked year 2001 anymore. Those of them who will fight will have to fight each other being transsexual, pro-Trump, anti-feminist, white supremacist, pedophiles and all the throngs of tedious little issues plaguing them now. So with such a difference in Morale and perhaps a little bit Russian support as well, God willing above all else, things will change forever. At worst there will be a regime change in Iran which will not change anything because the biggest push of all pushes comes later under Mahdi (as) and Jesus (as) who are promised the manpower, hardware and the ultimate victory to bring the world about and set if free.
    • I know some eastern women put up with their husbands, even after being beaten and abused, as they are very dependant on them. I mean, some women go to the extent of obeying their husband soo much and this is just pure injustice! As for your question about a guy being rejected because he was Eastern - I feel it is a very personal choice as long as she doesn't think Eastern men are inferior to Western men. The choice could be associated with a lot of factors, like personality clash etc I personally would find it easier to get along with Western Muslim girls, because their way of thinking, interacting etc would be similar to mine. However, I'm okay with marrying an Eastern Muslim girl if I get along with her.    
    • You could have fed an entire family for a year with that money, instead of buying things that eventually go out of style and fall apart/get lost after a few years.
