Salaam all, and thank you for participating. I'm wondering the majority opinion concerning the substance of Qareen in the Shia world. From what I read in Quran, it mentions that only those who turn away from God's beneficence will be assigned a Qareen, but we have hadith and literature (from what I know in Sunni world) that the Prophet SAW said we all have qareen including himself. With regard to the hadith of Muhammad, “There is none of you who does not have a companion (qareen) appointed for him from among the jinn.” They said, “Even you?” He said, “Even me, but Allaah helped me against him fa aslama [or fa aslamu], so he only tells me to do that which is good.” There are two well-known views that have been reported. Those who read the phrase as fa aslamu said that it means, “So I am safe [aslamu] from his evil and temptation.” Those who read it as fa aslama said that it means, “The qareen became Muslim [aslama] and became a believer, so he only tells me to do that which is good.”  ----- This makes me wonder about the Prophet Muhammads SAW substance as a person/soul comparer to us. It seems to fit alongside a narrative supposing Muhammad was an erring human like the rest of us but just was best representation of a human being the best it can be, rather than a being we can never hope to achieve the same level in terms of piety and belief.
