Shaytaan Spends the Night in Your Nose ! {Bukhari & Muslim}

'Bismillahir Rehmanir Raheem' ".


"Assalam Alaikum Wa Rehmath Ullahi  Wa Barkatahu.





 Shaytaan Spends the Night in Your Nose !

{Know Your Enemy}


أَبِى هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ النَّبِىَّ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قَالَ « إِذَا اسْتَيْقَظَ أَحَدُكُمْ مِنْ مَنَامِهِ فَلْيَسْتَنْثِرْ ثَلاَثَ مَرَّاتٍ فَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ يَبِيتُ عَلَى خَيَاشِيمِهِ ».


Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said:-

" When anyone of you wakes up,

he Must rinse his nose three times.

 Verily Shayttan spends the night inside a person's nostrils.


{Collected by Bukhari 3121 &  S.Muslim}



Benefits for this subject:-


1.   Blowing the nose is an obligation with the Hanbali school of thought and a sunnah with the majority of scholars.

2.   This hadeeth shows that Shaytaan can't open what's closed or locked. Furthermore it has been reported that when a person yawns he should cover his mouth, so Shaytaan can't enter.

[Subulus Salaam]



3.   Shaykh Muhammad Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on this hadeeth in his explanation for Sahih Muslim.



He said," This Hadeeth proves that Shaytaan has the ability to do things and we don't have the ability to perceive it.

Shaytaan spends the night in our nose and we don't know how. We can't make out how anyone could shape their body for the size of a nostril. However if it was something that crawled the size of an atom we could see how.




Nonetheless the world of the Shayaateen and Jinn is hidden from us. And likewise the world of the Angels is hidden from us. There is an Angel on our right and left side that companion us. Do we feel them? We don't feel them, but we believe this to be a fact.




   The hadeeth proves that Allah has given Shaytaan the ability to overpower us.



Allah's Messenger 

[peace and blessings be upon him]



informed us about this act of Shaytaan, so we could be aware of his evil and realize our need for Allah.


Explanation of Sahih Muslim for hadeeth number 24]



  Muhammad Abdur Rauf Al-Manaawee said:-



" Shaytaan also chooses the nose because ....


 # 1/ The eyes are for looking and pondering over

the creations in the heavens and earth.


# 2/ The mouth is for remembering Allah.


       # 3/ The Ears are for listening to knowledge

and Allah's remembrances.


However the nose doesn't have any of these traits.


Therefore this is an entrance for Shaytaan into man's body to whisper to him.



[Faydul Qadeer #436]



My "Salaams: To You All.

  "All that is on earth will Perish. But will abide {Forever} 
 the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour"
 {'Quran'- Surah Al-Rahman-55.26-27 }
Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days,
whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone!
{Al-Hasan Al-Basree}

'Whoever treads on a path in search of Islamic knowledge, Allah will ease the way to Paradise for him. The angels will lower their wings, pleased with this seeker of knowledge, and everyone in the heavens and on earth will ask forgiveness for the knowledgeable person, even the fish in the deepest of waters will ask for his forgiveness".

 [Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi # 2835-sahih hadith]
