Kindly confirm if the following narration is authentic:
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to ‘Sayyiduna ‘Umar:
“Shaytan does not see you taking walking on a certain path except that he takes a different path”
Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith as part of a lengthier Hadith, on the authority of Sayyiduna Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The narration is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3683 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2396)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
