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.
