Shaytan gets pleased with discord between spouses

Question

Please give me the Hadith about Iblis’s throne on the sea and how he embraces the shaytan who causes division between the husband and the wife. That this is the best work of shaytan; to break a marriage.

 

Answer

Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu’anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘Indeed Iblis places his throne on the [ocean’s] water. He then dispatches his troops. The one who is closest to him is he who creates the most amount of fitnah (distraction).

One of them comes to him and reports: ‘I did such and such a deed.’ Iblis replies: “You haven’t done anything.’

Another of them then says: ‘I didn’t leave until I separated between him (a particular man) and his wife.’

Iblis brings him close to him [and in one narration: embraces him] and says: ‘You have done well.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 7037)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
