Shaytan’s wailing and despondency at the time of the Conquest of Makkah

Question

What is the reference for these words of Iblis?

ايئسوا أن تردوا أمة محمد على الشرك بعد يومكم هذا

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) as part of a longer narration.

On the Day of The Conquest of Makkah, Shaytan wailed/shrieked and said to his army: “Lose all hope in making the ummah of Muhammad polytheists after today…”

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 12318)
