Hadith on Shaytan: The devil sends out troops to misguide believers

Abu Musa reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “When Satan (Iblis) awakens in the morning, he dispatches his troops, saying: Whoever misguides a Muslim today, I will dress him with a crown. This one will go out and say: I did not leave him alone until he divorced his wife. Satan will say: A Muslim is about to get married. This one will come and say: I did not leave him alone until he disrespected his parents. Satan will say: A Muslim is about to be good to his parents. This one will come and say: I did not leave him alone until he committed idolatry. Satan will say: You, you! Another will come and say: I did not leave him alone until he committed adultery. Satan will say: You, you! This one will come and say: I did not leave him alone until he killed someone. Satan will say: You, you! Then he will dress him with a crown.
