Ibn Abbas on Shaytan: Devil withdraws if one remembers Allah

Al-Bukhari reported: Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “When a person is born, Satan remains hidden from him. If one remembers Allah Almighty, he will leave. If one does not remember Allah, he will remain fixed over his heart.”

عَنْ البخاري عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رضي الله عنه  إِذَا وُلِدَ خَنَسَهُ الشَّيْطَانُ فَإِذَا ذُكِرَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ ذَهَبَ وَإِذَا لَمْ يَذْكُرِ اللَّهَ ثَبَتَ عَلَى قَلْبِهِ
