Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is it permissible for a person to pray that the Shaytaan may be guided?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for anyone to pray in this manner, because it goes against the ruling of Allaah, and against His decree. For Allaah has decreed in His wisdom that the Shaytaan is cursed until the Day of Judgement.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
