Ash-Shayaateen Led Them Astray

Shaykh Yahyaa Al-Hajooree (may Allaah preserve him) stated regarding the Hadeeth of I'yaad Ibn Himaar (may Allaah be pleased with him): That the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) mentioned on His Lord:

"Indeed I created my servants as monotheists..."
Shaykh Yahyaa stated:
"The Haneef is the one who turns to Allaah, excluding other than Him."
"Then the Shayaateen led them astray"
Shaykh Yahyaa stated:
"Meaning they made Haraam upon them that which Allaah made Halaal. They also made Halaal that which Allaah made Haraamfor them. The meaning of the statement -Then the Shayaateen led them astray- means that they distanced them from the truth. This entails the Shayaateen of the mankind and the Shayaateen of the Jinn. It's possible that they can be the father, the mother, the companion one sits with, from the children, or the neighbors who can be one of the Shayaateen who misled that child"
Allaah has stated:
"Shayaateen from the mankind and Jinn, inspiring one another with adorned speech as a delusion."
(Soorah Al-An'aam: 112)
