Farts & Prayers with Satan, our pal Iblis, the ExMuslim OG! 🤣
Why was passing wind or farting aka hadath such a big deal in the 7th century? Why are there so many hadith about it? And to associate farting with Satan? Hilarious and bizarre at the same time!
Sahih al-Bukhari 608
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Messenger said, "When the Adhan is pronounced Satan takes to his heels and passes wind with noise during his flight in order not to hear the Adhan. When the Adhan is completed he comes back and again takes to his heels when the Iqama is pronounced and after its completion he returns again till he whispers into the heart of the person (to divert his attention from his prayer) and makes him remember things which he does not recall to his mind before the prayer and that causes him to forget how much he has prayed."
