بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Almighty Allah says in the Quran, that the shaitan is an open enemy to every believer, so you should treat him as an enemy.

Verily Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy! He only invites his adherents that they may become Companions of the Blazing Fire. Quran[35:6]

Our beloved prophet said that shaitan circulates in the body of man just like ones blood circulates in it; thus this enemy of man is constant in his whispering and inciting of evil whenever he is given an opportunity.

Narrated by Ali bin Al Husain from Safiya The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: 'The Shaytaan circulates in the body of Adam's offspring, as one's blood circulates in it." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI [Volume 3:: Book 33 :: Hadith 255]

Recalling the event at Adams (as) creation: Allah commanded to prostrate, everyone except iblis prostrated, thereby disobeyed his creator. The iblis was cursed, then iblis challenged that he would divert people from the Way of Allah by making this worldly life very tempting to them, Allah accepted his challenge. Thus the only job of shaitan is to whisper in to the hearts and minds of people to disobey the creator, to transgress any of his limits, or to divert from the true path.

Your statement: ‘the Muhammad saw had made the shaitan with him’.

It is not up to anyone in the creation to have or not to have shaitan with one self (ACCORDING TO ONES WILL), the shaitan is by default with every son of Adam(as). Our beloved prophet said; shaitan is attached to everyone, when it was asked, is shaitan also with you; he replied yes. However what is in the will of any one; is to obey or not to obey the shaitan.

Thus your statement ‘Muhammad saw had made the shaitan with him’ is absolutely incorrect, rather it would be ‘Muhammad saw had the shaitan with him’.

A'isha the wife of Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him), reported that one day Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) came out of her (apartment) during the night and she felt jealous. Then he came and he saw me (in what agitated state of mind) I was. He said: A'isha, what has happened to you? Do you feel jealous? Thereupon she said: How can it he (that a woman like me) should not feel jealous in regard to a husband like you. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: It was your devil who had come to you, and she said: Allah's Mes- senger, is there along with me a devil? He said: Yes. I said: Is devil attached to everyone? He said: Yes. I (Aisha) again said: Allah's Messenger, is it with you also? He said: Yes, but my Lord has helped me against him and as such I am ab solutely safe from his mischief. SAHIH MUSLIM [Book 039, Number 6759]

Abdullah b. Mas'ud reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah's Messenger, with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good. SAHIH MUSLIM [Book 039, Number 6757]

It was narrated from 'Ubadah bin Al-Walid bin 'Ubadah bin As-Samit that 'Aishah said: "I looked for the Messenger of Allah and I put my hand on his hair." He said: "Your Shaitan has come to you." I said: "Don't you have a Shaitan?" He said: "Yes, but Allah helped me with him, so he submitted." ( Sahih) SUNAN AN-NASAI [Vol. 4, Book 36, Hadith 3412]

Jabir narrated that The Prophet said: “Do not enter upon Al-Mughibar (the women whose husband are absent), for indeed the Shaitan flows through one of you as the blood flows.” We said: “And you?” He said: “And me, but Allah helped me over him, so I am safe.” (Hasan) Tirmidhi [Vol. 1, Book 7, Hadith 1172 / Arabic reference Book 12, Hadith 1205]

According to the above guidance, there is a shaitan with everyone, and yes he was also with the blessed prophet (pbuh), but the effect of him on our beloved prophet was zero, as Allah has helped his prophet (pbuh) against him and was absolutely safe from his mischief. As is evident from these narrations:

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet once offered the prayer and said, "Satan came in front of me and tried to interrupt my prayer, but Allah gave me an upper hand on him and I choked him. No doubt, I thought of tying him to one of the pillars of the mosque till you get up in the morning and see him. Then I remembered the statement of Prophet Solomon, 'My Lord ! Bestow on me a kingdom such as shall not belong to any other after me.' Then Allah made him (Satan) return with his head down (humiliated)." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI [VOL.:2, BOOK: 22, HADITH: 301]

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet offered a prayer, and (after finishing) he said, "Satan came in front of me trying persistently to divert my attention from the prayer, but Allah gave me the strength to over-power him." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI [VOL.: 4 , BOOK: 54, Hadith 504]

Your statement: will that shaitan enter paradise?

The shaitan is a disbeliever and every disbeliever will be through into the hell not in heaven. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
