Question

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu, Shaykh. Is it true that Satan lives in Makkah and that the small devils are elsewhere? I heard this from a completely unreliable person, but I want to know whether it is true or not. May Allaah reward you, Shaykh.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

This is not true, and you should not pay any attention to information given by other than the specialized scholars. You must accept religious information only from reliable scholars known for profound religious knowledge and proficiency in this regard, in compliance with the verse that reads (what means): {So ask the people of the message if you do not know.} [Quran 16:43]

Allah knows best.
