Hadith jibrael and shaytan chained
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Q-5: what are the basic tenets of islam, other than the pillars of islam?
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.300 Narrated by Abu Huraira
One day while Allah's Messenger (saws) was sitting with his companions, a man whom they had never seen in Madinah before and had absolutely no sign or marks of travel on his apparel or on his appearance, and wearing (pristine) white clothes, came to the Prophet (saws) and sat so close to him (saws) that the knees of the man appeared to touch the knees of the Prophet (saws). That person asked: "O Allah's Messenger (saws), what is Emaan (Faith)?" The Prophet (saws) replied: "Belief is to:-
- believe in (the Absolute Oneness of) Allah,
- believe in (all) His Angels,
- belive in (all) His Revealed Books,
- believe in (all) His Prophets,
- believe in the concept of the Hereafter, and
- to believe in the Divine Qadr (Decree) of Allah Subhanah.
The man declared: Sadaqta (You have spoken the Truth!) and then asked the Prophet (saws): O Messenger of Allah (saws), what is Islam? The Prophet (saws) replied, "Islam is:-
- To testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone, and Mohamed is Allahs Messenger
- to offer five obligatory prayers perfectly,
- to pay the (compulsory) charity, i.e. Zakah,
- to fast the month of Ramadan, and
- to perform the Hajj pilgrimage.
The man (again) declared: Sadaqta (You have spoken the Truth!) and then further asked the Prophet (saws): O Messenger of Allah (saws), what is Ihssan (i.e. perfection or benevolence)?" The Prophet (saws) replied: "Ihsaan is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you do not achieve this state of devotion, then (take it for granted that) Allah sees you." The man further asked, "O Allah's Messenger (saws), when will the Hour be established?" The Prophet (saws) replied, "The one who is asked about it does not know more than the questioner does, but I will describe to you its portents. When the lady slave gives birth to her mistress, that will be (one) of its portents; and when the bare-footed naked people become the chiefs of the people, that will be (one) of its portents. Verily, the Knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone). He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs." The man declared: Sadaqta (You have spoken the Truth!) and then left. The Prophet (saws) told his companions "Call him back to me." They went out after the man to call him back but could not see him. The Prophet (saws) then declared "That was (Hadrat) Jibrael (a.s.) who came to teach you your religion."

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1962 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Ramadan, a blessed month, has come to you during which Allah has made it obligatory for you to fast. In it the gates of Heaven are opened, the gates of al-Jahim (Hell Fire) are closed, and the rebellious Shayateen are chained. In it Allah has a night which is better than a thousand months. He who is deprived of its good has indeed suffered deprivation."
Beloved sister in Islam, the guidance of the authentic hadith of the Messenger of Allah (saws) quoted above is that in the holy month of Ramadan, the Shayaateen are chained. It simply means that their power to inspire evil and mischief is reduced to a considerable extent as compared to the other times of the year. It does not in any way mean that the rebellious Shayateen are destroyed or stopped completely from creating their mischief.
In light of the above quoted hadith, it is evident that the Shayateen are chained and their power to inspire evil and create mischief is reduced by a considerable extent for the whole month of Ramadan, and not only during the fasting hours.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
