Wahb on Iblees: Satan plays with anger like a child with a ball

Mundhir reported: Wahb ibn Munabbih, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Satan, upon whom is the curse of Allah, said: Verily, we lie in wait among the people of impatience and fury, then we play with them as children play with a ball.”

عَنْ مُنْذِر عَنْ وَهْبِ بْنِ مُنَبِّهٍ رحمه الله قَالَ قَالَ إِبْلِيسَ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ إِنَّنَا نَنْظُرُ إِلَى أَهْلِ الْعَجَلِ مِنْهُمْ وَالْحِدَّةِ فَنَلْعَبُ بِهِمْ كَمَا تَلْعَبُ الصِّبْيَانُ بِالْأُكْرَةِ
