I heard a hadeeth that says when a person enters home and mentions Allah’s name, Satan does not enter along with him. Does it mean there is no Satan in the home?
When a person enters home and mentions Allah’s name, that Satan does not enter along with him. If he eats and he does not mention Allah’s name, it is also mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) that Satan will eat along with him.
So this is in reference to Satans in general, and not in specific. There are those who are blocked by going in, but doesn’t mean that they doesn’t exist in the home at all. So eating along with you while you eat is possible, from the other Satans who may already be in your home.
You have television, and so you have Satan busy in the home, right? So do not be surprised. You think you said Bismillah before going into the house, you are wondering where all these Satans coming from? Therefore, it can come from other sources and other people may enter in the house without doing that, and bringing it along with them or bring out their forces along with them.
