Evil promptings are not against Man and are not accountable

Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Hadrat Abdullah-lbn-AbbaS (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated: A man came to the Messenger of ALLAH and said, Sometimes such evil thoughts occur to me that I would rather be burnt to ashes than make a mention of them. The Messenger of ALLAH replied, Praise and thanks be to ALLAH who has turned this affair into one of evil suggestions (i.e. has made those thoughts remain thoughts only) and not turning them into doubt and evil deeds. [Abu Daud, Ma’arif-ul-Hadis]

Hadrat Abu Huraira (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said, People will continue to put absurd questions about How and Why so much so that this foolish question will be asked, “When ALLAH has brought into being all creation, who has created ALLAH? If any one has to face such a question he should put an end to it by saying that I believe in ALLAH and His Prophet.” [Bukhari, Muslim Ma’arif-ul-Hadis]
