satan, does saitan has authority over us ?

Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
dear brothers and sisters,  as we know that there are many people who do evil things and when we asked them why you are doing so they simply say due to the satan or saitan meaning saitan diverted them from the right towards wrong therefore they do so .
But what is the reality,
  • do actully satan or saitan diverted them or they do so because of their own ignorance ?
  • Does saitan has authority over us ?
  • Do They can change our discussions ?
  • What saitan suggest us for doing ?
  • Is satan is our friend or enemy ?
So let us know about that in the light of authentic teaching of Prophet Muhammadﷺ and Glorious Qur’an

do not follow the footsteps of Saitan –
An-Nur 24:21

يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَا تَتَّبِعُوا۟ خُطُوَٰتِ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنِۚ وَمَن يَتَّبِعْ خُطُوَٰتِ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنِ فَإِنَّهُۥ يَأْمُرُ بِٱلْفَحْشَآءِ وَٱلْمُنكَرِۚ وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُۥ مَا زَكَىٰ مِنكُم مِّنْ أَحَدٍ أَبَدًا وَلَٰكِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُزَكِّى مَن يَشَآءُۗ وَٱللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

O you who have believed, do not follow the footsteps of Satan. And whoever follows the footsteps of Satan –  indeed, he enjoins immorality and wrongdoing. do not follow the footsteps of Satan if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, not one of you would have been pure, ever, but Allah purifies whom He wills, and Allah is Hearing and Knowing.

 Satan has no authority over us –

Al-Hijr 15:42

إِنَّ عِبَادِى لَيْسَ لَكَ عَلَيْهِمْ سُلْطَٰنٌ إِلَّا مَنِ ٱتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ ٱلْغَاوِينَ

Indeed, My servants –  no authority will you have over them, except those who follow you of the deviators

In the above verses of the glorious Quran Almighty Allah informed us –

Do not follow the foot steps of satan or saitan because they only enjoiend to you immorality and wrongdoing
And we are safe from his influenced only because of Allah’s favor and Allah’s mercy upon us,and Allah purifies (give guidance ) whom he will
And the most important thing is that satan or saitan has no authority over us whatever wrong activities we do, we do because of our ignorance.
Satan have authority only over those who follow their footsteps by themselves .
