Who is Satan
Ibelees (Satan) –the biggest enemy of mankind was once among st the angels of ALLAH before he disobeyed Him. When ALLAH created Adam (A.S) and ordered all the angels to prostrate before Adam (A.S). All the angels respectfully prostrated before Adam (A.S) except Ibelees who proudly rejected to do so. This was the disobedience on the part of Ibelees that made him deserving of the name “Ibeless”. Due to this sin, ALLAH turned him out of His court and pass judgment for his punishment. On the other hand Satan asked ALLAH to grant him time till the Day of Judgment and declared that because ALLAH had turned him out of his court and had punished him because of man, he would always be a rival to man and try to misguide them from the path of Islam.
“Satan said: ‘I will go on trapping your slaves as long as their souls are still in their bodies.’ ALLAH said: ‘I will keep forgiving them with my majesty, as long as they keep praying me for pardon.’” [Musnad Ahmad, 3: 29]
In the light of above Hadith, ALLAH has promised mankind to forgive their sins which they have committed due to deception of Satan if they pray for forgiveness in front of ALLAH and repent. Being a Muslim we should also take some measures in our daily life to protect our self from the ruses of Satan.
