iblees satan

By Mohammad Rafique Etesame
Allah Almighty Says in the Holy Qur’an,” And We created you, then fashioned you, then told the angels, fall ye prostrate before Adam! And they fell prostrate, all save Iblis, who was not of those who make prostration. He said: What hindered thee that thou didst not fall prostrate when I bad thee? (Iblis) said I am better than him. Thou created me of fire while him Thou didst create of mud.
He said then go down hence! It is not for thee to show pride here, so go forth! Lo! Thou art of those degraded.
He said: Reprieve me till the day when they are raised. (from the dead).
He said: Lo! Thou art of those reprieved. He said: Now, because thou hast sent me astray, verily I shall lurk in ambush for then and Thy Right Path.
Then I shall come upon them from before them and from behind them and from their right hands and from their left hands, and thou wilt not find most of them beholden (unto Thee).
He said: Go forth from hence, degraded, banished. As for such of them as follow thee, surely I will fill hell with all of You”. (Al-A’raf: 18)
Because of this, there falls enmity between human being and Satan. He tries his best to mislead everyone from the right path i.e Deen-e-Islam. Anyone who wants to accept Islam and act upon its teachings, and then he creates difficulties in his way. The holy Prophet (PBUH) said that Satan circulated into human being like blood (Al-Mishkat). For example, those who worship Idols don’t see it wrong. They make them by their own hands by stones and then give them the status of gods and believe that they give to their worshipper whatever they want and save them from the miserable condition.
Similarly, they who worship fire, believe the ruler ship of two gods in the universe i.e. god of virtue (Yazdan), and god of evil (Ahrman). The question is: if these people consider their dogmas and deeds incorrect, then they surely set them aside but Satan whispered that their religion and the religion of their ancestors is quite right.
Usually, all the bad works we do, we make Satan responsible for them and say that he misled us and we committed the sins. If a believer does not offer prayers or not keep fasting and does not pay the poor-due and commits adultery etc. He makes Satan responsible for it.
But it is strange that he will free himself from all the allegations made by human being. According to the “Mufassereen” (Commentators) when the matter will be decided at the Day of Resurrection and those of Paradise, would have been entered in it, and those of the Hell, would have been entered in it. Then the dwellers of the Hell will say to Satan,” Because of obeying you, we entered in the Hell, so find any method or make recommendation to Allah Almighty for us so that we may get rid of this painful doom”. Then Satan will make a speech before them saying that he only whispered the evil temptation in their hearts and they obeyed him and committed all the sins by their own will and authority so there is no blame for Satan. The holy Qur’an reveals,” And Satan saith, when the matter hath been decided: Lo! Allah promised you a promise of truth, and I promised you, and then failed you. And I had no power over you save I called unto you and ye obeyed me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can ye help me. Lo! I disbelieved in that which ye before ascribed to me. Lo! For wrong doers is a painful doom” (Ibramim:22).
So, at the Day of Resurrection, everyone will get the reward of his own good or bad works and Satan will not be responsible for them at any rate. Because Allah Almighty Has inspired in the soul of mankind what is wrong and what is right for him as the holy Qur’an reveals,” And a soul Him Who perfected it.
And inspired it (with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (What is) right for it.
He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow.
And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it” (Ash-Shams:10). The accountability at the Day of Resurrection will be held on the basis of his deeds not on mere the whispering of Satan. It is the time now for us to check our works whether they are according to the light of Shariah or according to the whispering and misleading of Satan?
