Iblis, The Enemy Of Man

Allah dismissed Iblis from the ranks of angels, for his intentions appeared in the first examination. His selfishness and haughtiness became apparent, so he was stoned and cursed and had no place among angels.

Iblis showed malice and envy towards Adam and his wife, thus he spared no effort to deceive them and to take them out of the garden.

He spoke to himself: “I know how to deceive them. They will listen to my words. I will invite them to eat from that tree, thus Adam will be unhappy. He will be as unhappy as I am. Allah will dismiss him from the garden. Eve will also be unhappy.”
