Does Iblis/Satan mislead Muslims?

Does Iblis/Satan mislead Muslims?

Mohamad Mostafa Nassar



Qur’an (7 :16)

He [Iblis] said: Now because Thou hast sent me astray, verily I shall lurk in ambush for them on Thy Right Path.


He only misleads non-Muslims.

Qur’an (15:39-40)

I [Iblis] verily shall adorn the path of error for them in the earth, and shall mislead them everyone, save such of them as are Thy perfectly devoted slaves.

Qur’an 38:82-83

Then, by Thy might, I [Iblis] surely will beguile them everyone, Save Thy single-minded slaves among them.

Note: The verses do not say that Iblis does not mislead Muslims. The verses say that only few do not get affected by Iblis. The scholars say that among the few are prophets & messengers of God and people of high status of faith.

Almighty Allah is the highest and most knowledgeable, and the attribution of knowledge to him is the safest.

Right from Almighty Allah and wrong from me and Satan

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
