The Pride of fblis



Allah made Adam and Hawwa. Then He called the angels and said that He had made a man. Who was called Adam (A) And He had made a woman. Who was called Hawwa or Eve, and He wanted them to live on earth.

The angels were very surprised. Men will spoil the earth. They will destroy it. They will fill it with evil and fighting.

But Allah is All-Knowing and All-Wise. He knows all the secrets of heavens and earth. He has made everything and knows the true name of every single thing He has made. Therefore, Allah taught Adam £ui the names of all things.

Allah called the angels. Then He asked the angels to tell Him the names of all things. But the angels did not know the names of all the things.

The angels said to Allah: "We do not know the names of the things You have never told us their names. We know only what you taught us. You are the All-Knowing and Wise."

Then Allah called Adam £uf and asked him to tell the names. Adam told all the names as Allah had taught him. Allah said to the angels: "Bow to Adam(A). All the angels bowed in respect to Adam £uf except one. His name was Iblis.

Allah asked Iblis: "Why don’t you bow to Adam? Why don’t you obey me?" Iblis said: "I am better than Adam. You made me of fire. But You made Adam of ordinary clay." Allah said: "Get away from here. I curse you till the Day of Judgement!"

"Give me respite till the Day of Judgement," begged Iblis. Iblis said, "I will tempt people to sin. And lead them away from the right path." Allah said: "You can tempt people as much as you want. True believers will never listen to you.

They will never get tempted. I will always guide them to do what is right. You will have no power over them.

Allah is the Best Guide. He is the Protector. He guides us to the straight path. He never lets us go astray.
