Question : In the Quran, we are told that God ordained the angels to prostrate in front of Adam all of them prostrate except Iblis who was among the transgressor. My question is was Iblis an angel or a jinni if he was a jinni how did he fit in the midst of the angels
Answer : Iblis is amongst jinn as declared in the verse: â€œWe said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam, and they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He was of the jinn, so he rebelled against his Lord's command. Will ye choose him and his seed for your protecting friends instead of Me, when they are an enemy unto you? Calamitous is the exchange for evil-doers.â€. 50:18. Iblis used to worship almighty Allah until he decided to become arrogant and looked down on Adam and refused the orders of the almighty Allah of prostrating to him.
Question : Regarding Ibless, the Shaitan how is just one jinni able to misguide billions of humans how is he so powerful?
Answer : What appears from the meaning of the Quranic verses is that there are Satan(s) and not only one Satan.
