He said: I am not one to prostrate myself unto a mortal whom Thou hast created out of potter's clay of black mud altered!
He said: Then go thou forth from hence, for lo! thou art outcast. ||
"And lo! the curse shall be upon thee till the Day of Judgment. ..
Then lo! thou art of those reprieved"
Allah sends Iblis to hell for refusing to worship humans and then immediately changes his mind at Iblis' request.
And lo! the curse shall be upon thee till the Day of Judgment.
He said: My Lord! Reprieve me till the day when they are raised.
He said: Then lo! thou art of those reprieved. ||
Till the Day of appointed time. ||
He said: My Lord! Because Thou hast sent me astray, I verily shall adorn the path
of error for them in the earth, and shall mislead them every one, ||
(15:39) "Thou has sent me astray."|
Iblis claims that Allah sent him astray (and Allah doesn't deny it).
(15:39-40) "I ... shall mislead them every one ...
Save such of them as are Thy perfectly devoted slaves."
Iblis will lead humans astray. Only perfect Muslims will be safe from him. The rest will go to hell.
Does Iblis mislead Muslims?
Who leads disbelievers astray?
Hell in the Quran
Save such of them as are Thy perfectly devoted slaves.
He said: This is a right course incumbent upon Me:
Lo! as for My slaves, thou hast no power over any of them save such of the froward as
And lo! for all such, hell will be the promised place.
It hath seven gates, and each gate hath an appointed portion.
Lo! those who ward off (evil) are among gardens and watersprings. ||
(And it is said unto them): Enter them in peace, secure. ||
And We remove whatever rancour may be in their breasts. As brethren, face to face, (they rest) on couches raised. ||
Toil cometh not unto them there, nor will they be expelled from thence. ||
Announce, (O Muhammad) unto My slaves that verily I am the Forgiving, the Merciful, ||
And that My doom is the dolorous doom. ||
(15:50) "My doom is the dolorous doom."|
Doom in the Quran
And tell them of Abraham's guests,
(How) when they came in unto him, and said: Peace. He said: Lo! we are afraid of you. ||
They said: Be not afraid! Lo! we bring thee good tidings of a boy possessing wisdom. ||
He said: Bring ye me good tidings (of a son) when old age hath overtaken me ? Of what then can ye bring good tidings ? ||
They said: We bring thee good tidings in truth. So be not thou of the despairing. ||
He said: And who despaireth of the mercy of his Lord save those who are astray ? ||
He said: And afterward what is your business, O ye messengers (of Allah) ? ||
They said: We have been sent unto a guilty folk, ||
(All) save the family of Lot. Them we shall deliver every one, ||
Except his wife, of whom We had decreed that she should be of those who stay behind. ||
And when the messengers came unto the family of Lot, ||
He said: Lo! ye are folk unknown (to me). ||
They said: Nay, but we bring thee that concerning which they keep disputing, ||
And bring thee the Truth, and lo! we are truth-tellers. ||
So travel with thy household in a portion of the night, and follow thou their backs. Let none of you turn round, but go whither ye are commanded. ||
And We made plain the case to him, that the root of them (who did wrong) was to be cut at early morn. ||
And the people of the city came, rejoicing at the news (of new arrivals). ||
He said: Lo! they are my guests. Affront me not! ||
And keep your duty to Allah, and shame me not! ||
They said; Have we not forbidden you from (entertaining) anyone ? ||
He said: Here are my daughters, if ye must be doing (so). ||
"Here are my daughters, if ye must be doing (so)."
Lot offers his daughters to a mob of angel rapers. (Genesis 19:7-8)
By thy life (O Muhammad) they moved blindly in the frenzy of approaching death.
Then the (Awful) Cry overtook them at the sunrise. ||
And We utterly confounded them, and We rained upon them stones of heated clay. ||
Lo! therein verily are portents for those who read the signs. ||
And lo! it is upon a road still uneffaced. ||
Lo! therein is indeed a portent for believers. ||
And the dwellers in the wood indeed were evil-doers. ||
So we took vengeance on them; and lo! they both are on a high-road plain to see. ||
And the dwellers in Al-Hijr denied (Our) messengers. ||
And we gave them Our revelations, but they were averse to them. ||
And they used to hew out dwellings from the hills, (wherein they dwelt) secure. ||
But the (Awful) Cry overtook them at the morning hour, ||
And that which they were wont to count as gain availed them not. ||
We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them save with truth, and lo! the Hour is surely coming. So forgive, (O Muhammad), with a gracious forgiveness. ||
Lo! Thy Lord! He is the All-Wise Creator. ||
We have given thee seven of the oft-repeated (verses) and the great Qur'an. ||
Strain not thine eyes toward that which We cause some wedded pairs among them to enjoin, and be not grieved on their account, and lower thy wing (in tenderness) for the believers. ||
And say: Lo! I, even I, am a plain warner, ||
Such as We send down for those who make division, ||
Those who break the Qur'an into parts. ||
Them, by thy Lord, We shall question, every one, ||
Of what they used to do. ||
So proclaim that which thou art commanded, and withdraw from the idolaters. ||
Lo! We defend thee from the scoffers, ||
Who set some other god along with Allah. But they will come to know. ||
Well know We that thy bosom is oppressed by what they say, ||
But hymn the praise of thy Lord, and be of those who make prostration (unto Him). ||
And serve thy Lord till the Inevitable cometh unto thee. ||
