Iblis and Shaitans

[2:34] And when We said to the angels: Make obeisance to Adam they did obeisance, but Iblis (did it not). He refused and he was proud, and he was one of the unbelievers.

[2:168] O men! Eat the lawful and good things out of what is in the earth, and do not follow the footsteps of the Shaitan; surely he is your open enemy.

[2:169] He only enjoins you evil and indecency, and that you may speak against Allah what you do not know

[2:208] O you who believe! enter into submission one and all and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan; surely he is your open enemy.

[2:268] Shaitan threatens you with poverty and enjoins you to be niggardly, and Allah promises you forgiveness from Himself and abundance; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.

[4:117] They do not call besides Him on anything but idols, and they do not call on anything but a rebellious Shaitan.

[4:118] Allah has cursed him; and he said: Most certainly I will take of Thy servants an appointed portion:

[4:119] And most certainly I will lead them astray and excite in them vain desires, and bid them so that they shall slit the ears of the cattle, and most certainly I will bid them so that they shall alter Allah's creation; and whoever takes the Shaitan for a guardian rather than Allah he indeed shall suffer a manifest loss.

[4:120] He gives them promises and excites vain desires in them; and the Shaitan does not promise them but to deceive.

[4:121] These are they whose abode is hell, and they shall not find any refuge from it.

[7:27] O children of Adam! Let not the Shaitan cause you to fall into affliction as he expelled your parents from the garden, pulling off from them both their clothing that he might show them their evil inclinations, he surely sees you, he as well as his host, from whence you cannot see them; surely We have made the Shaitans to be the guardians of those who do not believe.

[15:28] And when your Lord said to the angels: Surely I am going to create a mortal of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape.

[15:29] So when I have made him complete and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down making obeisance to him.

[15:30] So the angels made obeisance, all of them together,

[15:31] But Iblis (did it not); he refused to be with those who made obeisance.

[15:32] He said: O Iblis! What excuse have you that you are not with those who make obeisance?

[15:33] He said: I am not such that I should make obeisance to a mortal whom Thou hast created of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape.

[15:34] He said: Then get out of it, for surely you are driven away:

[15:35] And surely on you is curse until the day of judgment.

[15:36] He said: My Lord! Then respite me till the time when they are raised.

[15:37] He said: So surely you are of the respited ones

[15:38] Till the period of the time made known.

[15:39] He said: My Lord! Because Thou hast made life evil to me, I will certainly make (evil) fair-seeming to them on earth, and I will certainly cause them all to deviate

[15:40] Except Thy servants from among them, the devoted ones.

[15:41] He said: This is a right way with Me:

[15:42] Surely, As regards My servants, you have no authority ,over them except those who follow you of the deviators.

[15:43] And surely Hell is the promised place of them all:

[16:99] Surely he (shaitan) has no authority over those who believe and rely on their Lord.

[16:100] His authority is only over those who befriend him (Shaitan) and those who associate others with Him (Allah).

[17:53] And say to My servants (that) they speak that which is best; surely the Shaitan sows dissensions among them; surely the Shaitan is an open enemy to man.

[17:61] And when We said to the angels: Make obeisance to Adam; they made obeisance, but Iblis (did it not). He said: Shall I make obeisance to him whom Thou hast created of dust?

[17:62] He said: Tell me, is this he whom Thou hast honored above me? If Thou shouldst respite me to the day of resurrection, I will most certainly cause his progeny to perish except a few.

[17:63] He said: Be gone! For whoever of them will follow you, then surely hell is your recompense, a full recompense:

[17:64] And beguile whomsoever of them you can with your voice, and collect against them your forces riding and on foot, and share with them in wealth and children, and hold out promises to them; and the Shaitan makes not promises to them but to deceive:

[17:65] Surely (as for) My servants, you have no authority over them; and your Lord is sufficient as a Protector. [

[18:50] And when We said to the angels: Make obeisance to Adam; they made obeisance but Iblis (did it not). He was of the jinn, so he transgressed the commandment of his Lord. What! Would you then take him and his offspring for friends rather than Me, and they are your enemies? Evil is (this) change for the unjust.

[22:3] And among men there is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge and follows every rebellious Shaitan;

[22:4] Against him it is written down that whoever takes him (Shaitan) for a friend, he shall lead him astray and conduct him to the chastisement of the burning fire.

[22:52] And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet, but when he desired, the Shaitan made a suggestion respecting his desire; but Allah annuls that which the Shaitan casts, then does Allah establish His communications, and Allah is Knowing, Wise,

[22:53] So that He may make what the Shaitan casts a trial for those in whose hearts is disease and those whose hearts are hard; and most surely the unjust are in a great opposition,

[26:221] Shall I inform you (of him) upon whom the Shaitans descend?

[26:222] They descend upon every lying, sinful one,

[26:223] They incline their ears, and most of them are liars.

[26:224] And as to the poets, those who go astray follow them.

[26:225] Do you not see that they wander about bewildered in every valley?

[26:226] And that they say that which they do not do,

[34:20] And certainly the Shaitan found true his conjecture concerning them, so they (wretched) follow him, except a party of the believers.

[34:21] And he has no authority over them, but that We may distinguish him who believes in the hereafter from him who is in doubt concerning it; and your Lord is the Preserver of all things

[35:5] O men! Surely the promise of Allah is true, therefore let not the life of this world deceive you, and let not the arch-deceiver (Iblis) deceive you respecting Allah.

[35:6] Surely the Shaitan is your enemy, so take him for an enemy; he only invites his party that they may be inmates of the burning fire.

[36:59] And get aside today (at Qayamah), O guilty ones!

[36:60] Did I not charge you, O children of Adam! That you should not serve the Shaitan? Surely he is your open enemy,

[36:61] And that you should serve Me; this is the right way.

[36:62] And certainly he led astray numerous people from among you.

What! could you not then understand?

[37:6] Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars,

[37:7] And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan.

[37:8] They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side,

[37:9] Being driven off (from the heavens), and for them is a perpetual chastisement,

[37:10] Except him who snatches off but once, then there follows him a brightly shining flame (bolt)

[37:11] Then ask them whether they (demons) are stronger in creation or those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them of firm clay.

[38:71] When your Lord said to the angels; Surely I am going to create a mortal from dust:

[38:72] So when I have made him complete and breathed into him of My spirit, then fall down making obeisance to him.

[38:73] And the angels did obeisance, all of them,

[38:74] But not Iblis: he was proud and he was one of the unbelievers.

[38:75] He said: O Iblis! What prevented you that you should do obeisance to him whom I created with My two hands? Are you proud or are you of the exalted ones?

[38:76] He said: I am better than he; Thou hast created me of fire, and him Thou didst create of dust.

[38:77] He said: Then get out of it, for surely you are driven away:

[38:78] And surely My curse is on you to the day of judgment.

[38:79] He said: My Lord! Then respite me to the day that they are raised.

[38:80] He said: Surely you are of the respited ones,

[38:81] Till the period of the time made known.

[38:82] He said: Then by Thy Might I will surely make them live an evil life, all,

[38:83] Except Thy servants from among them, the purified ones.

[38:84] He said: The truth then is and the truth do I speak:

[38:85] That I (Allah) will most certainly fill hell with you (Iblis) and with those among them who follow you, all.

[41:36] And if an interference of the Shaitan should cause you mischief, seek refuge in Allah; surely He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

[43:36] And whoever turns himself away from the remembrance of the Beneficent Allah, We appoint for him a Shaitan, so he becomes his associate.

[43:37] And most surely they (shaitans) turn them away from the path, and they think that they are guided aright:

[43:38] Until when he comes to Us, he says: O would that between me and you there were the distance of the East and the West; so evil is the associate!

[43:62] And let not the Shaitan prevent you (from Sirat Al-Mustaqeem); surely he is your open enemy.

[58:10] Secret counsels are only (the work) of the Shaitan that he may cause to grieve those who believe, and he cannot hurt them in the least except with Allah's permission, and on Allah let the believers rely.

[59:16] Like the Shaitan when he says to man: Disbelieve, but when he disbelieves, he says: I am surely clear of you; surely I fear Allah, the Lord of the worlds.

[59:17] Therefore the end of both of them is that they are both in the fire to abide therein, and that is the reward of the unjust.
