Islam is not Abrahamic religion and Quran contradicts the Torah Part 2
Satan of the Quran is a pious Jenni who was forced into wickedness by Allah Seduction
Part 1 we proved that Adam of the Quran is not the same Adam the Torah talked about, here is the linked if you missed that article
Now in regards to Satan between Quran on one side and Tanakh (all OT books include Torah) on the other, we find that Satan can not be the same creature or being between the both.
Satan of the Torah is a Fallen Angel
Based on OT we can easily conclude that Satan currently is a fallen angel based on Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28, he was created as a righteous archangel named Lucifer but at a point of time before creation of mankind he started to remove his sight from the righteousness, holiness and greatness of God into his own, the spiritual disease of self-righteousness and that is why the accumulative doctrine of true righteousness in the bible is God’s righteousness covering us not our own and that is the bases of salvation. Now back to Satan self-righteousness, greed and arrogance started to creep into him until the point he rebellion against God and we see that clearly in the following scripture
How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
So as you see Satan was created as good, why would a kind and good God create an evil spirit?
But self-righteousness and greed made it’s way into him no one and specially God motivated him into wickedness
After he has fallen and became in rebellion with God he became the accuser against mankind, his plan is to separate between mankind and God (and that leads to hell), refer to book of Job and Zechariah (3:1-2)
Also in the bible we know more about Satan
The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him
Also Jesus Christ described him as the liar and from the beginning murderer of mankind,
for example John 8:44
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Also in Judeo-christian worldview angels either good or fallen are not physical beings but spiritual beings created as servants for mankind according to Hebrews 1:14
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
Satan of the Quran is a Jinni
Satan of the Quran is not a fallen angel, actually not angel at all but a physical mythical creature made of fire and is one of the Jinn based on those ayahs
And [mention] when We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord (Sahih international)
So explicitly the Quran says that Satan origin is not an angel but from the Jinn, and by that we know that God of the Torah is not the same God of the Quran, simply the story tellers are not the same!
So what is the nature of the Jinn in the quran? According to Quran are those spiritual beings or physical beings? The answer are in the following ayahs
And the jinn We created before from scorching fire
And He created the jinn from a smokeless flame of fire.
So according to Quran Satan who is from the Jinn is not a spiritual being like the Torah but a physical being who is made of smokeless flame of fire! Not the same being, again the storyteller of the Torah is not the same storyteller of Quran, Yahweh is not Allah!
Satan is a TAWHID martyr
Sufi Muslims believe that Satan is the Imam and martyr of TAWHID, because Allah commanded him to prostrate to Adam but he refused and insisted on TAWHID and that is he fall from Allah grace, if you don’t believe me this is islamic reference in Arabic go ask you Muslim cleric who knows arabic and show him the following link
So according to Quran Allah commanded that Satan prostrate to Adam but Satan refused, we find that in the following Ayahs
“When thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to create a mortal out of mire, (71) And when I have fashioned him and breathed into him of My Spirit, then fall down before him prostrate, (72) The angels fell down prostrate, every one, (73) Saving Iblis; he was scornful and became one of the disbelievers.”
“And when We said unto the angels: Prostrate yourselves before Adam, they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He demurred through pride, and so became a disbeliever.”
“And (remember) when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am creating a mortal out of potter's clay of black mud altered, (28) So, when I have made him and have breathed into him of My Spirit, do ye fall down, prostrating yourselves unto him. (29) So the angels fell prostrate, all of them together (30) Save Iblis. He refused to be among the prostrate. (31) He said: O Iblis! What aileth thee that thou art not among the prostrate? (32) He said: I am not going to prostrate myself unto a mortal whom Thou hast created out of potter's clay of black mud altered!”
And also refer to ayahs 16:71, 18:50 and 20:116-117
We also notice a big confusion in those Ayahs as following
First: The commandment to prostrate was to all angels, it says “all angles except Satan” so why Satan found himself obliged to prostrate? Remember Satan is not from the angels, Satan is from the Jinn, why would Allah punish him for not doing so? The commandment was to the angels not to the Jinn, or the Quran forgot that Satan is not an angel but Jinn???
A big discrepancy in the Quran and as we know according to Surah 4:82 that makes Quran not from God or Allah
Second: Why would Allah command Satan to commit Shirk???
Seems to me Satan is TAWHID martyr that was pushed into wickedness by Allah, that is why Quranic Satan is claiming that Allah seduced him into wickedness as we will see in the next section
Satan was seduced into wickedness by Allah
Yes Satan said to Allah you seduced me and Allah did not falsify that!
We will present to you the ayah in context so nobody falsely accuse us of taking ayah out of context that is why we will start from Surah 7:10
And assuredly We established you in the earth and appointed for you livelihoods therein; yet little thanks ye return. (10) And assuredly We created you, thereafter We fashioned you, and thereafter We said to the angels: prostrate yourselves before Adam; then they fell prostrate; not so Iblis: he was not of those who fell prostrate. (11) Allah said: what prevented thee, that thou shouldst not prostrate thyself, when I bade thee? He said. I am better than he; me Thou createdest me from fire, and him Thou createdest from clay. (12) Allah said: then get thee down from hence; not for thee is it to be stiff-necked herein. So go thou forth; verily thou art of the abject ones. (13) He said: respite me till the Day they shall be raised up. (14) Allah said: verily thou art of the respited. (15) He said (Satan): because Thou hast seduced me, I will beset for them Thy straight path. (16) Then surely I will come upon them from before them and from behind them and from their right and from their left, and Thou shalt not find the most of them thankful. (17) Allah said: go thou forth from hence, scorned, driven away. Whosoever of them followeth thee, I will of a surety fill Hell with you all. (Eng-Abdul Daryabadi)
In context and without doing any bad exegesis, based on the commandment to prostrate to Adam, Satan accused Allah of seducing him into disobedience and Allah did not falsify that
So how is that Quranic scandal not that obvious to Muslims? Because they have twisted away from the true meaning in the different english translations of the Quran
For example Sahih international replaced “Seduce me” with “put me in error”! Meanwhile we find in arabic that the word “غوى” or “Ghawa” means Seduce, intentionally deceive, mislead and lured
Also another Ayah concurs the same
He said (Satan), “My Lord, since You made me go astray (actually it the same arabic word “Ghawa” meaning seduced), I swear that I shall beautify for them (evils) on the earth, and shall lead all of them astray,
As we see Satan of Quran is pious Jinn made of flames who have been seduced into disobedience by Allah of Islam, definitely not the true Satan that we know according to Torah and bible
Islam is not an Abrahamic religion
