Iblis is mentioned 11 times in the Quran by name, 9 times related to his rebellion against God’s command to prostrate himself before Adam. More often occurs the term Shaitan, that is, sometimes related to Iblis. Then God created Adam, He ordered all the angels to bow before the new creation.
Written By: Iblīs, in Islam, the personal name of the devil, probably derived from the Greek diabolos. Iblīs, the counterpart of the Jewish and Christian Satan, is also referred to as ʿadūw Allāh (enemy of God), ʿadūw (enemy), or, when he is portrayed as a tempter, ash-Shayṭān (demon).
Iblis’s Disbelief (Kufr) Iblis is the name of the jinn who defied Allaah and was thus condemned to hell for his remorseless defiance. Iblis is the shaytan (devil) who is the Satan and leader of his minions (other satans among jinn and men) committed to tempting man to transgress against God’s commandments.

|Who is Iblis, and who is Shaitan?||Nov 16, 2017|
Al-Hasan al-Basri said: Iblis was not one of the angels, not even for a single moment. He is the father of the jinn, just as Adam (peace be upon him) is the father of mankind. This was narrated by al-Tabari with a saheeh isnad (authentic chain).
Adam – Iblis (Satan), Man’s Enemy. There were many traditions about Iblis at the time of the Prophet Muhammad . Ibn Masud, Ibn Abbas, and a group of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad said that Iblis had been the head of the angels in the worldly heavens. Ibn Abbas said in one narration that his name had been Azazil,
4 Answers. Ibles is a name of the first Shaytan (who disobeyed Allah’s order to him to prostrate to Adam), he himself has only one (known) name, it’s Ibles. In Quran, the word Shaytan sometimes refers to all Shaytans, and some other times it refers to Ibles himself, it depends on the context.
Although the question doesn’t have a specific answer (I’ll mention the reason below), I will try to make this one clear enough. First to know is generally (not specific to Quran) that: Ibles is the Grand Shaytan, he is a Jinn, and the first one of all Shaytans. He is the one who disobeyed Allah’s order to him to prostrate (يسجد) to Adam (PBUH), while Shaytan is every unbeliever Jinn (i.e, Kafer كافر of Jinn), and so Ibles is one of them. Now it’s argued whether Ibles is the Father of Jinn (just like Adam is the father of Humans), or he is the father of only Shaytans and not the whole Jinn, or he is the father of neither, I will not discuss this here (and I don’t have enough proofs to any viewpoint). Now that’s for generally speaking, BUT FOR Quran there is a specification. In fact in Quran, that rule doesn’t apply, as the word “Shaytan” is mentioned sometimes with the meaning of Ibles, and some other times in the meaning of all Shaytans (i.e, Shaytan Kind). For example, in this Aya, the word الشيطان (Shaytan) means the whole Shaytan Kind, as Ibrahim (PBUH) tells his father not to worship Shaytans (written Satan in the translation): يَا أَبَتِ لَا تَعْبُدِ الشَّيْطَانَ ۖ إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ كَانَ
لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ عَصِيًّا Sahih International O my father, do not worship Satan. Indeed Satan has ever been, to the
Most Merciful, disobedient. Surat Maryam – 44 .
Whereas in this aya, the word الشيطان (Shaytan) means Ibles himself, because he was mentioned before two Ayat (in this aya ), so the word in the following Aya refers to Ibles himself (in fact this has an Arabic Language side, as well): فَأَزَلَّهُمَا الشَّيْطَانُ عَنْهَا فَأَخْرَجَهُمَا مِمَّا كَانَا
فِيهِ ۖ وَقُلْنَا اهْبِطُوا بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ ۖ وَلَكُمْ فِي
الْأَرْضِ مُسْتَقَرٌّ وَمَتَاعٌ إِلَىٰ حِينٍ Sahih International But Satan caused them to slip out of it and removed them from that
[condition] in which they had been. And We said, “Go down, [all of
you], as enemies to one another, and you will have upon the earth a
place of settlement and provision for a time.” Surat Al-Baqarah – 36 So, we conclude that: Shaytan is a word that refers to any unbeliever Jinn, i.e, to a kind of the Jinn. Ibles is a name of the first Shaytan (who disobeyed Allah’s order to him to prostrate to Adam), he himself has only one (known) name, it’s Ibles. In Quran , the word Shaytan sometimes refers to all Shaytans, and some other times it refers to Ibles himself, it depends on the context. (and that’s why the question doesn’t have a specific answer, you should specify an Aya in order to give an answer specific to that Aya). Hope that’s clear enough. This answer depends on this fatwa and many other ones.Best answer · 6Iblees is the Arabic word for the devil iblees is in the Quran so Arabs would understand who the devil was. Shaytan has appeared in the books that Allah sent down even before the Quran, so shaytan is the original name for the devil and iblees is the Arabic interpertation. Iblees comes from the arabic word balasa بَلَسَ which means despair and iblees would literally mean one who causes despair. Shaytan would be equivilant to satan which means one who obstructs, or opposes. In the Quran when Allah says iblees its definitely the devil, when Allah says shaytan it may refer to the devil, an evil creature, whether it be human or jinn, or the shaytans minions. sources: Wikipedia – satan & Wikipedia – devil (Islam)4According to this page , Iblis literally means, ” who with no hope of hayr, who abandon hope from Allah’s rahmat (mercy). ” It is given as a name to who didn’t bow before Adam and being expelled from Allah’s rahmat. That page also mentions it’s name was originally Azazil, but fails to mention reference for this claim. Shaytan literally means ” who is away from Hakk. ” and as a concept it is general name for anything which is away from correct way. As a conclusion, Iblis is shaytan, but not every shaytan is Iblis. Iblis is a proper name, while shaytan is a general concept.3Bi’Issmillahir Rahmanir Rahim,
In easy & simple way, “IBBLISS” is the one senior among jinh who disobey the command from ALLAH & the Shaitan are those who follow the path shown by IBBLISS either they are from INSAAN or from JINNAT.

The Disobedience of Iblis in Sufism. In the Qur’an, Iblis is a supernatural being — either a fallen angel or a diabolical fiery creature known as a jinn. In his disobedience against God and his role as tempter of mankind, Iblis resembles Satan in the Christian tradition. The occasion for Iblis’s disobedience comes immediately following God’s

I always admire your questions 🙂 Allah is not negotiating with Iblis, he did not even accept his request. Most of the scholars see that Allah did not accept Iblis’s request, but Allah postponed him to the “appointed time” (Al-Waqt Al-Malom), which is not the time requested by the devil, Allah did that to increase his affliction and misery, and for other purposes which are the purposes of creating Iblis. It’s mentioned in “Adwaa Al-Bayan” : the devil requested to be postponed to the day of resurrection, but
Allah postponed him to the day of the time appointed , and most scholars say: that is the time of the first Puff. Mentioned in “Fath Al-Kqadeer” : Iblis said: “My Lord! postpone me to the Day when they will be
resurrected.” he said (explains): the devil wanted to not taste death , but it was said “you are postponed until the day of the time appointed.”, he said (explains): At the first Puff the devil will die. “Al-Baghawi” said: “Allah’s reply was not to honor Iblis, but to increase his affliction
and misery.” So there is no shock when you know that he was not granted what he asked for and was not granted more than what Allah created him for.Best answer · 3No, he doesn’t. Ablis had a chance to ask for forgiveness but instead he asked for something that is not benefiting him. God is given.0Ok to answer the question, Is “Allah Negotiating with Iblis”, He really Isn’t “Negotiating with him” but more so “Allowing his former believing slave and/or former slave his one time Dua to be answered”, now the reasons as to why “Allah did that”, those are many, but to name a few. Iblis use to be on Earth prior to the creation of Adam (A.S), and he use to be amongst the best of worshipers on Earth, so much so that “Allah (SWT) granted him entry Into Paradise” and In “Paradise (As there are levels to It), he/Iblis “Worked up the levels In Paradise and was those nearest to Allah” and “he/Iblis was an excellent worshiper/slave” yet In “His heart was a disease that was something that he couldn’t A) Cure and B) Didn’t mind and the disease was “Self Pride”, like “He was legit thinking to himself what anyone would think to themselves If they were legit put Into his spot (Think about It, except for those chosen by Allah such as Prophets), but any normal person would be full of themselves If they got to see Paradise while alive and not having tasted death as of yet, and to be chosen among’st all of “Jinn Kinda on Earth @ the time, and be granted Paradise Is In of Itself a great honor”, so this sickness/disease kept on festering and growing day by day minute by minute hour by hour week/month/year over X amount of years (Allah only knows best how many Years Iblis stayed In this Paradise) but Allah (SWT) created the “Mould of Adam (A.S” and “Didn’t breath life Into him (Adam A.S)” for like 25 years or so, and we all know that the time of Paradise vs the time on Earth Is greatly different. From the Quran ” He regulates all affairs from the heaven to the earth. Then they ascend to Him in a day, the measure of which is a thousand years as you count”.
(32- The Prostration, 5) “To Him ascend the angels and the spirit in
a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years”.
(70- The Heights, 4) So as you can see that’s a long time now multiple that time by 25 years of It (If not more) and Iblis was seeing this “Being (Adam A.S)”, this “Weak Creation, which Allah SWT the Most High was gonna make a Caliphate on the Earth, and that “He the Most High was gonna Honor” and recall that Iblis “Was already full of himself and his accomplishments for achieving such a great deal” I.E being taken from Earth and granted Paradise (While Alive) and being amongst the highest ranked Angels (Even though he was a Jinn) and being amongst those nearest to Allah and “He Iblis was gonna get shat on by this mere creature, this weak/feable thing”? You see so what does “he/Iblis do”, remember he’s a Jinn, he turned to smoke and went Into the life-less body of the Prophet while In Paradise to see (What’s so special about him), and he noticed nothing, and “That’s when he thought to himself”, “I Am Better than he Is”, “I Am Stronger than he Is”, “I will over come my fear and be better/stronger/faster and so forth and so on than he/Adam (A.S) Is”. So when that fruitful day came the day In which Allah (SWT) order’d all the Angels to Prostrate themselves In Paradise, and they all did so (Without a moments thought btw), all except for Iblis, he was like “A black speck on an all white paper” I.E Pretty damn hard to miss, lol and the only ones there standing were Iblis, the Prophet “Adam (A.S)” and the “Lord Most High (Was Above all of them)”, so the “Lord Most High asked Iblis” what Is keeping you from Prostrating oh Iblis” and “he had enough nerve to respond with”, “I am better than him (Adam A.S), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay” (Quran, Surah Al-Aaraf: 12). (To Allah SWT), while “Allah SWT” was the one asking him the question In another sura his response was as follows Allah) said: “O Iblees (Satan)! What is your reason for not being among the prostrators?”
(Iblees (Satan)) said: “I am not the one to prostrate myself to a human being, whom You created from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud” (Quran, Surah al-Hijr:32 – 33)”. As you can see, this cannot be tolerated at all for many MANY reasons. A) Who In the world Is Iblis but a mere creation (Be It one with Powers and Strength and a longer life span than human beings 10 fold that can turn Into smoke and than remake themselves Into a physical form+See us from a distance that we cannot see them and they can be In-front of us and behind us at such a close distance and yet we still can’t see them) yet you get my point, Iblis was a mere “Creature created just like the rest of us” by the “Lord Most High Allah (SWT)” so when he/Iblis made that Arrogant comment after the “Lord Most High/Allah (Over looked his first error)” by actually than continuing to ask him the question “Oh Iblis what Is keeping you from prostrating”, he/Iblis than complies that error by actually responding with the response “I AM BETTER THAN HIM”, lol? Really, yo Iblis (You stupid Idiot), this question wasn’t from your “Father/Brother/Cousin/Friend/Lover/Wife/Kid/Co-Worker/Boss” It was from the “Lord of the WORLDs”, the “MAKER OF EVERYTHING”, the “ONE THAT IS ETERNAL”, “THE MOST MERICIFUL” (You get my point), That was his 2nd mistake, so than Allah SWT tells him (After 2 chances), The Lord said: “Then get out of here; you are rejected, and there shall be a curse upon you till the Day of Recompense.”, now that could’ve been the entire end of this ordeal but “Iblis made a “Dua” and his “Dua was as follows”, Iblis said: “My Lord! Grant me respite till the Day when they will be resurrected.” Now the “Most High didn’t have to grant him/Iblis anything and could’ve punished him right away and done with him” but “The Most Merciful was Just that being The Most Merciful+recall all them years of supplications/worshiping The Most High”, so “Allah allowed Iblis’s Dua” and Allah said: “For sure you are granted respite until the day of a known time.” , Now you think “Allah (The Creator of the Seen and Unseen), “Lord of the Worlds”, needs to “Hagle with his own creation and/or Negotiate with HIS own Slave (Ungrateful one), but you get me point”. Iblis said: “My Lord! In the manner You led me to error, I will make things on earth seem attractive to them and lead all of them to error, except those of Your servants whom You have singled out for Yourself.” to which the “Most High the Ever Lasting Ever Powerful responds to Iblis as such”. Allah said: “Here is the path that leads straight to Me. Over My true servants you will be able to exercise no power, your power will be confined to the erring ones, those who choose to follow you. Surely Hell is the promised place for all of them.” The Most high chose to respond In this fashion because “He Is our Maker” and “Knows that which will happen to us and that which will come after and He knows every minute Intricate detail of our lives, He knows that which Is behind us, before us, beside us, that which we think, say, conceal, that which we shall do In the span of 100 years prior to It coming to pass (As he knows It)” And as such knew that “Iblis, ALWAYS Thought this way, that He AlWAYS believed to be better than EVERYONE” Even when he/Iblis was on Earth, he/Iblis thought he was the Nutz and In Paradise, he Just became more arrogant but aimed to “Conceal It (Even from Allah), which Is retarded, but he tried none-the-less and “Allah knew All Along”, and that’s the same thing when Allah stated to him/Ibliss “your power will be confined to the erring ones, those who choose to follow you. Surely Hell is the promised place for all of them.” . I hope this answers your question.
