In the beginning satan beguiled Adam to eat the forbidden fruit, telling Adam it will make him immortal. (Satan said: “Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest you should become angels or become of the immortals.”
And he (Satan) swore by Allah(God) to them both (saying): Verily, i am one of the sincere well-wishers for you both.”So he misled them with deception….”. Quran 7:20.
He lied to them and they both ate the fruit only to discover at the end that it was a trick, Satan did this just to make Adam disobey God. Today he is playing same trick on us, only just in a modern sense. Or have you forgotten so soon, what he requested from God? He asked God for respite till the day of Resurrection so he can decieve man/make man disobey God, so God will fill hell with him(satan) and his followers(those who disobey God).
Prove from the Qur’an.
(Satan) said: “Allow me respite till the Day they are raised up(i.e The Day of Resurrection).”
(Allah) said: “You are of those allowed respite.”
(Satan) said: “Because You have sent me astray, surely i will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path. Then i will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them as thankful ones (i.e they will not be dutiful).” In another verse satan said: “……i will surely seize and mislead his offspring,all but a few(those who are dutiful to Allah)”.
(Allah) said (to satan): “Get out from this (Paradise) disgraced and expelled. Whoever of them (mankind) will follow you, then surely I will fill Hell with you all.” Reference Q7:11-25.
Satan has made a promise to decieve human beings inorder to take them to hell with him. Those who follow devil may enjoy his devilish reward; Fame,wealth e.t.c for a fixed time in this world, but afterwards what lay ahead for them is a hot blazing fire.
Many people are blinded by the little trickling and temptation of the devil that they find it hard to avert from the wrong way.
May Allah protect us from the whispers of the devil and from all his helpers among men and jinns(the unseen). And may we be safe from hell fire. AMEEN.
IT IS DISAPPOINTING TO KNOW THAT SATAN REFUSED TO BOW DOWN TO ADAM AS GOD REQUESTED WHILE THE ANGELS DID….YET TODAY HUMANS THE CHILDREN OF ADAM ARE NOW BOWING TO THE SAME SATAN!
