Iblees and His Ilk [Quote – 735]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)

Allah says in the Qur’an, Iblees and his ilk see you the way you cannot see “him.”

Says the Qur’an:

Min Hayithu Laa Tarawunahoo.

Rasulullah, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, says: Shaitan races through your veins like blood.

Says the Hadith:

Majrad Dam!

As a result, part of the challenge of being a Muslim is to be able to recognize Iblees and his Ilk -- Shaitan -- in all their disguises.

The Qur’an and Hadeeth both make it clear that Shayateen -- plural for Shaitan -- come in the form Jinn as well as humans.

So, there are two kinds of Shayaateen: Jinn and Ins.

Ins is human beings whom God created with clay. Jinn is a creature God made with fire.

Iblees, the Shaitan, was a Jinn, says the Qur’an. And he chose to disobey God’s command.

This is how the Qur’an puts it:

Kaana Minal Jinni!
Fa-Fasaqa An Amri Rabbihi!

And the job of the Believers -- Mu’mins, Muslims -- everywhere is to be able to identify both kinds of Shayaateen in their midst in a timely manner and deal with them both effectively.
