If he is just a jinn, how does he have the omnipresence and and ability to whisper to and misguide everyone?

How is he still alive after all this time?

How can anyone be so stupid as to condemn themselves to the worst of punishments over something like bowing?

I know some with think these are stupid questions but I am not very knowledgeable and if anyone could provide any clarification I would appreciate it a lot.

You know anything? Enlightenment us about him. 

Most of the people, including believers are saying that satan is bad and he isnt right what he is saying about humans, while acting just as he said that humans will act. Satan is the biggest critic of humans and he is telling the truth, but is considered as a liar.

lt is good to stay within what Quran reveals.

Shatan whispers to you from a place you cannot see. Behind you. From your behind your back.

For any Christians reading this, l am reminded of a sermon/khotbah that a Protestant Reverend gave when l was in grade school. He said, "Satan is the best salesman God(swt) ever created." And then there is John Chapter 8 "Father of Lies"  as a basis for that sermon point.

However, if this thread is referring to the Great Satan, he lies to your face and bombs your head.

Nonetheless, we're told to seek refuge from him, and we're told he's a sworn enemy to mankind. Are we misunderstanding something here?

Seek refuge from his truth, yes.

1. Jinns have abilities that we as humans don't and would probably consider magical. ''Shaytan'' however is a word that can be used for ''The'' devil and also multiple personal devils. I think I read somewhere that, Allah tells us that if a man sins, He makes a personal devil for you specifically for that sin, so that he will keep whispering to you come back to this sin. You will be battling this ''personal'' shaytan for your entire life or untill you give up that specific sin. There isn't just one Shaytan. There is the one who didn't wanna bow down to us and there are his giant army of shayateen.

2. According to the Quran some Prophets lived for 900+ years, if people of flesh can live that long, than other creatures can too.

3. Pride. Pride makes everyone stupid. Satan is pride and pride is satanic (if not cared for properly).

The biggest devil in our time, in retrospect, was the one Ayatollah Khomeiny (rahimuhullah) warned us about.

I seek refuge of Allah from Satan & from being encircled by his whispers. 

Apart from being the source of misguidance for humanity, the existence of this creature (Satan) itself points towards the system of guidance.

Surah Al-Hijr, Verse 42:

إِنَّ عِبَادِي لَيْسَ لَكَ عَلَيْهِمْ سُلْطَانٌ إِلَّا مَنِ اتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ الْغَاوِينَ

Surely. as regards My servants, you have no authority over them, except those who follow you of the deviators.

(English - Shakir)

Surah An-Nahl, Verse 99:

إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَهُ سُلْطَانٌ عَلَى الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ

Surely he has no authority over those who believe and rely on their Lord.

(English - Shakir)

Surah An-Nahl, Verse 100:

إِنَّمَا سُلْطَانُهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ يَتَوَلَّوْنَهُ وَالَّذِينَ هُم بِهِ مُشْرِكُونَ

His authority is only over those who befriend him and those who associate others with Him.

(English - Shakir)

    • The faces tell the truth, right have enjoyed and peaceful smile on their faces while those on the left have shaky faces with the hands on the light that certainly it is not the light of peace or  truth.
    • Thanks for your response just in a logical manner this means if your supposition is true that you are saying your prayers all of the prayers making the face towards black clothed Kaaba and these will all be  makrooh then? No my brother this supposition is not true.I do not consider it makrooh in any manner. wasalam
    • 30- I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘My nation will be resurrected and become united on the Resurrection Day with five flags. The first flag which will come will be the flag of Muawiyah who is the Pharaoh of my nation. The second flag will be that of Amr ibn al-A'as who is the Sameri of the nation. The third flag will be that of Abu Musa Ash’ari who is like the Catholic Archbishop (Al-Jaseliq) of this nation. The fourth flag will be that of Abil A’oar al-Salmy. Yours will be the fifth flag under which all the believers will be gathered while you are their Leader. Then the Blessed the Sublime will tell those four groups: ‘Turn back and seek brightness.’ Then a wall will be erected in front of them which has a door. In it there is mercy who are my friends and followers. Then those who fought me along with the Kharajites , those who broke their pledge and the people misled from the straight path will knock at that door - that is the door of mercy being my followers. They will cry out, ‘Were we not we with you?’ They will reply, ‘Yes, you were. However, you deceived yourselves, you were hindered, you doubted and worldly aspirations deceived you until God's order (i.e. death) arrived and pride (i.e. Satan) deceived you. Today nothing will be accepted of you as recompense.’ Nothing will be accepted of those who rejected faith, either. Your place shall be in the Fire. It will be the place you shall turn to. What a bad destiny that is! Then my nation and my followers will come to drink and they get satiated from Muhammad's (MGB) Heavenly Pool . A cane will be in my hand made of boxthorn wood with which I drive God's enemies away just as people push others’ camels away from drinking water. 31- Indeed I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, “Were it not from the fear of what the Boasters might say about you similar to what the Christians say about Jesus -the son of Mary (MGB), I would have expressed one of your virtues and then anyone who passed by you would take a piece of the dirt from under your feet for healing.” 32- Indeed I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, “The Blessed the Sublime God helped me regarding fear of enemies. I asked God to help you in the same way in this regard.” 33- God’s Prophet (MGB) put his head to my ear and taught me whatever has been and whatever there will be up until the Resurrection Day. The Honorable the Exalted God has let me hear this from His Prophet’s (MGB) tongue. 34- When the Christians challenged the Prophet (MGB), the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following in this regard, ‘If anyone disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge Hath come to thee, say: "Come! let us gather together,- our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!’[3:61] Here ‘ourselves’ referred to me as self of God’s Prophet (MGB) , ‘our women’ referred to Fatimah (MGB), ‘our sons’ referred to Al-Hassan (MGB) and Al-Hussein (MGB). Then the Christians felt sorry and asked God’s Prophet (MGB) to forgive them and he (MGB) forgave them. I swear by Him who revealed the Torah to Moses (MGB), and the Quran to  Muhammad (MGB) that they would have all been transmuted into monkeys and pigs, if they had engaged in invocation with us.” (To be continued.........)
