(Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar’s live interview dated August 27, 2010)
Except Iblis. He disdained to be one of the prostrators. (Surat al-Hijr, 31)
He said, “Iblis, what is it that prevents you being among the prostrators?” (Surat al-Hijr, 32)
He said, “I will not prostrate to a human being whom You have created out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.” (Surat al-Hijr, 33)
He said, “Get out from here, you are accursed.” (Surat al-Hijr, 34)
“The curse will be on you till the Day of Reckoning.” (Surat al-Hijr, 35)
He said, “My Lord, grant me a reprieve until the Day they are resurrected.” (Surat al-Hijr, 36)
He said, “You are among the reprieved.” (Surat al-Hijr, 37)
We see in the verses satan’s hypocritical and arrogant character, and he foolishly regards himself as superior.
Allah speaks of the Day of Reckoning, while satan speaks of the day they are resurrected. There are two different expressions.
The Day of Reckoning may be a reference to the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Allah knows the truth.
