|Question: The Qur’an says:
And surely, We created you [your father Adam] and then gave
you shape [the noble shape of a human being], then We told the angels,
“Prostrate to Adam”, and they prostrated, except Iblis [Satan], he refused to be
of those who prostrate. (7:11)
This is also the case in Surah
Baqarah. Why was Iblis supposed to bow before Adam if he wasn’t even an angel
(even if he was given the status of an angel, he wasn’t actually one)?
