introduction of satan


Assalam-o-alaikum,
Satan is amongst the creations of the Almighty and is not visible to the human beings. Verse 27, chapter 7 (Al-Araf) from the holy Quran shows that satan is invisible to us.
يَا بَنِي آدَمَ لاَ يَفْتِنَنَّكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ كَمَا أَخْرَجَ أَبَوَيْكُم مِّنَ الْجَنَّةِ يَنزِعُ عَنْهُمَا لِبَاسَهُمَا لِيُرِيَهُمَا سَوْءَاتِهِمَا إِنَّهُ يَرَاكُمْ هُوَ وَقَبِيلُهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لاَ تَرَوْنَهُمْ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا الشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَاء لِلَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ (7:27)
7:27 (Y. Ali) O ye Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you, in the same manner as He got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame: for he and his tribe watch you from a position where ye cannot see them: We made the evil ones friends (only) to those without faith.
 
The basic difference between satan and the human beings is that the satan does not have any flesh and bones on his body. Satan is a spiritual entity who has rebelled against Allah, unlike the human beings. Satan also sleeps eats and drinks like us. Satan is basically evil by nature and hence he does only evil deeds. Satan belongs to the group of jins (devil). This has been mentioned in the holy Quran in verse no.50, chapter Al-Kaif.
Initially satan belonged to the group of jins. Later on he started mingling with the angels and because of his virtuous deeds Allah granted him the permission to enter heaven. When Allah created Adam and ordered the angels to prostrate before him, satan refused to obey Allay due to his sheer arrogance, envy and conceit. He considered himself to be superior to Adam because Adam had been created from clay whereas satan was created from fire. This made Allah cast him out of his mercy. Satan thus got labeled as a disbeliever and was expelled from the paradise, humiliated and disgraced.
