Question text Satan was one of the Angels. Angels were not given the power to do things according to their free will, power and intention. How did Satan come to disobey Allah while he was bound to Allah’s commandments and guidance?
categorization: Satan and Jinn
Satan was not from the angels. Qur’an repeatedly says that he is from Jinn. Jinns, like human beings, have been given free will and they are expected, like human beings, to obey the commands of Allah by their free will and power. - Sayyed Mohammed Musawi
