Lord had many angels. He had
given Lucifer or Harith as the
Koran tells, the fairest figure, pointed him out to a key
leading position among the angelic host. He became the ruler
of this worlds heaven. Lucifer did his work so well, that
the Lord made him the treasurer of Eden.
belonged to a tribe among the angels, witch were created
by the fire of the desert wind. All angels were created
of fire, this tribe was also. But it was made out of a flame
of fire without smoke, one who shows in the outer edge of
the fire. That explain that they were a little bit special
than the other angels. The Koran calls them the Djinns.
So, the Lord created the earth. The first to live there
were the Djinns.
they couldn't keep peace between each other. The Djinns
killed each other. and the blood covered the ground and
soiled it. The Lord sent Lucifer with the angelic host.
Lucifer lead the war against the Djinns and drew them away,
out to the islands and the mountains were nobody traveled.
was the time were Lucifer felt that he was something above
the others. He had done a great achievement and that he
wouldn't forget. Then the Lord created man out of mud, because
someone had to live in this paradise that he had made and
that the Djinns had to leave. The Lord ordered all angels
to obey this human, whom he called Adam.
But Lucifer refused. He said: "Shall I, who is one
of the most powerful angels, obey this human, which you
made of mud?" The Lord replied: "But I made him
with my hands? You shall obey all that I have created!"
Lucifer was proud and said: "I'm superior to him, I'm
older that him and I'm created by of more powerful source.
You created me of fire, and him of mud."
kind of talk the Lord didn't want hear. He got both angry
and sour, because the way Lucifer spoke he also meant that
he didn't worship the Lord and neither admired his work.
And that offended the Lord and his coquetry, because the
Lord had never ever tolerated other gods in addition to
him self. The Lord acclaimed therefore: "Your arrogance
and disobedience will be your fall. From now on I deprive
you all your good!" And then he preapitated Lucifer
into the abyss. Lucifer became Satan,
Harith became Iblis by the Koran. He became the evil force
of both the Christians and the Islamic religion. The humans
blamed him for all their mistakes.
