Missionary Mishaps: Iblis the Angel!?

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

It’s often seen as a ‘contradiction’ that an angel (angels have no freewill in Islamic theology), Iblis (may Allaah’s curses be upon him) was able to disobey God as is recorded in the Qur’aan. The reality is however, that Iblis (may Allaah’s curses be upon him) was counted as an angel because he only did acts that the angels would do, so great was his outward piety. However, the Qur’aan mentions that he is a Jinn (a being with freewill), and this he was able to disobey God, something an angel in Islam can’t do. A brother who’s a part of a group I occasionally have discussions in, had this experience:


If only the missionary had read more of the Qur’aan.
