A humble attempt to find an answer to the for ever perplexing question – WHY DID GOD HAVE TO CREATE SATAN ? WILL NOT THE WORLD BE A BETTER PLACE WITHOUT THIS DEVIL ? Before making a humble attempt to answer this question, I take the liberty of quoting from the Preface of a book by Seyyed Hossein Nasr : ‘wa ma tawfiqa illa bi Llah’ I am fully aware of the limit of my knowledge, and submit in humility to not understanding fully, the unfolding of Allah’s WILL, and although I am making an attempt, based on my readings to answer to some extent - ALLAH KNOWS BEST.

The modern day Media is fully engrossed and occupied with the antics of the wily Devil. but makes the most noise. in any place around the world. from early dawn of human history. finding place of prominence in all religions. and the wiles of the Devil . over shadowing GOD and generating more TRP ratings. He is like an empty vessel. Open any News Paper in the morning. in many instances.SATAN is a universal figure. and belief systems of the world.

Likewise . The DEEN of RasulAllah (SA) is complete in all its essence. Our DEEN thus provides an answer to the perplexing questions.My niyat in showing the red rag to the raging bull. Islam affirms the teachings of all the Prophets beginning from Nabi Adam (SA) which were complete in each Nabi’s particular Daur. is to show the depth of knowledge. nothing more need be added. but just like a child growing in a mother’s womb. growing and getting complete in relation to the 2nd month and so on. In the 6th Month the child is fully formed. say for the 1st month. complete in itself. till the day of Qayamah. getting nourishment and stated to be complete. and Haqiqat Truths . the Shariat of RasulAllah (SA) the 6th Ntiq is complete. contained in our DEEN. .

is viewed. you will understand. Zechariah 3:1-7 Isaiah 45: 6-7 Job 9: 22-23 Chronicles 21: 1 There is no dualism here between two powerful supernatural entities: an all-good God and an all-evil Satan. At most. How complete is our DEEN. he is described as a henchman who carries out God's evil instructions. as one of the members of God’s inner council – type of a chief prosecutor. and when you will finally read about Shaitan in Islamic belief system. and in the Hebrew scriptures.The word SATAN (one who opposes ) is of Hebrew origin. God is portrayed as performing. This than is my main purpose) . ( Musa Nabi is the 4th Natiq – the shariat has to evolve.the arch enemy of God and of humanity. There are no passages within the older parts of the Hebrew Scriptures where Satan is portrayed as an evil devil . it has to grow to attend completeness. both kind and evil deeds. directly and indirectly.

this can be seen.In Zoroastrianism (although not a monotheism) a belief system predating Christianity. Ahura Mazda had all the attributes of Judaism’s Jehovah. The duality between an all Good God and an all Evil Satan is firmly established Corinthians : 11 : 12-14 12:7 Revelation : 12:9 From being the henchman of God (Hebrew scriptures) he is . In the writings of Paul and other apostles. Angra Manyu ( Ahriman – Satan) God of Evil was regarded as a twin brother of Ahura Mazda – Angra Manyu who with his legions of demons. Now in Christianity – Isa Nabi (SA) the 5th Natiq the character and range of the activities of Satan (deceiver) is further developed. was in perpetual fight with his brother. However.

that he creates come Shaitan ? From whence did he ‘pop’ up ! He was not there when Mubde Haq Subhanu created the A’lam e Roohani – Surah Ya Sin 36:82 “Be!” – and it is ! This should be believed – this is true TAWHEED .the word God is very limiting in its meaning and essence (as shown in my Tawhid pptx) – OUR DEEN teaches that MUBDE HAQ SUBHANAHU who created the A’lam from ‘nothingness’ did not create Shaitan.duality in Christianity.However. Now this is Haqiqat. ALLAH is good personified . So as the Shariat evolves – deputy of Jevovah in Judiasim Evil brother of Ahura Mazda in Zoroastrianism to deceiver . stands completed in Islamic teachings. But the question remains . it is most improbable. OUR DEEN provides a very satisfying answer to the questions – Why did GOD have to create Shaitan – Iblis ? The simple answer is GOD . the true reality of Shaitan .

Do they ring a bell The bread you bought was fresh .think – think – THE ANSWER IS THERE WAITING FOR YOU The fresh bread you bought home Your fresh bread becomes stale .Before going further .from where did the fungus come. the baker had not added it while baking !! The iron you purchased was perfect – from where did the rust come ? From where did the fungi come on a fresh plant ? How was a good living cell was attacked by bacteria in the same body ? Just think . let us just look at the pictures .


So if one has surely reflected it is crystal clear that Shaitan is not a creation of Mubde Haq Subhanu. to make the point very clear that our DEEN teaches us that Shaitan is not the creation of ALLAH – Mubde Haq Subhanahu ‘lasai thakee awwal ma’ Khaliq yeh kari khilqat teh sarve barabar tha. In the Tawhid pptx I have referred to the Nashihat of Syedi Sadikali Saheband I feel in this context let me again refer to it. thee sarve ni ek surat’ NOW Based on my readings and Bayan Mubarak of Aqa Moula (TUS) I will try to answer the question about the emergence – that is a better and more appropriate word of SHAITAN SIMPLY PUT .

Haqiqat in the most simplest of words. The Spiritual Adam (Adam e Roohani) remains motionless in a state of amazed bedazzlement before himself. and if ones pursuit to acquire I’lm is true and pure .So our DEEN our SHARIAT contains the Haqiqat truths . He refuses the ‘limit’ (hadd) preceding him of THE SECOND INTELLIGENCE Aqa Moula (TUS) farmave chhe ‘ ruthi gaya’ Sayedi Sadik Ali Saheb refers to this in his Nashihat and now let me refer to the bayan mubarak of Aqa Moula (TUS) just reflect . In order to reach the FIRST INTELLIGENCE So very easy to understand . . magar gunah to’ thaya how profound. attending sabaks is the right path.aa haqiqat na saheb taeed thi in very simple and understandable language farma ve chhe: ‘ghana barik gunah thaya – ishq ma gunahthaya. just for a few seconds dwell on this Haqiqat –gunah but in the Ishq of attaining closeness.

winning victory over himself.THE ANGEL ADAM the DEMIURGE ‘aa jismani duniya na A’shir ne hawala chhe’ Book Ref: The History of Islamic Philosophy – Henry Corbin ‘When the Tenth Inteeligence (Moulana A’shir) rouses himself from the stupor . teh aap rahya kaseer’ A’SHIR E MUDABEER . he hurls away from him the demonic shadow of Iblis (Shaitan) into the lower world He threw away from him the derived sense of self – which is not the true self into the lower world that is the Total Body – the Jismul Mutlaq The priori of this manifested in Haris bin Murrah (Shaitan) – the forceful.Now on reading of Syedi Sadikali Saheb’s Nasihat we come to understand how the THIRD INTELLIGENCE becomes the TENTH ‘par khaam tassavur thi . This reading has helped in my understanding of the emergence of Shaitan into the lower world of corruption and degeneration It should be understood that Shaitan is the false self – the deceiver. one who has a constant deep seated sense of lack or incompleteness . of not being whole . compulsive and deeply unconscious need to be right.

who repented as they fell from the Pelorama) jo pehla jawab deta to’ girtaj nahee. to how this A’lam – Jismul Mutlaq – The Total Body .Now in several Bayan Mubaraks Aqa Moula (TUS) has made repeated references. Kalemaat Nooraniyah from the 83rd Milad Mubarak Vaaz at Karbala Moulana A’shir ni dawat ne jawab na didho .darkness – murk and gloom) girti waqt jawab didho – Nadim Mustagfeer ( the repenters.the world of degeneration and corruption came about.roshni. aa Alam thee who roohani A’lam taraf pacha valse . woh A’lam to’ noor nu A’lam chhe – waha to’ roshni chhe – inkar kare to’ kem rehvai..noor) chhinaee gayoo. In the Nasihat of Syedi Sadiq Ali Saheb he says: ‘laachaar thayee nakha a’a duniya na khara ma’ JUST REFLECT .‘la’ ( no) kehta rahya to’ la’la (chamak. Huboot (tenebrosity .this than is our Ma’ad and in this zaman Aqa Moula (TUS) is doing the tadbeer. zar zar roya ane Moula ne arz kidhi – Ay Moula A’shir hame jawab dai yeh chiye A’shir farmave chhe ke huboot waqe thase – the fallen souls will have to undergo the process – but the azeemehsan of Moulana A’shir is that he has become the demiurge – Moulana A’shir yeh tadbeer e a’kheer kari .

In Islam – Iblis (Shaitan) and we also know his name Haris bin Murrah is not an agent of God as the Jews believe and is neither the fallen angel as the Christians believe He is the Jinn who had done Ibadaat for eons. The Awaliyah Kirams are fully aware of this demonic shadow.those believers of Tawhid from coming to harm and becoming . but he and his cronies.Baqarah 2:34 Surah Al-Kahf 18:50 When the Spiritual Adam – the Third Arch Angel in Al’am e Ibda. cannot force man to commit evil. How he metamorphosed from good to evil is aptly described in QURAN E KAREEM Surah Al. and with their knowledge and sacrifices . casting away the demonic shadow of Iblis . but because of his EGO and FREE WILL he opted to disobey and transgress. Iblis became Shaitan for no other reason except for using this FREEDOM OF CHOICE for the wrong end. which manifests in each heptad in different human and demonic forms . the Awaliyah Kiram in all satra . protect the mumineen . who becomes the TENTH rises from his stupor.this demonic shadow in the A’lam e Jismani (Total Body) reappears in every cycle of occultation (satra – heptad) and with his offsprings (Zalimin) incites man to evil deeds.

Now this than is AT THE MACRO LEVEL However. we should be aware and protect our selves . is the World of degeneration and corruption. at the micro level. he will never be able to rise to Al’am e Ibda . more cunning minions. and this concerns us. from his legions of more subtle. there is MOULA to guide us and we only need to affirm the TAWHID of ALLAH and ‘valayat ‘ of our MOULA JUST DO IT AS SIMPLE AS THAT . as individuals most. SHAITAN will never feel complete.his mohlat – the space given to him. to keep the fallen humanity bogged down in this murk . resulting from the ‘huboot’ and he does all that is in his power. who appear in many manifestations to beguile us . but it is the azeem ehsan of MOULANA A’ ASHIR that in each present moment. and to lead us astray .
