    Q 18;50

وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ الْجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّهِ

Translation “And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord.”——– This states that Satan is from the Jinn , thus having the choice right to obey or disobey . The angels have no free choice , they are created only on obedience , they can only obey ALLAH , thus the Jinn or Human who has the choice right but chooses to obey ALLAH is actually higher in rank than the angels , where Ibless was bragging that he is more obedient to ALLAH than the angels & he was there when ALLAH commanded the angels to prostrate , thus he should have succumbed to ALLAH , however his free choice drove him to depart from ALLAH command due to his arrogance whereby he said Q17;61

أَأَسْجُدُ لِمَنْ خَلَقْتَ طِينًا

translation “He said, “Should I prostrate to one You created from clay” ——-

2)         Iblees continues his arrogance when ALLAH questioned him before punishing him & gave him the right to defend himself but he insisted on his arrogance & disobeying , see


قَالَ مَا مَنَعَكَ أَلَّا تَسْجُدَ إِذْ أَمَرْتُكَ ۖ قَالَ أَنَا خَيْرٌ مِّنْهُ خَلَقْتَنِي مِن نَّارٍ وَخَلَقْتَهُ مِن طِينٍ

Translation “Allah] said, “What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?” [Satan] said, “I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay.”—–

Thus ALLAH punished him & expelled him & degraded him


قَالَ فَاهْبِطْ مِنْهَا فَمَا يَكُونُ لَكَ أَن تَتَكَبَّرَ فِيهَا

Translation “(Allah) said, “Descend from it, for it is not for you to be arrogant therein”—–
