Iblis (イブリース, Iburiisu) is a demon in the series.
A djinn made of flame whom, compared to others of his kind, was incredibly pious and praised God to his full extent, which gave him a place in Heaven with the Angels. When God made Adam, He commanded his Angels to bow to His greatest creation, yet Iblis refused, stating "I am better than he: You did create me from fire, and him from clay", which God said "Get you down from it: it is not for you to be arrogant here: get out, for you are of the meanest (of creatures)". (Yusuf Ali translation)
Thus, Iblis was thrown out from Heaven, cursed by God till the Day of Judgement, and Iblis asked for "respite" till the Day the dead are raised, which God granted him respite till the Day, which Iblis said that the Lord "put me in the wrong", "by Your power, I shall lead them all astray", throwing man off "the straight path" till the end, and God stated that if any humans follow Iblis, they shall be thrown into Hell with Iblis, seven Gates for the type of sin the humans have committed. For this reason he is seen as an equivalent to Satan/Lucifer.
