Iblis given Respite
Quran 17:62 quotes Iblis thus: He said, "Do You see this whom You have honored, above me? If You give me respite till (the) Day (of) the Resurrection, I will surely destroy his offspring except a few."
Iblis takes an Oath by God
Quran 38:82 informs us that Iblis has sworn by the might of God to mislead us all:
God knows the Wrongdoers
Quran 18:50 reminds of the event of Iblis' refusal to obey God, and 18:51 informs us that God already knew him to be one of the wrongdoers:
And when We said to the Angels, "Prostrate to Adam," so they prostrated except Iblis. (He) was of the jinn, and he rebelled against the Command (of) his Lord. Will you then take him and his offspring (as) protectors other than Me, while they (are) to you enemies? Wretched for the wrongdoers (is) the exchange. Not I made them witness the creation (of) the heavens and the earth and not the creation (of) themselves and not I Am the One to take the misleaders (as) helper(s).
Quran 7:12 informs us of the reason for Iblis' arrogance: (Allah) said, "What prevented you that not you prostrate when I commanded you?" (Shaitaan) said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and You created him from clay."
