* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ ٱسْجُدُواْ لأَدَمَ فَسَجَدُوۤاْ إِلاَّ إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ }

And mention when We said to the angels ‘Prostrate before Adam’; so they prostrated except Iblīs who was the father of the jinn — he used to keep company with the angels and worship God alongside them he refused to prostrate before Adam he said ‘I am better than him’ Q. 712.
