Respected brother Muhammad Rafi,
These are the verses knocking at your discerning mind:
7:12 God said, “What stopped you from being subservient when I ordered you?” Iblees responded, "I am better than he. You created me from fire, and created him from clay.” [Emotions are fiery in relation to sound judgment. The criterion of honor is not lineage, color, caste or nation. It is nothing but good conduct. 49:13]
7:13 (Recall that many of the verses of the Qur’an are allegorical.) God said, “You are dismissed and degraded hence. It is not for you to be arrogant here. Go forth, then! You shall be among the humiliated.”
7:14 He (Iblees) said, "Give me respite till the Day they are raised up.”
7:15 (The request was granted.) God said, "Be among those who are given respite.”
7:16 Iblees said, "Since You HAVE WILLED that I go astray, I will lurk in ambush for them in Your straight path.”
A TRAGIC FACT: You know that Muhammad Yousuf, always a great batsman, was Yousuf Yuhanna a few years ago. If he ever failed in a match then, he never ascribed his failure to QISMAT. The 'Tablighi Jamaat' have dragged him down even below the superstitious teachings of Christianity!
Ah, the N2I!
