وَاِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلٰۗىِٕكَۃِ اسْجُدُوْا لِاٰدَمَ فَسَجَدُوْۗا اِلَّاۗ اِبْلِيْسَ۝۰ۭ اَبٰى وَاسْتَكْبَرَ۝۰ۤۡوَكَانَ مِنَ الْكٰفِرِيْنَ۝۳۴
Waith qulna lilmalaikati osjudoo liadama fasajadoo illa ibleesa aba waistakbara wakana mina alkafireena


Ahmed Ali

Remember, when We asked the angels to bow in homage to Adam, they all bowed but Iblis, who disdained and turned insolent, and so became a disbeliever.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and when we said unto the angels: prostrate yourselves before adam), a prostration of salutation, (they fell prostrate, all save iblis. he demurred through pride) to follow his lord's command. (and so became a disbeliever) after this because he refused to comply with allah's command. it is also said that it was in allah's foreknowledge that satan was to become a disbeliever; as it is said that he was the first unbeliever ever.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and, mention, when we said to the angels, ‘prostrate yourselves to adam’, a prostration that is a bow of salutation; so they prostrated themselves, except iblīs, the father of the jinn, who was among the angels, he refused, to prostrate, and disdained, became proud and said, i am better than he [q. 7:12]; and so he became one of the disbelievers, according to god’s knowledge.
