He envies any human being


O mankind! Verily, the Promise of Allah is true.
So let not this present life deceive you,
and let not the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allah.

Surely, Shaitan (Satan) is an enemy to you,

so take (treat) him as an enemy.
He only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire.
Note that Satan is much more of a metaphysical concept in Judaism than Christianity (and, it also seems, Islam).

In brief:
Quote:
Satan in Judaism is not a physical being ruling the underworld, rather, in the Torah, the word Satan indicates “accuser,” “hinderer” or “tempter.” Satan is therefore more an illusory obstacle in one’s way - such as temptation and evil doings - keeping one from completing the responsibilities of tikkun olam (fixing the world). Satan is the evil inclination to veer off the path of righteousness and faithfulness in God.

In brief:
we are the humen are physical being
the angels are physical being
and Satan and his name is Iblis is a jinn and he and his ffspring are physical being
but we dont have the ability to see them but they can see us

also some people have evil attiude and they dont need Iblis to do evil thing


And when We said to the angels:
Make obeisance to Adam;
they made obeisance but Iblis (did it not).
He was of the jinn,
so he transgressed the commandment of his Lord.
What! would you then take him and his offspring for friends rather than Me,
and they are your enemies?
Evil is (this) change for the unjust.

I’m only telling what Jewish theology says so that perhaps you can learn something. I’m not trying to dictate what is and is not and what you should or should not believe.

I, personally, am an atheist, so at the end of the day, it’s all the same to me.

any thing conflict with the final holy book the Holy Quran is wrong
and the Quran contains all things required for this life
and it abrogates the books which came before it and is a witness over them,
We have not neglected anything in the Book, then to their Lord shall they be gathered.

Sometimes I think obsessive/compulsive or autistic people -- maybe un or under-diagnosed because they present in various religious guises -- are attracted to places like this as an outlet for their uncontrollable ruminations. They will robotically repeat the same stuff over and over almost whether or not anyone responds. They are, or at least can be, different from trolls. Not here so much to get a rise out of people as to obey the voices in their heads.
