Eblis (also: “Ibleis”) — A jinn, and the ruler of the evil genii, or fallen angels. When God created Adam, God commanded all the angels to worship him. Eblis replied, “Me thou hast created of smokeless fire, and shall I reverence a creature made of dust?” God was angry at this insolence, and turned the disobedient jinn into a Sheytan (devil), and he thus became the father of devils. Eblis features in multiple parts of the Koran.
