Who is Satan?

A person in the Abrahamic religions called the Devil or Lucifer is called Satan, and he or she tries to get people to do bad things or make up things that aren’t true. According to Judaism, Satan is a person who works for God. Satan is usually thought of as a metaphor for the yetzer hara, or “evil inclination.” Christianity and Islam usually think of him as a fallen angel who has turned against God, but God still gives him some power over the fallen world and a lot of demons for a short time. In the Quran, Shaitan, also known as Iblis, is a person made of fire who was banished from Heaven because he didn’t bow down to the newly-created Adam. He makes people want to do bad things by infecting their minds with waswas (bad thoughts).
