Azazil begins as an Arrogance, ends up being a Cursed Creature

By Unknown - February 21, 2018

`Azâzîl (Arabic: عزازل 'Azāzīl, English: Azazel, Izazil) is the real name of the Devil  who is the father of the jinn, while other opinions say that Satan's real name is al-Harith. According to Islamic law `Azâzîl is the leader of the shaitan groups of the jinns and humans.

Here are some information and information from the Qur'an about jinn & Azazil:

 بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful

١٣٠  يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنْسِ أَلَمْ يَأْتِكُمْ رُسُلٌ مِنْكُمْ يَقُصُّونَ عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِي وَيُنْذِرُونَكُمْ لِقَاءَ يَوْمِكُمْ هَٰذَا ۚ قَالُوا شَهِدْنَا عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِنَا ۖ وَغَرَّتْهُمُ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا وَشَهِدُوا عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِهِمْ أَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا كَافِرِينَ
130. Yeaa people of the jinn and of men, have not the apostles of yourselves come unto you, who have given unto you my verses and warned you against your meeting with this day? They say: "We bear witness against ourselves", the life of the world has deceived them, and they bear witness to themselves, that they are the disbelievers.
QS. Al An'am (6) : 130

٢٧  وَالْجَانَّ خَلَقْنَاهُ مِنْ قَبْلُ مِنْ نَارِ السَّمُومِ
27. And We created the djinni before (Adam) from a very hot fire.
QS. Al Hijr (15) : 27

٥٠  وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ الْجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّهِ ۗ أَفَتَتَّخِذُونَهُ وَذُرِّيَّتَهُ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِنْ دُونِي وَهُمْ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ ۚ بِئْسَ لِلظَّالِمِينَ بَدَلًا
50. And when we said unto the angels, Thy prostration to Adam, and thou shalt fall down except the devil: he is of the Jinn, and he disobeys the command of his Lord: shall ye take him and his princes as a leader besides Me , and they are your enemies, how evil is a devil in place of Allah for those who do wrong.
QS. Al Kahf (18) : 50

٩  وَأَنَّا كُنَّا نَقْعُدُ مِنْهَا مَقَاعِدَ لِلسَّمْعِ ۖ فَمَنْ يَسْتَمِعِ الْآنَ يَجِدْ لَهُ شِهَابًا رَصَدًا
9. Indeed, we were able to occupy certain places in the heavens (sky) to hear (hear) the news. But now whoever (tries) to hear-hear (like that) will certainly encounter a fire arrow that is lurking (to burn it).
QS. Al Jinn (72) : 9

١١  وَأَنَّا مِنَّا الصَّالِحُونَ وَمِنَّا دُونَ ذَٰلِكَ ۖ كُنَّا طَرَائِقَ قِدَدًا
11. And verily among us are righteous among us who are not. We are taking different paths.
QS. Al Jinn (72) : 11

The verses of the Qur'an above provide information to us :

  • that in the Jin people there are good but there are also infidels, 
  • the Apostles of the jinns and humans, 
  • the JIn created before Adam (Father of Modern Man), 
  • the nation Jin ever occupying several places in the sky, 
  • Iblis/Satan is a disobedient jinn.
The name Azazil can be found in several books of commentary, including in the Tafseer of Ibn Kathir, (Mujallad I-1/76 - 77), Tafsir Al-Khozin - Tafsir Al-Baghowi (I-1/48).

٣٠  وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً ۖ قَالُوا أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَنْ يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاءَ وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَ ۖ قَالَ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

30. Remember when your Lord said to the Angels: "Behold, I will make a Caliph in the earth". They said: "Why do you want to make the (Caliph) on earth the one who will make the damage to him and shed blood, whereas we always glorify by praising You and purifying You?" The Lord said: "Verily I know what you do not know".
QS. Al Baqarah (2) : 30

Prior to the creation of Adam, Azâzîl had been Commander of the Angels of War (Sayyid al-Angel), when the jinn on earth were annihilated by the command of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى , for having made the destruction of the earth excessively. Azâzîl  had also been Khazin al-Jannah (Treasurer of Heaven), for several tens of thousands of years before disobeying God.

The word Azâzîl is an ancient Arabic language consisting of two syllables namely Aziz (عزيز) which means honorable, precious, very powerful and (ال) Eil which is the naming of God in Ancient Arabic times. Azâzîl literally means a powerful Creature of God or a God of honor.

Azâzîl consists of al-'azâz which means 'servant' and al-îl which means 'Allah'. The word al-'azâz comes from al-'izzah which means pride or pride or can be interpreted as a creature that carries his pride belonging to God Named so because he is created from fire. The word al-'azâz (العزاز) consists of four letters, the letters' ain, zây, alif, and zây the second. Each of the letters shows the devil's actions, because each name indicates the actions of the owner.

From the letters' ain appears the word 'ulluw' arrogance ', from the letter zây appears word zuhw' attitude of arrogance ', from the alif letter appears the word ibâ' 'insubordination' and istikbâr 'arrogant nature'. Pride, arrogance, defiance, and arrogance are the attributes of the devil. This is the interpretation of the real name of the devil namely Azâzîl.

Azâzîl very many have nicknames such as, "Abu Kurdus", Sayid al-Angel and Khazin al-Jannah. In every heavens he had a very good nickname, until he was finally called "Satan" by God, when he did not want to honor Adam. His nickname is as follows:

The first sky ar-Rafii'ah, the worshiper (al-Abid),
The second sky of al-Maa'uun, the ruku expert (ar-Raki),
The third sky of al-Maziinah, the Master of prostration (as-Saajid),
The fourth sky az-Zahirah, Always humble and submissive to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى (al-Khaasyi),
The fifth sky of al-Muniirah, Always ta'at (al-Qaanit),
The sixth sky of al-Khaliishah, Sincere in worship (al-Mujtahid),
The seventh sky of al-Ajiibah, Simple in using the means of life (az-Zahid).

Prior to Adam's Creation
Before cursed by Allah, Azâzîl has a beautiful face, has four wings, many sciences, most in worship and becomes the pride of angels and he is also the leader of carubiyyuun angels, has a place in some heavens, listening to the secret messages of God and many more .

After Adam's Creation
After he was reluctant to kneel to Adam, God called him the Devil and changed his face to his beautiful, brilliant origin into a boar-like form. God turns his head like a camel's head, his chest like a flesh that protrudes above his back, the face between his chest and head is like an ape's face, his eyes are split along the surface of his face. Her nostrils were open like a cupbreaker's kettle, her lips were like cow's lips, her fangs came out like wild boar fangs and beards were seven.

Azâzîl is given the age until the end of the day. With the promise to mislead as many humans as possible and accompany him in hell later.
Mount Azazil (Jabal Muntar) in the Judean Desert, Syria, 
considered the place where Azazil was thrown to earth.

"In contrast to Christianity and Judaism, Islam does not recognize the term "Fallen Angel". Azazil who later earned the epithet of Satan, was the ancestor of Jin, like Adam's ancestor Man. The djinn are creatures created by God from 'smokeless fire', while angels are created from light."
