It was narrated by Ali ibn Muhammad al-Sufi that he said: "I saw Iblis and he asked me: 'who are you?' I replied: 'I am from the children of Adam'. Iblis said: 'La ilha ila Allah. You are from a group of people that claim to love Allah, yet disobey him. And claim to despise Iblis, yet obey him!' I asked: 'who are you?' Iblis said: 'I am the owner of the great name. I am the murderer of Habil. I am the one who slaughtered the camel of Saleh. I am the fire where Ibrahim was thrown in. I am the one who plotted the killing of Yahya. I am the one who took Pharaoh and his men to the Nile. I am the magic that competed with Musa. I am the one who created the calf for the children of Israel. I am the saw that killed Zakariyya. I am the one who rode alongside Abraha during his campaign to destroy the Kaaba. I am the one who gathered the men to fight Muhammad during Uhud and Hunayn. I am the one who placed envy in the hearts of the hypocrites on the day of Saqifa. *I am the saddle on the camel during the battle of Camel*. I am the one who stood in front of the army during Saffin. I am the one who insulted the believers during Karbala. I am the leader of the hypocrites, I am the one who caused the first ones to perish. I will be the one to deviate the latter ones. I am the leader of transgressors. I am Abu Murra, created from Fire, not from clay. I am the one who the Lord of the Worlds became angry with!'
I said: 'By Allah! Tell me of an action whereby I get to seek closeness to Allah (swt)!' Iblis replied: 'Focus your hereafter with the love of ALI IBNE ABI TALIB and hating his enemies. For I worshipped Allah (swt) in his 7 heavens and disobeyed him on His 7 earths, I haven't seen a close angel nor a sent Prophet except that they seek closeness to Allah (swt) through Ali's love'. Then Iblis disappeared, and I entered upon Imam al-Baqir (as) and told him what had transpired, and he said: 'That accursed creature has spoken the truth by his tongue, but disbelieved with his heart'" Source: (Bihar al-Anwar, volume 39, page 181). #ahlulbayt #shia #rafida #islam #follow #14masoomeen #14infallibles #tatbir #caferi #twelver #yaali #yahussain #alevi #qizilbash #shiatali #muharram
