Surah The Night Journey (al-Isra’): Chapter 17 line 60-70

  1. We said to you that your Lord encompasses humanity. We did not make the vision We showed you, except as a test for the people, and the tree cursed in the Quran. We frighten them, but that only increases their defiance.
  2. When We said to the angels, “Bow down before Adam,” they bowed down, except for Satan. He said, “Shall I bow down before someone You created from mud?”

  3. He said, “Do You see this one whom You have honored more than me? If You reprieve me until the Day of Resurrection, I will bring his descendants under my sway, except for a few.”

  4. He said, “Begone! Whoever of them follows you—Hell is your reward, an ample reward.”

  5. “And entice whomever of them you can with your voice, and rally against them your cavalry and your infantry, and share with them in wealth and children, and make promises to them.” But Satan promises them nothing but delusion.

  6. “As for My devotees, you have no authority over them.” Your Lord is an adequate Guardian.

  7. Your Lord is He who propels for you the ships at sea, that you may seek of His bounty. He is towards you Most Merciful.

  8. When harm afflicts you at sea, those you pray to vanish, except for Him. But when He saves you to land, you turn away. The human being is ever thankless.

  9. Are you confident that He will not cause a track of land to cave in beneath you, or unleash a tornado against you, and then you find no protector?

  10. Or are you confident that He will not return you to it once again, and unleash a hurricane against you, and drown you for your ingratitude? Then you will find no helper against Us.

  11. We have honored the Children of Adam, and carried them on land and sea, and provided them with good things, and greatly favored them over many of those We created.

My Interpretation: 

Muhammad is being told about the psychosis of the being known as Iblis, that became the Satan. Iblis [     ]
