    wa alaykum,

    (Iblis) said: "O my Lord! because Thou hast put me in the wrong, I will make (wrong) fair-seeming to them on the earth, and I will put them all in the wrong,- "Except Thy servants among them, sincere and purified (by Thy Grace)." (Allah) said: "This (way of My sincere servants) is indeed a way that leads straight to Me. "For over My servants no authority shalt thou have, except such as put themselves in the wrong and follow thee."And verily, Hell is the promised abode for them all." (15:39-43 - Noble Quran)

    And Satan will say when the matter has been concluded, "Indeed, Allah had promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you, but I betrayed you. But I had no authority over you except that I invited you, and you responded to me. So do not blame me; but blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid, nor can you be called to my aid. Indeed, I deny your association of me [with Allah] before. Indeed, for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment." (14:22 - Noble Quran)

    So shaytan only has the ability to call people away from Allah ta'ala, so anyone who follows him will go to hell.

    wa salam.

    Since Iblis refers to a type of jinn, it does not actually possess any power. Jinn are conceptual, mythological creatures that do not in fact exist.

    he only has the power in which Allah gives him.. which is really nothing

    He isnt a God with magic.

    All he can do is whisper suggestions to us to do bad.. its whats in side us whether we choose to go with the bad or remain good..

    In Islam, Satan has no power and his plots are ever so feeble.

    Christianity is the truth, not asslam.
