“Satan” is a common noun that denotes any creature that is mischievous, misleading, and delinquent, whether it be human or not. “Iblis” is a proper noun and is the ‘Arabic name of the particular satan who deceived Adam.

“Satan” means “banished” or “mischievous”.

AND THUS WE HAVE MADE FOR EVERY PROPHET AN ENEMY – DEVILS [SHAITAN] FROM MANKIND AND JINN, INSPIRING TO ONE ANOTHER DECORATIVE SPEECH IN DELUSION. BUT IF YOUR LORD HAD WILLED, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE DONE IT, SO LEAVE THEM AND THAT WHICH THEY INVENT.

Surah: AL-AN’AM Ayat: 112

Even In Surah Nas, we seek protection from the evil whispers from both of these kind: Jinn and Mankind.

WHO WHISPERS [EVIL] INTO THE BREASTS OF MANKIND – FROM AMONG THE JINN AND MANKIND.

Surah: AN-NAS Ayat: 5-6

In the Arabic language, Shaytan is derived from Shatana, which means the far thing. Hence, the Shaytan has a different nature than mankind, and his sinful ways are far away from every type of righteousness.
