Iblīs or Shayṭān (Satan) also known as Abu-l-marrat 'father of bitterness' was the son of Tarnus, the son of Sumas, the son of Jann. Iblis is a jinni who refused to honor Adam. The primary characteristic of the Devil, is that he has no power other than the power to cast evil suggestions into the chests of humans, and jinn, although the Qur'an does mention appointing jinn to assist those who are far from God in a general context. "We made the evil ones friends (only) to those without faith."
According to Arabian lore El-Harith was a young jinn taken prisoner by the angels and raised by them; he went on to become one of their chiefs. After the creation of Adam, God commanded his angels to honor him but El-Harith refused and became a sheytan or devil, and he became the father of the sheytans.
What the Prophet said of Iblees, in the following tradition, applies to the evil Jinn over whom he presides: - His chief abode [among men] is the bath; his chief places of resort are the markets, and the junctures of roads; his food is whatever is killed without the name of God being pronounced over it; his drink, whatever is intoxicating; his muëddin, the mizmár (a musical pipe; i.e. any musical instrument); his kur-án, poetry; his written character, the marks made in geomancy; his speech, falsehood; his snares are women.
An alternative name for the main deity in the tentatively Indo-European pantheon of the Yazidi, Melek Taus (Peacock King), is Shaitan. However, rather than being Satanic, Yazidism is better understood as a remnant of a pagan Middle Eastern Indo-European religion, and/or a ghulat Sufi movement founded by Shaykh Adi. The connection with Satan, originally made by Muslim outsiders, attracted the interest of 19th century European travelers and esoteric writers.
