A Comparative Study of the Image of Satan in Divine Religions
This research seeks through a descriptive-analytical approach and a comparative method to examine the image of Satan shown in three books; the Avesta, the Bible and the holy Quran and expound the view of the followers of these religions about the positive and negative portrayal and the scale of Satan’s interference and authority. Daeva in the Avesta, as distinct from Satan presented in the Bible and Iblis in the holy Qur’an, is a creature. Satan is presented in the Bible as a creature that does good to man and also as an evil and powerful creature capable of penetrating into man. But, in the holy Quran, Iblis is depicted as an independent creature that selected the path to evil and has no power except tempting man to do commit sins. There are also some narrow conceptions and misconceptions of Satan which developed over time and was instituted in the culture of these religions. Such components like divinity and authority to interfere in creations’ affairs in Zoroastrianism and in carnation, positivism and Satanism in Christianity and theologian-mystic positivism in Islam are among these misconceptions.
