      shaytaan and devils is same thing, just different languages.

      Iblees is the name of the chief of the shaytaans.

      Devil and Sheytan are pronouns of Iblis...

      Or in other words - - - Iblis is one specific creature [most probably a genie] who disobeyed Allah and was sent down to earth. there is a whole narration of this event in Quran in Sura baqra....

      Devil and Sheytan are mostly used in-place of Iblis

      Hope it may explain the things...

      And Allah Knows Best

      Re: The difference between Iblis/Devil/Sheytan


      Salam
      whats the difference between devils and sheytan?
      in the qurans that ive read the devil is called iblis!!!
      they talk about devils and satans in the qurans ive read.
      in in some forms the name sheytan came up a couple of times why is that?
      what does sheytan mean?
      Sheytan in arabic means a rebellious person. It can be used for humans as well as Jinns or for Iblees. In Quran Surah Baqara verse 14, Allah gives us a characteristic of hypocrites. He says that
      (2:14) When they meet those who believe, they say, "We, too, are believers", but when they privily meet their evil geniuses(arabic:Shaytan), they say, "Indeed we are with you: we are only mocking at these people".
      Explaining this Ayat, Moulana Maududi says
      *15. 'Satan' in Arabic means refractory, rebellious and headstrong, and is used for both human beings and jinn. Although this word is generally used in the Qur'an for the satans amongst the jinn, it is also used occasionally for human beings possessing satanic characteristics. The context generally explains whether the word 'satan' refers to jinn or to human beings. In this particular case the word 'satans' refers to those influential leaders of the time who were in the vanguard of opposition and hostility to Islam
      SOURCE www.tafheem.net
      Iblees is that particular Jinn and Satan who rebelled against Allah and refused to bow down to Adam. In Quran:
      (2:34) Then We commanded the angels, "Bow yourselves to Adam. "All bowed *45 but Iblis *46 refused to do so; he waxed proud and joined the defiers.
      In short, there is only one Iblees but there are many Sheytans. Iblees is a Sheytan but a Sheytan may not necessarily be Iblees.
