The Devil Sees God’s Invisible Soldiers (8:48 – 8:52)

The Devil Sees God’s Invisible Soldiers

[8:48] The devil had adorned their works in their eyes, and said, “You cannot be defeated by any people today,” and “I will be fighting along with you.” But as soon as the two armies faced each other, he turned back on his heels and fled, saying, “I disown you. I see what you do not see. I am afraid of GOD. GOD’s retribution is awesome.”
[8:49] The hypocrites and those who harbored doubt in their hearts said, “These people are deceived by their religion.” However, if one puts his trust in GOD, then GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.
[8:50] If you could only see those who disbelieved when the angels put them to death! They will beat them on their faces and their rear ends: “Taste the retribution of Hell.
[8:51] “This is a consequence of what your hands have sent forth. GOD is never unjust towards the creatures.”
[8:52] This is the same fate as that of Pharaoh’s people and those who disbelieved before them. They rejected GOD’s revelations, and GOD punished them for their sins. GOD is powerful, and His retribution is severe.

Why would Satan gain out of propagating the people?

Satan wants to show that he is not as bad as others people

Satan Dupes the People

[17:61] When we said to the angels, “Fall prostrate before Adam,” they fell prostrate, except Satan. He said, “Shall I prostrate to one You created from mud?” [17:62] He said, “Since You have honored him over me, if You respite me till the Day of Resurrection, I will possess all his descendants, except a few.” [17:63] He said, “Then go; you and those who follow you will end up in Hell as your requital; an equitable requital. [17:64] “You may entice them with your voice, and mobilize all your forces and all your men against them, and share in their money and children, and promise them. Anything the devil promises is no more than an illusion. [17:65] “As for My servants, you have no power over them.” Your Lord suffices as an advocate.

In 8:48 the devil hypes up the people’s ego and when reality comes fear sets in and the devil fleas leaving the people to fend for themselves.

The insurance industry is a perfect example of this, they make promises that they will be with the people and the as soon as disaster hits they flea and negate their agreements.
