Was Satan given permission to deceive?
Does Satan persecute the children of Adam (pbuh) and send them to Hell with or without the permission of God?..
If we say that Adam (pbuh) had committed a sin and his children have also committed sins through Satan's deception, then is it not up to God to punish them all for their sins? If we assume that Satan’s duty is to deceive the children of Adam, should he not then be granted the authority to persecute them without God's permission? Is not this claim borrowed from the Maguses who say that every evil or sin and persecution for it is carried out by the Satan? In that case, God has nothing to do with these things. He does not persecute anybody for the sins that he or she has committed, because Satan caused them to sin and he will persecute them for it.
No doubt such erroneous beliefs have found their way into Christianity from Magus. Therefore, there is no evidence to support these claims, neither from the revealed books nor from any of the disciples. So, the Marinates sect of Mazdasim and Christianity is basically a combination of Mazdasim and Christianity. Their leader (Mani) was a Magi-Christian. Indeed the relationship between the two religions is very strong.
Does Satan persecute the children of Adam (pbuh) and send them to Hell with or without the permission of God? If it is believed that it was with the permission of God, then Satan does not deserve to be punished; if he does not
have the permission God, then is it fair to say that God would allow Satan to practice injustice and not punish him also? If these were allowed by God to happen at one time, then it would be allowed to take place at all times, and vice versa. There is no difference between the time before Jesus (pbuh) and the time after him on the issue of injustice or sin.
