Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(He said: What hindered thee) Allah said to Iblis: what prevents you (that thou didst not fall prostrate) to Adam (when I bade thee) to prostrate? ((Iblis) said: I am better than him. Thou createdst me of fire while him Thou didst create of mud) I am made of fire while he is made of mud, and fire devours mud.
