He is rejected! In the Quran, Allah (swt) mentions Shaitan and his devilish ways at many instances. But there is this one particular instance where his intentions are highlighted in the most prominent fashion.
Allah (swt) mentions Iblees’ words in the Quran: “I swear to you Allah, I will absolutely misguide them.” Here, the term ‘misguide’ should be taken as ‘confuse’. Shaitan will try to make us choose between Allah’s (swt) guidance and his whispers. He will confuse us by telling us that Allah (swt) is the Most Merciful. His mercy is divine, so it is alright to live a little loosely. He will tell lies on behalf of Allah (swt) Himself!
You will get confused and believe the lies of Shaitan that would lead you further away from what Allah (swt) has actually guided.
Or he might come to you and mislead you by telling that you are such a lost cause! No matter how much you pray or fast, you are ultimately going to rot in Hell. So why go through the trouble? Go and loosen up. Party a little.
