And Satan will say when the matter has been decided:
Verily, Allaah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me as a partner with Allaah (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the wrong-doers.
