An evil spirit created from fire. Iblis refused to worship Adam because he considered him an inferior being, created from mud rather than fire. For this he was expelled from Paradise and forced to roam the earth until Judgement Day tempting humans (except perfect Muslims) to do evil.
See Quran 2:34, 7:11-18, 15:29-40
