The concept of devil is found in every religion. Hebrew Bible (The Old Testament) describes the devil known as Satan who is an enemy of God and misguides the man from the path of God. In Islam too Ilbis is the devil who refuses to obey God when he was asked to bow before Adam, hence thrown from Heaven. He misguides the man from the path of God and corrupts him to the path of hell.

The invention of Satan is an important principle of scriptures. One question which no scripture can ever explain without the help of devil is that when everyone is created by God and God rules the mind, body and soul of every person, why there are so many evils in this world. In other words, if God is perfect, His creation too must be perfect. Thus there exists no scope of any imperfection in this world except due to the mischief of Devil who somehow seems to be beyond the control of God.

The concept of devil alone can provide some answer to this perennial problem which the nonbelievers and atheists have always seeking. It tells that Satan is quite powerful and his job is to corrupt the minds of people so that they can not follow the good and righteous path. However, he holds power only on the nonbelievers as the faithful are protected by the power of God. Thus, anyone who does not believe in God falls prey to Satan and follows the evil path.


This theory does satisfy the believers, but fail to satisfy the unbelievers. The reason is that since God is Omnipotent and Omnipresent, why does He not kill the Devil and make the world good once for all.

The debate thus continues without any logical conclusion. Those who believe may find it logical but those who disbelieve fail to appreciate the logic. Fyodor Dostoyevsky said

“If the devil does not exist, and man has therefore created him, he has created him in his own image and likeness”
However, this theory is the very basis of human civilization as every civilization at least in the West has been formed based on this basic principle. What is against the scriptures or the law of the land is easily termed as devil.

God And Devil: Not Always

Indian philosophers principally have two important philosophies. These are dvaita (dualism) and Dvait (non-dualism).

As per the dualism, every thing in the world has been created in pair. One is opposite to other. Thus we have the concept of God and Devil just like we have defined Good and Evil. This is easy to understand hence most popular amongst the common people. The popular scriptures like Ramayana and Mahabharata are nothing but the stories of the fight between Good and Evil. On the side of god is the Incarnation of God (Rama and Krishna) while on the other side is the Devil like Ravana or Duryodhana. Thus in popular Hindu religion, God is the representation of good while the one who opposes God is represented as devil.
