Assalamualaikum Dear Shaykh,
I have been years wondering what is the nature of origin of deva is it angel or jinn or other kind of ALLAH creation?
Majority of scholars consider that shaytan or the devil was a jinn while a minority consider that he was an angel. Al-Baydawi reconciled the two views by saying he was an angel whom Allah created with the capacity of fallibility, and he became a jinn. Allah knows best.
