Satan (also referred to as Devil and Lucifer) is a fallen angel who rebelled against God. He is often identified as the serpent in the Garden of Eden, whose persuasions led to original sin and the need for Jesus Christ's redemption. He is also identified as the Accuser of Job, the tempter of the Gospels and the dragon in the Book of Revelation.
Christians understand the Devil to be the author of lies and promoter of evil. It is held that he can go no further than the word of God allows and exists to test the souls of men; to test man's will when confronted with the temptation to fall away from the life of sanctity, for the kingdom of deceit.
According to the Gospel of John, the Pharisees—forefathers of what is today Talmudic Judaism—reject Jesus Christ as the Messiah because their father is not the true God, but instead the Devil. The Talmud is sometimes regarded as Satan's masterpiece.
In Islam, the devil is named Iblis. In Islam angels have no free will so instead Iblis is a djinn (an energy being created before humanity) who refused to bow down to mankind and rebelled against God. God then basically let Iblis do whatever he wanted to try to deceive mankind. Iblis before refusing to bow to Adam used to be one of the most devout worshipers of God.
