When Satan was kicked out of the heaven for disobeying God, was he all alone or did he have others who followed him?

I mean, did he have any followers at that time as well? If so, who were they?

Report as

yes he had followers. 1/3 of heaven went with him.

This is where the concept " guilt by association" originated. And Satan was thrown out for the sin of pride, not for disobedience...that would mean the second we disobey God we're doomed, negates forgiveness...just clarifying that not wishing to be argumentative.

Hhmmm, I'm almost certain that the concept of 'guilt by association' predates biblical myth. But that's funny.

I think the devil followed him, and Beelzebub. Plus Donald Trump (LOLZ just kidding that last one was a joke but the others are historical bible stuff).

Shaytan wasn't kicked out from Heaven. In Job, he was seen amongst Angels whilst meeting with God. All realms belongs to God including where Shaytan and his cohorts were cast down to their dominion. Everything we see is from God. No one owns any domain but Him and Him alone. Just as our life belongs to Him. So is Shaytan's existence will come to Great Judgment one day by Allah, the One True God. Shaytan is the trickster of mankind. Our Armour of Faith is all we need to fight him alongside Heaven.

You mean, you live in Spain? I live in Chicago, USA.

Yes. In Spain. Half around the world from where we are now. How's Illinois or Chicago? I was once there but it was really windy? But still a very nice place to stay and visit. A comfy place, if I may say so.

Yes, Chicago is a great place to live and visit! It is very wind that's why it is called the Windy City! But I have always wanted to go to Europe! It has great history and beautiful Castles!

If you get the chance for Spain, I highly recommend this place to visit, La Alhambra. It is in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It is beautiful and the grandest Islamic architecture in all lands of Europe. Here's the link you can follow.

Lucifer and 1/3 of the angles were cast out of heaven; and now reside here on earth, knowing they will never be in heaven again, but are doomed for the lake of fire.

According to the myth (which actually is a myth and I'm not just saying that because I don't believe in it), there were also other angels who went with him. However, Lucifer did not disobey god. Instead, he wanted a revolution because he thought god was wrong. Around this time, god had never allowed any of his creation free will. This is what Lucifer was trying to explain to god: he couldn't just create things, and not give it free will. God didn't like that, though, because supposedly he was all superior and yet someone weaker than him corrected him, so he kicked Lucifer out of heaven.
