How Can We Help?

Just got a quick question as am confused reading different answers at a particular site-question is is IBLEES an angel or a Jin?

In the Name of Allah the most Beneficent and Merciful.

It is mentioned in the Quran that Iblis was made of Fire, but it is also mentioned that All Angels prostrated except him. There is thus a divided scholarly opinion on this issue. The majority of the scholars are upon the view that he was a Jinn, but some do mention that he was an Angel. However, we know he is damned and cursed by Allah. (This fatwa has been mentioned by Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Naeemi Rehmutallah Alaih in his Fatawa-e-Naeemiya)

Of course Allah knows best

Previous Is it permissible to say Gaus ul Azam? because it means the greatest helper. But the greatest helper is Allah. Shouldnt it just be ghaus or just sheikh abdul qadir jilani? isnt it shirk to say gaus ul azam
Next Many muslims do `Khatams` for dead relatives every week. Does this have any basis in Islam or is it a part of culture?
