Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.
Allah Almighty was saying, "I am creating someone that shall be My representative in Heavens and I am using for his creation four elements--fire, earth, water and hawwaa, wind--and mixing those four elements and asking to create a new creature." When Shaytan was hearing this he was very upset, saying, “Creating it for what, when I am here?" . وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاء كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ Wa ja`alnaa min al-maa'i kulla shay’in hayy. We made every living thing from water. (Surat al-Anbiyaa, 21:30) . That sirr, secret, was with Sayyidina Adam but not with Shaytan. Fire is never giving life, but water gives life! Therefore, these four sacred elements were arranged in a new creature that no other creature was granted in one being. . That is a secret of the creation of Adam that the Lord of Heavens granted to him and his majaal, level, can’t be understood by other ones. Angels are created from lights and Shaytan from fire, but Adam is created from four different elements and his being can’t be known. .
