in surah 2, line 34...

I'm confused- why does Iblis..or any of the angels for that matter, have to bow down to Adam.

its not like he was god or anything, just the 1st man.
so why do they bow down to him.
and why does iblis get in so much trouble because of this,
and cast out.

salaam to my friend!
   thank you for staying and asking more questions. they are well thought and well meaning. as with your replies.
    i also noiticed you do have some knowledge of the qu'ran in order to ask the things you do. allah knows best how to reveal his word each of us. praise allah for you effort.
    i pasted this from another post that was of the same question.
i hope it helps.
 
32:9 (Picktall) Then He fashioned him and breathed into him of His spirit; and appointed for you hearing and sight and hearts. Small thanks give ye!
 
you see adam had within him something nothing in creation contained not even the angels. not even satan himself. that is a piece of gods spirit itself. a piece of god himself  ,a gift to us. ie : Psalm 82: 6. { also note that this is the verse jesus himself uses in the gospel of john to justifiy him being called " the son of god."}
 
he comanded the angels to bow down because of this and also as a sign of obidence to him{allah}. also bowing is not only a sign of worship it's also a sign of respect and admiration.
love
leland

They don't have to bow down to Adam because he's something.
But it's God's command to the Angels and Jinns to bow down before him.
What's against God's command? If God commands it's the duty of His creation to obey.
