Once the Prophet (PBUH) appeared to the gathering of the companions. He noticed that all of them were in deep thinking. So he asked, "What's the matter?"
"We are thinking of the creation of Allah."
"Very well, think of Allah's creations, but not about how He might have come first lest it should inject bizarre thoughts."
Then the Prophet (PBUH) said, "Let it be known to you, (pointing at the west horizon) there's a white Earth there. The sun is 40 times brighter there. There exists a creation of Allah, none of them has ever gone astray."
The companions said, "Where's Satan then, to them?"
"They do not know of the creation of Satan."
"Are they humans? Children of Adam?"
"No," the Prophet (PBUH) replied, "they even don't know of Adam.”
