Allah Ta‘ala loves the one who confesses his wrongs and mistakes. Our father Sayyiduna Adam (‘alaihis salaam) taught us this lesson. When he committed the mistake, he admitted his wrong and repeated the words “رَبَّنا ظَلَمنا أَنفُسَنا”.
On the other hand, Shaytaan displayed arrogance and an attitude of haughtiness which earned him the eternal curse of Allah Ta’ala.
