Jimi asked:

Armstrong says that Satan will never be forgiven in Christianity, but in Islam "the Koran makes it clear that he will be forgiven in the Last Day" Where exactly is that stated? The Quran never said that. What is said in the Quran is that Satan will not only not be forgiven, he is the fuel of Hell. Any clarification?

Imran I think some writers give such statements based on secondary sources than primary source like (Quran in case of Islam). The writer might have used sufi sources, where they emphasise God's being most merciful over anything.

You are right that they is no such thing as forgiveness for Satan in Quran.
Nadjwa Shukri While there maybe other sources to state that, we may just stick to the primary source - Islam scripture which is Quran. And Quran never say Satan will ever be forgiven.
Graham Brecker Armstrong is correct.

Saba To explain, Muslims don't believe in a devil/ Satan. so what i mean is, there is not Satan in Islam. So Satan is just the bad side of us that tells us to do bad stuff like insulting someone or do a crime
