Q: Does Satan exist or is he made up? The 3 other faiths testify to his existence and tell the story of how he was rejected. Where is Satan now?

A: Sikhism regards the existence of a parallel and evil power to Akaal as being blasphemous. Akaal Purakh is all powerful and all pervading. There can be no power opposed to his. All are his creations are under his will. Does it make sense that a being such as Satan could exist to oppose God? Sikhism does not believe that human are deceived by Satan. Human are deceived by Maya i.e. the creation of Akaal, when they take it to be true and forget who has created it. When the human is entangled in the net of Maya, he falls in love with falsehood and material creations, and forgets the source of all love and happiness, Akaal. So Sikhism does indeed reject the existence of some parallel power, "Satan", which opposes God.
