Holy Quran, Chapter 15 Verses 36-38

قَالَ رَبِّ فَأَنظِرْنِي إِلَى يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ قَالَ فَإِنَّكَ مِنَ الْمُنظَرِينَ إِلَى يَومِ الْوَقْتِ الْمَعْلُومِ

“(Iblis) said: ‘My Lord! Give me respite till the day when they are raised.’ (Allah) said: ‘Then you are of those who are given respite, till the day whose time is appointed”

Regarding the above verse, Imam Sadiq (as) said,  “O Wahab! Do you think this refers to the Day of Judgment when Allah resurrects the people?! It does not! Allah gave Iblis respite until the day of the rising of the Qaem (as), who will hold his (Iblis’) forehead and behead him. This is the meaning of “the day whose time is appointed.” (Dalael Al Imama page 453; Tafseer Ayyashi volume 2 page 241)
