  GradeSaver: The Satanic Verses Essay: Sympathy for the Devil: The Narrator's Argument in The Satanic Verses
Satan, the narrator of Rushdie's The Satanic Verses, through the story of the novel, and especially through a comparison of himself with his double, Saladin, is trying to prove to his human readers that he deserves redemption.
Satan does this by orchestrating the action of the novel, and, through the figure of Saladin Chamcha, who resembles Satan both in name and, temporarily, in visage, the narrator argues that even those who commit truly evil acts should be able to redeem themselves.
This Satan understands the transcendence of climbing Everest and of sex, the overwhelming emotion and charisma of Ayesha, the butterfly girl, the unbreakable bond between father and son.

 Christdot :: Christ. Period. :: The "Satanic Verses": Did Muhammad (PBUH) Compromise Islam?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The person who fabricated the "Satanic Verses" incident only considered the two previous verses, 19-20 (those are the only ones the story mentions), when he conjured up the "Satanic" addition, but had he looked just a single verse further down the Surah, he'd have thought twice about the devastating folly he made.
Verse 73 is clearly theoretical, as evidenced by the use of "would have", and isn't describing something that in fact happened.
Verse 75 is theoretical again, saying that Muhammad (PBUH) would have been punished as God planned to punish the idolaters had he succumbed to them, but the story says he did succumb to their wishes.
