Haven't you read the story why Iblees hates humans? He refused to prostrate to Hazrat Adam (ra) for he was full of arrogance, and this was direct violation of command of Allah. So Allah put him in cursed category because he will never return to the right path. Also he didn't repent for what he did, and he has been given respite till Day Of Judgement. He has vowed to drag people to hell except pious people who are on the right path.

it's because he still believes he is superior than Adam(as) and all mankind and he thinks he can prove himself right by misleading as many humans as can just in order to justify not bowing down to Adam (as) but in his arrogance, hatred and stupidity he wants to prove Allah swt wrong despite knowing Allah is never wrong and he also blamed Allah swt for wronging him while Allah never wrongs anyone but he guides the and gives them another chance. his pride has made him blind and even after knowing he will be in hell fire for this, he will never let his pride down and repent to Allah swt for he is the cursed and misguided one.

I hope this helped sister and im very glad you feel like a better person as a muslimah. May Allah swt always help you, guide you, protect you and make things easier for you Aameen, As'salam Alaykum.

Satan (Iblis) is a kafir for a specific reason. It is not just because he disobeyed (because disobeying is only a sin. It doesn't push you into kufr). It is because he was ridiculing Allah's سبحانه و تعالى command to prostrate to Adam. Allah said: وإذ قلنا للملائكة اسجدوا لآدم فسجدوا إلا إبليس قال أأسجد لمن خلقت طينا (We said to the angles, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He said, "Should I prostrate to one You created from clay?" - 17:61). Clearly from his words, he was mocking the command and wisdom behind Allah's سبحانه و تعالى order. And we know from Qur'an that mocking any part of Allah's commands/religion is disbelief.
