Does that imply, then, that God didn't know Satan's heart?

Great question. In Sufi thought it's understood as a test of true monotheism, which Iblis passes. He is now a devoted servant, helping God constantly test belief to make it worthwhile.

Is the play inspired from some other literary work or is it his own creation because I have come across similar retelling of the story before.

It is inspired by the Tawasin of Hallaj, but as far as I know it is an original interpretation.
