The verse doesn't say that God asked Adam to teach them the names, the verse says that God asked Adam to inform them about the names. The verb used is «أنبِئهُم» not «عَلِّمهُم». Their usage is quite different is Quran. The following is what I understand from Quran: The reason God tells Adam to inform the Angels about the names seems to be that God wants ...

The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta' said regarding the issue: Regarding the fact that Adam (peace be upon him) married his sons to his daughters, this is something that he did according to the law that Allah commanded him to follow which we do not have any right to argue about. Anyway, as far as the Shari`ah (Islamic law) that ...

There were four sequential steps in Adam's story: Order/Command [ 2:35 ] And We said, "O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat therefrom in [ease and] abundance from wherever you will. But do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers." Sin [ 2:36 ] But Satan caused them to slip out of it ... Qortoby Tafseer states that ...

I don't believe that this is a good question; there is no controversy to begin with. The story is clearly outlined in the Qur'an. From Surah Baqarah: But Satan caused them to slip out of it and removed them from that [condition] in which they had been. And We said, "Go down, [all of you], as enemies to one another, and you will have upon the earth a ...

First part of your question: Why hasn't god distroyed the devil? http://quran.com/7/14 [Satan] said, "Reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected." http://quran.com/7/15 [ Allah ] said, "Indeed, you are of those reprieved." The satan begged god to allow him to prove to god that he (devil) is better than man. God delayed the devils ...

When asked a similar question, Imam Ja‘far as-Sadiq (a.s) replied that Adam (a.s) married 2 of his sons (Shith and Yaafith) to 2 huries (Nazala and Mauzela). Also according to Imam al-Baqir (a.s), Allah also married a female jinni to another of Adam(a.s)'s son. Therefore beauty in creation due to the huri and ugliness due the Jinn. The Imam emphatically ...

Different Messengers were sent with different Laws that were applicable to different nations at different times. For example, the Law of Moses (as) differs from the Law of Muhammad (saws), and it also differs from the Law of later Messengers of the Children of Israel. There are references to the Laws of Abraham, Jacob, and so forth in the Qur'an and Sunnah. ...

It was not an apple, and was not a known earthly fruit because it did not take place on Earth. When Adam and his wife (that is not called Eve in Quran) tasted the tree then they were sent to Earth. فَدَلَّاهُمَا بِغُرُورٍ ۚ فَلَمَّا ذَاقَا الشَّجَرَةَ بَدَتْ لَهُمَا سَوْآتُهُمَا وَطَفِقَا يَخْصِفَانِ عَلَيْهِمَا مِن وَرَقِ الْجَنَّةِ ۖ وَنَادَاهُمَا ...

You are correct in what you thought, in Islam there is no such thing as original sin. Every human being are born on pure human nature without sin, it is only when a human being comes of age that he/she become accountable for their actions. From what you mention in your question, your teacher is mistaken. It is possible that he confused some concepts, for ...

It is important to understand the difference between scientific hypothesis, such as "Humans are descended from animals that lived millions of years ago," and metaphysical truth, such as "The first humans were created miraculously, with no ancestors, a few thousand years ago." Nothing in science can be said to be true, in any fundamental sense. Consider: any ...

If this is true, why don't they say adam and eve as son of Allah. Also that camel Allah showed as a sign from the rocks should also be daughter of Allah? Angles have no fathers they are also children of Allah? In-fact by saying this they are disrespecting Allah and saying he cannot create something with his will. We cannot understand his power, he willed to ...

Consider that this was Allah's (ﷻ) response to Pharaoh (Firown) when he "repented" after all his evil and the punishment overtook him: "Now? And you had disobeyed [Him] before and were of the corrupters" - Qur'an 10:90-91. In the end, Pharaoh's repentence was not accepted. I imagine the same would be the case for Iblis if he 'repented.' Repenting when it is ...

Before God blew his breath into Adam (a.s) he told the angels 'this creation of mine shall be my emissary khalifa on earth and I shall place generation after generation of them on earth'. So no, Adam (a.s) was not sent to earth as a punishment, rather it was meant for him to be there before he was even given life. If you have any other queries just post ...

First of all Islam does not support Marriage between Siblings. They are clearly forbidden in Quran Surah Al-Nisah 4:23 Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters ...

Your question can be answered from tafsir ibn Kathir who refuted this and said it is among the so called israeeliyat unfortunately qtafsir didn't mention this IMO important part of the text and jumped forward quoting a long hadith :( while explaining the meaning of (2:36) ... And We said, "Go down, [all of you], as enemies to one another, and you will ...

Although I am not 100% sure, I think that the names that were taught to Adam are the names of God. This is so that Adam can glorify the names of God. It makes sense that the first thing man should learn are the names of the Creator. Names being the quality that describes the Creator. The names of the angels may also be taken from hte qualities of God as they ...

When Allah said to the Angels that he will create Adam, there was a conversation that happened between Allah and them, there was also a conversation among the angels themselves, we all know the conversation between Allah and the angels, but not all of us know what was the conversation among the angels, I saw a video in YouTube for Tareq Al-sweedan who ...

Salaams, First of all angels were being informed here by Allah (swt)of His plan of creating a "Khalifa" successor/viceergent, as angels will be playing an important role to support,help and serve humanity, in this verse. The angels were not questioning or criticizing God un auzobillah,they were wondering why God is creating a revised edition of a being (...

According to this Aya (Al-A'raf [7:27]): From http://quran.com/7/27 O children of Adam, let not Satan tempt you as he removed your parents from Paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts. Indeed, he sees you, he and his tribe, from where you do not see them. Indeed, We have made the devils allies to those who do ...

Please read carefully from Surat Al-Baqarah 2/30 to Surat Al-Baqarah 2/39. Then watch this video: by Prof. Jeffrey Lang. It is a long video (1.5 hour), but it is very enlightening, please watch it until the end. As a short answer, we are not on Earth because of the sin of Adam and Eve (peace be upon them). We are here to be tested individually. Mankind is ...

Initially you’d better pay attention to the verse below regarding the goal of creation. وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ ﴿٥٦ / And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. (56) http://tanzil.net/#trans/en.sahih/51:56 So in accordance with the above-mentioned verse, the target of the creation is related ...

Heaven is a place of eternal life, endless rewards and bounties, When was heaven designated to be the reward for those who obey Allah? The promise of such heaven came after the incident of disobeying Allah, then repenting by Adam. As there wouldn't be a reward without a task to accomplish! revise the description of Jannah! you will see exactly that it is ...

the basic concept of sin in islam is that every prophet is a normal human being just like other human beings so they have abilty to sin. But Allah protects them from sinning. they are not just born sin free. Prophet Muhammad , Jesus, adam, all previous prophets were human beings like us, but the only difference between us and them was that they were ...

This is my personal point of view: First of all you can find a general answer of your question in 51:56 And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. Now let's have a look at 46:14 Those are the companions of Paradise, abiding eternally therein as reward for what they used to do. Here, you will notice that Allah promises an immortal ...

As Salam Alikum, According to Islam, Adam and Eve were sent down to earth after they disobeyed Allah(swt), by eating the forbidden fruit. As we get from the Quran “Get you down (upon the earth), all of you together(Adam, Eve and Iblis), from Paradise/Garden, some of you are an enemy to some others. Then, if there comes to you guidance from Me, whoever ...

As I listen. They were created in paradise physically and spiritually. And lived at both on paradise and on earth. Allah o Rasool knows better.

The only power Satan and his accomplices have is to implant evil suggestions; they do not have the power to force people into evil. Therefore, any punishment meted out to human being is only due to the crimes they committed exercising their freewill. They definitely have choice to refuse the evil suggestions of Satan. Since this world was created as a ...

As we see, Allah told angles I have to place a trustee on the Earth, then Does Allah made his decision to put them on the Earth even before their mistake. yes it means this earth. because you should a faith that prophets do not commit error.it was the decision of ALLAH to send his khalifa on land so ADAM alaihi salaam was acting upon masihat e rabbani.That ...

When Allah (SWT) said in the Quran: And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority." Al-Baqarah 30 and in the same verse the angels replied: They said, "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?" ...

I believe the meaning is very simple ,it means God gave adam and the whole mankind free access to knowledge of everything ,this is why scientist are able to research and find the unknown in many areas. This is the closest logical explanation I can think of ,The problem is most Muslims take everything mentioned in the Quran too literally . I also believe ...
