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 ...

In the hadith below it says 60 cubits tall. That’s about 90 feet. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall. When He created him, He said to him, "Go and greet that group of angels, and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring." So, ...

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 ...

There are a few verses in the qur'an that create a confusion and which caused a difference of opinion among theologians, sectarians etc. Among these verse you may find the three verses you've quoted in your question. A deeper look into "breathed into him of My soul وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِنْ رُوحِي" This statement as provided in your question has been repeated ...

There is a certain delicacy when Quran speaks about Allah. I think Surah Tawhid is a great measure. Specifically و لم یکن له کفوا احد. If our spirit was of the same essence of Allah then we could countering Allah in that aspect. From the book of Al-kafi: From Imam Al-Sadiq: الصّادق (علیه السلام)- عَنِ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَاعَبْدِاللَّهِ (...

Cause Adam Alayhi salaam is not truly answerable for that. He 'forgot' and made an error in his judgement, he did not willfully disobey Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala. And We had already taken a promise from Adam before, but he forgot; and We found not in him determination. (Surah Ta-Ha 115) His going down to the earth was already decided beforehand. ...

Yes, there are sahih hadiths that mention that. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall. When He created him, He said to him, "Go and greet that group of angels, and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring." So, Adam said (to the ...

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 ...

It is true Adam was 90ft tall. Allah initially made humans very tall, and mankind has been decreasing in height ever since. The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall. When He created him, He said to him, "Go and greet that group of angels, and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (...

Well, Sujod/prostration wasn't Haram/prohibited for previous nations. But it was allowed as glorifying not as an act of worship. You can read ورفع ابويه على العرش وخروا له سجدا وقال يا ابت هذا تاويل رؤياي من قبل قد جعلها ربي حقا وقد احسن بي اذ اخرجني من السجن وجاء بكم من البدو من بعد ان نزغ الشيطان بيني وبين اخوتي ان ربي لطيف لما يشاء انه هو العليم الحكيم ...

From Tafsir al-Maududi: وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ الْأَسْمَاءَ كُلَّهَا ثُمَّ عَرَضَهُمْ عَلَى الْمَلَائِكَةِ فَقَالَ أَنبِئُونِي بِأَسْمَاءِ هَٰؤُلَاءِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ After this he taught Adam the names of all things. Then He set these before the angels and asked, "Tell Me the names of these things, if you are right (in thinking that the appointment ...

What names is Allah (SWT) referring to? The verses 2:30-33 form a dialogue between God and the angels. They raise a question about the God's decision of making Man a vicegerent on the Earth. Afterwards, God answers them by asking Adam to tell them some names. If they were names of God or those of the angels then it may prove that Adam was more ...

First of all we need to find a consensus about the definition of naby and rasul. According this (Arabic) Fatwa -my translation from Arabic, please take it with care- the term naby is more general than the term rasul: some scholars define naby as somebody who has received a revelation or message from Allah if he has been asked to spread it then he will be ...

Is Adam's Peak a sacred place for Muslims? No, it has no religious significance in Islam. There are no hadiths (Islamic tradition) or verse of the Qur'an that says anything about it. OP's claim that "Muslims in all over the world go to Adam's Peak." is questionable. What evidence do you have for this? And even if that's true, it won't make the so called ...

From Shia references, Book Ihtijaj: 1.قال امیر المومنین علی (ع) إن سجودهم له لم يكن سجود طاعة أنهم عبدوا آدم من دون الله عز وجل ، ولكن اعترافا بالفضيلة From Imam Ali: Their prostration was not a prostration of obedience, it wasn't that they are worshiping Adam and not Allah, rather it was their recognition of his virtue. _ قال الصادق عليه‌ ...

The ahadith narrated by abu Hurraira on the matter and which at least seem to go ahead with parts of your quote are the two similar (or identical ahadith) from sahih al-Bukhari quoted in Chapter: How the Salam began and Chapter: The creation of Adam and his offspring. The longer version of the hadith you quoted as far as i can tell isn't in sahih al-Bukahri ...

Sacredness of mahram is clear in Qur'aan whereas children of Adam having intercourse with each other is arrived at from deduction and unverified stories, there are even alternate stories that al-hoor al-iyn were sent for them to marry. You can not compare the two. Even if the story is correct it was because of a need and only applicable to that situation. ...

As‘salaamu alaikum! Souls are definitely created things, although I do not know the mystery of how Allahu ta alaa made them nor what he created them from. I only know that ALL THINGS, except Allahu ta alaa Himself, are created things. That necessarily includes the souls. But I can substantiate my claims directly from the Qur‘an.... “When your Lord drew ...

We know most certainly that Jinn existed before Adam(A.S) as well as the Angels , they were both present by the time of Adam(A.S)'s creation . Also Jinn lived on earth before us , precisely they were already living on earth when Adam (A.S) was created , so here is your answer .

Sahih al-Bukhari, Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Adam and Moses argued with each other. Moses said to Adam. 'You are Adam whose mistake expelled you from Paradise.' Adam said to him, 'You are Moses whom Allah selected as His Messenger and as the one to whom He spoke directly; yet you blame me for a thing which had already been ...

Honestly, I don't think anybody here can answer that question. I'll try to make some comments around why I think so. I'll start with your points; 3: It can be feasible that he was talking in Arabic, since the language of Paradise seems to be Arabic. This statement seems to be based on a logical fallacy. The deduction is from the statement "Language of ...

I understand what do you mean . Yes He has the genetics of Adam because His mother is descendant from The father of human Adam

Absolutely not. On the contrary, Islam says clearly that nothing is alike God, neither the man nor any thing else : " ليس كمثله شئ و هو السميع البصير " Surat Alashura , Aya 11.

The scientific study of the origin of life is called abiogenesis. Basically, the idea is that (somehow) basic self-replicating molecules came about, and over time they became more complicated and clustered together to form cells, which evolved over time to give a diverse range of organisms. Which of these molecule clusters was the first living organism is ...

There are two branches of thought regarding the hadith of Adam's height (i.e. "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall."); while some scholars consider it wholly authentic, other scholars (including Sunni scholar Ramzi Noanea in his book الإسرائيليات وأثرها في كتب التفسير) consider it to be Isra'iliyat as similar narrations can be found in the Talmud. ...
