Adam aleh Salam

Adam aleh salam

Adam Aleah Salam was first prophet in Islam.  Through him Allah created the world and the existence of humans came into the world.Adam is described as being kneaded from mud.

 Allah said to the angels:“‘Verily, I am going to place mankind generations after generations on earth.’ They said: ‘Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, while we glorify You with praises and thanks and sanctify You.’ Allah said: ‘I know that which you do not know." (Quran 2:30)

So begins the story of Adam, Alaihis Salaam, the first human.  Allah made Adam out of all his varieties on earth with a handful of clay.  The angels were sent to the ground to gather mud to build Adam.  It was red, white, brown and black;  It was soft and malleable, hard and gritty;  It came from mountains and valleys;  From infertile desert and lush fertile plains and all natural varieties in between.  The descendants of Adam were as diverse as the handful of clay from which their ancestors were made;  All have different forms, qualities and qualities.

In the Quran, the clay used to make Adam is known by many names, each name of clay being used at a different stage of the creation of Adam.  Soil taken from the earth is called clay;  Allah also refers to it as clay.  When it is mixed with water it becomes sludge, when it is released the amount of water is reduced and it becomes viscous soil (or sludge).  If left again for some time, it starts to stink, and the color becomes darker - black, clay.  It was with this substance that Allah molded the form of Adam.  His digestible body was left to dry, and became what is known in the Quran  Allah honored the first human, Adam Alaihis Salaam, in countless ways.  Allah made them spirit, he made it  and he ordered the angels bow down to it.

 But all the angels prostrated before him except the Iblis (Satan).  He was proud of his being made of fire. He said, "Why should I bow down to a man made of clay?"

Allah gave Adam the ability to recognize and designate names to everything;  He taught them language, speech and the ability to communicate.  Allah chose Adam with an incomparable need for knowledge and love.  Adam learned names and uses for all things after which Allah told the angels ...

 "If you are true, tell me their name."  He replied that we have no knowledge except what you have taught us.  In fact, it is all you are knowledgeable, all are intelligent.  ''

 (Quran 2: 31–32)

 Allah said to Adam:

 "O Adam!"  Inform them of their names, 'and when they informed them of their names, they said: Didn't I tell you that I know the unseen in heaven and earth, and I know what you reveal and  What are you hiding  "

 (Quran 2:33)

 The angels were not given any specific knowledge or freedom of will, their sole purpose was to worship and praise Allah.  On the other hand, Adam was given the ability to reason, make choices, and identify objects and their purpose.  This helped prepare Adam for his upcoming role on Earth.
