Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) – Part Four

Written by

In the Mubaarak Ahaadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that the angels were created from noor (celestial light), and the Jinn were created from fire, and man was created from soil. (Saheeh Muslim #2996)

In regard to the creation of man, it is reported that when Allah Ta‘ala intended to create Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam), He commanded the Angel of Death to collect the sand from different parts of the earth. (Mirqaat 1/176)

The wisdom behind Allah Ta‘ala appointing Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) to be His vicegerent on earth, instead of the angels, is that man has the ability to administrate and manage the affairs of the world.

The world and all its substances are harmonious and compatible to the human nature. Hence, in order for one to be able to administrate and manage the affairs of the world, he needs to be from the human species. Being the vicegerent of Allah Ta‘ala on earth means that man will have to fulfil the laws and injunctions of Allah Ta‘ala in the world and uphold justice among the creation. Man will have to execute punishments to people perpetrating crimes such as usurping the wealth of others, killing people, etc.

Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) – Part Two

Written by

WWhen Allah Ta‘ala informed the angels that He will be creating the human being and will place him in the earth as His deputy, then the angels enquired regarding the wisdom behind this. The angels also mentioned that the human being will spread corruption in the earth and will engage in bloodshed. Hence, the question arises as to how the angels knew that the human being would conduct in this manner.

Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) – Part One

Written by

Hazrat Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) was a prophet of Allah Ta‘ala. He was the first human being to be created, and hence he is the father of all mankind.

Before creating Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam), Allah Ta‘ala had created the Jinn and they were residing in the earth. After some time, they began to spread corruption in the earth and kill one another. Allah Ta‘ala then sent angels who fought these jinn and exiled them to the islands. (Tafseer Ibnu Katheer 1/127)
