Synopsis

Prophet Adam is believed to have been the first human being and the first prophet and messenger on Earth in Islam. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also venerate his wife, Lady Eve (Hawa), as the "mother of mankind". Muslims see Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an promulgates that all the prophets preached the same faith of submission to God. His story is told in the Qur'an in numerous places, though his Qur'anic narrative differs from that in the Torah in some aspects.

The Qur'an and hadith give the same account of the creation of Adam and Eve. Synthesizing the Qur'an with Sunni hadith can produce the following account. According to the Qur'an, when God informed the angels that he was going to put a successor on Earth, they questioned whether the human would cause blood shed and damage, but He told them that He knew what they did not.He created Adam from clay and He breathed life into him. Hadith add that he was named Adam after the clay he was made out of, or the skin (adim) of the earth.

Returning to the Qur'an, when Allah SWT The creator of universe asked all the angels to prostrate before Adam, they all obeyed except Iblis (Lucifer) from jinn race. For this, God banished Iblis to earth where he would be a tester of humans. God teaches Adam the names of all the things.

Sunni hadith say that while Adam was sleeping, God took a rib from him and from it He created Eve; however, while the creation of Adam and Eve is referred to in the Qur'an, the exact method of creation is not specified. The Qur'an then says that God commanded that Adam and Eve not eat from one tree in heaven, but Iblis was able to convince them to taste it. They then began to cover themselves because they now knew that they were naked. For this, God banished Adam and Eve to earth.

Prophet Adam and Hawa were immediately full of remorse and begged for forgiveness and mercy from Allah. Allah ordered them out of Jannah and sent them to live on earth. He said, “Therein shall you live, and therein shall you die, but from it you shall be taken out at last.” Prophet Adam AS and his offspring began to live on earth according to Allah’s command.

Non-canonical Sunni hadith also say that Adam and Eve were cast down far apart, so that they had to search for each other. In Islamic theology, it is not believed that Adam's sin is carried by all of his children. Hadith say that once Adam was on earth, God taught him how to plant seeds and bake bread. This was to become the way of all of Adam's children. Adam proceeded to live for about 1000 years.

And so we are all the descendants of Prophet Adam and Hawa, the first humans to be placed on earth. Here on earth we shall all live and die, and from here we shall all be made to return to Allah. Prophet Adam was the first prophet to bring Allah’s message to mankind, so that we might know how to worship Allah SWT The Creator of Universe and how to seek forgiveness for our mistakes.

This book is story of Prophet Adam & Lady Eve (Hawwa) in islam faith, based from Holy Quran & Al-Hadith.
