Adam And Eve(Hawwa)
Posted Monday, July 14, 2008on:
Many of us here, May not be aware but Adam was the first prophet to be send to the Earth (among the many sent to the Ummah). Adam had four Honors, Allah has created him with HIS hands, breathed into him the soul which HE created for him (before which he remained in earthen body for 40 years), asked the angels to prostate before him and taught him the names of things. We all know the story of Creation of Adam, the reason he was descended from Paradise to the Earth, I have collected some Hadith/Information that we might not be knowing.
‘Allah has created Adam from a handful soil which HE had collected from all over the Earth, Hence producing children of Adam according to the nature and colour of the earth. There are white among them, as well as Black, red and cross colours. There are among them who are of bad nature and good nature , soft as well as harsh and in between.’ – As narrated by Prophet S.A.S. When Adam asked Allah ‘O Lord! If you could have made them alike and similar ?’ Allah replied: ‘I like to be thanked!’
Prophet S.A.S narrated: Allah created Adam, then HE stroke his back with HIS right hand and took out from it some of his progeny and said, ‘I have created all of them for Paradise and they will be doing the deeds of those who deserve Paradise’. And then HE stroke upon his back with HIS left hand and took out the rest of his progeny and said ‘They are created for Hell, and will be doing deeds of those who deserve Hell.’ A companion asked “O Messenger! Then what is a deed for?” The Prophet S.A.S replied ‘ When Allah creates a Man for Paradise, he facilitates for him to do deeds of the people of Paradise, till he dies on those deeds so that Allah makes him enter Paradise for those deeds. And When Allah creates a Man for Hell, he facilitates for him to do deeds of the people of Hell, till he dies on those deeds so that Allah makes him enter Hell for those deeds.
When Adam dwelt in Paradise, He wandered alone as he had no partner in whom he could seek comfort. However, Once he slept and when he woke up he found a woman sitting near his head, whom Allah has created from His ribs. Adam asked her, ‘What are you?’ She replied, ‘I am a Woman’ He asked her again, ‘What are you created for?’ She replied, ‘So you could seek comfort in me’. Angels who were well aware of the knowledge of Adam asked him, ‘What is her name O Adam?’ He said, ‘Hawwa’. They asked him ‘Why is it Hawwa?’ Adam replied: Because she was created out of a living object. She was created from the smallest rib of his left side while he was sleeping, and then that empty place was filled with flesh. – As narrated by Suddi through Abu Salih and Ibn Mas’ud and also from other companions.
