Adam And Eve(Hawwa)

Posted on: Monday, July 14, 2008

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.

Though I’ve already read the story of Adam and Eve countless times but it was nice reading it again :) though I’ve read interpretations where Eve is blamed more then Adam for their sin and I I don’t like those point of view much :( ..

Sweet Maryam, can’y more than just one post can appear on front page??

A.A. Maryam
How are you hun, hope your in the highest of health and Imaan.

I love this story of Adam and Hawa as they are the very first human begings ALLAH created and just how ALLAH SWT created Hawa from Adam amazes me every single time I hear the story…
How ALLAH intends and created each human those of hell and those of paradise is a very important fact to remember always.

and yet so many women of our day forget what their real purpose was.. and how cannot do all what male counterparts are made for..

Aww, what an interesting topic. I had a post on it here:

http://iqrabismirabik.wordpress.com/2007/12/11/women-in-quran-part-one-eve/

And it made a very long but fruitful discussion in the comments. Have a look. I am sure you will enjoy it.. :)

Lubbu … I understand Lubbu, I have read the same many times too. Some books say that Hawwa is to blame, while others dont. I dont know what to believe and what not to, Allah knows better Is all I can say .. :-(

Oh yes, They can Sweety, and they will … Just For You .. :-)

Mina … Me too .. Adam and Eve are one of the first people on this world, which alone is intriguing, along with their story.

Tauqeer … O Boy !! Do they ??
Now, Lets not start with this, Alright. Its pretty unhealthy, dont you think ??

Shazi .. Thanks for the Link Darling, I really appreciate that .. :-)

I have some questions:

Allah made Adam with HIS own hand (Description of HIS left hand and right hand here). Is Allah supposed to have physical appearances?

Creation of Hawwa: from Adam’s rib, objective was to tranquilize

Adam. Even if women have evry potential that a man can have, the purpose of women is not for anything but to give company to men?

Adam and Hawwa were blessed with 4 childre: first twin brother and sister , second other twin brother and sister. Adam was asked by Allah to marry each twin brother and sister. However, one brother did not marry to the sister he was tol to. He wanted to marry other sister who was more beautiful. As a continuation of this fighting, the elder brother was killed by the younger brother. I could not find the next happenings. Could anybody give me any link? I understand we must keep faith in our religion , I still think about marriage between brothers and sisters. It raises lot of contradictions in my mind.

Fatema .. It is indeed an interesting questions raised and I am enclosing in my email to you my reply to it, for I am afraid it may ask for a discussion not appropriate for my blog here, although if we seem to touch on some important things, it shall be published here for others to learn from inshallah

assalamu alaikum(rwb)

sister maryam your article is very excellent

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.

Now if Allah makes people preplanned to do deeds either for Heaven or Hell,how is it that they are held responsible for what they do?

@Aashia

AsSalaam Alaikum Sis,

The question you have asked is related to “predestination”. If I go on to answer this over here, it would be too lengthy and could even be confusing with my disorganized way of writing :P

So I would really really advice you to go to the following link and understand the topic, because Faith in Predestination is one of the 6 pillars of Eeman (Faith).

http://qsep.com/EemanDVD/PredestinationDVD.htm

It is a 52 min video which you can download for yourself and even distribute and share with your friends. Dr.Abdullah Farsi has given a very comprehensive explanation from Quran and Sunnah. And I’m sure insha Allah that will clear your confusion as well.

@Lubna and Maryam:

AsSalaam Alaikum WR WB,

I know this thread is a bit too old, but I just landed on this and found a discussion regarding whether “Eve is to blame more than Adam for the sin”.
Would just like to tell that as per my knowledge and from the discussions I have had on this topic with scholars, there is no single hadith or line in Quran that blames her more than Adam (as).
The only place where she gets blamed more is in the Old Testament.

Just thought of adding this. Nice posts by the way. I liked them.
