CLASS 5 - LESSON 15
PROPHET AADAM (A) - PART 2
When Allah let Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) live in Heaven, he
allowed them to do anything they liked, except for one thing. He told them
not to go near one of the trees of Heaven and not to eat its fruits.
Shaitan could not bear to see how happy Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady
Hawwa (A) were in Heaven and wanted revenge. His jealousy made him
decide to mislead Prophet Aadam (A) into making a mistake.
Although Shaitan was not allowed to live in Heaven anymore, he had not
been stopped from visiting. One day Shaitan entered Heaven and started
talking to Prophet Aadam (A). He pretended to be his friend and when he
had convinced Prophet Aadam (A) that he meant him no harm, he said,
"Did you know that you have been kept away from the best thing in
Heaven? If you eat the fruit of that tree you will remain in Heaven
forever or you can even become angels."
When Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) heard these words they
remembered Allah's command to stay away from that tree and they
became frightened. But Shaitan was very clever and he swore by the
Name of Allah that he was their real friend and he would not tell them
something that would harm them.
Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) had never heard anyone lie
before in their lives and because Shaitan swore by Allah, they believed
him. He told them to first smell the sweet scent of the tree and look at its
beautiful colour. At last, he got them to disobey Allah and eat one fruit from
the tree.
This was a mistake by Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) and one
they were very sorry for.
QUESTION BOX
Imagine that you was in Prophet Aadam (A) position – would
you have listened to Shaitan and eaten one of the fruits?

Allah told them,
"Did I not tell you not to go near that tree and that Shaitan was your
enemy?"
Both of them told Allah how sorry they were and begged for his
forgiveness. But Allah said,
"Leave Heaven. From now on your homes will be on the earth.
From today your easy life is over and you will have to work to feed
yourself and your family."
So Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) came to this world. They
settled in a place called Eden. In the beginning, they hated it and wished
that they were back in Heaven.
They use to cry and beg Allah to forgive them and let them come back.
After a while Allah forgave them for their mistake but he told them that they
would now have to earn their place in Heaven by their actions.
He taught them that there were two paths in life. One is the path of
obedience to Allah, which leads to happiness, and Heaven and the other
path is that of the sinners, which leads to sorrow and Hell. He also warned
them that Shaitan would always try to make them and their children take
the second path and that he was their enemy.

Slowly, Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) got used to their new
home and Allah blessed them with children which made them very happy.
Lady Hawwa (A) gave birth to two sets of twins. Qaabil and his sister were
born first and then Haabil and his sister some years later.
Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) loved their children very much
and watched proudly as they grew up strong and healthy. When they
reached the age of marriage, Allah sent down two women from heaven to
be the wives of Qaabil and Haabil.
While the sisters helped Lady Hawwa (A) in the home, Qaabil became a
farmer and grew crops and Haabil kept cattle and sheep. The two brothers
were very close and the family of Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A)
passed their days happily.
QUESTION BOX
Which path do you think you have chosen to follow? Do you
take care and watch out for the evil whispers of Shaitan?

Now you know…
♦ When Allah let Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) live in
Heaven, he allowed them to do anything except eat from a particular
tree.
♦ Shaitan could not bear to see the happiness of Prophet Aadam (A)
and Lady Hawwa (A) and wanted to take revenge.
♦ Once he entered heaven and pretended to be Prophet Aadam (A)’s
friend. After swearing in the name of Allah he convinced them to eat
from the forbidden tree.
♦ Allah was angry at the disobedience of Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady
Hawwa (A). Although they begged Allah for their forgiveness, Allah
told them to leave heaven and live on earth where they would have to
work to feed themselves and their family.
♦ Although Allah forgave them, He told them that they would have to
earn their place in heaven. He taught them that there were two paths
in life. One is of obedience to Allah that leads to Heaven and the
other of disobedience to Allah that leads to Hell.
♦ Slowly, Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) settled down and
got used to their new life and they were blessed with children. First
Qabil and his twin sister and then Habil and his twin sister. When
Habil and Qabil reached marriageable age, Allah sent down two
women from Heaven to be their wives.
