CLASS 5 - LESSON 14
PROPHET AADAM (A) - PART 1
Prophet Aadam (A) was the first man ever to be created. After Allah had
created the earth, the heavens, the sun and the moon, He created angels
and the jinn. Finally, He created Prophet Aadam (A) and then Lady Hawwa
(A).
When Allah informed the angels that He was going to make a new creation
who would live on earth, they were surprised and said,
"O Allah, why are you creating new creatures while we are already
busy worshipping You and are reciting Your Names all the time?
These creatures will fight amongst themselves over the blessings of
the earth and kill each other".
The angels said this because they had seen the jinn act in this way on the
earth. However, a few of the jinn were very pious and some like Azazeel or
Iblees used to worship Allah with the angels.
Allah gave the angels an answer that satisfied them. He said,
"I know that which you do not know. The creature that I will make will
be my deputy on earth. His children will occupy the whole earth and
will eat things, which will grow on it. After I have created him I will
give him life and then you should prostrate yourselves (do sajdah)
before him".
Allah made the body of Prophet Aadam (A) from a special clay and then
gave him a soul which turned him into a perfect human being. He then
commanded the angels to prostrate before Prophet Aadam (A). All the
angels immediately obeyed this command and paid their respects to
Prophet Aadam (A). However, Iblees (Shaitan) refused to prostrate.
Allah asked Shaitan why he had disobeyed His command. Shaitan replied
that he had been created from fire and was better than Prophet Aadam
(A), who had been created from clay. He therefore openly disobeyed Allah
due to his pride.

Allah was very displeased with the disobedience of Shaitan and He said to
him, "Get out of heaven. You are cursed until the Day of Judgement".
Shaitan asked to be allowed to live till that day but Allah agreed to let him
live till an appointed time.
Instead of being grateful to Allah, Shaitan promised that
he would forever lead Prophet Aadam (A) and his
children away from the right path. However, Allah told
him that he would not be able to mislead those people
who were good Muslims.
Prophet Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A) began to live in
Heaven, where they enjoyed the blessings of Allah. They
had everything they wished for and were very happy.
QUESTION BOX
Was Shaitan correct in saying he was better than Prophet
Aadam (A) because he was made of fire? If not, what is the real
reason for someone to be better?

Now you know…
♦ After Allah created the heavens and the earth He created Prophet
Aadam (A) and Lady Hawwa (A).
♦ When the angels found out that Allah was going to make a new
creation they were surprised and asked Allah why he was going to
create new creatures when they were already worshipping Him, while
the new creatures would only fight amongst each other.
♦ Allah told them that He knew what they did not know and that He
would make the new creature his deputy on earth.
♦ Allah created Prophet Aadam (A) out of special clay and then gave
him a soul. He then commanded the angels to prostrate to Prophet
Aadam (A). All the angels immediately obeyed Allah but Iblees
refused to prostrate. He told Allah that he was created from fire and
was better than Prophet Aadam (A) who was created from clay.
♦ Allah was displeased and ordered Ibless (Shaitan) to get out from
heavan and that he was cursed till the Day of Judgement.
♦ Shaitan was allowed to live till a certain day and he promised to lead
Prophet Aadam (A) and his children away from the right path
forvever. However, Allah told him he would not be able to mislead
those who were good Muslims.
