ADAM

AL-BAQARA-2

 

2:30-39

And your Lord said to the angels:

"I am placing a successor on the earth."

 

They said:

"Will You place in it he who would make corruption in it, and spill blood; while we praise by Your glory, and exalt to You?"

 

He said:

"I know what you do not know."

 

And He taught Adam the names of all things,

then He displayed them to the angels and said:

"Inform Me of the names of these if you are truthful."

 

They said:

"Glory to You,  we have no knowledge except that which You have taught us, You are the Knowledgeable, the Wise."

 

He said:

"O Adam, inform them of their names,"

 

so when he informed them of their names,

 

He said:

"Did I not tell you that I know the unseen of the heavens and the earth, and that I know what you reveal and what you are hiding?"

 

And We said to the angels:

"Yield to Adam,"

 

so they yielded except for Satan, he refused and became arrogant, and became of the rejecters.

 

And We said:

"O Adam, reside you and your mate in the paradise, and eat from it bountifully as you both wish, and do not approach this tree, else you will be of those who have wronged."

So, the devil caused them to slip from it, and he brought them out from what they were in, 

 

and We said:

"Descend; for you are enemies to one another; and on the earth you will have residence and provisions until the appointed time."

 

Adam then received words from His Lord, so He forgave him;

He is the Forgiver, the Merciful.

 

We said:

"Descend from it all of you, so when the guidance comes from Me, then whoever follows My guidance, they will have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve."

 

And those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations,

they are the dwellers of Hell, in it they will abide. 

 

AL-ARAF  -7

 

7:11-25

And We created you, then We shaped you,

then We said to the angels:

"Yield to Adam;"

 

so they yielded except for Satan, he was not of those who yielded.

 

He said:

"What has prevented you from yielding when I have ordered you?"

 

He said:

"I am far better than him,

You created me from fire and created him from clay!"

 

He said:

"Descend from it, for it is not for you to be arrogant here;

depart, for you are disgraced."

 

He said:

"Grant me respite until the Day they are resurrected?

 

He said:

"You are granted."

 

He said:

"For that which You have caused me to be misled,

I will stalk for them on Your straight path."

"Then I will come to them from between their hands,

and from behind them, and from their right, and from their left;

and You will find most of them unthankful." 

 

He said:

"Get out from this, you are despised and banished. As for those of them who follow you, I will fill Hell with you all!.

 And Adam, reside with your mate in the paradise,

and eat from wherever you please; but do not approach this tree or you will be of the wicked."

 

But the devil whispered to them,

to reveal to them what was not apparent to them of their bodies;

 

and he said:

"Your Lord did not prohibit you from this tree except that you would become angels, or you would be immortal."

 

And he swore to them:

"I am giving good advice."

 

So he misled them with deception; and when they tasted the tree, their bodies became apparent to them, and they rushed to cover themselves with the leaves of the paradise;

and their Lord called to them:

"Did I not prohibit you from that tree, and tell you that the devil is your clear enemy?"

 

They said:

"Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves and if You do not forgive us and have mercy on us, then we will be of the losers!"

 

He said:

"Descend; for you are enemies to one another; and on the earth you will have residence and provisions until the appointed time."

 

He said:

"In it you will live and in it you will die, and from it you will be brought forth."

 

AL-ISRA  -17

 

17:61-64

And We said to the angels:

"Yield to Adam."

 

So they yielded except for Satan, he said:

"Shall I yield to one you have created from clay!"

 

He said:

"Shall I show You this one whom You have preferred over me,

that if You respite me until the Day of Resurrection,

I will seize his progeny, except for a few."

 

He said:

"Go, and whoever follows you from them. Hell shall be the reward to you all, a reward well deserved."

"And entice whoever you can of them with your voice,

and mobilize all your forces and men against them,

and you may share with them in their money and children,

and promise them."

 

But the devil promises nothing but deceit.

 

AL-KAHF  -18

 

18:50-51

And We said to the angels:

"Yield to Adam."

 

So they all yielded except for Satan.

He was of the Jinn, he disobeyed the order of his Lord.

Will you take him and his progeny as allies besides Me,

while they are your enemy?

Miserable for the transgressors is the substitute!

I did not make them witness the creation of the heavens and the earth, nor the creation of themselves.

Nor do I take the misleaders as helpers.

 

TA-HA  -20

 

20:115-126

And We had entrusted to Adam from before,

but he forgot, and We did not find in him the will power.

 

And We said to the angels:

"Yield to Adam."

 

They all yielded except for Satan, he refused.

 

So We said:

"O Adam, this is an enemy to you and your mate. So do not let him take you out from the paradise, else you will have hardship. You will have in it that you will not go hungry nor need clothes. And you will have in it that you will not go thirsty nor suffer from heat."

 

But the devil whispered to him, he said:

"O Adam, shall I lead you to the tree of immortality and a kingdom which will not waste away?"

 

So they both ate from it, and their bodies became apparent to them, and they began to place leaves on themselves from the paradise. Adam had disobeyed his Lord, and had gone astray.

Then his Lord recalled him, and He forgave him,

and gave guidance to him.

 

He said: 

"Descend from this, all of you, for you are enemies to one another. So, when My guidance comes to you, then,

whoever follows My guidance, he will not go astray nor suffer."

"And whoever turns away from My remembrance,

then he will have a miserable life,

and We will raise him blind on the Day of Resurrection."

 

He said:

"My Lord, you have raised me blind while I used to be able to see?"

 

He said:

"It was the same when Our revelations came to you,

you forgot them, and similarly today you will be forgotten."
