Story of Hazrat Adam (A.S.) Part 2

Allah (s.w.t.) taught Hazrat Adam (A.S.) about the names and details about all types of things on earth. Desired for knowledge is also increased for him and he was made a wise man. After the learning process is completed then Allah (s.w.t.) presented some things to angels and asked about their names. Angels were not aware of the names of those things because they were not given knowledge by Allah (s.w.t.).

Angels told Allah (s.w.t.) that they are not aware about these things because they are not given the knowledge as all the knowledge is possessed by Allah (s.w.t.). After that Allah (s.w.t.) asked about those things from Hazrat Adam (A.S.) and he told the details as he was given knowledge.

After this Allah (s.w.t.) told angels that I have informed you about this before that I am aware about all the details of items and I know the details which are not known by you. Allah (s.w.t.) gave education to Hazrat Adam (A.S.) with many abilities. Angels continued to remain busy in praising Allah (s.w.t.) and worshiping because they were not given the ability of reasoning and free will.

Hazrat Adam (A.S.) was aware of many things about earth and heaven as Allah (s.w.t.) has given him a lot of knowledge but he was not able to communicate to angels due to their busy routines. One day when Hazrat Adam (A.S.) awoke from sleep he saw a beautiful woman. He asked her about her identity and got some details. Angels were also surprised and asked Hazrat Adam (A.S.) about that woman.

Angels were aware of the fact that Hazrat Adam (A.S.) is given knowledge about many things and he can give details. Hazrat Adam (A.S.) told angels that the woman is Eve. Eve was created for giving company to Hazrat Adam (A.S.) and to share his loneliness. Meanings of this name are associated with living and it is given to her due to her creation from a living being.

Hazrat Adam (A.S.) told angels that Eve is created through him therefore she is given that name. Traditions in Christian and Jews indicate that rib of Hazrat Adam (A.S.) was used for making of Eve and it is also taken as the side of the body. Allah (s.w.t.) told humanity through Quran that He has created Hazrat Adam (A.S.) and then from that single man He created his wife.

Then from these two all the humanity was created. Hazrat Adam (A.S.) and Eve are parents of all humanity on earth. Many men and women were created from this single couple and then humans spread on different parts of earth. Teachings from Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) indicate that smallest portion of rib of Hazrat Adam (A.S.) was used for making of Eve.

This part is crooked therefore advise is given to men to deal with care and gentle with women. Muslims are advised to take care of women as the portion of rib used for their creation is crooked.

Eve means Hawwa is Arabic language. Both Hazrat Adam (A.S.) and Hazrat Hawwa (A.S.) were allowed to live in paradise and enjoy their life by using the different items. Allah (s.w.t.) warned them about a tree and they were ordered not to consume it. Other than a particular tree they were free to use all other things in heaven and enjoy their time.
