Here is Episode 1 of Prophets Series — Creation of Universe and Prophet Adam


Besmallah Alra7man Alra7eem…

There are ABOUT 124 THOUSAND Prophets and 300 Messengers: 25 of which were mentioned in the Noble Qur’an

Difference between a Prophet and a Messenger
The well-known difference between a Prophet and a Messenger is that a Messenger is one to whom a law is revealed and he is commanded to convey it, whilst a Prophet is one to whom a law is revealed but he is not commanded to convey it.
Some stories have been told and some were not Why these stories??
نحن نقص عليك احسن القصص بما اوحينا لك هذا القرآن وان كنت من قبله الغافلين
– سورة يوسف
اعظم القصص ، هي قصص الأنبياء
You pass by the Prophets, and u see the story of Adam, and why he was expelled from the Heavens, you read the story of Abraham, Mousa, Noah,
etc…
لقد كان في قصصهم عبرة لأولى الإلباب…ما كان حديث يفترى ولكن تصديق الذي بين يديه وتفصيل كل شيء وهدى ورحمة لقوم يؤمنون
These stories are not just fairy tales, these stories are to be analyzed, thought about, and learnt from… These prophets were in so many dilemmas and “Ebtal’a”, Testing…problems…
وكل نقص عليك من انباء الرسل ما نثبت به فؤادك

And we shall begin today, with the creation of human, with the creation of the universe
Allah first created the Throne, and then created the Pen, and he said to it, Write, The said write what?, he said write whatever is alive, and the Pen wrote the everything Allah prescribed to it…and it wrote everything in the Lo7 Ma7foth. Guarded Tablet…the Pen wrote all the creators in this guarded tablet…. And kept it there for 50 Thousand years!

Allah created the angels, Jinn [demons] two thousand years in Earth, and they mischief, and they shed blood…
Allah told the angels, that he will create a HUMAN. That he will create a ‘Khalifah’ in Earth, successor, vicegerent a ruler.
واذا قال ربك للملائكة اني جاعل في الأرض خليفة…

The Angels are frightened, and start their questions to Allah…trying to understand, trying to discover and saying:
قالو اتجعل فيها من يفسد فيها ويسفك الدماء ونحن نسبح بحمدك ونقدس لك قال اني اعلم ما تعلمون
Wilt thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Thy praise and sanctify Thee? He said: Surely I know that which ye know not.
Allah knows better…Allah knew that from those who he will create, humans will be the prophets, messengers, servants, and those who fear Allah…
Allah sent an angel to Earth to get mud from different parts of the World. That’s why we see white, black, brown people…and some are in between….and from them the good one, the bad, and the ones in between..

Allah took this soil on Friday, and created Adam from that soil or mud/clay and shaped him into the form that we recognize as human.
He first Adam was NOT created in the image of God if it is meant that God looked like Adam. Allah then breathed into him from His own soul and His creation came to life. And he made Adam the best shape.

God also refers to the soil as clay. When it is mixed with water it becomes mud, when it is left to stand the water c o n t e n t reduces and it becomes sticky clay (or mud). If it is again left for some time it begins to smell, and the colour becomes darker – black, smooth clay. It was from this substance that God moulded the form of Adam.

His soulless body was left to dry, and it became what is known in the Quran as sounding clay. Adam was moulded from something akin to potter’s clay. When it is rapped it produces a ringing sound.

According to the latest scientific researches the man has been created from clay with all its element and their inherent properties. It is discovered by a chemical analysis of the human body that a defect occurs in its normal functioning when the quantity of any of these element gets diminished. In such case vitamins are used to supplement the deficiency and restore normal health.

He stayed like this for forty years with no soul!! The angels were scared… a creation that’s 60 feet tall? Best shape? Best picture? Why Allah created this creature? Ibless? Iblees was from the Jinn[Demons]. He was with the angels in the highest kingdom. Why Allah had him there? Allah a3lom. Allah knows better. Maybe he was a wise one, educated one, he was Nobel..He was with from the Jinn, but he was with the angels..

so Ibless passed by Adam, and Adam still in what? Molded clay…and there he started envying Adam, arrogance and vanity in himself.. Iblees started going inside Adam and going out from his butt…then he hits the molded clay, he produces a ringing sound ..and he said to the angels “ Don’t worry, don’t be scared.
لا ترهبوا، فأن ربكم صمد وهذا اجوف
Your God is none comparable unto Him and this one is hollow. If I was shed on this creature, I will destroy him

Allah says in Surat Alhijr

وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي خَالِقٌ بَشَرًا مِنْ صَلْصَالٍ مِنْ حَمَإٍ مَسْنُونٍ (٢٨) فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِنْ رُوحِي فَقَعُوا لَهُ سَاجِدِينَ (٢٩) فَسَجَدَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ كُلُّهُمْ أَجْمَعُونَ (٣٠(

[Hijr 15:28] And recall when your Lord said to the angels, “I will create man from sounding clay made out of black smelly mud.”
[Hijr 15:29] “Therefore when I have properly fashioned him and breathed into him a chosen noble soul from Myself, fall down before him in prostration.”
[Hijr 15:30] Therefore all the angels, each and every one of them, fell prostrate.

Allah then told the angels, once I below into the soul of Adam..beginning of humanity..beginning of Adam…once the soul reached his head, his nose, he sneezed…The angels still looking…looking at this great day…watching and what’s gonna happen.
Angels told Adam.”Say Alhamdoleallah”, Adam said Alhamdoleallah. Allah said, “Yer7mok Robok”, “May your Lord Bless you”
Adam started looking at the Themar [fruits] of heavens..and he craves it..and the soul reached to his stomach, he got hungry..before the soul reached his legs…so he tried to stand and run to get fruits in a hurry..craved it…
خلق الإنسان من عجل…
He was in a hurry to eat….After the soul was blown into his entire body, Allah told Prophet Adam to go to the Angels and say “Alsalam Alikom”..and see what they will say…
So Prophet Adam went to see who? The Angels? The great creators from light…the demons created from Fire…and Adam was created from the molded clay…
Adam said to Angels “Alsalam Alikom”, Angels replied “Walikom Alsalam Warhmat Allah Wa Barkatoh”
The angels started to feel safe after they got scared from him during the creation…Allah then called Adam..this is your greeting and the greeting of your decedents.
Then he brought Adam and wiped over his back…and all of his decedents were falling from his back..Allah akbor…billions and billions of people…
Adam…was looking at them..and Allah says…”Those are in heaven, and it doesn’t really matter” and those are in hell and it doesn’t matter [ or I don’t care ]”
The companions of our Prophet asked Prophet Mohamed PBUH
لما العمل اذن يا رسول الله…قال اعملو ، فكل ميسر لكل ما خلق له
If you do the deeds of Heavens people, Allah will guide you there and if u do the deeds of Hellfire people, Allah will guide you there…
Allah then asked these people…Am I not your Lord?, they said yes…this was the beginning…the Fitra…
All these decedents before being created, there at that scene…
{وَإِذْ أَخَذَ رَبُّكَ مِنْ بَنِي آدَمَ مِنْ ظُهُورِهِمْ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ وَأَشْهَدَهُمْ عَلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّكُمْ قَالُوا بَلَى شَهِدْنَا أَنْ تَقُولُوا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّا كُنَّا عَنْ هَذَا غَافِلِينَ. أَوْ تَقُولُوا إِنَّمَا أَشْرَكَ آبَاؤُنَا مِنْ قَبْلُ وَكُنَّا ذُرِّيَّةً مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ أَفَتُهْلِكُنَا بِمَا فَعَلَ الْمُبْطِلُونَ}
So we can be witnesses…on ourselves…
And [mention] when your Lord took from the children of Adam – from their loins – their descendants and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], “Am I not your Lord?” They said, “Yes, we have testified.” [This] – lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, “Indeed, we were of this unaware.”

Allah commanded the angels to prostrate to Adam…All of them did… Except one… فَسَجَدَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ كُلُّهُمْ أَجْمَعُونَ…

He’s not an angel…he’s from Jin..Angels are far greater than him in creation and wisdom…
… فَسَجَدَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ كُلُّهُمْ أَجْمَعُونَ…

الا أبليس ابى ان يكون من الساجدين..قال يا ابليس مالك لم تكون من الساجدين..قال لم اك اسجد لبشر، خلقته من صلصال من حمأ مسنون
See arrogance …see the envy of Ibless…the first ma3syah…the first crime committed in Heavens was the disobeying of Ibless to bow to Adam…

Allah told him “ اخرج منها فأنك رجيم، “
Allah kicked him from the heavens, from the Kingdom, from the honor..
اخرج منها فأنك رجيم…وان عليك اللعنة الى يوم الدين…
And you shall be cursed until the day of Judgement…

Surat Albaqra: And behold, We said to the angels: “Bow down to Adam” and they bowed down. Not so Iblis: he refused and was haughty: He was of those who reject Faith.

We shall not disobey Allah…or his commands, in arrogance…lots of people today are very arrogant for the commands of Allah..

الجنة لا يدخلها رجل في قلبه مثقال ذرة من كبر

Adam was not born ignorant…Adam was taught lots of things by Allah..

Ibn Katheer said that Allah taught Adam all the names of all the angels…

And He taught Adam the names of all things; then He placed them before the angels, and said: “Tell me the names of these if ye are right.”

He said: “O Adam! Tell them their names.” When he had told them, Allah said: “Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth, and I know what ye reveal and what ye conceal?”

Prophet Adam then was given the heaven…and he loved it; fruits, green land, rivers…but Adam was lonely…he started felt alone…استوحش، لا صديق، لا انيس

Imagine..if u were in the best house…

Humans are social and love to socialize…so

So he feels lonely,  he took a nap…and wakes up..sees Hawa.

فعندما شاهد آدم حواء سألها من أنت ولماذا أتيت نحوي؟ قالت حواء أنا خلقني الله عز وجل لأكون انيستك. شعر آدم عليه السلام بالكثيرمن الارتياح والبهجة من سماعه هذا الكلام وسجد سجدة الشكر وقد عقد عقد الزواج بين آدم وحواء بأمر من الله عز وجل. وقد اعتبر القرآن الكريم خلق الأزواج من الأنفس للانسان من الآيات الإلهية حيث يقول في كتابه:

(ومن آياته أن خلق من أنفسكم ازواجاً لتسكنوا اليها وجعل بينكم مودة ورحمة إن في ذلك لآيات لقوم يتفكرون) الروم / الآية 21.

Adam sees Hawa, and asks her who is she…She answers: I am Hawa, your [buddy]. Adam PBUH felt great and thanked Allah.

Allah told Adam

“O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden; and eat of the bountiful things therein as (where and when) ye will; but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression.”

Adam & Hawa stayed in Heavens for a long time, with still Ibless bothering them, trying to tempt them with his evil tree.

Ibless continued to annoy/tempt/talk to Adam and Hawa about the tree. Ibless came up with lies to Adam & Hawa telling them that Allah prevented them from that tree, because if they eat from it, they will become a king and queen for ever…

Adam and Hawa didn’t believe Ibless until one day, Ibless swore that that’s the truth !

19 ) فوسوس لهما الشيطان ليبدي لهما ما ووري عنهما من سوآتهما وقال ما نهاكما ربكما عن هذه الشجرة إلا أن تكونا ملكين أو تكونا من الخالدين ( 20 ) وقاسمهما إني لكما لمن الناصحين ( 21 ) ) .

Adam here never heard someone swear in Allah and lie…so they believed Ibless, and started eating from that tree…

As soon Adam started eating from the tree, the fruits and trees of Heavens started to make sounds, and their clothes were torn. Adam and Hawa were naked, looking at each other, embarrassed, and started to look for leaves to cover their private parts…

Allah punished Adam and sent him to Earth with Hawa and Ibless..

And humanity on earth started….

Allah knows best. Any errors are my own and any truth is only from Allah. And we shall continue in Episode 3 inshallah
