THE STORY OF ADAM (PART 1 OF 5): THE FIRST PROPHET OF ISLAM

Islam gives us the detail of the creation of Adam :

Allah says to the angels in Quran : “‘Verily, I am going to place mankind generations after generations on earth.’  They said: ‘Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, while we glorify You with praises and thanks and sanctify You.’  God said: ‘I know that which you do not know.’” (Quran 2:30)

So the story of Adam ie The first man on the earth . Allah created Adam from the mixture of the soil containing all the variant available on the earth . The descendants of Adam were destined to be as diverse as the handful of soil from which their ancestor was created; all have different appearances, attributes and qualities.

THE FIRST MAN BEING HONORED BY ANGELS :

Allah says to the angles in Quran : “And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: ‘I am going to create a human (Adam) from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud.  So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him (his) soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him.” (Quran 38:71-72)

Allah has blessed the Adam in many ways . Allah created the Adam from mixtures of all kinds of soil . Allah blessed Adam with the soul . Allah makes ask all the angels to prostrate to him . All the angles did it as the all mighty Allah command them except "iblis" .

THE FIRST SALAM :

Adam was instructed to go to the angels near him and say " Assalamu alaikum (May Allah's Peace Be Upon You) . They responded ‘and say "also upon you be God’s peace, mercy and blessings".

ADAM , THE CUSTODIAN :

Allah didn't created Adam to only worship him but Allah want Adam and his descendants to be the custodian of the earth . So Allah told Adam the things he required to know to perform his duty.Allah says " He taught Adam all the names of everything.” (Quran 2:31)

Allah give Adam the ability to assign names to every thing . Allah taught Adam to speak , communicate , etc . Allah says to the angels " tell me the names of these if you are truthful.’  They answered ‘Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except what You have taught us.  Verily it is You the All Knower, the All Wise.’” (Quran 2:31-32).

Allah Turned to Adam and said : ‘O Adam!  Inform them of their names,’ and when he had informed them of their names, He said:  Did I not tell you that I know the unseen in the heavens and the earth, and I know what you reveal and what you have been hiding?” (Quran 2:33)
The angles were given no capability to reason they were created only to worship Allah . on the other hand Adam knows have the capability to reason , to think , etc . Adam Knows the purpose of the things ie what is the use of different things .
