The Story of Adam (part 2 of 5): The Creation of Eve and the part of Satan

When Adam opens his eyes he saw a beautiful women gazing down at him. Adam was surprised and asked the woman why she had been created.She reply that she was to ease his loneliness and bring tranquillity to him.The Angels questioned Adam.  They knew that Adam possessed knowledge of things they did not know about and the knowledge mankind would need to occupy the earth.  They said ‘who is this?’  and Adam replied ‘this is Eve’. Allah Says in the Quran Eve is created from a part of Adam. 

“And God said: ‘O Mankind!  Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam) and from Him (Adam) He created his wife (Eve), and from them both He created many men and women.’” (Quran 4:1)

Dwelling in Paradise: Adam and Eve dwelt in Paradise. Islam tells us that all of Paradise was theirs to enjoy and Allah said to Adam, “eat both of you freely with pleasure and delight of things therein as wherever you will...” (Quran 2:35) . The Quran does not reveal the exact location of where this Paradise was;however that is not on the earth . Allah continued his instructions to Adam and Eve by warning them “...come not near this tree or you both will be of the wrongdoers.” (Quran 2:35) Adam and Eve lived a tranquil existence and understood that they were forbidden to eat from the tree.  However, Satan was waiting to exploit the weakness of Adam and Eve who are the creation of Allah and were given the ability to think . 

Who is Satan? : Satan is a creature from the world of the jinn.. The Jinn are created from a smokeless fire . jinn are like the human's which have the capability to think and to choose between wright and wrong , good and bad , . The jinn's were created before the Adam and Satan was among the best in the jinn . he was elevated to a high position among the angels . 

The Angels prostrated themselves all of them together.  Except Satan, he refused to be among the prostrators.  God said: ‘O Satan! What is your reason for not being among the prostrators?  ‘Satan said: ‘I am not the one to prostrate myself to a human being, whom You created from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud.’  God said: ‘Then get out from Here for verily you are an outcast or cursed one.  Verily the curse shall be upon you till the Day of Resurrection.’” (Quran 15:30-35)
The Purpose of Satan : Satan was there in the Paradise of Adam and Eve and his vow was to misguide and deceive them and their descendants.  Satan said: “…surely I will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path.  Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left…” (Quran 7:16-17)

Satan didn't say to Adam and Eve to disobey Allah where as Satan whispers in the heart of Adam and Eve Satan said to Adam and Eve, “...Your Lord did not forbid you this tree save that you should become Angels or become of the immortals.” (Quran 7:20)  

Their minds became filled with thoughts of the tree, and one day they decided to eat from it.
