Was Adam 90 feet tall?  Science supports Islam's claims.

  
Evidence from the Quran that Allah Almighty created the People (Children) of Adam through Cloning.   (html backup).  Another STUNNING Scientific Claim from Islam.

  

  

Was Adam created on Earth or in Heaven?

The sections of this article are:

1-  Was Adam created on Earth or in Heaven?
2-  Where did all the human races come from?

  • Were they created from earth? Did Allah create them all differently? Or did we all come from Adam and Eve?
  • 3-  Did Adam perform any Miracle?

      

      

      

    1-  Was Adam created on Earth or in Heaven?

    Adam, peace be upon him, may not have been initially created on earth, but he was created for earth - by and for Allah Almighty's Divine Wisdom and Purpose.  Adam might've been raised to Heaven where Allah Almighty then Created Eve from his rib, or he might've been initially created there in Heaven.  What is confirmed in Islam is that after Iblis was cursed and turned into Satan, he deceived Eve to tempt Adam to eat the forbidden fruit which caused for them to be descended from Heaven onto Earth, and for mankind that came from Adam and Eve to be created on Earth and not in Heaven.  Unlike the in the Bible, which has been proven to be altered and very corrupt, - even according to it's own historians and theologians (see the many quotes in the link), - Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran blamed both Adam and Eve for this and not just Eve alone for being a woman.  The Bible only blames Eve:

    "Of the woman came the beginning of sin, and through her we all die.  (From the New Jerusalem Bible, Ecclesiastes 25:22)"

    "And the man (Adam) said, The woman (Eve) whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  (From the NIV Bible, Genesis 3:12-16)"

    The reason why the above verses from the Bible are doubtful and unreliable is because the Book of Genesis and the rest of the Bible's Books and Gospels were altered and corrupted by man according to the Historians and Theologians of the NIV Bible.

    Why did Allah Almighty allow for the Bible to get corrupted?

    Just who wrote the Bible?!  See the Bible's own theologians and historians' commentaries and quotes stating that the most of the Bible's books were written by unknown people.

      

    Let us look at the following Noble Verses from the Noble Quran:

    Adam was first created on Earth: 

    "Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."  (The Noble Quran, 2:30)"

    Notice here how the Angels were very concerned when Allah Almighty wanted to create Mankind here on earth. They were concerned about Allah Almighty placing those who will do evil and shed blood.  So they had bad experiences in the past long before we ever came to existence.  This further proves that there are other earths and humans beside us in the Universe.  Visit also:

  • " 'And God has produced you from the earth growing (gradually),  (The Noble Quran, 71:17)"

    Iblis became Satan:  "Behold! We said to the Angels, 'Bow down to Adam': they bowed down except Iblis.  He was One of the Jinns, and he broke the Command of his Lord....(The Noble Quran, 18:50)"

    "It is We Who Created you and gave you shape; then We bade the Angels bow down to Adam, and they bowed down; not so Iblis; he refused to be of those who bow down.  (Allah) said: 'What prevented thee from bowing down when I commanded thee?  He said: 'I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him from clay.  (Allah) said: 'Get thee down from this: it is not for thee to be arrogant here: get out, for thou art of the meanest (of creatures).  He said: 'Give me respite till the day they are raised up.  (Allah) said: 'Be thou amongst those who have respite.'  He said: 'Because thou hast thrown me out of the Way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on thy Straight Way: Then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left: Nor wilt Thou find, in most of them, gratitude (of Thy mercies).'  (Allah) said: 'Get out from this, disgraced and expelled.  If any of them follow thee - Hell will I fill with you all.  (The Noble Quran, 7:11-18)"

    Iblis was a Jinn who was raised and lived with the Angels.  He is a powerful Jinn, and Allah Almighty loved him so much that He treated him like an Angel, until Iblis broke Allah Almighty's Commands and turned into Satan and was expelled with disgrace from the Group of the Angels and from Paradise.

    Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him taught us that Allah Almighty Created Eve from Adam's rib:

    Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: "He who believes in Allah and the Hereafter, if he witnesses any matter he should talk in good terms about it or keep quiet. Act kindly towards woman, for woman is created from a rib, and the most crooked part of the rib is its top. If you attempt to straighten it, you will break it, and if you leave it, its crookedness will remain there. So act kindly towards women.  (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Book 008, Number 3468)" 

    Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported: "Woman has been created from a rib and will in no way be straightened for you; so if you wish to benefit by her, benefit by her while crookedness remains in her. And if you attempt to straighten her, you will break her, and breaking her is divorcing her.  (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Book 008, Number 3467)"

    Later Adam and his wife Eve were lifted in Heaven and lived there:  "We said: '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.'  (The Noble Quran, 2:35)"

    Satan caused Adam and Eve to slip from Paradise:  "Then did Satan make them slip from the (Garden), and get them out of the state (of felicity) in which they had been.  We said: 'Get ye down, all (ye people) with enmity between yourselves.  On earth will be your dwelling place and your means of livelihood for a time.  (The Noble Quran, 2:36)"

    The reason why Allah Almighty enabled Satan to deceive Adam and Eve in Heaven is because He, the Almighty, wanted to see whether Satan could deceive Adam and Eve or not.  Satan was not locked in Hell Fire.  In Paradise, after we die, there will be no evil and no deception; "But Allah doth call to the Home of Peace [Paradise]: He doth guide whom He pleaseth to a way that is straight.  To those who do right is a goodly (reward) - yea, more (than in measure)! No darkness nor shame shall cover their faces! They are Companions of the Garden; they will abide therein (For aye)!  (The Noble Quran, 10:25-26)"

    Adam then became the first Messenger of GOD Almighty:  "Then learnt Adam from his Lord Words of inspiration, and his Lord Turned towards him; for He is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.  (The Noble Quran, 2:37)"

    It seems that Allah Almighty had a purpose for allowing Adam and Eve to be deceived by Satan.  I personally can't speak on behalf of Allah Almighty, but it seems that Allah Almighty wanted to filter out the good from evil of Mankind:

    "We said: 'Get ye down all from here: And if, as is sure, there comes to you Guidance from Me, whosoever follows My guidance, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.  But those who reject Faith and belie our Signs, they shall be companions of the Fire; they shall abide therein.'  (The Noble Quran, 2:38-39)"

    "It is He Who has created you; and of you are some that are unbelievers, and some that are believers: And Allah sees well all that ye do.  (The Noble Quran, 64:2)

    "Mankind was but one nation, but differed (later). Had it not been for a word that went forth before from thy Lord, their differences would have been settled between them.  (The Noble Quran, 10:19)"

    "If Allah had so willed, He could have made them a single people: but He admits whom He will to His Mercy: and the wrongdoers will have no protector nor helper.  (The Noble Quran, 42:8)"

      

    The Mighty Test of being on Earth:

    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,2498.msg15738.html#msg15738:

      

    The more I study the infallibility of all humans, including all Prophets, the more and more I understand the following Allah Almighty's Holy Words:

    [017:095]  Say, "If there were settled, on earth, angels walking about in peace and quiet, We should certainly have sent them down from the heavens  an angel for an apostle ملكا رسولا."

    ‏17:95 قل لو كان في الارض ملائكة يمشون مطمئنين لنزلنا عليهم من السماء ملكا رسولا

      
    ملكا رسولا literally translates as an Angel-Prophet.  Even the Angels would need an Angel-Prophet to guide them.

      

    Being a flesh and blood here on earth is not easy.  This is why Allah Almighty had all of the Beings of the World of Command bow to the flesh and blood Adam, peace be upon him.

    It is one of the Signs of Allah Almighty that He has made us different, that we may be tried in the exercise of our will, and that we may reach, through righteousness and Faith, our highest development, and enjoy His gifts of Mercy and Grace.  But we must not become contentious, and fall into evil:  We must understand our own limitations.   Otherwise we shall lose His grace and protection [2].

      

    Detailed Proofs that Gabriel is not the Spirit:

      
    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,3131.msg15652.html#msg15652:

    Question:

    Interesting...but brother Osama one more thing which confuse me, there are two verses in the Quran which are quite similar and it seems to point out that the Holy Spirit is Jibreel, can you please share with me your opinion about it?

    Quran 16:102-106

    قُلۡ نَزَّلَهٗ رُوۡحُ الۡقُدُسِ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ بِالۡحَـقِّ لِيُثَبِّتَ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَهُدًى وَّبُشۡرٰى لِلۡمُسۡلِمِيۡنَ

    SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
    Say, [O Muhammad], "The Pure Spirit has brought it down from your Lord in truth to make firm those who believe and as guidance and good tidings to the Muslims."

    Quran 2:97

    قُلۡ مَنۡ كَانَ عَدُوًّا لِّجِبۡرِيۡلَ فَاِنَّهٗ نَزَّلَهٗ عَلٰى قَلۡبِكَ بِاِذۡنِ اللّٰهِ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيۡنَ يَدَيۡهِ وَهُدًى وَّبُشۡرٰى لِلۡمُؤۡمِنِيۡنَ

    SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
    Say, "Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel - it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur'an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah, confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers."

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother Shaad,

    Great points akhi.  Here is the response:

    1-  Allah Almighty Said in Noble Verse
    2:87 and 2:253, that He fortified Isa (Jesus peace be upon him) with the Holy Spirit: وايدناه بروح القدس.  Also, Allah Almighty told Isa directly that "I fortified you with the Holy Spirit" اذ ايدتك بروح القدس .  See Noble Verse 5:110.

    Jesus was also given the Book that enabled him to perform limited Miracles and even Creation:
    www.answering-christianity.com/jesus_creating.htm


    2-  Allah Almighty also fortifies His creations from humans and Angels and Jinns and others with the Spirit:

    "He sends down the Angels by the Spirit and with His (Allah's) Command to whom He pleases from His creations..." ينزل الملائكة بالروح من امره على من يشاء من عباده .  See Noble Verse 16:2.


    3-  Allah Almighty blows His Spirit
    "from my Spirit" من روحي inside our mothers' wombs to create our Spirits (‏Noble Verse 15:29).  That's what He did with Adam after He made him flesh and blood, dust and water:

    ‏15:29 فاذا سويته ونفخت فيه من روحي فقعوا له ساجدين


    4-  When asked about the Spirit, Allah Almighty responded:

    ‏17:85 ويسألونك عن الروح قل الروح من امر ربي ومااوتيتم من العلم الا قليلا

    "They ask thee (Muhammad) concerning the Spirit, say it is by the Command of my Lord, and little of knowledge was given to you"

    5-  Isa, peace be upon him, was also called
    "A Spirit from Him (Allah)" وروح منه.  See Noble Verse 4:171.

      
    6-  Angels and the Holy Spirit are different:

    The following Noble Verses make this abundantly clear:


    "...The Angels and the Spirit..."
    70:4 تعرج الملائكة والروح اليه في يوم كان مقداره خمسين الف سنة

    "The Day when the Spirit and the Angels stand in line...."
    78:38 يوم يقوم الروح والملائكة صفا لايتكلمون الا من اذن له الرحمن وقال صوابا

    "The Angels and the Spirit descent in it (the Night of Power)...."
    ‏97:4 تنزل الملائكة والروح فيها باذن ربهم من كل امر

      
    "The Holy Spirit
    روح القدس sent It (the Quran) down from your Lord...."
    16:102 قل نزله روح القدس من ربك بالحق ليثبت الذين امنوا وهدى وبشرى للمسلمين
      
    "The Trustworthy Spirit brought It (the Quran) down"
    26:193 نزل به الروح الامين


    7-  Allah Almighty's Spirit "Our Spirit" روحنا appeared as a man to Mary to impregnate her:
      
    ‏19:17 فاتخذت من دونهم حجابا فارسلنا اليها روحنا فتمثل لها بشرا سويا

    21:91 والتي احصنت فرجها فنفخنا فيها من روحنا وجعلناها وابنها اية للعالمين

    66:12 ومريم ابنت عمران التي احصنت فرجها فنفخنا فيه من روحنا وصدقت بكلمات ربها وكتبه وكانت من القانتين

      

    Putting it all together:

    So the Holy Spirit creates our spirits, fills the Angels, humans, Jinns and all creations by the Command of Allah Almighty, and is responsible for bringing down the Holy Quran to Prophet Muhammad through Angel Gabriel, peace be upon him.

    Gabriel is not the Holy Spirit.  Gabriel follows the Commands of the Holy Spirit that are sent straight from Allah Almighty.  Allah Almighty made three realms:

    (a)-  The realm of Allah and His Heaven.

    (b)-  The World of Command.  This is where all of the Spirits and Selfs and Angels, and creations of the Spirit, and creations of the Word, and creations of the Light, and creations of the smokeless Fire, and creations of all other things are in.

    (c)-  The World of flesh and blood, dust and water creation.

      

    It seems clear that Allah Almighty made the Holy Spirit be the One in Charge to run the entire World of Command.  For more, please visit:
    www.answering-christianity.com/quran_creator_or_created.htm
    www.answering-christianity.com/holy_spirit.htm


    I think of it as my parents' sperm and egg.  Allah Almighty put those two microscopic beings to create me.  And made the Holy Spirit blow my spirit in this flesh and blood creation of me.  Angel Gabriel did not blow the Spirit in me.


    I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah
      

      

      

    2-  Where did all the human races come from?  Were they created from earth?  Did Allah create them all differently?  Or did we all come from Adam and Eve?

    Again, as I mentioned above, there is Evidence that Allah Almighty created the Children of Adam through Cloning.  Cloning is mentioned in multiple places in the Glorious Quran, as shown in the link, and in this article below.  Cloning is also one of the End of Times Prophecies.

    Also, according to the Noble Quran, all humans were created from earth:

    "From the (earth) did We Create you, and into it Shall We return you, And from it shall We Bring you out once again.  (The Noble Quran, 20:55)"

    " 'And Allah has produced you from the earth, Growing (gradually), And in the End He will return you Into the (earth), And raise you forth (Again at the Resurrection).'  (The Noble Quran, 71:17-18)"

    Allah Almighty created all of the races and genders.  Even though Adam peace be upon him was the first Mankind-Creation by Allah Almighty, but no one is really certain that all of us came from his loin.  In other words, it is possible that Allah Almighty later on created more people and more races after Adam and Eve and their children.  As I mentioned, there is evidence from the Holy Quran that suggests that Mankind was created through cloning from Adam's children.

    Please visit The Bible claims that Sarah (Isaac's mother) was Abraham's biological sister, and read the "But Moses' law came centuries after Abraham" section where I showed the Bible's claim that not all humans came from Adam's loin.

    3-  Did Adam perform any Miracle?

    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,2884.msg13743.html#msg13743:

    .... I think we should approach it as follows:

    1-  Prove that John's book is the gossip of "John", and not the Gospel of John.  The book had been altered and written by mysterious people:

  • www.answering-christianity.com/authors_gospels.htm
  •   
    2-  Prove that Jesus, WITH ALL HIS GLORY, remains a helpless SLAVE to GOD Almighty as all of us.

  • The Bible does call Jesus THE SLAVE OF GOD: http://www.answering-christianity.com/jesus_called_slave_in_bible.htm
  •   

    3-  Explain John 1:1 from the Islamic context as I demonstrated above.

    No need to beat around the bush.  The verse is worthless and so is the entire argument of trinity.  Jesus was created from the Word like Adam, peace be upon both of them.  This is why both of them were Miraculous.  One of Adam's Miracles was that he was given the knowledge to know all of the names of the Beings in the World of Command:

    [002:031] And He taught Adam the names of all the things. Then, presented them before the angels and said, “Tell Me the names of all these (things) if you are right.”

      

    Jesus also was given the BOOK that enabled him to do limited Miracles, including limited creation:

    A Numerical Miracle:

    By the way, there is a Numerical Miracle in the Glorious Quran regarding Adam and Jesus, peace be upon them both:
