    A Prophet of Islam - Prophet Adam

    Last lesson we started talking about the first Prophet, who was also the first human, Prophet Adam, peace be upon him. We emphasized that Prophet Adam was not like an ape and that humans do not come from apes. This is very important to know and believe. The person who believes that humans came from apes is not a Muslim. Anyone who believes this must stop believing it and believe and say the two professions of faith. Then that person would be Muslim.

    Now let us continue. Every person comes from Prophet Adam. Everyone. Good people, bad people, dark skinned people, light skinned people, intelligent people, and ignorant people all come from Prophet Adam.

    Prophet Adam himself was a very honorable man. He was a Prophet, so that means that Allah endowed him with firm faith and belief all his life. He never blasphemed, but instead he worshipped Allah only. His first words were in praise of his Creator.

    Allah gave Prophet Adam the knowledge of the names of everything. This means that Prophet Adam knew these names without a teacher telling him. Adam first lived in Paradise living a very happy life. As we said last month, Allah created a wife for Prophet Adam from Adam’s rib. We know from one of our great Muslim scholars, Ibn ^Abbas, that this was the shortest rib from Adam’s left side. In Arabic we call the wife of Adam Hawwa’, in English she is called Eve.

    Both Adam and Hawwa’ were created as adults. They were tall and beautiful. They were much taller than people are today. Prophet Adam lived in Paradise for 130 years. In Paradise, Allah permitted Adam and Hawwa’ to eat from all the fruits except the fruit from one tree (it is not said that it was an apple tree). The Devil whispered to them to eat from the forbidden tree, and they did eat from that tree. Eating from that tree was a sin, but it was not a great sin.

    You see, sins are of different types. The worst sin is blasphemy. Then there are sins that are great sins. Then there are sins that are small and mean. Then there are sins that are small and not mean. The sin of eating from this tree is small and not mean. Remember how last month we told you that Prophets would never sin, except for the fact they might commit a small sin without meanness? So remember that Adam was a Prophet and know that this sin was small and not mean.

    Also Prophet Adam and Hawwa’ repented of this sin a short time after committing it. They said: "O Allah we did injustice to ourselves. So if You do not forgive us and have mercy on us we will be losers." Allah accepted their repentance. Their sin was erased. This is the mercy of God on the believers. That is, if the Muslim repents properly, God forgives him and that sin is erased.

    Then Allah made Adam and his wife descend from Paradise to earth. The place that Prophet Adam descended to was a mountain on earth call Sa*****bwhich is in Sri Lanka, (an island off the south coast of India). This place is the healthest place on earth with good, clean air. It smells very good there because when Prophet Adam went there from Paradise he was wearing some of the leaves of Paradise. These leaves fell on the earth and plants grew up with the beautiful smell of these leaves. Lady Hawwa’ descended to the Arabian Peninsula and Prophet Adam and Lady Hawwa’ met in ^Arafat which is very close toMakkah. Living on earth they had many children and built homes and other things. Prophet Adam built the Ka^bah in Makkah and this was the first house of worship on earth.

    Prophet Muhammad told us that Allah sent Angel Jibril to Adam and ordered him to build the Ka^bah. Adam built it and was then ordered to go around the Ka^bah; so he did. Prophet Adam was told: You are the first human being and this building is the first building built for the worship of Allah on earth.

    Last lesson we talked about Prophet Adam and this month in our next section we want to continue to talk about him. One of the reasons we want to talk about Prophet Adam a lot is because a lot of lies have been told about Prophet Adam. In this section we want to talk a lot about God and one of the reasons is because a lot of lies have been told about God. These lies don’t hurt God, but they are very harmful for the people who said them and the people who believe them.

    One of the big lies told about God is the one that says that God is a man. We know about ourselves how weak and imperfect we are and yet still some ignorant people think that God is a man. One of the very ignorant people is a man who was named Michelangelo. In school, teachers might tell you that he was the greatest artist of all time, but in the opinion of a believer he is a very harmful man who continues to harm people today with what he did.

    This man painted the inside of a very big church in Italy. One of his giant paintings there is called "The Creation of Adam". He painted an old man with grey hair with his hand stretched out. Next to the old man he painted a young man with his hand stretched out to the old man. Their fingers almost touch. If you look in some encyclopedias they say "Michelangelo showed God giving Adam the spark of life." To paint this is blasphemy. To write this is blasphemy. To believe this is blasphemy.

    This is not the only painting he did of an old man whom he called God. Since he painted these some 500 years ago, they have become very famous. Nowadays reproductions of these paintings are in many books. What might a child think who sees these paintings? This is just one reason why it is so important for us to tell you the truth about God.

    Whatever picture you see is not God. Whatever picture that might pop into your mind is not God. God, Who created humans, angels, and jinn is not like any of them. God is not like the soul, fire, air, or bodies. God is not light. He is not even a strong light. God created very strong lights which we cannot look at and God is not like them. Whatever a person imagines in his mind God is different than that thing he imagined. When we say "imagine" we do not mean the true things you believe in your mind, or the true things that you know with your mind. We mean that any image that comes to the mind is not God.

    We know things about God, from our sound mind and what the Prophets told us, but we will not know everything about God, because there are things that only God knows about.

    We are not like God at all. No person is like God. No creation is like God. Even the best of all the creations, Prophet Muhammad, is not like God at all. God is the Creator and we are created by Him. God gives us the orders and we must obey Him. No one orders God to do anything. God does whatever He wills. God does not have to do anything. No one has the right to order God to do anything.

    This is the One the Muslim worships, the Creator Who is not like His creation. Next month, God-willing, we will warn you about some more lies that people are saying lately about God, our Creator.

    The Creator is different from the creation

    Dear Muslim Youth...

    A Prophet of Islam - Prophet Adam

    Praise be to God, Who sent a lot of Prophets and Messengers to this earth. The first Prophet of Islam is Prophet Adam. Yes, we are talking about the first human whom God created, because he was not only the first human but also a great, respected Prophet of Allah. Know without doubt that humans did not come from apes. No matter how many people talk about it, it is not true. The truth of the matter is that Allah created Prophet Adamafter He had created animals such as apes and the like. Our Prophet Muhammadtold us about the creation of Prophet Adamand the creations which were created before him, so no one should believe differently about these things.

    It is well known that Allah is the Creator of everything you see and you don’t see. As you can see around you all the created things have a beginning. You know this about yourself. There was a time when you did not exist, then you had your beginning. The same is true for the earth, the things on the earth, the sun, the wind, and the sea. These are the things that people call "nature". All of nature has a beginning. If Allah had not created nature, it would not have existed. Nature does not create anything. Allah, the Creator, is different from His creation. Allah does not have a beginning.

    The first thing which Allah created was water. From this "original" water Allah created other things. You see, this water did not exist at all and then Allah made it exist. No one other than Allah has the power to do this. We want to tell you that Allah did not need that "original" water to create the other things, because Allah does not need anything.

    After creating the "original" water, Allah created a giant creation called the ^Arsh. This is a platform with pillars which is the ceiling of Paradise. This really exists although we do not see it now. This platform is up very, very high above the stars and what we see when we look up.

    Before creating Prophet Adam, Allah created all the other kinds of creation like angels, jinn, plants, and animals. He created this earth and others earths. He created Paradise, Hellfire, and seven heavens which are above us.

    After Allah created all the other kinds of creation, Allah ordered an angel to take a handful from all the different soil types on earth. Since angels never disobey Allah, that respected angel did exactly that. Some of the soil was black, some was white, and some was red. He also took from other soils that have colors in between. Some of the soil was soft and some was hard.

    The angel brought all of this soil to Paradise. After the soil was mixed with the water of Paradise it became clay. Allah made this clay dry and hard. Then Allah turned this dry clay into flesh, blood and bones with a human form. After some time Allah gave a soul to this form. As a result the first man became alive. He was called Adam. From one of the ribs of Prophet Adam, Allah created a wife for him. Every human being comes from Prophet Adam.

    Our history is full of great events and people Subhanallah. God-willing (as we say Insha'llah) we will continue to tell you the story of the father of all of us: Prophet Adam.

    Allah is not our father. Allah is our Creator. We all come from Prophet Adam.

    Allah Knows best.

    Prophet Muhammad and the prophets before him told the people about God. They told the people about the proper belief in God. All the Prophets are human. All the Prophets are born from a mother like us, except for Prophet Adam, the first human.

    At some point in their lives Prophets get Revelation from God. At that time, they begin their prophethood. However, even before they become Prophets they have their special characteristics.

    Prophets always have the right belief about God. They never doubted about God’s existence. They never believed false things about God, like that God has a son, or that God needs to take a rest.

    Allah Knows Best.
    Next we will talk about the first Prophet of Islam: Prophet Adam and how Allah created him.

  • Allah The Creator. Allah Exists - Dear Muslim Youth (1)

    We begin with the name of God, we praise God and ask God to raise the rank of our Prophet Muhammad.

    Dear Muslim Youth.. The Islamic Series.

    We want to talk to you about the most important knowledge that you could ever learn. This is the knowledge about God and the Prophets God sent to us. This knowledge is more important than learning a foreign language, or how to fix a car, or learning how to use a computer. How can we say this? Because if a person does not have the proper belief in God and the proper belief about the character of the Prophets, then that person is not a Muslim. If a person dies as an obedient Muslim he will enter Paradise without any torture. He will live there forever, enjoying all the pleasures of Paradise without his pleasure ending.

    Every person should be Muslim. Islam is for every person. Islam is not a Religion just for a certain race or nationality. Islam is for all people. Islam is for you.

    The truth about God is that He exists. He always existed. God existed before He created things. He is still creating things. Everything you see now is created by God.

    God has no beginning. This means that He was not created or born. God is not like us. We die. All of us will die some day. God will never die. Moreover, God has no end.

    God does not change. We change. We start out not knowing things and then we get exposed to things. We learn things and then we may do things. Some of us die at an early age, some of us die at a middle age, and some of us die at an old age. God is not like this. God does not change.

    God does not need anything. God does not need our worship. He does not benefit by our worship. We do. When we do bad things we hurt ourselves. We do not hurt God. God does not need angels, jinn, humans, or anything. He created them all. All of them need Him. Even the ignorant person who does not believe that God exists needs God. God gives him life and a lot of things. But after that person dies he will be tortured forever.
