The First Man (Ahadith 2942 – 2944)

Bismillah.

Kitaab Ahaadith-ul-Anbiyaa’ [Book of the Stories of the Prophets] starts today..

Chapter: The creation of Adam and his offspring

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 543 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall. When He created him, He said to him, “Go and greet that group of angels, and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring.” So, Adam said (to the angels), As-Salamu Alaikum (i.e. Peace be upon you). The angels said, “As-salamu Alaika wa Rahmatu-l-lahi” (i.e. Peace and Allah’s Mercy be upon you). Thus the angels added to Adam’s salutation the expression, ‘Wa Rahmatu-l-lahi,’ Any person who will enter Paradise will resemble Adam (in appearance and figure). People have been decreasing in stature since Adam’s creation.

Needless to say, we don’t believe in Darwinism. Allah created the first man with His own hands and breathed his soul into him. He created Adam from dust:

“Verily, the likeness of ‘Eesa (Jesus) before Allaah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: ‘Be!’ — and he was”

[Aal ‘Imraan 3:59]

Allah taught Adam names of things and, as it states in the hadith above, manners as well. The Islamic greeting isn’t new to Islam. It’s been there since the beginning of human life. Adam was the first to use it and we should own it with pride. It’s better than all the hello’s and hi’s.

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 544 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The first group of people who will enter Paradise, will be glittering like the full moon and those who will follow them, will glitter like the most brilliant star in the sky. They will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Their combs will be of gold, and their sweat will smell like musk. The aloes-wood will be used in their centers. Their wives will be houris. All of them will look alike and will resemble their father Adam (in statute), sixty cubits tall.”

Everyone in Paradise will be equally beautiful. No competition there. ;)

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 545 :
Narrated by Abu Salama (radiallaahu `anhu)
Um Salama (radiallaahu `anhaa) said, “Um Salaim (radiallaahu `anhaa) said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! Allah does not refrain from saying the truth! Is it obligatory for a woman to take a bath after she gets nocturnal discharge?’ He said, ‘Yes, if she notices the water (i.e. discharge).’ Um Salama (radiallaahu `anhaa) smiled and said, ‘Does a woman get discharge?’ Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said. ‘Then why does a child resemble (its mother)?”
