ADAM & EVE





In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

And when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to place a viceroy in the earth, they said: Wilt Thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Thy praise and sanctify Thee? He said: Surely I know that which ye know not.

And He taught Adam all the names, then showed them to the angels, saying: Inform me of the names of these, if ye are truthful.

They said: Be glorified! We have no knowledge saving that which Thou hast taught us. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Knower, the Wise.

He 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 secret of the heavens and the earth? And I know that which ye disclose and which ye hide.

And when We said unto the angels: Prostrate yourselves before Adam, they fell prostrate, all save Iblîs. He demurred through pride, and so became a disbeliever.

And We said: O Adam! Dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden, and eat ye freely (of the fruits) thereof where ye will; but come not nigh this tree lest ye become wrongdoers.

But Satan caused them to deflect therefrom and expelled them from the (happy) state in which they were; and We said: Fall down, one of you a foe unto the other! There shall be for you on earth a habitation and provision for a time.

Then Adam received from his Lord words (of revelation), and He relented toward him. Lo! He is the Relenting, the Merciful.

We said: Go down, all of you, from hence; but verily there cometh unto you from Me a guidance; and whoso followeth My guidance, there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.

But they who disbelieve, and deny Our revelations, such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein.

This is strange spam. What say what?

Friend of Allah, look at the rest of the blog, the dino eating the Christian fish is really about the dino, some great plastic art and my current obsession with both.

Last week when I was driving through South Dakota I saw an iron sculpture. It was a skeletal dinosaur being led on a leash by a skeletal human. I appreciated it for it's form, immensity and creativity. It was a fine piece of art even though I believe it insinuates that humans lived at the time of the dinosaurs which is a creationist theory that I believe is false. I, however had the patience to appreciate the point of view and carry on.
