Ramadan 2020: Taking responsibility for our actions with respect to Adam and Eve

God tried Adam with the goal that he could learn and pick up experience.  along these lines God arranged Adam for his job on earth as an overseer and a Prophet of God. From this experience, Adam took in the extraordinary exercise that Satan is clever, thankless and the affirmed adversary of mankind.  Adam, Eve and their relatives discovered that Satan caused their ejection from heaven.  Obedience to God and ill will towards Satan is the main way back to Heaven.

God said to Adam:

“Get you down (upon the earth), all of you together, from Paradise, some of you are an enemy to some others.  Then, if there comes to you guidance from Me, whoever follows My Guidance shall neither go astray, nor fall into distress and misery.” (Quran 20:123)

The Quran reveals to us that Adam hence got from his Lord a few words; a supplication to implore, which conjured God’s forgiveness.  This supplication is extremely excellent and can be utilized when requesting God’s exoneration of your transgressions.

“Our Lord!  We have wronged ourselves.  If you forgive us not and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers.” (Quran 7:23)

Humanity keeps on submitting errors and wrong doing, and through them  we just damage ourselves.  Our transgressions and missteps have not hurt, nor will it hurt God.  If God doesn’t excuse us and show benevolence toward us, it is we who will clearly be among the losers.  We need God!

Adam and Eve left paradise and slid upon earth.  Their plummet was not one of corruption; rather it was dignified.  In the English language we know about things being either particular or plural; this isn’t the situation for Arabic.  In the Arabic language there is solitary, at that point an extra linguistic number classification indicating two.  Plural is utilized for three and more

At the point when God said: “Get you down, all of you” He utilized the word for plural demonstrating that he was not addressing Adam and Eve alone yet that He was alluding to Adam, his significant other  and his relatives – mankind.  We, the relatives of Adam, don’t have a place with this world; we are here for an impermanent time, as is shown by the words: “for a time.”  We have a place with the great beyond and are bound to have our spot in either Heaven or Hell.

“‘On earth will be a dwelling place for you and an enjoyment, for a time.’  He said: ‘Therein you shall live and therein you shall die, and from it you shall be brought out (resurrected).’” (Quran 7:24–25)


This experience was a basic exercise and shown free will.  If Adam and Eve were to live on earth, they should have been mindful of the stunts and plans of Satan, they likewise expected to comprehend the critical results of wrongdoing, and the unending Mercy and Forgiveness of God.  God realized that Adam and Eve would eat from the tree.  He realized that Satan would strip away their honesty.

It is critical to get that, despite the fact that God knows the result of occasions before they occur and permits them, he doesn’t compel things to happen.  Adam had choice and bore the outcomes of his deeds.  Mankind has choice and along these lines is allowed to defy God; however there are consequences.  God lauds the individuals who comply with his orders and guarantees them extraordinary prize, and He censures the individuals who resist him and cautions them against doing as such.
