Click for Read in…        HINDI         URDU

              Aalam-e-Arwah! The place where Allah the Exalted took out the seeds of the souls of all those men and women from the back of Hazrat Adam, who will continue to come to the world in the form of their descendants until the Day of Resurrection. And took a covenant from them! That they will worship one Allah, the only partner, and made them a witness! On their own lives. That I am not your Lord! And all the spirits said. Of course! We confess. You are our Lord, and we will worship only you.

             And the place where Allah Almighty created Adam, and the angels prostrated to Adam, And Iblis neck was put the collar of Mardood, that is Devil. Because there are three places mentioned about Adam in the Holy Quran.

  1. The place of Adam’s creation.
  2. Order of transfer to heaven with conditions from the place of creation.
  3. On the condition is broken, order to be removed from heaven and stay on earth for a certain period of time.


رَّبِّ اَعُوۡذُ بِکَ مِنۡ ھَمَزٰتِ الشَّیٰطِیۡنِ ۙ وَ اَعُوۡذُ بِکَ رَبِّ اَنۡ یَّحۡضُرُوۡن ؕ۔

بِسۡمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِۙ۔

Allah’s covenant with the souls in the Aalam-e-Arwah.

وَاذْکُرُوْ انِعْمَةَ اللهِ عَلَیْکُمْ وَمِیْثَاقَهُ الَّذِیْ وَاثَقَکُمْ بِهٖ ۙ اِذْقُلْتُمْ سَمِعْنَا وَاَطَعْنَا  ؗ وَاتَّقُوا الله  ؕ  اِنَّ اللهَ عَلِیْمٌۢ بِذَاتِ الصُّدُوْرِ‏ ﴿۷﴾۔


          And remember Allah’s Favour upon you and His Covenant with which He bound you when you said: “We hear and we obey.” And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is All-Knower of the secrets of (your) breasts. (7)

وَ اِذۡ اَخَذَ رَبُّكَ مِنۡۢ بَنِىۡۤ اٰدَمَ مِنۡ ظُهُوۡرِهِمۡ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمۡ وَ اَشۡهَدَهُمۡ عَلٰٓى اَنۡفُسِهِمۡ‌ ۚ اَلَسۡتُ بِرَبِّكُمۡ‌ ؕ قَالُوۡا بَلٰى‌ ۛۚ شَهِدۡنَا ‌ۛۚ اَنۡ تَقُوۡلُوۡا يَوۡمَ الۡقِيٰمَةِ اِنَّا كُنَّا عَنۡ هٰذَا غٰفِلِيۡنَ ۙ‏ ﴿۱۷۲﴾  اَوۡ تَقُوۡلُوۡۤا اِنَّمَاۤ اَشۡرَكَ اٰبَآؤُنَا مِنۡ قَبۡلُ وَكُنَّا ذُرِّيَّةً مِّنۡۢ بَعۡدِهِمۡ‌ۚ اَفَتُهۡلِكُنَا بِمَا فَعَلَ الۡمُبۡطِلُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۱۷۳﴾۔


          And when your Lord [In Aalam-e-Arwah] brought out the children of Adam from their backs and made them witnesses. On their own lives, [saying to them], “Am I not your Lord?” They said, “Yes, we have testified.” [This] – lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, “Indeed, we were of this unaware.”172” Or [lest] you say, “It was only that our fathers associated [others in worship] with Allah before, and we were but descendants after them. Then would You destroy us for what the falsifiers have done?”173”


1. The place of Adam’s creation.

وَاِذۡ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلۡمَلٰۤٮِٕكَةِ اِنِّىۡ خَالـِقٌۢ بَشَرًا مِّنۡ صَلۡصَالٍ مِّنۡ حَمَاٍ مَّسۡنُوۡنٍ‏ ﴿۲۸﴾  فَاِذَا سَوَّيۡتُهٗ وَنَفَخۡتُ فِيۡهِ مِنۡ رُّوۡحِىۡ فَقَعُوۡا لَهٗ سٰجِدِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۲۹﴾  فَسَجَدَ الۡمَلٰۤٮِٕكَةُ كُلُّهُمۡ اَجۡمَعُوۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۳۰﴾۔


            And when your Lord said to the angels, “I will create a human being out of clay from an altered black mud. And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul, then fall down to him in prostration.”  So, the angels prostrated – all of them entirely,


2. The commandment to stay in Heaven with a condition.

وَقُلۡنَا یٰۤاٰدَمُ اسۡکُنۡ اَنۡتَ وَزَوۡجُکَ الۡجَنَّۃَ وَکُلَا مِنۡہَا رَغَدًا حَیۡثُ شِئۡتُمَا وَلَا تَقۡرَبَا ہٰذِہِ الشَّجَرَۃَ فَتَکُوۡنَا مِنَ الظّٰلِمِیۡنَ ﴿۳۵﴾۔


           And We said, “O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat therefrom in [ease and] abundance from wherever you will. But do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers.”

وَيٰۤاٰدَمُ اسۡكُنۡ اَنۡتَ وَزَوۡجُكَ الۡجَـنَّةَ فَـكُلَا مِنۡ حَيۡثُ شِئۡتُمَا وَلَا تَقۡرَبَا هٰذِهِ الشَّجَرَةَ فَتَكُوۡنَا مِنَ الظّٰلِمِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۱۹﴾۔


           And “O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat from wherever you will but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers.”


3. The order to be transferred from heaven to earth on breaking the condition.

فَاَزَلَّہُمَا الشَّیۡطٰنُ عَنۡہَا فَاَخۡرَجَہُمَا مِمَّا کَانَا فِیۡہِ ۪ وَقُلۡنَا اہۡبِطُوۡا بَعۡضُکُمۡ لِبَعۡضٍ عَدُوٌّ ۚ وَلَکُمۡ فِی الۡاَرۡضِ مُسۡتَقَرٌّ وَّمَتَاعٌ اِلٰی حِیۡنٍ ﴿۳۶﴾۔


         But Satan caused them to slip out of it and removed them from that [condition] in which they had been. And We said, “Go down, [all of you], as enemies to one another, and you will have upon the earth a place of settlement and provision for a time.”

فَدَلّٰٮهُمَا بِغُرُوۡرٍ‌ ۚ فَلَمَّا ذَاقَا الشَّجَرَةَ بَدَتۡ لَهُمَا سَوۡءٰتُهُمَا وَطَفِقَا يَخۡصِفٰنِ عَلَيۡهِمَا مِنۡ وَّرَقِ الۡجَـنَّةِ‌ ؕ وَنَادٰٮهُمَا رَبُّهُمَاۤ اَلَمۡ اَنۡهَكُمَا عَنۡ تِلۡكُمَا الشَّجَرَةِ وَاَقُلْ لَّـكُمَاۤ اِنَّ الشَّيۡطٰنَ لَـكُمَا عَدُوٌّ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏ ﴿۲۲﴾  قَالَا رَبَّنَا ظَلَمۡنَاۤ اَنۡفُسَنَا؄ وَاِنۡ لَّمۡ تَغۡفِرۡ لَـنَا وَتَرۡحَمۡنَا لَـنَكُوۡنَنَّ مِنَ الۡخٰسِرِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۲۳﴾  قَالَ اهۡبِطُوۡا بَعۡضُكُمۡ لِبَـعۡضٍ عَدُوٌّ‌ ۚ وَلَـكُمۡ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ مُسۡتَقَرٌّ وَّمَتَاعٌ اِلٰى حِيۡنٍ‏ ﴿۲۴﴾  قَالَ فِيۡهَا تَحۡيَوۡنَ وَفِيۡهَا تَمُوۡتُوۡنَ وَمِنۡهَا تُخۡرَجُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۲۵﴾۔


          So, he made them fall, through deception. And when they tasted the tree, their private parts became apparent to them, and they began to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of Paradise. And their Lord called to them, “Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you that Satan is to you a clear enemy? They said, “Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, and if You do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers.”

[That is, Adam and Eve asked Allah Almighty for forgiveness for their sin and did not become arrogant like Devil].

         [Allah] said, “Descend, being to one another enemies. And for you on the earth is a place of settlement and enjoyment for a time.”

         He said, “Therein you will live, and therein you will die, and from it you will be brought forth.”
