[Answered]Adam and Hawa

Postby zalidina » 28 Jan 2006, 17:52

this question has been bugging me for quite sometime n i cant come up with a logical answer, i was wondering if 1 of u know n can answer this.
as muslims we believe that prophet Adam was the first man on earth and that he had two son habil and Qabil, n that Qabil killed Habil. n then prophet adam has another son who if i m not mistaken became the second prophet. does the Quran say any thing abt how more ppl came into this world coz there was one family on earth. who did the third son of prophet Adam marry? how did he have kids if there were no other humans on earth?

I am not sure but maybe by the time habil died he had his own children.
Qabil too had his children. About P Sheeth maybe he didn't have children not sure

how did habil n Qabil have kids if there was no one else on earth yet? or did Allah send more ppl on Earth? if He did than y do ppl say that we r all children of Adam?

some sources believe that Allah sent houris from heaven to marry the sons of Adam, however many scholars believe that Habil married the twin of Qabil (his sister) and Qabil married the twin of Habil. (an exception)

Sheeth was the executor of Adam's will, who was born five years after Abel was killed by Cain, 235 years after the fall of Adam. He was the offspring of Adam from his issue and Jafeth (Yefith) who were brethren. Allah Almighty sent a Houri for Sheeth and the next day another Houri for Jafeth. when those Houris married Sheeth and Jafeth, a son from the former and a daughter from the latter were born. Theses two cousins, Sheeth's son and Jafeth's daughter, got married later on and thus Adam's generation multiplied. According to Naasikh At-Tawareekh, the marriage between brother and sister is completely rejected. Sheeth was residing in Mecca where he constantly performed major and minor Hajj. He founded Ka'ba with mud and stone. Getting sick, Sheeth appointed his son, Anoosh as executor of his will and eventually passed away at the age of 912 and was buried alongside his parents in the cave of Abo-Ghaabis.

You suggested in your earlier post that Houris were sent for Prophet Sheeth, and now you are suggesting to the contrary by implying the existence of a relationship between brothers and sisters (In this particular context). Please clarify and reference your scholars.

if houris were sent to sheeth and jafeth wouldnt their two children be half humans and half houris? and if they married to each other wouldnt their kids be half houris half human? if thats the case then arent we half human half houris?

I suppose we are then. :roll: A point about Houris, they are women of heaven as Mohdmehdi mentioned and Allah has made them halal for men. :D

Allah created women for the sons of Adam just like he created Hawa for Adam. For the sons of Adam to marry their own sisters is not possible in Islam.

Stories from Quran says that either Allah created houris or they married their sisters.
It is not important.

I dont think so to marry ones sister was ever allowed by Allah. Even in the case of Adam's sons when there was no other women.

I would like to have more information.
