I would like to participate by including the Arabic version of the story of creation, because it differs from the evangelical version somewhat .. I do not know whether there is credibility or symbolism or whether it can be verified through a new research project using RV in this matter
Here is the story :
" Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."
"And He taught Adam the names - all of them. Then He showed them to the angels and said, "Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful." They said: "Glory to Thee (said the angels), of knowledge We have none, save what Thou Hast taught us: In truth, it is Thou Who art perfect in knowledge and wisdom." He said: "O Adam! Tell them their names." When he had told them, God said (to the angels): "Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth, and I know what to reveal and what to conceal?"
"And behold, We said to the angels: "Bow down to Adam" and they bowed down. Not so Iblis: he refused He was of those who reject faith (those who are disobedient)
"We said: "O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden, and eat of the bountiful things therein as (where and when) ye will; but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression."
"Then did Satan make them slip from the (garden), and get them out of the state (of felicity) in which they had been. We said: "Get ye down, all (ye people), with some of you having enmity towards others. On earth will be your dwelling-place and your means of livelihood - for a time."
Give me your opinion about this? I would really like Farsight team to do a project on this.
Also, you should know that this text is translated from Arabic, knowing that in Arabic words may mean other things ...
In the Qur’an it is not clear whether Adam was a person or a group ? Also, his wife was not identified by name, Eve.
There are many explanations, and I don't know which one expresses the exact meaning ...
In general, I would like to know the truth of these stories through an investigation
