Quran (Pickthall Translation)
2:30: 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.
2:31 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.
2:32 They said: Be glorified! We have no knowledge saving that which Thou hast taught us. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Knower, the Wise.
2:33 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.
2:34 And when We said unto the angels: Prostrate yourselves before Adam, they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He demurred through pride, and so became a disbeliever.
2:35 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 wrong-doers.
2:36 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.
2:37 Then Adam received from his Lord words (of revelation), and He relented toward him. Lo! He is the relenting, the Merciful.
2:38 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.
2:39 But they who disbelieve, and deny Our revelations, such are rightful Peoples of the Fire. They will abide therein.
I'm here addressing an issue that has been on my mind for quite some time now. There have been multiple posts about Adam and Eve (Peace be upon them), and MANY members of the Forums (claiming to be Muslims) talk about "the original sin" that causes all suffering and ext in this world.
That's WRONG! In the BIBLE it falsely teaches that God banished Adam and Eve from the Garden, and the sin they did carry into every newborn baby. The Christians then go on to say that Jesus died on a cross for your sins.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG!
In the first place, Allah is oft Merciful, so he forgave Adam & Eve (Peace be upon them) for the sin they did (as indicated in the above verses). Therefore, unlike Christians, Muslims do not believe that Adam and Eve is the cause of all suffering (Peace be upon them). (I have seen TOO many Muslims on this forum say that Adam and Eve is the reason for all suffering)
Babies are therefore born INNOCENT.
And Jesus (Peace be upon him) did NOT die on a cross so you can be forgiven of your sins. Jesus (Peace be upon him) is a Prophet, not the "son of god". The concept of the Trinity is false, there is only one god, and he is God (Allah is Arabic for God)
I hope that this post clears up the issue.
