Adam (Peace be upon him) and Iblis (the devil)-2

Adam (Peace be upon him) and Iblis (the devil)
Allah Almighty created Man from dust, he created Adam (Peace be upon him) and called him Ashraf-ul-makhloqaat which means this creation is far better than all HIS creations before. After creating the statue of Adam (Peace be upon him), Allah Almighty blew the Rooh (soul) into Adam (Peace be upon him). He started it from the head or the top, so the most respectable organ human body possesses is human brain. It is in fact today according to science the most important organ. And so the process of life in Adam (Peace be upon him) began starting from the very top, the statue of dust was now becoming blood and flesh as life or soul came into it.
After the brain, the life came to the eyes, Adam (Peace be upon him) opened his eyes. He was well taught by Allah taa’lah already. He had the knowledge of all the existing things already. He was not like us, the way we start learning from the very first day and gradually our knowledge increases. As in the previous article I mentioned that Adam (Peace be upon him) was created as an adult, he never went through infancy or the growing stage. He was a grown up when he opened his eyes.
He opened his eyes and saw the fruits of Jannah (heaven). He knew what they were.  And so when his soul or life came to his nose or mouth, he sneezed, the first thing that Adam (Peace be upon him) did that predicted his life from his nose and mouth was sneezing. One narration says that the Angels asked Adam (Peace be upon him) to thank Allah as Allah had mercy on you. That is why Muslims usually say “Alhamdullilah” (All praise be to Allah) after sneezing.
And as life came to his hands, he stretched them towards the fruits of Jannah (heaven). He wanted to grab the fruits but life had not come yet to his legs so he stood still, but stretched out his hands so he could reach them. This is why The Quran says “Man is always in a rush”. It has the urge to get more. The instinct to rush and obtain was always there from the very first day. In this small life we human beings want to take as much knowledge, money, love, land etc as we possibly can. It was in our nature.
After that Allah Almighty ordered the angels and the Jins to prostrate. Prostration was not to worship Adam (Peace be upon him), but to accept his superior status among the creations. When Allah commanded everyone to prostrate, all of them did, except for one, “Iblis” (Satan) the Jin who was pious and worshipper of Allah until that day. He refused to obey the order of Allah out of arrogance. This was the very first Sin commited against Allah taa’lah.
Iblis called Adam (Peace be upon him) inferior. He made it clear that he was disobeying Allah. So our lesson here is to never think that we are superior or loathe others for being inferior, only Allah has the power and understanding of who among us the superior one and who is inferior. Humility is the keyword here. So after this Iblis demanded a time span until the Day of Judgment to stray this creature and make him not worthy of the Jannah Allah created for him.
