8. AdamTo create Adam, God used clay from the Earth. When Adam was created, his first words were, ?Al-humdulillah,? or ?Praise to be Allah.? He was sent to the Garden of Eden; however, he was not content. God used one of Adam?s ribs to create Eve. Together they lived in peace and they were given one condition: not to eat the fruits of the forbidden tree. Iblis (Lucifer) heard this and he was still envious of Adam. That was because when Adam was created, Iblis refused to bow down before him, so Iblis was cast out of heaven. Iblis plotted and came up with a plan. He described death with grisly details to the peacock, who was living in the Garden of Eden, and Iblis told the peacock the only remedy was to eat the forbidden fruits. The peacock told the snake, who passed it on to Eve, who shared this piece of information with Adam. They decided to eat the fruit, and were cast out of heaven. He was the first prophet, and the first man.
