have upon the earth a place of settlement and
provision for a time."

• Adam A.S. was sent to that garden as a test to
learn about his enemy
Ayah 36
• Qaaf Raa Raa – (Qaraar): to become still or
settle down
• Meem Taa Aa’in – necessity of life and
something that a person enjoys; they’re also
– Either they will finish or you will finish
Allah tested Adam so that he could learn and gain
Allah prepared Adam for his role on earth
From this experience, Adam learned that Iblis was
his enemy, the cause of his losing the blessing of
living in Paradise, and the cause of his distress
Obedience to Allah and enmity towards Satan is
the only path back to Heaven.
How does Satan Trick Us?

who is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
Doors of repentance are always open
Ayah 37
• Laam Qaaf Yaa – to receive something; to
accept something with happiness and

that he could repent (Ara’f:23); words through
which they prayed for forgiveness

repentance; stop and turn back to the
obedience of Allah SWT

We said, "Go down from it, all of you.
And when guidance comes to you
from Me, whoever follows My
guidance - there will be no fear
concerning them, nor will they grieve.

• Hamza Taa Yaa – any guidance; revelation
• Taa Baa Aa’in – to follow something
• Khaa Waaw Faa – fear about the future
• Haa Zaa Noon – regret over the past
Ayah 38

companions of the Fire; they will
abide therein eternally."

hell fire together and forever
‫َك َف ُروا َو َكذَُّبُاا ُِبآ ََّي ِنِت َا‬
َّ‫فَ َمنَّ نِتَ ِب ََّع هُدَ َاي‬
of Fire
No Fear
Abode of Fire
No Grief
Adam did not have any experience with the
whisperings and ploys of Satan.
He knew that Satan was his enemy but had
no familiarity with how to resist Satan’s
tricks and schemes.
That experience was essential for their life
on earth
When Allah wanted to create Adam, He
said to the angels: "Indeed, I will make
upon the earth a successive authority." He
did not say: "I shall make a successive
authority in Paradise."
Adam's descent on earth was not due to
degradation but rather it was a dignified descent.
