4) The Prophet’s Covenant

The Prophet’s Covenant

Almighty Allah declared:

 “Remember when We took from the Prophets their covenant, and from you (o Muhammad), and

from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus son of Mary. We took from them a strong covenant. (Ch

33:7 Quran).

In another verse Allah the Exalted commanded:

“So set you (O Muhammad) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifan

(worship none but Allah Alone) Allah’s Fitrah (Allah’s Islamic Monotheism), with which He has

created mankind. No change let there be in khalqillah (the Religion of Allah–Islamic

Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most men know not.” (Ch 30:30 Quran).

Another version of the story relates that Allah took a handful of the dust of the earth and mixed

into it the colors, white, black, yellow and red. That is the reason why men are born different

colors. When Allah mixed the dust with water, it turned into potter’s clay that makes a sound. It

was fermented and had a smell. Iblis passed by, wondering what was going to be made of that

clay. From the clay Allah created Adam. he molded his form with His own hands and blew His

spirit into him. Adam’s body quivered as life was imbued into it.

“Then We drowned the other (disbelievers and polytheists, etc.).” (Ch 37:82 Quran).
