9) Adam Sees Eve

Adam Sees Eve

Ibn Abbas and a group of companions of the Prophet (PBUH) narrated that when Iblis was sent

out of Paradise and Adam was accommodated therein, Adam was alone in Paradise and did not

have a partner from whom he could get tranquility. He slept for some time and when he woke up,

he saw a woman whom Allah had created from his ribs. So he asked her, “Who are you? She

replied, “A woman” He asked: “Why have you been created?” She said :”So that you could find

tranquility in me.” The angels, trying to find out the extent of his knowledge, asked him: “What is

her name, O Adam?” He replied, “Eve”. They asked: “Why was she so named?” He replied, “

Because she was created from something living.”
