CHAPTER 1

Allah blessed Nabi Adam [a] and his descendants, his children and grandchildren, and they grew in number and spread through the earth. The children of Nabi Adam [a] built many villages and towns. They ploughed the lands and grew many crops. They lived in comfort and happiness, and were joyous and grateful for Allah’s many favours.

They were one big family, following the ways of their ancestor Nabi Adam [a]. He was the one grandfather of them all, and Allah their One Lord.

shaytan was more jealous and angry than ever before. He, and his children had been cursed by Allah and had been cast out of Jannah, while Nabi Adam [a] and his children had been blessed by Allah and were now enjoying the good of this world. shaytan knew that he and his children would be thrown into the fire of Jahannum, while Adam [a] and his children would be given the beautiful Garden. “That cannot be!” shaytan thought to himself, ”I must take them along with me, with me into the blazing fire of Hell.” But how was he to do that?

shaytan knew that Allah would forgive all sins except one. He knew that Allah would never forgive people who worship others besides Allah, the One. Allah never forgives shirk. For after all, did not Allah alone create and care for all things? Did not Allah alone love and cherish the human being? So how could anyone love any another thing? After all true love accepts no partners, not a single other being!

Now how was shaytan to make the children of Adam [a] worship others besides Allah? Well shaytan had a plot, a plot so wicked it would cause the children of Adam [a] to be thrown headlong into the fire of Jahannum.
