Adam and Eve are mentioned in my grandfathers book (published in Stuttgart 1906), as the first  humans ( He asked 1906 if Adam had ancestors and ignored  the fact that the  Bible clearly tells that Adam was created by God, something that all childrens had to learn in Biology lessons in Sweden 100 years ago.

I want to share what I know and believe about Adam. Adam was  according to the Bible,  the first man and he was created by God with dust in a Paradise here on Earth.

The qURANIC Adam did not obey God in Paradise. he ate from the prohibited tree. As a punishment he was given knowledge of all creatures on Earth and then sent down to Earth. 

Knowing about this, you ,ay understand why Adam was the first prophet on Earth for the Muslims.
