The Qur’ān contains only fragments of Adam’s story in six differ- ent sūras, apart from several minor references. These may be arranged into five thematic chapters: (1) the creation of man; (2) adoration by angels; (3) Satan’s dis- obedience; (4) the fall of Adam; (5) Adam’s genealogy. The aim of the present study is to name the essentials of the Qur’ānic notion of man as a creature endowed with reason. Adam as the specimen of the human race is bound to obey God’s pre- scriptions. He fails, repents, and is received back and guided. In this way he is considered as the first in the row of prophets of God’s unicity.
