إِنَّ مَثَلَ عِيسَىٰ عِندَ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ آدَمَ خَلَقَهُ مِن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ
Verily, the likeness of Easa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Aadam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: “Be!” – and he was. (Aali Imraan: 59)
Aadam (alayhis salaam) was created from earth, and Allah revealed (revelation) to him and gave him a legislation to tread upon. Easa (alayhis salaam) was created from a woman without a man, therefore just as it’s not possible to deny (in reality) that Aadam (alayhis salaam) was created from earth, likewise the fact that Easa (alayhis salaam) came from a woman and not a man is not rejected, because in actuality this is easier and simpler than the creation of Aadam (alayhis salaam) from soil – without a father or a mother.
وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا
And from him (Aadam) He created his wife [Hawwa (Eve)]. (An-Nisaa: 1)
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ
O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female. (Al-Hujuraat: 13)
These are the four categories of creation of mankind, and these are from Allah’s signs indicating His great and vast power and ability, that all He has to say is Be! and it occurs.
