Categories of Creation of Man – Shaykh b. Bāz

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.

The creation of man is split into four categories:

1. Created from soil without a father or a mother.
2. Created from a man without a woman, and this was Hawwa (Eve), Allah created her from Aadam.

وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا
And from him (Aadam) He created his wife [Hawwa (Eve)]. (An-Nisaa: 1)

3. Created from a woman without a man in opposite to the creation of Hawwa, who was created from a man without a woman and Easa was created from a woman without a man, by Allah’s power and ability he created them both with his statement; Be! And then they were created.
4. The rest of mankind (were created) from a man and a woman, as Allah (Mighty and Majestic) says:

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.

The Fruits of Sincerity, Tawheed, Shirk, Lies And Riyaa

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy

 

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

Ikhlaas and Tawheed are a tree in the heart. Its branches are the (good) actions and its fruits are the good life in this dunyaah and the everlasting bliss in the aakhirah.  And just as the fruits of Jannah are neither cut off (by change of season) nor out of reach, likewise is the case with the fruits of Tawheed and Ikhlaas.  Shirk, lies, and Riyaa are a tree in the heart; its fruits in the dunyaah are fear and anxiety, grief and distress upon the breast and oppression upon the heart. Its fruits in the afterlife are the tree of zaqqoom and an everlasting punishment.  And Allaah has made mention of these two trees in soorah al Ibraaheem:

”See you not how Allaah sets forth a parable? A goodly word as a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky (i.e. very high). Giving its fruits at all times, by the Leave of its Lord, and Allaah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember. And the parable of an evil word is that of an evil tree uprooted from the surface of earth, having no stability”(14:24-26)
