086 - Adam in Genesis 2 Correlated to the Koran

Genesis 2 is the first main chapter of the Bible about Adam. We were able to find verses in the Koran about Adam that could be correlated to numerous passages from this chapter. Here they are:

Adam 02 - The LORD God (Yahweh)

Adam formed out of DUST (turaab) Suras Al 'Imran 3:59, al-Kahf 18:37, al-Hajj 22:5, Fatir 35:11, Ghafir 40:67
Adam formed out of WATER: Sura al-Furqan 25:54

Adam 08 - Allah's covenant with Adam

BIBLE: NONE -- See, however, Hosea 6:7, which speaks of Adam transgressing a covenant.
KORAN -- ADDED: -- Sura Ta Ha 20:115

Adam 09 - The LORD God planted a garden in Eden as a place for Adam to live in

BIBLE: Genesis 2:8-14
NOTE: Nowhere do we find in the Koran the geographical location of the garden in Eden, nor that Allah should have planted this garden. Only at the end of times pious Muslims, who escape Hell, are promised a Paradise described as a Garden of Eden (jannat 'adan), which appears 11x times in the Koran: Suras al-Tawba 9:72, al-Ra'd 13:23, al-Nahl 16:31, al-Kahf 18:31, Maryam 19:61, Ta Ha 20:76, Fatir 35:33, Sad 38:50, Ghafir 40:8, al-Saff 61:12, al-Bayyina 98,8. However, none of these verses in the Koran are connected with the koranic account about Adam. A Garden (jannat) is mentioned in the Koran six times in connection with Adam: Suras al-Baqara 2:35, al-A'raf 7:19+22+27, al-Hijr 15:37, Ta Ha 20:121.

a) Naming living beings: Sura al-Baqara 2:30-33

c) The relationship between man and woman: Suras al-Rum 30:21 and al-A'raf 7:189
