10. The reason due to which Adam (as) was named as Adam (as)

Back to book

حدثنا أبى رضى الله عنه قال حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري عن احمد ابن محمد بن عيسى عن احمد بن محمد بن أبى نصر عن أبان بن عثمان عن محمد الحلبي عن أبى عبد الله عليه السلام قال: إنما سمي آدم آدم لانه خلق من أديم الارض. قال مصنف هذا الكتاب رحمه الله اسم الارض الرابعة أديم، وخلق آدم منها، فلذلك قيل خلق من أديم الارض.


1. My father narrated to us, from Abdullah Bin Ja’far Al Humeyri, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Abu Nasr, from Aban Bin Usman, from Muhammad Al Halby, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘But rather, Adam (as) was named as Adam (as) because he (as) was Created from the crust (أديم) of the earth’. The author of this book said, ‘The fourth firmament is ‘Adeym’, and Adam (as) was Created from it. Thus it is due to that, it is said that he (as) was Created from the ‘Adeym’ of the earth’.
