The Ahlul Bayt (as) in the Holy Qur`an

The Ahlul Bayt (as) in the Holy Qur`an Q A Lesson 12 LO: To understand how Prophet Adams repentance was accepted through the names of the Holy Five (A) Starter: Think back to last lesson, what are the two types of verses in the Holy Quran?

Q A To get us thinking Q A In Sura Baqarah, verses 30 onwards is the story of Prophet Adam (A). Looking at these verses, identify what was taught to Prophet Adam (A), which gave him superiority over the angels? Answer:

[2:31] And He taught Adam all the names, then presented them to the angels; then He said: Tell me the names of those if you are right. In pairs Try to remember the story of Prophet Adam (A) and how he ended up on earth. Create a comic strip describing this story. Prophet Adams (A) return to Allah (SWT) Prophet Adam (A) realised he had made a mistake when he was removed from Heaven as a result of the temptation of Iblis and was placed on the earth. He felt a great deal of regret and sorrow. At the same time, the mercy of Allah was bestowed on him with some effective words by means of which Prophet Adam (A) repented: Then Adam received (certain) words

from his Lord... ...And He turned towards him (mercifully).... It happened because: .....Verily He is oft-forgiving, the most Merciful. What do you think these words were that Prophet Adam (A) received? The words Prophet Adam (A) learnt from the Lord: Prophet Adam (A) immediately returned to his Lord. He repented by the means of the words he received, and his repentance was accepted. Commentators have cited different ideas on the quality and the meaning of the words that Allah (SWT) taught to Prophet Adam (A). The words that were bestowed upon Prophet Adam (A) by the All-Knowing, All-Merciful Lord must have been something very special or extraordinary.

But waitwhat we still dont know what these words are? The words = The names of the Holy five Fatima (A), the original, derived from Allahs name, the Originator of the heavens and earth. Hassan (A), the bountiful, derived from Allahs name, the Benefactor. Ali (A) the high, derived from

Allahs name, the Most High. Mohammed (S) the most praised, derived from Allahs name, the Praised One Husain (A), the good, derived from Allahs name, the Good in Origin. Prophet Adam (A) relied on these words and asked for tawba. Then Allah (SWT) accepted it and forgave him. What is Tawba? The term tawba originally means to return.

In the statements of the Quran, it means: to return from sin. In this case, it means, to return to His Mercy. The Arabic word tawba which is generally understood as repentance does not imply the mere utterance of any verbal prayers. It demands a real and active change in the behaviour as well as the active attitude of the individual towards purity It demands a strong and definite determination on the part of the repenting individual, never again to return to the mistake or the wrongs that had been committed before.
