Adam (a.s) took Prophet Mohameds wasila

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and Muhammed (PBUH) is his prophet.

There are some people who (I think probably are ignorant or may be misguided) claim that prophet Adam`s (PBUH) repentance and supplication for forgiveness from eating out of forbidden tree was not being accepted untill he made supplication using `waseela` or `wasta` of prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and it was then accepted. Is this true?

May Allah guide us to the right path

Adam (a.s) took Prophet Mohamed’s wasila

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Your Question: Is this true?

There is absolutely no truth to this fabrication and myth that the repentance of Prophet Adam (a.s.) was only accepted after he made the supplication using the ‘waseela’ of Prophet Mohamed (saws)!   This false notion of Prophet Adam (a.s.) using the ‘waseela’ of Prophet Mohammed (saws) is absolutely against the guidance and teachings of the Holy Quran,  where Allah Subhanah has clearly and exactly mentioned what Prophet Adam (a.s.) prayed in his supplication in seeking forgiveness from the Merciful Lord.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 36-37:

36      Then did Satan make them slip from the (garden) and get them out of the state (of felicity) in which they had been.  We said: "Get ye down all (ye people) with enmity between yourselves.  On earth will be your dwelling place and your means of livelihood for a time."

37      Then learnt Adam from his Lord words of inspiration and his Lord turned toward him; for He is Oft-Returning Most Merciful.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 22-23:

22      So by deceit he brought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree their shame became manifest to them and they began to sew together the leaves of the garden over their bodies.  And their Lord called unto them: "Did I not forbid you that tree and tell you that satan was an avowed enemy unto you?"

23      They said: "O our Lord!  We have wronged our own souls:  if Thou forgive us not,  and bestow not upon us Thy Mercy,  we shall certainly be lost."


Thus,  in light of the above clear Aayahs of the Glorious Quran,  it is absolutely clear that Prophet Adam (a.s.) learnt the exact words of the supplication from Allah Subhanah,  and the Merciful Lord accepted their repentance and forgave them.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
