A Quraish verse that is one of the first verses in the Quran to be revealed has revealed the marriage license to the Prophet Muhammad and other early Muslims.
The verse, “So grant us, O Muhammad, the right to marry any one of you except the Prophet,” reads in part.
The first verse of the Qur’an, “Qur’an,” is a collection of chapters in the Holy Quran that deal with religion and the life of the Prophet (saw) and other Muslim leaders.
“In the beginning, God created mankind in His image and then He created the angels,” said Abdul Hakim, a religious scholar at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
“Then He created man, and man created man.
Then He created angels, and angels created man and angels.””
When you say that God created man in His own image and the angels in His likeness, you are saying that the angels created Adam, who was the first human, and God created Adam,” Hakim said.”
God created Adam in His name and He created him from dust.
And God created a human body.
God created that human body and then the angels.
He created a woman, and a man and then a woman and then another woman and the human body.””
You’re saying that God is just like a machine, a piece of metal that’s in charge of creating the world,” Hakic said.
“That’s what he’s doing.”
“If you want to know how a machine works, you’ve got to understand what a machine does,” Hakin said.
Hakim explained that the Qurans first verse is an explanation for the meaning of the verse.
“The verse says, ‘God created man from dust and He made him in His self-image,’ ” Hakim explained.
“And the second verse says God created human beings in His original likeness and God made them from dust, in His very image and likeness, and then in His physical form.”
“And God created the earth, and the heavens and the sea, and all that is in them, and He also created man on the earth and the water and the plants, and water on the land, and men and women and all other living things,” Haki said.
The verses are not only a reference to the creation of mankind, but also to the life and teachings of Muhammad.
“I’m just trying to say that we are talking about the history of this world and we’re talking about people who were born and raised in this world, and they are living and teaching today, and I want to tell them that we love them and we have respect for them,” Hakir said.
But he said that the verse was not meant to be interpreted literally.
“We’re not talking about a literal interpretation of the word, but what God is doing,” Hakig said.
