Carpe Diem #1382 Adam and Eve

This month, we are studying about the Quran.

For March 5th Chèvrefeuille has chosen a verse from Surah 4: Ayah 1 (an-Nisa’ or “women”). In this verse we can easily see the story of Adam and Eve as we know it from the Bible. Let me give you first the mentioned verse:

[…] “O people! Fear your Lord, who created you from a single soul, and created from it its mate, and propagated from them many men and women. And revere God whom you ask about, and the parents. Surely, God is Watchful over you.” […] (Surah 4: Ayah 1)

And this is what the Bible says about this:
[…] “So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
    and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
    for she was taken out of man.”
