How did children of Adam marry?

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: when adam aliasalam and haua (eve)`s first offsprings were both males then how did the next generation got concieved ?

It is not accurate that Prophet Adam (a.s.) and Hawwa’s first offsprings were both males. It has been recorded that Prophet Adam (a.s.) and Hawwa’s offsprings were all sets of twins… one boy and one girl in each set. Some records from the Isralities book of history say that Prophet Adam and Hawwa had 40 sets of such twins, while some records say that they had 20 sets… Allah Alone knows best.


In the Shariah of Adam (a.s.), it was prohibited for the boy and the girl of the same set to marry each other; but it was legal for the boy of one set to marry the girl of another set, and vice versa. That is how the next generation of Prophet Adam (a.s.) was conceived.


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,
