Abstract:   (1171 Views)
The story of the creation of Adam is one of the most important issues in the Bible, the Qur'an, and the Islamic Hadiths. Following these sources, Muslim theosophists have generated extensive discussion about this story, examined the events before Blowing the Soul, and explained the details of creation. Early theosophists have used ascetic Sufism to deal with this issue in accordance with the Quranic verses, but some later theosophists have distanced themselves from the Quranic aspect of the discussion and have expressed their own ideas in form of a fictional story. Examining Sufism prose texts of the 5th-7th centuries, the present study aims to show this mystical story is deeply rooted in Isra'iliyyat, but Iranian theosophists have used it a means of expressing mystical issues such as Allah’s love and divine trust, Light of the Prophet of Islam or (Noor-e-Muhammadi), the soil importance, humility and his closeness to the Almighty God, God’s exclusive love of some people, etc.
