 Inspiration
From the History of Adam (peace be upon him)
 
Narrated in
 
the Holy
Quran
, the Book of God (the Only Deity)
 
The interpretation of meaning from
 
Chapter 2: Verses 31-33
 
 And He (God) taught Adam all the names (of everything) , then He showed them  to the angels and said,
Tell Me the names of these if you are truthful” 
.
 They (angels) said:
 
Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except what you  have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise” 
.
  He said:
 Adam! Inform them of their names,” and when he had informed them  of their names, He said:
 
 Did I not tell you that I know the Ghaib (unseen) in the  heavens and the earth, and I know what you reveal and what you have been  concealing?”  
The interpretation of meaning from
 
Chapter 2: Verses 37-38
 
Then Adam received from his Lord Words. And his Lord pardoned him (accepted his repentance). Verily, He is the One Who forgives (accepts  repentance), the Most Merciful. We said:
 
Get down all of you from this place (the Paradise), then whenever  there comes to you Guidance from Me, and whoever follows My Guidance, there  shall be no fear on them, nor shall they grieve
