To members of Islamic Organization for Dawah
By: Mohamed Riswan.
A. The first human created by Allah was Adam, and the first thing created was the pen. Allah says:
“(Remember) when your Lord said to the angels: Truly, I am going to create man from clay.” [Noble Qur’an 38:71]
And as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“You are all the children of Adam, and Adam was created from dust.” [Al-Bazzar]
The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] also said:
“The first thing created by Allah was the pen” (This is after the creation of water and the Throne) [Abu Dawud , Tirmidhi]
Regarding the Hadith:
“The first thing Allah created (O Jabir) was the light of your Prophet” is a forgery, which contradicts the Qur’an, Sunnah, reason and revelation. As-Suyuti said of it: This (Hadith) has no supporting chain of narration. Al-Ghamari said of it: It is a forgery. Al-Albani says: It is rejected.
