THE WASIYYAT OF NABI AADAM عليه السلام

THE WASIYYAT OF NABI AADAM

عليه السلام

Before departing from this world, Hadhrat Nabi Aadam (alayhis salaam) made the following wasiyyat to his son, Hadhrat Sheeth (alayhis salaam): “Never have confidence in the world and its life. Allah Ta’ala did not approve of my over-confidence in Jannat. Ultimately, I had to leave from Jannat. Never act according to the desires of women. In fulfilment of the desire of my wife I partook of the forbidden fruit in Jannat. In consequence I was put to shame and regret. Before embarking on any activity, reflect on the consequence. If I had done so, I would not have been humiliated in Jannat. Do not do anything which agitates your conscience. At the time when I began eating from the forbidden fruit in Jannat, my conscience was agitated, but I ignored it. Before doing anything, consult with people of experience. If I had consulted with the Malaaikah before eating of the fruit, I would not have been disgraced.
