A Shi'ite Encyclopedia (chapter 9)

Where Is This God? / Where Is This Man?

If you remember, we discovered that Allah has a few fingers, two legs which are left leg and right leg, and a special sign on one of his leg which is known only to my sunni brothers and they will know God in Ghyamat (the other day) using this special sign on the leg of the God.

When searching for the creation of Eva (woman) and Adam (man), I finally found out more about the almighty God. He is smaller than one of the buildings in New York city, or a tree. He is only 30 meters. Combining these signs of the almighty, I hope to become more familiar with the God, the most high (!!).

I also urge islamic and nonislamic scientists to search for the first human being on earth, named as Adam. He is 30 meters tall. Also, if scientists carefully examine the remained skeletons along with history, they have to be able to find a linear pattern for the hight of human beings up to their father.

The reason is that human being is decreasing in its hight from 30 meters to 1.7 meters these days. I assure scientists that any other results is wrong, and they have to investigate more about this before finalizing their research. For example, if they find ice-man to be almost as tall as the present man, they must be wrong. The older, the taller the skeleton must be.

May Allah guide our scientists to the right path. (In fact, I wonder why they do any research. They have to obey these traditions and issue their scientific rules immediately. Although a hadith is not equal to one verse of Quran, are we not supposed to listen to traditions and obey them?)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam in His picture, sixty cubits (about 30 meters) in height. When He created him, He said (to him), "Go and greet that group of angels sitting there, and listen what they will say in reply to you, for that will be your greeting and the greeting of your offspring." Adam (went and) said, 'As-Salamu alaikum (Peace be upon you).'

They replied, 'AsSalamu-'Alaika wa Rahmatullah (Peace and Allah's Mercy be on you) So they increased 'Wa Rahmatullah' The Prophet added 'So whoever will enter Paradise, will be of the shape and picture of Adam Since then the creation of Adam's (offspring) (i.e. stature of human beings is being diminished continuously) to the present time."

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall. When He created him, He said to him, "Go and greet that group of angels, and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring." So, Adam said (to the angels),

As-Salamu Alaikum (i.e. Peace be upon you). The angels said, "As-salamu Alaika wa Rahmatu-l-lahi" (i.e. Peace and Allah's Mercy be upon you). Thus the angels added to Adam's salutation the expression, 'Wa Rahmatu-l-lahi,' Any person who will enter Paradise will resemble Adam (in appearance and figure). People have been decreasing in stature since Adam's creation.

Then you said:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam in His picture, sixty cubits (about 30 meters) in height. When He created him, He said (to him), The "His" article here means Adam, which means that Allah created Adam in his picture, i.e. Adam was not a child then grew up like other people. This also means to refute darwinism: Adam was created in his known picture (60 cubits...) and did not derive from any other animal creature.

In the Hadith, the word which is used as "his picture" is :

Ala Soorateh

We know that Allah knew his plan for the entire world from the beginning except that human beings are not aware of that. Such plan is "PLAN". It is not a picture of something. When you say that you have a picture, it means that you DO exist. You exist, hence, you have a picture. So, picture is the attribute of an existing thing or human being. That is why a photograph is called a "picture". If you see the picture of an animal, you will say that such animal DOES exist, or it DID exist.

When Allah wanted to created Adam, there was no Adam. There was no picture of Adam, since there was no Adam. As the rsult of this reasoning, "His" in "His picture" refers to the God, and does not refer to Adam.

On the other hand, a plan which is not implemented yet remains a plan and is never referred as picture. The hadith could have been spoken as:

And Allah created Adam based on his plan, Or And Allah created Adam by his knowledge, Or And Allah created Adam by his power.

You can never find a single hadith anywhere (Even a garbage Hadith) that is said:

And Allah created the earth in its picture.

And Allah created a cow in its picture.

There is no single verse in the so called Twisted bible or the book of traditions where God has created an ass in its picture. There is, however, some lines at the beginning of the old testement LIKE:

And Yahowah created Adam by his picture.

The reason is simple. When we are talking about a PLAN, it is a plan, and it is not a picture. You doubt, ask 5 billion normal human beings and they will tell you what they understand from this statement.
