Twenty Four Days of Ramadan

Alhamdullillah! We are almost there, I want to share, about the creation of man, our origin. 
When Allah created Adam. 
He said to the angels: Surely, I am going to create a mortal (Bashar) from dry clay: "When I have fashioned him (in due proportion)' and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him."
Surah Saad, 38:71-72

It is We Who created you and gave you shape; then We bade the angels bow down; not so Iblis, he refusesd to be those who bow down.
Allah said: "What prevented thee from bowing down When I commanded thee?" 
The Iblis (devil) said: "I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire and him from clay."
Allah said: "Get thee down from this: it is not for thee to be arrogant, here get out, for thou art of the meanest (of creatures)."
The Iblis (devil) said: "Give me respite till the day they are raise up."
Allah said: "Be thou among those who have respite."
The Iblis said: "Because thou hast thrown me out of the Way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on Thy Straight Way: Then will I assault them from before them and behind them from their right and their left: nor wilt Thou find, in most of them, gratitude (for Thy mercies)."
Allah said: "Get out from this, disgraced and expelled, If any of them follow thee, - Hell will I fill with you all."
O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden, and enjoy (its good things) as ye wish: but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression."
Then began Iblis (devil) to whisper suggestions to them, bringing openly before their minds all their shame that was hidden from them (before): he said "Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest ye should become angels or such being as live for ever." and the Iblis swore to them both, that he was their sincere adviser.
So by deceit he brought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the Garden over their bodies. 
Allah called unto them: "Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Iblis was an avowed enemy unto you?" 
They said: "Our Lord! we have wronged our own souls: if Thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us thy mercy, we shall certainly be lost."
Allah said: "Get ye down, with enmity between yourselves on earth will be your dwelling-place and your means of livelihood, for a time."  "Therein shall ye live, and therein shall ye die: but from it shall ye be taken out (at last).
Surah A'raaf, 7:11-24

The story above is taken from the Holy Quran, Allah (SWT) reminding Prophet  Mohammad through the revelation of the Holy Quran, that we us human being came from mud, and fashioned in due proportion, and breathed into His spirit. Allah (SWT) give us an honour, when the angel bow down to Adam, not Iblis (devil),  is so jealous to Adam (mankind). He whisper to Adam to disobey Allah order. The tree is a test for both of them, because they both eat the fruit of that tree, they realized they both do wrong, and ask forgiveness from Allah (SWT), because of Allah Mercy; He forgive them both, and send down here on earth to dwell. Allah (SWT) give us knowledge to know what is wrong, and what is right. It is we the responsible for all our deeds done here on earth. During this month of Ramadan, Allah (SWT) give us chance to ask forgiveness, and repent for all our sins. May Allah (SWT) grant us all the forgiveness, and blessing in this life, and in the hereafter.
