A very astute observation. Thanks. In fact, in chapter 17 of the Koran (chapter titled The Night Journey
), the Koran explicitly states that the Muslim god “has not begotten any child… has no partner in the kingdom, nor has any to protect him from contempt; and magnify him by proclaiming his greatness” (translation by Sale, 1909, et passim
). This is reiterated in ch. 112 (titled, The Declaration of God's Unity
The Koran, ch. 23 (titled The True Believers
) does contain several verses about the creation of man but it's nothing like what we read in The Holy Bible. The Muslim god created man in both good and evil states, and not in his (the Muslim god's) image. In ch. 40 (The True Followers
), the Koran states, "The creation of heaven and earth is more considerable than the creation of man.” This belief by Muslims opposes the teaching in the Holy Scriptures that man is the highest creation of God.
Finally, in ch. 51 (The Dispersing
),the Koran states that god “(has) not created genii (that is, fallen angels) and men for any other end than that they should serve me.”
After studying the Koran, I've learned to appreciate the saying, "Know your enemy."
By the way, as for the OP, in ch. 20 (simply titled T. H.
), the Koran suggests that god will provide for Adam food, clothing, drink, and protection from the heat. But Adam and Eve ate in the garden “and their nakedness appeared unto them.” In other verses throughout the Koran, nakedness is not tolerated, and covering for the body is either required or expected. Here, god purported to provide clothing for his (the Muslim god's) Adam and Eve pre-Fall. In the Holy Scriptures, there was no shame in nakedness pre-Fall: "And they were both naked, man and his wife, and were not ashamed" (Genesis 2:25). Plus, there were only limited times when nakedness was not tolerated (or not appropriate) after the Fall, as most of us here believe.
