Surah Baqarah Full.pdfl



Many commentators give a physical account of this section of surah Baqarah, which raises countless questions, which we will bring out under a specific heading below. Other commentators mix and match physical and metaphorical. Similar criticism applies to them as well. We believe that this section is best understood only as a metaphor, even if some component of the story were physically true! The prophet Adam may have been given an elaborate dream or some other revelation of this moral and spiritual paradigm that God wanted to establish for the nascent humanity as framework, as he embarked on a spiritual relationship, some 6000 years ago, with its Creator, having evolved from the apes over the previous 6 million years. The modern humans have existed for some 200,000 years.


In this surah it is mentioned that the angels bowed themselves to the prophet Adam, while in surah Sad, it is said that they bowed or prostrated to the whole of humanity. None of us can recall the angels ever having prostrated literally to anyone of us. Therefore, they did not bow literally to humanity at large, at least.


The account in surah Hijr details that all the angels prostrated together. Additionally, the literalists tell us that there are countless angels for almost every phenomenon of nature, from rain, to sunshine to moonlight. Each human carries two angels on his or her shoulders, given the present human population of 7 billion, and imagining that human race may continue for a thousand or more generations, we can postulate at least a trillion angels, simply of this category. From the perspective of Adam, a trillion angels bowing to him, he could hardly tell that there is one dissident, namely Satan, in such a large crowd!


The story cannot be literally true, for in surah TaHa we read that when Adam and Eve ate of the tree, their nakedness was exposed to them and they began to cover themselves with the adornments of the garden. Their is not such fruit or tree that causes human nakedness and the passage has to be read metaphorically.
