Adam is an arabic word for man. He was the progenitor of human race. He is reckoned to be the first prophet by the Muslims. He was also the first man whom Almighty Allah (subhanaho wa ta'ala) had created from the elements of clay. The Holy Qur'an affirms:
"O' mankind! Surely We created you from dust." ~(30:20)
The gradual process of man's physical development has been referred to in the following verses of the Holy Qur'an:
"He began the creation of man from dust. Then He made his progeny of an extract of water held in light esteem. Then He made him complete and breathed into him of His spirit and made for you ears and eyes and heart." ~(32:7-9)
According to the latest scientific researches, the man has been created from clay with all its elements and their inherent properties. It is discovered by a chemical analysis of the human body that a defect occurs in its normal functioning when the quantity of any of the element gets diminished. In such case, vitamins are used to supplement the deficiency and restore normal health.
