ENMITY will always prevail among HUMAN BEINGS

Sayyiduna Aadam and Sayyidatuna Hawwa used to live a peaceful and prosperous life in Paradise. Allah had allowed them to eat all fruits of Paradise without any restriction. However, they were forbidden to go near a specific tree and eat its fruit. It was either a wheat or grapes tree  etc. Hence, both of them restrained from that tree for a long time. Their enemy i.e. Iblees was planning tricks against them. Finally, one day he succeeded in putting whispers in their hearts. He swore before them and said, ‘I am your well-wisher. The tree from which Allah has prevented you is   meaning, the one who eats the fruit of this tree will never be expelled from the Paradise.’
At first, Sayyidatuna Hawwa  became the victim of this satanic whisper, and later she also convinced Sayyiduna Aadam – Hence, Sayyiduna Aadam unintentionally ate the fruit of that tree. From his inference, Sayyiduna Aadam assumed that the prohibition in  1 was ‘Nahi Tanzeehi’ (a soft prohibition) and not ‘Nahi Tahreemi’ (a strict prohibition). Otherwise Sayyiduna Aadam  ‘ being a Nabi, would have never eaten the fruit from the prohibited tree as a Nabi   is absolutely secured from committing any sin. Nevertheless, in this incident, a mistake based on inference was committed by Sayyiduna Aadam    and such a mistake is never sinful.
([afseer Khazaain-ul-‘Irfan, pp. 1094; part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 36) 
But, since Sayyiduna Aadam   was high­ ranked in the court of Allah , he t  was held accountable even for this mistake. So, the heavenly clothes fell off from the bodies of Sayyiduna Aadam   and Sayyidatuna  Hawwa  instantly and both of them  started hiding their ‘Satr’ (private parts) with the leaves of the heavenly trees. Then Allah commanded them to leave the Paradise and descend on the earth. At that occasion, Allah   told two special things to Sayyiduna Aadam – One was that, in his progeny, enmity will prevail among the humans. The second was that both of them will have to stay on the earth for rest of their lives, and then they will surely return to Allah . While mentioning this parable in the Holy Quran, Allah   says:
Then Shaytan (Satan) caused them to slip up from Paradise and separated them from the place where they dwelled, and We said, ‘Go down (as) enemies to one another! And you will have on the earth a place to dwell and provision for a time.’
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 1, Surah AI-Baqarah, Ayah 36)
From this Divine Commandment, we can understand that the contentions and hostilities which exist among the people due to various reasons will never end. Despite making unceasing efforts to put an end to these contentions and hostilities among people, these contentions and hostilities will never end since it has been mentioned by Allah  . Sometimes one country will be the enemy of another country, sometimes hostility will exist between a labourer and a capitalist, occasionally the hostility between the rich and poor will intensify. At times, hostilities due to difference of religion or language will ignite. From time to time, the hostilities of inter-cultural discords will occur and sometimes the hostilities among the believers and unbelievers will take place.
In other words, discords among human beings will always exist. Therefore, the people don’t need to be depressed and worried due to these hostilities. Nor is there any benefit in getting worried about the solutions to these discords.
As the enmity between darkness and the light, water and fire, hot and cold can never end, likewise the enmity between human beings can never end. This is because Allah had already mentioned before the advent of Sayyiduna
Aadarn and Sayyidatuna Hawwa on the earth:  meaning, amongst you one is enemy of another. Therefore, these discords are natural and are prevalent as per will of Allah  . So who can wipe out these discords from the world?
