Extensive Knowledge of Sayyiduna Aadam

In his highly renowned Tafseer of the Holy Quran – Ruh-ul-Bayan, ‘Allamah Shaykh Isma’ eel Haqqi  , the Qutb of his times, has mentioned details of the extensive knowledge of Sayyiduna Aadam   which was imparted to him by Allah  within a moment through Divine revelation and by virtue of which Sayyiduna Aadam became so dignified that the angels prostrated him in acknowledgement of his superb know ledge and great wisdom.
According to that Tafseer: Allah  taught Sayyiduna Aadam the names of all things in all languages, names of all angels and the names of the complete progeny of Sayyiduna Aadam  ‘ names of all animals, names of all plants and names of all non-living things, names of all the products, names of all the cities and towns, names of all birds and trees and all the beings that will be born until the Day of Judgement, names of all animates and beings, names of all foods and drinks, names of all bounties of the Paradise, names of all objects and even the names of a bowl and a cup. It is mentioned in blessed Hadees that Allah taught him seven hundred thousand languages. (Ruh-ul-Bayan, vol. 1, pp. 100; part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 31)
The Holy Quran has mentioned the abovementioned details of knowledge within a single and short Ayah in a miraculously concise manner. Therefore, Allah says: 
And Allah Almighty taught the names of all things to Aadam.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 31)


Having learnt the extensiveness of knowledge of Sayyiduna Aadam   let’s try to imagine the comprehensiveness of the knowledge of the  Ghayb-knowing Rasool, the Embodiment of Noor   who is not  only the chief of Aadam’s children but also the chief of Sayyiduna Aadam  and all Ambiya furthermore, also the chief vicegerent of Allah . I say, by Allah , the knowledge of Sayyiduna Aadam doesn’t even hold as much significance as compared to the knowledge of  Rasool Muhammad  as a drop of water holds in comparison to an ocean or a dust particle holds in front of the entire earth.  ! How can the knowledge of Aadam be comparable with that of Rasool Muhammad  , the Chief of all!
