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!
