A brief symbolic story of human being according to the Quran and Bible.
by Kian

(Note: The Quran heals the Bible)

Part I: Genesis

Gen 2:7
Then the LORD God took some soil from
the ground and formed a man out of it; he
breathed life-giving breath into his
nostrils* and the man began to live.

Gen 2:19
So he took some soil from the ground and
formed all the animals and all the birds.
Then he brought them to the man to see
what he would name them; and
that is how they all got their names

Quran 32:7 --- Thus He initiated the creation of the humans from hydrated inorganic matter.

Q.32:8 Then He made him to be reproduced out of the essence of a mere fluid. [The inorganic matter was hydrated and life was initiated from its extract. Eventually, the evolution reached a point when procreation with male and female gametes was established. 37:11]

Q.32:9 (Then emergent evolution took place that distinguished humans from the animal kingdom.) He shapes him in accordance with what he is meant to be, and breathes into him of His Energy. And thus (O Mankind) He gives you the faculties of hearing, sight, reasoning and feelings. Yet, how seldom are you grateful by making the best use of your perceptual and conceptual faculties! [Af’idah = Minds = Intellect = Faculty of reasoning including feelings. 17:36, 45:23, 46:26]

Q.2:31 And God endowed mankind with the capacity to attain knowledge. Then He showed the angels certain things and said to them, “Tell me if you have the capacity of learning about these, if you are truthful (and better qualified to have supremacy on the planet earth).” [‘Allam-al-Aadam-al-Asma = He endowed
humankind with the capacity to attain knowledge]

Q.2:34 --- We said to the angels, “Humble yourselves and be subservient to Adam-mankind, they instantly complied humbling themselves. But Iblees (Satan) refused through self-glorification, and so became a rejecter of the Divine Command.
