"the islamic idea doesnt consider that tree as "tree of knowledge."
On the other hand Qur'an says that God Himself taught Adam the 'name of all things', i.e. Knowledge and that made Adam superior to even angels as
angels only had limited knowledge(according to their job) but Adam(Man) got the potential to get as much knowledge as needed. "
yes, but did God teach Adam the knowledge of good and evil? if He did not then eating the fruit would not have been sin. If He did then what incentive
would Adam have had to eat from the tree? Eating of the tree actually would have had no effect on him if so.
yes i do. God forbade eating from the tree as a 'test.'
The plan was already to send them on Earth but after a lesson.
The command was 'not to eat' from the tree the consequence was being kicked out from heaven.
It wasnt the birth of sin, sin had already happened when devil refused to bow.(actually even before that, the djinns were already on earth with free
will and so sins)
The sin are of two kinds here,
1)sin that deserve punishment.
2)sin that leads to its consequence.
Being expelled wasnt a punishment, it was a natural consequence.
Because if it was a punishment then the sin wasnt forgiven.
The one's worthy to stay in Heaven are them who submit and obey God fully, Adam and Eve failed and were sent to earth for 'a while' to learn and
return back but they were forgiven about the disobedience. We are not here as a punishment rather just a test.
