What was the name of the tree whose fruit was forbidden in Paradise?

- They say there was a tree in Paradise... It was forbidden to eat its fruit... Satan tried to deceive our father Adam but could not deceive him...

- Then, he deceived our mother Hawwa (Eve) and she influenced her husband... They ate the fruit of the forbidden tree... Allah punished them and sent them to the world...

- Did something like that really happen? What was the name of that tree? Had Satan not been expelled from Hell beforehand?

The Quran does not tell us the name of the forbidden tree... It does not tell us why were forbidden to touch it either...

“Satan tried to deceive our father Adam but could not deceive him... Then, he deceived our mother Hawwa and she influenced her husband and so on...” There is no such information in the Quran.

Satan does not necessarily have to be near a person to be able to send something to his heart. As internet users, we can understand it more easily now...

A person produces a virus in a distant country, sends it at the speed of light and crashes your computer... He does not have to come...

We should talk after getting definite information. Adam and his wife were apparently guests in Paradise... There were some boundaries that they should not exceed... That test was a small model of the test in the world...

“What was the name of tree? Did it have fruits? Why was its fruit forbidden? Which one bit it first?” Details like that are of no use to us.

The theme of the “forbidden tree” may even be a sign showing the boundaries of the legal space given to man...

The basic fact that we need to know is this: A ban was imposed on the Prophet Adam and his wife...

Satan was jealous of man; he disobeyed the command to prostrate and became an unbeliever. They themselves witnessed it. They should not have crossed the boundaries

What matters is the that Lord made it haram, told them not to approach it and forbad something…

The same thing holds true for this world... Allah tells us do something and we do it... He tells us not to do something and we do not do. What matters is obedience. Sincere worship occurs like that.

There are definitely many wisdoms, purposes and benefits behind those prohibitions. They can encourage some people...

Even if we do not know any benefits of the commands and prohibitions, we have to obey them.

Satan tried to rebel by resorting to philosophy and reasoning, and went astray. If he had obeyed the command first and then asked for its reason, there would have been no problem...

However, he could not bear it because he was jealous of man. Jealousy led him to hatred, hatred to conceit, and conceit to rebellion...

He wants to lead us astray too!
