Narrated by Abu Huraira: The Prophet (S.A.W.) said, “Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall” (Al-Bukhari: 3326)
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “Adam and Moses argued with each other. Moses said to Adam. ‘You are Adam whose mistake expelled you from Paradise.’ Adam said to him, ‘You are Moses whom Allah selected as His Messenger and as the one to whom He spoke directly; yet you blame me for a thing which had already been written in my fate before my creation?”‘ Allah’s Apostle said twice, “So, Adam overpowered Moses.”
Hazrat Adam’s Life and Teachings
Being the first human being Allah created, Hazrat Adam was tasked with spreading humanity over the globe. He was in paradise up until the point when he succumbed to Satan’s temptation and consumed fruit from the cursed tree, causing him to be kicked out. Allah pardoned him, nevertheless, and granted him the opportunity to survive on the planet.

Even after making a mistake, he maintained his faith in Allah and continued to adore him. He also stressed the value of upholding Allah’s teachings and leading a moral life to his kids.
