QUESTION:

Bismillah rahman irraheem

Salaam

Qn:  This question is about the sinlessness of the Prophets(as).

It is believed that all the Prophets are ma'soom; and do not commit sins.
However, the story of Adam when he was banished to earth for not 
obeying the command of Allah(swt), does this mean he(as) committed a 
SIN?

Please comment on this.  Thank you


ANSWER:

Hazrat Adam did not commit any sin.  What he did was TARKE AWLA, which
means "abandoning that which was better".  A detailed discussion  on the
sinlessness of all the Prophets exists in several English books, and this
has been amply explained.
