Many people throughout time have raised questions regarding the existence of humans before Prophet Adam (A.S.) Sayed Mohammed Baqer Al-Qazwini addresses this interesting topic after exploring the special status given to humans and the responsibilities that accompany it as mentioned in the Holy Quran. Furthermore, he examines whether the theory of evolution and modern science contradicts the Quranic views on this subject, before concluding with a clarification on what happened after Adam and Eve were created, and how did their progeny initially increase.

“And, indeed, We have honored the children of Adam, and We carried them on the land and the sea; and We provided them with sustenance of the good things; and We preferred them greatly over many of those We created.” - Surat Al-Isra’ – Verse 70
