Allah honored Adam by commanding the angels to prostrate before him, so they all complied except for Iblis. Allah then allowed Adam to live and eat wherever and whatever he wished in Paradise. Al-Hafiz Abu Bakr bin Marduwyah reported Abu Dharr saying, "I said, `O Messenger of Allah! Was Adam a Prophet' He said,
«نَعَمْ نَبِيًّا رَسُولًا كَلَّمَهُ اللَّهُ قُبُلًا»
(Yes. He was a Prophet and a Messenger to whom Allah spoke directly), meaning
﴿اسْكُنْ أَنتَ وَزَوْجُكَ الْجَنَّةَ﴾
((O Adam!) Dwell you and your wife in the Paradise.)''
