    Was Prophet Adam AS aware of Prophet Muhammad’s SAW existence?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    There is a report by Imam Hakim (may Allah have mercy on him) which suggest that the Prophet Adam (peace and blessings upon him) had knowledge about the future creation of Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him).

    Imam Ibn Jarir (may Allah have mercy on him) also indicates that Allah had taught the Prophet Adam (peace and blessings upon him) the names and virtues of all the Prophets to come.

    Imam Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him) writes, “"Allah never sent a Prophet but after taking his pledge that if Muhammad were sent in his lifetime, he would believe in and support him.'' Allah commanded each Prophet to take a pledge from his nation that if Muhammad were sent in their time, they would believe in and support him.”

    And Allah knows best.
