(ii) The description may correspond to the known existence of two legged species identified as (homo-erectus) nearly two million years ago.
(iii) Homo erectus (meaning ‘upright man’) is an extinct species of archaic human from the Pleistocene, with its earliest occurrence about 2 million years ago, and its specimens are among the first recognisable members of the genus Homo. H. erectus was the first human ancestor to spread throughout the Old World, having a distribution in Eurasia extending from the Iberian Peninsula to Java. African populations of H. erectus are likely to be the direct ancestors to several human species.
(iv) The (homo-erectus), though physically similar to the (homosapiens), did not carry the gift of intellect; thereby being closer to animals in characteristics.
(v) (Homo-Sapiens) the known intellect bearing ancestors of the existing mankind appeared on the scene commencing 20,000 to 60,000 BC.
(vi) Prior to the advent of Adam, life on earth for the living being had no meaning except to struggle for survival. It appears that the arrival of Adam on earth coincided with the indication of (Homo Sapiens).
(vii) When Allah declared His intent to appoint a vicegerent on earth, represented by Adam: angels stated that Your appointee on earth will make mischief and shed blood (Baqarah-2: 30). How did the angels know this in advance? It is obvious that angels were comparing Adam with the species on earth at that time involved in their indicated violent activities. The real potential of Adam was unknown to them and their observation was based on conjecture.
(viii) Besides, the descending of the spirit of Adam simultaneously or periodically into the physical existence of pre-(homo-sapiens) known as (homo-eerectus) or else can not be ruled out.
(ix) Adam gave new significance to life on earth. The man was given the knowledge to learn how to choose between good and evil.
(x) The term ‘Adam’ in the Quran, refers to the first man who came out of a state of ease and comfort to make effort and reach ultimate excellence. In this journey, within the sphere of time and space, he, as the most well-equipped creature among all the created beings, has, at his disposal, divine guidance to fight and overcome obstacles and evil satanic forces.
(xi) According to the traditions of Muhammad and Ali, there were several Adams. It may also be indicative of several worlds like earth.

(i) All Muslim traditionalists and historians agree that verses (Dahr-76: 07-14) were revealed in the praise of Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Hussain when in fulfilment of a vow they gave whatever food they had in the house to a destitute, an orphan, and a (freed) captive on three consecutive days while breaking their fasts with water only as no additional food was available in the house.
(ii) Philosopher/Poet Iqbal described Ali as ‘Tajdar-e-Hal Ata’ (he who has been crowned with surah Adh Dahr).
(iii) According to the followers of the Ahlul Bayt, when it is accepted that Ali has been crowned with surah Adh Dahr, it follows that at no time the world was, is and will be without ( visible or invisible) Ali ibn Abu Talib.
