Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abbaad was asked:


“How can Adam be a Prophet when there was no books before him?”


“It is well-known that it was revealed to him with what to worship Allah, Exalted with and likewise his sons. So he was a Messenger to his children. They did not know what to worship Allah with except through his path” End translation. [Sharh Arba’een an-Nawawiyyah no. 4]
