How many direct children did Adam and Eve have?
As Salaamu Alaikum,
Regarding this, Hafiz Ibn Katheer has stated that ‘Imam Abu Jafar bin Jarir has mentioned in his book of history, ‘Eve gave birth to forty children in twenty pregnancies.
In another version it is suggested that she had one hundred and twenty pregnancies, and in every birth there was one boy and one girl’. (Al Bidayah wan Nihayah- by Hafiz Ibn Katheer vol. 1 pg. 107 print Darul Ma’rifah Beirut 2007).
And Allah knows best,
Mufti Waseem Khan.
