 According to Umar al-Khattab :
“Allah’s Messenger said: ‘When Adam committed
sin, he said: O Lord, I seek repentance in the name of
Muhammad , Allah 9 said: ‘O Adam , How did you
recognize Muhammad , I have not created him yet? He said: O
Lord, when you created me by your hands (mighty power), and
have put your sprit into it, I raised my head and on every pillar of
the throne (al-Arsh) I saw it was written: There is no God but
Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. I thought that no
name is worthy of being beside yours except that of the most
beloved to you among the creation. Allah 9 said: ‘Truly, O
Adam, he is the most beloved to me in the creation, you
intermediated his name, so I have forgiven you. If I would have
not created Muhammad, I would not have created you.’”
Reported by al-Hakim, al-Bayhaqi and Ibn al-Asakir. al￾Hakim said; ‘This is a tradition with an aurhentic chain of transmission.’

According to Umar al-Khattab :
“Allah’s Messenger said: ‘When Adam committed
sin, he raised his head towards the sky and said: O Lord, I seek
repentance in the name of Muhammad , Allah 9 send a
message to him: ‘What is Muhammad and Who is Muhammad?’
He (Adam ) said: ‘O Lord, Glory to Your name! When you
created me, I raised my head up towards the throne (al-Arsh), So I
saw it written: There is no God but Allah, Muhammad is the
Messenger of Allah. I thought that this might be someone with
high rank, that’s the reason his name is beside Your. Allah 9 send
message to him: ‘O Adam , Indeed, he is the last Prophet in
your offspring, his nation (umma) will be the best nation among
your offspring. If I would have not created him, I would not have
created you, O Adam.’”
Reported by al-Hakim, al-Tabaraani.
