Translation

"O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden, and enjoy (its good things) as ye wish: but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression."

Tafsir

And, He said, 'O Adam, dwell, you (anta: this is reiterated in order to emphasise the subject of the verb uskun, 'dwell', and to supplement to it [what follows]) and your wife, Eve (read Hawwaa'), in the Garden, and eat from whence you will, but do not come near this tree, to eat of it - and this was wheat - lest you become evildoers'.
