"...the teaching in the Quran that Allah taught the Prophet Adam all the "names", beyond the knowledge of the Angels, or that He ordered the Angels to prostrate before him. Both these teachings that the father of both men and women was a recipient and possessor of spiritual knowledge that exceeds the angelic level and that man in a certain sense is the Qiblah of the Angels, provides sufficient scriptural evidence of not only his superiority over angels but also points to the profound spiritual reality and origin of the human being."
"The Prophet (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was once asked, 'Who is more sacred in the sight of Allah, the kaabah or the believer?', to which the Prophet answered, 'The believer is more sacred.'"
- Shaykh Ahmad Hendricks
in Preface to the 'Honor and Status of the Human Being'
