Prophet Adam AS is the first prophet revealed by Allah SWT on earth. During his stay on earth, he found and planted his own ingredients to make his food. So, what was Prophet Adam’s food at that time?
Quoting from the detikcom page, the story of the descent of the Prophet Adam and Eve to earth is also included in the word of Allah SWT through Surah Al-Baqarah verse 36,
So Satan caused them to slip from it and brought them out of the state they were in. And We said, “Go down, some of you enemies of one another. And for you on earth there will be a dwelling place and For a while

“Then, Satan slipped both of them from him so that both of them were excluded from all the pleasures when they were there (heaven). We said, ‘Go down! Some of you are enemies to others and for you there is a place to live and enjoyment on earth until the appointed time.”
In Qashash Al-Anbiyaa by Imam Ibnu Katsir, after Allah SWT sent Nab Adam to earth, Gabriel brought seven grains of wheat and asked him to plant them. That plant will be his staple food during his stay on earth.
“This is food that comes from the forbidden tree that you were forbidden to eat, but you still eat it,” said Angel Gabriel.
Then, Prophet Adam planted the seeds in the earth. It is said that every seed planted grows and increases until it becomes 100 thousand seeds. After that, the seeds grew big and Prophet Adam harvested them.
Getting to Know Wheat Seeds, the First Plant Developed by the Prophet Adam
Technically, wheat is often referred to as a cereal grain. Its botanical name is Triticum aestivum, it comes from the Latin root meaning to grind, referring to the initial process of turning the fruit of this grass plant into usable flour.
Quoting from the spruce page, wheat is one of the most important food crops known to mankind. This is because wheat grains can be processed into flour which can be stored for a long time and used to make bread.
Wheat Plant Care
Wheat thrives in full sun, and requires at least six hours of direct sunlight per day to produce a fertile wheat crop.
Well-draining loamy soil is best for wheat, poor drainage can cause problems due to excess moisture. If the soil is too rich in nitrogen content from manure or other additives, wheat growth may be stunted.
Therefore, the use of fertilizer after planting is not recommended. If the plant has a high nitrogen content, companion planting can help your wheat crop. Choose plants that consume a lot of nitrogen such as spinach, cauliflower, or pumpkin.
Wheat does not require much water and most farmers who grow it in large quantities rely on rainfall for their water needs. This can be a challenge in the dry season.
Home growers may choose to water during the dry season as needed, this is best done early in the morning or at sunset.
4. Temperature and Humidity
Temperature is a consideration in growing wheat. Heavy rain or high humidity over a long period of time can affect wheat growth.
If summers tend to have long periods of humid weather, you can try planting wheat at higher elevations or in locations that are exposed to more wind, which tends to help the plants stay dry.
Fertilizer is not necessary for wheat during its growth cycle and can even inhibit plant growth. However, enriching the soil before planting is a good idea.
If the soil is thin or deficient in nutrients, adding phosphorus is very beneficial for wheat. For amounts to use, follow product label instructions.
Well, that was the first plant developed by Prophet Adam AS during his stay on earth. Hopefully it’s useful, yes, Mother.
