How did the Malaaikah know that the children of Aadam (Alayhis Salaam) will cause mischief on the earth?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is that as per reference of Surah Bakra when Allah Ta’ala created Hazrat Adam (Alayhis Salaam) then the Angels said “this man will create fights on earth”(mafhoom). So how did they know that because before Hazrat Adam (Alayhis Salaam) they never saw any human being?


A: It is obvious that the malaaikah were given some knowledge about the progeny of Aadam (alaihis salaam).

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
