Allah created Adam and Eve to dwell on the Earth along with their descendants, the human race, and were given dominion over the Earth and all that it contains.
He it is Who created for you all that is in the earth. (I, 29)
But a condition was laid upon them to exercise their authority in accordance with Allah’s laws. If people adhere to the laws, peace and harmony will exist on Earth and Allah will reward the law abiding ones with Paradise in the Hereafter.
