The first question we have is: how do Muslims know about Adam, or where do they get the story from?

Dr. Shabir Ally: 

Well, basically we get this information from the Quran, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from the Almighty God.

It’s similar to the Bible in many respects and it gives us many of the biblical stories. But often in a very truncated or elusive form.

It just refers to the story on the assumption that people already knew these stories and brings out new moral teachings from them. 

I hope this helps answer your question. Please keep in touch.

Walaikum Asalam.
