... the devil appeared to her
again (or, as others say, to Adam), and pretended that he by his prayers
would obtain of God that she might be safely delivered of a son in
Adam's likeness, provided they would promise to name him Abd'alhareth,

angels,) instead of Abd'allah, or the servant of God, as Adam had
designed... (The Koran, Sale, 1888)
