How was Eve created? Was she really created from the rib of Adam?
The claim that Eve was created from the rib of Adam is a Biblical claim.
According to the Holy Qur’an, Eve was not created from the rib of Adam. Allah (swt) clearly mentions in the Qur’an that Adam and Eve were both created from ‘one soul’, and not that Eve was created from Adam’s rib. This ‘one soul’ refers to the general ‘human soul’ from which both Adam and Eve (male and female) were created. This expression is repeated three times in the Qur’an. Unfortunately, it is mistranslated by some scholars as Eve having been created from Adam, but this is a mistranslation influenced by the Biblical version and some Israelite narrations. The correct translation is below:
“O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it created its mate” (4:1)
As for the issue of how the children of Adam and Eve would have reproduced, the most likely answer is the sons of Adam married the daughters of Adam. Even though incest is impermissible and has always been so, the definition of incest is marriage between relatives. However, since Adam’s children were the only people alive at the time, they were not relatives in the sense that they were not closer to each other in comparison to other people on Earth, because there was no one else on Earth. Therefore, the definition of incest cannot apply to that situation.

Can you give me one verse in the Qu'ran where it says the Injil has been corrupted?
Sallam Alykum, as far as I know the Holy Qur’an does not say that the Injeel has been corrupted (and it is hard to believe it was because it was the Word of Allah swt). But for sure the Bible Christians use nowadays is mostly written by men after Prophet Jesus (as) ascended to heaven. Christians themselves say that it was written hundreds of years after Jesus (as). The Injeel must have been lost or replaced by the priests of the time? Or they could have written a book that is similar to the Injeel to deceive people?
Sorry you asked for only one verse but I got carried away and supplied a few more lol. Though I know very little on this topic (and all topics really) so I hope this is satisfactory:
“Have ye any hope that they will be true to you when a party of them used to listen to the word of Allah, then used to change it, after they had understood it, knowingly?” [Holy Qur’an 2:75 | Pickthall Translation]
“Woe, then, to those who write the book with their hands and then say: This is from Allah, so that they may take for it a small price; therefore woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.” [Holy Qur’an 2:79 | Shakir Translation]
“Those unto whom We gave the Scripture recognise (this revelation) as they recognise their sons. But lo! a party of them knowingly conceal the truth.” [Holy Qur’an 2:146 | Pickthall Translation]
“O followers of the Book! Why do you confound the truth with the falsehood and hide the truth while you know?“ [Holy Qur’an 3:71 | Shakir Translation]
“Most surely there is a party amongst those who distort the Book with their tongue that you may consider it to be (a part) of the Book, and they say, It is from Allah, while it is not from Allah, and they tell a lie against Allah whilst they know.” [Holy Qur’an 3:78 | Shakir Translation]
“And as Allah took Compact with the ones to whom the Book was brought: “Indeed you shall definitely make it evident to mankind and not keep it back.” Yet, they flung it off beyond their backs and traded it for a little price. Miserable then is that which they traded!“ [Holy Qur’an 3:187 | Dr. Ghali Translation]
“Some of those who are Jews change words from their context and say: “We hear and disobey; hear thou as one who heareth not” and “Listen to us!” distorting with their tongues and slandering religion. If they had said: “We hear and we obey: hear thou, and look at us” it had been better for them, and more upright. But Allah hath cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not, save a few.” [Holy Qur’an 4:46 | Pickthall Translation]
How prayer was described in the Injil
Musa removed his footwear before prayer
Musa was commanded to remove his footwear when standing on Holy ground. Like the way Muslims remove their shoes before entering the Mesjid.
“Draw not nigh hither; put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.”
Musa and Haroon purified before prayer
Musa and Haroon were commanded to purify themselves before praying. Similarly, Muslims must perform wudu.
“And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet threat; when they went into the tent of the congregation they washed as the Lord commanded Moses.”
Sulaiman raised his hands:
Like the way Muslims raise their hands in Dua, Sulaiman did the same.
…when Soloman had made an end of praying all his prayer and supplication unto the Lord, he arose from before the altar of the Lord, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to Heaven”
[1 Kings 8:54]
Daniel faced Jerusalem
Daniel faced Jerusalem in prayer. Similarly, Muslims face the Kaba.
“Now when Daniel…went into the house; and his window being open in the chamber towards Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.”
The prophets fell on their faces in prostration
Isa fell on his face
“And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed…” -
Joshua fell on his face
“And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship…” (Joshua 5:14)
Musa and Haroon fell on their faces
“And they (Moses and Aaron) fell upon their faces…”
Ibrahim fell on his face
“And Abraham fell on his face…” -
