Seth was the third son of Adam and Eve and brother of Cain and Abel.
He was a righteous son and a gift bestowed upon Adam after the death of Abel.
Although Seth is not mentioned in the Quran, he was a prophet like his father, and continued teaching mankind the laws of God after the death of his father Adam. Some sources even cite Seth as the receiver of a scripture.
Islamic literature holds that Seth was born when Adam was past 100 years and that, by the time Adam died, Adam had already made Seth the heir to him in guiding his people.
Islam, like Judaism and Christianity, traces the genealogy of mankind back to Seth, since Abel did not leave any heirs and Cain's heirs, according to tradition, were destroyed by the Great Flood.
