Adam is mentioned in the Qur'an a total of 25 times, some passages of his life are well explained in the Qur'an, from the reasons of his creation "Verily, when your Lord told the Angels, 'I am putting a successor on earth'"2:30-38, his direct education given from God, "He taught Adam all the names" his encounter with the Angels "Then He showed (the names of things) to them (angels) and said, 'Tell me the names of these if you truly think you can. They said, 'May You be glorified! We have knowledge only of what You have taught us (...). Then He said, 'Adam, tell them the names of these.' God's advice against Satan: 'Oh Adam, verily this is an enemy to you and your wife' what caused Adam's fall from Paradise "Then they both ate from the tree".His repentance: "Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, and if you do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers" And the judgment of God:" Get you down, all, with enmity between yourselves, On earth will be a dwelling place for you and an enjoyment for a time". 20:115-123,
Adam's lifetime on earth can possibly be backtrack with the help of some medieval narration. Ibn Abbas stipulates 3 differents places where Adam, Hawa (Eve), Satan, and the snake could have possibly landed on earth.
(1) In Djanah, a place located between Mekka and At-Ta'if.
(2) At As-safa and Hawwa in Al-Marwah (popular mountains in Mekka due to Ismael and his mother's story).
(3) Adam landed somewhere in India and Hawa landed in Jeddah (City in Arabi Saoudi), and met in Muzdalifah (a place near Mekka).

The two first possibilities could not be proven as there is no existential sites or remains in those areas that could indicate the opposite. As for the last narration, we have attempted to localize a site in South Asia that could likely prove where Adam's first touched planet Earth. An interesting site is located in the South of Sri Lanka, ' The Peak of Adam / Sri Pada '. A holy mount with 2,249m of altitude, on top of the mount a Buddhist temple hide preciously a large footprint. Some believed to be the feet of Buddha, others of Hanuman (Hindu God), Christians refers it to the footprint of St Thomas, and Muslims believe to be the footprint of Adam, his first step was graved on a rock due to the impact of the first ever contact between Human and Earth. Adam would have presumably landed on top of Sri Pada, walk down looking for his wife Hawa, India and Sri Lanka were once a unique land, however, the legend of 'the Bridge of Adam / Rama Setu' a chain of limestone that connects South of India and North of Sri Lanka, would indicate that Adam would have use this natural bridge to join his wife Hawa who was in Jeddah. The name Jeddah refers to the Arabic etymology and means 'Grand-mother' paying homage to the first ever women habiting the area.
They both would have lived in the Arabic peninsula until the angel Azrael would finally take their soul. The legends of Adam's resting place is in Jabbal Abu Qubais/ Mount Abu Qubais, a place near Mekka. As for Hawa her tomb is often localised in Jeddah, but with the rise of the Wahhabi the shrine was destroyed and replaced by unmarked tombs. However, two tombs are found in Talalmanar, North Sri Lanka, which are referred to Adam and Eve's tomb, but no archaeology nor any excavation has found evidence of this claim.
