Civilization is the emergence of a process of purposeful and systematic progress in one or more societies based on a clear way of thinking that takes a meaningful and disciplined form and brings the society to the desired destination. Therefore, civilization has a fundamental and deep relationship with religion, and the sending of divine prophets and their guidance shows this relationship. Examining the goals of the Prophets in the Holy Quran and their practical life shows the foundation of monotheistic civilization in order to generalize religious knowledge and human progress in material and spiritual spheres. This research is based on the assumption that in the story of Adam, peace be upon him, as the father of mankind, the capacities and frameworks of the first civilization are hidden, and paying attention to it will lead today’s confused man to the reconstruction of religious civilization. These capacities can be considered in two parts: internal and external capacities for the benefit of divine leaders and the religious community. The present article has extracted the civilization-building capacities in the Qur’anic biography and story of Adam, peace be upon him, with the analytical-descriptive method and using library resources, in order to present it as a model for today’s efforts in this field. The results show that the inner capacities of Prophet Adam, peace be upon him, include the benefit of divine knowledge and divine caliphate, knowledge of enemies, the ability to endure hardships, and repentance. This part is in connection with the external level of the story of Prophet Adam, peace be upon him, which includes the regulation of clothing, management of structures and religious rituals with the title of “son of Adam.
