When God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden did He pronounce that there would be enmity between the man and the woman?

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

Genesis 3:13-15 – 13. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. 15. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Al-A’raf 7:23-25 – 23. They said, “Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If you forgive us not and have not mercy on us, we are of the lost!” 24. He said “God down (from hence), one of you a foe to the other. There will be for you on earth a habitation for awhile.” 25. He (Allah) said: “There you shall live, and there you shall die, and thence shall you be brought forth.”

Taha 20:123 – He said: “Go down, both of you, from the Garden, with enmity one to another.

Note: In the Bible the enmity which God pronounced was not between Adam and Eve but between Satan and mankind.
