Found this excellent talk by Prof. William Chittick on the sufi understanding of Adam’s fall. I first came across this in an article called Ahmad Samani on the Myth of Adam’s Fall by Dr Chittick published a number of years ago in Sufi. It’s an illuminating talk which introduces the brilliant work of Shaykh Ahmad Samani (ra) on the Divine Names. One can only hope that Dr Chittick finds time from his other projects to translate more of Shaykh  Samani’s work. You can listen to it by going here. Thanks to Islam from Inside for making it available.
