Creation of Sayyiduna Aadam

Sayyiduna Aadam  had neither mother nor father; Allah created him from soil. It has been reported that when Allah intended to create him, He  ordered Sayyiduna ‘lzra ‘eel to bring a handful of soil from the earth. When Sayyiduna ‘Izra ‘eel  descended from the sky onto the earth in order to fulfil the commandment of Allah  and picked up handful of soil, the superficial layer of all the earth peeled off into his fist like a rind.
It was consisted of sixty different colours and properties i.e. it was containing black, white, red and yellow coloured soils possessing various varieties e.g. soft and hard, sweet and bitter, salty and tasteless etc. ([azkira-tul-Ambiya, pp. 48)
Then it was ordered to knead this soil with different waters. With the passage of time, it became sticky. Then it was kneaded again for a long period of time and it wore a form of a smelling mortar like mud. Then when it dried out, it turned into a sounding soil. Then the statue of Aadam   was made out of this soil and was placed on the portal of Paradise, looking at  which the angels would surprise because they had never seen a creation having such appearance ever before. Then Allah   commanded the soul to enter that statue. Therefore, when the soul entered his body and reached his blessed nostrils, he   sneezed and when the soul reached up to his blessed tongue, he  invokedالحمد للہ . Allah   .o said یرحمک اللہ meaning: May Allah  bless you! 0 Father of Muhammad (Aadam), I have made you solely for the purpose of my glorification. Gradually, the soul permeated in his whole body and he stood up alive. ([afseer Khaazin, vol. 1, pp. 43; part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 30)
It is mentioned in the Hadees of Tirmizi and Abu Dawood that the soil from which the statue of Sayyiduna Aadam  was made was a combination of different colours and various types. Therefore, the progeny of Sayyiduna Aadam   bears different colours and different habits.
([afseer As-Saaw( vol. 1, pp. 49; part t Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 30)
The Kunyah of Sayyiduna Aadam  is Abu Muhammad or Abul Bashar and his title is ‘Khalifatullah’. He  is the first Nabi of Allah . He lived for nine hundred and sixty  years. At the time of his demise, the number of his progeny had reached to one hundred thousand that populated the earth and promoted different professions and erecting various buildings.
([afseer As-Saawi, vol. 1, pp. 48; part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 30)
This fact has been mentioned repeatedly in the Holy Quran that Sayyiduna Aadam  was created from soil. Allah   has said in Surah Aal-e-‘Imran: 

The example of ‘Isa before Allah is like that of Aadam; He created him (Aadam) from clay and then said, ‘Be,’ and he immediately becomes.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 3, Surah Aal-e-‘Imran, Ayah 59)
In another Ayah, it has been mentioned:

Indeed, We have created them from sticky clay.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)J (Part 23, Surah As-Saffaat, Ayah 11)
In another section of the Holy Quran, it is mentioned:
Indeed We created man from (dry) sound-emitting clay, which was in reality black reeking mud. {Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation ofQuran)] (Part 14, Al-Hijr, Ayah 26)

Sayyidatuna Hawwa  

When Allah ordered Sayyiduna Aadam  to stay in the Paradise, he  started feeling a bit uneasy due to loneliness. Allah made sleep overcome Sayyiduna Aadam  and he  fell a deep sleep. Then while he  was sleeping, Allah created Sayyidatuna Hawwa  from the left rib of Sayyiduna Aadam  .
When Sayyiduna Aadam  woke up from his sleep, he was amazed and astonished to see a beautiful and pleasant woman sitting beside him. Sayyiduna Aadam  asked her, ‘Who are you and why have you come here?’ In response, Sayyidatuna Hawwa  replied, ‘I am your wife and Allah  has created me so that you acquire peace and satisfaction of heart through me and I attain peace and satisfaction of heart through you. We would live together happily and spend our lives with love and compassion, thanking Allah 􀀃j’i, for His blessings.’
(Tafseer Ruh-ul-Ma’ani, vol. 1, pp. 316; part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 35)
Allah has addressed about Sayyidatuna Hawwa in few sections of the Holy Quran – for example:

And from it, created its spouse and from them both, has spread many men and women. [Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 4, Surah An-Nisa, Ayah 1)
Moral: The parable of the creation of Sayyiduna Aadam and Hawwa  is among those wonders of the Holy Quran that carries several hidden pearls of guidance and admonitions. A few of them are described below:
Allah created Sayyiduna Aadam from soil and created Sayyidatuna Hawwa from the rib of Sayyiduna Aadam ­This saying of the Holy Quran reveals the fact that Allah created mankind in four different ways:
First From male and female copulation i.e. the conventional birth process of human beings. Therefore, it has been announced in the Holy Quran in clear words that:
Indeed We have created man from a drop of mixed sperm (i.e. discharge of man
and woman).
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 29, Surah Ad-Dahr, Ayah 2)
Second: The second way is creation of human being from just a man i.e. the birth of Sayyidatuna Hawwa . She was created from the left rib of Sayyiduna Aadam –
Third: The third way is that Allah  created a human being from just a woman i.e. the birth of Sayyiduna ‘Isa  who was born without father from the womb of Sayyidatuna Maryam  who was virgin and pious.
Fourth: Allah also created a human being without any man and woman i.e. Sayyiduna Aadam  . Allah created Sayyiduna Aadam  from soil.
Following lessons may be derived from above parables:
to create human beings by only one specific method. In fact, He  possesses such extreme powers that He can create human beings in any way He  intends to. Therefore, Allah  created human beings by all four aforesaid methods which is a manifestation of His great power. All these modes of creation are great signs of His grandeur and creativity.

 ! Words cannot express the Greatness
and Grandeur of Allah  Allah  ” the Creator of the cosmos, Who created and the skies and Lawh-o-Qalam (the Divine Tablet and the Holy Pen) by just commanding kun, (i.e. be it), so what can be the significance of the creation of the human beings as
the throne and the Heavens, the earth  compared to such gigantic creation of the
whole universe. But, the human beings are ” such an excellent creation of Allah .fo.-9′.c that it is
impossible to find its example in the entire universe. The human entity is a complete reflection of all the creations of the entire universe.  ! What an excellent saying of Sayyiduna  ali Translation: 0 human being! Why do you assume that you are just a small body? In fact, you are so majestic that the whole world is contained within you.
2. Some men could possibly assume that had the group of men not existed, then women would not be able to give birth to any human on their own and similarly, some women could possibly assume that had we women not existed, then men alone would not be able to bear any human. Likewise, it was also possible that men and women could have boasted upon the fact that had we men and women not existed, then it was impossible for any human being to be born.
Removing these misconceptions, Allah  created humans by all four methods and proved that: Look! I am such Potentate and Sovereign that I created (Sayyidatuna) Hawwa from just a man i.e. from the rib of (Sayyiduna) Aadam  . Therefore, 0 women! Do not assume that had there been no womanhood, then no human being would have been born. Similarly, Allah has warned men by creating Sayyiduna ‘Isa without father and from the womb of only a woman that 0 men! Do not boast upon the fact that had you not existed, then there would not be consequent creation of humanity. Have a look that I created (Sayyiduna) ‘Isa just from the womb of a woman without the use of man. And by creating (Sayyiduna) Aadam from soil and without any man and woman has simply made men and women to hold their tongues, and they have been warned that ‘Omen and women! Never let this thought prompt in your heart that had we both not existed, there would have not been any further human birth. Look that (Sayyiduna) Aadam neither has father, nor mother. Instead, I created him from soil.  , Allah  has said:
Allah is the Creator of all things, and He Alone is the Dominant on all. [Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 13, Surah Ar-Ra’ d, Ayah 16)
He may create anything at any time in any way. His actions and wills are neither dependent upon any means nor limited to specific procedures. He  is 

(He) always does whatever He wills.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)J (Part 30, Surah Al-Burooj, Ayah 16)

Meaning that He  does whatsoever He  determines to do. His greatness is evident from , whatever He   plans and intends for, He does it. Neither can anyone affect His Will nor can anyone dare to criticise His doings.
