Hazrat Hawa (alaihas salaam) being created from the rib of Hazrat Aadam (alaihis salaam)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Are women created from a rib or was Hawa (alaihas salaam) only created from Aadam (alaihis salaam)’s rib? 


A: Since the whole process of women commences from the rib of Aadam (alaihis salaam) therefore a woman is attributed to that first rib.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
