Hazrat Aadam (Alayhis Salaam)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have some questions about Hazrat Aadam (Alayhis Salaam), hawaa (Alayhas Salaam) and Iblees.

1. Iblees was a jinn or an angle?

2. What came first, the creation of Aadam (Alayhis Salaam) then hawaa (Alayhas Salaam) or hawaa (Alayhas Salaam) and then Aadam (Alayhis Salaam)?



1. He is a jinn.

2. Hazrat Aadam (Alayhis Salaam) was created first and from his left rib Allah Ta’ala created HAzrat Hawwa (Alaihas Salaam).

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