How is man created?

Q: How is man created? Is man created in three components which are spirit, soul and body?

A: There is a soul for every body. The soul is called rooh. Every person has a body with a rooh (soul) infused. Just as there is a heart for every body there is a soul. The rooh is part of the body. It is not different from the body, just as the heart or any other organ are part of the same body.

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

ويسألونك عن الروح قل الروح من أمر ربي وما أوتيتم من العلم إلا قليلا (سورة الإسراء: 85)
