Allah put his soul into Adam

Question: Quran says that Allah gave his rooh [spirit] to Adam. So does this mean that Adam got some portion from body of Almighty God?
Answer: The ayah under discussion is:
“Then He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him his soul. Quran: al-Sajdah 32:9
ثُمَّ سَوَّاهُ وَنَفَخَ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِهِ

A similar ayah is in Quran 15:29 that talks about rooh of Allah.

Not only Quran talks about "spirit of Allah" but also about:
1. the “House of Allaah”: “and sanctify My House for those who circumambulate it”. Quran: al-Hajj 22:26
طَهِّرْ بَيْتِيَ

2. the “she-camel of Allaah”: “This she‑camel of Allaah is a sign unto you”. Quran: al-A’raaf 7:73
نَاقَةُ اللَّهِ لَكُمْ آيَةً

Obviously - these "she-camel of Allah" or "house of Allah" do not refer to something from the body of God but - something that belongs to Allah because it was created by Allah. Similarly "Rooh" or what is popularly called as "the spirit" is creation of Allah and Allah gave the "connection" of rooh to Adam. In fact every living human being possess this "connection to life" or "Rooh".
