It is mentioned in minahu dhi al-jalaali ishlaah ‘ilm al-haal by Allama Ahmad bin Abd al-Ghani Abideen:
He is the most ashraf from amongst the servants of Allah the Most High in obedience (inqiyad) and action regarding with his commandments and avoiding that which is forbidden. He is the highest in rank and class amongst them. He peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was a human being (insaan) who married with women and had children from them, males and females.
Ibn Abd al-Ghani Abideen states in the sharh:
We belief firmly [yaqeenan] (that he, peace and blessings be upon him was a human being) from the propgeny of Adam and Hawwa.
