My son is saying that Allah Ta’alah breathed his spirit into Adam (as) and in view of the ayah 38.71- 72 my sons understanding and argument with me is that the spirit of Allah resides within the soul of each man. And he is saying that you have to understand that the spirit of Allah Ta’alah is within the soul of man and can be brought forth by means of correcting and obliterating the nafs.

He says that a part of Allahs spirit is within the soul of the children of Adam (as)?

Here ‘spirit’ means ‘life’. When the body has soul, it has life. No soul means no life. When the soul is removed then we say that the person has died.
‘Nafs’ is not soul. ‘Nafs’ is inside the soul and body. It requires reformation for spiritual elevation.
