Can someone please clarify whether 'adna is a noun or adjective. I'm pretty sure no one is going to disagree that "nearer" in english is an adjective.

it is a superlative degree of the femimine form like kubra, husna,sugra,

interestingly the same root give rise to the word duniya which means world i.e the life near to us it also means low but inspite of this we love it so much
