My friend came to the U.S from Cuba after being petitioned by her naturalized U.S Citizen father. My friend was 17 years old at the time and she immediately obtained a U.S passport through her u.S.C father. She is now 22 and wants to petition her mother in Cuba. She doesn't have a Certificate of Naturalization, can she still file the I-130 proving citizenship by only using her U.S Passport?
The US passport is as sufficient as a certificate of naturalization to prove US citizenship. In fact since your friend became a US Citizen by operation of law, and not by naturalization, she would not be able to receive the certificate anyway. Using her passport is the way to prove her citizenship.
