Intro
As we all know, MGA took all of his “progressive-islam” ideas directly from Sir Syed, since himself, Noorudin and Abdul Karim were all influenced heavily by Sir Syed.  In fact, they began denying the miracles as performed by Esa (as) and confirmed in the Quran by 1884 (see BA. vol. 4). Nonetheless, below is the reference on this topic.

The Quote
MGA denies that humans came from monkeys.  He claims that only humans can create humans and so on and so forth.  However, what about the mule?  What if monkeys were a form of Jinn??  MGA doesnt seem to be capable of explaining this, since he was stuck in 20th century science and also denied the human ability to leave the Earth, i.e. his rejection of a physcial ascension of Esa (as), MUhammad (Saw) and Idris (as).

Bandar sa insaan ya insaan sa bandar kabhi kisi na paida hota nahi daikha ho ga. ya to aik noveloon ka qisa ha. hamaisha nooh sa nooh he paida hoti ha. Khuda na apna qanoon hamari aankho k samnay rakha hua ha k gadhay sa gadha or gorhi sa gorha, bandar sa bandar paida hota ha. ab es k khilaf jo koi daway karta ha k bandar sa insaan b paida hota ha us ko apnay daway ki dileel b paish karni chahiya. ya kah daina k shaid aisa ho giya ho, shaid k kiya manay? hamaray sath to Allah ta’ala na aik mashahida dileel k toor sa rakha hua ha, es k khilaf kahnay waloon ko koi baiyan dileel paish karni chahiya warna zinni batoon or sirf dawoon sa koi amar hujjat nahi ho sakta.””   (((Al-hukm 30 may 1908 page 5)))
