This is another topic that MGA stole directly from Sir Syed, via Noorudin. Sir Syed denied all miracles in Islam in the mid-to-late 1870’s. Nooruddin was a good friend of Sir Syed in those days, eventually, he tempted MGA to make all of his ridiculous claims, with Sir Syed being the model. In 1891, MGA denied all miracles (in terms of ascending and descending to heaven, with the help of Allah) and many others and he specifically denied the physicality of the Miraaj (and quoted Ibn Ishaq and Aisha’s testimony, see page 183), this was only done since MGA was denying these types of miracles across the board (see Elucidation of Objectives). In the ROR of July-1943 (See page 191), MGA states that Sir Syed Ahmad Khan called the miraj a vision, however, MGA was calling it a spiritual vision (Kashf). MGA and his team of writers also connected 17:93 (17:94 in the Qadiani-Ahmadi Quran) with the Miraaj and erroneously claim that the Miraaj couldn’t have happened since in this verse Muhammad (saw) denies being able to do it, however, this is a lie, the verse and verses don’t say that at all, they only say that Muhammad (saw) can’t do it without the help of Allah. That wasn’t the only ludicrous demand of the Meccan’s, they even asked for Allah to come down to Earth and the angels (see 17:85–99). Check out Ibn Kathir who claims that it wasn’t a dream or vision. This is also covered in Bukhari, see here also.
Nevertheless, in the below, we have posted 2 references from Izala Auham which seem to contradict each other. We have also quoted MGA in Humamtal-Bushra (1893, initially arabic only), wherein MGA and his team wrote: there is no doubt (koi shak or shuba nahi) RasulAllah (saw) was taken up to the sky with his body. Further he writes that however His (saw) body did not disappear from the bed as witnessed by some of the wives of the Prophet (saw) and a few companions (ra). We have also added a story from Malfuzat wherein MGA curses at those people who believe that Muhammad’s (Saw) miraaj was physical. This comes from the 5th volume of Malfuzat, which was published from Rabwah, on October 1963, in Urdu, 464 pages, covering the period from January 17 to May 30, 1903.

“If someone object that if ascent in human body is impossible, then how come Holy Prophet had a physical ascent in the night of Miraj? The answer to this is that Miraj was NOT with Human body (Please NOTE that this contradicts to belief of Sehaba RA) but it was actually a very high level of vision/kashaf, which can be called just like awake. And with such an intuitional dream a man can travel to skies with a spiritual Body”
In Izala Auham Vol 1 ,RK Vol 3 Page 247
“All Sehabas ( RA) believed that His ascent in the night of miraj was in his human body”
1893, Hamamatul-Bushra, (The Harbinger of Good News)(Arabic only book)
In Hamamtal-Bushra (1893, initially arabic only), MGA and his team wrote: there is no doubt (koi shak or shuba nahi) RasulAllah (saw) was taken up to the sky with his body. Further he writes that however His (saw) body did not disappear from the bed as witnessed by some of the wives of the Prophet (saw) and a few companions (ra).

In this sitting, an ahmadi told MGA that Muslims present the case of Miraaj, as they argue with us on the physicality of the RAFFA of Esa (as) and the physicality of his return. In this, MGA claims that people who believe in this as a physical concept, they are very nasty people, MGA claims that any body that needs to shit and piss could never go to heaven (at the 6:48 mark). We have posted the scan in the below.
The exact quote
….”The Miraaj that took place with the entity (vujud) that peed and shit, it was a pleasant and luminous entity.”””
“”……Miraaj jis vujud say huva tha, vo yeh HAGNE, MOOTNE, valaa vujud to na tha, balke vo ek latif aur nihayat hi noorani vujud tha.”””
MGA quoted Aisha (ra) as recorded in Ibn Hisham and Ibn Ishaq (see page 183)on the Miraaj
MGA and his team of writers never quote from Ibn Hisham or Ibn Ishaq, however, in this case they did. The quote is posted in the below:
“The Prophet’s body did not leave the ground; he made a spiritual journey;” Muawiye’s saying, “The night journey was a true dream from Allah;”

Sahih al-Bukhari 3430 – Prophets – كتاب أحاديث الأنبياء – Sunnah.com – Sayings and Teachings of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم)
Narrated Malik bin Sasaa:
That the Prophet (ﷺ) talked to them about the night of his Ascension to the Heavens. He said, “(Then Gabriel took me) and ascended up till he reached the second heaven where he asked for the gate to be opened, but it was asked, ‘Who is it?’ Gabriel replied, ‘I am Gabriel.’ It was asked, ‘Who is accompanying you?’ He replied, ‘Muhammad.’ It was asked, ‘Has he been called?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ When we reached over the second heaven, I saw Yahya (i.e. John) and Jesus who were cousins. Gabriel said, ‘These are John (Yahya) and Jesus, so greet them.’ I greeted them and they returned the greeting saying, ‘Welcome, O Pious Brother and Pious Prophet!;’ ”
