Khutbah Ilhamia is a total cover-up job by Ahmadiyya sources. Its first edition seems to have been published on August 25, 1901, the second edition October 17, 1902, it appears during the
intervening period, four more chapters and some flyers were added during the period of May 1900 to October 1902, and then it appeared in the final shape in October 1902 (see hidden Treasures, pages 269-273). The Lahori-Ahmadi’s published an abridged version of an english translation in 2003. Watch Ak Shaikh and Akber C’s video analysis here.
It was Eid of April 11th, 1900, Noorudin led the Eid service and gave the speech, MGA then got up from a sitting position and spoke for about 20 minutes. MGA delivered an untelligible rant, this was converted into “Khutbah Ilhamia”, and published later by Ahmadiyya sources. Nevertheless, we have some references and source material in the below. MGA was known to claim these crazy things, in 1890, he claimed that Qadian was also mentioned in the Quran. Later on in 1907, in Haqiqatul Wahy, on pages 457-458, MGA mentions the Khutbah Ilhamiya. However, in this book it is mentioned that Khutbah Ilhamiya happened in 1900, not 1901, whereas all Ahmadi sources have always written 1901 (see Dard, page 722).
MGA claimed that Muhammad (Saw) visited Qadian
In a footnote, MGA quotes the quran (17:1), this is wherein Allah tells us how he carried Muhammad (Saw) on the night journey from Masjid Haram (In Mecca) to Masjid Aqsa (In jerusalem). In fact, in the 5-volume commentary of the Quran by Ahmadi’s, they have also written there that ‘Masjid Aqsa”, may also refer to MGA’s Masjid Aqsa in Qadian (see page 1404), which was built by MGA’s father in 1876, just before he died.

Some additional quotes
“I am “khatamul auliya”. No “wali” will come after me.” (Khotbah Ilhamia, p.35)
Our Prophet, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, was the Aadam of the end [that is, the Aadam of the last era or period] of the world and the apex of the days of the period [that is, the apex of his own era]. And His Holiness was made to be born in the manner of Aadam. After all kinds of insects and animals and beasts had been born on the earth. … That is, every host [or group] of debauched people and ‘kaafirs’ [disbelievers] and materialistic people was created and, in heaven, [God] brought into existence stars and moons and suns, that is, made manifest the souls of the pure, which were prepared [ready for the Divine]. After this [He] clothed that Aadam in the dress of existence whose name is Muhammad and Ahmad, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him and he is the chief of the progeny of Aadam and the Imaam [leader] of the people and the most righteous and auspicious of all. (RK, v. 16, pp. 259-260, starts at 4th Urdu line from top of pg. 259 and ends at bottom of pg. 260)
… Hence, there is no doubt that His Holiness [Muhammad], the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, is the Aadam of the last era and the ‘ummat’ [nation or followers] of this praised Prophet is in lieu of [his] progeny. … And the era of spirituality of our Prophet started at the fifth millennium and was perfected at the end of sixth millennium and [the following] statement from God Almighty indicates this: ‘li yuzhirahu `aladdeen’ [that He may cause it to prevail over all religion] [a portion of the verse Quraan 61:10]. And the detail of this position is that our Prophet, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, came on the footstep [i.e., in the pattern] of Aadam. And Aadam’s spirituality emerged on the fifth day [although he was not yet born] because by that day whatever was of the elements of his substance and the reality of his essence had been created. Because the earth with all its creation and the sky [or heaven] with all its artifacts is the reality of Aadam’s essence. [RK, v. 16, pp. 261-263]
This secret [or mystery] should, in other words, be understood as [follows]: Man at one [point in] time was mineral and at the next time, plants [or sugar] and after this animals and after that [he] was [the] star[s] and the moon and the sun until, on the fifth day, all that which his nature [i.e., the nature of Man] had required from the earthly and heavenly powers [or forces] was collected by the Grace of God, the Best of Creators. Hence, all creation was a perfect individual for Aadam or [it] was a mirror of his existence which was made honored and venerable. Then [He] willed that the hiddenness be made to appear completely in one person who is a manifestation of these characteristics [or essences]. Hence, Aadam’s spirituality, with a comprehensive, complete radiance, radiated forth on the day of Friday in the last hour, that is, on that day which is the sixth day. Similarly, the spirituality of our Prophet, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, appeared with abridged characteristics [‘ijmaalee sifaat’] in the fifth millennium and that era was not the apex of the developments of that spirituality but rather was the first step for the acme of its excellencies. Then that spirituality radiated in a complete manner at the end of the sixth millennium that is, at this time [i.e., now], just as Aadam was born at the end of the sixth day by the command of God, the Best of Creators, and the spirituality of the ‘Khayr-ur-Rusul’ [the Best of the Messengers, i.e., Muhammad], for the culmination of its appearance and for the prevalence of its radiance, adopted a manifestation, as God Almighty had promised in the Clear Book [the Quraan], so I am that manifestation. [RK, v. 16, pp. 264-267]
