MGA was totally against travel between Earth and heaven after his wild claims in 1890-1891. MGA denied the possibility of Allah’s powers to have physically raised Esa (As) to heaven, MGA also denied the physicality of the Miraj, the physicality of Idris’ (as) RAFFA to heaven and all physical travel between heaven and Earth (See Tafsir Ibn Kathir). Nevertheless, Adam (as) was created in heaven and so was his wife (see Chapter 2:38 of the Quran and 7:24 and 7:25). They were then ejected from heaven and physically sent to Earth. Thus disproving all of MGA’s assertions that humans can’t travel to and from heaven. It also proves that humans can live in heaven and NOT AGE at all. Since the concept of space-time doesn’t exist in heaven. We have found an interesting reference from Malfuzat V-5 (1963) which seems to assert that MGA said that Adam (as) was the first man. Finally, MGA wrote in 1907 that Adam (as) was born a twin. In the 1970’s, Malfuzat V-10 was published and therein a portion of MGA’s interview with Professor Wragge was printed, in this interview, ahmadiyya editors allege that MGA denied that Adam (As) was the first man. We have found another reference from Malfuzat V-5 (1963) which seems to assert that MGA said that Adam (as) was the first man. We have searched all throughout #ahmadiyya literature and found the first ever unequivocal statement which denies that Adam (As) was the first man in Muhammad Ali’s 1917 commentary on the Quran. Watch my video on this here.
The Islamic position on Adam?
Tafsir Ibn Kathir is an amazing classical book on Tafsir. Ibn Kathir tells us that Allah created a single soul, i.e. Adam (as) and then created Hawa aka Eva from the rib of Adam (as). _____________________________________________________________________________________________
Was Adam born a twin?
MGA claimed that he was the second coming of Adam (As) many times. He also claimed that Adam (As) was born as a twin, and thus, so was he (MGA) (see Haqiqatal Wahy, 1907 and many other books). It seems that MGA was quoting the verse of the Quran where it says that we were created in pairs (see Quran 51:49), however, this is not the creation story in Islam, it is referring to apples, oranges and how men and women have their one-person that they will untimately get along with (that doesn’t mean that they will meet) and etc. There are roughly 9 occurrences of the “pair”, “zawjayn” in Arabic, 78:8, 53:45, 51:49, 55:52, 43:12, 42:11, 36:36, 35:11 and 39:6.
Was Eve created from the rib of Adam (As)?
Further, the official Ahmadi-comprehensive english commentary on the Quran tells us that this verse means that mankind was born from 2 souls, man and woman, and thus its supports MGA’s view on this topic. He then goes on to argue that women werent really created from the rib of a man, and its only a metaphor.
Malfoozat, (Urdu edition only) Volume 1, Page 387
“Adam was born at the time of Asr on the 6th day. At that time the cycle of Jupiter was ending and the cycle of Saturn was about to begin. The affects of Saturn are that of cruelty and bloodshed. The angels thinking that Adam would be born under the affects of Saturn objected and said, ‘Why place on (earth) one who will cause corruption and shed blood.’”
Malfuzat V-5 (1963)
According to Mgq in Malfozaat he said Hazrat Adam pbuh was first human to be born without father Point is that if Adam pbuh was not first human then how was a first human was born without father?

“””An English scholar of Astronomy, Professor Wragge met the Promised Messiah on 12th May and 18th May 1908 in Lahore and asked him a few questions as reported in Malfooza’at Vol. 10, Pages 353 and 426. Among other questions he asked: “It is written in the Bible that Adam or say the first man was born in Jeehoon, Seehon and belonged to that country. Are, then, all the mankind, that is found in different parts of the world like America and Australia, the descendants of the same Adam?” To this question the Promised Messiah replied, “We do not follow the Bible in holding that the world began with the birth of Adam six or seven thousand years ago, and that before this there was nothing, and God was, as it were idle and without work. Neither do we claim that all mankind who are now found in different parts of the earth, are the progeny of the self-same Adam. On the Contrary we hold that this Adam was not the first man. Mankind existed even before him, as is hinted by the Quran itself, when it says to Adam, “I am about to place a Khalifa in the earth.” As Khalifa means successor, it is clear that man existed even before Adam. Hence we cannot say whether the original inhabitants of America, Australia etc. are the progeny of this last Adam or some other Adam gone before him.””””
Sahih Bukhari on Adam (as)
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 74, Number 246:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, “Allah created Adam in his complete shape and form (directly), sixty cubits (about 30 meters) in height. When He created him, He said (to him), “Go and greet that group of angels sitting there, and listen what they will say in reply to you, for that will be your greeting and the greeting of your offspring.” Adam (went and) said, ‘As-Salamu alaikum (Peace be upon you).’ They replied, ‘AsSalamu-‘Alaika wa Rahmatullah (Peace and Allah’s Mercy be on you) So they increased ‘Wa Rahmatullah’ The Prophet added ‘So whoever will enter Paradise, will be of the shape and form of Adam. Since then the creation of Adam‘s (offspring) (i.e. stature of human beings is being diminished continuously) to the present time.”
Adam (as) was a Giant
Narrated by Abu Huraira: The Prophet (S.A.W.) said, “Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall” (about 40 meters)
