Ahmadi’s don’t follow the writings of MGA in many cases. The case of Adam (as) is yet another. In 1895, MGA wrote in Arya Dharam that Eve was created from the rib of Adam (as)(see Sahih Bukhari in the below). 2 years later in 1898, in Kitab ul Barriya, MGA was claiming that he was born with a twin sister, however, this seems to be a lie. It seems that MGA was creating a back story. About 10 years later, MGA was asserting that Adam (as) was created as a twin (see the full quote in the below). Later on, in Malfuzat, MGA and his team of writers seems to have given additional data on Adam (as) not being the first man. Watch my video on this here. This belief is totally unislamic. In the Quran, 2:35-36, proves that Adam (as) was living in Jannah (heaven) with Allah. Allah then created Eve. Allah then sent them both to Earth, through the 7 heavens.
The Ahmadiyya belief that Adam (as) wasn’t the first human comes from 1947 and the publishing of Tafsir-e-Kabeer. The introduction to that commentary had a long entry wherein the Khalifa (Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad) wrote that before Adam (as) there were humans already on the planet. He continued and claimed that the humans who were already on the planet were Jin, since they hadn’t evolved fully. This is blasphemy and totally against Islam. Obviously, the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s were indirectly agreeing with the theory of evolution (Darwinism). They took all of this from Sir Syed Ahmad Khan who most likely denied the traditional creation story in Islam.”
The islamic perspective is as follows, Adam (as) and Eve were the two first humans on Earth. Allah them brought animals, fruit, sugar, chocolate, all in pairs. This is what the verses of the Quran mean when taken together. There are about 9 verses in the Quran which refer to Allah creating in pairs. However, this doesn’t contradict the idea that Adam (as) was not born a twin. Tafsir ibn Kathir tells us that Allah created Eva (as) from the rib (bone and blood) of Adam (as). Allah created everything from dust, its all the same ingredients, just look at the table of elements, they prove that Allah can make a human from another human easily. 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).
Verses which prove that humans were made in pairs after Adam (as) was sent to Earth are as follows: 78:8—–“””And We created you in pairs”” and 53:45, 51:49, 55:52, 43:12, 42:11, 36:36, 35:11 and 39:6.
