Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) – Dead or Alive?

Duaa for Discussing the Critical Issues:

After all we are human being and may be wrong on some point, so we need to make a very special Duaa:

O Allah! Guide us and help us. If I am wrong, O Allah! Correct me. If others are wrong, O Allah correct them. If we all are wrong, O Allah correct all of us. AMEEN.

”Rabbi Zidnee Aailmaa”. (O my Lord! Increase me in knowledge). Ref: Al_Quraan_020.114 AMEEN.

”Rabbishrah Lee Sadree Wayassir Lee Amree Wahlul AAuqdatan Min Lisanee Yafqahoo Qawlee”. (O my Lord! expand my breast; And ease my task for me; And loose the knot from my tongue; So they may understand what I say). Ref: Al_Quraan_020.025 – 028) AMEEN.

”Rabbana Hab Lana Min Azwajina Wathurriyyatina Qurrata aAAyunin WajjAAalna Lilmuttaqeena imamaan”. (O our Lord! grant us in our wives and our offspring the joy of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous). Ref: Al_Quraan_025.074. AMEEN.


The main reason why we don’t understand the concept and the meaning of Quraan could be as mentioned in the Quraan as, “ … And yet ye study the Scripture? Will ye not understand?” (Al_Quraan_002.044).


Some one's Death could be very SECRET (e.g. Solomon {Peace Be Upon Him}), it was secret till worm ate his staff:

Then when We decreed that he [Solomon {Peace Be Upon Him}] should die [mawt], nothing divulged his death [mawtihi] to them except the worm that ate his staff. (Al_Quraan_034.014)


Allah has Perfected Islaam, No more Miracle:

In the Quraan Allah has told us that “… This day I have PERFECTED your Religion for you and COMPLETED My FAVOR unto you, and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAAM”. (Al_Quraan_005.003)

If anything is completed, does it NEED any Additions or Subtractions or Alterations? The absolute answer to this is only and only NO. Therefore any Hadeeth contradicting the Quraan, we are not supposed to accept and those are NOT Authentic Hadeeth. Since Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) already warned about the spreading of Hadeeth and how to verify them. So We all must have to follow that and a single proof should be enough for this that there are some Poor Hadeeth and we need to test all of them according to the Quraan. The Quraan is the real Authentic Source, FREE from and ERROR or CONTRADICTION.

Ali (RA) narrated, Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, there is NO DOUBT that, there will be Hadeeths coming after me, claiming that I have said those. So you MUST test each and every Hadeeth from the QURAAN. If it is really according to the QURAAN only then accept it otherwise reject it. (Sanan Dar Qatni, Vol-2, Book – Imrani Abee Musa, Matba Farooqi – 513)


Knowledge of Future is with Allah only: Messenger did not know when & where he would die:

Then, when We decreed (Solomon’s Peace Be Upon Him) death, nothing showed them his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his staff: so when he fell down, the Jinns saw plainly that if they had known the unseen, they would Not have tarried in the humiliating Penalty (of their Task). (Al_Quraan_034.014)

Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone). It is He Who knows rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one (including Messengers) know what it is that he will earn on tomorrow: nor does any one (including Messengers) know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things). (Al_Quraan_031.034)

Men ask thee concerning the Hour: say, The knowledge thereof is with Allah (alone): and what will make thee understand? Perchance the Hour is nigh. (Al_Quraan_033.063)

Say (O Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), to the disbelievers): I say not unto you (that) I possess the treasures of Allah, nor that I have knowledge of the Unseen; and I say not unto you: Lo! I am an angel. I follow only that which is inspired in me. Say: Are the blind man and the seer equal? Will ye not then take thought? [Al_Quraan_006.050]


Say (O Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him): I have no power over any good or harm to my self except as Allah willeth. If I had knowledge of the Unseen, I should have multiplied all good and no evil should have touched me: I am but a Warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have Faith. [Al_Quraan_007.188]


He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are clear revelations, they are the basis or fundamental (foundation) of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation. but none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding. (Al_Quraan_003.007)



Timing Analysis of the Second Coming of Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) in the Bible


Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) will Return according to the Bible:

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Mat. 24:29-30)

Let us Analyse it through the Quraan :

According the Quraan, on the day of Judgment / day of resurrection, the Moon and the Stars will be darkened and the Sun and the Moon will be joined together etc.

He asks: When is the day of resurrection ? But when sight is confounded, And the moon becomes dark, And the sun and the moon are brought together, Man shall say on that day: Whither to fly to? By no means! there shall be no place of refuge! (Al_Quraan_075.006-011)

Also

The angels will be all around, and eight angles will, that Day, bear the Thorne of your Lord above them. (Al_Quraan_069.017)

Not only Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) BUT all the Prophets will be gathered at their appointed times.

So when the stars are made to lose their light, And when the heaven is rent asunder, And when the mountains are carried away as dust, And when the messengers are gathered at their appointed time, To what day is the doom fixed? To the day of decision. (Al_Quraan_077.008-013)

O' Muslim be not like those who divide their religion and breakup into sects.

And (O' Muslims) be not like those who became divided and disagreed after clear arguments had come to them, and these it is that shall have a grievous chastisement. On the day when (some) faces shall turn white and (some) faces shall turn black; then as to those whose faces turn black: Did you disbelieve after your believing? Taste therefore the chastisement because you disbelieved. (Al_Quraan_003.105-106)

Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) will be questioned exactly like all other prophets:

And when Allah will say (on the Day of Judgment): O Isa (Peace Be Upon Him) son of Marium! did you say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah he will say: Glory be to Thee, it did not befit me that I should say what I had no right to (say); if I had said it, You would indeed have known it; You know what is in my mind, and I do not know what is in Your mind, surely You art the great Knower of the unseen things. I did not say to them aught save what You did enjoin me with: That serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord, and I was a witness of them so long as I was among them, but when You took me, You were the watcher over them, and Thou art witness of all things. (Al_Quraan_005_116 – 117)

Even Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) will be saying the same thing:

Then the Messenger (Peace Be Upon Him) will say: "O my Lord! Truly my people took this Quraan for just foolish nonsense." (Al_Quraan_025.030)

Also All Prophets (Peace Be Upon Him) will be saying the same thing:

One day will Allah gather the messengers together, and ask: "What was the response ye received (from men to your teaching)?" They will say: "We have no knowledge: it is You Who know in full all that is hidden." (Al_Quraan_005.109)


To understand about Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) Dead or Alive we need to do analysis of the Ayaat below:

There is none (not a single one) of the People of the book (including 1.5 Billion Muslims) but must believe in him (as only a Messenger of Allah) before his (Jesus Peace Be Upon Him) death. And on the Day of Resurrection (NOT Before), he (Jesus Peace Be Upon Him) will be a witness against them." (Al_Quraan_004.159)

First Proof:

The first proof that Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) is NOT Alive is this Ayaat itself, since it says that “on the Day of Resurrection (NOT Before), he (Jesus Peace Be Upon Him) will be a witness against them”, if Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) comes second time in this world then he will be witness in the world before the Day of Resurrection, which cannot be true according to the above mentioned Ayaat. The concept of Quraan cannot be wrong, BUT our pre-assumptions and our believe could be wrong. 

Second Proof:

For the second proof, we need to understand the meaning of People of the Book (Scripture).

Jews are the People of the Book, since they believe on the Torah, which is one of the Book of Allah.

Christian are the People of the Book, since they believe on the Injeel (Bible), which is one of the Book of Allah.

Similarly Muslims are the People of the Book, since they believe on the Quraan, which is also one of the Book of Allah.

This is also another proof that Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) is not Alive, since in the above Ayaat it is mentioned that “none (not a single one) of the People of the book (including 1.5 Billion Muslims) but must believe in him (as only a Messenger of Allah) before his (Jesus Peace Be Upon Him) death“, and Alhamdulillaah, around 1.5 Billion Muslims around the world believe on Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) as Messenger of Allah.

Third Proof:

For the third proof, Allah said that he will take away Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) and no where he mentioned that he will send back Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) again for the second time, instead He mentioned that what ever we are arguing about him (Peace Be Upon Him), He will tell us on the day of Judgement and NOT before.

Behold Allah said: O Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) I will take thee and raise thee to myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject Faith, to the day of resurrection (not before): then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute. (Al_Quraan_003.055)


Jesus / Isaa (Peace Be Upon Him) will be questioned exactly like all other prophets:

And when Allah will say (on the Day of Judgment): O Isa (Peace Be Upon Him) son of Marium! did you say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah he will say: Glory be to Thee, it did not befit me that I should say what I had no right to (say); if I had said it, You would indeed have known it; You know what is in my mind, and I do not know what is in Your mind, surely You art the great Knower of the unseen things. I did not say to them aught save what You did enjoin me with: That serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord, and I was a witness of them so long as I was among them, but when You took me, You were the watcher over them, and Thou art witness of all things. (Al_Quraan_005_116 – 117)

Even Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) will be saying the same thing:

Then the Messenger (Peace Be Upon Him) will say: "O my Lord! Truly my people took this Quraan for just foolish nonsense." (Al_Quraan_025.030)

Also All Prophets (Peace Be Upon Him) will be saying the same thing:

One day will Allah gather the messengers together, and ask: "What was the response ye received (from men to your teaching)?" They will say: "We have no knowledge: it is You Who know in full all that is hidden." (Al_Quraan_005.109)


May Allah UNITE all Muslims. AMEEN.
