Jesus’ crucifixion in Islam

The Islamic opinion of Jesus’ (PBUH) crucifixion is that he (PBUH) was never crucified, as the Jews and Christians claim. Muslims derive their opinion, which oppose what the Gospels mention, from the Quranic verses, which confirm this opinion.The Quranic verses mention the conspiracy that happened to Jesus (PBUH). They mention many other things, which the reader could notice them. It mentioned Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue from his enemies’ conspiracy.Allah (S.W.), while listing His blessings and graces to Jesus (PBUH) says, “And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee” (Alma’ida: 110)This response from Allah (S.W) was on that crucial day, on which the Romans and the Jews conspired in order to kill and crucify Jesus (PBUH). However, Allah (S.W) turned their conspiracy down. “And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.” (Al Imran: 54), Allah (S.W) saved His prophet –Jesus (PBUH) – from their conspiracy and deception.The Quranic verses mention some accounts of this Jewish conspiracy. “That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah.;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:- Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise”. (An NiSA’:157-158)Another verse pointed to Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue and his ascending to heaven. “Behold! Allah said: “O Jesus! 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.” (Al Imran: 55)The verses also pointed at his rescue. Allah (S.W) says, “He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity.” (Al Imran: 46)It is known that Jesus (PBUH) was ascended to heaven in his thirties. Elderliness, in language, is coupled with old age. Means, after Jesus passing the first stage of his life he will live and reach the elderliness and he will talk to people. There is no other meaning; otherwise, it is not necessary to mention elderliness and his ability to talk when talking about Jesus’ (PBUH) miracles, because every one is able to talk in his old age, and no miracle in that.The Holy Quran mentions, in another verse, that Jesus (PBUH) will descend to earth in the last days and before the Judgment Day.Allah (S.W) says, “And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour).” (Az Zukhruf: 61)Allah (S.W) also says, “And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them.” (An Nisa’: 159)Neither the Quranic verses nor Prophet Mohammad’s (PBUH) sayings mentioned any details of Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue. Therefore, Muslim scholars had to search for the truth that the Holy Quran mentions from what the people of the book passed to us. Alternatively, they searched the Holy Bible, to find out how Jesus (PBUH) was saved from the Jews’ conspiracy.The Holy Quran mentions the occurrence of the crucifixion but not for Jesus (PBUH). It shows the Jews’ and others’ ignorance of the identity of the crucified person. It also shows their disagreement about who he was, because Allah (S.W.) made the crucified person look the same as Jesus (PBUH).Allah (S.W.) says, “They killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts.” (An Nisa’: 157)The doubt in this verse is about the identity of the crucified person. The Holy Quran does not specify his identity, but it does assure Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue and his ascending to heaven. “For of a surety they killed him not:- Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise”. (An Nisa’: 157- 158)Thus, The Holy Quran mentions Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue and his ascending to heaven. His enemies, who wanted to crucify him, were in doubt and crucified another person. Allah (S.W.) raised Jesus (PBUH), and he will be back before the Day of Judgment. His coming (PBUH) will be a sign of the end of this life on earth.تعديل / حذف المشاركة
