Proof #13: The conjecture


And their saying, 'We did kill the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah;' whereas they slew him not, nor crucified him, but he was made to appear to them like one crucified; and those who differ therein are certainly in a state of doubt about it; they have no definite knowledge thereof, but only follow a conjecture; and they did not convert this conjecture into a certainty; On the contrary, Allah exalted him to Himself. And Allah is Mighty, Wise. (4:158-159)

The emphasis is upon their failure to murder Jesus by any means. The reader is reminded that the very beginning of the verse refers to the Jewish boast that they had succeeded in murdering Jesus.

This Jewish claim is firmly rejected by the Holy Quran. That is why by the end of verse, the conclusive declaration is that whatever may have happened they certainly failed to kill him. This implies that it is not the act of crucifixion which is denied. What is denied is death by crucifixion.

The true life story of Jesus was written by his disciples who were with Jesus and listened to his teachings,followed him everywhere, witnessed his crucifixion and saw him alive after resurrection. They preached the message of Christianity, always bringing the event of crucifixion to the people. People in those days knew about the crucifixion of Jesus. When the disciples were preaching about Jesus, no unbelieving person ever denied the fact that Jesus was crucified on the Cross. Jesus disciples ran away and denied Him, when he was arrested. They found faith and courage to witness about Jesus only after seeing Him alive after the resurrection. If Jesus did not raise from the dead, then why would these scared disciples who were afraid for their lives, ever preach His message. After seeing Jesus raised to life, they preached the word of Jesus throughout the world without any fear for their own lives and we all know that after a few years they were all martyred, but the teaching of Jesus spread throughout the world. The entire history of Jesus is written in the Bible, by people who were with Him through His lifes journey on Earth.....I do not want to criticise the Quran and its teachings, since religion is a sensitive subject for everyone and we are brought up based on its teachings and its very difficult for anyone to accept another teaching as true.....Religion is meant to bring peace and love for everyone on this Earth and not hatred or division....A Muslim will always say that the Quran is the true word of God and the Christian would say the Bible, the Hindu would say Bhagvad Gita etc and the atheist would say there is no God....Thousands of years have passed and there has still not been one world religion. There has always been various religions present.....God will judge everyone based on their conduct on Earth.....You may still disagree, but remember you believe in the Quran because you were born in a Muslim family. If you were born in a Christian family you would have believed the Bible.....Live in peace with everyone. Let God be the judge.

i think br asif omer is soewhat mistaken or he's trying to mislead people.
We say: "Inn Allaha 'alaa kulli shaiyin qadeer". So nothing is impossible for God, nothing inconceivable for Him. Is if far more difficult to create the Heavens & Earth or that which youo feel God cannot do with Jesus?

Asif, you seem to be of the Ahmadiyyah sect.
Besides Ahmadiyyah is not part of Islam.

If you knew Arabic, you wouldn't use translations of the Quran from so and so, and present a distorted explanations of the verses of the Quran.

To study Islam you should know Arabic, only Arabic.

Allah asks you to believe the Quran completely and wholeheartedly. If you believe in some part of it while rejecting others, would you be part of the Believers or the people of the Book?

If you don't understand the verses that you have quoted, learn Arabic first, learen from the learned. If you know Arabic, don't distort the Quran and show a negative image of the Quran and Islam.
Still if you dont believe in the verses that you have quoted, there's no problem until your eyes won't believe what you'll see at the time of your last breath and worse on Judgement Day!
