( I invite the readers to join me in investigating the matter of death of Jesus in the light of Quran. Take a copy of Quran in Arabic or any translation you may prefer and follow the debate. Quran requests people to ponder over its message (47:24). I sincerely, knowledgebly and firmly believe and testify that there is no deity worthy of worshipping except Allah, and Muhammad(pbuh) is His last messenger. Before some zealous reader declares kufur judgement on me, remember that I testified Kalimah. Only Allah knows who is correct and perfect with his Imaan, so please do not pronounce your verdict and do not earn the wrath of Allah.

The Kalimah or Five-Pillars of Islam do not specifically recommend to believe Jesus is either alive or dead. The definition of a person having taqwa (al-muttakin) as given in various places also do not recommend to believe Jesus is alive or dead. So this factor is only secondary to your faith.

The reason for not believing in the death of Jesus is because originally Qadiani or Ahmadiyya groups propounded it. Let me assure you that I have no connection in whatsoever form with Qadiani or Ahmadiyya groups. However, if I read the Quran and try to understand it in its true spirit, I find the Quran clearly says, again and again, that Jesus is dead. If I believe Jesus is dead, all I am doing is following the teachings of the Qur’an. You can do the same, and still you will be a true Muslim by any means. It is a win-win situation. Brothers and sisters, please read the arguments and see the true teachings of Qur’an.)

Majority Muslims all over the world believe that Jesus(pbh) is alive in the Heaven. The accepted faith is Jews wanted to kill him on the cross, instead Allah raised him alive in the Heaven. This faith has been the subject of so much investigation that a consensus is difficult to reach. Those who believe and those who don’t believe come up with various evidences to justify their point of view.

This page is intended to show you plenty of evidences from Quran to prove that Jesus(pbh) is not alive — he is dead and that he was not raised alive in the Heaven. Yes, I know the evidences I will put forward will not be acceptable to most readers, although all the evidences will be from Quran. I can provide at least 25 evidences, but for ease of comprehending just five evidences may suffice. The purpose is to raise interest in the reader’s mind and let them investigate the issue in more detail.

Evidence #1:
The verse in 3:55 Allah uses a word which means death or termination of life. And the way the sentence is framed, it is evident that death will be be ahead of raising. Let us read the verse before going any further:

3:55 Behold! Allah Said: “O Jesus! I shall cause you to die (wafat) and I shall exalt you
towards me and I shall clear you of those who rejects Faith, and I am going to
make those who follow you above those who reject Faith – until the day of
Resurrection. Then unto Me is your return, so that I shall judge among you as
to in that wherein you used to differ.

  1. reallly nice
    world need to know the fact
    as companions of hazrat muhammad s.a.a.w made the true message to reach us its our duty to make it to reach them as well

  2. Some day every one believe that Jesus son of Marry did not die on Cross, but came alive from Cross and spent three days in the tomb (Mathew last chapter)and later travel toward east to spread message of God to Tribes of Israelite living in Eastern part of Jerusalem. (
    On the other hand if you read Holy Quran you will find several versus describing how the birth of mankind taken place in this world like:( God says:) you were dead We put life in you, then you will DIE and ultimately you will return to me. All this indicates Jesus did not Die on Cross but die a natural death.

    Peace be with you and the Mercy & Blessings of Allah

    Ahmadi Muslims hold the unique belief that Jesus (peace be upon him) survived the crucifixion and travelled towards India to continue his ministry among the Lost Tribes of Israel. Furthermore, they claim that his tomb, containing his body, has been recently re-discovered in India where it can be seen to this day. Ahmadi Muslims also assert that this belief is not only upheld by the Holy Quran and the Sayings of Muhammad sa, but even by the Holy Bible itself. @ http://www.alislam.org/topics/jesus/

    Jesus (pbuh), Son of Mary died a natural death at the age of 120 years. “The Messiah, son of Mary, was only a Messenger; surely Messengers like unto him had passed away before him. See how WE explain the Signs for their good, and see how they are turned away.” The Holy Quran, 5:76 @ http://www.alislam.org/library/articles/Death-on-the-Cross-Slides.pdf

    • The Founder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has over a century proclaimed that Allah revealed to him that Hazrat Issa Bn Maryam did not die on the Cross but died a natural death at a ripe old age of about 120 years and was buried in Khanyar Street in Srinagar Kashmir. There is nothing new in whatever Nadeem Qureshi is proving today. He may claim he oes not lean towards Ahmadi beliefs, yes that is how to deceivee his gullible audience who are adverse to the truth. The Mahdi has said this and heas shown from the Gloru=ious Quran his claims on the natural death of Jesus as.

  4. My dear, wether you like it or not Jesus Christ died and resurrected.
    I know quaran may say that Jesus Christ is alive or dead, i do not want to discriminate or try to tell which religion is the best i just want to tell you that Jesus Christ lives and will forever leave. Have you ever mentioned that name before when you are in trouble, have you ever called him to take charge of your suituation? if you have not, i want you to try it and see the eficacy of His Glory then you will know if He is or if He is not.

  5. Bismillaahirrahmaanirraheem

    Muslims should ponder over this. If Jesus is alive then MUHAMED (saw) is false(God forbid) because Our Holy PROPHET (saw) is prophecied to come after Jesus (as) and not in his lifetime. Let Jesus die so that Islam can live. Jesus was only a man just like all Prophets are only men and not gods . They are bound to die. If the Quran says Prophets like him died it just means he is also dead because he was human like them.

  6. What is ironic is that even mirza ghulam Ahmad believed hazrat Isa (alaihissalam) was alive for the majority of his life. Mirza ghulam Ahmad read the Quran and did not come up with any new interpretation regarding the messiah for many years even after claiming to be a scholar, reformer and mahdi.

    Mirza only changed his views after he lost debates with sir syed Ahmad Khan and mirza was unable to defend his earlier position.

    Sir Syed published an exegesis of the Holy Quran, Tafseerul Quran, around 1880, in which he gives his opinion about what happened to Jesus. This opinion formed the basis of Mirza’s so called ‘divine inspiration’ about the death of Jesus almost a decade later, and portions of Sir Syed’s book are copied into a book written by Mirza Ghulam in the late 1890s.
