Jesus (as) was a true prophet of God who was sent “to the lost sheep of the House of Israel” (1) and came “to seek and save that which was lost” (2).
A significant part of Jesus’ life is shrouded in mystery. It is generally believed that his body ascended to the heavens. Although most Muslims and Christians both share this belief, Christians believe that Jesus (as), being the son of God, died on the cross to atone for the sins of mankind and then his body was later resurrected and ascended to heaven. Most Muslims believe that Jesus (as) ascended to heaven before the crucifixion actually happened. Both Muslims and Christians believe in the second coming of Jesus in the latter days, where that same Jesus will descend in the same body.
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi (as) was the first one who refuted this common belief. In his books, particularly, Jesus in India (3), he not only established with proven facts that Jesus did not die on the cross but also demonstrated that he traveled to Afghanistan, India, and the surrounding lands, died at the age of 120, and was buried in Khaniyar, Srinagar, Kashmir.
If Jesus’ life on earth ended at the age of thirty-three, then he would not be able to fulfill his mission of finding the lost tribes of Israel. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) presented proofs from the Holy Qur’an, Scriptures, historical, and evidence-based on current medical knowledge to show that Jesus (as) was taken off the cross alive and was taken to the sepulcher, where he was treated for his wounds with a special ointment. He recuperated there for three days and then left on a journey to find the lost tribes of the Israelites.
At this time in history, the Israelites were divided into twelve tribes. Ten of those tribes were driven out of the land and moved toward the East. They settled in Afghanistan, Kashmir, and other parts of India. Many renowned historians, as well as Jewish writings, have documented this fact: “The confirmation of what has been stated above is to be found in ‘Tabaqat-i-Nasiri’ where it is stated: …in the time of the Shansabi dynasty, a people called Bani Israel (Children of Israel) used to live in Asareth and were engaged in trade. Thomas Ledlie, in his book, More Ledlian, writing on the origin of Afghans, gives cogent reasons for connecting Asareth with Hazara District in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan, and the territory of Kashmir adjoins that of Hazara. But the old boundary of Asareth in Swat was just on the opposite bank of the Indus River, and, higher up near Chilas, it ran into Kashmir territory” (4).
There are plenty of historical records and inscriptions showing that the people of Afghanistan and Kashmir are direct descendants of the Israelites. There is a long list of historians and authors documenting this fact. The most ancient manuscript is Rauzat uo Albab fi Tawarikh-ul-Akabir wal Ansab (The Garden of the Learned in the History of Great Men and Genealogies) by Abu Suleman Daud bin Abul Fazal Muhammad Albenaketi. Other such texts include Mirat-ul-Alam by Bukhtawar Khan, Khulasat-ul-Ansab by Hafiz Rahmat bin Shah Alam, Risala-i-Ansab-i-Afghana by Fareed-ud-Din Ahmad Travels into Bokhara, by Sir Alexander Burnes, Narrative of a Mission to Bokhara in the Years 1843-1845 by Dr. Joseph Wolff, An Historical and Descriptive Account of Persia and Afghanistan by J.B. Farser, are a few to name from a long list of books and authors (5).
In “The Lost Tribes of Israel,” Mirza Muzaffar Ahmad states:
“The first three early historians of Kashmir, namely Mulla Nadiri (1378-1416) in his book Tarikh Kashmir (The History of Kashmir), Mulla Ahmad in his book Waqqya-i-Kashmir (Events of Kashmir), and Abdul Qadar Bin Qazi-ul-Quzat Wasil Ali Khan in his book Hashmat-i-Kashmir, have all categorically stated that the inhabitants of Kashmir were the descendants of Israel. The last-mentioned author adding that they had come from the Holy Land” (6).
The proclaimed mission of Jesus was to seek, preach to and save the lost tribes of Israel. Following his escape from the cross and sensing danger in staying at the place of his persecution, we find him traveling in disguise to Damascas through Judea, Samaria, Nazareth, and the Sea of Tiberius in search of the lost tribes. The place where Jesus first stayed for a time, about two miles from Damascas, is even to this day known as Maqam-i-Isa (which means the resting or halting place of Jesus) and was initially called Rabwah.
Mir Muhammad Khawand Shah Ibn-i-Muhammad wrote in his famous book “Rauza-tus-Safa fi Sirat-ul-Ambia wal Muluk wal Khulafa (The Gardens of Purity Concerning the Biography of the Prophets, Kings and Caliphs)” that the Jews turned Jesus (as) out of the city and Jesus (as) and Mary (as) set out and went to Syria, and then from there, Jesus (as) traveled to Mosul and then to Aleppo.
It is stated that during his journey, Jesus traveled incognito under the name of Yuz Asaf, the word Yuz stands for Yusu (meaning Jesus), and Asaf in Hebrew means gatherer, namely, one who was to gather the lost sheep of Israel.
Next, we hear of Jesus in Iran. It is said that Yuz Asaf came to this country from the West and preached there, and many believed him. The sayings of Yuz Asaf, as recorded in Iranian traditions, are similar to those of Jesus (7).
We can then trace Jesus in Afghanistan: In Ghazni (Western Afghanistan) and in Jalalabad (in the extreme southeast of Afghanistan), there are two platforms that bear the name of Yuz Asaf, for he sat and preached there. We then find a quotation from Acta Thomae, which records the presence of Jesus and his disciple Thomas at Taxila in present-day Pakistan.
Jesus (as), his mother Mary (as), and Thomas proceeded toward Murree, also in Pakistan. Mary (as) died there and was buried at a hilltop known as Pindi-Point. The town Murree was called Mari until 1875 and was named after her. Her tomb adjoining the Defense Tower is even today called “Mai Mari da Asthan” or “The Resting Place of Mother Mary” (8).
We can almost with certainty trace the entry of Jesus (as) into Kashmir through a valley called Yusu Margh, which is named after him and where the race of Yudu (Jews) is still to be found. It lies on the bridle route followed by merchants coming, generally on foot, from Kaghan and Afghanistan. The Kaghan valley, on one side, touches Kashmir and on the other, touches the Murree hills. Aish Muqam (about 47 miles from Srinagar) is not far from Yusu Margh. In fact, it lies on the same route. Aish or Ashush is also considered to be a variation of the word Issa or Jesus (as).
The prophet Jesus (as) lived there to the age of 120 and was then buried in Kashmir. Another decisive piece of evidence in support of this is provided by the discovery of his tomb in Mohalla Khaniyar in Srinagar. It is called Rauzabal and is described as the tomb of Yuz Asaf, the prophet, who is also styled as Shahzada Nabi (the Prince of Prophet). This discovery and revelation were made by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi (as) through Divine guidance and research. Here again, we find strong evidence in support of the proclamation. We find a description of the tomb in the book of the “British Resident in Kashmir” by Sir Francis Younghusband:
“There resided in Kashmir some 1,900 years ago a saint of the name of Yuz Asaf, who preached in parables and used many of the same parables as Christ uses, as, for instance, the parable of the sower. His tomb is in Srinagar [..…] and the theory is that Yuz Asaf and Jesus are one and the same person. When the people are in the appearance of such a decided Jewish cast, is it curious that such a theory should exist?” (9).
Hence the prophet Jesus (as) escaped from the cursed death on the cross and traveled to the East, specifically to India. He lived up to the age of one hundred and twenty years and died naturally after fulfilling his mission of guiding the lost sheep of Israel.

✝️MAY TESTIMONY✝️ Praise God, I was a Muslim, I converted to Christianity on 16 of May 2021. I am 76 years old now.
After I read the Bible and I found these verses my faith was shaken.
“You must not make idols for yourselves, and you do not build idols or statues ( Kabah Stone ) for yourselves; Do not place carved stones in your land to worship them, for I am the LORD your God.” Imamat 26:1.
—Whoever bows down and worships idols, ( Kabah ?) Allah will curse their 3,4 offspring! Exodus 20:5.
Their land is filled with idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their own fingers have made.Isaiah 2:8.(Bible)
FROM AL QURAN
Whoever associates partners with Allah, then indeed he has committed a grave sin. Q.4:48.
The unpardonable sin, the sin of Shirk.
JESUS IS THE REDEEMER OF SIN
For in Him and through His blood we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace, which He bestowed on us in all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:7
JESUS IS THE WITNESS
For there are three who bear witness (in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one (the Spirit). 1 John 5:
MY SCHOLARS TOLD ME THAT:
STONES ARE THE REDEEMER OF SINS
Ibn Umar said: I heard the Prophet say: .Touching the 2 Black Stones and al-Rukn al-Yamani is penance.” (HR. Termidzi)
STONES ARE THE WITNESS
By Allah, indeed Allah will resurrect the Black Stone on the Day of Judgment. He has two eyes that he sees with him, he testifies for who wipes him with the truth” (HR Tirmidhi).
THERE IS THE HATE DOCTRINE
OF ISIS. HAMAS. IRAN. AFGHANISTAN ETC
“I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will leave no one but Muslims” Sahih Muslim 4366 –
I have been ordered to fight against people until they testify that there is no god but Allah” Sahih Muslim
O you who believe, verily the polytheists are unclean , so they should not approach the Grand Mosque  after this year QS. 9:28
Non Muslim can not enter the Meccah and Madinah city till now!? This is discrimination act against Jews and Christians and others
Verily, the disbelievers, namely the People of the Book and the polytheists, will go to the Hell of Jahannam; they live in it. They are the worst creatures. (Q.98:6)
After 600 years the redeemer of sin and the witness on the Day of Judgment had changed from The Spirit of Jesus as redeemer and witness to THE STONES as redeemer and witness. There is Hate doctrine toward Jews and Christians that I do not like it .
The Ismaili Muslim sect is not oriented towards the Kaaba Rock. They pray 3 times a day according to the Koran.
Ismaili Muslims also do not perform the Hajj pilgrimage
See the link: http://www.isamail.net
So I believed that I committed idolatry for 70 years.
I worshiped God through Kabah’s Stone in Saudi Arabia, 5 X a day. In 1991 I went to Mekkah and surrounded Kabah Stone 7 X, I kissed the Hajar Aswad ( Black stones ) and then I bowed down and worshiped God.
I repented to God and I believed Jesus is my Lord and my Savior.
OTHER VERSES OF JESUS TEACHING THAT INSPIRED ME AS FOLLOWING.
1. There is no 1 verse of commandment to kill other and Jesus never killed people and went to war or fought other. Wow 👍
2. Jesus’s teachings are based on LOVE. Because Jesus is Love.
We have known and have believed in the Father’s love for us. The Father is love, ❤️ and whoever remains in love remains in the Father and the Father in him. 1 John 4:16
3. ❤️ LOVE ALL PEOPLE “Love your neighbor as yourself. “There is no greater commandment than this,” HE said. Matthew 22:37 Woww👍
4. ❤️ LOVE YOUR ENEMY— I (Jesus) say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may become children of your Father in heaven.👍 Matthew 5:44
But if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink! Romans 12:20
6, I PRAY 5 TIMES AND I ASK GOD,—-IH DINAS- SIRATAL MUSTAQEEM. (Show me the straight path Allah : Jesus answer ; I am the Way and the Truth and the Life, no one can come to Heaven except through Jesus or the Gospel. John 14:6 Wow 🤩
7. And salvation is found in no one but in Him, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we can be saved.” Acts 2 4:12.
These verses above made me to leave Islam.
Then I decided to leave Islam and followed Jesus. Praise God
On May 16,2021 I called my friend, she took me to a Pastor for baptism .
I became a child of God, I was a new person in spirit.
Thank Jesus, You are my saviour, my Lord, my best friend. I honor and worship You forever.
My conclusion after I read the Bible are:
BIBLE is the best book in the world
BIBLE is the best Seller in the world
BIBLE is the oldest book in the world
BIBLE is the best teaching and the best result in the world
JESUS is the Best Prophet with Holy Spirit of God
JESUS is the only Prophet or man who lives in Heaven
JESUS will come again on Earth to judge and to save people to Heaven.
JESUS will take us as His follower to Heaven
JESUS loves all people and wants to save all People who believe in Him.
JESUS ASKS ALL PEOPLE TO BE BAPTIZED !
“Repent and be baptized each one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
In the glorious name of Jesus. Amen 🙏
In the name of Jesus Christ from Nazareth, I have given my testimony to glorify You, God alone. Amen. ✝️🙏✝️
dream on. There is no ‘original bible’. Or can you show me one?
RAFIQ ! IT IS EASY TO CHOOSE THE TRUE TEACHING BETWEEN BIBLE AND AL QURAN +HADITH—-
🍎 FROM THE FRUIT YOU WILL KNOW ITS TREE 🍎
Thus every good tree bears good fruit, while a bad tree produces bad fruit. Matthew 7:17
And every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Matthew 7:19
If the teaching is true from God, it will surely produce a society full of love, peace, joy and full of useful works for humanity. Truly a blessing for many people.
But if the teaching is heretical, it will produce fruit filled with hatred, discrimination, conflict, murder and poverty from the works of Science and Technology. Like Islamic countries. Muslim kills Chtistian and Ahmadiyah in Islamic countries.,., Do you still think that Islam is a peaceful religion? I dont think so Rafiq?!?!
It’s very easy to choose the right teaching
THIS IS THE FRUIT OF TEACHING OF JESUS
And according to a 2012 Pew Research Center survey, within the next four decades, Christians will remain the world’s largest religion; if current trends continue, by 2050 the number of Christians will reach 2.9 billion (or 31.4%).👍
According to a study from 2015, Christians hold the largest amount of wealth (55% of the total world wealth), 👍
followed by Muslims (5.8%), Hindus (3.3%), and Jews (1.1%).
Kekayaan umat Kristen 10 x dari umat Islam👍
Millions Muslim, Hindu and atheist immigrate to Christian’s nations or countries.
Like Europe, Canada, Australia and USA.
Mullion Muslims AHMADIYAH love to live there compared to their own countries or Islamic countries or Middle East.
This is the fact and the truth.
I suggest you !
“Repent and be baptized and God will forgive your sins.
Jesus said “The time is fulfilled; the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe in the gospel!” Mark 1:15
✝️ PEOPLE WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN JESUS —- ETERNAL HELL ✝️
And everyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:13-15 TB
In the name of Jesus you will be blessed Amen ❤️❤️❤️🙏
👍JESUS’S FOLLOWERS STILL SUPERIOR TO OTHERS👍
[Remember], when Allah said: “O Isa, indeed I will convey you to the end of your death and lift you up to Me (Into Heaven) and cleanse you from those who disbelieve, and make those who follow you ( Jesus) above (supetior) ) those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection Q.3:55 Wow .It’s proven 👍
In the name of Jesus God will open your heart and repent your sins and follow Jesus. Amen ✝️🙏✝️🙏
Alhamdolillah. All praise is due to Allah. Who forgives without having to murder any one (‘son’ or ‘prophet’).
From the fruit you will recognize them. Yea…. holocaust. Colonial massacres. do you need more examples of the ‘fruit’ ?
The difference between Somitempo and me is that he speaks of theory and I speak of facts / practices. See the actions of Christians here. https://www.bbc.com/reel/video/p0f0pvg8/the-unspeakable-barbarity-committed-against-niger
AHMADIYAH has been insulting the faith of Christians since 100 years ago that jesus did not die on the cross.
Bible clearly say that Jesus died on thr cross and rose from the grave at 3rd day.
For Christ also died once for all our sins, He who is just for those who are not righteous, that He might bring us to God; He, who was killed in His human state, but who has been raised according to the SPIRIT of the LORD. 1. Peter 3:18.
For for this reason Christ died and came to life again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. Romans 14:9
He is not here, He is risen. Remember what he said to you while he was still in Galilee,
namely, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinners and be crucified, and rise again on the third day.” Luke 24:6-7
In the name of Jesus bless those who insulted Jesus. Amen ✝️🙏✝️
This sinner thing is what made the Catholic Church very rich. ‘Give me your land and I forgive you your sins’. Clever, look at the monastries and their land holdings….
