Question No.1:      Write clearly the Islamic, Jewish, Christian and Mirzai’s point of view concerning Hazrat Isa’s Alaih-i-Salam life.

Answer.           Islamic point of view.

Like faith in ‘Khatm-e-Nubuwwat’, the faith in Hazrat Isa’s Alaih-i-Salam lifting and reappearing forms the basis of Muslim Faith. The clear verses of the Holy Quran, continuous Ahadith and the consensus of the Muslim opinion proves it. Muslim scholars have clarified it in Tafseer, explanation of the sayings of the Holy Prophet and books on scholastic philosophy.

The Islamic view point concerning Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam

                        The Islamic view point concerning Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam is that he was the son of virgin Mary (Maryam Alaih-i-Salam and he was the last Prophet of Bani Israel. The Jews were hostile towards him and at last when at an occasion they planned to murder him, God sent His angels and lifted him to heavens while he was alive. God granted him a long life. When near Doomsday ‘Dajjal’, (antichrist) who will cause mischievous in the world, appears, Christ will reappear. One of the signs of Doomsday is that Christ will reappear and kill ‘Dajjal’. He will appear as a great justice and in that Ummah he will be Holy Prophet’s Caliph. He himself will follow Quran and Hadith and will make other people follow the Islamic Shariat (law). At that period all religions except Islam will disappear. There will be no atheist in the world. So, the commandment of Jihad will not be valid, no revenue or tax will be called from the non-Muslims because every one will be a Muslim. There will be abundance of things and money. No one will accept things or money from others. After his appearance, Christ will marry also and will have children. Then Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam or Christ will die and Muslims, after saying his funeral Prayer, will burry him in Holy Prophet’s SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam tomb. All these things have been described in detail in ‘Ahadith’, whose number is more than one hundred.

The important elements of Islamic Faith:

1-                             Hazrat Isa Alaih-i-Salam is God’s man and His Messenger. He is the ‘Maseh’ about whom the previous books tell. He has appeared once as a true Prophet.

2-                             He remained safe from the Jews, (Jews could not harm him).

3-                             He was lifted alive to heavens.

4-                             He is still alive there.

5-                             Before the day of Judgment, the very Christ (Isa Alaih-i-Salam) will appear and kill the ‘Dajjal’. No other person will come in the world in his place.


          Jewish point of view is that ‘Maseh’ (Christ) has not yet appeared and the man who called himself Christ was in fact a magician and false claimer of Prophethood (May God forgive). So the Jews were hostile towards him and they planned to murder and hang him. And according to them they succeeded in doing so, as the Quran says:

        (Sura Nisa: 157)

               “That they said (in boast), We killed Christ, the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah.”

               “About the claim of murdering Christ, the son of Mary, all the Jews agree. However, one group says that after the murder he was hanged so that he might be insulted and more and more people knew it. The other group says that he was murdered by fixing four nails on the cross”     (Mahazara Almia Number 4, p.14, By Qari Muhammad Usman).


               The Christians have the faith that ‘Maseh’ has appeared who is Christ, the son of Mary. But after it there emerged two groups.

1-                             he larger group says that the Jews murdered and hanged him. After it God made him alive and lifted him to heavens. They believe that Christ’s being hanged became Christians’ atonement for their sins. That is why they worship the cross.

2-                             The other sect says that he was lifted to heavens without being murdered.

          The sects believe that Messiah will reappear near the Day of Judgment. He will appear as God and will take people to task.

               In short, the majority of the Jews and Christians believes in Christ’s death on cross. Both are waiting for a Messiah. The Jews are waiting because the foretelling has not fulfilled yet, while the Christians are waiting because on the day of Judgment Christ, in the form of God, will make judgment among people.


               Whatever Mirza Qadiani has written in his books, ‘Azala Oham, Tohfa Goledia, Nazoole Maseeh, Haqeeqatul Wahi,’ etc. has been summarized by Mirza Bashir Ahmed M.A. under the title ‘Haqeeqy Islam’. He writes“During this discussion (Mirza Qadiani) has stressed the following important issues.

1-                             Christ was a human being like other human beings and he was put to cross because of enemies’ mischieves. But God saved him from this cursed death and after it he left his country secretly.

2-                             After leaving his country Christ reached Kashmir and there he died. His grave is also there (in Khaniar colony of Sri Nagar)

3-                             No human being, with his body, can go to heavens. So, even the idea that Christ reached heavens is false.

4-                             There is no doubt in it that there was a promise of the reappearance of Christ, but it does not mean the reappearance of Christ himself but of a man like Christ.

5-                             And the promise of the annunciation of a man like Christ has been fulfilled in his (Mirza Qadiani) form. He is the promised Christ with whom truth will dominate. Mirza Qadiani swears and writes:

“I am the same promised Christ who has been foretold by Hazrat Muhammad SallAllah-o-Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam in Sahey Ahadith. These Ahadith are included in Sahey Bukhari and Muslim and other ‘Sahay books.”
