“Terrible translating. Probably "Mahdi" in this instance was to mean guide, not Muhammad ibn Ali Askari”
Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t the Mahdi and the Guided One the same thing?
Regarding the second hadith, the references are given so please feel free to look the hadith up and show me how it’s been taken out of context.
You agree on the fact that Jesus
was a prophet born before Muhammad
, right? In verse 145, Al-Imran it says: “The Holy Prophet is but a prophet. There have been prophets before him and they had all died
…” Now, if every prophet that lived before Muhammad is dead, wouldn’t that include Jesus?
“his task was to reveal the gospel”
was given the gospel, but his prophethood and the message he was given was a confirmation of the Torah, not the Qur’an!
“And I have come confirming that which was before me of the Torah
, and to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a proof from your Lord. So fear Allah and obey me.” (3:50)
“And in their footsteps, We sent Jesus, son of Mary, confirming the Torah that had come before him, and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirmation of the Torah that had come before it
, a guidance and an admonition for the pious.” (5:46)
“And (remember) when Jesus, son of Mary, said: "O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allah unto you confirming the Taurat [(Torah) which came] before me
, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed. But when he (Ahmed i.e. Muhammad) came to them with clear proofs, they said: "This is plain magic” (61:6)
“he has completed his prophethood, which was essentially to reveal the message of God.”
His task was to reveal the message of God to the Jews, i.e. to clarify the Torah to all
12 tribes of the House of Israel. If Jesus was raised to heaven while he had only revealed his message to 2 of these tribes, then it means that his mission was never completed.
was indeed the last of Gods prophets, but not the last to die”
You see the problem is that some translate the title of Khatam al-Nabiyin as “The last of Prophets”. When someone is given the last position, it means that no one can come afterwards. I’ll give you an example. A
enters a room and then leaves it. After some time B
enters it and leaves it. A couple of minutes later A
comes back into the room. Who was the last person in the room? According to chronological order A
was the last in the room. It doesn’t make any difference if B
was the last to eat in the room, read in the room or whatever. A
was still the last person to be in the room. The same goes for the holy Prophet
. If Muhammad had been the last of Prophets then it has to mean that he was the last of the Prophets to live on this earth, as well. As we all know, the Qur’an tells us otherwise! @ NOSHADYLADY4
Let me summarize the first two points I tried to make in my last post, in case you missed them:
1. A law of God has to apply in all cases, that includes Jesus.
2. You claim that Jesus was put to sleep
and then raised to heaven. I provided verses from the Qur’an and hadiths that state that Jesus was put to death
, and I asked you to explain them.
“There are many things that may sound contradicting, Akhi, but it is Allah Only Who knows best their meaning.”
Allah never contradicts Himself. You on the other hand have made clear contradictions. In most of your posts you stick to the belief that Jesus will come to the Muslims, whereas in one of your recent post you said: “Jeses did not have time to fulfill his mission to all of Isreal. But Isreal knew he was there for a reason. Thus at his second coming, He will fulfill his mission as planned
and will go on to live his life and die.”
So let me ask you once and for all, are you referring to the mission of preaching to the 12 tribes of the Jews or not? If yes, then show me references that say that Jesus will continue his preaching to the Jews in his second coming. If your answer is no, do you believe that a mission that the Almighty wanted Jesus to complete can fail?@AbdullahUS
“Jesus, (Isaah), already had his time as a Prophet. He is designated to be the one prophet that will come back in the last days to perform a certain duty for Allah. He is not coming back to be a prophet again.”
Has Allah ever taken away prophethood from any of his prophets? If Jesus once was a prophet then he has to be a prophet till the Day of Resurrection too!
“He will not live as a man. He has been given a task to complete before he comes back and this task does not require the belief or non-belief from anyone.”
I am not sure what you mean by this statement. What exactly do you mean by saying that Jesus won’t live as a man? What task do you believe that Jesus is to complete and how does it not require belief? Kindly explain yourself!
