My Response for this claim consists of my personal writtings and the footnotes descriptions of the Holy Verses from my Holy Quran, which was translated by Sheik (Minister) Abdallah Yusuf Ali.
Anti-Islamic Claim: 46.Did Jesus Die already? Surah 3:144 states that all messengers died before Muhammad. But 4:158 claims that Jesus was raised to God (alive?).
My Response: Let us look at Noble Verse 3:144 "Muhammad is no more than an apostle: many were the messengers that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then Turn back on your heels? If any did turn back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah. but Allah (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude."
Let us look at Noble Verse 4:158 "Nay, Allah raised him (Jesus) up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;"
There is no contradiction in the Noble Verses above. Noble Verse 3:144 states "many were the apostle that passed away before him." The word "many" indicates that not every single apostle before Muhammad peace be upon him had passed away. Jesus peace be upon him did not pass away nor ever got killed.
For Noble Verse 3:144 above, it primarily applies to the battle of Uhud, in the course of which a cry was raised that the Messenger was slain. He had indeed been severely wounded, but Talhah, Abu Baker, and Ali were at his side, and his own unexampled bravery saved the Muslim army from a rout. This verse was recalled again by Abu Baker when the Messenger actually died a natural death eitht years later, to remind people that Allah, whose message he brought, lives forever. And we have need to remember this now and often for two reasons: (1) When we feel inclined to pay more than human honour to one who was the truest, the purest, and the greatest of men, an dthus in a sense to compound for our forgetting the spirit of his teaching, and (2) when we feel depressed at the chances and changes of time, and forget that the eternal Allah lives and watches over us and over all His creatures now as in all history in the past and in the future.
For Noble Verse 4:158, Please read my paper on Jesus in Islam.
Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross. I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken. My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
