Did the Quran say Jesus died?
Mohamad Mostafa Nassar
Anti-Islamic Claim: Did Jesus Die already as per your Qur’an.
Well, let us examine that here:
Surah Qur’an 3:144 states that all messengers died before Muhammad. But Qur’an 4:158 claims that Jesus was raised to God (alive?).
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 died a natural death eight 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, and thus 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.
Did Isaiah 53 really prophesy about the crucifixion of Jesus?
It supports Islam’s claims about Jesus’ peace be upon him never died on the cross. We 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.
Our 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 whatsoever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
The translation given is:
“Dogs surround me, a pack of villains encircles me; they pierce my hands and my feet.” (NIV)
While the real translation of this verse is:
“For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: like a lion my hands and my feet.”
According to the Jewish scriptures:
This verse is mistranslated, the word used is “Kari” which means “Like a lion”
Here’s the text:
כִּי סְבָבוּנִי, כְּלָבִים:
עֲדַת מְרֵעִים, הִקִּיפוּנִי;
כָּאֲרִי, יָדַי וְרַגְלָי
The whole chapter of Isaiah 53 is not referring to Jesus (PBUH), he is referring to the Jewish people, and it’s a continuation of Isaiah 52
First, Isaiah 53 start with:
“Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?”
This verse alone makes no sense, but if you associate him with Isaiah 52 it will be clearer.
Let’s take some verses of Isaiah 52 and compare them with Isaiah 53:
Isaiah 52: 4-5
For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “At first my people went down to Egypt to live; lately, Assyria has oppressed them.
And now what do I have here?” declares the LORD. “For my people have been taken away for nothing, and those who rule them mock,” declares the LORD. “And all day long my name is constantly blasphemed.
The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.
So, he will sprinkle many nations, and kings will shut their mouths because of him. For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand.
Can you see the connection between Isaiah 52 and Isaiah 53?
There has been a warning to the Gentile king, but
“Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” Isaiah 53:1
And now, the comparison
1) Isaiah 53:8
“By oppression and judgment, he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people, he was punished.”
This verse goes with Isaiah 52:5:
“And now what do I have here?” declares the LORD. “For my people have been taken away for nothing, and those who rule them mock,” declares the LORD. “And all day long my name is constantly blasphemed.
2) Isaiah 53:1
Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
This verse goes with Isaiah 52:10
“The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.”
As we know Jesus is supposed to be killed at the age of 37-38 and had no prosperity, but the prophecy of Isaiah 53 says
Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.
Allah knows Best.
Almighty Allah is the highest and most knowledgeable, and the attribution of knowledge to him is the safest.
Right from Almighty Allah and wrong from me and Satan

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
