Salaam 'Alaikum,

A christian once asked me this question, but I didn't have a good historical background to answer this..

1) Why did God send Muhammad 600 years after Jesus, denying the crucifixion while for 600 years people believed that Jesus was crucified.

2) Why is there no eye witnesses for Muhammad while Jesus had many eye witnesses.

Thank you!

Salam,

1. Crucifixion is accepted by the canon gospels. There is no crucifixion in other apocryphal gospels and no historical evidence of it beyond the Christian writings. Well known for Muslims is the Barnabas gospel although it is one of the most doubted of them for anachronism and many other considered mistakes in it.

2. Although many people think the opposite, there is no objective witness of any historical Jesus. All we know about Jesus is what Christians sources say (the gospels)

Complain/protest without details, really painful!
Wa (and) azkur (remind) fi (in) -l Kitaabi Maryma  (the Book of Mariam). (19:16)
Where is the twisting (in meaning of  zikr and kithab)?

Isn't it self evident that satan is the personification of the human instinct ? It tempts us to act with complete disregard to our own principles, it doesn't know right from wrong and wants what it wants. The more you let it guide your actions the more you're controlled by it etc etc.

You mean personification of bad human character?
Such as:
- Hatred
- Vengeful
- Proud
- Non Empathetic / Apathy
- Liar / Deceitful
- Egocentric

Then you can also find those characteristics especially among fanatics of today.. any type of fanaticism..

I don't buy any story / myth that anything can reject / refuse God's will or command.

No mention of any coma of 3isa or of any migration of 3isaa in the Qur'an.

I guess the gospel narrative of Jesus is so attractive many people feel that it is a great favour bestowed ont he Qur'an to introduce in it those qasaas, but the Qur'an does not contain them. And one is free to surmise whatever one wants, but those things are not in Qur'an. However there is that

3.45

قَالَتِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ يَا مَرْيَمُ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يُبَشِّرُكِ بِكَلِمَةٍ مِّنْهُ اسْمُهُ الْمَسِيحُ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ وَجِيهًا فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ وَمِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ ﴿٤٥﴾

(And remember) when the angels said: O Mary! Lo! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a word from him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, illustrious (wajiihan) in the world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near (unto Allah).



33.69
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ آذَوْا مُوسَىٰ فَبَرَّأَهُ اللَّـهُ مِمَّا قَالُوا ۚ وَكَانَ عِندَ اللَّـهِ وَجِيهًا ﴿٦٩﴾

O ye who believe! Be not as those who slandered Moses, but Allah proved his innocence of that which they alleged, and he was well esteemed (wajiihan) in Allah's sight.

Musa was not even threatened with something like crucifixion and he is deemed wajiihan before God, but not in front of men. However 3isaa is is deemed wajiihan in this life and in  he next.

The thing that he was crucified but not killed on the cross is clinging to straws. No crucifixion is admitted in the Qur'an neither with death result or without.

Salaam

Indeed, the disbelievers tried to destroy Isa, but Allah saved him. 3/54

They initially plotted to crucify him, they nailed him to a cross, hanged him on it and his blood flows but did not died on it, meaning they did not crucified him. So when they were in doubt about his death on the cross, he was pierced with a spear to ensure his death, that was the reason for their claimed that ‘we killed him’ instead of ‘we crucified him’ but that didn’t caused his death again, that is why we are informed that ‘of surety they did not killed him. 4/157

It was after he was raised from coma, all of his disciples believe in and helped him 3/52 - 53 and 4/159

And later migrated to a secured land 23/50

Migration is a trend for the messengers of God 17/76 - 77

He testify for the disciples 5/116 - 117

The more you let it guide your actions the more you're controlled by it etc etc.... I'm sure you can read Quran and find hints to that. But the way of reading those stories matters too. You can read it in a way that is relatable to your day to day life or you can read it as some weird story that you'll never understand. Up to the reader.

Salam Jkhan,

Thanks anyways for answering. Sometimes you cannot understand the scripture by yourself and by asking qutions and discussion you get to understand more. God teach you the scripture in many ways. He may make you understand it by yourself or by using other mediums eg like this forum at the end is for you to choose the best. God can make use of anyone to pass on a 'message' of truth (16:2, 40:15).
In the end someone listen to all message and choose the best (39:18)

God bless you
