Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ – Part 4 (Alive)

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

It’s Saturday 26th December 2020.

Today, we come to the final part of the miraculous life of Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ.

The enemies wanted to kill Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ. In order to do this, the Roman Soldiers raided the house that Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, was resting in. At that precise moment, Almighty Allāh lifted Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, to the skies.

One of the disciples (al-Ḥawāriyyūn), who had betrayed Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, had his features changed by Allāh, سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ, to resemble Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ. The soldiers brought him out and crucified him.

The Holy Qur’ān very explicitly mentions: “They did not kill him nor did they crucify him. They were put into doubt about him.” The Holy Qur’ān further states: “They definitely did not kill him. In fact, Almighty Allāh lifted him towards Him.”

So this was the miraculous way Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, left this world. He has not died a natural death. His birth was a miracle. His lifting to the skies was a miracle. His whole life was full of miracles.

Our beautiful religion teaches us that Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, will return to the world before the Day of Judgement and kill the Dajjāl (Antichrist). Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, will live as a follower of our Holy Prophet Muḥammad, صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎. He will marry and have children. He will have a natural death and be buried in the empty grave reserved in the Rawdāh Mubārak of our Beloved Prophet, صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎, in Madinah al-Munawwarah ,اِنْ شَاءَ الَّلهُ. 

Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, was the last Prophet to come into the world, after whom our Holy Prophet, صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎, came. Our Holy Prophet, صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎, is Khātamun-Nabiyyīn, meaning the Last of the Prophets, عَلَيْهِم ٱلسَّلَامُ. No other Prophet will come after our Holy Prophet, صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎.

Almighty Allāh grant us all the ability to follow in the footsteps of our Holy Prophet, صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‎, and always keep us steadfast on Islām and Īmān, Āmeen.

A humble request to please allocate some quality time to discuss this 4-part series on Ḥaḍrat ‘Īsā, عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ, with your children and generations to come.
