"" But they who will disbelieve and treat Our signs as lies, these shall be the inmates of the Fire; herein shall they abide. "" 2:39
Jesus Dead vs. Jesus Alive.
Allah said in the Holy Quran:
19: 29. Thereupon she pointed to him. They said, `How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle ?'
19: 30. Jesus said, `I am a servant of ALLAH. HE has given me the Book, and has made me a Prophet;
19: 31. `And HE has made me blessed wheresoever I may be, and has enjoined upon me Prayer and almsgiving so long as I live;
19: 32. `And HE has made me dutiful towards my mother, and has not made me arrogant and graceless;
19: 33. `And peace was on me the day I was born, and peace will be on me the day I shall die, and the day I shall be raised up to life again.'
19: 34. That was Jesus, son of Mary. This is a statement of the truth concerning which they entertain doubt.
19: 35. It does not befit the Majesty of ALLAH to take unto Himself a son. Holy is HE. When HE decrees a thing, HE says to it, `Be, and it comes into being.'
In the above Verses (ayahs), Prophet Jesus (PBUH) intelligently clarifies the three stages the Human being must go through in his course of life. The Three stages are: Birth, Death, and resurrection for Judgment Day.
Now, Allah said in the following Verses (ayah):
4:158. And for their saying, `We did kill the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the Messenger of ALLAH;' whereas they killed him not, nor did they bring about his death upon the cross, but he was made to appear to them like one crucified; and those who differ therein are certainly in a state of doubt about it; they have no certain knowledge thereof, but only pursue a conjecture; and they did not arrive at a certainty concerning it.
4:159. On the contrary, ALLAH exalted him to Himself. And ALLAH is Mighty, Wise.
While in the preceding Verses (ayahs), Almighty Allah resents and denies the disbelievers claims of killing and crucifying Prophet Jesus (PBUH). On the contrary, Allah raised Jesus up unto Himself, and without specifying or elaborating on Jesus condition upon the raising. Now, By looking at the following Verse Allah said:
Remember the time when ALLAH said' `O Jesus, I will cause thee to die a natural death and will raise thee to Myself, and will clear thee of the charges of those who disbelieve, and will exalt those who follow thee above those who disbelieve, until the Day of Resurrection; then to ME shall be your return, and I will judge between you concerning that wherein you differ. 3: 56. Here Allah did in fact state the condition of Jesus when he was raised up, Jesus was dead, and it clearly makes perfect sense, since Jesus is only a human, and if he is going to leave earth, then his soul has to be rested.
Allah takes 6 days to create the Universe vs. Allah taking 8 days to create the Universe.
Almighty Allah said:
7: 55. Surely, your Lord is ALLAH, who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then HE settled Himself firmly on the Throne. HE makes the night cover the day, which it pursues swiftly, And HE created the sun and the moon and the stars - all made subservient by HIS command. Verily, HIS is the creation and the command. Blessed is ALLAH, Lord of the worlds. And in a different Verse (ayah) Allah said:
41: 10. Say, `Do you really disbelieve in HIM Who created the earth in two days ? And do you set up equals to HIM ?' That is the Lord of the worlds.
41: 11. HE placed therein firm mountains rising above its surface, and blessed it with abundance, and provided therein its foods in proper measure in FOUR days - alike for all seekers.
41: 12. Then HE turned to the heaven, while it was something like smoke, and said to it and to the earth; `Come ye both of you in obedience, willingly or unwillingly.' They said, `We come willingly.
In the first grouped Verses (ayahs), Almighty Allah confirmed his creation of Heavens and Earth in 6 days, and in the second grouped Verses (ayahs), Allah went further explaining how he came a bout creating the Earth. First, Allah created Earth in 2 days, then created the mountains and provided the food and everything else to make it livable in 2 days, and finally he created the heavens in 2 days. 2+2+2=6. Not 2+4+2=8. Note: Allah mentioned the 4 days, since he included the first two days in his figure. For clarification, This is a common expression in Arabia and the Middle East, where people say for example It takes me 20 days to get to Iraq, and 40 days to get to Iran ( means: 20 days to get to Iraq, and then from Iraq it takes another 20 days to get to Iran). They add 20 + 20 = 40, but they never add 20 + 40 = 60
God vs. God
Allah said: Whatever message WE abrogate or cause to be forgotten, WE bring one better than that or the like thereof. Knowest thou not that ALLAH has the power to do all that HE wills ? 2:107.
This Verse was in response to the Jews who questioned Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), on: How come Allah ordered you, Mohammad, to perform your daily prayer toward Jerusalem, and then he turns around and order you to switch toward Mecca? Immediately, Almighty Allah responded, by telling the disbelievers that this is his well, and he manages and directs things the way he sees it beneficial to us.
The same story happened at the begining of Islam, when Almighty Allah advised the Muslims not to drink Beer, since Beer is not good for our body. And Later on, Allah ordered them not to drink Beer, Period. This kind of transition is great and makes sense. People before Islam used to be addicted to Beer (Alcohol), but Allah didnt order them to quit drinking at once. Allah gave them time, so their body can get use to not accepting such poison, and once that happen, then Allah ordered all Muslims not to drink it, never again.
Allah said: The Word changes not before Me. 50:29. Tom Terry didnt show us the verses preceded this particular Verse, but I will. Allah said:
50: 20. And the trumpet shall be blown. That will be the Day of Promise.
50: 21. And every soul shall come forth and along with it there will be an angel to bear witness.
50: 22. Then WE shall say, `Thou wast heedless of this; now WE have removed from thee thy veil, and keen is thy sight this day.'
50: 23. And his companion will say, `This is what I have ready of his record.'
50: 24. WE shall say to his two companions, cast ye twain into Hell every disbelieving enemy of truth, 50: 25. Hinderer of good, transgressor, doubter;
50: 26. `Who sets up another god beside ALLAH, so do, ye twain, cast him into the severe torment.'
50: 27. His associate will say, `O Lord, it was not that I caused him to rebel; but he himself was too far gone in error.'
50: 28. ALLAH will say, `Quarrel not in MY presence; I gave you the warning beforehand,
50: 29. `The Word passed by ME cannot be changed, and I am not in the least unjust to MY servants.""
Almighty Allah describes to us what is going to happen in the Judgment Day. In Verse 50:29, Allah tells the disbeliever and his companion shitan that Allah will not go back on his promise, which can be found in Chapter (Sura) As-Sajdah 32-13, where Allah said:
And if WE had enforced Our will, WE could have given every soul its appropriate guidance, but the word from ME has come true that I will fill Hell with jinn and men all together. The promise as described in the preceding Verse, Allah will fill Hell with Jinn and Men all together. The Jinn and Men here, are both the disbeliever and his companion of Jinn shitan.
The Length of Days in Heaven
Tom Terry commented that how come Allah said:
He directed the ordinance from Heaven to the Earth, then it descended to him in a day, the measure of which is a Thousand years by your reckoning.32:5
Then Allah said: The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in a Day, the Span of which is fifty thousand years. 70:4.
Lets continue with the proceeding Verses: 70: 5. So be patient with admirable patience.
70: 6. They see it to be far off,
70: 7. But WE see it to be nigh.
70: 8. The day when the heaven will become like molten copper,
70: 9. And the mountains will become like flakes of wool,
70: 10. And a friend will not inquire after a friend,
In the first Verse, Almighty Allah was referring to the Angel Gabriel. It takes the Angel Gabriel One day to deliver orders from Heavens to Earth, in a Round Trip. This Day equals One Thousand Earthly years. While in the second Verse, Almighty Allah talks about another Day, Judgment Day, which equals to Fifty Thousand Earthly years.
Another solid proof that the Holy Quran is the Word of Almighty Allah, and disbelievers failed a gain to disprove a single word. NO BODY CAN CHALLENGE THE WORD OF ALLAH.
Final Note: Some might wonder, Is it really true that such Day can equal a Thousand Earthly years, and another Day can equal Fifty Thousand years?
Well! If you look at Planet Pluto, the 9th Planet in our Solar System, you'll notice the following facts:
** Planet Pluto is 2.6 Billion Miles from Planet Earth,
** One day on Planet Pluto equals 6 Earthly days,
** One Year on Planet Pluto equals 247.7 Earthly years.
This is only within our Solar System, so can you imagine the distance between Earth and other planets in another Solar Systems. Also, don't forget the fact that The Light Year, which is the distance the light travels for a period of one Earthly year, equals 5.878 Trillion Miles......This is the Universe of wonders, and its existance testifies that the Almighty Allah is Its and Only Creator.
