When Sayyiduna ‘Isa felt that Jews will remain rigid in their unbelief and they will kill him, he addressed the people and said:
Who will be my helper towards Allah?
About twelve or nineteen companions replied:
According to the research of ‘Allamah Jalaluddin Suyuti , at that time the blessed age of Sayyiduna ‘Isa was 33 years and according to I
Allamah Zurqaani , at that time the blessed age of Sayyiduna ‘Isa was 120 years. Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti also became of the same opinion in the later days of his life.
(Iafseer Jamal ‘ala/ ]alalayn, vol. 1, pp. 427; part 3, Surah
Aal-e-‘Imran, Ayah 57)
When Tatyanoos did not come out of the home of Sayyiduna ‘Isa for a long time, Jews invaded the home. Allah transformed Tatyanoos into the appearance of Sayyiduna ‘Isa. Jews killed Tatyanoos assuming him to be Sayyiduna ‘Isa . After this, when the family members of Tatyanoos observed his dead body carefully, only his face was identical to that of Sayyiduna ‘Isa’s while rest of his body was of his own. His family members inquired that if the killed person was ‘Isa , then where was their Tatyanoos; and if that was Tatyanoos, where was ‘Isa ? This issue sparked so much that civil war broke about among the Jews and consequently, a lot of Jews were killed. Allah has described this event in the Holy Quran as follows:
And the disbelievers deceivingly planned (to assassinate ‘Isa), and Allah secretly planned their destruction; and Allah is the best in planning secretly. Remember, when Allah said, ‘O ‘Isa! I will let you reach your complete age, and will raise you towards Me, and purify you from the disbelievers and give your followers (believers) dominance (through sound proofs) over the disbelievers until the Day of Resurrection; then you will all return to Me, so I shall judge between you concerning the matter in which you dispute.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 3, Surah Aal-e-‘Imran, Ayah 54-55)
After Sayyiduna ‘Isa’s ascension towards the Heavens, Sayyidatuna Maryam lived for 6 years and then passed away.
It is mentioned in Bukhari and Muslim that Sayyiduna ‘Isa will descend on earth close to the Day of Judgement and will follow the Shari’ah of our Nabi Muhammad . He will kill Dajjaal and the pig, break the cross and after maintaining justice for seven years, he will pass away and will be buried in Madina-tul-Munawwarah under the Grand Green Dome. (Iafseer Jamal ‘ala/ Jalalayn, vol. 1, pp. 427; part 3, Surah Aal-e-‘Imran, Ayah 57)
Refuting the credo of the Christians, it has also been revealed in the Holy Quran:
And without doubt, they did not kill him. Rather, Allah raised him towards Himself, and Allah is Overpowering, All-Wise.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)J (Part 6, Surah An-Nisa, Ayah 157-158)
In the preceding Ayah, it is said:
Neither did they kill him nor crucify him, but for them a look-alike was created (his face resembling the face of ‘Isa).
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 6, Surah An-Nisa, Ayah 157)
To sum up, Sayyiduna ‘Isa was not killed by Jews but was ascended to the heavens by Allah . Anyone who believes that Sayyiduna ‘Isa was either killed or crucified as Christians believe; such person is an unbeliever as the Holy Quran mentions clearly that Sayyiduna ‘Isa was neither killed nor crucified.
