The Death and Crucifixion of Jesus in the Quran

The Quran expresses the Following:

“Waqawlihim inna qatlna al Massih Issa ibn Maryam rasul Allah, wama qataluhu wama salabuhu walaken shubbiha lahum”, Quran 4: 158. Deciphered: ‘and their expression, we murdered the Messiah, Jesus, child of Mary, the Messenger of Allah; while they slew him not nor killed him, yet he was made to appear to them like the one executed (M. Sher Ali’s interpretation).

On this section, Muslim pundit Abdullah Yusuf Ali delivers the accompanying clarification:


Torturous killing was verified first among the Persians. The Greeks and the Carthaginians, from whom the Romans adjusted the training, later utilized it. In the Old Testament, the cadavers of blasphemers or misguided worshipers rebuffed by stoning may be hanged as additional mortification (Deut. 21: 23).

Execution was presented in Palestine during the Greek time. Josephus, the Jewish student of history (A.D. 37-100), reveals to us that the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes executed those Jews who denied Hellenization. The Emperor Constantine, annulled the training in reverence to Christian conviction concerning Jesus’ demise.

Jesus torturous killing is related in Matt. 27, Mark 15, Luke 23, John 19, and commonly alluded to somewhere else in the New Testament. The impact of early Christian writing regarding this matter and others is spread everywhere on the Qur’an. Ali’s critique with respect to Christian and Gnostic writing is only one illustration of that impact.

Execution was a type of the death penalty. It included public disgrace to the individual being killed. The sentenced must be deprived of all his apparel; he was truly tormented, and was made to convey his go across along the public streets to the execution ground; at that point he was fastened to the cross, and was the object of insults and outrages from passers-by. Passing by execution brought the denounced into a public unsavoriness.

Execution gave an obstruction in the ensuing exertion to change the Jews over to Christianity. The Jews were not set up to acknowledge the possibility that the Messiah, whose coming is recommended in the Old Testament, ought to be killed. To a large number of them, a particularly thought was viewed as a sacrilege. That was presumably the prospect of the Muslim people group, who presented the Hadith convention.

However, in spite of the Hadith understanding of the Qur’anic stanza, and as opposed to the interpretation referenced above, and to the wrong translation delivered by Abdullah Yussuf Ali, the Qur’an doesn’t keep the passing and Crucifixion from getting Jesus, the Messiah. Truth be told the Aramaic language of the Qur’an is indistinguishable from the narrative of Crucifixion referenced in the New Testament.
