Pearl of Wisdom

'And if you cannot avoid partisanship, then let your partisanship be for virtuous qualities, Praiseworthy acts, and admirable matters with which the dignified and noble chiefs of the Arab households and the notables of the tribes distinguished themselves, such as attractive manners, great ambitions, momentous positions, and Praiseworthy feats. So be partisans of Praiseworthy characteristics like protection of one's neighbour, fulfilment of rights, obedience of good people, opposition to the haughty, adoption of virtue, abstention from intimidating others, shunning bloodshed, doing justice to people, suppressing anger, and avoiding corruption in the land.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]

Question : #511 Category: Holy Qur'an
Subject: Jesus (as) and the crucifixition
Question: I have a simple question,

[004:157] And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not.

The ayah says that the Jews said themselves that they killed the "messenger of Allah". So did the Jews know he was a Messenger? Because the Jews say they killed him because he was a false prophet.

Answer: In regards to this ayah, the Ulama / Scholars of Islam advocate that the Holy Quran does not mention that Jesus (pbuh) was substituted with another man as this contradicts Allah (swt) attribute of Adl/Justice.

In terms of the Arabic language, the translation to English has shown that there are a number of ways to interpret that ayah.

It's agreed among the Scholars that the ayah mentions that a likeness was made for them, but doesn't specify if its the likeness of Jesus (phub), the killing, the crucifixion or both killing and crucifixion.
