بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL

The story of Adam vs. Iblis is narrated in the Qur’an as follows:

2.Surah Al-Baqarah (Verse 30)
وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةًۖ قَالُوا أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاءَ وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَۖ قَالَ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the Malā’ikah, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority (Khalifah).”

They said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?” He [Allah] said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know.”

Khalifah: successor, or generations of man, one following another.

The predecessor to Al-Insān (Adam/Adamite/Modern Man) on earth was another race of men (bashar), otherwise known as the Jinn, among whom was Iblees. The majority of them were wicked, and Allah destroyed them, all except a few.

When Allah announced to the Malā’ikah that He would establish a new succession (Khilāfah) on earth, the Malā’ikah recalled the corruption, the bloodshed and the disbelief of prior succession (Khilāfah) of the Jinn, and worried that history would repeat itself, even with this new and improved prototype, called Al-Insān.

Allah counters with

“Indeed, I know that which you do not know.”

Al-Insān (Modern Man) was created with a number of improvements over the prior version. These include the following:

1). Nature of Allah (Fitrah)

30.Surah Ar-Rūm (Verse 30)
فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًاۚ فِطْرَتَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي فَطَرَ النَّاسَ عَلَيْهَاۚ لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ اللَّهِۚ ذَٰلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

So direct your face toward the System (deen), inclining to truth, the fitrah (inherent nature) of Allah upon which He has created Al-Nās. No change should there be in the creation of Allah. That is the correct System, but most of Al-Nās does not know.

Note: ‘Al-Nās’ is a name used specifically for the Adamite Population and is not applied to the Jinn. The Jinn Population is referred to in the Qur’an using the word ‘Al-Jinnah’. See Surah 114, ayat 6 for an example:

114.Surah An-Nās (Verse 6)
مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَالنَّاسِ

From among the Jinn Population (min Al-Jinnati) and the Adamite Population (wa Al-Nāsi).”

2). Physical upgrades

76.Surah Al-‘Insān (Verse 28)
نَّحْنُ خَلَقْنَاهُمْ وَشَدَدْنَا أَسْرَهُمْۖ وَإِذَا شِئْنَا بَدَّلْنَا أَمْثَالَهُمْ تَبْدِيلًا

We have created them and strengthened ‘asra-hum’ (their forms, ligaments, joints, etc.), and when We will, We can change their likenesses with [complete] alteration.

3). Intelligence and learning capacity

Adam represented an advanced prototype of human being, one who exhibited a higher learning capacity and intelligence over the previous versions of humanity.

2.Surah Al-Baqarah (Verse 31)
وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ الْأَسْمَاءَ كُلَّهَا ثُمَّ عَرَضَهُمْ عَلَى الْمَلَائِكَةِ فَقَالَ أَنبِئُونِي بِأَسْمَاءِ هَٰؤُلَاءِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ

And He taught Adam the names – all of them. Then He showed them to the angels and said, “Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful.”

It is also clear in this ayat below that the learning capacity of Adam had exceeded that of the Malā’ikah.

2.Surah Al-Baqarah (Verse 32)
قَالُوا سُبْحَانَكَ لَا عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلَّا مَا عَلَّمْتَنَاۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ

They said, “Exalted are You; we have no knowledge except what You have taught us. Indeed, it is You who is the Knowing, the Wise.”

2.Surah Al-Baqarah (Verse 33)
قَالَ يَا آدَمُ أَنبِئْهُم بِأَسْمَائِهِمْۖ فَلَمَّا أَنبَأَهُم بِأَسْمَائِهِمْ قَالَ أَلَمْ أَقُل لَّكُمْ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ غَيْبَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَأَعْلَمُ مَا تُبْدُونَ وَمَا كُنتُمْ تَكْتُمُونَ

He said, “O Adam, inform them of their names.” And when he had informed them of their names, He said, “Did I not tell you that I know the unseen of the heavens and the earth? And I know what you reveal and what you have concealed.

Who were those among the Malā’ikah that were concealing something, and what were they concealing? The words

“…and what you have concealed.”

is directed towards a group as can be seen in the choice of words

“you (kuntum – plural) concealed (taktumūn – plural)”

in the plural sense. It is at this moment that Allah would test the loyalty of the Malā’ikah by commanding them to show complete subservience to Adam.

The Malā’ikah then divided into camps and a dispute ensued. Allah’s decision to install Adam as the Khaleefah on earth led to a revolt in the heavenly community:

38.Surah Şād (Verse 69)
مَا كَانَ لِيَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ بِالْمَلَإِ الْأَعْلَىٰ إِذْ يَخْتَصِمُونَ

I had no knowledge of the exalted assembly when they were disputing.

38.Surah Şād (Verse 70)
إِن يُوحَىٰ إِلَيَّ إِلَّا أَنَّمَا أَنَا نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ

It has not been revealed to me except that I am a clear warner.”

38.Surah Şād (Verse 71)
إِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي خَالِقٌ بَشَرًا مِّن طِينٍ

[So mention] when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I am going to create a human being from clay.

38.Surah Şād (Verse 72)
فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِي فَقَعُوا لَهُ سَاجِدِينَ

So when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My Rūh (spirit, animating life force), then lower yourselves, yielding to him.”

38.Surah Şād (Verse 73)
فَسَجَدَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ كُلُّهُمْ أَجْمَعُونَ

So the Malā’ikah yielded – all of them entirely,

38.Surah Şād (Verse 74)
إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ اسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ

Except Iblees; he was arrogant and became of those who disbelieved (Kāna min Al-Kāfireen).

Pause: Notice the following in the ayats above:

1). Allah addresses the Malā’ikah and commands them to yield to Adam.

2). Allah says they all yielded except Iblees, who was of the Jinn in terms of creation, but was also one of the Malā’ikah, which shows that the Malā’ikah are not a species of creation.

3). When Iblees refused, he became of those who disbelieved (min Al-Kāfireen). Who were those who disbelieved?

4). According to the Qur’an, the Malā’ikah represent a unique class (not species) of beings. Most likely from various walks of life and various species of creation. They do as they are commanded, but this is not due to a lack of free will, but rather out of fear of Allah:

66.Surah At-Taĥrīm (Verse 6)
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ

O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them but do what they are commanded.

16.Surah An-Naĥl (Verse 50)
يَخَافُونَ رَبَّهُم مِّن فَوْقِهِمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ۩

They fear their Lord above them, and they do what they are commanded.

Therefore, if a Malak is defined as a heavenly being, one who obeys Allah’s command without question, then Iblees and those with him disqualified themselves by disobeying a command from Allah:

18.Surah Al-Kahf (Verse 50)
وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ الْجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّهِۗ أَفَتَتَّخِذُونَهُ وَذُرِّيَّتَهُ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُونِي وَهُمْ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّۚ بِئْسَ لِلظَّالِمِينَ بَدَلًا

And [mention] when We said to the Malā’ikah, “Yield to Adam,” and they yielded, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn, thus he departed from the command of his Lord…

Iblees and those with him were then stripped of their positions, titles, and ranks, and were rendered as nothing more than merely Jinn. They were exiled from Paradise. These are what are referred to in the Bible as the Fallen Angels.

2.Surah Al-Baqarah (Verse 34)
وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ وَاسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ

And [mention] when We said to the Malā’ikah, “Yield before Adam”; so they yielded, except for Iblees. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers (kāna min Al-Kāfireen).

Again, Allah tells us through His choice of wording that there was a group of Malā’ikah, among whom was a Malak who later became known as Iblees, and that these Malā’ikah became disbelievers because of their refusal to yield to Adam.

As we mentioned in the previous chapter, the word ‘Al-Jinn’ is the plural of ‘Al-Jānn’. Thus, the Surah 18:50 is saying that there was a group of beings called the Jinns (Al-Jinn), they rebelled against Allah and Iblees was a leader among them. It is presumed that these Jinn were the righteous who survived the destruction of the Jinn prior to the creation of Adam, and we have discovered their remains from billions of years ago all across the world.

Allah then says:

“…Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange.” 18:50

The ayat above clearly depicts the Jinn as men with offspring and a lineage. The supernaturalists, those who believe the Jinn to be supernatural beings (spirits, aliens, etc.) have no way around this one. How does a human being take precaution against taking someone or something as an ally that either lives in outer space, in a parallel dimension, or is unseen with the exception of Allah who is unseen, yet omnipresent and omnipotent? These descendants of Iblees that Allah speaks of are human beings, not spirits, demons, etc.

Allah replaced the Jinn with Al-Ins

The Sunnah of Allah does not change:

33.Surah Al-‘Aĥzāb (Verse 62)
سُنَّةَ اللَّهِ فِي الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلُۖ وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلًا

[This is] the Sunnah (established way) of Allah with those who passed on before; and you will not find in the way of Allah any change.

If a people do not uphold their commitment to serve Allah, they will be replaced with another people who will happily serve Allah:

9.Surah At-Tawbah (Verse 39)
إِلَّا تَنفِرُوا يُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا وَيَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ وَلَا تَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئًاۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

If you do not go forth, He will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another people, and you will not harm Him at all. And Allah is over all things competent.

47.Surah Muĥammad (Verse 38)
هَا أَنتُمْ هَٰؤُلَاءِ تُدْعَوْنَ لِتُنفِقُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَمِنكُم مَّن يَبْخَلُۖ وَمَن يَبْخَلْ فَإِنَّمَا يَبْخَلُ عَن نَّفْسِهِۚ وَاللَّهُ الْغَنِيُّ وَأَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَاءُۚ وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوْا يَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَكُونُوا أَمْثَالَكُم

Here you are – those invited to spend in the cause of Allah – but among you are those who withhold. And whoever withholds only withholds from himself; and Allah is the Free of need, while you are the needy. And if you turn away, He will replace you with another people; then they will not be the likes of you.

So, Allah says to Iblees:

7.Surah Al-‘A`rāf (Verse 12)
قَالَ مَا مَنَعَكَ أَلَّا تَسْجُدَ إِذْ أَمَرْتُكَۖ قَالَ أَنَا خَيْرٌ مِّنْهُ خَلَقْتَنِي مِن نَّارٍ وَخَلَقْتَهُ مِن طِينٍ

He [Allah] said, “What prevented you from yielding when I commanded you?” he [Satan/Iblees] said, “I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay.”


Note: There are some who refuse to believe that Iblees was a Malak (often translated as angel).

Take a close look at the wording here:

He [Allah] said, “What prevented you from yielding when I commanded you?”

Who did Allah command to yield to Adam?

And [mention] when We said to the Malā’ikah, “Yield before Adam”

Do you still believe Iblees was not a Malak? Do you still believe that Malā’ikah are a species of creation?

In another ayat:

38.Surah Şād (Verse 76)
قَالَ أَنَا خَيْرٌ مِّنْهُۖ خَلَقْتَنِي مِن نَّارٍ وَخَلَقْتَهُ مِن طِينٍ

He said, “I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay.”

In another ayat:

17.Surah Al-‘Isrā’ (Verse 61)
وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ قَالَ أَأَسْجُدُ لِمَنْ خَلَقْتَ طِينًا

And [mention] when We said to the Malā’ikah, “Yield to Adam,” and they yielded, except for Iblees. He said, “Should I yield to one You created from clay?”

Further details are provided as to the nature of the clay.

Clay Like Pottery (Śalšālin ka-l-Fujjār):

55.Surah Ar-Raĥmān (Verse 14)
خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِن صَلْصَالٍ كَالْفَخَّارِ

He created man from clay like pottery.

Sticky Clay (Tīn Lāzim):

37.Surah Aş-Şāffāt (Verse 11)
فَاسْتَفْتِهِمْ أَهُمْ أَشَدُّ خَلْقًا أَم مَّنْ خَلَقْنَاۚ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاهُم مِّن طِينٍ لَّازِبٍ

Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], “Are they a stronger / more difficult creation or those [others] We have created?” Indeed, We created them [i.e., men] from sticky clay.

Altered Black Mud (Śalšālin min Hamā’in Masnūnin):

15.Surah Al-Ĥijr (Verse 28)
وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي خَالِقٌ بَشَرًا مِّن صَلْصَالٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ

And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the Malā’ikah, “I will create a human being (bashar) out of clay (min salsālin) from an altered black mud (min hamā’in masnūnin).

Allah questions Iblees’ refusal to yield to Adam:

15.Surah Al-Ĥijr (Verse 32)
قَالَ يَا إِبْلِيسُ مَا لَكَ أَلَّا تَكُونَ مَعَ السَّاجِدِينَ

[Allah] said, “O Iblees, what is [the matter] with you that you are not with those who yield?”

15.Surah Al-Ĥijr (Verse 33)
قَالَ لَمْ أَكُن لِّأَسْجُدَ لِبَشَرٍ خَلَقْتَهُ مِن صَلْصَالٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ

He said, “Never would I yield to a human (bashar) whom You created out of clay (min śalśālin) from an altered black mud (min hamā’in masnūnin).”

By now you are probably wondering how one story can be related in so many different ways? One ayat says that Adam was created from Tīn, another ayat says Śalśāl. One ayat says clay like pottery, another says Altered Black Mud. Which one is it? All of them, because these are all metaphors being used to describe something metaphysical, not physical.

In the metaphysical world, time and space are not factors like they are in the physical. Therefore, even the method of communication between beings is non-physical, in other words it is psychic communication where thoughts and emotions are conveyed as one and cannot be concealed. These are psychic communications where thoughts and emotions are relayed together as one message, thus all of these expressions are from the psychic communication, and the thoughts and emotions which were felt by some of the Malā’ikah were visible, in the open, plain to see.

The ayats above illustrate the first instance of blatant racism in the history of modern man (Al-Insān).

In the ayats above, Allah says that He created Adam from clay and Iblees from fire, but what kind of fire?

1). Scorching Fire (Nār As-Samūm), i.e. fire that scorches when in contact with something else.

15.Surah Al-Ĥijr (Verse 27)

وَالْجَانَّ خَلَقْنَاهُ مِن قَبْلُ مِن نَّارِ السَّمُومِ

And Al-Jānn (prototype), We created before from scorching fire (Nār As-Samūm).

The word As-Samūm (scorching) is also used here:

52.Surah Aţ-Ţūr (Verse 27)

فَمَنَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْنَا وَوَقَانَا عَذَابَ السَّمُومِ

So Allah conferred favor upon us and protected us from the punishment of the Scorching Fire (Nār As-Samūm).

56.Surah Al-Wāqi`ah (Verse 42)

فِي سَمُومٍ وَحَمِيمٍ

[They will be] in a Samūm (that which scorches something) and Hameem (that which is scalding).

scorch (skôrch)
v. scorched, scorch·ing, scorch·es
v.tr.
1. To burn superficially so as to discolor or damage the texture of. See Synonyms at burn1.
2. To wither or parch with intense heat.
3. To destroy (land and buildings) by or as if by fire so as to leave nothing salvageable to an enemy army.
4. To subject to severe censure; excoriate.
v.intr.
1. To become scorched or singed.
2. To go or move at a very fast, often excessively fast rate.
n.
1. A slight or surface burn.
2. A discoloration caused by heat.
3. Brown spotting on plant leaves caused by fungi, heat, or lack of water.
[Middle English scorchen, possibly of Scandinavian origin; akin to Old Norse skorpna, to shrink, be shriveled.]
scorching·ly adv.

In order for something to be scorching, it must come into contact with something and scorch it. What did the scorching fire come into contact with in the creation of the Jānn prototype? We will get to that, Allah willing.

2). The Smokeless Flame of Fire (Mārijin min Al-Nār), i.e. intense heat.

55.Surah Ar-Raĥmān (Verse 15)

وَخَلَقَ الْجَانَّ مِن مَّارِجٍ مِّن نَّارٍ

And He created Al-Jānn (prototype) from a smokeless flame (min Mārijin) of fire (min Nārin).

The word ‘Mārijan’ comes from Miim-Ra-Jiim = pasture, maraja = mixed (one thing with another), flow & flow freely (as separate entities), set forth, mariija = marred / spoiled / corrupted / impaired / disturbed / unsteady / confused.

50.Surah Qāf (Verse 5)
بَلْ كَذَّبُوا بِالْحَقِّ لَمَّا جَاءَهُمْ فَهُمْ فِي أَمْرٍ مَّرِيجٍ

But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition (mareejan).

In other words, Al-Jānn was created out of a substance that was scorched by intense, jumbled, free-flowing heat. What was the substance? Perhaps there is a clue in the Qur’an….?

28.Surah Al-Qaşaş (Verse 38)
وَقَالَ فِرْعَوْنُ يَا أَيُّهَا الْمَلَأُ مَا عَلِمْتُ لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَٰهٍ غَيْرِي فَأَوْقِدْ لِي يَا هَامَانُ عَلَى الطِّينِ فَاجْعَل لِّي صَرْحًا لَّعَلِّي أَطَّلِعُ إِلَىٰ إِلَٰهِ مُوسَىٰ وَإِنِّي لَأَظُنُّهُ مِنَ الْكَاذِبِينَ

And Pharaoh said, “O eminent ones, I have not known you to have a god other than me. Then ignite for me, O Haman, a fire upon the clay (‘alā Al-Tīn) and make for me a tower that I may look at the God of Moses. And indeed, I do think he is among the liars.”

TO ALLAH BELONGS ALL KNOWLEDGE!

The Truth About the Jinn – Chapter 3: Definitions of the Qur’anic Words ‘Al-Insan’ and ‘Al-Jann’

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Al-Insān (pl. Al-Ins) / Al-Nās vs. Al-Jānn (pl. Al-Jinn) / Al-Jinnah

This chapter will focus on the words in the Qur’an used to denote specifically the two races of mankind. This chapter will show how it is that so many Muslims were deceived into believing that the Jinn are a non-human species of creature, and how that view is not only incorrect, but also inconsistent with the Qur’an itself. Contrary to popular opinion, Al-Insān, Al-Ins, or Al-Nās refers to a specific group within mankind, Adams lineage. The real word for human/mankind is ‘Basharan’ / ‘Al-Bashar’. The words Al-Ins and Al-Jinn denote specific sub-races of human beings within humanity. It is safe to say that all people fall into one group or another, or constitute a third group, which is a combination of the two. I believe that most fall into the third category.

Al-Insān vs. Al-Jānn

Al-Insān is often translated as ‘man’, but in reality it does not refer to all of mankind. A better word would be ‘modern man’, Adamite, or left untranslated as a proper noun as a name of a race.

The meanings behind these two names actually give us insight to the nature of the two types of humans:

Al-Insān (pl. Al-Ins) and Al-Nās come from the root: Alif-Nun-Siin = to be or become sociable, companionable, conversable, inclined to company or conversation, friendly, amicable, or familiar. To be or become cheered, or gladdened or cheerful, gay, or gladsome. To be or become at ease, or tranquil; without shrinking or aversion.

Al-Jānn is often left untranslated or translated as the Jinn, even though the word ‘Al-Jinn’ is the plural form of Al-Jānn. Al-Jānn refers to the proto-type racial classification of a race of humans that predate Adam. In other words, Al-Jānn refers to prehistoric men.

Al-Jānn (pl. Al-Jinn) and Al-Jinnah come from the root: Jiim-Nun-Nun (root of jinn) = veiled/concealed/covered/hid/protected (e.g. cloth, armour, grave, shield), invisible, become dark/possessed, darkness of night, bereft of reason, mad/insane/unsound in mind/intellect, confusedness. Become thick/full-grown/blossom, herbage, garden. Spiritual beings that conceal themselves from the senses (including angels), become weak and abject, greater part of mankind, devil/demon, people who are peerless having no match or equal, a being who is highly potent, sometimes refers to Kings because they are concealed from the common folk.

In order to get a proper understanding, we will need to examine the ayats from the Qur’an to see how these words are used. This is the only way to undo the confusion caused by the lies and fabrications that have plagued the Muslim world for the last 1400 years, concealing the true identity and nature of the Jinn. One might wonder why this is so important? It may seem trivial, but in fact it is important because Allah has mentioned it many times in the Qur’an, and also because the enemies of Islam have gone far out of their way and beyond the call of duty to make sure that no one ever knows the truth about this until Judgment Day.

Al-Insān

Now, as we know, Allah created a human being (bashar) which he named Adam.

38.Surah Şād (Verse 71)
إِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي خَالِقٌ بَشَرًا مِّن طِينٍ

[So mention] when your Lord said to the Malā’ikah, “Indeed, I am going to create a human being (bashar) from clay.

In the ayat above, Allah says Adam is a human being (bashar), but in the ayat below he’s called Al-Insān.

15.Surah Al-Ĥijr (Verse 26)
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن صَلْصَالٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ

And We did certainly create man (Al-Insān) out of clay from an altered black mud.

Bashar vs. Al-Insān

The difference between the two words is that Bashar is applied to any and all humans, whether they came before or after Adam. Al-Insān is only applied to Adam and his lineage. Therefore, Adam was not only

1). Bashar / human by species

… but he was also

2). Al-Insān / modern man by race.

In terms of Iblis, he too is

1). Bashar / human by species

… but he was also

2). Al-Jānn / prehistoric man by race.

We know this because of the following reasons:

1). The word rajulun / rijālun is only applied to adult male human beings.

2). The Qur’an addresses both races, Al-Insān and Al-Jānn, while at the same time stating that the message of the Qur’an was intended exclusively for humans (Bashar).

3). Jinn is never shown in contrast to human beings (bashar) in the Qur’an.

Question: How did the Jinn manage to trick most people into thinking that the Jinn are non-human?

Answer: The Jinn managed to trick the masses into believing they are non-human by changing the meaning of the word ‘Al-Ins’ (plural of Al-Insān) to mean mankind, when in reality it refers to modern man, or the Adamites, not all of mankind. This places a huge question mark next to the identity of the Jinn, because we are never told what they are, just what they aren’t.

Here’s an example:

51.Surah Adh-Dhāriyāt (Verse 56)
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ

And I did not create the jinn (Al-Jinn) and mankind (Al-Ins) except to serve Me.

What this does is it tells the mind through logical deduction that the Jinn and Mankind must not be the same thing or else they would not constitute two separate groups, and that whatever it is that the Jinn are in reality must be something other than what is denoted by the name Mankind. Most people will quote this ayat in support of their theory that the Jinn are something other than human beings. However, once we uncover the true meaning of the word ‘Al-Ins’, and show that it in fact refers to a subgroup of humans, namely modern man, or Adamites then this argument falls completely apart. What we are left with is a comparison of two subgroups of man, not man vs. spirits, aliens, or whatever else they would like is to believe they are.

Al-Jānn

Al-Jānn is prehistoric / pre-Adamite man. This is a race of man that existed on earth prior to Adam.

Allah says:

15.Surah Al-Ĥijr (Verse 27)
وَالْجَانَّ خَلَقْنَاهُ مِن قَبْلُ مِن نَّارِ السَّمُومِ

And Al-Jānn, We created it before (Adam) from scorching fire (Nāri Al-Samūm).

Allah announced His intentions to the Malā’ikah to place Al-Insān, Adam and his lineage on earth as a successor to the Jinn who ruled prior:

2.Surah Al-Baqarah (Verse 30)
وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةًۖ قَالُوا أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاءَ وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَۖ قَالَ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

And when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority (khalīfah).”

They (the Malā’ikah) said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption (yu-fsidu) therein (fee-hā) and sheds (wa ya-sfiku) blood (Al-Damā), while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?” He [Allah] said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know.”

The Truth About the Jinn – Chapter 1: Definitions of the Qur’anic Word ‘Bashar’

In the Name of Most Gracious, Most Merciful, Allah.

Bashar / Al-Bashar (بشر / البشر)

This chapter will focus on the real word for Human/Mankind in the Qur’an which, contrary to popular opinion, is not Al-Insān, Al-Ins, or Al-Nās. The real word for human/mankind is ‘Basharan’ / ‘Al-Bashar’.

Ba-Shiin-Ra = Skin / Pare / Strip / Skin Contact / Epidermis (or insides) Complexion / Hue-> Delicacy, fineness of Beauty / Elegance of form / Bright cheerful countenance, Rejoiced / Rejoicing / Good, good tidings, glad tidings / Announcements (bearer of), proclaiming, commencement, beginnings of anything / Indications / Streaks (daylight breaking, wind over land) Conducting, managing affairs personally. Lie with, to go in unto. Mankind, Human beings, Lowest /basest / meanest sort of people, Perfect man (combining gentleness with strength).

Adam

15:28 And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the Malā’ikah/Angels, “I will create a human being (Basharan) out of clay from an altered black mud.

Prophet Muhammad

18:11 Say, “I am only ‘Bashar’ like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord – let him do righteous work and not associate in the service of his Lord anyone.”

All Prophets / Messengers and the People they were sent to were Bashar/Human

14:11 Their messengers said to them, “We are only ‘Bashar’ like you, but Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of His servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah . And upon Allah let the believers rely.

17:94 And what prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them except that they said, “Has Allah sent a Bashar/Human as messenger?”

26:154 “You are but only Bashar/Human like us. Then bring us a sign if you are of the truthful.”

26:186 “You are only Bashar/Human like us and verily, we think that you are one of the liars!

“The Spirit” visits Mary in the form of a bashar/human being

19:17 And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Spirit (Ruh), and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned human being / basharan sawiyyan

The Qur’an contains warnings and reminders for Al-Bashar/Humanity.

74:31 And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity (Al-Bashar)

74:36 As a warning to humanity (Al-Bashar)

Allah says He dispersed Bashar throughout the Earth

30:20 And of His signs is that He created you from dust; then, suddenly you were Bashar dispersing

Allah gave only Bashar the Scripture, Authority, and Prophethood

3:7 It is not acceptable for a human/bashar that Allah should give him the Scripture and Authority and Prophethood and then he would say to the people, “Be servants to me rather than Allah ,” but [instead, he would say], “Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied.”

42:53 And it is not for any Bashar that Allah should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a partition or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills. Indeed, He is Most High and Wise.

Bashar vs. Malak

12:31 … And when they saw him, they greatly admired him and cut their hands and said, “Perfect is Allah ! This is not a Bashar; this is none but a noble Malak.”

17:94 And what prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them except that they said, “Has Allah sent a Bashar-Messenger?”

17:95 Say, “If there were upon the earth Malā’ikah walking securely, We would have sent down to them from the heaven a Malak-Messenger (Malikan-Rasūlan).”

Note: If the word Al-Jinn referred to a non-human species of creature, then Allah would have sent down to earth a messenger who was a Jinn, specifically for the Jinn, from among themselves. However, since Allah has already made it clear to us (3:7, 42:53) that the only species to receive Scripture, Authority, and Prophecy are Bashar, then that would mean that in order for the Qur’an to apply to the Jinn, they must also be Bashar, or else the Torah, Injeel, and the Qur’an would not have been directed towards them.

46.Surah Al-‘Aĥqāf (Verse 29)
وَإِذْ صَرَفْنَا إِلَيْكَ نَفَرًا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ يَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقُرْآنَ فَلَمَّا حَضَرُوهُ قَالُوا أَنصِتُواۖ فَلَمَّا قُضِيَ وَلَّوْا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِم مُّنذِرِينَ

And [mention, O Muhammad], when We directed to you a few of the jinn, listening to the Qur’an. And when they attended it, they said, “Listen attentively.”And when it was concluded, they went back to their people as warners.

46.Surah Al-‘Aĥqāf (Verse 30)
قَالُوا يَا قَوْمَنَا إِنَّا سَمِعْنَا كِتَابًا أُنزِلَ مِن بَعْدِ مُوسَىٰ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْحَقِّ وَإِلَىٰ طَرِيقٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

They said, “O our people, indeed we have heard a [recited] Book revealed after Moses confirming what was before it which guides to the truth and to a straight path.

46.Surah Al-‘Aĥqāf (Verse 31)
يَا قَوْمَنَا أَجِيبُوا دَاعِيَ اللَّهِ وَآمِنُوا بِهِ يَغْفِرْ لَكُم مِّن ذُنُوبِكُمْ وَيُجِرْكُم مِّنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ

O our people, respond to the Caller [i.e., Messenger] of Allah and believe in him; He [i.e., Allah] will forgive for you your sins and protect you from a painful punishment.

Bashar (Humans) are made from water

25:54 And it is He who has created from water a Bashar being and made him into a lineage and marriage. And ever is your Lord competent

Bashar (Humans) are made from dust

30:20 And of His signs is that He created you from dust; then, suddenly you were human beings (Bashar) dispersing

A Question for the Supernaturalists

Allah says:

And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the differences in YOUR languages and colors. Verily, in that are indeed signs for men of sound knowledge. [30:22]

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ مَنَامُكُمْ بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَابْتِغَاؤُكُمْ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَسْمَعُونَ

Quesion: Who is the word “YOUR” referring to in the ayat above?

Let’s examine the context. If we go a few ayats back to look at the context, you will see who Allah is addressing here:

30.Surah Ar-Rūm (Verse 20)
وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَكُم مِّن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ إِذَا أَنتُم بَشَرٌ تَنتَشِرُونَ

And of His signs is that He created YOU from dust; then, suddenly YOU were…

==> human beings (Basharan) <== dispersing

Note: Notice, the words Al-Insān, Al-Ins, and Al-Nās or any other word that is normally used to refer to Adam’s lineage specifically is not mentioned here.

Allah sent down the Qur’an for all of mankind, which includes the Adamite and non-Adamite (Jinn) races. Since both the Prophet and the Qur’an were sent to warn the Al-Ins and Al-Jinn, then it is only logical that the words ‘YOU’ and ‘YOUR’ in these ayats are intended for any and every human being who may happen to read or come into contact with the Qur’an, except where Allah addresses a specific group.

In other words, Allah sent the Qur’an down to the Prophet so that he could call all of people of the world to abandon religions and return back to the System and Order (Deen) of Allah as His Honored Servants. All throughout the Qur’an we see how Allah addresses the Ins and the Jinn together. As a matter of fact, as a clue, Allah even revealed Surah Al-Rahmān in a way which clearly shows Allah addressing two distinct groups of people throughout the entire chapter.

55.Surah Ar-Raĥmān (Verse 14)
خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِن صَلْصَالٍ كَالْفَخَّارِ

He created Al-Insān from clay like pottery.

55.Surah Ar-Raĥmān (Verse 15)
وَخَلَقَ الْجَانَّ مِن مَّارِجٍ مِّن نَّارٍ

And He created Al-Jānn from a smokeless flame of fire.

55.Surah Ar-Raĥmān (Verse 16)
فَبِأَيِّ آلَاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ

So which of the favors of your Lord (Rabba-kumā) would you deny (tu-kadh-dhibān)?

The appendages ‘-kumā‘ (Rabba-kumā) and ‘-ān‘ (tu-kadh-dhibān) are expressions of duality.

There are two, count ’em, two races of humans on earth. I will show you.

In the ayat above, Allah addresses the target audiences (Jinn and Ins) using the words ‘YOU’ and ‘YOUR’, clearly addressing whoever happens to hear the message. This would mean that the Jinn are Bashar, or else it would be like saying that the Qur’an was not revealed in its entirety for them, just certain parts. If that is the case, why would Allah reveal such a book that could not be applied by anyone who in search of guidance and the Straight Path.

In the very same ayat, He addresses the exact same people (Ins and Jinn) same target audience as before, calling them ‘Bashar”, meaning human being. We also see the command from Allah to the Prophet, telling him to say: “I am a human being (Bashar) like you.”

Basharan is the Qur’anic word for human being. It’s a general label for all humans, regardless of whether or not they came from Adam. When Allah addresses the Adamites specifically, He addresses them by the following names:

1). Al-Insān, pl. Al-Ins

2). Al-Nās

3). Bani Adam

The names above denote a race of man within humanity. Bashar is a name for all humans, whether they came from Adam or not. The names above do not mean human.

Question: If Adam was the first and only human being and all humans came from him than why does Allah have one word for humans as a whole, and another word to denote a specific race of man within humanity?

Conclusion

The above ayats tell us that the word ‘Bashar’ used in the Qur’an denotes a human being living on Earth. There is no mention of the word Bashar outside of Earth except when Allah mentions His intention to create a ‘Bashar’, Adam, to serve Allah as His representative on Earth and the Successor to the former peoples (Al-Awwaleen). Bashar have physical bodies made from Earth elements such as dirt/dust (Turab) and water (Mā). They procreate through sex. The word Bashar is used in reference to all people whether male, female, child, or adult. It is also not an exclusive title of Adam or his Progeny.

All Prophets were commanded to announce themselves as “Bashar (Human) like you”. The People who the Prophets were sent to were also called Bashar. There were people who rejected their Prophets, calling them “Human Beings (Bashar) like us”. The Qur’an was sent containing warnings for Humanity (Al-Bashar).

There is no mention in the Qur’an of any beings outside human beings who are referred to as Al-Ins and Al-Jinn to whom were sent Bashar messengers.

17:95 Say, “If there were upon the earth angels walking securely, We would have sent down to them from the heaven an angel [as a] messenger.”

The Truth About the Jinn – Chapter 2: Definitions of the Qur’anic Word ‘Rajul’ (pl. Rijaal)

In the Name of the Most Gracious, Most Merciful, Allah

Rajulun / Rijāl (رجل / رجال)

In the previous chapter, we went over the Qur’anic definition of a human being (Bashar). Now, we will go over another word, the word which Allah uses in the Qur’an to describe an adult male human; ‘Rajulun’. Never will you find the word ‘Bashar’ in the Qur’an specifically used in reference to the Jinn. This is where pure logic comes in to help us dig deeper and find the clues that Allah has buried in the Qur’an, leaving it only accessible to the people of intellect (‘aql). In the Qur’an, we find a word that is used to describe both Al-Ins and Al-Jinn, thus showing us that they do indeed have some similar traits, and that the Jinn are in fact human.

Allah says:

72:6 And there were men (Rijāl) from Al-Ins (Adamites) who sought refuge in men (Rijāl) from the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden.

What we can conclude from this ayat:

1). Jinn and Ins have men (Rijāl) among them.

2). The men from amongst the Ins (Adamite) sought refuge in the men from the Jinn (Iblisites) and it only lead them to their downfall.

The next step is to define the word ‘Rajul/Rijāl’ based on its usage in the Qur’an, but first, here is a dictionary definition:

Ra-Jiim-Lam = to go on foot, urge with foot, walk, tie by the feet, let (a female) suckle her young, be curly (hair), set free with his mother. rajjala – to comfort anyone, comb the hair, grant a respite. tarajjala – to go down without rope. rijlatun – vigour in walking. rijlun – foot, soldiers, good walker, tramp. arajil – hunters, pedestrian. rajulun – male human being, man, a person with heir. rajilun – foot, footmen (slow walkers). rijlain – two feet. arjul (pl.) – feet.

Source: Study Qur’an

According to the definition above, the word Rajul is used to refer to the following:

1). Adult male human beings exclusively

2). Stands on two feet, walks on two feet, pedestrian

3). Having hair

4). Having heir (ability to reproduce human beings)

5). Never used for non-human entities, such as angels unless they take on the form of a Bashar.

Qur’anic Usage of the Word ‘Rajul (pl. Rijāl)’

1). Men (rijāl) exist alongside other human beings, such as women, children, parents, and relatives:

4:7 For men (rijāl) is a share of what the parents (Al-Wālidān) and close relatives (Al-Aqrabūn) leave, and for women (Al-Nisā) is a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, be it little or much – an obligatory share.

2). All Prophets / Messengers were men (rijāl):

12:109 And We sent not before you [as messengers] except men (rijāl) to whom We revealed from among the people of cities….

16:43 and 21:7 And We sent not before you except men (rijāl) to whom We revealed …

3). Angels (Malā’ikah) are disguised as men (rijāl) when they descend to earth

6:8-9 And they say, “Why was there not sent down to him an angel?” But if We had sent down an angel, the matter would have been decided; then they would not be reprieved. And if We had made him an angel, We would have made him a man (rajul), and We would have confounded them with that in which they confound themselves.

Adamite and Jinn adult males are Rijāl, Rijāl = Men, Men = Bashar/Human

Those who would have us believe that the Jinns are supernatural beings have much difficulty explaining how they are spirits, aliens, reptilians and such, when Allah clearly uses the word man (rajul) / men (rijāl), the same word used exclusively for human beings, when describing the Jinn. Therefore, we must conclude that since Allah is using this word to describe the Jinn, then the word me be just as applicable to them as with any other humans, along with all of its connotations. In other words, the word ‘rijāl’ when used in reference to the Jinn means that the Jinn are no more than mortal human beings on earth, with the only difference being that they descended though the line of Iblis.

Jesus / Isa died a natural death according to the Qur’an

According to the Qur’an, Jesus is dead?

by Jamil McCant

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Many Muslims as well as Christians all anticipate the Second Coming of Christ, who is said to return to clear up misconceptions about his ‘Divinity’ and whether or not he died on the cross. It is also reported that he will proclaim Islam as the True Religion by allying himself alongside Imam Mahdi, a savior who is expected to appear before the end of time and cleanse the world of corruption and bring victory to the Muslims on Earth, as well as create a New Islamic World Order comparable to that of King Solomon and Dhul Qarnayn. How is it that an event so grand has not been mentioned even once in the Qur’an? Does not Allah say that the Qur’an is Fully-Detailed?

The Quran is sufficiently detailed by Allah the Most Wise, and it reminds us of this aspect repeatedly (6:19,38,55,97,114-116,119,126; 7:32,52,174; 9:11; 10:5,24,37; 11:1; 12:111; 13:2; 17:12; 30:28; 41:3; 41:44; 79:19).

As we will show, none of this is mentioned in the Qur’an, as it is only found in Hadith. Not only that, but it actually contradicts the Qur’an. We will also show how the Qur’an has been brought under Hadith Compliance by interpreters and translators by translating/interpreting the ayats in such a way that it would make it appear to agree with the Hadith, rather than dismissing them as forgeries.

Many false Hadith, referred to as ‘Al-Isra’iliyyaat, which are forgeries by Christian and Jewish converts to Islam cropped up a few hundred years after the death of the Final Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (as). This story is more than likely based on one of those Hadith.

Allah says:

5:116 And Allah will say: “O Jesus, son of Mary, did you tell the people to take you and your mother as gods other than Allah?” He said: “Glory to you, I cannot say what I have no right of. If I had said it then You know it, You know what is in my self while I do not know what is in Your self. You are the Knower of the unseen.”

5:117 “I only said to them what You commanded me to say, that you shall serve Allah my Lord and your Lord; and I was witness over them as long as I was with them, –>BUT WHEN YOU TERMINATED MY LIFE<–, You were watcher over them. You are witness over all things.”

** This word (tawaffaytani) in Surah Al-Ma’idah 116-117 literally means “You caused me to die”, but is translated as “You raised me up” because it is being interpreted based on hadiths that state that Isa (AS) is still alive and will be returning at the end of time to proclaim Islam as the true religion. **

Allah says in Qur’an that the Jews neither killed or crucified Isa (AS):

4:157 And for claiming that they killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of God. In fact, –>THEY NEVER KILLED HIM, THEY NEVER CRUCIFIED HIM – they were made to think that they did. All factions who are disputing in this matter are full of doubt concerning this issue. They possess no knowledge; they only conjecture. For certain, they never killed him.*

** The ayat says the did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but it does not say he never died. Because of the ways these ayats have been translated/interpreted them in light of forged hadith, many people believe that Jesus (AS) is alive, and they ignore the ayats where Allah clearly states that Jesus (AS) is dead and that Allah is the one who made him die. **

See the ways this word is used in Qur’an according to the Concordance of Qur’an on Quran.com

وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُتَوَفَّىٰ مِنْ قَبْلُ وَلِتَبْلُغُوا أَجَلًا مُسَمًّى وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

(40:77:12) natawaffayannaka
We cause you to die
فَإِمَّا نُرِيَنَّكَ بَعْضَ الَّذِي نَعِدُهُمْ أَوْ نَتَوَفَّيَنَّكَ فَإِلَيْنَا يُرْجَعُونَ

(47:27:3) tawaffathumu
take them in death
فَكَيْفَ إِذَا تَوَفَّتْهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ يَضْرِبُونَ وُجُوهَهُمْ وَأَدْبَارَهُمْ

In another ayat:

3:55 For Allah said: “O Jesus, –>I WILL TERMINATE YOUR LIFE<–, and RAISE YOU TO ME, and cleanse you of those who have rejected, and make those who have followed you above those who have rejected until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, all of you, so I will judge between you in what it was that you disputed.”

This word (mutawaffeeka) is only used once in Qur’an. It is translated in many translations as “I will take you”, even though it comes from the same root (“tawaffaa”, cause to die) as ‘tawaffaytanee” (You caused me to die).

Active participle (form V)
(3:55:6) mutawaffīka
(will) take you (really means “will take your soul, cause death to become you”)
إِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَىٰ إِنِّي مُتَوَفِّيكَ وَرَافِعُكَ إِلَيَّ

Allah says that the Messengers that came before the Prophet Muhammad (AS) have passed away:

3:144 And Muhammed is but a messenger, the messengers who came before him have long since passed away. If he dies or is killed will you turn back on your heels? And whoever turns back on his heels, he will not harm Allah in the least. And Allah will recompense the thankful.

Allah says Jesus and Mary USED TO eat food:

5:75 The Messiah, son of Mary, is no more than a messenger; the messengers who came before him have long since passed away; and his mother was trustworthy, they USED TO eat the food. See how We clarify the signs for them, then see how they deviate.

** This can be viewed as a refutation to those who ascribed divinity to Jesus and Mary and claimed they were partners alongside Allah. They ate food, which means they relied upon the provisions of Allah. This would refute the claim of their divinity. Allah says that they USED TO eat food, meaning they no longer do. **

Allah says that all messengers were mortal men who relied on food:

21:7 And We did not send before you except men whom We inspired
to. So ask the people of the Reminder if you do not know.

21:8 And We did not make for them bodies that do not need to eat, nor were they immortal.

** We can conclude that if Jesus is still alive in his body, he would need to eat food in order to survive. Allah says he and his mother no longer eat food. This is an indicator that neither are no longer alive in their physical bodies, which cannot leave the physical plane, but must return to the earth. **

Do dead people come back to life?

23:99 Until death comes to one of them, he says: “My Lord, send me back.”

23:100 “So that I may do good in what I have left behind.” No, it is but a word he is speaking. There is a barrier to prevent them from going back until the day they are all resurrected.*

23:101 So when the horn is blown, then there will be no kinship between them on that day, nor will they ask for one another.

** Allah clearly states here that when we die, we do not come back here to this physical plane, nor do we have power to interact with the physical world. Jesus returning from the dead would be reincarnation (Tanasukh), which is counter to Islamic belief. That’s another reason why proponents of the Return of Jesus say he was raised alive to Heaven. We have already proven this to be false **

Jesus on the Day of Judgment:

5:116 And Allah will say: “O Jesus, son of Mary, did you tell the people to take you and your mother as Allahs other than Allah?” He said: “Glory to you, I cannot say what I have no right of. If I had said it then You know it, You know what is in my self while I do not know what is in Your self. You are the Knower of the unseen.”

5:117 “I only said to them what You commanded me to say, that you shall serve Allah my Lord and your Lord; and I was witness over them as long as I was with them, –>BUT WHEN YOU TERMINATED MY LIFE<–, You were watcher over them. You are witness over all things.”

** The story of Jesus on Earth seems to pretty much end there with no mention of returning to Earth. The story picks up on the Day of Judgment when he is being questioned by Allah as to whether he told the people to worship him and his mother Mary, which he strongly denies. He also says he did not witness what took place afterwards, which is another indication that he indeed died and passed through the one-way barrier known as ‘Barzakh’, remaining there until the Day of Judgment. **

3:55 For Allah said: “O Jesus, –>I WILL TERMINATE YOUR LIFE<–, and RAISE YOU TO ME, and cleanse you of those who have rejected, and make those who have followed you above those who have rejected until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, all of you, so I will judge between you in what it was that you disputed.”

** This would have been a perfect time for Allah to announce the return of Jesus to the world, but He does not. Allah also says He will make those who followed him above those who have rejected until the Day of Resurrection. ‘Those who followed him’ could never refer to those who deified Jesus and his Mother, rather this could only refer to the Muslims who followed him at that time and those who believed in the Message of the Qur’an. as Muslims we do not make distinctions between the Messengers of Allah. Their message is one and the same and those who follow the Qur’an are indeed followers of the same teachings preached by Jesus.

There is no mention of a return of Jesus to the world to straighten things out among the Christians. To say otherwise would suggest that sending the Final Prophet and the Qur’an, which is referred to by Allah as the Clarifiying Book would not have been enough to guide people to the straight path. Rather, Christians would need a Prophet from 2,000 or so years prior to come back on the clouds in order to convince them. Why not bring back all the Prophets in that case?

The case of the Christians was closed when Allah did “Tawaffaa” to Jesus and brought the Final Prophet with the Qur’an explaining the truth of the matter. Those who fell into dispute over the reality of Jesus will have a tough choice to make; they can either accept the Word of Allah and the Truth of the Qur’an, or wait to have it all sorted out on the Day of Judgment when it’s too late. **

This is just my humble observation. My opinion is not to be followed. Follow the Qur’an and the Guidance of Allah! Everything I said that is accurate and true is from Allah, and any mistakes are mine. And Allah Knows Best! **
