Ahmadi Muslims hold the unique belief that Jesus (peace be upon him) survived the crucifixion and travelled towards India to continue his ministry among the Lost Tribes of Israel. Furthermore, they claim that his tomb, containing his body, has been recently re-discovered in India where it can be seen to this day. Ahmadi Muslims also assert that this belief is not only upheld by the Holy Quran and the Sayings of Muhammad saw, but even by the Holy Bible itself.

Holy Bible on the Mission of JESUS


 Subject of the Second Coming of Jesus is so important not only to the Christians but for the Muslims as well. For the benefit of the readers, as a Muslim, I need to expose some truths from the vary sayings of the Holy Bible so that they should know what really happened. It is evident from the Holy Bible that the moving prayers of Jesus on the night before the day of crucifixion
(Matt 26:39; Luke 22:42; Mark 14:36; Matt 27:46) had been the main source for his escape from the accursed death on the cross. For it is utterly unbelievable hat such earnest prayers from no less a personage than Jesus Christ should go unanswered. It is also evident from the Bible that Jesus did not die on the cross, but was taken down in a state of unconsciousness and had lived afterward to complete his mission eventually to die a natural death.After his escape from the death on the cross, he was in his body of clay (John 20:15; Luke 24:39-43) and it is incorrect to say that a vapor cloud lifted him up to heaven.No cloud has the power to raise a body of clay; no mortal can soar to heaven. To say that Jesus ascended to heaven with his mortal body is absolutely contrary to the sayings of Jesus, for he said: "No man hath ascended up to heaven but he that came down from heaven, the Son of man" (John 3:13). It is also clear from the New Testament that the accounts of both Mathew and John support this theory very strongly that Jesus did not ascend to heaven but migrated to another country,whilst both (Mark and Luke) are silent regarding the ascension. Jesus, peace be on him, was not sent as a Universal Guide. Jesus was the Messiah of the Israelites, and he proclaimed in clear-cut words: "I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel" (Matt 15:24). The term"lost" can be taken in two ways, literal and
metaphorical. It can therefore be applied to the lost tribes metaphorically, but literally as well. For centuries, they had been away from the Holy Land. No wonder, Jesus enjoined his disciples to
"Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel" (Matt 10:6). Jesus even foretold that he would go in search of those who were lost from the Israelites and would find them.He says "And other sheep I have which are not of this fold, them also I must bring and they shall hear my voice" (John 10:16). As, according to his afore said statement he was sent to the Israelites only, these other sheep, not belonging to the Palestinian Jews therefore were from the lost ten tribes dispersed in other countries. A similar conclusion can be drawn from another saying of Jesus: "A prophet is not without honor save in his own country" (Matt 13:57).

To believe, therefore, that Jesus did not go to another country where he was honored, is tantamount to believing that he passed away without honor. His saying, that his case, in view of the plot of his enemies to destroy him, would be similar to the case of the prophet Jonah, also reveals that as Jonah was honored by his people after he had been in the belly of the whale, likewise Jesus would be honored by the lost sheep of the House of Israel after he had been in the heart of the earth, i.e. hewn chamber serving for a tomb. And so it happened. He went to other countries where the lost sheep lived and was hallowed by them. The story of the wise men from the East who visited Palestine at
the birth of Jesus (who evidently were Israelites, because no nation besides them expected the appearance of the Messiah and because of their saying, "Where is he that is born King of the Jews?") contained a hint that Jesus would be honored by those sheep who were living in the Eastern countries. Jesus also mentioned a parable which hinted at the same. He said:
"What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountain, and go in search of the one that went astray?. And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray"
(Matt 18:12,13).
If it is true what this parable contains, if it is true that Jesus was a good shepherd, if it is true that the ten tribes of Israel were lost and were scattered abroad by foreign powers as divine punishment for
their turning away from the right path, and if it is true that he was sent to the lost sheep of the House of Israel, then it was,undoubtedly, his foremost duty to go in search of these lost sheep of the House of Israel and rejoice after finding them. Jesus, as we believe, a true prophet and beloved of God, could not neglect the duty imposed upon him by God. When he saw that the Palestinian Jews were not going to accept him, he left the country and went in search of the lost sheep, who were not of the fold of the Palestinian Jews. Historical investigations reveal to us that the people of Kashmir, India, Afghanistan and the surrounding provinces represent the ten lost tribes of Israel. Therefore Jesus must have gone to that part of the world.
