Rozabal – the Tomb of Jesus Christ(as)?

Rozabal – the Tomb of Jesus Christ(as)?

It is a commonly-held belief among Christians and Muslims that Jesus(as) rose to heaven, and that his body was never buried. However, recent media coverage has brought the attention of the world to the Rozabal Tomb in Kashmir, said to contain the body of one Yuz Asaf, a name supposedly adopted by Jesus(as) when he was in India. This has reignited widespread debate on this topic. Local tradition states that the entombed was a prophet of Ahl-al-Kitab, or People of the Book (traditionally Christians and Jews), and his name was ‘Isa – the Qur’anic name for Jesus(as).

The proposed burial-place of Jesus(as) in Srinagar, Kashmir, is known to the locals as Rozabal, meaning the ‘Honoured Tomb’. It is known as the tomb of this very Yuz Asaf. The word ‘Yuz’ stands for Yuzu (meaning Jesus), and ‘Asaf’ in Hebrew means gatherer, namely, one who was to collect the lost sheep of Israel. It is said that the Prophet Yuz Asaf arrived from Syria about two thousand years ago.

The question of the identity of Yuz Asaf, however, is a controversial issue. Is Yuz Asaf a name adopted by Jesus Christ(as) when in India? Could this be the tomb of Jesus Christ(as), or is Yuz Asaf as the current caretakers of the tomb have begun to insist, a Muslim saint with no connection to Jesus(as)?

Easter News Coverage

In Easter 2010, several international news organisations and mainstream newspapers around the world ran stories on the Rozabal Tomb in Srinagar, Kashmir. The articles all stated a large increase in the number of visitors to the tomb in Kashmir in recent times. The news organisations, which included the BBC1, The Times in Britain2 and The Times of India3, suggested that there were two main reasons for the increased interest. One is that the latest version of the Lonely Planet travel guide for Kashmir mentions the rumour of the Rozabal Tomb as ‘the Jesus tomb’, inspiring many curious travellers to visit. Secondly, a popular thriller, The Rozabal Line, the plot of which centres on the idea that Rozabal is the tomb of Jesus(as), has enjoyed success in recent months, especially within India4.

About the Book ...  Kanz al-Ummal

Read this hadith Online

"Aishah (God be pleased with her) said that, in his illness in which he died, the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: `Every year Gabriel used to repeat the Quran with me once, but this year he has done it twice. He has informed me that there is no prophet but he lives half as long as the one who preceded him. And he has told me that Jesus lived a hundred and twenty years, and I see that I am about to leave this world at sixty' " 
(Hajaj al-Kiramah, p.428; Kanz al-Ummal, vol. 6, p. 60, from Hazrat Fatima; and Mawahib al-Ladinya, vol. 1, p. 42).

The Tabrani says concerning this hadith: "Its narrations are reliable, and it is reported in a number of different versions". The hadith here leaves no room to doubt at all. It not only announces Jesus' death but gives his age as 120 years. And it is reported through at least three routes: from Aishah, Ibn Umar, and Fatima. This hadith is, therefore, sound and a very clear proof of Jesus' death.

ترجمہ:۔ حضرت نبی کریمﷺ نے فرمایا کہ یقینا  عیسیٰ ابن مریم 120 سال تک زندہ رہاتھا۔اور میں غالبا60 سال کی عمر کے سر پر کوچ کروں گا ۔
حضرت مسیح موعود علیہ السلام فرماتے ہیں:۔ طبرانی اور حاکم حضرت عائشہ سے روایت کرتے ہیں کہعیسیٰ ایک 
سو بیس برس تک زندہ رہا۔ اسی حدیث میں آنحضرت صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم فرماتے ہیں کہ عیسیٰ سے میری عمر آدھی ہے۔ اب ظاہر ہے کہ اگر حضرت عیسیٰ فوت نہیں ہوئے تو غالباً ہمارے نبی صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم بھی اب تک زندہ ہی ہوں گے۔‘‘

Death of Jesus (peace be on him) in Holy Quran and his descent in latter days

Jesus Was Jewish? That’s News to Many Christians

The fact is, Jesus was born into a family of practicing Jews dedicated to Judaism. As prescribed in the Torah, he was circumcised on the eighth day after his birth. Throughout his life he was thoroughly committed to Judaism, the Torah and Jewish practices. He prayed in synagogues and taught Torah to “multitudes” of fellow Jews. And John the Baptist only baptized Jews to purify them for the expected arrival of the Jewish Messiah. All this is stated clearly in the Gospels; Jane’s quote is not.
