Answer to Tahir-ul-Qadri about his belief on Life and Death of Jesus a.s
The Ahmadi questioner had based his question on the following verses of the Holy Quran:
And when Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, ‘Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah?’”, he will answer, “Holy art Thou. I could never say that to which I had no right. If I had said it, Thou wouldst have surely known it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Thy mind. It is only Thou Who art the Knower of hidden things. I said nothing to them except that which Thou didst command me — ‘Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ And I was a witness over them as long as I remained among them, but since Thou didst cause me to die, Thou hast been the Watcher over them; and Thou art Witness over all things. (Al Quran 5:117-118)
Testimony of Jesus, may peace be on him, as quoted in the Holy Quran, in the hereafter, makes sense only if he is understood to be deceased and never comes back to this world. Otherwise, how can he feign ignorance to what present day Christians are doing? And how can he imply that he did not do anything to restore the Christians to perfect Monotheism? Once Jesus left this world, two thousand years ago, he is denying any further responsibility, which will not be true, if he were to come back, in person, as many Sunni Muslims, including Tahir Qadri, believe.
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, showed from 30 verses of the Holy Quran that Jesus, may peace be on him, is deceased and not alive.
Some of those materials will be linked here.
Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri (Urdu: محمد طاہر القادری) (born 19 February 1951) is a Pakistanipolitician, former law professor and Sufi Islamic scholar. He was a former professor of international constitutional law at the University of the Punjab. Qadri is also the founding chairman of Minhaj-ul-Quran International.
So far, I have listened to the first 31 minutes of this video and the learned professor has talked about every thing else, but, not about the relevant verses. A perfect example of beating around the bush, while during these 31 minutes, he has used the same accusation of ‘beating around the bush,’ against the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community, twice.
This half hour he has spent on a general rant against the Founder of Ahmadiyya Community, to create enough negativity among his followers, lest they begin to understand the verses of the Holy Quran, under discussion.
This gives me good confidence that Tahir Qadri will not have any thing worth while to say on the real subject, except for empty rhetoric, but, I will finish listening to whole of his presentation, shortly.
