Not Taught Qur’an or Ahadith

Not Taught Qur’an or Ahadith

 

Another proof from the Holy Qur’an in regards to the death of Isaas is that the Qur’an shows us that Allah Taught him the book and the wisdom and the taurah and the injeel. No where is the Qur’an or ahadith mentioned. It is obvious that our ummah would not need a messiah who does not know the Qur’an and ahadith nor is taught these beautiful sources by Allah.

 

وَيُعَلِّمُهُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَالتَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنْجِيلَ {49}

And He will teach him the Book and the Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel (Chapter 3 Verse 49) .

Similar has been said in regards to Isaas in Chapter 5 verse 111 which is a conversation that takes place on qiyamah. This shows us clearly that Isaas did not return to learn the Qur’an as on qiyamah Allah Makes it clear that he was not taught the Qur’an nor the ahadith. Allah States:

إِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ اذْكُرْ نِعْمَتِي عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَىٰ وَالِدَتِكَ إِذْ أَيَّدْتُكَ بِرُوحِ الْقُدُسِ تُكَلِّمُ النَّاسَ فِي الْمَهْدِ وَكَهْلًا ۖ وَإِذْ عَلَّمْتُكَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَالتَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنْجِيلَ ۖ وَإِذْ تَخْلُقُ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ بِإِذْنِي فَتَنْفُخُ فِيهَا فَتَكُونُ طَيْرًا بِإِذْنِي ۖ وَتُبْرِئُ الْأَكْمَهَ وَالْأَبْرَصَ بِإِذْنِي ۖ وَإِذْ تُخْرِجُ الْمَوْتَىٰ بِإِذْنِي ۖ وَإِذْ كَفَفْتُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنْكَ إِذْ جِئْتَهُمْ بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ فَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ إِنْ هَٰذَا إِلَّا سِحْرٌ مُبِينٌ{111}

 

When Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, remember My favour upon thee and upon thy mother; when I strengthened thee with the Spirit of holiness so that thou didst speak to the people in the cradle and in middle age; and when I taught thee the Book and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when thou didst fashion a creation out of clay, in the likeness of a bird, by My command; then thou didst breathe into it a new spirit and it became a soaring being by My command; and thou didst heal the night-blind and the leprous by My command; and when thou didst raise the dead by My command; and when I restrained the children of Israel from putting thee to death when thou didst come to them with clear Signs; and those who disbelieved from among them said, ‘This is nothing but clear deception.’ (Chapter 5 Verse 111)

 

Ibn Kathir stated in regards to the kitab and hikmah:

الْكِتَـبَوَالْحِكْمَةَ

(the Book and Al-Hikmah). It appears that the `Book’ the Ayah mentioned here refers to writing. We explained the meaning of Al-Hikmah in the Tafsir of Surat Al-Baqarah.

التَّوْرَاةَ وَالإِنجِيلَ

(the Tawrah and the Injil). The Tawrah is the Book that Allah sent down to Musa, son of `Imran, while the Injil is what Allah sent down to `Isa, son of Maryam, peace be upon them

In regards  to this verse, explaining Kitab and Hikmah, Ibn Katheer states:

(And when I taught you the Book and the Hikmah,) the power of writing and understanding. (Tafseer Ibn Katheer, under Chapter 5 Verse 110)

Furthermore, many other scholars support this interpretation from the early scholars including Imam Al Razi, and Imam al Qurtubi. Imam Al Razi stated in his Tafseer al Kabeer that kitab here refers to writing. Imam Al Qurtubi states:

 قال ٱبن جُريج: الكتاب الكتابة والخط

Meaning that Ibn Jareej has stated that this refers to book writing and calligraphy.

Hazrat Imam Suyuti who was a great Mujadid states in his tafseer under this ayah:

وأخرج ابن جرير عن ابن جريج { ويعلمه الكتاب } قال: بيده.

That according to Ibn Jareej, this refers to writing by hand.

Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmadra States: “The word Book signifies both “the Book” and the “art of writing.” If the word be here taken to mean “the Book”, then it would apply to the “Torah,” the Law of Moses, and in this case the concluding words “The Torah and the Gospel” would be taken as explanatory, the word “Torah” standing for the “Book” and the word “Gospel” for “Wisdom” (Five Volume Commentary of the Holy Qur’an Page 398)

It is obvious that since the Qur’an doesn’t say he would be taught the Qur’an and ahadith, he has died a natural death. Furthermore, this is a conversation on qiyamah, and if Isaas did return he would have been taught the Qur’an and the ahadith.
