[qadianism] Fwd: Return of Prophet Isa (`alayhis-salam) in the Qur'an
By Umar Aadil Abdul Rahman McKloskey @mailcity.com

I stand corrected on this point. Allah (S.W.T.) does indeed make
mention of the coming return of Isa (A.S.) in the Holy Qur'an. I
apologize for the error and ask forgiveness of Allah (S.W.T.).

While the return of `Isa (`alayhis-salam)  may not be stated 
explicitly in the Qur'n, it can nevertheless be deduced from 
several verses:

1. "And there is none of the People of the Book but will 
surely believe in him before his death, and on the Day of 
Resurrection, he will be a witness over them.'' Qur'an[4:159]

2. "And he shall speak to MANKIND in the cradle, AND IN OLD
AGE, and (he shall be) one of the righteous.''{Qur'an [3:46], 
my emphasis.}

The wording here is important. Jesus (peace be upon him) was a 
messenger to the Israelites, but this verse says he will speak 
to mankind without any specifications. Furthermore, it says he 
will speak to them in old age, yet he left this world at the 
age of 33 years.{Reported by Ibn Kathir and others.} Both of 
these points are an indication of the fact that Jesus has not
died, and will return to this earth toward the end of the world,
thereby speaking to mankind at large in his old age.

3. "And surely he (Jesus) is a sign of the Hour, so do not
doubt concerning it." Q[43:61]

Will they then not ponder over the Qur'an? Or are there locks 
upon their hearts?
