A little explanation of Quran 19:33 (regarding Jesus)

It is mentioned in Surah Maryam, Chapter 19 verse 33
“So Peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die and the Day that I shall be raised up to life
[Al-Qur’an 19:33]

The Qur’an mentions that Jesus (pbuh) said “Peace is on me the Day I was born, the day that I die”. It is not stated “the day that I died”. It is in the future tense and not in the past tense.

The Qur’an further says in Surah Nisa, Chapter 4 verse 157-158: “That they said (in boast), ‘We killed Jesus Christ the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah’ – But they killed him not, Nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not – Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is exalted in Power, Wise.”

  1. The day that I die and the day I will be resurrected are in the future tense because when Jesus said it, it had not happened yet!
    How can Jesus say it in the past tense ? He is speaking of events that are to come.

    1. Jesus said on the day that I die, because obviously He hadn’t died yet, or He wouldn’t be speaking. Jesus was speaking about His crucifixion, which happened; because there are many eyewitnesses that were even non Jewish that recorded what happened on that day. It is a historical fact; not a pretension- and Jesus’s words came true, as He was Risen from the grave. Jesus even says: I am the resurrection and the life( He did not say Allah is the resurrection, which in the Qur’an, one of the names of Allah, is Al Baeth(The Ressurection) if Jesus says that He Himself is the ressurection; then He is giving Himself the very same name that Allah has. 👈🏻 Coincidence?… I do not believe so.😇

  2. The crucifixion of Christ is more of unexplained mystery as reading the oft quoted verses such as Sura 4:157, 158 Sura 3:55 and Sura 19:33 lead to.
    One can easily conclude four different views about Al Masihs crucifixion, while the most accepted view is one of substitution theory.
    This theory reveals unexplained injustice vide crucifixion of the unknown. It appears to be a repudiation of some kind while the Quran bestows titles of extraordinary kind as well as referring to Al Masih as the Messiah 11 times in the Quran, yet does not explain his mission. Al masih is viewed differently by the Muslim Sufis.
    No wonder Ibn Arbi calls him MARD E KAMIL.
    To me there is a unsolved mystery about Al Masih that serious reader like myself discovers and rediscovers.

  3. in Surah 4 verse 157. God Almighty says in the meaning of the verse that they did not kill or crucify him

    Then, in the verse that follows (Surah 4 verse 158), God Almighty says, (“ Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.”) This means that he raised it to him.

    In Surah 19 verse 33 (“And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive. ”) This means that he is talking about his death

    In Surah 19 verse 33 when he said, (“the day I am raised alive”)He does not intend to be raised from earth to heaven, as God raised Jesus,
    In the true sense
    What is meant is to revive the dead on the Day of Judgment (raised alive == come alive), not to be raised from earth to heaven, and this will happen to every person , allah will revive him after his death on the Day of Judgment

    There is an inaccuracy in the translation
    Translate these into Google Translate
    Surah 4 verse 158 == رفعه الله
    In Surah 19 verse 33 == ابعث حيا
    رفعه الله ==God raised him
    ابعث حيا ==Come alive
    This means that after Jesus dies, he will be alive again on Judgment Day
    And this happens to everyone
    The story of Jesus is
    Jesus was born, then God raised him to him, then he will die one day as it happens to all human beings as mentioned in the Qur’an in several verses ( Surah 21 verse 35 ,Surah 4 verse 78,Surah 3 verse 185,21 verse 34), then God will revive him again like all people on the Day of Judgment

  4. This seems like an obvious contradiction in quran.. Here the islamic jesus is predicting he will die and then will raise up afterwards… But elsewhere quran claims jesus did not die.
