Nazool-e-Maseh – A Perspective by Javed Ahmed Ghamidi

Syed Manzoor-ul-Hassan


This book is based on the groundbreaking web series “Response to 23 Questions,” produced by the Ghamidi Center of Islamic Learning. In this series, renowned scholar Javed Ahmed Ghamidi addresses key objections to his interpretation of Islam and its application. Manzoor Ul Hassan has meticulously documented the arguments presented in the series and all necessary references for academic purposes.

“Descent of Jesus”

The concept of “Descent of Jesus” consists of four concepts: ‘Ascension of Jesus,’ ‘Life of Jesus,’ ‘Return of Jesus,’ and ‘Death of Jesus.’ It means that when the Jews wanted to crucify Jesus (PBUH), Allah lifted him alive towards the sky. Near the Day of Judgment, he will return to earth, kill the Antichrist (Dajjal), and then pass away. Javed Ahmed Ghamidi accepts the ascension of Jesus but considers the idea of his being lifted alive contrary to the Quran. As for the concept of his physical descent, he regards it as questionable due to the problems that arise when interpreting the narratives of Jesus’s descent in the light of the Quran and the principles of Hadith interpretation. However, he accepts these narratives but interprets them in the light of the narration of Abdullah bin Masood. According to it, Jesus himself told during the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) ascension that he would descend before the Day of Judgment and kill the Antichrist (Dajjal).
