Part-2 Word “tawaffa”

Quran 6:60

“And it is He who takes your souls by night and knows what you have committed by day. Then He revives you therein that a specified term may be fulfilled. Then to Him will be your return; then He will inform you about what you used to do.”

The word “yatawaffaa kum” here is used in meaning of taking away the soul but not death, because He also says He revives whoever He wills.

In the next Ayah he says:
“And He is the subjugator over His servants, and He sends over you guardian-angels until, when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and they do not fail [in their duties].”

The word “al mautu” is used as “death”. The word next to “mautu” is “tawaffahu rusuluna” meaning “Messengers Take him“. So tawaffa doesn’t NECESSARILY mean as “death” it means “to take away“.

If Quran has used word tawaffa for Esa (as) then any sensible person even non-ahmadi would give atleast 1% chance that may be Esa (as) has indeed died. But nowhere in Quran word alive or living is used for Esa (as). Nowhere in Hadith, Hazrat Muhammad (saw) has said that Esa (as) is alive. Yet you are insistent upon believing in that. Never in the history of this universe anyone has remained alive like you are proposing for Esa (as). If such an event did take place then don’t you think Quran would have mentioned it? Yet Quran doesn’t use… Read more »

Nowhere in the Quran or Hadith it has been mentioned that Jesus (Isa) a.s has died. It is the false and misleading teachings of the lying MGA due to which the Ahmadis have been mislead into many false beliefs. Therefore, it is very important to follow the authentic chain of teaching from the holy Prophet s.a.w.s. The so called Ahmadi Muslims are not true Muslims because they deviated completely from the true teachings of Islam.

Claims of MGA were either copied from someone or deliberate attempts to distort true teachings of Islam.
You translated yourself 6:60: “And it is He who takes your souls by night and knows what you have committed by day. Then He revives you therein that a specified term may be fulfilled”. Even in the verse above yatawaffakum means “take away souls”. The next verse below clearly talks about death as you mentioned, after mentioning of death tawaffa can again only mean “take away souls”. It does not mean take away of the body as per translation below: 6:61: “And He is Supreme over His servants, and He sends guardians to watch over you, until, when death comes… Read more »
^ This research has proved that MGA lied when he wrote that everytime Tawafee was used in the Quran it meant death. That is a bold face lie.
