Ahl-i-Hadith scholar Sanaullah Amritsari and Death of Messiah

The Ahl-i-Hadith scholar, Mawlana Abul Wafaa Sanaullah Khan of Amritsar (d. 1948) accepted the reality of the death of the Messiah (alaihis-salaam) in the pages of his Urdu translation and commentary of the Holy Quran.

Translating the verse (3:55):

اِذۡ قَالَ اللّٰہُ یٰعِیۡسٰۤی اِنِّیۡ مُتَوَفِّیۡکَ

Mawlana Sanaullah Amritsari wrote:

جب اللہ نے کہا اے عیسی میں تجھے فوت کرنے والا

Translation: When Allah said: “O Eesaa! I am going to cause you to die”

Commenting on the reality of this, Sanaullah writes:

اس آیت کے معنی میں انہی کا ترجمہ منظور کیا ہےاور متوفی کے معنی موت دینے والا لکھا ہے۔

Translation: “Regarding the meaning of this Ayat (Verse) their [Ahmadiyya] translation has been accepted and I have written the meaning of Mutawaffi as 'One Giving Death'”

Reference: Tafsir-i-Sanai; v.1, p.211
