Syed Qutb and the Death of Jesus the Messiah عليه افضل الصلوات والتسليمات

The prolific writer and so called “Islamist” thinker and activist, Syed Qutb, who was executed by the Egyptian government in 1966, commented on the following passage of the Holy Qur'an:

وَّ جَعَلَنِیۡ مُبٰرَکًا اَیۡنَ مَا کُنۡتُ ۪ وَ اَوۡصٰنِیۡ بِالصَّلٰوۃِ وَ الزَّکٰوۃِ مَا دُمۡتُ حَیًّا

(The Messiah said): “He (Allah) has made me blessed wherever I may be, and has enjoined upon me Salaat (prayer) and Zakaat (alms-giving) for so long as I am alive.

وَ السَّلٰمُ عَلَیَّ یَوۡمَ وُلِدۡتُّ وَ یَوۡمَ اَمُوۡتُ وَ یَوۡمَ اُبۡعَثُ حَیًّا

And peace be upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised to life.”

(Surah 19:31, 33)

*This passage of the Holy Qur'an is a clear proof that the Messiah son of Mary (peace be upon him) has already died and is no longer living in this world. That is because the Messiah says that so long as he is alive Allah has enjoined him to pay the Zakaat (give alms to the needy), but since it is nowhere proven that any needy people or anyone for that matter are receiving Zakaat from the Messiah, therefore, it is conclusively proven that he has died. There is simply no other explanation.

Although not an Islamic scholar, Syed Qutb recognized this fact in his commentary of the Holy Qur'an. Commenting on this passage he wrote:

والنص صريح هنا في موت عيسى وبعثه. وهو لا يحتمل تأويلاً في هذه الحقيقة ولا جدالاً

The statement is very clear here in respect of the death and resurrection of Jesus. It admits no argument or different interpretation.
