Imam Muhammad b. Abdul Wahhab (R.A) and Death of Jesus (A.S)


Imam Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab al-Najdi (rahimahullah) showed his preference for the belief that the Messiah of Nazareth (alaihis salam) has died. In his monumental biography of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam), Imam ibn Abdul Wahhab recounted the episode of Jarud's (R.A) debate with the apostates of Bahrain after the death of the Prophet (alaihis salam):


وفي لفظ أنه قال: ما شهادتكم على موسى؟ قالوا: نشهد أنه رسول الله. قال: فما شهادتكم على عيسى؟ قالوا: نشهد أنه رسول الله. قال: وأنا أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله, وأن محمداً عبده ورسوله. عاش كما عاشوا , ومات كما ماتوا


Translation: From Jarud (R.A) in these words: “What is your testimony concerning Moses?” They said: “We bear witness that he is the Messenger of Allah.” He (Jarud) said: “And what is your testimony concerning Jesus?” They said: “We bear witness that he is the Messenger of Allah.” He (Jarud) said: “And I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and Muhammad is His servant and Messenger. He lived as they all lived, and he died as they all died.”
