Jesus to preside over Day of Judgement
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Day! It is believed that
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Question: It is believed that
Neither Prophet Isa (a.s.), nor any Prophet, nor anyone in creation will preside over the Day of Judgement; for that Tumultous Day the One and Only Judge will be none except the Supreme and Majestic Lord of the Worlds, Allah Subhanah wa Taala; and He Alone will Judge with absolute Justice amongst His slaves.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 1 Surah Fatehah verses 1-4:
1 In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
2 Praise be to Allah, The Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds.
3 Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
4 Master of the Day of Judgment.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 40 Surah Mumin verses 18-20:
18 Warn them of the Day that is (ever) drawing near, when the hearts will (come) right up to the throats to choke (them); no intimate friend nor intercessor will the wrongdoers have who could be listened to.
19 (Allah) knows of (the tricks) that deceive with the eyes, and all that hearts (of men) conceal.
20 And Allah will Judge with (Justice and) Truth: but those whom (men) invoke besides Him will not (be in a position) to judge at all! Verily it is Allah (Alone) Who hears and sees (all things).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 17:
17 Those who believe (in the Qur'an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians, the Christians, the Magians, and the polytheists Allah will Judge between them on the Day of Judgment: for Allah is Witness of all things.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 22 Surah Hajj verses 55-57:
55 Those who reject Faith will not cease to be in doubt concerning (Revelation) until the Hour (of Judgment) comes suddenly upon them, or there comes to them the Penalty of a Day of Disaster.
56 On that Day the Dominion will be that of Allah: He will Judge between them: so those who believe and work righteous deeds will be in Gardens of Delight.
57 And for those who reject Faith and deny Our Signs, there will be a humiliating Punishment.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 22 Surah Hajj verses 69:
69 "Allah will Judge between you on the Day of Judgment concerning the matters in which ye differ."
Not only will Allah Subhanah be the Only Judge on that
Tumultuous and Inevitable Day of Judgment, none amongst creation, regardless of
whether one be a Prophet or an
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 78 Surah Naba verses 37-39:
37 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between, (Allah) The Most Gracious: none shall have power to argue with Him.
38 The Day that the Spirit (Gibrael (a.s.) and the
39 That Day will be the Sure Reality: therefore whoso wills, let him take a (straight) Return to his Lord!
Prophet Isa (a.s.), like all the other Prophets, will only be brought forth as witnesses for or against their people in the Majestic Court of the Majestic Lord of the Worlds; and Allah Subhanah Alone will Judge amongst His creation with Justice.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses 109-110 and 116-118:
109 One day will Allah gather (all) the Messengers together and ask: "What was the response ye received (from men to your teaching)? They will say: "We have no knowledge: it is Thou (O Lord) who Knowest in full all that is hidden.
110 Then will Allah say: "O Jesus, the son of
116 And behold! Allah (on the Day of Judgment) will say "O Jesus,
the son of
117 Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say; ie. `Worship Allah my Lord and your Lord'; and I was a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up, Thou (O Lord) was the Watcher over them and Thou art a Witness to all things.
118 If Thou dost punish them they are Thy servants: if Thou dost forgive them Thou art the Exalted, the Wise.”
Thus my beloved brother, in light of the above clear
guidance of the Holy Quran, it is an absolutely and utterly unfounded and false
belief to believe that
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
