“The concept of his crucifixion is totally false. It never occurred because Allah says very clearly in the Qur’an: “And concerning their saying, ‘We killed the Messiah Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s Messenger.’ They killed him not, nor crucified, but it appeared so to them. Indeed those who disagree concerning it are in doubt about it. They have no (true) knowledge about it except that they follow conjecture. Surely, they did not kill him. But Allah did take him up unto Himself. Allah is ever Mighty, Wise.” (An-Nisaa’: 157-158)”
—Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America
Allah could not have said this because the event of Jesus’ death on the cross is historically sound.
