Question : In surah Maida ayah 117 it says: "I did not say to them aught save what Thou didst enjoin me with: That serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord, and I was a witness of them so long as I was among them, but when Thou didst cause me to die, Thou wert the watcher over them, and Thou art witness of all things."
This is the speech of Hazrat Isa (as). In Islam we say that he did not die based on the statement of the Quran but how should we understand this sentance from the ayah: "but when Thou didst cause me to die"? Does it mean that he die afterall or what?
Answer : The term “Teweffaytani” that is mentioned in the verse does not mean death. It means finishing the time that Allah has assigned for his link to earth since after such time has elapsed, Almighty Allah raise His Prophet to the sky.
