its never stated who was it that died but the quran just says it was somone of resembelence to jesus the reason is because first, god didnt want the prophet to be tortured second, so he may resurect and defeat the antichrist because God decided at the beggining of time that human beings will never be allowed to return to the earth once they died so if Allah allowed him to return it would be contradictory so he was was brought up to the heavens untill the awaited day of his resurection and at that day the true religion will be clear to the whole world and we will be at peace and everyone will submit to god, it will be a beautiful day :)

We dont belive that jesus raised anyone from the dead also no one ever said that somone was born for this reson we were not given how this happened but many scholars belive that god made an enemy look like jesus because Allah is all powerful and then they crucified him or somone volenteered or somone was born but this really isnt important it dosent really change our belifs does is matter if somone was created for this reason we were created to worship god and we dont mind Allah could have also given this decoy(if there was one) no nervous system so he wouldent feel anything some times we can just say "Allah knows best"

Im not sure, but up to my knowledge, Jesus had 12 closest follower or companions, they all witnessed God's miracles on Jesus' hand and food from heaven was brought down infront of the 12 to have no more doubt, however,one of the 12 (lets name him Mr.A because i dont know his name) betrayed Jesus and told the Jews where Jesus was staying inreturn for some money.. And the day the Jews where heading to Jesus, the 12 followers where with him. and when the Jews reached, Mr.A started to be seen as Jesus by everyone, as a punishment for his betrayal and disbelieve and that he should go through what he was about to make Jesus go throw, so he was the one crucified.. And Jesus was raised as his mission is not yet finished

And thats what I think we Shia Muslims believe

"O Mankind, the Messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord, so believe; it is better for you. But if you disbelieve - then indeed, to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth. And ever is Allah Knowing and Wise." AL-QURAN 4:170

"O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs." AL-QURAN 4:171

the person that was on the cross is the one that told the Jews where Jesus was hiding even after being with Jesus all this time and saw Gods miracles on Jesus' hand.. he is on of the 12 closest companions or followers of Jesus.. Its a punishment for the betraying and disbelieving

PEACE BE uUPON yOU Which god who need not fool the people? Jesus as you ( christians says-as god?) u mean Jesus?

Now about being not the one who died on the cross-First tell the real Powers of (Allah) i didnt say god because it has pluralities as goddess; His is a word "be' and there it is. I know this wont quench your thirst But iam sure you khow about the software "Morphy" you dont tell me that it was invented by humans while i will ask who Created them. I leave this in shfort I know you are well aducated and will take no time to summerise my point. thank you.

http://researchislam.com/?page_id=21 this can help read it and, it will make perfect scene. I told you when you have any Questions to try and ask Scholars, Imam or Sheikhs, I think all of these Muslims have answered the same answer but talking to someone who is different than writing only because as much as we want to elaborate on many issues which many intertwine with other stories best explained in person. In Islam we have ONE answer and it has a logic and wisdom. We are certain of the Message God sent alhanduallah, It is great ur educating urself but, I have seen ur Questions and u don't seem like the person who wants to hear the answers god bless u. ur intention I think is to ask Q's can confuse us but, like I said we all have ONE BOOK so we all give the same Answers no matter the different Branches. Good luck

My dear brother there is a big difference ragarding your questioning about our prophet Isa (Christ) when asking a muslim and a non-muslim.

We Muslims can not comment on something that we dont know about! if we are uncertain about the question we are supposed to say (if i am not mistaken, I am not sure) we are supposed to base our premises from the holy book Quran or the sunnah! on the other hand, In other religion every man has its own assumptions about something thus making it more confusing (No harm intended)!!

Regarding the topic the users of this sites came here to clarify things too. We are seekers of truth! I have knowledge about the question but since i am not sure of it I am not gonna share it! What I am trying to tell you is that we have limited knowledge about our religion,that is why we need to educate ourselves more. In order to clarify this question for you the best thing you should do is ASK A SCHOLAR! Ill help you on the way, ill do some research too on the process!
