Travel in time: Ezekiel

 

  • “How one can travel in future time and place? Any idea?” Paarsurrey your concepts of time are based on modern precepts, obviously not those at the time the Quran was penned/envisioned.
    You see this is the problem with any story, with ‘time’ it gets lost in translation with old and new metaphors and belief constructs being intermixed at one’s interpretative convenience. As I’m sure you have no memory of being around at the time the Quran first appeared, I’m sure you will agree that it is difficult to substantiate with any ounce of truth or proof. And don’t start telling me there is any archaeological evidence of pure hearsay. I’ve studied archaeology at university, and it is a very vague pursuit at best based on probabilities. It is difficult to prove anything beyond a moment ago, even with radio-carbon dating. Getting exact dates and facts is still nigh on impossible, unless of course you happen to find a coin with a date on it, which for any archaeologist is still the most important find.

     

    • Hi friend Ishaiya!

      Quoting your words:

      ““How one can travel in future time and place? Any idea?” Paarsurrey your concepts of time are based on modern precepts, obviously not those at the time the Quran was penned/envisioned.
      You see this is the problem with any story, with ‘time’ it gets lost in translation with old and new metaphors and belief constructs being intermixed at one’s interpretative convenience.

      I don’t agree with you.
      If travel in time and place was possible in times of Ezekiel (a messenger prophet of the one true God); as recorded in Quran; so it was possible in the time of Muhammad also.

      Ezekiel was passing near the ruined city of Jerusalem, a sacred city of Jews; he was grieved at the ruin of the city at hands of Nebuchadnezzar; at that time the one true God showed him the vision, a travel in time, and showed him the hustle bustle of the city after a hundred years. This dialogue is recorded in Quran in these words:

      [2:260] Or like him who passed by a town which had fallen down upon its roofs, and exclaimed, ‘When will Allah restore it to life after its destruction?’ Then Allah caused him to die for a hundred years; then He raised him, and said: ‘How long hast thou remained in this state?’ He answered, ‘I have remained a day or part of a day.’ He said: ‘Nay, thou hast remained in this state for a hundred years. Now look at thy food and thy drink; they have not rotted. And look at thy ass. And We have done this that We may make thee a Sign unto men. And look at the bones, how We set them and then clothe them with flesh.’ And when this became clear to him, he said, ‘I know that Allah has the power to do all that He wills.’
