In Response To: Why the Quran says that Jesus was raised (Ahsan Sarosh)

The word RAFA means “raised up” but it has nothing to do with physically “going up”, and is more correctly “raised in honour, exalted”. It is translated and understood as exalted and honoured when referring to other Prophets but is never translated as “raised up alive unto Himself” for them. Why?

19:56 And make mention of Idris (Enoch) in the Book. Surely, he was a man of Truth, a Prophet.
19:57 And We raised him to a high station of honour.
19:58 These are some of the prophets whom God Blessed. They all were from the descendants of Adam, the early humans. The descendants of those whom We carried with Noah on the Ark, and the descendants of Abraham and Jacob, the Israel. We guided them and selected them. Whenever the messages of the Most Gracious were conveyed to them, they would fall down prostrate in tears. [Devoted to submission, they put their hearts into their mission]
