THE CURSED TREE OF ZAQQUM
DURING THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD'S VISION OF TRAVELLING TO JERUSALEM HE WAS SHOWN THE CURSED TREE OF ZAQQUM.
Jesus was crucified but survived. As the Last Adam he defeated the cursed Tree of Zaqqum. When the Prophet Muhammad came to Jerusalem in the Midnight Journey to Ascension he was shown the Tree of Zaqqum. This was the Wooden Cross that Jesus suffered on in Jerusalem. The Wooden Cross is the Dead Tree or Tree of Death
And when We said to you: Surely your Lord encompasses men; and We did not make THE VISION WHICH WE SHOWED YOU BUT A TRIAL FOR MEN AND THE CURSED TREE IN THE KORAN AS WELL; and We cause them to fear, but it only adds to their great inordinancy.
The Cursed Tree of Zaqqum was a trial or test of mankind. That could only be overcome by Isa at crucifixion.
The suffering endured by Jesus on the Cross did not pay for the personal sins of mankind but reversed the fallen and sinful state that was inherited from the First Adam. The First Adam fell before the Cursed Tree and the Last Adam defeated the Cursed Tree.
THE TREE OF DEATH AND THE DEAD TREE TESTING THE FIRST AND SECOND ADAM
The First Adam was defeated at the Tree of Death, while the Second Adam defeated the Dead Tree which was the wooden cross:
The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'"
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
IN BEING NAILED TO THE CROSS JESUS BECAME ONE WITH THE CURSED TREE OF ZAQQUM. IN THIS REGARD HE WAS MADE A CURSE. HOWEVER IN SURVIVING CRUCIFIXION(AS FORETOLD THROUGH THE SIGN OF JONAH) HE DEFEATED THE CURSED TREE AND REDEEMED US FROM THE SINFUL, CURSED AND FALLEN STATE OF THE FIRST ADAM
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
THE CURSED TREE OF ZAQQUM APPEARS IN BOTH THE GARDEN OF EDEN AND THE GARDEN OF CRUCIFIXION
The First Adam was defeated by a Tree that was located in the GARDEN
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the GARDEN, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
The Second Adam defeated the curse of the Dead Tree being the wooden cross which was located in a GARDEN
Now in the place where he was crucified there was a GARDEN
When Mary Magdalene found Jesus Christ alive she saw him as the Second Adam being the GARDENER:
When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and beholdeth Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the GARDENER saith unto him, Sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
Therefore by surviving the cross and defeating the cursed Tree of Zaqqum, Jesus Christ became the New Gardener of the restored paradise being the rejuvenated earth known to Muslims as Jannah
He is the High Priest in the Order of Melchizadok who is also known as Al-Khidr meaning the Green one who restores the Garden. The Prophet Muhammad once stated that Al-Khidr sat on barren land and it immediately became Green with vegetation.
