Chaitanya continued, "In the spiritual world Allah has
provided seats for the Payagambars (Prophets) who are completely free from the
influence of Jisam (Material Nature)."In the sura "Al-Ma'ida",
or "The Table Spread" of the Holy Qur'an, a solemn scene before the
Court of Judgment is put before us in graphic words, showing the responsibility
and the limitations of the Prophets of Allah, sent to preach His Message to
mankind. The Messengers are sent to preach the Truth. The perverted form the
Message may take after man's reaction to it is beyond the Messengers'
responsibility:"On the day when Allah will gather the Messengers together,
and ask: 'What was the response you received (from men to your teachings)?'They
will say: 'We have no knowledge. It is You Who knows in full all that is
hidden." (5.109)"Then will Allah ask: X) Jesus, son of Mary! Did you
say unto men, take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah?'
He will say: "Glory to You! Never could I say what I had no right (to say). If I said it, then You would indeed have known it. You know what is in my heart, though I know not what is in Your heart. For You know in full all that is hidden. I said to them only that which You commanded me, (saying): 'Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.' I was a witness over them while I lived among them, and when You took me up, You were the Watcher over them. You are a witness to all things. If You punish them, they are Your servants, and if You forgive them (they are Your servants). You are the Mighty, the Wise.'" (5.116-118)
Thus Jesus Christ was taken up by Allah to the spiritual realm as it is also mentioned in Qur'an (4.158). In this way the pure souls, especially the messengers of the Supreme Lord attain the spiritual world where Allah provides them with life, which is completely free from the influence of material nature.At the end of his speech Jesus Christ mentions that if God punished sinners or forgave them, in any case they are His eternal servants. A spirit soul is an eternal servant of God. It is the subject matter of the next statement of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
