BIBLE : Let us make man in our image, in our likeness

Question: “What does it mean that humanity is made in the image of God?”

Answer: On the last day of creation, God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness” (Genesis 1:26).

Thus, He finished His work with a “personal touch.

God formed man from the dust and gave him life by sharing His own breath (Genesis 2:7).

 

Do Muslims believe in man being created in the image of God?

Do Muslims believe in man being created in the image of God?

Do you believe that man is created in the image of God?

Muslims do not believe man is created in the image of God’s essence. God does not physically look like human beings or have the inherent limitations of humanity. He does not have arms and legs as we do, nor is He of flesh and blood. The Qur’an reveals that God is not like any of His creatures in essence. [QUR’AN, 112:1–4]

When god created man in it’s own image, the bible means that man is similar to god in the sense that we have the same characteristics  as he does. Such as Love, compassion.

Muslims do not believe man is created in the image of God’s essence. God does not physically look like human beings or have the inherent limitations of humanity. He does not have arms and legs as we do, nor is He of flesh and blood.

Accordingly, man is unique among all God’s creations, having both a material body and an immaterial soul/spirit.

Having the “image” or “likeness” of God means, in the simplest terms, that we were made to resemble God.

Adam did not resemble God in the sense of God’s having flesh and blood. Scripture says that “God is spirit Ruh Al Qadoos (John 4:24) and therefore exists without a body. However, Adam’s body did mirror the life of God insofar as it was created in perfect health and was not subject to death.

The image of God refers to the immaterial part of man. It sets man apart from the animal world, fits him for the dominion God intended him to have over the earth (Genesis 1:28), and enables him to commune with his Maker. It is a likeness mentally, morally, and socially.

Mentally, man was created as a rational, volitional agent. In other words, man can reason and man can choose. This is a reflection of God’s intellect and freedom. Anytime someone invents a machine, writes a book, paints a landscape, enjoys a symphony, calculates a sum, or names a pet, he or she is proclaiming the fact that we are made in God’s image.

Morally, man was created in righteousness and perfect innocence, a reflection of God’s holiness. God saw all He had made (mankind included) and called it “very good” (Genesis 1:31). Our conscience or “moral compass” is a vestige of that original state. Whenever someone writes a law, recoils from evil, praises good behavior, or feels guilty, he is confirming the fact that we are made in God’s own image.

Socially, man was created for fellowship. This reflects God’s triune nature and His love. In Eden, man’s primary relationship was with God (Genesis 3:8 implies fellowship with God), and God made the first woman because “it is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18).

Every time someone marries, makes a friend, hugs a child, or attends church, he is demonstrating the fact that we are made in the likeness of God.

Part of being made in God’s image is that Adam had the capacity to make free choices. Although he was given a righteous nature, Adam made an evil choice to rebel against his Creator. In so doing, Adam marred the image of God within himself, and he passed that damaged likeness on to all his descendants (Romans 5:12).

Today, we still bear the image of God (James 3:9), but we also bear the scars of sin. Mentally, morally, socially, and physically, we show the effects of sin.

The good news is that when God redeems an individual, He begins to restore the original image of God, creating a “new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24).

That redemption is only available by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior from the sin that separates us from God (Ephesians 2:8-9). Through Christ, we are made new creations in the likeness of God (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Does the Qur’an deny the death of Jesus?

QURAN Confirms JESUS DIED and RAISED to HEAVEN

 

For Muslim Christians or just Christians the Qur’an is not from God and therefore not authoritative, so strictly speaking what it claims would change nothing.  However, Muslims claim it is from God and that it denies the death of Jesus.  I would like to ask them whether that is necessarily the case.


Quran : 4:157-158

Ninety percent of the time, my Muslim friends will immediately quote, “They killed him not, they crucified him not, but it was likened unto them [orit appeared into them]. They killed him not knowingly, but God raised him and God is the most merciful of merciful.” (Qur’an, Surah 4:157-158).

In their minds, this verse says that God would never have allowed a great prophet like Jesus to be crucified by His enemies.

 

But does this verse really say that Jesus did not die?

Is that how most Muslim scholars themselves interpret it? What does, “They killed him not knowingly,” mean? The fact of the matter is that there are different contradicting interpretations of this verse amongst Muslim scholars.

 

There are various ways of interpreting Surah 4:157-158. One of them would be to remember the Jews’ attitude toward Christ. When Jesus was taken to the Roman governor, they did not believe He was the Messiah. They wanted to get rid of Him. By saying, “They killed him not knowingly,” the Qur’an simply states that they killed Jesus without knowing He was the Messiah.

 

Another possible way to interpret the passage (Surah 4:157-158) is that the unbelieving Jews intended by the crucifixion of Jesus to shame Him in the eyes of the world. The death He would suffer would then destroy and invalidate His mission in the eyes of the world. However, the Jews failed to accomplish their goal. In fact, by the crucifixion, Jesus was glorified when God raised Him up to be with Him. He became the key figure of human history.

Throughout the years countless people have turned to Jesus ChristJewsArabsAsiansEuropeans and people from all other nationalities and classes of society have experienced the life changing power of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.

 

Conclusion? It is not possible – despite what people usually think – to reach a definite conclusion based on this single and ambiguous verse. Muslim scholars are unsure about the end of the life of Jesus on earth. They disagree about whether He died or was raised alive to heaven without dying. Any conclusion from Surah 4:157-158 asserting that Jesus did not die involves speculation and theory. In fact, there are other verses in the Qur’an which say Jesus was killed.

 

This is the first reference from Jesus that he will die.

 

Quran : Surah Maryam 19:33 

In this verse, Jesus is reported to say: “Peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)!” (Qur’an, Surah Maryam 19:33).

Quran: (3:55Lo! God said: O Jesus! Verily, I shall cause thee to die (mutawaffeeka), and shall exalt thee (rafiu-ka) unto Me and cleanse thee of (the presence of) those who are bent on denying the truth; [….].

 

Let us continue:

Quran: (5:117Nothing did I tell them beyond what Thou didst bid me (to say): ‘Worship God, (who is) my Sustainer as well as your sustainer.’ And I bore witness to what they did as long as I dwelt in their midst; but since Thou has caused me to die (tawaffaita-ni) , Thou alone hast been their keeper.
Interpretation of the word ‘wafat‘: The key word here is “wafat” .

The most correct meaning of “wafat” is death, or take away soul.  If soul is taken away from a person, it is nothing but death. The problem arises with regards to this verse, when Muslims refuse to interpret the meaning of “wafat” as death.

 

Irony is that all scholars who translated the Holy Quran do agree “wafat means death.

 

Each and every scholar translated the word “wafat” as death in at least 20 different instances in their translations.  However, in this particular verse, they interpreted the meaning as ‘take away‘ and insinuate physical ascension.

Here are some of the verses in the Holy Quran where Allah used the word “wafat“.

The verses are 2:2342:2403:1934:154:976:617:377:1268:5010:4610:10412:10113:40,
16:2816:3216:7039:4240:6740:7747:27 etc.

You can look up these verses online, here is the link : http://quran.com/. Just type the verse under the search tab. If you want to take a look at the Arabic text in English, on the left side of page, click on under Language “English” then highlight “Transliteration”. You will see the word used “Wafat

In  each of the instances, all these scholars translated the word “wafat” as death, or a word very close to death but none of them used a word to mean take away in alive condition.

We have Jesus speaking of his death in the cradle saying: “So peace is on me the day that I will die,” Quran: Maryam 19:33 And we have God telling Jesus: “I will cause thee to die and raise thee to Myself” Quran: al-Imran 3:55 And in last verse we have Jesus saying: “when Thou didst cause me to die” Quran: al-Ma`idah 5:117.

We see clearly from Quran that Jesus died and rise up to life and took up to heaven.

 Muslim scholars, who believe that Jesus did not die, find themselves in a dilemma at verses like this one. Many of them attempt to respond by saying that this is a future event. Jesus will come back to this world some day to do many great and wonderful things, and then He will die.

However, we read almost an identical passage in QuranSurah Maryam 19:15 about Yahya (John the Baptist):

So Peace on him [Yahya] (John the Baptist) the day he was born, the day that he dies, and the day that he will be raised up to life (again)!”


Bible : Matthew 14,1012 :

10 So John was beheaded in the prison,11 and his head was brought on a tray and given to the girl, who took it to her mother.12 Later, John’s disciples came for his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus what had happened.

Muslims recognize the fact that Yahya (John the Baptist) died and was buried.

I don’t know of any Muslim who would shift the death of Yahya (John the Baptist) to the future! All know that Yahya (John the Baptist) died. Therefore, following the plain meaning of the parallel verse, no one should shift the death of Jesus to the future. In fact there isn’t a single verse in the Qur’an showing that Jesus will return to die.

Yahya (John the Baptist) who died; the parallel statement clearly shows that Jesus also died.

 

QuranSurah Al-Imran 3:55 and Surah Al-Maida 5:116-117

Another Qur’anic passage that speaks of the death of Jesus is Surah Al-Imran 3:55:

Behold! Allah said: ‘O Jesus! I will take thee to Me [Arabic: mutawaffeeka, meaning ‘I will cause you to die’] and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection.’”

 

Still another is:“I (Son of Marywas a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up [Arabic: tawaffaitani, meaning, ‘caused me to die’] Thou wast the Watcher over them, and Thou art a witness to all things.” (Qur’an, Surah Al-Maida 5: 117).

 

These Qur’anic texts show that Christ died, even though they do not discuss how His death took place. Were the Biblical and other historic records of Jesus’ crucifixion untrue, we would expect the Qur’an to have many verses stating that Jesus did not die on the cross.

The truth is that, in more than 6,000 Qur’anic verses, there is not a single one that clearly refutes Jesus’ crucifixion.

 

Although Arabic is not my mother language and though I have read the Qur’an many times, I am not an expert in the interpretation of the Qur’an. However, I have tried to show that not all Muslim scholars deny the death of Jesus (as you may think)! The Qur’an contains very little material about what actually happened.

There are quite a few question marks over the real meaning of the above verses. So, there is extensive contradiction and confusion in what Muslim scholars have to say about the death of Christ.

Some have denied the death completely, and explained it as sleeping or death from having lusts; others have accepted the death but differed in their understanding of its duration: three hoursseven hours or three days!

Further more many Muslim’s are not aware of the verses below coming from the Quran that honors Jesus above all and is glorified by God as we must believe in him and we are told Jesus second coming on the day of judgement where he will take back his kingdom. 

And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them;- ” Quran 4:159

And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way.” Quran 43:61

Luke 21:27NIV. “At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”

Bible, Hebrews 9:28, “So also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and He will come again, but not to deal again with our sins. This time He will come bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for Him.”

Therefore, if you are to know the truth, you need to be open-minded and look somewhere else – at extra-Qur’anic evidence.

That is precisely the reason for this website!

 

 

Where Did Jesus Say, “I Am God, Worship Me”?

And when Allah will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah? He will say: Glory be to Thee! it was not for me to say what I had no right to (say). Qur’an 5:116

The Qur’an commands Christians to judge by the Gospel:

Qur’an 5:47—“Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.”

Thus, when Christians present their beliefs, it makes sense for Muslims to ask, “Could you show us where the Bible says that?”

Christians should therefore be eager to present evidence from the Gospel, because Muslims cannot condemn us for doing what the Qur’an commands. Indeed, since the Qur’an affirms not only the Gospel, but also the Torah (Qur’an 5:43), Muslims cannot ignore what the Bible says without thereby rebelling against Islam.

Muslims around the world are being trained to ask Christians, “Where did Jesus say, ‘I am God, worship me,’ in those exact words?”

The Quran Say’s :

And when Allah will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah? He will say: Glory be to Thee! it was not for me to say what I had no right to (say). Qur’an 5:116

However, if Muslims are suggesting that Jesus could only claim to be God by uttering a specific sentence, we may reply by asking, “Where did Jesus say, ‘I am only a prophet, don’t worship me,’ in those exact words?” The unreasonable demand for a particular statement, if applied consistently, would thus force Muslims to reject their own view!

Fortunately, we have a simple way to examine what Jesus said about himself. According to both the Bible and the Qur’an, there are certain claims that only God can truly make. For instance, God alone can correctly state that he created the universe. Of course, a mere human being can pronounce the words, “I created the universe,” but the statement would be false coming from anyone other than God.

Hence, if Jesus said things that can only truly be said by God, we must conclude that Jesus claimed to be God. Interestingly, Jews, Christians, and Muslims agree on many of the claims that cannot be properly made by (or about) mere human beings. Let us consider a few of these.

THE FIRST AND THE LAST

Surah 57:3 of the Qur’an refers to Allah asthe First and the Last, the Most High and the Most Near.”

The Old Testament agrees that God is the “First and the Last,” as we read in the Book of the prophet Isaiah:

Isaiah 44:6Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last, and there is no God besides Me.”

When “LORD” is written in all capitals in the Old Testament, the term refers to Yahweh, the creator of the universe. Since both the Bible and the Qur’an give the title “the First and the Last” to God, it should be quite shocking for Muslims to open the New Testament and read Revelation 1:17-18, where Jesus says:

Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.”

Would a mere prophet claim to be the “First and the Last”?

WHO FORGIVES SINS?

While one human being may sin against another human being, there is a sense in which all sin is rebellion against God. Similarly, while you and I may forgive one another for the wrongs we commit, only God can offer ultimate forgiveness. Thus, the prophet David could say to God, “Against You, You only, I have sinned 
and done what is evil in Your sight” (Psalm 51:4), and the Prophet Daniel could declare, “To the Lord our God belong compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against Him” (Daniel 9:9).

The Qur’an agrees that ultimate forgiveness belongs to God, for it asks, “Who can forgive sins except Allah?” (3:135).

It might surprise Muslims to learn that, in the New Testament, Jesus claims the ability to forgive sins. In Mark 2, a paralyzed man is brought to Jesus in order to be healed. Jesus’ response leads the religious leaders to accuse him of blasphemy:

Mark 2:5-7And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” But some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?”

The scribes correctly recognized that only God can forgive sins. Yet Jesus (who referred to himself as the “Son of Man”), knowing their thoughts, replied that “the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” (Mark 2:10) – He then healed the paralytic, proving that his claims were true.

THE LIGHT

In Psalm 27:1, the prophet David proclaims: “The LORD is my light and my salvation.” Similarly, the Qur’an declares that “Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth” (24:35). Yet Jesus tells his listeners that he is “the Light”:

John 8:12—“I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”


THE TRUTH

The prophet David refers to Yahweh as the “God of Truth” (Psalm 31:5). According to the Qur’an, “Allah is the Truth” (22:6). Jesus, however, applies this as a title for himself:

John 14:6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

How can a mere human being claim to be “The Truth”?

THE FINAL JUDGE

In Chapter 3 of the Book of the prophet Joel, Yahweh declares that the nations will be gathered and that he “will sit to judge all the surrounding nations” (v. 12).

According to the prophet David, “the LORD abides forever;
 He has established His throne for judgment, and He will judge the world in righteousness” (Psalm 9:7-8).

The Qur’an maintains that Allah will judge the world, rewarding believers and punishing unbelievers:

Qur’an 22:56-57The kingdom on that day shall be Allah’s; He will judge between them; so those who believe and do good will be in gardens of bliss. And (as for) those who disbelieve in and reject Our communications, these it is who shall have a disgraceful chastisement.

So why, we may wonder, would Jesus tell his followers that he will be the final judge of all people?

Matthew 25:31-32—“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.”

Jesus goes on to say that he will admit certain people to heaven and cast others into hell. Isn’t this something only God can do?

Quran inserts :

He [Jesus] is a Sign of the Hour. Have no doubt about it. But follow me. This is a straight path. (Surat Az-Zukhruf, 43:61)

There is not one of the People of the Book who will not believe in him before he dies; and on the Day of Resurrection he [Jesus] will be a witness against them. (Surat An-Nisa’, 4:159)


THE RESURRECTION

The Bible and the Qur’an agree that God is the one who will raise the dead.

1 Samuel 2:6The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up.

Qur’an 22:7Allah will resurrect those who are in the graves.

Since God will raise the dead at the resurrection, why would a mere prophet tell his followers that he will resurrect the dead?

John 5:25-29—“Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.”

John 11:25Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies.”


GOD’S GLORY

The Qur’an tells us that “Whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah” (57:1).

In the Old Testament, we find that Yahweh will not share his glory with anyone.

Isaiah 42:8—“I am the LORD, that is My name; 
I will not give My glory to another.” (Cf. Isaiah 48:11—“My glory I will not give to another.”)

Yet Jesus claimed, not only that he would be glorified with the Father, but that he had glory with the Father before the world was created!

John 17:5—“Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.”

How can anyone see this as anything other than a claim to deity?


FURTHER EVIDENCE

In Mark 2:28, Jesus calls himself the “Lord of the Sabbath.” In Matthew 22:41-45, he proves that he is the Lord of the prophet David. In John 8:39-58, Jesus says that he has seen the prophet Abraham. In Matthew 12:6, Jesus claims to be greater than God’s Temple.

Jesus tells us that he has an absolutely unique relationship with the Father (Matthew 11:27), that he can answer prayers (John 14:13-14), that he is present wherever his followers are gathered (Matthew 18:20), that he has “all authority in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18), and that he is with his followers forever (Matthew 28:20). He even makes the startling declaration that “All things that the Father has are Mine” (John 16:15).

According to Jesus, all people must honor him just as we honor the Father:

John 5:21-23—“For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom He wishes. For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, so that all will honor the Son even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.”

Quran 3:45-51Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! God giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to God.

Since one of the ways we honor the Father is by worshiping him, it should come as no surprise that Jesus’ followers worshiped him on numerous occasions.
Indeed, the Gospel tells us that Jesus was worshiped throughout his life:

shortly after his birth (Matthew 2:11),
during his ministry (Matthew 14:33, John 9:38),
after his resurrection (Matthew 28:17),
and after his ascension to heaven (Luke 24:52).

Jesus’ disciple Thomas even addressed him as “my Lord and my God” (John 20:28).

ASSESSMENT

Where did Jesus say, “I am God, worship me”? As we have seen, Jesus claimed to be the First and the Last, the forgiver of sins, the Light, the Truth, the Final Judge, and the Resurrection. Jesus proclaimed that he had :

glory with the Father before the world was created,
that he is the Lord of the Sabbath and of King David,
that he had seen Abraham,
and that he is greater than God’s Temple.

Jesus has a unique relationship with the Father, he can answer prayers, he is with his followers no matter where they are,

he has total authority on earth and in heaven,
he is with his followers forever,
and he owns everything.

Jesus even demanded that he be honored just as the Father is honored.

Clearly, these are not the claims of a mere human being. They are not even the claims of a mighty prophet. These are claims only God can truly make. This is why Christians believe that Jesus is God.


POSTSCRIPT: THE ISLAMIC DILEMMA

Since the Bible obviously supports the Christian view of Jesus, Muslims who want to deny the deity of Christ will have to argue that the Gospel has been corrupted. But if the Gospel has been corrupted, why does the Qur’an command Christians to judge by the Gospel? By commanding us to judge by what we find in the Gospel, the Qur’an has inadvertently ordered Christians to reject Islam!

But it gets worse for Muslims. The Qur’an affirms the inspiration and reliability of the Christian Scriptures (3:3-4, 5:47, 5:66, 7:157, 10:94), as well as man’s inability to corrupt God’s Word (6:114-115, 18:27).

Muslims therefore cannot reject what the Gospel says, which leaves them with quite a dilemma. If the Gospel is reliable, Islam must be false, since the Gospel presents Jesus as God. Alternatively, if the Gospel is unreliable, Islam must be false, because the Qur’an tells us that the Gospel is the Word of God. Either way, Islam is false, and anyone who is searching for the truth will never find it in the Qur’an.

The Sinlessness of Jesus

As a Muslim, you know Allah, but do you know Isa, Jesus Christ, whom God sent?

The Quran urges you to read about Isa in the Quran and in the Bible (Sura 5:46; 10:94-95). The purpose of this article is to demonstrate to our Muslim’s brother & sisters just how close the teachings about Jesus actually are in both the Quran and the Bible.

The Quran teaches that Jesus is unlike any other prophet. It may be surprising to Muslims, but we believe that we can further show that the Quran actually confirms who Christians say that Jesus is!

The Sinlessness of Jesus

According to the Bible, Jesus is the only person who ever lived who was entirely without sin. The book charges all men, from Adam onwards, as being under the power of sin (Romans 3:9), and as having sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; (Romans 3:9)

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23)

Only Jesus is excepted. Numerous passages record the sinlessness of Jesus including 1 Peter 2:222 Corinthians 5:211 John 3:5, etc.

Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth; (1 Peter 2:22)

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him, (2 Corinthians 5:21)

And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins,
and in Him there is no sin, (
1 John 3:5)

The Quran too declares that Jesus was without sin. When the Angel Jibril (Gabriel) appeared to Mary to announce her conception of Jesus, he said:

I am only a messenger of your Lord, to announce to you a (ghulaaman-zakiyyan) faultless son (Surah 19:19).

The words used in Arabic to describe him are ghulaaman-zakiyyan, “a most-holy boy.” The word zakiyya, meaning “blameless,” appears only twice in the Quran.

The other occasion is in the story about Moses in which he met a young man who is described as being innocent. But in this case, the word was only referring to the young man’s innocence of any crime deserving of death (al-Kahf 18:74) , but in Jesus’ case, the angel was describing his whole personality and character before he was even born. “Faultless” or “blameless” clearly means without sin.

So the Quran confirms the biblical teaching that Jesus was the only sinless person who ever lived as the Quran nowhere describes anyone else in this way. On the contrary, the Quran acknowledges the sins of the other prophets and specifically refers to the sins of Adam (Sura 7:23), Abraham (26:82), Moses (28:16), Johan (37:142), and Muhammad (47:19, 48:2).

Sins of Adam (Sura 7:23)
They said, “Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, and if You do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers
.”

Abraham (26:82)
And who I aspire that He will forgive me my sin on the Day of Recompense.”

Moses (28:16)
He said, “My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me,” and He forgave him. Indeed, He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.

Johan (37:142)
Then the fish swallowed him, while he was blameworthy

Muhammad (47:1948:2)
So know, [O Muhammad], that there is no deity except Allah and ask forgiveness for your sin and for the believing men and believing women. And Allah knows of your movement and your resting place.

That Allah may forgive for you what preceded of your sin and what will follow and complete His favor upon you and guide you to a straight path.

In the case of Muhammad the Quran expressly commands him to ask forgiveness (wastaghfir) of his sins (dhanbika). The words used are employed throughout the Quran in the same context and there can be no doubt about their meaning, despite the subtle attempts of many Muslim commentators to reduce them to less imposing terms (such as to ask for “protection” from his “shortcomings”).

“One of Mohammad’s followers asked him if he could carry his sin for him. Mohammad admitted that he could not for the reason that he had his own sin (dhanbto carry. At the same time, Mohammad confessed that Jesus alone of those born on earth was exclusively born without being touched by the devil. Who then, can bear your sin, if not the sinless sin-bearer who came to die for you, that you need never die?”

The Hadith also records that Jesus was sinless. Muhammad himself believed this! Mary and her Son (Jesus) were the only ones whom Satan was unable to touch.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (saw) as saying: The satan touches every son of Adam on the day when his mother gives birth to him with the exception of Mary and her son (Jesus)Sahih Muslim (Vol 4, pg 1261)

Abu Huraira said, “I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘There is none born among the off-spring of Adam, but Satan touches it. A child therefore, cries loudly at the time of birth because of the touch of Satan, EXCEPT MARY AND HER CHILD.” Then Abu Huraira recited: “And I seek refuge with You for her and for her offspring from the outcast Satan” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 641; see also Volume 4, Book 54, Number 506)

The Quran confirms the Above :

Remember when a women of Imran said, ‘My Lord, I have vowed to Thee what is in my womb to be dedicated to Thy service. So do Thou accept it of me; Verily Thou alone art All-Hearing, All-Knowing.’ But when she was delivered of it, she said, ‘My Lord, I am delivered of a female,’ – and ALLAH knew best of what she was delivered and the male she desired to have was not like the female she was delivered of – ‘and I have named her Maryand I commit her and her offspring to Thy protection from Satan, the rejected.’ Quran Sura3:35-36.

Why is Jesus sinless? As we look in detail at the Quran further in this article, we can see that the only reasonable explanation is that he is the Son of God. Jesus taught that he and the Father are one (John 10:30), and he will, therefore, always do the will of the Father. If he did anything independently of the Father, he would no longer be one with him. One who is always doing the absolute will of his Father cannot be sinful—because, as the Son of God, he too is absolutely holy and always does what is pleasing to the Father (John 8:29).

Was Jesus the Word & Spirit of God

Though Jesus is mentioned by name in twenty-five places in the Quran he is also addressed with respect as:”ibne Maryam” – son of Mary;as messiah – translated as Christ; “abd-ullah” servant of Allah; “rasul -ullah” – messenger of Allah.

He is spoken of as “the word of god“, as “the spirit of god“, as a “sign of god“, the Quran honours this mighty messenger of god, and the Muslims have not fallen short over the past fourteen hundred years in doing the same. There is not a single disparaging remark in the entire Quran to which even the most jaundiced among the Christians can take exception.

Let see what the Quran has to say :

KallamaAllahuDirectly spoke to Allah
Roohi alqudusi – Holy Spirit 

Those messengers – some of them We caused to exceed others. Among them were those to whom Allah spoke, and He raised some of them in degree (darajatin). And We gave Jesus, the Son of Mary, clear proofs, and We supported him with the Holy Spirit (Roohi alqudusi). Quran 2:253

If Jesus was spoken in Quran as “The Word of God” and as “The Spirit of God” then there is no need for further discussion or any need for asking any questions because these two statements make Jesus automatically God.

Because no man can get this title of “Word of God” and “Spirit of God.”

These are titles of God and calling an ordinary manWord of God” and “Spirit of God amounts to blasphemy. When we look in the Bible we see that Jesus was called the “Word of God” in Bible too.

Word of God means very words of God that was spoken by God

In the Quran, we see that Jesus was spoken as “His Word” and “a Spirit proceeding from Him.” As we read further:

Quran : An-Nisa (Women), Sura 4:171

Christ Jesus (almaseehu eesa) the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word (kalimatin), which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers.

When the angels said, ‘Mary, Allah gives you good tidings of a Word from Him (kalimatin) whose name will be the Messiah, (almaseehu) Jesus, ‘eesa, Son of Mary; highly honored (wajeehanfee) in this world and the next, and of those brought near to Allah” (Quran : Al ‘Imran 3:45).

Let take a look at what the Bible say’s :

As it was explained to Mary by the angel, “the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God – Ibin-Allah” (Bible : Luke 1:35).

The above verse from the Quran Al ‘Imran 3:45 confirms what is said in the Bible verse above : Luke 1:35.

almaseehu” – al meaning Incomparable and unique, the one and only”.

What is a Messiah? A Messiah is always known as “a Saviour… a liberator and a deliverer.”

God had promised to send one (Messiah) to pay the debt of sin for all mankind. This means their is no need for rituals and animal sacrifice in order to pay for ones sins as this was a common practice at the time of Jesus and Muslim’s about continue to sacrifice animals on the day of Qurbani leading to Eid festivals.

The Messiah!… God’s gift to sinful manThe SaviourThe LiberatorOur Redeemer, (Pure Holy Spirit, al-Ruh al-QudsSinless).

The Arabic word ibin, however, is the word used for son throughout the Arabic translation of the Bible in reference to Jesusrelationship with GodIbin-Allah (Son of God) indicates a strong spiritual relationship between Jesus and God, a spiritual sonship in which Jesus was submissive and obedient to God as His Heavenly Father.

Jesus is called here, “His Word (kalimatin) and the Bible says the same thing :

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

 He was in the beginning with God :

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
(John 1:4)

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.(John 1:1-4)

In Arabic Jesus is called, “Kalamat Ullah,” the Word of God. He came out from God and came into the world as a human being. God in His sovereignty chose to reveal Himself to us through His Word – His Word, who became one of us and lived among us. In comparing Jesus Christ with the Adam, the Bible tells us,

The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.”
(1 Corinthians 15:47)

Verily, the likeness of ‘Eesa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then he said unto him, Be! And he is” (Qur’an 3:59)

Once again it is said of Jesus that he was created by God purely through the expression “Be” but this time it is said that “the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam“, implying that both were made by the single word of GodBe” in the same way. If Jesus is called the Word of God “Kalamat Ullah,” purely as a result of the manner of his conception, then Adam too must be the Word of God for according to the Qur’an they were both created in the same manner.

Now a real difficulty arises because Adam is not called the Word of God in the Qur’an. Nor are the angels, nor is any other creature so called in the Qur’an.

Jesus alone is called the Word of God – Kalamat Ullah. Hallelujah.

If you read the whole Bible you can see that Holy Spirit (Roohi alqudusi) is the Spirit of God.

Let’s look further what the Quran say’s :

Quran : Al-Ma’idah (The Table Spread), Sura 5:110

Then will Allah (God) say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favor to thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the Holy Spirit (roohi alqudusi), so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel. And behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and thou breathest into it and it becometh a bird by My leave, and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the Clear Signs, and the unbelievers among them said: ‘This is nothing but evident magic.’

According to the Qur’an only God can order living things to come into existence; “mere man can’t even produce a fly, Yet here is credited to him the creation of a bird.

The Bible further tells us that all things came into being through him (John 1:3).

The Qur’an also states that only God can bring the dead to life :

Lo! We it is Who bring the dead to life. We record that which they send before (them, and their footprints. And all things We have kept in a clear Register.
(Quran : 36:12), Surah 36 Ya-Sin: 12).

The above verse begins with “Lo! We“, Who is We : Allah (God) & Jesus.

Let ‘s see what the Bible has to say :

In the beginning was the Word [this title describes Jesus],
and the Word [Jesus] was with God [the Father and the Holy Spirit],
and the Word [Jesus] was God [having the same substance as the Father and the Holy Spirit].
He[Jesus] was with God [the Father and the Holy Spirit] in the beginning [when eternity began].
Through him [Jesus] all things were made [Jesus is the Creator of all life and substance];
without him nothing was made that has been made. . . .
The Word [Jesus] became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We [Peter, James and John] have seen his glory [on the Mount of Transfiguration], the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1-3, 14)

Above it states that Jesus had the power to do this, and the Bible records specifically that Jesus called Lazarus from the grave when he had been dead four days (John 11:43,44).

Jesus demonstrated on earth the eternal attributes and characteristics which God Himself displays. He exercised divine authority, knew the future as well as the inner thoughts of men’s hearts, lived a sinless life, remained changeless in His love, justice and righteousness, and performed miracles by the power of His own will. As He revealed the very nature of God through His life, Jesus explained,

I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me . . .
He who has seen Me has seen the Father . . .
no one comes to the Father, but through me
” (John 14:11, 9,6).

This verse also says that, God has a Spirit… So the fact is, if God has a spirit and God has a Word then, He is a triune God.

And Quran says that, “Jesus is the sign of God“. And the Bible says the same thing.

Isaiah the prophet prophesied more than 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ (almaseehu eesa) that God will give a sign as we read in Isaiah 7:14,

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”

Immanuel literally means “God is with us.” This is significant because Jesus is God in flesh:

Isaiah also declared, “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace,” (Bible : Isaiah 9:6).

The Bible makes it very clear that these titles are reserved for the Son of God (Ibin-Allah).

These verses clearly says that Jesus is the King of kings, Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace and there is no end of His government and peace. Jesus came from the lineage of David and as prophesied He is going to establish His kingdom forever when He will return. He is going to judge and rule justly. These are the qualities of God that was manifested in and through Jesus. Once again it proves that Jesus is the very God who came down in the form of a man to redeem us.

 

 

 

The Trinity in the Qur’an

 God, Jesus and Mary: The Trinity?

To all Muslim’s, open you minds and let’s think logical about the following verses from the Quran and read the Bible in order to understand what is the Trinity and what is the true essence of relationship between God & Jesus. I shall provide you verses coming from the Quran so you can further investigate for yourselves and please try to understand the Trinity before making any claims and dismissing it totally.

The word Trinity is not in the Bible. The concept clearly is. It begins at the beginning, when God said, “let us make man in OUR image” – Genesis 1:26, Our? Yes. God the Father, God the Son, God the holy spirit. This is woven throughout the entire Bible.


The Qur’an has its own version of the Christian Trinity:

And when Allah will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah? He will say: Glory be to Thee! it was not for me to say what I had no right to (say). If I had said it, Thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Thy mind. Surely Thou art the great Knower of the unseen – Qur’an 5:116

We read within the above verse : Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah, this is a concept of a Trinity involving Jesus & Mary.

Note how this strange verse does not mention the Trinity, but has Allah asking Jesus whether he told the people to take him and Mary for gods beside Allah. To which, Jesus repliedno, I did not; if I did you would have known about it anyway‘.

Why did Allah ask Jesus something he already knew Jesus did not do?
Quran Say’s : (and God knows all that you do openly, and all that you would conceal
Quran – 5:99)

Did Allah ask simply for the fun of it?
Or was he testing him?

If this was a test, why perform it at all, when one already knows the result? The circularity of this verse and its lack of logic is apparent.

A plausible explanation of Muhammad’s need to reconcile the Christian Trinity with Islam’s monotheism is given below.

As the readers may already know, a cursory reading of the Islamic scripture shows that the Quran distorted or was grossly mistaken about the beliefs of Jews and Christians.

For example, the Quran believes the Christians of holding certain theological and christological beliefs that do not correspond to the facts. The Quran erroneously assumes and condemns Christians for believing in three gods consisting of the Father, Mary his wife, and Jesus their offspring.

Thus, the Quran erroneously assumes that the implication of Christian beliefs is that God acquired a son through procreation, that God and Mary had sexual relations in order to have Jesus their Son (God forbid such horrendous blasphemy!).

 

The concept of Trinity is formed by God the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit.

1. Allah
2. Ibin-Allah (Son of God)
3. The Holy Spirit, al-Ruh al-Quds

These 3 are all attributes of God. Jesus is the Holy Spirit from God,
given the name
 “Son of Godof the most high.

Let see what the Quran say’s about

When the angels said, ‘Mary, Allah gives you good tidings of a Word from Him (kalimatin) whose name will be the Messiah, (almaseehu) Jesus, ‘Isa, Son of Mary; highly honored in this world and the next, and of those brought near to Allah” (Al ‘Imran 3:45).

almaseehu” – al meaning “Incomparable and unique, the one and only”.
What is a Messiah? A Messiah is always known as “a Saviour… a liberator and a deliverer.”
God had promised to send one (Messiah) to pay the debt of sin for all mankind.

The Messiah!… God’s gift to sinful man… The Saviour… The Liberator… Our Redeemer, (Pure Holy Spirit, al-Ruh al-Quds – Sinless).

 

Why do Christian attribute to Jesus the title SON OF GOD!!!.
Follow this link to find out :

“Why Do Christians Call Jesus the ‘Son of God’?”

 

I hope we are understanding the concept behind the Trinity.

The following verses in the Qur’an say about Mary(P) being the part of Trinity.

The possible Qur’anic references to the doctrine of “Trinity” are verses 4:1715:73

“Do not say anything about God except the truth: the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was nothing more than a messenger of God, His word, directed to Mary, a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers and do not speak of a ‘Trinity‘—stop, that is better for you—God is only one God, He is far above having a son” Qur’an, sura 4 (An-Nisa), ayat 171[2]

Those who say, “God is the Messiah, son of Mary,” have defied God. The Messiah himself said; “Children of Israel, worship God, my Lord and your Lord.” If anyone associates others with God, God will forbid him from the Garden, and Hell will be his home. No one will help such evildoers. Those people who say that God is the third of three are defying [the truth]: there is only One God Qur’an, sura 5 (Al-Ma’ida), ayat 72-75

Furthermore, verses 19:88-93, 23:91, and 112:1-4 are relevant to the doctrine of “Trinity“:

They say: “(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!” Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!  Qur’an, sura 19 (Maryam (sura)), ayat 88-93

No son did Allah beget, nor is there any god along with Him: (if there were many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have lorded it over others! Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the (sort of) things they attribute to Him! Qur’an, sura 23 (Al-Mumenoon), ayat 91

The Famous Surah said in the beginning of ever prayer the Muslim’s carry out as a testimony of the oneness of God :

Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him Qur’an, sura 112 (Al-Ikhlas)ayat 1-4,

In reality, Christians believe only in one God who is in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They do not believe that Mary is a part of the Trinity.

One of the main arguments of the Qur’an against the concept of God having a son is expressed in this passage:

How could He have a son when He does not have a companion (Wife) and He created all things
? Quran 6:101

Qur’an claims that it is impossible for Allah to have a son without having a consort and — this is certainly implied — having sex with this consort to produce the son. The Qur’an expects this question, How could He have a son when He has no consort?.

Muhammad misunderstood’ the true concept of Trinity, i.e, which says the Father (God – Allah), the Son (Jesus – Esa) and the Holy Spirit (al-Ruh al-Quds) – constitute the trinitarian godhead. Muhammad heard certain Christians make that there are three Gods, that is to say God the FatherMary, and Jesus. It is perfectly plain from these verses that Muhammad really did believe that the Bible inculcated belief in three separate Divine persons, Jesus and Mary being two of them.

The Bible do not interpret this word in the way the Qur’an suggests Christians do. Christian followers would be shocked and dismayed to know that the Qur’an
mis-represents their faith as it does. I certainly was when I first read the Qur’an.

As Muhammad failed to understand what “Son of God” signified, so today, many Muslims continue to misunderstand. As Muslims believe that the Quran is eternal, uncreated, and is the Word of God found in physical book form, they should be able to understand that Jesus is eternal, uncreated, and is the Living Word of God in physical living form.

There is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost is all one, the glory equal, and the majesty co-eternal…. The Father is God, the Son is God, the Holy Ghost is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God.”

Muslim scholars are quick to say that there are Churches or Catholics who worship Mary, Jesus earthly mother.
Mary is not worshiped but held high in honor. Let take a look what the Quran has to say about it :

When the angels said, ‘Mary, Allah has chosen you, and purified you; he has chosen you above all women in the worlds”(Al ‘Imran 3:42-43).

We read “he has chosen you above all women in the worlds” – Mary is one of the most honored figures in Christianity and she is viewed as one of the most righteous women to have lived.

In Islam the above verse about Mary is ignored and Mohammed and his wife’s are held in honor, (1st Wife Khathija, Last Wife Aisha). This show’s Muslim’s about show great ignorance in their own teachings.

The Bible clearly speaks of: God the Son, God the Father, and God the Holy Spirit. But emphasizes that there is only ONE God.

Let’s see what the Bible has to say about Mary :

Luke 1:28:
Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou among women!”


Let see what the
Bible has to say about the oneness of God :

 

John 1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.

Matthew 28:19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost
:

Deuteronomy 6:4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God [is] one LORD:

Isaiah 9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God.

1Cor. 8:4There is no God but one.

John 10:30 – Jesus said: “I and the Father are one.”

 

John 14:9He who has seen Me has seen the Father.”

Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said to her [Mary],The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God.”

 

Was Jesus a son of God
Was Jesus the Exalted Prophet

 

 

“Why Do Christians Call Jesus the ‘Son of God’?”

It may come as a surprise to the Muslim friend of a Christian to find out that both are offended by the same idea: that Jesus would be considered to be the physical son of God.

Since the time of Muhammad, Muslims have misunderstood this term Son of God to mean that Jesus was God’s Son through physical sonship, as a result of a physical relationship between God and Mary.

Although such an idea is as repugnant and blasphemous to Christians as it is to Muslims, nevertheless it has persisted in the minds of Muslims throughout the centuries.

It appears that this deep misunderstanding occurred throughout the confusion of two different terms for the word son. In Arabic, the word walad means “a physical boy born as a result of the marriage of a man and a woman.”

Of course, if this term is wrongly applied to the conception and birth of Jesus, it gives a totally false impression of physical sonship. However, it should be obvious that the sovereign God would have no physical relationship with a human being.

The Arabic word ibin, however, is the word used for son throughout the Arabic translation of the Bible in reference to Jesus‘ relationship with GodIbin-Allah (Son of God) indicates a strong spiritual relationship between Jesus and God, a spiritual sonship in which Jesus was submissive and obedient to God as His Heavenly Father.

It is important to understand that through this careful definition of sonship that Christians agree with the statements in the Qu’ran that God has no partners (a physical wife or physical son). Rather, Jesus was the Son of God in the sense that the Qur’an refers to Him as the Word of God (Kalamat Ullah) and the Spirit of God –
(
The Holy Spirit, al-Ruh al-Quds).

in the sense of a spiritual relationshipSon of God (Ibin-Allah) is a title reflecting this relationship.

In Arabic Jesus is called, “Kalamat Ullah,” the Word of God. He came out from God and came into the world as a human being. God in His sovereignty chose to reveal Himself to us through His Word – His Word, who became one of us and lived among us. In comparing Jesus Christ with the Adam, the Bible tells us,

The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.”
(1 Corinthians 15:47)

Verily, the likeness of ‘Eesa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust” (Qur’an 3:59)

The term “Son of God” does not mean that God had intercourse with Mary, or created sons for Himself, but that Jesus, as God, is the image of God, made manifest to men.

Let’s take a look at the Quran verses regarding Jesus the son of God :

Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth; how can He have a son when He has no consort (Wife)? He created all things, and He hath full knowledge of all things. — Qur’an 6:101

He (exalted be the glory of our Lord!) has taken no wife, nor has He begotten any children. The Blaspheming One among us has uttered a wanton falsehood against God, although we had supposed no man or jinee could tell of Him what is untrue.
— Qur’an 72:3

 The famous Surah “IKLAS“, read in all prayer as a testimony to the oneness of God :

[Qur’an 112:1-4]
[1] Say: Allah, the One and Only;  
[2] Allah, the Eternal, Absolute
[3] He begetteth not, nor is He begotten
[4] And there is none comparable unto Him.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”— John 3:16

[Jesus Christ] was … the Only Begotten Son in the fleshthe Redeemer of the world.

The Bible do not interpret this word in the way the Qur’an suggests Christians do. Christian followers would be shocked and dismayed to know that the Qur’an
mis-represents their faith as it does. I certainly was when I first read the Qur’an.

As Muhammad failed to understand whatSon of Godsignified, so today, many Muslims continue to misunderstand. As Muslims believe that the Quran is eternal, uncreated, and is the Word of God found in physical book form, they should be able to understand that Jesus is eternal, uncreated, and is the Living Word of God in physical living form.

In reference to the virgin Mary, the Qur’an states, “And she who was chaste, therefore We breathed into her of Our Spirit and made her and her son a sign for all peoples” (Quran : 91:21, Surah 21, Al-Anbiya, The Prophets: 91).

 At the same time, the Qur’an acknowledges that Jesus was born through the power of the Holy Spirit of God, not through any human agency:

And Mary, daughter of ‘Imran, whose body was chaste, therefore We breathed there in something of Our Spirit and made her and her son a sign for all peoples
(Quran : 91:21, Surah 21, Al-Anbiya, The Prophets: 91),
(Quran : 66:12, Surah 66, Al-Tahrim, Banning: 12).

Thus, in a spiritual sense, one who is born with God’s Spirit should be called God’s Son  (Ibin-Allah).

 

The unique birth of Jesus Christ, prophesied hundreds of years before, is one of the greatest supernatural events recorded in the Bible. The Old Testament prophet Isaiah foretold this miracle in Isaiah 7:14. This was 700 years before the birth of Jesus.

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.”

Immanuel literally meansGod is with us.” This is significant because Jesus is God in flesh:

Isaiah also declared, “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace,” (Bible : Isaiah 9:6).

The Bible makes it very clear that these titles are reserved for the Son of God  (Ibin-Allah).

The Bible states that this conception took place through the power of God Himself, not through any human or physical agency.

As it was explained to Mary by the angel, “the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God” (Bible : Luke 1:35).

Representative of those many passages is His response to some of the religious critics of His day:

Do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘
You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God‘?
If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe me;
but if I do them, though you do not believe Me,
believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me,
and I in the Father” (John 10:36-38).

Throughout the Qur’an, Jesus is given the title Son of Mary, indicating His human connection, while in the gospels of the New Testament the term Son of man is used for this purpose.

The prophet Muhammad plainly indicates that Jesus was much more than an ordinary prophet, giving Him a unique position wherever He is mentioned throughout the Qur’an. Not only does the Qur’an indicate that His conception and birth were miraculous, but it also states that He performed many miracles:

When Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favour unto thee and unto thy mother; how I strengthened thee with the Holy Spirit, so that thou speakest unto mankind in the cradle as in maturity; and how I taught thee the Scripture and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and how thou didst shape of clay as it were the likeness of a bird by My permission, and didst blow upon it, and it was a bird by My permission, and thou did heal him who was born blind and the leper by My permission; and how thou didst raise the dead by My permission; and how I restrained the Children of Israel from [harming] these when thou camest unto them with clear proofs, and those of them who disbelieved exclaimed” (Quran : 5:110), Surah 5, Al-Ma’idah, The Table Spread: 110).

According to the Qur’an only God can order living things to come into existence; “mere man can’t even produce a flyYet here is credited to him the creation of a bird.

The Bible further tells us that all things came into being through him (John 1:3).

The Qur’an also states that only God can bring the dead to life :
Lo! We it is Who bring the dead to life. We record that which they send before (them, and their footprints. And all things We have kept in a clear Register.
(
Quran : 36:12), Surah 36 Ya-Sin: 12).

Above it states that
Jesus had the power to do this, and the Bible records specifically that Jesus called Lazarus from the grave when he had been dead four days (John 11:43,44).

Jesus demonstrated on earth the eternal attributes and characteristics which God Himself displays. He exercised divine authority, knew the future as well as the inner thoughts of men’s hearts, lived a sinless life, remained changeless in His love, justice and righteousness, and performed miracles by the power of His own will. As He revealed the very nature of God through His life, Jesus explained,

I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me . . .
He who has seen Me has seen the Father . . .
no one comes to the Father, but through me
” (John 14:11, 9,6).

(“Son of God” does not mean that God had physical relations with Mary, but rather that God willed it supernaturally that Mary would become the earthly mother of Jesus even as a virgin. See Quran Surah 3:47-48)

She said, “My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?” [The angel] said, “Such is Allah ; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.

Conclusion :

Jesus is shown to have qualities and titles that no one else has such as being the only person called God’s Word and honored in this world and the hereafter.

Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! God giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to God. (Quran 3:45-51).

Then two nations will emerge, Britain & America, whose religion will be Christianity, and they will attain supremacy in every field. So when you see that the Christian faith and Christian governments have spread throughout the world, know that the time of the promise is near.
