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!!!.

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).

Allah has given you a free will. YOU must make a choice. You cannot be neutral.

To all Muslim’s, Open your minds and read the Bible as Muslim’s about judge and say “Bible is fabricated and corrupted” without even reading the Bible. These are the Mosques in Britain & America continue to spread false corrupted beliefs without fully understanding the relationship between GodAllah with Jesus Christ.

(“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).

Many religions will spread in the world, and there will be many sects. 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.

 

Mohammed was Sinful mentions in the QURAN

There are basically two reasons for the rise of this doctrine.

Firstly, the early Muslims soon discovered that the Bible taught plainly that Jesus was the only sinless man that ever lived and, confronted with this evidence, deemed it necessary to invent the fiction that all the prophets — especially Muhammad — were sinless as well. A superiority of Jesus over Muhammad could not be tolerated and, just as miracles were attributed to the figurehead of Islam to give him a status at least equal to that of Jesus, so he was also held to be sinless for the same purpose.

Secondly, the doctrine of revelation in Islam holds that the scriptures were dictated directly to the prophets by the intermediary angel (Gabriel) and it was therefore believed that the prophets must have possessed an impeccable character for, if they could not keep themselves from error in their personal lives, how could they be trusted to communicate God’s revelation without error?

This latter presupposition led perforce to the conclusion that the prophets must have been sinless.”

The Quranic word used in these verses for sin is “dhanb“, or “thanb“, depending on how one transliterates the word.

Both Islam and Christianity teach that Jesus was not a sinner. In the Bible, it is explicitly stated that Jesus had no sin.


THE QURANIC EVIDENCE THAT MUHAMMAD WAS A SINNER

In the night’s stillness, far from the crowd and alone with the thoughts of his heart, a man prays confessing the truth he knows within his soul:

Oh God, I acknowledge and confess before You, all my sins, please forgive them, as no one can forgive sins except You. Forgive my mistakes, those done intentionally, or out of my ignorance, with or without seriousness. Oh God, forgive my sins and my ignorance, forgive my sins of the past and of the future, which I did openly or secretly. Forgive the wrong I have done, jokingly or seriously. I seek Your protection from all the evil I have done. Wash away my sins, and cleanse my heart, from all the sins as a white garment is cleansed from the filth, and let there be long distance between me and my sins, as You made the East and West far from each other.”
!
That prayer expressed a heart that understood the depth of sin in its soul. It acknowledges a nature within that is bent towards sin. And it reflects the desire to cleanse that depth of sin. We hear in that prayer a man’s struggle with sin. He asks forgiveness for his past and future sins, because he knows that as a normal man, he is going to sin. It is inevitable. He asks for forgiveness for things he has done intentionally, and unintentionally. He asks forgiveness for mistakes and sins, those done intentionally or unintentionally. He knows that the sins he committed are “evil“, and confesses that to God. He does not make light of his sins. The sins he committed are “filth” in God’s eyes.

That prayer was prayed by Muhammad. It is a synthesis of his personal prayers found in Sahih Bukhari Volume 8: #s 335, 379, 407, and 408.

Muhammad knew clearly he was a sinner; thus he makes his confession public. Over and over again he stated he was a sinner. The Quran he spoke identifies him as a sinner. Yet many Muslims today say that Muhammad was not a sinner.

QUESTION: Muhammad said he was a sinner, why do many Muslims contradict Muhammad and say he is not a sinner?

Before addressing that question, let us examine the later Muslim’s argument that he was not a sinner. And, let us examine Quranic / Hadith evidence that Muhammad was a sinner.

Many Muslims believe that Allah gives a special protection to his prophets from being “sinners“.


The Quran identifies Muhammad as a sinner
: 40:55, 48:2, and 47:19 We should let the Quran interpret itself.

40:55So be patient, [O Muhammad]. Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth. And ask forgiveness for your sin and exalt [ Allah ] with praise of your Lord in the evening and the morning.

48:1 … Indeed, We have given you, [O Muhammad], a clear conquest

48:2so that God may forgive you your past and future sins, and perfect His goodness to you; …
!
Below is the Quran 47:19 in five English translations, (NOTE: Muhammad is asking for forgiveness for both himself and his followers).

Sahih International
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.

Muhsin Khan
So know (O Muhammad SAW) that La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women. And Allah knows well your moving about, and your place of rest (in your homes).

Pickthall
So know (O Muhammad) that there is no Allah save Allah, and ask forgiveness for thy sin and for believing men and believing women. Allah knoweth (both) your place of turmoil and your place of rest.

Shakir
So know that there is no god but Allah, and, ask protection for your fault and for the believing men and the believing women; and Allah knows the place of your returning and the place of your abiding.

Dr. Ghali
So know that there is no god except Allah, and ask forgiveness for your guilty deed, and for the male believers and female believers; and Allah knows your moving about and your lodging.

Yusuf Ali
Know, therefore, that there is no god but Allah, and ask forgiveness for thy fault, and for the men and women who believe: for Allah knows how ye move about and how ye dwell in your homes.


Clearly the Quran identifies Muhammad as a sinner. It is definitely applied to Muhammad. Since some Muslims argue that Muhammad was not a sinner, they have to resort to re-interpreting the Quranic word, “dhanb“. So, what does that word “dhanb” mean in the context of the Quran? We have to address the true meaning of this word — is it “sin“, meaning something that God will judge, or is it “fault” defined as meaning something that is very minor and easily excusable by God?

To understand the context of the word, we should let the context of how the word is used throughout the Quran speak.

I have found the word used about 39 times in the Quran. In some cases it is used without a reference, e.g. 3:31, “Say, “If you love God, follow me. God will love you and forgive your sins…”. We have no reference as to what those “sins” consisted.

However, “dhanb” is used many other times with a contextual reference. I encourage all Muslims to search through their Quran to find an example of Allah lightly treating “dhanb“. Study the Quran to find something contrary to the harsh judgement that Allah proscribes to those who commit of “dhanb“. I have found none.

I present 3 of them because I want to establish exactly the Quran’s severity of this word :

3:11 (Their plight will be) no better than that of the people of Pharaoh and their predecessors: they denied Our Signs and Allah called them to account for their sins. For Allah is strict in punishment.

Allah called Pharaoh’s people to account for their sins, and they were punished for their “dhanb.

3:16 (Namely) those who say: “Our Lord! we have indeed believed: forgive us then our sins and save us from the agony of the fire.”

Here we see people asking forgiveness for their “dhanb” because without forgiveness of their “dhanb” they will end up in the agony of fire (hell).

5:18 (Both) the Jews and the Christians say: “We are sons of Allah and His beloved.” Say: “Why then doth He punish you for your sins? Nay ye are but men,- of the men He hath created: He forgiveth whom He pleaseth and He punisheth whom He pleaseth: and to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between: and unto Him is the final goal (of all).”

Here Muhammad is saying that Christians and Jews are being punished by Allah for the “dhanb“. Thus their “dhanb” earns punishment from Allah, not a wink of an eye.


Let’s review. “Dhanb” is translated as sin, crime, & fault. How does Allah deal with people who have committed dhanb? Allah –

And remember, Muhammad committed “dhanb“. Muhammad was told to ask forgiveness for his “dhanb“. And Muhammad taught in the Quran that forgiveness of “dhanb” was required to get into Paradise. Otherwise, a person with unforgiven “dhanb” ends up in hell.


EVIDENCE FROM THE HADITH 
THAT MUHAMMAD WAS A SINNER :

Earlier I synthesized portions from Muhammad’s prayers, recorded in Bukhari’s Hadith. Here are the four Hadith in full. 

In these prayers, Muhammad uses a different word for sin. Instead of using “dhanb“, he uses the root word “khati’a“.

The Encyclopedia of Islam defines Khati’a as:

“Moral lapse, sin, a synonym of dhanb. The root means “to fail, stumble“, “make a mistake“, “of an archer whose arrow misses the target“.

8.335 : Narrated Shaddad bin ‘Aus: The Prophet said, “The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is:

Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta. Khalaqtani wa ana ‘abduka, wa ana ‘ala ‘ahdika wa Wa’dika mastata’tu abu’u Laka bi ni ‘matika wa abu’u Laka bidhanbi; faghfirli fa’innahu la yaghfiru-dh-dhunuba ill a ant a. A’uidhu bika min sharri ma sana’tu.’ If somebody recites this invocation during the night, and if he should die then, he will go to Paradise (or he will be from the people of Paradise). And if he recites it in the morning, and if he should die on the same day, he will have the same fate.”

The Arabic is translated as:

Oh Allah! You are my Lord. None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me, and I am your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as much as I can. I acknowledge before You , all the blessings You have bestowed upon me and confess to You all my sins, so please forgive them, as no one can forgive sins except You. And I seek refuge in You from all the evil I have done.”

 

8.379 : Narrated ‘Aisha :

The Prophet used to say, “O Allah! I seek refuge with You from laziness and geriatric old age, from all kinds of sins and from being in debt; from the affliction of the Fire and from the punishment of the Fire and from the evil of the affliction of wealth; and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of poverty, and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal. O Allah! Wash away my sins with the water of snow and hail, and cleanse my heart from all the sins as a white garment is cleansed from the filth, and let there be a long distance between me and my sins, as You made East and West far from each other.”

 

8.407 : Narrated Abu Musa: The Prophet used to invoke Allah with the following invocation: ‘Rabbi-ghfir-li Khati ‘ati wa jahli wa israfi fi amri kullihi, wa ma anta a’lamu bihi minni. Allahumma ighfirli khatayaya wa ‘amdi, wa jahli wa jiddi, wa kullu dhalika’indi. Allahumma ighrifli ma qaddamtu wa ma akhartu wa ma asrartu wa ma a’lantu. Anta-l-muqaddimu wa anta-l-mu’akh-khiru, wa anta ‘ala kulli shai’in qadir.’

The Arabic is translated as :

O my Lord! Forgive my sins and my ignorance and my exceeding the limits of righteousness in all my deeds and what you know better than I. O Allah. Forgive my mistakes, those done intentionally or out of my ignorance or without or with seriousness, and I confess that all such mistakes are done by me. O Allah! Forgive my sins of the past and of the future with I did openly or secretly. You are the One Who makes the things go before and You are the One Who delays them, and You are the Omnipotent.”

 

8.408 : Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari: The Prophet used to invoke Allah, saying, “Allahumma ighfirli khati‘ati wa jahli wa israfi fi amri, wa ma anta a-‘lamu bihi minni. Allahumma ighfirli hazali wa jiddi wa khata’i wa amdi, wa kullu dhalika ‘indi.”

The Arabic is translated as :

O Allah! Forgive my mistakes and my ignorance and my exceeding the limit (boundaries) of righteousness in my deeds; and forgive whatever You know better than I. O Allah! Forgive the wrong I have done jokingly or seriously, and forgive my accidental and intentional errors, all that is present in me.”

Muhammad acknowledged he was a sinner. Don’t Muhammad’s prayers for forgiveness establish the fact that he knew how severe his sins were? He knew Allah punishes sin, and that is why he was always pleading for forgiveness from Allah. Muhammad didn’t want to burn in hell for his crimes.

And, Muhammad did believe and fear he was going to suffer:


Sahih Muslim, [10], Book 4, Number 1212
:

Narrated Aisha:

The Prophet entered my house when a Jewess was with me and she was saying: Do you know that you would be put to trial in the grave? The Messenger of Allah trembled (on hearing this) and said: It is the Jews only who would be put to trial. Aisha said: We passed some nights and then the Messenger of Allah said: Do you know that it has been revealed to me: “You would be put to trial in the grave”? Aisha said: I heard the Messenger of Allah seeking refuge from the torment of the grave after this.”

Allah “revealed” to Muhammad he would be put to trial in the grave. Muhammad constantly prayed for refuge from his upcoming torment. Why?
If Muhammad were so pure and innocent, why would Allah be tormenting him in the grave? Muhammad was aware of his sins, and thus, he prayed for forgiveness.


John 8:32 : “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Muslims—What does the Qur’an say about Isa (Jesus)?

Over 1400 years ago, Muhammad (Mohammed) was born in Arabia. His father Abdullah was of the tribe of Qureyshi, and died before Muhammad was born.

As a lad, Muhammad traveled to Syria with his uncle on merchant caravans. Years later, he made the same journey while working for a wealthy widow named Khadijah. He later married her and, even though he was 15 years younger than she was, they had a good marriage.

Muhammad soon gained rank among the notables of Mecca. The Meccans claimed to be descendants of Abraham (Ibrahim).

As one who abhorred evil, Muhammad detested those who disobeyed the Scriptures. He was familiar with the teachings of the Jewish and Christian holy book the Bible (perhaps in reading it himself, if he was literate, or in learning of it through oral means via storytelling). He was very upset with the hypocrisy among the people: the idol worship, and anything dishonoring to God was very revolting to Him.

He believed that Allah had revealed the Torah and the gospels (the Injil).
!

ALLAH is HE besides Whom there is none worthy of worship, the Living, the Self-Subsisting and All-Sustaining. HE has sent down to thee the Book containing the truth and fulfilling that which precedes it; and HE has sent down the Torah (Law of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guidance to the people; and HE has sent down the Discrimination (judgement between right and wrong).”— Qur’an, Surah 3:3-4

One who was greatly respected by Muhammad was Abraham (Ibrahim), whom he called an upright and righteous man.

Abraham was indeed a paragon of virtue, obedient to ALLAH, ever inclined to HIM, and he was not of those who set up equals with ALLAH; Ever grateful for HIS favors: HE chose him and guided him to a straight path. And WE bestowed on him good in this world, and in the Hereafter he will surely be among the righteous. And now WE have sent revelation to thee, enjoining, ‘Follow the way of Abraham who was ever inclined to ALLAH and was not of those who set up equals to HIM.'”— Qur’an, Surah 16:121-124

Abraham was also looked upon as one who fulfilled God’s commands:

And remember when his Lord tried Abraham with certain commandments which he fulfilled, HE said, ‘I will make thee a leader of men.’ Abraham asked, ‘And from among my offspring?’ God said, ‘MY covenant does not embrace the transgressors.'”— Qur’an, Surah 2:125

Muhammad also had great understanding of the scriptures and faith in the angels who told Zechariah he would have a son (as in Luke 1:18, 57-60).

So her Lord accepted her with gracious acceptance and caused her to grow an excellent growth and made Zachariah her guardian. Whenever Zachariah visited her in the chamber, he found with her provisions. He said, ‘O Mary whence hast thou this ?’ She replied, ‘It is from ALLAH.’ Surely ALLAH gives to whomsoever HE pleases without measureQur’an, Surah 3:37

Then and there did Zachariah pray to his Lord, saying, ‘My Lord grant me from Thyself pure offspring; surely thou art the Hearer of Prayer.’

And the angels called to him as he stood praying in the chamber, ‘ALLAH gives thee glad tidings of Yahya, who shall testify to the truth of a word from ALLAH – noble and chaste and a Prophet, from among the righteous’. Quran 3:39

He said ‘My Lord, how shall I have a son, when old age has overtaken me already, and my wife is barren?’ He answered, ‘Such is the way of ALLAH; HE does what HE pleases,’ Quran 3:40

He said ‘My Lord, give me a commandment.’ He replied, ‘The commandment for thee is that thou shalt not speak to men for three days except by signs’. Quran 3:41

And remember thy Lord much and glorify HIM in the evening and in the early morning.’ And remember when the angels said, “O MARY” ‘ALLAH has chosen thee and purified thee and chosen thee above all women of the time‘. Quran 3:42

O Mary, be obedient to thy Lord and prostrate thyself and worship the one God with those who worship HIM.’ Quran 3:43

‘This is of the tidings of things unseen which WE reveal to thee. And thou was not with them when they cast their arrows, as to which of them should be the guardian of Mary, nor was thou with them when they disputed with one another’. Quran 3:44

When the angels said, ‘O Mary, ALLAH gives thee glad tidings of a son through a word from HIM (kalimullah) ; his name shall be the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, honoured in this world and in the next, and of those who are granted nearness to God’; Quran 2:253

And he shall speak to the people in the cradle, and when of middle age, and he shall be of the righteous’. Quran 3:46

Jesus started preaching at age 12, he would preach in the temples, and when Mary and Joseph went looking for him one day, they found him in one of the temples. When Mary said that they were looking for him everywhere, he said “Why are you looking for me everywhere, do you not know that I am in my fathers house?” Bible 2:39-49

 

She said, ‘My Lord, how shall I have a son, when no man has touched me? He said, ‘Such is the way of ALLAH. HE creates what HE pleases. When HE decrees a thing HE says to it ‘Be,’ and it is;”— Qur’an, Surah 3:47

Muhammad also speaks of the resurrection of Jesus:

“Thereupon she pointed to him. They said, ‘How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?’ Jesus said, ‘I am a servant of ALLAH. HE has given me the Book, and has made me a Prophet; ‘And HE has made me blessed where soever I may be, and has enjoined upon me Prayer and almsgiving so long as I live; ‘And HE has made me dutiful towards my mother, and has not made me arrogant and graceless; ‘And peace was on me the day I was born, and peace will be on me the day I shall die, and the day I shall be raised up to life again.’ That was Jesus, son of Mary. This is a statement of the truth concerning which they entertain doubt.”— Qur’an, Surah 19:30-35

In calling Jesus a messenger, Muhammad was also correct. He did not mean that Jesus was not the Messiah. Muhammad knew that one could be a messenger and not be a Messiah… but as The Messiah, one is also a messenger.

Jesus was both a messenger and The Messiah that Allah had promised! What is a Messiah? A Messiah is always known as “a Saviora 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 SaviorThe Liberator Our Redeemer. The prophets of the Torah foretold of His coming. Muhammad and his Disciples revered Him… the Qur’an and the Bible reveal Him! The MessiahThe Savior of the world! Neither the Qur’an nor the Bible speak of any other as being the Messiah!!!

“So peace be upon me the day I was born, the day I die, and the day I get resurrected.Quran 19:33

“Jesus the sign of Hour :Jesus shall be a Sign for the coming of the Hour of Judgement : Therefore have no doubt about the Hour, but follow Me: this is the Straight Way”. (Quran 43:61)

“Jesus raised to God in the Heavens & Coming of Jesus :Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise”. (Quran 4:158)

“And there is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death. And on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness”. (Quran 4:159)

 

Dear friend, that is the most profound truth! And it is truth that cannot be denied. Jesus is the one and only Messiah. He is the Saviour. He is the Messiah of the Muslims, the Jews, and the Gentiles. Millions throughout the world of every nation and creed accept Him as Saviour.

Many have followed false Messiahs and had their lives ended in death. They were sincere, but they were sincerely wrong. Had they only accepted the indisputable claim that Jesus is the Messiah, they would have found the peace that they were looking for, and the eternal life that God has promised to all who will accept Jesus as Messiah… the Savior of the world. Yes, Jesus – Messiah loves you! The Messiah that Muhammad wrote about… to forgive you and to be your Savior… your Liberator… your Deliverer from sin. History tells us that He was crucified and died on a cross.

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 [or it 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 Allah 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.
Muslims claim it is from Allah and that it denies the death of Jesus. 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


History tells us that three days later there was an empty tomb. History, and hundreds of eye witnesses, tell us that He rose from the dead. But sadly many also reject the love and forgiveness God has offered in Jesus.

It is obvious that no one but Jesus could have fulfilled these prophecies. The prophecies absolutely preclude any still future Messiah, except that even that hope also will find its fulfillment in the second coming of Christ.

And then, of course, there are still hundreds of other prophecies, all of which were fulfilled by Jesus Christ:

His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14);
His birth in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2);
His sacrificial death (Isaiah 53:5);
His crucifixion (Psalm 22:14-18);
His bodily resurrection (Psalm 16:10);  and many others. 

Allah has given you a free will. YOU must make a choice. You cannot be neutral.

Don’t take this writer’s Ash Salman word for it. Investigate for yourself the claims of Muhammad, the prophecies in the Torah, and the life of Jesus written in the Bible. The prophecies that were fulfilled by His birth, life, death and resurrection.

Check out the reasons why Paul, the greatest persecutor of Jesus‘ followers, became such a strong believer in Jesus as the Messiah… and why he became the world’s greatest missionary.

If you are not already a follower of Isah (Jesus), you must make a choice :

(1) to believe that Jesus is the Messiah
or
(2) to reject Him as Saviour. You can choose to believe the Messiah, Jesus, who said He would, and did, rise from the dead. Allah gave Jesus, born miraculously through Mary (Maryam, Sura 3:45) as Muhammed agreed, to the world… for you.

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

All of these unite in their witness that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God” (John 20:31).

(“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 Surah 3:47-48)

https://wiki-islam.org/2014/06/08/the-trinity-in-the-quran/

Jesus loves you. How could anyone want to reject such a wonderful love… reject God’s forgiveness… His promises of eternal life?

The Bible teaches how we can know where we will spend eternity.

Jesus is the most Exalted of all or is it Mohammed

Muslims, and certain Islamic narrations, claim that Muhammad is the most exalted of all of Allah’s creatures. They believe that Allah has preferred Muhammad to the rest of the prophets and messengers.

However, the Quran does not substantiate this assertion since there is someone else who is presented as being more exalted than Muhammad. In fact, this someone else is presented as superior to all other prophets according to the Quran.

For instance, when the Quran mentions that Allah has preferred some apostles above certain others it specifically mentions Jesus and David:

Those apostles We endowed with gifts, some above others: To one of them God spoke; others He raised to degrees (of honour); to Jesus the son of Mary We gave clear (Signs), and strengthened him with the holy spirit. If God had so willed, succeeding generations would not have fought among each other, after clear (Signs) had come to them, but they (chose) to wrangle, some believing and others rejecting. If God had so willed, they would not have fought each other; but God Fulfilleth His plan. S. 2:253 Y. Ali

And it is your Lord that knoweth best all beings that are in the heavens and on earth: We did bestow on some prophets more (and other) gifts than on others: and We gave to David (the gift of) the Psalms. S. 17:55 Y. Ali

Notice that Muhammad is not mentioned by name in either one of the citations. We shall see that it is not a coincidence that Jesus and David are mentioned instead.

This next text supposedly quotes David and Solomon as saying:

And We gave David and Solomon knowledge and they said, ‘Praise belongs to God who has preferred us over many of His believing servants.’ S. 27:15 Arberry

Thus, Allah has preferred David and Solomon above many of his servants. As anyone reading the NT already knows, Jesus is a descendant of David:

the gospel concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the fleshRomans 1:3

Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descended from David, as preached in my gospel,” 2 Timothy 2:8

By stating that Allah exalted David, the Quran is basically agreeing that God chose Jesus’ ancestors above all the rest, a point confirmed by this next text:

Lo! Allah preferred Adam and Noah and the Family of Abraham and the Family of ‘Imran above (all His) creatures. They were descendants one of another. Allah is Hearer, Knower. (Remember) when the wife of ‘Imran said: My Lord! I have vowed unto Thee that which is in my belly as a consecrated (offering). Accept it from me. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Hearer, the Knower! And when she was delivered she said: My Lord! Lo! I am delivered of a female – Allah knew best of what she was delivered – the male is not as the female; and lo! I have named her Mary, and lo! I crave Thy protection for her and for her offspring from Satan the outcast. S. 3:33-36 Pickthall

The family of Imran whom Allah chose above all creatures is supposed to be the family of Jesus, specifically his mother’s parents. The Quran even identifies Mary as Imran’s daughter:

And Mary the daughter of ‘Imran, who guarded her chastity; and We breathed into (her body) of Our spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and of His Revelations, and was one of the devout (servants). S. 66:12 Y. Ali

Moreover, Islamic traditions state that Allah answered the prayer of Jesus’ grandmother by making him and his mother the only ones whom Satan was unable to touch upon their births:

Narrated Said bin Al-Musaiyab:

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” (3.36) (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 641; see also Volume 4, Book 54, Number 506)

But the Quran doesn’t stop there since it goes on to say that Jesus’ blessed mother is the most exalted of all women:

And when the angels said, ‘Mary, God has chosen thee, and purified thee; He has chosen thee above all women. S. 3:42 Arberry

In the same Sura, Jesus is shown to have qualities and titles that no one else has such as being the only person called God’s Word (Kalimatin) and honoured in the next life:

“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 honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to God; He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. And he shall be (of the company) of the righteous.” She said: “O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?” He said: “Even so: God createth what He willeth: When He hath decreed a plan, He but saith to it, ‘Be,’ and it is! And God will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel, And (appoint him) an apostle to the Children of Israel, (with this message): ‘I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God’s leave: And I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I quicken the dead, by God’s leave; and I declare to you what ye eat, and what ye store in your houses. Surely therein is a Sign for you if ye did believe; (I have come to you), to attest the Law which was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was (Before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear God, and obey me. It is God Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him. This is a Way that is straight.’” 3:45-51 Y. Ali

Here is what we have thus far gathered from the teaching of the Quran:

Allah has preferred some messengers above others.
David and Solomon are some of those messengers that Allah has chosen above the rest.
David is Jesus’ ancestor.
Allah has chosen Imran’s family above all creatures.
Imran is said to be Mary’s father, Jesus’ grandfather.
Allah has chosen Jesus’ mother Mary above all women.
Jesus is the only person explicitly said to be honored in the next world.
Jesus is given specific attributes and titles that are not given to any other messenger.

What this all means is that it is not Muhammad that is the most exalted creature of all according to the Quran. Rather, Jesus is the one messenger, the one person, whom Allah has preferred and exalted above all the others. Allah has conferred upon Christ and his family an honor that has not been given to anyone else.

We aren’t the only ones seeing it this way since there is one moderate Muslim writer who candidly admits that, according to the Quran, Jesus is the greatest of all prophets.

Dr. Nader Pourhassan, after citing surah’s 2:253, 3:4246, and 59, says that:

Muslim religious leaders try to isolate Muhammad from all other prophets by saying, “God kept the best for last.” Again, this directly contradicts the Quran’s teachings. The Quran says that some prophets have been given more than others – that some even talk to God. The example it gives is that of Jesus Christ, not Muhammad

These passages clearly show that God considered Jesus to be His best prophet, not Muhammad. After all, Jesus revealed himself to be a prophet from childhood, while Muhammad was not inspired until he was forty years old.

The Quran relates a number of miracles from Jesus‘ childhood, but says nothing of this phase of Muhammad’s life. The name “Christ” is also used. Unlike Jesus, Muhammad was not a special messenger of God, but a mere helper, who brought justice to the world, and glorified the name of Jesus by setting the record straight about his deeds on earth. His mission was also to eliminate the corruption of the message of those prophets who had gone before him. On the other hand, of Jesus it is said that he was created in a similar way to Adam

Quran teaches that Jesus was God’s best prophet, and that Believers of Jesus Christ will be placed above non-believers until the Day of Judgment

Muslim religious leaders claim that Muhammad was the greatest prophet ever sent. If this was true, then God would have stated so in the Quran. Instead, when God talks of a prophet being greater than others, the name He mentions is that of Jesus

In a moment of passion the people loved this God, loved Jesus, not for the promise of power, but in response to the great outpouring of his life and ministry, in response to healing and justice, forgiveness and touch, sharing and vision, the outpouring of life even in the midst of death.

 

I couldn’t have put it any better!

Why Did Jesus Say to Pluck Out Our Eye If It Offends

Us (Matthew 5:27-30)?

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’
28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 
29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell.

Christ does not intend for us to take this instruction literally. Jesus does not want sinners to become physically handicapped. Because sin begins in the mind, the eye, the hand, or the foot cannot sin of and by themselves. Even without these body parts, a person can still sin.

Our Savior often employs figures of speech in His preaching. Here, He is simply using parts of the body to elucidate an important principle—that a believer should not tolerate sin in his life. Once a sin becomes apparent, we should take immediate steps to eliminate it from our lives. By using the striking example of amputation, Christ also illustrates that the process of overcoming sin may be as painful as losing an arm, a leg, or an eye. Ultimately, it is far better to give up a sinful pleasure than to lose out on salvation (Hebrews 11:23-26).

The apostle Paul expands Jesus’ instruction in Colossians 3:1-17.

17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

QURAN – JESUS IS ALIVE WITH GOD

(KORAN 3,55;4,158,159)

3:55

[Mention] when Allah said, “O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and
purify you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allah
alone] superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return,
and I will judge between you concerning that in which you used to differ“.

Jesus was the MessiahAllah’s anointed messenger.
Allah’s people (Muslims)
are told to listen to Allah’s messengers
(Quran,
4
.171; 5. 111*).

O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion
or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son
of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He
directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him.
So believe in Allah and His messengers
. 4:171

And do not say, “Three”; desist – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah
is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs
whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth.
And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. 5:111


ALLAH TOOK JESUS TO HEAVEN WHERE HE AWAITS UNTIL THE
DAY OF JUDGMENT WHEN HE WILL RETURN TO EARTH (3,55).

[Mention] when Allah said, “O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you
from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allah alone] superior
to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, and I will judge
between you concerning that in which you used to differ. 3:55

The Koran tells how Allah anointed Jesus, through a virgin
birth to be the
Messiah – Savior of the world, nearly five
hundred and fifty years before
Muhammad
was born.
