Jesus in Islam

  Islam is the only non-Christian faith which makes an article of faith to believe in Jesus (pbuh). In Islam No Muslim is a Muslim if he don’t believe in Jesus(pbuh). In summary this what we Muslims believe about Jesus (pbuh)

Ø  We believe him as a mightiest messenger if God.

Ø  We believe him as the Messiah in translation as the Christ.

Ø  We believe him as the word of God.

Ø  We believe in his miraculous birth (virgin birth) which even many modern day Christians don’t believe.

Ø  We believe in the miracles did by him like healing the born blind and lepers with the permission of God

Ø   We believe that he gave life to the death with the permission of God.

 A person may ask, if both Muslims and Christians love and respect Jesus (PBUH), where exactly is the separation point? The major difference between Islam and Christianity regarding Jesus (pbuh) is in mainly two places.

        I.             Our Christian  brothers believe Jesus (pbuh) as God as well as the son of God. (Is Jesus (pbuh) is God? , Is Jesus (pbuh) is son of God?) But we Muslims believe in a pure monotheistic God (no trinity) who has got no idols, no images, no family…

      II.            Our Christian brothers believe Jesus (pbuh) was crucified and died for the sin of humankind whereas we Muslims believe that Jesus (pbuh) was not crucified but it appeared to the Jews who tried to kill them like he was crucified. In Islam there is nothing called Origin sin, every child born in the face of the earth are born sinless. So no one have to die for your sin but your responsible for your sin and good-deeds.


Quran verses about Jesus (pbuh)

Virgin birth in Quran

 He said: "Nay, I am only a Messenger from Thy Lord, (to announce) to Thee the gift of a holy son. she said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?". He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint Him As a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us':It is a matter (so) decreed." (Marry, 19:19-21, The holy Quran)

He Was Righteous

"Behold! the angels said, 'Oh Mary! God gives you 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 in (the company of) those nearest to God. He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. He shall be (in the company) of the righteous... And God will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel'" (3:45-48, The holy Quran).


He Was a Prophet

"Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how God makes His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!" (5:75, The holy Quran).

"He [Jesus] said: 'I am indeed a servant of God. He has given me revelation and made me a prophet; He has made me blessed wheresoever I be; and He has enjoined on me prayer and charity as long as I live. He has made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable. So 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)!' Such was Jesus the son of Mary. It is a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute. It is not befitting to (the majesty of) God that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He determines a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is" (19:30-35, The holy Quran).


He Was a Humble Servant of God

"And behold! God will say [i.e. on the Day of Judgment]: 'Oh Jesus, the son of Mary! Did you say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God?' He will say: 'Glory to Thee! Never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would indeed have known it. You know what is in my heart, though I know not what is in Yours. For You know in full all that is hidden. Never did I say to them anything except what You commanded me to say: 'Worship God, my Lord and your Lord.' And I was a witness over them while I lived among them. When You took me up, You were the Watcher over them, and You are a witness to all things'" (5:116-117, The holy Quran).


Jesus (pbuh) was not crucified

". that They said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah.;- but They killed Him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety They killed Him not:-Nay, Allah raised Him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted In power, Wise "(4:157-158, The holy Quran)
