The True Narrative of Jesus the Son of Mary as Revealed in the Qur'an

‘The Noble Qur’n’ is the title of a verse-by-verse translation into English of the Qur’n, and is available from most Islamic bookshops.

The Qur'aan only exists in the Arabic language and is preserved in the form it was revealed in, consequently a translation into another language is only refered to as a translation-of-the-meanings of the Qur'aan, the translation loses some of the meanings and most of the rythm and style.   Allh (Arabic): from a contraction of Al (the) + ILh (god: equivalent to Hebrew: Elh, Alh) meaning the one and only God, pronounced with a deep, stressed, slightly-rolled double ‘L’ sound.   "And this Qur'n is not such as could ever be produced by other than Allh (Lord of the heavens and the earth), but (on the contrary) it is a confirmation of (the revelation) which was before it [i.e. the Taurt (Torah), and the Injeel (Gospel), etc.], and a full explanation of the Book (i.e. laws and orders, etc, decreed for mankind) - wherein there is no doubt, from the Lord of the 'Alamn (mankind, jinns,and all that exists)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Ynus (no.10), Verse 37]

   "Do they not consider the Qur’n carefully? Had it been from other than Allh, they would surely, have found therein many a contradiction." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter An-Nis’ (no.4), Verse 82]

First mention of Jesus (may the peace and blessings of Allh be upon him) in the Qur'an 

"And indeed, We gave Msa (Moses) the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers. And We gave 'Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Rh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]. Is it that whenever there came to you a Messenger with what you yourselves desired not, you grew arrogant? Some, you disbelieved and some, you killed." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-Baqarah (no.2), Verse 87] 

Mention made of some of the Prophets of Allh  

"And that was Our Proof which We gave Ibrhim (Abraham) against his people. We raise whom We will in degrees. Certainly your Lord is AllWise, AllKnowing.    And We bestowed upon him Ishque (Isaac) and Ya'qb (Jacob), each of them We guided, and before him, We guided Nh (Noah), and among his progeny Dawd (David), Sulaimn (Solomon), Ayub (Job), Ysuf (Joseph), Msa (Moses), and Hrn (Aaron). Thus do We reward the gooddoers.    And Zakariy (Zachariya), and Yahya (John) and 'Iesa (Jesus) and Iliys (Elias), each one of them was of the righteous.    And Ism'il (Ishmael) and Al-Yas' (Elisha), and Ynus (Jonah) and Lout (Lot), and each one of them We preferred above the 'Alamn (mankind and jinns) (of their times)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-An’m (no.6), Verse 83-86] 

The religion followed by the Messengers was one and the same. 

"He (Allh) has ordained for you the same religion (Islm) which He ordained for Nh (Noah), and that which We have inspired in you (O Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allh be upon him)), and that which We ordained for Ibrahm (Abraham), Msa (Moses) and 'Iesa (Jesus) saying you should establish religion (i.e. to do what it orders you to do practically), and make no divisions in it (religion) (i.e. various sects in religion). Intolerable for the Mushrikn [Those who worship others along with Allh], is that to which you (O Muhammad) call them. Allh chooses for Himself whom He wills, and guides unto Himself (he) who turns to Him in repentance and in obedience." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Ash-Shra (no.42), Verse 13] 

"Say (O Muhammad): "We believe in Allh and in what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down to Ibrhim (Abraham), Ism'il (Ishmael), Ishque (Isaac), Ya'qb (Jacob) and Al-Asbt [the twelve sons of Ya'qb (Jacob)] and what was given to Msa (Moses), 'Iesa (Jesus) and the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between one another among them and to Him (Allh) we have submitted (in Islm)."    And whoever seeks a religion other than Islm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.    How shall Allh guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and after they bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad) is true and after clear proofs had come unto them? And Allh guides not the people who are Zlimn (polytheists and wrong-doers)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter l-‘Imrn (no.3), Verse 84-86] 

What was this message?   

"And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): "Worship Allh (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Tght (all false deities, etc. i.e. do not worship Tght besides Allh)." Then of them were some whom Allh guided and of them were some upon whom the straying was justified. So travel through the land and see what was the end of those who denied (the truth)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter An-Nahl (no.16), Verse 36]  

Summary of Allh's message sent first to the Jews then to the Christians and then to the Muslims  

"Indeed Allh took the covenant from the Children of Israel (Jews), and We appointed twelve leaders among them. And Allh said: "I am with you if you perform As-Salt (Iqmat-as-Salt [establish the prayer]) and give Zakt [compulsory religious charity] and believe in My Messengers; honour and assist them, and lend to Allh a good loan. Verily, I will remit your sins and admit you to Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise). But if any of you after this, disbelieved, he has indeed gone astray from the Straight Path."    So because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard. They change the words from their (right) places and have abandoned a good part of the Message that was sent to them. And you will not cease to discover deceit in them, except a few of them. But forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds). Verily, Allh loves AlMuhsinn (gooddoers - see V.2:112).    And from those who call themselves Christians, We took their covenant, but they have abandoned a good part of the Message that was sent to them. So We planted amongst them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection (when they discarded Allh's Book, disobeyed Allh's Messengers and His Orders and transgressed beyond bounds in Allh's disobedience), and Allh will inform them of what they used to do.    O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allh a light (Prophet Muhammad) and a plain Book (this Qur'n).    Wherewith Allh guides all those who seek His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to a Straight Way (Islmic Monotheism).    Surely, in disbelief are they who say that Allh is the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary). Say (O Muhammad): "Who then has the least power against Allh, if He were to destroy the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), his mother, and all those who are on the earth together?" And to Allh belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them. He creates what He wills. And Allh is Able to do all things.     And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We are the children of Allh and His loved ones." Say: "Why then does He punish you for your sins?" Nay, you are but human beings, of those He has created, He forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allh belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and to Him is the return (of all).    O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad) making (things) clear unto you, after a break in (the series of) Messengers, lest you say: "There came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner." But now has come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner. And Allh is Able to do all things." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 12-19] 

Allh's covenant with his Prophets  

"And (remember) when We took from the Prophets their covenant, and from you (O Muhammad), and from Nh (Noah), Ibrhim (Abraham), Msa (Moses), and 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). We took from them a strong covenant.     That He may ask the truthfuls (Allh's Messengers and His Prophets) about their truth (i.e. the conveyance of Allh's Message that which they were charged with). And He has prepared for the disbelievers a painful torment (Hell-fire)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-Ahzb (no.33), Verse 7-8] 

The ones who truly believe in Allh and his Messengers, strive to obey him. While those who reject belief are deceived by the wealth and the possessions of this short life.  

"O (you) Messengers! Eat of the Taiyibt [all kinds of Hall (legal) foods which Allh has made legal (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, milk products, fats, vegetables, fruits, etc.], and do righteous deeds. Verily! I am Well-Acquainted with what you do.    And verily! This your religion (of Islmic Monotheism) is one religion, and I am your Lord, so keep your duty to Me.    But they (men) have broken their religion among them into sects, each group rejoicing in its belief.    So leave them in their error for a time.     Do they think that We enlarge them in wealth and children,    We hasten unto them with good things (in this worldly life so that they will have no share of good things in the Hereafter)? Nay, but they perceive not.    Verily! Those who live in awe for fear of their Lord;    And those who believe in the Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of their Lord,    And those who join not anyone (in worship) as partners with their Lord;    And those who give that (their charity) which they give (and also do other good deeds) with their hearts full of fear (whether their alms and charities, etc., have been accepted or not), because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning).    It is these who race for the good deeds, and they are foremost in them [e.g. offering the compulsory Salt (prayers) in their (early) stated, fixed times and so on].    And We tax not any person except according to his capacity, and with Us is a Record which speaks the truth, and they will not be wronged.    Nay, but their hearts are covered (blind) from understanding this (the Qur'n), and they have other (evil) deeds, besides, which they are doing.    Until, when We grasp those of them who lead a luxurious life with punishment, behold! They make humble invocation with a loud voice.    Invoke not loudly this day! Certainly, you shall not be helped by Us.    Indeed My Verses used to be recited to you, but you used to turn back on your heels (denying them, and with hatred to listen to them).    In pride (they Quraish pagans and polytheists of Makkah used to feel proud that they are the dwellers of Makkah sanctuary Haram), talking evil about it (the Qur'n) by night." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-Mu’minn (no.23), Verse 51-67]  

The mission of Jesus   

"And in their footsteps, We sent 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), confirming the Taurt (Torah) that had come before him, and We gave him the Injeel (Gospel), in which was guidance and light and confirmation of the Taurt (Torah) that had come before it, a guidance and an admonition for Al-Muttaqn (the pious)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 46] 

The endurance of Moses, Jesus and Muhammad  

"And (remember) when Msa (Moses) said to his people: "O my people! Why do you hurt me while you know certainly that I am the Messenger of Allh to you? So when they turned away (from the Path of Allh), Allh turned their hearts away (from the Right Path). And Allh guides not the people who are Fsiqn (rebellious, disobedient to Allh).    And (remember) when 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: "O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allh unto you confirming the Taurt [(Torah) which came] before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed. But when he (Ahmed i.e. Muhammad) came to them with clear proofs, they said: "This is plain magic."     And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allh, while he is being invited to Islm? And Allh guides not the people who are Zlimn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk.    They intend to put out the Light of Allh (i.e. the religion of Islm, this Qur'n, and Prophet Muhammad) with their mouths. But Allh will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it).    He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islmic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allh and in His Messenger Muhammed) hate (it).    O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.    That you believe in Allh and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!    (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter As-Saff (no.61), Verse 5-12] 

The upbringing of Maryam (Mary) and the blessing she received due to the supplication of her mother   

"(Remember) when the wife of 'Imrn said: "O my Lord! I have vowed to You what (the child that) is in my womb to be dedicated for Your services (free from all worldly work; to serve Your Place of worship), so accept this, from me. Verily, You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knowing."    Then when she delivered her [child Maryam (Mary)], she said: "O my Lord! I have delivered a female child," - and Allh knew better what she delivered, - "And the male is not like the female, and I have named her Maryam (Mary), and I seek refuge with You (Allh) for her and for her offspring from Shaitan (Satan), the outcast."    So her Lord (Allh) accepted her with goodly acceptance. He made her grow in a good manner and put her under the care of Zakariy (Zachariya). Every time he entered Al-Mihrb to (visit) her , he found her supplied with sustenance. He said: "O Maryam (Mary)! From where have you got this?" She said, "This is from Allh." Verily, Allh provides sustenance to whom He wills, without limit."     At that time Zakariy (Zachariya) invoked his Lord, saying: "O my Lord! Grant me from You, a good offspring. You are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation."    Then the angels called him, while he was standing in prayer in Al-Mihrb (a praying place or a private room), (saying): "Allh gives you glad tidings of Yahya (John), confirming (believing in) the Word from Allh [i.e. the creation of 'Iesa (Jesus), the Word from Allh ("Be!" - and he was!)], noble, keeping away from sexual relations with women, a Prophet, from among the righteous."     He said: "O my Lord! How can I have a son when I am very old, and my wife is barren?" Allh said: "Thus Allh does what He wills."     He said: "O my Lord! Make a sign for me." Allh said: "Your sign is that you shall not speak to mankind for three days except with signals. And remember your Lord much (by praising Him again and again), and glorify (Him) in the afternoon and in the morning."    And (remember) when the angels said: "O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allh has chosen you, purified you (from polytheism and disbelief), and chosen you above the women of the 'Alamn (mankind and jinns) (of her lifetime)."    O Mary! "Submit yourself with obedience to your Lord (Allh, by worshipping none but Him Alone) and prostrate yourself, and Irk'i (bow down etc.) along with Ar-Rki'n (those who bow down etc.)."    This is a part of the news of the Ghaib (unseen, i.e. the news of the past nations of which you have no knowledge) which We inspire you with (O Muhammad). You were not with them (the angels), when they cast lots with their pens as to which of them should be charged with the care of Maryam (Mary); nor were you with them when they disputed.    (Remember) when the angels said: "O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allh gives you the glad tidings of a Word ["Be!" - and he was! i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary)] from Him, his name will be the Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), held in honour in this world and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to Allh."    "He will speak to the people in the cradle and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous."    She said: "O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me." He said: "So (it will be) for Allh creates what He wills. When He has decreed something, He says to it only: "Be!" and it is.    And He (Allh) will teach him ['Iesa (Jesus)] the Book and Al-Hikmah (i.e. the Sunnah, the faultless speech of the Prophets, wisdom, etc.), (and) the Taurt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel).    And will make him ['Iesa (Jesus)] a Messenger to the Children of Israel (saying): "I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I design for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allh's Leave; and I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I bring the dead to life by Allh's Leave. And I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Surely, therein is a sign for you, if you believe.    And I have come confirming that which was before me of the Taurt (Torah), and to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a proof from your Lord. So fear Allh and obey me.    Truly! Allh is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him (Alone). This is the Straight Path.    Then when 'Iesa (Jesus) came to know of their disbelief, he said: "Who will be my helpers in Allh's Cause?" Al-Hawrin (the disciples) said: "We are the helpers of Allh; we believe in Allh, and bear witness that we are Muslims (i.e. we submit to Allh)."    Our Lord! We believe in what You have sent down, and we follow the Messenger ['Iesa (Jesus)]; so write us down among those who bear witness (to the truth i.e. L ilha ill-Allh - none has the right to be worshipped but Allh).    And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus)], and Allh planned too. And Allh is the Best of the planners." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter l-‘Imrn (no.3), Verse 35-54] 

The creation of Jesus, his birth and the first miracle of defending his mother, Mary, from slander   

"And mention in the Book (the Qur'n, O Muhammad), the story of) Maryam (Mary), when she withdrew in seclusion from her family to a place facing east.    She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our Ruh [angel Jibrael (Gabriel)], and he appeared before her in the form of a man in all respects.    She said: "Verily! I seek refuge with the Most Beneficent (Allh) from you, if you do fear Allh."    (The angel) said: "I am only a Messenger from your Lord, (to announce) to you the gift of a righteous son."    She said: "How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste?"    He said: "So (it will be), your Lord said: 'That is easy for Me (Allh): And (We wish) to appoint him as a sign to mankind and a mercy from Us (Allh), and it is a matter (already) decreed, (by Allh).'"    So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a far place (i.e. Bethlehem valley about 4-6 miles from Jerusalem).     And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a date-palm. She said: "Would that I had died before this, and had been forgotten and out of sight!"    Then [the babe 'Iesa (Jesus) or Jibrael (Gabriel)] cried unto her from below her, saying: "Grieve not! Your Lord has provided a water stream under you;    "And shake the trunk of date-palm towards you, it will let fall fresh ripe-dates upon you."    "So eat and drink and be glad, and if you see any human being, say: 'Verily! I have vowed a fast unto the Most Beneficent (Allh) so I shall not speak to any human being this day.'"     Then she brought him (the baby) to her people, carrying him. They said: "O Mary! Indeed you have brought a thing Fariya (an unheard mighty thing).     "O sister (i.e. the like) of Hrn (Aaron) [not the brother of Msa (Moses), but he was another pious man at the time of Maryam (Mary)]! Your father was not a man who used to commit adultery, nor your mother was an unchaste woman."     Then she pointed to him. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?"    "He ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: Verily! I am a slave of Allh, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet;"     "And He has made me blessed wheresoever I be, and has enjoined on me Salt (prayer), and Zakt (charity), as long as I live."    "And dutiful to my mother, and made me not arrogant, unblest.    "And Salm (peace) be upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!"    Such is 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). (it is) a statement of truth, about which they doubt (or dispute).    It befits not (the Majesty of) Allh that He should beget a son [this refers to the slander of Christians against Allh, by saying that 'Iesa (Jesus) is the son of Allh]. Glorified (and Exalted be He above all that they associate with Him). When He decrees a thing, He only says to it, "Be!" and it is.    ['Iesa (Jesus) said]: "And verily Allh is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him (Alone). That is the Straight Path. (Allh's Religion of Islmic Monotheism which He did ordain for all of His Prophets)." [Tafsir At-Tabar]Then the sects differed [i.e. the Christians about 'Iesa (Jesus)], so woe unto the disbelievers [those who gave false witness by saying that 'Iesa (Jesus) is the son of Allh] from the meeting of a great Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection, when they will be thrown in the blazing Fire).    How clearly will they (polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allh) see and hear, the Day when they will appear before Us! But the Zalimn (polytheists and wrong-doers) today are in plain error.    And warn them (O Muhammad) of the Day of grief and regrets, when the case has been decided, while (now) they are in a state of carelessness, and they believe not.    Verily! We will inherit the earth and whatsoever is thereon. And to Us they all shall be returned," [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Maryam (no.19), Verse 16-40]  

A severe admonition to those who changed the Message of Jesus after his ascension 

"And when 'Iesa (Jesus) came with (Our) clear Proofs, he said: "I have come to you with Al-Hikmah (Prophethood), and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) in which you differ, therefore fear Allh and obey me,     "Verily, Allh! He is my Lord (God) and your Lord (God). So worship Him (Alone). This is the (only) Straight Path (i.e. Allh's religion of true Islmic Monotheism)."    But the sects from among themselves differed. So woe to those who do wrong (by ascribing things to 'Iesa (Jesus) that are not true) from the torment of a painful Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)!    Do they only wait for the Hour that it shall come upon them suddenly, while they perceive not?    Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except Al-Muttaqn (pious - see V.2:2).  (It will be said to the true believers of Islmic Monotheism): My worshippers! No fear shall be on you this Day, nor shall you grieve,    (You) who believed in Our Ayt (proofs, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and were Muslims (i.e. who submit totally to Allh's Will, and believe in the Oneness of Allh - Islmic Monotheism).    Enter Paradise, you and your wives, in happiness.    Trays of gold and cups will be passed round them, (there will be) therein all that the one's inner-selves could desire, all that the eyes could delight in, and you will abide therein forever.    This is the Paradise which you have been made to inherit because of your deeds which you used to do (in the life of the world).    Therein for you will be fruits in plenty, of which you will eat (as you desire).    Verily, the Mujrimn (criminals, sinners, disbelievers, etc.) will be in the torment of Hell to abide therein forever.    (The torment) will not be lightened for them, and they will be plunged into destruction with deep regrets, sorrows and in despair therein.    We wronged them not, but they were the Zlimn (polytheists, wrong-doers, etc.).    And they will cry: "O Malik (Keeper of Hell)! Let your Lord make an end of us." He will say: "Verily you shall abide forever."    Indeed We have brought the truth (Muhammad with the Qur'n), to you, but most of you have a hatred for the truth." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Az-Zukhruf (no.43), Verse 63-78] 

Some of the miracles of Jesus mentioned again  

"(Remember) when Allh will say (on the Day of Resurrection). "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Remember My Favour to you and to your mother when I supported you with RhulQudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)] so that you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and when I taught you writing, AlHikmah (the power of understanding), the Taurt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel); and when you made out of the clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My Permission, and you breathed into it, and it became a bird by My Permission, and you healed those born blind, and the lepers by My Permission, and when you brought forth the dead by My Permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from you (when they resolved to kill you) since you came unto them with clear proofs, and the disbelievers among them said: 'This is nothing but evident magic.'"" [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 110] 

How Allh, the Most High, saved Jesus from crucifixion by ascension  

"And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus)], and Allh planned too. And Allh is the Best of the planners.   And (remember) when Allh said: "O 'Iesa (Jesus)! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you [of the forged statement that 'Iesa (Jesus) is Allh's son] of those who disbelieve, and I will make those who follow you (Monotheists, who worship none but Allh) superior to those who disbelieve [in the Oneness of Allh, or disbelieve in some of His Messengers, e.g. Muhammad, 'Iesa (Jesus), Msa (Moses), etc., or in His Holy Books, e.g. the Taurt (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), the Qur'n] till the Day of Resurrection. Then you will return to Me and I will judge between you in the matters in which you used to dispute."    "As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them with a severe torment in this world and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers."    And as for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allh) and do righteous good deeds, Allh will pay them their reward in full. And Allh does not like the Zlimn (polytheists and wrong-doers).    This is what We recite to you (O Muhammad) of the Verses and the Wise Reminder (i.e. the Qur'n).    Verily, the likeness of 'Iesa (Jesus) before Allh is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: "Be!" - and he was.    (This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of those who doubt." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter l-‘Imrn (no.3), Verse 54-60] 

"And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allh," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of 'Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]:    But Allh raised him ['Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allh is Ever AllPowerful, AllWise." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter An-Nis’ (no.4), Verse 157-158] 

The fallacy of the attribution of divinity to Jesus and his Mother  

"Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allh is the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary)." But the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: "O Children of Israel! Worship Allh, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allh, then Allh has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zlimn (polytheists and wrongdoers) there are no helpers.    Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allh is the third of the three (in a Trinity)." But there is no ilh (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped) but One Ilh (God -Allh). And if they cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall the disbelievers among them.    Will they not repent to Allh and ask His Forgiveness? For Allh is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.    The Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary), was no more than a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed away before him. His mother [Maryam (Mary)] was a Siddiqah [i.e. she believed in the words of Allh and His Books]. They both used to eat food (as any other human being, while Allh does not eat). Look how We make the Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to them, yet look how they are deluded away (from the truth)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 72-75]  

Jesus is not the son of God but instead is His creation (like Adam)  

"Verily, the likeness of 'Iesa (Jesus) before Allh is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: "Be!" - and he was.    (This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of those who doubt.    Then whoever disputes with you concerning him ['Iesa (Jesus)] after (all this) knowledge that has come to you, [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus)] being a slave of Allh, and having no share in Divinity) say: (O Muhammad) "Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves - then we pray and invoke (sincerely) the Curse of Allh upon those who lie."    Verily! This is the true narrative [about the story of 'Iesa (Jesus)], and, L ilha ill-Allh (none has the right to be worshipped but Allh, the One and the Only True God, Who has neither a wife nor a son). And indeed, Allh is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.    And if they turn away (and do not accept these true proofs and evidences), then surely, Allh is All-Aware of those who do mischief.    Say (O Muhammad): "O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allh, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allh. Then, if they turn away, say: "Bear witness that we are Muslims."" [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter l-‘Imrn (no.3), Verse 59-64] 

Jesus did not teach the people to worship him, but the people deified him after his ascension  

"And (remember) when Allh will say (on the Day of Resurrection): "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Did you say unto men: 'Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allh?' " He will say: "Glory be to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my innerself though I do not know what is in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the AllKnower of all that is hidden and unseen.    "Never did I say to them aught except what You (Allh) did command me to say: 'Worship Allh, my Lord and your Lord.' And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up, You were the Watcher over them, and You are a Witness to all things. (This is a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole world).    "If You punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive them, verily You, only You are the AllMighty, the AllWise."    Allh will say: "This is a Day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise) - they shall abide therein forever. Allh is pleased with them and they with Him. That is the great success (Paradise).    To Allh belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is therein, and He is Able to do all things." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 116-120] 

The lies of the people who tampered with the scriptures after the ascension of Jesus  

"They (Jews, Christians and pagans) say: "Allh has begotten a son (children)." Glory be to Him! He is Rich (Free of all wants). His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. No warrant you have for this. Do you say against Allh what you know not.    Say: "Verily, those who invent a lie against Allh will never be successful"    A brief enjoyment in this world! - and then unto Us will be their return, then We shall make them taste the severest torment because they used to disbelieve [in Allh, belie His Messengers, deny and challenge His Ayt (proofs, signs, verses, etc.)]." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Ynus (no.10), Verse 68-70] 

 "And they (Jews, Christians and pagans) say: Allh has begotten a son (children or offspring). Glory be to Him (Exalted be He above all that they associate with Him). Nay, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth, and all surrender with obedience (in worship) to Him.    The Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it : "Be!" - and it is." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-Baqarah (no.2), Verse 116-117] 

"And they say: "The Most Beneficent (Allh) has begotten a son (or children)." Glory to Him! They [those whom they call children of Allh i.e. the angels, 'Iesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary), 'Uzair (Ezra), etc.], are but honoured slaves.    They speak not until He has spoken, and they act on His Command.    He knows what is before them, and what is behind them, and they cannot intercede except for him with whom He is pleased. And they stand in awe for fear of Him.    And if any of them should say: "Verily, I am an ilh (a god) besides Him (Allh)," such a one We should recompense with Hell. Thus We recompense the Zlimn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-Anbiy (no.21), Verse 26-29] 

"And they say: "The Most Beneficent (Allh) has begotten a son (or offspring or children) [as the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allh, and the Christians say that He has begotten a son ['Iesa (Christ)], and the pagan Arabs say that He has begotten daughters (angels, etc.)]."    Indeed you have brought forth (said) a terrible evil thing.    Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins,    That they ascribe a son (or offspring or children) to the Most Beneficent (Allh).    But it is not suitable for (the Majesty of) the Most Beneficent (Allh) that He should beget a son (or offspring or children).    There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes unto the Most Beneficent (Allh) as a slave.    Verily, He knows each one of them, and has counted them a full counting.    And everyone of them will come to Him alone on the Day of Resurrection (without any helper, or protector or defender).    Verily, those who believe [in the Oneness of Allh and in His Messenger (Muhammad)] and work deeds of righteousness, the Most Beneficent (Allh) will bestow love for them (in the hearts of the believers)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Maryam (no.19), Verse 88-96] 

"Surely, in disbelief are they who say that Allh is the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary). Say (O Muhammad): "Who then has the least power against Allh, if He were to destroy the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), his mother, and all those who are on the earth together?" And to Allh belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them. He creates what He wills. And Allh is Able to do all things." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 17] 

"And the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allh's Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!    They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allh (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allh), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] to worship none but One Ilh (God - Allh) L ilha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)."    They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allh's Light (with which Muhammad has been sent - Islmic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allh will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kfirn (disbelievers) hate (it).    It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allh) hate (it)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter At-Taubah (no.9), Verse 30-33] 

A severe warning from the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth, Allh, against the concept of 'Trinity'   

"O mankind! Verily, there has come to you the Messenger (Muhammad) with the truth from your Lord, so believe in him, it is better for you. But if you disbelieve, then certainly to Allh belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. And Allh is Ever AllKnowing, AllWise.    O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allh aught but the truth. The Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), was (no more than) a Messenger of Allh and His Word, ("Be!" - and he was) which He bestowed on Maryam (Mary) and a spirit (Rh) created by Him; so believe in Allh and His Messengers. Say not: "Three (trinity)!" Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allh is (the only) One Ilh (God), Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allh is AllSufficient as a Disposer of affairs.    The Messiah will never be proud to reject to be a slave to Allh, nor the angels who are near (to Allh). And whosoever rejects His worship and is proud, then He will gather them all together unto Himself.    So, as for those who believed (in the Oneness of Allh - Islmic Monotheism) and did deeds of righteousness, He will give their (due) rewards, and more out of His Bounty. But as for those who refuse His worship and were proud, He will punish them with a painful torment. And they will not find for themselves besides Allh any protector or helper." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter An-Nis’ (no.4), Verse 170-173] 

The miraculous birth of Prophet John (Yahyah) (the Baptist)  

"(This is) a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His slave Zakariya (Zachariah).    When he called out to his Lord (Allh) a call in secret,    Saying: "My Lord! Indeed my bones have grown feeble, and grey hair has spread on my head, And I have never been unblest in my invocation to You, O my Lord!    "And Verily! I fear my relatives after me, since my wife is barren. So give me from Yourself an heir,    "Who shall inherit me, and inherit (also) the posterity of Ya'qb (Jacob) (inheritance of the religious knowledge and Prophethood, not the wealth, etc.). And make him, my Lord, one with whom You are Well-pleased!"    (Allh said) "O Zakariya (Zachariah)! Verily, We give you the glad tidings of a son, His name will be Yahya (John). We have given that name to none before (him)."    He said: "My Lord! How can I have a son, when my wife is barren, and I have reached the extreme old age."    He said: "So (it will be). Your Lord says; It is easy for Me. Certainly I have created you before, when you had been nothing!"    [Zakariya (Zachariah)] said: "My Lord! Appoint for me a sign." He said: "Your sign is that you shall not speak unto mankind for three nights, though having no bodily defect."    Then he came out to his people from Al-Mihrb (a praying place or a private room, etc.), he told them by signs to glorify Allh's Praises in the morning and in the afternoon.     (It was said to his son): "O Yahya (John)! Hold fast the Scripture [the Taurt (Torah)]." And We gave him wisdom while yet a child.  (   )  And (made him) sympathetic to men as a mercy (or a grant) from Us, and pure from sins [i.e. Yahya (John)] and he was righteous,    And dutiful towards his parents, and he was neither an arrogant nor disobedient (to Allh or to his parents)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Maryam (no.19), Verse 2-14] 

The table spread with food from Heaven  

"And when I (Allh) put in the hearts of Al-Hawreen (the disciples) [of 'Iesa (Jesus)] to believe in Me and My Messenger, they said: "We believe. And bear witness that we are Muslims."    (Remember) when Al-Hawrn (the disciples) said: "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Can your Lord send down to us a table spread (with food) from heaven?" 'Iesa (Jesus) said: "Fear Allh, if you are indeed believers."    They said: "We wish to eat thereof and to be stronger in Faith, and to know that you have indeed told us the truth and that we ourselves be its witnesses."   (  )  'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: "O Allh, our Lord! Send us from heaven a table spread (with food) that there may be for us - for the first and the last of us - a festival and a sign from You; and provide us sustenance, for You are the Best of sustainers."    Allh said: "I am going to send it down unto you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, then I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted on anyone among (all) the 'Alamn (mankind and jinns)."" [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 111-115] 

The invention of Monasticism long after the ascension of Jesus 

"And indeed, We sent Nh (Noah) and Ibrahm (Abraham), and placed in their offspring Prophethood and Scripture, and among them there is he who is guided, but many of them are Fsiqn (rebellious, disobedient to Allh).     Then, We sent after them, Our Messengers, and We sent 'Iesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary), and gave him the Injeel (Gospel). And We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him, compassion and mercy. But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allh therewith, but that they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fsiqn (rebellious, disobedient to Allh).    O you who believe [in Msa (Moses) (i.e. Jews) and 'Iesa (Jesus) (i.e. Christians)]! Fear Allh, and believe too in His Messenger (Muhammad), He will give you a double portion of His Mercy, and He will give you a light by which you shall walk (straight), and He will forgive you. And Allh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.    So that the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) may know that they have no power whatsoever over the Grace of Allh, and that (His) Grace is (entirely) in His Hand to bestow it on whomsoever He wills. And Allh is the Owner of Great Bounty." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-Hadd (no.57), Verse 26-29] 

 "And when the son of Maryam (Mary) is quoted as an example [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus) is worshipped like their idols), behold! Your people cry aloud (laugh out at the example).    And say: "Are our liha (gods) better or is he ['Iesa (Jesus)]?" They quoted not the above example except for argument. Nay! But they are a quarrelsome people. [(See V. 21:97-101) - The Qur'n.]     He ['Iesa (Jesus)] was not more than a slave. We granted Our Favour to him, and We made him an example to the Children of Israel (i.e. his creation without a father)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Az-Zukhruf (no.43), Verse 57-59] 

Jews, Christians and Islm  

"Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikn [polytheists, pagans etc.], and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud.    And when they (who call themselves Christians) listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognised. They say: "Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses.    "And why should we not believe in Allh and in that which has come to us of the truth (Islmic Monotheism)? And we wish that our Lord will admit us (in Paradise on the Day of Resurrection) along with the righteous people (Prophet Muhammad and his Companions)."     So because of what they said, Allh rewarded them Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise)[i.e. they became true Muslims], they will abide therein forever. Such is the reward of gooddoers.    But those who disbelieved and belied Our Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they shall be the dwellers of the (Hell) Fire." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 82-86] 

Relationship of Islm and the Qur'n to the previous scriptures 

"And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book (this Qur'n) in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Mohayminan (trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old Scriptures). So judge between them by what Allh has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging away from the truth that has come to you. To each among you, We have prescribed a law and a clear way. If Allh willed, He would have made you one nation, but that (He) may test you in what He has given you; so strive as in a race in good deeds. The return of you (all) is to Allh; then He will inform you about that in which you used to differ.    And so judge (you O Muhammad) between them by what Allh has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad) far away from some of that which Allh has sent down to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allh's Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly, most of men are Fsiqn (rebellious and disobedient to Allh)." [The Noble Qur’n, Chapter Al-M’idah (no.5), Verse 48-49] 

Why Prophets were sent to Mankind  

Ever since people innovated the dogma of Shirk, (i.e. joining others in worship along with Allh), Allh had been sending Prophets and Messengers to His devotees in order to invite them to the worship of Allh and Allh Alone, to order them not to ascribe partners unto Him and bring them out of the darkness of polytheism into the light of Monotheism. All the Prophets preached Tauhd (i.e. Pure Monotheism, the Belief in the Oneness of Allh, the Glorious, the Elevated). The following Verses from the Noble Qur'n illustrate this fact: 
"Indeed We sent Noah to his people, and he said: ‘O my people! Worship Allh! You have no other Ilh (God) but Him. (L ilaha ill Allh, none has the right to be worshipped but Allh). Certainly, I fear for you the torment of a great Day!’" (V. 7:59). 

"And to ‘Ad (people, We sent) their brother Hd. He said: ‘O my people! Worship Allh! You have no other Ilh (God) but Him. (L ilha ill Allh, none has the right to be worshipped but Allh). Will you not fear (Allh)?’" (V. 7:65). 

"And to (the people of) Madyan (Midian), (We sent) their brother Shu’aib. He said: ‘O my people! Worship Allh! You have no other Ilh (God) but Him. (L ilha ill Allh, none has the right to be worshipped but Allh). Verily, a clear proof (sign) from your Lord has come unto you, so give full measure and full weight and wrong not men in their things, and do not make mischief on the earth after it has been set in order, that will be better for you, if you are believers.’" (V.7:85) 

"And to Thamd (people, We sent) their brother Salih. He said: ‘O my people! Worship Allh! You have no other Ilh (God) but Him. (L ilha ill Allh, none has the right to be worshipped but Allh).’" (V. 7:73).  

"And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): Worship Allh (Alone) and avoid (or keep away from) Tght (all false deities etc. i.e. do not worship Tghts besides Allh)." (V. 16:36). 

Every Prophet was sent unto his own nation for their guidance, but the Message of Prophet Muhammad SAW was general for all mankind and jinns.  

"Say (O Muhammad SAW ): ‘O mankind: Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allh.’" (V. 7:158). 

So the aim of sending these Prophets and Messengers to men and jinns was only that they should worship Allh Alone, as Allh; said: "And I (Allh) created not the jinns and men except they should worship Me (Alone)" The Qur’n (V. 51:56). 

And to worship Allh means to obey Him and to do all He has ordained, and to fear Him by abstaining from all He has forbidden. Then those who will obey Allh will be rewarded inParadise, and those who will disobey Him, and rebel against his commands after He has ordered them to believe in Islm and the Final Messenger, will be punished in the Hell-Fire. 
 

"O mankind! Verily, there has come to you the Messenger (Muhammad) with the truth from your Lord, so believe in him, it is better for you. But if you disbelieve, then certainly to Allh belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. And Allh is Ever AllKnowing, AllWise." [The Noble Qur’n, An-Nis’, 170]

"O you who believe! Be you helpers (in the Cause) of Allh as said 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), to AlHawrn (the disciples): "Who are my helpers (in the Cause) of Allh?" AlHawreen (the disciples) said: "We are Allh's helpers" (i.e. we will strive in His Cause!). Then a group of the Children of Israel believed and a group disbelieved. So We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the uppermost." [The Noble Qur’n, As-Saff, 14]

"Verily, Allh forgives not that partners should be set up with Him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin." [The Noble Qur’n, An-Nis’, 48]
