in the Holy Qur'an

Jesus said: ‘I am a servant of
God. He has granted me the
Scripture; made me a prophet; made
me blessed wherever I may be. He
commanded me to pray, to give alms
as long as I live, to cherish my
mother. He did not make me
domineering or graceless.
Peace was on me the day I was born,
and will be on me the day I die and
the day I am raised to life again.
Such was Jesus, son of Mary,
[This is] a statement of the Truth
about which they are in doubt:

Jesus in the Holy Qur’an

Part 1of 8

The Most Remarkable Birth in History
Relate in the book [the story of] Mary and how she withdrew from her family to a place in
the east, where she kept herself in seclusion from them. We, then, sent to her Our Angel,
who appeared to her in the shape of a well-made human being. She said: May the Most
Merciful protect me from you. [Do not come near me] if you fear God.’ ‘I am but an
emissary of your Lord,’ he said, [and has come] to give you a son endowed with purity. ‘She
said: ‘How shall I have a child when no man has ever touched me and I have never been a
loose woman?’ He answered: ‘thus did your Lord speak: This is easy for Me. We will make
him a sign for mankind and an act of grace from Us. It is a matter [We have] decreed.’

How Jesus Was Born
But [a voice] from below cried out to her: Do not give in to grief. Your Lord has provided a
brook running beneath you. And if you shake the trunk of the palm tree towards you, it will
drop you fresh ripe dates. So eat and drink and be happy. Should you see any human being,


nor was your mother a loose woman!” “But she pointed to the child. He has vouchsafed to me revelations and made me a prophet. He has made me kind to my mother. carrying her child openly in her arms.

Hence. Jesus concludes his words by declaring the truth that God is his Lord and the Lord of all mankind. It has nothing of the claims advanced by those who assign to him a divine nature. It is not conceivable that God should beget a son. This is the full import of his statement and the way it is phrased. so worship Him alone. All creatures come into existence when He says to them. and able to do what He wills. they must worship Him alone. That is a straight path. so that their line of existence is continued.

Thus. you shall believe in him and you shall help him.” said He. (78) It is not conceivable that any human being to whom God had given revelation and wisdom and prophet hood would subsequently say to people: “Worship me instead of God. for God loves the righteous. by virtue of spreading the knowledge of the Scriptures and your constant study of them.
