DO YOU BELIEVE JESUS AS THE SON OF GOD?

No, we Muslims don't consider Jesus (peace be upon him) as the son of God but he is an important prophet and messenger in Islam. It is an established fact that all the Prophets and Messengers of God were sent as light bearers to humanity; they all came with the purpose of upholding the truth, maintaining justice and bringing man closer to his Lord. We believe in all the Prophets and Messengers of Allah. We respect and honor all of them without any discrimination. We believe that all Prophets preached the message of tawhid (monotheism) and all of them invited human beings to worship Allah alone and live a righteous life. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was not the only Prophet of God, but he was the last and final Prophet of God. Prophet Muhammad is not the founder of Islam; all Prophets were Muslims and they followed the way of Islam.

DO YOU BELIEVE JESUS AS THE SON OF GOD?


It may be a surprise to you that we Muslims also believe in Jesus. We believe that Jesus was one of the great Prophets of God. In the Quran he is called Isa. He is a highly respected religious figure. Every Muslim honors him, respects him and loves him. His mother is also highly respected, loved and honored. There are hundreds of thousands of Muslim men all over the world who feel proud and blessed to have the name `Isa; as there are thousands of Muslim women who feel honored and blessed to be called Maryam. The Quran says in several places that Mary was a pious virgin who devoted her life in prayer and divine service. The angel of God one day visited her and gave her the good news of the birth of a blessed child. This was a miraculous birth as Mary was not a married woman. The virgin birth is clearly mentioned in the Quran and no recognized Muslim authority has ever disputed this claim. For every Prophet a particular miracle was given according to the needs and challenges of his time.

Jesus also performed many other miracles, such as raising of the dead to life, healing the blind and lepers, speaking about the hidden things. The Quran emphasizes that Jesus performed all his miracles only by the permission of God. The message of Jesus was basically the same as the message of other prophets of God. He was sent to invite people to the worship of One God, to do the righteous deed and be kind and loving to others. The Quran says that Jesus was mistreated, denied and rejected by his people just as other prophets were also mistreated. It is also reported in the Christian Bible that Jesus prayed to God to save him from his enemies and remove the cup of death from him. God accepted Jesus prayer and saved him from crucifixion or death on the cross. He was lifted up to heaven. Jesus is yet to fulfill his Messianic role. Muslims believe that Jesus will come back to earth before the end of time and will restore peace and order, struggle against the Anti-Christ or demonic forces, and bring victory for truth and righteousness. The true followers of Jesus will prevail over those who deny him, misrepresent him and reject him.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS MENTIONS PROPHET MUHAMMAD BY NAME IN CHAPTER 220 GOSPEL OF BARNABAS
Jesus answered: 'Believe me, Barnabas, that every sin, however small it be, God punishes with great punishment, seeing that God is offended at sin. Wherefore, since my mother and my faithful disciples that were with me loved me a little with earthly love, the righteous God has willed to punish this love with the present grief, in order that it may not be punished in the flames of hell. And though I have been innocent in the world, since men have called me "God," and "Son of God," God, in order that I be not mocked of the demons on the day of judgment, has willed that I be mocked of men in this world by the death of Judas;, making all men to believe that I died upon the cross. And this mocking shall continue until the advent of Muhammad;, the Messenger ;of God, who, when he shall come, shall reveal this deception to those who believe in God's Law. Having thus spoken, Jesus said: 'You are just, O Lord our God, because to you only belongs honor and glory without end.'

DO YOU BELIEVE TRINITY?


Islam is monotheistic, Muslims reject the Trinitythat God has revealed Himself as one in three Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God has no partners, no children, because God is Eternal, and free of all wants, God is one and there is none comparable to him. This is why noone is worthy of worship except God alone. Please check out (how did the trinity develop?)how did the trinity develop? WHY, for thousands of years, did none of God's prophets teach his people about the Trinity? At the latest, would Jesus not use his ability as the Great Teacher to make the Trinity clear to his followers? Would God inspire hundreds of pages of Scripture and yet not use any of this instruction to teach the Trinity if it were the "central doctrine" of faith? The testimony of history is clear: The Trinity teaching is a deviation from the truth, an apostatizing from it.
