Hi

According to muslims, Who is son of GOD?. If no one is Son of GOD then what they say about the verse John 3:16

" For GOD so loved this world he gave his only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life"

If they accept JESUS as a prophet, then they should accept that the BIBLE is true. Is it not?

Sorry if I couldn't make u clear my question.

The Truth about Jesus (Part One): The Muslim Nation is More Worthy of Jesus Than All Others

Yahya Adel Ibrahim

All Praise is for Allah alone. He is the Rabb of all that exists. Surely, we send the highest Salah and Salam upon the Final Prophet, the leader of the pious and upon his family, companions and those who follow their example with Ih’san till the Day of Reckoning.

Amma Ba‘du:

One of the greatest hurdles confronting Muslims today is a lack of knowledge about certain essential beliefs that we as Muslims must unwaveringly adhere to. Of the most pertinent issues facing Muslims living in localities that are heavily influenced by western culture is how we view ‘Issa bin Marium -Jesus the Son of Mary – ‘alihi as-Salaam (AS).

On a cyclical basis we are confronted with different "religious" occasions that are marked by our Christian neighbours, coworkers and acquaintances. It is paramount that we as Muslims have a firm understanding of what he – ‘Issa (AS) represents to us as Muslims. Whether it is Easter Monday or Christmas day, we as Muslims should know what Islam says about the issues that are presented to us on a regular basis.

This four part series will attempt to expound upon the basic knowledge that Muslims may already have. It will also seek to introduce evidences from the Nobel Quran and the Pure Sunnah with regards to issues that may not have been discussed in detail before. There are four main issues regarding ‘Issa bin Marium (AS) that we as Muslims must have knowledge of.


  • The Muslim Nation is more Worthy of ‘Issa than all the other nations.
  • Who was Marium? And the Truth about the Immaculate Conception and the Birth of ‘Isaa (AS).
  • The Life and Near Death of ‘Issa (AS).
  • The Inevitable Return of ‘Issa to Slay the Dajjal (One-eyed liar or the Anti-Christ) and Lead the Muslim Nation.


  • We will attempt to deal with each of these four points – beginning here with Part one – in a knowledge based manner. The opinions expressed will be those that are held by the majority of the Scholars of Islam. The weaker opinions or those that do not have an evidentiary basis will not be discussed unless to show their inaccuracy or incorrectness. In discussing this issue we will only turn to the verified sources of authenticity. We will only narrate that which is accepted as true and verified by the Muslim scholars of past and present. We will not look into sources that do not have an Islamic basis. A Muslim writes this discussion for Muslims, from exclusively Islamic scholarly sources. To debate these issues from others sources (Bible) is a wholly separate discussion that has no place here.
    The Muslim Nation is more Worthy of ‘Issa than all others

    The one who claims that ‘Issa (AS) is God, or that ‘Issa (AS) is the Son of God, or that God is a Trinity that includes ‘Issa is in fact the most distant from the teachings of ‘Issa (AS) even if he calls himself a devout Christian. Claiming love for someone implies that you adhere to what that individual stood for and called to. ‘Issa (AS) was never one who claimed any one of the previous three statements for himself. In fact neither did his true followers.

    For this to become clear we will analyze four main points:


    1. The Prophets of Allah are all Related.
    2. The Only accepted Deen (Religious Way of Life) is Islam.
    3. ‘Issa was but a humble Messenger and Prophet of Allah.
    4. ‘Issa distances himself from the slander and unjustified claims of Christians.


    5. The Prophets of Allah are all related

      Rasool Allah (SAAW) said:

      "I am the most worthy of ‘Issa bin Marium in this life and in the hereafter." They (Sahaba) asked: "Why is that O Messenger of Allah (SAAW)?" He (SAAW) replied: "The Prophets are paternal (bloodline) brethren (from fathers side). Their mothers may be different (races, peoples, bloodlines) yet their Deen is always one (Islam)." Reported by Bukhari and Muslim.

      Therefore this necessitates that he who disputes the validity of one of the true Prophets and Messengers has in fact reviled and disputed all of them. One cannot believe in Muhammad (SAAW) and not believe in ‘Issa (AS). Equally, one cannot truly believe in ‘Issa and not believe in Muhammad (SAAW). To truly accept one Prophet or Messenger necessitates the acceptance of all those who came before him and all who will come after him, ending with Muhammad (SAAW).

      This concept is clearly portrayed in the Quran. Allah (SWT) mentions the first Messenger to humanity Nuh or Noah (AS) in the Quran. What is very interesting is that Allah (SWT) states in Surat ash-Shu‘arah (26:105) that "Nuh’s people disbelieved the Messengers." The point of relevance is that a plural (Messengers) is used in this ayah, yet we know that there were no Messengers sent to his people or humanity as a matter of fact. Allah only sent Nuh (AS) to his people and none other before him. This same concept is further emphasized in the same Surat. Allah (SWT) says:

      "‘Ad’s people disbelieved the Messengers." Ash-Shu‘rah (26:123)

      "Thamud’s people disbelieved the Messengers." Ash-Shu‘rah (26:141)

      "Lut’s (Lot’s) people disbelieved the Messengers." Ash-Shu‘rah (26:160)

      We know that to each of these people only one Messenger was sent to them.

      Disbelieving in one Prophet or Messenger is disbelief in all the Prophets and Messengers.

      Allah (SWT) says:

      "The Messenger (Muhammad) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. (They say,) ‘We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers.’" Al-Baqarah (2:285)

      Therefore all the Prophets and Messengers are a fraternity of brethren through the lineage of their fathers. Even ‘Issa (AS), who was born without a fathers’ input into the equation of procreation is from the family of Bani Israel the descendant of Ishaq (Isaac) son of Ya ‘qoub or Jacob (AS).

      Even more important is to know that all the Prophets called to one and the same thing –Islam. This brings us to the second point of our analysis:

      The Only accepted Deen (Religious Way of Life) is Islam

      Allah (SWT) says: "Truly the religion with Allah is Islam." Ali-‘Imran (3:19)

      All of the Prophets and Messengers came calling to the one true faith. They all were sent with one mission. They were selected to call people to singling out only Allah in worship and to disavow all other gods or deities while establishing Allah (SWT) alone as the One deserving all worship. All the Prophets and Messengers called their respective peoples to Islam.

      Nuh (AS) called to Islam: Allah (SWT) says: "(Nuh said) But if you turn away (from accepting Islamic Monotheism) then no reward have I asked of you, my reward is only from Allah, and I have been commanded to be of the Muslims!" Yunus (10:72)

      Ibrahim and Ya’qoub or Abraham and Jacob (AS) called to Islam: Allah (SWT) says:

      "And who turns away from the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham) except him who befools himself? Truly, We chose him in this world and verily, in the Hereafter he will be among the righteous.

      When his Lord said to him, ‘Submit (Be Muslim)!’ He said, ‘I have submitted myself (I am Muslim) to the Lord of the all that exists.’

      And this (Islam) was enjoined by Ibrahim upon his sons and by Ya‘qoub (Jacob) saying, ‘O My sons! Allah has chosen for you the (true) religion, die not then except in the Faith of Islam (as Muslims).’

      Or were you witnesses when death approached Ya’qoub? When he said to his sons, ‘What will you worship after me (my death)?’ They said, ‘We shall worship your God (Allah) and the God of your fathers, Ibrahim, Isma‘eel (Ishmael), Ishaq (Isaac). The One (God), and to Him we submit (are Muslim).’" Al-Baqarah (2:130-133)

      Musa or Moses (AS) came with nothing other than Islam. Allah (SWT) says:

      "And Musa said: ‘O my People! If you have believed in Allah, then put your trust in Him if you are Muslims.’" Yunus (10:84)

      Yusuf or Joseph (AS) came calling his people to Islam. Allah (SWT) says:

      "(Yusuf supplicated) My Lord! You have indeed bestowed on me of the sovereignty, and taught me something of the interpretation of dreams – the (Only) Creator of the heavens and the earth! You (O Allah) are my Wali (Protector, Helper, Supporter, Guardian) in this world and in the Hereafter. Cause me to die as a Muslim (submitting to You alone) and join me with the righteous." Yusuf (12:101)

      In turn, ‘Issa bin Marium (AS) came calling his people only to Islam. Allah (SWT) says: "Then when ‘Issa came to know of their disbelief, he said: ‘Who will be my helpers in Allah’s Cause?’ The disciples said: ‘We are the helpers of Allah; we believe in Allah, and bear witness that we are Muslims.’"

      Ali-‘Imran (3:52)

      And the finality of Prophethood, the Imam of the Messengers and the Leader of the Righteous, Muhammad (SAAW) was sent calling all of humanity not just a single people to Islam. Allah (SWT) says:

      "This day I have perfected your religion for you (all humanity), completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion." Al-Ma’idah (5:3)

      The religion of all those truly sent by Allah as Messengers was Islam.

      ‘Issa was but a humble Messenger and Prophet of Allah.

      What is quite amusing to see is that there are those who accept the concept of Monotheism (Jews and Christians) yet reject it at the same time. The Jews reject known Prophets and Messengers of Allah. They at times went as far as executing them. This was planned for ‘Issa as will be explained later on in our discussions. Allah (SWT) describes this vividly in the Quran:

      "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." Al-Baqarah 2:87

      On the other hand, those who claimed Christianity went too far in the veneration of their Prophet and Messenger ‘Issa. They corrupted his teachings by claiming for him things that he never stated for him self. They elevated ‘Issa after his departing them to a paganistic status that nullified whatever Monotheistic faith they had in their hearts.

      Allah (SWT) says:

      "And they say: ‘The Most Gracious (Allah) has begotten a son (or offspring or children).’ Indeed you have brought forth (said) a most 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) to the Most Gracious.

      But it is not befitting (the Majesty) of the Most Gracious (Allah) that He should beget a son (or offspring).

      There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes unto the Most Gracious as a slave." Marium (19:88-93)

      Shaykhul Islam Ibn al-Qayyim has a beautiful poem dispelling the falsities and irrational of Christians past and present. He poetically states:



      To the worshippers of the Messiah (‘Issa) we put forth a question.

      We seek an answer from those who have comprehension.

      If a god was to be put to death by a people

      Can he be truly godly?

      Stranger than a god being interned in a grave,

      Is being confined in a womb

      Remaining for nine months

      In darkness; nourished from his mothers blood

      Finally exiting the birth canal a small weak child

      With open mouth seeking a breast to suckle

      Suckling thus necessitating urination and defecation

      Is this the God that you claim?!


      Quite simply he is but a man who was chosen by Allah (SWT) as a caller to guidance and righteousness. Allah (SWT) says:

      "The Messiah (‘Issa) bin Marium, was no more than a Messenger, many who were Messengers have passed away before him. His mother (Mary) was a Sidiqah (believed in Words of Allah). Both of them used to eat food (as all other human beings). Look how We make the Ayat (proofs, evidences, lessons, examples) clear to them; yet look how they are deluded away (from the truth)." Al-Ma’idah (5:75)

      Some will ask, how can someone be born to a virgin mother and not be divine?

      Allah (SWT) answers:

      "Verily, the likeness of ‘Issa before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him (Adam) from dust, then (He) said to him: ‘Be!’ – and he was."

      Ali-‘Imran (3:59)

      Surely the creation of a complete physical man from dust is greater than the creation of ‘Issa. If Adam (AS) is not thought of as being divine, then why has the same claim been made for ‘Issa (AS)?

      ‘Issa distances himself from the slander and unjustified claims of Christians.

      Allah (SWT) gives us a glimpse of what will be spoken by ‘Issa on the Day of Judgment in defense of himself and proclaiming his innocence and freedom from the unjustified claims of those who ascribed to him abominable lies.

      Allah (SWT) mentions this to us in the concluding verses of Surat al-Ma’idah.

      "And (remember) when Allah will say (on the Day of Ressurection):

      ‘O ‘Issa, son of Marium! Did you say unto men: ‘Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?’’

      He (‘Issa) will say: ‘Glory is to You (Alone)! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You surely, have known it. You know what is in my inner-self though I do not know what is in Yours; truly You, only You, are the All-Knower of all that is hidden and (unseen).’

      ‘Never did I say to them except what You (Allah) commanded me to say: ‘Worship Allah, 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.’

      ‘If You punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive them, verily, You, only You, are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.’

      Allah 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.’ Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. That is the great success Emotion: paradise.

      To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is therein, and He is Able to do all things." Al-Ma’idah (5:116-120)

      These are the words of truth that are undeniable by the one who possesses insight, rational and a clear understanding of Allah.

      In our upcoming discussion we will analyze and discuss the Immaculate Conception from the Muslim perspective. Who was Marium and why was she chosen by Allah to carry ‘Issa (AS)? How was she made to conceive him? What were the circumstances before and after the Miraculous birth of ‘Issa (AS)?

      These and other points will be discussed in part two of this four part series seeking to learn about the slandered and oppressed Prophet and Messenger of Allah ‘Issa bin Marium.

The definition of "Son of God" in Islam:

The current Bible's "Son of God" expression is not accurate and is far away from the Truth as far as Islam is concerned. Allah Almighty never beget any son. He corrected the Jews' and Christians' "Son of God" misunderstanding in the Noble Quran:

"And they say: "(God) Most Gracious has begotten offspring." Glory to Him! they are (but) servants raised to honour. (The Noble Quran, 21:26)"

The people whom the Jews and Christians call "sons of God" in the Bible, are only servants of Allah Almighty that were raised with honour. These people are Allah Almighty's Messengers and Prophets. GOD Almighty doesn't need a son nor a wife to help Him in anything. He is the Absolute, One, Living True King, and GOD Almighty:

"Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him. (The Noble Quran, 112:1-4)"

The Bible too claims this about GOD Almighty [1 ] [2 ], but yet Christians still insist on insulting GOD Almighty (sorry to say that) and divide Him into three gods! Jesus peace be upon him himself refuted the trinity deception and never really praised it in the Bible. He even worshiped GOD Almighty Himself! Please visit:

Questions about Jesus and trinity that Christians don't have logical answers for.

Answering Trinity section. Detailed refutations to every single so-called "Trinity Verse" in the Bible.

What parts of the Bible do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth? and Why?
I do think that quoting passages from Qur'an or Bible or any other sacrified text should be used only to verify wrong claims of other's side. For examples :

If a Muslim says "The bible says that the followers of Jesus should believe in Osiris. (Mathews : 1)", Then Christians can quote the real passage of mathews :1 to verify that the Muslims has quoted the verse wrongly.

If a Christian says "Qur'an says that Muslims are obliged to Kiss Christians QS 1:1." Muslims can show us the right verse to verify that the Christian has quoted Qur'an wrongly.

In my opinion, quoting passages from sacred texts can not be used as proofs for claiming which is right and which one is wrong. The best way to compare Religions is to use objective tools like sciences and logic. We can compare two religions by comparing sacred texts head to head. In head to head comparison, we can use objective criterias such as : Consistency, Logic acceptability, Scientifical facts agreement....etc.

One more thing, please keep on the perspective that this forum is not religions forum, this is an English forum instead.
don't you think that the title should be? [:^)]

Jews, Christians - Muslims do they worship the same lord?

But Exclusive, we, christians, are not actually saying JESUS as our GOD but the son of GOD. And ofcourse BIBLE is translated to many languages but not all the matters in the bible are changed.

Because the people of GOD had sined against him for a long time, GOD sent his only his SON and HE didn't came himself to save the people. This proves the SALVATION of GOD.

King Robin,

How many versions of Bible have you read ? Just Curious.

How many matters are changed in Bible and how many are not ?

What is the oldest version of Bible that you read ? And what is the newest ?

There are so many different opinions regarding the divinity of Jesus among Christian Denominations. What denomination are you in ?
