How is Jesus God OR son of GodUsama Ghumman
How is Jesus God| Prophet Isa | Jesus in Islam
It has often been thought that the Quran denies the Christian teaching of the Trinity (Jesus is God), and commentators have taken its words to be a rejection of orthodox Christian doctrine.
Is Jesus God?
There is, of course, nothing in the Gospel to suggest that Jesus ever spoke in this fashion. (That Jesus is God or part of God).
However, it seems more likely that it is heretical doctrines that are denied in the Quran, and orthodox Christians should agree with most of its statements. An examination of the different passages will show this.
Allah says 5,’19/ 17: ‘Assuredly they have disbelieved who say that God is the Messiah, son of Mary.’
Jesus in Arabic:
Jesus in the Arabic dictionary refers to Isa the messenger of God.
The European Christian form of the name Jesus is derived, of course, from the Greek ’Inoou in the Gospel.
Which was a translation of the Hebrew Yeshua, a shortened form of Yehoshua (Joshua).
The meaning of the name is ‘God’s salvation, or ‘he whose salvation is Yahweh’.
The final Greek and European words for Jesus are quite antisemitic.
The old Syriac Yeshii’ is preserved in the modern Arabic translation of the Gospel as Yasii’.
Isa name meaning:
The proper name of Jesus in the Quran is ‘Isa, which (Isa name) is used in the personal sense without explanation.
The form Isa name has given rise to considerable comment though there is general agreement that ‘Isa name came from the Syriac Yeshu’ which derived it from the Hebrew Yeshua.
The classical Muslim commentator al-Baidawi dismissed fanciful efforts at providing an etymology for Isa name, such as one which would derive it from ‘ayasun, which means ‘white with a shade of red’.
He said that Isa name was an Arabized form of Ishu, probably meaning the Syriac Yeshu.

The birth of Isa (Jesus):
There is no disagreement between Muslims and Christians that the birth of Isa was miraculous.
Allah created Isa without a father, but with a mother, the pious Virgin Mary.
Allah, who has only to say ‘Be’ to a thing in order to bring it into existence, blew the spirit of Isa into Mary via the Angel Gabriel.
In the Quran Allah mentioned in surah Maryam, verses (19:21), the longest version of the annunciation and birth of Isa.
Prophet Jesus (Isa) :
The Qur’an clarifies that the Messiah, Isa, is a prophet, a messenger.
Allah says:” The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him.” (Al-Mā’idah-75)
Muslims believe that Isa was a prophet who was given a special message—Injil, or the gospel—to convey to all people.
How is Jesus God as they claimed?
The message of Jesus both confirmed what was taught in the Torah and foretold the coming of Prophet Muhammad. Thus, Jesus has a vital and unique role to play in the Muslim faith.
This shows that like all other Prophets, Isa as prophet also based his teachings on the following three fundamentals:
- The Supreme Authority to which mankind should submit and surrender exclusively belongs to Allah and all the social and moral systems should be built entirely on it.
- Being a representative of the same Paramount Power, a prophet must be obeyed unconditionally.
- Allah alone is entitled to prescribe laws and regulations for making things lawful or unlawful, pure and impure, consequently, all laws imposed by others must be abolished.
Prophet Isa miracles:
That Isa was a great healer of the sick is confirmed by the Qur’an.
Prophet Isa miracles are mentioned in summary form with little detail, that is, they are accepted but not recounted.
Ishaq Husaini says, ‘the Qur’an enumerated the miracles of Christ which were signs of his prophecy . . . It is noteworthy that Muhammad did not attribute miracles to himself. The Qur’an is his only miracle . . . All these miracles Christ produced by the will of God in order to convince those who doubted his mission.”
The Gospel, which gives the detail of the miracles of Jesus, attributes them to his compassion for the needy.
The Quran refers to the prophet Isa miracles in many verses of the Quran (5,109-110)- (3,43149).
Prophet Isa miracles such as Raised the Dead, Healed the Sick, Blind, and others are mentioned in the Quran.
Isa in the Quran:
Judging by the number of verses and amount of details, the information given in the Quran about Isa is extensive.
We would venture to say that, as a Quranic figure Isa is portrayed with more comprehensiveness than any other.
It should be made clear that the Quran is not a historical or biographical work in a literal sense.
In another word, the information given about Isa was given through Revelation.
Isa in the Quran was mentioned in multiple words in thirteen Surahs.
Isa in the Quran in these places was mentioned twenty-five times with the word “Isa”, and eleven times with the word “Al-Massih”, and sixteen times with the word “Isa ibn (Son of) Maryam,” and seventeen times with the word “(son of) ibn Maryam,” as it was referred to in Surat Maryam “as the Prophet,” and in Surahs An-Nisa and Al-Ma’idah as “the Messenger.”
There is no one verse supporting the claim that Jesus is God. How is Jesus God without one verse referring to that?
Do Muslim believe in Isa (Jesus)?
Concerning Muslims’ belief, they are commanded by Allah to believe in all prophets, without discrimination.
All prophets our love and reverence.
But those who underwent particular hardship and particular suffering command our special love and reverence.
Muslims believe that Isa stands among that number with Muhammad (PBUH).
A Muslim’s belief in Isa must equal his belief in Muhammad himself.
Whenever the name of Isa is mentioned in Quran a Muslim’s eyes are full of tears and his heart is full of affection.
Indeed, this feeling runs so deep that Muslims give their children the names of Isa and Maryam.
Muslims believe in Isa as a prophet and messenger of Allah.
Allah says:” And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O Children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Aḥmad.”
Is prophet Isa (Jesus) still alive?
Allah says in the Quran: “[Mention] when Allāh said, “O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself.”
Traditional Muslim interpretation has been that the Jews tried to kill Isa but were unable to do so.
As for Christianity, One story tells of Isa hiding in a niche in a wall and one of his companions being killed in his place.
This may refer to the two places in the Gospel, before the crucifixion, where Isa avoided enemies to escape premature death. (Luke 4,30; John 8,59)
The four Gospels agree on the real death of Jesus on the cross and give the centurion’s witness to this. (Mk. 15,45) John adds the piercing of his side with a spear.
According to the evidence, we can be sure that Isa did not kill by the Jews but Allah raised him up till a specific time.
How old was Isa (Jesus) when he died (raised up)?
Prophet Isa was thirty-three years old when the Jews wanted to kill him. However, Allah saved him from them.
When is Isa (Jesus) coming back again?
Allah says: ‘Allah raised him to himself’.
The coming of Isa (second coming) back suggests the Biblical story of the Ascension. But if Isa is held to have returned to send out the disciples, then the parallel is rather with the resurrection appearances of the Gospel.
These are not mentioned in the Quran, but they are not denied, and they agree with the common interpretation.
Isa shall descend before the Day of Judgment. Isa’s descent will be one of the great signs of the nearing of the Day of Judgment.
Baidwai said that the coming of Isa would descend in the Holy Land.
Isa would kill al-Dajja1, the Anti-Christ, and go to Jerusalem, worshipping there, killing swine and all who do not believe in him, reign in peace for forty years, and finally die and be buried in Medina.
Isa Jesus God?
Is God and Jesus the same person?
Allah says on the Qur’an:
“They have certainly disbelieved who say, “God is the Christ, the son of Mary” while the Christ has said, “O Children of Israel, serve God, my Lord, and your Lord.” (5:72)
Luke 4:8, Gospel:
“[So] you will prostrate to the Lord your God, and you will serve only Him.”
How is Jesus God? How can humans become God?
We should note that the prophecy refers to a man, not a God.
The prophet Isa never dreamt of speaking as a god in his foretelling, how is Jesus God then?
The biographical details we have of Isa show that he acted really like a servant to a master, he commenced his mission at a certain time.
When he was 30 years old, this indicates that he followed a commandment and did not begin preaching according to his own will.
Isa prayed to God seeking His help. Isa acted precisely as a servant to the Lord.
When he expressed his inferior power to that of God.
When he was asked by a lady, to accommodate her two sons in his kingdom, one on his right hand other on his left, Isa said:
“You do not know what you asking. Are you able to drink the cup I am to drink?
They said we are able. He said to them. You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and to my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my father.”
Isa acted exactly in the same manner as a creator controlled by God.
There is no evidence refers to that Isa is God or Son of God, but it is just falsification to the words of God.
If he is a God. Does God pray to keep himself away from death?
How is Jesus God? It is a question they tried to fabricate an answer using the words of Allah but they will always get nothing and the truth always clear.
Do Muslims celebrate Christmas?
Muslims do not celebrate Christmas. check the reasons
As far as celebrating Christmas as the birthday of Isa (Jesus) is concerned, Muslim Community does not celebrate it, just as we do not celebrate the birthdays of any other prophet.
Muslims believe that celebrating a prophet’s birth amounts to adopting that prophet’s teachings as a way of life.
If the teachings are not followed, the Almighty’s displeasure is invoked.
Dajjal means a grave liar.
Since Dajjal will also tell a lie by mixing the truth with falsehood, he is also called Dajjal.
He will first present himself as a believer and will call people towards good but later on, he will claim to be a prophet and finally to be God. It is said that he will be of Jewish origin.
Based on Ahadith, the following appearance of Dajjal has been narrated.
He will be a tall and one-eyed young man. His defective eye will be like a swollen grape and the other eye will be blood-stained. His chest will be wide but slightly sunken.
He will have a wide forehead with Kufr meaning Kafir written between both of his eyes. Every Muslim will be able to read it whether he knows how to read and write or not. Dajjal will have curly hair.
