Jesus (Isah) in The Quran.
How Jesus Was Referred in Islam
Jesus, or Isah, as he is referred to in Arabic is believed to be a prophet by Islam to be a Muslim prophet, rather than Jesus, who is the Son of God or God in the flesh. He is mentioned by name in more than 25 verses in the Quran and is described by the name “Word” and the “Spirit” of God.
In reality, Islam reveres both Jesus as well as the mother of Jesus, Mary (Joseph is not mentioned in any of the Islamic accounts concerning Jesus’ birth). “Unlike those canonical Gospels, however, the Quran turns back to Jesus’s amazing birth instead of forward towards the time of his Passion.
This is the reason he is often called ‘the son of Mary’ and the reason the mother and son frequently are seen as a couple.” In reality, Mary, or Maryam as she is referred to in the Quran is believed by Muslims to be the highest spiritual status in the world of women. Maryam is the only woman named in the holy book of Islam and a chapter from the Quran is named for her.
In numerous locations, Jesus was mentioned within the Quran.
- In fact, We handed over to Moses The Book and then sent several messengers. We also gave Jesus the son of Mary with evidence that was clear and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Why is it that each when a messenger approaches your Israelites with something that you dislike You become confident, dismissing others and even murdering others? [Surah Al-Baqarah; 2:87]
- Speak, O faith-based people, “We believe in Allah and the revelations that have been made to us. What was given to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants; and also what was revealed to Moses, Jesus, and other prophets by their Lord. We don’t make any distinction between the prophets. To Allah the Almighty, we are all submitting.” (Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:1362.36
- We’ve chosen a few of these messengers over others. Allah addressed directly certain and elevated a few in the ranks. To Jesus the son of Mary, We presented evidence that was clear and backed Jesus with the Holy Spirit. If Allah had wished, the following generations would not have been fighting with each other after having received the evidence. However, they had their differences. Some believed while others believed. However, even if Allah would have had His way that they did not, they wouldn’t be fighting against one another. However, Allah does as He pleases. [Surah Al-Baqarah; 2:253]
- Remember the time when angels declared, “O Mary! Allah will give you the excellent message from Him His name will be Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary honored in this life and the future, and he will be among the people closest to Allah. [Surah Ali-Imran; 3:45]
- When Jesus was confronted by disbelief among his disciples, he posed the question, “Who will stand up with me for Allah?” The disciples responded, “We will stand up for Allah. The faith we have in Allah therefore, we will prove that we have complied.” (Surah Ali Imran; 3:52[Surah Ali-Imran; 3:52]
- Remember the time when Allah spoke, “O Jesus! I will come to you and lift you up to Me. I will free you from those who doubt and raise your followers above the unbelievers until the Day of Judgment. When you return to Me, you will all be returned, as I’ll settle your disagreements. [Surah Ali-Imran; 3:55]
- Indeed, the life of Jesus in the eyes of Allah is similar to that of Adam. He made him out of dust and said to Jesus, “Be!” And He was! [Surah Ali-Imran; 3:59]
- Say, Prophet “We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants; and what was given to Moses, Jesus, and other prophets from their Lord–we make no distinction between any of them, and to Him, we fully submit”. [Surah Ali-Imran; 3:84]
