BIRTH OF JESUS ( A Quranic Conception)
Relate in the Book (they story of) Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.
She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our Angel, and he appeared before her as a man in all respects,
She said: “I seek refuge from thee to (God) Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear God”.
He said: ‘Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son.”
She said: “Now shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?”.
He said: “So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, ‘That is easy for me: and (we wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us’: It is a matter (so) decreed)”.
So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place…
At lenght she brought (the babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms).
They said: “O Mary! Truly an amazing thing has thou brought!-
“O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!”.
But she pointed to the babe. They said: “How can we talk to one who is a child on the cradle?”.
He (the babe) said: “I am indeed a servant of God; He hath given me Revelation and made me a prophet: And he hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me, Prayer and Charity
as long as I live; (He) hath made me kind to my mother and not overbearing or miserable; so Peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again).”
Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute.
(HOLY QURAN 19:16-34).
Jesus is Not God
And behold. God will say: “O Jesus son of Mary! Did’st thou say unto men, ‘Worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God’?”
He will say, “Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). had I said such a thing, Thou would’st indeed have Known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, though I Know not what is in Thine. For Thou Knowest in full all that is hidden. Never said I to them aught except what Thou did’st command me to say, to wit, ‘worship God, my Lord and your Lord’.” (HOLY QURAN 5:119-120)
Muhammad(S.A.W.) is not God
Say thou (O Muhammad to the people): “I am but a man like you: it is revealed to me by inspiration, that your God is One God: so stand true to Him, and ask for His foregiveness.” And woe to those who join
gods with God. (Holy QURAN 41:6).
Same peaple maintain that Muslims worship Muhammad instead of God, and call them “Muhammedans”. The above verse gives the lie to such an allegation as Muhammad(S.A.W.) never claimed himself to be a god. He as a prophet like any other messenger of God. The word “Muhammedanism” as
applied to the Islamic religion is a misnomer. Islam means submission to the will of God and its followers are called Muslims.
How then can man be justified with God? Or how can be he clean that is born of woman?- (JOB 25:4).
