Christian Judge Orders Muslims to Memorize Qur’an



A Christian judge in northern Lebanon has ordered three young Muslims to memorize a chapter of the Holy Qur’an after they were convicted of insulting Mary, the mother of Jesus (peace be upon him).

“The law is a school and not just a prison,” Judge Joceline Matta said, Ilmfeed reported.

Matta ordered the men to memorize a chapter of the Qur’an called ‘Aal-Imran’, or the Family of Imran. Imran is the father of Maryam or Mary according to the Quran, and the verses make mention of Jesus and Mary.

The judge’s decision was praised by Lebanese prime minister who welcomed the sentence saying it was a great way of creating understanding between both religions.

Muslims believe in Jesus as one of the great Prophets of God and that he is the son of the Virgin, Mary, but not the Son of God. He was conceived and born miraculously.

In the Noble Qur’an, Jesus is called “Isa”. He is also known as Al-Masih (the Christ) and Ibn Maryam (Son of Mary).

As for his crucifixion, Muslims believe that Jesus was not crucified but was lifted up to heaven.

Muslims believe that Jesus will come back to earth before the end of time to restore peace and order, fight the Anti-Christ (Al-Masih Al-Dajjal) and bring victory for truth and righteousness.
