-------------------------------------------------
24. Prophet Isa Ibn Mariam (AS)



Isa was a true messenger of Allah like others before him
----------------------------------------------------------

[2:87] We gave Musa the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers; We gave 'Isa, the son of Maryam, Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the Holy Spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you a Messenger with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride? Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!

Allah refutes the claim of the socalled Jews and christians that following them will not lead to salvation but destruction since it is not the religion of Ibrahim but an invention.

[2:135] They say: "Become Jews or Christians if ye would be guided (to salvation)." Say thou: "Nay! (I would rather) the Religion of Ibrahim, the True, and he joined not gods with Allah."

[2:136] Say ye: "We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Ibrahim, Isma'il, Ishaq, Ya'qub, and the Tribes, and that given to Musa and 'Isa, and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord: we make no difference between one and another of them: and we bow to Allah (in Islam)."



Allah takes covenant from the Prophets

-----------------------------------------

Allah took covenant of all his messengers (including Isa ) before they preached his message to the common mass.

[3:81] Behold! Allah took the Covenant of the Prophets, saying: "I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you a Messenger, confirming what is with you; do you believe him and render him help." Allah said: "Do ye agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?" They said: "We agree." He said: "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses."


Glimpse into the life of Maryam (AS) Isa's Mother
---------------------------------------------------

[3:42] Behold! the angels said: "O Maryam! Allah hath chosen thee and purified thee, chosen thee above the women of all nations.

[3:43] "O Maryam! worship thy Lord devoutly; prostrate thyself, and bow down (in prayer) with those who bow down."

[3:44] "This is part of the tidings of the things unseen, which We reveal unto thee (O Prophet Muhammed!) by inspiration: thou wast not with them when they cast lots with arrows, as to which of them should be charged with the care of Maryam: nor wast thou with them when they disputed (the point).



Angels deliver The news of Isa's birth
---------------------------------------

The story of Maryam (as) is one full of miracles and signs that Allah has power over everything. Although she was virgin, she gave birth to a child - a miracle of Allah. in order to protect her chastity Allah made the baby she delivered speak to the common people in the cradel itself.

[3:45] Behold! the angels said: "O Maryam! Allah giveth Thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Al-Masih 'Isa. The son of Maryam, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah;

[3:46] "He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. And he shall be (of the company) of the righteous."

[3:47] She said: "O my Lord! how shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?" He said: "Even so: Allah createth what He willeth: when He hath decreed a Plan, He but saith to it, `Be', and it is!

[19:16] Relate in the Book (the story of) Maryam, when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.

[19:17] 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.

[19:18] She said: "I seek refuge from thee to (Allah) Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear Allah."

[19:19] He said: "Nay, I am only a Messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son."

[19:20] She said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?"

[19:21] 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 matter (so) decreed."

[19:22] So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place.

[3:48] "And Allah will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Taurat and the Injeel,



Maryam (AS) resides in seclusion at the time of birth of Isa
-------------------------------------------------------------

[19:23] And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree: she cried (in her anguish) "Ah! would that I had died before this! would that I had been a thing forgotten and out of sight!"

[19:24] But (a voice) cried to her from beneath the (palm-tree): "Grieve not! for thy Lord hath provided a rivulet beneath thee;

[19:25] "And shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree; it will let fall fresh ripe dates upon thee.

[19:26] "So eat and drink and cool (thine) eye. And if thou dost see any man, say, 'I have vowed a fast to (Allah) Most Gracious, and this day will I enter into no talk with any human being'"



Isa Speaks in childhood defending her mother
-----------------------------------------------

[19:27] At length she brought the (babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said: "O Maryam! truly an amazing thing hast thou brought!

[19:28] "O sister of Harun! thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!"

[19:29] But she pointed to the babe. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?"

[19:30] He said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet;

[19:31] "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live:

[19:32] "(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable;

[19:33] "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)!"

[19:34] Such (was) 'Isa the son of Maryam: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute.



The miracles of Isa as a sign that he was Allah's Messenger
-------------------------------------------------------------

[3:49] "And (appoint him) a Messenger to the Children of Israel, (with this message): "I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah's leave: and I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I quicken the dead, by Allah's leave; and I declare to you what ye eat, and what ye store in your houses. Surely therein is a Sign for you if ye did believe;

[3:50] "(I have come to you), to attest the Law which was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was (before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah, and obey me.

[3:51] "It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him. This is a Way that is straight."



Isa gives glad tidings of Prophet Muhammed but the people disbelieved
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

[61:6] And remember, 'Isa, the son of Maryam, said: "O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad." But when he came to them with Clear Signs they said, "This is evident sorcery!"


All is a single brotherhood
---------------------------

[21:92] Verily, this Brotherhood of yours is a single Brotherhood, and I am your Lord and Cherisher: therefore serve Me (and no other).

[21:93] But (later generations) cut off their affairs (of unity), one from another: (yet) will they all return to Us.



Isa's Desciples
---------------

[3:52] When 'Isa found unbelief on their part he said: "Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah?" Said the disciples: "We are Allah's helpers: we believe in Allah, and do thou bear witness that we are Muslims.

[3:53] "Our Lord! we believe in what Thou hast revealed, and we follow the Messenger; then write us down among those who bear witness."

[3:54] And (then Unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.



Isa's Disciples demand a Divine Table
---------------------------------------

[5:112] Behold! the Disciples said: "O 'Isa the son of Maryam! can thy Lord send down to us a Table set (with viands) from heaven?" Said 'Isa: "Fear Allah, if ye have faith."

[5:113] They said: "We only wish to eat thereof and satisfy our hearts, and to know that thou has indeed told us the truth; and that we ourselves may be witnesses to the miracle."

[5:114] Said 'Isa the son of Maryam: "O Allah our Lord! send us from heaven a Table set (with viands), that there may be for us - for the first and the last of us - a solemn festival and a Sign from Thee; and provide for our sustenance, for Thou art the best Sustainer (of our needs)."

[5:115] Allah said: "I will send it down unto you; but if any of you after that resisteth faith, I will punish him with a penalty such as I have not inflicted on any one among all the peoples."



The falsehood of Trinity
------------------------

Although the christian community has failed to proe the false concept of trinity from the present day Bible, Allah too refuted this claim in the Quran.

[4:171] O People of the Book! commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Al-Masih 'Isa the son of Maryam was (no more than) A Messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Maryam, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is One God:glory be to Him: (far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

[4:172] Al-Masih disdaineth not to serve and worship Allah, nor do the angels, those nearest (to Allah): those who disdain His worship and are arrogant, He will gather them all together unto Himself to (answer).



It does not fit Allah to have sons and daughters
-------------------------------------------------

Remember Allah is not human and free from such needs.

[19:35] It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, "Be," and it is.


Distortion of book by tongue
------------------------------

Corrupt Rabbis made it a habit to distort the books with their tongue in order to suit their hunger for wealth.

[3:78] There is among them a section who distort the Book with their tongues: (as they read) you would think it is a part of the Book, but it is no part of the Book; and they say, "That is from Allah," but it is not from Allah: it is they who tell a lie against Allah, and (well) they know it!


How could a prophet say "worship me"
----------------------------------------

[3:79] It is not (possible) that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, and the Prophetic office, should say to people: "Be ye my worshippers rather than Allah's": on the contrary (he would say): "Be ye worshippers of Him Who is truly the Cherisher of all: for ye have taught the Book and ye have studied it earnestly."

[3:80] Nor would he instruct you to take angels and Prophets for Lords and Patrons. What! would he bid you to unbelief after ye have bowed your will (to Allah in Islam)?



Muhammed (saw) would have been the first to worship if Allah had a son
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

[43:81] Say: "If (Allah) Most Gracious had a son, I would be the first to worship."


Allah will question Isa
-----------------------

On the day of resurrection Allah will question Isa on the issue of him being son of God or God !!

[5:116] And behold! Allah will say: "O 'Isa the son of Maryam! didst thou say unto men, 'Worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah'?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing,Thou wouldst 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.

[5:117] "Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say, to wit, 'Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord'; and I was a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when thou didst take me up thou wast the Watcher over them, and Thou art a witness to all things.

[5:118] "If Thou dost punish them, they are Thy servants: if Thou dost forgive them, Thou art the Exalted in power, the Wise."

[5:119] Allah will say: "This is a day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath, their eternal home: Allah well-pleased with them, and they with Allah: that is the great salvation, (The fulfilment of all desires).


The terrible effect of this blasphemy
-------------------------------------

[19:88] They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!"

[19:89] Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

[19:90] As if the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin.

[19:91] That they should invoke a son for (Allah) Most Gracious.

[19:92] For it is not consonant with the majesty of (Allah) Most Gracious that He should beget a son.

[19:93] Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must come to (Allah) Most Gracious as a servant.

[19:94] He does take an account of them (all), and hath numbered them (all) exactly

[19:95] And every one of them will come to Him singly on the Day of Judgment.

[6:101] To Him is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth: how can He have a son when He hath no wife? He created all things, and He hath full knowledge of all things.

[6:102] That is Allah, your Lord! There is no god but He, the Creator of all things; then worship ye Him; and He hath power to dispose of all affairs.



One should not take priests and other's as authorities of Allah

----------------------------------------------------------------

Islam re-imposes the fact that a person is responsible for his deeds. Therefore one should not merely rely on priests and other knowledgable persons but should spend his own time and energy in veryfying the truth in order to be successfull and save oneself from hell-fire.

[9:31] They take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of Allah, and (they take as their Lord) Al-Masih, the son of Maryam; yet they were commanded to worship but One God: there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him:(far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him).

[9:32] Fain would they extinguish Allah's Light with their mouths, but Allah will not allow but that His Light should be perfected, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it).



Isa was not killed as believed
-------------------------------

[4:156] That they rejected Faith; that they uttered against Maryam a grave false charge;

[4:157] That they said (in boast), "We killed Al-Masih 'Isa the son of Maryam, the Messenger of Allah"; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.

[4:158] Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.



Isa Second Coming
--------------------

[43:61] And ('Isa) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way.


Resurrections and second coming
-----------------------------------

[3:55] Behold! Allah said: "O 'Isa! I will take thee and raise thee to myself and clear thee (of the falsehood) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject Faith, to the Day of Resurrection: then shall ye all return unto Me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute.

[3:56] "As to those who reject Faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.

[3:57] "As to those who believe and work righteousness, Allah will pay them (in full) their reward; but Allah loveth not those who do wrong.

[3:58] "This is what We rehearse unto thee of the Signs and the Message of Wisdom."

[3:59] The similitude of 'Isa before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him "Be": and he was.

[3:60] The Truth (comes) from thy Lord alone; so be not of those who doubt.



The best way to clear dispute is through...
-------------------------------------------

[3:61] If anyone disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge hath come to thee, say: "Come! let us gather together - our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves - then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!"

Everyone has to beleive in Isa One Day
----------------------------------------

[4:159] And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them.


A Muslim has to believe in all relevations
------------------------------------------

[3:84] Say: "We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Ibrahim, Isma'il, Ishaq, Ya'qub, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Musa, 'Isa, and the Prophets, from their Lord: we make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam)."

Ibrahim was not a jew or christian
-----------------------------------

[3:67] Ibrahim was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was true in Faith, and bowed his will to Allah's (which is Islam), and he joined not god's with Allah.

[3:68] Without doubt, among men, the nearest of kin to Ibrahim, are those who follow him, as are also this Prophet and those who believe: and Allah is the Protector of those who have Faith.



Coming to common terms between Muslims & People of the book
--------------------------------------------------------------------

In order to promote friendly relationship between other faith and Islam, Allah order the Muslims to enjoin each others on what was common amongst all.

[3:64] Say: "O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah." If then they turn back, say ye: "Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah's Will)."
