Is Allah Jesus?

10 Things Christians Should Know About Muslims And Jesus

A December 2019 Gallup poll found that the percentage of Americans who describe their Christmas celebrations as "strongly religious" has dropped to 35 percent. This is down from about half in previous measures in 2005 and 2010. Nonetheless, Christmas is celebrated by over 90 percent of Americans, which commemorates the birth of Prophet Jesus, God’s peace be upon him.

He is the central figure of Christianity, the religion of the European settlers who came to the country, and whose influence has defined American culture for over two centuries. What few Americans know is that he is important in Islam as well.
Is Allah Jesus? Here are 10 key things to know about Jesus in Islam:

  1. Jesus is considered a Prophet and Messenger of the One, All-Powerful God. Muslims offer words of prayer after saying his name, as they do for other Prophets and Messengers. In English, the phrase “peace be upon him” is a prayer seeking God’s peace for the Prophet being spoken of. 
  2. Muslims love Jesus. We also love Abraham, Moses, and Noah, to name just a few other Prophets Muslims revere. May God's peace be upon all of these great Messengers of God.
  3. Muslims also love the mother of Jesus, Mary. We believe she was a pious and noble woman chosen over all of the women of the world. The 19th chapter of the Quran is named after her. 
  4. Muslims believe that Jesus was born miraculously of a virgin mother and no father. His birth is miraculous like the birth of Prophet Adam, the first human being, who was created with neither mother nor father (Quran 3:59).
  5. Muslims do not believe that Jesus was the son of God (Quran 5:116). God is so Powerful and Self-Sufficient that He does not need a son or any kind of partner.
  6. In the Arabic Bible the name for God is “Allah”. Arab Christians call God “Allah”, as Muslims do. Prophet Jesus is called “Eesa” in Arabic (sometimes spelled “Isa” or “Eissa” in English).
  7. Jesus did not die on the cross. Rather, God saved him from his enemies and it was made to appear that he was killed (Quran 4:157). He was raised to Heaven.
  8. Jesus performed miracles by the Will of God, like healing the blind and those with leprosy (Quran 3:49).
  9. Jesus prayed to the same All-Powerful One God as all of the Prophets who preceded and succeeded him. 
  10. Jesus will return before the end of the world.


Hey there,
I respect and encourage the fact that you opened up a delicate subject with no harsh intentions, but with love for universal peace and true freedom.

This matter about wether Jesus is the son of God ( Allah) or not, has made great thinkers try to encode this mystery, but with no definite answers.

But let me clarify my point of view as a Christian and an Arab.

First, the first verse you gave doesn't show any contradictions to the fact that Jesus is son of God, but rather another unrelated message, which is that : it's not by pretending that we're calling the Lord several times that we will earn eternal life, but by showing our real love to Him ( with prayer, good actions and love for every Godly creature : nature and Human beings).

Second, with all due respect to Islam and to the profound and deep messages of love that decorate the holy Qur'an, the second verse you gave has nothing to do with the Bible, and therefore nothing to do with what came out of Jesus and the teachings that He has given to us. If we have to discuss christian theology or philosophy, then we have to discuss it over its reference book and not other books, since Christianity derived from the Bible and not the holy Qur'an. So if the problem resides in Christian philosophy, then it should be solved in Christian teachings.

Third, i would like to share my personal view over what trinity is, but before that, we have to understand that, according to Christianity, we won't ever understand such a big, Godly conception with our reduced humble minds.
The ultimate God, the only and mighty God, has shown to Christianity 3 major capacities of Him, so He can make us understand how He works in general. There's one God. if we get to go to Heaven now, we will see just one mighty King sitting on a throne, smiling to us. And not 3 persons sharing the title of Creator. or else it won't make sense.
But i am already making huge mistakes by simply giving a description of God, since He said, we will see what our eyes never saw, nor will hear what our ears ever heard etc..

But i'm trying to get to a point where i can simplify what God in Christianity is.
God communicated with prophets, but he never did that physically, but rather with the same method, which is through visions, feelings, ideas, wisdom, leadership etc.. Therefore, God simply communicated using the surrounding of the prophet but with a strong Godly impact to avoid misunderstandings. This is what we call the Holy Spirit of God, kind of one of His 3 capacities.

This holy spirit still is present in every one of us, simply because God loves us and wants to be too close to us and to our hearts. Because God is love and forgiveness, and we are called his children. And that's what taught us Jesus.
Jesus is God in Christianity, he is the "son" of God because He humbly appeared as a human, and humans are the creation of God, therefore he called himself "son of God" (my interpretation: son of his own Creation). We call Him God because what He did, and what He taught were Godly and what God actually wanted from us. God came Himself to us to be close and to teach us how to live and how to love and how to truly be his creation, His Godly creation. He is not that pretentious and egocentric and the "too perfect" guy who can't come to us because we are too bad for Him or too worthless. Although we are worthless, we are bad, we are weak, and yes ,He's too perfect for us. But He came to show us what real perfection is, perfection is Love, and Forgiveness, and He came to forgive us, to show us that the biggest king between us should serve the most miserable poor of us. And that's definitely a non Human action.

It's hard to understand what the real conception is since He is God, and He won't show himself entirely simply because our physical brains doesn't have the available capacity, he just wants us to be like kids, stop thinking and worrying, and follow Him, just as we blindly follow our parents when we're kids.

Jesus gave too many signs that He is God, He "resimulated" Godly actions : He gave life, He rose the dead up, He healed, He forgave, He loved, He never sinned, and He didn't die (He did, but broke the law of death, to prove that He defeated Human weakness). That's what proves to us that He is God. Humans do sin, but since He is God --> He is perfect, and even if He's human as Jesus, his perfectness can't lead to " Him falling in sins" , Proof : he resisted the devil in the desert, he accepted to die for us, although he never did anything wrong ( he could've defended himself with words, lies, accusations, cries, and all sort of Human weaknesses that appears when we are put in a hard situation, especially facing death), he Healed the sick, he forgave the sinners, he healed the possessed, he showed purity and perfection which is the absence of sins.

Another proof, between many others, ( i won't get any longer because i already said too much), is that in the end of the Bible, Jesus said to his disciples, "I" will send you the Holy spirit so you can preach to the world my teachings. And it Happened, in fact, we have now the Bible ( the new testament precisely), written by four followers of Christ and who wrote it with no mistakes, since the Holy Spirit of God was strongly active in them ( therefore, God wrote the New Testament, through His disciples in analogy to the Holy Qur'an which is God's book written by the prophet muhammad pbuh). And the last time Jesus appeared to his disciples before going back to God, he asked them to preach : "in the name of the Father, The Son and the Holy spirit" , in the name of the 3 faculties of God that brought to Humans: Privilege, Forgiveness and love.

Please Consider my reply as friendly as your intentions while writing your post, i appreciate your consideration of my own response, as i just intended to express my point of view with what my religion is to me with all due respect to all the other religions, and especially Islam which preaches and love the same one God of ours.

We just Have to Love.



This was a very helpful article...we should always be willing to better understand the way other people think...thanks


What Do Muslims Believe about Jesus?

Muslims respect and revere Jesus (peace be upon him). They consider him one of the greatest of God’s messengers to mankind. The Quran confirms his virgin birth, and a chapter of the Quran is entitled ‘Maryam’ (Mary). The Quran describes the birth of Jesus as follows:

(Remember) when the angels said, “O Mary, God gives you good news of a word from Him (God), whose name is the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, revered in this world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near (to God). He will speak to the people from his cradle and as a man, and he is of the righteous.” She said, “My Lord, how can I have a child when no mortal has touched me?” He said, “So (it will be). God creates what He wills. If He decrees a thing, He says to it only, ‘Be!’ and it is.” (Quran, 3:45-47)

Jesus was born miraculously by the command of God, the same command that had brought Adam into being with neither a father nor a mother. God has said:

The case of Jesus with God is like the case of Adam. He created him from dust, and then He said to him, “Be!” and he came into being. (Quran, 3:59)

During his prophetic mission, Jesus performed many miracles. God tells us that Jesus said:

“I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. I make for you the shape of a bird out of clay, I breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God’s permission. I heal the blind from birth and the leper. And I bring the dead to life by God’s permission. And I tell you what you eat and what you store in your houses....” (Quran, 3:49)

Muslims believe that Jesus was not crucified. It was the plan of Jesus’ enemies to crucify him, but God saved him and raised him up to Him. And the likeness of Jesus was put over another man. Jesus’ enemies took this man and crucified him, thinking that he was Jesus. God has said:

...They said, “We killed the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of God.” They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but the likeness of him was put on another man (and they killed that man)... (Quran, 4:157)

Neither Muhammad nor Jesus came to change the basic doctrine of the belief in one God, brought by earlier prophets, but rather to confirm and renew it.1

(1) Muslims also believe that God revealed a holy book to Jesus called the Injeel, some parts of which may be still available in the teachings of God to Jesus in the New Testament. But this does not mean that Muslims believe in the Bible we have today because it is not the original scriptures that were revealed by God. They underwent alterations, additions, and omissions. This was also said by the Committee charged with revising The Holy Bible (Revised Standard Version). This Committee consisted of thirty-two scholars who served as members of the Committee. They secured the review and counsel of an Advisory Board of fifty representatives of the co-operating denominations. The Committee said in the Preface to The Holy Bible (Revised Standard Version), p. iv, “Sometimes it is evident that the text has suffered in transmission, but none of the versions provides a satisfactory restoration. Here we can only follow the best judgment of competent scholars as to the most probable reconstruction of the original text.” The Committee also said in the Preface, p. vii, “Notes are added which indicate significant variations, additions, or omissions in the ancient authorities (Mt 9.34; Mk 3.16; 7.4; Lk 24.32, 51, etc.).”

Belief in Mary's immaculate conception and Jesus' virgin birth are not based on clear-cut Bible and Qur'an proofs. They do not cite a single virgin birth case. If so, prove by arguments on specific quotes. Test me and I will give you specifics in detail on how John was the husband of Mary and father of Jesus from the Bible and Qur'an.
For example, in this way, with Peter's inspired Sermon:
'Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God
among you, by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the
midst of you, as ye yourselves know;
Men and Brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is
both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day.
Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him,
that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit
on his throne.' Acts 2: 22, 29 -30

And Jesus himself confirming its fulfillment with:
'I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.
I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.' Rev. 22: 16
Christ's father foretold: Isaiah 9: 6
1. For unto us a child is born Luke 1:13
2. unto us a son is given Luke 1: 57
3. And the govt. shall be on his shoulder Luke 1: 76
4. And his name shall be called Wonderful Luke 1: 63
5. Counselor John was given the Book Jesus was taught the Book
6. The mighty God - John was God by name (Elias) and by Law
7. The everlasting Father: John spoke as Father; Jesus spoke as Son
8. The Prince of Peace: John was enveloped in peace Luke 1: 79 Q. 19: 15

Christ's mother foretold:
'Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive
and bear a son, and shall call his name Im-man-u-el.' Isaiah 7: 16
What 4 words tell:
1. virgin Isaiah spoke of a virgin. He said nothing of virgin birth
Sarah an Elizabeth were chaste but were not virgins
2. conceive conception was by blood-clot. Mary's egg was mated by a male sperm
of her kind. No word of immaculate conception
3. bear the seed of David planted took root, grew and bear Jesus in Mary's body
4. Immanuel son of a man in whom dwell the spirit of God.

Compare Matthew's forgery, quoting Isaiah:
'A virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son and they shall
call his name E not I man-u-el (God with us)
El-i-as means 'God with us' not Immanuel. John was Elias.

Jesus, as foretold; told and retold by 7 names, 1 format, in2 words:
1. son of Adam - offspring of a human earthly father
2. son of Abraham - Semitic race, color and creed of his father
3. son of David - his paternal descent by root, seed, DNA
4. son of man - human child of a human father
5. Son of God - son of John. John was Elias and Elias means God present
6. Son of the the Highest son of John. In power and spirit of Elias John was the
Prophet/Power of the Highest Luke 1: 76
7. son of Mary - 'son' means a male child of his parents. Mary's egg was used
to formulate Jesus. That so, therefore, her egg was mated by
the sperm of Jesus' father. e.g.

'thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son' Luke 1: 13
'thy wife Sarah shall bear thee a son' Gen: 17: 19



ONE THING FOR SURE THERE IS A HEAVEN AND A HELL FOR ETERNAL LIFE AFTER DEATH. One thing for sure is one day you will believe that Jesus Christ is God's son. Because we all are going to meet him. He is the one that will say where we spend eternity. Is it worth hell to deny him? God loves all humans and wants us to love each other. Pray to God and ask him to reveal Jesus to you and ask him to forgive your sins in Jesus name. Read the Holy bible and pray for understanding, the truth is there. A true believer loves all humans regardless of where he comes from. Show love to each other.



Have you even read the bible? That thing is a mess. I left Christianity because of that thing and reverted to Islam after reading the Qur'ān and fell in love with it


Miami, Florida

Yeah i've read the Bible.
Give me just one mess in it, and i'll give you 10 messes in other books.
The mess you might consider in the Bible (we're talking about the new testament) , is actually a good different teaching that we might reject as it is "different" from this world's injustice and misery.
