Jesus Christ in Islam

“Islam is the only non-christian faith which makes it an article of faith for its followers to believe in Jesus (peace be upon him) .No Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus (peace be upon him). We believe that He was One of the mightiest messengers of God , he was the ‘Messiah’ translated Christ , that he was born miraculously without any male intervention , that he gave life to the dead with God’s permission and he healed those born blind and the lepers with God’s permission.”

~ Sheikh Ahmed Deedat

Qur’an refers to Jesus as Esa in Arabic which is same as his name Esau in Hebrew , classical Yeheshua which the christians have latinised as Jesus however Jesus (peace be upon him) never heard the word Jesus in his lifetime.One may wonder to know that Jesus (peace be upon him) is mentioned 25 times by name in Qur’an while Prophet Muhammad is mentioned only 5 times .

Some titles given to Jesus (peace be upon him) in Qur’an are :

  • Ibn Maryam – The son of Mary – Surah Maidah (5:75)
  • Maseeh or Messiah (Hebrew) – Annointed One – Suarh Nisa (4:171)
  • Abdullah – Servant of Allah (God) – Surah Maryam (19:30)
  • Rasullullah – Messenger of Allah (God) – Surah Maidah (5:75)
  • Kalimatullah – A word from Allah (God) – Surah Ale-Imran (3:45)
  • Ruhallah – A spirit from Allah (God) – Suarh Nisa (4:171)
  • Aayah – A sign from Allah (God)

Even The Qur’an has a whole Chapter named ‘Maryam’ (Mary) in respect of The Mother of Jesus . No other chapter in Qur’an has been named on a woman . This respect given to Mary is not even found in the Christian Bible.

The Qur’an refers to Jews and  Christians ( and people with other scriptues ) as ‘Ahle-Kita’b’ meaning ‘The People of the Book (Scripture)’ and addresses them many times .


And [mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds.

~Surah Ale-Imran (3:42)


[And mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary – distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ].

He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous.”

She said, “My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?” [The angel] said, “Such is Allah ; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.

And He will teach him writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel

And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], ‘Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah . And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead – by permission of Allah . And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.

And [I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me.

Indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is the straight path.”

~ Surah Ali-Imran (3:45-51)


Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said, “O Mary, you have certainly done a thing unprecedented.

O sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother unchaste.”

So she pointed to him. They said, “How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?”

[Jesus] said, “Indeed, I am the servant of Allah . He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet.

And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and Charity as long as I remain alive

And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant.

And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive.”

~Surah Maryam (19:27-33)


They say, “Be Jews or Christians [so] you will be guided.” Say, “Rather, [we follow] the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists.”

Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.”

~Surah Al-Baqrah (2:135-136)

Narrated ‘Ubada:

The Prophet said, “If anyone testifies that None has the right to be worshipped but Allah Alone Who has no partners, and that Muhammad is His Servant and His Apostle, and that Jesus is Allah’s Servant and His Apostle and His Word which He bestowed on Mary and a Spirit created by Him, and that Paradise is true, and Hell is true, Allah will admit him into Paradise with the deeds which he had done even if those deeds were few.” (Junada, the sub-narrator said, ” ‘Ubada added, ‘Such a person can enter Paradise through any of its eight gates he likes.”)

~Bukhari :: Book 55 :: Volume 4 :: Hadith 644


[Mention] when Allah said, “O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allah alone] superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, and I will judge between you concerning that in which you used to differ.

~Surah Ale-Imran (3:55)


[The Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Pure Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission; and you healed the blind and the leper with My permission; and when you brought forth the dead with My permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs and those who disbelieved among them said, “This is not but obvious magic.”

~Surah Maidah (5:110)


And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed.

~Surah Baqarah (2:87)

……and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.

~Surah Maidah (5:46)


And indeed, Jesus will be [a sign for] knowledge of the Hour, so be not in doubt of it, and follow Me. This is a straight path.

~Surah Zukhruf (43:61)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it (as charitable gifts).

~ Bukhari :: Book 43 :: Volume 3 :: Hadith 656


They say: “(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!”

Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation That they should invoke a son for (Allah) Most Gracious.

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

~ Surah Maryam (19:88-92)

Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, “Be,” and he was.

~Surah Ale-Imran (3:59)


They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary” while the Messiah has said, “O Children of Israel, worship Allah , my Lord and your Lord.” Indeed, he who associates others with Allah – Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.

~Surah Maidah (5:72)

O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, “Three”; desist – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.

~Surah Nisa (4:171)

The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded.

~Surah Maidah (5:75)


The Jews abused Jesus and boasted that they killed him but The Qur’an comes to tell the truth and rescue Jesus from that allegation , Even christians today believe that Jesus dies a death of accursed but Qur’an says :

That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, 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:-

Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.

~Surah Nisa (4:157-158)


And there is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death. And on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness.

~Surah Nisa (4:159)


Abu Huraira reported many ahadith from Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and one is that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: I am most close to Jesus, son of Mary, among the whole of mankind in this worldly life and the next life. They said: Allah’s Messenger how is it? Thereupon he said: Prophets are brothers in faith, having different mothers. Their religion is, however, one and there is no Apostle between us (between I and Jesus Christ).

~Muslim :: Book 30 : Hadith 5836


ISLAM is not a new religion , it is the religion preached by all Prophets and we believe in all Prophets ,

Qur’an says :

And those who disbelieved say, “Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord?” You are only a warner, and for every people is a guide.

~Surah Ra’d (13:7)

Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.”

~Surah Baqarah (2:136)

Islam comes from the root arabic word ‘Salam’ which means ‘Peace’ , it also comes from the arabic word ‘slim’ meaning ‘To Submit You will to God’.

Muslim means ‘A person who submits his will to One God (Allah in arabic)’.


  • I worship the One True God (NOT TRINITY) who created the universe , who created Jesus , who was worshipped by Jesus.

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.

~  Mark (12:29)

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.

~ Deuteronomy 6:4

  • Jesus was a MUSLIM (Meaning : One who seeks the will of God and Submits to will of God) , So am I ; Jesus did miracles by permission of God and I believe that.

By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to my will but of  him who sent me.

~John (5:30)

  • I believe in the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as was prophecised by Jesus (pbuh) .

~ John (16:7,12-14) [ Also in John (1:21) , Deuteronomy (18:18) , Isaiah (29:12) , Song of Songs (5:16) etc. )

  • I pray as Jesus (pbuh) .

Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

~Matthew (26:39)

  • I take ablution before prayer .

~ Exodus (40:30)

  • I greet people by saying “Peace be on you” like Jesus .

A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”

~John (20:26)

  • Jesus fasted , i too do.

After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.

~ Matthew (4:2)

  • Jesus was circumcised as me and my brothers .

Eight days later, when the baby was circumcised, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel even before he was conceived

~ Luke (2:21)

  • I never drink alcohol , never give or take interest , never eat  pork as done by Jesus .

Assalam Alaykum,

First of all,Im very sorry for posting new year related post late,i was quite busy in site work.hope you understand.

Well, Muharram is actually a New Year in Islamic Lunar Calendar where Muharram is the first month. Its date compared to Gregorian Solar Calendar migrates over time since the Islamic Calendar year is 11 or 12 days shorter than the solar year.

So as the Muslims celebrate this day which symbolizes the two happy event in Muslims’ life, which apart of the start of a new year, it also coincides with the Prophet Muhammad’s journey from Mecca to Medina on the 1st of Muharram 622AD.

“IslamGreatReligion” Team wishes Happy New Year 1433(26th November) Hijri to All Muslims…

As we all know that today the Islamic New Year begins…


I Posted Few New Islamic Year Cards and Images Which you can use to send wishes to your friends and family,I hope you like it.

On this occasion, its a chance for us to begin a new life with complete ISLAM by obeying ALLAH’s orders by following Habeeb Rasool Muhammad(sa) like Sahaba(ra). Before that we have to do ‘Tauba-Isthigfar’ on each of our sins, which committed till this second. Thus our sins will not remain in our ‘A’maal Nama Kithab’(INSHA ALLAH), then we can start a new life with out much more errors, INSHA ALLAH…

Come on Every One, let us ask forgiveness and his mercy from ALLAH, surely HE will grant what we need, INSHA ALLAH.

Do some Good Niyyah that we will never do anymore sins as I am aware that ALLAH is all seeing and HE will ask me about my each and every deeds.

I will try to follow, my Rasool Muhammad(sa) in every aspects of life like Sahaba(ra) had done. Thus in the day of Judgement, Rasool(sa) become much more proud with me than any other else.

Some Important Niyyah every muslim should make..

  • I will not delay any of my Salaah(Prayers), I will perform it on its very time, INSHA ALLAH… Will try my best to perform it with Imaam Jamath on my near by Masjid, INSHA ALLAH…
  • I will recite at least a 2 papers from the HOLY QUR’AAN, and also I will try my best to understand the meaning of each words in the Qur’an, INSHA ALLAH…
  • I will try to find some time to do Dhik’r-Tasbeehath(Remembering ALLAH) on every morning and evening(ie After Fajr and after As’r), INSHA ALLAH…
  • I will try my best to find some time to think about my deeds everyday to diagnose myself to make sure that ‘I am a TRUE MUSLIM’, INSHA ALLAH…

I pray

“O Allah guide us… Unite us… reduce the suffering and hardship of every Muslim…
O Allah give us knowledge and wisdom…give us strength and character…
O Allah Forgive Our Sins,and save us from torture of grave and fire of hell..
O Allah make us obedient to your Commands and the Sunnah of our Holy Prophet (pbuh) and guide
Ummah to success in this world and in the hereafter.”

Summa Ameen…

Yes, dear all…. Lets begin new Life with ISLAM, lets prove that we are not Muslims with names, but with deeds like Sahaba(ra), INSHA ALLAH…

Lets Strive for AKHIRATH!!!

Jazakallahu Khairen….

Do’s & Don’ts of Hajj

Duties of Ihram

If the pilgrim fails to do one of the duties he has to slaughter an animal. If he cannot afford to slaughter an animal, he has to fast The duties of Ihram are:

To make intention of Ihram from the Miqat (Prescribed place from where Ihram starts). Ibn ‘Abbas said:

The Messenger of Allah had designated Dhul-al-Hulaifah for the people of Madinah, Al-Juhfah for the people of Syria, Qarn Al-Manazil for the People of Najd and Yalamlam for the people of Yemen as starting points of Ihram. He further said: These places are for the inhabitants of these region and for those who pass by intending to perform Hajj and ‘Umrah. The starting point to perform Hajj and Umrah for the inhabitants of Makkah is Makkah itself by entering into the state of Ihram and reciting Talbiyah.

Abstaining from wearing sewn clothes, keeping the head uncovered and not wearing shoes.

Repetition of Talbiyah The Talbiyah is as follows:

Labbayk, Allahumma Labbayik — Labbayk La Shareek Laka Labbayk– Innal-hamda Wanimata laka wal-mulk — La shareeka lak.

Here I come to you O Allah. Here I am to worship you. Here I am to respond to you. There is no partner with you. Here I come to you, verily Praise, Bounty, and Dominion belong to you. There is no partner with you.

The Talbiyah is to be uttered when the pilgrim commences Ihram at the Miqat. It is recommended to utter Talbiyah while embarking, disembarking, at the time of Adhan or at the end of Salah.

Sunan (Recommendations) of Ihram

These are the deeds which if a pilgrim fails to perform, no Fidya (ransom or expiation) will be enjoined on him but he will miss great rewards.

Bathing for Ihram. Bathing is also recommended for women in menses and in post delivery state. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordered one of Abu Bakr’s wives, who intended to perform Hajj to wash herself after she had delivered.

Clipping nails, trimming the mustache, plucking the armpit hair and shaving the pubic hair for the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) had done so.

To wear white rida’ and izar (Upper and Lower Ihram garb) because this was the practice of the Messenger (peace be upon him).

To start Ihram after praying an obligatory or supererogatory Salah.

To repeat and renew Talbiyah at the time of embarking, disembarking or Salah.

To supplicate and pray for the Prophet (peace be upon him) after Talbiyah, because the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used to, after reciting Talbiyah, ask Allah for Jannah (Paradise) and used to seek refuge of Allah from the Hellfire.

Prohibitions of Ihram

These are the acts prohibited while one is in the state of Ihram. If one commits any one of them, he has to offer Fidya. They are:

Covering the head.

Shaving or shortening any hair of the body.

Clipping the nails whether of the hands or the feet.

Using perfume.

Wearing sewn clothes.

Killing game (animals hunted as food) of the land. Allah the Most High said:

You who believe! Kill not game while in Ihram.

[Noble Quran 5:95]

Kissing and touching with sexual desire. Allah the Most High said:

Let there be no obscenity, nor wickedness, nor wrangling in the Hajj.

[Noble Quran 2:197]

To marry or propose for marriage. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

A man in the state of Ihram shall not be married or allowed to propose.

Sexual intercourse, because Allah the Most High said:

Let there be no obscenity, nor wickedness, nor wrangling in the Hajj.

[Noble Quran 2:197]

Concerning the first five prohibitions he who commits anyone of them, has to offer a Fidya and it means to fast for three days or to feed six indigents by giving each one of them a handful (about 1.25 kg) of wheat or to slaughter a goat. Allah the Most High says:

And if anyone of you is ill, or has an ailment in his scalp, (necessitating shaving), (he should) in compensation, either fast or feed (the poor), or offer sacrifice.

[Noble Quran 2:196]

As for the killing of land game, it has to be compensated in equivalent. Allah says:

If anyone of you kills intentionally, the compensation is an offering brought to the Ka`bah, of an animal equivalent to the one he killed. As adjudged by two just men among you or for expiation he should feed poor persons or its equivalent in fasting.

[Noble Quran 5:95]

For kissing during Ihram, the pilgrim has to slaughter a sheep or goat in compensation. Sexual intercourse invalidates Hajj but the pilgrim is advised to complete Hajj and to offer a Badanah (Camel) and perform Hajj the following year. If a Badanah is not available, he has to fast for ten days and perform Hajj next year. It was reported in Muwatta’ Imam Malik that ‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattab, Ali Ibn Abi Talib and Abu Hurairah were asked about a man who had sexual intercourse with his wife while he was performing Hajj? They said: “He has to complete his Hajj as well as having to perform Hajj the next year and offer a sacrifice in compensation. As for marriage, proposing for marriage and other sins such as backbiting and slandering, the atonement is repentance and asking Allah’s forgiveness.

Is Saying Jummah Mubarak Bidah?! Ruling on offering congratulations on Friday?


Source IslamQA 

What is the ruling on offering congratulations on Friday, because now it is the custom in our country on Friday to send text messages and people congratulate one another on the occasion of Friday by saying “Jumu‘ah mubaarak” or “Jumu‘ah tayyibah.”.

Praise be to Allaah.


There is no doubt that Friday is an “Eid” or “festival” for the Muslims, as it says in the hadeeth narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “This is a day of ‘Eid that Allah has ordained for the Muslims, so whoever comes to Jumu‘ah, let him do ghusl, and if he has any perfume let him put some on, and you should use the miswaak.” Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 1098; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah. 

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said, describing the special virtues of Friday: 

Thirteen: It is a day of ‘Eid that is repeated every week. 

Zaad al-Ma‘aad, 1/369 

Thus the Muslims have three Eids: Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, which come once every year, and Jumu‘ah which is repeated once every week. 


With regard to the Muslims congratulating one another on the occasions of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, this is prescribed and it is narrated from the Sahaabah (may Allah be pleased with them). This has been discussed previously in the answers to questions no. 49021 and 36442. As for congratulating one another on the occasion of Friday, what seems to us to be the case is that it is not prescribed, because the fact that Friday is an Eid was known to the Sahaabah (may Allah be pleased with them), and they were more knowledgeable than us about its virtues, and they were keen to respect it and give it its due, but there is no report to suggest that they used to congratulate one another on Fridays. And all goodness is in following them (may Allah be pleased with them). 

Shaykh Saalih ibn Fawzaan (may Allah preserve him) was asked: What is the ruling on sending text messages every Friday and ending with the phrase “Jumu‘ah mubaarak”? 

He replied: 

The early generation did not congratulate one another on Fridays, so we should not introduce anything that they did not do.

End quote from Ajwabat As’ilah Majallat al-Da‘wah al-Islamiyyah. 

A similar fatwa was issued by Shaykh Sulaymaan al-Maajid (may Allah preserve him), when he said: 

We do not think it is prescribed to exchange congratulations on Fridays, such as saying to one another, “Jumu‘ah mubaarak” and so on, because it comes under the heading of du‘aa’s and dhikrs, which must be based on a text (of the Qur’aan or Sunnah) because this is purely the matter of worship and if it were good, the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and his Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) would have done it before us. If anyone suggests that this is permissible, then that may imply that it is prescribed to say du‘aa’s and congratulate one another after having done the five daily prayers and other acts of worship, and du‘aa’ at these times was not done by the early generations.

End quote from the Shaykh’s website (may Allah preserve him) 

If a Muslim prays for his brother on Friday with the intention of softening his heart and making him happy, and seeking the time when supplications are answered, there is nothing wrong with that. 

And Allah knows best.

Friday is the Best day of Week
