Some how though they think a man will give birth to ALLAH though. Some men even check their stool for babies just in case.
Uhmmm I wonder where exactly did they hear this. Saying that Allah will be re-born is about the worst blasphemy you can say about God (and will
probably get you in a LOT of trouble)
God was never born in the first place, so he can't be reborn. God simply is, he is eternal, no begining, no end and certainly no re-birth.
While christians believe that Jesus IS God (is not really, but somehow it is as a part of trinity), muslims have a very clear distinction between men
God simply cannot be "born", this goes against the very foundation of islamic belief and it is the fist time that I've actually heard of such
I wonder where these people heard it....
"Jesus — The Koran denies point blank that Jesus was the Son of God (Sura 112:2-3).It also denies His atoning sacrifice by claiming that he
never died (Sura 4:157). A substitute died for Him on the Cross. Jesus was translated to Heaven, like Enoch, where He will remain until He returns to
kill all pigs, destroy all crosses, and convert the world to Islam. Jesus will marry, reign for 40 years and then die and be buried next to Muhammad
in Medina.8 Jesus is characterized in the Koran as nothing more than “an apostle of Allah” (Sura 4:171). "
Qur'an denies the term "Son of God", because that would mean that God lowered himself to level of humans, which according to Islam is not
Muslims DO believe in miracle birth of Jesus, virgin Mary and all that. Only they refer to Jesus as God's creation
. God is the creator, he
creates, so what he creates is his creation. Quite simple. And of course, they call him a prophet of God too, as are all those called who were chosen
to spread the message of God.
So, Jesus walked the earth, did miracles, some plotted to kill him, but as it says in Quran, "god plotted better", he raised Jesus to heaven kinda
secretly, and everyone believed he was actually killed.
Jesus will return near the End of Days as I said, do some fighting and establish monotheism as only religion on Earth. That with marriage and children
is simply a legend, a prophecy, and it is not in Qur'an.
As I have stated, muslims do not see different religions and different gods, when it comes to other prophets before Mohammad. It is all one, it is all
a continuation of one Revelation, of belief in one single God. It is the same God who created humans, did some smiting of Sodom and Gomorah, saved
Noah, talked with Moses, led Jews to promise land, created Jesus and sent Qur'an to Muhammad. It is all one.
