Hi there ,
I'm a new member and I hope I'm welcomed, I'm very shocked and upset by what is ascribed to Jesus (Eesa) peace be upon him.
he was a man of peace a prophet born of the virgin pious lady Maryam(Mary) who had the glad tidings of the miraculous baby by angel Jibreel(Gabriel)
and here is the reference from Qur'aan: "Relate in the Book (the story of) Maryam, when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.*
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.*
She said: "I seek refuge from thee to (Allah) Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear Allah."*
He said: "Nay, I am only a Messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son." [Maryam 19: 16-19]
Mary was shocked and said:" She said: How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?" [Maryam 19: 20]
the angel replied: "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." [Maryam 19: 21]
So he was born in a miraculous way but how did her family receive her and how it was explained to them: "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!* "O sister of Harun! thy father was not a man of
evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste! *But she pointed to the babe. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle? *He said: "I
am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet;*And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me
Prayer and Charity as long as I live:*(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable * "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)!" [Maryam 19: 27-33]
Then concluding this glorious description the Qur'an says: Such (was) 'Isa the son of Maryam: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they
* 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.
* (Jesus's own message)Verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord: Him therefore serve ye: this is a way that is straight. [Maryam 19: 34-36]
*Regarding his assumed death God tells us in the Qur'aan:
"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 * Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise * And there is none of the People of the
Book but must believe in him before his death(i.e. second coming); and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them" [al-nissaa
quite interestingly I was reading in this book about the Coptic Apocalypse of Peter and it talks about this subject; that Jesus was not crucified but
it was made to look like to people around him; for this you can refer to "Lost Christianities -The battles for scriptures and the faiths we never
knew" by Bart Ehrman -pages 186-188
finally I wish I never offended any one just sharing what I have with every one here.
