Muslim Don’t Believe in Jesus
Muslims don’t believe in Jesus
The fact that Muslims do not believe Jesus (a.s.) is God does not mean that Muslims are non-believers in Jesus (a.s.). In all the reported accounts of Jesus (a.s.) that exist, Prophet Jesus (a.s.) asserts the same title concerning himself that God gave to the Prophet Ezekiel (a.s.), that he is the Son of Man. The Son of Man is a title that represents every human-being because we are all born of Mankind. The Son of Man (any single one of us or plurality of us) is not begotten of God, therefore God Himself. Prophet Jesus (a.s.) never is reported to have asserted that he is begotten of God as if God produced offspring, nor is in any way God Himself in the flesh. The Qur’an confirms this.
Assigning or to ascribe partners to God is shirk, blasphemy of the Spirit of God! God’s Spirit is His Nature or Being, i.e. Existence as One God without plurality. A God who has no others besides Himself (the core teaching of monotheism), is Unique among all created things and not begotten nor can beget. Blasphemy of God’s Spirit, or His Nature (or Existence) as a God with no partners, is strictly forbidden in the Scriptures and in the Qur’an alike! It is a sin against the God’s very core existence. God, the One Unique God, is God that has the power to bring order among chaos and confusion, the proof being all of creation itself. A god who gives offspring to many other lesser gods, like mankind gives offspring to many other members of mankind, has no power among the chaos and confusion of its equals, as seen in mankind itself which accepts the differences of its equals. In fact, this type of blasphemy, blasphemy of God’s Spirit which is a Spirit of Oneness, is an unforgivable sin. In the Jewish Scriptures (the Older Testament, the Torah section), Deuteronomy 5:7-9 says:
Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me…
In the Christian Scriptures (the Newer Testament), Prophet Jesus (a.s.) is reported to have said in Matthew 12:31-32:
Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come…
The Qur’an confirms that what Prophet Jesus (a.s.) is reported to have said is true. “Verily! Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners (in worship) with Him, but He forgives whom He wills sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, has indeed strayed far away,” Qur’an 4:116. Of course the person in question must be given the chance to repent of this sin first by being made aware of what shirk, or blasphemy of God’s Spirit, is before God holds them accountable.
