ISLAM

1. Do Muslims believe he was a Messenger of One God? YES

Belief in all of the Prophets and Messengers of God is a fundamental article of faith in Islam. Thus, believing in Prophets Adam, Jesus, Moses, and Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon them) is a requirement for anyone who calls him or herself a Muslim. A person claiming to be a Muslim who, for instance, denies the Messengership of Jesus, is not considered a Muslim.

The Quran says in reference to the status of Jesus as a Messenger:

"The Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary, was no more than a Messenger before whom many Messengers have passed away; and his mother adhered wholly to truthfulness, and they both ate food (as other mortals do). See how We make Our signs clear to them; and see where they are turning away!" (Quran 5:75).

2. Do Muslims believe he was born of a Virgin Mother? YES

Like Christians, Muslims believe Mary, Maria in Spanish, or Maryam as she is called in Arabic, was a chaste, virgin woman, who miraculously gave birth to Jesus.

"Relate in the Book the story of Mary, when she withdrew from her family, to a place in the East. She screened herself from them; then We sent to her Our spirit (angel Gabriel) and he appeared before her as a man in all respects. She said: I seek refuge from you in God Most Gracious (come not near) if you do fear God. He said: Nay, I am only a Messenger from your Lord, to announce to you the gift of a pure son. She said: How shall I have a son, when no man has ever touched me, and I am not unchaste? He said: So it will be, your Lord says: ‘That is easy for Me; and We wish to appoint him as a sign unto men and a Mercy from Us': It was a matter so decreed" (Quran 19:16-21).

3. Do Muslims believe Jesus had a miraculous birth? YES

The Quran says:

"She (Mary) said: ‘O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me.' He (God) said: ‘So (it will be) for God creates what He wills. When He has decreed something, He says to it only: ‘Be!'- and it is" (3:47).

It should also be noted about his birth that:

"Verily, the likeness of Jesus in God's Sight is the likeness of Adam. He (God) created him from dust, then (He) said to him: ‘Be!'-and he was" (Quran 3:59).

4. Do Muslims believe Jesus spoke in the cradle? YES

"Then she (Mary) pointed to him. They said: ‘How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?' He (Jesus) said: ‘Verily! I am a slave of God, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet; " (19:29-30).

    We had a Muslim woman living with us for a while from Turkey. She told us there are two types of Muslims and two different muslim bibles. One following Muhammad's grandson and (one his brother or Uncle?) ... Tho this isn't primarily a religious teaching sight... I suppose it can be used as such.

    Jesus didn't fake his own death....God lifted him...and made the Jewish and people crucify someone they thought he was Jesus...Because they were waiting for the Golden Age...Quran doesn't say "Jesus faked his own death" . Can you tell me the story of Moses...the one that you know first???? Many prophets were sent to lots of people and they didn't believe in them.(Even with miracles) ..........Regards,

    #4. rediculas #3 is a lie so is #2 and the Quran it self says that Jesus faked his own death. i know because i read it for myself. they even get the basic bible stories wrong. all you have to do is compare them to the bible. if Moses is Gods prophet then why don't they believe him.

    You are telling that you read it...and I don't want to tell you ...you are being dishonest....Look I'm a Muslim and believe when I say you understand wrong...That's why I don't write poetry anymore ,,, because now I'm aware that people didn't know much about Islam or they get it wrong.......Regards,
