How Do Muslims View Jesus?

Muslims love and respect Jesus. They consider him one of the greatest of God’s prophets and messengers ever sent to humankind. A Muslim never refers to him simply as “Jesus,” but always adds the phrase “may the peace and blessing of God be upon him,” or a similar phrase of respect and honor. The Quran confirms his virgin birth, and a special chapter of the Quran is entitled “Mary,” in remembrance and honor of his mother. The Quran describes the Annunciation as follows:

The angels said, “O Mary! God has chosen you, and purified you, and chosen you above the women of all nations…”

The angels said, “O Mary, God gives you good news of a word from Him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, honored in this world and in the Hereafter, and one of those brought near to God. He shall speak to the people in infancy and in old age, and shall be of the righteous.”

She said: “O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me?” He said: “Even so; God creates what he wills. When He decrees a thing, he says to it, ‘Be!’ and it is.” (Quran 3:42, 45-7)

Just as God created Adam without a mother or a father, He so caused Jesus to be conceived without a father:

Truly the example of Jesus in relation to God is as the example of Adam. He created him from dust and then said to him, “Be!” and he was. (Quran 3:59)

During his prophetic mission, Jesus performed many miracles. The Quran tells us that he said:

“I have come to you with a sign from your Lord: I make for you out of clay, as it was, a figure of a bird, and breathe into it and it becomes a bird by God’s leave. And I heal the blind, and the lepers, and I raise the dead by God’s leave.” (Quran 3:49)

Jesus, like Muhammad, came to confirm and renew the basic doctrine of the belief in One God brought by earlier prophets. In the Quran, Jesus is reported as saying that he came:

“To attest the Torah that was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden to you; I have come to you with a sign from your Lord; so be conscious of God and obey me.” (Quran 3:50)

The Prophet Muhammad said: “Whoever believes that there is no deity except God, alone without partner, that Muhammad is His messenger, that Jesus is the servant and messenger of God-His word which he bestowed on Mary and a spirit proceeding from Him-and that Paradise and Hell are true, shall be received by God into Heaven.”
