Teachings about Jesus in the Quran and Hadiths

Witnessing to Muslims
https://youtu.be/bwO8b1eBX-8 Why is it important to know what the Quran teaches about Jesus? There is a tremendous amount of material in its teaching about Jesus that could assist Christians to witness effectively to Muslims. The only two negative aspects of this teaching are the two denials of his deity and resurrection. The rest is all positive and much vital Biblical teaching about Jesus is repeated in the quran. The virgin-birth, sinlessness, ascension and second coming of Jesus are all mentioned in the book and are basic Islamic doctrines There are other teachings which, together with a series of very meaningful titles given to Jesus, make the final image of the man far superior to the dogma that he was nothing more than a prophet. Even a cursory analysis of the…

Does the Quran really teach that Allah is One?

God
Does the Quran teach Unitarian Monotheism or Tawhid? https://youtu.be/ad2WcdT0Mho?list=PLHjaRUn9mlITsCytPI2M4mdRYNQr3TrlI Hello everyone. Thank you so much as always for joining us and I'm here with my dear brother Sam Shamoun to announce to you the release of a brand new video series. It's gonna be part of a series that we titled “Let us reason” and this particular video series that you will be watching in the next few weeks from now called Tawheed dilemma and Sam, tell our viewers more about the reason why we chose this particular dilemma to discuss. Because Muslims like to boast that Islam teaches the purest monotheism out there. Perhaps the only other religion that's close to Islam in its expression of monotheism with the Judaism but even with that said they boast that Islam…

Quran teaches that Allah is the best of deceivers

God
https://youtu.be/h_EMG-t-D2s According to Ibn Kaffir, a tradition that goes back to Ibn Abbas concerning the meaning of surah 4:157 is the following. On the night of the Lord Jesus’ betrayal he was with his disciples. Now the traditions vary, some say they're 13 disciples, some say 17, some say 19, they vary. Jesus on the night of his betrayal told the disciples and asked the disciples which one of them would volunteer to look like him. Which one of them would volunteer to take his appearance, Jesus' appearance on himself, die in the place of Christ. Whoever is willing to accept this proposal to die in Jesus's place, Jesus supposedly said he would be given paradise. In other words the disciples were asked to look like Jesus, die in his…

Have the Torah and Injil been lost?

Bible
https://youtu.be/dUAxHoBjyHM There are those who ask: wasn't the torah and the injeel lost by the time that the Prophet of Islam Muhammad came (peace be upon him). Were they lost? We do not find anything affirming that in the Quran itself for in Surah 3:3 it clearly says that the gospel and the Torah was in the hands of the Christians and the Jews at the time of the proclamation of Muhammad (peace be upon him). It would not make sense to say in that verse “to confirm that which is between their hands”. What is there to confirm if it is lost already? That verse would not make sense.  Now Mohammed has said to the people who were there in his time that if they want to be able…

Has the Bible been Abrogated by the Quran?

Bible
https://youtu.be/doWH4N6jguo Some people have put forth the thought that the Bible has been superseded, that somehow the previous revelations of Allah have been canceled out, that they are “mansukh”, that means they have been abrogated but are they right? Is this what the Quran teaches? In Surah 16:101, it tells us that Allah is sovereign and will cancel out one sign, one ayah and replace it by another. Some have wanted to take that as a statement that it's not talking about one verse but it's talking about all the previous revelations but there is nothing in that text that says that it was a kitab. It doesn't say it's a kitab. It says it was an ayah, a sign.  Furthermore, there is a vast body of hadith that again…

What the Quran teaches about the love and justice of God

Salvation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qggiaoetAlI What does the Quran say about Allah’s love? Allah does not love those who exceed the limits. Allah does not love any ungrateful sinner. Allah does not love the unbelievers. Allah does not love the unjust. Allah does not love him who is proud, boastful. Allah does not love the extravagant. Allah does not love the treacherous. Allah does not love the mischief-makers. Allah does not love any arrogant boaster. The God of Islam only seems to love good Muslims. Allah has no love for rebellious sinners or unbelievers so would a God who doesn't love sinners enter into the world to die for sinners? Of course not. The God of the Quran wouldn't do that because he just doesn't care about people that much. This is the real…

Why is Isa called “Al-Masih” in the Quran?

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/2JnFK_3ASRg Only Jesus has the title Messiah in the Quran The full Quranic  name for Jesus is Al-Masihu Isa – “the Messiah Jesus” (cf. Surah 4.157, 4.171). In fact we even read that when the angels first appeared to Mary they said of the holy child they had been sent to announce: Ismuhul Masihu Isabnu Maryam – “his name shall be the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary” (Surah 3.45). Even before the conception of Jesus, therefore, the angels gave him the one title that is applied to him on no less than eleven occasions in the Quran, namely Al-Masih – “the Messiah”. The strange thing is that, whereas the Quran unflinchingly attributes to Jesus the one title claimed for him by the Christians and rejected by the Jews, it attempts…

What does the name “Isa” mean?

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/QYe2RlpnUco I understand that Jesus is called Isa Al-masih in the Quran. What is the meaning of Isa according to the Quran? The Quran does not tell us the meaning of the name Isa. How does the Bible describe this name? In the Bible the name is Isa, the same as Yeshua, which means God Saves. The Injil tells us that Mary will give birth to a son and she has to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.  Did Jesus teach that he will save his people from their sins? I thought it was the Apostle Paul who invented this teaching? Not at all. Jesus told his disciples that he came to earth to give his life as a ransom for many.…

Second coming of Jesus according to the Quran

Jesus in Islam
What does Islam teach about Isa coming back? https://youtu.be/2yFUkgt0Ww4 It must come as something of a surprise to Christians to hear that the return of Jesus to earth is as much a basic belief of the Muslims as it is ours. Once again the vast majority of the Muslims of the world hold to this belief. As with the ascension the Quran does not treat the subject at any length and, as with so much of its teaching about Jesus, it is somewhat ambiguous. The one passage invariably brought forth to justify the doctrine is this one: And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): Therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way. Surah 43.61 The…
