Is Jesus (PBUH) the Son of Allah?

In Islam, Jesus is regarded as a highly respected and significant prophet who delivered Allah’s Message to the Children of Israel. However, the concept of Jesus as the son of Allah is forbidden in Islam. The Quran explicitly denies the notion that Allah has offspring, and thus, Jesus is not considered Allah’s son according to Islam. 

Muslims believe in Tawhid, or belief in the Oneness of Allah. It is one of the fundamental beliefs of Islam, which the Quran emphasizes by stating:

“Say, ‘He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, The Self-Sufficient Master; He neither begets nor is born, and there is nothing like Him.’”

(Al-Ikhlas 112:1-4)

These ayahs clearly negate the idea of Allah having a son or offspring. Hence it is forbidden for Muslims to believe in Jesus as the son of Allah. 

Moreover, the Quran narrates about the birth of Jesus (may the peace of Allah be upon him), which was miraculous; he was born to Mary, without any male involvement (i.e., without a father). Allah Almighty says in the Quran:

“And [mention] when the angels said, ‘O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds. O Mary, be devoutly obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow with those who bow [in prayer].' That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. And you were not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for Mary. Nor were you with them when they disputed"

(Al-`Imran 3:42-44).

The Quran acknowledges Jesus' miraculous birth, which occurred by the Will of Allah, but never suggests that this makes him the son of Allah. 

Muslims believe that Jesus is a Messenger of Allah sent to preach the message of Islam, just like other prophets. He delivered the message of submission to Allah, emphasizing that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah. This article of faith constitutes the cornerstone of Islamic belief. Muslims see Jesus as a prophet but not the son of Allah.

  In conclusion, the concept of Jesus as the son of Allah (Exalted be He) is forbidden in Islam. Muslims believe in the absolute Oneness of Allah. The Quran clearly negates the idea of Allah having any offspring. Jesus is a highly respected and honorable prophet in Islam, who preached the message of submission to Allah. Muslims believe in Jesus as a Messenger of Allah who delivered the message of Islam, but not as the son of Allah.
