Who Is Jesus (PBUH)?

Jesus, also known as `Isa, is a highly respected and revered figure in Islam. He is considered to be one of the greatest prophets of Allah, alongside Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all). Muslims believe that Jesus was sent by Allah as a messenger to guide the children of Israel to the path of righteousness.

The Islamic view of Jesus’ life differs from that found in the New Testament. While both agree that Jesus was born of a virgin, Muslims believe that he was not crucified, but rather was rescued and raised bodily into the heavens by Allah. This belief is based on the Qur’an, which states that

“they killed him not, nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them”

(Surah An-Nisa’ 4:157).

Muslims also believe that Jesus performed numerous miracles during his life, through Allah’s Power. These miracles included healing the blind and lepers, raising the dead, and even creating life from clay. According to Islamic texts, Jesus accomplished these miraculous works in order to demonstrate Allah’s Power to the people. 

In addition to performing miracles, Jesus also taught extensively about the nature of Allah and the importance of living a virtuous life. He stressed the need to love and respect one another, and to treat each other with kindness and compassion. He also emphasized the importance of worshiping and following the commands of Allah, and of performing good deeds and avoiding evil. 

Overall, Jesus is highly regarded in Islam as an honorable Prophet and Messenger of Allah, who was sent to guide humanity towards the path of righteousness. His teachings and miracles continue to serve as an inspiration and guidance for Muslims today, who seek to live according to the principles of love, compassion, and righteousness that he espoused.
