Jesus according to the Qur'an

Saaid Fuad December 25, 2011
The Islamic view of Jesus lies between two extremes. The Jews , who rejected Jesus as a Prophet of God, called him an impostor. The Christians, on the other hand, considered him to be the son of God and worship him as such. Islam considers Jesus to be one of the great prophets of God and respects him as much as Ibrahim (Abraham), Moses, and Muhammad (peace be upon them). This is conformity with the Islamic view of the oneness of God, the oneness of Divine guidance, and the complementary role of the subsequent mission of God's messengers.
The essence of Islam - willing submission to the will of God - was revealed to Adam, who was passed it on to his children. All following revelations to Noah, Ibrahim, Moses, Jesus, and finally Muhammad, were conformity with that message, with some elaboration to define the revelation between man and God, man and man, man and instructions. Thus, any contradictions among revealed religions is viewed by Islam as a man-made element introduced into these religions. The position of Jesus in the three major religions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - should not be an exception.
Although the Qur'an does not present a detailed life-story of Jesus, it highlights the important aspects of his birth, his mission, his ascension to heaven, and passes judgements on the Christian beliefs concerning him. The Qur'anic account of Jesus starts with the conception of his mother, Mary, whose mother, the wife of Imran, vowed to dedicate her child to the service of God in the temple. When Mary became a woman, the Holy Spirit (the Archangel Gabriel) appeared to her as a man bringing her news of a son. We read the following dialogue in the Qur'an between Mary and the Angel:
When the angel said, "Mary, God gives you a good tidings of a Word from Him whose name is messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, -high honoured shall he be in this world and the next, near stationed to God. He shall speak to men in the cradle, and of age, and righteous he shall be, "lord" said Mary
"How shall I have a son, seeing no mortal has touched me? "Even so, he said "God creates what He will.
When he decrees a thing He but say to it, "Be", and it is. (Surah Al Imran, 3:45-47)
The church of nativity in Bethlehem, Palestine, considered sacred by Muslims and Christians as it is Jesus's place of birth
In a chapter (Surah) entitled "Maryam" (Mary), the Qur'an tells us how Mary gave birth to her son, and how the Jesus accused her when she brought the child home:
Then she brought the child to her folk, carrying him, and they said, "Mary, you have surely committed a monstrous thing. Sister of Aaron, your father was not a wicked man, nor your mother a woman unchaste. Mary pointed to the child; but they said, 'Hoe shall we speak to one who still in the cradle, a little child. And he said, 'Lo, I am God's servant, God has given me the Book and made me a Prophet Blessed He has made me ,wherever/may be; and hi has enjoined me to prayer, and to give the alms so long as I live, and likewise to cherish my mother; He has not made me arrogant and wicked. Peace be upon me, the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I am raised up a live. (Surah Maryam 19:29-33)
in the same chapter, following the above quotation, God assures Prophet Muhammad and through him the whole world, that what is told above is the truth about Jesus, although Christians might not accept it. Jesus is not the son of God: he was obviously enough, the son of Mary.
The verses continue:
That is Jesus, son of Mary, in word of truth, concerning which they are doubting. It is not for God to take a son unto Him. Glory be to Him, He nut says to it, 'Be', and it is. (Maryam 19:34-35)
After this strong statement about the nature of Jesus, God directed the Prophet to call the Christians to worship the one God:
Surely God is my God, and your God, so surely serve him. This is the straight path. (Maryam 19:36)
The rejection of the very idea of God having a son is restated later in the same chapter with even stronger words:
And they say, The All-merciful has taken unto Himself a son. You have indeed advanced something hideous. As if the skies are about to burst, the earth to split asunder and its mountain to fall down in the utter ruin for that they have attributed to the All-merciful a son; and behaves not the All-merciful to take a son. None there in the heavens and earth but comes to the All-merciful as a servant (Maryam 19:88-93)
The Qur'an recognizes the fact that Jesus had no human father, but this does not make him the son of God, or God himself. By this criterion, Adam would have been more entitled more entitled to be the son of God, because he had neither a father nor a mother, so the Qur'an draws attention to the miraculous creation of both in the following verses:
...Truly the likeness of Jesus, in God's sight is as Adam's likeness; He created him of dust, then He said upon him, 'Be' and he was. (Al-Imran 3:59)
The Qur'an rejects the concept of Trinity God the Father, God the son, God the Holy Spirit - as strongly as it rejects the concept of Jesus as the son of God. This is because God is One. Three cannot be one. The Qur'an addresses Christians in the following verses from the Surah entitled "An-Nisa" (The Women):
O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.
Never would the Messiah disdain to be a servant of Allah , nor would the angels near [to Him]. And whoever disdains His worship and is arrogant - He will gather them to Himself all together.
And as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, He will give them in full their rewards and grant them extra from His bounty. But as for those who disdained and were arrogant, He will punish them with a painful punishment, and they will not find for themselves besides Allah any protector or helper. (An-Nisa, 4:171-173)
The denial of Jesus's divinity (and, for that matter, of Mary's divinity) is presented in the Qur'an in the form of a dialogue, at the Day of Judgement, between the Almighty Jesus. All the Messengers and their nations will gather before God and He will ask the Messengers how they were received by their people and what they said to them. Among those who will be questioned is Jesus:
And when God said, "O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say unto men, 'Take me and my mother as gods, apart from God'? He said, "To you be glory! It is not mine to say what I have no right to. If I indeed said it, you would have known it, knowing what is within my heart, though I do not know your knowledge; you know the things unseen. I only said to them what you did command me: 'Serve God, my God and your God'." (Al-Maidah, 5-116)
Jesus's mission
Given that the Qur'an denies the Trinity and the son ship of Jesus, what, according to the Qur'an, was the real mission of Jesus?
The answer is that Jesus was a link in a long chain of Prophets and Messengers sent by God to various nations and societies whenever they needed guidance or deviated from his teachings of Moses and other Messengers. As he was miraculously supported by numerous miracles to prove that he was a Messengers from God. However, the majority of the Jews rejected his ministry.
In another verse of the Qur'an, Jesus confirmed the validity of the Torah which was revealed to Moses, and also conveyed he glad tidings of a final Messenger who follow him:
And when Jesus son of Mary said, 'Children of Israel, I am indeed the Messenger to you, confirming the Torah that is before me, and giving good tiding of a Messenger who shall be the praised one'. (As-Saff 61:6)
Note that "praised one" is a translation of "Ahmad" - The prophet Muhammad's name. Careful study of the New Testament shows that Jesus refers to the same Prophet in John 14:16-17: "And I will give you another Counsellor (Muhammad). To be with you for ever, even the Spirit of Truth."
The usual explanation of this Prophecy is that the counsellor referred to is the Holy Spirit, but this explanation is excluded by a previous verse in John: "Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counsellor will not come to you."
The characteristics of this counsellor, as can be derived from the prophecy, are that he will stay forever with the believers, he will glorify Jesus; and he will speak that he hears form God.
All four characteristics apply to Prophet Muhammad. He came six centuries after Jesus. He came six centuries after Jesus. He came with a universal and everlasting message, fulfilling the prophecy that the counsellor will stay forever with the faithful. He glorified Jesus as a great Prophet. The Qur'an attributes to Jesus miracles not mentioned in the Bible's Old and New Testaments, as well as specific verses in the Qur'an show how the Prophet Mohammad is rejected by Jews and Christians out of prejudice and misunderstanding, rather that carefully study the Bible.
It is a sad fact of history that not many are following the "straight path" to which people were called by Jesus. He was only followed by a few disciples inspired by God to support him. The non-believers plotted - as they would against Muhammad, six centuries later - to kill Jesus. But God had better plan for him and his followers, as the Qur'an tells us:
And when Jesus perceived their unbelief, he said 'Who will be my helpers in the cause of God?' The apostles said, 'We are God's helpers. We believe in God; so bear witness of our submission God, we believe in that you have sent down, and we follow the Messenger. Inscribe us therefore with those who bear witness.' And they devised, and God devised, and God devised, and God is the best of divisors. When God said, 'Jesus, I will take you to Me and will raise you to Me, and I will purify you (of the falsehoods) of those who do not believe. I will make your followers above the unbelievers till the Resurrection Day.' (Al-Imran 3:52-55)
As the above verses indicate, Jesus was taken and raised to heaven. He was not crucified. It was certainly the plan of the enemies of Jesus to put him to death on the cross, but God saved him and someone else was crucified:
And for their unbelief, and their uttering against Mary a grave false charge, and for their saying, 'We killed the messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the Messiah of God'…yet they did not slay him, neither crucified him, only a likeness of that was shown to them. Those who are at variance concerning him are surely in doubt the following of conjecture; and they did not kill him of certainty…no indeed; God raised him up to Him; God is Almighty, Allwise. There is not one of the people of the book but will assuredly believe him before his death, and on the Resurrection Day he will be a witness against them. (An-Nisa 4:156-159)
The Qur'an does not explain who was the person crucified instead of Jesus, nor elaborate on the Second Coming of Jesus.
However, explanators of the Qur'an have always interpreted the last verse of the above quotation to mean that Jesus will believe in him before he dies. This understanding is supported by authentic sayings (Hadith) of Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah him and upon all His Messengers.

Sejarah Patani ( animation )

Ramai orang melayu tidak tahu sejarah kejatuhan empayar dan kerajaan melayu disekitar segenting kera satu persatu sejak dua ratus lima puluh tahun lalu.Kerajaan-kerajaan melayu dahulu yang di kenali dengan nama Ligor, Rundung,Terang,Cahaya, Gherbi, Bukit Ujung Salang, Bendelung dan Singgora sekarang telah berubah menjadi Nakhorn Sri Thamarat, Ranong, Chaya, Trang, Krabi, Phuket, Patthalung dan Songkhla. Kesemuanya hanya berlaku dalam masa 250 tahun. Begitu juga Patani mula jatuh pada tahun 1786 .Tapi masih tidak berhenti berjuang hingga sekarang.Peperangan sekarang bukanlah yang terhebat pernah berlaku pada bumi Patani. Pada tahun 1831-32 penjajah Siam mengerah 300,000 tentera untuk berperang dengan Patani. Kerajaan British membantu dengan menyekat jalan laut Kedah-Trang, kerana Patani dibantu oleh Kedah Kelantan dan Trengganu untukmenyerang ikut jalan laut. Penjajah British telah bersengkongkol dengan Siam membahagi-bahagikan bumi Patani pada tahun 1902 - 1909 dalam perjanjian Anglo-Bangkok treaty. Orang-orang melayu diluar masih tidak peka dengan apa yang berlaku di Patani. Dan kalau ada yang tahu pun menganggap bahawa masalaah Patani tak ada kena mengena dengan mereka. Memang dhaif sungguh nasib bangsa melayu yang berada di Patani atau luar Patani. Peperangan dengan orang-orang siam sudah berlanjutan sejak zaman Langkasuka yaitu zaman Patani sebelum islam lagi. Sudah lebih enam ratus tahun berjuang dan tidak akan jemu berjuang selagi bumi Patani masih dijajah.
