Muslim beliefs and traditions still remain a mystery to many non-Muslims. Between ignorance and outright malicious lies, Muslims need to find a common ground with others. Non-Muslims, especially Christians, are often surprised to discover that Muslims also believe in Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). This web page aims to not only provide the Islamic perspective on this great Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and Maryam (Mary), the mother of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), but also to bring forward the common ground between Muslims and Christians.

Muslims are required by Allah (SWT) to believe in all of the Prophets. These include Prophet Isa (Jesus Christ) and Prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) peace be upon them. The Noble Qur'an, the Islamic holy book, also instructs Muslims to believe in the books revealed to every Prophet as well. The book given to Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him) is called Injeel in the Noble Qur'an.

According to the Noble Qur'an, Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) was one of Allah's (SWT) most beloved messengers, a precursor to Prophet Muhammad (61:6) and was sent to guide the Children of Israel. In the Noble Qur'an, stories about the life and teachings of Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him) are abundant. The Noble Qur'an recalls his miraculous birth, his teachings, the miracles he performed by Allah's (SWT) permission, and his life as a great prophet of Allah (SWT). The Noble Qur'an speaks of Maryam (Mary) not only as the mother of Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him), but as a righteous woman in her own right.

Muslims believe that Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him) was the son of Maryam (Mary), and was immaculately conceived without the intervention of a human father. The Noble Qur'an describes that an angel appeared to Maryam (Mary), to announce to her the "gift of a holy son" (19:19). Maryam (Mary) was astonished at the news, and asked: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?" (19:20). When the angel explained to her that she had been chosen for the service of Allah (SWT), and that Allah (SWT) had ordained the matter, she devoutly submitted herself to His will.

The Noble Qur'an further describes that Maryam (Mary, mother of Jesus) retreated from her people (outside the city), and gave birth to Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him) underneath a remote date palm tree. The date palm tree miraculously provided nourishment for Maryam (Mary) during labor and birth. (See Chapter 19 of the Noble Qur'an for the entire story. The chapter has aptly been named "The Chapter of Maryam (Mary, mother of Jesus)")

However, the Noble Qur'an repeatedly reminds us that Prophet Adam, the first human being, was born with neither a human mother nor a human father. Therefore Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him) miraculous birth affords him no higher standing or presumed partnership with God. When God ordains a matter, He merely says, "Be" and it is so. "The similitude of Jesus before God is as that of Adam. He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be!" And he was" (3:59). In Islam, Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him) is regarded as a human prophet and messenger of God, not part of God Himself. The Noble Qur'an also denies that Prophet Isa (Jesus, peace upon him) was crucified.
