{The Messiah, son of Mariam is but
a messenger; messengers before
him have indeed passed away; and
his mother was a truthful woman}
(Al-Maeda: 75).
He is the Messiah Isa, son of Mary,
the last Children of Israel prophets.
His name is “Isa” the “Messiah”.
Also called son of Mary in relation
to his mother Mary daughter of
(Imran), because he was born
without a father. In Hebrew, his
name is “Joshua” meaning the
savior, and in the bible he is called
He is a servant and apostle of Allah
(swt) and his word, which he
communicated to the Virgin Mary,
the clean and chaste the one who
guarded her chastity {and she
accepted the truth of the words of
her Lord and His books, and she
was of, the obedient ones}(AT-
Tahrim: 12). Her father was
“Imran”, a great man and a
venerable scholar of “the children
of Israel” scholars, and his wife was
the mother of Mary.
Mary, her birth and the
Imran, father of Mary, was a great
man of the children of Israel. He
has gotten older along with a
barren wife who did not beget a
son to him. She prayed to Allah
that if He granted her a son, she
would devote this son to Allah’s
obedience and serve his sacred
house. Allah responded to her
prayer and bestowed upon her
Mary whom she called on Allah to
guard her and her chastity from
Satan’s temptations {So, when she
brought forth, she said: My Lord!
Surely I have brought it forth a
female– and Allah knew best what
she brought forth– and the male is
not like the female, and I have
named it Mariam, and I commend
her and her offspring into Thy
protection from the accursed
Shaitan.}(Al-E-Imran: 36).
Imran died and Mary was still a
child. She needed some one to take
care of her. When her mother
presented her to the temple’s
pastors, they differed in opinion
and then cast their lots. The draw
was on Zakariya who guaranteed
her and took up a sanctury to her
where no one enters to except him.
The story of Zakariya was similar to
Imran’s whose wife grew old and
was barren. So, he prayed to Allah
to grant her a son so that she can
resume the mission, whom he used
to communicate, and after he saw
the miracles as he entered on
Mary, and the emergence of
corruption among his people. So,
Allah (swt) responded to his
prayers and gave good news to
him of a boy called “Yahya” {O
Zakariya! surely We give you good
news of a boy whose name shall
be Yahya: We have not made
before anyone his equal.}(Maryam:
7). This astonished Zakariya
knowing that he is only an old man
whose wife is barren {He said: O
my Lord! when shall I have a son,
and my wife is barren, and I myself
have reached indeed the extreme
degree of old age?}(Maryam: 8)
Zakariya, this virtuous believer, has
directed Mary in a righteous
worship direction. But once as he
entered the Sanctuary on her, he
saw something that astonished
him. He found sustenance that he
did not bring to her. Therefore, this
sustenance must have come from
a certain source, as Mary indicated
{So her Lord accepted her with a
good acceptance and made her
grow up a good growing, and gave
her into the charge of Zakariya;
whenever Zakariya entered the
sanctuary to (see) her, he found
with her food. He said: O Mariam!
whence comes this to you? She
said: It is from Allah. Surely Allah
gives to whom He pleases without
measure. }(Al-E-Imran: 37).
Mary: the worship, the gospel of a
(newborn) child:
Mary was raised in the Sanctuary
where she kept on worshipping
until she grew up to the age of a
woman. There emerged on her the
signs of piety, chastity, and purity,
and angels gave her the good
news about her purity, sincerity,
and that she is being the lady of
the women of the world. The
angels urged Mary to devote
herself assiduously to worshipping,
kneeling, prostration and obedience
{And when the angels said: O
Mariam! surely Allah has chosen
you and purified you and chosen
you above the women of the
world. O Mariam! keep to
obedience to your Lord and humble
yourself, and bow down with those
who bow.}(Al-E-Imran: 42-43).
The angels gave Mary the good
news of a word. Not a word of
some letters, but a fully spirited
word that represents the will of
Allah (swt) in creation. The is by the
Divine Command “Be” that can turn
a word into a human being called
“Isa” the son of Mary (a.s). The
word messiah means the blessed or
the king just as interpreters of the
Holy Koran suggest: {When the
angels said: O Mariam, surely Allah
gives you good news with a Word
from Him (of one) whose name is
the '. Messiah, Isa son of Mariam}
( .Al-E-Imran: 45).
Mary has endowed herself as a
custodian to the temple, and she
worshiped Allah there in isolation.
Once, as she was as such, Gabriel
(a.s), the angel, came to her in the
form of a human, so as to feel at
ease with him. When she saw him
she thought that he is a human
who wants to harm her, and she is
chaste and pure {then We sent to
her Our spirit, and there appeared
to her a well-made man.}(Maryam:
17). She started to move away
fearing he may do harm to her
especially that she is in a place
where there is no savior or helper.
She said {She said: "I seek refuge
from thee to (Allah) Most Gracious:
(come not near) if thou dost fear
Allah."}(Maryam: 18). The angel
replied with calm and assurance
{He said: I am only a messenger of
your Lord: That I will give you a
pure boy.}(Maryam: 18)
Mary was astonished and surprised
with what Gabriel is saying when he
gave good news to her about the
boy since she is a virgin who has
not yet gotten married and who
had never gone astray. She is the
chaste virgin who has never
entered the realm of sins {He said:
Even so; your Lord says: It is easy
to Me: and that We may make him
a sign to men and a mercy from
Us, and it is a matter which has
been decreed.}(Maryam: 21)
Mary conceived soon after Gabriel
breathed into her. After this,
imaginations started to hover in
her mind about what people might
say about this. She became
confused and decided to seek
isolation away from people {So she
conceived him; then withdrew
herself with him to a remote place.}
(Maryam: 22)
{And the throes (of childbirth)
compelled her to betake herself to
the trunk of a palm tree.} She
found out that this a tough
situation that she cannot put up
with. She raised a call for help after
she felt fear, especially that people
do not realize the meaning of
divine miracles. She thought that
her reputation in her society will be
threatened and so will her dignity
and position {She said: Oh, would
that I had died before this, and had
been a thing quite forgotten!}.
Gabriel came down to calm her
down and assure to her that only
Allah (swt) is the guarantor to her
and her sustenance. He signaled to
her to shake the trunk of the palm
tree, which had no fruits on, so that
ripe dates would fall down on her,
then she would eat with good
appetite and drink from a creek
that was streaming underneath her
{Then (the child) called out to her
from beneath her: Grieve not,
surely your Lord has made a
stream to flow beneath you; And
shake towards you the trunk of the
palm tree, it will drop on you fresh
ripe dates: So eat and drink and
refresh the eye. Then if you see
any mortal, say: Surely I have
vowed a fast to the Beneficent
Allah, so I shall not speak to any
man today. }(Maryam: 24-26)
Then Virgin Mary came out of her
isolation after delivery. Her
emergence with the newborn was
a surprise to all those who know
her piety and worship. They
accused her, but she held fast to
Gabriel’s instructions and kept silent.
And She pointed at her newborn
child to talk to them, but their
anger was heightened. But Isa (a.s.)
reined in their anger and talked to
them about his mother. He
absolved her from the charges
they imputed on her saying:
{Surely I am a servant of Allah; He
has given me the Book and made
me a prophet; And He has made
me blessed wherever I may be,
and He has enjoined on me prayer
and poor-rate so long as I live; And
dutiful to my mother, and He has
not made me insolent, unblessed;
And peace on me on the day I was
born, and on the day I die, and on
the day I am raised to life.}
(Maryam: 30-33)
In this way, Isa (a.s.) introduced
himself to the people who denied
his mother’s state. Despite that,
there have been differences about
the story of his birth {Such is Isa,
son of Marium; (this is) the saying
of truth about which they dispute.}
some people claimed that he was
the son of Allah or that Allah has
taken him as a son in spite of the
fact that Allah is Self-sufficient, and
does not need any one {It beseems
not Allah that He should take to
Himself a son!} (Maryam: 35).
Isa (a.s.) confronted this opinion
and called on people to worship
Allah and asserted servitude to Him
{And surely Allah is my Lord and
your Lord, therefore serve Him;}.
So submit to Him and answer His
commands and keep away from
His forbidding in all aspects of life in
order to lay the foundations of the
right and to walk on the straight
path {this is the right path.}
(Maryam: 36).
The disciples also had doubts about
Isa; they also had great differences
about, who was crucified . Was he
Isa the Messiah or Yahuza (the
Askhriot)? Because when Yahuza
guided them to Isa’s place, he
asked the Jews to enter ahead of
them and there was no one in that
place except Isa (a.s). And when
Allah threw resemblance (to Isa)
upon him and raised Isa to the
heavens, the Jews entered and
found only one person (Yahuza),
whom Allah cast resemblance to
Isa upon . They said: this is Isa, but
where is our friend? And if he were
our friend, then where is Isa? So,
they took him to be crucified while
he was shouting I am Yahuza, I am
not Isa. But they were laughing at
him while saying “you are lying,
you are Jesus (Isa)”. So, they
crucified him while being in the
midst of doubt, confusion, and
The Holy Koran responded to the
Jews, just as it did to the Christians,
and indicated the right faith, which
Muslims embrace, that is the sound
judgment in the issue of crucifixion
and ransoming {And their saying:
Surely we have killed the Messiah,
Isa son of Mariam, the messenger
of Allah; and they did not kill him
nor did they crucify him, but it
appeared to them so (like Isa) and
most surely those who differ
therein are only in a doubt about it;
they have no knowledge
respecting it, but only follow a
conjecture, and they killed him not
for sure. Nay! Allah took him up to
Himself; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.}
(AN-Nisa: 157-158).
What is odd about the Christians is
that they hold the view that Isa
(a.s) was crucified even though
they believe in his divinity, in that
he is a son of God!
Sacrificing for humanity:
They say that the messiah (Isa)
was crucified to save the children of
Adam from their sins and
What is odd in this is that the
People of the Book had disputes
about Jesus that went in both
excessiveness and remissness. So
the Jews claimed the he was an
illegitimate son because a son has
to have a father and Jesus had no
father so he is an illegitimate son.
On the other hand, the Christians
claimed that he is son of God,
because he was created from the
soul of God, and the soul of God is
part of God, therefore he has to be
a son of God. Both are wrong and
aberrant. And the truth is what the
Holy Koran had stated that he is an
apostle sent by Allah to the children
of Israel with right guidance
evidences, and that his mother is
the chaste, the veracious, the pure,
and the virgin who guarded her
chastity and was obedient .
