The primary source
of religious knowledge in Islam is the Holy Qur’ān. It claims that the
Prophet Jesus (sws) was the true messenger of God. It cleanses the
personality of Jesus Christ (sws) from the falsifications ascribed to him.
And the Christians say:
The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths.
They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. God destroy them.
How perverse are they! (9:30)
The Holy Qur’ān
acknowledges prophet hood of Jesus Christ (sws) and declares him to be the
true servant of the Almighty who never claimed these divine attributes. It
is only because of misinterpretation of the relevant verses of Bible or
misunderstanding on the part of the Christians in some cases and perhaps
deliberate tempering in some other that the belief of salvation and his
divinity was incorporated in the Christian faith.
