Is my understanding correct?
I understand that Muslims do believe in the books of the old testament + the 1st 5 books of the new testament. I understand, also, that Muslims do not believe Jesus is the actual Son of God.
If I am not correct with my understanding of Islam belief, please do correct me.
If my understanding is correct, please help me understand how can a Muslim say that Jesus is not the Son of God when, for example,
in Matthew 3:17 it says: And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." This was said by God after Jesus was baptized.
This is only 1 example of many that states direcly in our bible that Jesus is Son of God.
Please help me understand what is understood in Islam, and why. I really need to understand.
With sincere gratitude,
There are now more than 60 versions of the Bible(Different versions not translations The different versions of the Bible are not merely different translations, but are actually versions i.e. they add and remove things from other versions)
These revisions serve as concrete proofs that all the Biblical books are not at all divinely inspired. This is because it is beyond man's ability to correct the work of his Creator, who alone is Almighty and perfect
The Bible is a collection of writings by many different authors. The Qur'an is a dictation. The speaker in the Qur'an - in the first person - is God talking directly to man. In the Bible you have many men writing about God and you have in some places the word of God speaking to men and still in other places you have some men simply writing about history.
The previous scriptures were meant for a limited period (and a specific people) that ended with the revelation of what abrogated them and exposed what had taken place in them of distortion and change. That is why they were not protected from corruption
Muslims believe in the books of the previous prophets including the "Torah" which was sent to Moses, the "Zaboor" (Psalms) which were given to David, the "Injeel" (Gospel) which was given to Jesus, and the Qur'an which was given to Muhammad However, Muslims are told that the previous scriptures were tampered with by mankind and the Bible should only be accepted in as far as it is confirmed by the Qur'an. It is to be treated with respect, however any statements which clearly oppose those of the Qur'an are to be rejected as the work of mankind.
God is One. There is no Trinity. Jesus is a prophet of God, and like all his fellow prophets, he is a human being. We love him, and believe in him, and affirm all of his miracles, bestowed upon him as a favour from his Lord. He called for the worship of God alone and for righteousness - as every prophet of God has done. However, his pure monotheistic message was gradually changed by 'Christians' into a polytheistic one, by transforming Jesus(the servant of God, into a mythological God-incarnate figure to be worshipped alongside God All-Mighty.
Jesus was in a mother's womb. He needed nutrition; he was born and grew up to be a man.A man who needs to eat, walk, sleep, rest, etc.. cannot have Divine Attributes because he is in need and God is Self-Sufficient
The term "Son of God" was used metaphorically speaking to those who were godly and pious men. It was never meant to be used literally as the case with Christianity toward Jesus
The Muslim perspective is this: God does not beget sons or daughters as begetting is an animal act reserved for the lower animal functions of sex. Metaphorically, we can all be described as the sons of God as God has created us and He provides for us, but physically He does not beget.
We should first answer this question What is the true word of God about Jesus ? u can find that only in Qur'an the final revelation the only authentic revealed book in the world that has been kept without change
Muslims believe that Jesus was born immaculately, and through the same power which had brought Eve to life and Adam into being without a father or a mother
Truly the likeness of Jesus, in God's sight, is as Adam's likeness; He created him of dust, then said He unto him, "Be", and he was. (Qur'an 3:59).
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 knew it, knowing what is within my soul, and I do not know what is within Your soul; You know the things unseen. I only said to them what You did command me: "Serve God, my Lord and your Lord." And I was a witness over them, while I remained among them; but when You did take me to Yourself the Watcher over them; You are the witness of everything. (Quran 5:116,117)
Jesus' giving life to the dead, healing the blind and the lepers All accepted. They were performed through the will of God
Trinity, the divinity of Jesus, the divine son ship of Jesus, and the doctrines of Original Sin and Atonement. All of these were made by men. Jesus prophesied that people would worship him uselessly and believe in doctrines made by men: "But in vain they do worship me teaching for doctrines the commandments of men" (Matthew 15:9).
'Sue' Watson - Former pastor, missionary, professor. Master's degree in Divinity who has Embraced Islam said ; It is interesting to note that there were bishops during the first three hundred years of the Church that were teaching as the Muslim believes that Jesus (pbuh) was a prophet and teacher!! It was only after the conversion of Emperor Constantine that he was the one to call and introduce the doctrine of the Trinity. He a convert to Christianity who knew nothing of this religion introduced a paganistic concept that goes back to Babylonian times
If you really examine the Christian teaching on human sin with an open mind, you will see that they say that God sacrificed His only son to atone for the sins of mankind, and that this son was a god. If it was true that he was a god who was beaten, insulted and crucified, and died, then this doctrine contains elements of blasphemy because it accuses God of weakness and helplessness.

My friend had given me a pen drive. I remembered it while browsing net on Firefox. When I put that in my PC and double clicked, it didn't open. I knew at once: I had activated a virus. But I didn't have any idea about the kind of virus that might have come to my PC, until I switched back to Firefox. Normally, I deal with such viruses like this: I show all the hidden files and folders then manually and permanently delete the entries which bother me.. Take out the pendrive and then scan it agian!! But this time it didnt work! So now when I wanted to browse the net immediately a message box was displayed: I DNT HATE MOZILLA BUT USE IE OR ELSE... with title as USE INTERNET EXPLORER U DOPE. I just remembered the experiences of my friends. I tried to locate the virus by running the Task Manager. But there were no suspicious entries there. I had to bow the owner of the virus. I used Internet Explorer to search about it. The first entry in Google took me to the Mozilla Forum page, and after going through some pages, I came to know that the same virus also displayed another message when you opened Orkut.
Orkut is banned you fool, The administrators didnt write this program guess who did?? MUHAHAHA!! with title ORKUT IS BANNED.
Well, a similar message was displayed for YouTube also. So I went through all the posts, and finally found a solution on the web!!
- Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to the processes tab
- Look for svchost.exe under the image name. There will be many but look for the ones which have your username under the username. There will be many which have system, local service, and network service mentioned!
- Press DEL to kill these files. It will give you a warning, Press Yes
- Repeat for more svchost.exe files with your username and repeat.
- Now open My Computer
- In the address bar, type C:\heap41a and press enter. It is a hidden folder, and is not visible by default.
- Delete all the files here. Preferably se Shift + Delete
- Now go to Start --> Run and type Regedit
- Go to the menu Edit --> Find
- Type "heap41a" here and press enter. You will get something like this "[winlogon] C:\heap41a\svchost.exe C:\heap(some number)\std.txt"
- Select that and Press DEL. It will ask "Are you sure you want to delete this value?", click Yes
- Now close the registry editor.

So, the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in. Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After awhile, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.
One day, God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer, "So, how's it going down there in hell?"
Satan replies, "Hey, things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."
God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake -- he should never have gotten down there; send him up here."
Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him."
God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue."
Satan laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?"

I am writing this post at 11:27 pm today on the 9th Of July... The Omen was released on 6 June 2006.. ie 6/6/6 .. That day I remember was a special day and so is it every year! And I saw number 23 6 times!! Call me a movie bluff if you want!!
Three 6's ie 666 is the devils number (so it is believed) or the number of the beast.. Some interpret it as a title of the 'antichrist' (da'jaal). It is mentioned in the Qur'an and I assume you know about it!! Find out more about this number here!! It is important you go through this link once!
The other thing which I came to know in one of these films is about Mammon!! A satanic god! Actually believed by Christians to be the son of satan!! (They also have wrongly started to believe that Jesus is the son of Allah; when will they learn)
Now you might be asking where do i step in!! Well My name is Mamoon (for those who didnt know). I also have one of the rarest names!! There is Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, and one Afghani singer whom I know with the same name!! Now Mamoon resembles Mammon to a huge huge extent doesnt it?
The word Mammon has different versions in different languages with the same meaning in at least Finnish (mammona), Danish (mammon), Dutch ("mammon"), Hebrew (mamon), Norwegian (mammon) , Polish (mamona), Czech (mamon), Slovak (mamona), Swedish (mammon), German (Mammon) and Afrikaans (Mammon). They all mean the beast, the devil, the satan and what nots!!
And you know what the best thing is:: My birthdate falls on 6 June... 6 6.....!!! Yes sir!! The sixth day of June!! 6, 6!!! the devils number!! partly though!! But isnt that a good enough coincedence!! And yes my name is still Mamoon!!
So either I am the beast, or I am the satan or just something like that!! So just call me at 666-666... six times!!
While I am writing this post its 12 O clock already into the night!.. I have kept the lights on in my room!! No other light from any other house!! Many things are attracted to lights!! Whao!! Hold on. I just saw something move outside my window... Ooops!This huge insect had taken an oath to terrify me!! Banging against my window 666 times, with that eerie sound of wings fluttering!! I think I wont be able to sleep tonight!!
