Christianity is not short in being blasphemous, the Glorious Qur’an has honored Prophet Jesus by describing that he was born miraculously to his mum Mary without any human touch not was she an ill-reputed lady.
Muslims believe that Jesus (called ‘Isa in Arabic) was the son of Mary, and was conceived without the intervention of a human father. The Qur’an describes that an angel appeared to Mary, to announce to her the “gift of a holy son” Qura’n (19:19).
She 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?” Quran (19:20). When the angel explained to her that she had been chosen for the service of God and that God had ordained the matter, she devoutly submitted herself to His will.
“The Chapter of Mary”
In the Qur’an and other Islamic sources, there is no mention of Joseph the carpenter, nor any recollection of the inn and manger legend. On the contrary, the Qur’an describes that Mary retreated from her people (outside the city), and gave birth to Jesus underneath a remote date palm tree.
The tree miraculously provided nourishment for her during labor and birth. (See Chapter 19 of the Qur’an for the entire story. The chapter has aptly been named “The Chapter of Mary.”)
However, the Qur’an repeatedly reminds us that Adam, the first human being, was born with neither a human mother nor a human father. Therefore, Jesus’ 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, Jesus is regarded as a human prophet and messenger of God, not part of God Himself.
God and Human are entirely different,
20 But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.” Exodus 33:20
14 to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen. 1 Timothy 6:14–16
12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
After the above we see the Absurdity in this Christian story telling us the following.
And we are quoting from a Christian website and will provide the reference at the end of this article:
Joseph Provided The Seed Starting Jesus’ Physical Body
The male seed used to fertilize the egg in young virgin Mary, was lifted from the body of her fiancé, Joseph, and implanted into the waiting egg in her womb, making Jesus’ physical body 100% human.
The Bible is ambiguous as to WHO exactly provided the male seed that fertilized Mary’s egg and started the physical body of Jesus.
Orthodoxy teaches that it was provided by either: 1. The Holy Spirit or 2. God The Father
Fortunately, Jesus made it perfectly clear who His physical Father was, verses who the Father of His spirit was.
First, He knocks Orthodoxy out of the ring, with one punch: Flesh gives birth to flesh, and Spirit gives birth to Spirit. John 3:6
It is IMPOSSIBLE for The Holy Spirit or God The Father to have provided a physical human seed, since they are spirits, and not the required flesh.
First I will speculate on what I believe happened, and then the evidence for my speculation.
The Holy Spirit came and lifted a fresh, live seed, from out of Joseph’s physical body, and implanted it directly into the waiting, fertile egg in Mary. Now the body of Jesus is 100% HUMAN, just like you and me.
You see, if Jesus’ father would have been God, then I would have very little in common with Jesus. “Hey, no wonder you lived that supercharged life – YOUR DADDY WAS GOD”!!!
Jesus was a plain man, just like us, so He could show us the potential within us. The potential that He demonstrated during His life, and after His resurrection from the dead, is the exact same as we have. We are His children. He specifically wants us aware that immorality in human flesh is the norm that should be sought after with all your heart, because He knows it is possible.
So how do we know that Jesus was the physical son of Joseph?
Because He LOOKED JUST LIKE HIS SIBLINGS!!!!! They all came from the same seed/egg pair.
Mat 13:54 Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked. 55 “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?” 57 And they took offense at him.
But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home.”
58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith

May Allah guide us all and Christians to worship Allah Exalted He alone and accept the beauty of Islam.
