Jesus: A Prophet And A Servant Of Allah

Jesus: A Prophet and a Servant of Allah

In Matthew 19:16-17 – 

“And  behold,  one  came  and  said  unto  him,  ‘Good master,  what  good  thing  shall  I  do  that  I  may have eternal life?’ And he said unto him, ‘Why callest thou  me  good?  (There  is)  none  good  but  one, (i.e.) God,  but  if  thou  wilt  enter  into  life,  keep  the commandments.’ “

In the above verses we note this acknowledgment of his submissiveness (to Allaah’s Will).

In Matthew 21:45-46 – 

“And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parable, they perceived that he spoke of them. But when  they  sought  to  lay  hands  on  him,  they  feared the multitude because they took him for a Prophet.”

Here  it  is  proved  that  all  those  who  believed  in  Jesus during his life-time did not believe in him being God or the Son of God or one in the doctrine of Trinity; but they believed  in  him as being a Prophet only. This  is  indeed one of the strongest points of evidence against those who believe  in  the Divinity of  Jesus  (Incarnation  of God)  if

only they pondered.

Jesus: A Servant of Allaah

In Matthew 23:8 – 

‘But be not  ye  called Rabbi:  for one  is  your master, even Jesus, and all ye are brethren.”

Here  it  is  clearly  proved  that  Jesus  was  servant  of Allaah,  and  that  there  is  only  One  Master  and  He is Allaah.  In  the Arabic  version  of  the Bible  this  verse has  been  translated  so  that  Jesus  is  meant  to  be the master  whereas  the  English  rendering  is  nearer  the original sense.

In Matthew 23:9 – 

“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father which is in heaven.”

From  this  you will  note  that  fatherhood  and Sonship  is meant  to  be  the  relationship  between  the  Lord  and His servants:  it  is  meant  in  a  general  sense  and  not specifically for Jesus.

In Matthew 24:36 – 

“But of  that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

This is a definite proof that the Final Hour is unknown to any  but Allaah,  thus  Jesus’  knowledge  is imperfect  like all  other  men;  Allaah  Alone  is  All-Knowing, Omniscient.

In Matthew 26:39 – 

“And he  (Jesus) went  a  little  farther, and  fell on his face  and  prayed,  saying,  ‘O  my  Father,  if  it be possible,  let  this  cup  pass  from me:  nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.’ “

We  note  here  that  the  person  speaking  is  unaware  of Allaah’s Will and realizes the fact that he is a servant of Allaah. He (Allaah) Alone can cause the change.
