Jesus Christ, Kalamullah, Contextual Clarification of Jesus as The Word Of Allah And A Rebuttal Of His Divinity

Allah says:

“(Remember) when the angels said: ‘O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allah gives you the glad tidings of a Word [“Be!” — and he was! i.e. ‘Eesa (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary)] from Him, his name will be the Messiah ‘Eesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), held in honour in this world and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to Allah.

He will speak to the people, in the cradle and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous.’ She said: ‘O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me.’ He said: ‘So (it will be) for Allah creates what He wills. When He has decreed something, He says to it only: “Be!” and it is’” [Aal ‘Imran 3:45-47]

The word of Allah here is His command when He intends something, He only say “Be and it is”.

Maryam said When talking with the angel that came to her: “How shall I have a son…?”

This shows that the Messiah, who is the Word, is the son of Maryam, not the son of Allah, may He be glorified and exalted.

Allah says in Qur’an 4:171-173:

 “…Glory is to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son” – declaring Himself to be far above having a son as the Christians say. “The Messiah will never be proud to reject to be a slave of Allah, nor the angels who are the near (to Allah)” i.e., they will never deny that they are slaves of Allah, may He be blessed and exalted. After such a clear statement, can anyone think that what is meant by “His Word” is that he is a god and creator, or whatever such statements of kufr they make?

Jesus alone is described as the Word because he was not created in the usual way in which others are created, rather he was created in an extraordinary way: he was created by the command of Allah: “Be!”

This is the Word in question; he was not created by means of a male fertilizing a female, as is the usual way in which Allah created human beings.

The fact that Jesus (peace be upon him) is a Word from Allah and a spirit created by Him, as is indicated in the texts of the clear Revelation, does not mean that he is part of Allah who emerged from Him and is connected to His essence: glorified and exalted be Allah far about what the wrongdoers say. Rather what it means is that he came from Allah

The phrase “a spirit created by Him (or from Him)” is used only of the Messiah because he was breathed into his mother by al-Rooh (Jibreel – peace be upon), and she became pregnant with him from that breath. This is something other than his rooh (soul) that he shares in common with the rest of mankind.

He is distinguished from them by the fact that his mother became pregnant with him from this breathing of the spirit, hence he is called a spirit from Him. See Daqaa’iq al-Tafseer, 1/324 ff.

Moreover, these verses clearly state that Allah created him, and that Allah creates whatever He will; nothing is beyond Him in the heavens or on earth and how can something created equal to the Creator? And Jesus himself (peace be upon him) said that the signs and miracles that he brought were from Allah and happened by His leave, a sign to them of His Oneness.

Allah commanded and Jesus became since his birth wasn’t through any male fluid and not what’s claimed by ignorant Christians.

The meaning of Jesus being the Word of God is that he came into existence by the Word of Allah “Be”, as was stated by the interpreters of the Quran among the Salaf (righteous predecessors). 

Imam Ahmad said, “It [i.e. the creation of Jesus] was with the word that Allah sent down to Mary (Maryam) when He said to him: (Be) and Jesus was (i.e. came to existence) with the word ‘Be’; Allah says (what means): {Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Aadam (Adam). He created Him from dust; then He said to him, ‘Be,’ and he was.}” [Quran 3:59]

The Spirit was the blowing which Jibreel, may Allah exalt his mention, blew to the garment of Maryam and she became pregnant by Allah’s Will. The blowing was called spirit because it is a wind that comes out of a spirit, and Allah attributed it to Himself because it was with His Order.’

Allah says recounting the incidence when Jesus was born and the wordings of Jesus “…. Then she pointed to him. They said: How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?’ Jesus replied to them straight away, even though he was a child in the cradle: “He [‘Eesa (Jesus)] said:

‘Verily, I am a slave of Allah, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet; And He has made me blessed wheresoever I be, and has enjoined on me Salaah (prayer), and Zakah, as long as I live. And dutiful to my mother, and made me not arrogant, unblest.” Qur’an 19:27-33

Clear evidence that Jesus has no share in divinity

Allah knows Best  

Almighty Allah is the highest and most knowledgeable, and the attribution of knowledge to him is the safest.

Right from Almighty Allah and wrong from me and Satan

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
