Lot of Ayahs in the Quran proves that Jesus Christ is God who came in flesh - part 1
Jesus said “by permission of Allah” and that makes him God who came in flesh
We already saw some of that evidence in a previous article, to read this one follow this link
But wait I know what will the Muslim say when he read the title, the Quran explicitly denied Jesus divinity in
ٍSurah Al Mayda 5:17
They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of Mary. Say, "Then who could prevent Allah at all if He had intended to destroy Christ, the son of Mary, or his mother or everyone on the earth?" And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. He creates what He wills, and Allah is over all things competent.
So this is the only ayah that denied Jesus being Allah in the whole Quran, but if their are others that prove Jesus is God, what does that mean??
It means as in a lot of aspects the Quran is inconsistent and contradicts itself
Now in this articles and next ones we will present the case for divinity of Jesus
Allah says “By permission of Allah” in handful of ayahs
We will present several ayahs as example and after that we will explain
Surah Al Nesa 4:64
And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah . And if, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, [O Muhammad], and asked forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and Merciful.
So obviously Allah is talking in this ayah because he says “We did not send any messenger” but why then in the same statement says “by permission of Allah”?? Should not he say “by our permission”????
The same can be found in the following ayahs
Surah Al Raad 13:38
And We have already sent messengers before you and assigned to them wives and descendants. And it was not for a messenger to come with a sign except by permission of Allah . For every term is a decre
Surah Fatir 35:32
Then we caused to inherit the Book those We have chosen of Our servants; and among them is he who wrongs himself, and among them is he who is moderate, and among them is he who is foremost in good deeds by permission of Allah . That [inheritance] is what is the great bounty.
Surah AT-TAGHABUN 64:10-11
But the ones who disbelieved and denied Our verses - those are the companions of the Fire, abiding eternally therein; and wretched is the destination. No disaster strikes except by permission of Allah . And whoever believes in Allah - He will guide his heart. And Allah is Knowing of all things
Surah Ghafir 40:78
And We have already sent messengers before you. Among them are those [whose stories] We have related to you, and among them are those [whose stories] We have not related to you. And it was not for any messenger to bring a sign [or verse] except by permission of Allah . So when the command of Allah comes, it will be concluded in truth, and the falsifiers will thereupon lose [all]
So the same pattern repeated again several times, Allah is talking and then suddenly shifts to say “by Allah permission” instead of naturally saying “by my permission”.
Maybe Allah after all is not one simple God but rather is one triune god???? At least when Jesus says “by Allah permission” that does not deny him divinity as we will see in the next
Jesus also said “By permission of Allah”
We find that in
Surah Al Omran 3:49-51
And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], 'Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah . And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead - by permission of Allah . And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.
And [I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me.And [I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me.
Indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is the straight path
Now Muslims, I know you will say do not forget that in Surah 3:51 Jesus said “Allah is my Lord and your Lord”, and yes when Jesus came in flesh as a complete man the father is his lord, that does not conflict with himself being also God, again refer to the linked article we gave before that Jesus is Lord but he humbled himself and came in flesh as a servant
But now Jesus saying “by permission of Allah” now falls in the same pattern in the ayahs presented before, and hence this does not deny him divinity
Also you have 3 deeds only Allah can do but so is also Jesus, because Jesus is God the Son who came in flesh
Think about it talking a permission from God the father is a different aspect that does not conflict with the aspect of capability that Jesus have common with God to do the following unique to God and Jesus
The Quran admits that Jesus Christ is God the Creator
According to Quran only God can create and no one else in existence can create, we find that very clearly in
Surah Fatir 35:3
O mankind, remember the favor of Allah upon you. Is there any creator other than Allah who provides for you from the heaven and earth?There is no deity except Him, so how are you deluded?
So how does bondmen recognize God?? The one who creates, even if he came in human form and their is no deity except him
One of the 99 names for Allah in Islam is “Al-KHALIQ” meaning the “The Creator”
Surah Fatir 15:86
Indeed, your Lord - He is the Knowing Creator
Surah Al-Haj 22:73
O people, an example is presented, so listen to it. Indeed, those you invoke besides Allah will never create [as much as] a fly, even if they gathered together for that purpose. And if the fly should steal away from them a [tiny] thing, they could not recover it from him. Weak are the pursuer and pursued.
So Allah is challenging false deities by the only one thing that differentiates between false Gods and the one true God and that is creation
But we so in Surah Al Omran 3:49-51 Jesus saying:
I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah
And in Taqi Usmani translation we find a more accurate and closer to the original arabic
Jesus said “I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that is, I create for you from clay something in the shape of a bird, then I blow in it, and it becomes a living bird”
So who created the bird in this Ayah??? Be honest to yourself Muslim brother, say it “Jesus did”, Jesus created the bird!
Who blow into it the the breath of life??? Jesus Christ
Who is the true deity that humbled himself as a slave to save Humanity? Jesus Christ
So Jesus separate deity from God??? No the bible has the answer for you
In John 10:30 Jesus says
I and my Father are one
Also read how The Quran didn't deny that Christ the Lord was not ashamed to come as a servant
