What the Quran Says About the Birth of Jesus Christ



We take a look at what the Quran, the religious text of Islam, has to say about Jesus and Christmas.

Many people don't know that the Quran talks about Jesus Christ.

The Holy Book of Islam actually talks about who Jesus is and how he lived. In fact, both Islam and Christianity have some things in common when it comes to Jesus.

Both the Bible and the Quran give details about the birth of Jesus. Christians believe that the angel Gabriel gave Mary the news of his birth; Muslims believe the same.


The Quran 3:45 states, Then came the time when the angels said: 'O Mary! Behold, Allah has chosen you, and made you pure, and exalted you above all the women in the world


Unlike Christians who believe Jesus was born in a manger, Muslims believe He was born under a palm tree.

Another difference is that Muslims see him only as one of God's chosen prophets, while Christians see him as the Son of God.

This is evident from Quran 4:171, which states, "Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, was a messenger of Allah."

According to Yusif Ali, one of the most famous Quranic translations into English, Jesus says in 19:30: "I am truly a servant of Allah: He has given me revelation and made me a prophet."

It is interesting that Muslims see Jesus only as a prophet, but believe that he is in heaven and performed miracles during his lifetime.

Allah said to Jesus in 3:55, Yusif Ali, "O Jesus! I will take you to myself and raise you to myself and free you from those who blaspheme you.

" I will make those who follow you superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection: then you will all return to me."

Despite the differences, both Islam and Christianity agree that Jesus is an extremely important figure.

Do you also know Jesus is mentioned at least 25 times in the Quran?
