The earliest Christians to make contact with Muslims noticed these parallel teachings and, for this reason, agreed to protect the Muslims from persecution. These Muslims made the difficult journey there, only to be pursued by agents of the Meccan oligarchy. We were a people in the depths of ignorance.
We adored idols, we ate dead bodies, we lived in immorality, we cut off our families, we were evil to our neighbors, and the strong among us consumed the weak. We were like this until Allah raised a Messenger from among us. We recognized his lineage, his truthfulness, his trustworthiness, and his temperance. He called us to Allah Almighty, that we worship Him exclusively and renounce what we used to worship besides Him of stone statues and idols.
He prohibited us from vulgarity, telling lies, consuming the wealth of the orphan, and slandering chaste women. He commanded us to worship Allah alone and not associate anything with Him in worship.

He commanded us to pray, to give charity, and to fast. He enumerated the matters of Islam, so we believed in him and had faith in him. We followed him in what he brought, so we worshipped Allah alone and did not associate anything with Him. We forbid what was forbidden for us and we permit what was permitted for us.
The Negus began to weep until his beard was soaked, as well as his bishops wept until they soaked their pages, when they heard what was recited to them. You are released. By Allah, I will never surrender them. This alone is enough to establish a just peace between Christians and Muslims, as it was for the early Muslims and the Abyssinian Christians. Some scholars discouraged any reference to the previous scriptures or apocryphal Israelite sources, while others were vigorous in their defense of using them. Nonetheless, the early Muslims were eager to circulate sayings they had obtained from Jewish and Christian sources, often espousing themes common to Abrahamic faiths.
These reports were especially plentiful in the early literary genre of piety, asceticism, and righteousness al-zuhd. As you reap, so shall you sow. Blessed is he whose speech is the remembrance of Allah, whose silence is reflection, and whose observation is a lesson, who controls his tongue, whose house is sufficient, who weeps for his sins, and from whose evil the people are safe. O son of Adam, be disinterested in what people own and they will love you, be content with what Allah has allotted for you and you will be the wealthiest of people, love for people what you love for yourself and you will be a believer, do not harm your neighbor and you will be a Muslim, and do not laugh too much as it will deaden the heart.
The classical exegete Ibn Kathir d. Verily, I fear successors after me and my wife has become barren, so grant me an heir from Yourself, who will inherit me and the house of Jacob, and make him pleasing to my Lord.
We have not given anyone before him this name. It is easy for Him, as He had created you before when you were not yet a thing. So he came out to his people from the chamber and inspired them to glorify Allah morning and evening. Peace be upon him the day he was born, the day he dies, and the day he is brought back to life. This passage more or less reaffirms the narrative in the beginning of the Gospel of Luke.
This was not quite like the virgin birth, but it was a miracle nonetheless. John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. O you who have faith, when you stand for prayer, then wash your faces and your arms to the elbows, and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles.
If you are in a state of ritual impurity, then purify yourselves. When a Muslim or a believer washes his face in ablution, then every sin that he committed with his eyes will be washed away with the last drop of water. When he washes his hands, then every sin that he committed with his hands will be washed away with the last drop of water. When he washes his feet, then every sin that he committed with his feet will be washed away with the last drop of water, until he emerges purified from sin. Verily, You are the Hearing, the Knowing.
Al-Nawawi d. Mention in the Book, Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east. She veiled herself in seclusion from them. Then We sent to her Our Angel in the form of a well-proportioned man. It is a matter already decreed. The pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree.
Shake the trunk of the palm tree towards you and ripe dates will fall upon you. Eat, drink, and be comforted. They would obviously suspect her of having committed adultery, something especially scandalous given her place in the family of priesthood. Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. O sister of Aaron, your father was not an evil man, nor was your mother unchaste! He has given me the Book and made me a prophet. He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined prayer and charity upon me for as long as I live, and to be dutiful to my mother and He has not made me an obstinate tyrant.
Peace is upon me the day I was born, the day I will die, and the day I am raised to life. Some critics of Islam have pointed to this passage as an alleged historical error since Mary was not literally the sister of Aaron. This criticism, then, is simply a misinterpretation of the verse. Thus, We blew into her garment from Our Spirit. She believed in the words of her Lord and His Books, and she was devoutly obedient. Ibn Hajar writes:. The criterion of prophethood for him is that whomever an angel came to from Allah with a judgment related to a command, a prohibition, or a sign of what is to come, then they are considered to be a prophet.
In sum, the figures of Zechariah, John, and Mary in Islam, peace be upon them, are highly revered examples of faith and virtue. And she who guarded her chastity, so We blew into her garment from Our Spirit, and We made her and her son a sign for the worlds. Whoever testifies that there is no God but Allah alone without any partners, and that Muhammad is his servant and his messenger, and that Jesus is the servant of Allah, son of his maidservant, His word which He bestowed upon Mary and a spirit from Him, and that Paradise is the truth and Hellfire is the truth, then Allah will admit him into any of the eight gates of Paradise he wishes.
Each of these titles has a specific meaning in Islam which differs from its interpretation by Christians. Classical Muslim exegetes have described some complementary interpretations of the title Messiah.
According to Al-Tabari d. Like the word used in reference to the virgin birth, the spirit is likened to the creation of Adam from nothing. Thus when I have formed Adam and blew into him from My Spirit, then fall down in prostration to him. That is, Jesus was a spirit created by Allah and is under the ownership of Allah, not that Jesus shares in the essence of Allah.
Unlike Christianity, Muslims do not believe that the Holy Spirit is itself part of Allah or shares anything in the divine essence. We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear evidence and supported him with the Holy Spirit. As such, Muslims do not believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead in the Trinity. I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead, with permission of Allah. I tell you what you eat and what you store in your houses. Verily, in that is a sign for you, if you are believers. Miracles function to inspire faith in the believers, in addition to the prophetic teachings themselves.
One of the most famous miracles in the New Testament is the resurrection of Lazarus.
Provide for us, as You are the Best of Providers. It is said that what was sent down was some portions of barley bread and fish. Some people ate and then left. Other people came, ate, and then left, until everyone had eaten and there was still some left over. And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.
Because they had faith, Allah gave them the sign they asked for but with the following warning:. The Angel Gabriel came to him and told him that he could turn the Mount Safa into gold for them, but if they rejected faith afterward they would be severely punished; otherwise, the door of repentance and mercy would remain open. Some water was brought to the Messenger of Allah and he placed his hand in the vessel and ordered people to perform ablution.
The people recognize that it was they who were guilty of sin and not the Servant Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours. Hosea is about Israel too. He had God's favor even though not the people's. Abodah Zarah 9a: "It is sin that delays the golden age which by every reckoning should have begun long ago. Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. In this reading, it was one of the disciples who heroically stepped forward to save his beloved prophet from a gruesome death and humiliation.
