Imam SIraj Wahhaj talks about Jesus in Islam. A common unknown fact amongst Christians and members of other faiths is that Islam and Muslims hold the Prophet Jesus, son of Mary, very high. Imam Siraj Wahhaj teaches us about Jesus in Islam.
In Islam, Jesus is a Messenger of Allah (God) and the Messiah who was sent to guide the Children of Israel with a new scripture, the Gospel. The belief in Jesus (and all other messengers of God) is required in Islam, and a requirement of being a Muslim. The Quran mentions Jesus by name twenty-five times. It confirms miraculous birth of Jesus to Mary. Imam Suhaib Webb discusses briefly his life and miracles.
The Qur’anic narrative of the story of Mary and Jesus thousands of years ago points to vices that plague the world today—derision, arrogance, abuse and ultimately, having a poor opinion of others. These spiritual diseases are at the root of much of the disharmony of the modern human condition, whether in debates about theology and methodology or the mundane minutia of petty matters between neighbors. How does the story of Mary and Jesus (peace be upon them) teach us to both spiritual purify ourselves from these maladies and deal with the haters?
