Jesusp was a Prophet and Messenger of God. He called to the oneness of God. He never claimed divinity for himself, nor did he ever ask to be worshipped.

He was born of a virgin. This was one of the many miracles regarding Jesusp given by God. Jesusp was born without a father. God says in the Qur’an, “Truly the likeness of Jesus with God is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust and then said to him ‘Be!’ and he was.” [Qur’an 3:59] God created Jesusp as He created everything else in existence. Jesusp, Adam and Eve were all uniquely created: Jesusp was created without a father; Adam and Eve were created without a father or a mother. The rest of us were all created with a mother and a father. To believe that Jesusp is the begotten son of God or that God has any relatives such as a father, mother, son, or daughter, gives the attribute of procreation to The Creator. Muslims believe this to be polytheism and it is absolutely forbidden in Islam. Likewise, giving attributes of The Creator to His creation is a great sin, which in Islam is clearly in opposition to monotheism. This belief is in contradiction to the teachings of all the Prophets and Messengersp of God. God is beyond any created or human attributes. Jesusp is the Messiah, the Christ, the word of God, the anointed one, sent by The Most Merciful God as a Prophet and Messenger.

God also informs us that Jesusp, the son of Mary, is not dead, and that He raised Jesusp up to Him. Muslims believe that the return of Jesusp will be a sign of the Last Days. When Jesusp returns, he will not come in the capacity of a Prophet and Messenger to bring new revelations. Rather, he will be the commander of the faithful and will destroy the antichrist, who will have brought to the earth enormous trials and evil. Jesusp will follow the final manifestation of the law that was revealed to Muhammadp.
