The condition of religion

Firstly religions are a way of promoting union of purity between clergies, and this is not a discriminative report, but an expressive overview of the religions. The Qur’an in a way resorts to personal reference of characters such as Allah himself, when it says in Surah 18:50, And when we said to the angels, ‘Bow yourselves to Adam’; so they bowed themselves, save Iblis; he was one of the jinn, and committed ungodliness against his Lord’s command. Notice how Iblis is mentioned here, it’s due to this addition of the Bibles Text, in Genesis 3:3-5, but God did say, ’You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

The serpent being Iblis is said to be deceitful and disobedient already than in the Qur’an which states that he rebelled amidst the creation. To relapse to the personal reference, we observe in Genesis 1:1, in the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth. This reflects the recipient who was witnessing to the magnificence of his creations and how they came about through listening to the Lord himself whilst the Qur’an is witnessed as if the Lord had taken the control over a being whilst he was recording the acts being described.

Qur’an in a way denies superior authority to Jesus as one under another’s authority besides God himself as stated on a Prophetic Commentary about Qur’an, Vol.6, Book 60, No. 3; …Jesus will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking, go to Muhammad the Slave of Allah whose past and future sins were forgiven by Allah.’ Where else the Bible states Jesus never denied responsibility even those beyond the mortal’s grasp, for he simply stated in Mark 10:27, ‘And Jesus looking upon them saith, with men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.’ Never did once Jesus transfer his authority to another and never shall it happen, only will he make one partaker of his reign as helper as stated in Revelation 3:21, ‘To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.’

In Surah 5:68, “Say: ‘People of the Book (Christians and Jews), you stand for nothing until you observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which is revealed to you from your Lord.” In Philippians 4:8, Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, … pure, … lovely, … of a good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things. Thus it clearly indicates the accord of the religions, that as long as it’s the Lord’s tidings they deserve acceptance. As it’s also evident in Surah 5:48, “And to you We have revealed the Book with the truth confirming what was revealed before it in the other Books, and standing as a guardian over it.”

Thus we observe the belief of Islam upon Jesus in Surah 3:45 “The angels said to Mariam: ’Allah bids you rejoice in a Word from Him. His name is Al-Masih, Isa the son of Mariam. He shall be noble in this world and in the next, and shall be favored by Allah.” In Surah 6:101 “Creator of the heavens and the earth! How can he have a son when he has no consort?” Thus we see the reply in John 10:38, “But if I do (the works that is), though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.” Then it concludes that Islam clergy has faith upon the manifestations of Jesus, yet not in his proclamation of being God’s son.
