Does Islam believe in Jesus Christ?


religious symbols

 Islam is the last divine religion in the world that was delivered by the last of prophets Mohamed (peace be upon him). It has a very inclusive doctrine. It believes in all the divine scriptures the Torah (given to Moses), the Gospel (given to Jesus), the Psalms (given to David), and the Scrolls (given to Abraham), plus the Quran (given to Mohamed). It also believes in all the previous messengers from Adam to Jesus Christ (peace be upon them all). However, this religion is constantly accused of baseless claims such as degrading women and hating all non-believers plus many other false stereotypes. In BriefTruth we have logically confuted the claim of degrading women in the article "does Islam degrade women?". And in this article we are going to answer the question “ does Islam believe in Jesus Christ? And what does it say about him and his mother Mary (peace be upon them all)? 

 Does Islam believe in Jesus Christ?

The brief answer is that Islam does not only believe in Jesus Christ but also honours him and his mother Mary. The name of Jesus has been mentioned in the Quran twenty-five times more than the name of the prophet Mohamed (peace be upon them all) who was not mentioned by his proper name four times only. Moreover, a whole chapter in the Quran is named after the mother of Jesus Mary. Yet no chapter is named after the prophet Mohamed’s mother, father, or wives. 

Actually, an entire chapter of the Quran was named after Jesus’ mother Mary (Mariam (19)). and here are some verses form it:

 [Jesus said], "And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path." (19:19)                                                    

"And they say, "The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son (88). You have done an atrocious thing(89 Whereby almost the heavens are torn, and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall in ruins,(90)That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son(91)And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son(92)There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant.(93)"
Chapter Mary (19) (verses 88 to 93)
 Jesus christ is also mention in many other chapters:
Al-Baqarah (2)

Indeed, We gave Moses the Book and sent after him successive messengers. And We gave Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the holy spirit. Why is it that every time a messenger comes to you ˹Israelites˺ with something you do not like, you become arrogant, rejecting some and killing others? [Surah Al-Baqarah; 2:87]

Ali-Imran (3)

Say, O Prophet, We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants; and what was given to Moses, Jesus, and other prophets from their Lord-we make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we fully submit. [Surah Ali-Imran; 3:84]


There are many other verses like these that you can find them all here 

There also many outstanding hadiths of the messenger of Allah Mohammed (peace be upon him about Jesus) to mention only few examples:

Volume 3, Book 43, Number 656: Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it (as charitable gifts).

 Further, in one narration, Prophet Muhammad said: 

"Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different but their religion is one."

You could find all the other hadiths about Jesus Chrsit here


Islam believes in Jesus Christ as one of the greatest prophets of God, and as the son of his mother Mary (peace be upon them all). Moreover, Muslims believe that the Messiah who will return one day to fight the Antichrist and set justice on earth is Jesus Christ, not Mohammed (peace be upon them all).

What happened to a Christian lady after she had read the Quran?

 What happened to a Christian lady after she had read the Quran? Due to the enormous media campaign targeting Islam and Muslims and associating all the terrorist events to the Islamic background of the perpetrator rather than to his criminal record or mental health as is the case when the perpetrator is a white western person, most non-Muslims including Christians start hating or at least fearing Islam and its followers. As an expected consequence, ordinary people falsely believe that the Quran is full of hateful verses and encourages its readers to hate, attack, and even kill the non-believers. This has resulted in a wave of hate and racist attacks targeting Muslim minorities and Muslim immigrants all over western countries and it is getting bigger and bigger every day. However, media outlets are not the only factor to blame for this hate wave. The audience's laziness and their tendency to hate others based only on what they hear about them without any little effort to investigate
