Do Muslims Believe in Jesus?
Yes. Muslims do believe in Jesus, but not in the way that Christians do. Muslims believe that Jesus was God’s Messenger to humanity. They also believe in the virgin birth and the miracles he performed, like giving life to the dead, etc. Muslims don’t believe that Jesus was killed or crucified by the Jews or the Romans. Rather, it was made to appear as though he was. Most Muslims of the mainstream believe that one of the disciples of Jesus accepted to be crucified in his stead, and that Jesus was taken up to Heaven before his enemies could get hold of him. Muslims also believe in the Anti-Christ and that Jesus will return before the end of time to kill him and to clear his name of the blasphemies, like the statement that he is God, son of God, or one sharing in the godhead (Trinity). He is referred to in the Koran as ‘A Word From God’ (Logos) [3:39, 3:45] and ‘A Spirit from Him’ [4:171]. The Koran says of his miraculous birth,“Verily the parable of Jesus with God is as the parable of Adam. He created him from dust, and then said, “Be.” Then, it is.”
